We’ll let you know… At present time, writings on many topics from the Editor and Publisher of the Metropolis Café – but stay tuned for changes. We’ll see you at Sundown.

Merely the Caretaker…

It was… maybe 46 years ago – 1972…

We had been married for about two years, and I was a sales representative at a Volkswagen dealership in Evanston, Illinois. The owners name was Herman Eberhardt. Older buildings, and the dealership was split, with the body and paint shop on the (appropriately) South side of the lot – and that is where the treasure was to be found…

I have told my story many times in the past, but will share the basis of it once more, so that you will understand the (personal) significance of my discovery. Continue reading

17 Years and Counting ~ On Reflection

I’ll not take the time this day to dissect and discuss all of the nuances and stories about what happened September 11, 2001. I know where I was and what I was doing – as most people do.

There are many questions and much evidence out there to raise questions about the real story behind the tragedy… and THAT is my point – no matter how you address the issue – it was a tragedy. People lost their lives and maybe in some respects – we lost our country.

But THIS is how I choose to honor that day today…

I’ll see you at Sundown,

 

 

What the Hell Happened to America?

Gird up your loins…

It is the study of history that teaches us to hope.” ~ Robert Edward Lee

This equestrian statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee was removed from downtown Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

It is Monday night (Labor Day 2018) and the first time I have been away from the home/office since Friday night. Much has been accomplished relating to website updates and the continued merging of several aspects of the ultimate goal, but some things have happened that I have become aware of – other events which I have been following.

Let me provide you with some background for the purpose of this post…

This first part of our story began on July 11th of this year when I had finally reached the end of my rope with all of the hatred and anger in this nation, so much of which has been stirred up by the so-called ‘media.’ I had made a decision to begin shutting down many of my efforts – efforts which I had launched seven weeks before 9/11.

First came September 11, 2001, and then…

Victory!: It’s a Good Day to Die

“In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man and brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot.” ~ Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)

If the Heavenly Father should choose to call me home this day, no one can say that I haven’t been involved with the fight. And on this day, we have come out the victor in a major battle with the United States of America, Inc., for by this hour on Thursday night, the United States Senate voted in favor of Senate Bill (SB) 2554, commonly known as Arming Pilots Against Terrorism and Cabin Defense Act of 2002.

Three days after the attacks of September 11th, 2001 Continue reading

A Letter to Liberal America

September 6, 2009 ~ The following is adapted from a comment, which I posted early on the 5th of September, in response to several comments from readers, who spoke out against our stand against Chairman Obama’s indoctrination of the school children of America, scheduled for September 8, 2009. Comments were left on the column entitled, Chairman Obama to Speak to Students of America (K-12) (which is no longer available for viewing).

In addition, my wife and I received an email from a friend in Flagstaff, Arizona – a retired liberal teacher and die-hard Democrat. We are not sure whether her letter was submitted to the local bird-cage liner, which passes for a newspaper, or if it was submitted to someone with the Flagstaff Public School District, itself. Her letter follows this brief foreword. (Ed.) Continue reading
