War And The Innocent. Can We Have One Without Killing The Other????

Share Button

Warning – Long political post that’s going to anger a few people. OK. I’m going to piss off some of my friends right now, but I have to speak my mind. In the last couple of days, the attention of the worlds had turned back on the good folk of ISIS, ISIL, the Caliphate, or […]

More Iraq War Revisonist History… From A Historian Complaining About Revisionist History.

Share Button

Victor Davis Hanson has a piece out with the headline “Revisionist History Prevails on Iraq Invasion“. Yes. It does. But it’s who is doing it that is the problem. VDH writes: “Do we remember that Bill Clinton signed into law the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 that supported regime change in Iraq? He gave an […]

Mandela Wanted To “Kill The Whites!”….

Um… No. He didn’t. That’s the claim being made by many lunatics on the web… I love the Mandela is “The Che Guevara Of Africa” bit… Can’t leave out World Net Daily… They just have to get their digs in… And probably now former supporters of Ted Cruz. To a person, they cite a video […]

Changing Minds… My Thoughts On FISA Seven Years Ago

Share Button

I find it interesting how people change their minds and views on things. I thought that I’d always been against this program, but I’m wrong in that recollection. That’s the cool thing about blogging and commenting on other blogs. Having the ability to search and find old comments on topics is kind of cool…. An […]

Mitt Romney’s Hoover Moment?

Share Button

“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to […]

NEIL ARMSTRONG, August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012

Share Button

I am crying right now. He meant so much to this nation, so much to the world. There are so few people in this world who can say they were the very first to do something. Neil? Armstrong certainly could. So precious few have been able to bring the world together, if only for a […]

A friend who is an ardent Ron Paul supporter, upon reading that I’m not a fan of Paul’s desire to retreat back to the gold standard, suggested that I watch this video. (here is the transcript) Sorry, but it’s just not as simple as a six minute interview. There is a lot of history being […]

Europe: 1920’s – After the extremely expensive World War 1, Europe’s financial system was in tatters. Germany was expected to pay reparations to cover the costs of restoring economies in neighboring countries, due to a war they helped create and perpetuate. Fast Forward some 90 years.
