A Divided Nation?

In Politics by Staff Writer0 Comments

Ferguson MissouriThis VIDEO [Michael Brown’s Mother] shows exactly the type of “mentality” that continues to divide our Nation. A cause; born out of the grief and anguish felt by a mother for the loss of her son. That grief is now exhorted by a political system that feeds upon the division of its citizens to further destroy this country through any means possible.

This is a battle tactic that has been used for years. They create a diversion (Martin and Brown) who are really only “pawns” in this callous game they’re playing and on any other normal day would just be a casualty of life, but because it is “white on black” it plays better in the media. Proof of this is urban drive by shootings of black on black initiated violence. Where’s this”No justice, no peace” then? Why is the media downplaying those murders? Why isn’t Sharpton banging that drum? Is the loss of innocent lives not media worthy? Is the life of a 5 year old little girl who was playing innocently on a playground worth less than a grown man who ignored the orders of a law enforcement officer?

Is 50 the new 30? Let’s explore that a bit…

In Health & Fitness by Staff Writer0 Comments

Alright, so we now know that I’ve started “Testosterone Replacement Therapy” through Royal Mens Medical Center. Let’s take a few and talk about Testosterone.

 

What is it? Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group. It is found in mammals, reptiles, birds and other vertebrates.  It is secreted by the testicles in males and the ovaries in females, but the adrenal glands also play a small part in its production. It’s responsible for the development of the male reproductive tissue and it also helps with characteristics such as muscle development, bone mass/density and growth of body hair.  It is also necessary for general health and well-being as well as the prevention of osteoporosis.  The anabolic effects of testosterone (test) deal with muscle growth while the the androgenic effects are reflected in our voices as well as beards and other body hair.  It is of note that women also have and need testosterone in their systems as well, but in much smaller amounts that help with mood and sexual desire among other things.

Limitation of Power: Why You SHOULD “Do Politics”!

In Articles by Staff Writer0 Comments

Pericles On PoliticsThe old adage, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” is being played out right here in America. The irony is that the United States of America was founded upon the limitation of power on the part of the government. Divided, co-equal branches of government, checks and balances and strictly limited, enumerated powers have all seemingly fallen by the wayside. The question is, WHY? What went wrong? Who is to blame? Of course, depending on who you ask, you are liable to get a whole host of different answers to those questions, simple because those who are truly responsible simply will not accept the blame. So, who IS to blame, who IS responsible for the absolutely corrupt and power hungry leviathan that our government has become?

YOU ARE! I AM! Our parents and grandparents are to blame as well. In short, it is We The People as a whole who have defiled this nation and fed the power hungry leviathan.

Respect, Disrespect and Self-Respect: I Do NOT Think These Words Mean What You Think They Mean.

In Rants by Staff Writer0 Comments

Respect Is Earned, NOT Demanded.In the aftermath of the Michael Brown / Officer Darren Wilson grand jury findings, the focus of the rage in Ferguson Missouri and across the country has begun to morph. As the EVIDENCE comes out, it overwhelmingly supports the version of events as told by Officer Wilson, multiple witnesses and the forensic evidence. With no evidence of police misconduct or racism, the unrest has begun to focus on the issue of respect and disrespect. A perceived lack of respect of the black community in general and the seemingly disrespectful way that Michael Brown’s body was handled after the shooting. All of which seems to be the result of ignorance and lack of self-respect.

So, once again we saddle up the “words have meanings” dead horse and beat it to death again.

Respect: a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.

Disrespect: lack of respect or courtesy or to show a lack of respect for; insult.

Self-Respect: pride and confidence in oneself; a feeling that one is behaving with honor and dignity.

Did We Expect Anything Less

In Rants by Staff Writer0 Comments

Did We Expect Anything Less?It seems Obama‘s recent “stay the course” speech to the Ferguson rioters has provided an immense amount of media fodder for both sides of the political spectrum. Liberals calling him a genius who understands the problems of the oppressed while conservatives call him a “race baiter”. This would make me ROFL, if I didn’t have a dog that sheds like an old man, I would already be on the floor.

 

First I would like to say that my thoughts and prayers go out to all those in and around the Ferguson area, who may be affected by this insanity. Stay frosty and make good choices.

Homegrown Terrorism and Ferguson Missouri

Homegrown Terrorism and Ferguson MO

 

There is no other way to describe the threats being made and plans being publicized in anticipation of the probable “No Bill” from the Grand Jury investigation of the death of Michael Brown. The rhetoric and proposed “reactions” are terroristic threats, plain and simple. Things like this headline from “The voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA” – IF THE MURDERING PIG WALKS, AMERIKKKA MUST BE BROUGHT TO A HALT! Then there are those who advocate to “Indict the System, Not Just Darren Wilson” from Jacobin magazine which bills itself as “a leading voice of the American left, offering socialist perspectives on politics, economics, and culture. Using less inflammatory tones and under the auspices of “Reason” they call for an indictment of the entire “oppressive” law enforcement system. However, the one that really gets me, both in it’s ignorance and terroristic nature comes from NoIndictment.org

Snowpocalypse? Or Just Life?

In Rants by Staff Writer0 Comments

SnowpocalypseI really don’t get the news media’s sensationalization of this snow storm in the Northeast. When we lived in Aberdeen, South Dakota in the mid to late ’60’s, 5-6 feet of snow over night was not unusual, in fact was actually the norm once a month or so. People in Canada are ROFL.

My Dad often had to dig out a “path” to be able to get the snow mobile out of the garage to go to work on. Somewhere I have a picture he took where he rolled up the garage door, and there is a narrow black strip along the top that is the night sky; the white is the snow that was about 7 feet deep in our driveway.

The National Guard and the Army Corps of Engineers would go around bulldozing streets, parking lots and using skip loaders to clear driveways. Almost everyone had some kind of tractor or Bobcat they could use to dig themselves out, and helped those neighbors and relatives out who for whatever reason didn’t have their own.

Is 50 the new 30? Let’s see..

In Health & Fitness by Staff Writer0 Comments

DumbellsI begin this article, a bit differently than I would my “political or patriotic” rants (although I’m no less passionate about this topic). It’s more of a journal for young and old alike (mainly men), who have that “Improvise, Adapt and Overcome” type mentality. For most civilians, we’ve heard this phrase spouted from the lips of some “Jarhead”, but I’m here to tell you… it truly finds it’s roots deeply embedded within the psyche of a winner.

 

Now you may be asking yourself; what the hell is he talking about?” Physical Fitness; two words that most adult males have absolutely no time for! Well let me tell you… If you you don’t find a way to make time for it, you WILL lose it. So this article and those that will follow, serve to be a journal of my experience and experiment with physical fitness after “youth”. The why it’s so important, as well as how it’s possible to do, without becoming a lifetime member of the “gym rat” club.

So You Think All We Have To Do Is Vote Them Out Of Existence

In Politics by Staff Writer0 Comments

Keep It Up Brother, The Fight is not over by a damn sightSo you think we‘ve won the war, simply because we had an election where conservative values actually made a difference? Sure the new “grassroots” efforts of social media warriors across our inter-web finally got We the People’s dander up. Up enough to pull themselves away from “Dancing with the Stars”, so they could cast a vote in the right direction (although I’m truly uncertain what the “right” political direction is anymore…?).

 

So while you’re basking in your glory, please don’t break your arms patting yourselves on the back! It’s a step in the right direction for sure, but this is only one of many skirmishes We the People will have to fight in the foreseeable future. It’s time for all of us to realize that this “socio-fascist” precipice we are so precariously balanced upon is… OUR FAULT! Yep, that’s right, I said it… It’s OUR fault!
