In times when we don't know where we are headed, it is well to consider where some have been. This from John Farnam's Quips, 31 Mar 09.

Dusty old helmet,rusty old gun
They sit in the corner and wait.
Two souvenirs of the Second World War
That have withstood the time and the hate.
Mute witness to a time of much trouble
Where "Kill-or-be-killed" was the law.
Were these implements used with high honor?
What was the glory they saw?
Many times I've wanted to ask them
And now that we're here all alone,
Relics of a long ago war,
Where has our freedom gone?
Freedom flies in out hearts like an Eagle.
Let it soar with the winds high above.
Among the spirits of soldiers now sleeping,
Guard it with care and with love.
I salute my old friends in the corner.
I agree with all they have said.
And if the Moment of Truth comes tomorrow
I'll be free or, by God, I'll be dead.

-Audie Murphy

I called my stockbroker today and asked him, "What are you buying" ?
His answer: “Canned goods and ammunition.”
Sounds right to me.

On the way in to work this morning, heard a radio interview with Hank Williams Jr.

"Every morning I do a mile and a half with two dogs, a big ole hickory stick, and a .38"

To me that's the ultimate way of saying I enjoy the freedom I have in this country, and I'm prepared to keep it that way.
