It’s Not So Pretty in Emerald City

Written by Jack Doxey Vice President, Veterans for Peace, San Diego Chapter Published with permission by Patrick Gokey Every time I pick up friends or relatives at the San Diego Airport I enjoy watching their reactions as they see, for the first time, the San Diego skyline. They are particularly impressed with the breathtaking views at night. The bright lights ... Read More »

Law Enforcement Oath of Honor

I think it is time that the police are reminded of the Oath of Honor they took upon becoming a police officer. According to the International Organization of Chiefs of Police: Police officers take risks and suffer inconveniences to protect the lives, defend civil liberties, secure the safety of fellow citizens, and they endure such risks and tolerate such inconveniences ...

Occupy Wall Street Evicted

I have to give it to all the conservatives who yelled and screamed about privacy issues when the Patriot Act was passed. Ben Franklin said: “Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security.” Privacy is gone. We will never get it back.

Oh Shi*

It’s no secret that life in the Navy is vastly different from the Army or Marines, and the same can be said for the Coast Guard and Air Force. But one thing that most of us that served can unanimously complain about its the lack of adequate toilet facilities. I mean come on, there are over 6,000 people on a ship and ... Read More »

OWS Has Been Denied

The courts have ruled against Occupy Wall St. Occupiers are allowed to stay in the park 24 hours a day but they cannot have tents. They can, however, have sleeping bags. And at least for tonight, they can sleep there. After all the miss steps that the NYPD have taken I can’t believe the courts would rule in the city’s ... Read More »
