When Do We Get Our Country Back

It is 17 years since 9/11. During this time we have shown no ability to make our country safe nor bring us, the people, peace. Instead the government churns more and more BS, adds more and more layers of suppression, and generally acts like an occupier. Trump’s heart seems in the right place. He actually seems to be pursuing national interests. One sign is that Lindsey Graham is disappointed in his “Syria response”. I expect nothing short of planting the 1st Marine Division in Aleppo would do for Graham. If he thinks it was too little, it implies to rational thinking that perhaps it was just right. But elsewhere the Left is untouched. Trump is shackled with BS investigations but nothing seems to stop the Left. ?Why hasn’t… Continue reading

Syria

So the war drums are beating. All across the Potomac the War Party is out with their paint, dancing. ?But should we “respond”. ?If so, how – ie to what degree. Trashing an airbase didn’t seem to make much difference, so ?how many do we have to trash now. ?More importantly, why. ?What is our national interest.

Defending the 2nd.

Of late there has been an inundation of marches, speeches, opinions on talking heads TV, and that ever-present skinny twerp who assaults other people’s livelihoods because of disagreement while giving the communist salute. Hordes of kids suddenly are the smartest thing since Einstein, whose perspicacity we should unquestioningly be following. And all of it is aimed at eliminating the EBR (Evil Black Rifle). No less than a retired SCOTUS justice, Stevens, calls for the repeal of the 2nd Amendment. Although truth be told, he wasn’t too bright while ON the bench, so one should have little expectation of new-gained insight. Meanwhile in support of the 2nd we see ….. nothing. Those few “children” who actually ARE wise enough to understand the 2nd and its importance are given no… Continue reading

Mikhail’s Navy

Driving off base today I saw a protest.  There were a bunch of protesters waving signs.  Chanting.  Yelling at cars going by.  People honked to show support in response to some of the signs (“honk to show your support,” etc), and the protesters all went “Wooooo!” * THE PROTEST WAS ON BASE. * There were people in uniform in the crowd, along with people in civilian clothes, children, etc. I was going to turn right and leave base until I saw this thing, but I got a power surge in my WTF circuit, and drove about a block up the road and into a parking lot, throwing the van around a little until I could get lined up to return on the proper side and pull up at… Continue reading
