An Empty Cart Rattles Loudly



I’m back from the mini-vacation to Spokane. Like most vacations, it was a mixed bag of excitement and meh… On the downside, I did not survive my trip on the RMS TiTanic. But my wife and child did…

Watching the Korean handshake was surreal. Frankly, I am still unsure of what to believe. Every instinct in my Cold War blood screams that it’s a trick. But… at the same time, what if it isn’t. What if I have grown so old, so inflexible, that I have outlived my usefulness? Would that constitute a joke? Read the rest of this entry

Daylight Savings Time



The change to Daylight Savings Time is just hours away. It doesn’t bother me, then again, I am not tied to a strict schedule. But there are reasons that I prefer it.

The President pardoned the submarine sailor who took unauthorized photos of his boat. The reason is fuzzy to me, but it seems to be that Hillary Clinton did it too, so why punish this sailor for doing “the same thing?” Well… for starters, it wasn’t the “same thing.” For seconds, a Nuclear Machinist Mate First Class Petty Officer is a tad bit more important to the National Security than the Secretary of State… yes, I said that. Secretary of State is a “non-job.”

The Seattle Seahawks released Richard Sherman and now he has signed with the 49ers. People up here aren’t sure what to think about that. The Angels new $uper$tar isn’t doing very well…

So… let’s scenario rosily and think for a minute or two about what could be done in the event of a French… I mean Soviet… er… Nork Nuclear attack…

THE NUKE MAP


The whole concept of a Government shutdown is a study in how much we have strayed from the ideals of limited government and personal liberty. The government was never intended to be a weapon against the people. But what effect does a shutdown have? Well… for some of us, a pretty big one. And it’s not as easy as saying, “Oh, you’ll get it back when they agree to a budget…”


This past week, I got asked a question: “Why Constitution Thursday?”

It’s a question that I love to answer. Mainly because of all the things I did in radio, I am most proud of Constitution Thursday. I’ve always said that long after Plausibly Live or The Dave Bowman Show are done and gone, I will keep doing Constitution Thursday. It’s purpose will remain and the need for it isn’t get any less.

So here’s my answer…
