A Little Linkage for You

Just in case there are those that have not seen it (I was one until just a short while ago), a ghostly reader ( ;P ) pointed me in the direction of THIS SITE. I thank you very much my friend, a thousand times over. I will be passing it on to the spouse in the morning.

I didn't make it all the way through Basic (hello torn meniscus), but I swore the same oath to defend the Constitution that every other soldier swore. I endured the same training, until my injury, that every other soldier endured. Had I not been female, I would have probably been entered into the sniper training program (as told to me by a Drill that was one for ten years). My skills and training have not been dulled by time, neither has my memory of the oath I swore and the pride I felt while taking that oath. It is loyalty to the Constitution that I pass on to my children, not politicians or government. It is the ideology of our forefathers that I teach my boys, the belief that WE THE PEOPLE are the backbone of this country...even if we don't act like it at times.

I will still defend the Constitution, I will still defend the rights of every American. I took an oath, I will keep it.


P.S. Never taken the soldier's oath or anything similar but want to do so as a regular ol' Patriot...GO HERE.

Good Morning for Georgia. I found the link to your blog from a comment you made at Mayberry's site and have enjoyed reading what you have to say. You are sending out a voice of reason in the middle of screams of chaos.
Sorry you didn't make it through basic. Military service leaves you with a different perspective on life in general. I was Air Force from 1970 to 1992 and have lived in a quite a few "third world" countries where life is cheap and food is something precious and a little rice and fish are the difference between life and death.
I believe, at some point in the near future, that we will be facing the same type of situation. The people who have prepared are going to be around a bit longer than the ones that haven't.
Many people are talking of bugging out. I'm about 40 miles west of downtown Atlanta and the main expressway, I-20, runs about a quarter of a mile from the house. I do know that if there is a mass exodus that the roads will be blocked and tied up long before people get this far out (that's the way it is most business days with heavy traffic so throw in a little panic driving and you have grid lock). The inner cities will turn toxic with gang activity and a "haves"/"have nots" go toe to toe.
Our plan is to bug in. We can defend and we can eat and if we are around long enough we can plant and reap a garden. I fear for the people that head for the woods. There will be other people there looking to take what ever you have. There isn't enough game to feed a lot of people and there are just a lot of nuts out in the woods (not always the edible kind).
Anyway, thanks for putting up your blog and I'll be by now and then to check in on you.
Good luck and good day.

Thanks for stopping by Cliff...I've actually been through your area (many, many, many, many years ago when I was still an innocent teen), the magnolias are what I remember most. Never saw anything quite as beautiful before in my life and have never seen a magnolia that impressed me since!

I agree...it will be survival of the fittest in the utmost form...and fit doesn't always mean physical.
