It Only Took A Few Years

January 15th, 2005 · No Comments

Never let it be said that President George W. Bush is inflexible. Bush had been referring to the Nebraska Democrat as “Nellie” since 2001. Nelson disliked the nickname and had asked the president to stop using it. — Joey Arak, “The Odd Truth: Whoa, Nellie! Bush Greets Benny” It only took about four years, too! […]

Military Transformation

December 20th, 2004 · 1 Comment

The U.S. military is undergoing a transformation. The idea is to create a rapidly-moving force. Along the way, a decision was made to spend billions on fighter planes and “information technology.” Not so much on armor. The information technology, in particular, has proven incredibly useful in telling our armorless troops exactly where to go to […]

No Armor

December 13th, 2004 · No Comments

The military has found a way to handle those whiny crybaby military guys who are such wussies that they don’t like fighting a war involving bombs, missiles and other nasty things without armor. They’ll court-martial them.

That’ll Teach ‘Em

November 30th, 2004 · 3 Comments

There are times when I think I couldn’t possibly be amazed anymore. And then I find something like this: The lead rounds followed an arcing trajectory that brought them to the ground four miles away.

I feel remiss in that there are so many things happening about which to blog and, as my last post noted, so little time for it. This morning, my wife was telling me that the news is reporting the terrific progress we’re making in Iraq. Let me say right out of the chute that the […]

A New Kind of War

November 9th, 2004 · No Comments

In April of 1775, Frederick MacKenzie complained in his diary, Our men had very few opportunities of getting good shots at the Rebels, as they hardly ever fired but under cover of a Stone wall, from behind a tree, or out of a house; and the moment they had fired they lay down out of […]

Osama bin Forgotten

October 1st, 2004 · No Comments

This says it all, when you think about it. I mean, the fact is, the Bush Presidency has been a sham all along. He has somehow conned people into thinking he’s for one thing, when, really, he’s doing another. Where’s bin Laden? BUSH WANTS OSAMA DEAD OR ALIVE . . . “I want justice. And […]

Two Articles Worth Reading

September 2nd, 2004 · 1 Comment

Two articles worth reading — since I can’t write anything significant until I finish my Federal Courts reading today — are found at AndrewSullivan.com. Sullivan is a self-proclaimed “pro-Reagan, pro-Contra, pro-SDI, pro-Gulf War conservative” who finds John Kerry “deeply troubling.” “The Miller Moment,” discusses a speech at the Republican National Convention by a purported Democrat, […]

bin Forgotten

August 25th, 2004 · No Comments

I was reading the ACT Blog and someone had posted a comment there stating that if Clinton had gotten bin Laden, we wouldn’t have the mess we have today. I couldn’t resist posting a comment: Someone above mentioned that “if Clinton had done the right thing” and “gotten bin Laden” we wouldn’t be in the […]
