Russians Are Laughing in Obama’s Face

Posted on March 27th, 2014 by Ben Spera

putin laugh Russians Are Laughing in Obamas FaceIn a recent article the Washington Examiner quoted Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) as saying “The only thing Putin respects is strength… At this point the Russians are openly laughing at the president.” It’s not just Russia, it seems the entire world is laughing at Obama. The only people with any fear of his regime are American citizens. The increasingly violent police, federal authorities and tyrannical legislation and executive orders leaves my head spinning.

Sgt. Maj. of Marine Corps Stands Up for Junior Marines to Congress

Posted on February 27th, 2014 by Ben Spera

sgtmaj Sgt. Maj. of Marine Corps Stands Up for Junior Marines to CongressDespite the fact that it’s a fundamental principle of leadership, taught in NCO and SNCO schools alike, it’s becoming very rare to see senior NCOs and officers stand up for their Marines. The few leaders in possession of a certain level of “testicular fortitude” (e.g. Gen. Mattis) seem to be being shown the door en masse recently. That’s why I needed to give a nod of respect to Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Micheal Barrett, who spoke his mind to Congress at a recent congressional hearing focused on cutting funding to military commissaries. The senior enlisted of three other U.S. military branches were also present at the hearing, however, the Coast Gaurd’s was not present. Read more…

Troops Fed Up with Ridiculous Rules of Engagement

Posted on February 25th, 2014 by Ben Spera

marinesafghan Troops Fed Up with Ridiculous Rules of EngagementI experienced escalating ridiculousness of the rules of engagement between my two deployments to Iraq in 2004 and 2006. I can only imagine how asinine they have become at this point. When the inanimate property of foreign individuals is of more importance to our government than the lives of our servicemen, we have a serious corruption of priorities. When calls for artillery from our men are denied due to the possibility of collateral damage to civilian property, we have a problem. Read more…

Law Would Brand Speed-trap Towns with Colored Signs

Posted on February 24th, 2014 by Ben Spera

speed limit sign Law Would Brand Speed trap Towns with Colored SignsA great idea out of Tennessee that didn’t make it past state legislators. A bill from 2006 would have required towns that generates more than half of its revenue from speeding tickets to use blue-colored speed limit signage. The motivation behind this bill was certain towns that intentionally lower speed limits to unreasonably low levels in order to generate more revenue from speeding tickets. This undermines the purpose of speed limits, which is supposed to be for public safety, not government revenue. But we all know how that goes.

Ron Paul Launches Snowden Clemency Petition

Posted on February 14th, 2014 by Ben Spera

snowdenfact Ron Paul Launches Snowden Clemency PetitionFormer U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has launched a petition to grant NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden clemency so he may return home. Russia had granted him amnesty for a term of 1 year, but this amnesty runs out in in 5 months, at the end of July. Paul said of Snowden “[He] sacrificed his livelihood, citizenship, and freedom by exposing the disturbing scope of the NSA’s worldwide spying program. Thanks to one man’s courageous actions, Americans know about the truly egregious ways their government is spying on them.” Edward wants to return to his home but needs some degree of assurance that he won’t be persecuted.

The Top 10 Richest Members of Congress

Posted on September 23rd, 2013 by Ben Spera

capitol dollars rect 150x150 The Top 10 Richest Members of CongressPersonally, ranking the wealthiest members of Congress feels like splitting hairs, but at the same time, it does prove a point. There is no shortage of millionaires among our elected representatives, and despite the fact that Republicans are labeled as the wealthy man’s party, they are actually slightly outnumbered by Democrats when it comes to wealth.

How do these public servants amass so much wealth on a measly public servant’s salary of $174,000 per year. They must moonlight as magicians as well.
