— Upgrading A Vintage Shotgun – Remington 870 Wingmaster

It’s said (by “them”) that everyone should have a shotgun! Well, I agree.  I’ve been looking for the past couple of years.  I was think Semi-Auto but they cost more than I want to spend on a firearm that I’ll have merely for fun.  I’ve thought about new shotguns, but I don’t like most of…

— Why the AR-15 Cannot Be Banned – They multiply!!!

When you look at the AR-15 rifle, you see the height of contemporary firearm technology.  Technological improvements do not stop, and that includes with firearms.  The musket, and the revolvers, were always doomed to extinction.  Much contemporary firearms technology has met on the AR-15 platform.  There are more than 160 manufacturers, and thousands of companies…

— Drake White — Singing In A VW Bus

If you didn’t know it, I’m digging this musician named Drake White.  He’s come out of no where to sing a couple of really good songs, Making Me Look Good Again, and Grin’in. In this video, he’s singing a song called, The Coast Is Clear (Run With The Bulls).  I don’t know if it’s one…

— Drake White — Great Musician You Haven’t Heard Of… Yet!

Have you ever heard of Drake White?  Yea, that’s what I thought.  I heard him one day while at lunch in one of our amazing Texas saloons.  I stress that, because, I’m not sure what genre he fits within.  I like “Americana” music and I think he probably qualifies.  The themes of some of his…

— The Yellow Rose Of Texas — An Ironic Origin of the Song

You’ve heard the song, The Yellow Rose Of Texas, right?  Have you ever wondered what it was about?  (If you have, you’re probably a Texan).  Regardless of all of the famous singers over the past 100 years that have sang a version of it, what would you say if I told you that that original…

— I Give Up… I Forgive All White People For Slavery (Not That It Matters).

Do I really have to say it?  Are we really living in such crazy times that we have zero perspective?  Well, apparently we are!  You have people seriously claiming that all white people suffer from “White Privilege”.  But the only way “whites” (doesn’t that sound derogatory) don’t suffer of this hence hidden disease, is through…

— How Are Democrats Blaming Republicans For Slaves Being 3/5ths Of A Man?

Every so often I hear a person say something about America’s history…  Usually, it is some angry Democrat reminding those that have the audacity to believe that America is fundamentally, a good country; that in the past, Americans thought black people were 3/5ths of a person.  Now is that fair? No, it’s not quite “fair”. …

— It IS Time For A Color Blind Government…

It’s time to end this!  Alot of people SAY that we should have a Color Blind “Society”; but well, the irony of it all, is that they don’t really want a color blind society.  Many of the people who claim they want one, always seem to support Affirmative Action and other programs that benefit some,…

— The Best Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Fighter EVER

Kazushi Sakuraba.  That’s right.  I said EVER.  I’m just getting to the Punch.  Let’s not argue about this.  He’s the best!  His record may not be perfect (at 26W-17L; yikes).  But he changed MMA for all those who came after him.  ‘And he was ALWAYS fun to watch. He Made MMA An Art Form At…

— Mexico And The United States — Are We Really Good Neighbors?

Yes, we do share a common border.  The US and Mexico are neighbors.  But are we good neighbors?  Any two people can live next door to each other, but that is only enjoyable and comfortable, when both feel their property (and sovereignty) is being respected by the other.  We have to ask ourselves, if either…

— Did The Russians Really Hack The US Election? — Who Do You Trust???

Listen…  Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump.   It’s over!  Trump will be President in 17 days; but instead of accepting the outcome, many Democrats are claiming that the Russians “hacked” the election and therefore the US must take some action against them… Obama responded by kicking out 35 personnel associated with the Russian Diplomatic mission…

— My Mistake. Apparently Some Of Us Are Determined To Be Slaves!

Remember Slavery?  When you didn’t get to make any decisions over your own life?  When you couldn’t pick up and leave anytime you wanted to?  When a master (or mistress) got to make your decisions for you… over what you ate, what you wore, and who you got to talk to?  When you had to…

— Is It An “Assault Rifle”, or a “Contech Rifle?”

Expecting Firearms to NOT evolve despite the natural progression of technology, would be akin to expecting the car NOT to evolve.  Think about a 1955 Mercedes 300 SL and a 2016 Mercedes Gullwing.  Both cars share a direct lineage, and were/are the height of automotive technology at the times they were built, and the 1955…

— The Battle Of Blair Mountain — Have you Heard of it?!?!

What If I told you that at one point in Americas history, up to 13,000 people took up arms and fought nearly 3500 police, government officials, government-supported corporations, and military personnel?  And what if I told you that more than a million rounds were exchanged between Americans in that battle over a 3-day period? ‘And…

— The Darkside Of White-Washing the American Civil War, and its Monuments

There is no doubt that the Civil War was rough.  It pitted American against American; and family member against family member.  It was about keeping the nation together, and States Rights, – Yes, largely due to some states wanting to allow the ownership of people.  Abraham Lincoln, and the Republicans fought to end the practice, …

— “Magazines” or “Clips” — An Idiots Guide

OK, I thought I’d make this so simple that even a Politician could understand it.  I’m going to explain the difference between a “clip” and a “magazine”.  I’m going to try my best to be non-partisan and just explain it.  I’m not going to point out the fact that “supposedly” smart people like; Harry Reid,…

— Two Aesop’s Fables — And Contemporary America

Aesop was a Greek, wise man, Philosopher, and story-teller who lived around the year 620-560 B.C..  He wrote hundreds of fables (or stories with lessons) that have survived since he wrote them.  His fables were adapted into many fairy tales that you likely recognize, including such tales as, The Boy Who Cried Wolf.  If you…

— Some Illegal Alien Border Invasion Photos – To Brighten Your Day

We all know the Southern Border of the United States is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and even countries from the Middle East, and Africa.  We literally have millions of Illegal Aliens living in our country benefiting from resources that they are not entitled to. …

— The End Of “TOP GEAR” — And The End Of An Era

Well, the BBC show Top Gear is coming to an end.  The show’s main star, Jeremy Clarkson, has become legendary.  His wit and dry humor is one of those characteristics you can’t forget.  Now… We all knew this day would come eventually but if I’m honest, I thought the show would end after one of…

— America Is NOT “A Democracy” — STOP SAYING THAT!!!

People… Why do you insist on calling America a “Democracy?”   It is NOT NOW, NOR EVER HAS BEEN! The United States is a Representative Constitutional Republic. That means that we (1) vote for our representatives,  (2) have a Constitution, and we (3) are a Republic. Representatives “REPRESENT” the people that vote for them.  Representatives ARE…

— Top 10 Things Watkins Says — Excuse The Language

When I was a young man… I spent some of my years guarding nuclear weapons and working in restricted areas in which our job was to shoot at people when they entered our areas incorrectly.  Yea, Remember when New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, said that college-age kids were not responsible enough to deal with firearms?…

— To Build Or Not To Build… A Border Fence

Remember when the American People told THEIR government that they did NOT want a border fence?  Well, the reason you don’t remember that is because THAT NEVER HAPPENED!!! Americans want a border fence and they want it now!  Truth be told, Americans have wanted a border fence for about 40 years, but US Presidents and…

— Kohler “One Night” Cough Syrup — Its Got What In It???

I love old Americana.  Especially in the form of old photos (such as…), cars, buildings and (architecture).  Now one thing I’ve never really thought about, is old time medicine bottles.  But I gotta tell you.  They can be pretty interesting.  They’re like a time machine!  They capture an era long gone when healthcare was a…

— Great Web Site — “Lost, Texas”

Every once in awhile you find a web site that it so interesting you cannot stop reading.  Well, I’ve found another one of those. “Lost, Texas” [http://lost-texas.com]… is a simple/basic WordPress blog site that lists some of the many ghost towns, historic villages, and other abandoned architecture located throughout the state. ‘Now many states have…

— December 2014 — The Day The US Hit $18 Trillion of Debt

Well here we go again… It seems like just yesterday I was congratulating you because the US National Debt hit 17 Trillion Dollars.  But now… I’m congratulating you because we’ve just went over 18 Trillion Smackeroonies. We hit $17,000,000,000,000 on 18 October 2013, but in a little over a year… we added a trillion and…

— Do You Remember That Guy Who Fought City Hall? And Won (Kinda)!

Yea, I know they say you can’t fight City Hall.  But Marvin Heemeyer did.  And he did so with a modified Komatsu Bulldozer that would, fairly or unfairly, be dubbed, the “Killdozer” — Unfairly, because it didn’t actually kill anyone. Fairly because it was a sinister piece of garage-engineered, perfection built for one specific purpose…

— In The End, We Will Be Either Libertarians Or Slaves

If you haven’t noticed what has been going on in our society, culture, and our country as a whole, you are either blind, party-loyal (of which no one should be a loyal-Democrat or loyal-Republican), or you are socialist-leaning. The United States was founded under the acknowledgement that the INDIVIDUAL human being has Natural (or God…

— The Dukes Of Hazzard, The General Lee, and… America!

The Dukes Of Hazzard was a TV show that ran for 6 Seasons between 1979 and 1985.  It was based upon the crazy antics of the Duke family.  And EVERY boy of a certain age loved the show.  They loved the cars, car chases, car jumps, funny music, car crashes, and Daisy Duke (whom, not…

— Touching Picture From The Korean War

Every once in awhile, I run across a picture that’s both tough to look at, yet I cannot take my eyes off of it.  And I’ve found another one.  I don’t know where it came from (although, I can assume a military cameraman), but it’s safe to assume it was taken by another Soldier, or…

— [FLASHBACK] – American History In Black And White

I happened across this video of David Barton regarding his book American History In Black And White.  I’m assuming this video is from his DVD that shares the name of the book but I’ve never seen the video.  Regardless, This book is so good I thought it was worth posting about. If you don’t know…

— A Practical Argument ABOUT Gun “Control”

The internet is littered with vast numbers of articles, both against and for, Gun Control.  So, what can it hurt to add one more? I like to think this is a practical argument.  It’s practical because it does not deal with the dream of Gun Control.  Guns are there, here, and everywhere.  They helped build…

— You Know You’re Becoming A Classy Older Gentleman…

There comes a point in a mans life that he realizes he is no longer a spring chicken.  When he’s no longer the kind of guy that is interested in chasing the ladies around.  Where he’s seen it all and is no longer interested in playing the games.  Where he’s only interested in women who…
