Celebrating the Second Amendment

This here is my first post to the blog and I am so proud James has allowed me to perticipate. I just wanted to let yall know that I won't be postin' none of that intyllectual stuff. Mostly I'll just be reportin' what goes on around here and tryin' to keep that big-headed James in his place case he gets too big for his britches which he does from time to time if you don't watch it. Anyway, James said we should do somethin' special to celebrate that there Supreme Court ruling about us individuals having the right to keep and bear guns for our own personal defense, pleasure, or to keep them IRS *^%$#@#'s from gettin' too frisky.

Note from James: As part of Eustace's on-going education and acclimation into civilized society I will be educating him as to when and where a citizen can lawfully use firearms and, as yet, he does not fully comprehend all of its nuances. Needless to say, we at The Manic Eclectic do not advocate the use of lethal force against any civil servant until and unless (a) said civil servant is acting in violation of our lawful and constitutional rights and (b) all civil and litigious means of protecting said rights have been exhausted. But this is Eustace's post so I will now allow him to carry on.

Anyway, James said we needed to celebrate and what better way to celebrate than by whoopin' it up real good with our guns! Woohoo! Of course, the bad part about shootin' with James is he won't let me bring a case of Keystone Light. Fact, James won't let me drink at all while we's a shootin' and let me tell you it ain't nearly as fun, but tends to be a bit more safer for the limbs and lives of them that's celebratin'.

So there we was just a shootin' up a storm--tin cans, whiskey bottles, newspaper pictures of Hillary, you-name-it. Then James says we need to take out one of them old trucks we got up on blocks in the back pasture. This is the truck before we started shootin' at it.



But before we started shootin' James get all patriotic and starts a quotin' some of them what he calls our founders. You should a seen him. He gets all glassy-eyed a lookin', takes his hat off, puts it over his heart and goes off like this:

"Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?"--Patrick Henry

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined."--Patrick Henry

"Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"--Patrick Henry

"We are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of Nature has placed in our power... the battle, sir, is not to the strong alone it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave."--Patrick Henry

"The Bible is worth all the other books which have ever been printed."--Patrick Henry

"The great object is that every man be armed."--
Patrick Henry

At that, James put back on his hat and I commenced to shootin'. Check out what I did to that old truck in honor of ol' Pat Hinry.


Now who said rednecks ain't got skills? Huh?
