Could this be coming to our area?

Censorship once again

Couple of days ago, just after the political speech was given by that State's Prosecutor in Baltimore, I sat and reflect upon what had just happened. Then, because of its nation-wide potential effect, I penned a comment. After submission I looked in to read comments on my own. Well, as expected and as it has come to be expected and predictable, my words were censored once again. Oh, they were not erased, not…

Rush to judgment? Appeasement"

I sit here and consider what I have just seen and heard. I also consider what I have seen and heard from right here in San Diego in past years as it pertains to events in Baltimore and could possibly spread right here to our own Village.

Like you, like most, I was shocked at the news of yet another man killed seemingly at the hands of police. But I even more shocked and totally disgusted at the following events wherein excited and jubilant blacks gleefully smashed yet more windows and…

America's future???

This is November 4th. This is a very important day. Question of the day: "What important event happens today?" 

Now, for you and I, this may appear to be a rather ridiculous question. For you and I this question would never occur, in any form or fashion. If asked this question during a "Man on the street" interview we would no…

Pretty sad commentary on society

I have read and re-read the McWhirter story and, as I have continued over many years, shake my head in wonder regarding "Politics". For how many generations have we witnessed this type of behaviour in political candidates? Why do, when absolutely desperate, opponents ALWAYS resort to the innuendo, the slander, the liable, the lies, the mocking, the dismissing, the demeaning, ad nauseum? Its not just here in our…

On La Mesa: Drought Politics

Shadows Of Times Past 

LA MESA -- Skipping through the news today I came across an article which caused me pause. Not really "just" pause but in fact visions of history I have studied for many years. The shadows and images of these memories never fail to bring about first a shudder…

Total media hypocrisy and national racism

First on the agenda today is the unwillingness of La Mesa Today to handle anything controversial. Oh, they will "publish" some items but if they do not fall within the flowery, everybody hug everybody, "Why cant we all get along" catagory those few articles will almost always be singled out and certainly NOT accompany the aforementioned calibre of report. That said, lets just wait and see what LMT will do with this…

Befuddled and getting madder every day!!

I am befuddled, flummoxed, confused. Each day, Each Day, I read and hear about this or that rank minority being upset by this or that. The "this or that" are and have ALL been Constitutionally guaranteed rights of all citizens and NOT the simple minded musings of a few. The Freedom From Religion radicals, a small but vocal band of fanatics, not dissimilar to the PETA outfit, are constantly prowling about,…

As they all bury their heads

Many, many years ago, as a wee lad living Kansas, I recall the vast rolling wheat fields. I would stand in wonder as the winds and breezes swept through and over the standing wheat creating what I thought the ocean would look like. I could actually see the wind walking across the fields. It was a beautiful thing to watch, hypnotizing. Years later, in the middle of the Pacific, I could watch the winds creating the…

For many years, generations, dating back to and a bit beyound the Roosevelt era, this nation has been in the throes of social restructuring and the evolution from a Republic based upon the Constitution to an American version, an American adaptation of Marxist/Trotski Collectivism which eventually brought the Soviet Union to ruin. Our own version is based upon what is euphemistically labelled as Social Equality but is…

Emblazoned across headlines and cable news are photos of 7th century fanatics leaping about like grade school children, screaming, "Lu, Lu, Lu" and firing their omnipresent AK47s into the air and I ask again the question plaguing me for several years now: "Why?"

Decades ago a President began throwing American lives into the…

Isnt it "funny"?

I received this in my post this morning and thought it was important to share:

"During the three and a half years of World War II, that started with the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese in December of 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the United States produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8…

Told ya

Yesterday I penned an opinion piece speaking about the destruction and crumbling of the Constitution as regarding the ongoing furor surrounding "Duck Dynasty". Freedom of speech once again raised it nasty ole head when Homosexuals shrieked and quivered over Mr. Robertson's statements regarding his faith. Progressives, Liberals and Hollywood freaks are all joining arms in condemnation because, whilst they all profess…

The Rise and Fall of the American Empire

Like the ancient Roman Empire, which through conquest, spread its influence and culture throughout the known world, so has the American "Empire" moved all around the planet. Our own "spread", however, has not been so much through and with "conquest" but through millions of lives sacrificed for freedom, uncounted dollars given to succor and assist, attempting to shine "Democracy" on Totalitarian rule and massive…

Today's quote (and will be for a long time!)

Vladimir Putin allegedly said off the record:

"Negotiating with Barack Obama is like playing chess with a pigeon. The pigeon knocks over all the pieces, craps on the board and then struts around like it won the game…

"Almost Orwellian"

Today's history lesson concerns an organization named, "Sicherheitsdienst" or "SD" for short. It was the Nazi Germany Security Service. Originally formed in 1931 as the "Ic-Dienst", it quickly morphed into the "Sicherheitsdients" by 1932 and was the Nazi party's Party Information Service by 1934.  It was divided into two distinct branches: "Ordnungpolizei" and "Sicherheitspolizei". The former being responsible for all…
