I never got a paycheck from a poor man….

Why do people demonize the so-called ‘Rich’?  Is it because ‘victim’ status is easier than imitating what the rich man does?  This is something I have never understood, after all anyone that has more money than I do could be thought of as rich.  Personally, I am very thankful for rich people who pay the …

I have so many interests and so much curiosity about such an array of various subjects that it is difficult to actually accomplish anything of value.  When I began writing this blog my primary purpose was I suppose political.  Political, in that I was so fed up with government in general and politicians in particular. …

dog days…..

Our pups spend the day just looking for a cool spot.  They find one in my flower beds, which needless to say aren’t looking very pretty but at least they are serving a good purpose, LOL! As miserable as they are, I find myself envious of the dogs.  Their lives are pretty simple and straight …

Can You Relate? part 2

There is, however, more to the story.  As an American conservative who believes in individual liberty, being betrayed by fellow citizens who have become nothing more than useful idiots of the …

Can You Relate?

The old rancher said, ‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle‘.   You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, and he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, and …
