Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. If you were partying with us over the Thanksgiving weekend, then I know you had a kickass time. We unleashed 3 huge concerts that broke the ‘Fun-O-Meter’ . We had HATE ETERNAL, SUPER TROUP, and DOYLE. It was a festive time indeed at all 3 shows. But moving into December with that festive feeling in my black heart. My attitude quickly turned to despair with the recent Terrorist attack in California. I’m the kind of person who likes to voice my opinion. Whether it’s on the ‘Rock Solid Pressure’ show, or here in the blog, you’re going to know how I feel. A lot of you don’t agree with what I say, and I don’t expect you too. That’s the beauty of our society. It’s always cool to have an idealistic debate on issues. And the last time I checked, our ‘Freedom Of Speech’ hasn’t been canceled. If you’re a regular reader of my rants, then you know I’ve never been a big fan of our Government. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a HUGE supporter of our Country. I’ve just never really liked any of our Presidents in my lifetime. At an early age, I started to see all Politicians as slimey, corrupt bastards. Our ongoing Civil War between the Democrats and the Republicans just seemed foolish to me. The only voice that made sense in the campaigns for President over the years was from the Independents. I also quickly found out that the Independents didn’t have enough money to get elected. That made me dislike our sitting leaders even more. So it’s safe to say I pretty much gave up on politics, but I never gave up on supporting our Country..
Yes it’s true, Donald Trump got me fired up and interested in our new Presidential race. I saw him as a strong leader that would not take any shit. This is the kind of person we needed to lead our Country. All of the Presidents I have seen in my lifetime were total WIMPS. Certainly not the kind of people our great nation was built upon. I guess you would have to be in your 70’s or 80’s (or 90’s) to remember what a strong leader in office was like. So Trump got me fired up, but lately, it seems like he’s going off the rails on the crazy train. I STILL want to believe that this guy is the answer to a lot of our problems, but he’s going about it in the wrong way. I mean, doesn’t he have any campaign advisers yelling at him that you CANNOT be genocidal? He had most of the Country rallying for him, but the recent things he is saying has put me back in my ‘despair’ catagory. NONE of the candidates would be good for America right now. We’re in deep shit.
The more I hear the nonsense coming out of Obama’s mouth, the more concerned I get. It seems like he’s more in favor of the Terrorists than protecting his own Country. Do any of you feel that way? Gun Control? How bout ‘RADICALIZED MUSLIM CONTROL’. I’ve had it up to my ass in all this ‘Gun Control’ bullshit. All that means is that guns will be taken out of many hands that need to protect their families. The criminals, and the TERRORISTS will always get guns no matter what. I talked to a lot of people who are also really concerned and the general consensus is that we’re on our own. The American vigilance will be our only defense in the war within our Country right now. How much worse can things get for our nation? we’re already dealing with Wacko’s that stage mass shootings at our Schools and Movie Theaters. We have crazed Serial Killers on the loose. And NOW, once again, we have radicalized Muslims killing our people in our OWN Country. The man I thought would be the guy to bring America back to the strongest nation in the world, has me thinking this guy is more like HITLER than our nations saving grace..
I’m sure Trump has our nations best interest at heart, but man, he’s going about it in the wrong way. First off, all Muslims are not radicalized. I’d venture to say 90% of American Muslims are great people. For me though, it’s weird to get caught up in any type of religious brainwashing. There’s a God? YES! There’s a Devil? YES! There’s good and evil? YES! So choose your path and be done with it. There’s good Christians, there’s bad Christians. Good Catholics, bad Catholics..And YES, good Muslims and bad Muslims. Put it this way, if I was an American Muslim, a good Muslim, who wanted nothing more than to worship Allah for the rest of my days, then I’d be the first one to contact the Government to check me out. That would be logical. Especially now. And I’m seeing a lot of good Muslims on the news that are doing this and I applaud them. On the other hand, we have to find these small cells of radicalized Muslims that are certainly planning their next attack. Only our vigilance will stop the next one. We cannot count on our President..
I also saw something on TV last night that totally freaked me out. I was watching ‘News Channel 9′, and they ran a commercial from the Sheriff in Broward Country (Maybe Brevard County?) Anyway, the Sheriff comes on and is offering instructions on what to do if your Holiday party is attacked by Terrorists. YES, I”M SERIOUS! I felt like I was watching Saturday Night Live. He stated that if you have a license to carry a firearm, then BRING IT. He also stated to RUN, HIDE, and a bunch of other stuff that had me saying NO WAY..THIS CAN’T BE REAL..But it was. And after that, I knew our Country has changed from bad to worse. We’re going into a Militia Mentality. Hey, I’m fine with holing up on a mountaintop somewhere in the hills of Virginia. If it comes to that I’ll roll with the punches. As long as I can open up a concert venue in those hills, then bring it on. But seriously, is this the path that is destined for the strongest nation in the world? It can change with a strong leader in office and that leader is nowhere in sight..
I’m one of those people that get kinda depressed over the Christmas season. That feeling has been replaced by confusion this year. I never thought I would live long enough to see our great nation go down the tubes, but it’s happening. Is there even an Independent party right now? Is there time for someone to rise up, take control and stop the madness? We still have a lot of time to find the ideal candidate. Our Government totally ate itself and imploded. We all rallied around a pop culture President who sent our Country to hell, and NOW we have to be Vigilant? It’s no wonder Trump’s extreme views hit a nerve with most of Americans. I AGREED with most of the things he was saying, but I CAN’T agree with what I’m hearing lately. The best I can hope for is that mountaintop community in the hills..Shoot anything that moves? Well, ok then
