Those who are familiar with the 28 Principles of Liberty outlined in The 5000 Year Leap, are acquainted with the claim that these are the principles upon which the Founders based our new government, thereby assuring us of lasting peace , prosperity, and freedom. Occasionally the question is asked, “Where can we find these principles in our…
A woman in a hot-air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered heraltitude and spotted a man in a boat below.
She shouted to him, “Excuse me,can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”
The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feettabove sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.
“She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a …

I have found a love for reading over the last few years. Reading has been a challenge for me, if the book does not grab me in the first couple of chapters, then it usually gets shelved and never picked up again. I like books, but have a hard time getting into them at times. Here is a list of some very short books, that should take readers little to no time at all to read. This is my reading list for 2010.

In a recent article in GQ, Clint Eastwood was named “Badass of the Year”. In this article he is quoted saying “We’re becoming more juvenile as a nation. The guys who won World War II and that whole generation have disappeared, and now we have a bunch of teenage twits.”
Can you say refreshing? I love it when someone in the “liberal Hollywood scene” says something as true and to the point as that. Society has gone away from making the heroes played by Clint Eastwood as idols to the idols we have today. Who do you think has more …

Wallace v. Jaffree (1985)…
To start this post, let’s define a few terms:
A patent for an invention is a grant of a property right by the Government to the inventor (or his or her heirs or assigns), acting through the Patent and Trademark Office. The term of the patent shall be 20 years from the date on which the application for the patent was filed in the United States or, if the application contains a specific reference to an earlier filed application under 35 U.S.C. 120, 121 or 365(c), from the date the earliest such application was filed, subject to the payment …
In Sunday School, we went over the lesson “In Mine Own Way“. We talked about how to be Spiritually Self Reliant, and then we talked about Physical Self Reliance. I want to make a couple comments on the second one.
Is Physical Self Reliance only about storing Water and Food in case you need it? I think that may be the letter of the law, but not the spirit of the law. You know, if you have the money, you can pay a company like daily bread – 25 year worry-free food storage to send you as much food as …
