America…wake the hell up and smell the coffee! Heck folks, at this stage of the of the game one has to wonder if it’s already far too late to reverse course. Anymore these days…who knows?

Either way, see what you think about this article. I just had to share it with you and see what your opinions are:

As I travel the road of life, I find it very interesting how men who lived so long ago and experienced so much of life were able to see what was coming in the future, not to mention what they saw in their own day. Aristotle could not have hit the nail on the head any closer than this:

“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.”

I remember looking at a book once that was titled “What Men Have Learned from History.” As I opened the 100-page book, I found that the pages were all blank. The point was well made. Men do not learn from history. Unfortunately, society has proven this to be the case over and over again. In America today you can see the clear digression of society. What was once evil in our eyes some now call good. The high standards of virtue and morality that were once considered to be the foundation of our families are now laughed at and called “old fashioned” and “outdated.”

We now live in a nation where “tolerance” has become some sort of virtue, and “intolerance” for the things that go against God’s Word is called “hate.” The truth is God is love (1 John 4:8), and God gave His Law because He loves. Yet, America has now become so wise in her own eyes that its people have become fools (Romans 1:22).

Those who fought, bled, and died for our country to establish our Constitution, those who sacrificed to make us free were looked upon as heroes. Now, those who stick to the Constitution and fight to make sure it is adhered to are demonized, criticized by the state-run media and labeled “intolerant haters.”

We now live in a country where “evangelical Christians” are labeled by our own military as No. 1 on the list of terrorists; when if it were not for the “evangelical Christians” found in the “Black-Robed Regiment” who fought to give us this country, we would not have a nation to label anyone anything.


Then there are the do-nothings who give way to apathy. They say, “This is America, it will never happen here!” – as they look at the blank pages in the book of history once again and ignore all the signs of the times that clearly point out tyranny in our government, lawlessness and an attack against all that is good.

What has happened, America? Why have we given over to this change from the founding values of our great nation to the lawlessness we see today? The Bible clearly says in Proverbs 24:21, “… meddle not with them that are given to change.” So why are we changing?

America for the most part has cowered shamefully and refused to lawfully fight against evils.

It was Abraham Lincoln who said, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

Are we allowing our nation to be destroyed? Yes. Are we seeing judgment turned backwards? Yes. But the real question is, are YOU willing to stand up and do something about it? ________ (Your answer here). That remains to be seen.

It’s time for Americans to rise up, learn from the past, and say enough is enough.

Maybe we all could use a little lesson from those who are labeled “old and confused.”


One evening, a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events. The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.

The Grandma replied, “Well, let me think a minute. I was born before television, penicillin, polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, Frisbees and the pill. There was no radar, credit cards, laser beams or ballpoint pens.

Man had not invented panty hose, air conditioners, dishwashers or clothes dryers, and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air, and man hadn’t yet walked on the moon.

Your grandfather and I got married first – and then lived together. Every family had a father and a mother. Until I was 25, I called every man older than I, ‘Sir.’ We were before gay rights, computer dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy. Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense. We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong, and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.

Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege. We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent. Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins. Draft dodgers were people who closed their front doors when the evening breeze started. Timesharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends – not purchasing condominiums.

We never heard of FM radios. And I don’t ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey. If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan’ on it, it was junk. The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam. Pizza Hut, McDonalds, and instant coffee were unheard of.

We had five and 10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for five and 10 cents. Ice cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel. And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and two postcards. You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.

In my day, ‘grass’ was mowed, ‘coke’ was a cold drink, ‘pot’ was something your mother cooked in, and ‘rock music’ was your grandmother’s lullaby. ‘Aids’ were helpers in the Principal’s office, ‘chip’ meant a piece of wood, ‘hardware’ was found in a hardware store, and ‘software’ wasn’t even a word. We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us ‘old and confused’ and say there is a generation gap.”

  1. Wow…since I see nobody around this evening, check this out;


    • Its rolling on rubber tires. Kiev protestors showed us clearly how to solve that problem, give it a hotfoot.

      • Mr. Rational says:

        We built them, we can defeat them.  Comes with the territory.

        I suspect that the armories holding the billions of rounds of ammo ordered by the DHS and other three-letter agencies aren’t going to be much more use to them—are just as likely to be used against them.  The WWII Liberator pistol was meant to kill an enemy soldier to liberate his gun and ammo.  Every deer rifle in the USA is a Liberator, and then you have forged orders to supply troops which gets diverted to the patriots… ideally, just before there is a real assault when they actually need resupply.

        If the cold civil war goes hot, there are going to be a lot of amazing stories.  I just hope that the people in them live long enough to tell them.

        • Art Vandelay says:

          I agree that the 3 million or so soldiers in the army, plus a few more million local and state cops are no match for 100+million armed patriots. We could win a civil war and throw the tyrants out, but we wont and here’s why: the tyrants aren’t stupid. We will only get 100+ million patriots fighting in the streets with their “liberator” weapons if they take away everything. No heat. No electricity. No food. No water. When men have nothing to lose, they will fight and win. But right now, everyone is still fat, well fed, warm, and absorbed in American Idol or Pawn Stars. And well medicated on booze and prescription drugs. The tyrants know that as long as they keep the tyranny soft and keep the sheeple passive, they have nothing to worry about.

  2. But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. 2 Timothy 3

    Pretty much sums it up

      Great stuff, grumpy! Outtasight!

      As for the first:

      Can you imagine 15 yards for saying the “n” word. I really want to see the guy go to the center of the field, stick the flag up and say, 15 yards, 37 defense for using the “n” word.

      For the second, the youngster seems pretty wise.

      For the third, I had wondered what had happened to CS, aka ‘The Snag’.

      Number four will need further study.

    • Grumpy..

      Sheehan is still stuck on stupid.

    Obutthole: You threatening me?

    Putin: What are you gonna do about it? You think anyone’s gonna believe you? You think anyone is gonna take your word over mine? I’m a man of respect around here. They love me around here. I’m a swell guy. You’re a lying sack of shit and everybody knows it. Oh, you’re a tough guy. Hey c’mon. Get on your feet pal. Let’s find out how tough you are. I wanna know right now how tough you are.

    [offers Obutthole his chin]

    Putin: Just take the first shot. I’m begging you, take a shot. Just one hit. Come on, that’s all I need, just one swing…

    [Obutthole pauses, pissing his pants]

    Putin: That’s what I thought. You’re a gutless turd.

    If there was a confrontation, that’s about how I figure the dialogue would go. A few good quotes from that film (highly applicable).

  5. Somewhat off topic…still, this only takes a second to check out.


  6. 9th Circuit: US Flag “Offensive” to Mexicans in the USA

    “The 9th Circuit upheld the rights of Mexican students celebrating a holiday of another country over U.S. student proudly supporting this country,” said attorney William Becker .

    Officials at a Northern California high school acted appropriately when they ordered students wearing American flag T-shirts to turn the garments inside out during the Mexican heritage celebration Cinco de Mayo, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.

    Administrators feared the American-flag shirts would enflame the passions of Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday. (AP)

    Please try to imagine if the races were reversed. people were “concerned” about racial violence from a bunch of white students against Mexicans.

    For that matter, why do they assume that Mexican students would get angry? Seems a bit racist to me.

    No has to worry about the Irish attacking or even being offended by students wearing or displaying an American flag on St. Patrick’s Day.

    A disturbingly under reported aspect to this story is all the hateful bullying the white students had to endure from Hispanic students

    What if a group of Evangelicals protested the California “Harvey Milk Day” mandate? Would homosexuals be compelled to be silent?


    • Hey EN…long time no see! Great to see you today…hope others check out your site. Also hope all has been well with you.

      • @BIGTimer

        THANK YOU!

        I try to read AWD as frequently as possible- it is astounding how often it is blocked by educrat fascists and workplace totalitarians

        NEED to get back to writing!

        I appreciate your encouraging words!

        • Heck, you’re more than welcome and right back atcha!

          Btw…blocked indeed, something really weird is going on with twitter today when it comes to trying to post links to this site. – Color me furious.

  7. is it to late to save the country…….as much as I hate to admit it I believe it is too late…….that’s not to say I won’t fight to do my part in saving the country from the Bolshevistic…..I will do my part to my dying day……….

    too much has transpired in the last several years……..the Bolshevistic are firmly in control and they are not going to let go without a fight…..and I mean they are going to fight like all hell has broken out to stay in control……and make no mistake about it, they are in control………………….

    there is no opposition party to confront the Marxists (democrats)…..the republicans are of the same cloth……we have no one but the Tea Party to rely on and they are being routed by the Bolshevistic in the IRS as I write this……….yes these elections coming up are going to be crucial, that goes without saying………….

    I don’t see Americans “””waking up”””” what so-ever….yes a few are but the majority are give me my American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, or my football, and leave me alone………………most Americans just don’t care…..apathy is the prominent emotion that pervades the country right now………too many young single unmarried women with their babies hanging off of them that need a federal government to act as their absent husband…..too many blacks with Obongo-phones and an EBT card………just too damn many on the dole that like being on the dole………..

    do I think we have lost the country….yes I do……..can we get it back……probably not……….

    but I will say this…..I am not hearing “taps”just yet…..but we just might in the not to distant future and I realy don’t want to hear “taps” ……………..most of the people I know are saying what I am felling, things don’t look good………………


  8. Snake Oiler says:

    Ahhahahahahaha! Vlad is the man!

    As President Vladimir Putin opens the Sochi Winter Olympics next Monday while fending off a storm of international criticism, he will have the satisfaction of knowing that his current approval ratings are higher than those of the leaders of the U.S., Britain, and France—all of whom snubbed him by declining to attend.

    In the latest sounding by the independent and widely respected Levada Center, 65 percent of respondents said they approved of Putin’s actions. That compares to 42 percent for President Obama, 32 percent for the government of British Prime Minister David Cameron, and 22 percent for French President François Hollande. (Only Angela Merkel of Germany, at 69 percent, gives him competition.)


    I would figure that it won’t be long until his popularity numbers will outstrip those of president Half-a-Sissy, sellout creep Cameron and that French twerp combined.

  9. is America waking up……..

    well, judge for yourself……what do you think…….do you think these guys are going to wake up………


  10. hateful communist bitch “Lois Lerner” says she will testify……….

    hey bitch, you don’t get to decide if you testify or not……your going to testify and you had better not lie your god-damn commie ass off either, bitch…………………..


    • Bluto…

      Since that report has come out, her lawyer says Issa got it wrong and won’t be testifying. – Liars on the left surround us!!!

      • Issa is an asshole for allowing this bitch to get away with this…………she gave up her 5th amendment right the first time she opened her mouth and Issa let her get away………..it’s time to take this commie bitch down…..place her in irons, drag her ass off to prison and let her think about it for a week or two………….

        • Nothing is going to happen to these future convicts until we take the senate…and have republican president. It’s not Issa’s fault regarding this lying bitch and what she does…just my two cents.

          • Issa let her go……Lerner opened her mouth during the last hearing she was called to …….that automatically disqualified her from using the 5th………and everyone who knows how the 5th works can verify that…..he let her go……he can subpeona her and she has to testify or she is in contempt…………

            he needs to get her instead of kissing her ass………………………..

          • All he has left is for congress to vote to hold her in contempt of congress if she refuses to speak Wed., that’s it. – He was told she was going to testify without taking the fifth…what the hell more can he do?

          • he can break her god-damn neck…………

          • Roaring with laughter! That he could…but you know where he’d end up!

            Btw…doesn’t this remind you of AG Holder? First AG to be held in contempt of congress in our nations history, yet Holder gives the middle finger to congress, the American people and continues to flaunt the laws on the books.

            Bluto…we’ve never seen an out of control regime like this one!!!

          • for the life of me….I don’t know how they get away with it………..they flaunt the law, diregard the law, change the laws, violate the laws…and just simply make up laws when it suits them……

            never seen antything like this before….and there is no one to stop them or no one who has the cajones to stop them…………………damn bastads have just given these sons-a-bitches the country and they are ruining it as fast as they can………….

          • Destroying as much as they can as fast they can at breakneck speed Bluto. The only thing I know to stop them is a real revolution….and we know that ain’t gonna happen.

            If a republican does win the WH next go ’round…good luck will be needed, how he or she could unravel the mess these marxists have made is beyond me. Plus, we know the press will be working against whomever is at the helm on our side of the aisle 24/7!

          • I know….it will be next to impossible……

            but I hate that god-damn commie bitch “Lerner”…….it’s her arrogance that gets me……..that is one arrogant communist……….and the IRS and the rest of the government is infected with hundreds/thousands of her type…………..

            Monica Crowley is talking about Lois Lerner right now……..she just said Lerner wants an immunity deal……I say no….put her in jail for a few weeks and see if that doesn’t change her mind…….

          • Hear! Hear! – I’m glad both of us got to vent about this subject!

        • Bluto…

          Don’t think I’m not angry about all of this I am. And right you are about your her and the power of the IRS. – Just to think, the IRS via Obama now has the power over us on OCare if we don’t comply. Well, I won’t be complying…it will be over my dead body first!

          • I know Big, ……………….I hope there are millions who are going to passively refuse to comply……Id like to see a real revolt but I doubt that will happen…….right now our only hope is take the Senate, keep the House….and hope some with cahones have be elected who will stand up to this crap……….and call for civil disobedience….or passive disobedience….and refuse to become sheep for the shearer………

  11. What do the police need Mine Resistant Anti-Personnel vehicles for anyway? Hmm?

    IED’s on American streets?

  12. Bradlee Dean is an amazing man. He is narrating this video. Bradlee goes into high schools and gives seminars. Sometimes the administration shuts him down even when the students want him to stay and finish the lecture. All of his videos are are wnd.com.

    I found this video while searching ppsimmons channel. The title of the video is not what it contains. This woman found a NASA war document titled The Future is Now July 2001 for 2025. Please watch it and share it. Much needed information is conveyed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Vw4GVpm5-M
    God Bless the Patriots of the Constutional Republic who’s only prayer is for a free and just country restored to it’s principles and God given rights.

    • Arlie…

      Thanks so much for all that information…much appreciated. – Looking forward to watching that vid later this evening.

  13. The problems of this country are numerous but most of them lead back to the political crowd in Washington D.C. We regular citizens are faced with the same problem we had in 1776. We have taxation without representation. If you think you are represented in Washington by anyone,…..think again. The majority of the American people (a large majority) are against obamacare but you have it. A larger majority is against amnesty against squatters who simply crossed our borders and use up our hospitals, welfare system, and collect our money; yet….almost everyone one of those shysters in Washington try over and over to get amnesty for invaders anyway. The majority of Americans and states want a voter to produce valid I.D. to vote in our elections. It is just common sense. However,….because a few blacks say its racist to ask for ID,….the whole democratic party (which is now communist) is against it and it has not been passed. Americans are tired of racism against whites in the form of Affirmative action,…..yet the government keeps doubling-down on it making whites second class citizens. No one in Washington takes up for us …..ever. Every state tired of this farce of a government must entertain secession again. I am not speaking only of the South (old Confederacy) but the Midwest and parts of the west. Washinton D.C., the east coast, and California are hopeless. They are no longer Americans in politics, world view, or in their hearts. They are left leaning, collectivist, and constitution haters. These people have large populations because of large, old cities therefore they dictate to all of us. This has to stop. I don’t want to be ruled by Washington anymore. Leave me the f’k alone.

    • Your post hit so many nails on the head. – Your last sentence sums it up for me. I have had it…can’t take much more.

  14. misterbill says:

    “Tolerance is the virtue of a man without convictions.” G. K. Chesterton

    Do you tolerate the invasion of America.

    Do you tolerate the insult of a soldier refusing to salute the flag?

    Do you tolerate the refusal of school authorities to allow prayer in schools?

    Do you tolerate the decision that American students cannot wear patriotic shirts to school lest they offend residents who hate America?

    Do you tolerate the loss of freedom of a baker to refuse to bake a cake for a same sex wedding? (I honestly believe this one to be an egregious violation of the First.)

    Do you tolerate a father being locked up by a federal judge because he did not want his elementary school child to be taught about homosexuality as an alternate life style? (Wolfe – MA)

    Do you tolerate 99% of the citizens not allowed to celebrate religious holidays because of atheists.

    Do you subscribe to public universities having classes such as African American history.

    Do you subscribe to entire months such as Black History month, Muslim month. etc. etc.?

    Why do the Irish only get St Patrick’s day, the Italians Columbus day? (and so on?)

    Do you subscribe to having any mention of God removed from all government documents, courts, buildings,etc?

    Do you believe the CT legislation has the power to enact laws similar to those that were the start of the 3rd Reich?

    Where does it stop? Where does it end? The 3% or less of homosexuals and the 1% of atheists should not be framing the laws of our country–but–they do so because of the 47-51% of Progressives.

    Do you believe that we are in a war at this time to save America? Unarmed at the moment.)

    I am sure there are many here who can raise many more questions, but it still comes down to when does it end? Is CT the proving ground? Would you go there to support the citizens? What do you think should be done to the Socialist/communist legislature in CT?

    What to do? What to do??

    Apathy- the state of the average American.

    • Excellent…all of it. – Where does it end indeed. I never thought I’d live to see the day regarding what’s happened to our nation. Apathy says it all. I fear it may be far too late to save anything remotely close to what our founding fathers fought and died for. Color me disgusted.
