The President announced his immigration reform

After 27 year in the military (19 years active duty plus reserve time) I retired. I make roughly $2,500 a month. $500 of that is tax free. Because of the 14 years I spent on jump status in the airborne, I have pain issues caused by severe arthritis and compression fractures. But since the VA does not compensate for pain issues I get no disability…..just a portion of my pension that is not taxed. For many reasons (cost of living among them) I have moved overseas (following the laws of the…

Manliness down deep...a bit more

If you have not read my earlier blog entry, “Manliness down deep” the following paragraphs will suffice as an introduction. If you have already read that, continue at the break marked “----------------“.

In the emotional and spiritual realm, men are finding safe places to bare their souls every bit as much as they would bare their bodies in a locker room and showers. No matter what our physical bodies may appear to be, as varied as they are, inside each is a man carrying…

St. Thomas Aquinas on Women

D L quotes St. Thomas wildly out of context.  It's a quote from an objection in the Summa Theologica.  The Summa proceeds by posing a question which St. Thomas will answer.  He first raises objections to his planned answer.  Then he gives his answer, with a reasoned argument and quotes from authorities.  Finally, he responds to the objections.  This is a format used by many writers from that period.

D L's quote is from an objection, so it is a position that St. Thomas…

Now my family is here and I force the smiles and try to get the inflection of my voice right. I…

swiss Watch Fraud Ripoff

According to the Swiss Customs Service, counterfeit watches can be made in such a manner as to require special equipment to confirm near authenticity. A high price is not a guarantee of authenticity. Indications of fineness do not necessarily indicate authenticity. Hallmarks can be forged, and may induce a buyer to believe a piece is made of real gold when it may only be made of a cheap metal plated in gold. However, a gold watch may not be solid gold and still be authentic. Gold plated and…
