“Talent, on loan from God.”

It’s only been a couple of days, but I already miss Rush Limbaugh.

Of course a lot of people from the left have come out, bashing him. But to be honest, Rush didn’t give a whip about the drive by media and such peoples opinions when he was alive, and he certainly doesn’t now that he’s in Heaven.

And if you can tell the greatness of a man by his enemies, Rush was truly great. We can all aspire to have such enemies as he by the time we expire.

There are millions of us, something like almost 30 million plus, who listened to Rush over the years. And I think we all have stories of how he affected our lives. Stories of how his 3 hour daily radio program brought us hope, brought us comfort, brought us an explanation for things that were beyond our understanding, and did so in an entertaining and easily understood way.

As my dad said yesterday, losing Rush is like losing a family member.

I remember from my earliest years listening to Rush in my dad’s truck while driving around, and later on jobs as I worked Construction through college. And now, as a cubicle monkey, I could read the transcripts of his show on his website during lunch.

In addition to my dad, I think Rush had a lot to do with how I turned out.

Going through college, I was a Criminal Justice Major with a Sociology Minor. The fields tied in nicely together, but where as most of the Criminal Justice professors were moderately conservative, every single one of my Sociology professors were extremely liberal.

Plus college being what college is, I faced a lot of conservative bias and saw the popularity of liberalism. I’ll never forget wearing a shirt that had a picture of a Glock on it that said, “This is my Glock, there are many like it, but this one is mine.” And the girl sitting behind me told me that I shouldn’t wear shirts like that because guns are bad… and we were both in a Criminal Justice class!

So being surrounded by conservative voices, whether it was my dad, or construction co-workers, or Talk Radio, helped offset the pull for liberalism at college. And as Rush used to explain, liberalism is lazy. Liberalism is seeing a problem and instead of figuring out an intellectual solution, you take an emotional stance of, “oh how horrible we must DO something!”

This is what gives the left so much power, because the majority of their voters don’t see the theft of power, the usurpation of freedom and rights, the destruction of Godly traditions and morals… they see a need and they feel emotional about it, and the left taps into that need and weaponizes it for their own goals. Which are, simply put, to consolidate power and crush opposition. (Meanwhile the majority of the right will just whine about unfairness of the left’s tactics without fighting back.)

But conservatism, takes effort. It takes a conscious effort to put aside emotion and focus on results and the morality of how to get them properly with as little as possible interference in people’s lives and freedom’s.

But I digress…

Rush will be missed.

Greatly.

After the death of Walter Williams last Dec, Rush this month, and Thomas Sowell turning 91 this year, the conservative effort is in great need of new young bloods stepping up to take the reins.

I just wish I had 25% of their intellectual power, sadly – I think I’m closer to 15% so I’ll stick to writing books and piddling around on this blog with occasional political and social commentary.

Luckily, Rush will still be with us to some degree. His books are still being published, the EIB network is turning into a museum of Rush, his words, speeches, and radio will still be in print and audio, and the world keeps turning.

I leave you with his wife’s announcement of his passing:

Some of you have done NOTHING with your life and you’re mad about it.

You have a college degree & a smartphone with access to virtually *anything* and you can barely get out of bed in the morning while you spit on people who built a whole world with nothing but a horse, map, & axe.

You’ve made nothing with access to everything. You’ve conquered nothing. Hell you can’t even conquer yourself. So go tear it all down. Scream into the void how unfair it all is. It’s not that you’ve wasted your short time here. Surely not.

Don’t bother with your own legacy your busy shitting on the long dead who aren’t here to care. Go burn down every Starbucks. That’ll show them. Torch the Target. Tear down every monument. Deface every memorial. But what have you built? What do you leave behind?

So take your benzos. Watch your porn. Get Uber to drop off your dinner. Buy an adult coloring book. Have sex with strangers to ease your crippling anxiety. It’s not you. It’s the system really. It isn’t fair. Go cancel someone. Dox someone. They deserve it. You’re the good guy.

Don’t write an epic novel worth building a statue to remember you. Go troll seven year old problematic tweets ever on the hunt for the boogeyman. See now you’ve accomplished something. Cancel everyone. You’re a warrior now. A real hero.

And lastly whatever you do never ever take even a moment to self reflect on your own failures. Never own them. Never take a hint of responsibility. Remember you’re just a helpless victim of circumstances beyond your control. This all means nothing. It’s like you weren’t even here.

‘Nuff Said.

Darker Days are Coming…

Darker days are coming.

Make no mistake.

Whoever wins the 2020 elections will undoubtedly spark a chain of events no one will be prepared for in America. The cultural divide and turmoil is too great not to see bloodshed in some way.

As followers of Christ, we need to “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.” (1 Cor 16:13) As law abiding citizens, we bear arms to ultimately live our lives as lovers and protectors of our communities and families, we may be called upon to fight for.

Now, my first thought is never “let’s shoot them and let God sort out the rest!”

Violence is not the way of the Christian.

Living in love, communicating in truth, standing firm in the faith is what we are called to do. We don’t need to make threats, we don’t need to insinuate violence as an answer. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Eph 6:12).

But in the moment where Satan manifested himself in the free willed actions of gross and distorted men, the most loving thing you could do is “lay down your life” for those around you. You never hope violence comes your way, but in the hour of testing do not fail to be prepared. “Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.” (Ps 82:3)

My wife cracked this joke like 3 days ago.

Further proof that I married out of my league.

Let’s be honest.

This is nothing new.

Francis was just the first one stupid and desperate enough to ‘Go Simple Jack’ and expose the left’s goals of total firearm confiscation so blatantly. (That’s a Tropic Thunder AND a Deadpool reference…. wow… go me).

I’m willing to bet the Democrat oligarchy collectively moaned and gnashed their teeth when he stated something so stupid on a national public stage because his sound bite will be the rallying cry for gun owners for the next twenty years.  

Anyways. I ain’t skeered. Cause Francis hasn’t even taken 3% in the Polls yet, so hows he gonna lead a national movement to take my guns? 🙂

In other news. The left is also using a little girl with Aspergers to yell at everyone else about burning the Earth to a cinder. Which is just ridiculous. But hey, if she’s a little girl, with Aspergers, you can’t make fun of her. You can’t challenge her. You can’t belittle her. You can’t tell her she’s wrong.

Or you’re being a bully.

Well, my son has Autism. And likely my three year old daughter as well – so it doesn’t cut any mustard with me.

Greta doesn’t know squat, because she filed with the UN against 5 countries for not stopping climate change. (Of course America is one of them.) But not China… which is the leading polluter in the world.

I call bullshit. Go find a park to play in and leave the arguing to the adults.

I just received my first FB Achievement medal!

By being tagged for ‘hate speech’…

Generally speaking, I don’t post about politics on FB much anymore. Or on this blog.

Honestly, it’s because I’m tired of the division and tired of Trump’s winning. I’m also tired of arguing with people who are frothing crazy and irrational and driven by hatred for Trump. Look, you can have your own beliefs, that’s fine. But as a human being, you owe it to yourselves to educate yourself, to challenge your beliefs, and correct them as you discover grow, learn, and discover facts and reasoning’s.

And I’m not saying, “Oooo, Republicans are always right and Democrats always wrong!”

Not true. Republicans suck also. As I mentioned in my last post, read the comments sometime in a Fox News article – it’s cringe worthy to read what ‘my’ people have on their minds. And there are plenty of wimpy Republicans who support gun control, abortion, high taxes, etc. Such as John McCain. He was terrible and I wrote about that when he died.

But the reason I posted that comment to FB is because every single Democrat at the Presidential debate with a podium denounced Trump as a racist every chance they got.

Which means all 63,000,000 voters who supported Trump are racist as well by default.

Correct?

Either we are racist and support his racism, or we are tens of millions of ignorant fools who unknowingly elected such an evil man, and you folks are the shining beacons of all that is good and just in the world here to enlighten us and offer trinkets and other free things…

Which is it? We’re stupid? Or racist white supremacists as well?

Either way, you want our votes.

So, I think my statement is pretty accurate.
