I heard on television this weekend that there is a very real possibility that Russia and China are both closing the gap in regards to their air power and could even surpass the U.S. in a few years, which is a most frightening prospect to say the very least.

To watch what unfolded in Baltimore this past week is an unsettling experience to say the least, no matter what level of society or affluence you come from. It should serve as a wakeup call to all, because Baltimore, Ferguson et al., is not the four-alarm we tend to think of it as being. Rather, it is the fuse that could very well ignite powder kegs all over the country.

The 70’s were a time of change, a huge shifting of the generational tectonic plates, an influx of new ideas, new music and the lessening of moral standards. The "if it feels good do it" generation was coming out of its shell, influenced by radical "tune in, turn on and drop out" revolutionaries who sought to change America to suit their own lawless purposes.

I sometimes wonder if President Obama's knowledge of history reaches back past the days of the radicals, the flower children, the draft-card burning and draft dodging of the late 1960’s and if he hasn't read a lot more Saul Alinsky than Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt.

The simple, blue-collar society I was raised in would probably be considered, if not poor, at least far down the financial scale. We lived in a rented house, which had electricity, but our plumbing consisted of a hand pump on the back porch and a sanitary facility you had to walk to.

Every spring, as the earth renews itself, we celebrate what is arguably the most important day in the Christian faith, Easter, or Resurrection Day as it is sometimes referred to by believers.

Whether you're at a fast food outlet, an airline gate, at a ballgame or just walking down the street, if you were to count the number of people either talking or texting on cell phones you'd probably be utterly amazed.

America has had several tragic events recently involving police officers and black males that have resulted in death and injury, events that have further heated up an already inflammatory racial environment to the boiling point and beyond. It’s a sad fact at best, and a potentially explosive one at worst.

President Obama's unwillingness to use the phrase "radical Islamist terrorists" may seem like superficial semantics to those who defend his every move, but to a lot of us, it has much deeper implications.

I guess it's my earliest remembrances of Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, MacArthur and their ilk that formed my image of leaders.

The framers of the constitution added the second amendment for some very good reasons, and it's not only for hunting, target practice and personal protection, as most people tend to believe.

The pressing problems of the United States of America parallel its national debt—huge, growing and accumulating the kind of interest this nation can ill afford to pay.

There was a time in America when a man who shirked the duty of supporting his family was looked down on, a social outcast, a pariah, without respect and little companionship. Anyone who brought children into the world and didn't put a roof over their heads and food on the table was held in contempt, ostracized and belittled as a man who was on the very bottom rung of society, beneath the contempt of the hardworking generation of responsible citizens who built this nation and made it what it was.

If anybody has ever asked for a no holds barred, no rules of engagement, kill or be killed war it is the bunch of bloodthirsty radical Islamic crazies who call themselves The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, ISIS or The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, ISIL. Levant also encompasses Israel.

When Al Gore released his “An Inconvenient Truth” movie a few years ago he opened up a can of worms that crawl the earth to this day.

I only heard the sound bites from President Obama's address at the National Prayer Breakfast and don't know the full extent of his remarks. But what I got from what I did hear seemed to be a call for people to understand that what the evil ISIS is doing is not a part of Islam and that present day Christians should be carrying around the shame from events that happened many centuries ago.

There has never been a time in the history of America when almost half the citizens were getting some kind of government subsidy.

Being born in the Deep South during the days of the Jim Crow Laws, with the segregation and pervasive persecution that everyone denied but practiced under the guise of "separate but equal," I am quite familiar with prejudice.

The recent rash of homegrown terrorists has again raised the question of, “Why would a person born, educated and protected by his homeland suddenly turn into a vicious enemy of the state?”

The subject I broach in this column transcends political parties and partisan politics. It is a chronic and growing shame that should rank at the top of the pile in the business of any president and Congress, no matter which party holds the majority or who is in the White House. It is not a blanket indictment of those dedicated doctors, nurses and other health care workers who really care about our troops and, with limited resources and questionable leadership, have tried to maintain a standard of care for them.
