"Briefs should be less and less about pithy code for expressing the values of a brand. They should be more about programming a brand for its own behavior in, and relationship with the world.”

Common sense and the flame of liberty still burns bright in a precious few.

ahh people like you make me sad, you ruin the name of this country, I was born in America, so no im not Mexican, not even my family is Mexican, sad part is your and your conservative friends are the least American things on earth, you support the private banks that enslave us and destroy the American dream, you put religion into government something that is not allowed according to the constitution, of course you wouldn't much about that other then the lies the conservative media feeds you, Gays are people so they deserve the same rights, including marriage, abortion should be legal, it is a woman's body and she may choose what to do with it, and you sir are the saddest thing ive seen in my life, btw immigrants built this nation, it is pathetic you dare hate on immigrants, unless your an native American, your family is one of immigrants, so if you tell a Mexican back home you should do the same, so umm start looking for a nice place in Europe, of course you wouldn't remember US history, your small brain can only take soo much, this country is the greatest to ever exist but people like you will be its destruction. I don't expect you to answer as of course you can not defend yourself and will simply run and hide, also btw im actually extremely capitalist, did I ever say I wasn't, ha you must be illiterate too! :D

“There is one and only one reason that an aspiring al-Qaeda bomber or ISIS beheader such as Elton Simpson should be walking the streets of these United States a free man: so that the FBI can follow him. We have aggressive domestic surveillance on a dozen different fronts — from the IRS to the SEC to the TSA, to say nothing of whatever it is that the spooks are really up to — but nobody could be bothered to keep an eye on a fellow known to federal authorities to be looking for a plum gig with Bin Laden, Inc. For Pete’s sake, the guy seems to have been on Twitter talking up “‪#‎texasattack‬” before the…_Texas attack._ Where was the FBI? No doubt still on the hunt for those angry Christian right-wing militia extremists who keep not attacking anything other than unlucky squirrels in rural Idaho. This is some weak stuff, feds. The only law-enforcement officials doing their jobs in this mess were the Garland locals, who exhibited courage and marksmanship.”

We need to use a weapon that works against the Terrorists we have available.  I think people like Geller are doing America a great service by drawing out the crazies.  We need her to give anti terrorist presentations in every city.  Let Islamic Terrorists show up with AK's so we can take them down.  Sort of like those sting operations they had trapping and arresting all those pedophiles and sexual deviants on "To Catch A Predator".  Sure beats having them show up at some workplace beheading innocent and helpless women.  Here in Texas we just gun them down, it's more humane.  I love, Luv, Loooove, being a Texican.   ٩(˘◡˘)۶

It's been a while since I had a beer, so I'm breaking the dry spell with Brimstone, a ryewine from DuClaw Brewing Company. It pours a deep crimson with a one-finger head that recedes to a thin film and leaves a heavy curtain of lace.

The aroma is subtle, with notes of raisins, black cherry, orange citrus, and rye spiciness. The taste is fruity and sweet, with flavors of cherry and plum mixed with grape, apple, and candied orange. There is also a strong flavor of burnt molasses, which then fades as an earthy, herbal hop finish makes an appearance in the finish alongside spicy rye. 

Mouthfeel is thick, almost syrupy, with low carbonation and some boozy heat from the 9.50% ABV. This tastes very much like a barleywine with a spicy kick of rye. Very tasty!  8/10

Many thanks to beer fairy +Michelle C for this tasty brew!

This adds a whole new meaning to the phrase “war on poverty.”

“You must unlearn what you have learned.” –Yoda
Riding a bike is just like...riding a bike, right? Once you learn how to propel yourself along on two wheels, you'll never forget how to do so, and it's always easy to jump back in the seat. But change just one skill that riding a bike involves -- the way the handlebars turn -- and everything falls apart. Below, Destin from Smarter Everyday shows that the bike riding "algorithm" our brains develop is actually quite fragile. You can't change any a...

The left is blind to the careening train wrecks that are Obama’s economic and foreign policies, yet it is obsessed with all things associated with global warming/climate change.

Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change.
Introduction
12th generation American and father of three daughters. A Nerd who has leveled up to Geek. Collector of tattoos. Lover of craft beer and top-shelf rum, bourbon, and scotch. Practitioner of Kobu Shin Ryu kenjutsu and Mugai Ryu iaihyodo (Japanese swordsmanship). I occasionally dabble in illustration and writing. According to Myers-Briggs, I'm an INTJ.

Politically-speaking, I'm a Constitutionalist who believes in individual liberty, capitalism, and the free market. I get along with folks of all political stripes so long as respect is reciprocated. 

Whatever I choose to do, whether it's work or personal, I take it very seriously. But myself... not so much.

NOTE: If you follow/circle me — and especially if you want me to circle you in return — please drop me a quick message to let me know which circle(s) you would like to join. If you have no posts, no photos, or no profile, I won't be circling you back.  

Here are some of my interests. Let me know where you and I share common ground:
  • Comics / SciFi / Geek culture
  • Craft beer aficianados
  • Politics (part conservative, part libertarian)
  • Harley-Davidson
  • Design / Advertising
  • Martial Arts (kenjutsu, iaido, aikido, jujutsu)
  • Video Games (especially Fallout & Skyrim)
  • Tattoos
  • Firearms / Second Amendment
  • Movies & Entertainment
  • Science / Technology
  • Genealogy
  • Florida Gators
