Eliminating Gun Free Zones

I heard "His Majesty King Barack the 1st" and I hope the last, on the news saying that these mass shootings have to stop. We all know what that means. More laws and executive orders that infringe on our 2nd Amendment rights rather than realistically dealing with the problem. I do agree with "His Excellency" on one thing. These shootings need to stop. I am a twenty year veteran of the Air Force Security Police. The Federal Government has spent thousands of tax dollars providing me with weapons training, combat training, law enforcement training and security training. I have had numerous security clearances and Top Secret background investigations that have enabled me to provide security for Presidents, Vice Presidents, Generals, V.I.P.'s, nuclear weapons, bombers, fighters, and aircraft of every description. I worked at NORAD in Cheyenne Mountain Colorado. As a civilian however, with a state gun carry permit, I cannot legally carry a weapon into a mall, a hos…

Pearl Harbor

The attack on Pearl Harbor began at 0755 on the morning of December 7, 1941. There would be two waves consisting of 353 fighters, torpedo planes and dive bombers launched from six Japanese carriers. All eight U.S. Navy battleships were damaged, with four being sunk. Two of these were later raised, and with the remaining four repaired, six battleships returned to service later in the war. The USS Arizona was sunk with a loss of over 1,000 sailors. The USS Oklahoma was torpedoed and turned upside down trapping hundreds of sailors. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft training ship, and one mine layer. One hundred and eighty-eight U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,402 Americans were killed and 1,282 wounded. Only September 11, 2001 saw more Americans killed in one day than Pearl Harbor. Important base installations such as the power station, shipyard, maintenance, and fuel and torpedo storage facilities, as well as the submarine piers and…

The Bigotry And Ignorance Of The Left

The new theme of the left seems to be that Republicans and Conservatives like myself are just frustrated bigoted, racist and angry white people who realize that because of changing demographics we will no longer be in the majority in a few years. They are right about one thing. Because of illegal immigration from Hispanics and people of color, including Middle Eastern Muslims that is wholeheartedly supported by establishment Democrats and Republicans white people will be in the minority soon. I might also add that black people will be an even smaller minority than they are now. Where the left is wrong however is the fact that because of their own bigotry they cannot see that our anger is not based on race as much as it is based on the realization that our unique American character is in danger of being destroyed. If I died and woke up 100 years from now and every American was brown I wouldn't care as long as I recognized them as Americans. I believe in the idea of the American …
