One of the things that’s been bothering me about this presidential campaign is the constant droning of so and so doesn’t have any foreign policy experience. Where is it written that a presidential candidate has to have “foreign policy experience”? How much foreign policy experience did Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton or George W. Bush have […]

I’ve have to admit I’m stoked! Yes I still have reservations about John McCain, I don’t like him, I don’t trust him but Sarah Palin is the real deal. She’s a solid conservative; she’s intelligent, articulate and charismatic. She has a proven record as a reformer; she’s battled corruption and pork barrel spending and she […]
My top picks in no particular order: Fred Thompson Michael Steele Sarah Palin Carly Fiorina Michelle Malkin has more… Update: Foxnews says it’s Palin. Whew… I’m not sure what to say. Personally, I would have preferred Michael Steele or Fred Thompson… That said Palin’s a great choice, grass roots conservatives are energized/excited by it, inside […]
Here an interesting video from Mikko Hyppönen at F-Secure that talks about one of the common misconceptions about computer crime and viruses. A lot of people think that since we haven’t had a major virus outbreak like the Melissa or Sasser worms in quite awhile the situation is getting better… As Mikko points out it’s […]
Via Blackfive: The Value of Service Commentary by Lt. Col. Mark Murphy 354th Maintenance Group deputy commander EIELSON AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska — I learned a big lesson on service Aug. 4, 2008, when Eielson had the rare honor of hosting President Bush on a refueling stop as he traveled to Asia . It was […]
What are your impressions of the Democratic National Committee Convention so far? Mine can be summed up in one word… YAWN. It’s 2004 all over again… There are no ideas, no positive agenda and no vision for the future. So far their entire agenda can be summed up as we’re miserable, Bush sucks and John […]
A lot has already been written about this so I’ll keep my remarks short… I agree wholeheartedly with the LPGA’s decision. English is the dominate language in this country and if you want to succeed in business you have to be able to speak the language. Make no mistake about it professional golf is a […]
I linked to this previously but Michael Totten’s “The Truth About Russia in Georgia” is the most comprehensive report I’ve seen on the conflict – it’s a must read for anyone who wants to know what really happened – and it deserves much greater prominence than I gave it earlier. The Truth About Russia in […]
If you haven’t read the Op-Ed by by Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman in today’s Wall Street Journal you should. I don’t agree with Graham or Lieberman often but they’re spot-on here. Russia’s Aggression Is a Challenge to World Order By Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman, Wall Street Journal, August 26, 2008; Page A21 In the wake […]
The Democratic National Convention kicked of in Denver last night… All I can think to say is so what? In all honesty I’m more interested in what’s happening in Georgia than I am with what’s happening in Denver. If last night was any indication this convention is going to be about the cult of personality […]
I really should write something… Unfortunately, most of what’s in the news at the moment bores me to tears. I couldn’t care less about the Olympics and I’m sick of the presidential campaign… Cassandra at Villainous Company pretty much sums up my mood here. I am deeply concerned about Russia’s assault on Georgia… I’m not […]
I just finished adding about 30 photos of the “Aluminum Overcast” to the photo gallery. The Aluminum Overcast is one the few World War II era B-17 Flying Fortresses still flying. The photos were taken on August 19, 2008 at Waterbury-Oxford airport in Oxford, CT. For more information about the Aluminum Overcast visit b17.org.
I’m deeply troubled by the news out of Georgia, I’m not a expert on the region and I’m not going to try and play one on the internet. What I am doing to do to point you to two excellent posts by C. Blake Powers at Blackfive.net. The first is titled “No, It’s Not Good […]
Damn, Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor and comedian Bernie Mac passed away today. Bernie Mac was a class act and a great comedian I’m going to miss him… Rest In Peace Bernie.
Everything old is new again or here we go again… Back to the 70’s. Every time I listen to democrats in talk about energy policy I feel I’ve been transported back to the 1970’s. Admittedly some of of their suggestions like making sure your tires are properly inflated or getting regular tuneups are basic commonsense […]
