In a bold discussion, Schlichter, a Colonel-turned-lawyer, vehemently refuted the left’s notion of “white privilege.” Carlson noted that Schlichter, in his Townhall piece, wrote, “What you call ‘privilege’ is just me being better than you.” Carlson asked what Schlichter had meant by that.
Schlichter enthusiastically clarified:
“Have you ever seen or heard anybody babbling about privilege that has any kind of track record of success? I didn’t become a partner in a law firm because my great-great-great grandfather came over from Bavaria, okay? I started out mopping-out stalls at McDonalds. On the military side, I didn’t become a full-Colonel because somebody liked my skin tone. I started out as a Private 27 years ago this Tuesday.All of us have worked; all of us have achieved something and that’s how we measure character; that’s how we measure what the value of a person is. Not some arbitrary category imposed by some ponytailed grad students who’ve taken too many gender studies seminars.”
We ALL need to be this fearless when it comes to standing up to what we believe in. The Left only wins when it is able to shame/intimidate people into keeping quiet for fear of being called racist, misogynist, or any other -ist out there. Ignore them. They're never going to give us any credit, so ignore them and say/do what needs to be said/done.
"If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”

***The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Nothing gives me chills quicker than hearing a large choir or Armed Forces band and choir singing this majestic song. Here is a history of the song by Mark Steyn.
As He died to make men holy
Let us die to make men free
While God is marching on.
***Guilt about consumption. Great article.
During a recent visit to California, I attended a party at a professor's house with a Slovene friend, a heavy smoker. Late in the evening, my friend became desperate and politely asked the host if he could step out on the veranda for a smoke. When the host (no less politely) said no, my friend suggested that he step out on to the street, and even this was rejected by the host, who claimed such a public display of smoking might hurt his status with his neighbours … But what really surprised me was that, after dinner, the host offered us (not so) soft drugs, and this kind of smoking went on without any problem – as if drugs are not more dangerous than cigarettes.
Unbelievable. Such is the mind of a liberal, but the article goes further than that. They have made everyone feel so guilty about anything they deem harmful, that many do in private what should be perfectly acceptable in public, and once was. These are the same people who say we should "live and let live." That only applies if we're living as they think we should, and don't you DARE criticize anything THEY'RE doing. That would make you intolerant.
Remember those to whom we owe our freedom. Never forget.
***Yes, he said it. Obama to troops in Afghanistan: "Caring for vets is sacred obligation." Where to start...?
***Inept, incompetent, sickening..."White House accidentally exposes Afghanistan CIA chief's identity." Those troops Obama was speaking to in Afghanistan should have took him into custody and locked him up.
***God Bless Us
O Lord, our refuge and strength
When it's 'in God we trust'
The foe has struck your firstborn
With a great infamous thrust
Like history repeated
A Trojan Horse await
To massacre the blameless
A 'Nine-eleven' fate
They've dared defy an army
That does proclaim you Lord
Deliver US from their hand
Whet your glittering sword
Our Father who's in heaven
Shield US, your battle axe
Guard these in Thy replevin
Then Babylon do tax
Give US righteous victory
In Thy name, Lord of host
So that all the earth may know
'In God we trust' foremost
O Lord, our Rock and fortress
'Land of the Free' protect
Keep US strong 'til Shiloh come
Then on to Him collect
He maketh the wars to cease
Unto the end of earth
Breaketh bow, cut sunder spear
To chariots flame's birth
'Be calm, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.'*
The Lord of hosts is with US
Our refuge we proclaim
Bless US in our endeavor
We ask in Jesus name
“I regard it (the Constitution) as the work of the purest patriots and wisest statesman that ever existed, aided by the smiles of a benign Providence; it almost appears a "Divine interposition in our behalf... the hand that destroys our Constitution rends our Union asunder forever.”
