Our Legacy

Today Suzie-Q and I went out to the cemetery to visit my parents’ gravesite. We tidied up, replaced some old flowers with new, and then took a little quiet time. I thought about a legacy. Looking down at the final resting place for what is often referred to as the greatest generation I pondered how […]

Trump’s appeal: Without ‘America First,’ nothing gets done

Let’s be honestly introspective for a moment. If you’ve ever been more concerned with Donald Trump’s destructive brand of politics than radical Islamism, America doesn’t have time for you anymore.  If you believe that criticizing Islamic terrorism only increases the terrorists’ recruitment efforts, your legitimacy as a talking head is coming to an end. The […]

Noel Patrick “Molly” Muller; Australian phony

Our friends at Australia & New Zealand Military Imposters send us their work on this Noel Patrick “Molly” Muller fellow. I get the sense that he’s like some of our fat-mouthed creeps.
