— 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…

— 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…

— We’ve Got A New President — And The World Is Still Here.

OK, We recently had Inauguration day 2017.  It went by without a hitch.  The ceremony was great and many of us have lost one of our main reasons to complain, while admittedly, others amongst us now have a new reason to do so…  His first business day arrived and he signed a few Orders to…

— 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…

— 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…

— My Ancestry DNA Results

Alright!  Back in May, I wrote about how I was gonna try Ancestry DNA to see what my DNA points back to.  And after a job change, a nasty hail storm, a totaled car, a crazy political season, and a holiday or two; I’m finally gonna write about what I learned.  I was curious to…

— 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 Hypocrisy of [SOME] Conservatives

They label themselves as Conservatives, but they have always been in the Republican Party.  Poor babies; they didn’t get their way and now they don’t want their party’s nominee to win. Why waste time reminding them that they are, in fact, Republicans?  Why confirm to them that the next President WILL BE either a Republican…

— Trying out Ancestry DNA — This will be interesting…

[After You Read This. Go Read My Results] OK, I’ve always thought that getting my DNA analyzed might be kind of interesting.  I mean, who doesn’t want to know where their “Ancestors,” or at least their “genes” came from?  Would it change your outlook on life, if you learned something significant about where your genes…

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 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, …

— Santa Got Arrested On The Southern Border!

OK, What would you say if I told you Santa got arrested on the Southern Texas (and US, I Guess) border?  Well, he did! Kinda…  Here’s what went down: The US Border Patrol received a report from a local rancher, of a possible subject, dressed as Santa, attempting to illegally enter the US.  But this…

— “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,…

— Ted Cruz?! Come On Already!!!

Now I’ve already predicted the Next US President (3 years in advance btw). It’s going to be Ted Cruz! But his campaign has lost some energy and momentum. I’ve given him some extremely valuable advice (albeit free advice) to consider regarding his campaign. And inexplicably, he isn’t even listening to me… So unfortunately, I think…

— 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…

— 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?…

— Airbus A350 XWB Formation Flight — Damn Impressive

Since we are “Boeing Country” here in the US, most of us didn’t really get to see this video from December 2014 entitled “Family Flight”, but it is impressive.  Not only is it a great propaganda coup for Airbus (they have done it for other platforms).  The videography is spectacular.   It’s kinda like a Red-Bull…

— An Old School Review for the — Glock Clipdraw

Every once in awhile, you run into something that you’ve never even thought about and you just want to write an old-school (like it’s 1994 and the internet is new) review of it.  For me, I’m reviewing the Clipdraw. Have you ever heard of Clipdraw?  No!? Me neither – until I was perusing Amazon for…

— Waste Some Time! – Random Border Nature Images

It’s easy to get wrapped up in all of the BS, politics, and illegal activity that takes place on our southern, Texas border.  But the border can be an amazingly picturesque location with a diverse ecosystem.  Waste some time here with some of these random images of animals from hidden ranch and hunting cameras. There’s…

— Are The Rich Getting Richer? — It’s A Good Thing

Are The Rich Getting Richer??? The short-answer is: “Yes”, but it’s not a bad thing! The long-answer is: Well… The long answer requires you to be reasonable and think like a Libertarian (I know you’re scared, but let us try it anyway). When Socialists, Anarchists, Communists, basically ALL of the “ists” (with the exception of…

— 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…

— Road Bike Party – ‘Never Seen That Before!

Alright!  Every once in awhile you see something that… you just couldn’t fathom seeing and you would not have believed – if you didn’t see it with your own two eyes.  Well, I’ve run across another thing like that.  Is it a guy jumping out of an airplane without a parachute and landing in a…

— The Fountainhead — A Movie Review Of An Ayn Rand Book From 1949

Back in 1943, Ayn Rand wrote a book called The Fountainhead. I had long known it was turned into a movie, but happened upon it on some obscure Cable channel that I’d never actually heard of [It was like channel #1784 or something].  But I thought I’d check it out being the Ayn Rand, Libertarian-type…

— Ken Block And Gymkhana 6

I dig cars, I’ve owned a quite a few of them from Pontiac’s, Chevy’s, VW, Jeeps, BMW’s, Nissan’s, and Mercedes. I used to sell cars.  I’ve driven lots of great one. I dig people who create crazy cars, I dig race cars, and I also dig people who can do the impossible with them.  And…

— Kelly McGarry – Red Bull Rampage Mountain Bike Run

With the proliferation of camera systems such as GoPro, there is no amount of crazy antics taking place.  We’ve seen people driving racecars on city streets, and we’ve seen the people base jumping with wingsuits.  Now most of us can’t imagine doing any of that.  But we can all (mostly) ride a bike.  Watch Kelly…

— Easter Eggs For Hitler — Great Historic Photo

Happen to come across this photo of a couple of World War 2, Artillery Soldiers doing what dudes with explosives always seem to do.  Write messages on them, Just for the hell of it!  Wouldn’t Hitler be mad if he saw these guys.  Great picture though! But, this practice of writing messages on destructive devices…
