Shooting The Messenger

May 17, 2013


Within a few days of my post, “An Ounce of Prevention”, came the quite predictable response to the Heritage Foundation’s  promotion of their policy paper on the fiscal cost of providing amnesty for 11 to 15 million migrants in this country illegally.  The response from the media and advocacy group proponents of amnesty, is not […]

I’ll Have An Ounce of Prevention, Please

May 7, 2013


Woven into the fabric of our unique American culture is the timeless wisdom of founding father, Benjamin Franklin.  Franklin, the author of the phrase, “An Ounce of Prevention is worth a Pound of Cure”, would be appalled at much that is going on in American politics, but probably not shocked. Ambassador and Postmaster Franklin counted […]

Two Wrongs don’t make a Civil Right

April 28, 2013


With all of the perfidy he has perpetrated, I don’t believe I have as yet, dedicated a particular post to Attorney General Eric Holder.  I’m correcting that as of today.  As many suspected, Obama’s re-coronation last year signified a shift from even a modest degree of restraint to the worst behavior of a lame duck […]

Sgt. Prepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

March 27, 2013


I wrote a piece last year called “Tea Party Terrorists”, in which I detailed that the Department of Homeland Security – the Frankenstein monster spawned from the ashes of 9/11 – commissioned a survey from the University of Maryland National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism.  The study concluded that conservatives […]

His Royal Majesty’s Drones

March 7, 2013


I wanted to embed one of the all time scenes involving a predator drone from the world of entertainment.  This, from the grand series end finale of my favorite TV drama, 24 – was my initial choice –  because it affords you the script writer’s anticipation of the policy argument now at hand – that […]

‘Active Shooter’ Safety Training for Obama Voters

January 31, 2013


  The Department of Homeland Security has prepared a video for all Americans who are so mentally challenged as to have voted for Barack Obama’s re-election.  This video is called ‘Options for consideration’ and its premise is to help the growing number of Americans that are unable to think for themselves or execute simple mental […]

Tea Party Terrorists

July 11, 2012


President Obama is bosom buddies with a pair of lovely individuals, Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Doern, who committed terrorist acts as the principals of the Weather Underground unit. That’s fine with the Legacy media, who see no conflict in a sitting President having such associations. On the other hand, if you are a […]

The Nightmare Act

June 15, 2012


At this point the news is out and is ubiquitously so, regarding the announcement by the POTUS and by ‘Big Sis’ – Janet Napolitano at DHS, that federal immigration authorities are going to be pursuing a policy of select non-enforcement of immigration law.  Bad news travels fast.  I’ll spare you much of the mundane details […]

Resist and Replace part Deux

November 14, 2010


I pledged (on Sunday’s post) to outline an alternative to the existing Charlie Foxtrot situation that masquerades as effective passenger security.  Well here it is. There is a benchmark standard which the Department of Homeland Security could have adopted as an operational model – that is the security protocol of El Al Airlines, recognized by […]

Resist and Replace

November 14, 2010


The topic of TSA passenger screening methods involving full body imaging scans and intrusive patdowns has been gaining the scrutiny and fervent objection of everyone from Pilots to Flight Attendants to travelers – and rightly so.  Yet, the TSA defends its behavior by denying the abusive nature of both the practices and the practitioners.  Worse, […]
