So, Not watched.

waving-american-flag-graphics-4-1Listen here.


I am a libertarian conservative.  I believe, myself, in traditional America.  That, may be long gone.   Really, it is.  Sorry friends.

I have many memories growing up in the 70’s.  It was wonderful.  And what I expected.  Those times are gone.  I can talk politics about those times.  Those times are not now.

These days.  These days when children do not get to learn of our greatness.  Of how important our Constitution is. That remains.  Not learned.

That Constitution, Its a partnership between the living, and the dead.  So there.  None of this is taught today.  Its a pact between good.  And bad.  If I say this, well, these days,  I dunno.  I’m a dullard.

So.  OK.

Listen.  Pledge your honor.

I know why.  I know why our forefathers were sacked, killed, or died.  They did.  They were men of means.  Not hungry men.  Not fanatical incendiaries.  They had all to loose.

Not my words.  I see why some seek to take us, as they say, into circles.

But we, sadly, are coming up on that time.  A time of challenge.  Once again.  I hope all of you can stand fast.  Stand fast for common sense.  Storms are a quality of life.  That. That is the answer.

Think about it.  Come home with a black eye.  But stand for it.  Think about your Honor.  Claim it.

The LCD will not get it.

Plan for bad times.  Help your fellow man.  To an extent.

Be involved in your local government.  Not only is it fascinating, but if you believe in God, country and self, well, there you go.

We will get what we deserve.

That, is the sum of it Americans,

July 4. Independence.

waving-american-flag-graphics-4-1Today, we celebrate the 4th of July.  With fireworks, parades, picnics, and festivals.  My favorite among holidays.

A holiday, where public offices are closed, we take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life, to remember.  Well, most of the informed among us at least.  (The dolts on the video on this link are, ahh… .  really dumb.  That’s being exceedingly polite).

I have a grill, potato salad, brats, burgers and plans for our local fireworks.

They surely celebrated on this day, in 1776, yes?


Just some bells, pealing out in Philadelphia.  The actual Declaration was not signed by all its signators until later…. .   But what we celebrate this day, other than that declaration, is what happened after.  And the great sacrifice of countless others since.   Beginning right with our founders…. .



Can we please Pledge our Honor?

harvey_ozy_1_wide-74a44f52a997e1836f70a177d8ca24046c66fcc2-s800-c85I’ve struggled to write on Harvey before, perhaps because he was before my time.  Not really, but I remember him, and his “rest of the story.”  He was very apropos, perhaps.   For today:

Paul Harvey, old-school conservative radio pioneer.  Harvey,

“personalized the radio news with his right-wing opinions, but laced them with his own trademarks: a hypnotic timbre, extended pauses for effect, heart-warming tales of average Americans and folksy observations that evoked the heartland, family values and the old-fashioned plain talk one heard around the dinner table on Sunday.”

“‘Hello, Americans,’ he barked. ‘This is Paul Harvey! Stand byyy for Newwws!'”

“He railed against welfare cheats and defended the death penalty. He worried about the national debt, big government, bureaucrats who lacked common sense, permissive parents, leftist radicals and America succumbing to moral decay. He championed rugged individualism, love of God and country, and the fundamental decency of ordinary people.”


Now, he gives a great overview on what happened to our forefathers here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLnrD037lIKZAKYsSa6EBpC2AnT4QdRKz7&v=3In5LZwG9Io

Watch it.  And then remember.  Watch it again.  Burn Boston.  Though it makes a begger.  We may lose our sons.  God save us all.  Our founding founders lost all.  For us.  More on Harvey;

Used to hear him often before his death in 2009, most often while sitting for a haircut at the barbershop, or in the car.  But I always remembered him for “…now you know the rest, of the story.”  The fate of our forefathers, those that signed that pledge.  Oh Boy.  I digress.   I guess.

But he carried a message, one that resonates today:  Be true to your self, family, and to your country.  Call out cheaters.  Be honest, at all cost.  And be real.  We need all of that today in our leaders, but they are lacking.  Harvey did not set out to be an icon, he just was.  An example for us all.

Interesting, in 1965 he delivered this:


If I were the devil … If I were the Prince of Darkness, I’d want to engulf the whole world in darkness. And I’d have a third of it’s real estate, and four-fifths of its population, but I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree — Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first — I’d begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: ‘Do as you please.’

Relevant to today.

He did say, tomorrow always has to be better than today.  I agree.
