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.

Best wishes,

I totaled the amount of federal, state, and local taxes I paid so far in my lifetime.

.

I did it on a whim and doing so gave me an arrogant sense of entitlement.  Now I want the government to mow my lawn, paint my house, and kiss my ass. 

Politicians really do suck.  They are not public servants; they are self-serving parasites.  Republicans want to do nothing when they should do something, and Democrats want to do something when they should do nothing. 

A high school student recently bragged to me that he would be earning a million dollars a year by the time he retired.  I smiled at him and said that by the time the government inflates this debt away, a million dollars a year would be the minimum wage.

Greetings from Texas,
Your right about inflation and price hikes. The best example I have is the Datsun 240, a really nice car. It had a long list of features that would usually have cost big bucks, that were standard on the car. It was introduced when I was in high school, don't recall the year. It first sold for under $3,000.00 new if memory serves me correctly.

Price a new car today. Even a botton of the line new car.
