  THE SHIT IS THE SHINOLA   Are you happy yet?   Tubularsock has run through all the major YouTube comedy shows to attempt to find at least ONE laugh that would relieve Tubularsock’s total and complete outrage and disgust about how far down we have come as a nation. WE ARE FUCKED!   The political establishment has created what they believe is credible verbiage to spew to the American public which would make a reality TV show producer puke.   And as a consequence have in reality provided comedy gold for comedians without them having to even add to the joke because the joke is built into the political bull shit!   Then we as a nation, HELL, as a civilization, have passed over the tipping point!   Now not to get sentimental here but there was a time in America where, THE LIE of who we were, as a coun…

Homestead Security and Homeless Vets

Given some of the recent discussions here at the Writer Beat, it seemed like a good idea to post this item.    There is never any such creation as “the perfect defense” for a house, a business or any other structure, and certainly not for an entire isolated homestead completely…

The Apprenticeship

I am almost feeling sorry for the man. Imagine that you have been trapped all of your life in a search for approval, yet never have been satisfied. First you tried to gain the approval of your father, and even though you were showered with wealth, you continually had to return to your real sugar da…

Writer Beat contributor Face Palm and I have been having some interesting discussions, agreeing on a few things and disagreeing on a lot more. Part of the fun when civil discussion ensues is learning new things from other people whose perspectives differ from mine. Anyways, Face Palm convinced me to…

Walls are but one part of the solution

No, walls are not the end all be all. They are but one part of the solution, Walls can free up enforcement personnel to concentrate on weak areas. Walls can make it easier to install electronic surveillance and sniffers out of reach of those who would disable them.   Immigration reform also nee…

Tories and Trump and the funnelling of wealth.

There is an underlying principle found in both Trump and the Tories - how to channel more wealth to the powerful and wealthy and get away with it.   They do this under the guise of tax cuts that greatly favour the wealthy as well as pay freezes for workers.    Now, these tax cuts, eve…

Long Term Food Storage

For most Homesteaders, it is going to be preferable to store large volumes of food on the homestead, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) notwithstanding . For many homesteaders, much of the food storage on the homestead will be fruits, vegetables and even meats that have been canned or oth…

It must have been Veterans Day one year during the last decade, when Charene, our Human Resources Manager, walked into my office and said “Thank you for your service, Ed.” At first I was shocked, literally. It has been over 45 years since my service days and no one had ever said those wo…

The Value of Religion. The Significance of God

One of the best ways to understand the role religion has played in the evolution of civilization is by removing what came out of it. So let's start. The easiest items would be the monuments since they are the most visible. Starting with the earliest civilizations (and in no particular order) th…

Inalienable Rights, Right?

About a month ago, I was having an interesting discussion with two WB contributors about “inalienable rights”. If I were put their definition into this term, it seems to mean natural claims that individuals have over their societies. These rights are inalienable because they transcend al…

Democrats Against America

Democrats now freely display the sort of anti-Catholic bigotry that JFK was thought to have vanquished in the 1960 presidential campaign. As they have done with so much of their history, the Democrats have deposited JFK and the 1960 campaign down the memory hole. I wrote about the anti-Catholic bigo…

i just read a rather interesting article, speculating about the ways and means Trump might TRULY drain the swamp.   If anyone's been following James O'Keefe and his various hidden cam vids, one knows that at least 3 State dept./DoJ employees were caught on tape confessing to how they've been de…

Religion - Source of All Evil

ALL RELIGIONS ARE WRONG. ALL OF THEM. ABOUT EVERYTHING. Don't trust them. Don't believe in them. Most important, don't give them your money. If it wasn't for these various religions, the world would be a much, much, much better place to live. The vast majority of bloodshed, conflict, and general mis…
