Was wandering

29 February 2008

over at Stop the ACLU and found this little tidbit.  The AP is “urging the Supreme Court to give military detainee access to US Courts.”  Here is the problem with that.  First, the detainees are prisoners of war and are being treated as such (leads me to a rant for another day) rather than being summarily executed as spies since they were not wearing the recognizable uniform of any nation.  Seems that an AP photog was gathered up with a group of Al Qaeda and has been held since.  Go forth and read the original post and Jay has a much better take on it than I.

Veteran’s Day

12 November 2007

Technically yesterday. CINCHOUSE, SIT and I were at a swim meet and CINCHOUSE wanted to go and spend some of my hard earned green at the outlet mall and visit the BX at our local AFB, so I was unable to post. Guyk has a post up over at his place with numbers from the census bureau as to how many of are Vets.

To my fellow vets, I care not what uniform you wore, thank you.

As you head out for the

28 May 2007

beach, park, lake, or just the backyard to enjoy burned critters and beverages of all sorts, please, take five minutes and remember those that have served and gave the ultimate sacrifice to ensure your freedom.  I am proud to have served, but I am reminded the cost of freedom wasn’t just paid at places like Bunker Hill or Yorktown.  It was also paid in places like San Antonio (Remember the Alamo!), the trenches of WWI, Pearl Harbor, Chosin Reservoir, Khe Sahn, Kandahar, New York, and Baghdad.  Freedom requires a total commitment and a will to fight and die for it.

To my friends in uniform, thank you for that willing sacrifice.

Air Show 2007

16 April 2007

SIT and I went to the air show this past weekend and had a decent time, but that is not what this is about.  This is about the GREEDY SOBs that decided that is was appropriate to charge $3.00 for a COKE, can you believe that?  $3.00 for a coke!  Give me a break.  The installation and the organizers of this event should be ashamed of themselves for that.  I realize that is costs money to put on these shows, but $3.00 for a COKE!  Needless to say, SIT and I didn’t have any coke at the event.  Oh, and in case you were wondering, to get a burger with fries was $7.00.  For SIT and I to have gotten a burger, fries and a coke, $20.00!  Come on.  So SIT and I waited and grabbed a bite to eat on the way home and spent $12.00 for a sandwich, fries and coke each.  That is $12.00 TOTAL.

I’ll leave the traffic rant for another day.

$3.00 for a COKE!

Sadaam Streches . . .

29 December 2006

. . . a rope, that is. MSNBC just broke in about 4 minutes ago and reported that Sadaam Huessein was executed about 15 minutes prior to that. They cited 3 Arabic news sources and Reuters, but regrettably no pictures. More to come.

THE WRONG ARMY?

13 September 2006

THE WRONG ARMY?

Courtesy of GOC, thanks Denny.  I have to agree, the American Military man/woman understands this more than anyone else ever will.  This is a classic game and I think that I actually understand the rules, but then again, I could be wrong.

This has got to stop. When I was on active duty, we were instructed that the “Red Crescent” was the equivalent of the “Red Cross” in Muslim countries. Since some chucklehead wants to keep this going, remember this: It is MUSLIM EXTREMIST that flew THREE aircraft into symbols of America and flew a FOURTH aircraft into the ground where they want to build this memorial. People, I don’t care what it takes, we have got to get this through the lefts addled brains: MUSLIMS EXTREMISTS WANT TO KILL US ALL!!! This is not a game, it is not a threat to be taken lightly. The world changed forever on September 11, 2001.

We are in a war with an enemy that is not covered by the Geneva Accords. SCOTUS got this one wrong, too. They do not wear a uniform and on the field of battle, if you are not wearing a uniform, you may be shot as a spy. What would the left say if your troops, rather than taking them prisoner, treated them as spies as allowed by the Geneva Accords?

What the MSM will not tell you

6 July 2006

Christopher over at the Barking-Moonbat Early Warning system has a rather lengthy post up about a conference that took place a Ft Carson, CO recently. Go forth, read here it is quite lengthy, but worth the time to read and digest. I found it quite interesting that one reporter was actually a bit pissed off that his story was destroyed and that the pictures that his photographer took were not used.

Are we winning the war in Iraq? I believe that we are. I know folks who have been there and they believe that we are winning. Morale among the troops is high.

More proof that we are “losing” the war in Iraq

10 May 2006

Thanks, Chuck!

It would be so nice to hear this on every newscast, but since it doesn’t make President Bush look bad, you will NOT see it.  I like the way Chuck finishes out his post

“The mainstream media are a bunch of jackasses. We’re winning this war, everywhere except in the media. Just like Vietnam”

Go forth and read for yourself. 

From My Position… On the way!: We’re losing in Iraq, Just like we lost in Vietnam
