Smile

Our lives remain the same. This is still America. You still have the love of your family and friends are still your strongest asset.

We still have our hobbies and will continue to shoot, hunt and fish. We still have our homes, farms, gardens. You still have sunrise and sunset and the joy they give us.

Yes, our country has changed. Sadly, I believe its lost to us forever. We shall adapt.




So please don't be sad, or angry, reach out and take your children close and give them a kiss. Shake a friends hand. Grab a rifle and enjoy a day at the range. Stake out a turkey and scout for the perfect Christmas tree.

Smile, our life continues despite their best efforts.

Stephen

  1. Thanks, Stephen. And maybe is as it is supposed to be. Maybe this is a call for us to step up and fight even harder for our rights.

    1. My pleasure, Bubba. You're correct, it's time to lock and load on our rights.

  2. Stephen, my heart is breaking for our country. But I am so blessed with a good family and good friends. We will continue to live and love. However, we are a lot smarter now..and better prepared. We will make it.

  3. Well said, my friend. Sadly, smiling is very hard today, except when I see my kids. It is for them that I am most heartbroken.

  4. This was the theme of my post this morning, I refuse to change my life because some little Kenyan living in free government housing wants me to. Living life well is the best revenge.

  5. Good attitude. It would be foolish to have one's happiness depend on a politician -any politician. If everyone stays focused on what's important, we'll all be fine.

  14. We did our best. We voted. Now, we must carry on. And do what we can to correct the problems of our nation.

    We could start, by riding our senators, and congressman's butt's. Speak up! Write letters. Get more involved with our government. Voice our anger. No more being politically correct. Say what you mean, OUT LOUD!

    It's not over yet. Look how long it took our forefathers to get this nation going.

    We CAN bring our nation back.

  15. A black cloud hung over my head most of the morning, Stephen. I didn't reach your level of "zen" with the situation as quickly as you did, but I did get there eventually :) Its hard to stay feeling pissed off and defeated on a bright Texas Fall day.

    Thanks for posting this, Pal. Lots of folks needed it, including me.

  16. The tax hike that was already in the works has been passed. It was just announced on television. I know we need to keep Welfare in the black. . . . uh. . . . *cough*. . . and it's just a matter of moments before my social security is taken in order to keep it that way.

    The political advertisements are now at an end, but the 6 o'clock news keeps stabbing me in the brain.

    Sarah, Obama's aunt in Kenya, was just on. It's amazing how an old woman can dance with a purple feather bucket on her head.

  17. Thanks for the good news. I think it's time to dust off the old keyboard and make some noise. I'm fed up already about the other side saying how I need to come to their side because they won. BS.

  19. What scares me the most is the total collapse of the dollar, and that is where we are headed. America as we know it will not survive that. Be prepared!
