Merry Christmas...

...and remember: Si vis pacem, para bellum.

The Final Voyage...

In case you haven't heard, the USS Enterprise has just finished her final voyage and is scheduled to be inactivated on December 1st. This is the 8th ship in the US Navy to bear the name Enterprise. There is a wonderful history of all 8 at the official Enterprise site. Enterprise VII still stands as the most decorated ship in Naval history. It's sad to me think there will be no Enterprise roaming the seas watching over us. There was a movement to name CVN -79 Enterprise, but that one was named after John Kennedy and is scheduled to be completed within the next 8 years or so.

But, there is always hope:

This is an online petition to name CVN-80 USS Enterprise. If you are interested I encourage you to go sign one of these so that hopefully this name can live on.

Only one try...

My Beautiful Wife is correct. The quote in the previous post is from non other than the icon liberals hold high and dear:
John F. Kennedy

"A rising tide lifts all boats...

...It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low -- and the soundest way to raise revenues in the long run is to cut rates now. The experience of a number of European countries has borne this out. This country's own experience with tax reductions...has borne this out, and the reason is that only full employment can balance the budget -- and tax reduction can pave the way to full employment. The purpose of cutting taxes now is not to incur a budgetary deficit but to achieve the more prosperous expanding economy which will bring a budgetary surplus."

Who said it?
