What happened

Tonight on the news, I saw a quote attributed to General Colin Powell, where he stated Americans want to pay their fair share of taxes; they want more government in their lives. Somehow, I think the Veterans Administration must have missed a wounded Veteran, because General Powell has either suffered a major head trauma, or gone insane. Perhaps that language is too strong; it could be that General Powell is simply talking to a specific group of Americans. I for one would love the Government to go away and take the IRS with them. I don’t want a handout, I don’t want food stamps, or welfare, I don’t even want the Government to take care of me in my old age. I just want them to leave me alone to succeed or fail on my own merits… and I think a lot of you would agree.

We are becoming far to dependant on our own Government; we ask it to take care of our poor, our poor are there because of the Government, not in spite of it. We ask the Government to educate our children, and yet our literacy rate has been in a steady decline since the creation of the Department of Education. What was once a strong, wealthy and proud country is more and more becoming a County that manufactures none of it’s own goods, provides none of it’s own services. Increasingly we depend on our enemies for not only the energy to power our cities, but the wealth to spend on the foreign goods with which we think we must fill our homes.

If we do not soon wake from this terrible slumber, we will find all of our liberties taken from us, not stealthily by a thief in the night, but given up by our own hand to the greatest con ever. As Edmund Burke said, “all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing”, let us not be the generation that finally gave up the last vestiges of our freedom, honor and dignity to the slavering jaws of the Masses, the faceless Mob. We owe not only our children and grandchildren the blessings of liberty, but we owe it to our progenitors who left it to us.

Last night as the sound of Celebrations for Cinco de Mayo died away, I lay in bed thinking of all the things we’ve received from our friends south of the border. One of the things that struck me was the new strain of influenza. Where, I ask sounding like Martin the Martian, is the earth shattering Pandemic?

Every year over 30,000 people die from “regular” flu, yet this new mutation is supposed to close down cities and towns across the globe and school children should be kept home lest they contract this horrible disease and die.

Correct me if I’m wrong, not being an epidemiologist, but I would think that a “Pandemic” would be a little more -exciting- (probably not the best choice of words) where are the thousands of cases, and the bodies in the streets. The “Mass Media” s trying to make this into the next Black Plague, and I’ve only heard of a handful of fatalities. Terrible for the families affected, but not what I’d class as a global health crisis.

So, not seeing the impending doom spouted by the “Mass Media” I begin to wonder, what am I not seeing? Is this just a really slow news cycle, so they have to whip up a story? Are they hiding something? Could there be even worse news brewing in the background? What were the results of the bank “stress tests” is my bank ready to collapse? Is yours?

All truly depressing thoughts, but worse yet is the thought that runs through my head like a dog chasing it’s tail, is there some sort of collusion between the “Mass Media” and the Administration? Is there something brewing (pun intended) behind the denigration of several thousand (tea party) protesters in cities all around the country by the Media at large? Are ‘They’ beginning to be concerned that Glenn Beck might be right, and We surround them? How long can ‘They’ continue to exert dominance once ‘We’ realize we out number them?

Welcome to the Serenity Valley Project

Maybe some of you are Firefly Fans (Browncoats), or maybe you came to love the idology in the Serenity movie, maybe some of you are just fed up to the tippy top of your pointy little heads with the way the meddlesome folks in Government treat you.

Anyway you look at it, there are people that are just as irritated as you are...

The purpose of this Blog is to find enough folks ready and willing to stop letting the Bosses rule the roost, our country was founded by individuals, not governments. If this blog is successful, and I measure success by enough people getting together to start a town the way they used to start, not continue to live by "THEIR" arbitrary rules. If this works somewhere in the Country we individualists will find a home, one where we can be responsible to our God (or Gods), our Community, our Family, and our Selves.

This isn't a call to the faithful, or the first recruitment for a new cult. Heck, it isn't even a call to arms at the beginning of a revolution (unless you mean the Beatles), this is going to be anything WE make it, THE PEOPLE who write back. IN ORDER TO make this, and the project to follow, this will need to be more than a FORM letter or A whiny protest. This will need to be MORE of an open letter, nothing PERFECT, but then what is in our UNION.

I wish all of you good luck in finding the people in your lives with the same Ideals and Visions...
