From an underground bunker in the Midwest..... I am a retired engineer with a wife and two daughters. I will volunteer my name from time to time but now here. I am alarmed to see my government descending into a thug state, where elite statists tell us how to live and whether we can keep any of our money or not. I believe and honor the Constitution of the United States and swear to uphold it even while those in Washington do not. My heroes are; Ayn Rand, Ronald Reagan, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Thomas Madison, Winston Churchill, Beethoven, John Wayne, my father, and Walt Disney.


    Dear Senator

    A copy of a recent message to my Senator:   Your recent vote against “Kate’s Law” and the defunding of sanctuary cities defieth all understanding, and reveals how pathetically degraded the Democrat Party has become. Your vote aids and abets cities that violate Federal law, defies the will of the people, and abdicates your duty to protect your own citizens. Not that disregard of your constituents | Read More »

    One Old Guy Against the Emperor

      I am an older guy, knocking on the door of 70. Over the years I’ve seen a gradual erosion of personal freedom and a growing disrespect for others and the rule of law. Disrespect and lawlessness now reach all the way to the Attorney General and the President. The President has become de facto emperor, his unpopular edicts constantly delayed past the next election. | Read More »

    Just found out our individual policy cannot be continued due to Obamacare. The cheapest replacement policy is 120% higher. An equivalent policy is more than 200% higher. We won’t buy insurance next year. Who the hell do you people think you are, telling everyone what they can and cannot buy? I am disgusted with the radicalized Democrat party. I am an old guy, but I | Read More »

    Chief Liar, Thug, and Extortionist

    The President is out rounding up the usual suspects, those evil Republicans and that source of Democrat athlete’s foot itch, Fox News.  His recent “offensive” contained the feeble statement that, “There’s no widespread evidence that the Affordable Care Act is hurting jobs.”  Can’t someone (besides me) call this what it really is “…a lie!”  Of course, that pales compared all the lies told before this | Read More »

    Dear Senator

    I sent the following to Senator McCaskill this morning, for what it’s worth:   I usually find it pointless to write to you since you don’t listen to your constituents.  Had you listened, you wouldn’t be supporting Obamacare because most of us don’t want it. I am writing today to inform you that I will not be buying health insurance next year.  I am not | Read More »

    Time for a Name Change

    Last week’s Democrat Convention may have been enjoyed by haters, radical abortionists, or masochists, but it demonstrated the failure of the party to live up to its name, especially with the “God vote” fiasco where the NOs were overruled by the teleprompter.  After all, this is the party for which it is OK for the dead to vote without showing ID.  So, it is time | Read More »


    Often in the days when I worked overseas, my only source of news was CNN International.  Two memories stick in my mind.  In the first, a CNN reporter was in Manila covering a so-called anti-American demonstration.  Behind the reporter were 5 or 6 people milling around, none of them carrying any signs.  I’ve been to Manila, and worked with many Filipinos.  Believe me, you will | Read More »


    These are discouraging times, more than three years of abuse of power, disregard for the rule of law and the Constitution, and disdain for the rights of the states and the will of the people.  Despite all this, polls indicate a substantial number willing to vote for more of the same.  Evidently, some people haven’t been stopping by Red State. Judging from the comments, those | Read More »

    Refuting the BS

    The following appeared at March 31st.  I am posting it here because I think it is a good strike down to some of Obama’s favorite lines.   THE VALUES OF PERICLES Pericles is the name I’ve given the red-tailed hawk we see circling over the empty field behind our house.  In Pericles’ natural state, his actions are based on what enhances his own life.   | Read More »

    A Letter to McCaskill

    Ma’am I have noticed your recent campaign ads on the St. Louis TV stations, those evil Republicans who want to take away granny’s medicare, and those evil multimillionaires and oil companies.  Spare me!  Can’t you people ever come up with anything new?  This is so trite and fake!  Don’t you have something positive to say?  Why don’t you run on your record?  Well, on second | Read More »
