good point about the consequences from the debacle for MAGA hat wearing, Ext.

imagine what would happen to a red hat that said "Make Jesus Great Again". Hell, "Put Christ Back in Christmas" would draw some heat.

not even an AOC "She" t-shirt has any where near the incendiary value of a MAGA hat.

TK: "No chance he is doing this of his own free will?"

those aren't mutually exclusive. my post to Ext re what i mean by being played has everything to do with one's free will being misapplied.

and as a result, one can be manipulated. Old Man is basically using his free will to lie to himself. oh well.

there's a McCartney tune that covers this:

"That was your first mistake. You took your lucky break and broke it in two. Now what can be done for you. You broke it in two."

Free will being the lucky break.... we are all responsible for ourselves and what we choose. Choices can be explained--- but never *AWAY*.

If Nancy Pelosi thinks that Walls are “immoral,” why isn’t she requesting that we take down all of the existing Walls between the U.S. and Mexico, even the new ones just built in San Diego at their very strong urging. Let millions of unchecked “strangers” just flow into the U.S.

Thank you Kev, and I apologize for the diss on pipe holders earlier. There are a lot of people that you describe in the recovery movement, the vast majority trying to atone or give back.

Some go overboard and their recovery becomes their identity, I think it is about balance, which is very hard to achieve for any of us.

The critical factor is that when someone falls down, you offer a hand up. Don't enable whatever you do, but remember that recovery is a process with ups and downs.

"I don't understand all this peace-pipe stuff... sounds very special. Huh. Sorta like VooDoo--does it exist if you don't believe it? What does it matter?"

that's pretty deep coming from you, Sandy Daze.

as a baptized practicing Catholic AND a pipe carrier, i can assure you the two aren't mutually exclusive.

the reference to the pipe that's "carried" isn't anywhere near your stereotyping conception of a "peace pipe"; and, the association of it with voodoo is just plain ignorant.

ignorance doesn't offend me as much as it prompts me to disabuse the bearer of it.

i've always found it an unflattering trait among humans when we conduct ourselves like goats: what we can't eat (understand) we shit on.

One more thing, Sandy Daze:

THIS: "Someone can put that in their pipe and smoke it if they would like. Do with it what they will. They will wind up wherever they will ultimately.

I was a senior in HS in 1973 and registered for the draft. I remember the day of the very last lottery and knew there wasn't a chance of me being drafted, still in HS. I could have enlisted but to be honest, with night after night of horrible war stories on the news, I was happy I wasn't going to Vietnam. In retrospect, I wish I had enlisted.

I’m picking up what you’re putting down there I think. I was raised Protestant but grew away from organized religions, but still have a belief in an ultimate creator in my way. I occasionally find the need to remind my Catholic wife (kind of like you reminded Sandy) that in a slightly different context, she’d sound like the nutcase.

But in the sense of rendering unto god/Caesar aren’t we entitled to wish some temporal “correction” on him and others like him regardless of any other punishments that may be in play, and who/what may be motivating him? In the same general sense that I’m entitled to kill someone who’s trying to kill me, I don’t need to care who/what may be behind it, I just need to stop that threat.

Plus, what MM said a few posts up.

My first husband was in the AF Security Service mainly due to enlisting in order to avoid the draft and Viet Nam. (1966-68).

I lost classmates in Viet Nam. I had friends whose lives were screwed up due to that war.

I think that is why Tucker Carlson, who has a son in his late teens or early 20's, gets so upset at the neocons.

Bill Kristol doesn't have a son who might get drafted and sent to the Sandbox. Neither does Max Boot, David French, or the rest of those losers. They see troops as expendables. Well, screw that.

The war ended tragically but strategically I've read Stratford reports that stated it served its purpose by delaying the fall of a domino long enough to upset the commie applecart. Whether or not that's true, you can look at the world today and say "well yeah". But Jack's right to hold the feet of our Presidents to the fire for not being leaders in how they prosecuted it.

"But in the sense of rendering unto god/Caesar aren’t we entitled to wish some temporal “correction” on him and others like him regardless of any other punishments that may be in play, and who/what may be motivating him?"

we are inclined to seek justice against injustice and we are morally compelled to protect ourselves from those who would do us harm.

the point about Old Man and his role as elder and pipe carrier is this: those designations come with much responsibility--- and the bearer is accountable to more than just civil or criminal justice, not a substitution for temporal consequences in the courts or at the wrong end of a weapon.

we've banished people for doing things such as what Old Man has done. his appearance at the pipeline protests was hocum. there was no basis for that disruption other than tribal councils squeezing the feds for payola to secure their cooperation.

and as unlikely that it is Old Man won't be held accountable by courts for his involvement in the DC charade, it is certain that he has hell to pay for his abuses *IN THIS LIFETIME.*

we had a ceremonial dancer at one of our high ceremonies that required him to pierce his flesh and hang from the Tree. big time sacrifice. he stepped into that ceremony even though he was dealing crystal meth back home on the rez.

he contracted gangrene from his piercing wounds. died two weeks later.

these things we've been given are not to be f*cked with. Old Man knows this. but he's weak.

and he'll be corrected.

"I would caution you to be a little bit leery of jumping into giving him 100% backing until more evidence comes forth."

MM:

slow down your reading of what i've put up here.

it's off-base to say i am "giving him 100% backing until more evidence comes forth."

i have not been backing him. i've been reporting on "his game" and how he is misusing his "standing" in tribal and political circles.

he's dead wrong. and although he may never pay penalties to an American justice system court, he will reap the whirlwind for his abuses, far more devastating to himself than anything imaginable.

it's how it works for Red Road Charlatans. you can trust this. calling him a liar and a bunch of names is all well and good. but it doesn't help anybody understand beyond the "that's the end of that" approach to fellow Americans who are being used by our Enemies Within, to the point they themselves become enemies too.

for him to redeem himself, Old Man would have to make serious amends for the harm he's wrought with his dark medicine. would his amends even make sense if we stayed at our current level of misunderstanding of how a person like Old Man could go so far into the ditch? of how our enemies can destroy our fellow Americans to that degree.

we need every man. and after they're punished for misdeeds, then what? abandon them to the Enemy.

this is about numbers. and we need to know why their numbers are morally vulnerable like Old Man.

Yes, I know the draft ended and that a very small portion of the populace carries the burden of serving.

What I was trying to point out is that Tucker Carlson has a son of that age and he feels the sacrifice viscerally of those kids who do not come back, because they are the age of his boy.

What gets me going are the attitudes of those like Kristol, Boot and others, because they seem to think that the troops (made up of those groups who don't attend Beltway soirees) are simply expendable pegs in a table top war game. I think Carlson feels the same way.

KK--you seem to think that it is important that we all understand where Phillips is coming from and walk a mile in his shoes. I don't know what a "pipe carrier" is, never in my entire life heard the phrase before Yesterday, despite all of your hints that such a thing should command respect, and you crassly dismiss Maryrose for "not knowing anything. Well put me in the same category as Maryrose.

I don't care about Phillips and I don't want to care about Phillips. He's not a victim. He's a guy who behaved like an asshole and then doubled down at the expense of innocent young men, for his own self-aggrandizement.

If you want to nurture his soul and understand his torment, have at it. As far as I'm concerned he is a charlatan and a coward, who deliberately put himself in the public eye in that specific role.

He gets none of my sympathy and none of my time. I don't need to know what a "pipe carrier" is, and if it is something that should engender respect then shame on him for tarnishing it. Pardon my ignorance but just because a grandstanding native american makes an ass of himself is not a reason to shame anyone for not understanding his culture.

My dearly departed neighbor told me about when I40 was being surveyed to come through here. A guy told him it was going to be right on top of his back yard. My neighbor told him there's a graveyard back there with uninscribed markers so the interstate makes a jog around it because you can't move remains if you don't know who they are. That law may exist because of Indians.

He was also a party to a class action federal lawsuit. The governor at the time was from the next county over and all the landowners who ceded land to the interstate got considerably larger offers for their land than the people in my county.

I think what follows is a particularly well-wrought conclusion to an excellent article at American Greatness*:

The young men were there first and they had every right to be there. Why should they leave? Would conservatives have been more pleased if the young men had run crying to their mothers and chaperones? How can we say we want our sons to become men while telling them men are never supposed to stand up for anything because it is “bad manners”? When do our conservative betters think we should stand our ground?

Many of us seem to have forgotten, but being a conservative man didn’t always mean running away. I think of young men at West Point singing

“men of freedom, stand ye steady, those who hate are ever ready…free men never yield.”

I think of John Stuart Mill’s line that

“A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”

Conservatives used to understand that a gentleman is one whose indignation is roused at appropriate times, not that it is never roused at all. Conservatives used to honor young men who stood their ground. They used to stand by them.

Watching the courageous young men is instructive. It tells us how we must be watchful about fake news. It shows us how we have to think for ourselves, since our “influencers” clearly don’t. And it teaches most of us a lesson about manliness.

The young men in the video, whatever their youthful exuberance and lack of awareness, did well in the moment of trial. A man doesn’t always know what is coming, but when trouble finds him and he is surprised, he should display the same instinctual resolve of the young man from Covington Catholic High School: stare evildoers in the face and stand your ground.

Hmmm...apparently my maternal grandpa dug up a set of Miwok remains while plowing a wheat field on the family ranch.
I never knew him because shortly before I was born he fell getting out of bed and broke his neck and croaked.

They used to play a ball game in Mesoamerica. The arenas had hoops high on the balls for the ball to go through. Not sure about scoring and rules but you can see these arenas at a lot of sites in Mexico and Belize.

The losers got the sudden death treatment. Not sure how long teams stayed together. The trading deadline was literal.

Well that's the roller ball management option I've suggested for Goodell ball.

According to this mom, Nathan Phillips and his mob first harassed a 15 year old girl.

We have received a lot of questions about Nathan Phillips’ actual service but until his military records come back, the best we could do is to look for a signature in the digital reference library known as the internet.

In a Forbes.com article, it states that Mr. Phillips “was placed in a foster home as a child and later joined the Marines and served in Vietnam.” However, this was not a direct quote from Nathan Phillips. This seemed to reference a Detroit Free Press article which emphasized Phillips’ life story.

On the other hand I was accused of bulldozing a manzanita field that was growing on a supposed Indian burial ground. I didn't turn up any bones and so far I get out of bed with only minimal difficulty nearly every morning.

Phillips' my life page just removed says he was born on 2/22/1955

he was born within 1 week of me and as I recall I did not have a Draft Number. My brother born in 1951 did.

Granddaughter called me from college to let me know she won another trivia contest based on my knowledge, this one being naming the 5 successors to the throne after Queen Elizabeth II! Woo hoo!

When Mrs. Buckeye's Swiss family came to the Northwest Territory right after the Revolutionary War (well before Ohio became a state), they found lots of artifacts on what became the family farm near Mt. Sterling, OH.

We know of some of those pieces in 2 different museums in the state.

Don't know of any mysterious deaths or mishaps, but a couple of cousins were pretty wacky:)
