THOUGHTS OF THE DAY — THURSDAY 7/10

BATTLE HISTORY OF THE DAY:

RUBY RIDGE, AUGUST 1992

The controversial standoff spawned a nationwide debate on the use of force by federal law enforcement agencies, and a U.S. Senate panel accused the federal agencies involved of “substantial failures” in their handling of the Ruby Ridge operation. Of particular controversy was an FBI “rule of engagement” implemented at the beginning of the Ruby Ridge siege that stated “any armed adult male observed in the vicinity of the Weaver cabin could and should be killed.” Many condemned this policy as unconstitutional. Rumors that the FBI had engaged in a cover-up regarding the Ruby Ridge operation were verified when E. Michael Kahoe, former chief of the FBI’s violent crimes section, pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in 1996. Kahoe, who had destroyed an official bureau critique of the standoff, was sentenced to 18 months in prison.

DAYS UNTIL NEXT POTUS ELECTION:

851 DAYS, 18 HOURS, 39 MINUTES, 56 SECONDS

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Gentlemen, when the enemy is committed to a mistake we must not interrupt him too soon.”

-Lord Horatio Nelson

This is pretty much the position all of our enemies are taking with POTUS.  He seems Hell bent on continuing to make mistakes.

RULE OF THE DAY:

MODERN COMMUNICATION

With al of the “Communication” equipment out there: cell phones, IPads, computers, etc., I don’t believe people are communicating any more than they did 20 years ago.  The key is that if they are communicating, they are not communicating wisely.  Leaving a message that says, “what uh?” is not a message, “I am stuck on the side of the road at mile marker 272, southbound lane, can you help?” is message.  Email “base line tennis” is not productive.  Hitting the ball back and forth two dozen times, or sending two dozen emails without getting down to ‘brass tacks’ is a waste.  Solve the problems from start to finish and the world will be a better place.  “I want lunch at Johnny’s at 13:00 hrs., I will make the reservation, see you there.  We need to discuss vacation plans.”  Now you know where to go, what time, and what the main discussion will be so you can think about how to deal with it before you get there.
