America In The Crucible.
The farther I try to stay from conspiracy theories, the more they seem to present themselves to me. Or perhaps I’m a little more curious than the average… Lord knows I used to drive my grandparents, and any available adult, crazy with questions. It’s led to a lifetime study of history and the traditions that have made America the shining beacon of freedom to the | Read More »
These Are Perilous Times.
I’m pretty certain that every bad actor worldwide is watching Obama’s fumbling mismanagement of the affairs of our nation, looking for every weakness, every security lapse, every leak. As recent events have shown us, that can be considerable. I won’t belabor the security angle… its glaring inadequacies are not only apparent to most of us, but are a major irritant besides. It’s the proverbial burr | Read More »
Truth Or Consequences.
Truth… a rare creature seldom seen near our nation’s Capitol. Watching the massive assault which has been launched against this nation is just mind boggling. We have the Marxist Democrat Congress, a defeated lame-duck Congress, attempting to ram through every single item they had left on their wish list before the Conservatives take over in January. They’re not having great success up to this point | Read More »

Pentagon Should Raise Enlisted Pay – Only Senior Officers Are Overpaid
Enlisted men are still hideously underpaid. A new recruit (E1) still makes less than $1500 a month (granted he is given rations and quarters). A perfect demonstration that the rank of ‘Private’ and the word ‘privation’ have similar roots. A new sergeant (E5) only makes $2305.00 in basic pay. Both are hideously underpaid. (I am plucking these figures from the ‘years in service’ columns that | Read More »
Transparency Only Counts with our Enemies!
The Pentagon disclosed on Monday, May 3, 2010 (a day that will certainly live in infamy, along with so many others since Obama took office) exactly how many nuclear warheads the U. S. has stockpiled. Yes. You heard me correctly. The United States has now told the WORLD exactly how many nuclear warheads we have stockpiled, PLUS how many we have retired and awaiting the | Read More »

No one in a combat line outfit wants to be in a situation where he would have to serve with an openly gay person. You can cut out all the feel-good, touchy-feely crap about gays just wanting to serve their country too. Most | Read More »

The “Bush was strong on defense” myth
Ever since Obama was installed as president, many Republicans (including some conservatives) said that they miss President Bush. Some of those Republicans, including Richard N. Weltz of AT, even claimed that Bush was strong on defense, and contrasted Bush with Obama (who began a series of disastrous defense cuts 8 months ago). Although Obama has failed to execute his duties as Supreme Commander of the | Read More »
