RIP, Beau Biden

Dead of brain cancer at age 48. I didn’t agree with his politics, or care much for his dad. Reportedly he was a decent fellow and a good man. He was an officer in the Army National Guard. RIP, Mr. Biden. Gone far too soon.

Martin O’Malley is not the answer, unless it was a very stupid question

According to the Washington Times Marty O’Malley will announce his intentions to run for President next year. I don’t often get into politics that don’t have to do with people in uniform, but this is so ridiculous, I can’t help it this time. See that picture above? That’s O’Malley celebrating how he passed a tax […]

A new Iraq “surge”?

Michael Crowley at Politico speculates on what a new Iraq “surge” would look like.

This morning’s story comes from Mississippi and it takes two articles to tell the story because English is a lost language among journalists down there, I guess.

Washington Post; The U.S. must do more to help Iraq fight the Islamic State

I hate to say this out loud and in public, but the Washington Post’s editorial staff and I agree on something finally. In today’s edition, they take the Obama Administration to task on their handling of the war against ISIS. The Administration merely reacts to ISIS gains in Iraq and Syria, like their latest shipment […]
