Its Free

Its Free Fiscal irresponsibility is rampant and discussed at length in previous blog posts, but I thought it prudent to bring it up again as the timing of the debt ceiling and Federal Fiscal Year end approach. Yes, both sides are certainly to blame. Republicans have long abandoned conservative fiscal policies and Democrats never had… Continue reading Its Free

The Sum of the Parts…

The Sum of The Parts… The saying goes: “The Whole is greater than the sum of its parts”, but if you don’t change the core ingredients, the whole may be different, but not substantially. The change that is necessary to alter this destructive path we are currently watching unfold is a wholesale change to the… Continue reading The Sum of the Parts…

Divisiveness is Easy

Divisiveness is Easy I suspected the first year of the Biden regime would be tough, but I truly thought people would start to pay attention as policy failures mounted. I was wrong. People seem to be distracted by the wrong things. Masks and injections rule the day, but voting integrity, border security, foreign policy, the… Continue reading Divisiveness is Easy

Planning and Execution

Planning and Execution Covid, Afghanistan, and Ida all appear as recent examples of planning gone wrong. If the planning fails, the best execution can’t usually fix it. The first two have been discussed at length and quickly devolve into political name calling. That is counterproductive for everyone. Think about Ida. We heard about it several… Continue reading Planning and Execution

OP’s

OP’s Anybody who smoked knew somebody who smoked OP’s. There was always one, always. For those that never smoked, OP’s is an acronym or euphemism for “Other Peoples’”. It got so it was a descriptor as in: “Look out, here comes OP”. It was not flattering, it meant they were a leech. It seems to… Continue reading OP’s

Another Candidate

Another Candidate I received an article about an officer’s (I think a Marine Captain – maybe retired) assessment of Afghanistan. The gist of the article was how the preparation of the Afghan Army was a charade and the reporting concerning its progress was one big giant bureaucratic (and corresponding mountain of paperwork) lie. It mentions… Continue reading Another Candidate

Does Socialism Work?

Does Socialism Work? Who cares if it works, or not, the question is do we want it? For most hardworking men and women in this country, the answer is a resounding no! Some have argued, to me, that we already have a type of Socialism in this country (e.g. Medicare) and while it is hard… Continue reading Does Socialism Work?

GOP Endorsements

GOP Endorsements Retired Captain Sam Brown is running for a Senate seat in Nevada. I know little about the man but am often curious when people with limited or zero political experience run for office. To start with a Congressional Senate run is aggressive, but good for him. I wish him the best. As I… Continue reading GOP Endorsements

Entitlements are not Rights

Entitlements are not Rights You are not guaranteed food and lodging by the Constitution, these necessities are not rights, these are things you work for and earn. As a society we try to educate our youth in an effort to provide them the tools they need to earn money so they can get shelter and… Continue reading Entitlements are not Rights

Get Better Advice

Get Better Advice A Republican Governor recently said, concerning the “jab rate” in the state “I’ve done all I know how to do…” and this exemplifies the problem with government and bureaucrats. They refuse to listen and don’t make any effort to converse. It is all about a message. Since the Governor appears to lack… Continue reading Get Better Advice
