My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

STANDOFF AT “NEVADA OK CORRAL”

Well folks, “Spring has sprung, fall has fell, summer is on the way and it will be hot as hell”.  Just wanted to show my poetic side for all that scream about my being to harsh.  Ain’t that pretty?  Soft and sensitive too!!!

Speaking of poetic, how ’bout this “Nevada standoff” between the BLM and Cliven Bundy and all his supporters.  At a time when government intervention in our lives is at an all time high, along comes another government department to act as though they and what they decide is supreme.  “COMMON SENSE” tells us that there are always “two sides” to every story.  And then there is my side, so listen up my friends.  Everyone was wrong to some extent in this mess.  The BLM was wrong in rounding up his cattle and he was wrong for not following the “law of the land”.  Let me explain before you start yelling at me.   The BLM just a short few years ago wanted and did kill a bunch of the tortoises that it had removed from the land and is now trying to use that as an excuse to remove the cattle.  Mr. Bundy, although I side more with him than the government, was wrong in not abiding by the law after several court cases did not find in his “favor”.  The BLM could have found other ways to deal with this problem rather than gathering the cattle and bringing in armed guards.  They, the BLM, caused this to “spiral out of control” by bringing in armed outsiders into something that could have been dealt with on a much more “one-on-one” or “man-to-man” approach.  They could have sent him a notice to turn himself in; and if he did not, then have the sheriff pick him up on one of his visits to town. It is never good to confront U.S. citizens with arms unless a crime has been or is in the process of being committed.  Now, Mr. Bundy needs to realize that he may not agree with the ruling of the courts, but as a law-abiding citizen he must comply.  He certainly has the right to work to change the law. But just as we have always said when it comes to the immigration laws, the laws must be applied and we all have a responsibility to adhere to the law.  If, we the people, expect the illegals to respect the rule of our immigration laws, then we must set the example by respecting all of our laws.  Work like hell to change anything you do not agree with, but have respect for the law itself.

Now having said all that, let me say that I have always told anyone that will listen that I will protect what is mine to the end.  I have much of the same blood running thru my veins as does Mr. Bundy.  Mess with me or my family and I will, as the Bible instructs, “strike out with a mighty right hand and a sword”.  This does not mean I will argue with you. It means, do not mess with my family or what is mine, as I will hurt you.  No threat just fact.  I think all should react this way. So, I go out of my way to avoid messing with others.  A man must protect his family and his castle, period!!!  After all, it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so.

The liberals always say “can’t we all just get along”.  That is code speak for “if you do as we would like, or let us have our way, then and only then can we get along.  Let us change the rules as we go so as we always feel we are right.  Let us kill the innocent, promote the perverted and by all means never and we do mean never use “HIS” name or worship “GOD ALMIGHTY” in the public square.  No, no, never mention “HIS” name but let us parade down main street celebrating with such things as “the queers pride” parade.  What nonsense!!!

Now, here is the tricky part in that I do agree with the liberals when they say, “can’t we all just get along,” and I will abide by that; but, if you mess with me, it will be “just after I kick your ass” that we will then be in the mood to “get along”.  Now, to me, this makes perfect “COMMON SENSE”!
