A few thoughts and observations while we’re in the first real heat wave of the year.

It’s an El Nino year, so everyone in these parts and westward is stoked about the long-term forecasts starting in August and running through February of next year predicting wetter than normal conditions for the West, Southwest and Great Plains. Of course, that also means a drier fall and winter back home, but after last year I don’t think my folks and my Goodboys mates will mind that one bit.

Here’s a great article on Sherman’s “March to thee Sea”, which we commemorate the 150th anniversary of this year. Dave E. also had a great post on this as well. General Sherman has always been one of my favorite war heroes because he as much as anyone understood the true nature and necessary brutality of war so that it be something we not get too fond of – something that this country has lost. You look at Vietnam, President G.H.W. Bush’s actions in Kuwait, and W’s wars with Afghanistan and Iraq, and what you see are failed excursions seeking a political outcome, not victory. The purpose of war is to win by killing as many of the enemy as possible in order to achieve victory as quickly as possible, no more, no less. Sherman understood that, as did Grant and Lee, and our present-day Commanders-in-Chiefs would do well to understand that as well. To send American men and women into half-hearted engagements with murky objectives serves the cause of no one and nothing.

This is what happens when you have political activist and sympathetic judges without a clue as to the rule of law and what religious freedom means. I mean where does it all end? If I’m a Nazi Holocaust denier and I’m having a bash, can I force a bakery to bake me a cake with an Auschwitz design on it? If I’m the leader of a KKK chapter can I force a bakery to bake me a cake with a tree and a noose?

Because liberal activists are never satisfied (in fact, I’ve come to believe they’re the most miserable people on the face of the earth), now that gay marriage is pretty much the de facto law of the land, expect this to be their next “human rights” push. What will it mean for you? No more men’s and women’s rooms, and unisex bathrooms, for one. And no more men’s and women’s dorms at college. No more academies and schools for men and women. With all due respect, these people are nuts. And, sad to say, my generation is to blame for this madness.

D-Day was 70 years ago, check these fantastic pics out. they will bring tears to your eyes.

Another day, another climate change activist’s admission of deceit. Wow, great timing for President Obama’s newly-announced EPA climate-change regulations this week, huh?
