A Poem

From my best friend, fellow “Swinger of Birches, (which I  doubt anyone knows what that term means today), brother, and life-long editor, a piece of prose for the day. Thanks you Dennis, God bless you sir!

Memorial Day Celebrations, 2017, at Cemeteries Across the Land

A million American flags, and more, will be unfurled,

And invited dignitaries will righteously attest,

In our many scattered consecrated parks

Where our true American heroes rest.


Some will issue a lofty proclamation

To confirm our most robust determination,

And voice why this day is deemed solemn,

Why we today remember our many, many fallen.


When their spirited dialogs fade,

The forlorn bugles sound,

As the eerie strain of Taps

Echoes o’er those hallowed grounds.


All across our indebted nation, wherever stone statues stand—

From Arlington National, in all directions—proudly, American flags, way upon way.

Will we then take one moment to stroll these sacred lands,

Noting names etched in granite whose uncommon valor won the day.


Will we express our gratitude to those who gave their all,

Honoring their selflessness while fulfilling duty’s call,

And pay full measure to their sacrifice so gallant, so brave,

As we silently nod our head towards each and every grave?


When the sun is setting, and we all are roving home,

Will we pause with pride and honor, and marvel at that we have seen?

And promise to ourselves, and those who silently repose,

To return more often conferring on all who rest there our utmost esteem?







What a Dirt Bag!






What a dirt bag, and his Dad wanted to be my VP so he could tell be a role model and tell us all how to raise children who have respect for the law and those who enforce it?

Linwood Michael Kaine, a son of former 2016 Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, faces criminal charges for allegedly joining in an anti-Trump riot to attack supporters of President Donald Trump in March in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Authorities charged the 24-year-old Kaine with “fleeing police on foot, concealing his identity in a public place, and obstructing legal process,” according to a detailed Twin Cities Pioneer Press report. “When people seek to prevent others who are peacefully assembled from making their voices heard, it threatens the very foundation of our democracy,” a local attorney said Friday after the charges against Kaine and seven others were announced.

Police said Kaine was allegedly part of a violent, masked group:

Security officers saw five people dressed in black leaving the Capitol, including one who threw a smoke bomb inside, according to complaints filed by the city attorney’s office. They went to a nearby spot and “tried to change their appearance by doing things like taking off their black clothing, putting on different jackets or hats, and turning their clothing inside out,” the complaints said.

When police approached, they scattered and ran. Steve Frazer, who was then a St. Paul police senior commander, chased a man who was later identified as Woody Kaine.

A Mar. 7 Twin Cities Pioneer Press report states that Kaine allegedly fought with police after being part of a group that threw a smoke bomb in a government building during a rally for President Trump:

Clad in black and wearing a mask, the youngest son of Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine wrested himself from the cop and then “squared off” with him.

Woody Kaine, 24, was among five masked, black-garbed people suspected of lobbing a smoke bomb minutes earlier inside the Minnesota Capitol rotunda Saturday afternoon.

Officers had chased him down, but Kaine wasn’t about to submit, according to a more detailed account provided Wednesday by St. Paul police.

In the end, it took three officers, a “knee strike” and a chemical spray to subdue Kaine after he was identified as one of the counterprotesters [sic] who allegedly used fireworks or a smoke bomb to disrupt a rally in support of President Donald Trump at the Minnesota State Capitol, according to police spokesman Steve Linders.

Less than two months before his son was arrested after the anti-Trump and anti-free speech riot, Kaine said on MSNBC that progressives must “fight in the streets” after Trump’s election.

“What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there’s the momentum to be able to do this,” Kaine told MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski on Jan. 31.

After his son’s arrest, Kaine issued a statement that did not appear to condemn his son’s alleged actions. Of course not, that not a Democratic trait. They have to spin it and the takes time to figure out how to do it.

“We love that our three children have their own views and concerns about current political issues. They fully understand the responsibility to express those concerns peacefully,” Kaine said, as reported by Breitbart News.  Oh, really? The apple does not fall far from…..well you know the rest.

On Friday, a Kaine spokeswoman doubled down, ignoring allegations that Kaine had taken part in smoke-bombing the Minnesota State Capitol and attempting to dismiss the severity of fighting police officers.

“Today’s announcement of misdemeanor charges against Sen. Kaine’s son contains no suggestion that he engaged in disruptive behavior while at the rally,  (really? Wonder what the charges would be if it were a son from a poor neighborhood?) but are instead focused on his actions as he was arrested after he left. Tim and Anne support their son and hope the matter is resolved soon,” she said to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press.

Kaine was charged the same day the New York Post revealed that police arrested a prominent Democratic leader, Jacob Schwartz, with ties to Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, for child pornography charges, for allegedly having thousands of photos and videos of showing “young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct… on an adult male” on his laptop.

Read some of the comments, they are better than the article. LOL


When will this ever end?

As “Cryin Chuckie” Schummer” would say: We are a country of immigrants. Yep he’s right, but that was long ago Chuckie, too bad you weren’t in that car!

The DUI suspect who plowed his car into a family driving home from Disneyland, leaving a 6-year-old with serious head injuries, was an illegal immigrant who’s been deported 15 times in the last 15 years.

Yet another instance of an accident that never should have happened. Go sanctuary cities, right Democrats?

The crash occurred in San Diego’s San Ysidro district, about a block from the family’s home.

“We heard the tires screeching, but it wasn’t like the screeching of stopping, it was like the screeching of accelerating into the turn,” said Benjamin Lake, the father, who said his son, Lennox, was strapped into a car seat in the back of their vehicle at the time of collision, NBC 7 reported. “I saw bright lights and the next thing I know, I woke up with airbags deployed.”

Emergency responders found the mother unconscious and Lennox with various head and body injuries, including a fractured skull and bleeding from the nose and ears.

The suspect, meanwhile?

Well, he fled the scene, along with his passenger. Investigators found them about a half hour later, several miles from the scene, in a truck that matched the description of the involved vehicle.

Constantino Banda-Acosta, 38, now faces charges of driving under the influence, driving without a license and felony hit and run. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said he was a Mexican national and has been deported 15 times in 15 years. His passenger, unnamed, was also an illegal who’s been previously deported.

To Democrats, these two are victims, though — worthy of protection from the deportation storm.

The boy, meanwhile?

“Right now, he has a lot of swelling and can’t open either of his eyes so he’s scared about why he can’t see,” his father told KSWB.

What a tragedy — and the fact that Democrats, with all their open borders messaging and pro-sanctuary city policies, would side with the illegals over the innocent boy in terms of legal representation and constitutional protection is just despicable.


Lesson in Psychology or Congressional Logic.

You start with a cage containing four monkeys, and
inside the cage you hang a banana on a string, and
then you place a set of stairs under the banana.

Before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb
toward the banana.

You then spray ALL the monkeys with cold water.
After a while, another monkey makes an attempt.  As
soon as he touches the stairs, you spray ALL the
monkeys with cold water.

Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the
stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put away the cold water.  Remove one monkey
from the cage and replace it with a new monkey.  The
new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the
stairs.  To his shock, ALL of the other monkeys beat
the crap out of him.  After another attempt and
attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the
stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original four monkeys,
replacing it with a new monkey.  The newcomer goes
to the stairs and is attacked.  The previous
newcomer takes part in the punishment – with
enthusiasm – because he is now part of the “team.”

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new
monkey, followed by the fourth.  Every time the
newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked.

Now, the monkeys who are beating him up have no
idea why they were not permitted to climb the

Neither do they know why they are participating in
the beating the crap out of the newest monkey. Having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining  monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water.

Nevertheless, not one of the monkeys will try to
climb the stairway for the Banana.

Why, you ask?  Because in their minds, that is the
way it has always been!

This is how today’s House and Senate operates, and
this Is why from time to time, ALL of the monkeys

Not Segregation. Really?

Hey Michael, just who is it that you think will believe this act is not one of segregation? You are living in your own Harvard world Mister. So they raised $27,000 in a year to pull this off. If it had been for worthy, justly cause, you surely could have raised five times that amount in an entire year. Unbelievable, absolutely unbelievable! Even this once great educational institution offered me a free ride, I would never take it. Do the Alumni support all that’s going on here. Sad!

I know it may seem as though I am picking on Harvard University with two posts in a row about it, but hey, do they not deserve all the attention they get? I think they do. Shame on them.

Black graduate students at Harvard University will soon be a part of a first-of-its-kind ceremony.

On May 23, the prestigious university will hold an individual ceremony for black graduate students, according to a report by The Root. The ceremony, which took a year to plan, celebrates “fellowship” not “segregation,” Michael Huggins, a graduate student that will receive his master’s of public policy from the Harvard Kennedy School this month, told The Root.

“This is an opportunity to celebrate Harvard’s black excellence and black brilliance,” Michael Huggins told the online publication. “It’s an event where we can see each other and our parents and family can see us as a collective, whole group. A community.”

More than 120 students have registered to partake in the ceremony, which will be held at Holmes Field, near the Harvard law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The students raised more than $27,000 to pay for the ceremony and a reception that will follow. The student body hopes to organize a similar ceremony for black undergraduate students at Harvard next year, Huggins said.

The graduate students still plan to participate in the school’s main ceremony later this month. Last year, Harvard was named the No. 2 best college for African-Americans by Essence and MONEY magazines. Well now, that’s an impressive set of magazines — NOT!

“This is not about segregation,” Huggins told The Root. “It’s about fellowship and building a community. This is a chance to reaffirm for each other that we enter the work world with a network of supporters standing with us. We are all partners.”
