Fed Ex, my most recent Ex!

Star Date – October 2014, yes this was “in the can” this long, you will understand soon enough.

As a micro business, I live and die by deliveries. I need parts to repair, build and modify technology in order to take care of my clients. I also rely on parts from vendors like Brownells. That is part of the “Global Economy”.

I miss DHL! I tried to use them exclusively in my shipping out and in when possible but over the years they just have not been able to compete or for some other reason they have come, gone, come, gone and now seem to be international only.

My UPS driver is great, works with me, never an issue! Insert angelic sounds here. They work with me, help me with deliveries and in general are very good to excellent to work with. I do admit, during the Holiday’s I have had an issue or two, directly related to temporary drivers delivering to the front door, not under the car port.

FedEx is my Ex. I hate them, it seems I get a new driver every 6 months. They don’t know where to leave a package and seem to only care about getting done for the day.

How to dress when you are out and about

Now, you can dress yourself how you want to, this is America. However, before you do, I would like you to take a few things into consideration.

I don’t believe in dressing overtly “tactical”. If your job requires it, that is another story, however body guards in the US of A really don’t need to look like “bodyguards”. The Office Assistant or Personal Assistant look draws less attention from the client and the people they interact with.

If you are just an everyday “Joe” going to work, visiting family, shopping at StuffMart, then, in my humble but amazingly accurate opinion, dressing tactical is undesirable. Continue reading How to dress when you are out and about

A 40 day calling to Pastors and churches

Lately I have written and posted articles challenging our elected officials, law enforcement and judges to, for a certain timeframe, do what is right.

Now it is time to challenge those that claim the most authoritative power, churches.

I should have had this out 35 days ago, with elections occurring now. Yup, I expect Churches to talk about politics.

Yes, God did ordain the church and politics as one

Prepping / Emergency food

I have been working on this article for about two years, it was just not ready to be published, then this week Price Cutter had canned veggies for 29 cents a can. Harter House used to weekly have them for 39 cents, now I noticed they are up to 49 cents. With that in mind, here are my ideas on stocking up on food, the EASY and INEXPENSIVE way to do it.

After all who wants to eat green cookies?
After all who wants to eat green cookies?

There are more than a few articles about food for long and mid-term. Some say to buy it all at once, others give a list of what to buy every week. Many are based on ‘dry’ goods (beans and rice) only or refer you to MRE’s or premade freeze dried foods. While all these are ‘good’ articles you should get food you will actually and ‘normally’ eat as a part of the solution. Continue reading Prepping / Emergency food

365 day challenge to Law Enforcement

City, County, Constables, State, and Federal alphabet soup (FBI, DHS, BLM and the such – don’t’ exclude yourself, include yourself). I have challenged our legislatures and our judges to set the American people free, today I challenge you to do the same. For the next 12 months, do not harass any citizens Yes I dared to say it.

The vast majority of you have “to protect and serve” on the sides of your vehicles, that is all I am asking you to do. Continue reading 365 day challenge to Law Enforcement

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

As we Americans celebrate 240 years of independence today, we contemplate our current state of the Government and wonder if a true 2nd revolution would have occurred if the same men were alive today as were in 1776.

As a  man, overall, I think I would be “that guy”, always coming out ahead, surviving, growing stronger, leading others. The fact is, from the 1760’s good men had died, and all throughout the years, good and great men died. Even those that survived were and are not recognized and celebrated. Below are some of the notes on what happened to the men whose signed our Declaration of Independence. Continue reading Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Ignoring and over ruling of 40 unconstitutional laws – a call to Judges

Judges: City, Municipal, County, State, Regional, Federal, Supreme Courts. I have a challenge for you.

I challenge you to remove / overturn / dismiss cases involving unconstitutional laws for your City, County, State or Federal jurisdiction.

To make it easy on you, select 40 such unconstitutional laws and constantly dismiss or throw out such cases, then turn on the idiot prosecutor for filing them and lecture them about the rule of law. After a few examples are made, your unnecessary workload will be greatly reduced. Continue reading Ignoring and over ruling of 40 unconstitutional laws – a call to Judges
