Is Nena Sanchez Living in My Garage?

Nah! Just a wannabe

Well; I tried :-)  

Plain ol' garage cabinets aren't cool, so I dressed them up a bit after building them.  Very likely the closest I'll ever get to the Carribean.

A few thoughts and thank you videos from the Iraqis to Obama and all those who continue to parrot his words; "we're out of Iraq."
The first video, identified as “Baghdad, Iraq, May–­September 2005,” showed Blackwater convoys racing through town. Suddenly, the door of a Blackwate… Read full post »

Seemingly oblivious to the cause and effect of blowback, the Bush “Shocked In Self Awe” and the Obama “Rama Lama Boom Bang” of the past 12 years continues to provide us with ample unreasonable reasoning to continue the perpetual sate of war in the new American Frontier; the Am… Read full post »

FROM COWS TO FIATS

The world is literally packed with news of political, or more appropriately social dissention today. Revolution is so ripe in the air one can almost taste it with our eyes; we need not even look beyond the first page of Google News to see it, in black and white and frequently… Read full post »

Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes

Maybe it’s just me or hell, maybe it’s all you; either way, my preference that most things be outside the conventional is a way of life for me; non-conventional is conventional, at least for me!  Non-mainstream, if that’s a word, is one person’s oddity and another’s/… Read full post »

REMEMBER THE ALAMO

Remember the Alamo?  NO!  Remember the BAIL-OUTS!

This election season, please remember what our politicians did to us in favor of the world's elite.  They don't deserve reelection; NONE OF THEM!

They, the Republicans and Democrats alike sat in their DC offices and in… Read full post »

AMERICA: From Where I See It

In response to Old New Lefty’s Open Call, I thought I would provide some of my own perception of America and the world.

Stand Your Ground: A Free-For-All, or Are There Limits?

As it always does after a particularly bothersome incident, "the gun issue" is once again being hotly debated, argued with fevered pitch in the U.S.  as though life itself is somehow precariously out of balance and I can assure you that it indeed is, for anyone who finds them… Read full post »

All change requires, to use a worn out phrase a “paradigm shift.”  In order for America to rise again we need a change in focus at the very foundation and what better place to start than with the educational process in the U.S?

The old advertising slogan ‘Guinness is good for you’ is actually true it seems.

While Diageo, the manufacturer, makes no health claims for the product, scientific research shows a pint of Guinness a day is actually good for your health.
