Why Gillette Is the Real Winner, Not Social Justice

Let’s throw aside the whole “toxic masculinity” thing for a second and look at what this is really about—free social media advertising. This is the sort of rhetoric you’re being sold. If you buy Gillette, then you are for the social change, the right side. That’s what this commercial is really selling you. They wrapped […]

Elizabeth Warren Needs to Stand Down

I get it. When someone calls you out on a “no-balls” challenge, you have to prove them wrong. Those of us in the military have done many of them. Regarding a certain Democratic Massachusetts senator and Presidential aspirant, President Donald Trump called you out and you played the game—and now you lost. Warren’s DNA test […]

America Has an Emotional Management Problem, Not a Gun Problem

You’ve all been there. Someone just cut you off, banged your mirror, or gracefully shown you the bird. This is America, it happens. Most of us just laugh it off or curse obscenely about likely-impossible things you wish upon another, like being impaled by a unicorn. The same is true when it comes to playing […]

Outrage is Currency

I honestly can’t keep up with what is and isn’t okay to be outraged by and protest over. Lately, the pendulum (narrative) only swings in one direction—whatever the left says should upset you. Earlier this year, the Parkland Shooting dominated the news cycle for weeks and no one would let you forget how important the […]

Space Force: Dumb Name, Great Idea

Space Force sounds like a bad ’80s B-rated movie that you’d watch on the Syfy Channel when there is nothing left. It’s either that or watch the newest Sharknado with an even dumber plot than the last one. But, unlike Sharknado, the U.S. Space Force has a better, grander idea that will bring the U.S. […]

Border Crossing Made Easy

If you’ve ever found yourself stuck on the other side of the US border without your ID or passport, money or a general sense of knowing where you are, then look no further than the Bienvenidos app.

According to their website, “Bienvenidos is the world’s first community-based navigation app for immigration.” Also, since illegal immigration has been so hard on people in the past, this app uses “crowdsourced data from users; Bienvenidos provides real-time info about the best immigration (and drug smuggling) routes to cross the US-Mexico Border.” This app has everything an immigrant hoping to cross the desert could possibly need to make their journey to the United States safer.

Why the Salcido Story Matters

On January 26, in a viral video, Gregory Salcido asked his students to “think about the people who you know who are over there—your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever—they’re dumbs–ts. They’re not like high-level thinkers, they’re not academic people, they’re not intellectual people.”

He even went as far as saying “that military service members are ‘the freakin’ lowest of our low. Not morally—I’m not saying they make bad moral decisions—they’re not talented people.” He voiced his personal opinions of the failure of US warfighting policies in the Middle East and Vietnam.

The Death of Journalism

I hate going on Facebook anymore. There’s not one day that goes by that I am not bombarded with the most redundant and non-journalistic reporting from both the left and right media companies. Fox News and CNN at this point are just trying to outperform each other in rating and controversies. But what’s worse is that all the things we should know about are locked away in some editor’s desk for being “unclickable.”

Stay or Go? An Argument Against Isolationism

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. – Edmund Burke There it is again, chemical weapons being used on the battlefield in Syria against the civilian population.  This time at least 70 people were killed. If ever there was a lesson to learn from the Great […]

Red vs Blue: The Continuing Struggle for Power Among D.C. Gangs

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines […]
