At my post "More anecdotal "panic"", Tom has left the following post. In it, he has broken the code of Absolved and thus is deserving of repetition:
REAL Patriots have sheet metal brakes, CAD/CAM files and related machinery to make the files useful, lathes, milling machines, welders, a working knowledge of metallurgy, reloading and casting equipment, stocks of metals, a decent working knowledge of chemistry and no worries in the world other than the ethical dilemma of probably having to stomp on the fingers of people that are trying to board their ships without having anything to offer other than dragging their boat underwater.
The people that try to jump on lifeboats and beg food without having done their homework on how to swim when they had the legal chance to learn are the ones that are damned.I have no feelings for them but pity, and not much of that, truthfully.
FORGET TO SOW-->GET RAPED
They made the call.
TRUE Three Percenters aren't worried about much of anything as far as gear. If they can't keep cocaine and heroin out of the US I think primers will still be available also.The rest everybody should have learned by 10th grade anyway.
Several people have taken me to task for the creation of Will Shipman's boxcar in Absolved and jeered at the distribution of its bounty into the right hands at the right time.
The boxcar, gentle readers, is allegory.
What went into it? American arms, designed and built by Americans. Is there anything that I packed into that fictional boxcar that couldn't be made by reasonably intelligent Americans in the 21st Century using just the techniques and, more importantly, the attitude that Tom describes above?
WE hold the elements of the preservation of our liberties in our own hands and between our ears. WE are the "Arsenal of Republicanism," to paraphrase the Democrat pagan demigod FDR. Tom has expressed this succinctly.
In recognition of Tom's ability to break the liberty code that is at the heart of Absolve, I hereby confer upon him the title, Sipsey Street Irregular, if he is willing to accept it. We have no ranks in the Irregulars, or I'd make him an officer.
