The Amazing Story of Colonel Percy Fawcett

What the Hell Happened to the Man Who Mapped the Amazon?

 

Since I was a kid I have had a fascination with Explorers.

In partcular, Explorers of the Amazon.

As a writer people like Colonel Percy Fawcett whose life seems to blend myth and reality has always been a driving inspiration for me.

If you have not read the book The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, I recommend it highly.

When Men Were Men: Wisdom from a By-Gone Era

This is a collection of short videos of interviews with various Combat Veterans from past wars and conflicts.

Take some time and listen to them, you’ll be Amazed at How Much the World and the Military has Changed for the WORSE.

Below the First video click on “Read the Full Conversation on Twitter” to watch the other videos.

 

No Masculine Pivot

No Masculine Pivot

 

There will be no pivot under the current regime.

To allow it would be to call into question the egalitarian lie and nudge people towards other sacred egalitarian cows.

It is ideology over competency. An indicator for this is that approach to sanctions causing massive disruptions in the energy sector. The Biden administration is not downshifting the Green Energy future in favor of a massive domestic drilling program. There is no easy pen stroke to allow the completion of the Keystone pipeline.

Current progressive ideology will not allow it. The closest America may come might be television advertisements glorifying the castrated transwomen lifting, shooting and defending the amazing American empire.

Men may be praised for their martial strength but only in a wig, with painted nails and neutered.

When Men Were Men: Tom Crean

Tom Crean

 

Tom Crean was a gigantic Irish farmboy that was built like a concrete machine gun bunker, and whose primary talents generally involved his ability to drink, fight, and carry insanely heavy objects over ridiculously long distances without complaining too much about it.  He enlisted in the Royal Navy at the age of 15 as a “Boy, Second Class”, served 27 years in some of the most brutal environments on the planet, performed heroic and unbelievable feats of human strength and endurance, survived weeks and months in some of the most ferocious, unforgiving environments on Earth, received a chest full of medals for heroism, exploration, and scientific discovery, and participated in nearly every major expedition from the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.

Then he came home and never talked about any of it.

He’s basically everyone’s Badass Grandpa who went out into the world with nothing but whatever bullshit he had in his pockets, did some Man Shit with his life, and then came home, met a nice girl, and never talked about any of the insane things he’d done with his life.

 

Great Western Scenes: Shane

For my  money, Shane is one of the best Western’s ever made.

I must have watched it three dozen times with my Dad.

Two of my favorite lines is “One (gun) is all you need if you can use it” and “A Gun is as good or bad as the man using it.”
