As a paying customer I would truly appreciate it if your collective staff would remove their collective heads from their collective asses and inform me as to why (wordpress) is once again denying me the capacity to publish my post?

Compliments of my good friend David in Florida.

As for my personal life? Or more correctly, my life as a cash cow for the medical and pharmaceutical industries, “they’re” doing much better than I am. Albeit, being the cantankerous old “son of a gun” that I am, I’m still hanging in there.

Americans and Guns..

Americans and guns 1

Question: Why do Americans own guns?

A gun for Christmas

The simple answer; “because we can.”


The U.S. Constitution was fully ratified in 1789, thus allowing every U.S. citizen the right to keep and bear arms as scribed in the Second Amendment.


The quintessential reason why Americans own guns.

independence 1

independence 2a

Please take time to read this and pay particular attention to the following “Gun History,” from history around the world.

God-fearing, law-abiding, country loving people don’t carry a gun to kill people; they carry guns to keep from being killed.

We carry guns because the World isn’t always a safe place where decent God-fearing, country loving men and women can raise a family in peace and prosper.

Americans don’t own guns and sponsor the greatest military on the planet because we’re paranoid; ..we “own” guns and sponsor the greatest military on the planet because there are clear and present dangers in the World.

Isis beheading 21

Decent God-fearing American men and women don’t carry guns because we’re evil, we carry guns to detour and defeat evil.

protecting yourself 1

The American people don’t own guns because we fear the government, the American people own guns to support the government because we understand the limitations of our policing agencies and our government.

I don’t own a gun because I’m afraid, I own a gun because it’s one of the inalienable rights guaranteed me by the U.S. Constitution and I enjoy hunting and sport shooting.

Our government and police protection are wonderful entities, unfortunately our government and our police officers are not always readily available when they are needed.

A circumstance that our founding fathers fully understood as they penned the Second Amendment…

Second Amendment - graphic 2a  (2)

Reality from the past…

Please don’t think for a moment that these atrocities couldn’t happen in 21st Century America; … 

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control: …

From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control: …

From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Germany established gun control in 1938: …

murdered in Germany 1a

From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935: …

murdered in China 1a

From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964: …

From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Uganda established gun control in 1970: …

From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Cambodia established gun control in 1956: …

From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. 56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of government gun control.

America is the only nation remaining on the planet where a citizen can keep and bear arms to defend themselves, their families and the nation.

American gun family

..and you won’t learn of this information on any U.S. evening news, or hear any politicians disseminating these facts.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and yes, national gun-control laws, unfortunately unfavorably affect only law-abiding citizens.

gun-control poster 1

With guns, we are ‘citizens’; without guns, we are ‘subjects’.

During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti- gun control message to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.

The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.





I’m a firm believer in and active supporter of America’s 2nd Amendment! If you’re an American that believes as I do, that America is the greatest nation on the planet.

Then support America and our freedoms as intended by our founding fathers, don’t fall in with an “ideology” that wants to take away you’re freedoms.

Americans with guns founded this nation and Americans with guns have defended it for nearly 340 years.

Accordingly, if you’re an American citizen that enjoys his or her constitutional freedoms, please support the ideology that built this nation, …

Obama gun confiscation 2

..not an ideology that wants to destroy it.

Although I’m unable to pinpoint the time and date, I do have nebulous memories of squishing ants and spiders as a child.

Question: Have you ever picked a flower?

Life abounds and we abound with it, as we (Homo sapiens) , and/or, (human beings) are life and in our nature, life judges life, (without exception), everyone and everything “in nature” chooses who shall live and who shall not…

Question: Did God give man the right to choose?

absolutely - Wizard 2

God gave man free will.

According to Webster: “free will,” n. The ability or discretion to choose; free choice.

Question: Does mankind’s free will justify mankind’s injustice to mankind?

you're on your own 2

I provide commentary, opinion and some times advice, albeit when my heads on straight, (I choose) not to make decisions for others.

I am a creation of God, one of his oddest and most versatile,

I enjoy serenity, while at the same time I have the capacity to kill, both for sustenance and for security.

John Candy mudwrestling 1a

Unlike Dewey Oxbuger, i.e. (John Candy), in the 1981 Ivan Reitman film “Stripes,” I am not a lean… mean… fighting… machine!

Albeit I am a hunter and as a hunter I have harvested deer, turkey’s, rabbits, squirrels, quail, pheasants and numerous other game animals and birds for my table.

Homo sapiens, and/or, human beings are and have always been hunters, it’s in our nature for survival.

The school nurse sends your son or daughter home from school with a note announcing that he or she has head lice with instructions on how to get rid of the little buggers.

you kill them 2

As a Homo sapien, and/or, (human being) that has taken life, both for sustenance and for preservation and for the security of my flag, mom and apple pie, i.e., America, it is my opinion as an American that America and Americans have a duty to protect ourselves and to protect our “allies” around the world from harm. Whether it’s harm from physical violence or from an opposing ideology, as a Christian and as an American, it cannot be allowed to stand.

Hate I can live with..

sick dog 2

As you are aware if you’re one of the folks that read my post regularly, I am currently experiencing a bit of difficulty.

Albeit with that said; (in truth) I am not experiencing anything that many before me have experienced. I again spent a good portion of my day Wednesday lying immobile in an emergency room hooked to monitors, greeting “doctors and nurses” that devote themselves to those of us that run into circumstances beyond our control.

Circumstances that I hate, because I personally have yet to meet anyone that enjoys being incapacitated.

It was a long day and I knew it would be when I agreed with my wife and my brother to “error on the side of caution” as I experienced some numbness in my right arm.

And yes, I am aware that heart attacks generally present on the left side, and/or the left arm. However since I am aware that I currently have an undetermined number of small blood clots coursing throughout my interior, I believe it (not wise) to make the call myself.

During my 4 ½ hours of uncertainty, there was a lot of time to ponder, not just about myself, but others as well.

One of my concerns somewhere during my second hour on my gurney was the terrifying screams and crying from a child I would guess to be four or five from his lung capacity.

Unaware of his circumstances, I can only suppose as to the reason he was occupying one of the rooms adjacent to mine.

Although I wasn’t unconcerned about my circumstances, the young man’s terrified voice lent immeasurable perspective to the moment, at seventy-three, (especially for the male gender in my family), an expectation of anything to do with longevity is a pipe dream. 🙂


According to Webster: “pipe dream,” n. A fantastic notion or vain hope.


Keeping it real and doing what I do, no one can read what is in another man’s heart, albeit we can all read and individuals actions.

What greater tribute could there be to a nation’s fairness and freedom than to elect an individual fanatically opposed to the foundation of the nation that provided him the opportunity to nurture the tree, or chop it down.

Barack Obama has no love for, or “allegiance” to America or to “our” Constitution, his thoughts for America are subversive and his actions have been catastrophic.

Barack Obama, in my opinion (in the simplest terms), is an (idealistic) Marxist communist who “understands nothing” about love of country and the value of patriotism.

America is not a child’s toy purchased with another’s coin, it’s a proud nation with a proud history of men and women that sacrificed their all to create a nation where “character” trumps presentation and production trumps consumption.

We are not our brothers keepers, we are our brothers allies and his support in a time of need, we are Americans and an American, a “true American” has no need of any further title.

To declare that an individual, (any individual) is deserving for nothing more than the fact that he or she was born is a gross misuse of semantics. Life is indeed a gift, albeit it “does not” come without a cost and an obligation.

According to Webster: “ob·li·ga·tion,” (in context) n. The act of binding oneself by a social, legal, or moral tie.

Americans since America’s inception have always rallied to take care of one another, Americans do not need a wetnurse government to micromanage our daily lives.

We are and have always been a proud independent people, a true American has no need to reach out to their heritage for an identity.

A true American is proud to be an American, I am proud to be an American, I don’t need a prefix.

I’ve had a good life and I’m proud to report that I have never willfully dismissed the laws of God or man, except maybe for the short time that I owned a GTO.

Barack Obama and his liberal ilk are unequivocally intent on trading America’s inalienable rights for an ideology that has never provided for anyone other than the elite.

In America “the people” don’t simply have the power, “the people” are the power.

Moneylenders have always been a necessary evil, which is why our founding fathers specifically charged the people with the responsibility through our “representative government” to print and value American currency.

Quotes to ponder…

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. – Thomas Jefferson in the debate over the Re-charter of the Bank Bill (1809)

History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance. -James Madison

If congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations. -Andrew Jackson

The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity. -Abraham Lincoln

Issue of currency should be lodged with the government and be protected from domination by Wall Street. We are opposed to…provisions [which] would place our currency and credit system in private hands. – Theodore Roosevelt

Despite these warnings, Woodrow Wilson signed the 1913 Federal Reserve Act. A few years later he wrote:

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated.

The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. -Woodrow Wilson”


Apologetic words by a guilty man have no value, Wilson could have undone the injury he caused America, but he didn’t.


Years later, reflecting on the major banks’ control in Washington, President Franklin Roosevelt paid this indirect praise to his distant predecessor President Andrew Jackson, who had “killed” the 2nd Bank of the US (an earlier type of the Federal Reserve System). After Jackson’s administration the bankers’ influence was gradually restored and increased, culminating in the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Roosevelt knew this history.

The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson… -Franklin D. Roosevelt

(in a letter to Colonel House, dated November 21, 1933)

“The death of Lincoln was a disaster for Christendom. There was no man in the United States great enough to wear his boots and the bankers went anew to grab the riches. I fear that foreign bankers with their craftiness and tortuous tricks will entirely control the exuberant riches of America and use it to systematically corrupt civilization.” Otto von Bismark (1815-1898), German Chancellor, after the Lincoln assassination

Money plays the largest part in determining the course of history.” Karl Marx writing in the Communist Manifesto (1848).

“Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), founder of the House of Rothschild.

Barack Obama is a devout Marxist communist as well as an individual that categorically sympathizes with Islam, thus if Americans wish to remain governed by the U.S. Constitution, Barack Obama must be the last of his ilk.

From fuzzy world..

Good morning friends, readers and followers of confusion, late but not delinquent, I’m pleased to report that although I am not up to par, I can still put on a pair of socks and if I had hair I’m confident that I could comb it. 🙂

With that said, I ask for your patience as I negotiate the bumps and hurdles that lie ahead. Although I fully understand that this would be a great place for a graphic, I’m going to beg off and owe you one.

I have a doctors appointment this afternoon and several more through the week and weeks ahead, so there is no doubt that my daily schedule will be interrupted, albeit I will do my utmost to keep you updated on my condition and on the condition of the nation.

Thank you and God bless you all.

Love is a Lifetime..

love is a lifetime 1a

Good morning boys and girls, I begin my offering/blather this morning with a “heartfelt” apology to my readers for “up and leaving” last week without a word.

Albeit as I quickly learned to jocularly replied to “Kelley” and the (fantastic staff) on the sixth floor at “Rapid City Regional Hospital” when asked a question for which I had no answer; “I would like to respond, ..but unfortunately, I recently had a stroke. 🙂



A soliloquy that I’m sure Kenny and Bob “both” will enjoy.

According to Webster: “so·lil·o·quy,” A dramatic or literary form of discourse in which a character reveals his or her thoughts when alone or unaware of the presence of other characters.


Although Kelly is definitely the rock on the sixth floor, I owe a genuine heartfelt “thank you” to everyone from Tim to Rose, as well as a heartfelt apology to everyone who cared for me that I unfortunately was unable to learn their names.

My excuse, (not because I had a stroke), but rather because I’ve been a “lifelong loser” when it comes to (remembering) people’s names, with the rare exception of course, of those special individuals who possess a smile that radiates from their entire being.

Thank you for your smile Anna.

Neither last nor least, the doctors that tended to my “fubar” were appreciatively upfront and candid and since reality is my bag, my heartfelt appreciation goes to them as well.

Although expressing my appreciation and my love for those that cared for me in the hospital and for my good friends who rallied to pray for me, Greg, Gabriel and Steve, ..Ed, ..Kenny and Bob and David and Tonya, and my niece Kimberly, and my daughter Chery in California, and my daughter Crystal and Montana and my son Steven who resides on Anderson Island and my readers like Kenny and Bob and aunt Bodie and Ruthie in London and all the rest to numerous for my (fuzzy gray matter) to currently deal with.

I love and appreciate you all.

Again, not last nor least, my wife Linda, who has endured my being for more than 30 years and my brother Clifford who is, (if nothing else) a “pillar of granite” especially when it comes to (being there) for family.

I would love to continue this session, (as those of you who read my blather fully understand; (I love to ratta ratta), albeit as the infamous nemesis of the elderly, and/or, old people, “fatigue” is currently gnawing at my ankles, ..as well as my (fuzzy gray matter), I’m going to put this “old horse” back in the barn until tomorrow.

Thank you all for hanging in there with me and please know that I love you all.
