Let’s be real

The foreign enemies of the United States, ISIS among them do truly piss me off profoundly. There is only one thing we can do when it comes to the threat from ISIS and that is kill them all. I am a huge supporter of that.

Compared to the ongoing Domestic Menace though, I’m not sure if they really compete when it comes to lethality.

Shootings in Baltmore over the Memorial Day Weekend.

Shootings in Chicago over the Memorial Day Weekend.

New York City was down this year with only 23 people killed in 16 shootings this past weekend.

If that had happened to Americans overseas the public would be calling for enhanced air strikes, drone strikes, missile strikes or whatever we can do without engaging Congress in the conversation. Instead we silently endure, knowing that we aren’t a statistic yet while also being fully aware of the fact that the upward trend in mass violence and murder has been encouraged by our national leadership. Let’s be real. The greatest threat to our national security is the ongoing Domestic Menace.

There is no avoiding it.

What are we going to do or not do about it?

Get all patriotic again when we go to War with China?

No more Ambiguity

China is weaponizing one of its man-made islands

Eventually our Navy is going to be put to a test here.

Inciting Debauchery

Study closely how this is done…

Too much booty shaking can be disruptive to morality, so says “Egyptian Authorities”.

Poor girl. She’s had to flee the Country. You know, it’s been a very long time since I have felt the need to dedicate a music video in honor of someone or some thing that is going on in Egypt. It’s a very special song and many of you have enjoyed the associated music video here many times, just not in a long time.

Here’s to you, Unknown Fugitive Egyptian Dancing Girl…

In Honor of the Fallen

The Military that we field today is the recipient of all the lessons that it has learned in all the Battles it has ever fought. Naturally those lessons are written in the blood of those whose lives were required to teach those lessons. All of those lessons are cataloged, studied and taught at the various Military Academies that produce those who will lead our Troops into Battle. Those lessons are then imparted on the Troops whose lives depend on serving in a Military that studies its lessons well so that when the time comes that they should execute a Battle Plan, it will take into account all the lessons that the History of Warfare has taught it.

In the award winning National Geographic Documentary that follows, you will get to see what War is all about. You will see the finest young men this Country can produce meet the obligations of the Oath of Enlistment they volunteered to make. They signed a contract to serve in a unit that guaranteed that they would meet the Enemy in the land of the Enemy. Everything that you will witness them enduring in the documentary that follows are the things they asked to endure knowing that it may well cost them their lives. Most of them are teenagers.

When you think of those who have given their lives in the cause of Freedom on behalf of the people of the United States it is easy to think of them as larger than life, made of steel. They weren’t. Most of them were young boys until they decided to defend the United States with their lives. They were just like the young men you are about to meet in a small piece of Hell on Earth known as the Korengal Valley, Afghanistan.

In Honor of all of the men and women who have fallen in the cause of the United States in the current World War and all who have fallen who have provided the lessons of how it is that our Nation has been secured…

Friday Night at the Movies

post-944-1224455329

For most Americans tonight is the beginning of their first 3 Day Weekend of 2015. There are some who have already had one but for most of us this is the first real big weekend to get out, maybe take a road trip or maybe go the Beach, the Lake, the River, the Mountains or wherever anyone might choose to escape to after being on a steady grind for nearly 5 Months now. Even when I was in the Army, today marked the beginning of a long awaited party weekend. Friday began with Division Review. This was followed by early dismissal of the Troops and then I hit the road to Florida. I spent my first Memorial Day Weekend in the Army in Jail in my hometown. Very nice. As I recall, not a single thought about the true meaning of Memorial Day passed through my mind as I enjoyed the plush environs of the Duval County Jail.

Well this is not the Duval County Jail. This is the Real Revo. We will remember the things Memorial Day is all about. We will honor the sacrifices made in the defense of this Country in several ways, one of which is by sharing movies that are dedicated to that subject.

Tonight we begin our observances with the Troops of the Liberty Division.

Dereliction of Duty

Somebody besides his wife needs to slap the Dog Shit out of this guy. He is in no moral position to lecture others about Dereliction of Duty. Nonetheless he was elected and re-elected to the highest office in the land. As such he may speak to the graduating class of any of our military academies in any way he sees fit.

Zippy presents an example of Dereliction of Duty to the graduating class of the Coast Guard Academy.

More Protests

Yes. There aren’t enough Protests going on in this Country.

Now people who aren’t supposed to be in this Country are going to start their own Protests

The Communist Party continues to work overtime to destroy this Nation. It’s what they do. It’s what they will always do.

Another EOTWAWKI Update

The Boy Scouts of America have banned Water Gun Fights

I guess they need to more closely monitor how Scouts win their Video Gamer Badge as well.

Just wake up in the morning, look at the national news headlines and say to yourself “This is the dumbest Bullshit ever” and do it every single day because that is one of the few acceptable responses any sane person should have left for this kind of nonsense.

A Sunday Sermon

It’s another glorious Sunday in Revoworld. The everyday news typically speaks of nothing good. Usually it’s pure evil that greets you by way of the mainstream media every day. That is just one reason why on Sunday we present the Word of God here. It is also in the hope hat someone who is passing through might find something here that changes their life forever.

The doors t the Church are open, come on in.

The Saturday Night Special

ihf_2268_22684753

It has been at least Twenty Five Years since I watched the documentary that follows. Somewhere in my vast collection of unlabeled VHS tapes from the late 80s and early 90s I have this recorded. I am almost certain that I watched it on the A&E Channel. Back then A&E was the cutting edge of new cable TV super channels. There was no Discovery Channel nor a History Channel. A&E hosted a wide variety of historical documentaries back then, most of which they didn’t produce. They weren’t all that big yet. They were good at re-mastering old black and white documentaries and adding their own host to make the presentation to the audience. It was good stuff.

Friday Night at the Movies

rotor POSTER

Another Friday Night has finally arrived. We leave behind another week on the grind and it is expected that one would choose a celebratory departure. The evening meal often marks the kickoff to the weekend, especially if it is cooked on a Barbeque Grille. Anything tastes better when it is cooked over a Fire. It is generally understood this day and age that if you are lighting any kind of Fire on a Friday Night, it is celebratory in nature. As warm weather moves in the Barbeque Grille becomes more of a necessary part of life. Let us not forsake ourselves in this regard in the Months ahead.

I don’t know why all that just came upon me. Maybe it’s because I have been neglecting that part of my life over the past several Years. Right now as awareness of my condition comes over me I have to interrupt my writing to go empty out some charcoal, douse it with starter fluid and begin the weekend feasting.

The Real Revo honors B.B. King

The weekend has now officially hit the East Coast and it is not proper that we begin our weekend rituals without doing something special to acknowledge our loss of a uniquely American musical icon today, Mr. B.B. King. I know that tonight will be very special down on Beale Street in Memphis. Just a few years ago many Revoistas were gathered together in his Blues Club enjoying our company and beverages. A good bit of the video that follows was recorded there.

His voice is silenced but he left plenty of his work with us to enjoy.

Rest in Peace B.B. King…

Hmmm…

An outspoken advocate of higher safety standards within the Railroad Industry was the Engineer at the controls of the Amtrak that derailed in Philly.

Well isn’t that interesting?

I guess the media is working overtime to solve this grand mystery for us before the actual crash investigators do but I do find it interesting that the very technology that he advocated would have prevented say… a lunatic from deliberately taking a train through a sharp curve at 100 miles per hour.

Will Jacksonville, Florida be next?

I keep waiting for the Police Shooting that is going to give the opportunists in Jacksonville the chance to run their mouths and stir up some civil unrest. We haven’t had any of that since the 60s. A couple of Months ago Police shot and killed a 16 year old who was armed and fleeing from a stolen vehicle that he had just used to ram a Police vehicle. He was shot dead when he turned around to engage the Officers. An attempt was made to turn that into something that it wasn’t but it has failed.

This morning we got the story of a really bizarre Police Shooting and I predict that there will be some… undesirable ruckus rousing as a result.

We do have those in our community who think there is something to be gained by displaying their race based militancy.

I will be keeping an eye on this one.
