For your eyes only! Barack Obama stands behind Big Bird because he is one. Yellow, fluttering, bird-brained. Children's Hour is over, Barry. We're going to wheel you and your clowns away.

True considering that as you aptly point out, Ferguson invented a breech-loading rifle years before King's Mountain and presented it to Britain's army. London's War Office, however, ignored it -- not unlike unimaginative military establishments worldwide, who notoriously distrust innovation. Ferguson's invention was stalled, going nowhere. His death changed nothing. Breech-loading British Enfields finally appeared in small numbers 80-years later, during the U.S. Civil War, but neither the North nor the South recognized their importance.

"Shout like hell and fight like devils!" cried Colonel Campbell to his men. Known ever after as the "Ghost Troop," the grim rebels fought their way up King's Mountain Indian-style, taking cover from tree to tree. Three British bayonet charges died away as the frontiersmen fell back, regrouped, and climbed higher; tomahawks were easier to wield in the undergrowth. An hour later Ferguson lay dead, his entire force killed, wounded, or captured. Angry Tennesseans avenged Loyalist and Tory atrocities by refusing to accept immediate surrender, and nine of the renegade leaders were later executed. The Over-Mountain Men stood around the Colonel’s corpse and peed on it. A similar fate awaits America's Libtard Betrayers on November 6.
Since when do unions, or anyone else, have a "right" to reach into my pocket and grab money that I choose not to give them? Just because a bunch a political gangsters passes a law, holding a gun to my head, doesn't make these automatic dues deductions right. They're merely highway robbery with a police escort, and when used to fund causes I don't agree with, which fasten the collar of tyranny tighter around my neck, they are not only immoral, but undermine honest citizens' respect for the government and the law. Forced unionism and forced dues collection are subversive of freedom and justice. It's about time this outrage came to a screeching halt.
Ethnic heritage is not to be dismissed lightly; it's who we are. My parents told me we were from Ireland, a family tradition for four generations. Nope! We now know from a DNA test that we're Danish Vikings. They came from Normandy, France, to England in 1066, and lived in County Wiltshire for 600 years before emigrating to Virginia in 1654. My great-grandfather commanded the Irish Brigade against Britain in the Boer War. Talk about identity crisis! We have western cousins who "don't want to hear it." Tough. The big issue with Elizabeth Warren, beyond her dishonest, unmerited self-promotion through the disgrace of "affirmative action," is that she lies to herself. We rely on government to tell the truth. Warren is unfit for office.
