Soldier of Fortune's 35th anniversary

By Paul Danish
At the time I was a freshman reporter for the Colorado Daily. Brown, a CU alum who at age 29 was 11 years my senior, was back on campus to talk about the invasion (it didn't collapse for another day or two) and drum up support for the rebels. Then, as now, he gave a terrific interview.

Reducing the budget

By Paul Danish
1) Repeal Obamacare. That will save, depending on the estimate, $1 trillion to $3 trillion over the next 10 years, or $100 billion to $300 billion a year. (Actual savings would be somewhat less, because some aspects of Obamacare, like the ban on refusing coverage for a prior condition, would survive any serious attempt at repeal.

Biggest environmental disaster in U.S. history? Hogwash!

By Paul Danish
The Macondo blowout may be many things, but one thing it is not is the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history — not even close. Dozens — hundreds — of environmental disasters have done both far more and far longer lasting damage to the country’s environment than the Macondo blowout or any other oil spill.

Think globally, mine locally

By Paul Danish
First some background. According to a story in last Sunday’s Camera, a new U.S. law requires companies to certify whether their products contain blood metals. Blood metals are just like blood diamonds but without the carbon. They’re metals that come from mines controlled by rebels in the Congo.

How to stop illegal immigration

By Paul Danish
Get together a big army, pour over the border, crush all resistance, occupy the country from the Rio Grande to the Rio Usumacinta, and annex it to the United States. Make English the official language and teach it to everyone. Award NFL franchises to Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterey.

Orwell got it backwards

By Paul Danish
This became obvious when Israeli commandos attempted to board the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara last month. Along with several hundred peace pilgrims and 1,100 tons of styptic pencils and Band-Aids bound for Gaza, it also carried 50 or 60 Turkish Islamist toughs, each of whom had been paid $10,000 cash to seek peace.

What would Sarah do?

By Paul Danish
You betcha. Sarah knows a lot about the oil business and about BP in particular. As governor of Alaska, she spent seven months negotiating with BP over a proposed natural gas pipeline to the lower 48. Chances are BP CEO Tony Hayward’s phone number is in her computer.
