Hello. Warning: EXTREME FOUL LANGUAGE IS COMING. So we’ll be sending the Kids out of the Room soon, okay? Fair Warning.
So, yesterday, as I was about to make a Post, I lost Power, and decided to wait until today. So, as I turn on my Computer this morning, and go to check my Blog Buddies, I find out that TAM has shut down her Blog due to some Asshole!
Now, a little Backstory. You see, I started to read Blogs YEARS AGO that were Prepper Oriented, not Gunnie. So, over at Jim Rawle’s site one day, I decide to follow some Links, and I find “View from the Porch Blog,” put out by Tamara K. I WAS HOOKED! That lead me to other Blogs, and Commenting as “Bubblehead Les” and meeting people like Breda and Jay G. and OldNFO and T-Bolt and “The Miller” and lots and lots of other GREAT members of the Tribe. And I got invited to Blogshoots and the SAF Saturday Night Party at the Pittsburgh NRA Con, where I got to meet Alan Gottlieb and Alan Gura, and I learned a LOT about how the Anti-Freedom Crowd wants YOU and I to be Disarmed so as to push their Agenda.
So the years roll on, and some of the Tribe started to drop their Blogs and go to Facebook and Twitter, etc. Okay, Things Change, I can accept that.
But there was One Constant. Every Time I turned on my Computer to go to the Blogs, I ALWAYS went to “View from the Porch” FIRST. EVERY SINGLE TIME! Didn’t matter what she was Posting, and honestly, I didn’t Comment a Lot on what she had put up. But I went to her First, then I followed the Links from Her Site.
So let’s Fast-Forward to this past NRA Con at Indy. Saturday Night, I get invited to a Party held in Tam’s Neighborhood, and I get to meet Tam and Bobbie. I WAS SCARED SHITLESS! You see, Tam and I have some MINOR Disagreements regarding certain Issues, but I was expecting her to Rip me a New One. So I go up to Introduce myself, and She Smiles, says “So you’re Bubblehead Les!”, and All Was Right in the World.
Then a little later, the Topic came up on why I didn’t have a Blog. I hemmed and hahhed, and made my excuses, until Murphy “No Ballsed” me. Then others joined in. Including TAM. The rest is History.
So today I find out that due to some Jerk, Tam felt Threatened enough to SHUT DOWN HER BLOG! Okay, People need to do what they need to do to feel Safe and Secure. I buy that. I’m hoping that this will be a Temporary Hiatus, and the Problem will be Resolved. Lawfully, with no harm coming to anyone. And I understand that the THREAT may not be Mentally Stable, so I do recommend that the Authorities check this Person out, and do what is Legal to end the Threat. But as far as MY “Emotional Response” goes, now would be a good time to send the Kids out of the Room.
Kids Gone? Good. Here goes: YOU MOTHER-FUCKING DICK! WHO IN THE HELL ARE YOU? YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF THE WORDS “NO!” AND “STOP!?” DO YOU GET OFF MAKING PEOPLE SCARED? YOU HAVE TAKEN AWAY ONE OF THE BEST VOICES FOR THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS AND MAXIMUM POSSIBLE FREEDOM THAT STILL EXISTS IN WHAT’S LEFT OF THE REPUBLIC? AND FOR WHAT? SOME SICK NOTION THAT IS CHURNING IN YOUR DISEASED BRAIN? YOU WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT! YOU WASTE OF SPERM! YOU MISERABLE, ROTTEN, USELESS PIECE OF HUMAN GENETIC MATERIAL! I WOULDN’T PUT IT PAST YOU THAT YOU ARE REALLY AN ANTI-GUN/FREEDOM AGENT PROVOCATEUR, EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT EVEN THEY AREN’T THAT DUMB! DO YOU THINK THAT BY SILENCING HER, THAT YOU HAVE STOPPED US? AND IF YOU ARE ON OUR SIDE, AS TAM SAYS “GET OFF!” I HOPE TO GOD THAT YOU HAVEN’T REPRODUCED! I HOPE YOUR BALLS FALL OFF, BUT FROM WHAT I’VE GATHERED, THEY’VE DONE SO YEARS AGO! YOU SCUM. YOU TURD. YOU USELESS BOTTOM-FEEDER. YOU BRAINLESS, GUTLESS, USELESS BLOT ON THE HUMAN RACE! QUIT BREATHING OUR AIR!
Okay, I’m done. If I’ve Offended anyone who’s NOT that Jerk, My Sincere Apologies. But now its time for Plan B.
Look at the Title of my Blog. Those of us who hold the Constitution of the United States of America as “The Last, Best Hope of Humanity” are in a War. Externally, BARBARIANS are doing their best to destroy Civilization. Dictators are moving with Impunity because of Weak Leadership in our Government. Internally, more people are concerned about “Hollywood Stars” getting their Selfies Published than the way we are having to live in the Republic and the “Nanny State” UNCONSTITUTIONAL Rules and Regs that we are choking on every single day. The REAL Economy SUCKS, and those who do respect the Rule of Law are seeing it being Twisted into a Pretzel, all to support a “Liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Communist” Agenda that HATES THE REPUBLIC!
So what do we do about it? We Talk. We use our First Amendment Right to Freedom of Speech and say “Hold it! This isn’t Right!” We let our Voices be heard through Blogs and other Social Media. We let THEM Sweat and Mutter and get Scared. We Educate through our Words what is Wrong, what is Right and what needs to be Changed.
And we may disagree. But as long as WE don’t be Racist/Sexist/Phobic and any other “Nasty Thing” (Timothy McVeigh-types Stay Away!) you can think of, at least those who wish to destroy Freedom will have to go to bed knowing that their Agenda isn’t being Swallowed by a lot of us. Because THEY know that the RKBA isn’t about Hunting, it’s about FREEDOM. And as we use the First Amendment to defend ourselves, let THEM worry about US using the Second Amendment, if Push comes to Shove.
So, if you got a Blog and it’s sitting there idle, start Blogging again. If you are Blogging, keep it up. If you DON’T have a Blog, at least Comment. Or start one. Who cares if only 20-30 people read it. Or no one. It’s at least out there, and who knows? After all, I don’t know what I’d be doing now if it wasn’t for Tam’s Blog. But I sure wouldn’t have had a Great Time doing it, I guess.
So, until Tam comes back, there’s a Big Hole that needs Filled. And Trust Me, I ain’t the one to Fill It. But if a Lot of us work together, we can “Keep the Light On For Her” until She comes back.
So in that Spirit, my next post will be “The Economy, ARs and You.” Join me then, will you? Bubblehead Les Out.
