A Lie is a Lie. Especially When Wearing the Uniform

I watch or read a plethora of different news feeds daily, but I confess, most of my TV time is spent watching Fox News, because I’m a conservative. Given that, I’ve been a little embarrassed by the coverage of the latest LTG Michael Flynn saga.


To hear the talking heads on Fox, the FBI was duplicitous and sneaky, endeavoring to gain a perjury trap against Flynn, and because of that, Flynn is comple

“When she had asked him how he was able to kill two men with his bare hands, he had gone into asshole mode, telling her not to look a gift horse in the mouth.”
Brad Taylor, One Rough Man

“In my mind, the world is split neatly into two groups: meat-eaters and plant-eaters. Nothing is wrong with either one. Both are necessary. One contributes much, much more to society than the other. The other is necessary to protect the contribution. I’m a meat-eater. My existence allows the plant-eater to contribute. Some plant-eaters, living in a so-called civilized world, call me evil, but at the end of the day, when the bad man comes and the plant-eater’s praying for a miracle, I’m what shows up.”
Brad Taylor, One Rough Man

John Thanks for the add and Dewey kicks ass! Won your book, No Fortunate Son, through this site. Merry X-mas and peace to you and your family.


Samuel Can't wait for The Polaris Protocol, the "epic threat" of the story looks highly unique and asymmetric.


Bernard Cenney A fantastic writer! Inspired, accurate, engrossing, clever, and fun!One Rough Man
