Turkey Day Matinee – Alice’s Restaurant

This is considered to be an all-time classic Thanksgiving movie even though some themes may seem un’Murican and downright Cawmmunist.

I haven’t seen it in years.

Ahhh… such were the days when Hippies were harmless…

Arthur The Dog Is Thankful

Arthur, The Stray Dog who joined a Swedish race team in Ecuador and refused to be left behind.

“Meet Arthur the stray dog who followed an extreme sports team during a grueling 430-mile race through the Amazon rainforest and refused to leave their side until the finish.

-Team Peak Performance were sat down for a meal before a 20 mile trek in Ecuador when they saw a stray dog.

-Swedish group were taking part in the Adventure Racing World Championship through the Amazon rain forest.

-Mikael Lindnord fed the animal a meatball before the team carried on but the scruffy creature followed them.

-They tried to get rid of him, primarily for his own safety, but he refused to go so he became a fifth team member.

-The group of four decided to name him Arthur and have now adopted him and flown him back to Sweden.

-Lindnord said: ‘I came to Ecuador to win the World Championship. Instead, I got a new friend'”

Give Thanks

I almost published the latest ramblings of Louis Farrakhan here today.

I just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t even watch it all the way through because… I just didn’t care to. Therefore I decided that here and now isn’t the place or time for it. I have decided instead that I will drop the Darkness and bring the Light as a way of showing my Thanksgiving to my Creator for all he does for me and others every day.

Give Thanks – A message by Pastor Josh Reavis of North Jacksonville Baptist Church.

Death Race 2014

No one died, but am I the only one who thinks this is funny? I’m a sick individual, but I can’t help but laugh. This was a protest in Minneapolis protesting some grand jury decision not to indict a cop who protected his own life. How dare he!

Remember back several months ago, we heard from the MSM about the scandal of what they were calling “Bridge-gate”? They claimed that Chris Christie in New Jersey closed some bridge for some reason, that prohibited service vehicles, such as ambulances, police cars, taco wagons, from protecting and serving people. Heck, people even died apparently on their way to the hospital because the shortcut was deliberately closed by Christie. The leftist MSM and bloggers reminded us everyday for several months about the horrors of closing down the bridge for a few hours.

Are these same leftists complaining about the streets being shutdown by protestors, who are no doubt disrupting ambulance and other service vehicles from doing their jobs? How many people have died on their way to the hospital because they had to be detoured around the protestors?

This actually exists

No, it has nothing to do with Ferguson, Missouri. It has to do with Thanksgiving. If there was a free copy of it available it would be featured here, believe that. Even still, a tiny dose will lift the spirits.

There are scenes and language that some will find disturbing…

I will own this one day.

I’m not sure how the news of the day is more topic worthy than this masterpiece of a film.

FBI Wants 20mm Magazine-Fed Rifles With Suppressors

This five year-old request is for a single-source, non-competitive purchase of two rifles including suppressors and extra magazines from Anzio Ironworks.

They list the retail price per gun as $11,900.

20-mm

I wonder why the FBI wants these?

The Hypocrite in Chief speaks..

I swear.. We must be living in an ongoing Onion piece.. There is simply no other way things like this can KEEP happening..

From the Presidents remarks last night…

“First and foremost, we are a nation built on the rule of law. And so we need to accept that this decision was the grand jury’s to make.”

Seriously? He really went there? A nation of laws.. We need to respect the courts.. Are you F-Ing kidding me?!?! From this guy?

I also enjoyed his remarks about the violence that was ongoing in the split screen while he was speaking..

“There is inevitably going to be some negative reaction, and it will make for good TV.”

Peoples lives.. Their businesses that they worked tirelessly and sacrificed for.. Being looted.. burned to the ground.. The take away.. It’s good TV dontcha know….

Thanksgiving Eve Regulatory “News” Dump

This gives new meaning to the phrase Friday News Dump. This lawless, deceitful, piece of crap has an agenda and he’s gonna do everything he can to make sure you don’t ever hear about it. This is why we have to reign in the federal government. The 4th branch (Regulatory) gives entirely too much power to the autocrats, in violation of the intent of our constitution.

[…]The federal Unified Agenda is the Obama administration’s regulatory road map, and it lays out thousands of regulations being finalized in the coming months. Under President Barack Obama, there has been a tradition of releasing the agenda late on Friday — and right before a major holiday[…]

The White House’s regulatory agenda for spring 2014 was released on the eve of the Memorial Day weekend, when millions of people set out on weekend getaways or family vacations.

“It’s unfortunate because it’s an update on protections for Americans of all stripes,” Shudtz told the Hill. “It lays out the administration’s plan and it deserves more attention.”

But the White House may have a good reason to do so because its Unified Agenda for fall 2014 includes some 3,415 regulations– more than the last regulatory agenda, and one that includes 189 rules that cost more than $100 million.

A Real Revo Hit List

I wanted to write a brief thank you to my friend. The man you know as RD Walker is stepping down to regroup and to focus on business matters which demand his attention. I’ve been considering, for months now, how best to honor his service to us, his loyal readers. I figure that rolling out a hit list (of his contributions) is the way to go.

I’ll try not to gild the lily any more than I must. This post is sticky and will stay that way for a few hours. My apologies to the other writers.

This video is what brought me to this site. Prior to it, I was writing on my own blog and commenting on a few others. Needless to say, I found a home here.

As time went on, Mr. Walker wrote many fascinating articles on just about every topic imaginable. He argued every point imaginable. Though, we rarely disagree these days, I have disagreed and argued with him in private and public. He has a way of dealing with topics and distilling their points into easily digestible bits of intellectual nourishment.

I have changed a couple of my views based upon the logical reasoning he uses to distill his subject matter. This site helped lead me to faith in Jesus Christ. I am a poor example of Christ’s love, but I’m a work in progress. With this site, I have shared hope and heartbreak, triumph & tragedy. I have made many true, life-long, real-world friends from my association with this site and RD Walker. For that, I am eternally grateful.

Below you will find a few of my favorite articles from RD, with snippets included:

Mr Spock, Doubting Thomas, And Me

I totally understand Thomas. Heck, I am doubting Thomas. As you know, I am the resident Revo skeptic. I doubt every conspiracy theory and demand we use the logic of Occum’s Razor on every event in which there is any doubt as to the cause. I won’t suffer trutherism, birtherism, Trigerism, Grassy Knollism or any other conspiracy theory in which the facts don’t add up to the conclusion. I demand facts first and conclusions second. Revoistas know that if you attempt to reverse the order – conclusions first, facts second – you are likely to get a flaming beat down from RD. I demand evidence and geometric logic…almost always. In one area of thought, however, I have reversed myself and I now arrive at the conclusion first.

I believe that Christ suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again in fulfilment of the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end. That is the conclusion I have arrived at and no evidence can undermine it; no evidence is needed to support it.

Conservative Tolerance, Liberal Hate

I believe that since conservatives see human nature as basically selfish, they expect to see that selfishness in all people. We look out for our self-interest and we expect other people to do the same. My answers to my Swiss friend’s questions again and again included the caveat, “…as long as they leave me and my family alone.” Since I expect to live my life in the manner I choose without interference, I expect other people to want to do the same. Therefore I don’t feel it any of my business to interfere with the activities of homosexuals, Satanists, Islamists or anybody else. Because I want to be left alone to pursue my self interest, it is easy for me to respect their desire to do the same. Sure they are being selfish but all people are, including me. I have no problem with what they do, just as long as they give me the same respect and space as I give them.

Liberals, on the other hand, don’t see human nature as selfish or of any any other constant. They see human nature as a blank slate waiting to be written on by society and institutions. They imagine their own nature to be that way and believe that their character and nature are progressive. They believe they have made progress to improve their nature and so, therefore, should everyone else. They believe that people who have not made the progress in character development that they have made should be encouraged, educated, prodded and cajoled into doing so. After all, why wouldn’t everyone want to advance to a higher, better more enlightened human condition? The problem for liberals is that some people neither want to “progress” or believe it is even possible to “progress”. These stubborn people are conservatives.

The Most Terrifying Words In The English Language

Therein lies what Thomas Sowell calls a “Conflict of Visions”. Liberals believe people are malleable and can become anything that institutions mold them into. From this we see the hard left slogans like “A New Communist Man” or “The Great Leap Forward”. Conservatives see human nature as unchanging and, essentially, selfish. Conservatives believe that no amount of social engineering will ever create a new human condition. The veneer of civilization is thin. For conservatives, the best social order is one in which humans interact and trade with each other to serve their own selfish needs and, therefore, help all. Adam Smith captured this concept perfectly when he wrote, “It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love.” This is the essence of conservatism.

The Left Terrifies Me

They flat out scare the hell out of me. Leftists actually believe that if we just put the right people in charge of an autocratic centralized bureaucracy, we can fix all that is wrong with the world. Leftists have no faith in the market because they have no faith in the billions of economic decisions of citizens that define the market. The market is the aggregation of human nature and human behavior. The market is at the core of the human condition and it is the sum of human economic interaction. It is virtually omnipresent and it is the totality of humanity working cooperatively to create wealth, comfort and ease. Since the market is synonymous with aggregate human nature, it is always present. It was present in Stalin’s USSR and in Mao’s China. It can be suppressed, but it can never be eliminated.

On The Public Funding Of Lighthouses.

In the comments section, commentator “Marber” wrote the following.

There is much in our nation that is socialistic, from the hiring and paying citizens for policing, firefighting, operating city buses and trains, to the federal government paying members of the armed forces and the useless congress that takes and takes from the people and then takes some more.

This gave me reason to think about the way in which economists define different types of goods. One way in which goods are defined is whether they are “rivalrous” or not. If a good is rivalrous, it means it is a zero sum product. It can be used up and, if you are using it, I can’t. An apple is a rivalrous good. If you eat it, I can’t and when it is gone, it is gone. Your car is a rivalrous good. Your house, your computer, your clothing and most consumer goods are rivalrous goods[…]

Public funding of military protection, law enforcement and lighthouses is essentially redistributive but, since there is really no other way to provide them, the unfairness can be excused. There is no excuse for the massive redistribution of wealth that will be Obamacare. The reason for its existence is that it fits the socialist vision of this president.

Breaking Windows Is Not Stimulating

The stimulus package won’t stimulate the economy because it won’t create real demand. It will create artificial demand where none would naturally exist and it will draw resources from areas of real demand to pay for it. A allegory that helps us understand what is meant by this is the “Broken Window Fallacy” by Frédéric Bastiat in his 1850 essay Ce qu’on voit et ce qu’on ne voit pas (That Which Is Seen and That Which Is Unseen).

Preppers Vindicated

May 6th, 0634: It would seem there is something going on in New York this morning.

Several hundred people fell ill near Times Square early this morning in what authorities are calling a possible terrorist attack. Several dozen became ill after visiting a coffee shop and a bakery. Authorities are not releasing details but a report from an unnamed source at Bellevue Hospital indicates there have been several deaths.

Clearly, something is up. This is worth keeping an eye on.

May 6th, 0844: They are now reporting that whatever is making people sick in New York is spreading.

Thousands of people in midtown New York have fallen ill due to what authorities are now calling a terrorist attack. Police are blocking off whole blocks and people are being told to stay in their homes and businesses with doors and windows closed.

This is serious folks.

As you can see from above and to the right, RD Walker likes to talk… and I personally thank God that he does. He ain’t perfect and he ain’t always right, but he is a genius. He is a dedicated father, husband, leader and servant of the country he loves. He is a brilliant, hard-working internet addict. He has my respect, my eternal gratitude, and my totally-not-gay love. :)

I wish you the best, my brother. May God bless you in all of your endeavors. We’ll see you when we see you.

A Sunday Morning Sermon – Focus on Thanksgiving

Over the past two Sunday mornings I’ve shared sermons by Pastor “Hollerin’ Herb” Reavis of North Jacksonville Baptist Church. Pastor Herb has a method of communication that many find to be unique. In honor of our upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, this morning I am presenting a sermon by his Son. Josh Reavis is also a gifted communicator, though his style of delivery is much different than that of his Father.

Every day is a day of Thanksgiving for me but I truly immerse myself in it on the day we set aside as a Nation to observe all the things we are thankful for. It is a day of happiness. It is a day to be enjoyed. It is a day to rejoice.

The Saturday Night Special – JFK… The final Hours

I stood there on the 6th Floor of the Texas School Book Depository a little over a week ago, looking through the Plexiglas barrier to the Snipers Nest in the corner, looking just as it did when Lee Harvey Oswald left that space. I looked out the window on to the street below. I looked down at the video monitor that plays the computer generated imagery of the Presidential Motorcade and what it looked like from the target angle occupied by a rabble rousing Communist Punk with a Twelve Dollar and Sixty Eight Cent mail order Italian rifle fitted with a Japanese scope. The anger that I felt at that moment had been building since I got to the Sixth Floor. How in the Hell does a Punk like Lee Harvey Oswald put himself at the right place at the right time to take a shot at our President?

It was an easy shot, even for a Marine who made marksmanship qualification by only two points. Many say that the rifle used was as inaccurate a rifle as could be found. There are many things about the assassination of President Kennedy that may never be known but Dealey Plaza was as near perfect a Killing Zone as there could be. People in an opened top vehicle moving at Five Miles per Hour, accelerating to a big Eleven Miles per Hour would be easily engaged by a Sniper in the corner window of the Sixth Floor of the Depository.

Many will say that the Kennedy family is essentially an organized crime syndicate. The Kennedys had their enemies. President Kennedy even displayed lack of character on a number of occasions. He and those around him did save the World from Nuclear War though. He inspired an aggressive exploration of Outer Space. He authorized the robust expansion of U.S. Army Special Forces. He made strategic contributions to the ability of the United States to win the Cold War without mass nuclear annihilation. In spite of his personal failures, in spite of his politics he was a President who had the Country’s best interest at heart.

He also inspired young people to be their best, to reach for the Stars without forgetting to lend a hand to those in need.

He was our President and he respected the Office to which he was elected.

As I looked down on Dealey Plaza I was angry and I was sad. When we fail to properly deal with our Enemies, they will eventually deal with us. The very same element that Lee Harvey Oswald belonged to is, right now as you read this, preparing to engage in acts of imminent violent Revolution as they have all throughout their History. They will be doing it in our Streets again this time. Had they been properly dealt with in the aftermath of the Kennedy Assassination, our world would be a much better place today. What is it about them that we fail to understand after all this time?

Friday Night at the Movies – Walking Tall

imagesFOKJMY0B (2)

It’s a beautiful Friday Night before Thanksgiving Week from sea to shining sea and you have found yourself in the right place at the right time to do some proper relaxation. Redneck Awareness Month has been a wide open, pedal to the metal, howlin’ at the Moon adventure for me. This has been my most active Redneck Awareness Month in many Years but my most enjoyable one in many more years. I hope it has been the same for you.

My trip to the Lone Star State has stirred the bowels of my inner Redneck in such a way that I haven’t previously known. As such I think I should briefly share these things. After all, this is Redneck Awareness Month and there are certain things that Rednecks should be aware of when it comes to the Lone Star State.

I’ll say no more until you have an open beverage in your hand because by the time you are finished reading my very brief remarks you will have become thirsty.

“Pratt Says Threatening Politicians Is ‘What The Second Amendment Is All About'”

Alan Colmes, the tyrant’s friend, says, “Noooo!”.

larry_pratt_a

Alan Colmes invited Gun Owners of America’s executive director, Larry Pratt, on his program yesterday and asked the gun lobbyist about some of his more incendiary comments, including his assertion that elected officials should have a “healthy fear” of being shot and his warnings that President Obama might start a race war.
When Colmes asked him about his comments on threatening elected officials, Pratt responded, “Sure, that’s what the Second Amendment is all about.”

“Otherwise I’m not quite sure how we restrain them,” he said, citing the armed standoff at the Bundy ranch as an example of gun owners stopping the government from “imposing their will tyrannically.”

If I were an illegal immigrant tonight…

If I were an illegal immigrant, I would think twice about exposing myself by applying for Obama’s apply for ‘deferred action’ amnesty. I would recall that it is a temporary amnesty and that Obama won’t be president forever. Signing up for amnesty today may be tantamount to signing up to be deported later.

I’d keep that in mind and think really hard about accepting any offers from a serial liar. I’d be very careful.
