I feel obligated to mention that your government may not approve of you stopping by here to peruse the blog entries regarding GUNS. This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants. Insofar as governments, foreign or domestic, the Internet is all about surveillance and control. No matter where any of us choose to surf the web, there are always sharks in the water.

NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Financial doomsday is here for the state of Illinois


It will take a massive tax increase -- and $2 billion more in cuts -- to reach solvency, group says.

Illinois is government waste and corruption at its absolute finest, courtesy of our career politicians. Please, tell me again why you don’t vote.

I DID vote, brother, and it did absolutely no good.

So I left.

I have wondered how many people leave Illinois because of the taxes and anti-gun laws.

It may be simpler (and more profitable) for me to move. I've been checking out some possibilities...

I will admit that leaving IL wasn't entirely because of the condition of the state - there were personal issues going on also. I am now in KY, the land of open carry, CCW shall issue, and densely wooded areas not too far east of me that could prove beneficial in the future should TSHTF, if ye get my drift.

The Lexington area seems to have not been hit as hard by the economy; it might be something to look at.

My heart is in Tennessee, the rest of me is stuck here in Illinois. Mom and Dad moved up here from Tennessee in 1951 to find steady work. I'm partial to eastern Tennessee, but also am attracted to some areas around Chattanooga. Someday... maybe...
