Having written a number of books over the years, I was asked to write a review of a new book written by Howard L. Hibbard, who having volunteered to serve in Vietnam, came home like many of us, to countrymen who turned their backs on those who answered the call to duty. Whether the call […]
Anybody else got gallows humor thought about that coffee cup? We always figured that the presidents — from Washington to Obama — had a pretty good idea of what they were supposed to be doing and would try to do it. This guy? Not so much. No unifying theme except his ego, insecurity, greed, and pathological […]
(Note At a time and place long ago, I became fascinated by and involved in Neurolinguistic Programming or NLP. It’s still around, and it has a lot of applications so it’s worth familiarizing yourself with it. But it has drawbacks, and people looking for ways to manipulate others should stay away. It can become the […]
The current spectacle of the NFL football players denigrating the American flag, disrespecting the National Anthem, and throwing mud in the face of the first responders who protect the American citizens from mayhem, crime, and anarchy – the police and law enforcement officers across the country, is despicable and anti-American. Additionally, such behavior is tantamount […]

“I know that a lot of our veterans count on it.” Says Johanna Wagner, the Senior Program Manager for Vets.
“Once Upon A Time, In a Galaxy Far, Far Away” the left wing of the political spectrum were the vanguard of opposing the globalist warfare matrix. The anti-war movement changed the world in the 1960’s and stopped the bloody carnage in Viet Nam. Judging by today’s standards, that world is forgotten and the replacement culture […]
Veterans helping veterans – struggling vets have been moving into the new “La Casa de Flores” – also known as “Camp Flores” in Santa Maria.
Are you disappointed with Donald Trump’s bellicose continuing with the deployment in Afghanistan? Well, if you are not; you should be. Predicting a non-ideological President, who prides himself on making pragmatic decisions, raises prognostication to a new level of mystical proportions. Instilling hope during an election campaign seldom translates into dynamic action on every pledge […]
World War II veteran Benjamin Cooper has been telling his war story for the last 27 years.
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.–MacBeth. Act 5. Scene 2 “That was some weird shit.” GWB, 20 Jan 2017 Chair-leg biting, glossolalia-styled, pointless […]

It’s truly time to pin the blame on the parties/individuals responsible for, on a near daily basis, bringing the world to the brink of nuclear war in World War III. Because of the serious nature of their constant provocations, it is no longer acceptable for these mysterious, cowardly, and elusive figures to find peace and […]
Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge, Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs And towards our distant rest began to trudge. Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind; Drunk with fatigue; deaf even […]
I am not here because I am a great soldier. I am here because I served with great soldiers. This piece says more about why those of us who were Soldiers, or Sailors, or Marines or Airmen were as good as we were — not because we were great but because we served surrounded by […]

In a hugely symbolic victory of sound economics and practicality triumphing over stupid, backwards and idiotic sectarian violence, religious, and ethnic discrimination, the French oil refining company Total has successfully brokered a joint oil drilling/natural gas development deal with Qatar (Sunni dominated) and Iran (Shia dominated) as joint partners. Only a few weeks ago, Saudi […]
It is now a sign of success and well adjustment to be completely and totally sociopathic in the modern day developed first world. If one exhibits any semblance of humanity or compassion, one is considered altogether weak and not fully adapted to the consumer-driven culture of the current age, where not only are articles of […]
On Sunday two World War II veterans celebrated with friends and family at the Eagle’s Club in Merrill, as they were each surprised with a Quilt of Valor.
