out from under my rock for a minute
I guess it’s time to open up a little. There is much going on in the world and I try to point out some of my observations about what I see and hopefully shine a light on points that may not be noticeable to others. I can’t say I am effective at this as I have pretty much stepped away from commentary in the III community. The reasons for that have been noted elsewhere and I still stand by that.
But there comes a time where silence is worse than drawing fire.
I have met Kerodin, if only briefly.
I have not met Mike V.
I found my way into the Patriot movement through MVB as many of us did. He sang a good tune and DID have a lot of info that helped focus our ‘education’.
It was about the time of the ‘Break their windows, Break them NOW!’ debacle that I started noticing a discrepancy in his words. There was a lot of orders, but no leading. More often, it was ‘the hand’ for cash or sympathy. And always some slander about some other personality on the net ‘that didn’t fit’ in Mikes world.
Kerodin is doing something. Mike, well, outwardly, is not, except dying. I wish the man no harm, but in that same breath, I wish he would stop doing harm. He is divisive and antagonistic: His sirens song shows discordant melodies that I wish others could hear for themselves.
I have no skin in either of their games: I have chosen my route and am on it and working hard towards an end. I just know that the common element I found while traveling between the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico attending Patcoms is feeling a chafing, and it is NOT coming from Kerodin, but from Mike. That needs to stop, time is too short to have to patch up damage inflicted by internal methods. We have enough enemies, we don’t need them in our ranks.
I have no skin their game. I have made my decision to not financially support the Citadel Project. My reasons are mine, and I keep them as such. It is not a distrust factor, just to be clear, and nothing more needs said on such. I also do not support Mike in any way. I don’t even read his site anymore, nor will I link to him and help drive up his search engine numbers. “I withdraw consent” and that is about the best way we can isolate those that would do us damage here in the nets. Drop their hits so they fall in search engine ratings.
At one time, I posted my observations on the events that took place in Mercer Co PA. I may have rubbed some wrong, but I stand by my words, then and now. I have experienced bruised egos of late with some as well, and I still stand on my words, then and now. I know that the group I am aligned with now, know where I stand and what I am willing to commit towards the group. They see it, they see the results of that commitment every day. There need to be more that SHOW what they are doing, and those that have aligned themselves with The Citadel and III Arms are showing that commitment. I applaud you. We need more groups NATIONWIDE to do similar to that and what the group I am with are doing and maybe, just maybe, when the dust settles, this country will be back in Patriot hands. That, to the best of my knowledge and the word I carried in my travels of the Patcoms, was what Bill N. intended. That was the message I picked up from the first event, and it still rings true to me today, despite the falling out that has taken place between Bill and I.
Lets drop the monkey-poo flinging and get our asses in gear to build what needs built. Let the dying old guard with an agenda go the wayside.
