We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
In Europe a secularized post-Christian culture is facing a Muslim one. The secularized culture is hedonist and values only its present life, because it does not believe in an afterlife. This is why it will surrender when threatened with death because life is the only thing it has to lose. This is why it will accept submission without fighting for its freedom. Nobody fights for the flag of hedonism, not even the hedonists themselves.
Appeasement, accommodation and outright defeatism overwhelmingly characterize the conduct of western countries in the face of Islamic resurgence. Many of them are so hapless that they are even turning against those who would protect them; several EU states have initiated legal proceedings against American agencies for capturing and removing terrorists from their midst. Last year, for example, a German court issued an arrest warrant for thirteen CIA agents involved in the capture and interrogation of a terrorist suspect that took place in Macedonia. The man, one Khaled al-Masri, is a German national of Lebanese descent. In an almost surreal twist, al-Masri's lawyers in a press conference referred to the agents as ‘suspects.'
I've clanged the bell on this almost enough but I have a big clanger so it can handle the job.
Buy yourself an assault type rifle with at least ten magazines and a minimum of one thousand rounds, because when and if the Dems take over they'll begin outlawing them AND they'll begin a DIALOGUE with the terrorists that want to enslave us.
Count on both of those.
You'll have only you and your cadre of like minded neighbors to actually fight the Islams..yes shooting bullets right in your own neighborhood. You don't have to look past Europe to see whats happening.
Learn skills that will allow you to operate in small bands effectively. Don't just read books, actually learn the skill of shooting, emergency battlefield medicine, explosives, ambush. Fire and maneuver.
The Muslims will come equipped with these skills so don't be late to the party.
Or just sign up at the local mosque fro lesson in how to be a good dhimmi.
For those who think it'll never happen..don't come knock'n on my door without a gun,ammo, and a skill for survival.
Chance are you'll be taken down first anyway.
