Reflections from the Golden Years

CLOWARD, PIVEN AND THE NEW PARTY

Wake up America You thought you elected a president from the Democrat Party, but what you actually got was a president who sprung from New Party. Never heard of it? That is not surprising since many of the major media seem to subscribe to the same tenets that drove Richard Cloward and key founder of […]


Of Mice and Men-The Latest Skirmish in the Fed’s Battle Against Ranchers

From the ridiculous to the ridiculous (there is no sublime). DON’T FENCE US OUT: The Lucero family (from left to right, Orlando, Mike and Manuel) say the U.S. Forest Service is going overboard with a proposed 8-foot-high fence in the Santa Fe National Forest. You won’t believe the reason–it is to save a mouse. Government […]


DECONSTRUCTING AND DEMORALIZING OUR MILITARY

The problems with the VA are nothing more than the canary-in-the-mine that reflects the administration’s contempt for the warriors that stand between us and those that would take our freedom by force. The military has also been a major bulwark against those who would take our freedom surreptitiously. Look what happened in Egypt when the […]


THE LAND GRABBING FEDS ARE AT IT AGAIN

I’m taking a little time from moving to cover the government’s continuing push to grab all private property. If they don’t succeed in getting your fee simple rights, they will render your rights virtually useless to you. The following is from Doug Giles’ Clash Daily: where you can see the video. THEY’RE COMING AFTER YOUR […]


MORE RANGE WARS

POLITICAN CHAMELEONS AND THE PARTIES THEY DAMAGE

Former Republican governor of Florida, Charlie Crist switched to Independent and now he has switched to the Democrat Party, ΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞ Crist was not merely a Rhino, he was an opportunist, hitching his wagon to the party he perceived as having the greatest chances of winning. When all your attention is focused on political ambition, how […]


FROM UTOPIA TO NIRVANA

The mission statement of progressives is to create Utopia, a world in which progressive intelligentsia make all the decisions for those they consider to be intellectually beneath them. Progressives work tirelessly to make people believe that only when conservatives (which encompasses any hints of Christian/Judeo religions) are stamped out, can their desired state of Nirvana […]


REAPING THE WHIRLWIND

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” -Galatians 6:7 No truer words have ever been spoken; it is clear you can’t plant wheat and harvest oats. You can’t plant squash and harvest water-melons. So what on this earth made voters think they could dip into […]


WASHINGTON ROBIN HOOD, THE BOY SCOUTS AND THE WIDOW

As we continue our series on property and government-mandated wealth redistribution, we see examples of confiscation pop up at an ever-increasing rate–and these are only the ones at the forefront of the news. They are appearing so fast and furious, it is difficult to keep up with them. Several major commentators on conservative radio and […]


Give It Up, Sucker – You Did Not Build That

If you speak real estate, as I have done for almost a half-century, the meanings of the justifications for federal land grabs are crystal clear–and as bogus as the day is long. The  federal government has long taken land from people like you and me before turning around and rewarding big political supporters with the […]
