Why Can't Chuck Get His Business Off the Ground?

Three guesses and the first two don't count.

Meet The Israeli Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle

"The bi-annual Robotics Conference is taking place in Herzliya, and Israel National News TV was there to meet the developers of the AvantGuard Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle (UGCV). It is a jeep-like robot that takes the place of human soldiers in testing out dangerous territory.

The AvantGuard, which has been already trialed and certified by the Israeli army, features superb maneuverability while operating in harsh terrain environments."

VERY SCARY: Mortgage Fraud Deposition

"The Great Depression was caused by Federal Reserve expansion of the money supply in the 1920s that led to an unsustainable credit-driven boom. When the Federal Reserve belatedly tightened in 1928, it was too late to avoid financial collapse. According to Murray Rothbard, in his book America's Great Depression, the artificial interference in the economy was a disaster prior to the depression, and government efforts to prop up the economy after the crash of 1929 only made things worse. Government intervention delayed the market's adjustment and made the road to complete recovery more difficult. The parallels with today are uncanny."

One Napoleon Against 100 Guns

A fine example of a brave and audacious American military veteran was John Pelham, a 24 year-old Major of artillery who with two cannon kept Northern General William Franklin’s 16,000 invading infantry hugging the ground near Fredericksburg.

Glorious Courage in One So Young

“Stonewall” then calmly reached into his dispatch case and…wrote the following note to “Jeb” Stuart: “General, order Major Pelham to open fire against the advancing enemy.” “Jeb” passed the order to Pelham, who asked excitedly, “General, I would like to have permission to take two guns half a mile along a hidden path to a gully perpendicular to the Richmond Stage Road. Here I can pour an enfilading fire on the flank of [General William B.] Franklin’s troops and knock them down like ninepins.”

Sending two guns to stop three regular Federal divisions unquestionably seemed foolhardy. The enemy most surely would quickly overpower this tiny island of resistance and kill or capture Pelham and his gunners. General Stuart placed such confidence in his young artillerist’s judgment that he replied, “Go ahead Major, but be careful to withdraw in plenty of time.”

Grinning confidently, Pelham saluted and rode off with a Blakely gun and twelve-pounder Napoleon…[and] managed to get into position without being detected. Without delay the Creoles [crew] loaded the cannon with solid shot and aimed them so as to enfilade the Yankee front line only 500 yards away. Startled by this flank fire, the enemy halted, and many infantrymen hugged the ground to escape the next salvo. While Pelham continued to rake General Franklin’s divisions with a devastating fire that toppled the blue ranks like rows of falling dominoes, the Federal commanders ordered their batteries to wheel around and silence Pelham whom they believed must have unleashed at least an entire battery on their flank. Ere long, sixteen Yankee guns were raining shot and shell on Pelham’s two guns.

For a full hour Pelham exchanged a raging fire with the enemy [and] Pelham, flushed with excitement at the sight of his two guns stalling the advance of Franklin’s Left Grand Division, resolutely directed the operation of his guns. But the enemy retaliated with a deadly vengeance by exploding a shell squarely on the Blakely…while the other crew redoubled the Napoleon’s fire. General Franklin…reinforced the fire of four of his own batteries on Pelham with the firepower of long-range guns on Stafford Heights.

Not only did Pelham maintain his position, but his rapid, shifting fire completely halted the enemy’s advance. All along the Confederate right admiring eyes watched unbelievingly as Pelham with his single Napoleon dueled with a hundred guns and checked the advance of 16,000 blue-coated infantry. General Lee, observing the spectacle through his field-glasses, turned to an aide and exclaimed, “It is glorious to see such courage in one so young.”

Ghosts On Parade

"History by apprising [citizens] of the past will enable them to judge of the future; it will avail them of the experience of other times and other nations; it will qualify them as judges of the actions and designs of men; it will enable them to know ambition under every disguise it may assume; and knowing it, to defeat its views."
--Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query 14, 1781
When the adjutant calls for the report, instead of the usual, "A Company, all present or accounted for, Sir," the names of the 10 cadets killed at New Market are called.
"Corporal Atwill," goes the call.

"Corporal Atwill died on the field of honor, Sir," comes the reply.

"Private Haynes."

"Private Haynes died on the field of honor, Sir."

And so on, until all 10 names have been called. And remembered in the truest sense.

It seems to take a very long time, and in the hush that has fallen over the parade ground, you can hear that some of the visitors have not been able to bear it. They are crying. There is more crying still, when the bugler blows taps.

"Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is Religion and Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which Freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure, than they have it now, they may change their Rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty."
