Celebrating National Engineers Week

February 27, 2013

I can’t believe I let this important week slip by without a nod to those unsung heroes of … just about everything.  To honor the Engineers, I am re-posting a poem from 2011.

Engineering.  The world’s second oldest profession.  And far less revered than the first.

 
Engineer, from where you come?
What thing you do like no other one
 
To do the feats we think to dare
To make this that with enough to spare
 
Your father Science and your mother Art
Things now together, but for you, remain apart
 
For the Engineer, no great monument, public love, or applause
For to bring about with economy, for utility, is his only cause
 
Oh noble Engineer, dare I say, if not your fruit unfold
I’d be naked in a field alone; hungry, wet and cold
 
“Doctor, this man here he engineers,” ’tis truth
Nay, “Professor, it is Engineer Hugo I introduce.”

A Cold Inauguration Day

January 21, 2013

It was so cold today in Washington I heard that Obama had his hands in his own pockets.

Today President Obama was sworn in for his second term. He was officially sworn in yesterday in a private ceremony. I swore the President off on November 7th and have been cursing him out ever since.

It’s been over two months since the night that the curiously ignorant became the dangerously ignorant. My conclusion regarding the election is that the case for American values was not effectively made to enough people.

Grateful on Veterans Day

November 11, 2012

One person cries, “We need a better government.”  Another yells, “We need better citizens.”  Good citizens understand duty.  No group of citizens are revered for their duty to the nation more than our veterans.  That is a good thing. Over 48 million Americans have served in the military since 1776.  So many have given so much so that we may live in liberty.  But that is not the whole story.  So many of the men and women of our Armed Services have served so that others – not Americans – would not live in tyranny.

America has been, and remains, the aberration among nations.  Honor a military veteran today.  Be grateful they are ours.

Hugo’s 2012 Voters Guide

October 21, 2012

Sometimes we are faced with tough decisions. This election is not one of them. Some think it’s tough, until they know what the choices are.

This is a ”forest” election. The trees, however, do make up the forest:
