Hero: SA Quentin Smythe

By | October 24, 2023

[October 24, 2023]  This is a true hero from South Africa.  Sgt Quentin Smythe won the Victoria Cross in the Western Desert.  This is the highest military decoration awarded for valor “in the face of the enemy” to members of the British Armed Forces and various Commonwealth countries (of which South Africa is one). Upon the outbreak of… Read More »

By | October 23, 2023

[October 23, 2023]  A few days ago, media personality Megyn Kelly interviewed Dave Marcus and Noah Pollak, journalists and political commentators, to discuss the hatred of Jews on American college campuses.  I like the interview for several reasons that will become more apparent below.  I recommend listening to this and other interviews on the moral stance of America. … Read More »

Letters to My Granddaughter, No. 31

By | October 22, 2023

[October 22, 2023]  It didn’t look like much.  It was old, with fading paint, rusty rims, worn-out seats, a cracked passenger window, missing window handles, and terrible gas mileage.  Shortly after starting High School as a sophomore, I finished my Driver’s Education and obtained my Texas Driver’s License.  A friendly neighbor sold me his old car, a 1953,… Read More »

Camel Jumping: Who Knew

By | October 20, 2023

[October 20, 2023]  Savage manliness?  Perhaps not.  Camel jumping in Yemen is more of an oddity than a “savage manly” sport … although there are some professional jumpers from the Azraniq tribe who would disagree.  The sport does require considerable strength and agility.  There is some opportunity to get hurt by a fall or the camel kicking the… Read More »

Combat-Proven Leadership

By | October 19, 2023

[October 19, 2023]  The photograph of the crew of the Boeing B-17 “The Memphis Belle” is iconic.  Led by USAAF Captain Robert Morgan, the crew flew 29 missions altogether during World War II.  I was fortunate to meet retired Colonel Robert Morgan nearly three decades ago and hear of his crew’s exploits and the combat-proven leadership he displayed.… Read More »

The Information War

By | October 18, 2023

[October 16, 2023]  In any war, there is always a parallel information war.  This has been true since the beginning of time.  Given our reliance on advanced technology, we can get information quickly.  The question is how accurate is that information.  In Israel’s war with Hamas, it is overwhelmingly clear that what we see coming from Hamas is… Read More »

It’s Time to Destroy the Palestinian Culture of Terrorism

By | October 17, 2023

[October 17, 2023]  When faced with an invader that propagates the atrocities we have seen in the recent Hamas incursion into Israel, the only solution is to utterly destroy their culture.  That means a massive and overwhelming force that exacts a brutal retribution upon them until they surrender unconditionally.  Ultimately, that means destroying the Palestinian culture of terrorism.… Read More »

Letters to My Granddaughter, No. 29

By | October 16, 2023

[October 16, 2023]  She had a great body, was content and cooperative, and had a sweet temperament.   And she seemed to like me.  Every afternoon after school, I visited her, visited her family, talked to her, and helped as best I could.  I was 11, and Bessy was 6, and she always seemed to appreciate me being there… Read More »

Veterans Affairs Promotes Abortion

By | October 15, 2023

[October 15, 2023]  Just now, coming to light, we are hearing that the Veterans Affairs is promoting abortion and suggesting men can get pregnant (link here).  A leaked VA video promotes abortions and more “medically accurate” terminology, such as “person who is pregnant” over pregnant women.  This action is another self-inflicted scandal that the VA has been embroiled… Read More »
