The Older You Get The Longer You Pray…

I don’t often indulge in reflection… but when I do, well, y’all are welcome to come along.  Decades of living with one foot in a flip-flop and the other in a wingtip lends itself to a rather odd set of life-skills and friendships.

Tonight I celebrate a series of Trumpian winnamins with a comfy cigar, and hat-tip at sunset to all y’all.  Having lived every.single.line of these two songs, and still planning on sliding in sideways to the pearly gates: ‘wow, whatta ride‘, well, no greater love. True.

Cheers.  All y’all pirates.

Be back later.

    Been an avid reader of the “treeper site” since the Travon Martin mess. Stumbled into it and in hindsight it was my lucky day. Don’t comment often as I am not good with words, but I’d give just about anything to have a cold one and a cigar with you Sundance. God bless you and all the “treepers” of this beautiful treehouse. I have quite a few more years on you but can’t thank you enough for what you do. Astonishing to say the least. Here’s to your health and many more years. P.S. one of my favorite parts is The Lords Prayer which starts every day. Couldn’t be more appropriate in these times as I do believe we are witnessing a little “ divine intervention “ . At my age I thank the Lord every day and a big thank you to you. Happy Birthday my anonymous friend!!!

    Happy Birthday Sundance, take a good long vacation. I really don’t believe i can put into words what your extremely insightful and brilliant analysis has meant to me. For more than a decade I felt like I was beating my head against a brick wall. I called and emailed Congressmen until I was blue in the face. I found myself literally screaming at the TV. Finally I read a comment on a thread that directed me here. YOU explained the insanity! You Sundance have actually been a lifeline, I understand now and know it wasn’t me! It is the Uniparty and The Big Club. My heartfelt sincere thanks!

    Forever in your debt,

    I have wondered if you ever get to celebrate life events. If you only get in working vacays. Especially when we are living through these unprecedented days. Enjoy all the moments you do get!

    Ecclesiastes 2:24 (KJV)

    24 There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.

  13. I have no reason to doubt a word in this post. I find inspiration in the way in which it’s presented with humility so much that I must elaborate. It’s true that the Lord uses the ones we’d least expect in mysterious ways. One could look to Churchill as a man “of this world”. In many ways they’d be correct. But then again you’d have to be in denial to think that the Heavens didn’t have something to do with whom was chosen to deliver God’s chosen people from extinction in WW2. There’s been far fewer instances in which I had God’s blessing to do his work compared to that in which Sundance has. I’ve honestly missed many more than I’ve caught which hurts the ego and the pride but the goal remains the same because there is no finish line. For whatever reason though it’s happened with some small degree of success a time or three to me and that’s why I find SD so inspirational. Men are judged over time by their own ability to abstain from the things that are considered worldly. But they are also judged by their willingness to do the right thing no matter what it takes when they personally have nothing to gain. Not over the small things over the big uncomfortable things. I’m no expert on either. I am not anywhere close to being a Sundance but I am better at the smaller works by having someone like this to look up to. It’s not a lightning bolt one catches in a bottle. It’s not about going viral. It’s rarely even about a miracle. If you want to be honest about it…It starts with the way you get out of bed and how you walk into a room. Its a code of conduct. It’s not an act, it’s the exact opposite. You arrive with this whole mentality that whatever happens it’s non violent and it’s not personal but at the same time whatever happens happens for real. Pardon my French. You have to find the right amount of dick to be towards others when they have a nefarious agenda. That’s not crass when it’s in context. Nor is the pic of the baby who is bottomless with the cowboy hat on while facing the beast with no learned memory of regret or defeat or even fear. The symbolic representation (to me) is to show innocence and the true state of ourselves. That mentality the baby has, is the natural condition for some and it’s all based solely on experiences (not preconceived traits). There are those who would call both instances above awful names and they’ll never truly get it on their own. You can’t beat it in their heads you can only inspire them by doing the right thing. The meek shall inherit the earth. And while some may be compelled to witness to others by how wonderful Jesus is. Some of us witness by telling how awful and how real Satan is. The latter looks different but is no less a man of God. I saw reason for more than a celebration with SD’s post and had to bare my heart because someone out there (especially on here), needs reassurance that we are all Sundance. It’s not in the name it’s the use of a pseudonym. A pseudonym can’t be arrogant because it defies logic. But for real the fact a pseudonym chooses and use humility ought to inspire all of us. I type this not for glory. Don’t like this post plz. Just take it in. Let it sink in. See how it might change some dynamic of your life to reconsider certain things instead. If you hit like you missed the point. You This concludes my “sermon” for this eve. I lecture no one. I’m just lucky to have found this place. 🙏

    Okay… The Frampton track…. WOW!

    I was there. First concert I ever went to. The ticket was $7.50 cost me $10:00 cause I didn’t pre purchase like all my friends did. Winterland, San Francisco Spring of 1975. Frampton started at 11:00 pm didn’t finish until 2:30 am. Un freaking believable what I heard that night. He never said it was being recorded and he was ON that night. Bought a guitar 3 months later. Thank you Sundance for the memory.Think I’ll go have a glass of wine and a Sherman ’bout now!

        I wore thru the strings of moms Ted Williams tennis racket playing air guitar to that album as a young pup. BOC’s “On your feet or on your knees” was also in heavy rotation in my basement back in the day… Gonzo took it to eleven then dad put the red tape on the volume control to show where the dial shall not pass on the Radio Shack receiver/8 track player combo. Dad had the Fisher in the living room that was off limits to all except mom (sometimes). Dad’s gone but mom is still around, her NY induced T.D.S is so strong that she doesn’t talk to me much and this causes much pain inside my heart. Lost some close friends over my love for this country and this also pains my heart but I find solace in the writings on this particular wall.

        I’ve been here since the start and appreciate all the knowledge that has been dropped for all to read and ponder. God is truly great and his love for us is shown by the determination of others to set the record straight. The storm is here, now and we are the eye.

        I love you all even though we’ve never met.

You have rare gift given to you by our King in heaven and I praise god for sending you to me. When I read your post, then the music, I thought the worst but realized after reading a few comments you’re going on vacation and and or it’s your birthday today July 10. If so happy Birthday and have an awesome vacation! Come back soon! 😀😀😀

    One last thing, when I listened to frampton It made me realize we’re most likely same age. I bought the album and seen that concert the year it was released and he was on tour. I had just started college and managed to scraped up the money to go. I still have that album after all of those years.

    Saying “Thank You, Sundance, for doing this site” isn’t enough for me……

    I truly believe, other than Candidate Trump, you have been the other catalyze, that trigger the expansion of our Movement by reporting the facts–the truth, which was the very thing we lacked for decades, thanks to Fake News. Many of us old Boomers recognized that and yet didn’t know how to make it right again. We tried to make our opinions matter, but got silenced by various arguments. We saw, over and over, the politicians we voted in, changed their loyalty once they walked into their position of gov’t authority and became criminals in the eyes of U.S. Constitution.

    We saw nationalism, patriotism, protectionism and respect for our fellow Americans go down the tube. We saw God leave our country.

    Candidate Trump rallied us to let us know he is with us and that he understands. Candidate Trump rallied us, to bring all the true American Patriots together under one roof and to cheer in a positive way. Candidate Trump, thru his speeches and Twitters, opened our eyes to the ugly truth. Candidate Trump dare to say “WALL”. Candidate Trump dare to say “Our Almighty God”.

    We had all those dots (info, truth, facts, incidents, lies, personal tragedies ) we had collected over the course of our lifetime, not knowing what to do with them or how to connect them or to even solve them. You, Sundance, came thru like the blazing sun rays, and started helping Candidate Trump and us to expand and connect our dots with truth bombs.

    Thru your articles and our dots, we finally understood the ‘whys’ of our past and to identify our cold anger that was building up over the decades. In our present state, we are able to observed how we got rigged by the dual corrupted party system, and the Fake News Media and that alone would help us to build up our resolve for the future of our country.

    As long we are kept informed and maintain our Monster Votes, we will win every time. Other than President Trump, you alone are responsible for this Movement to explode, because you have given us convictions and the perfect tools to share with the other uninformeds out there.

    Thank you, Sundance, for explaining out our political dilemma.

    May the Lord continue to Protect and Bless you, Sundance,….always…..and of course, your team, AdRem, etc. has played a huge part in keeping the Treehouse cleaned and going forward to MAGA.

    This is “The Winning Formula”.

    P.S. —I love all you wonderful Treepers for contributing your news and comments here. Most of them were invaluable. I pray for you all and this site everyday, too.

    I’m trying to imagine what it would have been like without Sundance…it would be like those poor boys trapped in the cave…not knowing, but still believing.
