— Upgrading A Vintage Shotgun – Remington 870 Wingmaster

It’s said (by “them”) that everyone should have a shotgun! Well, I agree.  I’ve been looking for the past couple of years.  I was think Semi-Auto but they cost more than I want to spend on a firearm that I’ll have merely for fun.  I’ve thought about new shotguns, but I don’t like most of…

— 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…

— 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,…

— 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…

— 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…

— “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,…

— 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. …

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— 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…

— George Wood and Edward Snowden — The Rundown!

Do you know the name, George Wood?  George Wood was a cover name of a German double-agent who was actually named, Fritz Kolbe.  He was a German citizen who worked for the government of Nazi Germany.  Because of his position, he had access to thousands of documents detailing secret activities of what Nazi Germany was…

— The Three Best X-Files Episodes

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…

— Obamacare=Prohibition & Prohibition=Obamacare

A long, long time ago in America, some silly, but well-intentioned people decided that they wanted to force EVERYONE in America to stop drinking alcohol.  They made a big stink and they used politicians, and they manipulated the public into believing that alcohol was the root of all evil.  ‘That if not for “Fire Water”…

— Screw The “Black Leaders” — We Need “Black Libertarians”

We Need More “Black Libertarians” During the height of the Civil Rights Movement, “Black Leaders”, such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, organized efforts of the black community because they were actually, literally, being discriminated against.  I don’t mean that people didn’t like them (because no one has to like anyone!); but I…

— How I’d Sift Through Your Phone Calls — It’s Conspiracy Time!

Well, the wide-scope security program dubbed PRISM, Edward Snowden, and the National Security Administration (NSA) have been in the news lately.  But not because Government wanted to discuss PRISM, Snowden, or the NSA.  Not because they were being transparent but, because a whistle-blower informed everyone of what was going on.  Government first denied it, until…
