Combat Action Badges (and stranger things)

This Guy has hit it right on the head!

Falls in line with a few of my other pet peeves:

Berets-Okay, we've had our fun, let's get back to a practical piece of equipment.

GWOTSM-I get a medal now for showing up? Thought that was the NDSM.

GITMO and the KORAN-these "detainees" get treated better than our Soldiers. Newsweek got people killed. Where is the MSM outrage?

Great Britain can't call a spade a spade-Not a huge issue in the scheme of things; you think PM Blair needs me to send him a copy of the "Who flew planes into the WTC" Multiple choice test?

Thank God they are liars

Seems the Taliban have been attempting a little "Liberal" PR campaign with regards to a Navy SEAL they claimed to have captured and beheaded.

My heart still goes out to that brave man and his mates who perished on that rescue mission.

God bless those who are engaging the enemy. Your efforts are not in vain.

Some days I feel I don't deserve to pull a paycheck from the same boss.

From the braintrust at

36 Senators Object to Gonzales' Confirmation as Attorney General

In what was originally expected to be an uncontroversial vote, 35 Democrats and 1 independent voted against the confirmation of Alberto Gonzales, raising pointed questions about his role laying the legal groundwork for the Abu Ghraib torture scandal. The dissenting votes Gonzales was confirmed by just 60-36 -- the second most "no" votes for any confirmed attorney general in history. (The first was Ashcroft.) MoveOn members played a major role in getting this on the radar, making it a referendum on torture and generating a real opposition.

I think it was due to the fact that he had those illegal immigrants watching his kids-No, wait, that was Clinton's FIRST nominee to AG. And his second. The third was a megalomaniacal she-beast who cut Lon Horiuchi loose to shoot an unarmed kid in the back and a woman holding a baby.

London Bombed!

Caught this whilst preparing for work this afternoon. Seems that our partners across the pond are not immune from the barbarism. It's fresh enough right now to not have the Bush bashers out blaming it on him. I know it will come as sure as I know my name.



Mine and my family's thoughts and prayers are with the victims and the leaders of that country.

France ummm....fought for something?

Quote from Jacques Chirac regarding their bid for the 2012 Olympic Games
(They lost, by the way.)
"You can put your trust and faith in France, you can trust the French, you can trust us."

Dammit Jacques, you made my coffee come out of my nose!

Burning my Flag

Seems to me that the folks who choose to burn the flag have it all wrong.
Let me start by saying that I think I am as American as they come. Patriotic, serving in the Military, love the occasional hot dog and apple pie. That being said, here comes the shocker: I think you should be allowed to burn as many American flags as you wish!

BUT...(and as you will see, there will almost ALWAYS be a but)

You need to realize EXACTLY what it means to burn the flag (as an American).

My flag is a symbol of my Nation. As such, the way you (dis)respect the flag HAS to be a direct reflection of the way you feel about America. If you are truly so distraught over the way the Country is going, if you TRULY feel that you see the flag as a representative of the Country, and if you think that things have reached a point where you have to destroy the Country in effigy, burn away!

Then leave.

Yep, get out. If this Country holds nothing for you, leave. Go somewhere else. Find a Country that is more in line with your way of thinking.

If you are not willing to do this, if you want to both burn and hide behind my flag, you are just a bratty child looking for attention.

And I will have to spank you.
