Updates to this page: This page will get updated as I find the time and motivation. If you've got a favorite post you'd like to see included here, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
A note about searching the site: If you're looking for a specific post, something you've read in the past but only remember a few key words from or maybe just the subject, you can perform a basic search using the Blogger search function in the upper left-hand corner of the main page. However, blogger search results are somewhat hit and miss. A better option is to use Google. Because this is a Google indexed blog running on a Google server, you'll get much better results if you do your search from Google. Preface your search with "Stonekettle Station" followed by whatever key words or subjects you're looking for. If I'm searching my own site, especially for older posts, that's what I do.
The America posts: Part 1 went viral and has been read now by nearly two million people. It was linked to over 10,000 times from Facebook, and nearly that many times from Twitter. A small fraction of readers hated it and called me everything from a communist bastard to a Bradley Manning look alike (Yeah, I don't get that one either, given my position on Pvt Manning), but all in all the post seemed to have struck a chord with a very large number of people and inspired conversations across the web.

Into the Valley of Death: Some thoughts regarding the tragic loss of US Navy SEALs in Afghanistan and why armchair generals and Sunday morning quarterbacks piss me right the hell off.
The Liberalism Post: For some reason the posts inspired by bumper stickers seem to resonate with readers. The following article also went viral and I still continue to get email from people about it, both those that agree and those that think I'm a traitor to America. Sigh. Liberalism, Conservatism, and Insanity
The Patriotism Post: I wrote this the day some old Tea Party hag called me unAmerican, she's damned lucky I didn't knock her teeth down her throat. Patriots.

Ronald Reagan: I understand why people revere this guy, I do. But they're wrong. He was a reasonably decent president, but his face sure as hell doesn't belong on Mt Rushmore: The Deification of Ronald Reagan
Bradley Manning and Wikileaks, a number of folks have made some very, very wrong assumptions about where I stand on the subject of Wikileaks and Army Specialist Manning. Here's what I actually think:

Pearl Harbor: Remembering December 7th. Of all the things I've written, this is my favorite. This is the story I used to tell to new Navy Chiefs, so they would know who they were.
