Constitutional Amendments

There are a few constitutional amendments that should be repealed because they are bad and they take away the original intent of the constitution. The 17th amendment is one that should be repealed. The 17th amendment states that you can vote for the senators in your state. Prior to that you only voted for the House members, and the state Legislators appointed the Senators. That was a natural check and balance for term limits. The senators were supposed to represent the states and the will of the states an the House of representatives was supposed to represent the people and the will of the people. If the senators were not doing their job, the legislators could recall them and appoint new ones. The people were never supposed to directly appoint the senators.

The other one that should be repealed is the 16th amendment, this is the one that made the lovely income tax. Prior to the 16th amendment the states paid "taxes" if you will to the federal government based upon the census, the more people they more they paid and this is how the federal government operated. The people were never intended to pay for the federal government twice or even more than they currently do.

The 12th amendment is an amendment that exists, but is never followed and should be. Look that one up. According to that amendment the President is never supposed to pick their running mate. The vice president is supposed to be voted upon just like the president is, but this was no longer followed due to FDR.

Remote application in a small network

I have a friend who asked me how it would be possible to have an application that they use accessible to their other computer inside of their house. The application that they need is in their shop, but they want to be able to do some of the grunt work inside of their house, which is understandable.

My suggestions were: 1. Buy a new computer or find a computer that you really do not use or even a used one on craigslist. Install the application that you need on that computer, and then install some free remote control applications (you can use Windows RDP if the host computer is running a professional version of Windows 7) and have this computer running all the time. You can then remote into this computer and do your work.

2. Install a VMWare on any of your computers and have it always running, and configure the VMWare to have a bridged connection so it is accessible to your network. Install Windows and your application on this VMWare instance and then you can RDP into this Widnows instance and use your application.

3. Install your application on a laptop and take it with you.

I am sure that there are a few other options, but these were the one that readily came off my head.

Truthful words

Samuel Adams once said "No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders."

Read those words and think to where we are at in this quote. Most are sinking under their own weight, and this country is also.

How to make your own dishwasher detergent.

What I used to make my own dishwasher detergent is Ingredients Used : Borax
Super Washing Soda
Citric Acid (I got this at Wal-Mart for $2.97 a container for 7 ounces, Amazon $7.00 for 1 LB)
Kosher Salt

Option to use 7th Generation Dishwasher Detergent or whatever detergent you like to use

Take 1 cup of Super Washing Soda, 1 cup Borax, 1/2 cup kosher salt & 1/2 cup of citric acid. Mix together and you can use that for the dishwasher detergent. I use 1/8 cup of detergent per load in my dishwasher (Bosch)

I had found that after a few loads the dishes were not getting clean and had some weird debris on them. I had read to use lemon kool-aid in the mix which I tried and really did not notice much of a difference. I tried 1 packet all the way up to 8 packets per batch, and the dishes came out the same.

What I did try that worked, was to take the 3 cups of dishwasher detergent that I made, and then mix in 3 cups of the dishwasher detergent that I had previously been using, which is 7th generation. That gave me a total of 6 cups of dishwasher detergent and it seemed to clean the best (even better than using 7th generation by itself)

Cost Per Load:

I use 1/8 cup per load in my dishwasher (Bosch) Without the 7th Generation it comes out to be 12 cents per load (3 cups total) With the 7th Generation it comes out to be 10 cents per load (6 cups total)

Make your own turkey stock / broth

This only needs a few ingredients to make, and the nice thing is that you control what goes into it.
Basically just need 

This works great for Thanksgiving or when you want to have some turkey meat in the house.
All that you need to do is take the turkey and place it into the crock pot, add the amount of vegetables that you want to add to it (for flavoring), then cook it on low for 10 hours (longer if the turkey is still frozen, but I highly suggest thawing the turkey first).

how to make a bacon wrapped, keto friendly, gluten free meatloaf.


The calorie count and the fat count can differ based upon the meat and the amount of bacon that you use. The grease that is in the bottom of the loaf pancan be saved and used to different purposes. It can be used as cooking grease, it can be used to flavor biscuits, flavor sausage gravy or other purposes.

What is not to love about a meatloaf that is not only low carb, gluten free but also keto friendly?



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl with an handheld mixer, combine the first 12 ingredients. Mix on low until well combined. Take a regular size loaf pan or a bread loaf pan (same thing), and lay a few slices of bacon on the bottom of the pan to make a nice bottom. (I have found that lining the bottom of the pan with parchment paper makes taking the meatloaf out of the pan extremely easy!) Take the bacon and line the sides of the loaf pan so that you have a good wrapper for the meat loaf then using a metal spoon scoop the meat mixture from the bowl into the loaf pan.
Cook in the oven for 90 minutes, or until a meat thermometer shows 180-190.
Remove from the oven, let stand for about 5 minutes to let cool. You can also take this time to drain the bacon grease from the meatloaf pan and put it into a jar or something.
Bacon grease.

I have heard of some people leaving out 1/2 lb of meat and filling it with 8 or so ounces of cheese, such as cheddar cheese.
