I Carry A Loaded…

Copy of the Constitution. Don’t believe me? Stop me on the street, in the market or anywhere else. I can draw it out almost as fast as I can my weapon. The “pocket” versions of ALL of our foundaing documents are available from many sources. I got mine from the Heritage Foundation, (www.heritage.org), for a

A Blue-eyed Guest Essay, Redux.

This is the second guest essay by a very dear friend of mine. I can only hope, one day, to be able to express sentiments such as this as eloquently as she. Enjoy this, every word, for all it’s worth. I sincerely hope there will be a “#3” and more. Thank you, M’Lady! Where’re We

Circle analogy. Revisited.

I made an analogy the other day in the podcast. I used a circle to describe it. The farther right you go, you’ll end up left. The farther left you go, you’ll end up right. I realize, today, that a circle might not have been the best illustration. So I’ll amend it. Let’s use a

As A Matter Of Fact, I AM “Entitled”!

You might be, too. But there are others who are not. I’m growing resentful. Calling different public welfare and other benefits “entitlements” is misleading, mis-characterizing, obfuscatory and just plain wrong. Here’s something I don’t get. Of all the waste and such in government, what are Veterans’ benefits, Social Security and Medicare, (benefits that are TRUE

I’ve HAD IT With Conservatives!

Oh, dear reader! Please don’t take this in the wrong way! I am still way to the right of Genghis Khan. Joe McCarthy still looks at me and thinks: “DAY-UM!”. The Duke and Ronald Reagan are in heaven wondering why they never shook my hand. But there’s a lot at stake in the next many

An Area of Plaintive Concern.

Area of CONCERN. Even if you only ever visit websites that begin with “WWW” you’ll see evidence of this. Lots of evidence. I am seeing more and more websites, (replete with spam and traffic tracking engines), actively seeking people to don camouflage clothing, buy military surplus or new commercially made gear, (or kit, as some

A Compassionate Fight

We are a compassionate people. I am a compassionate person. At least I’d like to think so. But we all have limits, don’t we? From the number of times you’ll get a toothache before going to a dentist, the time we’ll spend on hold or the number of times a kid says “mom! mom! mom!”

MY Take On This Day, (or two).

On this day, (The anniversary of the day Billy Joe McAlester jumped off the Tallahatchie bridge), I had JUST sat down. Hadn’t even scrolled yet. Saw a “synopsis” that I want to find the video for, but hadn’t yet. Congressman Kelley, (R-PA), represents the district around Pittsburgh. WHAT happens here is, (just like all of

An Open Letter to the LEFT…

Seriously? Do you HONESTLY believe you’re “convincing” anyone that your arguments have ANY merit….AT ALL? Do you really, truly believe that your tactics are doing you any good? Let me clue you in on a secret. It’s not helping. Or, to be more accurate, it IS helping. The RIGHT. Yes, that’s right, the RIGHT. The
