It's Been A While

Well, you know where they say the good-intentions-paved road leads. As I mentioned before, life is too busy these days for me to maintain this blog. I emailed the group in hopes of finding a replacement. While I received a number of responses it seems that no one was interested in taking on the whole thing. If that's changed and someone is interested now please let me know. I'll check my email when I can and be in touch.

Okay...Gather Round...First Rank Take a Knee

I stand here before you to admit that I've dropped the ball on the Homespun Symposium "Topic of the Week" and I'm sorry for it. Life got a little involved for us at the Major Household...and unfortunately I chose to let that part of my life go. Now that things have slowed down a bit, I have no reason not to dredge it back up if there's enough interest...

Soooo...without further ado, I'd like to offer up the following for your consideration:

How do you feel about the recent legislation about making English the official language of the United States of America? (Note: I understand it's not a done deal...)

Please feel free to email me at: majordad1984 - at - gmail - dot - com with your responses. I'd like to be able to have all links to your postings NLT close of business on Friday. Each week I'll post a new topic NLT Sunday evening.

See you on the high ground!

It's Quiet...

...too quiet.

I just wanted to let everyone know that Homespun Bloggers has been on an extended hiatus and will resume presently.

The short story is that I, your humble servant, can no longer live but to serve. Life has gotten far too busy and will not slow down, well, ever.

So, whether you're a current member faithfully submitting Best Of posts or a blogger looking to join our ranks, please be patient and bear with us while we get back on our feet.

The Superficial is becoming crap

I used to like The Superficial because it not only gave me some common ground in our celebrity obsessed world (being a no TV and very few movies kinda guy) and because it was damn funny, i.e...


Flying Cow Leaves Two Police Cars in Flames

A cow falls out of the back of a cattle trailer near Seguin, Texas. One officer is nearly hit by a speeding truck with 2 illegal immigrants inside. While looking for the illegals, several cops parked their cars on dry grass, which ignited and burned up the cars.


Harold Hatley

Mr. Hatley was definitely a sheepdog:

According to police, a surveillance video showed Harold Hatley, 73, leaving his seat at the counter and getting in the line of fire, which enabled others to flee.
Stop The ACLU

The ACLU Vs. American Sovereignty

Currently the ACLU are appealing to the U.N. Human Rights Committee with their cries of how evil the United States Government is.

Collecting My Thoughts

2227 The daughter-in-law--taking applications

You've seen the reality show about the bachelor choosing a wife. Why couldn't there be a show called "The daughter-in-law?" I've thought of throwing a big party and inviting all the single women I know to meet my son--he'd be the only guy at the party (unfortunately, most are in their 50s and 60s, and one in her 80s). He has excellent manners and I'm sure would make them all feel special, but would probably not speak to me for awhile.

Once More Into the Breach

I'm Only Eating This Chocolate for Medicinal Purposes

Who says food that is good for you has to taste bad?


Immigration or Conquest, Absorption or Surrender?

When a People immigrates to your country and demands you
accommodate their lifestyle and principles by abandoning your own, it's no
longer called immigration, it's called conquest. [...]

However, [the media] having caved once, no one should really be
surprised when next year there are whole new sets of protest placards printed
up making new and evermore reasonable claims of ownership on the
definition of more of the West's essential freedoms: [...]


Mark Wilson

Take a moment from your busy Fat Tuesday to remember the brave men who put their lives on the line in trying to stop David Arroyo from killing his son and wife. While many law enforcement officers made a good account of themselves that day (in particular Smith County Sheriff's Deputy Sherman Dollison, although there were many others), one man stands out because he was a civilian who just happened to be a sheepdog who moved to the sound of the guns:

Little Bit Tired, Little Bit Worn

Islamic Terror Pays dividends In Germany

Germany, weather they know it or not, has become a victim of black-mail.

Much of Islam has managed to turn itself into a victim while at the same time perpetrating perpetual acts of violence all across the globe.

Successfully having become both the offended and the offender at the same time.

Conservative Cat

Laura Talks to Jim Glassman About the Ports

Today on Laura Ingraham's show she had a long discussion with Jim Glassman about this column in which he said some pretty nasty things about people who oppose the sale of six U.S. ports to Dubai of the United Arab Emirates. Despite Laura's initial anger, the conversation ended on a fairly friendly note.


Support Denmark

Like I said, I think it's rather rude to insult one's religion. Over the past few weeks (or however long this crap has been going on) I've been telling myself that I have not posted the cartoons for this very reason. However, as I've given the issue more thought it has occurred to me that I may very well be using politeness as a weak excuse. The thing that really brought this to mind was seeing this shirt (which I mentioned previously). I went through the thought process of I-want-one --> No-that-would-be-rude-to-innocent-Muslims --> Am-I-really-just-afraid-to-wear-it? So, while I may not spend the $19 to buy the shirt I will post the cartoons here because I think the principle of free speech, in this specific case*, trumps that of minding my P's and Q's. As things stand, if you are Muslim and offended by what follows please feel free to let me know that you're angry. But please include a statement that indicates that while you disagree with what I say you would be will to defend to the death my right to say it (and remember that the 'West' is not the first to produce such images).
