Without further ado, I proudly present
At Wetzel's Corner
Crabs in a pot
Welcome to the first (and maybe only) installment of Wetzel’s Corner. A special Thank You to my brother Israel for allowing me space on his blog today.
I am a Husband, Father, and Patriot. I am also a Founding Member of III Arms. I am a lurker on blogs for the most part; maybe I’d send Wirecutter a pic of a deer I shot, but by and large I keep to myself. Live and let live. If it doesn’t pick my pocket or break my leg, I truly do not care what anyone else in this world does. What’s happening on other blogs is now directly affecting my investment. So here are some questions and observations:
MBV and the Merry Band: Do you believe in redemption? I do. Sam got pinched and served his debt. I forgive him, if you can’t you’d better do a gut check if you profess to be a Christian.
The things MBV confessed to having done in the name of Communism, if having been caught, would have made HIM a convicted felon. How do ya’ll out there in SipseyLand square with that?
All the fuss and negativity about something that you’re not involved in. How does it pick your pocket or break your leg? It doesn’t. That means you are involving yourself in something that’s none of your business, and are infringing on someone else’s Liberty. AND attempting to crash a fledgling FIREARMS manufacturer. Exactly what the Liberty movement stands for, eh?
Relying on handouts and government checks. Where does your hypocrisy end?
I can’t stand a hypocrite. Go fuck yourself.
There’s one commenter, I’ve read his posts on TL’s site as well as Sipsey- goes by the name of Tino.
Here’s a quote from a comment he made- “'I’m happy for Mike. He has done an excellent work exposing POS of all kinds. This Survival Blog's post ought to be the last nail in the Citadel IIIs (with Kerodin) coffin.”
Thanks for trying to drive a nail in forty Patriot’s investments. Asshole.
Tino- instead of casting aspersions, what have YOU done for Liberty? You say you’ve met both Simo Häyhä, AND Jeff Cooper. Mister Big World Traveler jetting to and from Finland and Arizona. I was in Mercer at TL’s Summit, where were you? Where were you when we were trying to pull together not in a virtual world, but in a real one? Heck, one patriot drove all the way from Montana to be there. That was TL’s effort, not Sam’s, surely you could have provided some support by showing up. Asshole.
All these posts and replies have one thing in common- and I think that it’s jealousy. Pure and simple. Thou Shall Not Covet. Try living with that paradigm, we’ll all be better off.
I’ve met Sam, looked him in the eye, shook his hand. Spoke with him. I’m a grown man, and can make my own decisions. Your advice regarding how I ought to not trust him due to his past is not welcome, nor appreciated.
I’ll bet most if not all the people blogging and commenting have never met the man, and cannot back up any of the claims they make about Sam’s character, other than the anecdotal ramblings of a Hypocrite or an Asshole.
Stay out of my business, and I’ll stay out of yours.
