Frith and Honor

I have enjoyed reading MountainGuerilla for several years because he has a way of getting right to the heart of the matter with no BS. His tone and choice of wording matches the cadence of every great SF First Sargent I have ever known. In his most recent article on building tribe, he addresses a serious issue of concern about
how the people you know, will impact your group during the coming upheavals in this world. If you think having a tribe you trust is not important for the future, then I invite you to enjoy your myopic land, go back to sniffing rainbow unicorn-farts and keep drinking the koolaid they dispense to you. Don't bother reading further. MountainGuerilla would phrase that a little differently in medical language which uses the word, rectum.

"Tribes and clans are based on shared morals and world views. Trying to base them on convenience or the material possessions of one member of the group being enough to support the rest of the group is not tribe, and it’s not going to work under stress.

Simply claiming someone as a tribe member though, based solely on what they claim to be their beliefs is insufficient. Character has been defined as “what you do when no one is looking.” Morals can be defined the same way. Do you KNOW what the values and morals are of the people you expect to trust with the lives of your family? “Oh, they’re III like me!” doesn’t cut it in reality. How many of the cowards who lined up to register their firearms in Connecticut are walking around with a III patch on their jacket, or are reading blogs like this, talking shit about how they’ll never give up?

You have to possess a shared sense of the importance of Frith and Honor, regardless of the labels you use to define it, or your tribe is as useless as a bunch of individuals with no common goals can be. "

Westboro Baptist Church Goes To Mississippi – And Loses

On Saturday April 16th, USMC Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers, who was killed in action in Afghanistan April 7, was buried in Brandon, Mississippi...Why weren’t there protestors?

Planning ahead by the locals, as it turns out.

From an Ole Miss sports message board, a tidbit of information…

A couple of days before, one of them (Westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed. Police were called and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to remember anything about what had happened.

Rankin County handled this thing perfectly. There were many things that were put into place that most will never know about and at great expense to the county.

Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking lot. It seems that certain Rankin county pickup trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was over. Police were called but their wrecker service was running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they could tow the trucks so the Kansas plated cars could get out.

A few made it to the funeral but were ushered away to be questioned about a crime they might have possibly been involved in. Turns out, after a few hours of questioning, that they were not involved and they were allowed to go on about their business.
