Historical European Martial Arts

I have always been fascinated by swordplay. Most of you who know me, know that I am a traditionalist by nature. It wasn't something I decided rationally. More, I was a product of my environment and my upbringing. Naturally as a child, while the neighbors were playing cops and robbers or cowboys and Indians, I was playing Robin Hood and Peter Pan. While folks were playing 007: Goldeneye on their Nintendo 64's, I was trying to track down the original Nintendo version of Final Fantasy 1.

As I grew to become more cogent and grounded in reality, I shed a lot of the escapism that I used to safeguard myself from the conditions of a traumatic childhood. I became someone who was fully grounded in reality with a passion for the here and now; as opposed to someone with an irrational desire to live in the past, ignoring those frightful aspects that progress has shielded us from having to face.

Been having that feeling again.

Once eyes open always be,
Sleep exists no more for me,
Matters not bargain or plea,
Phantom world i'll always see,

For some reason I just felt like I needed to write these words down. Don't really know why I was compelled to share.

(I'm not a poet -just thought I would throw that out there)

Sheriff David Clarke Beats Bloomberg's Money, Defeats Anti-Gun Opponent

This percentage is slightly less than that with which Clarke won in 2000 -- when he beat Moews by six points -- but the August 12 victory comes after Michael Bloomberg dumped $150,000 into the race against Clarke.

Other liberal groups, like the Greater Wisconsin Committee, funneled approximately $400,000 into the race against Clarke.

Congratulations to Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke!

Clarke 26954 53.14% Moews 23771 46.86% with 227 precincts reporting

Some Milwaukee Republicans are attempting Tuesday to vote in their party's primary races while also writing in the name of Democratic Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., elections officials said.

"There are cases where it's happened," Milwaukee Election Commission director Neil Albrecht said.

Under Wisconsin law, a voter can choose to participate in either the Democratic or Republican primaries, but can't do both on the same ballot.

Setting the Religious Right right on Israel/Gaza!

Recently, I have been going back and forth on Facebook with a friend in Wisconsin, whose family we used attend church with for several years; over the Israel/Gaza situation.

Why can't we just be left alone?

If we created a colony our int the middle of the ocean, on a self sustaining barge system, would we be left alone?

Minarchist/Anarchists please keep that debate out of this discussion.

So my question is, why, no matter where people are in the world, so long as they are producing more resources than they need to sustain themselves, do other people want to assert their demand for those resources?

Is it because we are susceptible to it? Is it because it really is necessary?

A precious metal loss with a silver lining

A Wisconsin man's rare coin collection went missing after consigning it with a company to be appraised and eventually auctioned. Of course that is unfortunate and there is always uncertainty when seeking justice through the courts. The 'silver lining' in the story though comes from what the man was planning to do with the proceeds from auction.

The collector said he planned to sell the coins at auction and use the funds to buy a SWAT vehicle for the Wisconsin police department where his son works.

Alcoholism and Statism (Part 1)

Hi I am Séamusín, and I am an alcoholic.

I will share at some point, my story about coming to terms with my alcoholism. What I would like to share right now is what the disease of alcoholism, and how it can be treated.

Alcoholism really is a disease

I know, I know, I didn't believe it either. You see, when you introduce will power into the equation, we tend to have alot of trouble. We don't see behaviors as diseases. We don't see making the wrong decisions as a medical problem.

WI Governor Scott Walker under investigation for criminal fundraising activities

Prosecutors claim Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was at the center of a plan to illegally coordinate fundraising with an array of outside conservative groups to help him and several Republican senators survive a 2012 recall election, newly released records show.

In the documents unsealed Thursday, prosecutors from five Wisconsin counties allege an effort by Walker and top aides to circumvent state law and raise money and plan spending by a dozen outside groups during the election.

The prosecutors' filings include a quote from an e-mail in which Walker tells Republican strategist Karl Rove that a top campaign aide, R.J. Johnson, was leading the coordination effort and praises Johnson's work.

Ever notice how glitchy the future its?

I take great solace in the fact that the smartest of consumer devices in this the year of our smartphone 2014 still has trouble with the word hibbidydibbidy.

You may notice that this post names the NFL. This is my device's spellcheck of the letters NHL. Isn't that funny? Isn't that wonderfully glitchy?

Oh, and if I turn my Samsung s4 counterclockwise and back it does thisthisthisthisthisthis. Plus, it doesn't seem to know the word 'is,' though it it learning.
