(PAINTING OF NERVOUS CARTOON-MONSTER)
Caroline and I were nervously wondering how Americans will act,in at least, (no, 3rd) –national war, in the USA. Counting the Civil War, WW2, Revolutionary War, and the 3rd WW, which will be, again, fought in America. 4 or 3??OK, plenty of major wars!!! THiS generation, and younger, have not necessarily been in the army during the Vietnam War.
Unfortunately, this one will get OVER HERE, instead of overseas; so, looking like we won’t have troops on our side here, and Obama cut the FBI and Pentagon to shreds,WHEN ISIS gets over here, YOU ALL CITIZENS will be fighting them yourselves.
SO—where are you gonna be, when ISIS invades us?? Me, I will be somewhere practicing with my handgun, getting my nerves up, as I am not going to accept ISLAM AS MY RELIGION.
AND, if this old lady has to get murdered, and raped first, i’d like to put a few bullets in the guys who do it. You do NOT WANT TO BE FEMALE when your country gets invaded. Sure, they kill the men, but they destroy we woman first, and THEN kill us. Sarajevo, anyone??
“But we’ll have the National Guard, ” said Caroline, watching me miss the target completely, over at Springfield’s Emerald Empire Gun Club. (I missed the whole target again, and the club members were starting to duck, way behind the club building.)
“God, this revolver has such a kick,”I groaned, re-loading. “It’ll take me years to hit anything!!” I aimed at a sparrow, over head, and thankfully missed, but may have glanced off a way-overhead private plane.”I don’t know,” I replied, ” All the National Guard, the Army Reserve, uh–?? every single guy who is or has been a soldier, is in Iraq, Afghanistan, um…a dozen other countries; Germany. Would you believe I think we still got very poor troops in GERMANY?? I think so. Everywhere but HERE.” Caroline looked uncomfortable; she was a Christian, and hated large sabers or big execution-swords.
“I don’t know that we HAVE TROOPS FOR THE USA any more!!” I said, “Maybe the Chinese, still have their OWN, HERE, But do I look Chinese?”I asked. Caroline was sweating on a cold rainy day.”Maybe the Chinese do have fabulous troops in mainland China, but would they send em here, to protect “their property”? ” “You’d think they’d wanta protect their assets, “sighed Caroline.(I grimaced at her; were we an “asset”, or rather, our LAND was an asset, if you took care of it for them? Like we Americans had all become “grounds-keepers” for the Masters’ golf-fields? Watch out, maybe we’d be allowed to catch and eat the gophers.)
You think all those spoiled Americans, or poor ones, ever thought they’d be reduced to “grounds-keepers, “servants, “slaves,” and “the Help” for another nation? Over HERE?? OH, HOW the Mighty have fallen!!! WHERE OH WHERE, did the 80’s go??!! Right back into the 30’s.
I kept on hammering away, and Caroline finally commented, “Your shots are getting NEARER to the target, I think.” Oh, well, my dad always replied on shot-guns, and rifles, any how, you don’t gotta AIM a sawed off shot gun. THAT was liable to be my home defense; plenty of shot at one bang, so I’d miss no one. NOT rock-salt. (How do you make Molotav Cocktails again? WHY are they Russian? OH, yeah, no guns for citizens there!!–in fact, (support your NRA!!)–IF WE GOT Hillary , bless HER ROTTEN HEART, in as President, we’d be allowed to have Bhenghazi over here, also!!–all the time! “I need to buy a shot-gun,”I said, finally.”This is getting me broke for ammo.”
Caroline and I went out for ice cream, to the local Dairy Queen, and as we sat there, a lady and her kids walked by, and Caroline stared;”That woman has a gun-belt on!! I’m sure of it!! Under her sweat pants !!” I looked, sure enough, the familiar bulge.”She’s thinking about her KIDS,”i whispered back, licking my cone.”Don’t you think, you’d start carrying, if YOU had little kids?? now??!! The bottom line is, your family, and your kids!! ISIS does not discriminate against kids!!” “I read some of those stories,” groaned Caroline; “I can’t believe they kill their own peoples’ KIDS!!” “Yeah, well, they don’t care about WOMEN, EITHER,” i HISSED BACK.
“You non-NRA members can sit there, and just be victims; but I have a say-so on how I leave the planet!!”I whispered to Caroline, while she looked worried; she had a 21-yr. old.”What did you say to your kid??” “He’s asking his dad about it,” said Caroline,”HIs dad used to go hunting; he can get him one.”She looked back over the large cone,(mine) at me;”I can’t believe we’re talking about it!!”
“I bet the Colonists were having tea,, and one says,“I can’t believe we’re considering revolting against the Crown!! We are civilized human beings here!!! We are NOT wild Indians!!”I replied. But,” they learned how to fight from the Indians, you know that? They copied Indian-style fighting. THAT is how they did it. The British all lined up, in a line, all fired in unison, the European method. The colonists hid behind trees, rocks, forests, ambushed the British, we do owe the Indians that.” “I think their casinos are doing ok too,” said Caroline. schmirk!!
“You can’t say, the shits not ever gonna hit the fan,” I continued. “I heard Obama greatly reduced the FBI, and the Pentagon; so, don’t hold yer breath, waiting for the troops to arrive, and save us.” “I heard, the soldiers are afraid of getting stuck over in middle east, while we have a war over here. they’re afraid they’ll be abandoned over there!!” said Caroline.
I kept licking my cone;”I’m just an old lady,”I sighed,to Caroline,”.I am old, I can’t really do a damn thing!! They’ll just MASH ME, I won’t have time to run!! FUCK IT ALL; ” I got more militant:
“You know WHO i’ll use these bullets on, if I get the chance?? The guys who kept Obama and Hillary in office, and sit there, letting us go to Hell.All those voting liberals!!! Even the ones in Eugene, especially. Humph!! they’ll probably all lie down, and convert to ISLAM. IN HUGE NUMBERS!!! All those yuppie-organic-vegetarian-liberal twerps!! You bet theyll just neel down, and praise ALLAH!! 5 TIMES A DAY.” “yes,” sighed Caroline,” you might, too. ” “They won’t keep old ladies, Caroline; I’ll end up in a firing squad. oh, Hell, i was looking forward to dying in bed!!”I grunted.
“Remember to go buy a yew tree, and plant it, before then,” said Caroline..”Yeah,”I replied,”I’m gonna try to find one in a nursery; I forgot. They used to have em on Wilke’s drive. Our neighbors.” “Never too late or too soon, to get a Yew tree, very nice trees. Useful, too.” “Better a yew tree, than a birch.Oh, hey, birches are handy, too!! very handy!!! nice trees, especially in groves.” We just sat there, licking, and feeling impotent. “I’d still like to take out a Liberal before I go,” I replied. “I gotta get some satisfaction!!” “One gets very little control over life, and very little satisfaction.” “I know, you get old, you realize, we DON’T HAVE CONTROL over life, maybe what toothpaste; but nothing big.” I snickered. “A Cable tv WITH COMMERCIALS ANY WAY!!”
“Maybe the only satisfaction in life, is destruction.”I said, finally.”which is why everyone uses it; all we can do, finally, is destroy!! DESTROY THE ENEMY.” “i Think i need to buy one,” said Caroline.”You know where?” “MM..Over in Santa Clara Center, nice little newish gun shop;”I replied, smiling” Oakgrove Gun shop. Nice guys, really, honest.” “I just was thinking about Anthony, “sighed Caroline.”I can’t do NOTHING!!” “I know, AND ITS NOT MUCH. BUT it worked for our ancestors, didn’t it? got them killed, they lost everything, but it was something. and that’s not nothing.”
