    Define the lunacy of the liberal Reich? Politico, the flaming slingshot of Democrats across this nation, claimed in a double fit of Espresso rage that Rick Perry was sending troops to the border to kill children? That's right, not to stop thousands of undocumented illegals streaming into a sovereign state, dare I say country, without immunizations or permission, but to kill their innocent children in hopes no one would notice? After all, that's what modern day Republican Governors do in the information age…kill children to increase the value of Snapchat. Hmm, I'm confused, are we living beneath the propaganda banner...

    Several years ago, we had a burglary and guns were stolen from our house. About a year ago, one of them turned up on a thug, who was reaching for it in his waistband and subsequently was tasered by the police before he was able to use it one them. In the end, the gun helped to put him away, but even with priors (including a shooting about 10 years back) he only received a sentence of 3 ½ to 7 years from our pathetic “justice” system. Fast forward to the present. I was informed that I could get my...

The boys have not said a word and oddly, none of them have shoelaces. This is weird and I'm not sure what to make of it or what to do. Being in a TSA zone, I sure don't want to start a protest.

I’ve kept in shape and have always enjoyed lots of butter (I knew it was good for me before Time announced it!). But I still know that, in the end, death is a place where we are all equal. Science and technology will eventually find a way for people to live a very long time, if not “forever.” The first to benefit will be the very wealthy, but the...

    As the intensity and ferocity of national and international events seems to accelerate towards chaos, it seems to me and many others that all this is unfolding by human design. Forces at work on national and international levels seem to have been coordinating just such a climax for many years. It often appears that opposing interests are merely battling it out, but then there is often the sense that the appearance of opposing interests is merely an illusion put forth to keep us off guard as to what is actually happening on a larger scale. Is there a grand conspiracy,...

    One week to the June 3rd GOP primary for senator in New Jersey! This week is CRUCIAL for Rich Pezzullo, as he is running in perhaps the most underwatched yet IMPORTANT primary in the country. He is polling either #1 or #2, depending on the poll or the flavor of the day. Nonetheless, he is the most consistently conservative candidate in the race who will caucus with the Ted Cruz / Mike Lee wing of the Republican Party if he wins the primary, then beats Cory Booker.
