— 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,…

— Trump Was A Last Warning — You Should Be Glad He Won!

I get that some of you don’t like Trump.  But here’s something to think about…  You should be glad that he won the election.  Why?!?!  Well because Americans were getting angry.  Not the kind of angry that makes them complain; that happened years ago as they began to notice that the government was beginning to…

— Our American Tragedy — President Obama

Ah, soon it will be 20 January 2017.  And on that day, we will proclaim from the mountain tops that, Obama is Gone! Oh God Almighty… Obama is Gone!  ‘And on that day, there will be a disgusting, horrendous, mess to clean up. The Middle East is more chaotic now than it was when he…

We’re Not Electing A New Jesus… Just A President! — Trump Won

‘Some of you people need to chill the hell out!  You’d think we were voting for a new Jesus or something.  Donald Trump is just a guy.  Some of you act like your hopes and dreams are squashed because a new President, that you don’t like,  won the election.  If that’s the case, you have…

— Do You Actually Own Your House — A Quick Thought

After you’ve made all of the payments on your house, you thought you’d enjoy the evidence of your labor.  You’ve paid oodles and oodles of dollars out for the last 15, 25, or 30 years.  You’ve loaded your house up with furniture, your personal goods, and other useless junk, that took a lifetime to collect. …

— 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…

— OK, I Concede On Ted Cruz. He Will Not Be President!

Yes, I know.  I thought I was impressive when I predicted that the next President was going to be Ted Cruz.  ‘And I made my prediction 3 years before the election. I saw it with my inner eye like a Indian Shaman!  I explained how brilliant he was, and why he would be a good…

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…

— A Real Gunfighter — From California

Lance Thomas was a meager watch store owner in Santa Monica California; of all places.  He was put in the position of having to fight off a few robbers.  He killed 6 would-be robbers and wounded 3 or 4 more over his last few years of his career.  He had no military or police background,…

— 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 Curious Comparison of The IRS… And ISIS

Now, we all hate the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)! Even the people who work for the IRS… hate the IRS.  But there’s a curious comparison that can be made between the IRS, and the Islamic State Of Iraq and Lavant (ISIL), known as Daesh, and technically different, but colloquially called, “ISIS”.  And sure it may…

— 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…

— Liberty, Freedom, the US Government, and Trans-Fats…

So here we are in 2015.  The US Government, through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has unilaterally decided that they will give (allow) manufacturers three years to remove trans-fats from America’s food.  They’ve unilaterally made the Final Determination! …And some people (those who support big government, or trusts big government’s intentions) are cheering the…

— 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…

— Net Neutrality — The “Governet” Is Here

Haven’t you felt it? Like you couldn’t do anything you wanted to do on the internet?  That you couldn’t say what you wanted to say?  ‘Or that you couldn’t post the pictures you wanted?  You couldn’t find a video you wanted to see?  That you couldn’t engage in whatever topic you typed in to the…

— 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…

— America Is Not A Monarchy — No More Bush’ or Clintons

I cannot believe we even need to discuss this but apparently we do.  We have, presumably, millions of Americans out there that are either hoping that Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton runs for President in 2016.  Obviously, we attempt to find names we know.  Yes, all parties attempt to put forth those with the greatest…

— 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…

— Civil Asset Forfeiture — Today and Tomorrow

If you haven’t been paying attention, police have been STEALING from innocent people.  Not like a street-level criminal does; going behind ones back and covertly breaking into their houses to steal chonies, tv’s, and mattress money.  No, they’ve been STEALING money in the fashion that Saddam Hussein or at least Mexican Police do — They…

— The 8 Types Of Libertarians – And You Thought They Were All The Same!

It’s easy and all too convenient for people to think there is only one kind of “Libertarian”. Those who choose to believe this seem all to comfortable grouping all Libertarians into one monolithic, group-thinking mob. They would admit that it would be unfair to treat other groups this way. Truth be told, it’s partly the…

— 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…

— Is It Amnesty, Or Is It Anarchy??

Alright!  So in the pantheon of topics I didn’t think I’d ever get the urge to engage in, is Illegal Immigration… Yet, here we are! But lets clarify something.  I, as a Libertarian, am not against anyone trying to get into the United States because they believe they can build a better life (without taxpayer…

— 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…

— 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…

— Americans — We Are All Serfs and Subjects — Take A Knee

All Hail King Sam!!! My Fellow Americans, we now have a King!  The King determines your taxes, the laws you’ll live by, the food you can eat/drink,  and even, where you can build your house on your own property.  Our King even determines the level to which you can exercise your rights and freedoms (despite…

— Do You Hate The “Tea Party”? — Why???

Are you one of those people who hate the Tea Party?  As A Libertarian, I’m used to being distrusted or otherwise stereotyped for my beliefs; but it’s different! Libertarians are looked at as insensitive (because our beliefs revolve around the Individual), perhaps callous (because we believe that caring for people does not require treating them…

— 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…

— 18 October 2013 — The Day The US Hit $17 Trillion of Debt

[…But We Have Since Hit $18 Trillion – December 2014] Hey great!  Congrats.  Today, 18 October 2013, is the day the US National Debt hit 17 Trillion Dollars.  That’s $17,000,000,000,000!  It is a number so high that no one can fathom how much space it requires to fill up with Benjamins ($100 bills), let alone…

— Congratulations On Your Obamacare – Enjoy!

Okay, so it’s been more than a week since Americans have been allowed the great honor of registering for their mandatory healthcare INSURANCE; and surprise!!! What people are finding is exactly what they were warned they were gonna find.  An increase in costs and price, inefficiency in operation, and a lack of customer empathy due…

— George Wood and Edward Snowden — The Rundown!

Do you know the name, George Wood?  George Wood was a cover name of a German double-agent who was actually named, Fritz Kolbe.  He was a German citizen who worked for the government of Nazi Germany.  Because of his position, he had access to thousands of documents detailing secret activities of what Nazi Germany was…
