All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

    How's it going, man? Haven't seen anything new except the BJW queue, and that appears to have dried up, too.

    Hope all is well....

      I've kind of been wondering the same thing. I hope his health or employment didn't take a turn.

      The positive side of me is going to continue thinking that he is on vacation with his family.

    Blogger has blocked my access since July 21st.

    They refuse to send me a access link to my res ipsa account so I can reset my password. So far no attempts to get them to look at my account have reached a real person. I keep trying.

    I'd be blogging if I could.

    1. WaterBoy1:21 PM

      If all else fails, you could create a new account and blog, post a link here to the new one, and carry on as normal.

      Unless Blogger has a dead man's date, this blog will continue to exist as an archive to which you can refer back.

    Hi Res!!! Sounds to me like somebody is in censor mode at Blogger. They won't admit it of course but I would bet that somebody of the snowflake persuasion doesn't like Christians.

    That sounds like a good solution WaterBoy if Blogger lets it happen.

    I've been thinking about doing what WB mentioned. If I do I may consider using Word Press or something else.

    I've got an interview on Friday. If it pans out I'll be moving, so getting the blog going will have to take a back seat to that.

    1. WaterBoy1:20 PM

      Absolutely, as it should. Best of luck with the interview!

    I am happily working at his new job, with a new fancy title, doing interesting work for people who appreciate it. I'm also living in a tiny apartment with no internet and going home on the weekend to visit the family. The (I hope) final sentencing hearing will be this Thursday. As soon as I get internet back on a regular basis I will look into starting a new blog.

    1. WaterBoy10:55 AM

      Good news, man. So glad that things are working out for you, on at least some fronts.

      If there's a public library where your tiny apartment is located, they typically have free Internet access. There's also a host of free Wi-Fi hotspots around, but beware the spoofed ones who are looking to siphon your account details.

  6. Res -- Glad to hear you've got things in the works. Good luck on the new job, you've been needing one for a while.

  7. Hope you're doing well.

    Merry Christmas my friends.

      Merry Christmas to you, as well. Hope all is going well....

  10. Merry Christmas, man. Keep us updated on things.

    Res Ipsa, have you seen this news about Magpul?

    This is the company that left Colorado after our dunderhead legislature and Governor signed passed the law that limited new magazine capacity to 15 or fewer. Magpul said if they can no longer sell their products in the state they are made, they'll just move production to another state that will, instead. Wyoming won, and now the company just inked a huge contract to provide magazines to the USMC, with all the new jobs that come with it.

    Ever consider a career in manufacturing?

  12. Res Ipsa12:24 PM

    I knew about the MagPul story. I hope they do well with the contract. I have thought about manufacturing. If I had some extra capital I have a line on some good CNC equip and a possible class III contract.

  13. Happy New Year Res.
