American Racism Vs. Japanese Racism

I was listening to Phil Valentine the other day when he was talking about the internment of Americans of Japanese descent during WW2. He was trying to justify their internment based on supposed threats that these Americans posed to national security at the time. Phil capped off his argument by saying that the Supreme Court upheld Roosevelt's executive action 9066. Well, I guess that makes everything all hunky dory. I would remind him that the court also upheld slavery, segregation, abortion, Obamacare, and same sex marriage. Some on the left are trying to say that the screening of Muslims coming into this country is the equivalent of the WW2 internment camps or that it will lead to that. This is a ridiculous argument. Screening Japanese, Germans and Italians coming into this country during WW2 would have been totally justified. However the imprisonment of a particular group of people without probable cause, especially American citizens, is never justified. Nearly 120,000 Americ…

“It became necessary to destroy the Republican Party to save it,”

The following goals are straight from the Tea Party web site.

15 Non-negotiable Core Beliefs 
1. Illegal aliens are here illegally. 2. Pro-domestic employment is indispensable. 3. A strong military is essential. 4. Special interests must be eliminated. 5. Gun ownership is sacred. 6. Government must be downsized. 7. The national budget must be balanced. 8. Deficit spending must end. 9. Bailout and stimulus plans are illegal. 10. Reducing personal income taxes is a must. 11. Reducing business income taxes is mandatory. 12. Political offices must be available to average citizens. 13. Intrusive government must be stopped. 14. English as our core language is required. 15. Traditional family values are encouraged. 
  I agree with every one of these goals and for the life of me I can't understand why every American would not agree with them. The Republican Party won the big on many, if not most of these principles in 1994, 2010 and 2014. Lamar Alexander claimed to be the true Conservati…

Common Core Logic

Okay, lets get this straight. We elected a Republican Congress in 2010 to stop Obama. Especially in regards to Obamacare and illegal immigration. Instead of stopping him they hand over the power of the purse to Obama and pretty much approve everything he asks for. The Republicans complain that if they only had the Senate they could then fulfill their promises. The electorate gave them the Senate. No change. On top of this they hand over their treaty powers to Obama. He negotiates the worse treaty in American history with Iran. We get nothing. They get a direct path to acquiring a nuclear weapon and we become the greatest state sponsor of terrorism on earth. Congress approves 150 billion dollars to kill our soldiers and civilians. Including our allies soldiers and civilians. As a bonus, the Gang of Eight, tries to push an amnesty bill down our throats until it is stopped by Ted Cruz. Their failure to stop Obama leads to the creation of Donald Trump. They are determined to stop Donal…

A Living Constitution or Better Yet, A Living Nightmare

With the nomination of Merrick Garland as a replacement for Antonin Scalea on the Supreme Court, I am hearing that he is a centrist and highly regarded by both parties. Beyond that I must admit that I know nothing about him. However, I do know this. I could never trust anyone that is nominated by Barack Hussein. I am hoping that the Republicans will steadfastly refuse consideration for any nominee until after the election. Regardless of what the Democrats say, the Republicans are bound at some point to consider a replacement but it doesn't have to happen until after the election. Obama can appoint but the Republicans also have the right to wait if they want to. I have no faith in the Republicans and I expect them to cave to political pressure as they always do. If they stand their ground I will be totally shocked.
  One of the greatest lies ever perpetrated by the left is that the Constitution is a " Living Constitution". This is simply code word for legislating from …


It was good to be home even if it was just for a few weeks. I love Tennessee in the late Spring and Oregon can't compare in my book. All too soon my leave was over and my departure date of May 31, 1970 arrived. Orders called for me to fly from Nashville to New York on American Airlines, From there I would fly Pan American to Istanbul with layovers in London and Frankfort. At Istanbul I would change to Turkish Airlines and fly into Adana Turkey, with a layover in Ankara. Adana is the home to Incirlik AFB. There I would process into Tuslog Detachment 93, which would be my duty station for the next year. After processing in at Incirlik I would fly military aircraft to Erhac AFB near Malatya Turkey. Sounded simple enough to me. My heart was heavy as I packed to leave that morning. Debbie drove me to the airport where I kissed her and Robbie goodbye. I boarded the plane and through my tears I could see Debbie waving from the observation deck while Robbie played near her feet, unawar…
