silver lining

We gave A LOT to the next two generations in our family. They did to our offerings what they have done to every opportunity in their lives … threw it in the garbage. After recovering from the kick in the teeth, we find ourselves choosing between our manufactured home in a gorgeous trailer park location on the Bitterroot River and ten acres with a full-sized, full-basement home, south-facing slope, year-round creek and many forward-thinking neighbors. No contest. The first week after their abrupt, rude, inconsiderate departure was the black cloud. The month of August was cleaning up a mess left by typical tenants. (I still never want to be a landlord … and particularly as I am reminded of what […]

Charlottesville CAR-VS-PROTESTERS show

I really want you to have read about the Charlottesville rally and protest violence first. It could and should be The Big Story. It is even likely that the car-into-crowd SHOW was made and played to distract from that Big Event. Here is a decent article on the big picture, what the series of protest/counter-protest violent confrontations are about. It is useful to understand why this is dominating mainstream media and political discourse at this time. Welcome to Charlottesville – proof that political correctness is wrecking America by Robert Bridge What we should study up on is the ‘car plows into crowd’ show that is the centerpiece of lamestream media Charlottesville coverage. I have watched dozens of videos and tried […]

stick with your own kind

Locally it is a rare person who discriminates on basis of religion, skin pigmentation, private interactions or any of the popular subcategories of humans. We recognize the Divide and Conquer game from history, literature and times we have witnessed it personally. We aren’t falling for it. But we do see nationally that a huge chunk of the population is being sucked into it. It will be ugly, but the war between the gullibles will probably not arrive in our region. What has hit me personally in the last month is a generational difference. My generation’s version of honor, integrity, generosity, repayment is not the same as those born after the government began designing automobiles. Okay, I’m a car guy. In […]

party of peace

  In response to the escalation of threats of warfare by the Donald Trump administration, the Libertarian National Committee adopted the following resolution at its quarterly meeting last weekend: “Resolved, the Libertarian National Committee calls for the immediate U.S. government withdrawal from NATO.” President Trump’s foreign policy seems to depend on which advisor he talked to last … or whatever his Twitter muse may be in the early morning hours. Clearly, the last people he listened to before addressing the nation on Afghanistan last Monday night were his generals. He raised the specter of terrorism to justify killing Taliban, Al Qaida, and ISIS terrorists, saying that he would give the military a free hand. He vowed to maximize economic sanctions, […]

cause of The Civil War

Lamestream media informed people are attacking, or supporting the attacks on Confederate history. I am saddened by their historical ignorance, but not surprised. The federal takeover of government indoctrination, sometimes called “public schools” had this among its chief objectives. I just ran across a wonderful summary of the “Civil War” causes. Certainly the books When In The Course Of Human Events, The Real Lincoln, Lincoln Unmasked and others of their kind are better than this synopsis, but the facts are consistent. The modern, popular mythology does not hold water. I quote from the article: Shortly after Lincoln’s call to put down the “rebellion;” a prominent Northern politician wrote to Colonel Baldwin to enquire what Union men in Virginia would do […]

Charlottesville protest violence

Pretty safe to assume that lamestream media is part of the show. Their track record of relaying the truth is remarkably poor. Their glitz, ubiquitousness, production quality and FCC protection from competition, are the grips they have on their shrinking audience. But it is a big show. Repercussions, ripples and echoes are going on and on. What happened there? I am posting this today in two parts. I want you to read this one first. I have spent parts of several days assembling it. Videos and clips I remember seeing were hard to track back down, I am pretty dang busy in my physical world right now, and I got bogged down in the complexities of debunking the official narratives […]

50 years and it still doesn’t add up

Figuring Out The Kennedy Assassination By Jacob G. Hornberger The Future of Freedom Foundation   The official story of the Kennedy assassination is that he was killed by a former U.S. Marine, lone-nut, communist assassin named Lee Harvey Oswald. The big problem, however, is that the official story has never comported with much of the circumstantial evidence in the case nor with common sense, reason, and logic. That’s why no one has ever been able to come up with a credible motive for Oswald to kill Kennedy. As I pointed out in Part 1, by the time he was assassinated Kennedy was ending the Cold War against the communist world and had announced his intention for America to live in […]

cabin for sale

Conner Cabin from the bridgeWe spent over four years making this perfect for the two of us, but it is a bit snug with my Mom here too. We are moving to more appropriate housing and leaving our lovely riverside home behind. Major remodeling along with addition of the adjacent lot to our lease transformed this river-front home into a real find. I apologize for this, but i tracked down the problem with photos not displaying properly at this site to a change in the publishing software. I must change the way I handle graphics to accommodate that, but I am busy making our new home habitable for us. Meanwhile, you can view this article WITH photos at the link […]
