If you disagree with anything I wrote about the Tea Party movement, or if you offer more practical solutions to high school home schooling, post your comment here.

If you can prove me wrong about the Tea Party movement (that it really does love liberty more than it hates Democrats), also post it here.

Five Questions About ObamaCare, Plus, Is the FBI Reinstating COINTELPRO?

April 4, 2010

I asked myself five questions about ObamaCare that just passed into “law”, and I answer those questions. Plus, I raise the issue of the FBI’s (possible) COINTELPRO operations using the Hutaree and other “patriot” groups.

Cover Your Ass(ets). PLus: What a Week In The News!

February 22, 2010

Lots of news items this past week! But first, think about covering your assets and protecting your property. The US government has more debt than can ever be repaid, so the Feds will have to do something to cover their debts. Confiscating all private property would be unprecedented, but I wouldn’t put it past them.

Yes, women, you too can chop firewood if you have to…as well as jump start a dead car battery… Also, getting mad might make you feel better, but what are you going to do about it?

January 29, 2010

What would you do with ten pounds of a vegetable many people abhor? And what do you think of the latest Supreme Court decision to allow corporations to contribute unlimited amounts to political campaign ads?

Who Says We’re Not In Kansas Anymore?

December 13, 2009

Yeah, yeah, yeah…more political BS! But folks, it’s winter. There is no longer a garden to worry about. There is so much dead wood around here that it simply isn’t very interesting writing about collecting it all, from kindling to tree stumps, about cutting it all up with a chain saw, and as far as I’m concerned, one chain saw brand is as good as another. I think we use a Poulon…but I’m sure other brands are fine, as well. And do you really expect me to write an article about what to buy for Christmas? Don’t ask. Buy what you think you might need for the proverbial “sh*t hits the fan” scenario, whether it happens or not. Or gold and silver. Or food. Or chickens. I think I will leave that up to the reader.

Anyway, I was going to post about how the alternative media might not be much better than the MSM, about how the alternative sites, especially the news aggregators, have more truth to tell, but can also sew confusion by issuing contradictory stories and opinion disguided as “news.” Seems these news aggregators, as with most Americans at large, fail to distinguish between “fact” and “opinion,” something English teachers nationwide constantly complain about. But then the item below came across my radar…folks, this sort of reporting is getting serious–Obama might be preparing for some sort of “revolution” scenario–because it is now being reported “overseas”, for instance, in the European Union Times, which appears to be linked to American “patriot” sites such as “American Free Press” (formerly the “Spotlight,” meaning it is probably as infiltrated as the Spotlight was), meaning the “EUTimes” may have little to actually do with Europe. Also there are links to sites that look neo-nazi. And to think, as far as I’ve seen, it all started with the alternative media person I most love to diss, Alex Jones.

Jones had posted on one of his sites, this item about a radio interview featuring Greg Everson of “Heartland USA,” who just happens to be a former law enforcement operative from Kansas (hence the title), about Obama getting US troops within the country, as well as intel operators and law enforcement, prepared for civil unrest. Everson has a link to this interview on his site here, and I first saw the actual article on the DProgram site about some quasi-military martial law exercise that is supposedly in the works. This was the original article that Jones posted, and in a comment at DProgram it was stated that Jones posted the article, but one hour later, took it down. (It was upon learning this that my BS detector turned on.) Thus, the link at the beginning of the paragraph won’t work. See the DProgram link.

It’s Thanksgiving! A Couple O’ Things To Be Thankful About

November 26, 2009

We’re going to a nearby town…nearby is about 40 miles…for a Thanksgiving dinner at a local church. It’s in a town my hubby works in, and we want to be by him this Thanksgiving. Still, our own church is giving its own community Thanksgiving dinner for those who are by themselves or older couples without family in the area or those who can’t afford a big ol’ turkey and the rest of it. I suspect that quite a few churches and other charity groups will be doing this sorta thing this year and even more next year. For instance, there’s a city government which used to give out free turkeys to all of its employees; this year, however, the city council is only giving its employees an “employee dinner.” Budget crunch, you know…however, they aren’t saying why they aren’t giving out the turkeys. Who knows? Maybe this city government gets its turkeys from some federal government turkey farm contractor whose been told by the feds that from now on, all the turkeys have to go to China. For free. Instead of paying them worthless fiat currency we owe them on our national debt, they want something of value instead. The Chinese ain’t stupid, you know!

Anyway, here are a couple of things We the People should probably be thankful for this Thanksgiving:

Anyone hear Al Gore’s heartbeat, lately? That missing “lub-dub” in Al Gore’s heartbeat is about to burst, because what most who read this space already knew–anthropogenic (human caused) global warming is as much of a hoax as the aforementioned Gore’s “man-bear-pig” of South Park fame. So say the now famous <a

companies” as well) were fudging their data after all. This news conveniently comes at a time when Congress critters are trying to pass the infamous cap and trade bill…now, if they pass it, we’ll know for sure it was to make themselves even richer, not to “save the environment”. Who said hackers are all bad? How will Al handle this inconvenient truth? Right now, he seems to be <a

The photo’s caption indicates Gore had drought-stricken New Hampshire release water from a dam for this photo op when it could have helped grow crops. Gore is half-man, half-vampire, and half-pig! And speaking of man-bear-pig…
