Not So Young But Angry Conservatives Unite

Getting sick of the progressively worse slant and obvious bias of the media? Got booted out of other sites for offending too many liberals? Make this your home. If you SPAM here, you're gone. Trolling? Gone. Insult other posters I agree with. Gone. Get the pic. Private sanctum, private rules. No Fairness Doctrine and PC wussiness tolerated here..... ECCLESIASTES 10:2- The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of a fool to the left.

GREAT POEM....

Hat Tip to Gold Dragon at http://www.famousidiot.com/

The Final Inspection

The soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, you soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"

The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place,
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod
As the soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you soldier,
You've borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

And the ACLU would probably hate this one also......

    Ranando, what is that I smell? Oh, it's the steaming pile of horseshit, you are tossing out as a post. STFU you twit! Current Democrats won't serve, they're chicken just like you. I'd serve were it not for a shot knee and being a tad old.....

    What site did you cut and paste that off of? MoveOn? Daily Kos? Come on, impress me.

    and don't ruin this topic! It's a poem for Chrissakes! Most soldiers didn't care about politics, just killin the enemy so the enemy didn't kill them or their loved ones.

    Bet you'd make a great commissar, frickin Socialist.

     
  • At 9:08 AM, Blogger Ranando said…

    Hey Nick,

    This is fact, check it out on your own.

    Just telling the truth.

     
  • At 9:33 AM, Blogger Ranando said…

    Also, in your title you write,"A wise man's heart leads him to do right, and a fool heart leads him to do left" ECCLESIATES 10:2.

    As you know that is incorrect, you might want to read this.

    "And I solemly declare to everyone who reads this book: If anyone adds anything to what is written here, God shall add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone subtracts any part of these prophecies, God shall take away his share in the tree of life, and the Holy City just described". REVELATION 22: 18, 19

    I can't wait to see what your come back is to this.

    Yawn, don't have the time to waste on you, Clown Nose.....

    Oh Bible Lectures from those who side with God's enemies. That's rich. Mr. Bible Quotes thinks he knows more than anyone else. Too bad you never took it to heart.

    Add and take away? Not me, it's called DIFFERENT TRANSLATIONS! And since you're sure yours is the only right one, you're an arrogant SOB.

    You never posted a site link. Just like I figured.

     
  • At 11:26 AM, Blogger Ranando said…

    Site Link?

    It's called the Bible, read it you might learn something.

    Don't tell me your just another Right-Wing Born-Again Fanatic Hypocrite.

     
  • At 12:37 PM, Blogger NDwalters said…

    Not the Bible, you dweeb, the service records. Oh and you're such a Christian......

     
  • At 12:46 PM, Blogger Kevin said…

    Nick,

    I know we don't see eye to eye politically, but I defend you a hell of a lot more than you give me credit for. I side with you on a number of things, and those which I don't, I present fairly and cordially to you.

    You wrote:
    I'd serve were it not for a shot knee and being a tad old.....

    Don't ever write that shit again.

    That's a line of horseshit and you know it. I'll say for myself, I would not serve because I don't want to belong to the military.

    There's a host of reasons why you probably don't, but don't give me that shit about your knee.

    You don't like people that haven't read the bible throwing verses at you, and I don't blame you. But when you are supporting a war and someone then says why don't you join it, don't give some piss poor excuse like that,

    I know you - and I know thats bullshit.

    Hey ...It was a great poem.

    Ranando ...keep on dividing this country .....and make yourself available and visible when the next civil (uncivil?) war breaks out

     
  • At 3:08 PM, Blogger NDwalters said…

    PD, he don't care, as long as HE is right....

    Kevin, thank you for taking sides of the leftists. Middle of the Road, my Ascot.

     
  • At 3:19 PM, Blogger NDwalters said…

    I said SHOT KNEE. Shot as in knee aches. Ludlow, you really are a peace of work. WTF do you think you're doing? Thanks for the backstabbing. Apparently politics matters more than anything, huh? Nope, strike that. Being right. That's more important than anything isn't it?

    Ranando, STFU you fake. You're no Christian. You side with a party that mocks God, mocks his people, and is curbing any religious freedom. That's called a traitor, and you are one......

     
  • At 4:26 PM, Blogger Kevin said…

    I'm not playing politics on this one - I didnt even read the poem.

    I just read that you said you wouldn't join the military because you have a bad knee and thats bullshit.

     
  • At 8:52 PM, Blogger NDwalters said…

    Kevin, I never claimed to have served. I have a shitty knee, OK? There, happy? It hurts, if it makes you feel any better.....

     
  • At 12:23 AM, Blogger Kevin said…

    That's just a pithetic excuse am I am ashamed that you would write it. It lacks honesty and integrity of character.

    You didn't join the military because
    1) you wanted to make money
    2) you are more educated than your average serviceman
    3) you are lazy
    4) you don't want to be killed
    5) you think the armed forces doesn't need you because others are there

    The list could go on. I know you can pick at least one of those, if not many. I am sure I could pick numbers 1, 2, & 4.

    There's men being shot up to the point of there recoveries being miracles. And some of those men return to the battle. So I'll say again, an excuse to join the military is PERFECTLY FINE, but don't say it's your weak knee. Have some respect for those in service.
