— 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”.  […]

Happy “Texas Independence Day”

Happy March 2nd!  If you’re from, living in, familiar with, or moving to, Texas, you’ll know that today is Texas’ Independence Day.  It was this day in March of 1836 that “Texians” (the non-hispanic residents of the area) let Mexico know, they were declaring their independence.  Mexico would send in its military, and the Texas […]

— Sequestration And Government Shutdown — And We’re Still Here…

Yes Sequestration.  Remember that thing? Remember back to the olden days!  The days of yesteryear when Sequestration took effect after a budget couldn’t be compromised and signed (which was good, by the way).  Government threatened drama and turmoil on an unprecedented scale.  Government attempted to threaten the American People, which they hoped would cause politicians […]

— That Time Americans Fought Government — The Battle Of Athens, Tennessee

We are going through a time when the Second Amendment is being challenged because crazy people commit crimes.  Yet, other crazy people – whom we’ll call Politicians – suggest that we should ban some types of firearms (because they look scary).  Merely because those firearms have things like pistol grips, flash suppressors, and detachable magazines […]
