          ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS Most of us become familiar with the Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," fairly early in our childhood days. Significant others, who happen to be adults, seem to stumble over themselves in being the historic "first" to teach the young child this bit of wisdom. Hmmmmmmm, I stumbled upon a quote for those of us who are adults with a burning desire to pass the Golden Rule on to our young children of today: "We have committed the Golden Rule to memory; let us...

  • Trump orders review to strengthen US defense industry

    CNBC ^ | July 21, 2017 | Reuters
    President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Friday initiating a government-wide review of the U.S. defense industry and suggest changes to strengthen it. The review is intended to identify and address potential weak points in the defense manufacturing base including companies that could go out of business and leave gaps in the supply chain for U.S. weapons systems, said Peter Navarro, the White House National Trade Council director. The executive order asked for recommendations on possible legislative, regulatory and policy changes that would improve and support the defense industry, calling it a "significant national priority." "America's defense industrial base...

    When a relative of mine who lives in Congressman Bergman's district in Michigan called his D.C. office to ask them why he was one of only 24 Republicans who voted against the amendment to stop funding for transgender surgeries in the military, a staff member for Congressman Jack Bergman, retired United States Marine Corps Lieutenant General, and the current U.S. Representative for Michigan's 1st congressional district (Northern Michigan - Bart Stupak's old seat), said that both President Trump and Bergman's friend and fellow retired Marine, Secretary of Defense James "Mad Dog" Mattis, both advised Congressman Bergman to vote against that...

    Children used in suicide attacks, executions and other operations. The Islamic State has a robust program, named “Cubs of the Caliphate,” for indoctrinating children. It is one of the most disturbing aspects of the organization’s operations. Not only does the Islamic State’s propaganda frequently feature children attending classes, its videos have proudly displayed the jihadists’ use of children as executioners. Earlier this month, for instance, the group’s Wilayah Jazirah disseminated a video entitled, “They Left Their Beds Empty.” Four children are shown beheading Islamic State captives. The same production is laced with footage of the terrorists responsible for the November...

          U-571 U-571 is truly an "on the edge of your seat" film about a US Navy crew trying to sail a Nazi U-Boat to England in 1942 (won't explain how that happens, see the movie). In one scene, the boat is attacked by depth charges from a German destroyer. The crew turns to the young skipper for guidance and asks what they should do to save the boat and their lives. He says he doesn't know. Somehow they survive this attack. The wise, crusty Chief then has a fatherly chat with the skipper in a quiet...
  • Shattuck: T-shirt shows Bill Belichick to be a true patriot

    Bravo to Bill Belichick. A Twitter user yesterday afternoon posted a couple of pictures of the prodigious coach wearing a shirt bearing an illustration that shocked some, confused others and pleased many more. The text reads, “Life is great” and features a depiction of an armed man in a turban being attacked by a military dog as he’s being chased by a soldier carrying a rifle. Is this hate-wear? No way. This is patriot-wear the Patriots head coach was showing off. The shirts are sold on a site called www.tridentk9.org, run by Jim Amann, now a deputy sheriff in Los...

    House lawmakers will introduce legislation Thursday to secure college aid for reservists and reimburse veterans whose schools unexpectedly close, as well as do away with a 15-year time limit for veterans to use education benefits – changes that together create the largest expansion of veterans’ education benefits since the Post-9/11 GI Bill was created nearly a decade ago. The legislation represents an initial deal reached between House Republicans and Democrats, encouraged by veterans organizations that acted behind-the-scenes the past several weeks to reignite support for it. Details were obtained by Stars and Stripes ahead of the Thursday rollout. Ending the...

    Update 8:20PM EST: This evening the House of Representatives voted 209 to 214 to defeat the amendment denying the Pentagon funds for "sex change" surgeries. Sarah McBride, spokesperson for the LGBT lobby group Human Rights Campaign, reported, "If only three Members of Congress had voted yes instead [i.e., FOR the measure denying taxpayer funding to the Pentagon for transsexual "sex reassignment surgeries"], this dangerous and discriminatory anti-transgender amendment would have passed." More than 20 Republicans joined the Democrats in voting to defeat the measure. Pro-life Catholic Illinois Democrat Rep. Dan Lipinski, who is pro-life, also voted on the side of...
