The Way of the Gun


The way of the gun is as American as mom’s apple pie. I read with interest the article by Bill the Butcher which compares the shootings in Orlando with the tower shootings in Texas circa 1966. It provoked thought in me for three reasons; one, all of you that read Bill’s writing know him to be a man of reason. His is the way of thought, and one may only emerge victorious from such matches as are found in contests of logic if they possess the preeminent superiority of reason. But a very few of us remember darker times in the Simple Ol’ Boy’s past. A past ruled by the way of the gun.


In those days the way of the gun was eschewed by most, but some contests were not to be won if one was not knowledgeable of that particular dark way. In reading Bills piece, I thought to detect an echo from that time. Secondly, and of greater importance to his readers, Bill made it clear that by his lights, Muslim people are prone to either forcing their ideology, or way of life if you will, on others at the point of a gun, or are instead guilty of indifference to the victims of those who do so. Lastly, by a quirk of fate, mybrother and I were both there at the hour of the shooting at the University of Texas, both of us missing a more fateful appointment by bare minutes. I would like to submit a humbler thought on the comparison made by The Butcher by the addition of two other famous Texas shooters.


The drawing of the three: roughly three years prior to Whitman’s rampage on an infamous day in November 1963 Lee Harvey Oswald fired shots from an upper floor window in the Dallas Book Depository killing one man, our president, beloved of many in this nation, and wounding Governor John Connally, feared by many of the same. His state of mind? Cold, calculating, a true shooter’s state of mind. Twenty-five years after the tower shootings a certifiably mental patient drove his car into the Luby’s Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas, and upon exiting his vehicle shot and killed 23 people. The shooter, George Hennard’s state of mind? Chaotic, fragmented, a shooter who only got his kill count by killing unarmed, helpless sheep (apologies to those who count among the lost one who was dear). In each case, it bears pointing out that the victims were unarmed, and helpless due to an unannounced attack. Kills such as these lack honor, and therein do I find the ONLY similarity. In Oswald’s case the shooter was an assassin, trained for his mission, and part of a larger plan, Oswald was doing a job. I know it, and I know Bill knows. In Whitman’s case, he was a combat seasoned veteran, but one with an awful thing growing in his head; it cannot be said that he knew what he was doing, but  Hennard did! I knew his therapist, and believe me, those who knew him best were worried about his fascination withguns, and his erratic behavior


If anyone was responsible for the shooting in Orlando, or Connecticut, or Columbine or, take your pick, it’s the police. Ever since the war on drugs our nation’s police use a template for prevention that resembles the optimism of that person ahead of you in line at the convenience store buying lottery tickets. They’ll continue to explain the logic of it well after you have lost interest. Am I bashing the cops? Well…yeah. I mean just look at the solution most of them have for mass shootings: disarm everybody. Huh? Now, I have walked the way of the gun since before I could vote. I stay hard, and I stay ready. I know that Bills reason is superior to mine, but I also know he keeps a Smith near to hand. I don’t believe the answer is the expulsion of Muslim people, nor the barring of their way to citizenship. I think rather that we should vette them more thoroughly, and watch them more closely. And, I think we should all keep our guns close, just in case.


The not so Ok Corral

The not so Ok Corral is what we have in Oregon. My views on this will astound you. First, some geographic study. First off, it’s the West Coast. If you grabbed the United States by Maine, and tilted it, all the fruits and nuts would roll to the West Coast. Oregon, California, has legal gay marriage, and all the pot you want to smoke. My own son lives in Cali, and he’s now crazy too. We pray for him often.

So we have one Ammon Bundy. I’m not going to even mention the other guy, because he’s an also-ran riding on the Bundy coat tails. When Cliven Bundy circled his wagons it was almost plausible. Actually, it was quite funny watching the Federal Gumshoes run with their tails between their legs, and having to return all the cattle they’d stole, but I digress. The history of the Bundy Ranch, public sentiment, and general hate of the Feds made quite an event.

Let me tell you what happens when you hit the national media. You get addicted. There’s gold in them thar hills, and I don’t care how you slice it, between personal appearances, books, articles, TV, and just plain letting your face hang out, you will put up some coin if you get in with the right bunch of fellows. Cliven made a hit, Ammon wanted to ride the freeway, but are we sure Hank done it this way?

Now let’s look at logistics. How do you change things? You go to Congress, beat the bushes, bang your head on the wall, and by and by, you mount the Capitol steps and wave your gun at the DPS while they smile like they got good sense. You don’t seize a rest stop in some spot in the woods that tree huggers go to and smoke dope! Oh, and make love to their boyfriend, thought I’d just throw that in there.

I saw the lawyer lady going on and on about “Territories” with a “T” and independent states, sovereignty and all that. Listen lady, there’s only one sovereign, independent block of land in the continental United States and that’s TEXAS! All the other states are just a bunch of welfare babies sucking of the Lone Star teat! Got that? Good, now let’s move on.

One thing I’m glad to see is the Feds showed restraint this time. Shucks, ain’t nobody out there but Yogi Bear. “Hope they have a pic-a-nic basket, Boo!” What they’re gonna do is wait for the basket to run out, and barring a mass suicide, when they run out of beer, they’ll come marching out into the arms of a fairly lucrative book deal. You don’t overthrow the government by taking over a rest stop. Wonder if I can get a deal helping them ghost write? Hey! I didn’t take the bathroom, I’m only gonna write about it. Oh, the picture on this article; Yeah, well, I was looking for a “Bundy” and that guy popped up.

Catcher in the Rye

In J. D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye, you should all remember the image of the main character in a field of rye grass, trying to keep children from charging over a cliff. Friends and neighbors, that’s exactly the position I find myself in today. The gross insanity of the liberal left leaves me dumbfounded. With Radical Islam attacking society on all fronts, to ignore it is just crazy. Just before I sat down to write this I had the distinct pleasure of watching ISIS saw off a few heads. That’s not what got me. What got me was the submissiveness of the people being sawed. They calmly walked over and lay on the ground and an ISIS member were picked to do the initial saw, with the official executioner finishing up. This is how far it can go. Boys and girls, they’d have to shoot me in the butt! With my hands unbound I would get one of those AK’s and welcome at least some of those Islamabastards to the infernal regions.
Islam is the problem! Make no mistake about it. If moderate Muslims are so peaceful then they need to stand up! Thomas More had a legal theory. He said if he lunged at someone with a knife, and someone did nothing to stop him, then it can only be reasoned that the bystander agreed with the action. Same here. If ISIS blows up a building, and “Moderate” Muslims just stand by, then they are involved. There are two kinds of Muslims. A radical Muslim wants to kill you. A Moderate Muslim wants a radical Muslim to kill hyou..
Islam has positioned itself beyond all civilization. And it’s not a totally new idea. I watched a film last night about the Hitler Youth. It showed about how from birth, young Germans were indoctrinated with Nazi philosophy. The only difference between what the Nazis did, and what ISIS is doing was the language! And all this nonsense about how it’s hard to track them down is just that, nonsense. France is about to reintroduce beheading for ISIS. Good move! The problem is idiots. With heads being lobbed off worldwide there are still fools talking about “widows and orphans.” They will be talking this when their granddaughters are sold as sex slaves.
Yet again I address the Militia. Only about ten percent will stand up and fight. The rest will hide under their desks and hope the terrorists find Jesus before they get to them. You have to kill these people. You have to rid the round of their shadow, the world of their DNA, and burn their bodies on a pile of Qu’rans. You will not reason with this. A sixteen year old girl attacked with a knife in Israel and a man had to run over her with a car, and still shoot her in the head, as she crawled trying to finish her Jihad. Even the Nazis weren’t that crazy, and they were two bubble short of plumb, I’ll assure you. And it’s not America’s fault. We’ve been around for only about three hundred years. Islam has had a fourteen hundred year run. And they’re still running.
When this is all over, with any luck, we will have a world without Islam. There will still be crazy people, poor, and disillusioned, but this flavor will be in the scrap heap of history. Perhaps in one hundred years there will be someone explaining how it never happened, because it was just so darn crazy. Maybe they’ll all convert to Christianity. Have I got a bridge for you, friends.

Stupid is the New Black

Do you remember, back in the day, when George Bush jumped on Iraq? He spent days pulling together a coalition of allies and then gave Saddam forty-eight hours to get out of town, and if that’s not cowboy style then I’m not a white boy from Austin! He got agreements from all of our allies, arranged sea ports, landing strips, and support systems to mount a coordinated attack. Obama has a completely different view of our situation. Not only is he turning a blind eye to a massive Syrian invasion, he actually turned down France’s invitation to join in their attack on ISIS. Putin compared negotiations with him to playing chess with a pigeon, where the pigeon knocks over all the pieces, poops on the board, and then struts around like it won the match. President Obama as effectively changed our national symbol from a Bald Eagle to a Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker!
ISIS is in full swing. It’s positively amazing how this administration steps back, watches a well-orchestrated attack that kills over one hundred people, and suggests that it might be terror connected. I’m a Simple Ol’ Boy from Austin, not a Stupid Ol’ boy from Austin! Everybody is wondering if perhaps the President is a closet Muslim. Well, if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck, and Obama’s been quacking for years. I see so many lame brained things spewing out of the White House that I don’t even bother to read them anymore. It’s almost like he gets up every morning and runs through the constitution to see what he can tear up today.
We are at war, people! I want to point out something. ISIS doesn’t attack with divisions. It hits with a few people and disrupts everything. If we had employed their tactics Texas would have won the battle of the Alamo. Nineteen guys brought the country to a halt. Something around that number numbed France. Belgium is shut down right now because ISIS burped. See my point. This would be like Texas closing for business because Bonnie and Clyde robbed a gas station, and it all comes back to one thing. The fool on the hill! The world looks at this situation and wonders what is wrong with us? As bad as they hate us, it was always understood that in a pinch, we will come out fighting.
Political correctness will be the death of us. Stupid is the new black. Congress showed some fortitude when it passed that anti-immigration legislation, flying in the face of Obama’s veto threat, but we need more. Do you realize if just the Senators from the states refusing Syrian refugees were to vote for impeachment Obama would be gone? The world is watching. If Russia and France clean up this mess, and we hang back the die is cast. America is no longer a world power. And use your common sense. Look at the refugees. When the boats came in from Cuba there were women and children, old men, and some younger men. An even sprinkling of a society. Obama said the Syrians were three year olds and widows. I saw the news clips. They were even marching in formation.
I issued a plea four days ago for the Texas militia to organize and go to ground. I repeat that plan. Obama will sit back and watch the hordes of enemy soldiers hit the beach at Galveston, while he ponders his golf game. We have to do this ourselves. We have to pick up the torch. I will admit that not all the refugees are ISIS, but remember. . . nineteen guys! That’s all it takes. One guy to put anthrax in the water supply, One in the White House to bring down a nation. That’s all it takes.

See You In The Trenches

Governor Abbott gave a nice little tip of the hat to Texans yesterday, I even had to wipe a tear from my eye, when he declared no Syrian refugees would be allowed in Texas. For all of you who are still buying into this, let me tell you, this is self-abuse, and if you keep doing it long enough you’ll go blind. Under the Refugee Act of 1980 the President has the explicit authorization to accept foreign refugees into the United States. We find ourselves right back at square one with the state trying to govern itself except with Uncle Simon doesn’t “say.” Also how do you track Mohammed, who lands in New York, contacts a temp agency, gets a job in Austin, and starts work at a Quickie Mart on Monday?
If you look at any Interstate Hiway, on any given day, you are going to see semi-trucks running all over the place. Some are labeled, going to Walmart, HEB, or delivering furniture, but there are some that are not so clear, and the never stop at the Flying J truck stop. Wanna know why? Because they’re transporting soldiers for ISIS all over the land of the free, home of the duped, that’s why! Got a little truck stop over in Temple, Texas. Always seems empty, once in a blue, blue moon you’ll see a truck there, but not often. Kinda dingy little place. The kind of place where you wouldn’t want to eat one of their burritos anyway. Well, that’s where Mohammed and the boys drop by for a little chicken fried goat, while on their way to Houston to practice the Jihad that is surely coming to a neighborhood near YOU!
The aspect of the transport of up to 20,000 Islamabastards to Texas within eight hours is a very real possibility. For the most part, they’re already here. The business model that supports them is exempt from our banking laws, and huge, complex systems help grease immigration so they aren’t held up in line while picking up their suicide belts. They just sit in place, cleaning their AK-47s, eating goat, and waiting for the local Imam to give them their marching orders. Obama tells us ISIS is “contained.” Yeah, in condos all over the country. I wouldn’t follow that man into a whorehouse!
What stands between these guys and Suzie Sweetcheeks shopping at the Mall? Why, the Federal Government, right? Wrong! That’s who’s gassing up the trucks, fool! Oh, the Department of Homeland Security isn’t cleaning their windshield, but they make it so easy for the new guests to move around that they should start a tourist company. No, it’s the Militias that stand guard. You know, those guys all dressed up in Camo, ordering coffee with a rifle slung over their shoulder while the Mothers Against Everything But Unprotected Sex With A Donkey calls the cops.
Texas is littered with Militia. They practice, meet, talk on Facebook, hold rallies, and are serious about Texas, and the security of the state. Only problem is the Feds do everything in their power to thwart these groups every way they can. KC Massey was down in the Valley with so many Mexicans rushing by you’d have thought he was at the Alamo and got arrested for having a gun, even though, under Texas law he’d complied, was in good graces, and was protecting the border at his own expense at Camp Lone Star. Here come the Feds, arrested him, and the Mexicans raised a mighty shout. Well, heads up, Paco! We all have a new enemy, and remember, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Syrians sawing your heads off will make you miss ol’ KC!
There are several problems with the Militias. First of all, even though they are organized within their own units, they are not connected with other units in any kind of workable fashion. A militia in Houston knows little about one up in Salado. There is no supreme commander. Everyone is marching to the beat of a different drummer. This is pretty much what lost the Civil War, folks. Robert E. Lee was the General, but a lot of his orders were, shall we say, “reviewed,” before implementation. To the point that during Gettysburg, it became entirely possible to do an end run, and actually roll Lincoln out of bed, but nobody could quite agree because they were too busy getting slaughtered following Pickett up some hill with General Longstreet screaming, “STOP, STOP, STOP,” the whole time. The Texas Militia has to become The Texas Militia. When the Jihadists attack, and they surely will, you can bet they will be organized. Look at Paris. We have to have a chain of command that can mount a defense when all hell breaks loose. All the various militias need to send a delegation to a meeting and set this up. One guy has to be the “buck stopper.”
Next, we need to become a tad more low key. ISIS can Google us! They use snippers. They already know where all of our units are, how many, how trained, and where we buy that coffee each morning. We don’t know squat about them except they are usually brown, and don’t eat no ham. That’s IT! So this exposes a twofold issue. We need to “go to ground,” and we, at the same time, need to infiltrate them! We don’t need to be sitting outside one of their training camps, bitching, we need to have a guy in there. When Haji trots over to the football game with his suicide belt we need to beat him to the venue, and take care of business.
Then there is training. The Militias are good at training, but psychological training is important too. These are real killers. They want to burn down everything we have. They have this image of stealth and fanaticism designed to strike fear into the hearts of the “Infidels.” They are not supermen. They are the enemy. They are all the enemy. Now, I know there are those who cringe at taking a wide brush and painting all Muslims red, but during WWII, Americans of German decent did not parade in the street giving Nazi salutes. Remember those famous FEMA camps? You remember, don’t you? Those places that the government was gonna put us with little tattoos on our right hand. Well, put moderate Muslims there until we sort this mess out. We have to get the mindset that this is not going away, and our government is clueless. America is lost, but we can still save Texas, and hopefully, when it’s all done, we can help our American friends and neighbors rebuild.
It is coming, people. ISIS is telling us it’s coming. They’re even telling us when, and where. We need to pull our heads out of Mr. Butt, wash our hair, and lock and load. When it goes down, you will see a major shift in loyalties. You may see National Guard team up with the Militia. You may see the Cartels fighting right along beside you, because Arabs are not AMERICANS in any shape, form, or fashion. The Canadians, Americans and Latinos have a history. We agree on very little and we fight like wet cats, but by God we can’t just stand there and let some camel jockey come and take it all away. We will win. We .will lose some good people, but we will forge a new nation that exemplifies the virtues expounded by the founding fathers of the Dis-United States, and when it’s all over, Suzie Sweetcheeks can walk to the Mall, and get her nails done. God Bless you all. See you in the trenches.

The Right of the PEOPLE

The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. There are rights, and there are regulations of those rights for the protection and common good. You have the “right” to travel, and technically have the “right” to stroll across an eight lane freeway during rush hour, however there are regulations governing that “right”‘ for your protection, and that of the motorists in the freeway. All the rights in the Bill of Rights are fundamental, and easily understood, but are continually measured against a changing society with different understandings and needs. The world view of 1776 is vastly different from 2015, yet the fundamental intent of the Bill of Rights remain the same. Do you think that men, intelligent enough to craft the Constitution, would not see that events, innovation, and society itself, would not change the understanding of the words, yet knew that the intent, the spirit, was always there?

The understanding of what a militia is has changed from what the founding fathers knew it to be to what the modern perception is. At the time of the first congress militias were everywhere. George Washington signed a law mandating that all (white) MEN between the ages of sixteen and sixty purchase their own gun, and stand at the ready to serve in the militia at any given time. This was the reasoning behind the initial phrase of the Second Amendment referencing militias. There are arguments trying to qualify the word “people” with the term “militia,” somehow implying that the people aren’t the people at all, but a term incorporated into militia, nullifying the very individuality of persons into an all-inclusive term. This argument is challenged by the use of the word, “people” all through the Bill of Rights where militia is nowhere to be found. The underlying truth of the constitution was all PEOPLE had a right to live, be free, and pursue their dreams, whatever that dream may be. The government had no right to meddle in the personal affairs of the people so long as those affairs didn’t endanger the public at large. Yeah, I know what I just implied, deal with it! All “people” could not be restricted in the bearing of arms, indeed were expected to bear such arms because the wisdom of the day was in the event of calamity these “people” would form a “well regulated” militia, and march off in defense of the state. Since women, blacks, and children didn’t count as voting “people” this in effect addressed only the “people” who counted. The reason the very word “militia” was included in the Second Amendment was simple. Everybody knew you needed a gun for hunting and personal self-defense. You needed to BRING that gun when called to duty to defend the country. You couldn’t put harsh restrictions on gun ownership because militia needed guns and the government had no intention of buying them. It was understood that the PEOPLE would bear that expense. Otherwise they would no longer be a militia, but a Masonic Lodge! The fundamental question of who OWNED the guns was understood.

The world evolved and the reliability upon militia and the concept of the people’s army died in the ashes of the White House in 1812. It became apparent that in the event of a full scale war a bit more was needed than some farmers armed with grandpa’s shotgun to repel a mercenary force sporting whatever a well-funded government could provide, but with the expansion of the governmental role of PROVIDING such weapons the basic question of private ownership of weapons was never brought to the table, and while militias still existed, the burden fell upon standing armies with guns that individuals could ill afford. The type of weaponry was never an issue. There is a line of reasoning that states that the founding fathers were restricted to muskets, and had no earthly idea about the types of weapons we have today. This line of reasoning failed the very moment Flint was replaced with percussion caps. Then came the Winchester. That “Damn Yankee rifle you could load on Sunday and fire all week.” The first “assault” rifle! With the role of the militia being diminished the right of the people took precedence and the defense of the state became the defense of person. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. This is an important concept that would eventually bring the understanding of militia full circle. Militia meaning a group of PEOPLE for common defense in whatever discernment this may entail. Even though a man was not expected to automatically serve in a militia he most certainly had the right to preserve his own life independent to that of the state, and he most certainly was entitled to be with likeminded fellows. .

There are theories and then there is common sense. In theory the citizenry should bear arms to resist a tyrannical government. The overreach of a Federalist government weighed heavily on the minds of the delegates to that Congress. Common sense tells us that AR-15’s aren’t worth a flip against a Drone. The best defense against a tyrannical government is a well-informed Congress. Three equally strong branches of government, each watching the other to keep the ship of state on an even keel. Still, we do have the right of self-preservation, and in that element society, and militia has changed. Enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC! Remember that phrase there will be a quiz later.

Liberal thought tells us that while the Second Amendment addressed muskets that the innovation of newer, more deadly weapons has nullified all this and is out of the scope of the amendment and that it was never intended to address this issue. This is a misunderstanding. As I have said, previous, guns have changed, but so has society, and the underlying need for guns. I have spent some time looking through the Internet, and even in the so-called “Wild Wild West” I can find no occurrences of a cowboy charging into a saloon and shooting indiscriminately at the patrons drinking and playing cards. This is now a common event in modern America. The perpetrators almost always shoot between ten and twenty people they never met, are on drugs that didn’t exist fifty years ago, and usually save the state a lot of money by making themselves the last victim. This is a modern phenomenon. Al Capone didn’t do this. Billy the Kid didn’t do this. This was unheard of. I know a man who survived the mass shooting at Luby’s. He told me when the killer shot the first man he shouted, “Was it worth it?” My friend was an old time Texan, and frankly thought that was one wife the man being shot should have left alone. The man who killed Wild Bill Hickok shot no one else that day, nor did he intend to. This is a modern phenomenon.

Accelerated levels of violence are seen all over the world, not just in America. The English make a lot of hay railing about guns in America while they cower under their beds hoping the “Bobby” gets there before the killer gets IN! The public consciousness is very adaptive. When confronted by a new threat you will see that a new concept, or fix always comes about. Emperor bans swords, monks invent Kung Fu. Hitler invades France, the Resistance is born. Active shooters become the norm, the public starts carrying guns with or without permission. While the understanding of the verbiage of the Second has been debated the spirit has remained the same. The right of citizens to defend their very lives is a natural right, and instinct. What seemed to tie into militia quickly adapts to the preservation of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Even a good dog has a right to bite.

There are indisputable facts. One such fact is you will not stop gun violence by disarming the victims. That’s like curbing rape by blaming pretty girls. Gun laws governing the ownership of weapons fail. The Charleston shooter had a felony record AND a gun. Gee! I never saw THAT coming. That is the reason for another natural law; Force must be met with equal force. If active shooters continue to prowl the land the public must at least have the free choice of defense of itself. This fact in and of itself will begin to turn the tide of the mass shootings. Gun free zones are like a screen door in a submarine. Even the most deranged person must be made to take into account the possibility that his little rampage may end up with a body count of one, him! The thug stalking a lady going to her car after work must understand that her hand may be in her purse for a reason. Lawless men commit atrocities unheard of except for war on a daily basis. This is the new focus of the Second Amendment, not the overthrow of the government, but the preservation of society, and that preservation has caused the definition of “militia” to evolve. .

Regulations of guns have been on the books almost before the ink dried on the constitution, and no responsible gun owner should object. Background checks, education, and stiff penalties for those who chose to endanger society should not be cause for concern, but the legal possession of guns should never be in question. Licensing should be done away with. To license is infringement. To be free to purchase a gun, but beg permission to carry it is an oxymoron. There are two very important words in the amendment that stand out. “Keep” and “bear!” You have the right to purchase a gun, but what good is a gun if you can’t have it with you? Guns don’t kill people, DOCTORS do! Practically every active shooter was hyped up on some pill that John Lennon would have given his eye teeth to have. Doctors should be held responsible for dispensing drugs that not only do not help, but hurt, and endanger society by doing so. Cowboys routinely checked their guns with the sheriff on the way to the saloon to get drunk, Just saying.

There are a lot of people in this country. Will some slip through the cracks? You betcha! Will there still be deaths from drunk drivers, crashed airplanes and tainted green beans? You’ll see them all the time. Life comes with risks, but one of those risks should not hanging on hold with the police while some guy kills everything insight because he can’t get a date.

Not everyone will want a gun, but the sons of anarchy need to understand that we are an armed “society” and they’ll never know when, or where, unless, of course there is one of those little signs with a picture of a gun with a ban circle over it. Don’t eat there! Eat somewhere else. A Biker Bar is safer than that. Well, everywhere but Waco. Note to self: Never invite a bunch of cops to a beer party. The concept of militia has changed, but then again, has remained the same. The militia of old fought governments, the modern militia fights enemies more “domestic,” and I guess, when you look at it like that, we are all part of that new militia. The right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall NOT be infringed.
Simple Ol’ Boy From Austin

There’s a Mad Man Down in Waco

“There’s a Madman down in Waco!” So were the words to one of David Koresh’s songs. I’m going to examine here who the mad men really were. We will examine the human mind, the events in Waco in 1993, and the facts! I’ve found that it becomes easy to ascertain facts by going backwards. You look at what you know happened, and work back from there. Where you surmise a theory, and then make it try to fit, the shoe invariably will not fit. Better to look at the end, and then try to find out how we got there. The end; the federal government burned alive eighty some odd men, women, and children in Waco on April 19, 1993. What led us to that point? How did the government, by the people, of the people, and for the people end up burning up the people?
You’ve been told that David Koresh was the fanatic leader of a cult called the Branch Davidians, camped out just off Highway 6 in Waco, Texas. You’ve been told that he was a pedophile, a terrorist, a danger to society. You’ve been told the ATF just strolled up to the door of Mount Carmel one Sunday morning to serve a warrant for some infraction involving paying a fee for certain weapons within the compound. For some reason the people inside the compound decided to declare war and take on the United States while their leader babbled insane ramblings about seven seals. You’ve been told American Idol is an honest show where the best of the best rises to the top. All of these suppositions are a lie!
First, let’s talk about religion. We all struggle with the meaning of life, why we are here, what are we doing, and where are we going when we leave here? Some people look to faith to explain this. Simple faith is a wonderful thing. Did you know that in order to properly hit a golf ball you have to imagine hitting through that ball? You have to have faith that the ball is going to fly properly and land in the middle of the green, and brothers and sisters, if you have that faith, why God will just miracle that little puppy into a par four quicker than spit! I’ve seen it done. Can I have an amen? It’s when you try to justify faith with scripture that things get tricky. The deeper one digs into scriptures the more obtuse it becomes. People get ideas of what they think the end product should be, and what started out as Jesus is coming soon ends with seven trumpets, seven seals, seven vials, seven headed horses, and a partridge in a pear tree. There’s even a pretty girl running off across the desert getting chased by a rattlesnake, and all of this fits into some grand scheme of “Jesus is coming soon,” but if any part of it doesn’t fit the walls come a tumbling down. Then comes along someone who connects all them crazy dots just a little bit better and starts a “religion.” Now, so long as Jesus is coming “soon,” and not “now,” you got no problem. Imminence is the problem. So long as the second coming is an abstract theological idea that’s all well and good, but when you become convinced that the next knock on the door is the Almighty Himself if takes on a whole new perspective. Every thought, every Bible read, every conversation adds to, and supports the anticipated event, but like I said, so long as said event is “out there,” and not “in here,” what does it hurt? Build a better house, cook a better pot of beans, BE your brother’s keeper, for you never know at what hour the Master will return.
When you have a group of people waiting for that, so long as it never comes you sell a lot of Tums to them and chuckle dryly. But, what happens when you have a knock at the door, and it’s not Jesus, but an out of control government with a whole new perspective on who the Master is? This Master won’t tolerate back talk from anyone, especially those kooks out there on Highway 6 who don’t want anything to do with them as they wait for that seventh seal to be opened ushering in the new Jerusalem, according to David Koresh 1:1! Praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition! And, we have the perfect storm of, please excuse the pun, “Biblical” proportions.
You know, the Bill of Rights is a funny thing. Fairly simple, direct, written to solidify the rights given by God to people from time immemorial, and codified by God Fearing men who had just taken on the most powerful empire in the world. Let’s start working back from there. The right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed. Ok, the Branch Davidians were people, right. Now, it’s hard to tell after Janet Reno and Bill (send a pizza to 1600) Clinton finished cremating them, but in all appearances they were people. Consider this: If the second amendment meant what it said, could it be possible that every “gun control” law since then is illegal? You Think? Now, Google how many times the Branch Davidians attacked Waco since 1934. It is said that they failed to pay a $200 tax for a fully automatic weapon. Well, again, not constitutional, but what would the ATF do to a gun shop who didn’t pay that fee? Uh, maybe send an agent to take the license (still a crock) and MAYBE arrest the owner? So why the cattle cars at Mount Carmel that day? THERE’S your mad men down in Waco, right there!
You think David Koresh was crazy? Give a cop a set of circumstances, a study, a few bugs on a phone, a snitch, and watch out! You think the Davidian belief in the second coming was out there? Try a theory that a bunch of zoned out religious nuts making cornbread and beans are about to over throw the government, AND, they DID owe $200 for God’s sake! “Oh, Wilbur, they was little girls involved and he was a raping on them!” Uh, were those the same little girls the ATF opened fire on in the initial assault? In the next fifty days they fixed that, now didn’t they? You can get all them there raped little girls very comfortably in an ash tray! Swat them bees! I’ve spent the better part of a week studying video, and reading reports and I SAW the ATF shooting during that initial assault. I SAW them firing indiscriminately into the building with PISTOLS! Boys and girls, now I don’t want to go all Texan on you here, but them Yankee Nancy boys weren’t THAT good of a shot. There were CHILDREN in there!
The REAL problem! The Branch Davidians did not submit, nor conform. And one more thing, they really believed. It doesn’t matter if their belief was sound, they believed. Now I’m going to tell you why they died. Be prepared, you will be shocked. You will disagree, you will hate, then you will think, and cry. They died because they all believed they had to die to announce the end of the world. David Koresh suddenly realized that he, and his people would never come out, that they were to be an example to demonstrate a maniacal, out of control empire that would kill children if need be to achieve their means. Mount Carmel was the Davidian’s Garden of Gethsemane, and their beliefs would not allow them to refuse the cup. Good or bad, that’s what they held to. David and all his people knew that the United States had become corrupt and knew that if they stood up that seventh seal would be opened and you would see the “beast” for what it really was because those FBI, Cops, ATF, and all the rest would KILL those children before they would relinquish one iota of power back to the people! They made the free choice to drink the cup of poison. They KNEW that they had done no wrong. What if there had been no raid? What if David had just been arrested at Walmart? Why the attack? I’ll tell you why. Maybe that “Beast” David saw was real. Maybe that beast was intolerant of everything not conforming with its abomination. It would have been more convenient to just cut Jesus’ head off the night before as King Herod had done to John the Baptist, but a crucifixion would send a clear message to anyone out there who was of the same mind as the itinerant Rabbi from Nazareth.
There were mad men in Waco that day. They made sure the ashes of Mount Carmel would never be sifted. They made sure the truth would never be known, but there is one truth. For all the rhetoric, all the talk, all the spin, could it be that David Koresh was more afraid of his God, than he was the ATF? And those mad men. . . they’re still among us, and we still have to finish the job. Perhaps the seventh seal David warned us about has been opened, and with all we are seeing now, Ruby Ridge, Mount Carmel, ISIS, Ebola, and all the rest, is the result of that seal. The lies are ever present. Wanna see one? Consider this; If the government is of the people, by the people, and for the people, why did it become status quo that only the government has the right to have to bear ceertain arms that the people can never have? At that point the government ceases to be the servant, and becomes the master. You only need superior weapons when confronting an enemy, or a slave! Where is your freedom of religion when the government can decide who can marry whom. Where’s your separation of church and state now? How private is your property when long after you own it you must still pay the King’s ransom to keep it? And your freedom of speech? Tell that to the kid thrown out of school because he said he didn’t like the president. All these questions smolder in the ashes of Mount Carmel.
Think about this; What if that “beast” raises its head again, and this time the people also raise their heads, and twenty or thirty truckloads of militia come over the hill to confront the AFT, FBI, CPS, and all the other S’s. What then? Oh, you say that won’t work, the government will just bring more and more, until it enforces the “law?” Well, friend, if you accept that, then we are truly lost! Here’s YOUR cup of poison.

Simple Ol’ Boy From Austin

Stand Up

Let’s guys be frank. You ladies can be Francine. We Texans look like a bunch of tin foil whackos to most of the country. No, we really do. I think a little perspective is required here. Now I’m going to say some things that some of you won’t agree with, but let me ask you a question. Do you really want a free and independent Texas, or are we just gonna just have one big beer party, and sit behind our keyboards and bitch? That having been asked, I’m probably the biggest keyboard bitcher of all, so that’s really the pot calling the kettle black. Oh, I’ve got excuses, grand kids, my legs, money, weather, gasoline, I’ve got it all, but to be honest I’d have to stand on my mother’ shoulders to kiss someone like Micha Cambo’s ass, I’ll be honest, so don’t take my words personally. We’ve all fallen short of the glory.

There is a growing percentage of Texans who would rather NOT have that American flag flying above the Capitol. Not because we don’t have reverence for what it stands, oh, my bad, STOOD for, but because we’d just like to get up in the morning with freedom of speech, ALL our wages in our pockets, our self defense in tact, and our daughters and grand daughters NOT being raped by some CPS caseworker. Wouldn’t it be loverly? And our opposition is profound. Just last night I put up a picture on Facebook. My group of rowdy friends had a field day with it. It showed CJ Grisham, standing in the Capitol Rotunda, grinning like a fox in a hen house, and behind and to his left was the most sour-faced school ma’arm I’ve ever seen in my life! Hey, I crappith thee not, this was one pissed off, ugly bitch, and I’m being conservative here. She was a member of a group called “Mothers For Gun Sense In America.” Do you remember Miss Hathaway on the Beverly Hillbillies? Well, she looked like that, but Nancy Culp was an actress. She was PAID to look like that! This woman was all upset because she didn’t get to usurp the constitution of the United States. Her organization puts up endless stories on the Internet about some nine year old shooting some five year old with daddy’s gun that was left out on the kitchen table, and their answer to the problem is to leave us all defenseless before every criminal who ever smoked a meth pipe. Never mind the kitchen knives, rat poison, medications, and keys left in the car that happens ever year with tragic results, GUNS are the problem. Now, being nieve is forgivable for a woman, but nieve AND ugly I cannot abide.

All that having been said, this idiot has one thing on most of us. She showed UP! She, and a contingent of like minded old bats lined up, and gave a long, pre-written monolog to the senators, with a blank left to insert their name, in the hope of stopping the Open Carry legislation that was wearing out horses approaching the floor, and if not for the Herculean efforts of CJ, and others like him we would have lost the right to carry a POCKET KNIFE. I’d have to stand on my mother’s shoulders to kiss HIS ass, too, by the way.

What CJ has done is invaded the sacred domain of the State House. He threw open the windows and let fresh air blow in, and the mindless, liberal droning was overcome by the rushing winds of liberty. Liberals don’t like that. They want men marrying men, women marrying women, dogs marrying cats, and a dead baby in every dumpster. They want Mikey Cyrus twerking with some girly-man right in front of your little girl, but will expel her from school if she says out loud that she doesn’t like President Obama. They want to provide that same little girl with a free abortion without your knowledge, and then talking her into a same sex relationship, and forget about God . . . Allah is the one true god, and Obama, I mean Mohammed is his profit, er, prophet! THIS is what we’re up against! Well, I don’t buy into this crap. MY grandchildren were in a flag drawing contest, came home to eat AMERICAN hot dogs, and watch “American Sniper,” last Friday, and cheered every single time a Muslim bit the sand!

The liberals only defense is to make us look like a bunch of tin foil wearing right wing nuts. By attacking everything real Americans hold sacred. they construct a norm. Flag waving, Bible believing Americans are ridiculed, while turban wearing pedophiles are held up as pillars of society, Hitler once said that if you are going to tell a lie, tell a big one, and if you repeat it enough it will become “truth!” You want to see those “truths” in action? Well dig this! The constitution is not valid when held up against Sharia Law, and must be supplanted in those cases involving Muslims. Criminals invading our country are really undocumented immigrants, and must be afforded the same rights as citizens. Homosexual relationships are healthy, and churches must bless them no matter what their basic tenants of faith are, and executive orders pre-empt Congress in all matters if the Congress, i.e. the PEOPLE should disagree with the philosophy of the White House, and you know I’m not making this up!

When people start talking about outlandish theories of Reptilians invading the population, supposed military training exercises setting us up for martial law, and the President’s wife being a man our credibility goes right down the drain. Then the snipers in Waco open fire and the grim light of reality shines to the glee of the Liberals who are the nemesis of everything holy, everything decent, everything AMERICAN! Well, we won THIS battle, but there are many more to come. The police do not need to be disarmed, they need to be equalized. We can no longer afford a class that is hands above the citizens simply because they are armed and shout louder than the rest of us. Surprisingly this will not affect good cops. An armed citizenry doesn’t bother an honest man at all, it worries bullies!

BE active. BE there when “Miss Hathaway shows up. BE there when some CPS worker wrenches a screaming baby from a mothers arms. BE Texas! Don’t be afraid. If you don’t believe in secession then stand up for that American flag, but by GOD stand UP for it! My son, Master Chief Wilbur William Witt III has stood up for that flag EIGHT times. Don’t be politically correct. Correctness is what WE say it is, not some homosexual comedian out in LA. God is who WE say He is, not some camel jockey who likes to kiss little boys, and America is what WE say it is, not some guy who won his last election simply because his skin was darker than his opponent’s! Always remember, there are more of US than there are or THEM. And NSA, now you’ve tasted my mutton . . . how do you like it, huh?

Mexicans Shoot Back

When you have a major catastrophic event it takes days, sometimes years to sort out the facts. So it will be with Waco. Sherlock Holmes said that when you take away the impossible, that which remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth. Just like an onion. Let’s start peeling, shall we?

While there were rumored to have been up to five clubs at Twin Peaks that day, there were two clubs that were significant. Oh, and by the way, I refer to the bikers as “clubs,” not “gangs!” You see, that’s how people, or groups become demonized. You throw in a word here and there, and those words create what we call, “mental images,” unless, of course you’re black, and you’re burning down places like Ferguson, or Baltimore, then there are laws protecting you because if Obama had any sons, they’d look like them, but I digress.

Now where was I? Oh yes, two clubs. We have the Bandidos, and a cuddly little band of merry men known as the Cossacks. The Bandidos have been around since Jesus was a corporal. The Cossacks were relative new comers to the Texas scene. Now these guys have rules. They abide by these rules. Kinda like a constitution, and they follow it which puts them head and shoulders above Obama right there. They have territories, and interests attached to those territories. Mostly, it boils down to this is THEIR state. They don’t like people rolling in from places like California, and acting like they belong here, and unlike some folks, they’ll stand up and defend that. There are rules of etiquette. You see, there’s this thing called a “rocker” that sits below the club emblem on the jacket. That “rocker” signifies the club’s place or origin. The rule is very plain. If you’re from California, don’t put Texas on that Jacket! You think this is silly? Consider this; most Bikers are vets. Patches, medals, and ribbons MEAN things. Men fought and died for those things, and they aren’t to be taken lightly. This is opposed to letting a bunch of Muslims have prayer day on the state Capitol while we all sit there and wring our pearly white hands, wishing they’d just go away.

Honor, loyalty, and respect are important to these men. So, here come the Cossacks rolling into Texas, putting a Texas rocker on their jackets, and flipping the bird at the Bandidos. They really did that, folks. I’ve seen the pictures. Now they didn’t all immediately meet down on Main Street and start exchanging blows. Realizing the volatile nature of the situation they had meetings at places like Twin Peaks to try to find a middle ground. This is where it gets crazy. Let’s start peeling that onion.

Let’s get all the players in place. You have at least two rival clubs, and the cops, and brothers and sisters we HAD some cops there, serving and protecting. Regular cops, state cops, SWAT cops, and most likely a few Feds, who can’t seem to find any problems down on the border where the REAL “gangs” are, but they sure found Waco. Now, I’m gonna tell you from the get go, I don’t like Waco, and I don’t like Feds! I’ve been all over Texas and I can count the times I stopped in Waco on one hand. I think the FBI, CIA, and NSA are a complete waste of money we could just buy beer with, and do more good, but that’s just me. (Now watch the NSA assign a team to study that last statement trying to figure out what I really meant. See what I mean?)

So, hail, hail, the gang’s all here. Twin Peaks full of Bikers, and cops behind every bush, and on every roof. Oh yeah, they had snipers out that day serving, and protecting us. Pour a little beer on the fire and voila! You get a fist fight. Most amazing thing I ever saw, bikers drinking beer, and fighting in a bar. Never saw THAT coming. Well, as luck would have it, they spilled out into the parking lot. Now, consider this. All these seasoned Bikers, KNOWING the cops are there, suddenly decide to start shooting. If you believe that, well, have I got a bridge for you. Actually, I do! There’s this old bridge right there in Waco that looks like a miniature version of the Golden Gate. Ok, peel that onion. How many Bikers were shot, and how many COPS were shot? Do the math, connect the dots.

Before it was all over there were lots of bodies, and I think 172 arrests, all for “organized crime” and not ONE cell phone video to be had. DUDE! Even ISIS has cell phones. Of course, there was some gum shoe saying it was the most violent crime scene he’d seen in all his thirty-four years “serving and protecting” us. Guess he had the day off when Janet Reno decided to torch that church, huh? They sealed off the entire area so they could sanitize it, and the picture we DO have is all these mad dog bikers sitting docile on a bench, arrested. Now THAT’S a BLOOMING onion.

Of course the spin got to going, with the “authorities” claiming the bikers were putting a hit on all law enforcement . . . NO cops were shot that day. Don’t you think if the bikers were so vicious toward cops at least ONE of them would have thrown a beer mug, or SOMETHING? We’ve all seen this before. David Koresh led a band of crazy fanatics bent on overthrowing the government, and marrying little girls. Not ONE conviction in federal court. The bikers came out of Twin Peaks, guns a blazing . . . Not ONE cop got hurt, nor people in ANY of the surrounding shops. Swat them bees.

What gets me is if the government can amass such a force against AMERICANS what’s the problem with the border? Just string them snipers along that fence and little girls will be able to play jacks in the Texas sand. Oh, my bad . . . Mexicans shoot BACK!

Girl Scout Cookies

I had a wonderful evening. A friend came over, with Scotch, and we talked for hours, and guess what the topic was. ME! My friend moves in mysterious circles. Anyway, he gave me a story that was so good I just had to tell YOU. Seems the NSA has this thing called a “Theory.” There’s this room up there in Utah or some place filled with busy little bees with one thing on their minds. My articles! Yep, you got it. And the next time you fill out a check to the IRS just remember, you PAY these clowns! Anyway, they have this chart thing. All the militias they can identify are on it. Kinda looks like a pyrmid, I guess. At the bottom are all the “soldiers”, and it gets narrower and narrower as you get near the top, and at the very tip top is. . . you guessed it. . . WEIRD WILUR!
Seems they imagine that my articles are really coded messges from “headquarters” streaming out to all the patriots in Texas. I use some kind of “code” that they’re trying to break, so as to be able to stop the insurection at the source. I crappith thee NOT! Now bear in mind I can’t PAY most people to read my nonsense, but these idiots line up to see the next bit of stupidity emenating out of beautiful, downtown Killeen, Texas! I’m so blessed.

The NSA made a big mistake here, however, never to be one to let grass grow beneath my feet, watch me use this to increase my distribution. Don’t tell a songwriter someone is buying! For the record there is nothing dubious about my articles. I always thought I was straight out. I don’t think I could call the Americans any more names, but it seems that when I write, “The Nortes are a bunch of homosexual ass clowns,” they assign a team to try to figure out what I really mean.

Ok, attention NSA. I have a suggestion. You need to get into my mind, and here’s the way to do it. Get the CIA (another pack of ass clowns) to send over a beautifil twenty year old spy. Have her bring a box of Olivas, and a fifth of Jim Beam. If she’s wearing a girl scout uniform and has a box of cookies that’ll be a nice touch. Anyway, order her to spend the night with me, and by the morning I think you’ll know what Weird Wilbur is all about.
