California VS national anthem

The California NAACP is taking the revisionist history war to the USofA national anthem. They reinterpret Francis Scott Key’s rarely sung third verse to be racist. It has to go. I encourage them to do something about it, and hereby offer an effective strategy. Secede from the union. Establish The People’s Paradise of the Left Coast. Adopt a more suitable national anthem. I recommend, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” by Fred M. Rogers. http://www.idaholiberty.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Mister-Rogers-Neighborhood-.-Neighbor-Song-PBS-KIDS.flv

Mandalay Bay

Now a month after the great mass shooting in Las Vegas is a good time to get a feel for what really happened that night. I figured testimonies, evidence and experiences will all be compiled. The wounded will have died or well on their way to recovery. There will be a plethora of heroic and near-miss stories to help the event capture the imagination. No. that is not what I find. Below are four video news reports that SHOULD BE played in every home. I found these with the following search. You can select other videos to watch, including those published by the fable spinners. Use your own head to figure out which is which. You might note I do […]

Facebook exposed

Facebook is your life. Facebook is where all your friends are. Facebook is your news source. Whatever you think Facebook is likely is mistaken. Here is an article from one of Facebook’s founders. Facebook was built to exploit ‘psychological vulnerability’ – founding pres. Sean Parker, the founding president of Facebook, says the company was designed to “consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible” and warns the platform could affect developing minds in negative ways. At an Axios event Wednesday, Parker, 38, the billionaire co-founder of Napster and an early investor in Facebook, confessed that he has become “something of a conscientious objector” to social media, despite the fact that he made most of his $2.6 billion […]

blah-blah-blah-gun control-blah-blah-blah

In the middle of all the noise from totalitarian government employees and lamestream media is the latest effort at restricting gun ownership. They never lose sight of their goal to have exclusive rights to lethal force. This argument has been won repeatedly by logic and data, but will never go away as long as there are people who lust for power, and never-ending increases in their power. They are hollow-shelled bullies. Bullies understand force. Nothing else. When met with anything remotely approaching equal force, they are cowards. We must never let them catch us napping. Amidst all the gun control yammering are three essays worth reading. I will give you excerpts and links to them. ——————————- Looking at the “gun […]

2006 Idaho governor candidate debate

Seeing Ron Paul championing my main 2006 campaign theme a decade later inspired me to look for this video. I couldn’t find it at the PBS website, so I uploaded a copy I had saved years ago. Debating in front of television cameras live to a state-wide audience was a terrifying to do, but probably the best performance of my political career. My biggest campaign theme was liberal tax credits for scholarships to private schools equal to a maximum of half what taxpayers spend on government schools. We would save money while liberating education. It was a good idea then. It still is.

how wars are made

Downsize DC is a good website with wonderful activist tools. They also have a newsletter by subscription. The article below is a good example. Learn the history they don’t teach in statist schools How Teddy Roosevelt started the chain of events that led to Pearl Harbor. By Perry Willis Retweet I’m reviewing U.S. military history in the run-up to Veterans Day on November 10. I hope to persuade you of three points… Our “patriotic holidays” need to honor soldiers without mischaracterizing U.S. wars. The claim that U.S. soldiers “defended our freedom” is sweet-sounding but false. Freedom may be what our soldiers wanted to defend, but that’s not how our politicians actually used them. We must restrict the ability of politicians […]

the bookshelf

Yesterday I said the bookshelf told the story. Today I will explain. As an overview I will say that in the middle of a move the stuff that made it to my first installed shelf were things that needed little thought to be foremost. Thus the shelf contents clearly have significance to me. Let’s start with the sign “Think Dangerously”. Can there be any doubt that the person who bought and displays it is non-mainstream? Not average? Liberated? Unafraid to challenge norms? I placed the artist modeling figure in a ‘walking the tightrope’ stance. That is the balance between seeming normal and free thinking. I cannot explain my odd head-on-foot Sculpey clay figure in a short paragraph, but that too […]

cultural divide

In responding to my daughter who felt our Montana reunion last summer was a disaster, I found I could not share most of my thoughts. They would be quite unhelpful. Her San Francisco family of three along with an Idaho mother in-law and her brother’s Utah family of eight rented a vacation lodge. While there were some frictions there, they increased when that group combined with the Bitterroot elders, and further while visiting the homesteading family of six. I realized in the 1990s I did not fit the California culture, and, significantly, that I could somewhere else. Shopping online I found a more appropriate community, moving to Idaho late winter 2000-2001. A dozen years later I snuggled into an even […]
