Happy New Year
|I miss seeing Old Glory flying high in the wind...|
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1:1Goodbye 2014, hello 2015.
[I]t is readily apparent to every well-informed observer that War is preparing to mount his steed, and he will soon be once more riding that terrible red horse over the nations of men.Death, too, has mounted his pale horse and is riding across the land. His scythes have cut deeply wherever they have landed- just ask those who lost loved ones on Malaysian Airlines flights MH17 and MH370, and AirAsia flight QZ8501.
All we need is for Conquest and Famine to mount their white and black horses respectively, and for the Whore of Babylon to ap- uh, wait, she's already here, never mind.
Yet even in the darkness, there is light. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
For this was also the year in which we- a loosely held, deeply territorial, highly individualistic, largely leaderless, perhaps almost anarchic, and congenitally anti-authoritarian confederation of social misfits, grumpy old farts, family men, pick-up artists, gamers, the odd woman or ten, cranky Millennials, and near-nutbags (like me)- proved that we can no longer be easily ignored.
|For anyone but an SJW, this is really easy|
That we will stand and FIGHT for what we believe in.
And that we are not afraid of them- but they had damn well better be afraid of us.
We don't agree on the little details, and we shouldn't be expected to. But we agree on the major points, and that is enough.
But it will not stand forever.
