US Threatens Denmark

US Threatens Denmark

As the world now knows the Danish PM, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, shamelessly enticed President Barack Obama and British PM David Cameron at the funeral of Nelson Mandela. Upon his return to the US the President ordered US warships to the North Sea to threaten the Copenhagen government and have it turn over their flirtatious PM to […]

Heh, I’m pretty sure Oswald was a Marxist

I was ten the day Kennedy was assassinated. I remember the day and following days clearly. I was in fifth grade at a Catholic school when the Mother Superior came on the public address system (know to us the PA!). She informed us what happened and our teacher dragged out the TV and turned it […]

Molon labe

Molon labe (μολὼν λαβέ) The phrase molon labe means “Come and take”. It is a classical expression of defiance reportedly spoken by King Leonidas I in response to the Persian army’s demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae.

Oh, Oh, Toy Soldiers with Guns

I confess to being just a little steamed. I just read where some hair-brained school administrator in Michigan stricken with the horrifying disease of liberal wussification did not allow some little boy to put toy soldiers on the cup cakes he brought to school. Why may you ask? Well, toy soldiers have guns and guns […]
