The Internet



How the Internet Really Began

Please do not Google or check this out with Snopes.  They will lie to you.  Trust me!


According to the Bible, there is nothing new under the sun. ~ Ecclesiastes 1:9

In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a healthy young wife by the name of Dorothy Sarah. And Dot Com was a comely woman, large of breast, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com. 
  
And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?"


And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"
 

And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. The sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."
    
Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent.
 

To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures - Hebrew to the People (HTTP).
  

And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS.  

And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land. Indeed he did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates' drum heads and drumsticks.
 

And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others." And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or eBay as it came to be known.  He said, "We need a name that reflects what we are."
 

And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators."  "YAHOO," said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com.


Abraham's nephew, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside.
 
It soon became known as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).

That is how it all began. And that's the truth.

You can't make this stuff up.

The Deplorables



Jack Wing
US. Marine Corps (RET)

I'm noticing that a lot of the left aren't graciously accepting the fact that your candidate lost. In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those who voted for Trump.


Some of you are apparently "triggered" because you are posting how "sick" you feel about the election results.


How did this happen you ask?
 

You created "the deplorables" when you attacked our freedom of speech.

You created "the deplorables" when you attacked our Christian beliefs.

You created "the deplorables" when you constantly referred to us as racists.

You created "the deplorables" when you constantly called us xenophobic.

You created "the deplorables" when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.

You created "the deplorables" when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.

You created "the deplorables" when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.

You created "the deplorables" when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.

You created "the deplorables" when you attacked our flag.

You created "the deplorables" when you took respect for God out of our schools.

You created "the deplorables" when you confused women's rights with feminism.

You created "the deplorables" when you began to emasculate men.

You created "the deplorables" when you decided to make our children soft.

You created "the deplorables" when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.

You created "the deplorables" when you attacked our way of life.

You created "the deplorables" when you decided to let our government get out of control.

"You" created "us", the silent majority.
 
You created "us" when you began murdering law enforcement officers.

You created "us" when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn't remove your hat during our National Anthem. 


And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.

And we did it with ballots, not bullets.

With ballots, not riots.

With ballots, not looting.

With ballots, not blocking traffic.

With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of "us". 
 

"YOU" created "US".
It really is just that simple. YOU are responsible for Trump's election as President. Get over it.

Lessons of the Past



Here at My Patriot Supply, we have a deep passion for the lessons that history can teach us.



This message needs repeating
 
These lessons from history inform who we are as a company and how we advise and help loyal Americans like you prepare any emergency whether man-made or Mother Nature.

Now is a fitting time to take a look back and learn lessons from the past.

It is a crucial time in our country's history, and it is my hope that we can learn from it to help us prepare for the future.


BEWARE ROSY PRONOUNCEMENTS AND ABSOLUTE PREDICTIONS

Before we get started, one quick caveat. Here at My Patriot Supply, we don't pick sides in politics. It's not because we don't have opinions about politicians. But rather, our allegiance is to American patriots, first and foremost. Helping folks like you become more self-reliant, safe and free is our one and only mission.

However, it's nearly impossible to talk about history without talking about the players - especially leaders - involved. 

That being said, let's go all the way back to 1928. We'll start with a quote: "We in America today are nearer to the final triumph over poverty than ever before in the history of any land."
 

Herbert Hoover
 
This quote came from the man who had just won the Republican nomination and would become the 31st President of the United States: Herbert Hoover. It's from his nomination acceptance speech and would come to haunt him, as we'll see shortly. 

After being elected, Hoover echoed a similar pronouncement in his inaugural address: "In the large view, we have reached a higher degree of comfort and security than ever existed before in the history of the world. Through liberation from widespread poverty we have reached a higher degree of individual freedom than ever before." 
 
Back then, presidents were inaugurated in March - it wasn't until FDR's 2nd term that presidents were sworn in in January. So, Hoover made this pronouncement a mere 8 months before the stock market crash would plunge America into the Great Depression. 

It's important to note that Hoover wasn't lying - at least not exactly. Many, like him, believed that America's "Roaring Twenties" would never end. Depression was ravaging World War I-torn Europe and other nations around the globe. But the majority of folks never believed it would reach our shores.

In fact, some time after the Depression became a stark reality, Hoover announced this in a radio address: "The depression has been deepened by events from abroad which are beyond the control either of our citizens or our government." 
 
Despite the fact that Hoover was now admitting to an economic downturn, the cause was not due to factors from within our economy - like dangerous banking practises. Again, he wasn't distorting the truth, but he wasn't exactly right, either. 

Hoover worked hard to recover the economy. Yet, most Americans were dissatisfied with the results of his efforts. 

As he campaigned for re-election in 1932, he returned to making rosy pronouncements in a campaign speech called "The Success of Recovery: "It can be demonstrated that the tide has turned and that the gigantic forces of depression are today in retreat. Our measures and policies have demonstrated their effectiveness. They have preserved the American people from certain chaos. They have preserved a final fortress of stability in the world." 
 
This time, Americans wanted to listen to the rosy pronouncements of a different man, one who offered them a "New Deal." Thus, Franklin D. Roosevelt took Hoover's place in the Oval Office. 



Franklin Delano Roosevelt
 
It would be years before the economy recovered to 1929 levels. Many factors lead to that recovery - not just the new presidents' New Deal. 

Here's the lesson we must take to heart: beware rosy pronouncements and absolute predictions - especially when they come from those who are expected to lead us. 

You can't blame Hoover for making those pronouncements. He believed them. He had reason to believe them. And in order to get elected, he had to speak them with conviction. 

That's why it's our responsibility as citizens to be skeptical of these pronouncements. 

After all, it's our personal duty to ensure our own self-reliance, liberty and prosperity. It is also our duty to vote for people we believe in - and their rosy pronouncements. But ultimately, the heavy lifting is on us. 

Living a self-reliant lifestyle is absolutely crucial, no matter who is in office. In fact, it's how most people survived, even thrived during the Great Depression.
Have you heard the phrase "History repeats itself?" It's pretty common, and seemingly easy to understand, but it's a bit too simplistic. History doesn't literally repeat itself. Rather, certain scenarios or situations will recur and cause similar events from our past. 

With that in mind, there are some interesting similarities between the scenario under President Hoover and what we see now with President Trump. Both were successful businessmen. Hoover, Trump and William Taft are the only three men to be elected President having never been elected to national office nor served as military generals. Finally, the last time Republicans controlled both Congress and the Presidency, before now? 1928, with President Hoover.

Of course, there are plenty of differences between Republicans and Democrats. Their rosy pronouncements are different, though both make great promises to the American people. 

As patriotic citizens, we wish our Presidents well in their efforts to make good on their promises. But it's also our duty to ensure these promises for ourselves and by ourselves. 

Make this year the time you become more self-reliant than ever before. We'll be here to help you every step of the way. Our preparedness experts are standing by at 866.229.0927, or order online ==> http://www.mypatriotsupply.com/?Click=147526
