President Biden spoke eloquently in Normandy, remarks by President Biden on the 80th Anniversary of D-Day, Normandy, France, honoring those who fought to free the world of the scourge of Nazism.   However, I believe he should have added four (4) observations.   1. The Nazis had two goals: world domination and the murder of all Jews. 2. The NAZIs failed at both.   3. Putin of Russia was not there. But President Zelenskyy of Ukraine, a part of what was the Soviet Union, was there, with President Biden, French PM Macron, and others. The Soviet Union was allied to Nazi Germany in 1 ..read more

Yesterday, February 10, 2024 was four months since Hamas invaded Israel. The Gaza Metro, according to CNN, 10/28/23. 500 km, 311 miles of tunnels. Where is the outrage that $Billions of Aid that was supposed to go to schools, clothing, homes, hospitals, food, etc. was diverted – stolen – and used for tunnels and weapons? If you want to help the people of Gaza then help them get rid of Hamas. Of course, they need to want this help. And, rescue the Israelis and others held hostage by Hamas and Islamic Jihad (and Iran).

Dwight D. Eisenhower c1952 Copyright by Fabian Bachrach. In 1953 President Eisenhower nominated Charles Wilson to be his Secretary of Defense. Wilson, then the President of General Motors, had overseen GM’s war production during World War II. During his confirmation hearings he was asked if he could make a decision that was bad for GM. His response is remembered as a classic example of arrogance – “What’s good for GM is good for America.” However, that’s not exactly what he said.

Writing for “Virginia Mercury,” Ivy Main says, What is certain is that improvements in wind, solar, battery storage and electric vehicles will continue these technologies’ march to dominance, while fossil fuels become niche.

Dragon breathing fire, knight protecting himself with shield. Image incompatible with the laws of physics. The fire should melt the shield and incinerate the knight. But the energy in the fire should propel the dragon backwards. And what is it’s power source? Is it nuclear or chemical? Either way, it could not fly, or breathe. And would not be interested in gold. The dragon flies, breathes fire, wipes out towns. It is a symbol of awesome power and unbridled greed. Yet, in the traditional American and English stories, which are foundational pillars of American culture, the dragon is defeated; o ..read more
