Obama’s Pick for the Supreme Court

“I would hope that a wise white man with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a black woman”… Sounds racist, doesn’t it? What Obama’s pick for Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor … Continue reading

Motorcycle Tires – Finally

Well, I finally got the tires mounted on my Suzuki. As mentioned earlier, I mounted the tires myself, to save the $150 the dealer would have charged. Of course, I had to buy a set of tire irons, and altogether, … Continue reading

Racism in the United States

Bayou Renaissance Man said it so well, that there’s no point in me writing it here. Walmart has a book section devoted to black literature. I’ve often wondered what would happen if they put in a similar section for white … Continue reading

An Unusual Day Cutting Pulp Wood

This is the true story of one day cutting pulpwood. Granted, it was an unusual day – but this all happened on one day. We usually started early, because it was cooler. On this particular day, Rick’s cousin Gene was … Continue reading

Transparency in Obama’s Government

A good article over at MichelleMalkin.com. Our illustrious government is releasing photos of alleged prisoner abuse that will embarrass and put at risk U.S. citizens worldwide – but they won’t release the photos taken of the Air Force One fly-over … Continue reading
