In case you needed proof that Nature is more powerful than we are…

Take a look at what happened last night in Iceland.  A volcano that had been dormant for about 6,000 years erupted, lighting up the night sky near the Iceland Capital of Reykjavik. Isn't this beautiful?  It demonstrates the raw power of Nature.  Maybe it thought that the humans were just getting too complacent, blaming the …

I Value My Liberty

It's a pity that the vast majority of the residents of my state of Washington do not.  They voted overwhelmingly to continue to be the slaves of the State, both the National and the local.  They voted their State Dictator into an unprecedented third term.  They even enthusiastically purchase their own chains of slavery (masks), …
