To All My Friends In the U.S., Facebook, and Elsewhere

Some call tomorrow the Fourth of July, others are adamant that it is Independence Day and the 4th is just a day on the calendar… I say stop that divisiveness! Without the calendar, we would not know when to celebrate the most heralded document in our history. We, less than 3 million strong, took a stand against a world power – and won. We won even though we did not have a draft, a disciplined…

The First Thanksgiving Proclamation

George Washington, in the first year of his first term, proclaimed a day of thanksgiving be all the people of the United States. As you read this, ask yourself, “When was the last time a President spoke this freely and decisively?” Do note that our nation’s capital had yet to be formed and at the time of this proclamation, was in New York City.

A copy of this proclamation was sent to the executives of the States by the President in a brief form letter (October 3). This form is recorded in the “Letter Book” in the Washington Papers.

Just Where Does North Korea’s Major Strategic Threat Lay?

As with all military that crosses my path, I make sure to reach out at first – and occasionally thereafter, if possible – to thank them so very much for their service, time, energy, commitment, and dedication to protecting our country.

There has not been enough time to do so, and discernment says secession would not be the wisest of moves given their level of financial debt right now, especially California’s [California] [Oregon]. Financially they are setting themselves up for a major problem on so many levels. Legally, the very heart of…

How (and Why) Hiroshima and Nagasaki Were Selected

With the 70th anniversary of the use of the first atomic bombs coming up (August 6th and 9th for those needing a reminder), the annual deluge will inevitably arrive of what did and didn’t happen, how innocent the people were needlessly killed , and why the bombs should not have been used usually accompanied by 20/20 hindsight from those that were never there. Truthfully, as much as I was tired of hearing the false claims…
