Once again, football season is upon us. Hooray! I can take off my blacking armband, signifying my mourning of the end of last

season, as we all gear up for the next.

My New England Patriots reported in yesterday to begin 2017 training camp, as did many other teams, and the Hall of Fame game is now only a week away.

This is time of year when all teams are equal – although some are a lot more equal than others. Every team is undefeated – all the big name free agents have been snapped up, and fans are excited to see what their teams’ new acquisitions are capable of.

However, there is a once-marquee player who is still unemployed. That is of course the former star quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick. The once stud signal-caller who guided his team to the playoffs, and a Superbowl just a few years (okay – it was five), has now become pro football’s number one outcast. read more

Weapon Wednesday – More Problems for The F-35

Previously unseen footage of the F-35 in flight testing lays bare an important fact: the work of test pilots is dangerous. A video of a F-35 Joint Strike Fighter flight safety seminar shows two incidents in which pilots risked their lives while attempting what will eventually be commonplace tasks—midair refueling and a night landing on a warship.

The All-Inclusive Democrat Package Deal

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The other day I heard some one describe modern liberalism or leftist ideology like an all-inclusive resort. At first I merely chuckled at the thought. But despite the humor I found in it, it struck me as being dead-on accurate.

For those unfamiliar, an all-inclusive resort is the best vacation one will ever experience – but only if you can take advantage of the amenities. You pay one price, and that payment includes everything the resort has to offer.

If you can’t take advantage, or wish more of a bare bones or a-la carte experience, an all-inclusive experience is definitely not for you. An all-inclusive vacation is just that. The customer doesn’t have the option of a-la carte. You pay for all or nothing. It’s like ObamaCare. Everything is included, whether you care to partake or not.

And as I stated – this is also the definition of modern leftism and the Democrat Party. If you are a committed liberal, you are expected to collectively support all leftist causes. It’s all-inclusive. read more

Bird-Like Dinosaur Found

A colorful bird-like dinosaur that was almost as big as a man has been identified by scientists.

The blue and beige feathered creature stalked the Canadian ‘badlands’ of Alberta 71 million years ago.

Its remains had been dug up over the years in what is now Red Deer River Valley, a famous dinosaur graveyard, but it’s only now that a true picture of it has emerged.

The study suggests that more detailed studies of fragmentary fossils may reveal more, currently unrecognized, species.

Joke of the Day

A doctor goes out and buys the best car on the market, a brand new Ferrari GTO It is also the most expensive car in the world, and it costs him $500,000.

He takes it out for a spin and stops at a red light.

An old man on a Moped, looking about 100 years old, pulls up next to him. The old man looks over at the sleek shiny car and asks, “What kind of car ya got there, sonny?”

The doctor replies, “A Ferrari GTO. It cost half a million dollars!”

“That’s a lot of money,” says the old man. “Why does it cost so much?”

“Because this car can do up to 250 miles an hour!” states the doctor proudly.

The Moped driver asks, “Mind if I take a look inside?” read more

WND Exclusive – Does it matter what Reagan would do about Obamacare?

For the past few days I’ve seen many articles asking, “What would Reagan do about Obamacare?”

It seems the discussion’s genesis was an article written by Avik Roy for the National Review entitled, “How Would Ronald Reagan Have Replaced Obamacare?”

Although I loved President Reagan, my knee-jerk reaction was, “I don’t care.” Obamacare is unconstitutional, as would be any “replacement” plan. As much as I respected Ronald Reagan – heck, I joined the Navy in part due to Reagan being commander in chief – if he advocated for any federal involvement in the dispensation of private health insurance or health care, I know I should disagree. Of course, that’s easy for me to say – I’m not president. read more

Strange Signals from Space

A star located just 11 light-years away from Earth is sending out ‘strange’ radio signals leaving experts baffled.

The mysterious signals appear to be coming from Ross 128, a little-explored red dwarf star which is not known to have any planets surrounding it.

Researchers said the unusual signals were picked up in ‘almost periodic’ bursts, and added further investigation is needed to find the source of the signals.
