“Just a Good Guy…With a Few Bad Habits”

Credos From The Road

with 3 comments

A couple of friends and I were discussing some of our favorite books last night at our weekly literary meeting…. Naw! Actually we were at Boomers Roadhouse for his weekly bike night and the subject of recent biker books came up over a few PBR’s.

A lot of people will disagree with me, but, from what I’ve read about him, I have a lot of respect for Sonny Barger. Sonny was a longtime President of the Oakland, California chapter of the Hells Angels and currently resides outside of Phoenix, Arizona.

In his book “Freedom–Credos From The Road,”Barger presents some the wisdom he has gathered from spending 50+ years “on the road.”

I wish that some of the liberal candy asses in Washington would read this book and take some of it’s concepts to heart. Whether it be the War on Terror, or the Illegal Immigration debate, they could learn a lot from Sonny’s direct approach to life.

The following is excerpted from the above book. I think I’ll e-mail this to every Senator, or Congressman, who has stated: “I support the troops, but I am against the war.” 

You win a war by kicking the enemy’s ass, not by negotiating with them. We go to war so that we may live in peace. I see value in war, although it’s an expensive proposition and should be your last resort. War requires absolute commitment. Peace won’t come until you’re entirely prepared to confront your enemy and make sacrifices back home.”

What I like about the above statement, besides the part about kicking the enemy’s ass, is the statement “War requires absolute commitment.” Where would we be in Iraq today if Senators like Harry Ried, John Edwards, Hillary Rodham (you know she can’t wait to drop “Clinton”), and Ted Kennedy, or Congressmen like Jim Murtha, and Nancy Pelosi, were to stand up and say: “We disagree with President Bush on many issues, however, we will not rest until our military has exterminated every last bit of terrorist vermin alive in the world today. We are committed to the security and safety of the citizens of the United States of America, and there is no amount of money we won’t spend, and absolutely no lengths we won’t go to, to ensure that security and safety. We will stand firmly behind the President until victory is won.”

I have to believe that once the mixed messages are no longer being sent, and once the terrorists believe that ALL Americans are on the same page, the War on Terror would come to a quick conclusion.

  1. Good stuff. Speaking of biker books, I would recommend “Hell’s Angels: A Strange and Terrible Saga” by Hunter Thompson. Fascinating. E-mail me your address and I’ll send you my copy.

  3. I agree with Sonny Barger’s quote on war as well, but I take issue with your singling out only the Liberal trash. The Bush administration declared the war, but has not made the absolute commitment to win it or made any significant sacrifices back home. They have pissed away thousands of americans lives and wasted valuable time by running the war as a ‘business’. You can outsource the jobs but not the blood…

    “You win a war by kicking the enemy’s ass, not by negotiating with them. We go to war so that we may live in peace. I see value in war, although it’s an expensive proposition and should be your last resort. War requires absolute commitment. Peace won’t come until you’re entirely prepared to confront your enemy and make sacrifices back home.”
