Dear LionelMedia subscriber, patriot, loyalist and friend of truth:
This weekend Mrs. L tooled about Philly in the hope of a history fix. And we got it. A freedom spike. Tyranny vaccine. Double-dose. It’s Constitution ground zero and hands down it beats DC and Boston. It’s where the Constitution and Declaration were hatched. The National Constitution Center is the place to go. It’s everything. The sine qua non. The gravamen. The essence. It’s it. It’s America and what Americans are. Everything else is dreck and surplusage.
And I say that because I almost upchucked a few times when I happened to catch any of the CPAC retinue and usual suspects. Would someone please tell me what that accomplishes, I demand to know. As YouTube star Kimberly "Sweet Brown" Wilkins made famous: "Ain't nobody got time for that."
Tench Coxe would have had no time for CPAC either. The message would have been too tepid. Too usual ordinary boring vanilla obvious and saccharine. He was one of my heroes and his grave we again visited. And honored.
"As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms." (Tench Coxe in ‘Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution' under the Pseudonym ‘A Pennsylvanian' in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789 at 2 col. 1)
Tench Coxe. He was the baddest of the bad. He'd be in solitary today. And sure as hell would have not the slightest idea of what was happening in DC where the 1/6 Capitol trespassers are being held against their will, deprived of the benefits and protections of the VIII Amendment. This is why I have no time for these people now. None. Period. I simply don’t fit in. What I consider to be critical they don’t even approximate. They hover around the truth. The critical. The necessary. Say what you want about the anarchic nihilist sockpuppets, they hit the ground running and haven’t stopped. They shut down all speech and shut up and shut down anyone who dared utter the slightest thought contrary to what the shadow government overlords allowed. They burned cities, looted, destroyed property, reversed and revised history. Not to mention gender, sexual expression and abecedarian biology. These people are good. And what do "we" have? CPAC.
Coxe et al., they were the heroes of liberty. And as each day of the Biden horror drags on I keep asking myself when will America wake up and do something? Other than yammering onstage. Paying homage to celebrity mannequins.
Are you understanding my anger? My point? Good.
