The New Job in The New Place

I’ve told folks on my social media, but I realized I haven’t posted here for a bit. All of what follows is because of Tara. She’s been a rock for me when things were bad, and she stuck with me. And things kept getting better. She is very insistent that I understand my self-worth and […]

Oh Crap This Is Still Here

That’s right, I still have a blog. No, no, I didn’t just forget that I had a blog.  I’m just really really bad at keeping some kind of writing schedule for it.  No excuse, just an explanation. Do I have any thoughts of a political nature?  Not recently.  It’s the same old shit, isn’t it? […]

More than just Four

Hey all, I talked about the importance of the Fourth Amendment yesterday (and my concern with what our government has been doing).  But I’m going to dedicate this whole post to the Bill of Rights and the rest of the Constitution.  I’m taking this directly from the government archives website.  When was the last time […]

Significance of the Fourth

The Fourth Amendment, that is.  It’s the amendement in the US Constitution (it’s been there since the very beginning) that guarantees a citizen’s right to privacy and unreasonable searches.  The US Government has been unlawfully spying on all of its citizens.  We need to make the government aware that this is not acceptable.
