A rock and a hard place. I remember the first time I took the oath of enlistment. I was seventeen and very wet behind the ears. I knew about service because of my Dad and both grandfather’s experience in the World Wars. But as we repeated the words (inserting our own names at the appropriate […]Read More A Rock and a Hard Place
Warning: If you don’t like posts about Patriotism, stop reading now. I was taking inventory of my life in the last few days and here is what I think I found. First, I was born an American which means that because of decisions my ancestors made, I wasn’t born in Scotland, England, Ireland, Germany, […]Read More The coming storm
Fair warning… I have been avoiding politics but something has been on my mind recently. Stop reading now if this kind of stuff bothers you. (I am also in the early stages of Covid 19 and pretty exhausted… but I started working on this story before I got sick) I was born in May of […]Read More By any other name…
Today (April 20th, 2020) is Freedom day in Pennsylvania. Seems funny after all these years that we would have to talk about freedom, but a number of people are starting to think that our government is being a bit overbearing. Its obvious that a national crisis has brought about many changes but it is beginning […]Read More April 20, 2020 #FreePennsylvania
Warning – Warning – Warning Purely political rant coming on!!! "In 1997, Holder made history … when President Clinton nominated him to be the deputy attorney general.

I rarely reblog someone else’s page but I know that I have a following of a number of veterans who have honorably served their country. I saw this one this morning and thought that is deserved a little more recognition. http://redflagnews.com/headlines/disarming-americas-heros-veterans-receiving-official-letters-prohibiting-them-from-purchasing-possessing-receiving-or-transporting-a-firearm-or-ammunition From the article written By Constitutional Attorney Michael Connelly, J.D.

What an insidious sickness we have submitted ourselves to in the name of “comity”. A group of good old boys (and girls) have entrenched themselves on the shores of the Potomac in an almost ironclad posture that has been strangling the life out of America’s freedoms. How did we get here? Frankly, […]Read More “… the decorous quarters of the Senate”
I saw this posted on a web site today and had to share. For all of my friends down in North Carolina, I do sincerely hope there are not too many like this person running around without adult supervision. We have had people like this throughout the history of the country. Otherwise PT Barnum would […]Read More A more modern way of living… really???
3,531,905.43 square miles. That is roughly the area that makes up the United States of America. We are certainly not the biggest single nation but we are also not the smallest. Last night, I flew over the section of the country between Atlanta and Pittsburgh on my way home from a business trip. The night […]Read More Its bigger than you think
Over the weekend I found myself watching one of the cable stations that plays old westerns. The movie was an oldie starring Randolph Scott in a very interesting role for him. He was actually a bad guy who was pretending to be a good guy. The movie was probably made later in his career when […]Read More You wouldn’t shoot an unarmed man would you?
