At Old State Saloon, we have our next quarterly AR-15 giveaway scheduled for our November 21st, 2023 trivia night, entitled “Conspiracy Theory Trivia II”. As owner of our small, family-owned business, without a doubt it’ll be another round of verbal and written abuse from a minority group of mental neanderthals who clearly neither understand the second amendment of our constitution, nor its critical importance. They’ll call me a bigot, racist, “Proud Boy,” extremist, and other vulgarities. They’ll publicly write wishes for our business to fail. They’ll promise never to be a customer and will warn others to stay away. Some bands have canceled their music gigs at our saloon and pressured others to follow suit. Perhaps we’ll even see some protesters. And, instead of being thankful this season for heavily armed countrymen that can (and maybe soon will have to) defend what’s left of the USA from invasion on our soil against our foreign and domestic enemies, these leftists succumb to same old small idea messaging, devoid of data and lacking sense and sensibility about where we’ve been as a country and the dangerous road ahead.
The small idea aforementioned is that guns kill people so more gun regulation is needed. It’s an ignorant concept hailed in Hollywood, peddled in Paris, and disseminated in D.C. meant to distract us from the actual and consequential reasons our founding fathers included the 2nd Amendment in our Constitution. The small idea places blame on a piece of metal for causing death instead of truly grasping the state of our Union and just how imminent our painful destruction may be. Ignoring the warnings of history, we’ve become of nation of many cowards and shirkers who’ve had their common sense culled by “enlightened” entertainers and possessed politicians who sold their souls to the highest bidder years ago becoming obedient of the evil, whip-wielding tyrant above them on the pharisaical food chain. The evil plan to control the world systems of data farming, press, laws, medicine, education, food production and distribution, entertainment, and banking is spreading like a pandemic (a real one) and has been for decades. Meanwhile, we’ve sought comfortability over correction, delight over discipline, and feelings over facts.
Our automatic and willful acceptance of pseudo-science has left us in a clown world where we gladly purchase and consume poisoned food and chemicals that get us sicker by the day and dependent on a pharmacy system that keeps us ailing in perpetuity. Lost in an ever-deepening death spiral of toxicity, we weakly return like an abused ex-girlfriend to her drug dealer boyfriend as we beg for more of the same. More pain. More dependency. Instead of embracing our own observations about our physical world with our God given intelligence, and instead of cherishing simple and local solutions for health and living an impactful life, we give in to the tyranny of taxation and the slavery of our own contemptuous cesspit of voluntary reliance on the same set of systems created to slowly kill us, deceive us about our very cosmology, and most importantly separate us, at any cost, from our spiritual relationship with our Creator, the God of the Bible.
Our country’s minds and bodies are weak. It’s been planned for a century. We are vulnerable, ready to be taken over and there is really only one hope: God. If God decides to protect the USA in His own way, we won’t need any guns. But if he decides to empower us to protect ourselves, we will. If and when that time comes, when there is blood spilled and real death on our own soil, leftists will be instantly cured of their insatiable desire to disarm the very men and women brave enough to take up an AR-15 and protect the sheep from the wolves’ slaughter.
On November 21st, OSS will be full of those men and women… my friends, family, and soon-to-be friends who are willing to take up arms to defend our country and protect all our compatriots, liberals included. Unlike the thankless losers of our current worldly society, on Tuesday of Thanksgiving week we’ll meet together, sing the national anthem, say a prayer and engage in a fun night of trivia together, celebrating what we know USA can be, a country where a revival is underway and a country that will hopefully soon tear down its idols and get back to recognizing and living as though we know the truth: Jesus Christ is on the throne, the King of all kings. Happy Thanksgiving. Merry Christmas. We’ll see you at Old State Saloon!
