Happy Independence Day! Lynyrd Skynrd – ‘God and Guns’

A Happy Independence Day to all. I am headed up to the Bunker for the weekend so taking a break from posting. I can’t think of a better song for the day than Lynyrd Skynyrd God & Guns. Wishing everyone a great weekend celebrating with friends and family.

 

Sunday respite ‘The Night they drove old Dixie down’

The purge of any remnant of our history begins. The media, in a psychotic frenzy this week demonstrated their ability as the propaganda arm of the regime. The burning shall begin. “Gone with the Wind” soon to be banned. A few more as demonstrations of the absurdity of the week. Oh yes, and the “Right” is more dangerous than ISIS. But that is what this really is about. In today’s world the flag represents little about racism but rather represents a culture and way of life and independence that Progressives hate. No Sunday respite really this week. But I will enjoy this song anyway.

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the majority leader, said Tuesday that a statue of Confederate president Jefferson Davis should be removed from the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, where it sits just feet from a statue of Abraham Lincoln, whose election spurred the South’s secession.

Washington National Cathedral’s dean said Thursday that the prominent church needs to remove two stained-glass windows honoring Confederate generals Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee — and depicting Confederate flags, images that he said were installed with “good and noble” intentions but have no place in 2015 as the country faces intense racial tensions and violence.

National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis said Thursday that “stand-alone depictions of Confederate flags have no place in park stores,” a local affiliate reported.

This is a song about a confederate soldier named Virgil Caine and his days in the American Civil War. It is a very emotional and haunting narrative and has always been one of my all-time favorites.

Virgil Caine is the name and I served on the Danville train

‘Til Stoneman’s cavalry came and tore up the tracks again

In the winter of ’65, we were hungry, just barely alive

By May the tenth, Richmond had fell

It’s a time I remember, oh so well

The night they drove old Dixie down

And the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And the people were singing

They went, “La, la, la”

Back with my wife in Tennessee, when one day she called to me

“Virgil, quick, come see, there go the Robert E.Lee”

Now I don’t mind choppin’ wood, and I don’t care if the money’s no good

Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest

But they should never have taken the very best

The night they drove old Dixie down

And the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the people were singing

They went, “La, la, la”

Like my father before me, I will work the land

And like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand

He was just eighteen, proud and brave, but a Yankee laid him in his grave

I swear by the mud below my feet

You can’t raise a Caine back up when he’s in defeat

The night they drove old Dixie down

And the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the people were singing

They went, “Na, na, na”

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And the people were singing

They went, “Na, na, na”

Appeals court slap Obama again on Amnesty. Upholds Texas Injunction

The good news is that the courts are holding tough on Obama when we finally get a hearing. Whether it be FOIA requests, or making the long march to the Supremes. Thank you Texas. First a reminder and then on the latest appeals court ruling

Supreme Court slaps Obama down unanimously once again

Once again the entire Supreme Court knocks down the Obama administration. Funny, this didn’t seem to make the news. This adds up to over 20 unanimous decisions that went against him. His two Supreme picks apparently are not so ready to move to a totalitarian government.

Back to the good news:

A federal appeals court upheld an injunction against President Obama’s new deportation in a ruling Tuesday that marks the second major legal setback for an administration that had insisted its actions were legal.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of Texas, which had sued to stop the amnesty, on all key points, finding that Mr. Obama’s amnesty likely broke the law governing how big policies are to be written.

“The public interest favors maintenance of the injunction,” the judges wrote in the majority opinion.

Sunday respite: ‘Any Bonds today’ Andrew Sisters

This week we honored those who fought and died 70 years ago as the Allied Armies achieved victory in Europe. My parents often talked of the sacrifices Americans made during the war. The ration books, the buying of bonds, the victory gardens. I can’t think of any song I could choose for my Sunday respite that could reflect the change in American culture, and unwillingness to sacrifice for our Country than the Andrew Sisters “Any Bonds Today?” Just think about the words.

Any bonds today?
Bonds of freedom
That’s what I’m selling
Any bonds today?
Scrape up the most you can
Here comes the freedom man
Asking you to buy a share of freedom today

Any stamps today?
We’ll be blessed
If we all invest
In the U.S.A.
Here comes the freedom man
Can’t make tomorrow’s plan
Not unless you buy a share of freedom today

The tall man with the high hat and the whiskers on his chin
Will soon be knocking at your door and you ought to be in
The tall man with the high hat will be coming down your way
Get your savings out when you hear him shout “Any bonds today?”

Any bonds today?
Bonds of freedom
That’s what I’m selling
Any bonds today?
Scrape up the most you can
Here comes the freedom man
Asking you to buy a share of freedom today

Any bonds today?
All you give
Will be spent to live
In the Yankee way
Scrape up the most you can
Here comes the freedom man
Asking you to buy a share of freedom today

Won’t you buy some bonds?
We’ll all be blessed
If we all invest
In the U.S.A.
Here comes the freedom man
Can’t make tomorrow’s plan
Not unless you buy a share of freedom today

Sunday respite: The Pusher Man

The latest gentle giant is AKA the drug pusher AKA Freedie Grey. Keep in mind just what he was. So this one is for him.

Well now if I were the president of this land
You know I’d declare total war on the pusher man.
I’d cut him if he stands, and I’d shoot him if he run,
And I’d kill him with my bible, and my razor and my gun….

Baltimore’s Freddie Gray, drug dealer with 18 arrests

You know I smoked a lot of grass.
Oh Lord! I popped a lot of pills.
But I’ve never touched nothin’
That my spirit couldn’t kill.
You know I’ve seen a lot of people walking ’round
With tombstones in their eyes.
But the pusher don’t care
If you live — or if you die.
God Damn! The pusher.
God Damn! The pusher.
I said God Damn! God damn the pusher man.
You know the dealer, the dealer is a man
With a lump of grass in his hand.
But the pusher is a monster
Not a natural man.
The dealer for a nickel
Goin to sell you lots of sweet dreams.
Ah…but the pusher will ruin your body;
Lord he’ll leave your mind to scream.
God Damn! The pusher.
God Damn! God damn the pusher.
I said God Damn! God damn the pusher man.
Well now if I were the president of this land
You know I’d declare total war on the pusher man.
I’d cut him if he stands, and I’d shoot him if he run,
And I’d kill him with my bible, and my razor and my gun….
GOD DAMN! The pusher
God damn the pusher.
I said God damn! God damn the pusher man!
