This is a site for me. If you stumbled across it fine. Enjoy looking around. Maybe youâ€™ll learn something that will adjust your world view from that of the rest of the lemmings on the left and right.
The articles posted here are either monologues or email exchanges on topics I find interesting. Because the writing is generaly â€œstream of consciencesâ€ there are probably spelling and grammer errors in every paragraph (or even sentence!). I donâ€™t care – this site is for me.

I like to make my own beef jerky and experiment with various flavor combinations. Hands down the favorite flavor thus far is my “Sweet & Salty”
Many of these recipes I came up with while on a PSMF diet and thus the reason for the artificial sweeteners. You could of course use real sugars instead.
The beef I like to use cane be found at your larger Mexican Food markets. It is called Beef Cecina which generally is a thin cut from the eye of round. Foudn this description on line describing how to obtain this cut.
- Trim the top, bottom, and ends off the meat so you are left with a cube shape.
- You will need a very sharp knife for this. Lay the meat with the grain running crosswise in front of you.
- Slice at one end, parallel to the cutting board and about ? inch below the top.
- Stop 1/8 inch before you reach the end. Do not cut right through.
- Turn the meat 180 degrees, open the meat at the “flap” and cut again, 1/8 inch under the first cut.
- Repeat this, opening the meat out each time, until you end up with one long, concertina-like, 1/8 inch thick piece of meat.”
We love a good fish taco so I decided to come up with my own take on this classic.
Restaurant fish tacos are either grilled or breaded and their breading is too often on the heavy handed side (it’s not Fish and Chips for crying out loud) so I went with a panko covering to give the crispiness we like from the fried preparation while still getting more of the lightness that a grilled piece gives you.
Most Turkey Burgers might as well be dried up pieces of crappy cardboard for all the juiciness and flavor they have. These burgers are anything but. Filled with flavor and the juice will be dripping down your arm.
These burgers are especially tasty served in a lettuce wrap topped with some jalapeno cheddar cheese, a tomato slice and slivers of avocado
- Shredded Pork Green Chilie Enchiladas
- Very moist and flavorful pork is the foundation for these enchiladas
- 4 - 5 lb Bone-in Pork Roast
- 16 oz Chicken Stock
- 2 Tb Salt
- 2 Tb Black Pepper
- 2 Tb Onion Powder
- 2 Tb Garlic Powder
- 4 Tb Chili Powder
- 2 tsp Red Chili Flakes
- 4 Jalapeno Fresh, seeded and cut into a large dice
- 5 Hatch Green Chlilies Fresh, roasted, peeled, seeded and cut into large dice
- 25 Corn Tortillas lightly fried in oil to soften them
- 2 16 oz Can Green Enchilada Sauce
- Mexican Blend Cheese
- Place the pork roast in a slow cooker and add the spices and jalapeno (Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Chili Powder, and red pepper flake) and pour the chicken stock over the top. Cook on low for 24 hours
- The pork will fall apart as you are removing it from the slow cooker to a large mixing bowl. Discard the bone and any under rendered fat remaining.
- Add the diced Hatch Chilies and 2/3 of one of the cans of Enchilada sauce to the Shredded Pork. Add additional Salt and Pepper to taste.
- Place a couple heaping tablespoons of the pork mixture onto a Corn Tortilla and place into your roasting pan/casserole pan in an alternating patten making sure to tightly pack them in.
- Drizzle the remaining green chile sauce over the top of the tortilla rolls and cover with a thin layer of cheese
- Gently pour the second 16 oz can of green chile sauce over the top and place a little thicker layer of cheese over the top.
- Bake at 350 for 45 minutes if cooking right away or for 1 hour if made ahead of time and refrigerated first
Can also use cooked chicken in place of the pork

Some food for thought when a knee-jerk Lib castigates either Republicans or Conservatives for tax laws that favor the “Rich”…
Let’s see… The branch of Government that writes the tax laws is Congress. Looking back over the decades since 1952 which party has controlled Congress? Hmmmm…
Over those 67 years the Republicans controlled both Houses only 12 years. However, for 6 of those years they did so with a Democrat as President that had to either sign that legislation into law or veto it. That means the Republicans had control of both the Legislative and Executive Branches of Government for all of 9% of the time.
Over those 67 years the Democrats controlled both Houses 38 years and for 24% of the time the Democrats controlled both the Legislative and the Executive.
The other 11 years saw a split control of Congress with the Democrats controlling the House for 6 of those 11 years. Care to guess which House of Congress is tasked by the Constitution with writing the Tax laws?
So… Since 1952 The Republicans have controlled the Tax writing House of Congress for only 17 years. The Democrats have controlled the Tax writing House of Congress for 75% of the time.
So please tell me again which Party is “all about wealth redistribution, sucking as much money out of the pockets of the working class before they completely destroy it and stuffing it into their own.”
