ELON MUSK IS VOTING GOP NEXT ELECTION

Why is the left so surprised and lighting up Twitter? The left known for their lies, aspersions, and unorthodox antics are throwing fireworks at Musk after he stated the following, "I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically – overwhelmingly. Like, I'm not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear.... Continue Reading →

The Devil in John Marshall

Old West Tales

Introduction

There was nothing easy in the process of creating a new country called the United States, but if we endeavor to understand that process, then it becomes more likely that we will better understand how we’ve arrived at our current state of affairs. The nation didn’t begin as a collection of states, of course. They were colonies, each one independently established as a business model and sent off to make money for the British Crown. By the time these colonists realized their general unhappiness with the mother country — and became resolute enough to do something about it, they had become entrenched in their “independent-mindedness” and would require a somewhat lengthy adjustment process to begin to work as a team.

With only an occasional willingness to work as a team, some may argue that the United States has never been “united” about much of anything. We evolved from small…

Is Putin sick? Or is this a game meant to lead us into thinking he is?

An oligarch close to the Kremlin was recorded on a tape saying that Putin is "very ill with blood cancer." The last time I checked there were unconfirmed reports stating that Putin has abdominal cancer and Parkinson's disease. Is this true, idle speculation or disinformation designed to make an erratic and paranoid dictator vulnerable? Is... Continue Reading →

You Do Not Have A Constitutional Right To Abortion People

The U.S. federal government is not built to give or even enumerate to the American people any “rights”. It’s built to protect liberty by staying within a clearly defined list of enumerated powers that give this federal government enough strength to bring about some order and stability to the union of states. The day-to-day governing was left, intentionally, to the states and their... Continue Reading →

Part 2 — Curiosity killed the cat

... but satisfaction brought him back. (Continued from yesterday) Missing in America: Curiosity Inquisitive-driven questions are vital for developing scientific thinking and the motivation to pursue scientific, technological, engineering, and mathematical (STEM) challenges.  America’s students are no longer curious (about anything) — which is a sad demonstration of America’s failed educational system.  America’s dismal education...

Part 1 — Curiosity killed the cat

... but satisfaction brought him back! On skepticism and Science “It seems to me what is called for is an exquisite balance between two conflicting needs: the most skeptical scrutiny of all hypotheses that are served up to us and, at the same time, a great openness to new ideas. Obviously, those two modes of... Continue Reading →

Marine Corps Artillery — Part 4

Fix Bayonets!

Post-Korea and Beyond

Post-Korea Reorganization

For U.S. Marines, the Korean Peninsula wasn’t the only dance hall. No sooner had HQMC directed the transfer of three battalions of the 10th Marines to the 11th Marines, than the rebuilding of the 10th Marines with new recruitments and artillery training began. In the mid-1950s, the 10th Marines played a pivotal role in the Lebanon Emergency, fleet training exercises, and deployments supporting NATO exercises in Norway, Greece, Crete, Gibraltar, the Caribbean, and West Indies. The Cold War was in full swing.

Between 1955 and 1965, Marine Corps artillery battalions trained with new weapons and maintained their readiness for combat. No one in the Marine Corps wanted to return to the bad old days of the Truman administration. Should the plague of war revisit the United States, the Marine Corps intended to meet every challenge by maintaining a high state of combat readiness. Artillery Battalions…

Sex Trafficking in America

Sexual slavery exists in America because sex sells. When some people hear about sex trafficking in America they usually think of Asian and Eastern European women being brought into the States, but it's actually 10 times more likely for an American girl to be trafficked inside the U.S. Further, almost 300,000 American children are at...

What’s Wrong With Jill Biden?

Surely when we consider Jill Biden's education and clinical work, she must have been aware of, very sensitive to, knowledgeable of, and protective of the students whose limitations rendered them incapable of higher function. She should be schooled enough and capable of detecting, perhaps even diagnosing, thought and speech disorders, dissociative thinking, and incoherent ramblings.... Continue Reading →

A Black Speck

Love this history from the Ole West!

Old West Tales

A black speck appears against the sky, and it is plain that it moves. … Another instant and man and horse burst past our excited faces and go winging away like the belated fragment of a storm. —Mark Twain (Roughing it, 1872)

Roughing It was a semi-autobiographical book written by Samuel Clemens as Mark Twain, written between 1870-and 71 and published in 1872.  The book follows a young Samuel Clemens through the Wild West during the period 1861 – 1867, and in it, he offers us a flavor of the excitement of the Pony Express.  The very name calls up thrilling images of horse and rider racing through hostile territories and across treacherous terrain — even though the Pony Express lasted for less than two years (from April 1860 to October 1861).  Plus, the Pony Express was only one of several private express companies carrying mail.

Much of what we…

Challenging Margorie Taylor Greene’s House Seat BUT “Judge rules that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene can run for reelection”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was appealing a federal judge’s ruling allowing a challenge to her eligibility to run for reelection to proceed. Keep in mind if the left had won this case even if you do not like MTG or what she stands for - this puts every candidate going forward of both parties on... Continue Reading →

Violent protests over the Supreme Court’s leaked draft on Roe v. Wade.

A molotov cocktail was thrown into a pro-life organization's building. This past weekend mobs were protesting at Catholic churches calling them hypocrites and disparaging remarks were made regarding the eucharist. Unfortunately, the President is not moving on these protests and showing his disapproval. His silence speaks to his approval as silence many times speaks louder... Continue Reading →

Slavery — A frank conversation

Introduction Odious.  Hated.  Vile.  Loathsome.  Detestable.  Abominable.  These words describe slavery — the brutal and immoral practice of forcing someone into servitude.  In the official definition of slavery, the editors of dictionaries, and many scholars, attempt to expand our understanding by writing such things as, “For hundreds of years in the United States, wealthy landowners...
