The Lonely Goatherd Blog And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats - Matthew 25:32
Up to the minute notes on the current state of free thinking and free living: Kentucky moonshine - original analysis and reporting from MoreThings, and all round pop culture museum of sight and sound - photo galleries, mp3 and video downloads.

I wouldn't want to ask people to just give me money cause they like my website, but do please take a quick look at Barger's Boutique. You might find yourself a little something-something for 2 or 3 bucks that you just can't resist! Any of the round images you find around MoreThings will get you to an Amazon page to buy my stuff and help ol' Al keep the lights on.
To explicitly state the obvious, these external links go to interesting and provocative websites, but they speak for themselves. I don't necessarily agree with anything they say - especially that no-goodnik Richard Marcus.

The immortal Granny Clampett Irene Ryan was born 10-17-1902. She would have been 100 years old today. We sure need her now.
Daisy Mae Moses struck a chord with many millions of country folk. They saw reflections of classic ideas of their strong granny women who raised the families and kept everything on track.
We need more of them. If there were more hardcore granny folk like this on duty, you wouldn't have half the nonsense that's going on in the world. You wouldn't have idiot kids shooting up schools, that's for sure. She'd have brought them up better than that. She sure wouldn't be bringing them up to whine and pitch and bitch every time they didn't get their way.
Also, Granny Clampett could handle the likes of some punk like Saddam Hussein. Usually, Jed would haul her off before she killed someone. This one, he'd probably just let her have at.
