When is the revolution coming again?

Let me repeat for the benefit of the gubbmint asswipes - when you no longer due the job you're supposed to do, when you have abdicated the responsibility given to you by the common man, when you no longer enforce the laws that this society runs on, the citizens will have no choice but to do the job themselves.

A Texas deputy sheriff who fired shots at a fleeing vehicle after the driver tried to run him down faces 10 years in prison for injuring one of the passengers, a Mexican national being smuggled illegally into the United States.

The U.S. attorney, who won lengthy prison terms last year for two U.S. Border Patrol agents in the shooting of a drug-smuggling suspect, also prosecuted Edwards County Deputy Sheriff Guillermo F. Hernandez, who is to be sentenced next month

You might think that this is a Clintoon appointed moron who cares more about the widdle feewings of wetback (or dirtyfeet!) criminals that the people who are in place to protect this country. Well... sadly, you would be wrong. This idiot was appointed by Bush in 2001. Right now I'm just wondering how long it's going to be before Americans simply snipe at wetbacks and leave their corpses in the desert rather than call the Border Patrol. After all, why call the BP when they're more likely to take the wetback for a steak and lobster dinner with taxpayer dollars than they are to actually arrest the bastard!

Let me make myself clear - I don't fault the Border Patrol on this. I know that there are plenty of BP agents who want to do their job. But worthless cockwads like this US Attorney are making it impossible.

Why don't we put that attorney into a jail cell with the people he's representing? Sounds like a decent strategy to me.

And Another

Last Tuesday, as President Bush got off the helicopter in front of the White House, he was carrying a baby piglet under each arm.

The squared away Marine guard snaps to attention, salutes, and says:

"Nice pigs, sir."

The President replies "Oh, young man, these are not pigs. You see, I just came back from Arkansas. These are authentic Arkansas Razorback Hogs. I got one for Senator Hillary Clinton and I got one for our new Speaker of The House, Nancy Pelosi."

The squared away Marine again snaps to attention, salutes, and says:

"Excellent Trade Sir, Excellent Trade!"


A man walked into a very high-tech restaurant in a fancy hotel.

As he waited to be seated, he noticed that the Maitre D' was a robot.

The robot clicked to attention and said, "Sir, there is a one hour wait, And I am programmed to converse with you until a table is ready, If you please."

Intrigued, the man said, "OK."

The robot clicked a couple more times and then asked, "Sir, what is your IQ?"

The man answered, "Oh, about 164."

The robot then proceeded to discuss the theory of relativity, Interstellar space travel, the latest medical breakthroughs, etc.

The man was most impressed. The next day he returned, but thought he would try a different tack.

The robot again asked, "What is your IQ, sir?"

This time the man answered, "Oh, about 100".

So the robot started discussing NASCAR racing, the latest basketball scores, and what to expect the Red Sox to do this weekend.

The guy had to try it one more time. So the next day he returned.

Again the robot asked the question, "What is your IQ?"

This time the man drawled out, "Uh.....'bout 50."

The robot clicked, then leaned close and very slowly asked,

"A-r-e -- y-o-u -- p-e-o-p-l-e -- g-o-i-n-g -- t-o -- n-o-m-i-n-a-t-e -- H-i-l-l-a-r-y ????"

Praise for Russ Feingold?

Well, I still think he's a liberal twit who doesn't understand the consequences of a defeat in Iraq, but at least he can be credited with one thing.

Mr. Feingold's reward for honesty was to preside over what might have been the least-attended hearing so far in the Iraq debate. And those of his Senate colleagues who did bother to show up looked like they couldn't wait to hit an exit door. "If Congress doesn't stop this war, it's not because it doesn't have the power. It's because it doesn't have the will," declared Mr. Feingold. Ted Kennedy--one of two Democrats who put in an appearance--could be seen shifting uncomfortably in his seat.

That's because Sen. Feingold is coming uncomfortably close to unmasking the political charade playing on the Senate stage. Critics of President Bush want an unhappy public to see them taking action on the war. So we have the Biden-Warner compromise resolution condemning the plan to increase the forces. There is also talk of capping troops, of requiring redeployments to Afghanistan, of benchmarks and progress reports.

All these proposals have one overriding thing in common: While they may hurt the war effort, none are significant enough for Congress to take responsibility when Iraq is irrevocably lost. This is President Bush's war, and his critics won't take any step that puts them on the hook as well. Sen. Feingold's sin is to suggest that Congress do something more than play politics.
It's a delicate high-wire act, made more complex by the opponents' need to reassure the public that their actions, which will surely encourage the enemy and deflate troop morale, won't, in fact, encourage the enemy or deflate troop morale. This has led to the spectacle of the Senate one day unanimously voting to confirm Gen. David Petraeus, and the next taking up resolutions that would kneecap his plan for success. John Warner and Chuck Hagel are all for the troops, just not for letting them win. Very courageous indeed.

And lest you forget, this isn't just a Democrat American Communist Party thing; there are Republicans who signed onto the whole Non-Binding Resolution as well. In fact, congresscritters from both sides of the isle have tossed their spines, convictions, and morals out the window in an effort to weasel their way into a military defeat in Iraq. The reason Republicans lost in November was because they too closely resembled their Democrat American Communist Party counterparts on the other side of the aisle. They still do. Never since Nixon have the Republicans shown such a lack of leadership, spine, common sense and direction. The Republicans of today have spun according to polls so damn much that they've spun themselves into the ground. About waist deep. And they keep spinning.

He might well worry. If one thing has defined the Bush years, it has been the president's willingness to exert his executive authority in defense of America. He's done it with detainees, with wiretaps, with military commissions. And he fervently believes success in Iraq is crucial to American security. In any thorny debate over just how much authority Congress has to interfere, it's a good bet Mr. Bush's own legal team will be pointing out the strong constitutional case that only the president has the right to decide where and how to deploy troops, as well as noting the peril of ceding any of that authority to 535 mini-me commanders in Congress.

What happens then? What happens if President Bush ignores Congress's attempt to direct the war? A few in the Democratic Party would love for an excuse to commence impeachment proceedings, but the rest understand that's political suicide. Then there's court. If liberals were unhappy about the Supremes deciding the 2000 election, imagine the theater of nine black robes deciding the outcome of the Iraq war.

Whatever comes, Congress is to blame. For a month the Senate has been trying to wrestle control of Iraq from the president, but undercover, and in a way that that avoids accountability. Sen. Feingold shone a light under that rock this week, and now the hard questions begin.

The Stupid Party needs to stand up, grab it's scrotum back, and say "Nope, we're not playing this game. We're going to win in Iraq." Hell, that might just get enough people back for a victory in November 2008. But if they keep on being weathervane-like jellyfish, they're toast.

The Law of Unintended Consequences

Tends to bite people in the ass. Unfortunately, the people it bites are not the people who it SHOULD bite. The link is to a Publicola piece about Colorado's anti-smoking measure, which banned smoking in, among other places, bars.

Now, let me first say this - any law that bans a legal activity on the basis of "health" should be unconstitutional. Nobody is going to force anyone into a bar. If you don't like to be in a smoking bar, STAY THE HELL OUT! It really is that simple.

Business is down substantially, and Von Feldt doesn't have the records to show that he earned 5 percent of revenues from tobacco prior to the deadline set by Colorado's anti-smoking law. So no smoking in Billy's, as of yet.
'My revenues are down 41 percent,' Von Feldt said. He has laid off two people and now opens the bar himself seven days a week.
'I do all the janitorial work myself, too,' he said.
'With all the snow, I couldn't afford to hire anyone to plow it, so I do it by hand.'
Von Feldt said, 'We still get the same crowd, but they just don't stay as long.
In this kind of weather, who could stand outside and smoke a cigarette?"

So, damn near half this bar owner's income is gone, and two people are laid off. Tell me, what's more hazardous to your health - working in a smoky environment, or getting kicked out of your house because you lost your job and can't pay the rent?

Gargh! Nanny-statist fucking PUKES!

I know how this guy feels

Can we win with the Left in full blown denial and gripped by BDS?

Terrorists cut the heads off of American citizens on the internet...and there is no outrage, but an American soldier kills an Iraqi in the midst of battle, and there are investigations, and sometimes soldiers are even jailed...for doing their job.

It is absolutely sickening to me to think our country has come to this. Why are we so obsessed with the bad news? Why will people stop at nothing to be against this war, no matter how much evidence of the good we've done is thrown in their face? When is the last time CNN or MSNBC or CBS reported the opening of schools and hospitals in Iraq? Or the leaders of terror cells being detained or killed? It's all happening, but people will not let up their hatred of President Bush. They will ignore the good news, because it just might show people that Bush was right.

America has lost its will to fight. It has lost its will to defend what is right and just in the world. The crazy thing of it all is that the American people have not even been asked to sacrifice a single thing. ItÂ?s not like World War II, where people rationed food and turned in cars to be made into metal for tanks. The American people have not been asked to sacrifice anything. Unless you are in the military or the family member of a servicemember, its life as usual...the war doesn't affect you.

But it affects us. And when it is over and the troops come home and they try to piece together what's left of them after their service...where will the detractors be then? Where will the Cindy Sheehans be to comfort and talk to soldiers and help them sort out the last couple years of their lives, most of which have been spent dodging death and wading through the deaths of their friends? They will be where they always are, somewhere far away, where the horrors of the world can't touch them. Somewhere where they can complain about things they will never experience in their lifetime; things that the young men and women of America have willingly taken upon their shoulders.

There's more than just those few paragraphs, but while thinking about Leftist asshat Bill Arkin, and why I was so pissed off at him, it struck me - The Left and their beloved "Chickenhawk" meme.

For years now, the Left has belittled anyone who hasn't served in the military if they supported the war. Hell, we had the entire Democrat American Communist Party calling President Bush a chickenhawk during the buildup to the Iraq invasion. I've been called a chickenhawk more than once, which as a soldier in the Army I find rather funny. But the Left's message was "If you haven't served, you can't give an opinion on war!"

That has also been coupled with the granting of absolute moral authority to anyone who lost a loved one and then protested the war. Example A: Cindy Sheehan. Rarely do you see anyone given more of a pulpit to bash the President, and the only reason she was able to do so was because her son died in Iraq.

Now you have the troops, the boots on the ground giving their opinion, the vast majority of which is pro-war, and suddenly the Left tells them to shut it. Quiet, you brainwashed kill-bots! You mercenaries! Why should we support you, you baby-raping bushco robots!

After screaming for years that if you haven't served or lost anyone you cared about in war, you shouldn't even be speaking, the Left suddenly cannot stand to hear the words of people who are currently serving and have lost loved ones.

The rank hypocrisy leaves me nauseated.

If we lose this war, it will not be because of the troops. It will not be because of any military battles. It will be because of the Democrat American Communist Party's desparate bid to wrestle defeat from the jaws of victory. It will be because of the anti-American Left doing everything in it's power to shut down our military's might. It will be because of the people in this country who would rather have political victory than strategic victory, and quite honestly, it makes me sick.

Systematic breakdown

You know, when the press functions as it should, it can be a boon. No, truly, it can. But in order for the press to actually function, it needs to be responsible and objective in it's reporting. And I don't think we've had a responsible, objective press corps in this country for over forty years now. Case in point regarding lack of responsibility? THIS.

A photograph and videotape of a Texas soldier dying in Iraq published by the New York Times have triggered anger from his relatives and Army colleagues and revived a long-standing debate about which images of war are proper to show.

The journalists involved, Times reporter Damien Cave and Getty Images photographer Robert Nickelsberg, working for the Times, had their status as so-called embedded journalists suspended Tuesday by the Army corps in Baghdad, military officials said, because they violated a signed agreement not to publish photos or video of any wounded soldiers without official consent.

I believe that the lack of objectivity in today's media directly leads to it's lack of responsibility. To be blunt - the media's desire to push a biased agenda, i.e. Iraq is a quagmire, we're losing the war in Iraq, Bush is Hitler, ect. has led to the idiotic postings that violate every rule out there, such as not posting dead servicemember's photos until AFTER THE FAMILY HAS BEEN NOTIFIED!

I'll be blunt - the media, which hates the War in Iraq, is fighting against the military in general, and President Bush in particular. The media is a good part of why we left Vietnam, and they want to do the same thing to us today in the Middle East. In order to accomplish their goals, they have tossed aside every basic precept of objective journalism, and begun printing half-stories that are not the least objective. For Pete's sake, when a CBS reporter puts out an al-Qaeda propaganda video can calls it "news", you can no longer doubt their lack of objectivity!

The Press is broken, people. Cracked. Damaged. They're not anti-war, they're just on the other side. It's a systematic breakdown, resulting in a product that is worse than worthless.

More Laptop Troubles

So, we sent the laptop back to HP a few days ago. Got an email listing a few things that had to be corrected - more hardware problems. Not that I was too surprised. When I got it back last time, and still had issues with it despite taking all of your suggestions and applying them, I knew it wasn't just software that was causing the problems.

End result? More stuff getting replaced. Yay. Don't know when I'll get it back.

Happy Groundhog Day!

Although, living where I do, I couldn't care less if the fuzzy bastard sees his shadow or not. I'll be sweating my ass off either way.

Remember when we were kinda sorta considering shifting to the New Blogger?

Apparently, it, ahem, blows.

Say what?

Pelosi wants to use military planes for personal travel?

The office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pressing the Bush administration for routine access to military aircraft for domestic flights, such as trips back to her San Francisco district, according to sources familiar with the discussions.

The sources, who include those in Congress and in the administration, said the Democrat is seeking regular military flights not only for herself and her staff, but also for relatives and for other members of the California delegation. A knowledgeable source called the request "carte blanche for an aircraft any time."

The Pentagon needs to tell Pelosi "Hell no!" and leave it at that. According to the report, Denny Hastert used military planes to travel from his district to D.C., but didn't use it for personal travel or for his staff. Well, fuck him too. The military isn't a shuttle service for pampered, over-paid congressional parasites! Let Pelosi use her millions to get back to San Fran! And if you don't remember how I feel about Hastert, let's just say that it wouldn't be polite to repeat my comments in front of children or good company.

Nice way to bring accountability to government, you worthless hag!

At least they're honest

Since I was over at Milblogs, I figured I would mention this little article, if you haven't seen it already. It's a picture perfect definition of someone who has never been in the military, never even been around the military, and doesn't support the military.

At least he's honest about it, even if he is a deluded halfwit who doesn't have a clue as to what he's talking about. I'd much rather deal with people who admit they can't stand the military, than deal with the liars who claim to "support" the troops when we all know what they really want to do is tear our military down and turn it into a UN peacekeeping force.

Here's one of the indicators of how the writer thinks of the troops:

But it is the United States and instead this NBC report is just an ugly reminder of the price we pay for a mercenary - oops sorry, volunteer - force that thinks it is doing the dirty work.

We're all just mercenaries to him. What a festering genital sore.

UPDATE: John from OPFOR has written a response far more eloquent than I could.

I can't fight this type of ignorance. I just can't. As much as I'd like to, I can't grab Arkin by the ear, and show him one of our squadron chefs, a young airman who works on her masters when she's not cooking meals for our crews. I can't take him to my friend Ryan's grave, a college graduate killed by an IED in Baghdad, who opted to honor his obligations as an enlisted man instead of pursuing a more lucrative line of work. Or introduce him to the security forces airman who walks long patrols through the winter snow, reciting the epics of Homer to himself so that he'll be prepared for his Classics exam. These people aren't the exception, they are the standard.

If there is a war that's unwinnable, it's the war on this type of horrid ignorance. The type of uniformed, intellectually lazy thinking that can only exist in the sheltered bubble of cocktail parties and classrooms. Arkin is a gazer. A man forever condemned to peering out the window into the real world, watching the exertions of men better than himself. And yet he fancies himself the educated one. Any logical human being would trade career in journalism for the expertise gained by serving a mere one month in the box, yet this slime fancies his opinion so informed, so expert, so utterly irrefutable that even the very soldiers who are fighting this war are shamefully ignorant for daring to challenge his infallibility.

And Dan of Riehl World View says that the Press is at war. Dan, they've BEEN at war with us, ever since President Bush first ran for office. The only difference is that they're more open about it now.

And I think the last two stanzas of Kipling's "Tommy" seem fitting:

We aren't no thin red 'eroes, nor we aren't no blackguards too,
But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
An' if sometimes our conduck isn't all your fancy paints,
Why, single men in barricks don't grow into plaster saints;
While it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an` Tommy, fall be'ind,"
But it's " Please to walk in front, sir," when there's trouble in the wind
There's trouble in the wind, my boys, there's trouble in the wind,
O it's " Please to walk in front, sir," when there's trouble in the wind.

You talk o' better food for us, an' schools, an' fires, an' all:
We'll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
Don't mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
The Widow's Uniform is not the soldier-man's disgrace.
For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an` Chuck him out, the brute! "
But it's " Saviour of 'is country " when the guns begin to shoot;
An' it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' anything you please;
An 'Tommy ain't a bloomin' fool - you bet that Tommy sees!

If I didn't see it with my own eyes.......

I wouldn't believe that anyone could be this much of a brainwashed Leftoid idiot.

The myth of the spat-upon Vietnam veteran refuses to die. Despite Jerry Lembcke's debunking book from 1998, Spitting Image: Myth, Memory, and the Legacy of Vietnam, and my best efforts to publicize his work, the press continues to repeat the fables as fact.

Every time someone calls for a "debate" with these bottomfeeders, I wonder just how much of a debate you can have with someone who is so lacking in reality that they say "Vietnam Vets didn't get spit on! It never happened! It's a myth!"

What. The. FUCK?!?!?!?!?!

I guess my father getting red paint poured on him was a myth too, huh? The accounts of all the vets who told of being spit on or worse is just a myth, right? How much of a leftist tool do you have to be in order to regurgitate this crap?

They aren't sane. They aren't rational. They are completely cut off from reality, and they do it to themselves.

"Too Important To Ignore"

I'll say! I mean, when an CBS correspondent is using al Qaeda propaganda videos and passing them off as "news", I'd say that is PRETTY FUCKING IMPORTANT TO KNOW!

CBS - working for the enemy since 1965!

Go for it Dave

Made you an admin, set the missus up as you please.

Why didn't I do this before?



See what you miss when you're out training to kill terrorist bastards? People start killing terrorist bastards!

The firefight raged for 24 hours. The Iraqi Ministry of Defense reported 263 militants killed and over 300 captured.


Found via KdT, who also has a letter to any troops who wonder about the amount of support back in the good 'ol US of A.



I am tired of the Democrats whining for months on T.V., in the New York Times, and in the House and Senate that we need more troops to win the war in Iraq, and then when my Commander in Chief plans to do just that, they say that is the wrong plan, it won’t work, and we need a “new direction.”

… I am tired of the decisions of Sergeants and Privates made in the heat of battle being scrutinized by lawyers who were not there and will never really know the state of mind of the young soldiers who were there and what is asked of them in order to survive.

… I am tired of Code Pink, Daily Kos, Al-Jazzera, CNN, Reuters, the Associated Press, ABC, NBC, CBS, the ACLU, and CAIR thinking that they somehow get to have a vote in how we blast, shoot and kill these animals who would seek to subdue us and destroy us.

… It is only possible to defeat an enemy who kills indiscriminately by utterly destroying him. He cannot be made to yield or surrender. He will fight to the death by the hundreds to kill only one or two of us.

… So let’s get it done. Until the fight is won and there is no more fight left.

Let me simply say that I agree with this troop.

Another Lie, Exposed Yet Again

"Oh, but it's patriotic to dissent!"

Sometimes, yes. Well reasoned debate is always welcome. But let's be blunt, shall we? The Left has not engaged in well reasoned debate ever since the 1950's.

So to all those Leftoids screaming about dissent being patriotic, I have no problem in responding "You're full of crap".

Readers of this blog will remember the name Joshua Sparling. In December 2005, the Iraq war veteran received a disgusting, anti-war death wish card while being treated at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. for injuries from a bomb explosion in Ramadi. Last month, his right leg was amputated.

And this weekend, while participating in a counter-protest against the moonbat convergence, he was spit at by anti-war demonstrators.

We haven't seen any patriotic dissent from the Left over the Iraq War. They haven't been patriotic since the Korean War, and the Viet Nam War showed just how far the rot of communism and anti-Americanism had penetrated the Democrat Party. Today? It's rotten to the core. There isn't a single part of the Left that's worth more than a mousefart.

Found via Cold Fury, who has additional commentary that I wholeheartedly agree with.

Now watch as the lunatics and their supposedly more reasonable supporters among the “reality”-based try to claim it never happened - or if it did, it didn’t mean what it obviously does. And watch as the MSM tries to cover for their partners in anti-patriotic crime, by throwing a blanket over this potential brush-fire of a story completely. If real Americans begin to get wind of this sort of thing happening again, no Lefty fuckwit in the country will be completely safe from violent retribution. As ambivalent as they may be about Bush’s handling of the war, I don’t think Americans suffer from any such irresolution over whether they want to see a repeat of the degradation of the 60’s era, when the Left snatched a wartime defeat from the jaws of victory, and dragged American honor, strength, and prestige through the mud. They got away with it once; they won’t again.

And honestly? I can’t say I have much of a problem with that. It’s a sad, tragic pass we’ve been brought to by these peurile simpletons, but here we are just the same. Those of us who are saddened by the displacement of the social contract by the unenlightened and boundless self-regard of the Petulant Left have some decidedly unpleasant realities to face up to here.

Mark my words: it’s going to get worse.


Well, as you can see

The Raging Mrs. decided to post a lil bit. Yannow, every now and then she just feels the urge to post, and does so under my name. We always make sure people know that it's her doing it.

Hell, Tim..... if you and TVE are going to be on extended vacation for a while longer, perhaps we should set her up with an account?

Oh, how public education and government fail us (A post by the Raging Mrs.)

Being in Puerto Rico is quite the experience. We have had the opportunity to work get to know a lot of federal employees, and people from other branches of the service. We have also had the opportunity to live inside of another culture, with all the good, bad, and ugly that entails(lots of bad and ugly). I think it is great that we have this community. Unfortunately the federal government and military alike can not figure out whether this is Overseas or USA. I not only say this because of my experiences, but, some of the abhorrent stories I have been told. My favorite being that someone was told to Drive their car to their next post. OK folks, lets get real. To start, Puerto Rico is a little island in the middle of the Caribbean. It may be a territory of the USA, but it is definitely a foreign county. In many ways I feel that the only the Puerto Rico has in common with the USA, is the US Dollar. Many of us were told (by native Puerto Ricans) that almost everyone here speaks English. That is only true if you consider Spanglish as English, even in the military:) The health care is so bad that I base my activities around the idea that my worst nightmare is to end up in an E-room here. Surgeries and most doctors appointments are done on a first come first serve bases. Traffic, maybe NewYork City is worse. Many of the people on a one-on-one basis are very nice. As a whole they are thoughtless, self centered and downright rude. With all of that said, I will say there are some beautiful beaches and other landmarks and they cook Pig better than anywhere. If you ever have the opportunity to come here, unless you have a personal friend, or stay at a resort and only use the resorts tours, don't!!! I have seen probably half of the families that come here leave with in six months. The few of us that do stay, are just that determined.

I really wish the government would come to the same realization that we have, and act accordingly, before they tell someone else to drive to their next assignment.

Oh dear lord!

This man was the Democrat American communist Party nominee for the Presidential election!

I can't... I mean, I just can't.... IMAGINE what the fuck is going on. Are we in a Bizzaro World? Have we crossed over into another dimension and someone forgot to tell me?

“So we have a crisis of confidence in the Middle East — in the world, really. I’ve never seen our country as isolated, as much as a sort of international pariah for a number of reasons as it is today.”…

Kerry criticized what he called the “unfortunate habit” of Americans to see the world “exclusively through an American lens.”

*blink* *blink*

How the..... I mean, really, just what the fu.....


Is this what America has come to? Our elected "representatives" giving a verbal blowjob to a theocrat who would just as soon see our entire country turned into a mushroom cloud rather than shake our hand?

Does anyone else feel like we've been tied to a railroad and the train is coming around the bend? Cause JEEBUS, I can't believe the crap I'm seeing today. I know that John F'n Kerry has a history of whoring himself out to America's enemies, but to be so blatant about it?

Dear lord help us all.

Ya don't say!

You mean the environmental movement is full of neo-socialist hypocritical snotwads who care more about their supposed ideals than the actual reality of the places they protest for?

No way!

Found at AOSHQ, who also has a letter from a soldier that you NEED TO READ.

Today the mission continues, it never stops. We have service scheduled in about an hour which I know will be very difficult to attend, but necessary so that we can honor them and begin to heal. The mission is first, for the defense of our country, for you and for ourselves we will persevere.

Know this, our soldiers will not quit. We win every battle, we hold any piece of ground that we want to take.
Do not listen to those in Washington who influence events by dishonesty, manipulation and greed. Listen to your hearts and know that America is a winner. We will not accept defeat.
Don't be fooled by the news media who so dishonorably portrays one side of the story for gain and sensationalism. We are not losing, we are not running, the enemy is reeling and is scared.

Washington politicians lie for political gain, while our troops continue to kick ass and take names.

Just like normal.

UPDATE!: WAITAMINNIT! You mean to tell me that Socialists are nothing more than hypocritical shitweasels who do not practice what they preach and care more about their own comfort than the people they claim to support?

No way!
