About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Safety Lesson - Preventing House Fires

Thanks to the Historian for passing along this link of a great safety lesson that can prevent many house fires.  When I first received the message a few days ago it had hundreds of thousands of views less than it does now so the internet is working constructively on this one.
The link shows how the improper storage of new or used batteries can cause a house fire when the wrong conditions come together.  The man in the video would not have had his house catch fire if he had taped the terminals of his smoke detector batteries with electrical tape before discarding them.
