How will the future look back on our time? Will we be the people who recognized the times? Will we be people who realized the slow disintegration of our rights and freedoms that then moved to a tsunami of laws and government involvement in every aspect of our lives from dictating which milk we can drink to if we can harvest the water off our own roof? Or, will we be the people who as long as our AC was pumping cold air and McDonald’s was serving up Big Macs that we were content with sitting in front of the [...]
“Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.” John Adams
David Hackett Fischer’s best-seller Paul Revere’s Ride.
On Sunday, June 22, 2014, Richard, from The Apple Seed Project, presented at my church. He shared about the days leading up to and the significance of April 19, 1775.

But I have noticed that many people don’t read for comprehension anymore. They scan, read the headlines, comment, [...]
“What people do, quite naturally, is if it’s work, they try to figure out how to do less. And if it’s art, we try to figure out how to do more.” – Seth Godin
Seth Godin is one of my favorite authors. I haven’t read all his books, but I do recommend Linchpin. Although Linchpin isn’t free, he offers many of his books free (the inspiration for offering TPR and Education After the Collapse for free).
I recently ran across one of his Squidoo pages entitled “Stop Stealing Dreams.” The page is dedicated to offer his free resource ebook, “Stop [...]
