The Scalia Controversy – To Bork or Not to Bork, That Is the Question

This morning in February of 2016 I find myself struggling a bit with the question of whether the Republican-controlled Senate should unilaterally prevent President Obama from installing a replacement Supreme Court Justice to replace recently deceased Justice Antonin Scalia simply by refusing to initiate the accepted practice of confirmation hearings and “up-or-down” votes as Senate

The American Fighting Man

Although the “American Fighting Man” certainly has many different faces and wears many different uniforms, the Army Infantryman is (arguably) the “typical” Soldier that comes to the minds of most Americans.  But who is this guy?  After nearly 40 years of military service (almost 20 of that in the Infantry) I have a pretty good

What is Capitalism?

In 2008 Michelle Obama said “Someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”  Really?  If you believe that then you’re either a moron (likely) or a Communist (also probably likely.)

A couple o’ hundred thousand new voters in Florida, much less a couple million

Divide and Rule

Most of us have heard the term “divide and conquer” although we may not necessarily know exactly what it means. In military tactics “divide and conquer” can apply to defeating a large opposing force by breaking it into smaller, more easily defeated units. In everyday life “divide and conquer” can apply to solving a large,

Bust a Deal, Face the Wheel!

There seems to be some confusion at the moment (Tuesday, April 7th 2015) about where we currently stand on our negotiations with Iran on its nuclear weapons program (and that’s exactly what it is folks.) Have we signed a treaty with Iran? If not when do we expect to do that? If we do sign a
