best wishes for the coming year to a great bunch of people. my final post of this year. cheers all.

Another year about to end.  There were trials and tribulations during the year, personal ones, but as this year ends I truly believe I have been one hell of a lucky fellow.

Yes, I end the year with gripes about inconsiderate neighbors, political correctness, and deep frustration at the world I see now.  On the other hand, I consider myself luckier than I deserve to be, and I am very well lucky in the friends I still have. 

I’m very fortunate that I happened along at a time when Mr. Christian, as he was called, invited me to join BMEWS as a blogger.  Good grief. That was scary and I almost ran for the hills.  But he gave me confidence that I could, and because of that I have met, on line, all of you.  And I am very thankful for that.  Thankful too that I’m not a libtard cos if I were, jeesh. Not one of you would speak to me.  Well, not in kind terms anyway.  You regulars that I have come to know here are pretty special folk.  I enjoy your comments, and some are funny even when you’re angry. 

Many of you are pretty darn good wordsmiths.  I don’t have your ability to use words the way I’d like to, but many of you do.  I appreciate good writing, which I think stems a lot from my association with song writers in Nashville.  Or anywhere else for that matter.  I’ve never been able to work out how or where the words come from.  If I could, I’d be doing it.  So instead I simply jot down here what I’m thinking at any given moment.  Sometimes that ain’t too good cos what I’m think might be nothing more than mushy thinking and I have to go back and edit my thinking. 

Can’t end the year without saying thanks to Vilmar, and the sharing of those photographs.  He says he isn’t a professional and maybe he isn’t.  He just creates photos that darn well are professional. 

A special friendship that must have its own paragraph is the one I enjoy with Drew.
Letters and emails and questions answered, and I will tell you, favors done by someone I never met personally and who had trust in me, whoa.  That isn’t easily come by.  I am not going to get all gooey and stupid here. I hate that kind of thing. But I just want to acknowledge publicly that he is a friend, and I owe him a lot.
So thanks Drew for the past year and the one before and here’s cheers for the one coming. 

I wish I had saved many of the comments made by so many of you for a years end post.  But I didn’t, and there isn’t enough time right now to go into the archives and dig.  I guess I left it too late.  Might be a project for next year though, if I make it that far.  Hey, ya never know. 

I do have a few from more recent days.

Meanwhile BMEWS, I wish you a very Safe and a very Healthy New Year.
If you have those, Happy will follow.

Cheers for a great group of people.  ALL OF YOU.

I can not remember who or where I got this from.  So my apologies for not naming.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional,
illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream
media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible
to pick up a piece of sh*t by the clean end. “

People who have never had their lives or their families lives or their neighbors lives threatened are not relevant to any discussion of firearms and should not intrude where reality based adults are having conversations.  So STFU because you are in no danger from Americans with guns.  Worry about muslims with guns now that they own your country.

The Law Abiding are the only people who need guns to fend off idiots like Union thugs, gangs, and moonbats in general.  If you don’t see any need for people to own guns, then you are part of the reason people need to own guns.  You are stupid and self centered and oblivious.  That makes you dangerous.

“The response time of the police is about 5 minutes.  The response time of a 45 ACP is 900 feet per second.” or"The police are minutes away when seconds count.”
Dr. Jeff

I did a long winded rant on the subject, and CM came back with better in fewer words. The issue was treason and the left, if memory serves.

“Where we have tried to keep ourselves above the sort of depravity/insanity the other side indulges in, they have been gnawing away at our ankles. And the most impressive statue depends on its ankles to support it. We try to show the light on the hill, they put on a blindfold. We’ve got to tear that blindfold off, even if it means going in to their sphere to get to it.”

FIXING THE FIX
If they don’t fix it, they wont be able to:
Study why the fix caused problems
Hire more people to manage the fix
Hire people to fix the mistakes fixing the fix
Mount a study to plan for a better fix
Hire people to blame those who did the original fix
Train new people for the new tech that develops since then
Move everyone to a new project they can fix
...you know, like everything else they muck up....

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
