Americans; It’s time for us to have a discussion. It’s not a pleasant discussion, but it is an important discussion about which path we want to travel down. Do we choose to continue on a path that led the US to become one of the great civilizations in the history of the world? — Or […]Read More — Another Open Letter About Liberty & Freedom – [An Exercise In Futility]
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 […]Read More — Airbus A350 XWB Formation Flight — Damn Impressive
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 […]Read More — To Build Or Not To Build… A Border Fence
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 […]Read More — America Is Not A Monarchy — No More Bush’ or Clintons
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 […]Read More — Kohler “One Night” Cough Syrup — Its Got What In It???
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 […]Read More — Great Web Site — “Lost, Texas”
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 […]Read More — December 2014 — The Day The US Hit $18 Trillion of Debt
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). […]Read More — Valerie June — My Latest Musical Infatuation
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 […]Read More — Do You Remember That Guy Who Fought City Hall? And Won (Kinda)!
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 […]Read More — An Old School Review for the — Glock Clipdraw
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 […]Read More — Civil Asset Forfeiture — Today and Tomorrow
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 […]Read More — The 8 Types Of Libertarians – And You Thought They Were All The Same!
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 […]Read More — Waste Some Time! – Random Border Nature Images
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 […]Read More — In The End, We Will Be Either Libertarians Or Slaves
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 […]Read More — The Dukes Of Hazzard, The General Lee, and… America!
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 […]Read More — Is It Amnesty, Or Is It Anarchy??
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 […]Read More — Are The Rich Getting Richer? — It’s A Good Thing
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 […]Read More — The Problem With The President – He’s Never Been In A Fight
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 […]Read More — Touching Picture From The Korean War
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 […]Read More — [FLASHBACK] – American History In Black And White
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 […]Read More — A Practical Argument ABOUT Gun “Control”
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 […]Read More — You Know You’re Becoming A Classy Older Gentleman…
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 […]Read More — Sequestration And Government Shutdown — And We’re Still Here…
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.

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 […]Read More — Americans — We Are All Serfs and Subjects — Take A Knee
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 […]Read More — Do You Hate The “Tea Party”? — Why???
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 […]Read More — The Fountainhead — A Movie Review Of An Ayn Rand Book From 1949
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 […]Read More — That Time Americans Fought Government — The Battle Of Athens, Tennessee
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 […]Read More — Ken Block And Gymkhana 6
We seem to have a bunch of people out there who think that they are so self-important that they feel the need to get the Washington Redskins to change their name for fear of offending Native Americans. But the problem is that it’s not the Native Americans who brought up this issue. It’s the people […]Read More — Washington “Redskins”, What’s In A Name? — Is This Important?
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.

[…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!

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.

Ron Howard has created another powerhouse film. This film is based upon the 1976 Formula One Championships. If you’re not a fan (or familiar) with “F-1”, it involves numerous races where the drivers battle it out for points and the driver [and car manufacturer] who accumulates the most points at the end of the season […]Read More — “Rush” A Movie By Ron Howard — My Quick Opinion

Yes, I’m aging myself. But it’s because I’ve just realized the X-Files is on Netflix. Being the TV fanatic that I am, I thought I’d remind all of the semi-old timers about the best X-files episodes. If you’re too young to remember the X-Files run on TV, this can also be your guide of must-see […]Read More — The Three Best X-Files Episodes
As per my Review-Writing style, I’m going to be vague because I don’t dare tell you how the story goes. Based on the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gatsby is Baz Luhrman’s take on The Great Gatsby. Now if you liked Moulin Rouge (which I do), you’ll find the mix of filmed footage, footage from […]Read More — Gatsby — A Quick (And Vague) Review
OK, I’m kinda going through a “Roaring 20’s” phase nowadays. Partly based on some basic research I did in order to compare Prohibition to Obamacare, but it seems like a fun time in America.
