Every Democrat is an “Empty Barrel”

Liberalism (progressivism) is a mental disorder. There’s simply no other way to explain it. This whole flap is over the phone call to families of the fallen, specifically the family of SSG Johnson, who were killed in Niger… Read More

Amazon Has a Serious Quality-Control Problem that Could Put Shooters at Risk

When it comes to convenience and low prices, it doesn’t get much better than Amazon. Like many other shoppers, I shell out the $100 per year for a Prime membership, because once you’ve had free two-day shipping, anything… Read More

The PTSD Addiction

Every now then, a song will pop up on my playlist that fills me with emotion and motivation to write something. Before I begin, watch this video by Blue October.

When The Troops Cry

In mid-2008, then-Senator Barack Obama gave an interview on military and troops issues. “Precisely because I have not served in uniform, I am somebody who strongly believes I have to earn the trust of men and women in… Read More
