So with everything that is going on in the world and here in America, I think it is time that I start writing on here in Notes from Outpost 187. This is a blog about politics, foreign policy and social issue blog, and there is much to write about. For those who know me know I have opinions and thoughts on a wide range of topics. I try my best to be thoughtful and take a Socratic approach to things. I also have a great interest in our world, and I want to share them with you all. I am merely trying to add to the discussion and contribute to our democracy.
I also would love to hear your opinions and thoughts. Please try to thoughtful and polite, but if you can’t be, I forgive you.
The kid was murdered by the police for taking his hat off.
Does this make you feel safer? Is this the kind of country you want to live in? Why do we give so much power to the police when they cannot administer it competently.

So I saw on the Facebook a post from a guy that I had served with a MEME that said Official ISIS Hunting License, and thought to myself “ok, go then.” He served with me in the 82nd Airborne Division and has a Ranger Tab. I have many friends who I served with that are constantly posting anti-ISIS post, and my attitude is simple: Put up or shut up. Get your ass over there, link up the Kurds and fight. And I am being serious when I say that.
Seriously, these guys are really good fighters. Some with 2 combat tours under their belt, including a combat jump. The Kurds would benefit greatly with the caliber of fighters these guys are The Kurds need the help, knowledge and leadership that these guys posses.
And this goes to all ex-paratroopers, rangers, and special operators. Get in shape go over and fight ISIS. You are the best trained soldiers in the world and the Kurds need your help. And I say the Kurds because they are pro United States and they have their shit together.
And as far as I go, I am cripple, I broke my back on a jump in 94, yet I stated to get back into combat shape. If I feel I can do the do, I will go as well.
