Several times in the past two weeks, I’ve mentioned Faribault Woolen Mill Co. Having spent half of my growing up years in Minnesota, I had friends from summer camp who lived in Faribault and whose parents and friends worked there. The mill is a bit of a state landmark.

“An “easy” life is not necessarily always a good life. A hard life is not always bad. Hard work is satisfying, dirt can be soul-cleansing, and in whose company our time is spent is the real factor by which the value of our minutes and hours should be measured.” -SB, Admin/Editor of SustainingLiberty.com Regrettably, after [...]
If visiting your favorite blog or political website to see a notice like the one above sounds like a nightmare to you, do some research on SOPA. Maybe I don’t need to rehash what hundreds of thousands of other bloggers and websites have already said. But I can’t sit idly by and say nothing at [...]
In this post, we feature guest-blogger and our assistant Admin, Angie Bare. She’s a military wife and the mother of three boys, staking out her claim on an urban homestead in the Pacific Northwest.

A twitter link from Adam Baldwin certainly helped boost our traffic. Special thanks to our assistant admin Angie for the help [...]

Sir/Ma’am: I am writing to express my concern regarding the proposed construction of a Walmart store in Tacoma.
