I just watched the U.S. Army Field Band play and sing the "Battle Hymn of the Republic". and yes it brought tears to my eyes. It always does that, just like watching the Victory at Sea episode covering Pearl Harbor, where I finally have been. Julia Howe wrote the lyrics after seeing a review of the Army of the Potomac in November of 1861. Not all of the verses are sung nowadays, but all are worth reading. George McClellan was a great organizer, I will concede that, but a failure as a battle ...More Read More

Well, I must admit I would be interested in knowing what the moderators reactions would be to my posting all of the details on setting up a chemical weapons service can be found at the Combined Arms Research Library Digital Library. Between the stuff from World War One which you can find in the General Military History section, 1900 to 1939, and the World War 2 Operational Documents, there is everything that you need. That just from US documents. When you add in the enemy stuff, you really h ...More Read More

Well, I will have to see how much longer I am permitted to be here. Disagreeing with a moderator normally results in banning, justly or unjustly. So just waiting.

Still here, but it appears that I definitely got under the skins of a couple of our moderators. Always nice to know that all Marc does is write checks for the site payments, while the others do what they wish.

Again a lot to think about, aside from the idiocy being blathered about by the so-called "main stream media" or more properly called, the marketing arm of the Democratic Extremists. Illinois junior senator managed to embarrass herself and the state by complaining about Mt. Rushmore being "stolen" from the Sioux, who had stolen it from someone else. Some one needs to educate her that by her standards, all of Illinois was "stolen" from the Sauk, Fox, and Potowatomi tribes, so is she interested ...More Read More

There is a lot going on there days. Between anarchists and other insane people puling down statues, and even burning one of an ELK in Portland, it is hard to follow all of the insanity. I guess the ones that burned the Elk down had a strong dislike towards herbivores competing with them for greenery. Then there was the one to Albert Pike, who commanded a force of Indians from the then Indian Territory who were fighting for the Confederates. It would be interesting to bring up the fact that ...More Read More

Well, in some areas, 1984 is rapidly approaching, with the systematic attack on any and all historical statues which do not meet the standards of the "extremely politically correct" among the near-anarchists currently claiming to be on the forefront of history. I suspect that very few have ever read Orwell, but they certainly are following his sketch for "Big Brother". I fear that when you start tearing down statues of Columbus, Washington, and Jefferson, you have crossed the bar for any symp ...More Read More

The latest battle-cry, or insane scream to be more accurate, from the far-left is to "defund the police", with Minneapolis actually trying to do so. This should be an extremely interesting experiment, best viewed as a distance, preferably from another state not adjacent to Minnesota. The biggest question I have is how long it will take businesses, and residents, to leave the city, never to return. At least on company has already announced it was leaving, but there are likely those who will si ...More Read More

I had hoped to get away from commenting on current events, but they do have a way of intruding on my best intentions. I have been working on Space: 1889 and thinking about having some sort of rift between the Cepheus Engine sector I am working on and the Solar System of Space: 1889. However, back to my not-politically correct views.

Well, the Minneapolis City Council has decided, in its "collective wisdom", to disband the police department and replace it with something else, to be determin ...More Read More

Here are some of my thoughts for my Space: 1889 universe.

Mars is NOT hot. Mars gets 43 per cent of the isolation from the Sun as the Earth does. Every allowing for some carbon dioxide greenhouse effect to boost the temperature, Mars is not going to be hot. Ninety degrees Fahrenheit might be a hot day near the equator. The Coprates might be warm and humid, but not sweltering.

Corollary to the above: The tall, slender Martians were adequate clothing to stay warm, and that does includ ...More Read More

Surface Thought: I got an email from DriveThru looking for contributions from publishers for a Black Lives Matter support bundle. I debated giving them a very blunt reply as to my views regarding that, but decided that they might just decided to block me from hereon. Politically Correct and all that. I will take note of which publishers do participate, and make notes as to not patronize them again.

Deeper Thought: Some, including George Floyd's family, as demanding that first degree mur ...More Read More
