Read the story here:

Albany, NY, Times Union

and here are my comments on it for your further perusal and edification:

If this is true, and I have little reason to doubt it, the police department, from the top down, needs to be fired, prosecuted and jailed for 99 years to life. There can be NO excuse for such behavior, yet such things are becoming altogether TOO COMMONPLACE. It’s as if our new masters are letting us know what’s in store for us when their consolidation of power over us is complete. Such things seem to happen DAILY and NOTHING happens to the perps.

But there seems to be a growing contingent of citizens who are altogether too willing to trade MY freedom for THEIR illusion of security. It is chilling to think that this sort of moron, whom I gave well over twenty two years of my life to defend, God help me, wants to spit in my face and tear up the Constitution for the United States so that they can feel like they have some sort of security… God help this nation because we are in dire straits if we get too many morons and the requisite gummint agents all too willing to assume a power and authority NOT THEIRS to take, in response to the weak-kneed morons (who probably don’t have two brain cells to rub together BETWEEN THEM.

And now, in a new development, I will be hosting a talk show on BlogTalkRadio.com. There is a link to the right of this Blog for you to get my show. Please stay tuned for dates and times for the live show and TUNE IN. It will be in the evenings and I promise to do my utmost to make it entertaining, enlightening and useful to you. In a way, this is the start of fulfilling a longstanding dream, to be able to talk, for as long as I can, on topics that interest me... and, from personal observation, a fair number of other folks as well.

My pirate name is:


Iron Tom Flint



A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

Oh, by the way, my son and daughter-in-law gave birth to their first child and my second granddaughter on January 18th, 2008. She is adorable and I can't wait to get back to Virginia to see her!
