Paracord Bracelets: Survival Near the Palm of Your Hand

John Kerry: Global warming is “world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”
Yes, Mr. Kerry (“our” Secretary of State) just said that last week. That means you, dear reader, exhaling CO2, are a “terrorist.” You had better keep an eye on that Agenda 21 drone hovering outside your window! And now, presumably even the [...]

.22LR: Truth & Myth

The Ashbrook Center of Ashland University has recently published a collection of historical American documents that is titled, 50 Core American Documents: Required Reading for Students, Teachers, and Citizens.
