On Memorial Day, I sometimes get thanked for my service (US Navy, 1985-1991), but that’s what Veteran’s Day is for. Today, it’s about the men who sealed their oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution with their blood.

Springer’s Blog has some thoughts on that.

And his post reminds me to ask the question “what happened to the guys who raised the flag on Iwo Jima?”

IwoJima.com answers to my satisfaction.

Portland, Oregon is now home to the world’s first vegan mini-mall.

You’ll need to listen fast during some parts. They enunciate, but you’ve still got to focus to follow what they’re saying.

A new report shows that 200 billion barrels of oil may lay beneath the Antarctic ice.

That’s good news. Obama was running out of promising places to close to drilling.

A federal court ruled that investigators do not need a search warrant to obtain cellphone tower location records

If you want total privacy, guess you’ll need to rent space on Hillary’s email server.

30 Uses for WD-40

I’m kinda iffy on their suggestions for using a petroleum distillate near food storage or on your drinkware, but otherwise a lot of these seem like good/useful ideas.

Baltimore’s Mayor said that owners of looted stores should rebuild instead of leaving, calling it a “smart investment”.

Only if they’re selling guns, alarms, or private security.

In San Francisco, one business owner said he supported a minimum wage hike, until he did the math and found out what it’d cost him.

Yup. Sometimes a conservative is just a liberal who ran out of other people’s money.

Public schools near DC are considering making “gender identity” a protected class.

Good luck. All this will get them is dudes wearing prom dresses saying “you can’t flunk me!”
