Why I Won’t Fix Your Computer

Computer Crazy

I may gladly recommend an anti-virus or a free office suite. I’ll show you how to make Window’s 8 look like Windows 7, how to format a drive, burn a CD, deal with ZIP files and maybe even hook up your wireless.

The only way I will touch your computer, however, is to wipe it clean, reinstall and update your operating system and drivers, and I’ll hesitate to do that.
Don’t lie about things like “I didn’t do anything, it just suddenly started …,” and “No, I never download software.” We are all human, and screw up on occasion. This is complicated stuff, and it’s not instinctive nor intuitive, I do not judge, because I have probably been there.

A De-evolution of Leadership

de-evolution

Leaders lead, tyrants rule and servants serve. When did we lose sight of the distinction?

It starts when they do things for your own good — and ends when you are no longer relevant.

It’s not the Democrats and it’s not the Republicans. It’s what our government has become as a whole.

Drug Testing for High Level Officials.

syringe

Why Shouldn’t High Level Public Servants Prove They are Drug Free? As a condition of employment, almost everyone, from the guys who pick up the trash and deliver the mail, to the folks who read meters and repair the highways must agree to random drug and Alcohol testing. A number of my jobs, and consulting contracts required a full drug screening and an agreement to random testing. Why don’t “We The People,” the employers of every person in government, require the same of those with whom we entrust our lives, liberties and our very existence as … Continue reading

Who Us Is, and Why We Are In Danger!

Coexist

Imagine a sordid scene with a bubbling cauldron. Swimming in that boiling orgy of hate and animosity you see …

Republicans, Libertarians, Tea partiers, Occupy Wall Streeters, Christians, Jews, Women, illegal iImmigrants, Buddhists, the extreme Right, far Left, the unemployed, Wiccans, Scientologists, flat-Earthers, Bill Maher, The NRA, Al Sharpton, Rush Limbaugh, ACLU, Native Americans, athiests and the entire LGBT community.

But here they are all working together, peacefully, in cooperation for a common cause. WTF?

Help Them J.F.K. – They’ve Fallen and Can’t Get Up!

“Ask not what your Country can do for you, ask what you can do for your Country.”

Hmmph, sounds like one o’ them damn right wingers ta me.

JFK inspired an entire generation of children, such as myself, to endeavor to be all that they can be, and to use their pride in being an American to reach for goals and dreams that others deemed impossible.

“Ask not what your Country can do for you, ask what you can do for your Country.”

A disturbing number of today’s ‘gimmie’ generation behave precisely the opposite.

So Who’s Stupid?

Whenever you find yourself in a time of low self-esteem, start thinking that you are fat, ugly or otherwise deformed, take a trip to Wal-Mart and look around.

I guarantee that you will immediately begin to feel better about yourself.

But what do you do when you begin to doubt your intellect?

Think Twice Before You Throw Scripture at a Homosexual

egg_alcove-bible

Simply put, the letter points out a logical flaw in the “homosexuality is wrong because the Bible says so” argument: if homosexuality is wrong because it goes against God’s law as outlined in the Bible, why aren’t any number of activities now viewed as innocuous but once regarded as unacceptable also offenses against God’s law?
How can one part of Leviticus be deemed as etched in stone when other parts have been discarded as archaic?

The Folly of Ballistic Fingerprinting and Microstamping

The Folly of Ballistic Fingerprinting

A number of States require Ballistic Fingerprinting or Micro-stamping of all new firearms while others are exploring these options.
In theory, when a cartridge casing or bullet is found at a crime scene, this database would be used to locate the gun’s purchaser, and thereby, the perpetrator of the crime.
Like most unworkable ideas, this one sounds logical and practical on the surface, but is based on false assumptions, emotions and “wishful science”. (If it sounds right it must be right.)
In practice, for a number of reasons explained below, ballistic fingerprinting of cartridge casings does not, will not and cannot work.

There Are No Gun Rights!

newsabusters

When we replace gun rights with gun-owner rights the issue becomes personal.

Join the effort to end the futile battle for so-called, non-existent gun rights and gun laws.

Renew the charge in support of the very real and very important rights of The People who own defensive and recreational firearms.
