Thoughts from a Proud Veteran

Every year around (November) this time, I post something that commemorates Veterans' Day. I am a Veteran -- a member of an elite group of Americans. Veterans day is very special to me. A Nation that honors her Veterans, honors her heritage. This Veterans day please stop and reflect. Honor a Veteran by saying to (S)he: Thank you for your service.

Whois Afraid of North Korea

Obama_Kim_Jong_Un_Mirror.jpgWith all of the saber-rattling, it appears that the old battle of good v. evil, Cold War is rearing its ugly head...at least as far as North Korea is concerned. The NORTH is proclaiming not only as having nuclear capabilities, but is actively broadcasting its intent to employ said weaponry [WMD] toward South Korea and Japan.

On the other hand, the US has responded with a show of strength in the form of Naval battle groups, intelligence analysis, and media communication. As a consequence, the possibility of WAR is quite real. Diplomacy can be an effective tool, yet that path has been visited previously. This week's show picks apart the question: Whois Afraid of North Korea?

Celebrating the 2013 Obama Inauguration

Inauguration Day, Jan 21st 2013The American people have spoken; an African-American has been reelected to a second term as President of the United States. What a historic event! Besides the ruffles, flourishes, and regalia, the President (as well as the Nation) faces some difficult challenges.

[Namely] Immigration, the domestic economy, fiscal deficit reduction, and GUN Safety. January 20th is also the celebration date of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King. So lets join in with Barack Obama, Joseph Biden, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. [Dr.] Biden along with the American people to celebrate this momentous occasion at the National Mall of Washington, D.C.

2012 was the Year of Guns Outta Control

The old adage of Guns don't kill people, People kill people...just doesn't cut it anymore. Our children were murdered within the most sacred of all public arenas --our schools. People are fed up; the President is Mad! We must have a National Discussion about Gun safety; strong and corrective action is needed now!

While preserving our 2nd Amendment rights, it is possible to support and defend, yet also preserving the life, liberty, and prosperity of all citizens. The year 2012 brought over 90,000 shootings. Most infamous were the Colorado movie theater shooting, the Trayvon Martin shooting, and of course...SANDY HOOK! My message is this: LET'S HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT GUNS!

Proud 2Ba Military Veteran

I Am a Military Veteran. The pride that I feel has not always been as strong as it is now. Why? Maybe it's because I'm older, smarter, wiser, and more mature. Or perhaps it's because the United States may (soon) begin an exit strategy from her involvement in the most enduring and longest period of continuous warfare within her +200 year history. As a Veteran, I can safely say that war has no victors...only victims. Today, I salute my fellow Military Veterans and say:  Thank You for Your Service!
