Drug Testing for High Level Officials.


Why Shouldn’t High Level Public Servants Prove They are Drug Free? As a condition of employment, almost everyone, from the guys who pick up the trash and deliver the mail, to the folks who read meters and repair the highways must agree to random drug and Alcohol testing. A number of my jobs, and consulting contracts required a full drug screening and an agreement to random testing. Why don’t “We The People,” the employers of every person in government, require the same of those with whom we entrust our lives, liberties and our very existence as … Continue reading

Judeo-Christian Principles vs Religion

Judeo Christian

Judeo-Christian Principles vs Religion – Does a person need God to be moral?
Whenever anyone re-states the obvious fact that the United States of America was founded upon Christian or Judeo-Christian principles, some Bozo (no offense to clowns) always plays the religion card.

Christian or Judeo-Christian principles are easily separated from faith or religion.

Here’s how to do it.

Aircraft Wreckage

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to be a Photo Interpreter or an IMGINT (Imaging Intelligence) analyst, here’s a chance to get a taste.

Maybe it’s not as engaging as Candyland or reading up on Justin’s escapades, but if enough people are looking, who knows?

Christians’ throats slit in pagan slaughterhouse


Among the contributing factors for the U.S. withdrawal (retreat) from Viet Nam were the brutal and disturbing newspaper and television images of mangled corpses, burned bodies and and other subjects that reflected the cruelty and human toll of that war. Today’s media, however, shrinking in fear that they might upset or offend someone, refuses to expose ‘polite society’ to the cruelty and inhumanity that surpasses even Nazi Germany, if not in scale, at least in brutality. Well I say that it’s high time for the media to step up, stop blurring out the blood, guts and … Continue reading

Need We Reinvent the Education Wheel?


Take a quick look at a few of the statistics, and even the teacher’s unions can’t spin or deny it.There is just no polite way to say it. Comparatively speaking, what we call education in America sucks.

Common Core is (among other things) an attempt to standardize the way people learn and think. That’s not a bad idea when you are building machines. We, however, are building the future of our nation, and our world, and need to adapt the system to the children, not the other way around.

Why Bergdahl is a Non Issue

Bowe Bergdahl

Take the whole prisoner swap thing out of the equation for a minute.

Absent that one factor, what potential terrorist act would be so threatening, or what ‘evidence’ be so compromising to justify the release of the top five War Criminals at GITMO?

Barbara Walters and Sen. Ed Brooke – The Story Behind the Photo

Barbara Walters and Ed Brooke

If I ever had a National Enquirer Moment, that was it, but alas I was young, and now that I look back at it, quite stupid!

In light of Barbara Walters’ tell-all book, confirming the rumor of her affair with Senator Ed Brooke, I felt comfortable publishing this photo for the first time here a few years ago, (Dec. 2012)

Hearing of her announced ‘retirement,’ I thought it fitting to resurrect it from the dust bin.

Why I Won’t Fix Your Computer

Computer Crazy

I may gladly recommend an anti-virus or a free office suite. I’ll show you how to make Window’s 8 look like Windows 7, how to format a drive, burn a CD, deal with ZIP files and maybe even hook up your wireless.

The only way I will touch your computer, however, is to wipe it clean, reinstall and update your operating system and drivers, and I’ll hesitate to do that.
Don’t lie about things like “I didn’t do anything, it just suddenly started …,” and “No, I never download software.” We are all human, and screw up on occasion. This is complicated stuff, and it’s not instinctive nor intuitive, I do not judge, because I have probably been there.

Yes, We Do Have a Rat Your Neighbor Law.


During the cold war the Soviet people (subjects) were expected to watch their neighbors, strangers, and even family and friends. and required by law (the KGB) to report suspicious activity to the police. (also KGB)

We Have That Law Here — in America!

So Who’s Stupid?


Whenever you find yourself in a time of low self-esteem, start thinking that you are fat, ugly or otherwise deformed, take a trip to Wal-Mart and look around.

I guarantee that you will immediately begin to feel better about yourself.

But what do you do when you begin to doubt your intellect?

Think Twice Before You Throw Scripture at a Homosexual


Simply put, the letter points out a logical flaw in the “homosexuality is wrong because the Bible says so” argument: if homosexuality is wrong because it goes against God’s law as outlined in the Bible, why aren’t any number of activities now viewed as innocuous but once regarded as unacceptable also offenses against God’s law?
How can one part of Leviticus be deemed as etched in stone when other parts have been discarded as archaic?

The Folly of Ballistic Fingerprinting and Microstamping

The Folly of Ballistic Fingerprinting

A number of States require Ballistic Fingerprinting or Micro-stamping of all new firearms while others are exploring these options.
In theory, when a cartridge casing or bullet is found at a crime scene, this database would be used to locate the gun’s purchaser, and thereby, the perpetrator of the crime.
Like most unworkable ideas, this one sounds logical and practical on the surface, but is based on false assumptions, emotions and “wishful science”. (If it sounds right it must be right.)
In practice, for a number of reasons explained below, ballistic fingerprinting of cartridge casings does not, will not and cannot work.
