No More Killed In Action, #NoMoreKIAs

No More KIAs means no boots on the ground in Iraq in response to the beheading of James Foley. For that matter, in response to anything that is not a direct attack on us. By on us, I mean on US soil. I am a member of a very exclusive club and it is our... Read more »

James Foley Is All Of Us

James Foley, a US journalist was murdered by the cowards of ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, alternatively known as ISIL, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. What these savages did to James Foley is what they want to do to every man, woman and child in this country. This is... Read more »

Senator Walsh, PTSD didn't cause you to plagiarize your lack of character did

Senator Walsh has claimed PTSD caused him to plagiarize his War College Master’s thesis. With this ridiculous, dishonorable utterance, Walsh has once again brought the specter of PTSD and the myth of the dangerous veteran into the news. Once again, the general public is being given not just a wrong but a very damaging idea... Read more »

Bowe Bergdahl the Deserter-In their Words

When I first wrote about the release of Bowe Bergdahl, my intention was twofold. First, to set the record straight that Bergdahl was a deserter and second, to question the timing of the resignations of VA Secretary Shinseki and Press Secretary Jay Carney. I contended and still contend the timing of those resignations was intentionally... Read more »

Bowe Bergdahl the Deserter Released

Welcome home Bowe Berghdahl, we are all glad you are back in the US where you belong. You are now charged with desertion, dereliction of duty and absence without leave. There will be a full investigation to determine if charges of aiding and abetting the enemy,  or even treason are warranted. Further, you are charged... Read more »

Shinseki and Obama vs Veterans and The American Taxpayer

Eric Shinseki is surprised and appalled at the systemic lack of principles among so many in the VA leadership. Obama is to have a ‘serious conversation’ with Shinseki. Veterans are literally dying to see a VA doctor. And the American Taxpayer is footing the bill. Just what in the hell is really going on? The... Read more »

The Dishonorable Cut the Pensions of the Honorable in 2014 Budget

Of What People By What People Our Congress, indeed our entire system of government is predicated on the principal, ‘of the people, by the people, for the people’. With an approval rating of just 6%, it’s interesting to ponder just who are ‘the people’ our elected officials in Washington are representing. The latest budget debacle... Read more »

Obama Apology Letter to Afghan People

This misleading headline has been quickly denounced as false by Susan Rice, Obama’s national security advisor. “No such letter has been drafted or delivered. There is not a need for the United States to apologize to Afghanistan,” was the statement she made on CNN’s “Situation Room”. She further stated she does not know where these... Read more »

Immigration Rally On National Mall

I have resisted writing anything about the shutdown, the ridiculousness of Washington DC, Obamacare and just about anything else in the news lately. Not because I don’t care but simply because I am so sickened and disgusted, I’m having a hard time forming words. With this latest news, that has changed. Last week I applauded... Read more »

Paula Deen and Robert Kerkorian: Words From the Past

Paula Deen is held accountable for what she said and loses her job. Robert Kerkorian lies about his military service and is promoted to Chief of Waukegan Police. What’s wrong with this picture? I cannot and will not defend Paula Deen, though I believe we as a culture have become ridiculously overly sensitive. Because she,... Read more »

    Denise Williams

    Born and bred in Chicago, now living in the wilds of far suburbia. I'm a Gold Star Mom, a wife and step-mom to two terrific boys. My views are generally politically and socially conservative, though I am far from a Party line Republican. I believe in this country, our Constitution and above all, in the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I believe our government is supposed to serve the people, not tell them how to live. To me, this is just common sense, but since it seems to be a minority opinion, it has become "Uncommon Sense".
