OddGarfield's Profile Picture
OddGarfield
Gregory
Artist | Student
United States
I am one of the many people in this world who have nothing else to live for on Earth but one thing, I live, fight, thrive, and stand for the father of Humanity, the son of the God, and the Holy Spirit, I stand for Christianity. Many people may not understand what I worship and love most in life because they have not been raised as I have been, they have not been taught the morals and ways of Christianity, and those who have no care in the world of if they are saints or sinners in the eyes of God. For those who wish to strike me down, the ones who would rather ignore my teachings of Gods teachings, go ahead, say what you want, do what you wish to do to me, but know this, my soul is more powerful then anything that my mortal body can take in as long as I am one with God himself. Nothing can silence me, nor Atheists, nor Satanists, nor Jahova Witnesses, and nor any radical Muslims (terrorists). Yes, you can call me a radical Christian if that is the politically correct term, but I am only defending my own religion.

Enough about my religion and the defense that I intend to bring upon it, other than my religion being Christianity, I am a American, a strong conservative in government, a southern Confederate supporter in states rights from the national government, I do not support racism, but I may show racism towards ignorant people. I am in belief that the United States can be saved by bringing all cultures of the nation together to unite the nation instead of sending it into chaos by fighting one another on our beliefs. Knowing that the United States of America was established on the freedom of religion, as American citizens, we have our rights to do what we want in regards to religion, cultural relations and political views, that is the idea of a strong Republic, though there is a Democratic Party with Liberal based members in it, the people of the United States must make the right conservative choices and so forth, bring the nation together once more. Yes, I am speaking my mind on politics, go ahead, judge away, I see what can be done for my country, I see that it should be done and I will vote for someone who can do it, I may even send them letters of ideas of politics.
Thank you for taking your own time to read this dialog of myself, I hope I didn't offend anyone by what I have said above, but hey, I have my freedom of speech in the good old USA., so deal with it and keep it to yourself.

“Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.”
• Ezekiel 33:4 (King James Version)

"He who lives by the sword will die by the sword."
• Matthew 26:52

"When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan."
• Proverbs 29:2 of the Holy Bible.


“Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?"
• Psalm 85:6 of the Holy Bible. No nation, and no individual, is ever totally beyond hope—no matter how far gone they appear to be. God is sovereign, and He is able to bring revival and new life to even the coldest heart or the most rebellious nation. The Psalmist prayed.


“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. … Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction”
• Galatians 6:7-8 of the Holy Bible. "At the same time, when we repeatedly scorn God’s ways and continually follow paths that are destructive and immoral, we will eventually pay a terrible price. We will pay it as a nation, leading to conflict and social disruption and widespread evil. And we will pay it as individuals, leading to addictions and broken relationships and unhappiness and death. The Bible warns.


“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and. … love your neighbour as yourself”
• Mark 12:30-31 of the Holy Bible. Ask God to bring revival to your soul—a revival of love for Christ and His Word, and a revival of love for our lost and chaotic world. Jesus’ command to His disciples has never been rescinded.


"A time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace."
• Ecclesiastes 3:8 of the Holy Bible.



"You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also."
• Matthew 5:38-45 of the Holy Bible.



"With guns in the hands of the public, sure there will be tragedies, but without them there will be genocides."
• Unknown



"I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery."
• Thomas Jefferson



"Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God."
• Benjamin Franklin



"We recognize no sovereign but God, and no king but Jesus!"
• John Adams



"I Have Sworn Upon the Altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."
• Thomas Jefferson



"The possession of arms is the distinction between a free man, and a slave."
• James Burgh, British Whig politician



"They will never outlaw all of your guns at once. But every 'reasonable' control they can impose without your resistance gives them one more bit of leverage to make gun ownership for you and your children and your grandchildren as difficult as possible."
• David Kopel, American author, attorney, political science researcher



"These Sarah Brady types must be educated to understand that because we have an armed citizenry, a dictatorship has not happened in America. These anti-gun fools are more dangerous to liberty than street criminals or foreign spies."
• Theodore Haas, Dachau survivor


"The types of guns available don't matter to the Second Amendment. It isn't simply the freedom to bear arms; it was intended to allow the citizenry to overthrow the government should it become tyrannical. It's a natural view to take for a nation that was born of rebellion. If the spirit of 2A had actually been followed, there would be no restrictions on the variety of guns available."



"There are really no reasons to infringe 2A, including current infringement. Prohibition stops nothing, as drug wars can attest."
VX44



"To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow. ... For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals. Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding."
• Jeff Snyder, "Who's Under Assault in the 'Assault Weapon' Ban?", American Rifleman, October 1994, p. 53



"The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once."
• Justice Alex Kozinski, US 9th Circuit Court, 2003



"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
• Winston Churchill

Aaa%20flag by OddGarfield

Months of talk, rumor and gossip turned to action this weekend when a Confederate battle flag rose above Orange County.

The mammoth flag flies high over U.S. 70 – a well-traveled highway through this liberal county, home to UNC-Chapel Hill, 10 yoga studios, three Weaver Street Market natural food stores and an alpaca farm.

Whether the flag will be allowed to remain may be determined by the Orange County Board of Commissioners. The board is set to hear the public's comments regarding proposed changes to sign rules May 15 at the Southern Human Services Center at 2501 Homestead Road in Chapel Hill.

The amendment to the unified development ordinance could prohibit flags over 24 square feet, flagpoles over 24 feet in height or flagpoles taller than a property owner's main roof.

Additionally, flagpoles on residential property might be required to be set back at least 50 feet from property lines in Orange County.
County Attorney John Roberts has urged county leaders to approach the issue carefully. Rules that address the content of a flag or single out a particular flag could lead to a lawsuit.

A change would not immediately affect existing flags, Roberts has said, but those flags would have to comply with the rules later.

"The UDO amendment process being undertaken by the county will ensure that residents' First Amendment protections are upheld while addressing the concerns of many in the community regarding our county continuing to be a welcoming and inclusive place for all people," Hillsborough Town Commissioner Matt Hughes said Sunday.

The flag now flying is roughly 100 yards to the east, down U.S. 70, from the Division of Motor Vehicles office at 1201 Cornelius St. in Hillsborough.

The battle flag of the Confederate States of America looked brand new Sunday in a morning breeze, its red, white and blue colors bright and unstained by wear.

Some drivers slowed as they passed it. Two turned around to take second and third glances.

“It's up, it's flying, it's on private property, legal permit, and we followed all rules and regulations. Simple as that," the group Alamance County Taking Back Alamance County (ACTBAC NC) said in a statement.

The flag can be seen from vehicles traveling eastward, while still west of the flag's placement. A thin patch of trees partially blocks the Confederate battle flag from view of drivers approaching it from the east.

An ACTBAC NC Facebook post on Saturday night indicated that the flag was raised earlier that day.

Unlike the Confederate battle flags that the N.C. Sons of Confederate Veterans said they planned to raise across all 100 North Carolina counties earlier this year, the flag on U.S. 70 does not measure 30 feet in dimension.

ACTBAC NC wrote, “No it is only 20 X 20."

“A property owner has the right to fly whatever flag on his own property as he pleases. There are no flag pole height restrictions in the Orange County code of ordinance. Specifically related to flag poles or flags,” ACTBAC NC wrote.

The Orange County Schools banned the Confederate battle flag and other divisive symbols in its dress code last summer after months of debate and the deadly clash between Southern Nationalists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The local push was initiated by an Orange High mother after she kept seeing a Confederate battle flag in a truck at the school as she dropped her daughter off.

On Sunday, another mother, Robbyn “Yaya” Ellison, said she felt sick when she spotted the flag over the horizon over the weekend.
Ellison, who is African-American, corresponded via text message.

“Driving home from Mebane after a beautiful day, car was filled with my children of all races,” she wrote. “We laughed and danced and talked about all the beautiful spring sights.

“Until we rode up on something that flew high like a kite,” Ellison wrote.

The closer the car neared the flag, the quieter its passengers grew.

“It’s currently being flown high in our town honored and protected by outdated lies,”
she wrote. “I couldn’t contain my anger as I drove by, feeling sick.”

Ellison moved to Hillsborough eight years ago because it “boasted” about being an open-minded and liberal place to live.

But Ellison said, years of “racism against [her]” and the sight of the Confederate battle flag made her momentarily doubt whether she and her family would remain in Hillsborough.

Until, a change of heart occurred.

“This flag like the countless racist statutes will one day come down,” Ellison wrote. “I know one day my family, friends and countless others will be even prouder to live in this small beautiful town!!!”

The Orange County Human Relations Commission will hold a community conversation about proposed changes in local rules for flags and flagpoles at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 30, at the Whitted Building, 300 W. Tryon St. in Hillsborough.
