Welcome to the official homepage of Dusty the Kid (Real name: Rev.
Dustin M. Shappee, R.R.C.X.); Traveling Worker, Show-Man, Odd-Job
Do-Er, Hermeticist, Reverend, Laughing Madcap, Last Cowboy, Latter-Day
Tom Sawyer, Freeman on the Land, and Friend!
This site is currently being worked on, and I am quite sorry about
that. My hunch is you probably found this site since I linked it to
ya, in which case you're probably my new-found friend (even if you are
a business contact). Else, you found it though a web crawler, in which
case, welcome to my part of the Net!
Please allow me to tell you about myself
I think of myself as the All-American kid, trying to be the
polymath of old. I think of myself as a last cowboy. I ride from town
to town, looking for where the grapes of wrath are stored. I feel
like an old country boy and my friends tell me my assertion is
I am a Neo-Luddite, which is why you won't find me on many of the
"Social Media" platforms, and I rarely use the computer.
Regardless, I see how the Internet inter-connects people, as well as
having the convince of having all my opinions easily assessable. That
way I could just say "read this, I wrote an article on it."
I frequently live outside, and I love to travel. I'm never in one
permanent place, though don't let that make you think I am pompous,
ignorant, or a defector. Pleasr don't think this means I'm edgy. I
just love to see this great country of ours, and I love to be
My three goals
I have three long-term goals for myself. These are, in their
- Get a Ham Radio License and Station
- Get a Pilot's License
- Get a Homestead that is (at least) 2 acres and begin to farm
I realize these goals take long to accomplish, and I acknowledge the
step-by-step processes involved. Each goal has unlimited potential
as well. Imagine it, if you may? The first has me start Technician
Class, get to Commercial, start a whole prodution with the radio.
The second will let me fly in a single engine, then a double engine,
then a jet, then commercial. And the third? Isn't that the American
I am a Hermeticist. We're the people who think the whole universe
is thought. It's complex to explain to a novice, but I am close to
what you'd (probably) know to be a Neo-Pegan (as in, Odinist). This
is just a comparison though, and I am not of that particular faith.
In specifics, I am a member of what is technically the "New
Thought" movement, which is a latter-day interpretation. A
good book to try to understand this is The Kyballion
written under the pseudony "The Three Initiates". This
is essentially my religion.
As for societal beliefs, I am a member of the National
Alliance, an organization dedicated to restoring national
pride, and the spiritual essence of my own people. You can look them
up and assume what you may. They are similar in activity to the
NRA, though they are not Gun-Centric. It's hard to explain the
specifics of our activities, but the long and short of it is we're
an advocacy group.
I believe in A.T.W.A. This is an acronym for Air, Tree, Water,
Animals&slash;All the Way Alive. This is a philosophy that is
not only environmentalist, but believes in the avoidance of waste,
and the truth that if man returns to simpler life, he will
wake-up and be all the way alive. It is man in his natural
state. A.T.W.A. also rejects the Neo-Hoffmanite commie bunk,
and the Global Warming hoax. We believe in truths, and natural
states of being. "Return to the Horse" ol' Charlie wanted.
I also believe very strongly in the beliefs of the
Unabomber, though I am not of his ideology
"Anarcho-Primitivism". Rather, I am a National
Socialist. Combining the two with the lovely David Lane, you have
the truths to life.
Besides all the technical terms and book-speak (harr harr), I am a
pretty fun guy! All the people I know tell me I am the strangest,
yet funnest and craziest guy they'll meet! I am a Madcap, Ace
Ventura, Willy Wonka, and an Aries! Am I bullshitting? Send me a
letter, or take me to lunch. Then you may be the judge.

Since I rarely use the computer, or the Television (and this due
to my ethical and political beliefs) I may not be able to be
contacted at all hours of the day and night, but if I'm working for
you, I will never stray too far. I can be contacted on this site
(that is SDF) if you know how. The
more technical-inclined would be able to figure this out. I accept
talk requests, emails, I am in the BBoard, and I am also in Usenet.
I previously used Usenet under a pseudonym but have abandoned it.
People tell me that I sound older and more mature than I am. Probably
don't in this website, but please forgive as I wrote this under the
guidence of my friend Jack Daniels. Sometimes he's a proud man, and
sometimes he's a bit of a bitch. I think he's being the latter in this
