If you participate in this armed protest you are not a patriot, not a hero and not a martyr. You are a traitor to all of those who have worked, sacrificed and struggled to bring the restoration of all of our rights to the front of their agenda, for the benefit of you, your family, and generations to follow.

What breaks my heart is when children graduate with diplomas in political correctness but can’t read them without help.
For the past Five Years I made a point to spend some time with a group of what I consider “average” teenagers at a local high school. These are middle class students, in what is supposed to be one of the better schools in the area. I am appalled by their lack of knowledge of things they will need when they hit the real world.
Here is what I found in my little unscientific survey of 100 (50 Boys & 50 Girls) randomly chosen students, in grades 10-12. Continue reading
In this writer’s opinion, some form of ‘flat’ tax system is not only common sense, but efficient, workable and fair. If you make Ten times the money, you pay ten times the tax, period.
Add to this a National Sales/Consumption tax, and a mechanism by which the poorest American’s would pay neither, and 20,000 pages of confusing tax code can be whittled down to a Hundred or so easy to understand pages. Continue reading
Only Two simple questions that I believe every candidate for office should answer before any others.
These answers will help determine whether their candidacy deserves further serious consideration.
Once we have your commitment that you do not place yourself above the people you govern, we can move on to other issues such as immigration, education, security and the economy. Continue reading
We, the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt-ridden, delusional and other liberal, commie, pinko bedwetters.

Wake Up Democrats!
I’m far less worried about what happened to the Lincoln and Reagan Republicans than I am about where the Kennedy Democrats went. Where are the Democrats who cared more about the good of the nation than the purses and power of their party.
Help Them J.F.K. – They’ve Fallen and Can’t Get Up! Continue reading
The silence of the “peaceful” Muslim community may not necessarily mean that they approve of, or are not disturbed by the death and violence perpetrated in the name of Allah. They may be afraid to speak. Their silence, however, still speaks volumes. Curiosity about the ongoing and escalating violence, perpetrated by Radical Militant Muslims (aka Islamic Extremists) gave me reason to get in touch … Continue reading
As a child I only remember a few things that were classified as ‘absolutely forbidden’ to touch, get close to, or even vaguely think about. Aside from the obvious; buttons, levers and stuff in the car, truck or on power tools, daddy’s guns, and the oil furnace, there was a special category — grandma’s paring knife. Long after I was old enough to shoot … Continue reading
In addition to showing everyday inmate activities like Ping-Pong and Chess, Percy Crosby’s artwork depicted hospital staff as screaming monsters and the administrator as a skulking man who controlled the locks and keys.
Crosby was committed under suspicious circumstances, allegedly because of a suicide attempt, but later thought by his daughter to be a failed attempt at murder. This is understandable since Crosby allegedly stabbed himself, but the police did not find a knife at the scene.
He was never released.
The circumstances of his “life imprisonment” were made all the more suspicious by the circumstances and events that followed. Continue reading
Scenario: No More Drug Problem.
For the sake of this hypothetical commentary, let’s assume that somehow, the problem with illegal drugs mostly goes away.
Whether this is through enforcement, social change, legalization or some yet to be discovered process is not relevant for this commentary. Continue reading

According to The Book of Lists, fear of public speaking ranks number one in the minds of a majority of people. Far above the fear of death and disease, comes fear of standing in front of a crowd.
We all want to be movie stars, but are terrified of the spotlight.
Here are a few anecdotes and tips to help your turn in the barrel as productive as possible. Continue reading
It’s not the 100 million who can’t read who bother me — it’s the 200 million who can’t write!
Flawless grammar and perfect punctuation are rarely seen or expected in today’s environment of Instant Messaging, Tweets, Text Messaging and other popular, social media.
My Mother taught me at an early age: “Proper grammar and enunciation are like a secret handshake. They open the door to an exclusive club full of opportunities. What you do once it is opened is up to you.” (Ida Eggleston) Continue reading

NOTE: The Eggman had to write this for me because, as I say later, I have no brain, no muscles and no ability to reason or think. I’m neither good nor evil — Like most other tools, I’m a simple inanimate object.
I’m as much a part of Joe’s daily outfit as shoes or socks. In fact, Joe goes without his socks more often than he goes without me. Continue reading
I’m sure most people have seen them all. From the well-meaning but bumblingly stupid Barney Fifes, to the arrogant, power hungry cop wannabes with anger issues.
The ‘survival’ brain is conditioned to recognize and remember extremes and aberrations from the normal, so these stereotypes linger in most everyone’s mind. But like cops, security staff are people too. And just like cops, the ones who stand out represent the exception, not the rule. Continue reading
Most everyone should be familiar with the biblical story of little David, who, against all odds, defeated the giant Goliath in a heroic battle. Well I’d like to give this story a bit of a modern spin. Goliath, was a somewhat dimwitted victim of Gigantism (9 feet tall) Victims of this disease often experience double vision and/or difficulty with side (peripheral) vision and physical … Continue reading
Percy Crosby was clearly not popular with the White power establishment of the Twenties and Thirties. His characters and cartoons, however, were wildly popular with the American people.
Crosby’s outspoken, politically incorrect but accurate and insightful satire and personal activism eventually led to his being labeled by the government and big business as a dangerous person. Continue reading

Why Skippy® Still Hates Peanut Butter The Mammoth Unilever Corporation is resisting all legal efforts to stop its arrogant, unauthorized use of the SKIPPYTM name, made famous by Skippy’s creator Percy Crosby. Until such time as justice is delivered, Unilever will remain in SKIPPY’S Hall of Shame for corrupt and fraudulent marketing. The adage, “there’s no honor among thieves,” appears to apply to … Continue reading
… and why do they want to kill us? No, Percy Crosby wasn’t exactly murdered, but he may as well have been. Sudden death may have been more humane than slow death after Sixteen Years of unlawful, and nearly solitary confinement. Crosby, a longtime thorn in the side of corruption everywhere, was locked away in a State Hospital, without evidence of any … Continue reading
When I first stumbled upon the story of the fascinating life and tragic death of artist Percy L. Crosby, I heard tales of intrigue, corporate greed, corrupt, mob-connected politicians and even death threats against those who dig too deeply into this bone-yard. I could not fault anyone who first thinks of conspiracy theories and tin-foil hats. I was of the same mindset until I … Continue reading
