Book/DVD Report. The West Memphis 3

This is a subject that I have been interested in since the beginning 5 May 1993. I was actually in West Memphis, AR. and Memphis, TN exactly 7 days before the Murders and saw first hand what the atmosphere was like at that time. And Passing through many times in the ensuing years I have […]

New Weapon Laws

Lets take on the proposed New Gun Laws, particularly the “Assault Weapons Ban” and “High Capacity Magazines“. Now I am all for keeping weapons out of the hands of criminals but, that would not have stopped any of the recent shootings our country has experienced.

I Wonder?……

….How many of those millions of people on the East coast that have been without electricity for a week might now agree with my outlook that ALL electric lines should be buried?…..  Hu-m-m-m, just a thought……  I also wonder, although I know the answer, how many politicians in Washington D.C. went without power for more […]

Please take the time to take a short survey please…..

These words have taken over the land, and I am extremely tired of them. I was going through my receipts for some tax stuff and I have noticed that 90% of the credit card/Cash register receipts have over half of the receipt about taking a Survey! Aren’t we supposed to be conserving paper? How about […]
