  • Poor baby; he’s so ‘unfairly treated’

        The appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Prosecutor over the Trump/Russia investigation certainly got the attention of the beleaguered president.
        It didn’t take long before he was feeling sorry for himself, and saying that he was being “unfairly treated,” which was actually a familiar refrain from the campaign. He’d often complain of his “treatment” for one reason or another.

  • Rebuild our Navy

        The cruise missile attack on a Syrian airbase early last month was amazing. In a precision attack, the base was hit by 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles in 60 seconds. According to a Wikipedia article, 60 missiles were launched, but one fizzled and fell in the sea.
        Syria was able to resume launching air strikes from the base but the advance warning we gave the Russians, so they could get their personnel out of the way, also allowed the Syrians to shield some of their aircraft, reducing the damage that was done.

  • Be safe out there

        National Safe Boating Week is May 20-26. 
        As with any such designation, the week is to serve as a reminder of what is important all year long. With Memorial Day upon us, marking the unofficial beginning of the summer season, it’s always important to take note of safety precautions when out on your boats and other crafts.
        The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) is using this week to remind all boaters to stay safe this summer, and always wear a life jacket while on the water.

    Faith, family and freedom

        Having choices through elections is an American standard; preferring one choice does not necessarily mean that we are adamantly or rudely opposed to another.  It simply means that we prefer one for specific reasons and we make that choice. 

  • For many, it’s Watergate all over again

        Last week, Donald Trump did his best impression of Richard Nixon yet, firing the respected FBI Director who just happened to be investigating him, and then “explaining” it about five or six different ways.
         Yes, the Greek tragedy that operates out of the Oval Office – thanks to “angry whites” – took on possibly historic new dimensions with the latest crazed antics of this bizarre regime.

  • We must defend our arctic claims

        May 9 is Great Victory Day in Russia. It celebrates the end of the Great Fatherland War, the European phase of what we call World War II. It marks the day Nazi Germany surrendered. The instruments of surrender were signed on the night of May 8, 1945, but the Russians celebrate Great Victory Day on May 9 because it was already after midnight, Moscow time, when the documents were signed.
