By Alan Caruba Friday, May 24, 2013
In the town I called home for more than sixty years, among my earliest memories was joining my Father to attend the annual Memorial Day ceremonies. There was always a march to the appropriately named Memorial Park. It included veterans, scout troops, police and fire contingents, and the high school band.More...
Obama’s ‘Iron Curtain’ descends on America
By Judi McLeod Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Under the Marxist rule of President Barack Hussein Obama, Uncle Sam morphs day by day into ‘Uncle Satan’. Ironic when contemplating that Iran has long called America “the great Satan”.More...
‘The Incident in the Rose Garden Rain’

Armed by the arrogant confidence that comes via a protective circle of self-serving, back-scratching politicians (including Republican ones), who do nothing to deter his increasing taunts against all things American, President Barack Hussein Obama continues to publicly trash the cherished image of the military.More...

Checkmate: From global makeover to takeover
By Doug Hagmann Wednesday, May 8, 2013
We’re rapidly approaching a potential checkmate moment in the Mideast. There are 41 nations plus the U.S., for a total of 42 nations currently participating in military maneuvers off the coast of Iran. Despite all of the saber rattling about Iran, we are being deceived about the coming global battle, which will almost certainly begin in Syria, not Iran.More...
Argentina contra España
By Carlos Alberto Montaner Sunday, April 22, 2012
(FIRMAS PRESS) España no tiene cómo lograr que los argentinos compensen adecuadamente a Repsol por la expropiación de la empresa. Es una batalla perdida. Los argentinos pagarán lo que les dé la gana y cuando les dé la gana. Hace una década declararon la suspensión de pagos de la deuda soberana, algo mucho más grave, y no pasó nada. Impunidad total. Borges opinaba que los peronistas no eran ni buenos ni malos. Eran incorregibles. Tenía razón. Este episodio lo demuestra.More...

FL Technics Jets marks the year with the service of 20 business jets
Thursday, November 8, 2012
FL Technics Jets, a global provider of integrated maintenance, repair and overhaul solutions for business aviation, is celebrating a one year anniversary since receiving its first business jet in autumn 2011.Preparing for the colder months: a winter of opportunity for pilots?
Thursday, November 1, 2012
For contractual pilots, the seasonality of the airline industry continues to hold bearing on the number of flying jobs available. Indeed, the onset of winter often heralds significant hardship for jobless pilots as airlines roll back their operations and charter companies dismiss unneeded staff. Moreover, last February marked a winter of discontent for European carriers, with the culmination of ongoing financial difficulties resulting in the collapse of both Malév and Spanair, amid wider industry losses and cut backs. However, despite the slower growth profile customary for European carriers over the colder months, the experts at AviationCV point out this doesn’t necessarily mean reduced opportunities for out-of-work pilots.
You Can Never Have Enough Progressivism
Saturday, March 2, 2013
One of the many solicitations I received in the mail today asked for $5 donation in order to meet their modest $15,000 goal. The letter was asking me to help them support the not-so-modest “progressive vision for America.” Their vision for America was spelled out in the first line:Flight of the U.S.A.

Imagine the United States as one big jumbo jet on a lengthy journey to what our travel brochures described as the land of “milk and honey.” We are all passengers aboard this marvelous airbus of state-of-the art comfort along with a litany of well-trained pilots, crew members and support personnel, each taking their respective shifts on this multi-generational journey. The flight is complete with in-flight movies, food service, all of the latest technology, along with a flight staff seemingly dedicated to our comfort.

LA SOMBRA DEL BIZARRO

Yo… Robert M. Sánchez--- que me encuentro con La Total Conciencia bien aguda, La Mente muy Iluminada, El Cuerpo Sano, en El Juicio Perfecto y con El Control Completo de todas Las Facultades Motoras, aseguro que soy El Enemigo más acérrimo que tiene La Democracia, El Comunismo, El Socialismo, El Capitalismo, El Nazismo, El Imperialismo, La monarquía, El Fascismo y La Anarquía porque son unas organizaciones diabólicas que manipulan Las Masas y Las Mentes de Los Débiles que se encuentran en todos Los Pueblos de La Tierra y que no sirven mas que para esclavizar a La Humanidad. Pero ya no tarda mucho tiempo en que serán perseguidos por El Anti-Cristo para quitarles todo El Dinero que le robaron a Las Naciones y que después serán desterrados de El Planeta.
Rock-Star Atheist to Fearless Missionary
By Artin John Tsambazis --Features
US/Canada – Compared to the life of most music stars, Fr. Dr Themi Adams is wilder and braver than even the hardest of rockers. However, he doesn’t do it by shocking crowds or taunting the media – but rather by delivering aid to some of Africa’s most dangerous communities.

EASTER SEASON….THE GAME OF LIFE

As a child, I loved the game MONOPOLY, especially collecting money while passing “GO”, landing on “free parking”, and “charging” for rent. I was optimistic on picking cards from the"Community Chest” but apprehensive on the “Chance” pile.
