A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Wisdom from the original Battlestar Galactica: Those of you who aren't science-fiction fans bear with me. As I was watching the 3-hour pilot episode of the old '70s space opera "Battlestar Galactica," a speech made by Admiral Adama, played by the late Lorne Greene, struck me as being particularly relevant today as we face this threat from radical Islamists.

After announcing an armistice with the Cylons, the President approaches a skeptical Adama.


Forgive me, Mr. President, but they hate us with every fiber of their existence. We love freedom. We love independence. To feel, to question, to resist oppression. To them, it's an alien way of existing they will never accept.


Islamic terrorists are much the same as the robotic Cylons were portrayed. There can be no peace with them that maintains our freedoms.

The new Battlestar Galactica mini-series: Still haven't watched it yet. It's on tape and I hope to sit down and check it out later this week.
