The American cowboy - still saving lives. Read it all including the Victor Davis Hanson link for it is good.

..."The cowboy hero of my youth was a simple man who minded his own business and valued his freedom. It would take a lot to stir him up, but once aroused, he was unstoppable. His talk might be drawling or lazy, but not his principles; and the violence which was always there under the surface of his placidity could be called on to defend and protect that which he valued. Then he would ride out into the sunset; his job done, his duty fulfilled.

He never turned away from what had to be done; and he never cared much for nuance or appeasement. He always understood and accepted the consequences of his actions, not caring if he was liked or loved; but doing what he thought was right, no matter what the cost.

Today the American cowboy lives on in spirit in many aspects of our society. But if anything, there is even more contempt and anger heaped on him by our modern, cynical, and metrosexual society; who long ago stopped valuing the heroic and sees no need for cowboys in the new age.

Today, any hint of unsophisticated cowboy heroics or clear talk of 'right and wrong' or 'good and evil' are met with scorn by the spoiled elites of the world, who perceive the modern cowboy as an unwanted anachronism and a genuine liability--his mere existence a frightening threat to the fantasy world of love and peace they have created in their minds."

Thank you so much for linking to Dr. Sanity. Her comments about malignant narcissism of do-gooders so accurately describes the caseworker who terrorized our family. We recently received a "settlement," in which the caseworker's conclusions about our family were "expunged." The damage these people can cause is just immense. My wife still suffers PTSD from it.

Then, the other marvelous post by Dr. Sanity concerned the "con of victimhood." She links to an earlier post she wrote that is just marvelous. Many "therapists" in today's society perpetuate this damaging concept: wallow in victimhood!

When I read about this I thought of the nightmare your family and foster child went through with that caseworker who should have lost her job but is out torturing some other decent family.

Bring back the Cowboy, support Cowboys! YEEeeHAAAaaa! Gordo Lordo Ahmed is a terrorist supporting minkey. He should have his Lordship revoked, and of course he never should have been given one in the first place.

It's a damn shame the Queen and Prince Charles are both so Dhim
and clueless, and weak titular leaders that they probably don't even think of getting up the cojones to speak out to the public and the MPs to maybe try waking-the-effin-Mecca up and making the tiniest efforts to save Mother England.

Phony Lord Ahmed should be sanctioned at least and probably charged for calling for violence and insurrection. 'Fitna' should be shown, and the cops and the army should stand ready to put down and stop the rioters with any means necessary.

And to punish the Lord further 'Fitna' should be shown on BBC1 during prime time and all schools should be required to show it to everyone over 18.

The BNP doesn't want to kill, convert or enslave all non-white Brits. There is no comparison between Griffin and Geert Wilders either. Wilders is against Islamic Fundamentalists and Sharia Law, not Muslims per say, and they aren't even a race, so everybody should not even use the word 'racism' in regards to Muslims.

At least the BNP is the only party that will ever do anything about immigration. But their Leftism must be fought. Britain must move away from all this Leftism, it leads to only problems.

Right now, by far, the BIGGEST DANGER on the Right is a certain violent ideology of religion which is rabidly Right wing in its intolerance and hatred, cloaked in the words of God; and aided most importantly by so-called champions of the Left. Those that claim to 'care' for human rights and tolerance doing their all to destroy human rights and tolerance.

It's a horror film come to life.

We must admit that the ideology of the Left has been exposed as evil by it actively promoting and protecting the most evil and extreme Right-wing movement this planet has ever seen.

Sorry, I thought this was the comment for the Gordo link, and that it was connected to this article.
