  1. Beautiful picture, Knight. Good morning!

  2. I really hate to post this under such a pretty picture, but the comments on the article pretty much make it worth the read.

    From Bob Owens……

    he United States is not a democracy, and it never has been. We are a Republic, and we have Constitutional rights that were written to support the inalienable rights granted us by our Creator.

    The oldest of humans rights is the right of self defense, and only slightly younger are the rights of self determination and the right of rebellion that Englightenment thinkers traced back to the earliest religious texts.

    The Second Amendment was written to ensure that Americans could never be enslaved by their governments the way that other governments enslaved their people. It was their express desire that every law-abiding American citizen be armed “with the sword and every terrible weapon of war,” including the most advanced military rifles, pistols, bayonets, grenades and cannon of their day (and yes, they even knew of early machine guns like the Puckle gun and rapid-fire assualt rifles like the Ferguson that fired 10-times faster than the common musket).

    They knew–as our current generation of legislators on both sides of the aisle are proving–that the government cannot be trusted with liberty. They always weaken it and pervert it, attempting to subvert it for their benefit. Governments that last long enough invarably stop serving the people, and attempt to force the people to serve the government. We are living in a time where the government is attempting that usurpation, and it will be our distinct privildge and honor to go to war against that tyranny and restore the liberties won for us by our forefathers, restoring this nation to First Principles without the curse of sexism and racism that haunted previous generations.

    Civil war is a horrible thing, but not the most horrible of things. This time, perhaps, we will get it right.

    I will not fire until fired upon, but if the enemies of Liberty mean to have battle, let it be on my watch, and let it begin here.

    I don’t know if you’ve heard of Adam Corolla, but he’s worth listening to. This is definitely NSFW!!!
    There are a lot of F-bombs, etc., but the man speaks the truth…………………

    For my geeky friends, from “Interesting Engineering” on FB. 🙂

    A male engineering student was crossing a road one
    day when a frog called out to him and said, “If you kiss
    me, I’ll turn into a beautiful princess.” He bent over,
    picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket. The frog
    spoke up again and said, “If you kiss me and turn me
    back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for
    one week.” The engineering student took the frog out
    of his pocket, smiled at it; and returned it to his pocket.
    The frog then cried out, “If you kiss me and turn me
    back into a princess, I’ll stay with you and do ANYTHING you want.” Again the boy took the frog out,
    smiled at it, and put it back into his pocket. Finally, the
    frog asked, “What is the matter? I’ve told you I’m a
    beautiful princess, that I’ll stay with you for a week and
    do anything you want. Why won’t you kiss me?” The
    boy said, “Look I’m an engineer. I don’t have time for a
    girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool.”

  6. LOL. Ain’t that the truth!
