Reflection on Losing Ginsburg

America lost an important member of the family last night. Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg succumbed to complications of cancer and passed away yesterday. And we should be thankful for the value she played in our lives and her contribution to American history. Her work on the Supreme Court has been groundbreaking and led… Continue reading Reflection on Losing Ginsburg

Resolution to Change the Locks

But Eric, you’re more in line and in agreement with the Republican Party and conservatives than the Democrats, so why is most of your energy these days put towards the demolition of the Republican Party and conservatives? Why all the mockery? Good question, glad you asked. Let me answer it the long way. You have… Continue reading Resolution to Change the Locks

This is What You Want, This is What You Get

I said I’d be focusing less on the federal government and more on local solutions but, wait, I’m gonna get back to that in just a minute. First, I feel the three ring circus in Washington needs to be called out for what it is. Regardless of what side you fall on or maybe you’ve… Continue reading This is What You Want, This is What You Get

A Libertarian Perspective – Immigration

Immigration has always been an issue in the Americas, not just North America. But all the Americas. Starting several thousand years ago, homo-sapiens crossed the Siberian land bridge, entered what is now Alaska, and over several generations, made their way all the way down to what is now Argentina and Chile. We’re something of a… Continue reading A Libertarian Perspective – Immigration

The Return of the Steady

Miss me? Yeah, I’ve been away a bit. Partially intentional and partially by simply tiring of the circus that has become American politics. The era of Trump has turned the Republican Party into a party of zero ideas and a cult of personality and worse, the Democrats into raging weirdos also working with fun-time personalities… Continue reading The Return of the Steady

An Acceptable Gridlock

My beloved Libertarian Party didn’t do as well as I hoped this 2018 mid-term. And I’m part of the problem. For the first time in over twenty-years, I did not vote straight Libertarian. This time, I voted a mix of Libertarian and Democrat. I used to vote Republican if no Libertarian was on the ballot.… Continue reading An Acceptable Gridlock

American Homage

On August 23, 2018, someone on Twitter reminded everyone William Wallace was executed that same day in 1305 in the most horrible fashion. He was castrated, disemboweled and innards burned in front of him. He was hanged and finally beheaded. This occurred because of his failure to submit to the King of England. He chose… Continue reading American Homage

State Break Away

The Helsinki Summit held on July 16, 2018, demonstrated to the world something very shocking. That a United States President would grant equal value of the word of a pathological lying, dictator, murdering thug of a former KGB Colonel, on equal grounds as the entire United States intelligence community. When asked if Russia meddled in… Continue reading State Break Away

The Face of Privacy in an Online World

With social media reigning supreme, taking in the majority of Internet traffic next to Netflix, I’ve been wondering if these young innovators ever saw their creations becoming what they are today. Do you think Jack Dorsey ever saw Twitter being used as the preferred method of a United States President’s direct communication tool? Or Mark… Continue reading The Face of Privacy in an Online World

Meeting With the Bobs

Whenever a tragedy occurs, or when a need is needed, the first thing uttered by my fellow Americans is that government should do something. I’m not sure where this comes from. Perhaps it originated from Roosevelt’s New Deal (which was an overhaul of government responsibilities, turning it into more of a nanny state) and snowballed… Continue reading Meeting With the Bobs

Well Regulated – Reloaded

I grow tired of writing about guns in America. And I only seem to have to do it after a tragedy where someone is harmed through an action where a gun was used. Considering how often this actually happens, I’m surprised I get to write about anything else at all. In America, every day, more… Continue reading Well Regulated – Reloaded
