False Religion

Several years ago, a member of the so-called “front porch” attacked me for saying that, “all in all I considered service in the Navy a fair trade. I wanted to fly and see the world, and the Navy made good on both promises. That was why I served.” This person went on to essentially scream at […]

Lest we forget

Today is the 20th Anniversary of the Great Betrayal. Hong Kong was transferred from its rightful owners to the Chinese. Thus the great betrayal occurred. Why does China want to exert control over Hong Kong? Since the Communist party took power in China in 1949, it has consistently decried the “century of humiliation” that China […]

Now it’s time to make some decisions

America fucked up last night. They had a choice to make-and they chose the selfish option. Now they deserve to suffer for it. And suffer we will. For the short term, people will rejoice, however when people experience the effects of the legislation that he will propose-and the Supreme Court nominees he will name, all […]

The only 9-11 post you need to read today.

And I did not write it. But I wish I had. Jim Wright of Stonekettle Station did, and its worth the couple of minutes it will take to read it in it’s entirety.   15 years ago today 19 shitheads attacked America. They killed 3000 of us. And then … America got its revenge for 9-11. Yes […]

Can’t believe I missed it.

Yesterday was Women’s Equality Day. And I totally forgot about it. I’m so depressed.  After all, there are some hard facts of life: And while you are at it-get me a beer: Ok honey?

When do we get to blame the Iraqis?

I woke up this morning to see articles blaming the current situation on Iraq-on our failure to leave troops there. John McCain is living up to his reputation of never meeting a war he did not want Americans to fight. They are trotting out the “I told you so” brigades to say its Obama’s fault […]

There was never a chance………..

Phib, in one of his repeated themes, bemoans the fact that we did not give ourselves a chance to “succeed” in Afghanistan. “All it required was about another four-five years of patience. Of course, that 4-5 from now is based on an alternative history where we did not announce our retreat in DEC 09 … […]

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela passed away at the age of 95 yesterday. Clearly the world has lost a great man. He was great not just because of his struggle against apartheid-but when the tables finally turned, he did not give into the natural instincts to take vengeance on his oppressors-but to seek a middle path that made […]

The chance of precipitation just went up.

Not rain falling, but bombs. Dropped from Israeli planes. The western powers signed an interim agreement with Iran last night. As expected a certain, rather stubborn group of folks is not happy about that one bit: Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu characterized the agreement signed with Iran early Sunday morning as a historic mistake. Directly contrasting […]

People who always f*ck you over.

Today is the 25 th of October. And I can't think of a better reason to celebrate this day than it is the annversiary of another excursion into futility-namely that of the Charge of the Light Brigade! As is my custom, I repost an analysis I did here, many yeasrs back. Still seems true. Substitute […]

Who are you? The Maid?

One particular item I have neglected to comment on in the last couple of months, primarily because I have been rather busy, and also America has been involved recently in Benghazi! Benghazi! BENGHAZI! ( one of the series of non scandals that is warming the hearts of the moron class in America)-something a lot worse happened […]

Margaret Thatcher

Margaret Thatcher died today, at the age of 87. As a result, thanks to our British satellite system,  we have been watching voluminous coverage of the memories of her life. What strikes me the most is how very different it is from the gushing American coverage. It speaks volumes about the naiveté of Americans in […]
