ABC’s Last Resort…Huh?
Last Resport is another ABC series that tries to drag out viewer attention for a season of shows and is of course, based in Hawaii. I am beginning to wonder if they have a contract with the state. The premise is interesting: a nuclear ballistic missile submarine is given the order to fire its payload into Pakistan and then denies the order. The sub is attacked, | Read More »
Ron Paul’s Lack of Military Support
I have long been tired of the Paulbot meme that he receives most of the support among military affiliated donators. Looking at the despicable display of an Army Reserve Soldier at the Ron Paul rally in Iowa was the last straw for me. It was disgraceful to the uniform and embarrassing to me a service member. First off Iowa and New Hampshire lack a large | Read More »
Egypt? Muslim Brotherhood? Eh, So What?
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness – Declaration of Independence These words mean a lot to | Read More »
Stimulus in Action…and Waste
This has bothered the hell out of me since I’ve been back. Day and night even. But now more so because its 20 minutes past midnight and this place is lit up like a Christmas tree. I opposed the very idea of a “stimulus” because I’ve been on the receiving end of a federal pay check for ten years now. Now the liberals and some | Read More »
Why Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Is Not About the Military
No secret, I’m in the US Army and normally I leave the military related posts to the Wordpress blog. But this is not just about the military. The failure of Harry Reid to get the Defense budget for 2011 past a procedural blockade succeed in holding the firewall against a massive push at social engineering by proxy. So for the rest of this blog, lets | Read More »
Left Falling In Line With Reid
Shocker, I know. I was stoked to see the Defense budget fail the cloture vote because I oppose the attaching bills to others that have nothing to do with one another. This was doubly disturbing because it attached two hotly contested issues to the only Constitutionally mandated federal department. You know by now that DADT and the DREAM Act were attached to the Department of | Read More »
Progressives? What Are You Progressing Towards?
I have asked this question for years. First it was just the musings of a grumpy Soldier and then out loud on Twitter and to my rather disturbed leftist “friends”. There is a lot to be said about the progressive movement and how it affects our nation and its history. We have a lot to “thank” the Progressives for: Prohibition, AFL-CIO, The New Deal, Great | Read More »
Closing GTMO and Opening Abortion Clinics
That is the slogan I created yesterday on Twitter to show the extremes the new Obama administration is going to placate its liberal base. By in large he campaigned on a few themes and most of those of course wound up being centrist and acting as a “uniter”. I am not naieve enough to think that he’d actually govern that way but its something to | Read More »
Georgia Teachers Union Asks for Bailout
On Thursday, the Georgia Association of Educators requested that the incoming Obama administration provide a bailout for the Georgia public school system. There isn’t much to this other than to say that this is obviously the tip of the iceberg. The UAW lead this charge with the $17billion being asked from Congress that was denied by the Senate (thank God) and then the President went | Read More »
Iraq is Sovereign, The War Is Over
The Status of Forces Agreement between the Republic of Iraq and the United States of America was signed November 17, 2008. The war is over and we will leave Iraq proper within three years time of this agreement, provided no amendments to the SOFA are made. The SOFA reads just like the one between the Republic of Korea and the USA reads, it establishes the | Read More »
