The Challenger Seven...30 Years Later

Previous generations always had the "where were you when you heard Pearl Harbor was attacked? or "where were you when JFK as assassinated?


Up until September 11, 2001, many people my age thought all we would have as a landmark event was "where were you when the Challenger exploded?"



"the future doesn't belong to the faint-hearted, it belongs to the brave. ...The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and 'slipped the surly bonds of earth' to 'touch the face of God.'"

No one could bring a nation together like Ronald Reagan could.

There are two memories I have of this tragic event, in different times. The first was where I was that day. I was a junior in high school in south Texas, in my US History class when I heard across the hall the teacher I had the previous year in a loud voice responding after someone knocked on her door. A couple of minutes later, she knocked on our door and shared with us the news the Challenger had exploded.

The photo below is a picture of Shuttle Launch Pad 39B, taken in June of 1985 during a family trip to Florida.



My Dad and I went to Cape Canaveral to visit the NASA facilities, which included a tour of the Shuttle launch pads. For this tour, they took us out to an old Apollo launch pad that was being refurbished as a second launch site for the Shuttle. We got out of the bus to quickly take photos in the middle of one of those torrential afternoon thunderstorms that rolls in off the Atlantic. The tour guide told us they would start using this pad for launches in 1986.

The Challenger launch was the first shuttle launch from 39B.

WE SURVIVED!!! Algore's "Earth Will Burn Up In 10 Years" Doomsday Prediction Flops

I remember this from all the time looking at Rush Limbaugh's website, and when he'd played the audio of it, but it was 10 years ago today that former Vice President Algore made an "end-times" prediction.
RUSH: Try this one from yesterday's stack. I don't know if you people know this or not, but Al Gore has been out at the Sundance Film Festival out there in Park City, Utah. This is one of Robert Redford's big do's, and apparently Al Gore is working on a movie that -- what is the name of this movie? Oh, that's right, "An Inconvenient Truth," and the movie will document his efforts to raise alarm on the effects of global warming, and so he brought Tipper and the kids out there.
He's attending parties and posing for pictures with his fans. He's enjoying macaroni and cheese at the Discovery Channel's soiree. He's palling around with Laurie David of Curb Your Enthusiasm, who is the husband of Larry David, who drives the Prius and then flies the GV. Larry David says, "You know, Al is a funny guy, but he's also a very serious guy who believes humans may have only 10 years left to save the planet from turning into a total frying pan."
Now, the last time I heard some liberal talk about "ten years" it was 1988, Ted Danson. We had ten years to save the oceans; we were all going to pay the consequences, which would result in our death. Now Al Gore says we've got ten years. Ten years left to save the planet from a scorching. Okay, we're going to start counting. This is January 27th, 2006. We will begin the count, ladies and gentlemen. This is just... You have to love these people -- from afar, and from a purely observational point of view.
 Well, this morning, the time on Rush's website reads that zero hour is here.



In case many of you were wondering, from my perspective, I could have sure used some of that gloBULL warming this past weekend, after the DC burbs were hit with almost 30 inches of snow from a blizzard on Friday night through all of Saturday. I tweeted the following photo from my top floor apartment to the Chicken Little of the GloBULL Warming movement Sunday morning.



Nevertheless, I'm sure the Algore Travelling Medicine Show will cook up some excuse for why his prediction was wrong, because he's done so previously.

(VIDEO) Attn: Trump Supporters, This is NOT Conservatism!

National Review made headlines and caught a lot of hell from the Trump Kool-Aid drinkers about their issue coming out against Donald Trump as the GOP nominee.

Let me say that while at one time I could have entertained the possibility of voting for Trump if he were the GOP nominee, the scorched earth tactics out of the Left's playbook that he has used against Ted Cruz, as well as the way the Country Club Republicans are willing to side with him in an effort to defeat Cruz, has caused me to reconsider any support for Trump.

Before you go ballistic on me, watch this video and tell me, is this conservatism? I don't think so!

"Viagra Bob" Dole & GOP-e Rally Behind Trump To Defeat...Ted Cruz? And Whose Campaign Is Intimidating Mark Levin?

Just like four years ago, the same GOP establishment scum are coming out of the woodwork to stick the knives in the backs of their own in order to protect their grasp on power.

And, they're willing to get into bed with the candidate they so hated, Donald Trump, in order to destroy not Hillary Clinton, but Ted Cruz. These RINOs would sell their mother's souls to the Satan if it meant keeping or getting more power, money and influence.

Let's name em and shame em. The list is the reliable establishment hacks, like former Senator (and losing 1996 Republican Presidential candidate) Bob Dull (New York Slimes).


Bob Dole, the former Kansas senator and 1996 Republican presidential nominee, has never been fond of Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. But in an interview Wednesday, Mr. Dole said that the party would suffer "cataclysmic" and "wholesale losses" if Mr. Cruz were the nominee, and that Donald J. Trump would fare better.
"I question his allegiance to the party," Mr. Dole said of Mr. Cruz. "I don't know how often you've heard him say the word 'Republican' - not very often." Instead, Mr. Cruz uses the word "conservative," Mr. Dole said, before offering up a different word for Mr. Cruz: "extremist."
"I don't know how he's going to deal with Congress," he said. "Nobody likes him."
But Mr. Dole, 92, said he thought Mr. Trump could "probably work with Congress, because he's, you know, he's got the right personality and he's kind of a deal-maker."
Allegiance to Party? Excuse me, Senator Dole, but shouldn't allegiance to country and the Constitution come before Party? You're just as unpatriotic as every elected Democrat, except that you'll stand by and let them ruin the nation while you make money off of it as a crony lobbyist.

Even worse is North Carolina Senator Richard Burr, who is busy doing damage control because he let the cat out of the bag.
U.S. Sen. Richard Burr on Thursday strongly denied a news report that said he had told people he would vote for Democrat Bernie Sanders over Republican Ted Cruz.
Burr’s aides asked The Associated Press for a retraction. An AP spokesman said the news agency was sticking by its story.
“I will support whoever the GOP nominee is,” Burr tweeted. “@AP is trying to create discord where there isn't discord by telling lies.”
Burr was responding to an AP story by reporter Erica Werner about Cruz’s unpopularity with fellow Republican senators.
The story said, “Cruz has become such a pariah that one of his colleagues, Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, told supporters at a campaign fundraiser … that he would vote for liberal Sen. Bernie Sanders for president before Cruz, according to one person who attended the event.
“Burr did not appear to be joking, said the person, who demanded anonymity to discuss the private gathering,” the article stated.
Add the clown from Mississippi, Trent Lott to the chorus of Vichy Republicans. And then Michelle Malkin at Conservative Review tells us about the incredibly putrid Judas known as Orrin Hatch, joining in the mob to crucify Ted Cruz.
So, Big Government and the Open-Borders Lobby’s best friend, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), took to CNN today to trash GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz:
"I think we'll lose if he's our nominee," said Orrin Hatch, the most senior Republican in the Senate.
"There's a lot of people who don't feel he can appeal to people across the board," Hatch said. "For us to win, we have to appeal the moderates and independents. We can't just act like that only one point of view is the only way to go. That's where Ted is going to have some trouble."
Let me be polite here: Go blow it out your ear, Sen. Hack. Er, Hatch.
 I’ll say it again: Seven-term incumbent Hatch embodies everything that’s wrong with the GOP brand. He’s a mascot for the Big Government Republican parade and masquerade of career politicians who stand for nothing and roll over for everything.
 D.C.’s GOP establishment can’t stand the idea of a conservative presidential candidate who would actually pay more than election-year lip service to conservative principles. That’s why so many entrenched GOP Senators are pulling out all the stops to trash their colleague. Sen. Cruz is a stiff antidote to the Beltway-itis that has metastasized in the GOP halls of power.
Hatch is parroting all the establishment crap spun by people like Karl Rove that you can't alienate so-called "moderates" if you want to win. Well, Orrin, those precious "independents" went for Romney in 2012 and I don't see how that helped any. Maybe you spent too much time while you were in DC being Ted Kennedy's designated driver instead of fighting for conservative principles.

It's not just Ted Cruz who establishment RINOs are attacking, it appears a campaign or someone connected to a campaign is trying to intimidate talk radio host Mark Levin to try and silence him (Red State).
Mark Levin deserves a ton of credit for the work he has done in the last couple of weeks. Although he was initially pretty friendly to Trump, the disgusting liberal Democrat attacks that Trump has started against Ted Cruz have made Levin realize what a snake Trump is, and he has called out Trump accordingly.
Unlike certain other talk radio figures, Levin has always been willing to frankly admit error, and when he does so, his anger can be a sight to behold.
Well, Levin revealed today on air that one of the campaigns has been digging around for dirt on his personal life, trying to shut him up.
Listen to the audio here:

Levin did say he doesn't believe it is Donald Trump's campaign behind the intimidation, but regardless, you start to wonder especially after Trump went Alinsky on Ted Cruz.

But seriously, this is what the GOP has become? A party willing to put liberals in power if it means preventing a conservative getting elected? I thought what happened here in Virginia back in 2013 was bad. It got worse in Mississippi in 2014 when the "good ole boys" used the tools of the Left to defeat Chris McDaniel to defend their tool Thad Cochoran.

Which is why I said, the RINOs are as unpatriotic as liberals.

I Miss The Sarah Palin Who Stood By Conservatives & Against Crony Capitalists

Anyone who knows me or has followed this blog since 2008 knows I have been a vocal defender and advocate of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, standing by her when many who first shouted praises started sniping at her.

It wasn't because of her personality, it was because she stood on principle, and was willing to make tough, courageous stands, even if that meant going against conventional wisdom or the grand poobahs in her own party.

Along the way, it was great to meet her at her first booksigning, hear her speak at several events, even one time (at CPAC 2014) sitting underneath the podium as she paid tribute to Texas Senator Ted Cruz reading "Green Eggs and Ham" on the Senate floor during the Obamacare filibuster.


The Sarah Palin who stood up for real conservatives, who stood up against crony capitalism, who stood up against the GOP when they were wrong. I loved that Sarah Palin.

Today, I miss that Sarah Palin.

Tuesday, Sarah Palin broke the hearts of many conservatives and those in the Tea Party movement who stood by her. Like the cute girl who flirted with you and led you on to believe you meant something to her, she saw the rich, slick bully Donald Dump (Trump), and was wooed by his slickness and wealth, leaving you dumped on the side of the road.

The same Sarah Palin who stood against ethanol subsidies? Her "Biff" boyfriend Donald Dump thinks we should have more of them.

Then there is how Donald Dump has engaged in the worst smears, in the style of the Left, against Ted Cruz, questioning his character and engaging in wacko conspiracy theories. Wow! I remember when "birtherism" was considered racism. Now, the GOP establishment will embrace with it and get in bed with the devil they didn't like (Trump) to stop Ted Cruz, a real conservative.


And you think the Democrats are the only ones who are unpatriotic? There's plenty in the GOP who are. Because they're willing to sell out the country for more power.

I guess Sarah Palin thought she could as well. But, instead, she just ended any chance of ever being President on Tuesday. Ronald Reagan may have made political mistakes along his path, but he never abandoned principles. Sarah Palin abandoned the principles she championed and rallied others behind to jump on the bandwagon of a Cult of Personality, for what? A cabinet post?

You broke our hearts Sarah!

Warning To Preibus, McConnell et al: Sabotage Ted Cruz And I'll NEVER Vote GOP Again...EVER!!!

You can tell how dysfunctional the leadership of the Republican Party has become when they start acting like liberals and willing to make allies with people they once saw as a threat to their power, all to destroy one person.

Donald Trump, aka "Sideshow Bob" of The Simpsons TV show, decided he could not beat Ted Cruz on the issues, so he had to embrace "birtherism" in an attempt to take him down.

The Republican Party, who can't stand the fact that Cruz (like Sarah Palin) doesn't goosestep to the party drumbeat and is willing to call out corruption within the party, has decided to join in with Trump, who they once wanted to destroy, in an effort to destroy whom they really detest, because Cruz has been a threat to their power and cronyism.

Take the lying Mitch McConnell, the yellow-bellied eunuch who fancies himself as Senate Majority Leader (The Hill):
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says the upper chamber won’t issue a resolution on whether Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is constitutionally eligible to run for president.
“I just don’t think the Senate ought to get into the middle of this,” McConnell said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “These guys will all slug it out in Iowa and New Hampshire. We’ll have a nominee hopefully by sometime in the spring.”
But the Senate was willing to pass a resolution on the question of John McCain's birth back in 2008. What's the difference, Mitch? It it because you're still teed off that Ted Cruz called you out on your crap last year? That you're a corrupt, lying sack of garbage?

The blonde anti-Semitic dingbat Ann Coulter took her idiocy to a new level when Liz Mair confronted her about how she had once said Cruz was a national-born citizen, who which the dingy Coulter said "I changed my mind." Of course Ann! You sold yourself to Donald Trump like the cheapest trick on the worst street corner.

Then there is the putrid RNC Chair Rinse Preebus, who is all but throwing Ronald Reagan's 11th Commandment out the window, encouraging these wacko birthers by refusing to get involved.
TIME: A topic in the news today: Ted Cruz was born in Canada. Is he constitutionally eligible to be President?
Priebus: Listen, I don’t get involved. I’m not going to get in the middle of all these candidate issues. It’s a bad place for me to be. I’ll let all these folks argue about this stuff, and I’m going to stay out of it.
Leon H. Wolf at RedState wrote:
This is absolutely inexcusable. I get that Priebus does not want to get in the middle of a discussion over whose tax plan is best, or over whether one candidate is being truthful about another candidate or not. These are all battles that Reince is absolutely right to stay out of.
But there is absolutely no excuse not to say, unequivocally and forcefully, that the guy who is in second place right now in the polls is eligible to take the office if elected. Especially for such an open and shut constitutional case like this.
For all my criticism of him, and how I think he was the worst GOP Presidential candidate in history, I do have to give kudos to Mitt Romney for trying to bring some sanity and sense into this.


Are too many RINOs so blinded by their hatred toward Ted Cruz they are going to embrace wacko conspiracy theories that liberals just a few years ago called "racism" when it applied to their "President"?  If that's the case, then Preebus, McConnell, McCain, FioRINO, Donald Dump and any other GOP-establishment clown who is embracing this are just as unpatriotic as the entire Democrat Party, but in a different way. Democrats embrace America's enemies while RINOs sell out America just so they can profit for themselves from their cronyism. We've been down this road here in Virginia, when we saw how the GOP establishment is willing to help elect a liberal when one of their own doesn't get the nomination.

Which is why I'm giving Rinse Preebus and the RNC fair warning. You sabotage Ted Cruz's chances of being the GOP nominee and the person who can restore America, then I say expletive you! I will NEVER vote for any Republican candidate, EVER!

So Now We Know Obama Lied For Political Purposes In 2008 When He Condemned Fr. Michael Pfleger

Michelle Malkin noted the presence of an old Obama ally from Chicago, Father Michael Pfleger, at the phony town hall on guns held at CNN.
When your citizen “town hall” is invitation-only and jointly co-produced by CNN and the Obama White House, every participant is a potted plant.
As I reminded you in my syndicated column before tonight’s Kabuki town hall on guns, both Obama and CNN have a long history as manufactured-narrative gardeners.
Right on cue, or rather left on cue, one of the chosen people allowed to question Obama was radical, race-baiting nutball Catholic priest Fr. Michael Pfleger from Obama’s Chicago.
She has more about the back ground of Pfleger, who could be considered the Vanilla Ice of race-baiting "preachers", including how he once called America "the greatest sin against God."



Obama pretended to distance himself from his racist "church" as well as Fr. Pfleger back in May 2008 after the following sermon from Obama's church given by Pfleger was made public.


“We must be honest enough to expose white entitlement and supremacy wherever it raises its head…. [W]hen Hillary was crying, and people said that was put on, I really don't believe it was put on. I really believe that she just always thought, ‘This is mine. I'm Bill's [Bill Clinton's]wife. I'm white. And this is mine. I just got to get up and step into the plate.’ And then out of nowhere came, ‘hey, I'm Barack Obama.’ And she said, ‘Oh DAMN, where did you come from!!? I'm white. I'm entitled. There's a black man stealing my show.’” Pfleger then mimicked Mrs. Clinton crying as the audience gave him a standing ovation. Added Pfleger: “She wasn't the only one crying. There was a whole lot of white people cryin’!!!”
Well, here was Obama during a commerical break, all too happy to slap skin with this racist "preacher."


 So I guess we can conclude that Obama's rebuke of Pfleger in 2008 was "just words" and all for political purposes. What else have we come to expect from him but lies and bigger lies?

If Anyone But Hillary Had Done It (Asked Someone To Submit Classified Information Without Markings)...

You would never hear the end of it on the news, and it would blanket the front page of the Washington ComPost, New York Slimes and every other liberal rag.

The Department of (Racial) Justice would be getting an indictment ready.

Remember how Scooter Libby's life was ruined when the Democrat government/media complex needed a head from the Bush Administration to roll over the supposed "outing" of a CIA agent? Libby had nothing to do with it, but the liberal's appetite to bring down the Bush Presidency (aided by the feckless advice of Karl Rove to sit back and take it so to risk not looking political) had to be satisfied.

Here, we find out Friday something happened much worse than anything Libby was alleged to have done (Life Zette).
The latest batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department early Friday contain what may be the smoking gun that forces the Justice Department to charge the former secretary of state with a crime, according to former federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova.
"This is gigantic," said diGenova. "She caused to be removed a classified marking and then had it transmitted in an unencrypted manner. That is a felony. The removal of the classified marking is a federal crime. It is the same thing to order someone to do it as if she had done it herself."
On the June 17, 2011, email chain with senior State Department adviser Jake Sullivan, Clinton apparently asked Sullivan to change the marking on classified information so that it is no longer flagged as classified.
Clinton, using her private email server, asks for "the TPs," apparently a reference to talking points being prepared for her. Sullivan, who is using his official State Department email, responds, "They say they've had issues sending secure fax. They're working on it." Clinton responds, "If they can't, turn into nonpaper w[ith] no identifying heading and send nonsecure."

It's not clear if Sullivan actually followed through on Clinton's orders. But if he did, it may expose Clinton to serious legal jeopardy.
"This makes it impossible for the bureau not to recommend charges," diGenova said of the FBI. "This makes it impossible not to go forward, and it certainly ties the hand of the attorney general."
Some have speculated that while the FBI may recommend charges, Attorney General Loretta Lynch might try to avoid doing so for political reasons.
The revelation also appears to put to the lie Clinton's claim that she never handled classified information on her server.
"I did not send nor receive anything that was classified at the time," she has claimed. By instructing her aide to send her material marked classified, it is clear that she not only may have received classified information, but that it was indeed "classified at the time."

Here's a Fleetwood Mac song Hillary can use as her campaign anthem.
"This means that when she said, 'I never received anything marked classified,' she in fact did," diGenova said.
David Bossie, president of the watchdog group Citizens United, said the email could become the emblem of Hillary's email scandal.
"It proves that Hillary Clinton affirmatively instructed senior staff to send classified data to an unsecured server," he said. "With that, it cements into history, much like the famous Bill Clinton finger wag."
But there's more to this story, and it involves the Clinton's longtime ally and mudslinger Sid Blumenthal e-mailing the Hildebeast in 2011 detailed information about the Sudan (Observer.com).
Remarkably, the report emailed to Hillary by “sbwhoeop,” which was Mr. Blumenthal’s email handle, explains how Sudan’s government devised a clandestine plan, in coordination with two rebel generals, to secure control of oil reserves in the disputed region of Abyei. This is juicy, front-page stuff, straight out of an action movie, about a region of Africa that’s of high interest to the American and many other governments, and the report is astonishingly detailed.
Its information comes from a high-ranking source with direct access to Sudan’s top military and intelligence officials, and Mr. Blumenthal’s write-up repeatedly states the sources – there turn out to be more than one – are well-placed and credible, with excellent access. It’s the usual spytalk boilerplate when you want the reader to understand this is golden information, not just gossip or rumors circulating on the street, what professionals dismiss as “RUMINT.” Needless to add, this is generating a lot of talk in Sudan, where the media is asking about this shady affair – and how Sid Blumenthal, who’s not exactly an old Africa hand, knew all about it.
...But is this an NSA assessment? If so, it would have to be classified at least Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information, a handling caveat that applies to most SIGINT, and quite possibly Top Secret/SCI, the highest normal classification we have. In that case, it was about as far from Unclassified as it’s possible for an email to be.
No surprise, NSA is aflutter this weekend over this strange matter. One Agency official expressed to me “at least 90 percent confidence” that Mr. Blumenthal’s June 8 report was derived from NSA reports, and the Agency ought to be investigating the matter right now.
There are many questions here. How did Sid Blumenthal, who had no position in the U.S. Government in 2011, and hasn’t since Bill Clinton left the White House fifteen years ago, possibly get his hands on such highly classified NSA reporting? Why did he place it an open, non-secure email to Hillary, who after all had plenty of legitimate access, as Secretary of State, to intelligence assessments from all our spy agencies? Moreover, how did the State Department think this was Unclassified and why did it release it to the public?
No one can say that this does not rise to the level of a crime, and if they are, they are only lying to protect some fanatical, ambitious, narcissistic witch who will do anything (including lie to the families of four American killed at Benghazi and then say they're lying) to get more power and aid in Richard Milhous Hussein-Obama's Alinskying of Amerika.

Guns, Spying On Congress...What Bothers Me Isn't Obama's Lawlessness

What bothers me more than the lawlessness of this Regime under Richard Milhous Hussein-Obama is the outright cowardice of the GOP leadership in Congress to stop it.

I'm talking to the GOP establishment's new savior, "Pretty Boy" Paul "Hey Girl, I Only Pretend To Stand Up for the Constitution" Ryan, who deserves to have a yellow streak painted up and down his back for the way he and the equally ball-less Mitch McConnell not only surrendered to Obama on the budget, but funded Klan Parenthood, sanctuary cities, as well as the unconstitutional executive amnesty and importation of Syrian "refugees" into our nation.


So when Ryan stands up against Obama's illegal and unconstitutional executive action on guns, I see another guy just flapping air who, as we've come to expect from the RINO establishment, is only an act.

But this is what too many of us have come to expect. Words only mean something when they are political expedient. Like when Obama told his liberal buddy David Letterman he learned being President meant you had to represent all of the country.


All that was "just words." Instead of representing the entire nation, Obama has done nothing but pit one group, class, race, gender, ethnicity, against one another. He regularly attacks law-abiding Americans, law enforcement, our military and anyone who stands for the Constitution while siding with Muslims, illegal aliens who have broken our laws, gang-bangers, and Islamofascist nations who not only wish death to our nation, but also desire to murder the Jewish state of Israel in a second Holocaust.

The Constitutional right to keep and bear arms should non-negotiable, except to liberal fascists like Obama and Hitlery Rotten Clinton. Of course, these liberal bleeding hearts masquerade their attempts at gun control or nationalized health care with good intentions. But that sugarcoats the real intent. As Howard Roark, the protagonist in Ayn Rand's "The Fountainhead" said:

"Every major horror of history was committed in the name of an altruistic motive."

Look at what attempts at "gun control" brought to Germany in the 1930s.  The state realizes that in order to control a people, you have to disarm them.

This past weekend, I attended a gun show nearby, which is hosted several times a year. I was interested in checking out handguns for self-defense and also wanted to find out about this so-called "gun show loophole" Obama and the liberal gun grabbers keep talking about. Guess what? You can't just walk up to a booth, hand over money and walk away with a gun. You have to fill out a form for a background check. So all this talk about closing the so-called "gun show loophole" is a load of propaganda the gun grabbers use to play on the emotions of people who might not know.


But, to my point, what is the so-called Opposition Party going to do? Violating the Second Amendment (part of our Bill of Rights) and spying on our allies and members of Congress are, in my mind, impeachable offenses.

But Ryan, McConnell and the GOP cowards refuse to do anything. Could it be that, because we know Obama has spied on them, he's blackmailing them for their votes (as many of us have suspected)?

Ten Year Blogoversary

Well, I cannot believe it, but today is the ten year anniversary of this blog, which began with this post.

A lot has happened in ten years. For those who don't know, I'm no longer "marooned" in Marin County, CA. I've lived in the almost equally insane liberal area known as Farifax County, Virginia (just outside of even more insane Washington DC) since 2007. Along the way, I've met many interesting people, covered many newsworthy events, helped expose a few lies, oh, and I appeared in a movie as well.

The last couple of years have been personally difficult, and that has affected my output.

I had no idea what all would have happened when I started this blog. I initially started it because I needed an outlet. The uber-liberal Marin IJ would only publish so many letters to the editor, and there wasn't much of viewpoint other than the typical 1960s hippie-dippie drivel. So, I wanted to give at least one real "alternative" voice.

I don't think 10 years ago I, or anyone else, imagined how our freedoms and way of life would be threatened by the liberals as they are today, under the (for all practical purposes) "Dicktatorship" under Richard Milhous Hussein-Obama and his DemonRAT party. Even worse is the absence of any opposition party in the Republicans, and those Republicans who dare to oppose are treated like "wacko birds" or the kid with the measles.

That's why 2016 is the most important year we as a nation face. It will decide whether or not we have a Constitution, a rule of law, or the blood of those who sacrificed in wars to defend our way of life will be all in vain if the GOP decides to keep going the way of the moderate who is all but indistinguishable from the liberal.

So now that the year is started...
