They Hate Us…

…for our Alaskan Salmon!!! Roberts climbs out of his truck and slams the door. He is a square-jawed man with a slow, deliberate way of talking. He looks out at Nushagak Bay, which remains frozen until the end of April. No boat can enter or leave the harbor until the ice breaks up. He shakes…

Why I am Optimistic…

I began awakening about the same time as Szechuan Death. It was difficult at first. I had to do a lot of research and then I had to learn to discard most of the education I had gained in the prior 30 years or so. It didn’t fit. It could not be made to model…

Our Marxist Government…

…no, not Karl…The Marx Brothers… Bill Bonner explains… We had a lot of fun with the “End of History” concept. It is so arrogant…so imbecilic…so preposterous, we chuckled every time we said the words. But, it helped explain why the options market had gone dead and why Americans are ready to go so deep into…

Striking a Chord…

WorldNetDaily has published an anonymous hit piece on “V for Vendetta”. It appears that the movie hit closer to home than I had thought. Reality is sometimes a tough thing to look at, face to face. The fact that this “review” is at the top of WND’s Sunday edition is very telling… According to the…

V…

The Eides of March…

I look at the hillside, opposite our house, and wonder at the majik of nature. The hillside is bathed in a brown/gold mix as it climbs into new green and old/green. I love the mix of colours. The natural contrast and the natural mix. The trees have not yet leafed out, yet there is green…

Creeping Socialism and Creepy Conservatives…

It is impossible to tell liberals from conservatives, democrats from republicans, leftists from rightists, anymore. You just can’t do it. The definitions and actions of the groups and individuals, who continue to cling to those titles are too mixed to determine true principles. The Libertarians (big L) have now joined this game and no longer…

And Yet More on…The Freest Country In the World…

Claire Wolfe reports… THE OTHER SHOE DROPS ON NATIONAL ID. The pilot program for this abomination was sneaked in as land-mine legislation in 1996. It’s only been a matter of time. In a free country no one has to ask permission of the central government to earn a living. Or bank. Or travel. Or invest.…

More on…The Freest Country in the World…

It turns out that John Silveira has pondered this paradox… Have you? Here’s a quiz: Which is the freest country on earth? The answer’s easy. It’s the United States. Ask anyone. And why are we the freest? Not because we’re the richest. Long before we became the world’s richest nation we still regarded ourselves as…

The Freest Country in the World…

From Sara Messenger… I’m so glad that I live in the US of A It’s the freest country in the world Where there’s plenty of work You just can’t live on the pay Yeah, it’s the freest country in the world But this earth was once held In indigenous hands Before the first flag was…
