Semper Fi: Deport Those Damn Marines

Entry Img

JFK Would Still Be Alive President John F. Kennedy would undoubtedly have served a second term and retired to a long post-presidential career had it not been for the murderous Marines. Lee Harvey Oswald, JFK’s assassin, was a marksman trained by the Corp. Oswald enlisted in the Marines in 1956 and served in the Marine […]

Celebrating the America Ideal

Entry Img

Tolerance and the Rule of Law Two hundred years ago this year, in 1815, America was embroiled in a war with England during which our capitol city was destroyed.  The war was fiercely unpopular with many Americans even though we were under direct attack. And, in 1915, one hundred years ago, we were once again […]

Formula for Mayhem: Booth, Oswald & Dylann Roof

Entry Img

The Inner Struggle The news that Dylann Roof, a 21-year-old, was the murderer of nine black church-goers in Charleston, SC, has caused both grief and consternation as Americans express deep concern over his “radicalization” and racist views. Dylann Roof has historic company where acts of infamy and horror are concerned. He was a young American, […]

Race: The Colored Purpose

Entry Img

How Quickly We Forget Rachel Dolezal, apparently of caucasic origin but who wished to be seen as black, has resigned from her leadership post at the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The Times reports that Ms. Dolezal told Matt Lauer on the Today Show that “I identify as […]

Islam, Conservatives and Science

Entry Img

When Blue Jeans Are to Blame Fox News reported yesterday that Maulana Fazlur Rehman, a conservative Pakistani politician and cleric, proclaimed that blue jean-clad-women were responsible for “earthquakes, inflation and natural disasters.” Does Rehman present another easy opportunity to heap scorn on Islam? The real object of scorn is so called “conservatism” wherever it is found, […]

Hey, Hon, They’re Rioting in Baltimore–Again.

Entry Img

As American as Apple Pie Baltimore may not be the first American City but where rioting is concerned they have to be close. When talking of riots and Baltimore, one must be specific. 1861? A.K.A. the “Pratt Street Massacre” when southbound Union troops were waylaid by traitorous “secesh” trash as their rail cars were pulled […]

Congressional Staffers: Pay Raise Needed!

Entry Img

Forced to Go Abroad New information out this week underscores the critical need for congressional staffers to receive a substantial increase in pay. Fred W. Pagan, a staffer for U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) was arrested by officers from Homeland Security yesterday for allegedly purchasing drugs from China with the intent to sell them for “sexual favors.” Pagan was […]

Lincoln (and Liberty), Captive

Entry Img

Abraham Lincoln died 150 years ago this morning here in Washington, D.C., as he lay propped sideways on a too small bed, unconscious and insensible. His costly triumph was the saving of the Union. In modern consciousness he not only freed the slaves but is a civil rights super hero, too. Busy man. Lincoln famously suspended the […]

Remembering Glenn

Entry Img

I want us to recall his way with humor. In this blur of grief we can forget that Glenn was very funny– mostly in person when his subtle and quick facial expressions were fully “deployed” in the best firefighting sense. He was a master of the sidelong glance, often paired with a quick rolling of the […]

Kentland’s “Gone With The Wind”

Entry Img

Statter911 posted a story last night entitled “Kentland VFD (33) Tells How Fire Engines Were Caught in Wind Driven Fire”. The epic film “Gone With The Wind” is very briefly summarized by IMDB as, “A manipulative Southern belle carries on a turbulent affair with a blockade runner…” In the KVFD remake, 33’s crew is the bosomy […]

It does if you are a Republicant. They justify everything wrong they do by trying to say the other side does it. You are right about the k(no)w nothing party.

My only hope is that someday we don't have to vote for "the best of the worst". So far I am not really impressed with any of this gaggle from either party. Happy 4th and God Bless America because we need all the help we can get these days. I just hope it doesn't take…

Ah, Spartacus--more disconnected blather? Try to stay on topic. By the way, following your contrived logic, do two wrongs really make a right?
