I know my loyal fans come to this website for my scintillating writing. But I want to point out that I do put some thought and effort into the links and information placed in the side columns. I just gave those a freshening up, and reorganization. They had not been given any attention for quite a while. There is some current prioritization of older links and reference information, along with some new and updates. I encourage you to take a little time to look around … and check out anything that strikes you as potentially interesting.

Preparedness is the Ultimate Act of Optimism from: The Organic Prepper Does this sound familiar? You’re talking to a friend or family member who isn’t on board with preparedness. (And it’s even worse when they think they know what’s going on in the world but garner their so-called “information” from network news sources.) You try for the millionth time to get them to consider stocking up on a few things and they say this: Life’s too short for all of this doom and gloom. Live a little! You’re such a pessimist! My response to this is that preparedness is the ultimate form of optimism. One who practices skills, makes dramatic lifestyle changes, and studies current events critically may come […]
Heading in to Darby from Conner today, we passed this herd of elk. From the photo I counted 67 elk, but could easily be off by quite a bit either way. Regardless, they are beautiful. It is great that there are some good, strong herds here.
I’m told by our household nutritional expert that “beans and rice combine to make a complete amino acid”, which she says is all the food you need to survive on. She rather obviously doesn’t mean that as a whole truth, but I write in support of it as a foundation for keeping you and yours fed. If you are paying attention (safe assumption, cuz you are here) you are rightfully concerned about having a store of food for the day your favorite food store doesn’t. If you are not already well stocked, I recommend your first step to be looking in your pantry to see a year’s supply of beans and rice for all who live under your roof. I […]
The year’s biggest stories and the trend toward an American police state. Posted on January 2, 2014 by PSUSA in Analysis While some “journalists” would have you believe the biggest stories of 2013 were about twerking celebrities and over-hyped real-life courtroom sagas, much bigger events were happening with far more lasting national significance. The foundation of an American police state is already laid and making its existence known, while most of the country remains blissfully focused on sports, reality shows, establishment pseudo-news, and other distractions. It would require an encyclopedia to cover all of the injustices, scandals, and brutality that took place in 2013. This list is designed to illustrate certain trends and significant stories from the past year. […]
4 ‘Magic’ Phrases to Use if Cops Stop You with Pot A lawyer’s advice on how to assert your rights when it comes to drugs and the police. Photo Credit: Shutterstock.com/bikeriderlondon November 21, 2013 | This article originally appeared on Ladybud.com. If you use pot you are a criminal. This is true [according to federal authorities] even in Colorado and Washington, where the feds continue to outlaw cannabis. This is also true in California and other states that provide medical protection. This means the police not only have the right, but the obligation to try and stop you (though state police cannot legally enforce federal law). Fortunately, you do not have to help them. The United States Constitution gives you […]
The project I’m working on today inspires me to fill in my Constitution and Bill of Rights set over at Ada Liberty .com. The left column there has separate pages for the Constitution and a page each for the 1st 10 Amendments. Under each is a page or two describing their loss/destruction. There were a few holes that I’m filling in as background for another writing project. The first fresh addition is on the 6th Amendment. […]
