My first deployment was to the Mediterranean (1975). Once there, we were ordered to sit off the coast of Lebanon, to assist in the evacuation of civilians (we were the NATO Flagship).

In 1979, as I walked down the pier for the last time, my ship was "spinning screws", getting underway for Iran.

They have us over the barrel, so to speak, the oil barrel...

Alternative fuels might be the way to fight them...did you see the lines at the gas pumps in Iraq? What's with that...

Republican candidate John McCain (probably misspelled, what did you expect from a Democrat?) spoke recently.

Keeping it short...Global warming is a threat and so is our Nation's dependence on oil.

He is the GOP front runner...because he strikes a chord with guys like me...
