I just have a few minutes today.
I am off to take care of paperwork and orientation, after I was hired yesterday, part time, at a logistics company that needed my particular skills and abilities. Obviously it will effect my overall schedule a bit, but my hope is that as I will only be working 3-4 hours four days a week, I can get back on top of the podcast and get her going again.
Thanks for your patience!
Seventy-five years ago today, the Japanese cabinet, in the presence of the Emperor himself, voted to start a war with the US, Great Britain and the Netherlands. The Japanese had assurance from Nazi Germany that if war came to the Pacific, they too would join in the conflict by declaring war on the United States. One has to wonder if that assurance had never been given, whether or not Japan would have waited? In any case, a group of a few men, sitting in a room decided the fate of millions based on an idea that was clearly flawed with a grand strategy that failed to take into account the capabilities of the opponent. The price was steep. But totalitarianism was defeated.
It has been a year (tomorrow) since the San Bernardino attack was made by a pair of PLRI terrorists. IN that time, the FBI has faced a lot of difficulties and issues that forced us to look not only at the terrorists, but at ourselves and how far we are willing to allow the government to invade our privacy to “protect us” from the PLRI terrorists. The biggest question the FBI has been unable to answer so far, is whether or not the pair had help or if anyone had an idea of what they were planning to do? It seems far fetched that nobody had even a twinkling of it, but it is within the realm of possibilities. It seems like nobody had any idea that the OSU student was going to attack last week. If they did, they didn’t say anything. Read the rest of this entry
Back in 2014 I was honored to go along on the Central Valley Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. We covered it on the show at the time, and it was really an amazing three days. Spending that time with World War II, Korea and Vietnam Vets was an incredible experience. A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to speak to the Modesto Chapter (Major Hugh Moss) of the Daughters of the American Revolution about that experience with CV Honor Flight. Today’s audio is the speech I gave to the DAR folks on November 12th of this year.
The Central Valley Honor Flight is continuing to provide these trips and expanding them to Korean war and Vietnam war Veterans. They also are still looking for a Corporate Sponsor. It is 100% funded by donations, and every dollar helps. Please think about it as the year comes to an end and you need that last minute tax deduction. The CV Honor Flight could sure put that money to great use!
I did not vote for Trump (or Clinton), but I have been telling you for more than a year that he is not a conservative. Period. If you voted for him thinking that you were going to get the second coming of Reagan, I’m sorry, but you’re an idiot. The man’s entire CV has been one gigantic celebration of opportunism, not conviction (for the record, so has Hillary Clinton’s life been).
So if you’re upset that he is not going to “Lock Her Up,” it can only be because you forgot the first rule of politicians: Everything they say is a lie. If you actually believed him when he said that he would “lock her up,” then there is almost nothing that I can do to help you. Read the rest of this entry
