Tom – Foolery

Talk about ingratitude. Students at the University of Virginia have become the latest young Americans to try to saw off the branch that they are sitting on. In this case, the legacy of Thomas Jefferson.          An article written by the editorial board of the university’s student newspaper says that Thomas Jefferson’s […]

End of an Era: The passing of Queen Elizabeth ll

Great Britain has not only lost the world’s longest reigning monarch as well as the most famous woman on the planet. Her passing also denotes the end of the glory and clout that she represented of the unrivaled British Empire.

Climate Lies

The Inflation Reduction Act invests 369 billion dollars to take the most aggressive action ever, ever, ever to confront the climate crisis and strengthen our energy security according to President Biden recently at the White House just before signing the IRA into law.       The IRA goes far beyond the massive figure that […]

Opting Out

The problem is a simple one: Not enough people want to be soldiers and with good reason.       The Army’s No.2 […]

They’re accusing Texas Governor Greg Abbott, but there’s only one person to blame: President Biden. It was only ever the Biden government that did this, starting on inauguration day 2021, […]

Enviro Fish Tale

This blog is credited to Humberto Fontova, an author and serious outdoorsman from New Orleans.The main idea to be gleaned from this essay is that despite all the blather to the contrary oil rigs don’t harm marine life — they actually help it to thrive.                     […]

He provides some background to the new federal holiday as well as some success stories of famous, semi-famous and obscure Black Americana. America recently marked our second Juneteenth national holiday. Some will focus on the severe […]
