Former United States Marine and Viet Vet, Retired now and enjoying life.


    Bill O’Reilly vs. Donald Trump on the issue of anchor babies.

    A couple months ago I  wrote a column titled:”Why Donald Trump is right about anchor babies”, (Aug. 2015). The subject of anchor babies and illegal immigrants came up again recently in the republican party presidential debates on FOX Business Channel. Contenders Governors John Kasich and Jeb Bush both came down pretty hard on Trump and others who called for the deportation of both illegal immigrants | Read More »

    The Benghazi fiasco. How republicans blew it again.

    I have waited several days before writing this column in the hope of gaining more perspective on what I actually witnessed when the House Select Committee on Benghazi met on October 20th and questioned the former Secretary of State about her role in the Benghazi attack and subsequent disaster. I have waited and considered — and conclude that the republicans blew it, big time. The committee | Read More »

    Is Joe Biden really out? Hardly!

    Joe Biden is a shrewd, partisan politician. When he announced in late October that after weeks of hard thought, he would not seek the 2016 presidential nomination for the democratic party, many in the media swooned. What a guy. What a patriot. By golly, Joe may be out of the contest, but he’s definitely “in” for the working men and women of our nation. Wrapped | Read More »

    Baking cakes and gay weddings, etc.

    Can the owner of a bakery refuse to sell a cake with a celebratory message on it to a gay couple seeking to wed, based on the baker’s religious objections to gay marriages? Yes – but. Can a photographer refuse to be the official photographer for the same situation above? Yes, but. Can a public employee refuse to issue a license to a gay couple | Read More »

    Why I now question the wisdom of a Trump vote. And why Carly Fiorina is looking better and better.

    WHAT’S TO LIKE ABOUT DONALD TRUMP? I like the fact that Donald Trump is saying all the right things about issues important to all Americans – albeit in fuzzy terms — but that’s okay, for now. I believe him when he says he will make America’s military the strongest in the world again. I believe him when he says he will build a fence to | Read More »

    Why Donald trump is right about anchor babies and the 14th amendment.

    The state may not take the children as its own, leaving the parents with an untenable Hobson’s choice and the children without parents.

    The truth is: a third party already exists.

    House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% and Senate President Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% have done to the Republican Party what Democrats could only have dreamt of achieving: the destruction of the Republican Party. As noted below, these two “leaders” have not only alienated their independent/conservative base among voters in cities and towns across America, but they have | Read More »

    They didn’t build that on their own? Oh, yeah, Sen. Warren, they did.

    “There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody.” Elizabeth Warren, 2012. “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Barak Obama, 2012. “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs. You know that old theory, trickle-down economics. That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather | Read More »

    The case for Impeachment.

    The Republicans are wrong in believing that the American public would reject a vote to impeach the president of the United States. Republicans have foolishly bought into the liberal argument that any attempt to impeach would irk the public and mobilize the democratic base in the November congressional and senate elections, resulting in public retaliation against members of congress who exercised their only lawful response | Read More »

    Benghazi: Will Democrats Show Their True Colors?

    Why is there a need for additional hearings into what happened at Benghazi? Why indeed? What difference does it really make? to quote Mrs. Clinton, the former Secretary of State. After countless hours and hearings into the events of September 11, 2012 what has the republican congress discovered? Do we have any idea who told the military to stand down? Do we have any idea | Read More »
