Not every boy wants a pony, a truck or a puppy; but every boy wants and needs a father figure in his life. When a young boy loses his father during military service, the loss can be crushing. Had his father not volunteered to be one of the 1% of Americans who serve in uniform, he could have grown up with a male role model by his side to set an example of courage and to celebrate his achievements.
Let me tell you the story of Operation 300, a non-profit organization that helps children cope with the loss of a father and continues the legacy of the late SEAL Team 6 member and father of two, Aaron C. Vaughn. Continue reading
“No Man Left Behind” is an American adage of chivalry and solidarity that we do not always practice. Young men and women in military service risk their health and careers for the majority of us who never lift a finger in battle—unless it’s to control simulated snipers wielding digitized NA-45s in a computer game like Call of Duty.
Go stand before a mirror. Take a look at your hands; your feet; and your head. If you’re like me, you’re fortunate to have all ten digits and a brain that has never been riddled with trauma. Your body is free from shrapnel. We are very fortunate, while some of our brothers and sisters are not—and they need our help. Continue reading
Homeless American veterans shiver in the bitter cold while illegal immigrants receive subsidized four-year degrees.
At midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold, Christ was born in a stable after his parents were turned away by every innkeeper. Joseph and Mary did not respond with entitlement: “If you don’t shelter us, then you’re racist.” Rather, they used their ingenuity to find an alternative birthplace for their son among friends—farm animals, shepherds, kings, and angels—beneath the light of an extraordinary star. Continue reading
How does the first black president reward blacks for voting for their hero?
With an executive order: “Go to the back of the employment line. Get behind illegal immigrants, including carriers of tuberculosis and criminals at large. Blessed are the politically useful and illegal immigrants are more useful than African Americans.” Continue reading
Secret stories of soldiers stabbing their fellow soldiers in the back read like crime thrillers. Our bravest soldiers and veterans are increasingly the victims of abuse by other soldiers with more political clout.
President Obama boasts of his ability to “evolve” on gay marriage. He has also evolved on other issues, such as his level of respect for the military. That is, if regression is a form of evolution. Continue reading
Joan Rivers crushed 9/11 terrorists by laughing. So should you.
If the doyenne of dark comedy were still alive, the Republican Party would win the 2016 presidential election by nominating Joan Rivers. First, because the GOP would be running an octogenarian grandmother against a slightly younger grandmother (Hillary Clinton) and Democrats could not accuse Republicans of attacking Clinton’s age, sex or grandmotherhood. Second, because Rivers had a self-depreciating sense of humor whereas Hillary has a mean streak (think Clinton’s dismissal of cookie-baking housewives or her “What difference does is make?!” screech). Third, Rivers would have been more adept at handling the fusillade of terrorism threatening America.
Sadly, Rivers passed away last week at the feisty and energetic age of 81. However, as we approach the anniversary of the 9/11/01 and 9/11/12 (Benghazi) attacks, let’s take a cue from Rivers’ healthy but unconventional approach to tragedy. Continue reading
Raechel Richards walked into her Jacksonville, FL home on August 13 to find the love of her life, retired Marine sniper, Sgt. Robert Richards, lying dead on their floor. He was only 28 years old.
Rob Richards was too young to die. Strong, smart and kind—he had enormous talent and potential. He gave everything he had during his repeat deployments to Afghanistan during which he suffered severe IED-inflicted wounds and incurred TBI. Tragically, the cause of his death appears to be an adverse reaction to the drugs treating his pain and PTSD. Continue reading
Forget roses. This Valentine’s Day, give her a gift that shows you love her whole body and soul. Give her a gun.
Your Valentine—whether she’s your wife, girlfriend, daughter or sister—deserves something very special. What could be more sentimental than a tool she can use to defend herself? When you give her a gun, you will be showing her that she is extremely precious and valuable to you. Continue reading
Women should be allowed to carry concealed firearms on college campuses. Instead, President Obama favors Gun Free Zones, which endanger women’s health.
One in five female college students are sexually assaulted or raped according to a new report issued last week by the White House Council on Women and Girls. Declaring that sexual assault “affects every one of us,” Obama picked up his pen and signed a piece of paper (a “memorandum”) calling for the creation of a campus rape response task force. Continue reading
It’s January. If you resolved to lose weight, forget the cotton ball diet. To become a lean, mean muscle machine: eat venison.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo feign to keep us healthy and safe by restricting our dietary choices and attacking our constitutional right to use guns for hunting and self-defense. Both men are dead wrong about health, hunting and guns. Continue reading
