How do mothers keep their babies safe in the world today?

| May 25, 2017

  Maybe I’m just being overly concerned about raising of families nowadays, but I can’t help thinking about my granddaughter Annalyn and her safety when taking a video of a mother deer watching over her fawn in the backyard today (below). Whether it is the uncivilized world we live in where young girls are the […]

A different or additional approach in combatting ISIS

| January 31, 2016

Without American boots on the ground, defeating ISIS is not going to happen quickly if at all. After watching the movie “13 Hours” this week (and leaving me angry at our leaders), I pondered the covert activity by the CIA and other nations in the fight. In Libya, it seems that a “mystery sniper” is […]

Will the toy quadcopter be used in the next wave of terrorism

| January 26, 2015

It’s really not a laughing matter, but a drone flying around the White House is unfortunately a sign of the times. Technology has advanced to the point that a person who wants a quadcopter or UAV can probably buy/build and fly them … some more successfully than others, sorry Vice President Biden.

The Third Stage of Terrorism may be at our doorstep

| January 11, 2015

This past week’s killings at the Charlie Hebdo offices needs to be a real eye-opener for those we elect to protect our citizens and nation.

An article in the WSJ on Friday is a reminder that the threat from terrorists, cartels, gangs and other countries is […]

Remembering 9/11 from the Sandy Hook surf

| September 11, 2013

Besides flying our flag at half staff for Patriot Day, I’ve been looking for something besides posting a photo as way to remember the attack on our country 12 years ago. Here is a story written by Chris Moody about Ed Hewitt who was surfing in Sandy Hook, New Jersey. “He sat by himself, straddling […]

Aww, shucks … another terrorist leader dead

| September 30, 2011

As someone who has never been comfortable with President Obama’s policies or what he says publicly (particularly his “apologies for America” overseas) or in regards to terrorism (does the Obama administration even use that word?) — I will  acknowledge that there  has been continued aggressive actions to the exterminate top Al-Qaeda leaders (and pretty successful […]
