The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

The Lone Eagle Goes Isolationist

For John, BLUFNot all our heroes were right all the time.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

This article by Mr Michael E. Ruane, with a dateline of 21 January, reminds us that on this date (23 January) "75 years ago, Charles Lindbergh urged Congress to stay out of WWII".
It was Jan. 23, 1941 — 75 years ago Saturday — and the American mega-celebrity was about to tell Congress that the country’s entry into the war raging in Europe would have little effect on the outcome, and would be a disaster for the country.
I think that Colonel Lindbergh was saying what he thought was our best foreign policy.  I also think that he was wrong.  And, notwithstanding President Franklin D Roosevelt forbidding him from going on active duty, he did support our war effort, including going to the Southwest Pacific, helping pilots learn how to get more out of their P-38s.
