Thank you all and God Bless you all


I am humbled beyond words of this tribe that Misha (Bless you my Liege) has created.  They say that miracles happen when your not looking and in the places you would never think of.

This will be money that frugally husband and spent wisely.  This get us out from under the water and able to dog paddle.

Special thanks to all of you who gave and to those that couldn’t I understand, I pray that one day I’ll be in a position to be able pay forward to someone else.

Crunchie and Old Dog may the Lord Bless you and yours and thank you my brothers.

I’ll leave it to those read the good Book better than I for an appropriate verse.

Again God Bless our little tribal village of the internet and all that gather around our fire.


PS.  Now that I don’t have to worry about the wolves trying to turn my flanks I’m going to be an even more pithy, sarcastic bastard against the NSDWP

    It’s good to hear that you have your head above water. I’ll still keep praying for ya.

    Light, the obvious benefit this support brings you is its own reward. Others here will have greater command of Bible verse, so I will instead offer some words in my own way.

    It is said that being broke is a temporary situation, but that being poor is a state of mind. Here is to a hope that the aid you receive here is at least as valuable to state of mind as to your immediate need.

    Offered with sincere interest in your improving circumstances.

    Hang in there, friend.

    Better times are coming.

  5. 5

    Like I told ya Light, we help our brothers when we can, with what we can.

    The people here, people I am proud to call my friends, are some of the most giving and caring people right wing death beasts you’ll ever meet. They embody the purest altruism and charity that America has always been about.

    My prayers will continue to pray for you and your mother, and most sincerely that you and she make it back to Sioux Falls one day.

    Second all that Crunchie said. We do what we can and at this time I could, that was the ONLY question.

    This is a slightly dysfunctional family of (as Crunchie said) right wing death beasts. Ya know what Death Beasts do, they protect their own!

    Hang in there, Light, and remember: God is a tad bigger than the economy! Norman Vincent Peale wrote a great story about being down to his last buck or two in the Depression, and his wife Ruth told him to put a dollar in the plate. That made him clench, but he did it — and the Lord sent him money from another source, which is just what Ruth expected would happen.

    More good news … Let’s spike the Walmart ammo rumor. They ARE still selling ammo; just can’t keep up with the demand (ergo, empty shelves). Haven’t changed their policy, either. GOOD FOR THEM.

    See here:

    My cousin went to Walmart this weekend to pick up some gun stuff, and said the place was picked as clean as Thanksgiving’s turkey carcass. The clerk said they are TRYING to keep up with demand, but they are getting twice as much business as they did in 2008! Once again, the Dickhead in our White House is proving to be the world’s best gun salesman.

    I didn’t watch old Chicken-lips’s Press Con, or the lickspittle “press” Q&A session after, IF Lord Ogabe allowed one. Could Not Be Bothered to Waste My Time. Went to the movies instead, and saw THE IMPOSSIBLE, a terrific movie about a family fighting to survive the 2004 Indonesian tsunami (true story, incredibly moving).

    Tallulah growls and barks:

    That story by Peale was in his famous book, THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING (which should have been named THE POWER OF POSITIVE CHRIST-CENTERED THINKING).

    It’s actually a GREAT book for times like these: he and his wife struggled through the Great Depression, and with God’s help, got through it okay. He’s an old-school minister, born in 1898, so the book isn’t like those hucksters who are out there claiming God is all and ONLY about good times, but he uses the Bible as his guide in all things, and finds a power of comfort and all the help we could ever need therein.

    Check it out. The library has it, too. 🙂

    This is why we do what we do….
    The following link I have chosen to add, for it describes me to a tee.
    I’ve been enslaved once, to a drug, a seemingly innocuous beverage, by my own hand.
    I know first hand what it is like to forsake, even abandon hopes or concerns in a blind, mindless pursuit of quelling the mind-destroying craving. A craving not having to be chemically induced, for the ideology we now face and may have to fight is possessed of a similar desire.
    Yet it will generally not kill you, not until it has taken everything else good and decent in your life…….and nothing remains but your life…….for then it, such as you , have run out of options. A dessicated, shaking, craven shell of what used to be a man……..
    I know these things………………and I believe understand many of these haters far better than they understand themselves…..this is why I share them now, to help you understand a sixty year old man.
    And know now, also, when all is said and done, I value my regained honor, my principles, and especially my God Jesus more than my own life itself……I worked damn hard for it.
    He gave me a break, I ran with it.
    You have to own your own shit,,,,,,
    Over time, all this led to my acquiring the finest circle of friends a man could hope for…..
    To stand shoulder to shoulder with them, knowing and believing I belong there……with those men and women.
    Seeking to live up to that ideal, often enduring many a hardship or abuse, for often a silent, enduring discretion is truly the best way. The mission remains paramount.
    Discovering many of my actions are on behalf of others….and in truth I didn’t notice.
    Until it was pointed out to me. Therin lies the key……for it is now what you are.
    And for this I am grateful……
    For in this world and the next, we shall endure… for the others, the sheep, they chose their own destiny……let them live in and with it. How long can you outrun yourself? For the most important world to me is the one have yet to inhabit. At best I can offer a prayer to the God they despise for them. For I know what it is like to have no God, and I fear it far, far more than anything else.
    I remember history, I excelled in it, as well as mathematics………..and I know what happens to the useful idiots when their purpose is served. Of course they will blame us, even in death, but I know that game well.
    I will answer for things wrong……and done right…and having the divine scales balanced by the Great Arbiter. Know them not by their thoughts, or even their words, but rather by their works.
    Somehow solace can be found in that thought……
    Many trials I needed or deserved….for in such fashions and manners one learns of onself. You have choices to make.
    I no longer play the old game, I loathe it, for I have friends and standards to live up to……
    Including my own…..
    Yes, those allegedly cold, hearted, selfish,.the very same ones coming to my aid with hands, hearts, time and wallets extended……as I do now…as best I can…..for I know their value.
    I guess we’re kind of funny that way….
    I can well understand why we are reviled, hated and despised…….for the contrast remains simply too great.
    To well believe great trials and tribulations are coming, the beating of distant drums. To choose my words carefully….
    I pray I do the right thing.
    And this is why we do what we do, Light.
    For it is what we are……

    Dude – I wish I could have helped. I normally do, but have been so bogged down with the THOUSANDS I owe my lawyer in my efforts to make my ex pay for his children, that I literally live paycheck to paycheck. I’m hoping this will be over soon, and then I’ll take you out for beer. And knowing your drinking habits, I may need an entire paycheck! 😉

    Hang in there! :em01:

    Reporting in, here.

    Many of you might remember last year, when you fine people helped me and my wife fight cancer, while moving to texas.

    Sadly… My wife lost her fight this past june 30th, after giving it a hell of a fight. Cancer may have one, but will remember my wife’s name for a long time.

    I’m.. recovering. Like Kent, there’s a large, wife-shaped hole in my life… I doubt it will ever be filled.

    But, thanks to you all, I have a roof over my head, food in my mouth, and I’m moving foreward. I have survived. I’m even starting to flourish. And it’s all thanks to you. I could not have gotten where I am without you all.

    I just wanted you guys and gals to know that your efforts -did- accomplish something. And, if my current projects bear fruit, I may be able to start giving back to the community sooner than I anticipated.
