Rush and Me

If you're an Accidental Tourist visiting from some other celestial rock, you don't know the significance of the passing of Rush Limbaugh (2/17/21). Look it up. You'll find everything from long-winded laudatory to wretchedly putrid bias. Political punditry has a way of bringing out the best in people and worst in scum. I should know - having frittered away 55 years of an otherwise exemplary life, making meters bounce and management cringe at some of America's Heritage radio stations in Major Markets across the country. Fortunately, audiences were more tolerant most of those pre-Cancel Culture years and the worst I suffered was the occasionally Breached Contract, otherwise known as Delayed Compensation (if you have decent attorneys - an oxymoron, I know). But I digress...My on-air relationship with El Rushbo is detailed highlighted in my book, " 50 Stories: 50 Years in Radio ." For the incurably inquisitive, here is the show from Atlanta, October 1990.   Profess

Our Deep State

Once the lawmakers of a nation become corrupt, then nothing works properly anymore, no matter the energy applied and thus, the impeachment trial is a good revelatory test bed for Americans to discover the calibre of folks in congress, where the fate of the nation is actually decided. We've been provided that opportunity but do we as a people, possess the morality and responsibility to take stock of the quality of our congressional representation and make the necessary changes? No, we don't. As for the deep state, every nation on earth has a "deep state", they're the roots of the ability of a nation, just like trees have roots and thus, the problem is not that we have a deep state, an inevitability for any old enough nation, but whether our deep state is noble or depraved, or as often occurs, merely competent. In our situation, we have a "deep state" (establishment..) that's depraved, ignorant of history, incompetent at management, and worst of all, v

Know Government; No Government Revisted

One again, it can be stated with certainty: there is no compelling reason for Government. If we confined the examination just to the beginning of 2020 and the 'arrival' of the so-call 'pandemic', there would be ample evidence to prove the point. The misinformation, disinformation, 'flip-flopping' reversals, inconsistencies and outright lies told repeatedly by so-called 'experts' and Government ‘officials’, elected, appointed and ‘career’, are boundless. It was done before the Public, repeatedly, in broad daylight vis mainstream media. Thousands of wanton deaths of the elderly and infirmed, literally imprisoned in nursing homes by questionably legal – but certifiably immoral - Government 'Executive Orders", strikes one mute. One only has to consider the megalomaniacal sociopath NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose addiction to power and the media spotlight had the unmitigated gall to pen a self-promoting, self-aggrandizing book touting 'leadershi

Open Letter from an American Coward

Many people - possibly you - will identify with the status of the author. Her rationale and points of reason may resonate. Brian Wilson Please save, screenshot, etc., then boost. I don’t usually ask for my content to be shared. What I a m  about to say though is perhaps the most important thing I will ever say in public, and in the present landscape of the internet, there is a very high probability that it is being silenced or erased even now as you read it. So, I am asking you to please, save an offline and/or archived copy of this letter RIGHT NOW. If, once you’ve read this letter, you feel that it has any value or interest whatsoever, please, as a personal favor, send it on through whichever channels, to whichever people you feel safe doing so. If you think what I say is absurd, please share my letter with your friends so you can all laugh at me. If you think that what I say is evil, please share it with your friends so you can all rage at me. If you think I deserve to be punished f

Walter E. Williams

I lost a good friend today. For over 30 years, we talked on and off the air, stayed in each other's homes, dined out with our wives, argued about wines, guns and agreed on everything political. He called the morning after Connie died to give us the sad news. Lots of better memories will help deal his loss. I'm happy I was able to memorialize our first radio chat; Story 37 in my "50 Stories" book.  Here is one of our last podcast from "Judging Freedom", recorded right after the 2016 election of President Trump.    

Friend Jim

Author Jim Bovard and I go back a few decades. Our initial on-air conversations were about his seminal works, "Lost Rights" and "Freedom in Chains". More books and more conversations followed. Over the intervening years, Jim's work hasn't improved; he was always at the top of his game. But the reasoning has seasoned and the edge has become keener. His message has never been clearer - or more urgent. BW Will Democracy’s Myths Doom Liberty? The Supreme Court declared in 1943, “There is no mysticism in the American concept of the State or of the nature or origin of its authority." In reality, the cardinal doctrines of contemporary democracy are layer upon layer of mystical claptrap. The phrases which consecrate democracy seep into many Americans’ minds like buried hazardous waste. If Joe Biden wins the presidential election, voters will be told that our political system is redeemed: the “will of the people” is now clear, Biden will rule with “the consent o

Smart Fighting

 T he state has forced significant changes to our lives which means we need to make significant changes to deal with it. We can't continue as if nothing has happened. We need to make fundamental changes to the way we live on a daily basis. It used to be fairly safe to go about your business in public by yourself but not anymore. New risks have been created by these political restrictions that make even going grocery shopping a potential crime. Millions of people all in the same place on a single day yelling, screaming, chanting, holding signs doesn't tax the state's resources, it accomplishes nothing except to give the people a chance to discharge their frustration. Their enforcers simply coral everyone and then abuse and arrest them. We need to start working together, going out in small groups, pooling our resources like an insurance pool, to minimize the risk for any one individual. Instead of ten million people in one place on one day, a million groups of ten everywhere,
