Resonate

Back in the 90’s I was stationed in Tennessee for a few months where I was learning the basics of aircraft electrical systems. We had four-man rooms and every floor had a communal “head”, aka, a bathroom. There were toilet stalls on one side, sinks and mirrors on the other, and a large open room […]

Patriarchy and Men

I’ve changed my opinion a lot over the last couple of years. I’ve grown to distrust pretty much everything that comes out of gender studies. Most everyone that I come across who exclaims #woke is usually someone trying to push an agenda of some sort. Some of the most oppressive and dogmatic thought I’ve ever come across comes from those who profess to fight such oppression.

Thor will smash your face in

Thor was the muscle of Asgard. When the gods needed their bouncer to come and trounce a troublesome giant, they looked to Thor. You need security. Basic needs. Before you do anything, you establish your patrol base, 360 security, and ensure your weapons are all faced out. Only then can you go to sleep (actually, after planning, maintenance, comms, R and S, egress routes, etc…). Before you can have arts and literature and other benefits of culture, you need safety.

Sex

Can’t sleep and some thoughts hit me. Since I’m already up I can either let them spin around for hours and keep me awake, or I can quickly jot them down and then go to bed. Not sure where to start, but I’ll lead off with this… I hate people Okay, I don’t really. I […]

Running in a what?

I started running marathons when I was 39. Before then I rarely ran, if ever. I did a marathon because it was on my bucket list of things to do. I’ve logged a lot of miles over the years and really started to hit my stride in the last 2 years. Oddly, it wasn’t until […]

Warriors: The Feminine Makes Us Stronger

We have constrained our values of what is useful and effective within a context of war to also define what is right and wrong outside of war. The harsh necessities of war have given us our moral guidance as human beings and are limit the natural proclivities of our very nature to the basest level imaginable. Great human souls can indeed wage great war, yet war does not make great souls. If it did we would not have the number of veterans who still struggle with life after war as we do today.

Macwriter

Mac kills PC in so many areas. I find that my workflow crashes to a halt when I have to go into the office and use their Windows systems. I hesitated in downloading any Microsoft programs onto my Mac because I don’t like anything about them, how they are organized. Even using Excel, which is […]

Gays in the Military

There are times when I am in a military base or organization and when the topic of non-heterosexuals in the military comes up in a group and lots of comments come around. There is generally a lot of hoopla given to some sort of harsh statement as the following: “I don’t want those ‘gays’ seeing […]
