Obey, America, for Your Own Good!

I have an old Nigerian friend who has filled my head with so many traditional Igbo proverbs that I sometimes forget whether I'm recalling folksy American wisdom or folksy Igbo wisdom. (When it has anything to do with yams, it's the latter.) These days, I can't stop thinking about a sage little gem he threw my way long ago. I consulted his advice on a particularly difficult decision confronting me, and he just nodded his head and said, "Yes, a large fly has landed on your nether regions." When I raised an eyebrow in his direction, he said gravely, "Whether you swat it away or leave it there, you're in trouble." 

That seems, to me, to sum up the whole awful reality smacking freedom-minded Americans across the face day after day. We know there's something terribly wrong in our country, but there's no good way to remedy the situation without causing ourselves a great deal of pain.

  1. Looks like it's our turn to experience some pain. A lot of us have been eating cake for far too long. It's our turn.

    1. Speak for yourself, dude.
      I went through plenty of pain to get where I am, and anyone, uniformed or otherwise, who tries to take what I have sweat blood and risked my life for, is going to end up a corpse.

    1. The helots fed the Spartans, and did what they were told. The slaves fed the Romans, and Spartacus' failed rebellion aside, they did what they were told. The Japanese peasants fed the samurai, and did what they were told. The Ukraine fed Russia, and the Ukranians did what they were told after having the point proved rather elegantly that all their food could easily be taken away. History's pretty clear on that score - just because you're the feeder, that doesn't mean shit.

    2. Now do rebellions. Because there are plenty of those throughout history.

  6. Nice to see that American Thinker has learned their lesson from the threatened cut off of advertising finding by Google for allowing every day Americans to comment on the articles they publish.

    Sadly, they did have to capitulate to the threat to keep the doors open.

    Happily they didn't change their editorial position of lambasting the leftist .gov and their sycophants in the MSM on a regular basis.

    1. If it weren't for retreat, surrender, and collaborate, the American Right would have no tactics at all.

  7. “It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.”

    1. Thanks for the brief education on John Philpot Curran! Many times I will search for a word, event, person or other references online and broaden my views and awareness.

  8. A couple of my personal observations.
    First, from my work "Step left your wrong, Step right your wrong"
    Second,from my marriage "There's a 50/50 chance you're going to be 100% wrong.

  9. For those of us who are old enough to remember listening to Paul Harvey new and comment, will recall this often quote of his: "Self-government without self-discipline will not work".

  10. Well, I intend to misbehave for the remainder of my time on this planet. Covertly until I have no choice, then balls out. Sorry for all the hurt feelings. Not really.
