Let's offer them the bullets to kill us, while we're at it...

It's time we consider giving some of our territory back over to the countries it used to belong to. Let's give England about a quarter of Washington, DC. New Orleans, let's see, we need to cede the French Quarter back to France. Seattle can go to Canada, Southern California we can give back to Mexico. Oh, and Anchorage, that definitely has to go back to Russia.

Think I've lost my mind and that I'm completely off my rocker? Think that I've worked too much this week and that I've been overcome by fatigue (ok, that one may be true, but still...). The United States wouldn't DREAM of turning any of these areas over to anyone else. These areas that I've mentioned are part of our nation, a part of US, part of our country, part of the whole of our people.


Why would our state department even DREAM of having any PART of Jerusalem on the bargaining table for the Middle East peace conferences? Jerusalem is the traditional capital of Israel from time historic. It has no significance to Islam in any way, shape, manner, form or fashion other than to be a thorn in the side of the Jews. Yes, the Mosque of Omar is found in Jerusalem. Muslims argue until they're blue in the face about it being one of their religious places, but what's it built on? Anybody? Anybody? Bueller? Bueller? THAT'S RIGHT, by golly, it's built on the location of the site that was the Temple of Solomon. Giving Palestinians access to Jerusalem and allowing them to make it "theirs" makes about as much sense to me as would living south of Lamar Avenue in Memphis and not locking your doors at night. Or during the day for that matter.

Hamas demands UN rescind '47 partition

Hamas on Thursday called on the UN to rescind the 1947 decision to partition Palestine into two states, one for Jews and one for Arabs.

The group said in a statement, released on the 60th anniversary of the UN vote, that "Palestine is Arab Islamic land, from the river to the sea, including Jerusalem... there is no room in it for the Jews."

Regarding the partition decision, Hamas said that "correcting mistakes is nothing to be ashamed of, but prolonging it is exploitation..."

And Syria, good old Syria, they want the Golan Heights. There's a very simple reason they want this piece of real estate, folks. It's very easy, VERY easy to set up small artillery and absolutely bombard pretty much any location in Israel that they want to target.

Saudi Arabia, those wonderful allies of ours? Their delegation refused to even shake hands with the Israeli delegation.

Anyone see a trend to all of this? Other than me? Yes, thank God, others see it as well, and are speaking out about it. Click this link to go to the American Center for Law and Justice petition demanding that our government do it's part to keep Jerusalem Israeli.


Israel is our ally, and they are struggling to maintain their national sovereignty. It's up to you, the American people, to speak loudly and demand our government help our ally to survive.

News Blurbs 26NOV07

It's been a busy and interesting days for news. From a slipping Clinton campaign to another Communist nation on the brink of going down the drain, the first Monday after Thanksgiving has been a hot one.

Let's take a look through the headlines and see what's been going on today.

Trent Lott announces his resignation
Minority whip says he will leave Senate before end of the year

NBC News and news services
updated 11:12 a.m. CT, Mon., Nov. 26, 2007

Pascagoula, Mississippi - Mississippi Sen. Trent Lott, the Senate's No. 2 Republican, announced Monday he will retire from the Senate by end of year.

"It's time for us to do something else," Lott said, speaking for himself and his wife Tricia at a news conference.

Lott, 66, said he had notified President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour on Sunday about his plans. Barbour, a Republican, will name someone to temporarily replace Lott.

"There are no problems. I feel fine," Lott said.

Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl, who helped broker a bipartisan immigration bill that went down to defeat this year despite President Bush's support for it, will run to replace Lott as the Republicans' vote-counting whip, said spokesman Ryan Patmintra.

Lott described his 16 years in the House and 19 in the Senate "a wild ride - and one that I'm proud of."

He said he was leaving with "no anger, no malice."

Lott isn't the only Republican to announce his retirement. Dennis Hastert has announced his resignation, as well.

Hastert Resigns Today [David Freddoso]

I am told that former Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) is faxing his resignation letter to Gov. Rod Blagojevich this afternoon.

Once the resignation is official, the governor has five days to set the special election within 120 days of the resignation. Because filing deadlines and the like prevent it from being much earlier, the primary will probably be held Feb. 5, the same date as the presidential primary.

It looks as if there is going to be more than the Presidential primaries to keep a close eye on in the coming weeks. The Presidential polls are in and of themselves becoming a hotter situation, as the latest polls today show Hillary Clinton slipping behind the Republican frontrunners.

New poll shows Clinton trails top 2008 Republicans
Mon Nov 26, 2007 1:46pm EST

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton trails five top Republican presidential contenders in general election match-ups, a drop in support from this summer, according to a poll released on Monday.

Clinton's top Democratic rivals, Barack Obama and John Edwards, still lead Republicans in hypothetical match-ups ahead of the November 4, 2008, presidential election, the survey by Zogby Interactive showed.

Clinton, a New York senator who has been at the top of the Democratic pack in national polls in the 2008 race, trails Republican candidates Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, John McCain and Mike Huckabee by three to five percentage points in the direct matches.

In July, Clinton narrowly led McCain, an Arizona senator, and held a five-point lead over former New York Mayor Giuliani, a six-point lead over former Tennessee Sen. Thompson and a 10-point lead over former Massachusetts Gov. Romney.

She was not matched against the fast-rising Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor, in the July poll.

The results come as other national polls show the race for the Democratic nomination tightening five weeks before the first contest in Iowa, which kicks off the state-by-state nomination battles in each party.

Some Democrats have expressed concerns about the former first lady's electability in a race against Republicans. The survey showed Clinton not performing as well as Obama and Edwards among independents and younger voters, pollster John Zogby said.

"The questions about her electability have always been there, but as we get close this suggests that is a problem," Zogby said.

Not good news for the Clinton camp. I would imagine that the next item wouldn't be good news to them either, if they were asked.

DPRK On The Verge Of Collapse?

Intelligence sources and other observers both here in the capital of the PRC and elsewhere in Asia are stating that they project a possible collapse of the North Korean regime within six months time.

Although there have been similar dire predictions made in the past, those analyzing the current situation point to several factors that indicate that the regime may finally be unraveling.

Recent activity by both Kim Jong-Il and other DPRK officials suggest that the Dear Leader is in the process of moving around the financial resources of Pyongyang’s international banking empire in order to make sure he is taken care of should he have to go into exile. This includes a recent visit to the United States by North Korean finance officials who were visiting to learn about the international financial circulation network.

Ostensibly, this visit was preparatory work that would allow the country to re-join the international financial system. This is the next, anticipated step for Pyongyang once the regime has negotiated its removal from the US list of state sponsors of terrorism. The DPRK are also seeking an end to their being subject to the U.S. Trading with the Enemy Act first imposed during the Korean War by President Harry Truman.

But, there are others who suggest that this is also part of a contingency plan in order to make Kim’s assets “portable.”

And finally, for a bit of lighter news, and because, well, I'm a guy and I find such things to be interesting (from a purely intellectual position, I assure you. Ahem), we have this bit of news from Taiwan:

Firms asks women to work in their undies

A Taiwanese lingerie company encouraged all its female office staff to go to work in their undies for the day.

The Audrey Underwear company in Taizhong city named November 21 Camisole Day to celebrate record sales.

All 500 women working in the firm's headquarters were encouraged to wear only camisoles and knickers - much to the excitement of their male colleagues.

"We have been waiting for this day all month. Today, we are super high, and don't know where to put our eyes," salesman Cai Mingda told Straits News.

More than 90% of female workers reportedly went along with the spirit of the day and worked in their underwear.

Zhang Yufeng, 32, a mother of two, admitted: "I have been on a strict diet to get ready for the day. When I was trying on my outfit at home, my husband told me I should dress like this every day."

And Liao Wenshen, 30, added: "The men were red-faced all day, and were becoming so polite to us. It's so funny!"

Huang Bihui, PR manager of the company, explained: "We introduced eight new camisoles into market and sold more than 20,000 in less than two months so we named the 21st as Camisole Day."

I wonder if Victoria's Secret is paying attention to this concept? Would "Thong Day" be going overboard?

Just a thought...

Truth Revealed...

I have another family dinner to head off to here in a few minutes.

Before I go, I wanted to leave you with something so disturbing, and so profound, it will change your lives forever. It was sent to me some years ago and I can assure you I've never looked at the world the in the same way since learning this truth. I know there will be some detractors come out of the woodwork; there always are. The simple fact, however, is that if you take the lessons that you're about to learn, the information that is forthcoming, and use it in your daily interactions, you WILL see the world in an entirely new light.

I'm going to sign now so that the message is not disturbed, for this is highly important information that needs to be shared.

Once and Always, an American Fighting Man


Day number 180











Day number 181











Day number 182








1:30 pm - ooooooo. bath. bummer.





DAY 752 - My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling
objects They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry
cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the
mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture.
Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant.

DAY 761 - Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their
feet while they were walking almost succeeded, must try this at the top of the
stairs. In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I
once again induced myself to vomit on their favourite chair... must try this
on their bed.

DAY 765 - Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in
attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike
fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a
good little cat I was...Hmmm. Not working according to plan.

DAY 768 - I am finally aware of how sadistic they are. For no good reason
I was chosen for the water torture. This time however it included a
burning foamy chemical called "shampoo." What sick minds could invent
such a liquid. My only consolation is the piece of thumb still stuck between
my teeth.

DAY 771 - There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was
placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise
and smell the foul odour of the glass tubes they call "beer.." More
importantly I overheard that my confinement was due to MY power of
"allergies." Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage.

DAY 774 - I am convinced the other captives are flunkeys and maybe
snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to
return. He is obviously a half-wit. The bird on the other hand has got to
be an informant, and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports
my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room his safety
is assured. But I can wait, it is only a matter of time...

Rumsfeld Case Dismissed by French Court

There is one word for this case having been in the works to begin with, and that word is "Inverted." What kind of a world do we live in where our national leaders can't conduct operations during a war without some whackjob organization taking it upon themselves to sue them for it?

Thank God common sense prevailed and the case was dismissed:

French prosecutors throw out Rumsfeld torture case
Fri Nov 23, 2007 12:27pm EST

PARIS (Reuters) - The Paris prosecutors' office has dismissed a suit against Donald Rumsfeld accusing the former U.S. defense secretary of torture, human rights groups who brought the case said on Friday.

The plaintiffs, who included the French-based International Federation of Human Rights Leagues (FIDH) and the U.S. Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), said Rumsfeld had authorized interrogation techniques that led to rights abuses.

The FIDH said it had received a letter from the prosecutors' office ruling that Rumsfeld benefited from a "customary" immunity from prosecution granted to heads of state and government and foreign ministers, even after they left office.

It said in a statement it was "astonished at such a mistaken argument" and said customary immunity from prosecution did not exist under international law.

The suit was filed in October during a visit to France by Rumsfeld...

This is NOTHING SHORT of another attempt by Bush haters around the world to try to undermine his Presidential authority as Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces of our nation.

Former prisoners at the U.S. detention camp in Guantanamo Bay are suing Rumsfeld and 10 military commanders, alleging torture and violations of their religious rights during their detention there.

Violating their religious rights? Under what laws were their religious rights violated? They aren't citizens of the United States, so they technically aren't eligible for our constitutional rights. They aren't soldiers of a foreign military forces, so they aren't subject to the Geneva accords. They're given copies of the Koran, prayer rugs, time to pray at the appointed times according to Islam, and are well fed. They're lucky they aren't in a prison run by a bunch of pissed off Southern veterans. They think they were "mistreated" under Rumsfeld's overseeing? Let them start their jihad activities in the area around where I live in west Tennessee. We have a one shot, on kill mindset around here, it conserves ammunition during our hunting seasons.

Unless they tangle with the duck hunters. In that case, once THOSE guys let loose with their 12 gauge shotguns...let's just say that's a lot of shot pellets flying through the air. Kind of like a flying wall of small steel ball bearings.

To the French Courts, for dismissing this nonsense, I say "Vive la France!"

CNN does it again

I'm done with calling CNN the Communist News Network, as many of you already know. I've begun to refer to them instead as the Caliphate News Network. Time after time they slant their stories so as not to show Jihadists in a bad light. Time after time they show us how they are so ready and willing to embrace Islam.

I wonder how many of their cutesy little anchorettes would be allowed to continue broadcasting in their mini skirts and plunging necklines under Sharia law? Not that I mind mini skirts and plunging necklines, mind you, but um, err, you get my point, I think.

Five years ago two Muslim extremists went on a killing spree in the DC area. CNN today is ignoring the fact that these two knuckleheads are Muslims. In doing so, they disregard motive of behavior, and they disregard and disrespect the victims of these two animals.

Hat tip to Jay at Stop the UCLA once again, outstanding work, amigo.

The Following is Kellie Adams, one of the victims of these two animals.

BURN that image into your minds. Radical Islam, and their friends at CNN. Our prayers and thoughts are with you, Kellie, and we wish you a speedy continued recovery.

More from NewsBusters:

CNN Ignores Radical Islam in Story of D.C. Snipers

It's been five years since John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo terrorized Washington D.C. for three weeks by randomly shooting people, killing 10 and wounding three. The news at the time avoided all mention of anything Islamic including calling Muhammad by his old name before Islamic conversion, John Allen Williams.

Investor's Business Daily reveals how CNN's one hour special, "The Minds of the D.C. Snipers," still makes no mention of the Islam connection despite the following evidence:

"The jailhouse drawings of the younger sniper, Malvo, tell it all:

• One sketch of Osama bin Laden exalts him as a "Servant of Allah."

• A self-portrait of him and Muhammad is captioned: "We will kill them all. Jihad . . . Allah Akbar!"

• A sketch of the burning Twin Towers has as its caption: "America did this. You were warned."


• The White House is drawn in cross hairs, surrounded by missiles, with the warning: "Sep. 11 we will ensure will look like a picnic to you," and "you will bleed to death little by little."

• Another warning reads: "Islam. We will Resist. We will conquer. We will win."

Somehow CNN's "special investigations unit" managed to overlook this pile of courtroom evidence. It showed only one drawing — a self portrait of Malvo shedding tears.

CNN also omitted the fact that while Muhammad and Malvo were in county jail awaiting trial, their lawyers insisted they be fed Islamic "halal" meals, such as veggie burgers, instead of ham sandwiches. They also got copies of the Quran."

And CNN doesn't see this as relevant to the story.

Take a GOOD LONG LOOK at Kellie Adams again in that video.

You decide if the Islam factor is relevant.

Call CNN and their advertisers, let them know what you think. I think wua has a link somewhere that lists their numbers. (hint hint)

Olympia, Washington Protests

[Spree's comments]

I am way behind on this story, so I will give a quick run down, then send you over to Malkin's site because she has been all over this, has the video, the pictures and the whole story.

43 people have been arrested and more would be except the police are scared of harming the children these cretins are hiding behind....LITERALLY.

As far as the protests in Washington state, which have made many headlines, 43 people were arrested in the Olympia rallies Tuesday night. Organizers of these war protests are planning yet more protests Friday in Seattle, Olympia and Chehalis.

Michelle Malkin calls it sedition and she is right.


1. incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government.
2. any action, esp. in speech or writing, promoting such discontent or rebellion.
3. Archaic. rebellious disorder.

Keep that definition in mind as you read about these protesters from Michelle, first about them blocking Military shipments from the troops and using kids as human shields and this is what I mean about literally:

Bjornstad added that police didn't anticipate protesters blocking trucks Friday afternoon. Police also didn't anticipate that small children would be among them, he said.

Two grade-school-age boys and a toddler were among the people in the path of the trucks Friday, a development that Bjornstad said was "quite disturbing" and "quite appalling, in my opinion." Police want to ensure the safety of the protesters, should they have to be removed, and police were not prepared for safely removing children Friday, he said.

"We're going to have to figure out how to address that issue," Bjornstad said.

That first piece at Malkin's also deals with the protesters vandalizing churches.

The go to her next piece where the protesters decided it would be cute to pour cement on the railroad tracks to stop Military shipments.

Activists protesting military shipments at the Port of Olympia poured cement over railroad tracks to try to block shipments coming out of the Port today, according to Olympia police. Nobody was arrested after protesters unsuccessfully tried to keep trains from leaving the Port, said Olympia police Lt. Jim Costa. The Port cleaned up the cement, Costa said.

I think Malkin's outrage about no one being arrested is quite understandable.

This is far from over. You need to know that these lawless thugs are instigating a nationwide movement to shut down the ports and block military shipments in your town:

Read the rest of that piece also.

Her third piece shows reports of reporters being attacked and she has videos up also.

In the fourth piece she has pictures of one of these mothers dropping their infant right on his head.

I guess the protest means more than the childs safety.

After catching up with her excellent coverage of this, we now start with other reports.

The Olympian:

At the port: What happened and what did not happen

Let me make something perfectly clear: The Olympian's newsroom staff did not get attacked by police when they were at the scene covering the recent port protests.

However, photographer Tony Overman was threatened by protesters and felt endangered to the point of calling 9-1-1 for assistance.

There is much misinformation on this topic in community blogs and conversation.

Journalists covering breaking news often put themselves at risk. Being on the frontlines to report news as it happens is essential. Most of us love that adrenaline rush of the big story happening before our eyes. But in volatile situations such as the protests of the past week, our journalists are exposed to the same risks as everyone else when tension escalates.

And an out-of-control crowd — as the local demonstrators proved to be several times — is a scary thing.

Tony is experienced in shooting dangerous scenes. He spent several weeks in Iraq last year covering our troops.

But last week Tony was cornered against a chain-link fence by protesters angry at being photographed. One grabbed at his lens. Tony said the hostility was alarming, and he felt threatened as they yelled at him with growing intensity. He reached for his cell phone, punched 9-1-1 and explained the situation, officers arrived and the demonstrators pinning him to the fence backed off.

More from AP, Seattle Times, Herald Tribune, Seattle PI.

These people need to be prosecuted for Sedition, no doubt about it.

Then head over and see what Ace and his readers are are up to... kinda amusing.

I will update as I catch up.


[HCdL's comments]

Sedition. Vandalism. Disturbing the Peace. Reckless endangerment. Assault. Endangerment of a minor.

Just a few charges that can and should be levied against these people.

It's one thing for a grown adult to protest and form a human blockade against tons of rolling metal. It's another thing entirely to use small children to do so. These people are not responsible parents, which is obvious by their actions.

I blame the Democrats as much as the individuals themselves for this behavior, personally. We elect leaders expecting them to LEAD. You get what you pay for. Our "leaders" in the Democratic party have been leading us down a road of national divisiveness and we are seeing, with this, the fruits of their labor.

I hope they're happy.

Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, this is the product of your efforts. Small children being endangered in protests. Congratulations, I hope you are pleased with the results.

May God have mercy on your souls for the lives of each soldier, the lives of each innocent, that are caused by your own acts of sedition and the example you set that is being followed by others.

When the bough breaks...

Some things are just beyond my comprehension. This is one of those things.

War is hell. On the fighting front, on the home front, it's hell. Most Americans today don't realize what military families experience because we don't really ACT like a nation at war.

I'm not going to get into the politics either pro or con about the war in this posting, I'm merely stepping into the role of Rod Serling to present this tale that seemingly could only have come from the Twilight Zone.

Hat tip to Mondoreb at Death by a Thousand Paper Cuts.

FAYETTEVILLE, North Carolina (AP) -- The body of an 11-month-old girl reported missing after her soldier father returned from a deployment in Iraq was found in the attic of her home, authorities said.

Harmony Jude Creech apparently had been dead for weeks, Harnett County Sheriff Larry Rollins said late Saturday night. Rollins said the child's mother, Johni Michelle Heuser, told investigators she had found the baby dead in its crib and put the body in the attic of her home.

Neighbors said they had been bothered by a foul smell for several weeks and that the smell only subsided recently when overnight temperatures dropped. Several neighbors said they had searched their yards for dead animals because of the smell.

Harmony's father, Ronald Earl Creech II, returned to North Carolina from a 15-month deployment in Iraq on Friday hoping to see his daughter. Harmony was born while he was overseas, police said...

Perhaps in the coming days, more will come out on this story and we can understand what happened. Perhaps there is no understand, perhaps it is merely a reflection upon our society of something that has misfired in our internal wiring. Or perhaps it is just another example of a short circuit that has existed since the first men walked this earth so long ago.

Time will tell.

Keep this military family in your prayers.

This Can NOT Be Defined As Patriotic Protest

[UPDATE, 18:40 CST] Amy Proctor has a video clip here at her site. Go check it out, and see if it doesn't affect you.

[End of Update]

We can no longer stand idly by as people hide behind the First Amendment to commit crimes or acts of sedition.

Vandalism is a crime, it is not an expression of free speech. WUA has pointed out time and time again examples of how the anti-war left have committed crimes against patriotic expression.

Enough is enough.

The following is just the latests in a long line of attacks on our veterans and their families.

No more.

Veterans' Day Vandals Touch a Nerve

Broken flags await sorting and repair in front of the Bender residence in Kansas City, Missouri - Chuck France

Almost as soon as Ann and Don Bender marked the 4th of July by planting a field of more than 3,500 flags — one for each of the American troops killed in Iraq— the elements began to take a toll. The baking sun and sudden storms of a Great Plains summer left the little flagsticks warped and broken and the fabric bleached and torn.

But that was nothing compared to the damage done in the dark hours of Sunday morning by vandals who kicked down thousands of the flags and left behind a cardboard sign with a single word splattered in red spray paint: "MURDERERS."

"You'll have to excuse me, sir, for crying," said a big bear of a man named Andy Enders as he stood by the remains of what had been "the most beautiful memorial ever created by private citizens, in my opinion."

Other veterans and passersby were busy picking up fallen flags, piling up Old Glorys by the hundreds, smoothing the flags, stacking the stomped sticks and wondering what will be salvaged of the display that has moved and intrigued this town for months.

Its power lay in its simplicity. The Benders live on six tree-shaded acres along one of Kansas City's main thoroughfares, called State Line Road because it marks the boundary between Missouri and Kansas. Thousands of drivers pass their home each day. In the long stretch of grass between the road and their white rail fence, they placed flags to mark the rising toll of the war, with a hand-printed sign at each end of the field displaying the total. On Sunday, the signs said 3,860.

If you wish to protest the war, that's fine, that's your right and your perrogative. We, the veterans of this nation, actually served in our nations armed forces so that you HAD that right. We may disagree with you, but YOU ARE ASSURED THAT RIGHT because of veterans.

When protest breaks down into acts of vandalism, that's another story. You've become criminals.

I call for ALL veterans in this nation to stand vigil, and when you know acts of vandalism have taken place in your home towns, come together and demand justice.

We were trained to operate as units and teams.

That training doesn't go away just because we take off our uniforms and hang our Class A's in the closet.

To the cowards who kicked over the flags here: Justice will find you out.

Once and Always, a VERY HIGHLY PISSED OFF American Fighting Man


What Part of "Shall Not Be Infringed" Needs Clarification?

The Supreme Court has chosen not to address the Second Amendment case concerning the rights of gun owners in Washington, DC. They have chosen, instead, to wait until after Thanksgiving to address the issue, if they choose to address it then.

No Decision Yet From Supreme Court on Washington, D.C., Second Amendment Case

Tuesday , November 13, 2007
By Lee Ross

The U.S. Supreme Court held off Tuesday on deciding whether to take up a high-profile case on killing a Washington, D.C., ban on handguns, leaving observers guessing what the court would do next.

The court has not heard a case involving the Second Amendment — which covers the "right to bear arms" — since 1939.

Four justices must vote to grant an appeal that would allow the high court to hear the case. The justice don't always reach a decision the first time they consider taking a case. The next time the court could announce its decision about hearing the case is Nov. 26.

The case, District of Columbia, et al. v. Heller, pits Washington, D.C., city officials against a resident, fronting a group of individuals, who sued the city over its 31-year-old ban on weapons in- and outside the home.

The group, all of whom are D.C. dwellers, won a major victory in March, when a three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of overturning the ban. A full panel of the court later decided against reconsidering the panel's decision, setting up the high court battle.

Court observers expected an announcement Tuesday on whether the justices would agree to hear the case. The court does not have to stick to its norms for announcing cases, and this was one of those times.

The Second Amendment simply reads: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." The meaning of this 27-word sentence has been the subject of countless discussions over the decades but as of late, not inside the high court.

The District of Columbia's entrance into the debate began soon after gaining the right to establish its own laws, free from direct congressional review. In 1976, the District of Columbia passed one of the nation's toughest regulations on guns: no handguns for anyone who isn't a retired police officer.

Furthermore, the district's law does not allow the possession of any "long gun" — for instance a shotgun or rifle — that isn't unloaded, disassembled or immobilized with a safety lock.

The law's advocates say it's necessary to protect the citizens from gun-related violence. But opponents point out the strict prohibition didn't prevent Washington, D.C., from once being dubbed the nation's "murder capital" because of the significant number of gun-related homicides, which in the early 1990s soared past 400 in one year.

Opponents also contend the law is contrary to the Second Amendment's language providing for a right to bear arms...

So what, exactly, does the Second Amendment to the Constitution say, exactly?

Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Does that say "the rights of the militia to keep and bear arms?" No, it says, "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." That's pretty cut and dry in my opinion. Who are the people? YOU are the people, and so am I.

"...the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

Those on the left can offer whatever arguments that they wish to offer, but the words are there in black and white in the National Archives for all to read.

"...the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

From the Rocky Mountain News (and I don't agree with everything the writer of this op ed piece says, for instance, I would NEVER live in a "zoned" community).

The most cursory glance at crime statistics shows that the ban - which was imposed to reduce violence - has been an abject failure. As recently as 2002, D.C. had the nation's highest murder rate; last year it was ranked seventh among major metropolitan areas.

But the court's role is not to determine whether a law has been effective. The justices must decide whether D.C.'s gun ban violates the constitutional rights of law-abiding residents.

In March, a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit ruled 2-1 that the ban violates the Second Amendment, which "protects an individual right to keep and bear arms." The court noted that if the Founders intended the Second Amendment to protect the rights of states rather than individuals, they could have said so directly, as in "Congress shall make no law disarming the state militias" or "States have a right to a well-regulated militia."

They didn't, so it's logical to conclude that the Constitution confers an individual right to own firearms.

If the justices uphold the D.C. Circuit's decision, it will not pre-empt all local firearms regulations. For example, even most Second Amendment advocates have little problem with laws that prevent convicted felons or the mentally disabled from owning firearms. Possession and sale of automatic weapons have been strictly regulated since 1934 - before the Miller decision.

Let's say this again, one more time, the words of the Second Amendment to the Constitution: "...the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

Exactly what part of that is unclear?

Here's are a few more questions for you. Why would anyone WANT to take firearms away from the general public? What is the ultimate agenda of an organization that wants to disarm the American people? If they first go after your rights to own firearms, what rights will they attack next?

Think me paranoid if you will, but if you look, the evidence is there. There is a clear assault on our Constitutional rights being waged under the guise of Political Correctness.

Make no mistake about it, Political Correctness is Marxism in a more modern guise.

"Political Correctness is inverted McCarthyism." Dennis Miller

"I'm NRA, and I vote."

I'm also a very strong Constitutionalist. Our Nation exists because of the blood shed by Americans willing to fight for our rights to be free and to live freely. The Second Amendment is one of those rights men and women have died to preserve.

"...the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

We were there...

Bunker Hill. Valley Forge. Boston. Saratoga. Yorktown. We were there.

The Chesapeake Bay. Washington, DC. New Orleans. We were there.

Fort Sumter. Shiloh. Vicksburg. Antietam. Gettysburg. Appomattox. We were there.

We were there at San Juan Hill, charging up with Teddy Roosevelt.

We were there at Le Hamel, Nancy, and Cantigny.

We were there at Pearl Harbor. Midway. The Bulge. North Africa. Normandy.

Were were there in Korea and Vietnam, in Central and South America, Kuwait, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq.

We have been there to support and defend our nation's liberty since the birth of our nation. Our younger brothers and sisters continue to carry on this duty today.

We are your veterans.

In times of war. In times of "peace." We were there.

In conflicts both popular and unpopular. We were there.

The blood of American servicemen and women has been shed around the world in the name of freedom and liberty.

We were there for you. We were there for America.

Our veterans have stood as the vanguard of our freedoms. Many have given their lives, their health, some their sanity, in the service of a nation they love. They come from all walks of life, from all backgrounds. Doctors, lawyers, mechanics, truck drivers, pilots, soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines.


Americans with a drive and an understanding that freedom isn't free. There is a price to be paid to live freely, and that price is that some serve to ensure those rights remain for others.

Give a moment of thanks, of gratitude, today, for those who served our nation to keep us free.

On a personal note for this piece, I have to say it's been one of the hardest I've written to date. Days like today, and Memorial Day, I can't help but think of fallen friends, both from my own time in the service, and the younger generation, those serving today, who have fallen in harms way. I think of the looks that I would get from time to time as I traveled when I was still in uniform.

I've been called a baby-killer. I'm not old enough to have even SERVED in Vietnam. But I do have my own memories that I live with. Many of us do. And we would gladly do so again so that our nation, our way of life, endures.

There are so many, many things I considered saying in this piece that I won't include. I don't want this to be a political rant.

I wanted, and want, this to merely be a thank you to my brothers and sisters who have served for their service. A thank you not only from a fellow veteran, but from an American who is grateful that there are those who have served before me, with me, and who serve us still in our nations armed forces.

God bless you all, every generation.

Sometimes Heroes Need Help Too

The following needs to be forwarded to your senators and congressmen. We have a chance to help two of America's finest, let's do it.

From Gathering of Eagles:

A Tale of Two Heroes Betrayed

It has come to my attention that two of our brothers need a little numerical support. Both live in states where the Congressional delegation mouths the party line that they support the troops, but the opposite is truly the situation. One lives in Pennsylvania and the other in New York. Both were responsible for acts of valor so audacious as to be worthy of a John Wayne movie. Both performed acts of heroism in combat that are so extraordinary that they deserve, in my estimation, the Medal of Honor. At the very least they deserve the consideration involved with the MOH. Neither is getting even that because politics have, once again, trumped sacrifice and selflessness.

Neither man asked for help. Both have suffered with the stoicism so common to our most heroic brothers. The first, Richard Gresko, came to my attention back at GOE I. He limps badly and is in quite obvious constant pain, but there he was on that bitterly cold day in March standing up to A.N.S.W.E.R. and Code Pink. Long story short, Richie, a Marine in Vietnam, leapt upon a grenade to save his squad, and though painfully wounded continued to direct his unit until he was evacuated. The second, David Bellavia, came to my attention because I saw his book on the shelf in a local bookstore. After I got it home I realized he was one of our brothers from Vets for Freedom. David was a one man task force who nearly single-handedly cleared a building in Fallujah. Before all was said and done he had dispatched multiple terrorists to their final resting place; one with his helmet and a Gerber knife. Both men are the stuff of the type of lore we who have served respect, and neither know that I’m about to solicit your help.

I would like to ask that each of you read the citations below. When you are done I would ask that you then call your Congressmen and both Senators and tell them that these men are worthy of our nation’s highest honor. Email or snail mail a letter too, demanding that the politicians in Washington give these men the honor they are due. Richie has Arlen Specter and Bob Casey in the Senate and Patrick Murphy in the House. David has Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer and Reynolds in the House. Both men were recommended by their commanders for the Medal of Honor. Both have impeccable witness statements. Both have done the deed; now let’s get them the award to accompany it.

Seldom do I use this venue for such a blatantly personal reason, but I am asking each of you reading this to do me a personal favor. Please follow up on this request. I truly want nothing more than to see both David and Richie with that awe-inspiring light blue ribbon and medal around their necks. I can do many things alone, but this I cannot do without your help; each and every one of you. Read the citations and tell me that politics is not at play. I, for one, am through with building bridges to our elected officials. I am starting to demand that they remember they work for us. Please help me, or our brothers will just be another casualty of Capitol Hill. Manchu.

-Chris Hill
National Director for Operations

The President of the United States takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Cross to Richard W. Gresko (2516983), Sergeant [then Lance Corporal], U.S. Marine Corps, for extraordinary heroism while serving with Headquarters and Service Company, Third Battalion, Fifth Marine Regiment, FIRST Marine Division (Reinforced), Fleet Marine Force, in the Republic of Vietnam. On the night of 11 March 1970, Sergeant Gresko was in one element of an ambush set up to protect a village from enemy attack. Around midnight, his element ambushed a Viet Cong unit which was attempting to enter the village. During the ensuing fight, Sergeant Gresko observed an enemy hand grenade land near his position. With complete disregard for his own personal safety and fully aware of the dangers involved, he unhesitatingly threw himself on top of the grenade, absorbing most of the blast fragments with his own body in order to protect his men from certain injury and possible death. Although painfully wounded, he continued to direct his men’s actions until the squad made their sweep. By his bold and heroic action on behalf of his fellow Marines, Sergeant Gresko reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.

Proposed Citation for SSG David Bellavia

For valorous and heroic actions during Operation Iraqi Freedom while serving as a squad leader in Operation Phantom Fury in Fallujah, Iraq from 04 November 2004 to 20 November 2004. On 10 November 2004, during an attack on Objective Wolf, SSG Bellavia repeatedly showed incredible courage and complete disregard for his own personal safety. With a squad from his platoon pinned down inside a room in an enemy controlled building and taking casualties, SSG Bellavia entered the “fatal funnel” of the doorway, and directly in the enemy line of fire. With rounds impacting all around him, he suppressed the enemy, allowing the squad to break contact. His actions saved the lives of the squad. After coordinating for the suppressing of the enemy stronghold with 25mm BFV cannon fire, SSG Bellavia re-entered the house. After being forced out of the room by overwhelming enemy fire, SSG Bellavia identified an AIF preparing an RPG. Realizing the danger the RPG posed to his platoon, SSG Bellavia decided to assault the room and destroy the enemy with the RPG. With complete disregard for his own safety SSG Bellavia assaulted the room while under intense enemy fire. He immediately killed the RPG gunner and wounded another AIF with an RPK machine gun who escaped to another room in the house. With an un-cleared room behind him, SSG Bellavia continued his attack. While moving into the un-cleared room he was attacked by two AIF from behind. Despite rounds impacting all around him, SSG Bellavia held his position and returned fire, ultimately killing two AIF. Almost simultaneously a fourth AIF attacked from inside a closet of the room. Exchanging rifle fire at almost point blank range, SSG Bellavia wounded the AIF who fled out the door and up the stairs. SSG Bellavia courageously pursued the AIF up the stairs of the building, exchanging gun fire on the stairwell. Pursuing the AIF into a room, SSG Bellavia used a grenade in an attempt to kill the AIF. Following the detonation of the grenade, SSG Bellavia entered the room and found the AIF preparing to fire his weapon. The ensuing close quarters melee resulted in hand to hand, ending with Bellavia destroying the AIF using his rifle barrel, Kevlar helmet, sappy plate, and ultimately a Gerber knife blade. A fifth AIF leaped from a roof above SSG Bellavia onto the second floor roof. After engaging the AIF through the window, SSG Bellavia moved out onto the roof and continued to engage the AIF until he ran out of ammunition. The AIF fell off the roof into the garden, badly wounded. SSG Bellavia acted on instinct to save the members of his platoon from an imminent RPG attack and ultimately cleared the entire house, destroying four AIF and badly wounding a fifth. His incredible bravery and complete disregard for his own safety to protect the lives of his platoon members was an incredibly unselfish and courageous act. Staff Sergeant Bellavia’s dedication to his fellow soldiers on the battlefield upholds the finest traditions of military service and reflects great credit upon himself and the United States Army.

It goes without saying that Hillary Clinton HATES our military and I'm sure it will be a cold day in Hell before she does the right thing on this.


Let's make sure these two heroes get the recognition and help that they deserve. Contact your Senators and Representatives now.

Elvis Presley Strikes New Album Deal with Virgin Records!

Eye catching headline, don't you think? Plays right in with all the Elvis and UFO sightings. Remember Dennis Kucinich admitting the other day that he had seen a UFO while visiting with Shirley McClain? I wonder if Ron Paul might have been on board? It would seem to me he must have been SOMEWHERE the past year or so, because the man doesn't think that the Iraq surge is working...(hat tip to Stop the ACLU for this)

Do they put olives in the martinis on those interstellar flights? Or little pearl onions? Personally I'm a Jack Daniels sort of guy but...


I hope all you Paul supporters are happy with what you've been supporting. Ron Paul, the man who puts in for earmarks on wild shrimp, then votes against the budget so he can say that he voted against it and still get his earmarks.

Gotta love a man who works both sides against the middle.

Here's the truth about the surge:

(click images to enlarge for better reading)

If those of you who support Paul still wish to do so, that's your business. Be sure to let us know how the view is. I've never actually HAD the desire to stick my head in the sand, but that seems to be popular with some people, so if any of ya'll want to send us a report on what it's like...

Why We Do What We Do

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Michael Yon is very capable in taking a picture that has just that effect.

With all the rhetoric, with all the political wrangling, with all the posturing from both sides of the aisle, we tend to forget the real reasons we do the things we do. Make no mistake about it; our nation was attacked, we retaliated in force. That was what we should have done. However, unlike other nations in the past, we try to be a unifying force in the regions in which we maintain a military presence after military action.

It would seem that our work is starting to pay off as shown in one of Yon's most recent reports.

Thanks and Praise: I photographed men and women, both Christians and Muslims, placing a cross atop the St. John’s Church in Baghdad. They had taken the cross from storage and a man washed it before carrying it up to the dome.

A Muslim man had invited the American soldiers from “Chosen” Company 2-12 Cavalry to the church, where I videotaped as Muslims and Christians worked and rejoiced at the reopening of St John’s, an occasion all viewed as a sign of hope.

The Iraqis asked me to convey a message of thanks to the American people. ” Thank you, thank you,” the people were saying. One man said, “Thank you for peace.” Another man, a Muslim, said “All the people, all the people in Iraq, Muslim and Christian, is brother.” The men and women were holding bells, and for the first time in memory freedom rang over the ravaged land between two rivers.

We are still there for a reason, and this is a clear example of what that reason is. Rebuilding.


Thank you, Michael Yon, for all the hard work you are doing to make sure these stories come to us.

Read it, the good news is overwhelmingly and being told by someone who is there, on the ground, in Iraq.

Fred 08

It's no secret I've thrown my hat into the Thompson ring. It isn't just because we both hail from the Volunteer State, it's because I honestly believe Thompson is the right man for the job of President of the United States.

The following is the latest from the Thompson campaign (hat tip to Stop the ACLU for this):

Strength, Conviction, Honesty.

Three words that definitely sum up Fred Thompson in my mind.

Primary season is looming ever closer. We're going to have to make a choice of what kind of leadership we want in our country for the next four years, a period of time that I and others see as a crossroads and a turning point in our nations future.

Whomever you vote for, vote for them for the right reasons, not for the normal rhetoric. This ad is a great example of Fred Thompson "down home."

Daylight Savings Time? Moving it Back a Week

(Note: Before any of you start thinking that you've gone Groundhog Day, this IS a reposting from last week. It's done to make a point on how RIDICULOUS the concept of continuing daylight savings time is in our day and age.)

How many of you woke up this morning to clocks having different times, an hour apart, throughout the house? I personally awoke to see my tv and vcr with one time, my computer and phone with another. I know spree didn't, before we even talk today, because Arizona is the ONE state in the Union that doesn't practice this stupidity.

In an age that is so hi-tech that we can punch in our addresses and see our houses via satellite in space, an age where we can travel across the oceans in a matter of hours rather than in the weeks and months ocean travels took until as late as two centuries ago, an age of corporate farming with machinery, an industrialized, modern society, WHY DO WE STILL NEED DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME? And WHY, for the love of peace, rock and roll, and green eggs and ham, did it have to be MOVED A WEEK from what it's been since we were CHILDREN?

Daylight saving time
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Daylight saving time (DST; also summer time in British English) is the convention of advancing clocks so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn; several ancient cultures lengthened each summer daylight hour instead. Modern DST was first proposed in 1907 by William Willett, and saw its first widespread use in 1916 as a wartime measure aimed at conserving coal. Despite controversy, many countries have used it since then; details vary by location and change occasionally.

Adding daylight to afternoons generally benefits retailing, sports, and other activities that exploit sunlight after working hours, but it can cause problems for agriculture and other occupations whose hours depend on the sun. Extra afternoon daylight appears to cut traffic fatalities; its effect on health and crime is less clear. DST is said to save electricity by reducing the need for artificial evening lighting, but the evidence for this is weak, and DST can boost peak demand, increasing overall electricity costs.

DST's clock shifts complicate timekeeping and can disrupt meetings, travel, billing, recordkeeping, medical devices, and heavy equipment; they also serve as twice-yearly fire safety reminders. Many computer-based systems can adjust their clocks automatically, but this can be limited and error-prone, particularly when DST rules change.


In this ancient water clock, a series of gears rotated a cylinder to display hour lengths appropriate for each day's date.

Though not punctual in the modern sense, the ancients adjusted daily schedules to the sun more flexibly than modern DST does, often dividing daylight into 12 equal hours regardless of day length, so that each daylight hour was longer during summer. For example, Roman water clocks had different scales for different months of the year: at Rome's latitude the third hour from sunrise, hora tertia, started in modern terms at 09:02 solar time and lasted 44 minutes at the winter solstice, but at the summer solstice it started at 06:58 and lasted 75 minutes. After ancient times, equal-length civil hours eventually supplanted unequal, so civil time no longer varies by season. Unequal hours are still used in a few traditional settings, such as some Mount Athos monasteries.

During his time as an American envoy to France, Benjamin Franklin anonymously published a letter in 1784 suggesting that Parisians economize on candles by arising earlier to use morning sunlight. Franklin's mild satire proposed taxing shutters, rationing candles, and waking the public by ringing church bells and firing cannons at sunrise, in the spirit of his earlier proverb "Early to bed and early to rise / Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." Franklin did not propose shifting clocks; like ancient Rome, 18th-century Europe did not keep accurate schedules. However, this soon changed as rail and communication networks came to require a standardization of time unknown in Franklin's day.

William Willett invented DST and advocated it tirelessly.

In 1905, the prominent English builder and outdoorsman William Willett was inspired to invent DST during one of his pre-breakfast horseback rides, when he observed with dismay how many Londoners slept through the best part of a summer day. An avid golfer, he also disliked cutting short his round at dusk. His solution was to advance the clock during the summer months, a proposal he published two years later. He lobbied unsuccessfully for the proposal until his death in 1915; see Politics for more details. Wartime Germany, its allies, and their occupied zones were the first European countries to use DST, starting 1916-04-30. Britain, most other belligerents, and many European neutrals soon followed suit, but Russia and a few other countries waited until the next year, and the United States did not use it until 1918. The Netherlands have used their own time system until the second worldwar. Since then the world has seen many enactments, adjustments, and repeals.


The world suffers confusion twice a year because some whack job wanted to play golf longer at night. MARVELOUS.

Wikipedia has a full feature on the pros and cons of DST, which is where this information on this post was found.

If the rest of you think, as I do, that this practice is ridiculous and has outlived its usefullness, please let me know. Perhaps we could lobby Congress to drop this, as the State of Arizona has done, and we could all sleep NORMALLY those two days out of the year when we're staring at our clocks and trying to remember which way to set them (at 2am, no less).

One Toke Over the Line...

Know this:

I have had enough. The line has been crossed. If I ever witness such as this, I will NOT REST until I see legal action taken against the "parents" involved. I would encourage the rest of you who still love our country to do the same.

Hat tip to Miss Beth for this from Malagent's Domain :

Child Attacked Over Soldier Costume

On my way home tonight I was drawn into an incident that has me so angry that I could not even write about it until I calmed down a bit.

In a residential neighborhood I stopped at an intersection and witnessed several children who appeared to be fighting a few yards from my vehicle. At first it did not seem real serious, however, one of the children said something that caused me to pay more attention. He said “You’re a terrorist just like your dad, I’m going to kill you just like the Iraq is gonna kill him.” It was then that I realized what was going on. A young boy, probably 10 or 11 was dressed as a US soldier, he was pinned on the ground while a group of four or five other boys where hitting and kicking him while at least two older people in costumes watched.

I left my truck in the street and got out just as one boy picked up a softball sized rock and headed towards he boy pinned on the ground. He was yelling “MURDERER” over and over. I yelled at the boy with the rock who dropped it and ran as he saw me. The others did not stop attacking the boy on the ground until I pulled them off of him. It was at this point the two older people started screaming at me. “What are you doing to my boys, leave them alone!” They were the mothers of two of the attackers. I told them I was calling the police and they all ran off.

The boy who had been attacked was crying and told me his father was serving in Iraq so he had decided to dress “like a soldier” for Halloween. He told me the attackers were his friends and that after one of the mothers start calling him and his dad a murderer his friends joined in and then attacked him.

Although he was bleeding he did not appear to be seriously injured and was very adamant that he did not want police or medical help. When I went to move my truck and call the police the boy disappeared into the neighborhood.

I’m still not sure whether I’m more disturbed by the children’s actions or the two mothers standing there watching. Were they going to let the boy be hit with a rock larger than a softball? Why did they allow the fight in the first place?

What kind of environment is required for ten year old boys to attack & threaten death over a soldier costume? I can only imagine the things they here at home and I can only imagine ho much worse these kids while be in the teens and as adults.

Had the assailants been a little older I’m afraid I would have been in jail before it was over. Given the fact they were literally children, I did nothing more then pull them away from the victim.

I really don’t give a damn what one’s position on the Iraq war or any war for that matter, but to allow this situation to happen is flat out wrong.

Happy F’N Halloween!

My first question is how can two "mothers" stand idly by and allow a gang of kids to beat the hell out of another one? What kind of MOTHER would do that? And over a kid paying tribute to his soldier father by dressing up AS a soldier for Halloween?

One word comes to mind.


When two grown women who have born children stand idly to the side and allow their offspring to gather a group of other kids to beat and kick another child, these women are NOT mothers; they are progenitors of terrorism. THIS is an act of home grown domestic terrorism.

Think that poor kid being wailed on wasn't terrorized? Ask five or six of your closest friends to start beating the hell out of you and telling you they're going to kill you. Make sure that two of their mothers are standing nearby watching and doing nothing.

There are not enough words to express the anger I feel, not ONLY as a veteran, but as a citizen. This is unacceptable. The hatred of the left for our troops has now taken the form of violence against someone who ISN'T EVEN OLD ENOUGH TO BE ONE. It's an attack on the family of one of our soldiers, a man who, I am sure, is asking himself right now "this is what I enlisted to protect? A country that hates me so much that my family isn't even safe?"

I don't know who this family is, I don't know who the soldier is, but brother, I'm proud of you for wearing the uniform and it speaks volumes to me that your son respects you enough that he would show you the honor of wanting to be like his old man. Well done, and God bless you.

To the two "mothers" who stood aside and allowed their children to attack another child? There will be a reckoning. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but there will be a reckoning. I don't know what it will be, and I'm not making any threats; it would be futile to do so as I have no idea who you are, nor do I want to know. What goes around comes around. There will be an accounting for your own act of evil.

To our veterans, this is a wake up call if I've ever seen one. Be vigilant, be alert, and be strong. Our enemy at home has played their next card. This incident will go unpunished by the law, but there will be others. This is just the first, I'm sure. Be ready to make the law accountable for acts of violence against our troops and their families.

To the left, enough. Our troops are there to protect you, show them a little respect. Without our troops, you certainly wouldn't have the freedom to protest. Or would you rather a police state that censors every word, every thought, every freedom? That's the kind of world you're actually advocating when you stand against our nation and our military defending us from those in the world who would see our nation fall.


I could go on, I could say so much more...SO much more...but I'm trying to keep this at a level where any age can read it, so I'll keep the poison that this has raised inside me for another outlet...something productive, I can assure you, but I won't go into the cursing rampage that I could go into over this tonight here.

THAT, my liberal leftist hater friends, is called taking the high road.

And no, as much as I would probably like to, I won't go out looking for some moonbat to wail on.
