Our Military Personnel – Like NO Other in the World

Thursday, November 9th, 2006

I got this from Darleen over at Darleen’s Place.  It’s sad that photos such as this are not shown in every USA newspaper.  I am so proud of our troops and all the good they’re doing in the world.

If the Democrats REALLY want to be effective in their protests . . .

Saturday, November 4th, 2006

In reading the Cotillion email, I came across reference to this gem from The Nose on Your Face.

Republicans Hint that Self-Immolation Might Be More Effective than Anti-War Hunger Strikes

Immolation15yr_2 With the elections just a few days away, Republicans continue to scoff at anti-war hunger strikes as “rookie stuff” and have quietly suggested that the anti-war movement should elevate their game if they really want results.

“Yeah, the notion of Cindy Sheehan surviving on banana smoothies for a couple days really has us up nights,” said one Bush staffer. “These guys have really got to step it up if they want to be taken seriously. They need to draw on the heritage of their 1960s anti-war predecessors. I’m pretty sure that if the bunch of them set themselves on fire, we’d take notice.”

Self-Immolation has been practiced as a means of protest throughout history, but was most common during the Vietnam War, when several Buddhist monks and American citizens burned themselves to death.

“If Cindy Sheehan, Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn and Danny Glover were all simultaneously lit up like torches, we’d probably have the troops home in a couple weeks,” continued the staffer. “I mean, I can’t promise anything– I’m just free-lancing here. But that sort of…demonstration of commitment…might get us to realize the error of our ways. I might be going out on a limb here, but a crispy Barbra Streisand might be worth a roll back of the tax cuts. Hell, I’d marry a gay Hollywood producer and adopt several Pakistani refugees if you set Alec Baldwin ablaze.”

Conservatives have a hilarious sense of humor.

John Kerry – the Gift that Keeps on Giving (a mini round-up)

Thursday, November 2nd, 2006

I stayed home from work today because of a headache.  I slept till after noon, and the headache is mostly gone now.  YEA!  Since I have some unplanned free time, I thought I would cruise around the internet and read some blogs that I haven’t had time to read in awhile.  Naturally John Kerry’s slamming of the military is on the minds of a lot of bloggers.  Here is a mini round-up of some of my favorites:

I haven’t read Blame Bush! in months!  And I’ve missed it.  I read this post about Kerry and laughed like crazy, and the bonus was that there was even more funny stuff in the comments.  Here’s a taste of some of the comment humor: 

Kerry walks into a bar. Bartender says; “Hey John. Why the long face?”

Did you know that at a recent Democratic fundraiser when John Kerry was handed a $10 million dollar check, he said, ‘I do.’

President Bush said John Kerry is on both sides of every issue. And Kerry replied, ‘No, I’m not … but there is some truth to that.’

John Kerry will be the Democratic nominee for president. Democrats finally found someone who is Al Gore without the flash and the sizzle.

They had a profile of John Kerry on the news and they said his first wife was worth around $300 million and his second wife, his current wife, is worth around $700 million. So when John Kerry says he’s going after the wealthy in this country, he’s not just talking. He’s doing it!

Michelle Malkin writes about John Kerry’s words about the military from long ago:

So much for John Kerry’s “joke” excuse. He meant what he said and, as Rove says, it’s a lifelong habit.

Beth at My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy talks about “Botched Joke Democats”  and  in John “Botched Joke” Kerry – Flashback she writes:

If the reaction by most of the idiotic Democrats/”progressives” (what a misnomer) to Kerry’s comments hasn’t shown you what the Democrats think of the military, and by extension, the concept of “honor,” I don’t know how plainly it has to be spelled out. These people are not fit to represent me in Washington or anywhere else. They simply don’t get it.   

She also has the video of Kerry from long ago,.

Darleen at Darleen’s Place has this photo.

Botched Joke

Beth at Blue Star Chronicles has “Carry Halp Us!” – the title tells it all.  But you need to read the whole post to get Beth’s unique take on the humor of Kerry’s idiocy.

Allahpundit at Hot Air writes about Kerry’s belief that an all-volunteer army would “exploit the poor and minorities.

“I am convinced a volunteer army would be an army of the poor and the black and the brown,” Kerry wrote.

Okay, where are the racism police for THAT statement?  Read the entire post to find out FACTS about our all-volunteer armed forces.  Kerry would be surprised – and all the people who support him should be embarrassed.

John Kerry, Al Gore – God Was Sure Watching Out For America in 2000 and 2004

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006

When I see and hear what train wrecks the two last Democratic nominees for President have become, it makes me realize yet again that God was indeed watching out for American in the 2000 and 2004 elections.

It has been amusing listening to all the democrats try to explain away what Kerry said.  They’re trying to convince people that he DIDN’T mean what he very clearly said, and that, as a veteran himself, he would never insult our military men and women.  The fact is, though, he did.  Of course his own actions after returning from service showed his lack of respect for the military and for our service personnel.  So his words don’t come as a big surprise – except I thought his “handlers” would have managed him a little better.

This is a man who is supposed to be an accomplished speaker.  There was no botched joke.  Mr. Kerry – from his holier-than-thou-perch – thought he could get away with slamming the military because he was speaking to a bunch of Democrats.  I guess he thought he was safe with his fellow Democratic snobs.

He’s taking the right track now, though.  There is no way that an apology would ever make up for what he said, and who would believe it anyway?  The only thing he’s sorry about is that his remarks caused such a furor.  The only way to fight it is to take the offense and try to make the die-hard democrats believe it was a botched joke – something that apparently isn’t very difficult.  That anyone could fall for that is amazing – but not surprising.  I’ve never seen such lemmings in my life.

Put Kerry with Al “Do as I say, not as I do” Gore with Bill “No morals whatsoever” Clinton, and you have the three stooges – just not as funny as the originals.

Thank God that George Bush is our president.

How I Will Vote on Election Day

Tuesday, October 10th, 2006

I will vote straight Republican. It comes down to one indisputable fact. The Democrats and their “progressive” anti-war posturing have been responsible for more American soldier deaths. If the “dissent is the highest form of patriotism” crowd could have displayed some REAL patriotism by keeping their anti-anything-remotely-connected-with-George-Bush vitriol to themselves for awhile and at least TRIED to show the terrorists that the USA is united, this war could well have been over by now. Meanwhile more of our precious service men and women are dying daily because the enemy continues to be emboldened by how eagerly the left is playing into their divide-and-conquer strategy.

Republicans aren’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but hell would freeze over before I’d ever vote for a Democrat. And even then, I wouldn’t do it.

Our Soldier Sons – God Watch Over Them

Monday, September 25th, 2006

Beth at Blue Star Chronicles wrote about her soldier son in this post.

I don’t know where my Soldier Son is. The last time I got a message from him he said his unit was pushing to another area. He was vague about where that would be, but I know it’s an area where there is a lot of fighting right now. . . .

It really hit me when I got his orders in the mail. He sent them to me for safe keeping and ‘just in case’. Just in case. That’s what really got me. The ‘just in case’. I tried to read the orders, but they looked like they had been xeroxed way too many times and were barely legible. The part I could read was his name, rank and the statement that he’s deployed in the Global War on Terror. That got me too. . . .

When I hear that the al-islamofascists have put out yet another tape of their disgusting medieval abuses and tortures of U.S. military Soldiers or civilians from anywhere I feel my anger towards them building. When I hear their fascist hate-filled rhetoric I just want to scream. . . .

When I hear the hate-filled ignorant rhetoric of our enemies within who just don’t GET IT, I want to scream even more. These are the worst. They are speaking against their own people, their own country. . . .

The main stream media is the worst. I listen to them put out propaganda AGAINST our own country and it is infuriating. It puts our troops in a much more dangerous position. Appeasement does nothing but prolong suffering and conflict. You can avoid conflict, but it only leads to unavoidable conflict. How they can do that and sleep at night is beyond my understanding.

All the “progressive” rhetoric against the war and against George Bush is killing our soldiers. It is empowering the enemy. Seeing the self-interest, stupidity and political posturing masquerading as patriotism and scholarly intellect turns my stomach.

It was reported recently that a study had been done that determined that the war in Iraq has made terrorism a bigger threat. If the idiot leftwingers could have been non-partisan and truly patriotic long enough to support our country through the hard times rather than turning tail and running when the going got tough, the war would be completely different.

Beth’s soldier son is my soldier nephew. I pray God will watch over each and every soldier and save them from our enemies from without and within.

Is Osama Bin Laden dead from Typhoid?

Saturday, September 23rd, 2006

According to this news report Osama Bin Laden is dead. If it’s true, it’s somewhat disappointing. Someone who was so evil and caused so much suffering to so many others should have had a much less kind death. But at least he wasn’t captured and given the opportunity to grandstand like Saddam has. As Bin Laden died and descended into eternity, imagine his surprise and shock when he saw – not the virgins he had imagined, but this:

ABC News has picked up the story, too. However, both sites got their report from Reuters – and we KNOW how reliable Reuters is – not.

A Mother’s Love

Monday, July 31st, 2006

I wrote the other day about the tragedy of losing a child and how different people handle that loss.  John Walsh became an advocate for missing and abused children.  Cindy Sheehan became a pitiful, glory-seeking psycho.  I read a post in Chez Diva (via BlackFive) about a mom whose daughter was severely injured in Iraq.  It’s an inspiring story.

Grief will only take Sheehan so far

Friday, July 28th, 2006

I have tremendous sympathy for anyone who loses a child.  It’s a pain of unimaginable proportions.  Unfortunately, it is something that happens every day. 

I admire people like John Walsh, a father who turned his grief over the murder of his young son, Adam, into a decades-long effort to help prevent other parents from going through the same hell.  There is no telling how many children’s lives have been saved because of his work.

Cindy Sheehan, on the other hand, has used her grief to further her own agenda and to work against her own country and against our own soldiers.  Now she has purchased land in Crawford, Texas so she can get more attention.  I wonder when the media will get tired of giving this pitiful excuse of a mother coverage.  Unlike John Walsh who turned his grief to better the world, Cindy has made it more dangerous.  There’s no telling how many of our soldiers – her son’s buddies - have been killed because of her mean-spirited anti-American, terrorist associations.
