Clueless jack asses

Dear mindless slogan spewing drones,

Yes “All lives do matter”.   If you’re legitimately offended by that you are totally clueless.  Although I really suspect that you are simply a low functioning person incapable of independent thought past your righteous indignation at those with the ability to go a out their lives with rational individual thoughts and a grasp of the real world concepts at a functional level.

Fuck you,

The POTR

I awaken….. slowly.

The long slumber is ending.  Facebook exile is in affect still of course.  I’ll try to set up a page vs personal account there for cross posting.  Most of my self imposed exile was due to a job switch that correspond with the death of my main computer used for this site’s management and maintenance.  But that’s calming down now.  So you can expect a nice drunken rant this weekend.  I just haven’t settled on the topic yet.  As abject stupid abounds lately I’m torn between politics, race baiting or general populace retardation.  Decisions decisions.

Goodbye Sweden

Originally posted on THE SWEDEN REPORT:

This is the last post on this blog. I am leaving Sweden for good shortly, and will no longer be following its descent from what was once the third most prosperous country in the world. Frankly, it’s just too damn depressing.

I was born and raised in Sweden, which leaves a cultural mark even though I moved to USA in the 1990s and have spent the better part of my adult life as an American. Coming back for a few years has been a shocking experience.

When I was a child, Sweden was a dull yet very safe place to live. Yes, there was a heavy blanket of socialism and collectivist values covering everything, but there was a core of pragmatism beneath the redness. The intention and goal was always to benefit the citizens, even though they went about things in a backwards manner.

Memorial Day – For the “graves of our comrades” we remember

Memorial Day Order

*General Orders No. 11, Grand Army of the Republic Headquarters[1].

I. The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land. In this observance no form or ceremony is prescribed, but Posts and comrades will, in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit.

We are organized, Comrades, as our regulations tell us, for the purpose among other things, “of preserving and strengthening those kind and fraternal feelings which have bound together the soldiers sailors and marines, who united to suppress the late rebellion.” What can aid more to assure this result than by cherishing tenderly the memory of our heroic dead? We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance. All that the consecrated wealth and taste of the nation can add to their adornment and security, is but a fitting tribute to the memory of her slain defenders. Let pleasant paths invite the coming and going of reverent visitors and fond mourners. Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic.


If other eyes grow dull and other hinds slack, and other hearts cold in the solemn trust, ours shall keep it well as long as the light and warmth of life remain in us.

Let us, then, at the time appointed, gather around their sacred remains, and garland the passionless mounds above them with choicest flowers of springtime; let us raise above them the dear old flag they saved; let us in this solemn presence renew our pledge to aid and assist those whom they have left among us a sacred charge upon the Nation’s gratitude—the soldier’s and sailor’s widow and orphan.

II. It is the purpose of the Commander in Chief to inaugurate this observance with the hope that it will be kept up from year to year, while a survivor of the war remains to honor the memory of his departed comrades. He earnestly desires the public press to call attention to this Order, and lend its friendly aid in bringing it to the notice of comrades in all parts of the country in time for simultaneous compliance therewith.

courage

III. Department commanders will use every effort to make this Order effective.

By Command of:

John A. Logan

Commander in Chief
