May You Live in Interesting Times

By Roger Phillips, Owner and Operator of Fight Focused Concepts

I don’t know…….

I have always resisted the sleazy marketing of fear mongering and I have never donned a tin foil hat in order to sell courses.


It seems as if America has changed to the point that the need for “brown stinky stuff hitting the fan” training has reached a level never before seen in my 19 years of training and 13 years of instructing.

When we look at the fact that 50% of this Country hates us with a passion…….30% of the Country would be perfectly alright if we were dead…….20% of the Country would jump at the chance to actually kill us, as long as they thought they could get away with it……and another 20% would sit back and let it happen just to protect themselves from being targeted.

I do not feel those numbers are exaggerated. There is a war going on in America, a war where winning at the polls has only deepened the hatred and widened the divide.

There is one thing that I know about progressives………and that is that they will never stop.

Yes, I am going to be teaching more and more rifle courses.

Yes, I will teach CQB courses every chance that I get.

People can sit back and make fun of this blog entry or this plan. But, I am serious and I think we all better look very closely at the reality of our America and wrap our head around the fact that we are on a very slippery slope. We need to honestly evaluate where we think this Country is headed. Do you think that everything is fine? Do you think it is going to get better? Do you think the progressives are ever going to stop?

I don’t.

I have finally made up my mind and I am going to begin speaking about this. And when I do, please realize it is not over the top sleazy marketing and it is not anti-government stupidity.

In my mind, it is a reality.

For those of you who do not live in a liberal hell hole like I do, you may not understand where I am coming from. But here, I am out numbered and surrounded……….and that fact is made perfectly clear to me everyday.

It took me 19 years of firearms training to finally write this blog entry. I have thought about writing this for over a year. These are very personal thoughts that I have held in for a very long time. I felt it was extremely important to finally put these thoughts out there to my friends.

  1. My feeling are that the 2nd Amendment is soon going to be put to a test. Not so much as removal but rather if ‘We the People’ will stand up actually use it for what it was put in place for. We no longer have the Government our forefathers gave us. It has not been here for many years.
