December 14, 2012 – As parents, Lindsay and I are deeply saddened by the horrible events that have occurred in Newtown, Conn. today.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire town. -The Roycroft Family
November 8, 2012 – As my friend, comedian @MrGeorgeWallace is famous for saying, “I be thinkin…”
I be thinkin bout this election and how it is going to affect my family. Seems to me that since I am out numbered by people who obviously want a piece of my life, I should take some steps to protect my stuff.
I’m in the market for a hand gun that would be suitable for my wife to carry. It won’t be a new one because that would leave a paper trail. Only third party gun purchases for me. No sense in giving big bro more ammo for when they come looking for my guns. I have no plan to hand over my personal weapons to the Feds. In fact, they can kiss my raunchy white ass should they ever try. It ain’t happening!
Need to join the NRA and get behind them since they are the only folks that seem to really give a damn about my rights today.
Gonna stop worrying so much about politics and just live life as best I can under the circumstances. Lets face it, come 2016, the state of our Republic won’t change. We’ve already passed the point where the non producers out number the producers. They’ve all figured out how to vote and work the system to make their lives as less complicated and easy as possible, at our expense. They finally figured out how to use the government as a means of plunder, and they do it quite well.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are upon us and I’ll be thankful for all that I have, because I did it all without putting my hand in someone elses pocket. You’re welcome. I’m a proud American and earned what I have. I’m not rich, but far from being poor. I do on occasion choose who I want to share my wealth with. One of my favorite things to do is catch a soldier or cop that’s behind me at a drive thru. I pay the cashier for their order and drive off. You should try it sometime. I’m very thankful for what they do.
I’m also thankful for having lived the majority of my life in a country built on morals and values and respected around much of the world as a nation of people who will fight and die for anyone’s right to live free. Sadly, those days seem to be over. We are no longer viewed as that great and powerful nation who saves the world. Within our own boundaries we live in disgust of our leader and his objectives. Our freedoms being systematically taken away with the full support of his followers. Makes no logical sense why anyone would support a person who has done so much damage, then give him a second chance to multiply his failures. They aren’t bright enough to understand what is being done to them. Someone needs to sit them down and read a book to them- “How do you kill a million people?” This book should be mandatory reading in elementary schools across the country. They remind me if Jim Jones and his Kool Aid drinking zombies. Remember him? He’s the guy that made Kool Aid famous.
I learned very early in life about the dangers of dictators and losing your freedoms to an oppressive government. When I was seven years old we lived in Berlin. I lived there before and after the Berlin Wall was built, and was there during the Berlin crisis and the Cuban Missile crisis. Scary times living the life as an Army brat. Nothing wakes you up like the sounds of tanks rolling down your street on a mission to kill an enemy who lives just blocks away from you, or watching soldiers with loaded machine guns at the ready for war in you own front yard.
Then it was Vietnam. Some of my friends lost their fathers in that mess. I was one of the lucky ones. A mess that changed everything for America. Vietnam created a new breed of people that spit in the faces of returning soldiers. Some of those disgusting people are in control of our government now. The Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry types. Yea, nice crowd. So yes, I have some understanding and appreciation of living in a country free of dictators and oppression. I love my country, even as screwed up as she’s become.
America is sick right now, but with patience and an understanding of why she became sick we can make her strong again. We can’t lose hope. Our children need us to stay strong and keep fighting for her life. In time, those who helped make her sick will also become victims of their own doing. When that happens they will come to us for aid and comfort. They will understand that when a nation of hard working people is brought to their knees with nothing left to take, only then will they realize how important we are to their own survival. Without us they are nothing. Only the strong will survive this war between the classes.
I have nothing against helping your fellow man as long as it’s not done by force at the point of a gun. That’s where we are today. Our Federal government has way too much power over us now. Way too much.
Now we need to focus on our local elections. It all started there at the local level. Those idiots didn’t just wake up one morning to find themselves running our lives. We helped put them there. Now it’s time to start over. We all are responsible for this great big cluster fornication. Democrats, Republicans, Conservatives, and Libertarians. There’s plenty of blame to go around this time.
I’m done with worrying about Obama and his mindless followers. My number one priority is my family. The shock of election day is over, the healing process begins. Time to move on. -JRoycroft
Aug 1, 2012 – Today is the big day to show your support of Dan Cathy by visiting your local Chick-fil-A, which a whole lot of people did.
I’m quite sure that Dan Cathy is sitting some where with a great big smile on his face knowing that by the end of business today he will probably have set some kind of sales record, thanks in part to the protest by those scary little gay people and that fool of a Mayor in Chicago, who I heard was having an affair with that minister from Westboro Baptist church. I find it funny as shit how the whole thing back-fired right in their faces. So hows that protest workin out for ya now, huh?
Now for my rant about some of the absolutely disgusting things I’ve been reading from folks on both sides of the gay rights/Christian values argument.
Let me be perfectly clear. I am not taking sides with either group. Both sides have enough blame to go around and both have their share of garbage to be taken out.
For starters, I ran across a comment on Facebook just a few minutes ago that came from some idiot named Emma who was responding to Dan Cathy expressing his views on same sex marriage and Christian values by saying, ”Out of respect to everyone they should keep it to themselves.” That’s fine Emma, so it’s ok for you to have an opinion but not Dan Cathy? You are so typical.
Lets cut to the chase folks, unless of course you’re a gay pushing your gay rights agenda down everyone’s throat and crying every damn time you aren’t recognized, then the rest of us are expected to keep our mouths shut. Right?
Ok, I get it. You are so damned typical. Look around, life sucks for some folks. Read the hateful comments coming from your gay supporters. Read what you posted and change it around. Your comment works both ways you ignorant little fool. I don’t want to be exposed to you shoving your tongue down your friends throat no more than I want some religious zealot shoving their morals in my face. Get over yourselves. For once in your pathetic miserable life try living your life without crying because someone doesn’t like you. No one, NO ONE is free from criticism in this world. If you don’t like Chick-fil-A then don’t eat there. If you can’t deal with the pressures of society then go climb back into your damn closet in a fetal position sucking your thumb or what ever and SHUT THE F–K UP! Some of us are just a little sick and damn tired of idiots like you. The only difference between you and some religious zealot is your sexual preference. You’re both irritating little brats that most of us are getting sick and damn tired of.
Both of you groups listen up! If you want folks to take you seriously then try for once in your life to accept the fact that you are different and some folks are going to take notice, point and laugh. Just like they would if you were fat, ugly, crippled or any number of other reasons. Get over yourselves. Sometimes it just sucks to be you.
I happen to be as straight as I can be, except maybe, well sometimes I think I may be a lesbian trapped in a mans body, but that’s neither here nor there.
So here we all are bitching, moaning and groaning because we don’t like the gay lifestyle or we don’t like Christian values. What the hell are we to do about it? What??
How about we all just live and let live. Both sides need to grow up and get over yourselves. It’s never gonna change.
Whats the one thing we all have in common today? What is the one thing that affects each and everyone of us as Americans? Think about that for a while.
Here we all are fighting over how someone else should be living their lives. What harm is being done to you if Dan Cathy believes in Christian values? What harm is being done to you if Joe marries Sam or Emma marries Beth? How in the hell does one affect the other? It doesn’t. Neither of you are having your rights violated by anyone.
There is enough blame to go around for each of you. If you remove the labels the arguments are the same. You disagree because you are different. Welcome to the real world.
Now back to my question. What do we all have in common today?
We are all in danger of losing everything we’ve fought and died for in our country.
There in our White House sits an occupier, a devout Marxist who doesn’t give a rats ass about any of us. He doesn’t give a damn whether you are gay, black, white, pink or green. All he cares about is how much of your money he can take from you and give to that lazy moocher over there. He cares only about his power to rule over you.
Folks, the time has come that we all wake up and pay attention to what is really important in our lives. Our future as a free American society is nearing an end as we’ve grown to know it. Are we going to continue this fight over trivial bull shit? And in the grand scheme of things, it really is trivial bullshit.
Why can’t you folks just sit down and shut up long enough to realize that the world is not going to end because you disagree with your neighbors.
The world as we know it today will come to an end if we don’t come together and start paying attention to the important things in our lives.
Save your energy for a fight that means something to the future of our society. There will be plenty of time to express our personal views on religion and gay rights later… Maybe. -JRoycroft
