Although many liberals encourage these types of sketchy investigations (bordering on inquisition), what happens is the right end up retaliating in kind; justifying their own bad behavior from the right by pointing at the left. Déjà vu? Yes, you’ve seen this before from our illustrious leader and finger pointing expert, President Barack Obama.
As an experiment, I searched online for a modern English version of the Declaration of Independence. Then I replaced the word “king” with “president”, “colonies” with “states”, “indians” with “foreign(ers)”. Have a read and just think about it. What have we Americans allowed to happen to us over successive generations? Below are a few of the reasons the United States declared independence from a tyrannical king and fought a war that left around 50,000 Americans dead and wounded.
From a modern English version of the Declaration of Independence:
This is just my own personal take and the original article author’s opinions are not necessarily represented here.
I’m not even sure we can call it a watch. Okay, it goes on the wrist, and it happens to tell the time, but that’s about where the similarities between Apple’s just announced watch and the hand-assembled, often painstakingly finished mechanical watches we write about, and obsess over, end. I was lucky enough to be invited to Cupertino to witness the announcement of the Apple Watch firsthand, and though I do not believe it poses any threat to haute horology manufactures, I do think the Apple Watch will be a big problem for low-priced quartz watches, and even some entry-level mechanical watches. In years to come, it could pose a larger threat to higher end brands, too. The reason? Apple got more details right on their watch than the vast majority of Swiss and Asian brands do with similarly priced watches, and those details add up to a really impressive piece of design. It offers so much more functionality than other digitals it’s almost embarrassing. But it’s not perfect, by any means. Read on to hear my thoughts on the Apple Watch, from the perspective of a watch guy. Oh, and there are dozens of in-the-metal pictures, too.
A “Watch” guy’s assessment of the Apple Watch does not bode well for…traditional watch makers and digital watch makers that are NOT Apple.
Let me know when you find it!
Do deaths from CHD increase as total cholesterol increases? Hmmmm! Where is the pattern?
Do deaths from CHD increase as saturated fat consumption increases? I don’t see it! How do we draw the straight line correlation?
It’s official: 1 out of every 2 Americans has a chronic health condition. Additionally, twenty-five percent have more than one chronic condition…researchers note that chronic diseases have, in fact, overtaken the human health scene, with noncommunicable conditions causing two-thirds of global deaths.
A member of the English Aristocracy born in the 1500’s could reasonably expect to live to about 71 years of age*. While they lived a privileged life for the times, people today live with privileges that far exceed those to which the medieval aristocrats had access.
Today, the average U.S. male life expectancy at birth is about 75 years of age.**
That is essentially ZERO advancement in 500 years despite all the advancements in antibiotics and internal medicine. We are doing something seriously wrong! It is increasingly becoming more clear that we have VASTLY UNDERESTIMATED the importance that the quality and type of food has on our whole life.

This is my GORUCK GR1 packed and ready for a week long road trip. This is the only bag I need.
I pack light. Always. I hate the very idea of carrying more than I absolutely need. This is as true in my day-to-day carry as it is on a long road trip. The secret, I have found, is to work to ensure that the things I would pack for myself for a three day journey are the same as I would pack for a thirty day journey.
The secret is to pack things that I can wash and dry quickly (overnight). As well, what you want is not only clothes that can wash and dry fast but also those with complementary colors that you can mix and match. Having, say three shirts, three bottoms, and their corresponding accessories (socks, underwear, etc.) can give you enough combination choices that few will ever notice you are wearing the same small supply.
Now, I’m not going to bore you with brands and links about what I have. Because that does not matter. There are tons of great brands that make this stuff, many of which have been covered here before (Patagonia, Ex Officio, Travelsmith, etc.). What matters is the elements as described above. What I can tell you is the basic outline of what I have packed in here:
- Three button down shirts.
- Three t-hirts.
- Two pairs of shorts and one pair of long pants.
- Three pairs of socks.
- Three pairs of underwear.
- Swim trunks.
- Self packable wind/rain jacket.
- Super absorbent pack towel (for hyper drying wet clothes).
- GR Tac hat.
- Kit bag.
- MacBook Air (11 inch).
- iPad mini.
- Small bag with misc. electronic cables and dongles.
- Notebook and pens.
As you can see, there is a lot packed into that bag, but not too much. Only just what I need. Everythng is designed to be light and pack small. And this could keep me for as long as I want. Three days or thirty, no matter.
This is just to say that having the right gear matters and you can get a whole lot of mileage out of very little carry. I do whenever I travel and have long been convinced it is the only way to go.

So you’re well aware of solar eclipses, where our own moon covers the sun, but did you know it can happen with Venus as well? The image above was captured in last year’s rare occurrence, and if you want to see it again, prepare to live until 2117.
