I was going to try to say something brilliant about how much it means to me to be an American, and what this nation of ours means to me, and then I read this post of the Imperial Firearms Advisor’s on that very subject. As you know, he’s an American by choice as well.

All I can say is: go read. He speaks for me too. Every last word of it.


HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

Oh! say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro’ the night that our flag was still there.
Oh! say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen thro’ the mist of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep.
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream
‘Tis the star-spangled banner. Oh! long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footstep’s pollution.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation,
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n - rescued land
Praise the Pow’r that hath made and preserved us a nation.

Then conquer we must, for our cause is just,
And this be our motto–”In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    Interesting story about Al III. For those who never looked it up, Adderall is a 50/50 mix of Amphetemine and Methamphetemine - the old 1970’s “black molly”. High test speed.

    Thanks for all of the lyrics! I was actually going to look them up, and you saved me the trouble. As to Gore’s kid, I actually feel bad for him. Obviously, he’s screwed up. Not a good start in life. I bet he’d benefit from a stint in the military.

    Ah, another July 4th spent at work, reading gun sites, blogs and other time-wasting junk.

    Then off to my second job, involving dumb animals, hot concrete, dog excrement and a hose.

    Then back to the hotel again, to fill in for a three-hour gap in the schedule….. Thereby pissing off my wife who wanted to get taken to see the fireworks.

    So a 7am-11pm shift….. And this is still better than being back in Londonistan.

    Happy Birthday USA!!!

    Due to some lousy timing, I won’t be able to enjoy any cool, refreshing adult beverages at the fireworks show this evening. I have to report to the hospital at 0630 in the morning for surgery to repair my umbilical hernia.

    Barring complications, it should be same day surgery. Being done laparoscopically, there should be minimal pain and scarring. So I would like to ask the good folks of The Empire to hoist a cold one in my stead at your celebrations this evening.

    Be excellent to each other and PARTY ON DUDES!!! Here’s to another 231+ years of American greatness!!

    Yay! Whooo hooo! One of the things I tell my Born in the USA friends is that one of the best damn things to happen to any of us was to be born in this great country. And with that great, wonderful benefit comes a great responsibility to give it to the next generation. Bloggers and other posters do a service to this country by defending and spreading the fundemental principles that define America. As the net grows, more and more people will be exposed to the truth. New generations will grow up never being contained by the Big Three Networks and the Daily Liberal Newspaper. No matter how much China and North Korea and all the rest try to stop information from reaching their imprisioned citizens, the truth will reach them.

    There is much we can gain. The future can be bright. Keep spreading the word, defend capitialism and America.

    I see that harley’s comment got erased (did you do that management?). Well good, bugs like him aren’t worth responding to on a day like this.

    I read a letter yesterday, a letter that was written in 1776. It was an appeal to the soldiers of the Continental Army to re-enlist. Their enlistments were expiring and many of them were going back home to farms and family. Speculation about the author points to General Washington, but no one has ever proven that…for the letter is simply signed by:

    A FreeMan

    It’s lengthy, too long to post here, but I’ve built a pdf file of it for you all to read on this glorious day. It’s a pretty stirring letter, written back when writing was considered an art….it’s a masterpiece of patriotism and liberty. Here it is:

    To the best friend a country could ever have:

    Thanks for standing alongside us in battle so many times. Thanks for being so generous and forgiving and downright great. Thanks for the innovations, the technology, and all the other things that are too numerous to mention.

    Sorry about not supporting you in Iraq, but know this: we ain’t fleeing from Afstan, not until the job is finished. There are plenty in this country who may disagree, but I think our friendship is about the greatest thing since sliced bread. Screw those idiots anyways. We don’t need ‘em.

    You have me outshot by like 50 yards!! hmm but you do raise a good point.. no reason a patriot cant be a atheist.. I blogged about it along time ago.. but agreed man its a complicated issue.. maybe the pledge should be mandatory and “under g-d” volunteery ?

    As much as i’m prone to go after atheism, the 1st ammandment gives us freedom of religion.. and if your religion is atheism.. l’chaim brother!

    I much rather a patriotic atheist than some liberal reform self jating jew..(DJ is going to hit me lol)

    Mominuteman, was thinking this afternoon that I gotta get my butt online to wish you well, just had 2 spinal surgery’s.. G-d be with you and come out as you went in (hopefully you’ll gain a few inches on the tool lol)

    Jaybear, actually you can vote from here, I voted dubya last election and was here in Israel.

    I would love to campeign for FRED! here in israel, there must be about 10,000 eligble US citizin here that can vote..

    Also there is a HUGE amount of students that come here to study for a year after high school, the number may be as many as 10,000.

    How many votes can I sway ? who knows! as soon as FRED! gets some kind of material out and HQ i’ll get to work.

    “‘We hold these truths to be self-evident… That all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights… That among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness… That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men …’. And this paper that from the French Revolution on the whole West has copied, from which each of us has drawn inspiration, still constitutes the backbone of America. Her vital lymph. Know why? Because it transforms the subjects into citizens. Because it turns the plebes into people. Because it invites, no, it orders the plebes turned into citizens to rebel against tyranny and to govern themselves. To express their individualities, to search for their own happiness. (Something that for the poor, for the plebes, means to get rich). The exact contrary, in short, of what the communists used to do with their practice of forbidding people to govern themselves, to express themselves, to get rich. With their practice of installing His Majesty the State on the throne.”

    I’m just not feeling the pattern camos, it’s a personal thing. I am probably going to go with one of the dark, dark greys or a nice matte black. And if you’d seen my painted 20mm World War II Russian tanks (late war T-34’s. some assorted heavies and self propelled guns) you’d know I was no artist :) Hence the lack of an airbrush.

    I -was- tempted to get an M44 and an aftermarket stock, Duracoat them both in hot pink though….

    OoohKay, we’ll just leave that one alone.

    I did an AR shorty in the Parker. Looked great.

    Ah, a fellow modeler? I work in 1/35 scale now, used to do 1/72 exclusively. Am working on a Tarawa dio right now, real big job and not much time what with the Princesses and all. Enjoy the SKS, a rifle you built yourself just seems to shoot better ya know.

    Well it’s a total cheapo-EBR Tapco Bubba special, but so far (assuming it doesn’t shoot worse than it did before), I’ve fixed every problem I had with the original design:

    Original SKS stock too short and not comfy on your bulky (fat-arse) frame? Got a nice Tapco T-6 adjustable that fits perfectly at second to farthest notch.

    Can’t see the original SKS sights worth a damn? Got me a nice Williams Firesight front and a Techsight TS200 fully adjustable rear aperture sight, so problem solved.

    Yugo just too damn heavy for those girly-man PC geek arms? Lopped off some dead-weight and traded heavy oiled wood for nice light polymer.

    I also added some removable mags (Tapco, no prize for guessing) and plan to swap out the grenade launcher for a brake, just for shits and giggles….. But right now, it may just be another Tapco Bubba to the purists, but it’s -my- rifle, altered with my Dremel (and it and I have the scars to prove it!) and my plan….. So bugger those who protest! Sideways!

    And I also an idjit, the Russki tanks are 1/285th GHQ microarmour (I chose the Russians for the mono paint scheme!), it’s Germans (mostly regular infantry, but some Pioneers too) I have in 20mm, with a few vehicles, mostly die-cast tanks due to a lack of enthusiasm for painting camo.

    I’ve also got a ton of 25/8mm stuff, mostly re-purposed Cadians and Catachans (Warhammer 40k for all you non-geeks) that I use as generic sci-fi infantry for Defiance and other self-brew army list systems.

    We (my gaming group and I) are getting ready to do a TEOTWAWKI scenario based on the concept of a limited nuclear exchange causing a collapsing Mexican state to invade the US, along with the help of their Reconquista 5th column with the US defense mostly coming from National Guard units, citizen militia’s and pissed off Texans from the newly (re)declared Lone Star Republic, as the CIC and his buddies are sort of busy fighting the PLA and friends….. All 20mm, very Mad Max meets Red Dawn meets Jericho, with maybe some Hajji’s thrown in. I am thinking of playing the Islamofascist awoken sleeper cells faction, trying to secure some Jihad…. It’s sad to say, I always do well as the warriors of the prophet, may Piss be upon him.

    And by now, I think all the non-gunnies and wargamers are bored to effin’ tears :)
