Navigation? There are a "Home" button and an "Up" button on every page.
The Home button will take you back to the front of the site. The Up button will
always take you up or back one page to the previous page you were viewing,
usually a menu, to choose another article page or you can just use your
browser's "back" button.
I have left "You Are Here" and "A Few Quotes" as the first two pages in the site because I felt like doing it. All the rest of the pages are arranged in reverse chronological order within the year buttons below, (newest pages first). You might consider this to be a horizontal blog, since all pages are just one level down from the menu. The exception will be found in early 2009 when I first got started and tried using a "tree" structure. There's no database, no searching, no bells, no whistles.
You will find that a lot of the content is partly or fully taken from other
sites. I did this because: 1. They said exactly what I wanted to say, if I could
say it as well as they did. 2. I wanted to preserve something I read in a news
site. 3. I wanted to enhance the item with my own version of what I wish it had
said. Some of my work is original and serious. Much of my work is original and
parody. Anything I quote or steal is attributed and properly identified, right
down to the copyright warnings forbidding reprinting. Plagiarism is theft
Here are the Menu Buttons:
|The "Gadsden Flag", designed by Colonel Christopher Gadsden, was the first
flag of the U. S. Navy and Marine Corps during the Revolutionary War. The choice of a rattlesnake
was influenced by earlier use of the rattlesnake symbol by Benjamin Franklin who
felt that it was appropriate for many reasons:
I have been told that displaying this flag marks me as a violent right-wing militia extremist. Not Guilty. The Wikipedia article on the Gadsden Flag tells the story fairly accurately: of its first use by the American Military, before the Stars and Stripes flag was designed; and its present use by U S Military units subsequent to 9/11.
You will note that I sign some of my notes and comments as "EnemyoftheState". I finally adopted this 'nom-de-guerre' last year (2009) after various parts of our government, including the DHS, branded me a dangerous right-wing extremist because I am a military veteran, a gun-nut because I own firearms, a racist because I am white, an anti-Muslim because I am Christian, an anti-government dissident because I have sworn an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC.
I was not happy when the leftist Obama administration took over the country, but I did not decide that I was their enemy; if they wish me to be their enemy I will be most pleased to comply.
Electrons used in the construction of this site were personally created by Barack H Obama to provide meaningful employment for a disgruntled, disabled Vietnam veteran.
The nation owes a great debt to His Munificence, which can never be repaid. His wisdom and experience have never before been equaled in the office of the President of the United States. All Hail The Won.
