Not usually a fan of ”modified” versions of our anthem – but this one is completely full of #win. If you don’t mind, share this one around just a bit…the rest of their songs are unabashedly patriotic. Nice work, gents! More here.
Thank you all for your service and sacrifice.
Some good advice to a disheartened blogging friend from Doug Ross @ Journal: And, about blogging….
It was written to Fausta, but applies to the rest of us with our bottom lips poked out and tears in our eyes from a stinging defeat.
Now, if you didn’t catch the link in Doug’s post make sure to read Tabitha Hale’s post…
Buck up, buttercups! Step away from the laptop for a day or two and then focus on what was accomplished.
- Retained the House – check.
- Net gain on Governors – check.
- Discovered Chris Christie will roll wherever the political winds blow him – wait, that wasn’t an achievement. Noted and checked. It’s worthwhile to know which allies are with you 100%, isn’t it?
- Networked with a brilliant bunch of bloggers and activists.
My blogging has been really sporadic due to the day job which frequently turns into a nights and weekends job, too. I’m still here, just not as prolific…but you already knew that. Now it will likely become even more so.
For me decompression will be some time at the reloading bench, some trips to the range, guitar playing, songwriting and learning my new recording software. We’re moving back home to Virginia, so I have a house to build, prepping to do and more weight to lose.
Blogging will continue in snippet fashion for a bit – for now I’m trying to keep the anger at what’s being done to our country down to a slow burn.
Don’t worry, it’s still #WAR.

Please go vote. Our Republic is foundering and she needs your help. Unlike the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Mitt Romney doesn’t perceive himself as the Messiah…nor will we have to worry about the LSM/MSM defining him thus. Let’s just get him elected and then watch him do what he does best – turn failing enterprises around.
Here’s a novel concept – let’s hold him and his administration accountable to do the things he’s said he’ll do – and to do all the things that need be done. Will some of them be painful? Absolutely.
…and another thing…
…I went yesterday to avoid today’s lines. We made the mistake of going on Saturday in 2008 and the lines were atrocious - we spent around four hours in line waiting to vote. I’ll have to take a trip past some of the early voting polling places to see what today’s lines look like.
If you haven’t already voted, please go vote either today or Tuesday. However, please realize at this late stage in the game a “statement vote” or a “conscience vote” is most assuredly NOT the way to go. A vote cast for anyone other than Mitt Romney is pissin’ in the wind and actually is a vote *for* Barack Obama. If that’s not enough to cause you further nightmares, remember that Joe Biden is still only one step away from the Presidency. *shudder*
It’s time to Change It Back.
While I seriously doubt anyone can bring it back…it’s worth a shot…
