American Ignorance, Russia and Islam

Why would Russia not ally with Iran?

Muslim Distribution

Anti-Russian Sunni are on Russia’s southern border and within the Republics of the former USSR that Putin would like to rebuild. Shia Iran would love to destroy Sunni islam and rebuild the Persian Empire. Russia would love permanent warm-water ports on the Mediterranean (Shia Syria) and the Indian Ocean (Shia Iran). Put an Iranian ally in charge of that? Why not? By foolishly destroying Iraq, an ignorant America destroyed the only regional opponent capable of stopping Iran.

Together Russia & Iran can rid the region of Sunnis; doing so is in […]

Memorial Day 2017

Two of my three kids were born in the mid-1990s. America – the country that defeated the two most modern and powerful military forces in history, across the entire planet, on land, sea and air, in 3-1/2 years – has been in ground combat with illiterate, unorganized, untrained, ill-equipped savages for nearly their entire lives. They have no recollection of an America not at war.

This is shameful.

My dad was born in 1912, raised a Quaker, and fought in the Pacific Theater of WW2. Why? He was an American. My mom was born in 1930, orphaned at 5, raised […]

American Inflection Point

One had hoped that winning at the ballot box would be all that was required to save Western Civilization. It increasingly is looking as though that was only the end of the beginning.

230 years of peaceful transition had to end one day. This is why I post supporting secession: These people cannot – will not – refuse to be – be reasoned with. Logic, facts and history can find no purchase.

From this vantage point the street is looking worse than the summer of ’68. And it’s only the beginning of February. We seem to be at the […]

America, Mexico and Drugs

Having grown up and lived in SoCal nearly all of my 62 years, and having made a few trips to Mexico (camping in Baja, hotelling in Acapulco, day trips to Tijuana & Mexicali), it has always bothered me that the country is so corrupt, backward, illiterate and crime-ridden. There is no excuse for it.

The Mexican illegals with whom the American Middle Class comes into contact are, for the most part, hardworking men & women. The guy standing at the end of the freeway off-ramp selling oranges or cherries or flowers is never a white guy or a black guy […]

Protests, Riots & Law

We need to stop being so accepting of and lenient with violent protestors. Charging 217 in DC with felony rioting is a good start – but it’s generations overdue.

Talk, walk, march & speak. Blog & pamphlet. That’s part of our heritage & most will support doing so – or should. Or at least not complain. It’s our right as Americans under the Rule of Law.

But setting fires? Destroying cars? Breaking windows? Blocking highways? Nope. Occupy the office of a university president? Burn up a limo that is the livelihood of some blue collar worker? Go to prison.

Without […]
