Sunny Southern Weather


One day it's Albertan ice and snow, and the next? Balmy autumnal Texas where everyone's enjoying porchlife in the temperate 70s, beautiful. Well, enjoy it while you can before the New Ice Age kicks in. Speaking of climate catastrophe, say a prayer for Linda, whose homestead's threatened by a seriously aggressive weather front. In other news, I found this uplifting, via LL:


“There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans of American nationality and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding house. We have room for one sole loyalty, which is to the American people.” — Theodore Roosevelt.


Granted, I fly several flags, not least the Bonnie Blue, but still. Then there's the NSA, which has fallen in love with the pernicious rainbow. Why, because national security?


Let’s start here with the Daily Wire. The NSA’s 34-page glossary defines hundreds of social justice terms, including “white fragility,” “transmisogyny,” and “settler colonialism.” If you don’t buy into the bullshit, you shouldn’t work there. “But the agency, which has been sharply criticized for its mass surveillance operations on American citizens, goes beyond openly endorsing the extreme tenets of Critical Race Theory with its glossary — it pushes queer theory as an approach that ‘critically deconstructs and challenges binaries such as male and female or heterosexual and homosexual.'”

Just think, readers, how much more secure we are as a nation for actively deconstructing binaries, you know, like "right and wrong." Awesome, now the NSA can spy on everyone with gay impunity and our beloved rulers can do whatever they want, do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law, sorta thing.

So who's in charge here, a gang of satanic Crowleyite Lao Tze Maoists? Asking for a friend.

I actually don't think anyone 'knows' who is in charge...lots of folks think 'they' are... The reality???

LSP said...

Good call, NFO.

You all be safe and God bless.

Teddy Roosevelt had a wonderful way with words didn't he? Was a little too progressive for me but the man could give a speech.

I agree, even though it was kind of cool to "sign in" at Campbell castle in Scotland I have always identified as only an American. No Scottish American for me even though my grandfather emigrated from Scotland when he was about 6 years old. When I fly a flag, which is pretty rare anymore, it is the US flag with the MIA/POW flag only.

Roosevelt was very against hyphenated Americans, and, as a cis-gendered-straight-white-male-German-American I agree.

Generally speaking, America has become soft...physically, mentally, and spiritually. Time For A Reset to God's prescription and values that Our Founders embraced and envisioned with their words and documents, and one we used to hold as foundational (as late as my generation).

We are American's, regardless of ethnicity, heritage, ancestry, or "proclivity"...Roosevelt's statement needs to be read OUT LOUD - publicly - by every member of government who is in a position to make law or influence the rest of us. Then they have 1 minute to let it sink in before being allowed to dismiss the sentiment. Don't like it? There's the door, forcibly if need be. I'll buy the coffee and donuts.

The porch photo needs a doggeh in it.

As to the NSA thing, Satan is all in with his war against the family as Sister Lucia had foretold. We know how the story ends.

LSP said...

Thank God for that, Linda. Rest assured of prayers.

LSP said...

Right with you, ED.

Mind you, I'm dual cit but even so, don't use hyphens. That's weird and schizo. And right, what a great quote, thx, LL.

LSP said...

Doktor, are you not aware that "Teddy" Roosevelt was a colonialist, white aggressor supremacist?

Time for you to check your privilege.

LSP said...

Right on, Mr. Paul.

LSP said...

Dammit, DOS, should've invited the hound into the photo op.

Good Lucia call.
