CRA Exclusive from Casa Fernandez

13 Jul

There is a war going on to take away your rights! The enemy is well-funded, highly influential, and fights dirty. And they’ve been successful, too.

Do you realize that there are cities in California in which you cannot legally sit in your own back yard and smoke a cigar? Are you aware that the FDA is currently working to take over the regulation of cigars and tobacco across the country? Do you realize that the enemy’s ultimate goal is nothing short of an outright ban of tobacco across the country?

Thankfully there’s an army fighting for you. In our American history, there have been many instances during which citizens literally took up arms against the government to contest the usurpation of rights or the raising of taxes. Maybe you’ve heard of a few. Fortunately, these armed rebellions are a thing of the past, but the fight remains, and the enemy will be satisfied with nothing less than absolute victory.

Cigars in the Tropics

11 Jul

I used to be an avid skier. I still enjoy it very much, I just don’t do it as frequently as I have formerly. I’ve been all over the country for skiing. I would plan whole vacations around it, whether to Colorado, Utah, Tahoe, or even locations in Canada. That was my travel activity.

Well, my leisure pursuits have changed over the years, and as it turns out, so has my vacation style. You see, a ski vacation is a busy thing. And as my non-vacation life became more busy, I wanted my vacations to be less busy. I think that makes sense. On a ski trip, you have to get up, get dressed, get your boots on, carry your skis, and spend your day trying to get the most out of your (fairly expensive) lift ticket. It was a lot of fun, but it ends up being a fair amount of work, too.
