…and the way it was!
I grew up in a little town about 25 miles north of Chicago called Northbrook, Ilinois at a time when everyone treated each other with respect. We didn’t eat a lot of fast food. We drank Kool-aid, ate lunch meat sandwiches, PB&J sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches, hot dogs, but mostly home made meal such as meatloaf, fried chicken, roast beef & pork chops, black eye peas, snap peas…
We grew up during a time when we would gather glass bottles to take to the store and use the deposit money to buy penny candy. (We even got a brown paper bag to put the candy in). You sure could get a lot for 25 cents. We went outside to play games, rode bikes, jumped rope and raced against sibling played hide and seek, Red Rover, Red light green light, mother may I, kick the can and yes the games got more daring as we grew…There was no bottled water, no microwave or cable tv, no cell phones, no hair straighteners… Continue reading
the Short Take of it all
We are all heated. We are all angry – many of us for the same reasons – many for even other reasons. The entire political system in this country from the top down is rotten. The pussies, the snowflakes and the spoiled brats are angry – but they aren’t even sure why, so they get paid to go out and raise hell and protest, but when asked “why” – most don’t even have an answer. Antifa and some of the other spoiled groups are getting paid under the table by – maybe Soros, maybe someone else. And then that worthless lying Porch Monkey comes out of his hiding place (from the bath house?) and is stirring up even more anger and confusion. It is going to get real ugly real soon. We must all find common ground among us, and stop wasting our time with the small stuff. It gets us nowhere.
I’ll see you at Sundown…

April 21, 2009 – You spend your entire adult life living life the right way. You buy a car on ‘time’, you pay your debt. You get retail store credit cards, such as JC Penney, Sears, Best Buy, etc you pay your bills on time or before they are due.
You purchase your first home in 1972, another in the Spring of ’76, sell it and buy another in the Fall of the same year. In ’79 your daughter is born, you pay the bill to the hospital because you have no insurance and you buy another house, and then another in ’80 and ’85, move to the Valley of the Scum in ’90 and buy another house, and another in 2003, sell it in 21 months and make a killing, and buy another in 2005.

“It is the study of history that teaches us to hope.” ~ Robert Edward Lee
This equestrian statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee was removed from downtown Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
It is Monday night (Labor Day 2018) and the first time I have been away from the home/office since Friday night. Much has been accomplished relating to website updates and the continued merging of several aspects of the ultimate goal, but some things have happened that I have become aware of – other events which I have been following.
Let me provide you with some background for the purpose of this post…
This first part of our story began on July 11th of this year when I had finally reached the end of my rope with all of the hatred and anger in this nation, so much of which has been stirred up by the so-called ‘media.’ I had made a decision to begin shutting down many of my efforts – efforts which I had launched seven weeks before 9/11. Continue reading

On July 22, 2001 I began publishing the Federal Observer, a daily, on-line magazine. This daily journal shared editorial columns by many known and as yet unknown writers, each of whom covered issues such as economics, legal, religion (or more appropriately – spiritual issues), conspiracies, Militia, gun-rights, education, environmental, legislative issues and many others. Three days after 9/11, our publication co-wrote and hosted a petition to once again re-arm the pilots on our commercial airlines. Our petition drew millions of participants from all over the nation – both from within and outside of the airline industry. Whether we liked it or not, we were on the map. Continue reading
…for YOUR Children!
They are rampaging across the South to begin with the tearing down of the artful memorial statues of America’s history. It matters not to me exactly where you stand regarding the of Northern Aggression – or whatever you choose to call it. I reside in Arizona, and there was exactly one battle between opposing sides – but our one single small memorial to that event was removed several years ago (by theft). Now it’s Chapel Hill, NC and that damned Socialist University. Continue reading
The Purge is 100% complete – HOWEVER…
August 21, 2018 ~ You’ll note that we have been republishing a number of archival columns from Granny, Neal Ross, Ed Lewis, Ron Ewart, Alan Caruba, J.D. Longstreet, Sandra J. Miller, Aaron Cantor, Larry Miller (not the car guy), Dotty Seese, Louis Turner, Mark Dwyer, Justin Smith and others. These are among the writers whose selected columns will remain with the forthcoming project. In addition – for those who are still with us in body – some of their upcoming projects will be included as well. Continue reading
August 21, 2018 ~ What happened at UNC Chapel Hill last night is sickening. This memorial stands in memory of the 1,800 UNC students that were called to service by their State, many of whom lost their lives never returned home to their families. UNC is noteworthy for providing more students to the war than any other university in America. The front of the monument actually depicts a student dropping his textbooks while looking up to a woman symbolizing North Carolina calling him to duty. Continue reading
