    I work about a mile from the Smithsonian museums and like every good Washingtonian, I never visit the famous sites. Today, being Labor Day, and having nothing else to do, I decided to go the Smithsonian Museum of American History. In one area they had a poll, taken by the museum visitors (how many thousands would that be?), voting for the greatest president in history. George Washington came in first, Abraham Lincoln second, Barak Obama third. I always thought "my jaw dropped" was just a fanciful expression, but my jaw DID drop. Reagan, by the way was 4th.

    . August 21, 2014 Newt Gingrich : President Obama's Golf: The Real Problem ===================================================== A lot of people have commented on and made fun of the frequency of President Obama’s golfing. The more I watched President Obama, however, the more I concluded the problem was what was not happening between golf rounds. Two earlier presidents, Eisenhower and Reagan, golfed frequently but their presidencies were stunningly successful. The difference seemed to be that Eisenhower and Reagan were really effective when they weren't golfing. President Eisenhower was a very serious golfer who had been a varsity football player at West Point. Eisenhower...

One: The officer will not be tried Two: There will be a trial with two possible outcomes: a) Wilson is acquitted b) He is found guilty The questions: What will be the reaction of various segments around the country? Will it be a repeat of LA 1992? Do you know your community and the demographics? Anticipated reaction from various communities? What preparation steps, if any, are you taking for these outcomes?

    Time and time again, we seem to be presented with a complete disconnect with how violent black youths present themselves and what is real. Trayvon Martin, we presented as a young moral boy who was afraid for his life while Michael Brown as a gentle giant--both with bright college futures ahead of them. Regardless of what positive virtues they may have had, it's pretty clear that neither strived to be gentle or striving for educational excellence. It seems that both fully embraced the black violent gang culture and this culture embraced them back. If either of these two were anything...

    I used to consider myself a very competent driver. One day back in 2010, I accelerated my precious 200 hp Volvo V70 out of a boring ferry departing from a Danish harbor and felt I was ready for the legendary Autobahn. Rather immediately though, I got stopped by a bunch of German highway police officers. "Most welcome to Germany, but take it easy", I got told (off). I soon forgot all about these words. 10 minutes later I nearly caused an accident because I failed to understand there was a que developing just one kilometer ahead of me. However, several...

    As the well-coordinated, Russian and Militant Muslim giant military pincer maneuver continues to rapidly succeed for control of the Eastern Mediterranean formerly Sovereign Nations, will NATO's Turkey soon have to decide if Obama's failed "Pen and Phone, Whack-a-Mole" Military Exceptionalism, is better or worse than Putin or ISIS? Control of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Suez Canal by Russia's Navy would allow the free flow of Muslim Militant's Oil to the Russian-controlled Ukraine Oil Pipelines to Europe, at a mutually beneficial price to Putin and ISIS, of course.

    Vanity: Some all comedy stations have dropped the format as distribution of 24/7 comedy ended. One is KFNY AM 1440 Riverside, CA, which is now news-talk as "IE (Inland Empire) 1440". As one would expect with Clear Channel this probably means syndicated talkers like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity. Not sure, as the KFNY website doesn't have a schedule yet but I just went to iHeartRadio at 11:06 ET--8:06 PT--and heard Glenn Beck. So if you like conservative talk and are up there, it may be worth checking out. (The site does have a new logo, a mention...

    President Obama has violated his oath to uphold the Constitution and has instituted policies which have collapsed the Southern Border, and compromised the security our sea ports and air ports. This has allowed Mexico, Guatamala, Honduras, and El Salvador to purge their countries of violent criminals, and people with contagious diseases, allowing them unlimited access to the United States. In addition, by compromising the security of our borders, Islamic Terrorists have their best chance ever of entering the United States undetected.

In the end, the gun helped to put him away, but even with priors (including a shooting about 10 years back) he only received a sentence of 3 ˝ to 7 years from our pathetic “justice” system. Fast forward to the present. I was informed that I could get my...
