Here’s an article from Ralph Peters.

He lets them have it with both barrels.




As we reached the 4,000th service-member killed in action, I found myself disgusted with both the Bush administration and its irresponsible, cynical opponents. The slogan, “Support Our Troops, Bring Them Home,” may be the most dishonest that ever intruded on American politics – but the war’s original sponsors haven’t rushed their own kids to the recruiting office, either.

With all-too-rare exceptions, our politicians, right or left, really don’t give a damn about our troops. Polls matter, grunts don’t.


While the focus was once on Easter Sunday, now it is on the Easter Bunny. But Easter Sunday is much more than a day of colorful plastic eggs and chocolate bunnies; it is in fact a day that left the world forever changed.

It had been three days since Jesus had received the death penalty by popular vote. His friends and followers were devastated, as they had come to believe that He was not just an ordinary man, but the Son of God. He had performed miracles, healed every disease, and even brought a man back from the dead.

On that third day—the day we now celebrate as Easter Sunday—His friends went to His grave, but instead of finding His body, they found an open tomb with no body in it. In fact, what they saw was an angel who told them, “Don’t be afraid! I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He has been raised from the dead, just as He said it would happen” (Matthew 28:5, 6).

Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday; now He offers to you the gift of eternal life and forgiveness of sins. This is the true story of Easter, and this salvation is for you.

Happy Easter and God Bless you.

Soldier Gets His Wish

This is a good story that won’t get much play from the MSM. Way to go Army!

Small soldier gets his wish

By George P. Slefo

Killeen Daily Herald

FORT HOOD – Five-year-old Gaven Cox was given one wish to do anything he wanted.

Instead of asking to go to Sea World or to meet Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Gaven modestly asked for some McDonald’s food. The child’s parents laughed and told him to make another choice.

“He told us he wanted to be an Army soldier,” said Melissa Heminger, Gaven’s mom. “I was a little bit surprised that he asked for McDonald’s, but in reality, he wanted to be a soldier since he was 3.”

Gaven, who is diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, was granted one wish by the Make-A-Wish-Foundation.


GRIEGO: Army lends power to boy’s dream

By Tina Griego, Rocky Mountain News

The Army pulled out all the stops on this one. Maj. Cort Hunt, commander of the local Military Entrance Processing Station, put the offer out to Make-A- Wish late last year, not sure anyone would take it. Hunt has arranged for Ethan to go through the same drill as any other recruit today. They plan to test him and his buddy, Jake Smith, fingerprint them, hand them uniforms and swear them in.

And so this is how Ethan Moyer, a fourth-grader from Emporia, Kan., finds himself in Denver Sunday night, in a fancy conference room with an Army recruiter and glass pitchers of ice water and a bunch of people hanging on to his every word because no Make- A-Wish kid picks being a soldier.

We forget what it is like to be 9 years old and building cities out of cardboard boxes and positioning soldiers as lookouts in a battle in which there are no countries and no politicians, where nothing is permanent and the only truth is that there will always be good guys and bad.

Keep it up Army! This is good stuff.

Catching Pigs

Posted: 22 Mar 2008 in Political Correctness, Politics

I don’t know who to attribute this to, but it really hits the nail on the head. Read it and think about it.

There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist regime. In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked: ‘Do you know how to catch wild pigs?’ The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said that it was no joke.

‘You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.’

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America. The government keeps pushing us toward Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time

One should always remember two truths: There is no such thing as a free lunch and you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself. If you see that all of this wonderful government ‘help’ is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might want to send this on to your friends. If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you will probably delete this email. But God help you when the gate slams shut.

From Across the Pond

Posted: 20 Mar 2008 in Military

Here’s a hero from the other side of the big pond.

British soldier awarded the Military Cross for fighting off 150 Taliban

Military Cross for hero of ambush

Michael Smith


A BRITISH soldier who almost single-handedly took on 150 Taliban after he and his 50-man convoy were ambushed in Afghanistan has been awarded the Military Cross.

Fusilier Damien Hields used his grenade machinegun to destroy seven Taliban positions before his ambushers realised he was their main threat. After peppering his vehicle with bullets, they hit the 24-year-old soldier. He had to be dragged off for treatment by his driver after he tried to continue fighting.

“Fusilier Hields showed extraordinary courage under intense fire,” said Lieutenant-Colonel Huw James, his commanding officer. “I was astonished at the state of his vehicle. There were so many holes in it, it was like a teabag. The Taliban did everything in their power to neutralise [him] and Fusilier Hields was having none of it. His actions allowed his patrol to come out of the ambush in which they were outnumbered by three or four to one and probably saved a lot of lives.”

Hields was awarded not only the Military Cross, the third highest award for gallantry, but also the Nato Meritorious Service Medal for his actions, which were part of a Nato operation.

However, he will not be allowed to wear the Nato award because army rules do not permit soldiers to wear non-British medals – an anomaly that has upset his commanding officer. “We think he has earned this decoration for gallantry and that it is only right that he should be allowed to wear it,” James said.


Very nice to hear.

Better Things

Posted: 19 Mar 2008 in Guns, Politics, Second Amendment

And on to better things…

The Second Amendment is in the Supreme Court being fought as District of Columbia v. Heller.

Supremely important case will examine the new anti-rights concept of “collective rights” vs. 200 years of individual rights decisions.

This is a momentous case in the history of the U.S. in that it actually may force the Supreme Court to make a decision as the wording on the Second Amendment.

As it stands, it looks favorable for the Second Amendment to be what the Framers intended, “an individual’s right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

As soon as there is more info on this, I’ll get it in here.

In the mean time, go educate yourself:

Too Much to Comment on

At any rate, there is enough crap floating around in the toilet that I am sure you can pick something out to sink your teeth into.

My thoughts on B. Hussein Obama is that he is a racist of the most high and a flat out liar. You can’t tell me that you can sit in a church for 20 years listening to the same idiot every Sunday and not be affected by the vitriol and racism that has been displayed. I am not buying it.

The Democrat Party continues to play the race game. Too bad the majority of black people don’t really know their own history. It wasn’t the Democrats that ended slavery. It wasn’t the Democrats that brought about civil rights. Just because Johnson signed the legislation, doesn’t make it a Democrat issue. The Republican majority forced his hand.

Just in case you doubt:

“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference. For if we don’t move at all, then their allies will line up against us and there’ll be no way of stopping them, we’ll lose the filibuster and there’ll be no way of putting a brake on all sorts of wild legislation. It’ll be Reconstruction all over again.”

– Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson (D-TX), 1957

Oh and in case you were wondering:

“Although it is relatively unreported today, historical documents are unequivocal that the Klan was established by Democrats and that the Klan played a prominent role in the Democratic Party. In fact, a 13-volume set of congressional investigations from 1872 conclusively and irrefutably documents that fact.”

The “Party” of the oppressed my ass. They are the oppressors. They always have been. They always will be.

I’ve said my piece on this asshole. On to better things.

Focusing on the Wrong Perp

Posted: 17 Mar 2008 in Politics

 This needed to be shown in its entirety. If America doesn’t wake up to the mental illness that is liberalism, we are doomed as a country.

Focusing on the Wrong Perp


By Michael Reagan

Along with most Americans, the media have swooned over Eliot Spitzer like women swooning over Barack Obama (about whom they are also aswoon), but are now outraged over the departing New York governor for doing naughty things to what appears to be a battery of hookers.

They’re picking on the wrong perpetrator. What Spitzer did to those ladies of the night — and the voters of New York — the Democrat Congress has been doing to us. That’s where we ought to be focusing our rage.

Spitzer, the scourge of Wall Street (which he claimed, often groundlessly, was screwing stockholders), came into office promising to reform the state’s government, which he claimed was screwing the people of New York. Instead he seems to have spent a lot of time screwing hookers and the voters of New York State.

Madam Pelosi and her co-conspirator Harry Reid took over the House and Senate promising to reform Capitol Hill. Spitzer screwed hookers; Pelosi and Reid proceeded to screw the American people.

At this very moment the safety of the American people is at risk thanks to Pelosi and the House Democratic leadership, who won’t let the House vote to allow the government to monitor communications between terrorists plotting to wreak havoc on the citizens of the U.S. On February 16, 2008 House Democrats allowed the terrorist surveillance program to expire, putting the American people in danger. The following week, the House left for a ten-day vacation. As Bloomberg News noted, Democrats have sought to block the Protect America Act, fully aware that it would pass with overwhelming bipartisan support, just as the Senate bill did earlier in February by a vote of 68-29.

Pelosi and Reid and their fellow Democrats are planning to stick it to taxpayers by refusing to extend the Bush tax cuts, which got us out of the post-Clinton recession and spurred economic growth on a heroic scale. They expire at the end of 2010. If Democrats have their way we will suffer the largest tax increase in American history — as much as $2 trillion according to some experts. The National Center for Policy Analysis has reported that the U.S. Department of the Treasury estimated that “repealing the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts would raise taxes an average of $1,544 for more than 100 million Americans and cost a married couple with an income of $40,000 and two children $1,933 annually.” That’s called a royal screwing, and it’s the American people getting screwed.

An increasing number of top scientists are disputing the claims of Al Gore and his fellow global-warming alarmists that the rise in atmospheric levels of CO2 is caused by human activity, or that the rise is causing global warming. Despite growing evidence that the critics are correct, Congressional Democrats are attempting to impose restrictions that would put an additional burden of billions of dollars on industry and commerce at the very time when the economy is crippled.

With clear and convincing evidence that the surge is working in Iraq, and that the Iraqis are now shouldering more and more of the burden of fighting al Qaeda, House and Senate Democrats continue to insist that the war is lost and are demanding that the United States withdraw from Iraq before the job is done, thus exposing the Iraqis to a rebirth of al Qaeda and threatening the entire Middle East to new terrorism.

Democrat promises to reform the sleazy process known as earmarking kept reformers from gutting this shameful and deceptive practice, thus allowing tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to fund pork projects in members’ districts to help them win re-election. Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. John Murtha was named as the number-one porker thanks to the large number of earmarks he managed to push through.

Compared to Congressional Democrats, Eliot Spitzer was a rank amateur in the art of screwing — he should have learned how to do it from his Democrat Party colleagues in Washington. They’re the real experts.

Been away for a bit. I figured this would be a good one to start back up with. Not that anyone really reads this shit. She’s  only the second woman since WW2 that  has been awarded the Silver Star Medal. Way to  go! Nicely done SPC Brown.

Lake Jackson teen awarded Silver Star for gallantry in Afghanistan
Proud grandmother says she ‘just did what she was trained to do’

Dodging insurgent gunfire, a 19-year-old Lake Jackson soldier used her body to shield five injured comrades after a roadside bomb struck her convoy in Afghanistan last spring. That act of bravery has earned her the Silver Star.

Army Spc. Monica Lin Brown is only the second woman since World War II to receive the medal, one of the nation’s highest military awards given for gallantry in combat.

”She just did what she was trained to do,” her 74-year-old grandmother, Katy Brown, said from her Lake Jackson home on Sunday.

Monica Brown, a medic, was part of a four-vehicle convoy patrolling near Jani Kheil in the eastern province of Paktia when a bomb struck one of the Humvees on April 25, military officials said.

After the explosion, she braved insurgent gunfire and mortars to reach five wounded soldiers. She shielded them as she administered aid and helped drag them to safety, the military said.

“I did not really think about anything except for getting the guys to a safer location and getting them taken care of and getting them out of there,” Monica Brown told The Associated Press on Saturday from a U.S. base in the province of Khowst.

Katy Brown said her granddaughter graduated from Brazos River Charter School in Morgan at 15. She joined the Army with her brother, Justin Brown, in November 2006 to get a college education, Katy Brown said.

She said she is not surprised by her granddaughter’s heroics.

”She’s just a strong, strong young woman, and she’s very caring,” Katy Brown said.

Monica Brown told her grandmother she didn’t have time to be scared.

She just jumped into action and ”made medics out of those infantry men,” Katy Brown said.

Monica Brown, of the 4th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, said ammunition going off inside the burning Humvee was sending shrapnel in all directions. She said they were sitting in a dangerous spot.

“So, we dragged them for 100 or 200 meters, got them away from the Humvee a little bit,” she said. “I was in a kind of a robot-mode, did not think about much but getting the guys taken care of.”
