A former Coastie is coming over soon to do our house blessing for Epiphany.

They do some pretty intense assignments, depending on location. Drug interdiction is no joke.

Small service, I wonder if I know him.

He was ordained in 2004, so he started seminary in 1997. I'm not sure when he left the USCG, but the latest he could have been in was 1997. Were you in, then?

What everyone here, but me ;D, is overlooking is the bestest place evvuh: Kentucky!
  I used to live in Kentucky.  Nice State.  Unfortunately they are one of the worst States when it comes to public pension funding. They group with Illinois and New Jersey.   When that time bomb blows, expect huge cuts to road repair and much higher taxes.  Just google "Kentucky Pension Crisis".

Tennessee is much better off.  Well funded pensions and no State Income Tax.  Don't know about the Trad scene there, but that's a great State (land of my birth). 

On Fracking, total lie.  We've fracked probably 100,000 wells since "the scare".  I actually wrote an article on my blog pointing out that the libtards shot themselves in the foot.  In every Frack article they ALWAYS include words (sand, water, and CHEMICALS) to scare people.  We'll ignore the fact that the chemicals are the same thing as what you find in hair conditioner.  Anyhow I asked and answered the simple question, "What is the sand for?".  Answer:  to hold the fractures open.  Yes, the fractures are the width of a grain of sand.  So stack 10 Empire State buildings on top of each other.  The surface is at the top of that stack.  Down at the bottom, run a 5" pipe.  If you are lucky, extending 80 feet out from that pipe is a fractured zone with fractures the size of sand particles.  The scare was complete BS.

Oh, and two weeks later a newspaper posted an article where they changed the scare cocktail: "GRAVEL, water, and chemicals".  Yeah, try running gravel through a pump, it's hard enough pumping a sand slurry.

By the way, I find it hard to believe a newspaper reads my tiny blog.  I'm guessing one of my readers read my article and pointed it out in a comments section somewhere.  But it really did happen about 2 weeks after I wrote my article.

He’s got a website and podcast. If he sold merch I’d probably be in for a “The end is nigh, Faggots” coffee cup.

ETA: Also, a spill proof spitter with "God's Wrath Is Glorious" would definitely be on the shopping list too.

Maybe a beer coozie that says, "Subsidiarity: So easy even a self-absorbed promethean neo-Pelagian can do it"

Yeah, first page of my world famous book has the bonus URL.  I've been inactive for the past few months due to work and my new project.  I've been going easy on here too, but I needed a break.

  I need to add a swag page.  I like the coffee cup.  I know one Brit dude who would buy one.

No I joined in '05. Still, cool that he found his vocation!

Tennessee has fire ants. Therefore I will ignore everything good that you said about Tennessee.

  Are you sure?  I imagine around the Memphis area you'd find them, but I find that hard to believe around Knoxville.  The winters are too cold for them.  Maybe I'm wrong.  Note if  the northern sections don't have fire ants, you still have the problem of finding a Trad chapel.

The only appropriate beer for a Distributism coozie would taste like mule piss and 40 unfarmed acres

I'm actually not entirely sure, it was really just a just. I would wager at least the southern portion does. Maybe up to Nashville? I was affraid I'd have to deal with them if I get to go to Ft. Campbell, which is on the border of KY and TN.

If they ain't there now they probably will be in another generation.

Wrong. Bud Light and other Anheiser Busch products are a monolithic and globalist bully that crowds out the small, independent producer. Look to our own Belgium Brewing in CO. A clear and successful example of a Distributist model. James even unwittingly lauded another Distributive benefit in Chile's universal retirement plan. Why are you so against private property, no income tax, no socialized medicine, small family business, employee owned companies, living wages for workers, etc.? This is akin to socialism? The government owns nothing and expects nothing from a man's labor, but only taxes reasonably through consumption, i.e. sales taxes. It creates the economic environment through legislation creating the widest opportunity for ownership within cultural milieus. Look at the German system. It was so damn successful the mercantilists and usurers(incipient globalists and late stage capitalists) annihilated Fritz twice. Now he is slowly being shorn from the inside via sexual deprivation and a "refugee" phenomenon.

Caveat per conventionem: I do not subscribe to Dr. Jones' belief that labor is the intrinsic mean to value. But his analysis here on two competing cultural systems via economics is an absolute gem of insight into what brought on the world wars and who would control the economic status quo in the world.

They can't survive any kind of prolonged freeze. A couple of days below freezing and they are toast.   I seriously doubt that they can survive on the Kentucky / Tennessee border.

If you aren't from there you likely won't survived on that border.
