Fore! On ISIS, the Putter in Chief’s caddy says (all emphasis throughout is mine): “We haven’t made a decision to take additional actions at this time, but we truly don’t rule out additional action against ISIL if it becomes warranted,” Ben Rhodes, a senior Obama aide, told National Public Radio earlier on Thursday, using another […]

Democrats want to help Veterans? Not in this world!

by Don March 6, 2014

It is amusing to see Democrats trying to claim to support Veterans and claiming that Republicans don’t.  Democrats cut military retirement benefits, over strong Republican objections, that they now claim to want to restore.  In fact Democrats specifically intended to hurt the military, cutting military pensions for current service personnel, while only cutting civilian pensions for future […]

Competition proves that women are unequal to men

by Skip February 20, 2014

In times past, I’ve been glued to the screen watching the Olympics – this time, not so much.  TMEW has been and with the DVR, has saved off some of the events that she knows I’d like to watch a bit – short course speed skating, bobsled, bi-athalon, some of the other skiing, and snowboard.  […]

I have been wondering about this for a while as well

by Skip November 24, 2013

Thoughts on a Sunday is a non-negotiable mandatory read for me each and every week.  Tonite, DCE (aka Chan, who actually lives in my home town) has a little blurb on what many have been thinking about for a coupla few years now: The purge of high-ranking military officers has a lot of people asking […]

This “social justice” idiocy is supposed to promote “unit cohesion” – Not? Oh, that IS the point.

by Skip October 31, 2013

You know, this whole “social justice” thing is just Cultural Marxism wrapped up in Political Correctness. This is meant to do one thing and one thing only – install guilt into a vast majority of people have done nothing wrong. Sure, the colleges are full of this crap – seemingly, they can’t turn out decent […]

Do I REALLY have to explain this one?

by Skip April 2, 2013

Right – if those two headlines don’t get your blood rushing, you just don’t care. As the Dad of two combat vets, who put their lives on the line for this country, my blood boiled when I saw that active military have had their education cut short while those that shouldn’t even be here – […]

Yikes. Just…yikes.

by Tim Condon February 20, 2013

Headlines from yesterday’s Daily Mail Online: “U.S. Air Force developing terrifying swarms of tiny unmanned drones that can hover, crawl and even kill targets.  The Micro Air Vehicles will work in swarms to provide complex surveillance of a battlefield. They can also be armed with incapacitating chemicals, combustible payloads or even explosives ‘for precision targeting capability’.” […]

Anonymous responds to Obama’s 2013 Gun Control measures….

by Tom January 28, 2013

The pot is boiling.  The Executive Branch’s DHS is buying fully-automatic rifles and millions of rounds of .223 caliber ammunition. When is someone in the GOP going to file an impeachment case against this President?  Will it be left up to the people of the United States (likely just 3%, as in 1776) to correct this […]

Iran Wins RC Model Competition and Takes Home the Prize

by Mike December 18, 2011

A Y! Tech Headline on Friday suggested that the US RQ-170 spy drone which went down over Iran recently may have been downed by hacking its GPS.

BIN LADEN’S DEMISE IN FOCUS

by Rick Olson May 3, 2011

The news of Bin Laden’s demise was barely minutes old before the politicizing began in earnest. In the hours that followed, Barbara Walters on the view retorts, “I would hate now to be a Republican candidate thinking of running,” Like this somehow cancels out the high gas prices, the economy being in the toilet and […]

Impeach Obama

by Steve MacDonald March 20, 2011

DADT Meets The Matthew Shepherd/Pentagon Funding/Hate Speech Law

by Steve MacDonald December 20, 2010

Now that DADT has passed, how long will it be before a homosexual service member caught in a sexual act with another service person who is not their legal “partner” files a lawsuit against the military,–probably prompted by some activist left wing lawyer–based on violations of the Matthew Shepard (Pentagon Funding) hate speech law?

Shea-Porter’s Anti-Millitary Stand

by Steve MacDonald November 1, 2010

Blue Hampshire has a nice post about how Carol Seiu-Porter, the daughter of a WWII vet,  married to a former serviceman, stands up for veterans and the military. (I have synopsized.) Well if that is true, then the minute she gets back to DC for her lame duck session I expect her to initiate an […]
