The Fourth of July is rapidly approaching! Some people get puzzled about the actual Thirteen Original Colonies of America. They know for instance that Daniel Morgan’s Kentucky Rifles were one of the most storied units of the war and saw action from Canada to the American South. Yet, Kentucky is not listed as one of the original colonies.
Similarly they know that Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys were a Vermont unit and that Chillicothe in Ohio was the site of the REAL last battle of the war, yet neither Vermont nor Ohio were original colonies, either. The reason for all that is this: Continue reading
I can put whatever I want behind me! But YOU DAMN PEASANTS can’t! I miss the days when you citizens knew your place and didn’t talk back to your betters!
Every revelation that comes out about Benghazi makes it clear that Hillary “Bugsy” Clinton and Barack “Tony Ears” Obama lied about a video causing the 2012 Benghazi attack just to spare Barack looking like a jackass over his ludicrous claims that Al Qaeda was “on the ropes.”
Despite all that, Hillary tries to pretend it’s all nothing and that she can just “move on” now. I guess she feels that anyone stupid enough to believe ANYTHING she and/or Barack say isn’t worth caring about. So the Four Dead in Benghazi are to be thrown down the Memory Hole but the Four Dead in Ohio are to be rehashed forever.
A nonexistent reporter asked Hillary if the untold millions of working class white Americans who had absolutely NOTHING to do with the slave trade that her Democratic Party championed can finally “Move On” from it she replied “NEVER! I am one of the Ruling Class! WE are allowed to “move on” from our many,many scandals, crimes and misdeeds, but YOU PEASANTS are to be browbeaten into political submission over things you had nothing to do with FOREVER!”
When that same reporter followed up by pointing out that that didn’t sound at all like that “fairness” that the Democrats forever claim to be about the bloated rich pig replied “That’s different. It’s politically useful for the Party to continue pushing the ridiculous notions of White Privilege and Collective Guilt.”

Here at Balladeer’s Blog regular readers know the drill: I’m far from a conservative but like so many of us I stopped considering myself a Liberal when I saw how American Liberals adopted their “Islam: Right or Wrong” attitude years ago.
As a break from what I have to say about it here is a video by another former Liberal disgusted with the Democrats’ gutless hypocrisy. They’ll blame videos, they’ll blame guns, but will NEVER blame the blood-soaked religion that is the common factor in these terrorist attacks. Continue reading
