How does Humanism Work?

UNDERSTANDING HUMANISM: Humanism is Founded on the Notions of Factual and Moral Relativism NOTE: this is a long post, but it connects many dots.  Please consider reading it all the way through.  It may help you see the bigger picture but, more importantly to me, it may help you provide me with additional pieces tot hat…

God is Trying to Warn Us

PROPHECY IN THE HEADLINES: The Book of Esther; Netanyahu’s Speech; the 9/11 Harbinger; Saudi Arabia’s Support of Israel and Biblical/Islamic Prophecy For all the criticism I have aimed at him in the past few months, I still want my readers to know that there is still a great deal to learn from Glenn Beck.  Today,…

CONNECTING THE DOTS: Political Implications of Air Power in a Ground Conflict

CONNECTING THE DOTS: Political Implications of Air Power in a Ground Conflict There are really only two reasons for a politician to commit air power alone to a ground war.  The first is cowardice.  Ground troops in contact with a hostile force — no matter how well — means high casualty rates.  Iraq and Afghanistan are…

URGENT WARNING: Prepare for Nuclear Attack!

From The Oyl URGENT WARNING: Prepare for Nuclear Attack! Look, I understand that we live in a cynical world filled with skeptics, conspiracy theorists and people who are clinically unstable. I am even aware that many people would place me in one of these three groups. That’s why I am unsure how you will take this…

Some Gossip?

Today I ran across this piece which I found interesting in that it is so odd. I suppose it seems odd to me because The New Yorker posted it. I don’t get it. If it were the National Enquirer, sure, I would understand……….maybe. Now I wonder if it’s true. But why would they post anything…

The Caspian Sea Monster

Gotta give it to the Russians – conventional thinking didn’t hold them back: The Lun ekranoplan weighs 380 tons, has a 148-foot wingspan and can launch six anti-ship missiles from flight. Or rather, it could, before it was retired to a forlorn pier in southern Russia. The dilapidated plane is the offspring of an even…

USS Zumwalt

War porn: Looking a bit like an old Civil War Ironclad, the $7 billion DDG 1000 USS Zumwalt will focus on land attacks, relying heavily on its advanced stealth technology to slip in close to shore before unleashing its massive onboard arsenal. A new take on the Zumwalt was published today by the Eric Talmadge at…

I Love the Smell of Napalm in the Morning…

******SPEW ALERT – PUT DOWN THE BEVERAGE AND SWALLOW BEFORE READING****** You have now been warned. This is a delayed post because I was laughing so hard that I just couldn’t copy and paste this morning. I couldn’t retain enough of my fine motor skills to post it. I couldn’t stop thinking about a similar…

Pissed On or Just Pissed Off?

I have a difficult time getting too exercised over Marines urinating on dead Taliban fighters. Especially when I hear that the Taliban denounced this as particularly barbaric. Apparently they are about as self-aware and lack as much a sense of irony as leftist columnist and self styled civility fashionista, Froma Harrop. Unlike the Taliban spokesman,…

Damn. What a JDAM.

Actually it is a MOP – Massive Ordnance Penetrator. Via FOX: Pentagon officials are speaking publicly about the military’s new 30,000-pound massive ordnance penetrator, or MOP, known now as the biggest “bunker-busting bomb” in the world. The Air Force has already received an undisclosed number of these bombs from Boeing, all designed to fit exclusively…

Friday Nite War Porn

The best in home defense – may I present the Dillon M134 Gatling gun. The Dillon M134D Gatling Gun is the finest small caliber, defense suppression weapon available.  It is a six barreled, electrically driven machine gun chambered in 7.62mm NATO and fires at a fixed rate of 3,000 shots per minute.  Gatling Guns typically…

Navy sets record for railgun

Remember this in Transformers 2 – Revenge of the Fallen? Well, reality ain’t so science fictiony any more…or something like that… I know that this is from December but military supremacy never goes out of style. The video below shows a world record test of a 33 megajoule railgun, essentially a cannon that uses pure…
