According to Webster: “def·a·ma·tion,” n., To damage the reputation, character, or good name of by slander or libel.
Which of course being a fair-minded American seeker of the truth, I do not disagree with Diane.
If I recall American history correctly, once we vindictive and rancorous Americans kicked the crap out of King George’s redcoats, we quested West to loot, terrorize and exterminate the native population and we did it, (according to the movies produced in Hollywood during the 40’s), wearing white hats.
For clarification; “folks wearing white “Cowboy” hats in the movies were always the good guys.”
While the guys in the black hats were always the villains…
Mmmm, ..looks like that still holds true today!
Weber, (What makes us, – us?).
For a rabbit, you definitely have your (blank) together. I just got back from a three-month deployment in Germany and my wife got me started on reading your post, great stuff.
Your Reader’s forum is my favorite, with my trophy for moron of the week going to Cherell for believing that the color of her skin is her problem.
Apparently no one ever told her that color doesn’t distinguish who a person is, character does. She should get some.
Hello Weber, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative. Folks like Cherell are, like all of us, a product of “her” environment.
According to Webster: “char·ac·ter,” The qualities or features that distinguishes one person, group, or thing from another.
In my opinion, the vast majority of folks in America are good God-fearing, decent hard-working and honest and they raise their children to see the value of obligation and self-reliance.
Albeit, as nature provides for obligation and self-reliance, it also allows for slothfulness and dependency.
Character takes sustained effort while “indolence” requires no exertion at all. Thus was born the “scalawag” …
According to Webster: “scal·a·wag,” A reprobate; a rascal.
..and/or, a morally unprincipled person.
If your atheist mother raises you to believe in socialism and communism, you have little choice other than to be a morally corrupt “unprincipled” person.
Nurture, ..not nature, created Barack Obama.
Gordon, (What makes us, – us?).
I bought a new Subaru two weeks ago, but now after reading this post and watching the video, I feel like a traitor.
Hello Gordon, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative.
Although I am a fervid conservative that believes in America and I purchase American products built by Americans if the product meets my standards for both value and for desire.
I’ve owned a lot of American cars over the last 50 years and although most all of them got me from point A to point B, not one of ‘em tickled my fancy like my…
…1966 XKE, (1971).
This is after all America, enjoy your freedom of choice.
Arlene, (Games Requiring No Equipment).
I’ve been reading your blog for two years now and I’ve left dozens of comments, I’ll be turning sixty-five on the 24th. of this month, when am I going to see me in your forum?
Like you I don’t hate Obama because he’s black, I hate him for what he’s done to America.
Hello Arlene, thank you for your loyalty and Happy Birthday. My sister Elizabeth’s birthday was on the 21st and mine is on the twenty-sixth.
Albeit over the years I’ve come to enjoy the flattering rhetoric explicated by those who publish horoscopes, in my formative years I was less than gleeful being eclipsed by Santa Claus.
The tenth astrological sign in the zodiac, originating from the constellation of Capricornus. It spans the 270–300th degree of the zodiac, corresponding to celestial longitude.
Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this area from Dec. 22, to Jan. 19, each year, and under the sidereal zodiac, the sun currently transits the constellation of Capricorn from approximately January 15 to February 14.
In astrology, Capricorn is considered an earth sign, introvert sign, and one of the four cardinal signs.
Capricorn-Sagittarius cusps (those born from December 22 to December 28) are considered to be slightly different from the typical Capricorn, being more outgoing, jovial and less ambitious and money-orientated than the Capricorn who is not born on a cusp.
Question: Do I believe in astrology?
Hating (for any reason), is a complete waste of time, while agreeing and disagreeing are unequivocally meritorious.
Again, Happy Birthday, and many happy returns, Chuck.
Preston, (Ally or Adversary?).
So far this week you’ve been batting a 1000 telling it like it is, I not only like what you write, I like the way you write it and I especially like your graphics.
As a conservative and a gun owner and as a businessman, I definitely appreciate your understanding of America a hell of a lot more than America’s protesters and dependence.
Thank you, you are definitely a saving grace to those of us who appreciate the truth.
Hello Preston, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative and for the accolades.
If I may, I’d like to take a moment here to clarify something for Evan, Donna and Tracy…
According to Webster: “ac·co·lade,” n. (in context) To praise or honor: an expression of approval; praise.
As turnabout is fair play, I appreciate your participation and your concern for America as much as you “appreciate” my posts. Because without you, I would “categorically” be that tree that falls in the forest while the world is at lunch.
Helen, (Games requiring No Equipment).
Although I enjoy everything you write, what I like most about your website is your attention to me and your appreciation of women.
I began reading your blog back when you were supporting John McCain and Sarah Palin. As a conservative it’s a no-brainer that you would support John McCain and although I’m sure you wanted McCain to win, your presentation told me that you wanted Sarah to win even more.
Hello Helen, thank you for your long support, your narrative and your avid appreciation of my blather.
My avid support for Sarah Palin was unequivocally motivated by my voracious appreciation for women, all women…
..as women are (in my opinion), in the overall scheme of life, the most underappreciated creature of all God’s creations.
Question: Would Sarah Palin be a good President?
In this writer’s opinion; “Absolutely, unequivocally, without a doubt!”
Was Sarah Palin qualified and all knowing in the realm of domestic or world affairs?
What Sarah Palin was and still is, is a decent human being, a loving wife, a concerned mother and an American patriot with an understanding of “right and wrong” a virtual infinity beyond…
..the enigma we currently employ as America’s leader.
Talk about your no-brainer, no one in the history of America has divided this nation more than Barack Obama, and he’s done it with purpose and forethought.
My current bargaining chip, and/or, ..my choice of a woman for president in 2016, for the portion of America’s population that don’t wear their rectums as hat bands, is…
Will judge Jeanine run in 2016?
Much to America’s chagrin, probably not. Nevertheless, I will continue to illustrate the advantage of exchanging the crude competitiveness of a man for the conciliate compassion of a woman when it comes to the question “simply caring.”
Come on ladies, there are as many of you, (if not more), in this nation with qualifying educations, so what’s holding you back?
And now, with Barack Obama as the incarnate example that being president of the United States requires no experience,
It is time for women to unite to ensure that America’s future will not fall into the hands of “Never Never Lands” lost boys.
If judge Jeanine isn’t inclined to step up, there’s…
Jan Brewer, Governor of Arizona.
What America doesn’t need, (in my considered opinion), is another progressive liberal of any description…
Brian, (Ally or Adversary?).
As a subscriber to this post for more than a year now, to borrow your favorite idiom, (in my opinion), this post may very well be the best thing you have ever written.
I love you man.
Hello Brian, thank you for your support, your narrative and your appreciation.
I do in fact and indeed enjoy bringing conservative folks like yourself the truth and providing my opinion now and then.
Sarah, (Before Franklin flew his kite).
Although I’m a conservative and I enjoy reading your blog, I may have to take exception to your analogy of my set, young people, as helplessly addicted to technology.
Hello Sarah, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative. With that said, I’ll now attempt to qualify my analogy without offending you.
Which of course may not be a simple task, as the only thing I actually know about you is that you are a conservative, ..you are young, ..and you own a cell, ..and/or, ..a smart phone.
A clarification if I may; As I have a 50-year-old daughter, you and I most likely don’t define young the same way.
Albeit, it is of no consequence, as no matter what age you are, I was here if it took place after December 26, 1941.
I was here when Charles Elwood, “Chuck” Yeager broke the sound barrier and I was here when Arthur Melin and Richard Knerr invented the hula hoop.
Unrelated history of course, albeit unrelated or not, history is history and when you “hopefully” reach my current age of 73, your understanding of what is truly important in life will mirror mine.
Alan, (The view from where I sit).
I retired two years ago after twenty-four years on the job with a major metropolitan city police force on the east coast that I choose not to identify.
I became a police officer because my father was a police officer as was his father before him and if I had it all to do over again, I would go to culinary school and then open a small eatery somewhere in Kansas or Missouri because, the population of this nation is no longer worth taking a bullet for.
Hello Alan, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative.
With that said; “I would very much like to add my two cents.”
I was raised to both understand and believe that America, due to our Constitution, and/or, our foundation of laws that provides more “freedoms and opportunities” than any other nation on this planet, that I was a very fortunate individual.
Which is a doctrine that I still believe in to this day, albeit to die for a nation, a state or a municipality that is led by folks more controlling and more corrupt than the worst of histories felons, are not worth dying for.
Life is way too precious and short owned to waste on frivolity and war…
According to Webster: “friv·o·lous,” adj. Unworthy of serious attention; trivial.
Greed and lust are unequivocally two of the most (frivolous), devices to plague mankind since the beginning of time, yet neither have ever been without champions.
A sad commentary on our being and a constant battle that must be waged to effect and maintain decency.
Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
