In my collection of books I have a Primer from Pennsylvania. I do not have it handy at this moment to give you the date on the book or the age for which the book was written but I remember reading through it knowing I was absolutely clueless on many things students from a bygone era had to know by time they graduated High School.
That leads me to a quick mention of David Barton and Wallbuilders and especially to pointing out a fantastic segment on the Glenn Beck Radio Program the other day:
Embeded in the article are the following three link:
- George Washington: Farewell Address, September 19, 1796
- Dwight D. Eisenhower: 421 – Farewell Radio and Television Address to the American People, January 17, 1961
- Ronald Reagan: Farewell Address to the Nation, January 11, 1989
I hope you will read Glenn’s post and then go back through the three links as well. Then for a great educational experience, watch these two Wallbuilders videos:
It appears the Obamarama Tactics are now being employed by the GOP Leadership. There seems to be an embracing of chaos happening as they work to “smirk and smile” while telling us they are acting to get things done…in a back room with no transparency.
Like #FullRepeal? ….Not.
Like #DefundPP? ...Not.
Like #NoAmnesty for #IllegalImmigrants? uh, looking like a NOT.
And now Ryan flapping his soup coolers on #TaxReform?
I will believe Ryan and McConnell when I see them actually whip the votes for 1) Full Repeal of Obamacare, 2) End all funding to Planned Parenthood, and 3) Never give amnesty to illegals as the first real progress in tax reform.
Dudes, seriously. It is all about #CutCapBalance the Budget if you truly want tax reform.
Glenn Beck had a great show this evening. I love how he and David Barton are teaching, orienting and giving opportunities to The Interns to experience hands on learning with freedom of thought to discover the world around them.

There was a story on The Blaze about Kelli Ward’s “poorly timed” email. Yes. Poorly timed indeed.
And yet Jeff Flake is not necessarily the best person for the Senate if you stand for Conservative Values.
Research facts on each candidate and scrutinize what is claimed by the candidate, what she or he stands for before and after being elected.
- Conservative Review on Jeff Flake
- Heritage Action on Jeff Flake
- I dread showing the one from FreedomWorks because what they measure compared to Heritage and CR pales in comparison.
Speaking of Poorly Timed: AHCA
Where does Jeff Flake stand on #FullRepeal and has he kept his promises to stand as a Conservative from day one?

It is almost like Christmas, only better because we do not really do Christmas presents for ourselves because we get presents throughout the year. So it is like Christmas every time we get a package. And oh yeah. Lots of packages this week.
My adorable Uncle Ed discovered a Sylvania CD/Radio player that he absolutely loves. He is legally blind and he can work this player with great ease. With the price being so reasonable, he has purchased several as gifts to give to people who are blind or are going blind as a true gift of love in service to others.
He also bought one for my mother (she is not blind nor going blind). The one he bought for me arrived on Tuesday and the batteries he so thoughtfully purchased for me arrived on Wednesday.
By the way, I am not blind. He just loves me so he bought me one because he loves me.
Today my Indian Clubs with DVD arrived. Man-o-man I love those things. My Honey-do picked the package up at our office suite (UPS offers fabulous service) and brought it to me when I was at Guns Out CrossFit today. Cannot express how happy that made me except for the fact that I did open the box immediately, got them out, and as soon as the area was clear I went to town swinging those babies around. #HappyHappyHappy
As I left the box I got a text, from Honey-do, and he said two more boxes had arrived. Oh yeah. I knew exactly what was in those puppies. He was back at work already. He said he would pick them up on the way home for me.
I know, a great Honey-do. #DontBeJealous
The Premium Set arrived after lunch time via UPS. Now I have every CrossRope there is to date. Next week I can begin CrossRope jumping again! Woohoo and Whoop-de-doooo!
And the last package was not one but two copies of Mike Lee’s book Written Out of History. One for me and one for…..
…..to be continued.
The other day I posted a comment on Twitter about Montana politics. I was immediately hit with a barrage of Twitter Trolls challenging my thoughts and interestingly enough they were mostly Democrats who lean Progressive. Furthermore, most of them were not from Montana.
Bots? Probably. The Progressives have hit me before on other issues they are trying to drive.
Today I saw the following post about an important election in Montana. With permission, I am posting Brad Lotton’s Facebook comments about his support for Greg Gianforte for Congress, with the caveat that I know Brad and trust his opinion on this one.
The special election is upon us and I am voting for Greg Gianforte to represent me in Washington. Even though Gianforte has lived in Montana nearly his entire working career and has raised his family here his opposition continually portrays him as an out-of-stater.
Interestingly in our current Montana legislature made up of 150 members 60 list their place of birth as some place other than Montana which is 40% of our representation. Of the 100 members of our House of Representatives 39% of Republicans and 42% of Democrats list themselves as coming from outside of Montana. In the Senate 44% of Republicans and 33% of Democrats list birthplaces. These numbers do not even include those who failed to list a birth place when filling out their legislative profiles.
Much ado about nothing! Send a guy to Washington with some business sense to deal with the $18 trillion dollar debt instead of the guy that can’t even pay his own personal bills.
