"It will not be doubted, that with reference either to individual, or National Welfare, Agriculture is of primary importance. In proportion as Nations advance in population, and other circumstances of maturity, this truth becomes more apparent; and renders the cultivation of the Soil more and more, an object of public patronage."
--George Washington, Eighth Annual Message to Congress, 1796

While Tiger Woods is the media’s Uh Oh! of the moment, there’s still two wars going on in which America is still involved. I know, surprised aren’t you? Iraq is mostly forgotten now since Obama declared EXIT!, though Biden is talking on the phone to the necessary people about the maybe upcoming elections, and bombs still go off and innocent people still die.
Afghanistan makes headlines still, but mostly in regard to Obama’s slooowwww decision-making process. If you don’t read… Continue
Hope all has been well for you this weekend! It has been mild here in Phoenix. It made for a glorious T-Day!
Drizzled a bit last night, but the cats didn't mind. Wasn't much water when they went out. Right now, they are being impatient waiting for Dianne to come and feed them! LOL
Hope those who travelled make it home OK. Take care, stay safe and warm/cool. Impeach Obama and...

It’s not true that the only good terrorist is a dead terrorist. Even dead terrorists aren’t good. But at least they’re dead. And that helps. But political correctness has possessed Washington. It’s so bad that even Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who’s done a great job in many other respects, parrots the cliché that “we can’t… Continue

Someone please give me one good reason why we shouldn't merge with America's Independent Party and increase our strength to take back our Republic rather than remain seperate and dissipate our strength?

Dewey Whetsell a longtime commercial fisherman, veteran fire fighter and fire chief, jazz musician, and poet from Alaska penned a very nice retort to all of those who would say Sarah Palin isn't the real deal, a true leader.
Those who follow Alaska politics know these stories well, but the rest of America should understand this as well.
I just received an email from a newly adopted soldier of mine thanking me for “taking time out of my busy day to send a package to us over here. It’s like Christmas every time we get mail”. Taking time? No, I’m giving time to just say thanks. Such a small amount of time and effort in thanks for all that our men and women in uniform do. I’d do so much more if it were at all possible.
Oliver North has a column up this week about giving thanks that I wish everyone in this country would… Continue
A LONG-TIME SUBMARINER, I thought I'd heard every possible description of a submerged operation until a group of teachers toured our attack submarine in San Diego.
One woman asked the petty officer what it's like steering a submarine underwater with only sonar for guidance. "Well, ma'am," he answered, "if you painted your car's windshield black, then drove down the freeway by listening out your window, it would be pretty close."

This morning was very unusual. First, I was rudely awakened by several police helicopters hovering nearby, then about 2am, I was snapped back into consciousness by some woman letting loose with a blood curdling scream! By the time I grabbed my gun and got to he door, it was all over. I hate being in the condition I am in! I cannot walk unassistted. f I had to protect anyone, we'd all be in trouble. The abilities of my youth are far distant memories. Being disabled and getting old…Continue

"It is the duty of every man to render to the Creator such homage, and such only, as he believes to be acceptable to him. This duty is precedent both in order of time and degree of obligation, to the claims of Civil Society. Before any man can be considered as a member of Civil Society, he must be considered as a subject of the Governor of the Universe."
--James Madison, A Memorial and Remonstrance, 1785

The Syrian Air Force has suffered major losses in the last year, as the aircraft and helicopters were unleashed on rebels (and civilian supporters) and took a beating. Of the 370 usable fixed wing war planes the Syrian Air Force had two years, about half are now out of action because of combat losses or wear and tear. Nearly two-thirds of the 360 helicopters are gone, for the same reasons.
