One man's view of the world, from the top of this great big rock somewhere in the middle of God's Country, with an eye toward freedom....or at least some way to get back down without goin' over the edge.

The Domino Theory (International Detente 101)

To all those who screamed loud and long about how Cowboy George's "Wild West Showdown at the Baghdad Cafe" was "the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time".....


Sit down, children, and pay attention. Who knows? You might just learn something.

History is happening it happened 14 years ago, courtesy of another straight-shooter. think the Iron Curtain just fell down by itself?

An introduction to an old friend....

Well, okay...he's not an old friend. In fact, he likely has no idea who I am. But I've been listening to him for so long, I might as well be sleeping on his couch.

I hereby begin the new phase of this humble blog's existence by introducing you to someone whose counsel is wise, whose moustache is handsome (just ask him, he'll tell ya), and whose experience speaks of an old hand in the trenches. (And you oughta see his sidekick....YOWZA!)

Ladies and gentlemen, I present for your approval...Jim Quinn, proprietor and co-founder of The War Room, billed as "America's Morning Show" on Pittsburgh's FM news talk station 104.7 and Wheeling, WV's 1170 AM. Together with his faithful co-host/research specialist/all-around-angel-of-the-airwaves "Radio Rose" Tennent, they have been brightening and enlightening listeners in and around the Ohio River valley for many a year with their own brand of conservative entertainment and comment. And now that they've been syndicated, they have also reached the ears of (and done some collaborating with) the likes of Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and the grand-daddy of 'em all, Rush Limbaugh.

While you're there, look for the link titled "The Quick Start Guide to the Quinn in the Morning Show". This'll give you, in a nutshell, the crux of their philosophy. Folks, these guys are fun AND informative. Check 'em out.

It's been so long, you're welcome back, my friends....

Yeah, yeah, I know....been way too long since my last post. So sue me, I've been busy.

There will be more soon. Bear with me.
