  1. I’ve been waiting for someone to come along and build me a nice small business to make be one of the 1%, but so far it hasn’t happened.

    I guess I’ll have to just continue working for the man, because I’m now told I can’t do it on my own…. thats impossible!

  2. But you are only here because Al Gore invented the Internet!!
    Wake up and sniff the coffee, that Juan Valdez has shipped through government FDA enforced inspection ports.

    These words you type are only due to the education a Public School teacher supplied.


    1. These words you type are only due toin spite of the education a Public School teacher supplied.

      Fixed that for you.

      To be fair, I was a child of the 60’s/70’s when public schools actually taught things that might be usefull.

      1. I am happy to say that the beatings I received from the Immaculate Heart nuns in the 60’s were a great motivator to learn English, Math and Geography. My first run in with Public school was 10th grade. I knew all I needed to by then.

  3. IN the 60s and 70’s as a youth I was guinea-pig taught SMSG – “New Math” – and now I can’t do math worth a damn.

    Meanwhile I just spent the night in Twitter Gulag. Apparently if you respond to a Tweet and Liberals don’t like what you say they flag it as spam and then hid behind twitter-protection.

    1. I think we had pretty good schools, but I didn’t learn much in them until junior high. My brother Ron taught me to read (apparently before age 2, if I believe my sister Susan), and my sister Marilyn taught me arithmetic through division. (She was bored.)

  4. Does anonymity breed contempt?
    Allow me to propose that your discussions avoid emotionally laden pejorative language.
    We try to talk about grownup stuff here, and,”Up yours!!” is not helpful. It’s just a waste of time.
    Some of the people who oppose my stance on empowerment are amenable to persuasion. That’s why I would rather you used your time and energy doing things that might actually further the cause.
    When did any gun club in your area invite kids and families to a ‘Learn About Shooting’ event?
    Who among you sponsors a high school marksmanship team?
    Get the idea?
    Stop whining and go DO something, and if you won’t, then your rant sounds a little hollow…

      1. Feel free to enlighten me, but please do it with civil and rational discourse.
        I’m always open to new informaton and viewpoints.

          1. Repetition is not as satisfying to me as actual information.

            Which assumptions that I have made are incorrect?

            If it’s important that I know something about you, how will I learn if you won’t tell me?

            My first assumption was that you didn’t create thus blog. So why have such a defensive posture?

            1. The assumption that I’m whining and not doing anything, or that my readers are. You don’t know any of them, and it’s quite presumptuous, IMHO.

  5. Somehow, it’s hard to think of your opinion as humble.

    I would have welcomed a response from anyone who would dispute my point by describing what he does besides rant and pay, but I’m still waiting.
    I haven’t given up. But a lack of response carries its’ own message.
