In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. He said he’d go there, and he will. The MSM will find fault with this, maybe his wife isn’t wearing combat boots to tramp over debris or he will say a word or make a comment that doesn’t fit.
    It’s getting to be hard and harder to be forgiving or ridicule the anti-Americans/Trump/conservatives.
    OJ is out of prison, a wacko kills and terrorizes concert goers, music lost a legend, sports have turned into a fight about who’s got the right to be wrong, and we need a break.

    1. Yes, we need a break. I was just thinking last night–I’m going to turn off the news for a few days. (I won’t but that was the thought). It’s not the news so much as it is people screaming on TV “I’m right! You’re wrong” and the smirking and political bias and insults and spin and conflicting stories and name calling, etc. TV News reporting in the US has been show business for a long time now, and people are sick of it. I watch news reporting on my Roku from France, the UK (not GREAT news reporting, but better than the US), even Russia (which is propaganda-driven like the US corporate media). France24 (English version) does the best job of all, IMHO. They report the news, as best they can, provide good context, report in some depth from all the hot spots in the world. They’re not perfect, but they are calm, fairly neutral and overall do a good job. US TV news coverage is a catastrophe.

      1. I get live streams from You Tube. I watch Sky from the UK, France 24 from Paris and ABC from Australia. DW from Berlin was very good but I have been unable to find a live stream from them. The great thing about theses is they do not have one commercial after another. You Tube has commercials which you can click off.

      2. Marcus, I agree with you that we should follow these world wide news outlets. For example, yesterday Sky reported British Monarch Airlines declared bankruptcy. This isn’t good news for Seattle. Monarch had on order 45 Boeing 737-MAX 8s.

  2. Man oh man, I can only imagine the field day they must have held on the Kearsarge.

    Still, they’ll have one heck of a sea story: it’s not every day when eight bells are struck and the word they pass is “United States, arriving.”

    1. Come to think of it…when WAS the last time a sitting US president made an official visit on something other than an aircraft carrier?

      It’s a red-letter day for the gator Navy, that’s for sure.

        1. I was a Deck Seaman, and then YN3 on an LSD (Landing Ship Dock) with 2 Mediterranean Deployments with the”gator Navy” It is the amphibious part of the surface fleet; LHA/LHDs (mini aircraft carriers), LSDs, LPDs, landing craft (LCACs etc.)
          The”gator Navy” carries the US Marines to where they gotta go -LOL

        2. “Gator Navy” is the amphibious fleet–the taxicab service for Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children.

          When a dignitary comes aboard, the ship’s bell is struck a certain number of times, depending on their rank, and announced to all hands based on their command.

          The short version:
          8 bells is a head of state, 6 bells is a flag officer, 4 bells is a Captain or Commander.

          2 bells are for junior officers, enlistees, civilians, and inanimate objects, but are only struck on those rare occasions when their arrival or departure is especially noteworthy.

          As for the announcement, it’s based on command, if the dignitary has one.
