crotch flag


CROTCH FLAG

I make fun of irrational unthinking patriotism by describing such imbeciles as furiously rubbing their crotch with the Stars And Stripes to elicit feelings of patriotism.  You know the type.  America, love it or leave it.  If you’re going to burn the flag, wrap yourself in it first.  That sort of knee-jerk programmed robotics ( and, yes, while I’m aware the burning flag is directed at Islamists, I can guarantee you a jelly donut that those that parroted the line would sooner kill fellow citizens than see them burn the flag ) and its ilk.  If you go to fight the Imperial wars for resources, and expect your fellow citizens to pat you on your back without questioning the motivations of those who sent you, you aren’t exactly fighting for freedom, now are you?  More like blind obedience.  I love you, you are fighting for my tribe- but I also fear and hate those that sent you, knowing they will turn on me at the first whiff of profit or fear.  So, tell me, blind Federal minions, how do you explain Robert E Lee?  Do you call him unpatriotic?  He was in our military and had gone to West Point.  So, he was a soldier for the US.  Was he then unpatriotic by placing a higher loyalty to his State than the United States?  I for one call this Old School patriotism.  You are loyal to your birth tribe rather than a nation state.  Nothing wrong with fighting Celtic style, in effect a mercenary for your areas oppressors.  How else do you keep the martial skills alive?  But it is a conditional patriotism.

I can’t blindly serve allegiance to our flag.  Washington DC is an occupier and oppressor.  I go along with this out of necessity ( no one would join me in rebellion since they are well fed, so I call rebellion suicide and am content to wait for them to implode themselves without any help from me ).  Look at the flag.  The thirteen stripes are areas tricked into the Constitution, when the original Confederation was working just fine for the individual states.  Of all those stars, how many willingly wanted to be placed there, other than through picking the lesser of evils?  Do you think Utah wanted US control?  No, statehood was preferable to having no vote in Congress, or invasion.  Look at the stars forced to stay.  The Confederate states.  How about that star for Hawaii?  She was a sovereign nation until missionaries and businessmen staged a coup which was backed by our navy, then forced into statehood.  Why does any of that stir patriotism in you?  I love America as a notion, chiefly the Bill Of Rights, but not the whole thing.  And not now after the Bill Of Rights has been null and void.  Anymore, patriotism is usually someone else deciding you need to die for the federal government and those who control it.  I know it hurts, but let’s try to think for ourselves.

  1. I totally agree with your sentiment here.
    Rebellion (by violence or unmitigated non-compliance) is suicide. Jesus knew this about the pre-eminent empire of the time, when questioned about resistance he supposedly said something like 'render unto ceaser that what is ceasers' . Of course he also said that if you had a choice between a sword and a cloak choose to have the sword.
    The Bill of Rights was what made the rebellion prone colonies agree to the rest of the constitution. Everyone knew the Federal Constitution was the game plan for a proto-empire. But since they thought the Indians were savages and perfect targets for such an empire, with a 'freedom guarantee' for themselves and a lot of profit/loot to share they reluctantly took to it. It took centuries to get to the point we are now were the BOR 'freedom guarantee' is respected only with hand waving even in the most clear of infringements, so it wasn't too shabby.
    I can hope the future governments will enshrine similar rights for their citizens (note it will probably never be extended to non-citizens, including slaves/prisoners of war, resident non-citizens, juveniles, etc.) Citizens will probably be increasingly narrowly defined in most future governments, and probably in our USA as well (eventually only corporations as citizens?)...

    1. Yes, it did work great for awhile, but our original greed stayed with us and we started wanting some of the bankers profits so it was all over.

  2. Very nicely said, and I agree with all of it, as unfortunate as that might be.

  3. I'm curious Jim. Since apparently the Bill of Rights is "null and void" has anyone searched your property lately without a warrant, has anyone confiscated your guns or ammo, has anyone restricted your right to blog and offer your views and enjoy your free speech? Has anyone seriously interfered with your chosen lifestyle? Near as I can tell, the Bill of Rights is still working to a certain extent. Just sayin............by the way, if you filed a veteran's exemption on your property taxes, they would go down. Never mind.....

    1. Do you think that any LE agency would have any problem doing all the above if they decided they wanted to?

    2. I know this area is a bit touchy, but remember what I said about vets verses the FedGov. As for observing the BOR, it depends. If they don't care about you, it's all good. As soon as they set their sites on you, you have no rights. I trust you haven't forgotten that any one of us can suddenly be an enemy combatant and be held indefinately without trial. I don't think that's allowed by any stretch of the imagination. Well, in Lincolns and Lenin's imagination.

    3. All the more reason to try to maintain a low profile. Off paper guns, cash ammo and storage food purchases, try not to stick out cause they will hammer you. Good post.

    4. Yes of course, without that "goddamned piece of paper" people just like you will suddenly go insane and start searching without warrants, confiscating guns, prevent blogging, cancelling free speech and interfering with other people's chosen lifestyles.

      Oh wait, ALL of those things are being done every goddamned day IN SPITE of that piece of paper - by the very people that are bound by law to that piece of paper.

      Anyway, that piece of paper has nothing to do with me, and as far as I can tell, nobody else either. It's nothing more than a hollow figurehead, a remnant of the once decent distant past.

      Mourn as you see fit.

    5. They have collected and stored all our electronic records without a warrant or even probable cause. They don't break most of the people rights in any obvious way most of the time because there is no reason to- yet. But individuals that have come to their negative attention? Certainly. Torture (cruel and unusual punishment), Warrantless spying, etc, etc, are all happening without judicial oversight or censure. The final recourse of the people (rebellion) is - at this time at least - suicide. If the fed decides you are a terrorist (an almost undefined and nebulous term) you will just disappear, as will all your electronic and physical records and anything else deemed 'evidenciary'. No trial, no appeal, no protests allowed. If a military tribunal finds you guilty they will have you executed- and since they will first torture a confession of your guilt from you; you will be found guilty. THIS IS NOW COMPLETELY 'LEGAL' according to the commander and chief and the congress that passed the laws that when combined gave this power to the federal government.
      Like Jim said- any direct resistance is worse than futile.
      The best you can hope is that you get mostly ignored and that when the collapse hits you can keep your head far enough down that they never get around to you.

    Nothing to really see here, just another instance of the OPEC cartel protecting itself.

  5. Excellent post, the older I become, the more I realize we are not truly "free". Best thing to do is stay gray and off the radar.

    1. We all buy into the brainwashing. A few are pissed off after being screwed to research further.

I must moderate-trust me. You don't want to see what happens otherwise. Sometimes it takes awhile to respond as I only check two or three times a day. No N-Bombs, nothing to get me libeled. Otherwise, have at it. If you criticize me, make sure to praise my hair first.
