First Step in Rebuilding U.S. Military?

Posted by on July 16, 2017 at 9:22 pm

“We’ve done deep damage to our military because of the budget cuts, the continuing resolutions, the erratic nature of funding over the last few years.”  — Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) I considered writing about the Russia collusion / Trump Jr. mess, but then I figured you all […]

“[Obama’s] transgender decision is costly in dollars and short on common sense.”  — Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) Prior to voting on the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on several proposed amendments to the core bill. One of those was “H.Amdt. 183 (Hartzler) to H.R. 2810: To […]

The American Idea

“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”  — James Madison Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) aggravates and annoys me as much as he does/says things I like. Just when I really start to appreciate him again, […]

Paglia on Democrats, Journalism, Islamist Terror, and LGBT

Posted by on June 25, 2017 at 8:30 pm

Liberal progressive. Atheist. Member of LGBT community. Pro-choice, feminist icon. Given the above attributes, you wouldn’t think there was much for a politically- and religiously-conservative individual like me to agree on with Camille Paglia (silent ‘g’), writer of Sexual Personae and Free Men, Free Women. For the most part, that’s true. But, Ms. Paglia is […]

Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way

Posted by on June 18, 2017 at 9:05 pm

This blogpost is probably not about what you think it’s about. Based on the title — a phrase variously attributed to Thomas Paine, George S. Patton, Laurence J. Peter, and “Anonymous” –, one would most likely think it is about leadership in general, or maybe with a business/entrepreneurship or military emphasis. It’s not. The title […]

In Other News…

“Trey Gowdy is the right person for the job. He has a long history of demanding accountability, upholding transparency, and relentlessly pursuing the truth.”  — Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) While we are all alternately fascinated, repulsed, engrossed, and confused by the Comey news and subsequent opinionating of late regarding President Trump and the Russians, a […]

Radical Christians, U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, and the Paris Climate Accord

Posted by on June 4, 2017 at 10:01 pm

It has been a busy weekend, and I wasn’t sure what I’d have time to share with you this week. I knew I wanted a political element to it, though. So, I looked back at several articles from the past few days and came up with a few items of interest to briefly comment on…. […]

Defending Trump Without Selling Out

Posted by on May 21, 2017 at 9:43 pm

I think we can all agree that many of President Trump’s problems, including several of his agenda items getting stalled, are his own fault. In his recent “Open Letter to President Trump”, Ben Shapiro took the president to task for this, saying, “Yes, dealing with Congress is like trying to herd cats. But you can’t […]

100 Days In

Posted by on April 30, 2017 at 9:47 pm

Everyone’s talking about Trump’s first 100 days in office, but I’m going to keep my comments fairly short. Trump himself, as I’m sure you know, is now saying that this “100 Days” marker is arbitrary and doesn’t mean much. And he’s right,… mostly. The media started doing this awhile back, and it makes for a […]
