I was talking to a buddy and marveling at how much of a tectonic shift there has been in party politics 20 years.

For example:

Me, a Conservative in 2001, watching 9/11: “I’m a patriot. I’m Army ROTC, I want to do my duty and serve my country and defend America and the principles of liberty.”

Me, a Conservative in 2021, talking to my son when he says he “wants to be a warrior” when he grows up: “If you are a patriot, don’t join the military.  You will spend half your time being shown PowerPoints on anti-American Marxist propaganda just to be sent to some far away shit-hole country for a boy raping goat herder to blow your legs off in an endless war, just so some fuck-ass boomer general from an Ivy League can guarantee himself a 7-figure salary at Raytheon when he retires.  You’re too important for me to have someone else throw your life away for that.”

My principles didn’t change.

The institutions have been so corrupted that as a Conservative I can’t support them anymore.

And the ultimate evidence that Left corrupted them is just how much they defend the institutions.

  1. I don’t know if any of you have seen this yet – about the cop who killed Ashli Babbitt –
    The officer who apparently murdered Ashli Babbit is Lt. Michael L. Byrd, the African American who had previously left his 40 caliber Glock 22 in a bathroom, where it was discovered by another officer and returned to him. Ashli Babbit was evidently killed by a .40 caliber round. Full story and recording in which Byrd was named, found at following link.

  2. Good for you sir.
    I used There owns words AND Docuiments to enlighten my kids.
    It worked.
    Thank god

  3. At least teach him how to survive in this Brave New World, he’s going to need that knowledge.

  4. My son went to Iraq in 2006 and 2007 with Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children (US Marine Corps). He learned things that he did not want to know. He went in thinking that we could fix the Middle East, now he is convinced that nobody can fix the Middle East. He lost several buddies there, one friend lives at the burn unit in San Antonio for the rest of his life.

    He is 38 now and knows that as a non-commissioned officer and a two tour combat veteran, he can be called up until he is 45. Or if things are horrible, 50 ? 60 ?.

  5. Was it Reagan that said he did not leave the Democrat party, the Democrat party left him?

    Yep. Same thing here.

    The institutions are meaningless. The standards they live up to are what really counts. And, when an institution decides their standard are to change to please a small minority of whiners, well, that institution is the problem then.

  6. You remember the twin towers had a gold vault at the bottom? You remember the plot of the movie Die Hard? I heard a great conspiracy theory that 9/11 was a real-life Die Hard. Did you ever hear about anyone salvaging the gold after they cleaned up the site?

  7. I don’t think I need to repeat myself in terms of where I think the military is going to be, what it will be actually used for and what our population will be in next four years.
