Tree of Liberty

As I write this, my neighbors are having a large oak tree cut down. Well, it’s probably an oak, but maybe it’s a maple, I don’t think it’s a walnut. Frankly, I haven’t really paid that much attention. Full Disclosure: I failed “Tree ID” in school. Regardless of the tree’s flavor, I quite liked it.… Read More Tree of Liberty

Obama Cares?

I know there’s a lot of chatter about ObamaCare, but I’ve not really been paying that much attention.

I suppose everything doesn’t have to be about running for President, but who… Read More Cruzin’ into 2016

During the last election, 33% of Americans showed up at the polls. This is a lot, isn’t it? We get in a panic when we hear that one in three Americans is overweight or that one in three black males will go to prison. I’ll admit, the Australian stats look better – 9 of 10… Read More EZ Vote
