Revolution 2016: Take Back America

This “entertaining” read is based on a satirical plot where Democrats win control of the House and Senate in 2014 and pass sweeping gun control and greenhouse gas legislation. Unintended consequences soon follow.

Events are similar to what is occurring in 2019. Anarchists step out of the shadows. Constitutionalists and gun owners rally to defend their Second and Fourth Amendment rights. States begin to defy the federal government and clashes occur. The military must choose between obeying their Commander in Chief’s illegal orders or supporting their oath to defend the Constitution against domestic and foreign enemies. Resistance begins in various locations and then spreads across the nation. Patriots rally to take back America.

Could this happen in post 2020?

My thoughts …

First, let me again point out that this is a satirical work, and as Lee Boyland states himself, it is clearly over the top. It is also a great read!

The author spins current events into a prophetic tale that can’t help but make you say, “hmmmmm.” This book has it all … political correctness run amok, destroying the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendments, and crooked Teflon-coated “deep state” politicians that put their agenda over the welfare of the country.

The narrative reads well, and I finished it in a couple of days. I did not want to put it down, but as you know, life sometimes gets in the way. I had to take a few breaks from reading.

The story does have a potentially happy ending but takes the reader through a scenario that I hope America will not have to endure. Sometimes I do wonder, as I look at the devolution of our society today if our America will continue to exist for future generations or will we simply devolve into another failed nanny state.

Many American’s will enjoy this excellent read. I also found it a bit reassuring to see that others view the current political situation in this country like I sometimes do. I give this book 5 Stars.

Sticks and Stones

offended

It’s official!  According to Dennis Miller, a conservative leaning American stand-up comedian and political commentator, “Names now hurt us more than sticks and stones.”  It’s the dawn of a new age, the age of the oh-so-easily offended!

These mindless PC zombies are an extremely aggravating breed with very little useful purpose on the planet that I can see … I mean other than destroying our country and our culture. They are mindless drones who only know one thing … what offends them.  A prime example are to two reporters who heckled Donald Trump and Jeb Bush for using the term “anchor babies” on separate occasions.  It seems neither reporter could come up with a viable alternative for the term, but both were so obviously offended by the term that I thought I could even hear their bones breaking!

It is odd that these folks are so often the ones lecturing to us about the utmost importance of “freedom of speech,” but yet they’re the first to shoot down the opinions of anyone brave enough to express a point of view that isn’t identical to theirs.  It’s the height of hypocrisy to yell stridently about freedom of speech and then ruthlessly attack anyone who say anything you disagree with or don’t want to hear.

I think these folks need a  little mental toughness instilled in them.  Perhaps we should capture them, tie them to a chair and force them to repeatedly watch Grand Torino until they see the error of their ways.  Just saying!

We have devolved into the most whiniest, most thin-skinned, easily-offended society in history!  Americans have become a nation of cry-babies!  We have developed a unlimited capacity for being offended and, it has become our national pastime.
