A Red Oak day

01 Jul

Work, work, work.  Nobody pays us, nobody cares. 

We hear what the Kenyan says, and he can go straight to hell. 

We’ll be warm this winter, while the lazy man stares.

At a bleak future comin, it wasn’t hard to foretell.


Red Oak

Makes this:  Red Oak

Red Oak Split

But it won’t split itself…

What have you done today?

    Oh how I love the smell of split Red Oak, I caught a hint of it just looking at the photos! One of the little pleasures of life that the “lazy man” will never know. Nor has he ever known or will know things like Liberty, pride and a sense of accomplishment or worthiness in day to day life.

    Come to think of it, neither does that asshat Kenyan. I can not imagine living such a worthless existence such as they all suffer.

      “a worthless existence such as they all suffer.”

      And shall continue to suffer.

        But many of them don’t realize that just yet. The part I’m waiting to see is when they do realize they have been lied to and used!

          And it is resulting in drastic and personal pain and suffering.

    Yep, like when food and gasoline prices get so high those that are working can no longer afford to get to the store let alone fill up their fuel tanks to get to work. Then our streets will look like those we recently saw overseas when the riots started.

    The regime exacerbates conditions that cause the wild fluctuations in prices and I believe it is done deliberately. Of course the Kenyan is isolated from all this as the taxpayers keep his food locker stocked up, I shudder to think how much that is costing us. But then, how expensive can ribs, quarts of Colt .45 and watermelon be?!

    What I find amazing is the regime is obviously pushing people toward a civil war yet they are not seeing the signs of millions of people getting their belly full of the bullshit. Like Admiral Yamamoto of the Imperial Japanese Navy has been credited with saying immediately after the cowardly attack on the Pearl Harbor Naval and Army facilities.

    “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”

        Good point ‘rat, up until now they have been left out of the conversations! It’s my belief they are directly or indirectly involved in just about everything negative in this country. And for quite a while. I remember as a kid my dad and other men talking about us needing to get out of the UN and kicking them across the pond to Europe. In addition to WWII, those men were Veterans of the Korean War and had nothing good to say about the United Nations.

        Yeah, the stench of the UN is strong now that you mentioned it! As Robert Duval’s character could have said in Apocalypse Now, “it smells like……communist bullshit”!

        With apologies to Mr. Duvall.

          Oh, they will come out soon. They can’t remain in the background forever. Not with the NIC screwing up the way he is.

    Fuck them all: what did I do to prepare is I shared my relief balm and added herbs to my kiddie pool and added flower to a few beds just becuse the are lovely. I’m doing a modified drip irrigatin system with my rain barrels and imprroving my soil via mulch and Compost. I watch the rascals in DC but I refuse to let them affect my life.

    rat I disagree with you calling Obama a nigger because the Repubs are just as vile and they are white. It’s sort of a cheap racial shot against Obama when you don’t explain the context. It’s an emotional jolt that panders to lowest of people and I think you are smarter and above that. Obama’s black skin does not bother me it is his politic and world veiw that scares the crap out of me!

    This is yor blog and your home to your ideas. But I have about 7 cords of wood ready for winter most of it elm split by my Dad but it is still in my wood pile. Added herbs and plants to my garden and working at improving soil.

    I no longer care about “progressives” of any bent or political party. I’m going to do what is best for me and my tribe. If that means I depend on my garden and some basic meds I can whip up so be it. It won’t be perfect but we will be free.

      If more people could get just as fed up. As angry. Then maybe they, too, could be half as motivated as you. But what, besides superficial and unimportant issues get Americans upset these days? Is it only when their favorite team gets blacked out from being broadcast, or their favorite game show gets cancelled? Now those are critical issues and I’m sure that would rile up most of them. But enough to inspire them to action? Doubtful. For them to assault the real issues, like the “war on women” (or anything that is not politically correct), or of a racist nature (and anything qualifies as that these days), and the gloves come off.

      But is it anger that we need? I think not. We have plenty of that,yet the people remain dormant.

      I agree that neither party has lived up to the reasons for their birth. Indeed, both are vile. We must, however, overcome the brainwashing (the indoctrination) of our past. I had to decide long ago to measure each man individually and based on his merits. Likewise, when it comes to groups, I have made my (unapologetic) decision (based on numbers, stats, and facts) on who I will associate with. In every case it will be with those of my own kind. Hence, no blacks. Now that does not necessarily preclude the black individual, just as I recognize those traits in both my friends and enemies alike. However, I know who elected the animal in the White House who would declare himself to be our master, and it twas not me and it was not you. I refuse to sugarcoat our circumstance or falsify our remedies.

      My enemies would use race against me, yet deny me the use of that same weapon? I think not. For I have freed myself to pick up (and to use) any weapon I may find lying on the field of battle. The blacks and the guilt ridden elected the beast, and for that they are declared. Am I to be self-restrained from declaring myself? And would that then not place me in that state of purgatory that is the subject of our unwillingness to declare? I speak only for myself, not wanting to realize for myself (while taking my last breath) those last words of Marlon Brando.

      It is not bravery or anger that we need to inspire us to action. It is but to declare. A matter I have (for myself) already addressed. Americans refuse to declare, and until they do, nothing will change.

      I did not choose those words for your benefit, nor to anger you. I used those words for my own benefit. Already full of both anger and resolve. It is my belief that only a declared person can be a person of action.

      Jamie I have been a Republican for many years, and I’m sorry to be associated with them. Actually I think they are worse than the Democrats. At least, in my opinion, the Democrats are more open in what they do compared to the Republicans. The Republicans are lying back-stabbing hypocrites that would have us believe they are looking out for our best interests. What a load of BS!

      The only thing I see that could save our country is kick out of ALL members of Congress and start over. Something that really pisses off this fat old Irishman is seeing like minded people on protest carrying signs reading…lets clean house…or something to that effect. Pardon me but these are friggin delusional idiots that do not understand what we are dealing with. It would really be better if they just went home and sat on the porch swing gloating over the yard signs depicting their favorite Republican candidates. This isn’t Disney Land and the Republicans are not Knights in shining armor riding in to save these dumb asses.

      I believe there is no chance this side of heaven or hell of ever getting rid of the communists in our government BY USING THE SYSTEM, since they have corrupted it to their advantage. Actually there is probably only a small chance of ridding ourselves of this blight by any other means. So we can only continue to get ready for the coming hard times and clean our guns in preparation for the storm. I’m not trying to turn this firewood prepping post into a Second Amendment issue but without the 2nd, nothing else matters. Most of the rest of the world is a prime example of that. Events here will soon evolve into a “dog-eat-dog” scenario and few people will be left standing when it’s over.

      ‘Rat I take it that is the old tree you posted about that fell some time ago?! Looks to be a lot of comforting fires piled up there, it should serve you well. Do you have a wood burning stove of some sort to cook with? We have two and are damned glad to have them.

        Jamie, I too have told the RNC to drop my name and quit calling me.

        Yes, Danny. I am looking into beginning to manufacture the wood burning stoves and home heaters. Will do that either in Mt. Vernon, Winfield, or both. Not sure which. Yet.

          With things looking the way they are (no power or expensive power) that could turn out to be a good thing, good luck with it.

          For a while I was getting junk mail from them all the time, writing back and asking them to take my name off their mailing list. They were slow understanding apparently, but they got the message with my last contact.

          I didn’t lose any sleep over it last night. Mary’s employer is a member of a women’s Republican committee in our county, she has been trying to get Mary to go attend a meeting with her for some time now. Yesterday afternoon she started in on Mary again about going and it didn’t go well, my little Indian got riled up and told her what she thought of the Republicans and her committee.

          It amazes me that people can not see there is no difference in the two parties, or at least they refuse to see it. Her husband has told her this many times but she just isn’t catching on!
