I Don’t Know?

“I don’t know” can be a very scary thing to admit to most people. You may believe that it is a sign of weakness. We’ve all heard the cliche, a guy is afraid to ask for directions so he drives in circles refusing to give in. We all know better, but fear makes us doContinue reading “I Don’t Know?”

The Journey Began Yesterday

This is for all who dared to dream but were woke by a bad fart in the night… Working for yourself is a pain in the ass. Period. There is no other way to put it. It’s hard work.

Hijacking The Joker

The first thing most Americans will protect when freedoms are threatened is our right to free speech. No one likes to be silenced. All of us want the freedom to express ourselves.
