A Tale of Two Cities

    It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. I was driving to my sister’s house to spend the holiday doing stuff with her, and I had to take a detour around four blocks of my small town’s four block downtown section because they were having a parade. About 95% of the town residence (approx. 3,000 reside here) were in attendance, either | Read More »

    Obama’s Confederate Memorial the Right Move to Make

    President Obama sent a wreath to the Confederate memorial at Arlington cemetery during the memorial services to recognize the sacrifices and service of the members of our armed forces this week. It has been a tradition since Woodrow Wilson offered a wreath to memorialize Confederate dead at Arlington and a tradition that many on the American far left wanted to see ended. They have been | Read More »

    Memorial Day – Around the Internets

    We’ll start with a soundtrack from Trace Adkins. Pray with me. God bless the ones who served and gave their all. God bless the ones who serve our country still. God guard them and protect them else they fall, And bring them safely home if it’s His will. So we pray… Amen

    Today is Memorial Day. Open thread.

    Memorial Day; Thank God That Such Men Lived

    It is easy to take for granted those who dedicate their lives to protect us all. Protecting and fighting, even dying, for our freedoms, our liberties, our security. It is easy to forget because they never ask for anything from us. They just sacrifice, asking for nothing in return. So, we simply go on about our own lives, often forgetting those who serve to make | Read More »

    The Entropy of Freedom

    A little DIGG love if you please: While Entropy has slightly different meanings according to the field of science in which it is used, its general meaning is the degradation of a system toward chaos – the gradual loss of energy leading toward nothingness. Cosmologists will tell you that at the instant of creation of our universe, at the very moment of the Big Bang | Read More »

    The Last Full Measure Of Devotion

    They came from every corner of our nation representing our best and bravest. They fought in places whose names have become familiar to us not because the field had any great significance but because of what they so bravely did there. Places like Trenton, Valley Forge, Antietam, Gettysburg, the trenches of WWI, Iwo Jima, Normandy, Porkchop Hill, Inchon, Hamburger Hill, Basra, Kuwait City, Asadabad, Baghdad, | Read More »

    A Memorial Day Prayer

    For all the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines.  For the Guardsmen, and Reservists.  Honor everlasting belongs to you.  Soldiers of America.  Your courage is your legacy, and our inspiration.  By your example do we draw strength. For those who gave their lives, and made the ultimate sacrifice.  Words alone cannot express our sorrow.  Our love follows you to the highest heights of Heaven.  You who | Read More »

    Remember the Fallen

    My brother returned, safe and sound, from Iraq this week.  A soldier in the National Guard, he was called up a year ago and spent about nine months overseas.  His first son was born while he was active and training to go over.  Though we both aspired to it, he chose the military path that I did not. My brother and I don’t get along | Read More »

    A Moment of Wonder

    I know, I know…I haven’t been around much since the Wrecking Ball of Freedom got elected by the Miracle of Democracy…but it is what it is. So, while I was hibernating, I got a new job as an Assistant Manager in a little start-up General Store/Gas Station/Pizza and Sub shop.  I meet and greet every manner of humanity out here in the country, and this | Read More »
