  • California soldiers ordered to repay enlistment bonuses

    10/23/2016 7:50:01 AM PDT · by artichokegrower
    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | October 23, 2016
    Nearly 10,000 California National Guard soldiers have been ordered to repay huge enlistment bonuses a decade after signing up to serve in Iraq and Afghanistan, a newspaper reported Saturday. The Pentagon demanded the money back after audits revealed overpayments by the California Guard under pressure to fill ranks and hit enlistment goals. If soldiers refuse, they could face interest charges, wage garnishments and tax liens, the Los Angeles Times said.
  • Without Trump We Are Done

    We live in a country rapidly losing its sovereignty and its soul. Porous borders, freedom-killing regulations and more fierce foreign competition threaten our prosperity, security and culture. Trump is not the savior. He may not be the solution. But, his election, or lack thereof, will represent the core of our soul and values. Trump represents the opposite of current trend of failure. Heís a successful businessman who doesnít believe in political correctness. His message is clear: Ďour government is corrupt, operated by incompetent people and our media is even worse.í I agree with him. In the past three to...
  • Proposition 57: Do You Feel Lucky?

    10/23/2016 6:48:44 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | October 23, 2016 | Debra J. Saunders
    Sponsors say Proposition 57, the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act of 2016, will save taxpayers money by making nonviolent felons eligible for parole earlier and improve fairness by having judges, not prosecutors, decide whether juveniles are tried as adults. Critics call it a "get out of jail early" card. I would add that it's the sort of dishonest measure that becomes commonplace under unaccountable one-party rule. State pols gamed the system to get it on the ballot. The title promises public safety when it could result in the early release of repeat offenders. Yet California voters are likely to...

    In an election that seems to not want to focus on the issues of the campaign, let us at least focus on important matters regarding this election. Ms. Clinton, who has disappeared from the Mainstream Media, has asked Americans to support her while she has consistently displayed attributes no one would want in a Girl Scout leader -- let alone a president. Leadership means something. We all know that there are times when our leaders have fall guys; i.e., people who fall on their swords to protect the top leader or, in this case, our president.

    Aleppo, Syria, has lately been the focus of much world attention, with some people even hearing in it the first rumblings of WW3. It is not really possible to sort out the wheat from the chaff in the torrents of information and opinions pouring daily through every conceivable communication channel, without asking the locals for their insights. Dr. Nabil Antaki is one of the brave hearts that chose to remain in Aleppo despite the tragic loss of his brother, killed by 'rebels', to care for the war-wounded, mostly without charging a fee. He is also a member of a small,...
