A Modern Tramp Abroad Part 5: A Tale Of Three Cities

Travel broadens even the narrowest minds, it often takes you out of your comfort zone and you are forced to tolerate and experience what you would normally never do voluntarily. Sometimes it is to eat food that you would not want to try, go to an opera or Ballet, be in large crowds, climb to new heights, talk to people different than you. For everyone it is something different, and it is often a wonderful experience.

Experience can help us to grow and learn. No one person has all the…

Is America (already) a Socialist Country?

The Question of Socialism

 While “We the People” have been working hard since 2009 to stop the implementation of Socialism in the United States, nothing seems to change to our demands; I have frequently questioned the lack of results to our Activism. I kept coming back to the question- Why aren’t we effective?

Then I wondered if we were fighting to elude something that already exists in full force…

I decided to “ask Google” if the United States of America is…

A Modern Tramp Abroad Part 4 London.

What can you say about a city that is thousands of years old? From before the Romans the Celts had a town here. The London Bridge Started as a pontoon bridge across the Thames River sometime around 400B.C. Like Paris it is full of diverse building styles, with monuments everywhere, there is truly history around every corner you turn. Unlike Berlin, which was total destroyed in the war and has few intact historical buildings, you…

A Modern Tramp abroad Part 3 Berlin

We won, the Germans lost, the British, the French and the Russians were our allies; until Germany was reunited as a single country. I was part of the US Army Occupation…

A Modern Tramp Abroad part 2 Paris.

My personal experience with the French people in the past consisted of working with the French military and dealing with bureaucrats. Therefore my stereotype of the French consisted of a bunch of lazy men wearing ladies underwear, riding bicycles while covered in French perfume, eating cheese and saying “I surrender”.

My apologies to the French People.

Like most stereotypes it did not last long after meeting and talking to a greater cross-section of the French people. For the…

A Modern Tramp Abroad Part 1.

I have just returned from a trip to Europe; France, Germany, and England. My main interest was to spend time with family and to visit some new places and some we had lived at before. As this will be a series of articles I would like to start with an overall impression, then go into details and individual experiences.

First the European Union (EU). Travel between member nations is quick and easy, very little passport or customs controls, after all taxes and duties paid in one…

Justice and GRACE

Proverbs 21:15 (NIV)

15 When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.

Is it Justice we want?

We hear on TV, stories of a protests; “what do we want?” “JUSTICE!” “when do we want it?” “NOW!”

Is it “justice,” the protesters want?

Wow! What a can of worms this can be. I thought this is a no brainer. It is simple; the protestor and the protested have equal representation under the law. Right? Well not so fast, my assumption was we all…

A study of the Globalists Dialectic -Marxist training

'The root causes of Americas loss of freedoms- A study of the Globalists dialectic

Between reading Marxist ideology, Hegelian Dialectic and classical conditioning, Pavlovs Dog, I have come to believe they are the same in many basic ways...

These systems work in a way that changes societies response to issues we would have been absolutely appalled by prior to being "trained". I believe this "tricky training" is at…

Immigration And Submarine Ballast Tanks

A comment (or two or six) on immigration which may not be cared for by readers BUT may spur some debate or who knows, maybe a post or two here on 912CQ.

  • Baby boomers are reaching retirement age.  It's simple economics that people 55+ do not spend as much in the system so "some people" believe they need to be replaced; if not by a birth…

Todays Job Numbers - Economic Chartapalooza

The new non-farm payroll job numbers announced this morning shocked everyone and I knew immediately that some in mainstream media (MSM) and blogisphere would do their level best to highlight any bad areas within the report which could be found - because you know it's Obama's evil administration who is to…

School Lunch Propaganda And Whining

Seriously folks, school lunches have always been horrible.  I chuckle as people point at Michelle Obama as if it's all her fault.  Whatever happened to common sense in the United States?  It's the SCHOOL that selects the food menu, what vendor they purchase it from and how it is prepared.  To point a finger…

Veteran’s Day Tribute: God Bless this Airline Captain (+video)

My lead flight attendant came to me and said, ‘We have an H.R. on this flight’. H.R. stands for human remains.

‘Are they military?’ I asked. ‘Yes’, she said. ‘Is there an escort?’ I asked. ‘Yes, I already assigned him a seat’.

Would you please tell him to come to the flight deck. You can board him early’, I said.

A short while later, a young army sergeant…

How to vote Democrat and eat fried chicken.

“This isn’t about Barack. It’s not about the person on the ballot — it’s about you. And for most of the people that we’re talking to, a Democratic ticket is the clear ticket that we should be voting on, regardless of who said what or did this. That shouldn’t even come into the equation." -  Michelle Obama

The “Soldiers Psalm” or the Service Man's Prayer

The folklore around this Psalm and military personnel is difficult to verify and very time consuming to authenticate.

Yet I have spoke to commanders and troops that have told me they had a copy of Psalms or at least Psalm ninety one in their seabag or rucksak while serving in the military.

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my…
