Thoughts on various topics


I have enjoyed some things in the recent past especially the rants by the editor of the New Republic and the lady that seems to think good manners by our president is something to be ashamed of. I have been refreshed by a having members of our government not insulting the leaders of other nations and then crying because they don't come running to help when we get in over our heads. It is nice having France take the lead in fighting piracy and the Italians capturing pirates.
