May Day!

May Day!

“May Day” when repeated three times is recognized worldwide as a cry for help in life threatening situations. The call is traditionally used by mariners and aviators. Unfortunately, crying May Day in the case of a dying nation will not garner the support of nearby ships or planes. But it can be the battle cry of the patriots who understand that the country they love is under siege and in dire straits.

War, peace, oil, heroism, and futility

There is no way, with my limited service as a draftee during the Viet Nam era, that I  can even begin to compare my time in the service with the sacrifices of true heroes such as John McClain.  However, it is important that a few things be pointed out concerning his article.

We’ve been at war now continuously since I was born, fifty-six years ago, and having served two decades active in the Corps, I still don’t have a clue how our “political leadership” ever allowed us into any of these wars.  Today, we have great controversy over overt things, but the real controversy lies in covert things, the questions all the warriors want answered, but which are always refused.

By what authority do those highbrows in  black robes think they have to violate the Constitution and by extension, the will of the American people?  Justices are warranted to determine the legality of a law or an activity, as relates to the US Constitution and then render an opinion thereon.   Redefining legislation or altering its wording or intent, is not legal. 

Religion of ignorance!

A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the RIGHTS which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins.

– Benjamin Franklin

Goodness gracious, America – what is it going to take for the American people to bring forth justice against an administration that is willfully and purposely tearing down the Constitution of the United States? Of course, we know that this is nothing but an attempt by the current administration to recreate our country in the image that looks just like themselves … lawless!

NSA surveillance: reform or ruse?

The NSA surveillance program is now in bad hands.

Late this morning, de facto President Barack Obama spoke for nearly forty-five minutes about the NSA surveillance program. He said he would reform it to balance security with liberty. He also denied anyone had ever abused the program. But with his history, no one can really trust him. Moreover the “balance” he proposed is little more than vapor. The real solution is far simpler, and literally comes from one of the Founders.

Christie: I am not a bully

Chris Christie called a special Senate election for his own benefit. Or did he?

The airwaves, blogs, and newspapers have been filled with Bridgegate, the label given to the questionable political activities of Governor Christie. Highlights of the story being reported are as follows:

Chris Christie bridge scandal – review

Chris Christie of New Jersey: did he learn anything?
Print Friendly

The Chris Christie bridge scandal drew more attention last week than any other story. The attention did not last. New Jersey Democrats have not yet found any order from Chris Christie to create “traffic problems in Fort Lee.” (And not for lack of seeking have they not found it.) But the mainstream media, and the Fox News Channel, never asked all the questions they should have asked. These questions deal with more than who gave the order to slow down traffic. They strike at the heart of the role of government in transportation. They also go to the real agenda. And that agenda is far more dire than a mere fit of pique.

NSA surveillance: let’s sue ‘em!

The National Security Agency first lied about the NSA surveillance program. They said they were running no such program. (“N-n-not w-w-wittingly.”) Now they brazenly assert they have a perfect right. So now an angry United States Senator has the perfect remedy. He wants the American people, or at least everyone with a cellular telephone, to sue the NSA and ask a judge to enjoin the NSA surveillance program for good.

The Ultimatum: Obama out in 2014?

The New Year is normally a time for renewals and looking enthusiastically towards the newness of our life’s calendar as we turn the page on THAT old year ending (you can pause here for an—EW*) but, with a fresh start and rejuvenation we look toward the upcoming events and goals we have set for our future in this new year.  And, with our typically American optimistic can-do-outlook, we take this time to analyze our lives, to stop and consider where we are today and what changes we would like to make for 2014.
