You Christians out there, stand by for heavy rolls.


NPR ran a story on the flag being removed from the State House grounds in S.C.  They had some woman "representative" on there, recorded on the house floor, and she was literally shrieking about the flag. If ever there was a boni fide hater, that was one. Sounded like a Nazi pontificating on the Jews.


 Later after I got home, I turned on the tv. Some black caucus clown was on the floor of the house up in D.C.  He said that Robert E. Lee called the Confederate Battle Flag a "symbol of treason." If Ignorance is bliss this guy has the Dali Lama beat for high Nirvana factor.

From their own lips

Seeing what kind of people did this thing, I feel better. It wasn't normal, intelligent people. It was the bottom feeders. They got the flag moved.  Southerners got a shot in the arm of Southern Pride, and a wake up call about what the Morlocks have in store for us if we let them get away with it. I have seen more Confederate flags flying in this county, more letters to editor in the paper that were pro-Southern, and heard more Southern Pride reflected in people's voices in the last two weeks than in the last ten years. Every time the out of staters and the professional race baiters stir the pot, they create more Southern patriots. They should take a look at how British efforts to stamp out the IRA worked. But they're too stupid to do that.



I put this quote in here from Walter Williams because I have been reading his commentary on WND for more than ten years. He's not only shrewd, he's a thoroughly decent man.  I wrote him once, asking if I could post some of his work on my old blog. He wrote me back a nice letter, and said I could and was welcome to. It was hand written and he signed it.  Who do you know who would do that anymore?


Move On. Org is not wasting any time. They're moving on alright, to Christians. I'm not one, so you might say I have no dog in this fight. But that's not  true.  Because I don't believe in God or religion doesn't mean I have no appreciation for Christian values. I think they kept the country on an even keel for a long, long time. But the facts are, Christianity across the world is declining, and especially in America and Europe. Don't take my word for it, do a little research on the internet and the numbers, though they differ from source to source, are pretty plain.


Part of it is the prolific birth rate of Moslems. It's nothing for a Moslem family to include ten or more children. In the U.S., and in Europe, the birth rate of ethnic groups that tend to be Christian is so low that they aren't even replacing themselves.    In America, Islam has a big appeal to inner city minorities (you know who I'm talking about if you read the papers in big cities). It's not an accident that so many of these folks are named Mohammed Abdul Akbar Patooti Kissim or monikers of that nature. Take a drive down some of the streets in Atlanta where there are mosques, on a Friday, and the believers are out in the streets praying because there's no room for them in the mosque.  I haven't seen that at any Christian churches in awhile.  In Atlanta they block the traffic, but the police steer clear.  Large numbers of black people, anxious to be offended and put upon. Not a good place for the police to be and after Ferguson and Baltimore, they aren't playing that game anymore.  So block the streets. But if a Christian church did that, it'd be blue lights and traffic control as far up and down the street as you could see.



Then too, in Africa, the Middle East, and places like Indonesia, Christians are just being killed off. Lots of them convert to save their lives. After all, God has a poor record of defending his adherents when it comes to Christianity.


Part of the reason is a systematic attempt on the part of the government to stamp Christianity out. No prayers at the Air Force Academy. No prayers in school. No clubs in schools affiliated with Christianity.  No nativity scenes at your court house.  Mosques get tax exempt status but the government works overtime taking away the tax exempt status of churches that have been around for a hundred years or more. And then there are the judges up in D.C. and at the Federal Circuit Courts.


The Supreme Court rendered 26 major  decisions in the current term, and 22 of them were "liberal" in nature. This according to NPR, in one of their self congratulatory broadcasts this week. If you don't go along with the gay marriage edict they recently issued, you can get in a lot of trouble. Take a look at what is happening to florists and bakers, for example, who can't in good conscience participate in gay weddings. Just google it,

Or how about people who work in court houses, issuing marriage licenses? Now the Supreme Court says they have to do something that goes against their beliefs, or lose their jobs. Kind of like living in Nazi Germany in the 30's. Get with the program or suffer the consequences.



 Tough decision. So far no one has been cast into prison, but based on an Al Jazeera report I watched this morning, that's in the works.



One thing that is funny about it, if anything can be said to be humorous about this, is that a lot of black Christians now find themselves hoist on their own petard. They made much of using the law to force business people to serve everyone. Now they're the ones who are on the receiving end of a similar law. Can't have a double standard, now can we?  Or, being the country this is, we can but you have to put a fig leaf of respectability on it and they're having trouble doing that.

Personally I don't care either way about the Gay Rights thing, but listening to some of the Rainbow Coalition Folks on the news, I think they're going after Christians hammer and tongs. Those guys on staff make good money, and they aren't giving up their jobs just because they got everything they wanted out of the Supreme Court.  No sir, "doing right ain't got no end" as the Red Legs Captain Terrell said in "The Outlaw Josey Wales."

"Doing right ain't got no end!"

 Don't get the impression I'm gay bashing, because as I said, I have real issues to worry about and that's not one of them.  But I can smell political expediency and the desire for power over others, and right now the Rainbow folks reek of it. Just for the hell of it, google "Christian persecution in this country" and hit "images." You'll be surprised what shows up.


But there's hope.  People are starting to wake up to what's going on with the government and the "law." More and more are dealing with the reality of having some withered up old prune like Ruth Bader Ginsberg telling them how to live.  For a long time now, I've been living according to the precepts of Robert E. Heinlein.  Here's one of his most important "rules to live by."


I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them.

  1. Hey Harry,

    (captaincrunch)


    What you wrote Harry was well spoken as always.

    Yeah' the Christians are next. Churches will lose their tax exempt status for not marrying homosexuals and so on.

    What it boils down to is the people get the government they vote for. A great many Christians have the mindset of helping the poor through socialistic ideals and that of course will backfire on them because they don't study Karl Marx (religion is the opium of the masses) and all his followers like Saul Alinski and others.

    Social Justice; if I hear someone talk about Social Justice. I run the other way. The pope is now calling for social justice crap. You want some help for the poor Mr. Pontiff. Have garage sell at the Vatican. Put a bunch of that crap that's built up from the last 2000 years up on craigslist. Make some money to help the poor.

    On the Confederate flag thing......

    Yesterday Nancy Polosi allegedly said something about "I will hang them with that (Confederate) flag"

    I wonder if I would get a rope burn from a flag around my neck. Maybe I will get lucky and a friend with a rifle will shoot the flag out from around my neck. I can escape on the back of my horse (In Texas we all have horses, in fact. My horses name is Nancy) and I will be an outlaw like Josey Wells and send someone down the river on a 'Missouri Boat Ride"

    Things will only get worse. The party is just starting.

    Harry' I don't know if you have ever seen the movie 'Idiocracy" Its not the best movie, albeit it has some funny satirical parts. The president of the future United States is named 'President Comacho" and he was a former television wrestler that got elected by the dumb down populists.

    I fear our own President Comacho will work towards another Constitutional Convention and things will really break apart by then.

    1. Polosi said that in the context of using it as a bludgeon to beat the Republicans with in the next election. Won't work though. First off, the Republican leadership has been more anti-Southern than the Democrats. Boehner himself is currently calling for a review of all "Confederate Symbols" in public places all across America. The stupid thing is, conservatives like me, who have been voting Republican for 40 years or more, will never vote for a Republican again in consequence of their moral cowardice over the Confederate Flag, which is really a first amendment issue. But they can be as hateful as they want to Southerners, and it won't get them one single black or hispanic vote. The Democrats are the party of "entitlements." The Democrats give out welfare and all the other goodies. They buy the minority vote, and the vote of a lot of whites as well. The Republicans are the party of big business, which no one likes anyway. They're going the way of the Whigs, and nothing will replace them. We're on the way to a one party system and it's not that far off, in practice if not by law.

      The "Black Caucus" snuck in an amendment to a bill just passed in Congress, which makes it illegal to display the Confederate Flag in a Federal Park. So if I drive my truck into a national forest I guess they can try to arrest me now. Well, when all this B.S. started that old black preacher said "they be some folk's out dere tink they can jus' say anything dey wan', wid out bein' held 'sponsible, but we be gwain to change dat."

      I guess he was right. So much for freedom of expression or freedom of speech. The really fun thing is that none of these people who are all shrieking and hollering give a damn about the Nazi flag.

    1. Alissa, I would say that short of a modern miracle, Hillary Clinton will be the next President. She is a shoe in for the Democratic Nomination, and the Republican candidates are all poster candidates for mediocrity. It's hard to work up enthusiasm for a pasty faced non-entity like Jeb Bush, for instance. So I guess we are in for some bad times, as Hillary is the closest thing to Anti-Christ I can think of .

      I wonder if the presidential candidates even care anymore. Maybe they just want to get as much of their personal agendas accomplished as they can and not worry about anything else. Obama is that way. It's all about him, and what he wants, and everything and everyone else can go to the devil. They have the Louie the XIV attitude. "After me, the deluge!"

      My flags, both on the pole and on the vehicles, remain unscathed as well.

      I had the distinct pleasure of seeing the head of the South Carolina Branch of the NAACP on Al Jazerra today. He was not very well spoken, in fact, I could barely understand him. Nor did he have much of an idea what the furor was all about, attributing it to South Carolina's support of States Rights as opposed to the wonderful federal government. But he did heap scorn on the South Carolina politicians who cravenly caved in to the demands of the street mobs. He said that it was good the flag was gone, but now "we" needed to get rid of the politicians in the state house, who deprived black people of education, of jobs, of homes, and presumably of life , liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The guy was a real dolt, but if the Governor of South Carolina and her merry nest of Quislings thought they were off the hook with "de bruddas" they were sorely mistaken. Serves them right, and bad cess to them.

    2. The Christian church is one of the last bastions of morality left. So it has to go. Anyone or anything that dares stand up to the Regime and it's minions is going to be a target. By definition, Christians are anathema to Obama and his ilk.

      There isn't much people can do, but what little they can, they should. I have spent some of this evening writing joyful letters to the hag in the South Carolina governors mansion and some of South Carolinas most Kumbaya politicians, sharing with them the pearls of wisdom dispensed by the NAACP guy. Wouldn't want them to rejoice overly much at their "triumph" today and his bile certainly won't have been the praise they expected for their "noble deed."

  5. As a Christian, I am fully expecting the backlash. The Supreme Court has now given the green light for the left to come after me. Now POTUS is saying that I need to adjust my religious thinking to get with the times. I've become a target of the new Totalitarianism.

    Look, it's not for me to judge gay marriage. Do what you want in your own home. It's the politics of these folks that grates on me. Fine a bakery because they won't make you a cake? Call in the brown shirts! These are the same ideologues that are coming after the rebel flag to squash the red states southern culture. Fight them on their own terms I say. Use Alinsky's book on them. So I propose the following: The rainbow flag is a symbol of hate--Every time I see it in public I plan to let them know it. It symbolizes intolerance towards my beliefs, an attack on my first amendment rights, and it screams "I will tell you how to groupthink".

    These kind and compassionate folks will be shocked and astounded when they hear this from a conservative. And I will cheerfully end the conversation with "...and I will NOT COMPLY". --Troy

They'll use every tool to hand, from the IRS to the FBI, to getting people fired and on through the whole gamut of Obama's new Real Politik.

      The Rainbow Coaltion people I heard on NPR were quite outspoken about the fact that they were just getting started. They had a long list of new "demands" including modifying education curriculum to insure that " Gay, Lesbian and Transgendered" life styles were taught in elementary schools to ensure total acceptance of those people.

    2. That's ok. Same rights and acceptance for all whoever you love. My brother is gay and married and it was no problem in my family and we should teach people that there are different forms of love. Many men have mistresses etc. and this seems to be a normal fact , so what is bothering people about homosexuals ? Bible, Thora and
      Coran interpretations say nothing , for me, they are fairy tale books.

    3. Nadine,
      In some respects,it's not really about the issue of homosexuality. It's more about the tendency of left wing groups here to focus on elementary schools as mechanisms of social engineering. In this country, there has been a long held belief that teaching morals, values, is the prerogative of the mother and father, of the family. Not of the State. But for at least thirty years now, the left wing, which controls education at federal and state level, has modified the teaching curriculum so that teachers are forced to teach a political, socialist view to children. Kids are taught not to think for themselves, not to act for themselves, but always to refer to an authority figure for help. This is not based on hearsay. I taught in an elementary school for three years, then refused to renew my contract because I could no longer be a party to such blatant abuse of authority. This is called "social engineering" in the United States. It is considered the right of authority by the left, and an unwarranted intrusion into private life by the right.

      What they were doing, and what they are doing, was very wrong. That's how I feel about it. I don't want children brain washed by the schools to believe things that the parents do not.

      I know France has a long history of being secular. But the Southern U.S. is not known as The Bible Belt without reason. Again, the similarity to the Vendee in your country, where resistance to the revolution was largely based on it's anti-clerical nature. Many people here firmly believe in their religion. I did, myself, until I was 32 so I can sympathize with them. I try not to offend religious people. I hope I share many of their values. Among my associates, I know many who believe homosexuality is wrong, but I know of no one who would mistreat or harm a Gay person because of this. Where problems occur is when the State says "you have to obey our laws and do what we say, even if this means you cannot adhere to your own religious beliefs." Everyone knows the Democratic Party is Godless and atheistic. I say this as an atheist myself. But where as I try to "live and let live" with my religious associates, the state is now destroying the lives of people who will not comply. If I own a business, who I choose to serve should be up to me. But bakers who refuse to bake Gay wedding cakes, and florist who refuse to be party to Gay weddings, are losing their business licenses, being fined, and being driven out of business by the courts. If Gay people want to get married, so be it. But for them to be able to force other people to participate against their will, is wrong.

I know it's a Moslem propaganda organ but at least they cover the news.If I turn on Fox or any of the American MSN they're talking about Kim Kardasian showing her behind again, or about the womens soccer team, or other irrelevant issues.

      But Al Jazeera has in depth stories, almost always oriented to tear down this country. One they have been particularly dwelling on is the immense pressure being brought to bear on people in the U.S. who do not support the Gay lifestyle. There's a certain irony in this, since we all know what happens to homosexuals in countries ruled by fundamentalist Moslems.

    1. Confederate monuments are being defaced, and Confederate cemeteries are being desecrated. There will be push back for these things. Rural Southerners would prefer to be left alone, but when they are not, they don't sit on their behinds and bewail fate. What form that takes will depend on the individual. There's little trust or confidence in the political system, and when that happens there is potential for frustrated, angry people with no other outlet to express themselves going "high and right." I can't say I would blame anyone who did so, given the provocations being heaped on Southerners, day after day.

      Even those who , for whatever reason, felt unable to take direct action would feel great sympathy and provide tacit support for those that did. I remember well the FBI straggling around in the forests of North Carolina, not an hours drive from here, looking for Eric Rudolph. He was supported by the local people. No one took the FBI bribes or succumbed to the FBI threats and intimidation. In the end, Rudolph just wore out. Push rural Southerners hard enough and there will be some very unpleasant results for those who think they've found an easy target down here.

By the time Hillary and the Democratic Machine get through with Sanders, I expect he'll be glad to hide under a rock.

      The Republicans have no one of any stature to run. None of the candidates are anything but career politicians who are a monument to political expediency. They're dead anyway. Every year, more illegals vote and they always vote Democrat. The ethnic minorities are expanding in numbers exponentially, based on astounding birth rates and massive illegal immigration. They vote Democrat, the party of handouts and entitlement, the party of affirmative action and reverse discrimination.

      The Republicans are renowned as the party of Big Business, which alienates younger voters. I've always voted for their ticket because I thought they were stronger on the second amendment and on illegal immigration. But they aren't, it's all been a snow job. So from now on, I vote Libertarian. I know my candidate wont' win but I will no longer aid and abet a bunch of phonies so my vote won't be "wasted."

Doesn't just talk big but uses the power of his political office to make the lives of people better. That doesn't make the news for some reason. In spite of a lot of his positions that I hate, I like him as a human being.

      The Republicans are doomed. Demographics are against them. However, the Democrats will not be far behind as there isn't anything holding them together much beyond not being Republicans.

      2/3 of the voters in NH are registered Independents. They can vote in either primary. Parties can't just appeal to their base as a anyone who can attract across party lines has a big advantage. If the Independents were a third party they would be the biggest party.

    3. I'm going to vote Libertarian if I have the choice. For many years, I didn't because I wanted my vote to "count." Now I see I was just fooling myself, I was voting for a party that was just the other face of the same coin.

      Stupidity, greed, and a willingness to compromise the principles of their base in order to appeal to people who will never vote for them no matter what they do has finished off the Republican party. I couldn't agree with you more. I know I'll never vote for another Republican for dog catcher, let alone any other office.

      I saw what you wrote to Nadine the French girl. It was well thought out as usual Harry.

      You mentioned the 'Vendee"

      I know very little of the Vendee massacre that occurred after the French Revolution.
      What I do now is that all of them were wiped out!

      Now in regards to the South and the Vendee, again I know little about the Vendee. What I do know if the South was invaded by the Russians for example. The fight would just as bloody and costly as Afghanistan was to the Russians in the 80's.
      The only way eradicate Southern culture is to completely wipe out the South with every terrible superweapon available in a nations inventory and turn the South into a unliveable hellhole like Chernobly of Fukashima.
      Even then, there would be hillbilly up there in them hills cooking up some kind of 'glow in the dark' moonshine.

    3. After the French revolution began, the Vendee was a conservative area that was more closely aligned with the Catholic church than elsewhere in the country. The people there resisted and there was an incipient guerrilla war that simmered on all the way through to the end of the Napoleonic era. I'm not an expert on French history by any means, but I know this from reading about the period of Napoleon's primacy, which is of interest to me.

      If the leftards are continually able to chip away at Southern heritage in the schools, and to eradicate the visible "totems" of that heritage like our monuments, our flags, our cemeteries, our holidays, then they can change us all into mudmen with no sense of past or links to our ancestors. I think first, that they will have other issues to deal with very shortly, such as ISIS and the coming economic collapse. But if they keep pushing this, some people are going to fight back with whatever tools they have and in whatever way they know.

  10. Well I will make no comment , but I notice that there is no real exchange , all your followers always agree and seem to have exactly the same opinions. Your side is good, the other side is evil.
    I visited some places in the USA, Santa Fé, Seattle, Chicago, Frisco , New York, New Orleans and some more and I met a lot of nice and a lot of stupid people, as you can found them in every country
    I do not know but may be you are all members of a special corporation, normally in a blog there are a lot of different discussion subjects, I really miss this in your blog. I respect your opinions but I do not understand them and do not agree, it's too difficult and long to develop this on a blog.

    1. Nadine, I wish you could see the news here. The people that I talk with a lot on my blog are the epitome of patience and courtesy compared to the people we oppose. Then too, in America today there is no spirit of compromise. The left tries to make laws to force everyone to live exactly the same way, regardless of what the individual might want. If you have read Orwell's "1984" that's what we are experiencing today.

      The great mass of the people are like sheep. They don't watch the news. They don't read the paper. They talk about what sports team won what game. Look at the furor here over the women's soccer games, a totally irrelevant event with no significance whatsoever. As the Roman Emperor Augustus remarked, as long as the people have bread and games they don't matter. A person can be nice, and stupid, and still be irrelevant.

      I think most blogs are not oriented towards any particular subject. This one is specifically about a certain lifestyle. I am not concerned with being conciliatory or arguing with people who don't share my beliefs. I tried that, not so long ago, and all I got was hundreds of obscene, asinine comments which wasted my time and did not serve any useful purpose. Only Sara Miller tried to communicate in a decent manner and she stopped coming here , I think because it was obvious that however polite and careful our conversations, our beliefs were unshakable and we could not be changed.

      I know you don't understand our opinions, but the context is so different from France. Although France has to cope with the immigrant problem , French culture is distinct. When I was a NATO staff officer, French officers would speak perfect english in the officers club at night, but during the day they would speak only French. Even though they were not part of NATO officially at the time, the French were integrated in the command structure so I got to know a lot of them. They were very proud of France, and given what I saw of French soldiers (the paras and the legion) in Lebanon they had reason to be.

      Here, we used to be that way but now the feeling of one America is gone. Instead, we have large blocks of people like blacks and hispanics who are, in general, only out for themselves. Moreover, they often want to destroy the culture of people outside their ethnic group and will resort to any means to do so, since their conception of honor is nonexistent. Can you find many members of these groups who are not that way. Certainly. I am speaking in generalities here.

      I don't mind your not agreeing. You aren't hateful about it. But after I attracted the attention of trolls by commenting on an Israeli friends blog, they tried to shut my blog down by pouring in hundreds of spam messages. They left comments insulting me and my wife in the vilest terms. Those people were evil. That's exactly the right word. I have no use for animals like that. I hope this explains some of the issues you find perplexing. It's the best I can do.

    2. Nadine, for the record, we don't always seem to agree. Harry and I have had differences of opinion, not often though, and where it was necessary (which again is not often) we handle it like gentlemen usually via email. Not by making a scene in public.

      Its usually considered rude to constantly visit someone elses blog and always have something contrary to say. It only engenders hard feelings, with the blogger usually deciding to give it up after a while...... really.... who wants to deal with that garbage of constantly defending ones position to the nth degree over differences that are, honestly, personality related at the root of the problem.

      I cone here to learn something from someone who knows a hell of a lot more about most things in general. Arguing with him constantly won't accomplish that.

      Even if I read something I disagree with, at least I learn how the other side thinks and why. Once in a while, I even get my opinions changed.

      It wouldn't hurt everyone to show up here with an open mind. They might accidentally learn something constructive.

      Just sayin'

    3. I think most of us have disagreements over some issues, or we have opinions that are a shade different on some things. I only know of one individual I used to talk to who couldn't handle a difference of opinion without getting personal, and he was a good guy other than that. I miss his blog, because it was damn good, but I got tired of the high and right reactions if you didn't go along with everything in his program.

      You and I do have different opinions on some things Matt, but I never felt like they were that important. We agree on the things that matter. I've also appreciated over the years that you never treated me any different because of my lack of religion.

    4. Treating an individual any different for the sole reason that he is an atheist would just be stupid. As long as both are being, at the very least, civil, there is simply no reason for such behavior. In fact, I would trust you to watch my back over many so called "Christians" that I have known over the years. Sadly, they are "christians" in name only and I would turn my back on them for anything.

      In a like manner, there are atheists, like that joker in Laughlin, NV, that I and one other blogger have both invited out to our respective places to see if he wanted to run his mouth in our faces and do his name calling like he does online to see what happens to him. Smartly, on his part he declined and eventually confined himself to his area.

      It takes all kinds, and there are butt-holes in every crowd. I won't let one define his particular tribe.

      You've always treated me well and with respect, just like the rest of your regulars here, Harry, I appreciate that.

    5. Frisco? really? Frisco, from a french Jewish black girl in Paris? Sounds a bit like that blond chick in Seattle who claimed to be black. Frisco? not hardly vocabulary for some Parisian girl. An old washed up, has been beatnik hippy, who visited Height Ashbury in 1958 to listen to Jack Kerouac blither nonsensical rantings against the establishment and now lives off welfare in a claptrap campervan wandering around the UK, yes.

  11. If all this ok for you, no problem. By the way I'm black too and I do not agree what you think about France. I follow the American news quite closely and even if I cannot discuss in small details I know what is going on in your country. We have so different view points and I suppose on your side you cling so much to your life style .The photo of your brother and his small son with a rifle troubled me terribly. I think as Sara Miller I will stop to comment, I will certainly read from time to time your comments but for me the vibes are not good. I love to exchange with people who do not have only negative statements. Even the women on your blog seem full of hate and despite. I wish you all the best, health and joy.

    PS Few French speak foreign languages I travelled a lot in Germany where all people can answer in English etc. when you ask them.
    Good luck for you.

  12. Nadine, we don't hate people. We just aren't going to let other people determine how we live. I don't hate black people at all. I admit I get close to it with some people, regardless of skin color, who are doing things that negatively impact me personally.

    Aren't you clinging to your lifestyle by condemning mine? It bothers me not one whit that you don't agree with me, nor do I find you less interesting for it, nor do I want you to stop coming by here. It's ok to disagree in the way you do.

    We train children in the use of firearms from an early age here. I still have the "cricket" .22 rifle my children learned on, as they progressed from air guns to full fledged firearms. A weapon is a tool. It's not good or evil. It's no different from a chain saw, or a hoe. Tools are inanimate objects that can be put to good use or evil use, depending on the person wielding them.

    Be careful of using the news to make decisions about people. I listened to the BBC for many years when I was in the service. I worked in places where shortwave was the only way to get news. But the BBC became so anti-american, such a mouthpiece for British upper class people who did not like America, that I had to quit listening. The people who produce the news always have their own agenda.

    I'd be very sorry if you stopped coming by here, as I regretted that just as Sara Miller was reaching a point where she could talk here without getting angry, she left. But I respect your decision if that's how you feel. However, if you reconsider I will be glad of it.

  13. Adrian = Addy = Eddy = Aron = Sara = Nadine are all the same person. The one constant is the contrarian theme and most recently claiming they are a girl, from Paris, Jewish and now black as well.

    July 16, 2014 Cro Magnon on his blog Magnon's Meaderings posts this:http://magnonsmeanderings.blogspot.com/2014/07/theyre-in-news-again.html
    A somewhat surprisingly conservative post for what is otherwise a usually effete bohemian expat Brit painter posting about the good life in southern France. A few followers comment in support of Israel and the usual bunch of euro weenies spout their vile rage against them. Outstanding among them one Adrian. https://www.blogger.com/profile/07113961163396562781Who in an vulgar attempt to silence any views differing from his own lets everyone know of his outrage at what Israel is doing against Hamas, and amidst an emotional barrage of profanities swears he will shut down Cro's blog for expressing his opinion against what Hamas was doing. Cro tells him to stuff it. After a day or so, Adrian's comment is removed. Soon after that a series of anonymous comments signed by Addy, Eddy, Aaron appear with the same profanity laced tirades and identical verbiage used by Adrian whenever Cro post about news events involving Hamas, ISIS, Syria or the subject in general. When Yael posts a comment thanking Cro for his support some of Cro's followers visit Yael's page. Israel is under attack by indiscriminate Hammas rocket fire. Yael post about how this affects her daily life and some attempt to give her encouragement and support. Any time any one makes a comment in favor of Israel on her blog they are summarily attacked by the same character making the same points as Adrian did previously on Cro's blog, usually posting anonymously but signing their seething verbal abuse variably as Addy, Eddy, Aaron and a few others. Addy is Brit shorthand for Adrian. Some time late 2014 the name Sara Miller first makes an appearance carrying on with the same theme and making the same points. Comments are usually some hollow off kilter shallow statement but worded just so that you can read the rude innuendo and seething anger. Always making a veiled attempt at misdirecting the reader by apologizing for her bad English. Oddly enough the tirades often slip in to perfect and quite complex diction blowing her cover. Cro and Yael seem to let it slide. Sara continues to send comments varying from the inane yet hinting at a subliminal anger, to the downright profane but always making the same tired argument and using the same verbiage as Adrian first did on Cro's page.
    It is almost certain the individual behind all this is Adrian.

    1. What a mess. I don't understand why anyone would go to all that trouble, but I don't discount what you say.

      I appreciate your comment and have posted it so that all are aware of the convoluted nature of these events.

  14. Well, I guess all that's left is to find out that this individual denies the Holocaust, doesn't believe man walked on the moon, believes that the earth is flat, admits to killing JFK, and all this will complete the poor thing's mental profile.

    1. What's the point of going through all that I wonder. I mean, nobody uses their real name on the internet, I get that. But why create all these alias's , and pretend to be a girl when you are a guy, things like that? If you want to be an anal orifice and go around insulting people until they block you, do you need a bunch of different identities to do that?

      I am pretty sure that what the fellow who left that post about "Sara" and his/her other personalities is right. It certainly jives with the events that transpired after I left some positive comments on Yael's blog.

      I guess you can never be sure of anything on the internet.

  15. I figured if this went on long enough, something like this would be the result. Just didn't think it would happen today thoough

    Nadine, Sara, Adrian, or whatever its name really is, appears to be some fruitcake Brownshirt bent on stirring the pot wherever it goes. Nothing but a troll.

    1. Mentally ill. I can't think of any other reason. I see no practical value to masquerading as someone or something you aren't, but I know it's a common practice on the internet.
