Goodbye Dio

17 Nov

To the excitement of many, this will be my last post on this site (or any other).  I have accomplished everything I have set out to do.  After months of posting and hours away from my personal life, I have accomplished that which I set out to do.  To cover a friend. 

If misdirection and misinformation is your purpose, keep it.  We are, ultimately, on our own anyway.  You have done nothing but create drama.  Where none is needed.  You hate.  You hate Oath Keepers.  You hate all Police.  You hate this, you hate that.  But I don’t see you dong a damn thing which qualifies as sacrifice, which will make a difference.  Until you can stand up, and give.  Keep it.

On my blog site I put up a quote.  It says:

Those who want to reap the benefits of this great nation must bear the fatigue of supporting it.

It says, ‘support’.  Try it sometime.  (I do.  And who crucifies me for it?  The so-called Patriots!)  You might just be surprised.  And if you do, and things still do collapse, at least you will know.  You will know.

Here is the whole story.

Diogenes and I have known each other for about 8 years now.  Met on-line while he was living up in Cincinnati. 

I watched him jump, eagerly, into the Patriot community.  I watched him give of himself to help organize that which was not possible.  What you people call a “tribe”.   I watched him invest his meager income and savings into establishing friendships that he would be able to count on.  To belong.

He came though here on his way South to attend some so-called Pat-Com bullshit, with so-called Patriots.  Paranoid minions.  A crew of misfits trying to create either a past time for their own dull lives, or a living that they cannot accomplish in the normal world of work and sacrifice.  People who live off of the fear of others.  Fears which these parasites not only live off of, but ferment.

When Dio left the blog world for the world of physical preppers and militias he was full of hope.  He wanted to ‘make a difference’.  He traveled to Texas, met people at a Pat-Com, and then went back to his home in Kentucky.  Then, I believe, to Ohio.  He met and made friends in each.  He was a player.  

Then he decided to return to Texas to attend another Pat-Com, and he decided to hang around for a while.  To determine if Texas was the place where he wanted to make his stand.  He hung around to help a friend in Central Texas.  It was during that time that something occurred.  I have no idea what happened, but everything changed for him.  It had something to do with those of the South.  Those of the cesspool area I’ll call Houston.  (Actually, just North of Houston in the San Jacinto County area)  It was after that, that Dio decided to return to Kentucky.  He visited with me, again, on his way back and remained here for several months.  He worked and laid out.  It seemed that with every passing day, as he made his usual contacts with those he had formed ties with, that things got worse.  I never asked, and he was man enough to never tell me what was taking place between him and the others.

Well, Dio eventually did leave here to return home.  He had come to the conclusion (on his own) to return home.  His Father was waiting.  I got the feeling that his Father needed not only Dio’s help, but his company.  I might be wrong, but I think that his father is a widower.  He patiently waiting for the return of his son.  As I watched this from the outside, I wondered if his father had accomplished a feat that I didn’t know if I could have done.   Anyway, Dio left. 

I have actually had very little coms with him since. 

Someone mentioned on a WSRA comment that the little man down South must be having a conflict with the writer of my post ‘To the flamethrowers’.  Bingo, partner!  You nailed that one.

After Dio returned, Craig (whatever his name is), and Nye, the little immigrant living down South, just kept harping on Dio’s blog site.  Ruthlessly attacking him, and anyone who might like Dio.

Did Dio get caught cheating at poker?  Did he steal something?  I don’t know.  It must have been a crime though.  A major crime.  A felony!  Like the kind that I’ve heard Carolyn committed?  The way that these two mental midgets were continuing to go after Dio, it must have been.

Then, finally, they turned their childishness onto me.  (what’s a year of blogging, when a mission is at stake?)  It took place on Dio’s blog, not their own.  It was personal.  At least I took it that way.  Then the cowards began putting up posts off of my blog on their own sites.  Accusing me of being racist and whatever they could think up.  They put up e-mails (I had quasi-met them through Dio) of correspondence when things were going well between the parties.  Then that, half-wit, Carolyn, started in on me.  Enough was enough.  I finally had what I had set out to do.  To flush them out.   All they had to do would have been to shut the fuck up.

I don’t normally (not anymore) go looking for trouble, but anyone who knows me, knows not to.  I don’t walk away.  But I will stay on the field with you like stink on a skunk.  Until you squeal.  Fear?  Yeah, right…   I haven’t ever been afraid of any man, and I don’t think I’ll start now.  Especially not with jacklegged idiots like I’m now forced to deal with.

Well, eventually, Mr. Man to the South made the mistake of committing a grievous error.  He slandered, with preposterous allegations, an entire town, its people, its attorney, its municipal judge, the DPS, and the town’s entire PD.  Enough where he will (and should) be brought in to answer his reckless allegations.  I (or better yet, the attorney) will decide when to yank this fool down a notch.  When she (our attorney is a female) does, it will be right here in Titus County, TX.   The home of Ray Price.  These allegations, along with their cheap threats, were forwarded on a couple of weeks ago.  And the fools keep it up!

Why do I do this, you may ask?  Because I can.  Because they have made it their business to attack me.  To question my ethics and morals as a man.  They have attacked everything I have fought for years to stand for.  AND because of Dio.  You see?  Dio, is all of you.  He is all of us.

A marine. An American.  A man who is divorced.  A father who is alone, and never quite been able to overcome the financial setback that created.  He is man who still believes in the flag he sacrificed for.  He is honorable, intelligent, and willing.  He suffers in an unjust world that our government has created  (try actually reading the post, to the flamethrowers), that most (from what I can see) were not mentally capable of doing). 

And he was lost.  

When he returned to Kentucky, he was disillusioned with the ‘Patriots’ (?) he had come to know.  It is my understanding that he is trying (one more time) to put life back together.  He has taken a decent job, is working diligently.  And has ceased blogging.  At least to a great extent. 

Has he gone black?  That remains to be seen.  However, as those of you who knew him, know, he has not posted in more frequency than once every two or three weeks.  Thanks to the farces in your community, we have lost his input.   Good work, you fools.

I know that we (I) have not lost Dio’s friendship or (if I should ever need it) help.  He is a player and can handle a rifle with expertise and is still physically able enough to hold a position or maneuver.  And that is more than most of you can honestly say.    

(Don’t get on their bad sides.  Don’t even come near to insulting them.  And don’t write anything that would bring their profits or motives into question.  AND do not fail to not support them in whatever it is that they profess!)

Back to the jacklegs… 

No.  I’m not gone away, and I’m not forgetting the idiot to the South.  If Carolyn wants a part of this, I will be happy to include him.  (just let me know, dumbass)  Then everyone can get back on PayPal to bail him out.  One more time.

Let it just be known, that they made a mistake.  That their foolish macho mouths have finally run them into another man who will not be intimidated.  Or wish to avoid them.  But someone who will go out of his way to seek them out.  The hunters just became the hunted.   By one who does not lose.  Relishing the contest, I look forward to what will inevitably ensue.  

This one’s for you, Dio.

    Well I hope dio keeps posting as I have enjoyed his posts and learned a lot. As for the rest of the so called “defenders of liberty”. I just picked up my ball and went home. Life is to short to deal with toxic people. There will be assholes and outright psychopaths in any group of people and I will give most everyone a chance to prove what they are but “good intentions don’t feed the Bulldog”!

    I saw how a few bloggers pulled together to help Rob and those are the people I like to hang out with on the web. Funny a lot of those same people, helped those that seem to be casting around verbal gernades. I seldom stop by those sites any more as they are not what I want in a community. Yes these people will call me names and say bad things about me. Won’t be the first time that has happened.

    I did a little sleuthing and it seems I’m Creek indian or at least some fraction. My Grand dad got a portion/section of the indian/Oklahoma territory under the Dawes act and was registered. I don’t look like any indian, when I was in Germany I got asked for directions in German as I looked like a native at least in Bavaria! It’s kind of cool though I was always told it was cherokee but looking at some of the painting and old photographs of the creek the facial structure looks more like a family album than the cherokee pics.

      And I was privileged to have been of some small help. At least that’s how I see it. We need each other. Not the misdirection of malcontent. I’ve got a cousin that is full blood Cherokee. My uncle met her Mother at a reservation after the War. After service as a tank mechanic for Patton’s third army. Anyway, she’s a cool cousin to have. Lives in OKC after a career in El Paso. Thanks, Jamie. I’ve enjoyed your input. I’ll try to stay in touch on your site from time to time!

      So true! My Mom was from there. Father found her while prepping to return to Europe, after Africa stint. He was riding the interurban and told me that he’d never seen a poorer girl. Her family had immigrated there from Sherman, TX in a covered wagon. Only God knows why! 🙂

    I hate to see Dio leave the blogosphere, if that is what I’m understanding here, I visit his site although I don’t comment very often I get a lot of good ideas that has been a help around here. It’s a shame that a few people hammer others because they don’t like what someone has to say. But it’s always been that way and always will be.

    My family lived in northeast Oklahoma when I was young, spent a lot of time in a storm shelter but I like NE Oklahoma. Wouldn’t want to live there however! My wife is a Cherokee Indian and we visit the Cherokee Nation (Tahlequah area) and really enjoy that, it’s so rich in early American history.

    Great post! I remember that picture well. I know Dio well enough to know who is the bad actor(s) here. He has always been honorable. The flamethrowers, not so much 😉 Those boys can do whatever they want but they will never avoid the bad karma they have acquired over the past few years. I take solace in that single fact. I am done with them.

    Stay safe brothers!

        Same here brother. And I think we will see each other before too long. By the way, it all started when I decided not to have a PatCom at the retreat in summer of 2012. It was my decision but Dio and Rusty both felt it was the right call. Bill didn’t seem at that upset when I told him but I understand he was livid. I do note before that it was all kumbaya with those fellas.

          As you know. You have lost nothing. It was a god-send to find these things out about them, before they could do harm to you. Believe me, they would have used every bit of correspondence against you in the public forum, if they could have. Just plain unscrupulous tactics. Without moral fiber or conscience. Who are they? Really?

          I look forward to meeting you. Dio has told me nothing but ‘good’ about you.

    Soffitrat: Honest, I’m not trying to be a smart ass — but it’s spelled C’est la vie. By the way, if you are referring to Craig the Whiner, I wouldn’t be too concerned with him — he’s a total loser who can’t keep a job and is so dumb, he actually complained about his former supervisor on his website, despite the fact that employers today read the web, insuring that he would lose his job. He also put up a photo on his website that looked to my eyes like underage porn, despite the fact that shamefully, he has a young daughter, and photographed himself holding a rifle and and sounding like a psycho. Shades of George Zimmerman. I’m surprised he hasn’t been arrested yet.

    I enjoy Dio’s website and wish he would post more frequently.

      Thank you, Lynn, and I welcome your thoughts. CC was actually the first one to begin posting what (I thought) were private e-mails. Then Nye. Then Carolyn. They are, in fact, a pretty sorry lot. I can see why Dio left them for good. If WSRA and the others are as bad, we are all in for a rougher ride than necessary and need to vacate their premises, without looking back. Made more difficult than it will already be, by idiots that go out of their way to incite the PTB and garner (otherwise) good (if not ignorant) people against those who only want to be left alone, we will attract actions which can only set us back. They (those people) are destructive to the cause of liberty, and the continued prosperity/happiness of all Americans. Keep in mind that it is ‘we’ (not the fools) who will be around to see that the necessary changes are made. Their lack of understanding of the definition, and values, of the word ‘intel’, and all that it means, are not very obvious. They go about defying the very objectives of the word. And that makes them dangerous for all of us.

      And thanks for the correction! 🙂

    Sorry to say I did stop by Bill Nye’s site and he was wondring why we weren’t supporting him and you oviously evil report on the wonderful “Knock out game” some of our urban youths do when they are bored. I’m not a racist in fact I tend to see it as more of more of an exploited have not against the haves rather than a racial thing. But I saw nothing in that post that seemed racist to me. But Bill has Screen shots of your post and put’s his own twist on what it means.

    I don’t really care what others may do. I have stopped visiting many websites when they get all worked up and start telling others what they have to do or think to be accepted. Funny they never see in themselves what they see in the progresives and socialists.

    I find it a bit ironic that my blog got tagged with an X by Bill Nye with no explaination yet I’m supposed to get all worked up over some “injustice” he sees and I’m just evil if I don’t.

    As far as Sam goes he had a great idea but is following a path I just don’t believe is in the right direction. No, I don’t have to beat him up or call him names though I think he is wrong, the future will prove how things work out and will come soon enough to us all.

    I don’t see myself as a racist or “ist” of any way shape or form. I believe any one can learn and start lifting themselves up with a little knowledge and dropping the victim mentality. Life isn’t fair, get over it. You ain’t a kid and it ain’t jr. high anymore.

    Say it ain’t so, Soffitrat. You are quitting the blog?

    You have been a voice of reason and I enjoyed each post, though I’ve not commented as much as I should.

    The patriot community needs more of you and less of Nye and Kerodin.

    • The Soffitrat

      November 19, 2013 at 7:55 pm

      Thanks for the kind words. I enjoy reading your site as well. After reading Diogenes’ post, I better understand how Nye works. That, along with the fact that he ran Arctic Patriot off, gives me the new resolve to remain. If not just to spite the poor bastard, to continue his rants. They are humorous. I just wonder if Dio is right, and this poor man is now owned. Spoiled goods.

    Saw your comment on Wannabe Rambos Society of Anarchists, good comment. Followed a link from WRSA’s blog list to San Jacinto Outlaw which seems to just be a blog of complaints about other bloggers. Left a comment there and entered the address on the screen caps that pissed him off so much and ended up here and recognised your name from WRSA. I thought the internet was bigger than that!

    Anyway, the patriot/prepper/liberty/whatever “movement” is wide open and there’s plenty of money and sycophants to be gleaned from the more credulous. Don’t fall into the trap that petty people like San Jacinto Outlaw has and spend your time taking umbrage or settling vendettas, life’s too short.

    Its too bad your quitting the blogosphere right as I stumble in, enjoy the relative sanity of meat space!

    • The Soffitrat

      November 19, 2013 at 8:18 pm

      Thanks! I’m sorry too. And I think we missed you. 🙂

      You are correct, however, that life is too short to spend on the mis-directors and malcontents. The dividers, the losers. I will promise to never do that. I received (another) e-mail from one of them today in which he is threatening now to go to the justice dept. to get me in trouble for referring to him with a woman’s name. From a guy who wants others to begin a shooting war! I was going to put it up on my site, until you brought me back.

      Perhaps there is reason to continue on. Like I replied (above) to Militia, the post put up by Diogenes today explained a lot that I did not know. I refuse to be “run off” (like AP) by the likes of those, and fear that my ”going dark” might give it that appearance.

      There are just some great people out there. In search for a place of respectful discourse and unity of purpose.

      Like my Daddy used to say, it’s like “we’re all in the Alamo. Aint’ nobody gettin out of this thing alive”. We are all in this together, and you remember of what Franklin warned his co-conspirators about hanging?

      Should I continue, never hesitate to ‘let me have it’, should you see me behaving in such a manner. And if you should ever find a reason to unload on me, I promise that you’ll never hear me kicking, ranting, and screaming. Like some do.

      I visited, and love, your own site!

      And thanks again.

    After reading Dio’s post that you provided a link to. I now understand why Bill has gone off on some wild tangents at times. I was a regular reader of his in till he posted his “To The Flamethrowers” post and that was enough for me, and people wonder why history shows that groups within the main resistance movements have their own bloody little battles between themselves.

    We need to avoid these individuals like the plague, let’s save our ammo for the true enemies of freedom.

      I agree totally, and will be finished on my end. Assuming that those two (or three) are. There is enough room for everyone, without the ad hominem attacks on each other. That is a hell of an assumption on my part, but we will see.
