Doesn’t it seem strange that after Thanksgiving, Navy Blue Thursday, Black Friday, small business Saturday, Football Sunday and Cyber Monday, we finally get around to “Giving Tuesday?” Even the idea of giving has become commercialized to the point where it needs its own day and marketing campaign…
Some members of the so-called “Migrant Caravan” decided to charge the border at San Ysidro, only to be repulsed with Tear Gas. Tear gas is forbidden to use in a war so this cannot be an “invasion.” But where do we go from here? Nobody has any answers, just a bunch of angry yelling…
Russia and Ukraine are at it again. Russia is just going to keep slicing off pieces of salami until it gets what it wants or they cross a red line that actually matters. The real question is whether or not we are willing to send our men and women into combat against Russia for Ukraine?
The landing on Mars reminds us that the spirit of exploration is alive and well, even if the challenges remaining to be overcome seem daunting…
There’s a remarkable thing that happens when old friends meet up for the first time in decades. The reunion isn’t until tomorrow, but three of us sat down on Saturday afternoon at a local watering hole and it was almost like we’d just gotten off duty 31 years ago. well, except for the part where I didn’t actually know what was actually in the bottles of Listerine back then… More than three decades ago, our ship helped to change the world. Our presence, our mission, or accomplishment was seen in the fall of the Berlin wall and the Soviet Union. We were a part of that. The amazing thing to me is that all these years later, our beloved Michigan was once again, part of changing the world for the better.
We live in a world of instate gratification. whether you talk about the “Marshmallow Test” or the way we watch television, we have to have it and we have to have it RIGHT NOW! Nowhere is this more apparent than in our “debate” – which it isn’t – over our immigration system. It’s degenerated into nothing more than a pointless argument. Both sides are entrenched and will not budge on any point, no matter how trivial.
There has been much ado over the recent District Court ruling that put a temporary restraint on the Presidents Executive Order denying Federal money to Sanctuary Cities. And in that ado, it’s pretty easy to figure out who is on which side of the aisle. The Left is celebrating it, the Right is condemning it.
But the real question is deeper. Did anybody actually read what the Judge wrote?
And if you did, don’t you kinda think that he has… you know… a point?
Of course not, Dave! He’s an Obama campaign money bundler, so absolutely nothing he says can be trusted, Dave.
He clearly hates trump and loves illegal immigration, Dave!
He’s evil, Dave!
I’m never gonna listen to your show again because you’re secretly anti-Trump and probably antifa too, Dave!
Except…. what would I – an originalist and a constitutionalist – have decided if I had been on the Bench? What if it was for the greater good? You know… upholding and defending that Constitution thingee…?
