A Meaningless Oath

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE U.S. ARMY?

What does the oath taken by military members mean to them?

(Dec. 8, 2013) — Apparently there’s a lot of confusion about what the Constitution is there for in the first place, let alone why its lasted for more than 200 years.

Governments tend to always want more power, more money, and more control, which means, conversely, less power, less money, and less control the citizens have over their own lives. A strange phenomenon occurs when weak-minded individuals relate to a larger group. Gang members feel more powerful when associated with their group; police officers call those with a different job description “civilians,” as if they’re not; and some military officers refuse to remember the part about “protecting and defending” what they’re in the military in the first place: saving the Constitution for proceeding generations.

The Constitution is, in short, a guideline that insures that the government shall never become anything other than by and for the people. The Second Amendment is a safeguard that protects the citizens from an out-of-control runaway government that is neither “of the people” nor “for the people.” Weapons are the one tool the citizens have against a dishonest government, against traitors who value money and power more than honor and integrity.

We live in perilous times indeed, for we have been exposed to numerous philosophies that put the individual ahead of governments whose sole purpose for existence, it seems, is to control others. The Harvard Classics is the first step to a well-rounded education, where one learns that the most valued gift a parent can leave their offspring is the jewel of hope of a better future, where Freedom is the key to a successful and rewarding life, the opportunity to choose one’s path down the road that we call life.

Some of us were educated in American Civics, where we learned the power of the vote; had to recite the Preamble to the Constitution; the words to the Star Spangled Banner, and the Gettysburg Address; and had to play some musical instrument doing homage to The Marine Hymn, for instance.

We also learned what a traitor was and why they were shot, or sent to the USSR where they could rot the rest of their days away.

We have traitors among us now, walking the streets and collecting a government paycheck. The Joint Chiefs of Staff are made up of a gang of traitors, for they mocked an honorable man, a LTC doctor in the Army, to be railroaded in a kangaroo court-martial, Terry Lakin.

The latest clown the Army provides us with is someone who missed out on his civics class lectures, didn’t do his homework, or is just plain stupid; I don’t know. But what I do know is that someone has a screw loose and needs a little time off to read about the history of the Nazi Party and the Holocaust, and why his actions are not helping the cause of Freedom. I’m talking about LTC Robert Bateman, who either needs our sympathy for not getting with the program (for failing to comprehend the meaning of the Constitution and, therefore, Freedom) or something else, maybe a trip to reality and what his legacy will be in the continuing vigilance for Freedom.

    The suggestions made by LTC Robert Bateman could just have easily come from Adolf Hitler.

    From LTC Robert Bateman:

    I am adding the following “Gun Plank” to the Bateman-Pierce platform. Here are some suggestions:

    1. The only guns permitted will be the following:
    a. Smoothbore or Rifled muzzle-loading blackpowder muskets. No 7-11 in history has ever been held up with one of these.
    b. Double-barrel breech-loading shotguns. Hunting with these is valid.
    c. Bolt-action rifles with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds. Like I said, hunting is valid. But if you cannot bring down a defenseless deer in under five rounds, then you have no fking reason to be holding a killing tool in the first place.

    2. We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers. That is because I am willing to wait until you die, hopefully of natural causes. Guns, except for the three approved categories, cannot be inherited. When you die your weapons must be turned into the local police department, which will then destroy them. (Weapons of historical significance will be de-milled, but may be preserved.)

    3. Police departments are no longer allowed to sell or auction weapons used in crimes after the cases have been closed. (That will piss off some cops, since they really need this money. But you know what they need more? Less violence and death. By continuing the process of weapon recirculation, they are only making their jobs — or the jobs of some other cops — harder.)

    4. We will submit a new tax on ammunition. In the first two years it will be 400 percent of the current retail cost of that type of ammunition. (Exemptions for the ammo used by the approved weapons.) Thereafter it will increase by 20 percent per year.

    5. We will initiate a nationwide “buy-back” program, effective immediately, with the payouts coming from the DoD budget. This buy-back program will start purchasing weapons at 200 percent of their face value the first year, 150 percent the second year, 100 percent the third year. Thereafter there will be a 10 year pause, at which point the guns can be sold to the government at 10 percent of their value for the next 50 years.

    6. The major gun manufactures of the United States, less those who create weapons for the federal government and the armed forces, will be bought out by the United States of America, for our own damned good.

    Everything we see now that is contrary to American Spirit, Freedom, Liberty, Progress, Invention, Strength and Honor can be laid at the foot of Obama and the cast of fools that offer him cover and a fragment of unearned respect.
