Today we honor the fallen.

Here’s a website that does just that:

Honor the Fallen

Here’s another:

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Honor Guard

If you are able,

save for them a place

inside of you,

and save one backwards glance

when you are leaving

for the places they can no longer go.


Be not ashamed to say

you loved them,

though you may

or may not have always.


Take what they have taught you

with their dying

and keep it with your own.


And in that time

when men feel safe and decide

to call war insane,

take one moment to embrace

those gentle heroes

you left behind.


-Maj. Michael Davis O’Donnell

Memorial day.

A day where we remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom.

In loving memory of my friend Douglas Amuel LaBouff.
KIA Iraq
Rest easy, sleep well my brother.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell…

It is the
not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is
not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is
not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is
not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is
not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is
not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.


Did anyone really think that this wouldn’t happen? Just another case of liberal jurisprudence that goes against all common sense.

Way to go moron judges.

Here’s the story starting back in 2009:

Federal judges order California to release 43,000 inmates

Federal judges call conditions in the prisons ‘appalling’ and unconstitutional. A reduction plan is due by mid-September.

August 05, 2009|Carol J. Williams

California must shrink the population of its teeming prisons by nearly 43,000 inmates over the next two years to meet constitutional standards, a panel of three federal judges ruled Tuesday, ordering the state to come up with a reduction plan by mid-September.

The order cited Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s own words when he proclaimed a state of emergency in the corrections system in 2006 and warned of substantial risk to prison staff, inmates and the general public, saying “immediate action is necessary to prevent death and harm.”


Supreme Court upholds order for California to release 46,000 inmates

May 23, 2011|By James Oliphant | Washington Bureau

The Supreme Court, in a narrow 5-4 decision, has an upheld an injunction by a three-judge panel ordering California to release about 46,000 inmates — more than one-fourth the state prison population — over the next two years to relieve overcrowding.

The decision was written by Justice Anthony Kennedy and backed by the court’s liberal bloc. At issue was whether federal judges had the power to order the release of state prisoners as a necessary means of curing a constitutional violation.


Which brings us to this little tidbit.

Computer errors allow violent California prisoners to be released unsupervised

A computer system that lacked key information about inmates factored in the release of an estimated 450 prisoners with a “high risk of violence,” according to the California inspector general.

By Jack Dolan,Los Angeles TimesMay 26, 2011

Reporting from Sacramento — Computer errors prompted California prison officials to mistakenly release an estimated 450 inmates with “a high risk for violence” as unsupervised parolees in a program meant to ease overcrowding, according to the state’s inspector general.

More than 1,000 additional prisoners presenting a high risk of committing drug crimes, property crimes and other offenses were also let out, officials said.


Way to go you liberal morons.

I’ve always said he was a lying piece of shit. I think there are cracks starting to appear in his armor.

Here’s the part I like, AKA the money quote:

This comes from Fleming and Hayes

On another front.  Columbia college has a unique system.  EVERY student takes approximately the same 81 credits.  This is the “core curriculum”.
Unlike other schools this is not ‘one from column A, and one from column B’ but the same courses for all undergrads.

You need 161 credits to graduate.

The college handbook clearly discusses the fact that it is effectively impossible to transfer in as a junior because there is no substituting these credits for classes taken anywhere else.

Hence, you will not be able to graduate, with the required major credits.  (there is a way to appeal this – it has just never happened.  Or, apparently did in his case).

So, how did a self admittedly poor student from a third rate college (Occidental) get into one of the worlds great liberal arts colleges at a time when they do not accept any transfers?

This is a question I have continued to ask.

Time for a little eye candy boys.

It’s been a while.

That stupid shit heal just blew any chance he had at winning the primary for the GOP. What a fucking loud mouthed moron. I never did really like this asshole. I always figured him for a squishy conservative. He’s a RINO through and through.

I hope he enjoyed his short lived campaign.

Rot in hell Newt.

Krauthammer on Gingrich: This is a capital offense against the 11th Commandment

by Allahpundit

Via Fox News Insider, I’m posting this mainly to give the Palin, O’Donnell, and Rush fans in the comments a chance to say “look who’s talking.”

How much longer can the beatings of Gingrich go on? Judging from this, at least another couple of days, I’d guess:

Republicans say they were largely blindsided by the comment, which came on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. But some in Congress said they’ve heard Gingrich say this before. Campbell, a staunch conservative, said that the Georgian told a group of Republicans in a closed meeting earlier this year that they shouldn’t “be messing with entitlements.”

“I’m not inclined to support somebody that makes our jobs harder rather than easier, personally,” said Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), a member of the Budget Committee and former Republican National Committee chief of staff who considers Gingrich a serious candidate. “I don’t know what other people think.”…

Also, there’s this from Ace:

Gingrich Heckled: “Get Out Now Before You Make A Bigger Fool Of Yourself”

by Ace

I’m not a fan of heckling, so I say this without endorsing it: That’s an effective heckle. If you want to hurt someone, hit them where they hurt.

Apparently the guy didn’t even plan a big heckling incident. He just did it.

 Gingrich, visibly stunned, quickly moved forward to talk with other guests.

Fuhrman told The Register afterward that he just happened to be at the hotel. He said he’s upset with Gingrich’s disagreements with parts of the House Republican Medicare reform plan.

Fuhrman said he’s a solid Republican but that Ginrich “is a jerk.”

“I’m a strong Republican but he’s an embarrassment to our party,” Fuhrman said.

Newt Stumbles Out of the Gate

by Doug Powers

Newt Gingrich was on Meet the Press this morning in his first Sunday show appearance since announcing his intention to… challenge President Obama for the Democrat nomination, apparently.

Andrew Stiles at NRO has the details:

Newt Gingrich’s appearance on “Meet the Press” today could leave some wondering which party’s nomination he is running for. The former speaker had some harsh words for Paul Ryan’s (and by extension, nearly every House Republican’s) plan to reform Medicare, calling it “radical.”

“I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering,” he said when asked about Ryan’s plan to transition to a “premium support” model for Medicare. “I don’t think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate.”

As far as an alternative, Gingrich trotted out the same appeal employed by Obama/Reid/Pelosi — for a “national conversation” on how to “improve” Medicare, and promised to eliminate ‘waste, fraud and abuse,’ etc.

This is a great win for America. Let’s be clear on this one point though, OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden. An American soldier, who Obama just a few weeks ago was debating on whether or not to PAY, did. Obama just happened to be the one in office when our soldiers finally found OBL and took him out. This is NOT an Obama victory, but an AMERICAN victory!!

I’m am glad the shit head is dead, but it doesn’t change a whole lot on the ground, or in the grand scheme of things. Osama Bin Dyin’ was a figurehead at best the past few years. I’m fairly certain that his influence was minimal in the day to day operations of AQ. Most of the terrorist attacks of late have been generated out of Yemen. I am fairly certain that OBL didn’t order those.

Just sayin’.

At any rate, congratulations for a job well done all around. Even Obama gets minimal credit for authorizing the operation to take this piece of shit out.

Most of the credit belongs to the military. Not just the SEALs that pulled this off, which they did with the precision and expertise that has become the standard by which special operations are carried out, but to all the personnel involved in finding this dirt bag. Intelligence, operations, logistics, maintenance, Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and the Coast Guard, as well as the CIA and other intelligence agencies, all of them.

To them, I say job well done.
