In December 2013, secretly riddled with terminal cancer but in stridently active denial, Michele St. Pierre rode with Richard Finegold down Interstate 5 toward Southern California to visit her mother. As I write this today, in 2015 (from a booth in the corner of Roseburg, Oregon’s Elmer’s Restaurant), I am retracing a large portion of their trip elmer-s-restaurant(to the tune of about 1,500 miles) while reconstructing circumstances surrounding her death (and its immediate, violent aftermath). It has given me vivid recollections of this trip’s meaning… a meaning I discovered in 2006 and republish here, in honor of Michele’s memory.

I spent more than 14 hours behind the wheel the last few days.

Never in France light 2Driving interstate in America invokes poetry. The popular artists of my generation were those on whose watch, and under whose influence, occurred the near fatal wounding of our culture. Nevertheless, there was an almost universal recognition among them of a kind of magic they all experienced on our great highways, observing the home of the brave as it passed beneath their floorboards, borne forward on wheels empowered by the energy of abundant “fossil” fuels.

A Delegation of state legislators, lead by Washington State Representative Matt Shea, along with a delegation of current serving Sheriffs, lead by Sheriff Richard Mack of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, and military and police members of Oath Keepers, are converging on the site of a stand-off between federal law enforcement and Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy, to prevent bloodshed and to stand in defense of hardworking rural Americans who are under assault by a runaway federal government.

A single word woke him.

It was “loud,” though inaudible, and clear, though it was spoken in a language that he not only didn’t know, but had never heard. It sounded harsh and refined like Russian or German but a tongue no one on Earth had ever spoken.

As he reflected, lying there in the darkness, he understood it to be his own name.  Somehow.

He quickly suspected his awakening was angelic. He forgot the word, itself, in seconds.

He responded in the same, inaudible manner, but in his own language, “What do you want?”

There was no answer.

It was as if waking him were the only objective and had been accomplished.

He arose and began thinking.

The socialist/communist/fascist left in America has played on the public sympathy too long. The soothing liberal violins of pity have suddenly reached a screaming, raging crescendo of incessant greed.

bureaucratsMore and more people are waking up. It may be the economic meltdown and the loss of the 3 Rs – Real Estate, Retirement, and Riches. It may be that their child turns to them and spouts some incredible pap that they learned in their commie school. It may be that they see one too many lies on their television. How many lies does it take to break the camel’s back, and make  sheeple into a people? It may be that some of THEIR rights are being infringed upon, not just their neighbor’s. (more…)

Who will give back the half million dollars the Stormans family had to spend to defend their Constitutional rights from Rob McKenna?
from Kendra Setlow:

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.

~ Abraham Lincoln

Rob McKenna is NOT the friend of Constitutional conservatives…he is “PRO-CHOICE” in his own words and what you see and hear is NOT what you are going to get unless you like RINOS.

In other words, he just chips away at our freedoms while assuring us he is our friend…He puts power politics before principles. If we don’t stand up for ourselves and our state, then we deserve what we get.

ACTION ALERT: Bill Requiring Mandatory Insurance for Abortion Advances In the Legislature.

By John Geis

The Washington State Legislature (WSL) is moving a bill that forces all individuals to purchase and all businesses sell abortion insurance coverage on a maternity plan. This is clearly an attempt to impose a state abortion mandate at the hands and under the direct bidding of Planned Parenthood and NARAL. (more…)
