Quote of the Week:

HRC: “I never sent or received any classified material. They are retroactively classifying it. … I have absolutely no concerns about it whatsoever.”


Chuck Todd: “There is an open FBI investigation into this matter about how you may have handled classified material,” he said. “Are you 100 percent confident that nothing is going to come of this investigation?”


HRC: “I am 100 percent confident,” Clinton replied. “This is as security review that was requested, it is being carried out and it will be resolved.”

We need to quit worrying about 'being historic'. What kind of outcome do voters think they will get if they elect people who's primary purpose is to be remembered in history? Everyone remembers Ghengis Khan!

"It's immoral for governments to conscript slaves" -- If they're already slaves, the Morality part was already violated. Since slaves were deemed "property", the Owner could do whatever he damn well pleased. The question is: Is a citizen the govt's slave/property? If not, what is the Constitutional basis for the draft?

So now I switch my support for President to the libertarian party.
It is hard to believe my country has devolved so far into a socialistic society.
We are so formed and controlled by government schooling and media that we no longer can make decisions without being told what to do.
Socialism is a cancer that requires a surgical procedure to remove.
We are sold what to do by advertising techniques and buy our so called representatives already chosen for us like we are sold bottled water or laundry detergent.

Libertarians have two inherent problems that I just happen to find admirable, but self defeating. First, Libertarians by the nature of their mentality don't want to be told what, how, or when to do anything. Their "freedom mentality" prevents them, as a group, from seeing their goals through to an end. Second, they aren't willing to compromise when it comes to freedom. I love that about them. However, these people by majority are free thinkers,.. deep thinkers,... critical thinking thinkers,... socially and fiscally responsible,... and far better Christ followers than the so called Christians of our society as they are not as hypocritical. With ninety-eight percent of the population too stupid to walk and chew gum at the same time, Libertarians sound like martians speaking a foreign language.

In fact, today's campuses mimic ideological boot camps. Tenured professors seek to indoctrinate young people in certain preconceived progressive political agendas. Environmental studies classes are not very open to debating the "settled science" of man-caused, carbon-induced global warming -- or the need for immediate and massive government intervention to address it. Grade-conscious and indebted students make the necessary ideological adjustments.

Trying to politely "get along" with someone who is condoning violent aggression--including against YOU--is fairly stupid, not to mention counter-productive. "Hey, let's agree to disagree. Your opinion that I should be forcibly robbed, and caged if I resist, is equally valid to my opinion that neither of us should be robbed." Ummmm, no. It isn't. Statists SHOULD be made to feel as much guilt and shame as possible, because they are advocating something destructive and immoral. If someone was advocating mass murder, would you be all polite and civil to them, and talk as if their position is acceptable? I hope not.
Larkin Rose

“Rights aren’t rights if someone can take them away. They’re privileges. That’s all we’ve ever had in this country, is a bill of temporary privileges. And if you read the news even badly, you know that every year the list gets shorter and shorter. Sooner or later, the people in this country are gonna realize the government does not give a fuck about them! The government doesn’t care about you, or your children, or your rights, or your welfare or your safety. It simply does not give a fuck about you! It’s interested in its own power. That’s the only thing. Keeping it and expanding it wherever possible.”
George Carlin

If Hillary can win 6 coin tosses in a row, anything is possible!

Rush and Me

If you're an Accidental Tourist visiting from some other celestial rock, you don't know the significance of the passing of Rush Limbaugh (2/17/21). Look it up. You'll find everything from long-winded laudatory to wretchedly putrid bias. Political punditry has a way of bringing out the best in people and worst in scum. I should know - having frittered away 55 years of an otherwise exemplary life, making meters bounce and management cringe at some of America's Heritage radio stations in Major Markets across the country. Fortunately, audiences were more tolerant most of those pre-Cancel Culture years and the worst I suffered was the occasionally Breached Contract, otherwise known as Delayed Compensation (if you have decent attorneys - an oxymoron, I know). But I digress...My on-air relationship with El Rushbo is detailed highlighted in my book, " 50 Stories: 50 Years in Radio ." For the incurably inquisitive, here is the show from Atlanta, October 1990.   Profess

The Color of Crime

In the Age of BLM, here are some stats you may find informative - maybe even useful: • Black males age 18-35 years of age are only 1.8% of the U.S. population, yet have committed 52% of homicides from 1980-2008. Black males (all ages) are only 6% of the U.S. population, yet commit 46% of all violent crimes, and 50% of the gun homicides. If Blacks were removed from the equation, the U.S. gun homicide rate would be equal to Great Britain's, who have some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the world. • The Black homicide rate is 17 per 100,000, a rate over 9x that of the White rate, and comparable to some of those most murderous countries in the world. If the homicide rate for the U.S. were the White-only rate, the homicide rate would drop 84%, making the U.S. rate comparable to European countries. • According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics 2018 survey of criminal victimization, there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (ex

As Seen on Facebook

Despite its legions of drawbacks, Facebook is still the primary congregator of commentary that occasionally produces something compelling, informative, revealing, unique, insightful. You decide. Here's a recent post that - remarkably - drew little response.... "I'm by no means a tough talker or an advocate for violence when others avenues remain available, but we have to draw a line somewhere with respect to rights. If we believe that the 2nd Amendment was created to protect the rights of the people from an over-reaching government, then we have to believe that there comes a time to use it. There can be no clearer time then when the government attempts to strip rights from its citizens, even if by some esoteric legal argument they are able to justify it to themselves. If this passes and, by some measure, it is upheld by the Supreme Court, we will have to decide as citizens if we're going to use our 2nd Amendment rights as intended or give them up and comply.
