... 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 →
Post-Korea and Beyond
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…

What's on your mind? Mind idioms are a meeting of the minds (a situation in which people have the same ideas and opinions, and find it easy to agree with each other). Or perhaps the better question should be, what is in your mind? I felt a Funeral, in my Brain BY EMILY DICKINSON I felt a... Continue Reading →
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...

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 →
Love this history from the Ole West!
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…

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was appealing a federal judge’s ruling allowing a challenge to her eligibility to run for reelection to proceed.

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 →
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...
