why don't you ever stand up for yourself?
i like having a #ing job
sometimes you have to put up with bull#.... it's called life
no you don't. nothing will ever change as long as you don't stand up for yourself
I can't change the world.... and bitching at sheep just makes my life harder....sometimes you have to choose the lesser of 2 evils
well, you could stand up for what is right
my survival is what is right
no its not
you are miserable yet you hang on to what is causing it
that doesn't make sense
i am miserable..... but going after them isn't going to change anything
i can't change the sheep. all i can change is myself.
bitching at sheep isn't going to change them.... it is just going to make them mad and turn them against me..... making my life harder.....
do you see?
you don't have to bitch to get your point across
and so waht if they are against you... and your life doesn't have to be hard
you never stand up for whats right.
i am not taking sides on this one...... i'm sorry, but that's the way it is
you never take sides
and to not take sides says a lot
my side is the only one that matters to me, and my side means my own survival
yeah... no matter how miserable it makes you
you will always be lonely as long as you think like that
you need to read some of those Ayn Rand books.....
she talks alot about it
Stella says:no thankS... not if it makes me selfish and not think of anyone but myself

Things have advanced so far that (in my opinion) the chance we had to speak up and do something (ANYTHING) has already passed us by and we missed it. It is my belief that revolution is all that is left, I just wonder what will be the spark that ignites the power keg.

We have to be smarter and more strategic next time and the time after that. Until the PTB gets it. We are in charge.

here is my take on it and it may not be too popular....here it is though.
i feel like 99.9% of us are not in a position to do anything and the .1 that i in a position don't want to for whatever reason..
my answer and what i am planning to do again, for various reasons is simply to be ready.
i have a lot of training in wrestling and muay thai and other grappling but i am slow these days....i have titanium in my back so i can't really book.
so, i have several guns and lots of ammo. a few telescoping clubs cause i am pretty good with them....
i have food and water....working on other stuff like meds and the like...
the fuzz is clearly already out of control BUT, at this time there is still a crappy system that we are forced into...if we get leaned on and rocked by some cop out there and we bust his ass, we're in deep doodoo....
for NOW, i think we have to knwo our rights, fight for our rights when WE are in a situation, and comply without being mr submissive punk givin the cops a swelled head, begging them...
i say be ready to be tazed but don't cry for them not to....you think there are no cops out there that get off on that?
then, there will be a catalyst and it will be martial laws and the normals rules/laws won't apply anymore.....then, you stay safe and fight back in whatever capacity you can....
if you are one of those gung ho patriot types and want to go join the local militia to fight then go.....
me, i plan to dig in and defend my wfe and son and just go with it....
what else can i do?
maybe i am a wuss but i do not want to die off away from my family...i would do no good out in the militia worried about my fam.....i would be much better served staying put and waiting for them to come kicking in doors and then i would fight till i died and would not hesitate.....
thats my plan....best i can come up with due to resources, location, physical ability...

Thanks for the post and the link. It certainly was an interesting and eye-opening history lesson but, call me obtuse - I just didn't get it. How will this help us organize to prevent the loss of our Constitutional rights or, in your assessment, take back our government? Original Jurisdiction? I thought it was a little out there for the average person. No offense but I am looking for something a bit more practical.
