This holiday is a dichotomy for me. While I plan to celebrate the American ideal, I must also mourn it’s loss by erosion and atrophy. The fact is that too many Americans have abandoned their love of liberty. They either lack the courage to defend it, or know not what they’ve lost and feebly attempt to disguise their apathy or ignorance with claims of overwork and family obligations.

“I just don’t have time.” “We can’t change anything anyway.” or “I voted! What else can I do?”

While somewhat understandable due to the ‘Hate America First’ crowd populating our higher education system, this situation is absolutely unacceptable.

Pay attention, please!

What could possibly be more important than the world you leave to the family you claim to be working for?

This country was founded with the demand that we citizens hold the government accountable and as such it’s our solemn duty to be vigilant and educate ourselves; especially to question every carrot some politician offers for a block of votes.

Part of me wishes the deniers would just be truthful and admit to their selfish apathetic attitude but even then I’ve had enough of their disregard for the outright treason going on in the high halls of our government.

We should be lighting the streets of Washington DC with torches and pitchforks, pushing carts with caldrons of tar and bags of feathers for every Progressive we can lay our hands on!

Instead, most of the hapless, uneducated, indoctrinated sheeple will celebrate their faux freedoms with government approved USDA beef, cooked with EPA tested charcoal and FDA stamped BBQ sauce served on a table illuminated with gov’t mandated, mercury filled light bulbs that require a permit for disposal, powered with electricity delivered through “smart” meters that will soon be limiting the amount of power they are allowed to consume and the happy serfs will never give a moment’s thought to any of it.

“Thank you, Government for the food we are about to receive…” They may as well say.

Need a loaf of FDA approved bread and a twelve pack of pasteurized processed beer to help numb the senses to your lack of liberty? Go right ahead! You’re free to find the nearest convenience store run by immigrants who receive a tax break and subsidy but if you plan on driving that car, you’d better strap on a seat belt for your own safety. We wouldn’t want you killing yourself in an accident making you unable to pay back the insurance companies who apparently rule our lives because we’re too stoopid and incapable to do so ourselves. Not to mention, if a nice helpful revenue assessor officer of the law decides you’ve had one beer too many because the county and state need to fund a few ongoing, never-ending money pits downtown/highway/school beautification or government vote buying entitlement projects (Hey! This one’s got a job!). You’ll likely be forced to give some specimen in a twisted, technological violation of the Fifth or Fourth amendments to be used as evidence against you in a modern-day kangaroo court. (Ever hear of a No Refusal Law?)

Ah Freedom: Wonder what that felt like. You know, I think I once actually thought we were free, and slowly but surely I realized the illusion of liberty was the curtain of OZ and just like the tale, we aren’t supposed to peel that curtain back. Unfortunately, unlike Dorothy with her traveling band of truth seekers, the man behind the curtain isn’t a cute, cuddly, benevolent old man who resembles our kindly uncle. Behind the curtain, is the great and devouring leviathan, its hour come round at last, now slouching towards Bethlehem to be born. (Apologies to Yeats.)

Whatever hides beyond the veil you can be assured it has no designs for your safety or security except as a ruse to steal more of your freedoms.

Remember the phrase: “It’s for the children.”? Well guess what, we are “the children”. Get used to it. Your body is no longer your property, let alone your land, your vehicle or your actual children. The state now lays claim to them all in more ways I care to count. It takes a village alright. A village of idiots to swallow the lies we’re continually asked to believe.

Enjoy your Fourth of July, comrades.

The “transformation” is almost complete.


Note: If this seems unreasonable to you, then I emplore you to get off your ass and DO SOMETHING about it. Donate your time and money to conservative candidates, then STAY involved. We will not turn it around in one election any more than it took one election to get us here. It’s past time to be what the founders intended us to be: Educated, Informed and Involved.

    This is their plan all along, make the electorate dependent on the Fed Gov’t and they will be voted in every time.
    Happy Independence Day and keep fighting.

      Roger that, Ma’am. You know I will.
      God bless.

    Someone’s pissed. Be careful not to short-circuit my friend. Most of us do what we can.

    • robot July 4, 2012 at 9:52 pm

      Thanks, Red. Had to rant. I’m tired of beating around the bush. PC is part of the problem. You, on the other hand, are part of the solution.

        Husband saved the 4th for me. Every year we find a way or place to go crack off some fireworks. This year we drove all over looking for a place. I was so sad and depressed, especially because this holiday is so important. Husband helped me drop off some Black Cats clandestine-style. I lit my birthday ‘cake’ of qty 500 Black Cats off in a nice big place where everybody could enjoy them ;-D Dropped off a few hundred more here and there, kinda like Santa Clause with presents to share. “Ho Ho Ho! Happy Independence Day you lazy feckers!”

  • robot July 5, 2012 at 9:25 am

    “Ho Ho Ho! Happy Independence Day you lazy feckers!” Love it! Glad you had some fun.

    • Red July 5, 2012 at 3:03 pm

      It was a close save.

  • Frank Koza July 5, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    Heh, heh… Independence day is simply the day our masters overlook the law to allow us peasants to shoot off fireworks to assuage our feelings of utter hopelessness of ever escaping our bonds of slavery.

    I hope you succeeding in shooting off a few to help you feel better if even for a brief moment.

    It’s over, now get back in line, peon!

    BTW, it’s great to see you getting back to being more active here, my friend!!! We definitely need your voice! :)

    • robot July 5, 2012 at 2:15 pm

      Thanks for the kind words, Frank. Still feeling a bit rusty but hey, that never stopped me before, right? lol

      Now, as you say, I’m back to the grind. A few welfare queens and undocumented democraps are counting on me.

      • Red July 5, 2012 at 3:04 pm

        They can run but they can’t hide.

    • Red July 5, 2012 at 3:03 pm

      Amen Frank!

  • Teresa July 5, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Fantastic post, Bot!!! The rampant apathy is pathetic. The willful ignorance of many pisses me off too. Hope you had a great time celebrating Independence Day. Wishing you abundant blessings all year through.

    • robot July 5, 2012 at 6:01 pm

      Thanks, Teresa. Sometimes a ‘bot just feels the need to throw a good hissy fit and willful ignorance is something that pushes that button. Good to see you, my friend. Hope you had a great Fourth!
