THE 2018 ELECTION HEIST, A CALL TO ARMS

September 19, 2018 Puma ByDesign 0

Vassar Bushmills Why would the Left be puffing up numbers of a Blue Wave when the numbers don’t justify that…unless they have an alternate plan as to how to make those numbers seem real? The numbers don’t add up. It makes no sense for anyone with a family, unless wealthy, [Read More]

GAIJIN (ガイジン)

September 12, 2018 Puma ByDesign 0

Vassar Bushmills Gaijin, pronounced “guy-jin” is a Japanese word meaning “foreigner”. But it is much more than that. I lived in Japan 1972-1975 as an Army officer. And I had studied Japanese for four semesters in college to satisfy my language requirements. A solid C-student, I came away with the [Read More]

ROBERT MUELLER, A THEORY OF THE MAN

August 27, 2018 Puma ByDesign 0

Vassar Bushmills There have always been two theories about Robert Mueller, actually three, which I laid out in a piece a little over a year ago. I still hold that how he sees himself in History may be outcome determinative. (I listed “History” at #8 in that list. ) Using the laws [Read More]

THE CIB, THE LIGHT THAT COMMANDS THE ROOM

August 22, 2018 Puma ByDesign 0

Vassar Bushmills As you already know, I’m the garritrooper in this outfit, “too far forward to wear a tie, and too far to the rear to get shot at.” But that doesn’t mean that I don’t know some things about wading in muck up to my elbows, sleeping on hard [Read More]

“ADULTERY”

August 2, 2018 Puma ByDesign 0

Vassar Bushmills Anyone under 40 will not remember, and certainly find no modern relevance in Radar O’Reilly, played by Gary Burghoff in the M.A.S.H. TV series, 1972-1983. He was a 20-something corporal in an Army surgical hospital unit in the Korean War. It was a comedy. Everyone else in the [Read More]

TRADE BRINKSMANSHIP, NOT TRADE WAR, VERSUS GLOBALISM

July 30, 2018 Puma ByDesign 0

Vassar Bushmills “Trade War” is a term the enemies of Donald Trump use to denigrate his proposals for restoring a balance to American trade policies. Only it’s not “trade war” but trade brinkmanship, which, as it was first used to define JFK’s strategy against the USSR in his years in the White House, were intended [Read More]

21 AND STUPID

July 3, 2018 Puma ByDesign 0

Vassar Bushmills Every college kid remembers when he turned 21 because it was the day he could use his own drivers’ license to get into the Boom-Boom Room. That was in the first semester of my sophomore year, 1966. There were a lot of laws, even ancient ones, that were in [Read More]

NORTH KOREA AND COMMUNIST IDEOLOGY

June 13, 2018 Puma ByDesign 0

Vassar Bushmills Ideologically, North Korea stopped being communist 30-40 years ago. Like Starbucks, they found one good gimmick, in this case, raw power, then hung themselves by their own petard trying to grow it. Certain laws apply about going from true-believing Marxist ideologues in 1945 to power and privilege-seeking pipsqueaks 60 [Read More]

NO GREATER LOVE; DENYING THE DEVIL HIS DUE

May 21, 2018 Puma ByDesign 0

Vassar Bushmills (A Memorial Day theme, cross-posted at VeteransTales.org, this is also one of the major themes of that entire site. Come show us some love.) In the mid 90s, before I began traveling to the Soviet Bloc regularly, and finding out what their outhouses looked like, I taught a [Read More]
