The IRS Suicide Bomber "Joe Stack"

I didn't know a better way to describe it. But yea, a few months ago,
this is where Joe Stack Flew his small plane into this building that housed the IRS.
I don't agree with what Joe apparently did, by burning his home with his family in it, or taking the life of an innocent worker.  But Joe had something to say, and boy did he say it.  His apparent suicide letter can be read here .  Joe hit it on the head with some of his remarks.   What he said is in my opinion being over looked because he is seen as a "nut case"   too bad, because it was a good opportunity for Americans to unite against the Government.

Name one or more movies filmed here??


New cowboys stadium and arlington stadium. They sit beside each other.
Would have been nice to take the cowboy stadium tour, but I am a
little museum'd out.

Dallas texas

This is the famous school book depository and dealey plaza. If you can
see the X in the road, X marks the spot. There are two of them. All
this looks just like I expected it to. But, lookin out the 6th floor
window, it's easy to see, it wasn't a hard shot to take like I have been
made to believe over the years. No photography allowed inside the 6th
floor. Coolest part by far, was lookin out the window.

Battle of Waco

Not much left, but this memorial. Not the first time the Gov't screwed
up, and I'm sure not the last.

I had to leave Nebraska

I'm surprised winds werent higher, but after 200 or so miles in those
winds, i turned south. Looks like i'll be dodgeing storms on tuesday.

Jesse James House

Interesting, but somehow you forget your in the house where he lived
and was killed with all the exibits. $3 to enter and worth the price.
History, cant change it, just learn from it.

James Farm

What a awesome experience.  The 2nd picture is actually a replica stone at the original grave site.  The original was chipped away at by souvenir hunters till there was hardly anything left, they do have whats left of it in the museum however.  He was moved long ago and has actually had 3 funerals.  Of course the original that was here, then when he was moved to the cemetery, and then when they exhumed the body for DNA testing.  Of course they have pieces of the original casket inside the museum.
