We’ve Come To This

January 25, 2017

ow far have we sunk? From the Founding Fathers to the whiny man-child is an incredible stretch. The differences beggar the imagination.

Once upon a time we had a president that knew how to lead. Admittedly, he sometimes accomplished it by dragging congressmen by their nose. Next we had a paranoid psychotic who thought he was a leader. Strangely, the public largely bought into his delusion. Come the presidential election of 1976 and the people were weary […]

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

July 28, 2011

It’s about time someone got serious. It obviously isn’t going to be anyone inside the Beltway. The politicians consider their careers and their juvenile ideologies more important than the well-being of the nation and its people. Why are we not blanketing this country with recall petitions. Why are we not exhibiting a similar, reciprocal disdain […]

What Caused The Debt?

July 12, 2011

What caused the debt? That sounds like an easy question. Could that be the problem? One would hope that our “leaders” could get their arms around a simple question. Well, apparently we never learn. The short-bus riders on The Hill are pretending to deal with what to do about the debt. It seems logical to […]

How To Succeed In The Army

December 3, 2009

Just what are the criteria for promotion in the Army? We have been hearing the name of General Stanley McChrystal a lot of late. He is a Four-Star General in charge of NATO forces in Afghanistan. Now does his name ring a bell? We have heard about his recommendation for an additional 40,000 troops. Seemingly […]

Says Who?

December 1, 2009

I saw thousands of sheep on my recent trip to the Highlands of Scotland. Most were just grazing on the hillsides. A few were being herded, by border collies, men or both. If I had more time I would have stopped and asked them if they really wanted to be herded to the slaughterhouse. They, […]

Explain Yourself

November 11, 2009

In her gentle and succinct manner, Cheryl took me to task for my last post. To quote, “Who are you and what have you done with Crawford.” I did respond in the comment area but felt the need to explain more fully. Her objection didn’t specify one aspect, so I intend to address each of […]
