are you surprised by this?

I will freely – and proudly – admit that I did not watch Obama’s pontificating to the American public this morning.  I may be unemployed, but I definitely have better things to do. 

I will likewise admit that I have not read a great deal of aftermath recapping or reporting… and my blood pressure thanks me for that. 

That said, from my admittedly limited point of view, it would appear to me that […]

a welcome breath of fresh air

Any long-time participant in the ongoing debate surrounding "gun control" and the unjust abrogations of our basic, Constitutionally-protected human rights will be familiar with the phrase Reasoned Discourse, but for those newcomers to the field, allow me to give you a short-and-sweet summation of the idea.

Of late, and in the past, "gun control" supporters have been crying that they want to have a "debate" / "conversation" / "discussion" about the future of "gun […]

lou gagliardi wants to kidnap your children

But she wants someone else to do it for her, so that is ok. 

Unfortunately, the following Twitter conversation will be somewhat disjointed and I will be unable to adequately link to all of the various tweets.  Why?  Because Lou Gagliardi is a spineless coward who, upon realizing what she said, Memory Hole’d the tweets I managed to keep screen captures of.

this is the future of america

My parents keep telling me that it is incumbent upon my generation and the generation after me to fix all of the various economic and political problems that their generation and the generation before theirs have created over the past 50 years.

Why? Because I know what my generation and the next […]

The government is murdering it’s own civilians and it seems like only a few of us are bothering to care or notice. Frankly, that is the most saddening and disturbing prospect of all. The American […]

clarification on the collapse

File this under "Reasons Not to Write Weblog Posts When You are So Angry You Can Hardly See Straight".

Last week, I penned the following quote:

I guess our country had a good run, but welcome to the police state. When an apparently law-abiding citizen and veteran can be gunned down in his own home for owning legal property and being unfortunately related to a family of allegedly law-breaking pikers, this "America" experiment […]

quote of the day – joe huffman

At the end of the Constitutional Conventions that finally dictated the type, form, and nature of the government that was going to guide our new nation back in 1787, an anonymous woman is reported to have asked the inimitable Benjamin Franklin what kind of government he and his compatriots had formed – after all, the average people of the Colonies had little knowledge of what was transpiring behind those closed doors. 

That man’s recorded […]
