When purchasing canned whipped cream requires a person to be 21 years of age or older, it's time to reassess our society as a whole.

What happened to Yard Darts? What happened to letting kids play outdoors all day and get dirty and scraped up from climbing trees? Why are we so afraid to let kids get into fist fights at school? Why can’t people be allowed to learn from experience?

What is the next step? Bubble wrapping everyone and limiting what they see and hear? Oh wait, I think that is already underway.

The time has come to say enough is enough. No person should need to ask for permission to buy a 32 ounce drink or to buy a can of whipped cream.

The United States of America was not founded on “asking permission” it was founded to protect its citizens from government overreach.

FREEDOM is our foundation, and “we the people” are allowing our freedoms to be stripped away at an alarming rate. Wake up people, we are one step away from controlled servitude.

Don’t believe me? A new training video has come to light from the CISA (Cybersecurity and infrastructure Security Agency) which is a part of Homeland Security, that pushes the idea of family members turning in other family members who share incorrect (or not approved) information about Covid-19 on social media. Concerned yet? You should be.

Did you know that North Carolina is filled with odd seasons? First, we have black fly season (spring) followed by mosquito season (that now lasts all year) followed by butterfly, dragonfly and giant spiders (garden/orb weaving/Argiope) and tiny baby lizards (anoles). Tiny ants, also known as piss ants or sugar ants, like to invade late summer and make you crazy. We are now also having a large flying spider season (late summer). Everyone’s favorite year-round resident is the household Palmetto bug – yes it flies and no, they are not German cockroaches. Once you learn to name them and expect them, they really aren’t so bad. Snakes, mice and rats like to wait until you least expect them to show off their beauty – keeps your heart pumping! Fire ants, which originated in South America, live in giant mounds in the middle of your yard (watch out they bite!) and soon enough the ultra-terrifying python invasion may be headed our way. That is a great big no!

Ruger has come out with a new rifle called the Ruger LC Carbine. This lightweight rifle will be chambered in 5.7 x 28 and will take the same magazines as the Ruger 57 pistol. The price will be around $ 929.95.

Ready for hurricane season? You need to be. First, remember to take pictures of all your firearms and email them to yourself. Make sure if you evacuate that you take your firearms with you in a secured fashion. If you cannot, find a place out of harm's way, that might be able to safely store them for you.

Remember knowledge is power, Freedom is not negotiable and no one wants Pythons in North Carolina!
