I think the Chicks totally got screwed by the hooplah over their comments a few years ago. Americans pri...

Re: Looked Strange To Me

I could be wrong. Heck, I never heard about placing your hand on your heart for the anthem, I thought that ...

Re: Should he resign???

Yes, I think he should resign, but not because of the affair. When the governor of a state disappears for several days, with, it seems nobody knowing where he is, and with his staff seemingly misled about where he is, that is totally irresponsible to his state, his constituency, and to anyone who c...

Re: Protests in Iran....

"When my country, into which I had just set my foot, was set on fire about my ears, it was time to stir. It was time for every man to stir." Thomas Paine, Common Sense US patriot & political philosopher (1737 - 1809) Seems that the fire is starting to catch in Iran, but will it grow? That is my hope.

Re: Little BigHorn Montana

One of the interesting/sobering aspects of Little Bighorn is that it is the only national cemetary where the soldiers were buried where they fell. At other battlefields the fallen were brought to a planned cemetary and buried. But at Little Bighorn, for whatever reason, the burial detail dug the gra...
