Happy 67th !

9/18/47 — a date that prob’ly only blue-suiters bother to remember. I remember, ’cause I was exactly one month old when the USAF was born (some say snatched from the Army’s motherly embrace). — DougM, LtCol, USAF (ret.)

Happy Constitution Day

Or, there’s always the now-traditional photo-bomber-in-chief optics ~ source ~ “Our Constitution reflects the values we cherish as a people and the ideals we strive for as a society,” Obama said …. “It secures the privileges we enjoy as citizens, but also demands participation, responsibility, and service to our country and to one another.” [more] [...]

What’s in a name?

What do you call this group of bigoted, genocidal, totalitarian, mass-murdering rapists, pimps, child abusers, cutthroats, terrorists, and slavers? Is it ISIS or ISIL? The French government has found its solution. … The formal name of the group is al-Dawla al-Islamiya al-Iraq al-Sham. Take the “D,” an “A,” and the “Sh,” and that’s where the [...]

So which is it?

Tee time or fundraiser? President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, [...]

The Perfidy Storm™

The homework-eating dogs of the Obamunist-led coup d’état are voracious. If one thought we’d reached pretty much the bottom of the snake pit with the IRS emails destruction-of-evidence thing, one would be wrong. Two more examples have arisen: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over [...]

Wait, what?

The New York Times (albeit just an op-ed) has stumbled into what might be termed rationality about the politics of “assault weapons.” Yeah, go read it. Seriously. While you’re at it, here’s a good review of that op-ed. Read that, too. Go ahead, I’ll wait. (What? Dunno. Mebbe they’ve come to realize that their circulation [...]

WTF, you blithering jackassjenny? I mean … WtF’nF

(Caution: spew alert) Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if Republicans win the Senate. [— Nancy Pelosi: more; but, nah, don't bother] If I were USIL*, I’d be pissed.I mean, all that slaughter and genocide and slavery to make yourselves the number-one threat to civilization, all … all for noth-thing! ______ [...]

all the TEA in China

This article points out some parallels to issues that concern Constitutional Americans. It’s a good read and contains a useful perspective about China and Hong Kong, but I’m just interested in the familiar politics-of-parties problem. Just days before China was set to deliver its edict on electoral reform in Hong Kong, Beijing’s most senior official [...]

The entire speech was based on lies*

I’m not gonna surgically parse the President’s speech or rend my garments and wail. Let’s leave that to the experts/pundits/sycophants/apologists/racists and to those that think it will make a difference and to those who think anybody’ll read it. No, I’ll limit my comments to three adjacent points within the speech: • “…ISIL is not ‘Islamic.’ [...]

turnin’ over anti-Semite rocks

Cruz goes into the lion’s den wretched hive*. I give ‘im a *clank* for this one. “I’ve certainly encountered audiences that disagreed with a particular point of view. But this virulent display of hatred and bigotry was remarkable, and considerably different from anything I’ve previously encountered,” Cruz said, just a few hours after his pro-Israel [...]
