For a good cause

And a chance to get yourself another boomstick, which is always a good thing, right?

Kim du Toit is going to be running a lil contest in the future which I think you might be interested. I won't copy and paste the whole thing here, because it's rather long, but you can go read about it at your lesiure.

Since I'm currently insconced in the GFW land of Puerto Rico, I don't think I'll be participating. Although mebby I could get it shipped to my parent's house in Idaho?

Hmmmmmmm.......

Indeed

Alger posts a comment from a different blog here that I agree with more than I care to admit.

Kill them all - Sadr, Maliki, Saddam, whoever. Just shut [up] and start shooting. Make them cower, harangue them about their barbarity, install a military governor, give Ramadi the Hama -- not the Fallujah -- treatment. Enough. They have been given every chance, and exploited every chance for their own miserable little gains. They are cruel, venal, incompetent and stupid. The rest of the country will thank us for it, and if they don't too fucking bad. Stop managing the problem and solve it.


Call me too straightforward, but I don't understand why we aren't killing the people who are trying to kill us and detroy Iraq for their own gain.

Perhaps this would be a good time to re-state that we aren't pissed at the Republicans for acting like conservatives. We're pissed off at the Republicans for acting too much like Dimocrats, including the War in Iraq. Yes, we need stability. Yes, we need to raise that country up. But we can't do that by allowing a group of armed thugs to control their very own sectors of Iraq, or Bagdad. And although I doubt very much that we're going to do anything remotely similar to what the commenter quoted above wants to, we need to crack down on the insurgents and rogue militias currently running around in Iraq. Sadr? Screw 'im. I say cap anyone not in uniform who's carrying a gun or RPG around in large groups.

St. Louis wins World Series

As if you didn't know that by now. Since I didn't have a dog in this hunt, I was watching more out of just wanting to see baseball rather than rooting for either team. From what I could see, Detriot needed a few less errors, to say the least. It looks to me as if Detroit handed St. Louis the Series through errors and sloppy play. Not to take anything away from St. Louis, however, because they took every Detroit error and made plays off of it. So congrats to St. Louis! Maybe next year my team won't be resting at the bottom of their division.

Oooo, dat's gotta hurt!

Cause it's a bitchslapping of the first order. And if you're one of the people who think the Lame-Stream Media still does their job in Iraq, then you need to go read this piece.

That's all for today, folks. Sorry. Busy busy, ya know.

Just a nudge

Since I'm tired of politics right now, go visit DANEgerus and just start scrolling. See also RNS. Covering politics, so that I don't have to.

I wouldn't say that I'm burnt out on politics, but between classes and other obligations, I just don't have the time to follow it all right now. Couple that with the fact that as a military member living overseas, I'm an absentee voter. And since I knew I would be away from my house until early November, I've already filled out my absentee ballot and mailed it in. Also, since I'm a legal resident of Idaho, I don't have to worry about the Left tossing my vote into the circular file the moment it hits the county office. Add all this up, and I really don't have much of an interest in watching the Left lie, steal, slander, and violate their way into public office without so much as a hint of a fight from the Republicans. I dunno, maybe I'm watching the wrong races. I think that many conservatives are tired of fighting the Republican's battles for them. Toss in the feeling of many conservatives that we've been betrayed by the Republican party, and this might just be an ugly November for the Right.

However, that can only come about if people like me decided not to vote this year. And since I'd rather castrate myself with a beltsander than allow the gun-grabbing, power-hungry, socialist Dimocrats to run this country, I voted just so that I could vote against them.

That doesn't mean that I'm happy with the Republicans. It means that I'm scared to death of what the Dimocrats would do to this country. They're insane, folks. Unhinged. Loony. Coo-coo for Commie-Puffs. And insane people should never be allowed in power.

I am politicked out.

So instead I'll send you here, where Mr. Alger has remembered that it's St. Crispin's Day today. In in case you are wondering where you have heard of St. Crispin before, Alger provides you with the writing of one Mr. W. Shakespear. But it's that last part that I'm going to paste up here, because it's that last part that I think many civilians and the majority of the Left will never understand.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.


The best man at my wedding wasn't some highschool buddy of mine. It wasn't anyone from when I was growing up. It was a soldier in my platoon when I was stationed at Ft. Riley, who became my best friend. We talk to each other regularly. He's in Tennesee, going to college. And when I finally PCS back to the mainland, he'll be one of the first people my wife and I will visit.

The military does that to some people.

Gun control in Australia: Boom or Bust?

The answer will surprise you, but only if you're an imbecile.

HAR!

Anyone who learned history knows that the name "Nazi" was the abrieviated name for National Socialists.

And if you don't know that, now is a good time to learn it.

Hitler was a socialist. Coincidently, so are most of today's Dimocrats.

Day-um!

I knew that Teddy (hic!) Kennedy was a waste of skin, and anyone who knows me knows that I think he should be expelled from Congress immidiately, but I never knew just how far down he sank.

The antipathy that congressional Democrats have today toward President George W. Bush is reminiscent of their distrust of President Ronald Reagan during the Cold War, a political science professor says.

“We see some of the same sentiments today, in that some Democrats see the Republican president as being a threat and the true obstacle to peace, instead of seeing our enemies as the true danger,” said Paul Kengor, a political science professor at Grove City College and the author of new book, The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism.

In his book, which came out this week, Kengor focuses on a KGB letter written at the height of the Cold War that shows that Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) offered to assist Soviet leaders in formulating a public relations strategy to counter President Reagan’s foreign policy and to complicate his re-election efforts.


Treason. Treason, plain and clear. Actively working with the Soviets against a sitting President. He's a foul, vile, corrupt, treasonous vermin. Hanging is too good for him.

Yes, I question his patriotism. I question his sanity. And I think that not only should he be expelled from Congress, he should be expelled from this country.

And just in case

Any of you are sitting on the fence about voting, here's what a Dimocrat congress will bring about if you give them a chance.

Gun control. Massive amounts of gun control. Think California combined with Boston, MA. Do you want Pelosi and Kennedy telling you who can own guns and who can't?

Higher taxes, along with the damage to the eocnomy those taxes will bring. Our economy is ripping along. Job growth is amazing. The Dow has hit record highs. You want all that to stop? Just watch the Dimocrats repeal the tax cuts and watch our economy begin to crumble.

Greater growth of the nanny state. Yes, I know the Republicans aren't doing so well on that score, but who do you want in charge? A Republican we have some control over, or a died-in-the-wool socialist who's goal is the complete subservience of anyone not sitting in congress?

Complete and total surrender in the War on Terror. The Dimocrats have already plainly stated their goals when it comes to fighting terrorism. In two words: They won't. As the Dimocrats are controlled by their far Left wing, nothing short of total capitulation will satisfy them.

We have two choices this election: Bad, and horrible. Just because we might not like all of the bad choice shouldn't mean that we surrender to the horrible choice.

I know, I know...

I haven't been posting much lately. Hey, I'm in a three week ASI course, what's your excuse?

Noting politics on TV news - I can't remember who said it, but the quote is "Media Bias is worth 15% in the polls." Just remember that when you look at see a Dimocrat that's 5-10% ahead of his Republican opponenet. Seriously, it's a flat out assault on Conservatives in the media. It's been that way since the 2000 election. The alphabet networks are nothing but partisan whores guzzling the kool-aid put out by the DNC. And the DNC hasn't had a sane thought ever since Mad Howie Dean took control. So we can expect the vilest, foulest mud to be slung by the left side of the political sphere, as they claw for power the way a crack addict claws for his glass pipe. But what happened the last three elections?

Just sayin'......
