NOTE: I am resurrecting the following column from June 17, 202. It needs to be read and re-read as often as you can stand it – so that you GET IT! ~ Ed.
“We’re All In This Together,” the sappy title of one of several bad songs, has become the Ministry of Information slogan of the pandemic. You hear it while shopping for groceries at the supermarket, see it on billboards that tell you to social distance your way off the street, and in every single ad on TV.
And then, after months of being locked indoors and that we were out to kill grandma if we left the house, the same media lauded massive numbers of rioters crowding together to curse the cops.
The political fiction of the pandemic died once its administrators found a shiny new fascist object… Continue reading
~ Foreword ~
Too few Americans today appreciate, love and long for true individual liberty, in the manner I would expect from honorable men and women. They have discarded or simply forgotten the American heritage of freedom that had its inception at the start of our War for Independence, or it simply may just be that some are bred to the concept of liberty, like a racehorse is bred to run, while others are missing that oh-so-important gene.
Sixty years ago, the Silent Majority could probably view this situation we have today and readily see an end game. It was easy to connect ending the Vietnam War with ending anti-war protests, which meant voting for Nixon in ’68. They could see the nation’s social mores decline with the growth of the hippy anything-goes population. And in the same light, they knew that if law and order politicians ordered the streets cleared of hippies and protesting “students”, like the Students for a Democratic Society, those anti-American bastards, it would be done.

Back in 2014, hundreds if not thousands of conservatives and liberty movement activists converged on a farm in rural Clark County, Nevada. The purpose was to protest the incursion of federal government agents onto the property of the Bundy family, who had defied pressure from the Bureau of Land Management to stop allowing their cattle to feed on “federal land” in a form of free ranging. It was a practice that had been going on for decades and one that was required for the Bundy farm to survive, ended abruptly by environmental laws protecting a tortoise. Continue reading
Every conservative who compromised on tearing down confederate statues is complicit in the destruction of art across the country.
There is no need to name names. The so-called conservatives who have been coddling mindless calls to destroy public art know who they are. So do the rest of us. These are the reasonable conservatives, the good ones, so ever careful not to be called racist. They had a compromise in mind because they always do. Throw the Confederate statues under the bus and we can save the rest. Well… Continue reading
I have been waiting for this! As retired nurse, I know better than to fall for so many scams the media is promoting right now. I’m stuck in my home still because my only fear is getting my son in trouble by being the one who causes the violent protest to break out in Sarasota, FL when some innocent worker attempts to point a temp ray gun at my head. JK, but I have learn to be cool & not go off on someone for it before I can walk among the zombies again. Working on it… ~ Linda Chapman, Retired Nurse
THIS… is a Life that matters!
“Woke” white people, I’d like to ask you a favor:
Please stop asking for forgiveness for your “white privilege.”
You’re not fooling anybody. You’re not helping black people—or any other minority. And your public confessions don’t make you look virtuous. They make you look disingenuous, which is a really nice way of saying fake, phony, and fraudulent.
For starters, what is “white privilege” anyway? Because you were born with white skin, you have all these advantages that I don’t have?
Like, you can get a mortgage loan that I can’t get? Continue reading
Well… the sharp sense of humor of someone else – who gets it!
In America’s War for Independence the Colonial Army and the Redcoats would form long lines, march to within 50 yards of each other, and then open fire; staring right into the eyes of their enemies… Continue reading
This has been a sad weekend for me… and now Libby. RIP beautiful Lady. ~ JB
Two-time Academy Award-winning actress, Dame Olivia de Havilland has died peacefully from natural causes on July 26 at her residence in Paris, France. She was 104. Continue reading
I have just been notified that the following is true. RIP Brother… I’ll be along soon enough. Sundown approaches. ~ JB
Hello Everyone, It’s me, Mary, Lloyd’s wife…
With my sad, heavy, and deeply broken heart Jesus suddenly came and reclaimed our Lloyd Marcus, The Unhyphenated American. Continue reading
“We are facing the greatest assault on our civil liberties in our lifetimes. The virus is real, but the government reaction is political and totalitarian. As it falls apart, will more Americans start fighting for their liberty?” ~ Dr. Ron Paul, former U.S. Congressman [Texas]
A mandate to wear masks may seem like a simple matter and a “minor inconvenience” to some or many. But I don’t think those who take this position have really considered all its implications and the long-range ramifications and consequences that might accompany the meek and compliant acquiescence to even a “temporary” mask mandate. Continue reading
…meet some folks who are doing it in their part of the Country.
I just returned from a meeting with Mayor Ketron that was arranged by Andy Olsen, and it was also quite telling. Essentially, Ketron has passed the buck to Gov Bill Lee, explaining that the Gov. had asked all the state’s mayors to support this mandate, in a meeting they held on Monday. So, he’s going along with this until August 3rd, in light of “the increase in Covid cases” in Rutherford County. He also mentioned that he personally had a good friend that was just placed on a ventilator.
I explained to him that the increase was only in “positive results” from an increase in testing and not actual confirmed cases of Covid. Further, I made note that masks are proven not to be effective in stopping the infected from passing the virus or preventing the uninfected from catching it. Continue reading
The phrase “the Fall of America” suggests some cataclysmic event ended the American Empire which had stretched from Maine to California and Florida to Washington. But at the end, there was no straining at the gates, no barbarian horde that dispatched the Empire in one fell swoop. Rather, the Empire fell slowly, as a result of challenges from within and without, and changing over the course of hundreds of years until its form was unrecognizable. ~ a take on the words of author, Edward Gibbon.
The doctrine of being non-judgmental and the inability to differentiate has created a society where we can no longer tell the difference between right and wrong or good and evil. Phrases like “social justice, inclusivity, intersectionality,” and “the right side of history” are designed to virtue signal one is most sensitive, less prejudiced, more compassion, righteous, and forward-thinking, but offer no consideration that there is much more to morality than catchphrases. Continue reading
Wealth inequality has become a major talking point for those primarily on the Left who are vehemently against capitalism. Often espoused by leftist professors, lawmakers, and think tanks, the increasing disparity in wealth among Americans has been a growing concern. Many have questioned for years whether the Federal Reserve and their fiat currency monetary system is a fundamental fraud in our economy today. Is the Federal Reserve causing wealth inequality, thereby sowing the seeds of Marxism? Continue reading
