Obama – Auto Industry

Because of the recent polls that show the Democrates and the Obama Administration loosing ground, they are now going to re-name the cars that are being manufactured by the State Owned car companies.  Here are some of the names that they have been playing with.…

Tyranny

Picture by: Raymon Swanland – Tyranny of the Night

The above picture does not have anything really to do with this post except for the name.  But I thought it was a really cool picture, so I added it.

Tyranny: Opressive power; opressive power exerted by government.

Thomas Jefferson said, “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

James Madison said, “The very definition of tyranny is when all powers are gathered under one place.”

I propose two questions for consideration.…

Do you fear the government? 
Is all power in

My Caucus Speech

William Ellery, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a representative of Rhode Island stated:

“To be prosperous is not to be superior, and should form no barrier between men. Wealth ought not to secure the prosperous the slightest consideration. The only distinctions which should be recognized are those of the soul, of strong principle, of incorruptible integrity, of usefulness, of cultivated intellect, of fidelity in seeking the truth.”

I believe that William states what is really needed from a political leader.…

Strong Principles
Incorruptible Integrity
Usefulness (goals that are useful to the country that they serve)
Cultivated Intellect

Conservative vs Liberal – A conservative view

If a conservative doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.

If a liberal doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone..

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who’s to blame and who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn’t like a talk show …

Utah State Legislative Re-Cap… State Rights

If there has been a theme for this session of the legislature.  I would say that the theme for this session has been state rights.   Here is a recap of some of the actions done by the state legislature that are a push back to the federal government and a message to them that Utah wants to keep its freedoms and rights in Utah.…

Why did I buy a Springfield 40 S&W Sub-Compact?

I have been asked several times why I purchased a Springfield and not a Glock.  I have taken both shooting, and I like the feel of the Springfield a little better than the Glock, and I also like the safety features of the Springfield better.But first, lets discuss how the gun handles.  I have very big hands.  I thought for sure that there was no way I could use a sub-compact and feel comfortable with it.  So when I went to the store I was set on buying a full size XDM, but I tried the sub-compact.  I have to …

HARD DRIVE CRASH…..

If you have ever taken a hard drive apart, this is what it is suppose to look like.  Where I work we go through a lot of hard drives, and one of the tasks I have been given is to wipe the data from the drive, and then to destroy the ones that cannot be completely cleaned.  This is one that I opened to take what can be recycled out.   The drives that we are able to wipe are then sold to a computer recycle.

My girls have had fun helping me with the dead drives.  They have fun playing …

Springfield XD 40, 3 inch, 2 Tone


Well, I finally broke down and purchased a handgun.  I was debating between the 9mm or the 40mm, and was pretty sure I was going to get a Springfield XDM instead of the XD, but when I went to the store, and handled this baby, I had to have it.

I do not really like the feel of the gun in my hand unless it has the extended magazine in it.  The extended magazine gives the gun an additional inch or so in handle length.  But because this is a sub-compact, it will be easy to carry and use if …

A Dissertation on Liberty and Necessity, Pleasure and Pain – Benjamin Franklin

A Dissertation on Liberty and Necessity, Pleasure and Pain

Whatever is, is in its Causes just
Since all Things are by Fate; but purblind Man
Sees but a part o’ th’ Chain, the nearest Link,
His Eyes not carrying to the equal Beam
That poises all above.
Dryd.
