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…

— 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. …

— Where’s Ted Cruz? — He Needs To Find New Advisers (Already)

Alright, I’ve already Predicted Ted Cruz would win the Presidency in 2016. Yes, I predicted it 3 years in advance but apparently, Cruz is getting some bad advice! [Admittedly, I’m beginning to question my prediction of Rand Paul as VP due to his manic and disloyal campaigning thus far] It seems Cruz has probably hired…

— JADE HELM 2015 — Why It Makes So Many People Nervous… Should You Be?

— 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…

— 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…

— 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?…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— Valerie June — My Latest Musical Infatuation

What do you get when you mix blues, jazz, country, western, soul, and American Folk music together?  You get: Valerie June …and she’s my latest musical infatuation.  She’s ultra-unique, has dreadlocks, and is just, ooohh, all-kinds-of-smok’in hooottttt.  And she has a deep southern Tennessee accent (which always seems  make any lady that much more hot). …

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— The Problem With The President – He’s Never Been In A Fight

The problem with Obama is that… He’s never been in a real, actual, physical fight! Now, I’m not talking about a political fight where one side wins the political office and the loser goes home dreaming of what could’ve been (He’s been in 3 of those). I’m speaking of a fight in which one must…

— Touching Picture From The Korean War

Every once in awhile, I run across a picture that’s both tough to look at, yet I cannot take my eyes off of it.  And I’ve found another one.  I don’t know where it came from (although, I can assume a military cameraman), but it’s safe to assume it was taken by another Soldier, or…

— [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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…
