LARRY GATLIN: Time to Stand Athwart History Yelling 'Stop,' Once Again

AT THIS PIVOTAL MOMENT IN THE HISTORY OF OUR ONCE, and I PRAY, FUTURE GREAT REPUBLIC, WHO HAS THE uh, HOW DO I SAY THIS? THE uh...WELL, THE "BUCKLEYS", THAT'S IT, WHO HAS THE "BUCKLEYS" (thank you MR. B, Jr.), TO STAND ATHWART HISTORY, YELLING, STOP!

STOP!!-- THE INSANITY of trying to TAX, BORROW, and SPEND our way out of DEBT and RECESSION. (DR. LAFFER, THEY STILL DO NOT GET IT...Could it be that they do get it and they are deliberately trying to run us aground in order to "RESCUE AMERICA" with their PROGRESSIVE SOCIALISM? GLENN THINKS SO...I THINK I THINK SO TOO.)

STOP!!- -THE GOVERNMENT TAKEOVER of one sixth of the American economy...(SORRY. TOO LATE FOR THAT. IN NOVEMBER, THINK ONE WORD, REPEAL!!)

STOP--TRYING TO TURN US INTO CANADA, "NOT-SO-GREAT BRITAIN" and WHAT'S LEFT OF GREECE. AS CHARLIE BROWN and GEORGE WILL WOULD SAY, "GOOD GRIEF". AS I WOULD SAY, GOD HELP US!! 

SPEAKING OF GOD...STOP!!-- THE EXPUNGING of ALL REFERENCES TO GOD or ANYTHING THAT PERTAINS TO A "HIGHER AUTHORITY" OTHER THAN THE "HIGHER AUTHORITY" OF OUR "ROOKIE" PRESIDENT AND THE MOST TONE-DEAF OR SIMPLY THE MEANEST BUNCH OF SCOUNDRELS TO EVER PLACE THEIR HANDS ON A BIBLE AND SWEAR TO UPHOLD AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. 

(I'm no CONSTITUTIONAL SCHOLAR, but I can read, write, and TRACE, if necessary, and I can't find anything in THE CONSTITUTION THAT SAYS I CAN BE FINED OR THROWN IN JAIL... FOR REFUSING TO BUY INSURANCE?)

STOP-- MAKING UP, OUT OF THIN AIR, NEW HOOPS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO HAVE TO JUMP THROUGH.

STOP--INSULTING OUR INTELLIGENCE WITH DRIVEL LIKE THIS, from that BRILLIANT "POLITICAL PHILOSOPHER, COMRADE PELOSI, "WE HAVE TO PASS IT SO WE CAN SEE WHAT'S IN IT" ...and this BENEVOLENT "EL TORO POO POO", "VOTE FOR IT ( the OBAMACARE MONSTROSITY), EVEN IF YOUR CONSTITUENTS DONT WANT YOU TO," AGAIN, GOD HELP US!!

STOP-- TRYING TO WIN ARGUMENTS BY BELITTLING and TALKING DOWN TO ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH YOU. 

THIS FROM our NEW, "REACH ACROSS THE AISLE" PRESIDENT OBAMA, "JOHN, THE CAMPAIGN IS OVER...WE WON!! 

NOBODY CARES ABOUT THE PROCESS. 

This "CHEAP SHOT", WAS FIRED AT A WAR HERO, U. S. SENATOR, and, CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES, SEN. JOHN MC CAIN, ON WORLDWIDE TELEVISION, when THE SENATOR had the audacity to inform "HIS LORDSHIP", THAT THE FOLKS IN ARIZONA, (no, not those folks with knapsacs full of drugs...the ones to whom the current administration wants to grant amnesty).

 THE LEGAL RESIDENTS OF THE GREAT STATE OF ARIZONA, DO NOT LIKE THE WAY WE DO THINGS UP HERE. ( i. e., "THE LOUISIANA PURCHASE," "THE CORNHUSKER KICKBACK" and "The STUPAK SELLOUT"). 

THAT ELICITED THIS "SMART_ _ _" JAB, FROM THE LEADER OF THE, "SOON NOT-TO-BE" FREE WORLD, "YOU LOST, JOHN..THEY DONT CARE ABOUT THE PROCESS. YOU LOST, JOHN. I WON. 

HA HA HA HA HA HA...I WON, YOU LOST.HA HA HA HA HA HA."...NOT THE EXACT QUOTE, BUT YOU GET THE PICTURE.

STOP--TREATING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE LIKE CHILDREN.

STOP--ACTING LIKE THE "LORD PROTECTORS OF THE REALM."

STOP-- ACTING LIKE WE, YOUR "LOYAL SUBJECTS" SHOULD BE GRATEFUL THAT YOU, THE "LORD PROTECTORS OF THE REALM" ARE DOING ALL OF THIS FOR OUR GOOD.

STOP--FLYING AROUND IN G-5's, THAT WE HAVE TO PAY FOR, WHEN YOU COULD HAVE A STAFF MEMBER CALL EARLY AND GET YOU AN A BOARDING PASS ON SOUTHWEST AIRLINES SO YOU WONT HAVE TO SIT IN A MIDDLE SEAT.

STOP--SITTING IN THE SENATE DINING ROOM, MAKING SNIDE REMARKS ABOUT HOW, "WE THE PEOPLE", WHO LIVE IN "FLYOVER COUNTRY", JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND, in other words, THAT WE ARE STUPID. 

DO NOT TRY TO TELL ME THAT YOU DON'T DO IT...I HAVE HEARD YOU DO IT.

AND, BY THE WAY, WE ARE NOT STUPID.

WELL, at long last, BACK TO THE "BUCKLEYS". I WILL TELL YOU WHO HAS THE "BUCKLEYS" TO "STAND ATHWART HISTORY YELLING STOP!!" I DO! 

MY YELLING, STOP, MAY NOT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE... ONLY TIME WILL TELL. 

BUT RIGHT NOW, TODAY, THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT "STAND ATHWART HISTORY MOMENT" OF MY LIFE, BECAUSE IT IS MY LIFE, MY LIBERTY AND MY PURSUIT of HAPPINESS...BY THE WAY, YOURS TOO, AMERICA!!

I THANK GOD THAT THERE ARE COURAGEOUS MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE THE " BUCKLEYS" TO "STAND ATHWART" ... 

THERE IS GEORGE WILL, DANIEL HENNINGER, RUSH LIMBAUGH, GLENN BECK, SEAN HANNITY, DAVID ASMAN, BILL KRISTOL, DENNIS MILLER, AND MANY OTHERS...

THERE IS... DOROTHY RABINOWITZ, LAURA INGRAHAM, ANN COULTER, MICHELLE MALKIN, PEGGY NOONAN, MONICA CROWLEY, MAUREEN DOWD...NOT!!! (just trying to see if you are paying attention) WHO HAVE "STOOD ATHWART YELLING STOP".  SO YOU SEE, WOMEN CAN HAVE "BUCKLEYS TOO.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN US? If so, STAND AND YELL. DO NOT HIDE BEHIND THE CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN AT COCKTAIL PARTIES WHEN THE ATROCITIES COMMITTED BY THE "HARD CORE UNEMPLOYABLES" IN D. C. ARE LAUDED and GLORIFIED.

 JUMP OUT FROM BEHIND THE CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN AND YELL, STOP!! YOU WILL SCARE THE HELL OUT OF THE "SWELLS" AT THE PARTY, FOR MORE REASONS THAN ONE.

LOOK INTO YOUR HEART AND FIND YOUR WAY TO YELL STOP. WE WILL WELCOME YOU INTO THE "BUCKLEYS BRIGADE". STAND WITH US " ATHWART THE HISTORY" THAT IS BEING MADE RIGHT NOW, TODAY...AND YELL, STOP!

MR. PRESIDENT, (I know that you are a big GATLIN BROTHERS FAN and a "closet" FOXNEWS.COM reader, so I know you will see this) TO YOU I say, I am willing to be the "LOYAL OPPOSITION" AS PART of a MINORITY THAT IS GOVERNED... GOOD LUCK TRYING TO KEEP ME QUIET NOW THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO TURN YOUR ELECTION INTO A MANDATE, THAT SOMEHOW MAKES YOU "OUR ENLIGHTENED DESPOT," WHO WILL RULE US WITH A GENTLE HAND AND A "FATHERLY HEART"...LET'S GET SOMETHING STRAIGHT. I WILL NOT BE RULED, SO, STOP--TRYING!!

IN ANOTHER TIME OF GREAT UPHEAVAL IN OUR COUNTRY, A RALLYING CRY AROSE AMONG THE "LOVERS OF FREEDOM...LIVE FREE OR DIE!!". I AM NOT ADVOCATING ARMED REBELLION...ON SECOND THOUGHT, I GUESS I AM. BUT I WILL ARM MYSELF WITH MY GUITAR, MY SONGS, MY PEN, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE TRUTH. 

I WILL WRITE AND SING MY SONGS, AND PEOPLE WILL LISTEN. REMEMBER, SIR, THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD and I AM GOING TO WIELD MINE... and I WILL NOT---STOP!!
