I am just sitting here dumbstruck by something that just dawned on me. The level of miscalculation the size of a D9 dozer in a china shop.
Way beyond the one on one conflict.
The city people are use to living next door to other people their entire life and never personally knowing them.
They do not comprehend the level of inter-reliance and bonds that tie country populations together.
In the country, you know your neighbors. I mean you KNOW your neighbors.
I have lived in this area my ENTIRE life. Over 30 years to be exact. My family has lived in this area for over 100 years. My neighbors have know me
since I was born. My dad has known them since they was born. I have grown up with them, I have went to school with them. We have hunted together. I am
welcome at their house any time of day, they are welcome at mine. We work with each other on a daily basses. They lend me a favor, I do the
To say that I would trust them with my life, is an understatement. To say that they would trust me with their life is a proven fact. They have done so
in times past. All my neighbors are armed, Some are heavily armed.
If Someone attacked me, and my neighbors become aware of it, the people attacking would be getting fire from three sides , not including my own
Heck, when I killed a couple big snakes at my uncles place across the creek there was more than 15 people over there prodding and looking at it in
less than 20 minutes. If someone was shooting at me in my house, I would hate to think of the response that would come to greet them. Everyone within
a half mile would be converging on the place with guns and ammo.
And even if they did manage to kill me and get in the house, do you honestly think for a minute, that the neighbors would just sit back and let them
go about their business from that point on. You would have to be smoking something really good to think that.
They could never step out of the house again. If they did, there would probably be 20 or 30 people with rifles lined up ready for a kill shot. Yes, I
know over 20 people that would be waiting with batted breath to kill someone, or something that hurt or killed me. That isn’t something that I even
have to think about, it is a fact of life.
They may take the land, but that is the last thing they will ever do.
Same thing for someone messing with my neighbors. You better expect a 308 round headed straight at you if you show any force against them. If I wake
up the next day and I find out that someone has hurt or killed any of them and moved into their house. And I will find out…….. I have a good
sniping position and I won’t eat, or sleep until I put the kill shot on them.
So, for people that think like that, don’t even think about coming around here and trying that. Reality check. You will not survive the experience.
