The Discovery of the New World

Written by:Gary Wonning

The Muslims and Christians have been fighting for centuries, it has been an on-going battle that has continued through the millennia.

During that time period, Muslim pirate Barbarossa wrecked havoc in the Mediterranean, raiding the coasts of France, Italy, and Spain, carrying away thousands of Europeans into slavery. In the process,Muslim Turks had conquered the Byzantine Empire,  u were invading Serbia, Hungary, and Bulgaria. Suleiman’s armies surrounded Vienna, Austria, in 1529. For centuries Arab, Turkish, Mughal and Afghan conquerors killed  millions of Hindus and Sikhs in India and the East.

The Spanish soldier proved to be the most successful champion in defending Christendom. Spain’s King Ferdinand put a halt to the 700-year Muslim occupation of western Europe. Using gold from the New World, Spain was able to push back the Muslim invaders on land and sea.

It was during this time, the Europeans began running out of resources to fight the good fight. At the risk of Europe being over run and conquered by the invaders, new sources of revenue had to be found and found quickly.

Hearing of vast sources of gold and other valuable resources to the west, their attention naturally turned to discovering ways of tapping into this perceived wealth.

The Spanish at that time were one of the major leaders in the world so the task fell to them to explore the new world.

The natives of the America’s had never advanced their civilization one iota over the last ten thousand years and thus had none of the modern conveniences or technology the Europeans, Chinese, Tuks or others possessed, so it was just a matter of time before they were conquered by someone, at the time, the Spanish were the most powerful.

There is a lesson to be learned here for everyone when we don’t advance our learning and knowledge, sooner or later another culture will overtake us and destroy our way of life.

True Patriots Defend Their Homeland

Written by; Gary Wonning

For better or worse, true patriots defend their homeland.

As Americans, we have all immigrated to America from somewhere else, even the American Indians originally came here from somewhere else.

Most of us immigrated to this country for a better life for ourselves and our families, and to escape oppression in our homeland.

In today’s world, things haven’t changed much, thousands still flock to  our homeland for a chance at a better life than is possible anywhere else on earth.

But, the one thing that has changed is the  motive of many who come here. Many people no longer want a better life, they come here to destroy our way of life and exert their will on us. 

In the past, over the millennia, people have immigrated to many lands for the same reason. For better or worse, they have tried to improve their lot in life.

Those times are coming to an end, there is no longer anywhere to go. The world has gotten smaller and as my ancestors were so correct in saying, when you leave your troubles behind, they arrive at where you are going and are waiting for you upon your arrival.

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

You cannot escape whatever you are dealing with by running away. You need to face up to it. The refugees today are only bringing their problems with them and making them our problems. 

They are slowly discovering, once they are here there is nowhere to turn. They look in their own backyard and standing in front of them are the very issues they fled from.

Americans don’t have anywhere to go, and besides, true patriots don’t flee, they stand up and fight for their freedom, liberty, and beliefs. You can’t continuously keep running from the issues, it doesn’t work. 

How much better would it be for the refugees who fled their country to organize, go back and improve their own country? Retake it from those who would do evil.

Wouldn’t that be a better solution?

Many people who immigrate would much rather live in their homeland if it were possible.

How free are you if you are unable to live where you want?

How free are you if you can’t travel where you want?

Freedom is a battle that never ends, Americans fought and died for it, it’s time for the rest of the world to do the same.

The War on Terror , A New Direction

Art Prints

I am over 60, and the Armed Forces thinks I’m too old to track down terrorists. You can’t be older than 42 to join the military. They’ve got the whole thing ass-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year-olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn’t be able to join a military unit until you’re at least 35.

For starters, researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

Young guys haven’t lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. My back hurts! I can’t sleep. I’m tired and hungry. We are impatient and maybe letting us kill some asshole that desperately deserves it will make us feel better and shut us up for a while.

An 18-year-old doesn’t even like to get up before 10 a.m. Old guys always get up early to pee, so what the hell? Besides, like I said, I’m tired and can’t sleep and since I’m already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical son-of-a-bitch.

If captured we couldn’t spill the beans because we’d forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number would be a real brain teaser.

Boot camp would be easier for old guys. We’re used to getting screamed and yelled at. Female drill sergeants? That just adds to the reality. And we’re used to soft food. We’ve also developed an appreciation for guns. We’ve been using them for years as an excuse to get out of the house, away from the screaming and yelling….

They could lighten up on the obstacle course, however. I’ve been in combat and didn’t see a single 20-foot wall with rope hanging over the side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing basic training.

Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. I’ve never seen anyone outrun a bullet.

An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He’s still learning to shave, to start up a conversation with a pretty girl. Heck: they still haven’t figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to shade their eyes, not the back of their heads. Dumbasses!

These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm’s way.

Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten coward terrorists. The last thing an enemy would want to see right now is a couple of million pissed-off old farts with attitude and automatic weapons who know that
their best years are already well behind them.

church and state

There has been much debate over the years about what the founding fathers meant about the separation of church and state. In recent times there has been much disinformation about how they actually believed, especially George Washington. In this short Ebook the author tries to explain how they actually felt.
