In a move that is certain to be popular politically, President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday granting full forgiveness of student loan debt incurred by permanently disabled U.A. veterans. The order goes further, clearing eligible veterans from any obligation they have to pay income tax on the loans. Trump said in a speech that he was pressuring states to follow his lead and cancel student loan debt taken out on a state-by-state basis.
“The debt of these disabled veterans…

Get ready for my confession.
I'm white, male and Republican. I dislike the government. I believe in the Constitution. I demand a wall to secure our border.
But I'm just getting started. I've watched violent TV shows and movies for my whole life. I don't watch unless it features cops versus bad guys, the military or the mafia.
And I've owned guns for self-defense my entire adult life. I have a concealed weapon permit.…

George enlisted in the Air Force days before me. We were both at Basic Training at Lackland AFB, Texas. We both were assigned to Griffiss AFB,…Continue

A majority of veterans taking part in a new research study says that the cost and burden of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan outweigh any successes or progress made in either conflict.
A Pew Research Center report published Wednesday states that 64% -- or almost two-thirds -- of veterans polled in a new survey said the Iraq war "was not worth fighting," and 58% said the same about the war in…

Today is Independence Day, a day when we remember who we are as a nation and what we stand for.
OK, most people just cookout and watch things explode in the sky, but some of us tend to think about the important stuff as well. You know what I mean, things like the right to keep and bear arms (naturally) and freedom of speech.…

Not since the 1972 discovery that George McGovern’s vice presidential pick, Thomas Eagleton, had been hospitalized and given electroshock treatments have the Democrats had a worse week than the one we just concluded.
Because Democrats live on social media and watch CNN, they don’t know this yet…
But they had a catastrophic week — hoo, boy,…

They’re wrong about everything. This applies to the wider liberal media, but it especially applies to the environmental Left that has been preaching doomsday since Earth Day was created. The appalling condescension from this crew, despite peddling straight trash for years is exceedingly entertaining. It’s great because you know what the ending is—these folks eating it…hard. We had global…Continue

You won’t read about this in any history book. It didn’t occur on some field of battle.
As Forrest Gump said, “The best place to start is at the beginning.”
George Ferrocarril and I first met due to a mutual interest in trains. I heard him tell another that he was in the Air Force. So when I could I asked him when he served. He told me he was stationed at Griffiss AFB. I asked him when. I was there at the same time. A friendship started.
George and I didn’t work that far…Continue
