Charlottesville

  The events in Charlottesville were completely predictable. The ‘offended’ left has moved to needlessly destroy huge chunks of Southern history and tradition over the past few years. PC fanatics have done everything from sweeping the names of Confederate heroes from schools and streets to removing statues and flags from the town square … even denouncing […]

Coffin Nails

Lately, I’ve been having three reactions to the kind of savage, singularly senseless shootings that occurred at the church in Charleston, SC.  First, there is the obvious revulsion to the heinous act itself.  It seems the knee-jerk reaction to such crimes is to blame the firearm before the psychotic murderer.  No, I’m not a ‘shrink’ […]

Remember Pearl Harbor

Exactly 73 years ago today, on a peaceful Sunday, the Empire of Japan launched a brutal, unprovoked attack against The United States killing nearly 3,000 Americans and wounding 1,100 more. Let us take a moment to remember December 7, 1941 and the evil that was unleashed that day … that may it never reach our […]

Amok Time

Let’s get the narrative right:  “COP SHOOTS VIOLENT ROBBERY SUSPECT” … not an innocent kid and certainly no choirboy!  Michael Brown was the bad guy here.  Then prosecute Brown’s Father for inciting to riot and hold Sharpie, Holder and Obama to account for fanning the flames in Ferguson.  Finally, disburse crowds more aggressively, begin arresting […]

Shooter? Really?

The horrific mass murders in Santa Barbara last Friday were described as follows:  “As authorities reconstructed the events, they would conclude that Rodger had stabbed three victims in his apartment, shot and killed three others at random, and injured 13 more either with gunshots or a car that he used as a battering ram against […]

History, Not Politics

It seems that within a few days of the 9/11 Memorial opening at ‘ground zero’ in New York, there are still a few malcontents who object to how Muslims are portrayed.  As the old Latin expression goes, “Difficilus Pedugi” … which roughly translates to, “Tough Pedugi!” This Memorial is not about Muslims or making them […]

Please Mister P.

Vladimir Putin annexes the Crimea as a first step toward rebuilding the old Soviet Union … while our Orator-in-Chief tells him that’s a 19th Century thing to do and it’s not acceptable in the 21st Century.  Putin laughs, slightly elevates a middle finger, and masses 100,000 troops along the Ukrainian border with tanks at the […]

One Day In History

Seventy-two years ago today, it was a typical sleepy Sunday morning in Hawaii.  A little after 8 AM Pearl Harbor was just waking up, with some people at breakfast, some attending church and others already on the tennis court or out for a morning jog.  Sailors on ships of the U.S. Pacific fleet were raising […]

Racist “Game”?

Knockout.  Polar Bear Hunting.  These are the names for a frightening new “game” being played by black youths.  You don’t hear the Polar Bear reference very often; in fact this type of assault has only recently been covered at all by the media.  You see, Polar Bears are white and the players in this “game” […]

Kennedy Retrospective

It was 1963.  We didn’t have a government healthcare disaster or roving bands of Black youths making a game out of punching folks in the face.  The only terrorists we knew of were the latest generation of Rock ‘n Rollers that were going to destroy the world … at least according to most adults.  We […]
