Wow, it’s July already. Where does the time go?
A little pep talk from the original Thomas Paine, courtesy of Q.

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. – Thomas Paine
And why is this conflict so trying and confounding? An outstanding piece of long-time investigative reporting shared by Cuppa Covfefe pretty much tells the tale of how the opposing troops were prepared.
Okay, some travelling music on this journey we call life, and a reminder that under cover operations are incredibly dangerous.
And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:
Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.
Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
In addition, it is requested that there be no swinging from the chandeliers, celebratory gunfire, messing around with the nuclear weapons, and, please, everyone wash your hands.
Please, do not forget to apply sunscreen after a sensible amount of time in the sun so as to beef up the level of vitamin D in the system.
Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.
Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree which is currently going through its water cooler/canteen phase. Please, venture over there for any such thoughts and comments. This sort of thing is always a possibility on that site:
American mainstream media sorts are holding out on some really interesting information of what’s going on in the world. A pox on them.
A few other vital notes:
Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.
Ridiculing the other side, on the other hand…well….
From Chapter 5 of the Prophecy of Amos:
 Seek ye the Lord, and live: lest the house of Joseph be burnt with fire, and it shall devour, and there shall be none to quench Bethel.  You that turn judgment into wormwood, and forsake justice in the land,  Seek him that maketh Arcturus, and Orion, and that turneth darkness into morning, and that changeth day into night: that calleth the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is his name.  He that with a smile bringeth destruction upon the strong, and waste upon the mighty.  They have hated him that rebuketh in the gate: and have abhorred him that speaketh perfectly.
 Therefore because you robbed the poor, and took the choice prey from him: you shall build houses with square stone, and shall not dwell in them: you shall plant most delightful vineyards, and shall not drink the wine of them.  Because I know your manifold crimes, and your grievous sins: enemies of the just, taking bribes, and oppressing the poor in the gate.  Therefore the prudent shall keep silence at that time, for it is an evil time.  Seek ye good, and not evil, that you may live: and the Lord the God of hosts will be with you, as you have said.  Hate evil, and love good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be the Lord the God of hosts may have mercy on the remnant of Joseph.
 Therefore thus saith the Lord the God of hosts the sovereign Lord: In every street there shall be wailing: and in all places that are without, they shall say: Alas, alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as are skillful in lamentation to lament.  And in all vineyards there shall be wailing: because I will pass through in the midst of thee, saith the Lord.  Woe to them that desire the day of the Lord: to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.  As if a man should flee from the face of a lion, and a bear should meet him: or enter into the house, and lean with his hand upon the wall, and a serpent should bite him.  Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light: and obscurity, and no brightness in it?
 I hate, and have rejected your festivities: and I will not receive the odour of your assemblies.  And if you offer me holocausts, and your gifts, I will not receive them: neither will I regard the vows of your fat beasts.  Take away from me the tumult of thy songs: and I will not hear the canticles of thy harp.  But judgment shall be revealed as water, and justice as a mighty torrent.  Did you offer victims and sacrifices to me in the desert for forty years, O house of Israel?
 But you carried a tabernacle for your Moloch, and the image of your idols, the star of your god, which you made to yourselves.  And I will cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord, the God of hosts is his name.
As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

Are we ready for the fireworks?
