Consideration of our Enemies

We have grown quite complacent with regard to terrorists and their actions, in large because we have this incredible noise machine which keeps suggesting everything is fine, the situation copacetic, nothing to worry about, our enemy’s on the run.  The unfortunate part is this man, his party, his machine, is part and parcel with the terrorists, and he can say what he does because he controls much of what happens to our military, on the...

Lone Survivor

We’ve been at war now continuously since I was born, fifty six years ago, and having served two decades active in the Corps, I still don’t have a clue how our “political leadership” ever allowed us into any of these wars.  Today, we have great controversy over overt things, but the real controversy lies in covert things, the questions all the warriors want answered, but which are always refused.   A survivor from a Navy Seal...

Argument for the right not to exercise a right, Mr President

Pour yourself a cup of coffee and fix it just the way you like it.  I’ll wait. Today we travel down the road of where many have traveled.  This road is one that those before us worked very hard and long to make smooth.  It is the road of leadership; paved with blood, sweat, and tears, made smooth by the pounding of feet by those who have walked before us. The ability to lead is something a few are born with.  Even those with this...

Coming out of a Disaster

With regard to obamacare, there should be little doubt at this point, there was never a designed, seriously considered plan assembled for future health care, noting problems, considered solutions, a design to enhance a working system and improve it, obamacare was designed to end the free market health care, and establish the government in control of what would later come out.  While many “penny ante” issues were raised, and false...
