The Case for “Price Gouging”

While I was listening to Neil Cavuto on Fox News earlier, I was shocked about what was being said during an interview with the Florida Attorney General. The subject of the interview was “price gouging” in the state…. Read More

Transgenders Incompatible with Military

Trump announced today that so-called “transgendered” people would no longer be able to serve in the military overturning an Obama policy that was put in place about a year ago. As a former Army First Sergeant, I support… Read More

No Special Treatment for Veterans on Gun Rights

I’m going to take a lot of heat for this, I predict. But, I say it as someone who actually benefits from these kinds of policies. I think the difference is that I don’t like it for practical… Read More

A New Beginning

Well, I’ve decided to leave Facebook and hopefully regain so much lost time to that pathetic platform. I’ll still be keeping my public page open so that I can share these posts until we are able to create… Read More

Amazingly Skilled Harrier Pilot

There are pilots and then there are Harrier pilots. While I’m personally a fan of the A-10 and always will be (unless something comes along that really knocks me off my feet), I must admit that Harriers are… Read More

What’s Going On With Senior Army Leadership?

Throughout history, general officers have had a lot of responsibilities. They were from the elite class and were considered to be the gentlemen of the military. Until the latter part of the American Revolution generals were considered sacrosanct… Read More

The Immigration Conundrum

Will Fools Fulminate the Fourth Amendment?

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve no doubt heard about all the incidents involving people dressed as clowns. It started as people just showing up on various security systems dressed up as clowns. It was creepy at… Read More

Gods Among Human Beings

Aristotle wrote in The Politics that those with the most virtue make the best rulers. He noted that since the purpose of government was to instill and encourage virtue in the citizenry, the rulers must obviously be quite… Read More

VA Extends Its Neglect of Veterans from Living to Deceased

The Veterans Administration is again proving to be a woefully incompetent agency that just can’t seem to realize that their entire purpose for existence is to take care of the people who put their lives on the line… Read More

A New Beginning

I’ve decided to leave social media on October 1. It’s nothing but a “wretched hive of scum and villainy.” It brings out the worst in people, myself included. Besides, it’s much easier to discuss things more in depth… Read More

Who’s To Blame?

When I was arrested for the first time in my life three years ago, my eyes were opened. I had never been in trouble with the law in my life and possessed the highest security clearance available. I… Read More
