Voting Hasn’t Worked, So Now What?

“Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one’s government is not necessarily to secure one’s freedom.” ~ Friedrich August von Hayek, economist, philosopher

votingIf you can believe the statistics, 65,918,507 Democrats voted for Barack Obama and 60,934,407 Republicans voted for Mitt Romney in the 2012 general election. A little over 2,000,000 voted for third party candidates, bringing the total votes to 129,235,558. This represents only 53.6% of the total voting age population of 240,926,957. So roughly, a little over one half of the voting age population found it important enough to cast their vote for president of the United States. 111.6 million didn’t.

But these statistics don’t even begin to tell the real story, why did the people vote in the first place? Below are a few of the reasons why people vote, especially for a male president. Continue reading

Indians, Wolves, Grizzlies and Other Endangered Species Insanities

indian_woman_01In the early settlement days of the Pacific Northwest, the new inhabitants to a wild land encountered dangerous predators that were killing their livestock, domestic animals and sometimes people. Yes, wolves, bears and cougars were indigenous to the area. But as the human population grew, deadly run-ins with these animals occurred more frequent. It was said that in the pioneer days of Seattle, the people could not walk the streets at night for fear of being attacked by bears and cougars that would roam into town in search of food. In order to remove the threat, thankfully these predators were essentially hunted to extinction.

But radical environmentalists and the Indians, still clinging to a long-dead culture, are lobbying Congress to re-enter these dangerous animals into the North Cascades of Washington State. They have already re-entered wolves and grizzlies into the northern Rocky Mountain States and wolves into Northeastern Washington State. Once more, man is confronted with dangerous predators that kills their livestock and poses a considerable risk to their domestic animals and themselves. This has led to the unwritten law of “Shoot, Shovel and Shut up.” One Idaho rancher didn’t heed the law and was forced to kill a grizzly because it was coming too close to his penned livestock and his young children. Thinking he was doing the right thing he called the authorities to come remove the carcass. The authorities quickly arrested him for killing an endangered species. Continue reading

Ewart: Could The IRS Become America’s Gestapo?

“Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions.” ~ James Madison

the-mountain-road-movie-poster-1960-1020216141The other night we were watching the 1960-war movie “The Mountain Road” with James Stewart. It took place in China during World War II when the Japanese were advancing throughout the mainland of China. It was Stewart’s job to lead a small group of demolition experts to blow up an airport the U. S. was abandoning and then blow up bridges, ammunition dumps and sections of the mountain road to blunt the Japanese advancement. This would allow thousands of refugees to escape into the mountains and give time for the Chinese to build opposition forces.

During the trek over the mountains, Stewart and his men encountered tens of thousands of desperate, starving and fleeing Chinese refugees. They also encountered Chinese Army deserters who were hungry and dangerous. In a moment of compassion one of Stewart’s men took some cans of fruit to a crowd of refugees who then promptly trampled him to death to get to the food. Continue reading

The Drake Equation and the Fraud of Climate Modeling

climate modelingOh no, not another global warming article? Yep! It’s true, but this one takes a little different tack to make a point about the folly of climate modeling. Hopefully, the reader will forgive this author’s brief foray into the world of simple mathematics and logic.

Back in the early 60’s when scientists started “dreaming” of how they could determine if there was life elsewhere in the universe, a radio astronomer by the name of Frank Drake came up with an equation (the infamous Drake Equation) to estimate the possibility of intelligent life on other extra solar planets in the Milky Way galaxy. He came up with the equation to help stimulate scientific dialogue at the up coming, first ever, Search For Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) conference in Green Bank, West Virginia.

The Keystone Pipeline, Eminent Domain and Government Duplicity

keystoneThere is a great deal of confusion, mis-information, propaganda and outright lies flooding the Internet and the airways about the Keystone XL pipeline. Most people aren’t aware that three phases of the pipeline are already built and operating. It is the fourth phase that is creating all of the hot air and acrid smoke among the competing parties and the mostly uninformed public. There are many competing parties, most at odds with each other. Continue reading

The Government, the Devil and the Cone of Uncertainty

“As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.” ~ Albert Einstein

devil_06If you were watching the endless reports last week on hurricane Arthur as it moved up the East Coast of the United States, perhaps some of you noticed that there was an updated hurricane report every 6 hours. Maybe even some of you noticed that the track of the hurricane predictions on the weather maps gets wider and wider as it moves forward in time. In just 4 days the cone of uncertainty is over 500 miles wide, from a point four days earlier that was only a few miles wide. This is true for the predictions of all hurricanes and weather systems. It is also true for a whole bunch of other life experiences and natural events. Continue reading

Ewart: Just How Are You ‘Gonna’ Unravel This Banana Republic?

Unravel thisJust about every day we get an e-mail or a phone call from some property owner who is at his or her wits end over falling afoul of some rule, regulation, law, or ordinance. They have exhausted their administrative and legal remedies, sold many of their possessions to fund the fight, or borrowed heavily against their assets and they are out of cash, out of energy and out of hope. In many cases, they face the loss of their property as well and left penniless on the street. Why? Too many laws! Continue reading

The Impending Disaster from the Hordes of Illegal Aliens

overwhelmedWe wrote the following article in June of 2008, 6 years ago. It is even more relevant today with our southern border unraveling into pure chaos. Can you think of anything more insane than highly trained border patrol agents babysitting little children by the tens of thousands while drug smugglers and human traffickers cross over the border unimpeded? And blaming brutal conditions in other countries as the reason to allow these children to enter America with no means of support is equally insane. With that philosophy we should take them all in, millions and millions of them. Continue reading

Freedom Is a Fading Mirage on a Darkening Horizon

mirageWe have a little experiment we would like you to try outside. First, wet your finger and put it up in the air. Then turn your body around until you feel the wind evaporate the moisture on your finger. Now, open your mouth and blow into the on-coming wind. Did you feel the wind change direction from the immense power of your breath? Oh, you say the wind direction didn’t change at all and your breath had no affect on the wind? That’s the reality of one-man power. It takes at least the breath of a million one-man powers to change the direction of the political wind. Continue reading

A Feisty Veteran Refuses to be Bullied by the Border Patrol

border patrolThe abuse of federal power literally grows by the day. Incidents of the heavy-hand of federal agents on private citizens litter the pages of local newspapers but very seldom hit the mainstream media. We see these stories because they come across our e-mail almost daily. A few of these events become emblazoned across the TV screen of those networks that choose to portray overt government power. One such event occurred at the Bundy ranch in Nevada where the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) employed over 200 heavily-armed SWAT team agents to accost the Bundies over alleged illegal grazing of the Bundy’s cattle on federal land. Two more similar events are occurring in Texas and New Mexico. Continue reading

Let Us Reach Into Your Heart and Light The Fire of Freedom

“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of the government. The history of government is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is the history of the limitation of government, not the increase of it.” ~ President Woodrow Wilson

statue-of-liberty-crying315We wonder if Americans have lost their will to fight a battle, right a wrong, or defend their freedom and liberty? We allow hordes of illegal aliens to invade our country every day and say we can’t do anything about it because we must be compassionate, we must grant them amnesty, but without acknowledging the dire consequences that that misplaced compassion will inflict upon us. We allow our government to slap chains on our wrists and ankles with a million regulations, without so much as a whimper. We allow socialism and radical environmentalism to tear down the very foundation of our freedom while we look the other way. We allow our children to be indoctrinated and brainwashed with the new social order and environmental extremism and say we don’t have the time to get involved. The Germans didn’t want to get involved either. We have allowed special-interest groups to replace the consent of the governed, even though our in-action leads to our enslavement. We have allowed a fourth branch of government to grow into a cancer, to the point that it answers to no one, in the rising stench of out-of-control bureaucracies like the IRS. Continue reading

Ewart: America – Dictatorship by Bureaucracy

“It doesn’t always take guns and chains to enslave people. It just takes a zillion unconstitutional laws and a bureaucracy to enforce them, to which the people blindly comply without resistance.” ~ Ron Ewart

ron ewartGovernment, at least in what is left of the Constitutional Republic of America, is (or was) about preserving, protecting and defending the individual, God-given rights of the people. Government is (or was) also about service, service to the people for functions that only government can accomplish. In America, the people established the government and the government was and is supposed to be the servant for the people. But alas, it is a fact, the servant has become the master without a shot being fired.

Government has sent hither swarms of officers and bureaucrats to pass millions of unconstitutional laws and eat out our substance. The ironic part is, these bureaucrats that harass the people were the creation of past and current Congresses and presidents, in direct violation of their solemn oaths to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution and the rights of the people.

Ewart: Social Security is Not A Contract, Insurance, Or A Right

“Social Security will go bankrupt within ten years!” ~ Congressman Paul Ryan

social_securityLadies and gentlemen, have you noticed that your social security checks are now called a benefit? Did the hair on the back of your neck go up when you saw it? Were you instantly angry because you thought Social Security was a contract with government, old-age insurance and a “right”? It was sold that way. Think again!

The U. S. Government in 1937 in the case Helvering v. Davis, 301 U.S. 619 (1937) argued that: Continue reading

Ewart: The Face Behind The Growing Anger In America

“To the last, I grapple with thee; From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee; For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.” ~ Herman Melville, ‘Moby Dick’

Moby DickAs anger grows by leaps and bounds in America over the direction we as a nation are heading, it is tempting, if not wholly natural, to focus that anger on a thing or a person. Most of government, local, state, or federal, is a faceless beast displaying a total disdain for the people and it is difficult to direct anger at the shadowy images that hide behind the dark curtain of government deceit and corruption, even though we know they are there. The fact is, we can’t reach them because these shadowy figures are protected by that curtain. It would be like trying to grab a handful of flies floating in a mirage. Continue reading

Ewart: The IRS Came, They Saw and They Conquered

“We’ll try to cooperate fully with the IRS, because, as citizens, we feel a strong patriotic duty not to go to jail.” ~ Dave Berry, humor columnist and author

irs-agentMany of you are aware of our almost four-year long battle with the IRS. Some of you may have fought them for much longer and unfortunately, most of you will lose or have already lost. The statistics of prevailing over the IRS in court runs about 2% of all cases. The IRS is, was and mostly likely always will be, an inflexible, faceless, insatiable, bureaucratic beast that knows no law other than its own. Even those that created it, the U. S. Congress, seem to have no power to stop it or rein it in, or purposely refuse to stop it because they like having it there to keep the masses in fear and in line. (See: “Why Congress Will Never Repeal The IRS“)

(NOTE: We are continuing our fight with the IRS and have just filed a charge of grand theft against them for stealing 15% of our social security income for an illegal penalty assessment. Next we will file a “color of law” complaint with the FBI, against the IRS. Following that may come a lawsuit. These new documents will eventually be posted to our IRS information website page HERE.

“The more people who are dependent on government handouts, the more votes the left (Progressives) can depend on for an ever-expanding welfare state.” ~ Thomas Sowell, conservative columnist, author

The Planned Liberal-Driven (Progressive) Destruction of American Capitalism and Freedom

promisesTo read the story of the Roman Republic turned Empire, is to read the general history of mankind in a kaleidoscope of greed, ambition and the lust for power, wealth and political influence at the expense of the masses. All of Roman history was well known to the Founding Fathers and they were determined to set up a system of government containing several checks and balances to preclude the repeat of the sordid Roman tragedy. Within the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution, the framers thought they had found that delicate balance between self-government and the weaknesses and avarice of man.

How To Beat Government Without Hiring A Lawyer!

“There has to be some limit to what lawyers can take from their clients. Otherwise, cagey attorneys end up with the lion’s share of the settlement and the victims end up with little more than scraps.” ~ Dennis Hastert, Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives.

ron ewartThere are two kinds of people in America, those that have never had to hire an attorney and those that have been bilked by one. We have had our own experiences with attorneys, one who tried to blackmail us over the telephone and another one who sucked us dry to the tune of $35,000 on a 100% frivolous lawsuit where we had to mortgage our home to pay him.

We have heard many other horror stories from individuals that find themselves in a corrupt court system, being taken to the cleaners by their attorney, defending against some government notice of violation. At from $250 to over $600 per hour, the average individual’s savings won’t begin to pay for what an attorney can charge in even a small case. It could take a month for the average American to earn what an attorney earns in 10 hours. Nevertheless, millions of Americans are suddenly brought up short and robbed blind when government comes to call and they are forced to enter a system of attorneys, judges and court clerks that rule the roost with a thousand rules that no one else knows except attorneys, judges and court clerks.  Continue reading

Mr. President, You Are a Consummate Liar


obamaliarAmerican: “Mr. President, I am most grateful that you have granted the opportunity for just a normal American like me, the chance to ask you some questions that linger in the minds of millions of Americans relevant to your first five years as our president. My first question is, how do you and Mrs. Obama feel about occupying the People’s House?”

Obama: “I’m glad to do the interview Mr. American and I’ll keep my answers brief and to the point. Mrs. Obama and I have taken full advantage of the perks offered by this office and this grand home and we have enjoyed the use of Air Force One and Two for our vacations and all the pomp, circumstance and glamour that comes with being President. But regards to this interview with you Mr. American, let me tell you of an interview I had with Bill O’Reilly. I thought I did a real good job in that interview in presenting the facts as I see them, in responding to Mr. O’Reilly’s somewhat impertinent, irrelevant questions. Bill kept interrupting me, but I kept my cool and …..”  Continue reading

Ewart: Putting a Face on Radical Environmentalism

“Humans have the innate propensity to take a moment in time and attempt to preserve that moment as a sacred moment for all time and do so using propaganda, myths, distortions and lies, or by forcing public policy and lobbying for new laws. Such is the state of environmentalists and environmentalism today. They think in terms of short spans of time, as in a generation, or a century. They fail to realize that time is dynamic, ever-changing and ever-evolving over tens of thousands and millions of years. In the process, certain species survive by adapting and new species erupt to fill the changing environment, including humans. Every day species go extinct as eco-systems change in response to natural forces ….. or human forces. That is the story of non-linear dynamic systems on planet Earth. Neither the Earth nor time, stand still. Man can’t freeze time. Man can only temporarily alter it for short periods. What environmentalists also fail to realize is the disastrous affects their policies and laws have on real Americans who must suffer the consequences of environmentalists and government trying to “freeze” time with draconian, unconstitutional environmental laws.”Ron Ewart

farmers auctionLife on Earth offers many, what are called non-linear dynamic systems. Eco-systems, oceans, the weather, the stock market, commerce and trade, currency exchange, welfare and the poor and the behavior of people, are just a few examples. They are characterized by having many different variables that determine their instantaneous conditions. Each can be altered dramatically with small changes in one or more variables. Government, by far, is the worst perpetrator of messing with non-linear dynamic systems that end up having disastrous unintended consequences. These unintended consequences are abundantly apparent by observing the Obama Care disaster and the irreversible damage it is doing to the American health care system. Radical environmental law is doing the same thing to constitutional safeguards on property rights. Continue reading

ENVIRONMENTALISM – Building Block of Global Government

NOTE: The following article requires no disclaimer nor apology from the author, as other sites seem to require. (Ed.)

ron ewartStraw man: …. is a common type of argument and is an informal fallacy based on the misrepresentation of the original topic of argument. To be successful, a straw man argument requires that the audience be ignorant or uninformed of the original argument. (Source)

One of the easiest ways to control or manipulate the average individual is to create a straw man argument and then convince that individual with strained logic, or all kinds of scientific mumbo-jumbo, that the argument is true. The uninformed individual will buy the argument because he has insufficient knowledge to refute it. The next easiest way to control or manipulate the average individual is to make them feel guilty about their actions and how those actions impact the straw man (fallacy) argument. Since the average individual is not very well informed, straw man arguments are very effective.

Use of the straw man argument to control the population of an entire planet is not that difficult. Those wishing to control the planet, for whatever reason, (usually power and money) first invent the straw man, then they create the guilt attached to the straw man. The first invented straw man was the earth’s environment and how man is impacting the environment by his alleged damaging behavior, thus creating “GUILT.” The second invented straw man was Social Justice and how the wealthy nations and individuals should feel guilty about all the poor people in the world and the absolute obligation of the wealthy to share (by force) their alleged “ill-gotten” wealth with the poor ….. more “GUILT.” Continue reading

A Nuclear Submarine Captain and The President

Power, without honor or trust, is tyranny.” – Ron Ewart, national author and speaker

submarineFOREBAR: Ladies and gentlemen. We have received some complaints recently that we are being too tough, strident and caustic in our articles. We submit that we aren’t being tough enough. The fact is, if we are not stirring your blood, we aren’t doing our job. If Americans are so timid and afraid of government that they don’t want to hear the truth and from that truth, challenge the government, at any level, then America has absolutely no chance of saving itself ….. from itself. Fear paralyzes and renders the fearful impotent. Fear is the worst enslaver of all. If you fear the government, local, state, or federal, then we strongly suggest you don’t read our articles. From our perspective the government, at all levels, has become arrogant, abusive and tyrannical and is fair game, especially to those of us with courage, a free mind and an indomitable spirit.

EWART: America Needs To Be Shaken, Not Stirred

“Great nations are simply the operating fronts of behind-the-scenes, vastly ambitious individuals who have become so effectively powerful because of their ability to remain invisible while operating behind the national scenery.” – R. Buckminster Fuller, American architect, author, designer and inventor

“Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.” – Victor Hugo, 19th Century French Poet and Novelist

bond_martiniWhenever we come up with a title for an article, we always Google it to make sure it doesn’t get too many hits. If it does, we won’t use it. When we Googled the title for this article, only one hit came up. It was an article by Tom Hayden on the Huffington Post website, written just after the 2008 Iowa caucuses. The subject of the article was so germane to this one, we could not help but highlight it here as a historical perspective of where we were in 2008 and where we are today after 5 years of the royal reign of self-appointed King, Barack Hussein Obama. The gist of the article was a letter from Tom Hayden’s son Troy to his dad about the 2008 Iowa primary and how the young people of America were so positively and emotionally inspired by Obama’s run for the White House. We wonder what Troy would say now? Continue reading

Ewart: Sheep Never Stalk The Tiger

“The only way to win the battle over the minds of an ideology is to turn the friends of your enemies, against them. Although the task is great, the reward is victory.” ~ Ron Ewart

tiger sheepIn all of our wars and all of the difficulties we have faced as a nation in over two centuries, if we would let a little thing like a socialist president and some hopelessly misguided Democrats get in the way of where we wanted to go, America would have never gotten where it is. If there was a wall, we went over it, around it, under it ….. or through it. If there was a lock in our way, we “picked it” or blew it up. If there was a frontier, we explored it. If there was a beachhead, we took it. If there was a foreign or domestic tyrant, we pulled his teeth and rendered him impotent. If there was a bridge to be built, we built it. If we wanted to go into space, into space we went. Literally nothing stood in the way of Americans, when they wanted to create something, build something, stop a dictator, or get to a place where they wanted to go. We were unstoppable and contrary to popular opinion, we still are. Hell no we are not perfect, but our accomplishments as a nation, a culture and as a people, are the envy of the world.

Does Government Have Statute Authority To Enforce Law?

“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

Obamas LawFrom our foray into the Land of Oz and the false wizard known as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), we have learned a great deal about the complexity of the law and how it is supposed to work. The ugly truth is, the law has become so cumbersome and complex that it is bordering on collapsing under its own weight. Millions of local, state and federal laws have been written and placed on the books and all that law is so riddled with conflicts, contradictions, overlaps and unconstitutional provisions that it is amazing that we haven’t become a nation of the lawless. What keeps it sort of working is the institutionalized corruption of politicians, lawyers, judges and the courts. Each of these players is a co-conspirator in that corruption but that fact is probably the best kept secret of the last 10 or 20 centuries. This corruption literally grows by the day.

You Are An Involuntary Servant To Almighty Government

us-constitution13th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution (Dec. 18, 1865)

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Title 22, USC, Section 7102 (Definitions) INVOLUNTARY SERVITUDE

The term “involuntary servitude” includes a condition of servitude induced by means of—
(A) any scheme, plan, or pattern intended to cause a person to believe that, if the person did not enter into or continue in such condition, that person or another person would suffer serious harm or physical restraint; or
(B) the abuse or threatened abuse of the legal process.

First, we wish to acknowledge and to thank our readers for their donations and outpouring of responses to our last article and the voluminous pieces of information and horror stories they provided on and about the IRS. The tens of thousands, if not millions of American citizens that have been damaged, tormented, abused, intimidated, harassed and jailed by the IRS is not only tragic, it is a massive injustice and a wholesale assault on freedom itself. From all appearances and from what we have read, these injustices were created by a never-ending stream of slight-of-hand and illegal acts by the Congress, the Department of the Treasury and IRS bureaucrats ever since the 16th Amendment was supposedly ratified in 1913. These illegal acts by government leads us into our next area of discussion, involuntary servitude to government by the people. Continue reading

Ewart: The IRS Chronicles

PART I. Why Congress Will Never Repeal The IRS

IRS repeal“In June, 1988 Kay Council of High Point, NC came home one night to find a note from her husband, Alex: ‘My dearest Kay – I have taken my life in order to provide capital for you. The IRS and its liens, which have been taken against our property illegally by a runaway agency of our government, have dried up all sources of credit for us. So I have made the only decision I can. It’s purely a business decision… You will find my body on the lot on the north side of the house.’ At the end of a nine-year battle over a disallowed tax shelter, the IRS claimed that the Councils owed $300,000 in taxes, interest, and penalties. When their financial resources were exhausted, Mr. Council committed suicide to provide Mrs. Council with $250,000 insurance money to continue the battle. Ironically, Mrs. Council eventually won a court ruling that she and her husband owed the IRS nothing – the IRS deficiency notice had been sent four months after the statute of limitations had expired. Mrs. Council, 48, said, ‘I was cheated of growing old with the man I love.'” Excerpt from an article by Randy Fitzgerald, staff writer at Readers Digest, republished in the March 1991 Issue of Reason Magazine. Full Story was republished by Devvy Kidd in 2003 at this link: .

The above story is just one of tens of thousands, if not millions, of Americans who have fallen afoul of the arrogant, abusive and corrupt Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Each American that is forced to confront the IRS, must do so all alone with very little if any assistance from anyone else. Most Americans live in abject fear of the IRS and don’t have the resources or knowledge of the law to fight this out-of-control mega-monster that shows no mercy and knows no law other than the law it invents to suit its purposes. But how did we get here? Continue reading

And The Devil Said To Obama …..

“He’s really sort of the devil. He’s completely emotionally detached. He has no empathy. You find that in psychopaths. It’s about power with Voldemort. (Lighting Bolt). It’s an aphrodisiac for him. Power makes him feel alive.” Ralph Flennes, English Shakespearian Actor

satans_sonOh, how the mighty have fallen! The once-proud dragon slayers of the North American Continent, the righteous defenders of freedom who walked with head held high in a land of liberty, are now the prisoners of the dragon and are being beguiled by the false promises of a camouflaged devil, in the hopes of eternal salvation here on earth. But the dragon speaks with a forked tongue. This dragon has uttered lofty words of hope, change, dreams, and of being lifted up by the omnipotent power of the Messianic One. He will wave his magic wand and relieve you of your suffering and wants. He will provide you with jobs, free health care and he will bring peace to the world at last.

Is America In the Grip of Cowardice?

“There are those that recognize a wrong and act to right it. There are those who “see” the wrong, but do nothing. But unfortunately there are way too many of those who don’t “see” anything at all.” ~ Ron Ewart

fearIf you were standing on the railroad tracks and you saw a train bearing down on you at high speed, what would you do? If your child was playing next to a cliff and you saw him chasing a ball towards the cliff, what would you do? If burglaries and thefts were rising in your neighborhood, what would you do? If bullies and thugs took over your town, what would you do? If a man confronted you on the street and demanded your money, what would you do? In most cases you would act swiftly to get out of the way, save your child, take action to stop the neighborhood crime, confront the bully and resist the robber from stealing your money ….. or would you?

What if your neighbor came over one day and said, I need more of your property and I am moving my fence twenty feet onto yours and I’m not going to pay you a dime, what would you do? If your boss said that he has established a new policy of welfare and has decided to take a percentage of YOUR paycheck (not his) and give it to the poor, what would you do? If you were part of an organization that existed on private donations and the board members decided that they were going to use fear, intimidation, threats, lies and propaganda to increase donations, what would you do? If you were a deacon of a church and you discovered that the other deacons were using parishioner money for their own use, or grossly wasting that money, what would you do? If the local school board decided that they were going to include in the curriculum for your children, a course on Earth’s salvation that required teaching the kids that their parent’s lifestyle was environmental heresy and should be condemned, what would you do?

Wrapped In The Chains of Obama Care

ron ewart“As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.” ~ H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun; July 26, 1920

“And so it was written in the distant past and so the predictions for the future have been finally realized, at the hands of an ever-growing weak, apathetic and distracted electorate.” ~ Ron Ewart

And so it came to pass in the year of our Lord 2010, King Obama decreed that all the people are entitled to Health Care as a fundamental right. The Democrat-controlled Senate, in its all-wise and infinite wisdom and using some parliamentary tricks, agreed with King Obama and passed this fundamental right into the law of the land. Those nasty and obstructionists Republicans cried foul and would not sign onto the law. The press, academia and those Americans beholden to King Obama’s legacy and promises, vilified the Republicans and the Republicans were sore afraid. But King Obama quickly signed the bill into law and sealed the document with his royal ring, before the people had a chance to learn what was in it. Continue reading

Ewart: The Great Sucking Siphon of America’s Wealth!

“It is an inescapable fact that there will always be the rich among us and there will always be the poor among us. Sometimes the rich will make a wrong decision, lose their wealth and join the poor. Sometimes the poor will break the bonds of poverty and join the ranks of the rich. It is the natural order. When government tries to even the playing field by passing laws, they muck it up every time and their meddling usually hurts the poor and the middle class, but never the rich. In the process, their entitlement programs allegedly designed to even the playing field, become the great sucking siphon of America’s Wealth.” – Ron Ewart

the-debt-ceiling-debacle-is-only-the-beginning-of-a-major-fiscal-crisis.jpgThe other night, not being able to find anything worthy to watch on what has become a mostly useless and debase entertainment venue, we turned the TV to the history channel and watched a documentary on America’s aging infrastructure. In the two-hour long program, they touched on every form of infrastructure, from roads, bridges and rail corridors, to water and sewer systems and dams, to oil and gas pipelines, to generation facilities and the electrical power grid, to river and lake levies and to our our sea and fresh water ports.

Many of these systems were built well over 50 years ago and some over 100 years ago. But like all systems, they begin to fail over time from the ravages of weather, rust and corrosion, electrolysis, earth movements, growing loads beyond capacity and inattention by those in charge. Water pipes burst daily all over America, releasing billions of gallons of domestic water onto streets and into houses and businesses. Bridges fail costing millions in replacement and lost lives, like the 2007 collapse of the I-35W Bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the 2013 collapse of the Skagit River bridge in Mount Vernon in Washington State.
