— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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. …

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— [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…

— Practical Freedom — And More Practical Liberty

You can’t have freedom if you want government to force people to make “good” decisions. Freedom requires a recognition that people are free to make good decisions sometimes.  But it is also a recognition that people will make bad decisions at other times.  Obviously, we would (as a society) wish to limit bad decisions of…

— Name The Country Built On — Genocide And Slavery

I happened to see this on the internet the other day.  It is one of those items passed around by those who seem to want to ignore the entirety of history and limit themselves by castigating (is that a word?) the US. Part of the reason we, in the US, attack our own history… is…

— Great Moments In Democrat Racist History — Hugo Black

This one is kinda old, but it’s worth watching every once in awhile.  Because, It is funny how quickly, we forget our history.  Hugo Black was truly a doucebag. It’s amazing to think that the party who ended racism in our country is the one labeled as racist (Republican), and the party who -gave way…

— I’m Not Afraid Of….. But I Am Afraid Of …… Government!

“Freedom is sloppy. But since tyranny’s the only guaranteed byproduct of those who insist on a perfect world, freedom will have to do.” — Bill Willingham Now, I’m not afraid of Spiders, Al Qaeda, Rabid Dogs, Scorpions, Gang Members, Rats, Random Brain Aneurysms, Ebola, Burning To Death In My Crashed Car Whilst Trapped inside, Computer…

— Remember When Your Life Was Your Own???

In the distant past, people were free to live their lives as though they owned them here in America.  We used to be a country where your bad decision could very well lead to your own death.  People could take drugs, and drink themselves to death without the government stepping in to tell you what…

— US Gun Sales Soar After Obama Reelection — But Why??

Currently, there are a plethora of articles [such as this one] about the increase in Assault Rifle (and other firearms) sales across the United States.  Now, if you watch the news, it’s all about Obama.  I can’t say it’s ONLY an Obama thing because it happened after Clinton as well (to a lesser extent).  Obviously,…

— Do You Really NOT Like Freedom???

“Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves.” — Lord Byron We are living in a time when our (United States) government is growing… When the Government is taking over more and more of our lives.  When government thinks it knows best how individuals…

— Why I Want Us All To Go Over The Fiscal Cliff

Yeppers, I said it, and I’ll say it again; I want us ALL to go over the Fiscal Cliff… Why you ask? Because I’m a taxpayer who always seems to owe money. Every F-ing year I owe and it pisses me off to no end. I end up owing money and spending months figuring out…

— It’s Not “OUR” Debt — That’s The Government’s Debt

I love when I see those figures saying that each American owes such-and-such thousand dollars when referring to the National Debt.  People use this type of figure when they are trying to put-in-perspective just how much the government is spending. I understand what they’re getting at, and I understand they need a reference point (that…

— Rodriguez — The Singer No One Knew, Except South Africa!

Have you ever awaken to the realization that there was a spectacular singer out there that you never knew about, and that is everything you dig about singer/songwriters? If so, here goes another one for you. Rodriquez!  He was a singer who put out two American recordings back in the 1970’s that are just now…

— Arrest In Los Angeles — And The Charges Against The Police??

Now, we all want people to be safe and we all want police to be safe.  But here’s the thing.  Behavior such as this by those representing government can NEVER be acceptable.  Even if she was back talking them and calling the cops’ sacred mama’s names; she was handcuffed and fully under control.  There was…

— FBI Mine Resistant Armored Vehicles — Really?

I know alot of people don’t seem to care that law enforcement within the united states continues to become evermore paramilitary (SWAT team, Special Operations Forces, Intelligence, Anti-Terror).  But when our Investigators become door-kickers we have a problem.  Does no one see a problem with the Federal Bureau of “Investigations” rocking Mine Resistant Vehicles?  They…

— Way Back When — The Democrats And Republicans

Remember back in the Day when the Democrat Party was crazy and hated everyone and they always tried to divide people into groups and called them all names.. OK, they still do that, but… Now they want support of all of those same groups. What Do They Say (from the left to the right) (man…

— H. B. Zachry — Brilliant Entrepreneur and Great Man — That No One Knows

Back in the day there was this guy named H.B. Zachry.  He would start a construction company called Zachry Construction.  The company was into Building bridges, buildings, freeways, and oil infrastructure.  His company would grow to become the largest contractor in Texas.  Although he was successful and rich, he would donate gobs and gobs of…

— Frederick Douglass — Another Quote

“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or…

— Archer — And Pam’s Lord Byron Back Tattoo

Recently, I’ve found the TV show ARCHER.  One of the best moments is from Season 2 Episode 10, El Secueustro. It is hilarious! But that’s not the point here.  There was one particular scene when it is discovered that Pam used to get into unlicensed fights to make extra money on the side.  Well yada,…

— Japanese Artist Cuts Off His Wiener (Penis) — …And People Eat It!

OK, This is going to be disgustingly gross!  Stop reading NOW if you think you’re going to be sick.  Although It’s extremely funny to publicly post dicknames (oops, I mean “nicknames”).  This story almost put me in shock… and NOTHING horrifies me like penis slicing always seems to do.  Not only am I squirming uncomfortably…
