Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo isn't fit to wear a uniform.  He's not a cop, he's a politician!

They say the pen is mightier than the sword.  I say words are a hammer.  When used skillfully, it can be used to build houses... or it can be used to bash in your skull.

This is the very manifesto posted by Patrick Crusius before he went on his shooting rampage at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

Voters matter to elected officials... unless you live in Cameron County, Texas!  The voters were betrayed by the Commissioners Court, the Precinct 5 Justice Court judges, and Precinct 3 Constable Adrian Gonzalez.

As a cop, gun guy, and former soldier, I've reviewed the limited information released on the mass shooting in Las Vegas.  As odd as it is to say, I'm thankful all the things liberals "hate" about guns were employed in this attack.  Had they not, there would have been a lot more people killed.

I have never lied under oath or falsified a report, so how did I end up branded a "Brady Cop?"  Former Cass County Assistant District Attorney Courtney Shelton lied to me, then lied about me as a matter of official court record.

The American Radio Relay League recently announced the Federal Communications Commission is adding "the felony question" to the amateur radio license application.  Should the FCC evaluate a person's character based on their criminal history?

Okay, keyboard warriors.  Here's your chance to prove you're not an idiot... (or confirm that you are!)  The challenge is simple:  any time you want to pipe up on social media saying someone should be arrested, write up a complaint and probable cause narrative to convince a judge to sign your arrest warrant.

I copied and pasted (with permission) this post a friend of mine made on social media a few days ago (Inauguration Day).  My friend is the author of the post, but for obvious reasons, shall remain nameless.  Read and be inspired.

It seems bigotry is everywhere in society, so it should come as no surprise it's even in the amateur radio hobby. We're not talking about racial bigotry, we're talking about ham snobbery.

I was invited to attend a couple of Wednesday night youth group meetings at a church when a friend of mine became the youth director. Those Wednesday nights became pretty regular, and then turned into Sunday mornings.

My birthday is the day after Christmas. I spent the day relaxing at my father-in-law's house in the Dallas area, watching my facebook feed blow up with birthday wishes, while writing about President Obama's betrayal of Israel and the American people. One of the wishes came from someone I befriended a couple of years ago, and while I wanted to finish the piece I was writing, I wanted to reach out to him.

Trump's post-victory congratulatory phone call with Taiwan's President, Tsai Ing-wen, signaled his administration would revisit the terms of our relationship with China. In one despicable act, President Obama shifted priorities for Trump and his Secretary of State appointee, Rex Tillerson.

I recently went off on a tirade against Dan Rather for a post he made on his facebook page that didn’t set well with me. Rather made the call to his peers in journalism (as well as others) to participate in activism.

It didn’t take both operatives on both sides of the Domestic Cold War long to mobilize in retaliation or support of an exchange this morning between Ivanka Trump and a couple who were kicked off a JetBlue flight from Washington D.C. and San Francisco.

I thoroughly enjoy amateur radio.  A byproduct of that enjoyment was the development of fascination with NASA, the International Space Station, and outer space.  I still seek the holy grail of amateur radio contacts... a confirmed QSO with NA1SS.  To date, the best I've gotten was a response on Twitter from COL Doug Wheelock.

CIA, FBI, NSA, DHS... those are just a few of the alphabet intelligence agencies we hear about reporting to the President of the United States.  But who works for us?  What happens when they get it wrong?

GoFundMe.Com... the #1 online panhandling platform.  I've seen many noble uses to streamline giving money, and I've seen some self-serving or questionable deployments that leave me wondering if there's an element of fraud involved.  My GoFundMe is guaranteed 100% to be self-serving with no fraud!

As we are just a little over a month away from Donald Trump's inauguration, First Lady Michelle Obama stirred quite the proverbial pot when, during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, stated, "See... now, we're feeling what 'not having hope' feels like."  

The political right exploded in outrage!  

It took almost no time for right wing political commentators to dig up her infamous quote from 2008 after Barack Obama became the DNC nominee:  "For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country..."  

Metaphorically speaking, she strapped on a suicide bomber vest and handed the political right the detonator.

It's not uncommon to hear a station connect to the Atlanta Rabbits Amateur Radio Club Repeater (http://www.KA5AHS.org) via Echolink only to turn around and disconnect.  Such was not the case about 30 minutes ago.  I heard the announcement of a station connecting, and a call followed shortly after.

Military action?  Trade wars?  Diplomatic resolution?  These were topics briefly discussed between me and a friend of mine in private message on social media.  Several hours after the conclusion of that conversation, an editorial video pops up titled, "Trump and China: What's at stake?" on CNN.com.  CNN Correspondent Matt Rivers addresses all the points highlighted in my private discussion.  It was almost as if he were commenting on our discussion.

In doing some background research for this piece, I suffered from disappointment at the gleeful opportunity to appear smarter than Albert Einstein in an erroneous quote that has been credited to him:  "Racism is a disease of white people."  The focus on this piece is to discredit that very quote.  Unfortunately for my ego, that's not what Einstein said.

I'm white.  I have used racial slurs.  I have laughed at racist jokes.  I am not a racist.

I'm not in denial.  I recognize racism exists in today's society, but the only group of people I believe myself to be better than are the small-minded individuals who have no qualms with branding me a racist solely on the first three statements of fact I have made in this article.

Taiwan is a country, and it's led by President Tsai Ing-wen.  There.  I said it.  Furthermore, I support it.  To hell with China.

After the terrorists attacks on September 11,2001, a vast demand for tactical training swept the nation for those in the military, law enforcement, and even adept civilian marksmen.  Personally, I took a lot of that training.  Early instructors generally believed they didn't teach a way, but rather the way.  When competition began growing fierce, many instructors, who regularly cross-trained with other instructors, started putting their egos aside and realized all they had to offer to their students was another proverbial "tool in the toolbox."  In one class, the instructor popped off with a cliche that I have reflected on ever since...
