S.E.M., Vol. 1, No. 7
Federalist 69 - by Alexander Hamilton. 1. What are the chief characters in regards to the President as outlined in the proposed Constitution? 2. Why does Hamilton believe the term of office for a President should be longer than three years? 3. What was the term of office for the king of England and what, in your opinion, is the potential for abuse in such a term? Would the term of office of the king of England present any advantages - in the Founders experience and in your opinion - over over the new American system?

Yet another open letter to locksmiths

Yet another open letter to locksmiths

BY T.F. STERN I’m directing this to the newly appointed member of the Texas Department of Public Safety/Private Security Bureau (DPS/PSB), the Honorable C. D. Sims, an accomplished locksmith in his own right; however anyone associated with the Locksmith Industry is invited to consider what is presented.   There’s been a burr under my [...]

Open Carry Laws present challenges

Open Carry Laws present challenges

BY T.F. STERN We went to the local Verizon store this past weekend, a chance to upgrade my cell phone and take advantage of Father’s Day specials.  Lucy already had a Verizon account so by dropping my T-Mobile service and switching I’d get a new phone and save money to boot.  The store was fairly busy and we had to wait for a [...]

Jade Helm – Reason for Concern?

Jade Helm – Reason for Concern?

BY T.F. STERN Conspiracy rumors abound as Jade Helm  military exercises begin to roll forward in various places of the United States.  Is there reason to be concerned or is this simply a chance for our military personnel to practice? One factor to consider would have to be the public’s loss of trust towards those in government. “A key [...]

War Games and Life’s Lessons

War Games and Life’s Lessons

BY T.F. STERN Going through Facebook this morning I glanced at a photo taken of a friend, Ryan Scott Welch, as he posed during a war games exercise.  My thoughts turned back to that time when I was in the Army. My MOS was as a Military Policeman; but a lot of the training was geared toward general Infantry situations. After months of training [...]

American Thoughts

American Thoughts

BY T.F. STERN It all starts with: When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the [...]

Please don’t fall

Please don’t fall

BY T.F. STERN Early yesterday morning the phone rang as a customer needed a locksmith to come get the keys out of his car.  He was at a gas station about a mile away and the keys were in the ignition. My back has been giving me grief on and off for the past several weeks; but a simple lockout job shouldn’t be a problem, or so I thought. I [...]

Injury In the Line of Duty…or not?

Injury In the Line of Duty…or not?

BY T.F. STERN When an individual puts on a uniform in the service of his community or country, either as a fireman, police officer or military serviceman we recognize the uniform perhaps more than the individual.  If they get injured while in our service it’s our moral duty to take care of them. An article at the Fox News website by [...]

Obama’s “Potemkin Village”

Obama’s “Potemkin Village”

BY T.F. STERN Historians would recognize the term “Potemkin village” as it’s used to describe “any attempt to make others believe we are better than we really are”.   I first heard the unusual sounding combination of words this past Saturday evening as used by Dieter F. Uchtdorf in his General Conference talk, On Being Genuine, when [...]

FEMA and the Science of Extortion

FEMA and the Science of Extortion

BY T.F. STERN There are several articles on the Internet which put forth the idea that FEMA intends to withhold money from states which don’t sign on to the premise of man made global warming.   They use the updated term, Climate Change; but their religion of man made harm to Mother Earth continues as the foundation of their faith. Frank [...]

The 2nd Amendment Assault Continues

The 2nd Amendment Assault Continues

BY T.F. STERN After reading the title of a recent news article entitled, Government backs off from banning assault rifle bullet, quite a bit of information is offered; some of which is intentionally misleading.  The article, which I’m sure has multiple variations scattered throughout the nation on virtually every media outlet,…where was [...]

Texas Locksmith’s Eyes Beginning to Open

Texas Locksmith’s Eyes Beginning to Open

BY T.F. STERN Years ago I did my best to convince my fellow locksmiths that jumping on the licensing bandwagon was a mistake.  During a heated discussion while attending a meeting organized by the Associated Locksmiths of America (ALOA) one fellow wanted me to step out back and settle our differences the old fashioned way; maybe that would [...]

Which Court Papers are Worse?

Which Court Papers are Worse?

BY T.F. STERN There’s a news story out of Bryan,Texas which attempts to explain why the Federal government raided a political meeting put on by a group of folks contemplating Texas Secession from the United States on Valentine’s Day.  Police officers representing local, state and Federal agencies rounded up everyone in attendance, [...]

Spinning the Circles

Spinning the Circles

BY T.F. STERN Many years ago a friend of mine invited me to become a part of a multilevel marketing business, a chance to start something on the side and provide extra income.  This wasn’t some get rich quick scheme and would require effort and acquiring new skills to become moderately successful. One of the first skills was learning to [...]

Never let facts interfere with a lie

Never let facts interfere with a lie

BY T.F. STERN Shakespeare had a line in his play, Hamlet; most are familiar with, “To be or not to be, that is the question”.  Taking considerable liberties with this, “To lie or not to lie, that is the question”.  Hamlet would have been a success either way; but for today’s purposes let’s have some fun.  Brian Williams of NBC [...]

U.S. Courts of Law – Sharia Courts?

U.S. Courts of Law  –  Sharia Courts?

BY T.F. STERN There’s a news item on the internet about Sharia courts being used in Texas.  It would appear that what’s good for the goose isn’t necessarily good for the gander; or something like that.  Having read the article it would appear these ‘Sharia’ courts are well within the framework of religious courts, similar to those [...]
