Thanks Again, All of You, For Being You

I know, we don’t need any more bad news, but these aren’t really all bad. Well, they are, but they’re also good as they further prove, as if anybody needed proof, what great people you Rotties are.

I just want to humbly thank those of you who, in spite of money truly being too tight to mention in the OgabeTopia that we currently live in, reached out to help our brother LC purple raider who is currently facing a battle with a cancer that has attacked his beloved wife.

I also want to update you to let you know that the funds have been signed, sealed and shipped, and to tell you that it took a bit longer than I’d expected. Part of it was due to PayPal being a bit tardy in transferring the funds to my account so I could cut the check (normally that’s not an issue, I’m well covered but… OgabeTopia), but part of it is also due to me having been a lot less active than I ought to be and thus not knowing until I was running a routine check of the balance in the Imperial PayPal and noted an influx of payments I didn’t expect. Thankfully, the comments let me know what they were all about. Please, please use that comment function. It’s extremely helpful to me.

And that last part, me not noticing, is entirely my fault. I apologize for that unreservedly. If I’d been on top of things it would not have taken me a few extra days to see it. MY maximum bad. But, again, the funds are now on their way and, once again, thank you.

Thatisall.

    Thank you all for your overwhelming support.

    All the rooms I’ve been in lately have been extremely dusty. Hopefully the air will clear up some.

    The first round of Chemo and Radiation is over, now we must face surgery in the next few weeks.

    Unfortunately I’m not around much anymore, but I will give updates from time to time, when I get access to a computer.

    And please pray for all cancer victims. It’s a vicious way to go.

    Again, thank you all.

    OFF TOPIC , but very important

    Retired Army Officer: DHS Must Surrender Their War Weapons to Dept. of Defense
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, March 24, 2013, 10:51 AM

    On Saturday March 23, Terry M. Hestilow, a retired Army officer with nearly 30 years of service under his belt, posted this letter he sent to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) this week. Hestilow wants DHS to hand over their war weapons to the Department of Defense.

    The Honorable Senator John Cornyn, State of Texas
    United States Senate
    517 Hart Senate Office Building
    Washington, D.C. 20510

    Re: Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and that agencies preparation for war against citizens of the United States of America

    Dear Senator Cornyn,

    It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America. To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America.

    Significant is the fact that at the same time the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States in accordance with his 2008 campaign speech claiming,

    “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve gotta (sic) have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded [as the United States military]”–Candidate Barack Obama, 2008.

    The Obama administration is deliberately defunding, overextending, and hollowing the Department of Defense; the only legitimate agency of the U.S. government with a war mission.

    This act of the Obama administration stands as a glaring threat of war against our nation’s citizens! This act of the Obama administration can only be understood as a tyrannical threat against the Constitution of the United States of America! If left unresolved, the peace loving citizens who have sworn to defend the United States Constitution “against all enemies, both foreign and domestic” are left no option except to prepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against this Administration’s “coup” against the People and the foundations of liberty fought for and defended for the past 238 years. We have no choice if we honor our oaths.

    The only proper response to this threat against the American people is for the representatives of the People, the members of the U.S. House and Senate, to demand in clear terms that the Administration cannot ignore, that the Department of Homeland Security immediately surrender their newly appropriated weapons of war to the Department of Defense (DoD). Further, since the DHS has assumed a position in the Administration to enforce the tyrannical acts of this president against the People of the United States against the limits of the United States Constitution, it remains for the United States Congress to exercise its limiting power in the balancing of powers established by our founding fathers, to disestablish and dissolve the DHS as soon as possible. One needs only to look to the rise of Adolf Hitler, and his associated DHS organizations, the SA and the SS, of 1932-1934, to see the outcome of allowing an agency of government this kind of control over the free citizens of a nation. The people of Germany could not have imagined, until it was too late, the danger of allowing a tyrant this kind of power. We must not be so naïve as to think it will not happen to us as well if we remain passive toward this power grab by the Marxist Obama administration!

    Finally, for more than two centuries the nation has lived in peace at home because of the protections of our legitimate military and the many appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies, supported by Constitutional courts. We stand today at a cross-road. Will we allow this present Administration to overthrow our United States Constitution and its legal processes to amend injustices, or, will we honor our obligations to defend the Constitution against a “domestic” enemy? Our Constitution lays out the proper methods of resolving our differences; and it does not include its overthrow by a rogue agency of a Marxist leadership at home. You, sir, are our constitutionally elected agent to defend our Constitution at home. We are counting upon you. We remain aware, however, of this present threat and will not expose ourselves as an easy prey to the authors of the destruction of our nation.

    I know that this letter demands much of you. We elected you because we, the citizens of the State of Texas, believe that you are up to the task at hand and will, against all threats, honor your oath and office. We are also writing to your fellow members of the House and Senate to stand in integrity with the Constitution and against this present threat by the Obama administration and his DHS.

    We refuse to surrender our Constitution or our nation!

    Resolved,

    Captain Terry M. Hestilow
    United States Army, Retired

    @ Gladiator

    Seeing reports today that DHS has ordered another 360000 rounds of hollow point .40. At this stage of the game I am curious as to where they are storing the rounds. Supply line details (carriers, routes,) etc. I’m also curious as the where the MRAP are located. Tha ammo companies need to be pressured to serve the civilian markets prior to DHS. I figure even if DHS has half the reported rounds, 500 million should last em awhile.
