Tinfoil Hat Zone - How to Make One and Why

Today's Top News

Get out those tinfoil hats boys and girls.  Now I know some of my friends are a bit off and extra colorful but they aren't that far out so I was surprised to see this article posted about a national coup d'etat rumored for sometime in late summer or early fall.  You know the left use to say the same thing about W. 

But just in case you think this may happen, right after you stock up on the ammo, you can go here to learn how to construct your very own tinfoil hat.

To find out even more about tinfoil hats you can always visit the Urban Dictionary which is one of my favorite sites.

Today's Dose of Wisdom

I learned today that The Star Spangled Banner had more that the first part to it.  I'm amazed and embarrassed.  So, I call my mom and tell her and she says, "Ok, you didn't know that?" Well what does that tell her about her parenting.  What kind of American was she bringing me up to be anyways.  Just in case you are "out there" like me and didn't know it below are the lyrics and a video of some guy singing the other part, you know that part I didn't know.  He did a good job too!

O! say can you see by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Going to church doesn't make you a christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
