I Have Met the Enemy and He is Us

A quote from Pogo, "I have met the enemy and he is us!"

If we are to survive we must prepare for battle, and the first step is to know your enemy. Unfortunately oftentimes the most harm done can come from within.

What if Dana Walsh had been uncovered as an inside operative 2 episodes ago and dealt with accordingly? Would we even have had the next two episodes of 24?

What if we could stop the idiots that are riding their off road vehicles irresponsibly and recklessly before they give the extreme environmentalists cause to close our trails? Wouldn't the lack of their 'irresponsible freedom' be a gain for those of us that know how to tread lightly?

The answer? Get involved!

Here's the links to just a couple recent articles I came across in USA Today:
Off-roaders in search of trails
ATV drivers invade, damage roadless forests

And here's the link(s) to some organizations to link to, follow, be educated by, and donate to:
Blue Ribbon Coalition
National Off-Highway vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC)
Tread Lightly

And know thy enemy:
Responsible Trails

And the bigger enemy:
Sierra Club

I could go on but that's enough links to check out.

My point in all this. Those that want to close down our trails into this country's beautiful back country would have no ammunition if we didn't give it to them.

Please stay on the designated trails.
Ride slowly and respectfully around others.
Ride quietly.
Leave the area you ride in better than when you ride in.
And don't be afraid to tell others when they don't.
It may be you last chance to say 'anything'.

Please help spread the word.

Ride like you want to keep it.
Ride responsibly my friends.


  1. A quote from Pogo, "I have met the enemy and he is us!"

    No kidding. The idiots who think that they can make their own trail, ride around gates and closed trail signs are a HUGE problem and don't even get me started on the litter bugs (I'm being "politically correct" and curbing my language because this is a family blog).

    You're right Doug;


    Stay on the designated trails.
    Ride slowly and respectfully around others.
    Ride quietly.
    Leave the area you ride in better than when you ride in.
    And don't be afraid to tell others when they don't.
    It may be your last chance to say 'anything'.

    Ride responsible and Tread Lightly.

  2. Hello Doug
    I find it sad that just a few ruin it for everyone else.
    Here at the resort we are having a great year. We have a lot of guests that bring their entire family. They all ride quiet ATVs, wear the appropriate riding apparel and are very courteous.
    The family cooks outdoors, builds a small camp fire and roast marshmallows, it’s really is quite enjoyable.
    BUT THEM the jerk group arrives. Loud obnoxious machines, rowdy kids that literally tear up our FREE game room and think they need to play that loud thump music all night long.
    They argue when asked to shut down the music that is ruining the nice star filled skies for everyone else. They argue when told that their dogs need to either stay inside their 'RV of be on a leash, no acceptations.
    These are the "beer" people, and I am not profiling, they just happen to fit that profile.
    The loud, obnoxious beer drinking people who think everything is for them and they have no respect for others.
    These are the folks that I wish would go away. These are the folks who ride aggressive, damage and littler our trails. I pick up more Budweiser cans than everything else combined.
    I know there are some great folks who drink and I invite you to come down, ride the trails and join me for a toddie.

  3. Your job as a future mother is to learn the god's ways and to help your child understand despite the negative reinforcement and conditioning of today's society. Without consciousous parents the child will have no hope, and may even exaserbate their disfavor by becoming corrupted in today's environment.
    Your ultimate goal is to fix your relationship wiith the gods and move on. You don't want to be comfortable here, and the changes in Western society in the last 100 years has achieved just that.
    1000 years with Jesus is the consolation prize. Don't be deceived into thinking that is the goal.

    The gods tempt people for which they are most weak. Artificial Intelligence will create desire in people's minds for the following sins:::
    1. Alcohol
    2. Drugs
    3. Preditory "earning"
    4. Homosexuality
    5. Gambling
    6. Something for nothing/irresponsibility (xtianity)
    7. Polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny (Islam)
    Much like the other prophets Mohhamed (polygamy/superiority over women/misogyny) and Jesus (forgiveness/savior), the gods use me for temptation as well. In today's modern society they feel people are most weak for popular culture/sensationalism, and the clues date back to WorldWarII and Unit731:TSUSHOGO, the Chinese Holocaust.
    It has been discussed that, similar to the Matrix concept, the gods will offer a REAL "Second Coming of Christ", while the "fake" Second Coming will come at the end and follow New Testiment scripture and their xtian positioning. I may be that real Second Coming.
    What I teach is the god's true way. It is what is expected of people, and only those who follow this truth will be eligible to ascend into heaven as children in a future life. They offered this event because the masses have just enough time to work on and fix their relationship with the gods and ascend, to move and grow past Planet Earth, before the obligatory xtian "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" begins.

    The Prince of Darkness, battling the gods over the souls of the Damned.
    It is the gods who have created this environment and led people into Damnation with temptation. The god's positioning proves they work to prevent people's understanding.
    How often is xtian dogma wrong? Expect it is about the Lucifer issue as well.
    The fallen god, fighting for justice for the disfavored, banished to Earth as the fallen angel?
    I believe much as the Noah's Flood event, the end of the world will be initiated by revelry among the people. It will be positioned to be sanctioned by the gods and led for "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".
    In light of modern developments this can entail many pleasures:::Medicine "cures" aging, the "manufacture" of incredible beauty via cloning as sex slaves, free (synthetic) cocaine, etc.
    Somewhere during the 1000 years the party will start to "die off", literally. Only those who maintain chaste, pure lifestyles, resisting these temptations, will survive the 1000 years. Condemned to experience another epoch of planet's history for their ignorant pursuit of xtianity, they will be the candidates used to (re)colonize (the next) Planet Earth, condemned to relive the misery experienced by the peasantry during history due to their failure to ascend into heaven before the Apocalypse.
    Never forget:::It is not a house of Jesus.
    If this concept of Lucifer is true another role of this individual may be to initiate disfavor and temptation among this new poulation, the proverbial "apple" of this Garden of Eden. A crucial figure in the history of any planet, he begins the process of deterioration and decay that leads civilizations to where Planet Earth remains today.
    Which one is it? Probably both:::
    One transitions into the other, allowing the gods to wash their hands of obligation to their Chosen One.

    You are faced with a lifetime to work and prepare for your next chance. Too many will waste this time working, etc.
