He who pays the piper calls the tune

Last night during the Super Bowl I found myself in a pitched Face Book battle in which I was one again cast as Leonidas in the narrow pass of Thermopylae with scant few fellow Spartans. At the mouth of the … Continue reading

In war there are the “lucky” and then there is Steve Young

“The reason my responses are limited is because I am at work. Some of us weren’t lucky enough to be war heroes, so we still have to work for a living instead of being able to rely on a monthly … Continue reading

Our Flag …. “a living thing.”

In this digital, disconnected age of “me… me… me”, I mourn the loss of true patriotism in my country. We have a president who initially refused to wear a flag lapel pin, didn’t bring hand to heart during the National Anthem and … Continue reading

As far as I’m concerned… it’s a man’s world

  A couple of days ago I willingly engaged in a back-and-forth with a long ago public school friend of mine when he popped up on Facebook as he does every few months. Steve (his real name) is a classic, … Continue reading

A Christmas present for John F. Kerry

I thought 2004 would be the last of John F. Kerry–who served in Vietnam (and Cambodia)  I’m told–but no; rising like a political third-string zombie he still haunts the Senate chambers contaminating its importance and history. Worse, Kerry will soon … Continue reading

No Country for Old Men………………

There is little to be gained from this election’s continued vivisection; the left’s polls were pretty damned accurate… the U.S. electorate has changed far more than Real America thought and much more quickly. What we assumed to be over-optimistic left-wing … Continue reading

Death in a small corner of Hell

Let’s some some things straight right off the bat. First, the attack on the US “consulate” in Libya on September 11 was not carried out by a “mob” or “rioters” or “demonstrators protesting an “anti-Muslim film” they’d never seen; nor I’ll venture, had anyone … Continue reading

9/11/2001

Originally posted on September 11, 2011 Ten years gone….. a nation’s failure After almost 24 straight hours of watching listening and reading everything available on the attack, I fell into a numbed, head buzzed sleep, then startled awake about 2:30 a.m. The unmistakable … Continue reading

“Service before self”… unless you’re a member of a minority group

The far left always employs the same strategy and the military always loses. The above constitutes yet another attack on the military’s core tenet… “good order and discipline”, and thus damages our national defense. The photos, by Brynja Sigurdardottir Photography in Washington, were featured on the … Continue reading

It would have been unthinkable to learn that FDR was closely connected with the German National Socialists in 1936….
