The Wearing of the Green

FYI - Regular visitors know I occasionally post articles from other pundit pals who scribble something of particular worth; this is one of them. I have known, worked and shared efforts with L. Neil Smith for 30+ years. Remarkably, despite a shared philosophy, correspondence and several phone conversations, we have never met; as long as there is a TSA, we won't. Regardless, I remain an admirer of his mind at work, especially when put to print. The following is a compelling example... BW
For something like 850 years, the British held the Irish against their will. So stubborn was the Irish desire for independence that their conquerors attempted to stamp out Irish culture, banning their language, their music, their native dress, even hanging, drawing, and quartering men who flaunted the Irish color -- green -- and throwing women wearing green to the troops. They even wanted to forbid the shamrock, a species of clover, from being worn. 
In the long run, the British brutalitarian sta…

In a little town down south

Note: I received the following from a close friend who recently moved to a charming Southern village in SC. It's irresistible little downtown area and gorgeous tree-lined streets have been a tourist and retirement magnet for years. Unfortunately, all this quaintness camouflaged some unpleasant issues deep within the social landscape that the Chamber of Commerce would prefer remained there. To be fair, one wonders if this would have happened without the hysterical media hype of the last few months.

I went grocery shopping today. Usually not a very contentious task, rather mundane, in fact. But something happened at this store in a little Southern town that now has me resigned that the world, the country, the town and life in general will never be the same again.

The trip down the aisles started as unexciting as any trip to the store begins. I pulled out a cart, grabbed my list from my purse and began loading the cart. Nothing out of the ordinary except the several remaining empt…

A Brief Clarification

It was never about a virus and it's not about George Floyd. 
This has been a coordinated, choreographed and financed event beginning with the unresolved source of the origin of the virus. Just as it began to fade came the George Floyd event with massive media coverage and obviously controlled reaction/response. This required planning, coordination, money and, most importantly, communication. Pallets of bricks did not get delivered in dozens of city streets by the Brick Fairy. 

All communications are captured by the NSA. Find the 'community organizer(s)' behind this 'planned-demic' and prosecute accordingly. If not, the Deep State has won. And will continue to win until Freedom as we have known it is destroyed.

Can America Be Free Again?

It can if you demand it. Think Moses and Pharaoh: you cannot beg to be set free.

There is a boatload of books, vids, and articles coming out every day offering advice, guidance, even orders on how to live our lives "in these troubled times". As the "Stay Home, Stay Safe " mantra became ubiquitous, it also morphed into meaninglessness, a vacuous, reflexive expression as vapid and nugatory as "How are ya?". Do you really want to know? Imagine a casual acquaintance responding, "Hey! Thanks for asking! I just had a root canal, and it hurt like hell because the oral surgeon – yeah, I had to see an oral surgeon – first gets out this mongo needle and then….". If you are baseline normal, you're looking for the nearest exit.

The point is an old one: words have meaning. And as we slide down the razor blade of life – "in these troubled times" – that has never been more true, especially on the subject of America's Freedom.
