    When all else fails, trust the data.

    It is patently false to equate abortion (murder of a child) with divorce. One ends a life and one ends a marriage.

    Minimum wage means minimum skill, minimum intelligence, minimum effort.

    Junior High and High School were a long time ago but my father’s advice on handling Don Hartman stayed with me.

    He told me not to get into a boxing match. Kick Hartman in the knee as hard as I could while jabbing my thumb into his eye. Then hit him in the nose to draw blood. Lick the blood off my hand and smile at Hartman. A very violent response but it worked. Dad told me if I got expelled he would not be upset. My mom was po’ed.

    My grandfather, my father, myself and my son have all fought in America’s wars since the Spanish American War.

    If needs must, I will fight.

    After all the tapes of Trump discussing women in the most disgusting way, I remain surprised that he still has any supporters.

    A simple question: What would you do if Trump talked about your wife or daughter this way?

    I am 69 and have been a conservative since my freshman year in college. I could tell liberals were insane. But, I can’t support Trump he is no conservative or a gentleman.

    The left ardently claims to be supportive of blacks advancing out of the projects but let one succeed and they attack him. There is no such thing as a successful black in the left’s narrative.

    Just for the hell of it, I looked up what percentage of the US population is classified as hermaphrodites. The answer: In general: 0.033% to 0.05% of babies are born hermaphrodites. The average number of babies born in the US is 4 million per year.

    Back in history (1962-1969), baseball Coach Harner would make us run laps and run lines on the football field if he even thought we were screwing off. If it was raining, he made us run the bleachers. I didn’t know this was abuse. I did know it sucked. I also learned to pay attention and focus.

    This coach should be praised not fired. He is instilling a sound character as well as physically developing kids by making them run laps.

    I am the son of a career, a soldier myself and the father of a career soldier.

    Growing up, I remember my dad having nightmares. I remember my nightmares. My son has his own. The issue is how does a soldier cope with what they have seen and done. My father had the luxury of down time sailing from Guadalcanal to Australia and then to CONUS. My father coped by having a strong faith in GOD.

    Like all Vietnam vets I flew home. There was no decompression time. I tried to cope with alcohol. It didn’t work. I decided that I would be the best father a child could have. That worked. Like me, my son flew home and had no decompression time. My son copes by talking to me about what he experienced.

    Those who can’t cope are not weak. They are wounded. They deserve all the support we can give.

    What Trump said is true. Everyone who has been in combat has some form of PTSD. Some of us learn to cope others do not. The soldier who does not is not weak, he is wounded.

    I only had to do one tour. My son has had 4 tours. We expect too much from them. We talk quite a bit about what we have seen and done. It helps to talk about it. I think Mike is going to be able to cope.

    Great humor. Only fanatics on both sides won’t find this funny.

    To You, O Lord,

    Take him into Your arms and welcome him into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping nor pain, but the fullness of peace and joy with Your Son and the Holy Spirit
    forever and ever.

    OODA Loop stands for Observe, Orient, Decide, Act. It was developed by COL John Boyd for jet fighter tactics. The OODA Loop has migrated in different forms to all the military and some law enforcement. The Thatch Weave is a brilliant example of putting the OODA Loop to work. It is a great tool for self-defense and is totally compatible with Cooper’s Color Code.

    I urge you to google OODA Loop and Cooper’s Colors learn them and practice them.

    Keep in mind that when you act, be a killer. Anything less makes you a victim.

    LTG Mattis summed up the concept for his Marines. Be polite. Be professional. Have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

    Sex tapes or not, Trump needs to get off the path he is on. My wife, a life long conservative, has decided not to vote for anyone this year. She decided that in a choice between two evils, don’t chose either one.

    I am undecided. I have voted conservative since 1968. I was going to vote for Trump but he can’t seem to stay on message unless the message he wants is to alienate women.

    If you don’t know the condition levels of situational awareness, learn and use them. If you don’t know what an OODA loop is learn and use. Learn to recognize the difference between antisocial behavior and asocial behavior.

    Remember the human body is designed to be a predator. All of us are equal. Train to kill. Everything else is an athletic ballet designed for competition not killing. Eyes and testicles don’t care about how much training a person has had. Remember prisons are full of untrained killers. If you are unwilling and lack the intent to behave like them in your own defense, you are a victim.

    I have a sense of dread that this is not going to end well.

    Cruz did this because of the threat by RNC that candidates who promised to support the primary winner then did not, would not be supported by the RNC in the future.

    My son was in Mosul during the same time. Not only did our sons and other sons and daughters win that battle, it was a defeat in detail. Thank your sons for me. They sacrificed their youth and innocence only to be slapped in the face by Obama.
