Robert E. Lee and all the “Will”ing Boogey Men

George Will writes what amounts to a review of Allen C. Guelzo’s biography, Robert E. Lee: A Life in the Washington Post. The review and apparently the book are disparaging of Lee. Considering who Lee was and the fruitful historical mindsets who have lionized him, both black and white: (Churchill, Eisenhower, both Roosevelts as well ...

Roach, Harris, Biden

Hal Roach and Kamala Harris, et al. Our political gang of little rascals

Kamala Harris, former courtesan, Senator, and present Vice President (of the United States) has a new gig when she leaves politics. Or whatever it is she is in. She can be the 21st-century comeback of the old Hal Roach, “The Little Rascals.” She can have her own production company: Old Happy Hookers  Bedtime Boogies.. She ...

Statue of Liberty, Immigration, Illegal Immigration, Humanity

Lady Liberty’s welcome mat does not apply to illegal immigrants

TEXAS: In 1883, poet Emma Lazarus wrote the Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World poem, welcoming European immigrants to America.  To this day, Lazarus’ poem is on the base of the statue located on Liberty Island in New York. The Big Apple of liberal graft and corruption. Where everything Lady Liberty stands for – freedom ...

History, histrionics, public education all leading to a mess of mendacity

“Divorce usually isn’t a good idea, and that’s especially true of a nearly 250-year-old continental nation.” Rich Lowry, National Review. This sort of pseudo-historical gibberish is the kind of nonsense that finds its way into the public schooling system with its unschooled “educators.” It is one reason there is rising a wave of dissent against ...

Scheller, Afghanistan, Military, Pentagon, Purge, Milley

The Marines: We will fight for right and freedom, and keep our honor clean

TEXAS: J.D. Vance almost hit the nail on the head when he referred to Marine Lt. Colonel Stuart Scheller as a political prisoner. Actually, Scheller is an apolitical prisoner. When it is Scheller’s superiors, Milley, Austin, and Biden who should be the political prisoners. Furthermore, Secretary of State Blinken could be added with a little ...

Lt. Colonel Scheller trapped in Wonderland by a fool cat and ugly queen.

TEXAS: Lt. Colonel Stuart Scheller was deployed six times to Afghanistan. He served honorably and performed his sworn duty to God and Country. As much as his commitment to his fellow countrymen was executed well,  as any man who served will tell you, is that he made his Mama and Daddy proud. (Soldiers of Valor: ...

No longer seeking a few good men – any old male-like morph will do

TEXAS: The Marine Corps. is no longer seeking a few good men. Instead what we have is one good man. And he is being attacked by a bunch of bad men. Bad men giving new meaning to the term “mean green.” The same men have taken much from the esprit de corps. The good man ...

MacArthur, Mitchell, Scheller, Soldiers, Valor

Soldiers of Valor: Generals Billy Mitchell, MacArthur, Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller

TEXAS: What do Colonel Billy Mitchell, Lt. Colonel Stuart Scheller, and even General of the Army Douglas MacArthur, have in common? They all recognized incompetency in the ranks, not below them, but above them. Billy Mitchell and Douglas MacArthur stood within military law with their concerns for God and country. But their obligations were to ...

Madison, 2A, Locke and Loaded

In today’s America, James Madison’s 2A “Lock and Load” ain’t antiquated.

TEXAS: James Madison, our fourth president, and the original author of the Bill of Rights.  Madison had concerns with the 2nd amendment, and the proposal for it was simple.  An armed populace would be the greatest deterrent to the federal government’s invasion of the states—the free and independent states. Madison was somewhat for a federal ...

Shots, House, Humor

HUMOR: Shots on the US House for everyone – from football to refugees

TEXAS: Will Americans stranded in Afghanistan be allowed to return to the United States if they haven’t been vaccinated? After all, if college and pro football are requiring it for “fans,” then unimportant taxpayers overseas on a Taliban vacation dang sure need to “take one for the team.” After all, universities and pro football teams ...

Home, Going Home,

Americans trapped in Afghanistan: What it means to go home

TEXAS: Right now the news is filled with the idea of getting Americans, and the Afghanis who helped Americans, home. Our leadership says American’s are not stranded in the sand. But they can’t get home. A contemporary author whose books I have read more than once, Dr. James Everett Kibler, writes keenly on home and ...

Dixie, Texas, Conservative, Domenech

Ben Domenech: Flashing Federalism Deep in Dixie, Fools only Fools

TEXAS: The conservative wannabees or ersatz conservatives or whatever, love to denigrate the South.  Many Southerners allow them such slights. I don’t. It has always been an amazing feature of the “naming class” taxonomists to cover a true thought with a misnomer of fact. There are many examples, but one struck me recently as I ...

National Anthem, America, Star Spangled Banner

Dear mother: I have not yet begun to lose the fight for America’s soul

TEXAS: The fight for America’s soul is over. There are no troops understanding why they have lost. The few who attempted to fight have been overrun or corrupted by mother earth. Only the few who were willing to fight ever understood the difference between The National Anthem and The Star-Spangled Banner They will continue to ...
