— 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”. …

— 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…

— 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…

— Are We Living In A Police State? — Yet???

We may just be there right now!  The US Government is doing things that no government before it had the technology to do.  By doing so, it has successfully wrestled Liberty, Freedom, and Privacy away from Americans.  But not from distant, anonymous “Americans” who might be terrorists or criminals; because that would be far too…

— 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…

— Why Liberals Are Afraid Of Black Conservatives — Great Read

Now, I don’t consider myself a “Conservative” personally, however, I understand and trust Conservatives because I don’t believe that they are for a larger, more centralized government [as Liberals have proven themselves to be].  I do believe that most Conservatives… are Libertarian by nature, but that is probably just my hope. Wayne Dupree addresses some…

— 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…

— 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…

— The NEXT American Revolution — There’s No Need To Fear It!

I keep hearing those, many of whom I consider(ed) intelligent, thinking, and informed people, say silly things.  One of those silly things concerns the future of the United States.  They proclaim: “Ohh, We’ll never have a revolution!”  Now, despite the fact that one should Never say “Never”, I find it fascinating that they may actually…

— That Guy Has A Point — The Democrat Party Has A Poor History

I don’t know who this guy is but he makes some points that are damn-near lost to history concerning the Democrat party.  And what’s funny is that EVERYTHING he says is historically accurate and open to your full research.  It’s a bit long but… I didn’t find it at all boring. It is unfortunate that…

— 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…

— We’re All Slaves Now — Frederick Douglass Says…

You have to love Frederick Douglass.  I came across this photo and it seemed kinda fitting.  It seems to be the same message that one heard while living in Germany during the Nazi’s; or those who lived in Russia during Communism.  Scary because some of us feel like that now.   What about you??? A Guy…

— Wealth Is Created — NOT, Stolen From You!

As Facebook has recently released its Initial Public Offering (IPO) of stock into the market, we have another “teachable moment” [as some would call it].  What makes this so relevant is the seeming ease at which many suggest that they are somehow entitled to the money of others.  We’ve all heard the chants concerning “fair…

— Leaders Or Presidents

I continue to hear people say it… and it disturbs me each time it enters my ear!  What could make a man cringe as though someone screeched a chalkboard with their fingernails while standing on a screaming pig’s tail while simultaneously listening to a drunk biker cussing in front of a troop of 7 year-old…

— Make Mine Freedom — Anti-Socialism Cartoon — 1948

So, you think the discussion we’re having now in the US about the role of Socialism/Communism is NEW and that it is not a battle we’ve been having for over a half century.  Welp, here’s the proof;  It was a Harding College cartoon called Make Mine Freedom.  Its pretty self explanatory. Now, You’ve seen it. …

— Penn Jillette On Obama’s Drug Use — Good Points!?!?

Penn Jillette has a way of thinking that you can respect.  Now he is a Libertarian for sure, but even if you are not, you have no choice but to recognize the points he’s making as legit and logically conceived.  You may not agree with him, but you can’t say he’s “wrong” because his arguments…

— Police Department Drones — Now It Begins

I just saw a poll that asked the question, “Do you believe Police Departments should operate drones”?  Most people who responded to the non-scientific poll (which is why I’m not publishing it), still believe that Police Departments SHOULD NOT have Drones and I Agree. Now, I’m not concerned with the tiny drones that a department…

— Nigel Farage ; At It Again — Making Sense

Alright, I’m neither a “Good follower”, or a “Blind Follower”.  I take pride in my ability to logically process information other attempt to feed me.   BUT there is one dude that makes sense to me and that is Nigel Farage. As a member of UKIP, he tries to ensure that Europe and the EU cause…

— Three Quotes By Abraham Lincoln — Sounds About Right!

I find it interesting how people use quotes by Abraham Lincoln.  Some use quotes to support their beliefs in the role of government when it fits their goals.  As an example, numerous presidents have quoted Lincoln.  Many of those people will quote him in order to suggest we should support the government.  But they always…

— The Facebook Guy And Socialism

Have you ever gotten into those random arguments on Facebook with “friends” of your friends that you don’t even know?  I just got into another one of those.  It was over an allegory I made about socialism.  This guy did the entire condescending thing on me and I had to respond and here it goes. …

— Hey, That’s A Good Point — Government Hyporcrisy and Dependency

Alright, now here’s a good point.  There is actually nothing I can say about this one.  I think it makes its own point perfectly.  Apparently, we’re fine with humans becoming dependent, but wild animals… hells’ no! Will all the wild animals starve to death if they are not given free food?  No, but they will…

— Shared Sacrifice And The Government

Now,  I’m not a fan of the concept of “Shared Sacrifice”.  I think it is counter to what America is in the sense that it attempts to lock us all into a relationship that was never intended by our Constitution.  Just look at the language of the Bill Of Rights when it speaks of “No…

— Interesting Dichotomy — Illegal Alchohol, Yet Legal Cocaine

It’s Ironic that in the short history of the United States we’ve went from being a country that had legal cocaine, to a country that had illegal alcohol (prohibition).  Now we’re not talking about the cocaine that makes you high and entices you into running down the street butt-naked yelling, “SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE…

— The Birth Of A Kingdom — A Poem

Once upon a time, in a lonesome land far far away, Where people had laws and freedoms to say. There was no King; and there were no Subjects, Only written rights and a loathing of disrespect.   Yet nothing is promised and nothing guaranteed, Some will surely fail and some surely succeed, But there were…

— Why Does The Federal Government Own So Much Land??

The Federal Government owns so much property it is ridiculous.  Perhaps it’s me and my Libertarian leanings, but what on earth could justify so much Federal Property (according to the US Bureau of Land Management) still being owned by the Federal Government?  Nothing.  Lets look at it!  — 36.6% of the State of Colorado owned…
