It Ain't Right.....

I honestly thought there would be no blog post today.  You know I don’t post unless I have something to say that I think is worth sharing.  Plus I have posted something every day for over two weeks straight so maybe y’all just needed a break from reading my drivel.

So it was a normal morning here on the oil field gate outside Muenster, TX.  It was cool and quiet with little traffic in the hours before daylight.  Miss K was hopefully getting some good sleep in the quiet with no AC units running.  I was reading through my morning assortment of blogs and such and the TV was mumbling in the background.   In the back of my mind, I was going over what I need to do to the RV so we can survive another winter within the confines of the Old Girl.  Pretty normal stuff.

While I was running the traps,  I came across this:

As Wildfires Rage Across Texas, Feds Take Control and Scuttle Volunteer Firefighters

Wednesday, September 07, 2011 – by Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) As fires raged across central Texas for the past three days, local citizens sprang into action to protect their lives and property. Local churches opened their doors and began hosting refugees left homeless by the fires which have now destroyed more than 1,000 homes and 100,000 acres across the state in just the past week. Several branches of the YMCA also began hosting families with children, and a public school in Bastrop County opened its doors to serve as an emergency relief center.

Federal agencies seize control on Tuesday

Hundreds of firefighters from all the surrounding counties worked two days and nights in a heroic effort to contain the fires, but high winds Sunday night and all day Monday thwarted their efforts. So the call went out for more volunteer firefighters to join the effort from across the state.

Before they arrived, however, the federal government showed up and claimed it was in charge of the situation. “Agents with the federal National Interagency Fire Center, a coalition of federal agencies including the U.S. Forest Service, assumed command of firefighting efforts Tuesday afternoon,” reports The Gonzales Cannon. is now reporting that volunteer firefighters who had in some cases driven all night to reach Bastrop county were turned away by the feds, who claimed that since local officials never made a “formal request” for volunteers, the volunteers could not be “activated.”

So while Bastrop County burns from 40+ fires that are still raging, the federal government is actually telling volunteer firefighters to go home.

Here is the link to the full story.

Then there is this one about the govmint ‘helping’ create new jobs:

Job Killer in Chief
Wednesday, September 07, 2011 – by Peter Schiff

Many on Wall Street were stunned by the big fat zero put up by the August jobs report, the worst showing in 11 months. The data convinced many previously optimistic economists that the United States will slip back into recession. I believe that we have been in one giant recession all along that was only temporarily interrupted by trillions of dollars in useless and destructive deficit and stimulus spending. Unfortunately, the August numbers will increase the talk of government efforts to stimulate the economy.

But while President Obama prepares to unveil a new plan for the Federal Government to create jobs, evidence is rapidly piling up on how his Administration is actively destroying jobs with stunning efficiency. Recent examples of this trend are enough to make anyone with even a casual respect for America’s former economic prowess hang their head in disgust.

Read the full story here.

Granted The Daily Bell is no friend of government and you have to take into consideration their reporting usually favors the viewpoint  I also embrace but still yet……

So I was getting just a trifle steamed because things just ain’t right when you got this kinda crap going on.

Then the murmuring of the TV in the background gets my attention and THIS story plays on the local news:


DALLAS — It was an ordinary night, August 26, at the Exxon Tiger Mart at South Polk Street and Interstate 20 in Dallas.

C.J. Thomas, the store’s clerk, was behind the counter when a rush of customers came through the door at 10:12 p.m.

“There was more coming in than going out,” Thomas said. “Once they realized how many were in there, one of the students started throwing stuff and screamed out. Everything after that went crazy.”

Store surveillance cameras from different angles show bottles being thrown.

Seconds later, Thomas ran to the front door. He tried to close it, but he couldn’t hold back the crowd.

Some of them grabbed drinks, chips, and other items and began pushing their way out. Thomas said he tried to stop some people from stealing.

“In the process of them walking out, tried to stop a student with a lot of things in his hands and when I tried to do that, he shoved me out into the parking lot and swung at me,” Thomas said.

Thomas then says several men then pulled him to the ground and started kicking and punching him.

You can read the whole story here along with a 2 minute video and I urge you to look at the video.  You will be shocked and chagrined….  and scared.  There is a thin veneer that separates us, safe in our homes, from mobs rampaging through the streets.   It is called Rule of Law.

Rule of Law:   That individuals, persons and government shall submit to, obey and be regulated by law, and not arbitrary action by an individual or a group of individuals.

Most of us don’t need a cop at our elbow to nudge us to follow Rule Of Law. We just know what it is; it is ingrained in us to know right from wrong. But did you watch the video? Did you see how quickly the group of teenagers degenerated into a ransacking mob? [snaps fingers] Just that quick folks. Frankly, it scared the bejeezus outta me to how quickly things went south. Is this our future? Tell me it ain’t so.

Let me figure out just exactly how I want to say this.   The last thing I want to come across as is a beardy old anarchist.   I do not think our government should thrust themselves uninvited into our daily lives to the extent they interfere with what is sane and logical.   Their willingness to do just that seems to be accelerating.  I do not feel the government’s increased involvement is because they are concerned for the welfare of the average citizen like you and me.  Their intrusion into our daily lives is to gain control of our total lives from birth to death to better serve the Central Banks and Big Business.   95% of the world’s wealth is controlled by 1% of the people and those are the masters we serve. As long we are good little cubicle slaves and run that hamster wheel with zest,  all is good in the world.  Just look at the prosperity we enjoyed between 1983-2008.

But what happens when the status quo shifts as it has since 2008?  Even though the 1% are reaping record profits from all the good little hamsters, their control is slipping. People are unemployed with overpriced houses hanging like millstones around their necks,  people are hungry even though almost 46 million people are on foodstamps;  the Rule of Law is disintegrating and the unwashed masses are beginning to grumble.  The 1% will never allow that and their only recourse is to increase the control the government has over you and I.   That is what truly terrifies me.

    Hmm. I have a hard time criticizing this: “About 1,200 firefighters battled the blazes, including crews from as far away as California and Oregon. Five heavy tanker planes, some from the federal government, and three aircraft capable of scooping 1,500 gallons of lake water at a time also helped.”

    I guess how you think about this depends on where you get your information.

    A title like “Job Killer in Chief” tells me that what follows will be something between propaganda and lies. In fact, Andy, the “big fat zero” was the outcome of private sector job growth (something the GOP says it is for) that was exactly offset by public sector job loss (something the GOP says it is for). You could find this out for yourself if you would read the data instead of the propaganda:

    “Although the private sector added 17,000 jobs, an equal loss from the public sector leveled this number out.”

      Hi Joel,

      This post was written 3 days ago- well in advance of the President’s speech last evening. Just seems to me every time the government gets involved, the matter at hand gets overly complicated and less productive.

    I didn’t watch the president’s speech, nor were the quotes above from his speech.

    As for every time the government gets involved, I count the government role in the interstate highway system, the internet, supporting biomedical research, developing and distributing vaccines, assuring that every child has access to education through high school, maintaining public libraries and running police and fire departments all to be quite productive. YMMV. One’s appetite for complexity may also vary, of course, but as H.L Menken said: “For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.”

    I’m with you about whenever the government gets involved they pretty much screw things up. I’m not sure if it is dumb or crookedness. Most probably a fair share of both. Of the government, I only trust the military to not be totally crooked but I certainly don’t want a military government!!! What keeps me afloat is that in all recorded history shit happens but 40 – 50 or 100 years later it’s all different. I may die a pauper but my daughter may die a millionaire.
