  Thought of the Day “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” * * Mobs always raise a Caesar to be king and then they worship him as divine. Your rights restrain your Caesars from oppressing you.

The Forever Wars

    People Ask Me "When will the war in Ukraine be over?" I reply, "How long did they stretch out Afghanistan?" It's all about money - lots of money. This is the situation (below) and it has not changed significantly. The Russians will push forward a mile or two here and there and the Ukrainians will do the same. Small gai...

The Dirty 51

  The poem begins not where the knife enters but where the blade twists.   The Dirty 51 (NY POST) I hope that we see a reckoning with the Dirty 51, but given the record of justice in America where progs are involved, I strongly doubt it. One of the most galling aspects of the Hunter Biden laptop saga is that the 51 former intelli...

  NATO - Interesting moves Leslie Eastman writes for the LI Blog. I don't know if any of you know Leslie. She has a son just finishing his plebe (first) year at the USAF Academy. She's a very bright lady and wrote an interesting article (linked above) about Swiss thoughts of standardizing equipment with NATO. It wouldn't mean that Switze...

In fact, I suspect that it is not, but I present it for your personal evaluation. 1- Has the source been reliable in the past? 2- Does the source have access to the information presented?

    The Dismal American Economy The Democrats pretend that none of us can remember back to when President Trump was in office, the economy was booming and fuel was less than half of what it costs today. Inflation, over the past year, has gone from conspiracy theory to "a transient problem, to "no big deal", to ignored, and now...

The Venezuelan Drug Trade

26
  In 2013, Nicolás Maduro became president of one of the world’s most important cocaine hubs, inheriting a unique drug trafficking eco-system where the line between the underworld and the state was completely blurred. Since then, both the drug trade and state involvement in it has strengthened as Venezuela took its first, tentative steps to...

  Gargoyle on the Salisbury Cathedral - England   Tolerance You became tolerant of their degeneracy, only for them to become intolerant of your values. You pretended they were your equal only for them to tell you that they were your superior. There is no greater myth than the proposition of an amicable coexistence between o...

  If you want baby formula, you need to go on government welfare. The federal government has a monopoly on baby formula due to the socialist spending programs that brought you WIC, etc. The US government shouldn't manage baby formula nationally. They can't run that any better than they were able to run the Mustang Ranch whorehouse that ...

    News of the Moon (News) (h/t Claudio) For the first time, scientists have grown plants in soil from the moon collected by NASA's Apollo astronauts. Researchers had no idea if anything would sprout in the harsh moon dirt and wanted to see if it could be used to grow food by the next generation of lunar explorers. The re...

  What I feel when I fill the truck... Pilot, Love, and Flying J are warning of diesel fuel shortage in the Northeast as fuel is being sent out of the country to Europe to offset dependence on Russian energy.   A Marshall Plan for Ukraine? Likely not. Geography and geopolitics dictate a different reconstruction model. I...

Welcome to Friday the 13th   Burger Wars Culvers Locations vs In n Out Burger Locations - Battle of the Burgers. To me, there is no comparison. Culvers is exceptionally over-priced...they're proud of their food. In n Out serves burgers, fries and drinks - that's it. And they do that well. The part of Arizona where I live (dark bl...

Go West, Young Man!

23
  The Way West There was the prequel to Yellowstone called 1883. I thought about that on May 10, a couple of days ago, but didn't blog about it. On May 10, 1869, the American Transcontinental Railroad was completed, and the golden spike was driven at Promontory Point, Utah. In the series, they did mention that they could have just tak...

  Captioned: T-90 knocked out by the 117th Territorial Defense Brigade near Sumy, Ukraine. The banner says “Russian ship”.   Who was Ashli Babbitt? It's interesting that the leftists are still howling about January 6, wherein the FBI incited a crowd and the Capitol Police opened the doors and invited people in for a self-g...

  Bitcoin Bitcoin fell over 50% in value from its peak, and critics continue to question its intrinsic value. I don't hate bitcoin, but, old man that I am, I prefer gold. Pay me in gold and I'll decide what to do from there.   Bosch Legacy (TV Series) This is a follow-on to the Bosch TV Series Crime Drama that stretched...
