If you’ve ever been on a ranch at branding time you know what the term “nut cuttin’ time” means in a practical sense. If you are a newly born male calf you actually get to experience it. It is when potential bulls become steers.
In modern parlance “nut cuttin’ time” has come to mean “the moment of truth” when critical decisions are made.
Well America, it is now officially nut cuttin’ time as the moment of truth has arrived. No more excuses, no more blaming everything and everyone else for the fix we are in and no more relying on the government for help. If you’re looking for a helping hand start by looking at the end of your own damn arm and go from there.
It’s time to get out that sharp knife so we can cut our way out of all the taxes, deficits, debt and regulations that are strangling the life out of our country and making us all wards of the state by creating a culture of dependency with government giveaway programs.
But remember, the government never gave anyone anything. They steal it from someone who earned it to give to someone who hasn’t.
The biggest threat to our future is this bloated behemoth of government that is consuming our money and our freedoms like a hungry bear who just came out of hibernation after a long winter.
And the moment has arrived to stop it dead in its tracks and take control of our destiny.
But don’t expect a new president to wave a magic wand and fix everything.
Don’t expect any help from Washington which is nothing more than 68 square miles surrounded by reality.
And don’t expect the politicians, who are as useless as a one-legged man in a butt kickin’ contest to do anything.
Nope, it’s going to be up to the people to lead America back to the trail laid out by our forefathers and into the tall grass of freedom and prosperity.
But that is only part of our problem.
While America’s fiscal and financial deficits are bad they aren’t half as bad as our ethics and values deficits. The Ten Commandments are now the Ten Suggestions and they are optional.
We have an ever encroaching Nanny state trying to run our lives. Look life has risk. We can’t legislate, regulate or litigate our way out of every problem.
And liberals drone on about making things “fair”.
But life isn’t fair and it’s not the government’s job to make it so.
Finally we need to get off our backsides and return to good old fashioned common sense and the real American values that have sustained us through good times and bad.
So get ready. We got work to do. We are burning daylight and running out of time.
Tighten up your cinches, mount up and get comfortable in the saddle.
It’s nut cuttin’ time, America!
