No Boundaries (Short Story) - 6/17/2008 8:40:45 AM
You have written this piece so beautifully. I feel as though I am there, in the camp, on that cold day. Your descriptive writing has captured my heart, and the ending really warmed my heart. "Know that love has no boundaries.". A beautiful ending to your magnificent writing! I plan to read more of your works.
Stop into my authors den when you have a moment.
China: Taking Small Steps Leading to Global Control (Article) - 1/26/2009 12:48:15 PM
As always, Mr Davis, your articles are informative, interesting, and provocative. Other dynamics which should be explored are unfair balances of trade (which has caused the loss of tens of thousands of American jobs)and the widespread problem of corrupt companies ... sending inferior, counterfeit, and dangerous products into our economy.
My personal philosophy is to not buy anything "Made in China". Why support any regime whose ultimate goal is to destroy democracy.

Well Done. We have been at war with China since 1949. It's amazing how many people haven't noticed. The bad news is that by the time China finally wins they won't want anything to do with what's left of what use to be America.
Piracy and the Rules of Engagement (Article) - 12/4/2008 9:13:11 PM
The ships need to routinely carry armed soldiers when they are in this part of the world. Arm them well with rocket launchers and such. When these pirates show up, blast them to hell. They have no business doing what they are doing and deserve to die.

Amazing that these things still happen and that all our technology can't compensate for human negligence. I think that AIS should be absolutely mandatory carriage for even the smallest boats in such waterways, along with a competent navigator who knows how to set the anti-collision warnings/alarms.
I spent some 10 years at sea up to 1988 and witnessed a continuous decline in international standards of seamanship (in engineering, deck and other departments) driven by owner's needs for cheap crewing. I don't supposed it's changed much. By the end of my career (I was a radio-electronics officer), more than half the accommodation on larger vessels was unoccupied due to crew reductions. The major part of shipping long since fell into the hands of third world cost cutters.
First Responder Survey shows Inadequacies in Training and Readiness (Article) - 5/30/2008 8:13:11 PM
there are two major problems with border security. the second is political correctness. the first it is a socialist system with all its deficiencies: the manageril stuff from Washington to a first line supervisor is counterproductive (to put it very-very mildly). in the Soviet Russia at the border they used a capitalism system.
we are entitled to have more 9/11s.
