Normandy, France

1944.

If you're one of the people who hasn't seen "Saving Private Ryan", go watch the opening sequence.  You don't have to watch all of the movie, just the opening.



"WHAT'S THE RALLYING POINT?"

"ANYWHERE BUT HERE!"

Ever try to run in full battle rattle?  Ever actually WORN full battle rattle?

Ever try to swim in it?

I can't begin to imagine what it was like on that beach.  I can't begin to imagine what those men went through.  I can't begin to imagine what it was like to be there on that beach as men fell around you and all you could do was press forward into Hell.

But I can damn sure feel grateful, and make sure their sacrifice won't be forgotten, ever.

Yeah, I'm a day early.  I can't guarantee that I'll be posting tomorrow.  All I can do is make sure this point goes up.

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day, Modern Liberal Edition

By Evan Sayet.  Sometimes you need to be reminded of who we're dealing with.

The Modern Liberal will invariably side with evil over good, wrong over right, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. Give the Modern Liberal the choice between Saddam Hussein and the United States, and he will not only side with Saddam Hussein; he will slander America and Americans in order to do so. Give him the choice between the vicious mass murderer corrupt terrorist dictator Yasser Arafat and the tiny and wonderful democracy of Israel, and he will plagia­rize maps, forge documents, engage in blood libels--as did our former President Jimmy Carter-- to side with the terrorist organizations and to attack the tiny democracy of Israel.

They're not just wrong, they're evil.  Ignorance that is caused by willfully rejecting knowledge cannot be virtuous.  Ever.

That is so much the mindset of the Modern Lib­erals. It's not that they are not aware of all the things that we're aware of; it's that they need to reject them in order to remain in this five-year-old's utopia that they've been told is the only hope for mankind: a mindless indiscriminateness.


But of course he was

Former President of Muslim Student Association arrested in Pedophilia sting.

Folks, anyone who's spent some time in the Middle East isn't going to be surprised by this at all.

Not.

At.

All.

I am of the opinion

That anyone who uses the word "Heteronormative" in a non-sarcastic way (unless it's doing research like R.S. McCain) is crazier than a shithouse rat and needs to be avoided.  They're also most likely to be some of the most miserable, self-hating individuals in the world, who make everyone else miserable...

And always vote Democrat.

Sometimes you CAN judge a book by it's cover.

This is what a third-world shithole looks like

Unfortunately, I'm looking at the USA right now.

It may be dangerous to be an enemy of the United States, but in recent decades it often has been almost as risky to be a friend. There was Ngo Dinh Diem, the first president of South Vietnam, overthrown and assassinated by his army in 1963 after losing American support. Or the thousands of Iraqis and Afghans who assisted American troops a decade ago but are still waiting for the visas for safe haven in the U.S. The uncomfortable truth is that America has too often treated former allies as expendable. 
The drama that played out this year around Carlos Eugenio Vides Casanova is a reminder of what can happen when time passes and Americans forget. Gen. Vides was El Salvador’s minister of defense in the government of José Napoleón Duarte in the 1980s. Duarte was an American favorite, with plenty of backing from the Reagan administration and Democrats who understood his commitment to democracy and human rights. . . .

This is a country being run for the sole advantage of the people in charge, just like some Central American banana republic.  If I were some other country right now, I would be extremely wary about entering into any deals with the USA, as the Democrats seem to think that "foreign policy" is equivalent to giving blowjobs to your enemies while ignoring your friends.

Actually, when you remember that most Democrats don't actually like America very much, their foreign policy becomes much more clear.  Why have a foreign policy that helps the racist, capitalist, patriarchal, 1%ers anyways?

This is why Obama caters to illegal aliens to flood across our borders, but doesn't do a damn thing to help the Afghans who helped us who are now in mortal danger from the Taliban.  Since America is bad, people who helped America are bad, and don't deserve any kind of support.

You feeling sick yet?  Stock up on ammo, people.  There's no guarantee that Hillary won't be the next President, and she hates this country just as much as Obama does.  Think about that fact, and weep for your country.  The actual possibility of Hillary as President convinces me that this country is in a death spiral, the parasites outnumber the producers, and there's no voting our way out of this.

Speaking of people who don't have a chance...

Rand Paul just assured that he will never be president.

People here in town think I’m making a huge mistake. Some of them, I think, secretly want there to be an attack on the United States so they can blame it on me.

Dude, as much as I hate John McCain, I don't think he wants America to be attacked.  I just think he's a liberal douchebag who hates the people who vote for him.

But Paul's statement is mind-boggling in it's sheer hubris.  And he probably just sunk his campaign, for no good reason at all.  He had plenty of support for his anti-Patriot Act stance without having to go full retard.

Lindsey Graham is running for President

He has less of a chance than I do, and I'm not tossing my hat into the ring.

Back

Spent the past few days on a boat in the Pacific Ocean.  Nothing like waking up and sitting on deck watching fish swimming around the boat.

Also did quite a bit of running on the island.  Clean air.  Loved it.

Hated coming back to the valley.  I cannot wait to leave this hell.
