North Carolina Shows Its Ass…. Again

Well, as a resident of the above mentioned tar heel state, I find myself this evening feeling a bit dirty, like someone spilled oil on me that I can’t get off. There have been times in my past that I wasn’t proud of “where I come from, ” and this is another. As some of you know, I grew up in a rather smallish mountain town (NOT South Park) in Pennsylvania. I wasn’t proud of it, but as I grew older, I became less embarrassed by it and now find that I am proud of where I grew up. Several years ago (11, in fact) I moved back to North Carolina. I had lived in NC for many years in the military and wasn’t thrilled about the idea of coming back here 11 years ago. But I have changed in that as well. I love living in North Carolina. It is a great state filled with good people.

Tuesday Night Open Mic for August 10, 2010

Greetings from the beaches of an undisclosed location. I have put palm trees up to block off my section of the beach. This evening I had dinner with a man who claimed he was the King of Spain.

Although it is costing Mrs. Weapon a ton! It is relaxing, however, and much needed. I apologize again for my limited participation during the vacation, but I am benefitting from the relaxation. Tonight we have a few interesting topics. We have the Department of Justice stalling on the MOVE Act, the Department of Defense admitting that government run health care is failing, home schooling on the rise, and the climate change fear monger crowd refusing to let a dead horse alone.

Proud to be a North Carolinian Today!

heath-shulerSo about 4 months ago, this journey into the blogging world began with Revolution calling me and talking about politics. We had just witnessed the election of a new President and realized that Congress was in the complete control of the Democrats. We were disgusted by the Republican Party and were interested in exploring the Libertarians. During one of these discussions we were talking about the so called “Blue Dog” Democrats when I said there was one to watch…
