deuddersun contemplating his next post!
Well, my little self-imposed holiday is about to come to an end. Back to work next Wednesday! So, instead of just laying around, uh, contemplating, I decided to update my links.
First is a fellow Marine who, although no longer allowed to use power tools, still wields a mighty pen! With a love of boobies of all shapes, ages and sizes and an admirable appreciation for Jerry Lee Lewis, his blog is an enjoyable daily read for me as well as an educational experience. With that being said I give you The Moderate Man!
Right wingers beware! The man behind the blog is a United States Marine Corps Combat Vet who will rip off your head and shit down your neck!
Next is Mccs 1977. I am not as familiar with this site as I am of The Moderate Man. I came across it from a comment posted here under my tribute to Paul Gill. The site intrigued me, so I am including it.
The last two for today are Fixer & Gordon and The Alternate Brain, both good reads. Do yourself a favor and give them a look. You won't be sorry.
Well, that about sums it up. Gotta go finish working on my soil pipe so I can hit my other pipe and get back to contemplating before the cruel interruption of "work" invades my otherwise tranquill lifestyle again.
Pax tibi and Semper Fi!

VFW member at a speech given by George W. Bush to the Veterans of Foreign Wars expresses his opinion of what he is hearing from the Commander In Chief.
In a recent post at Any Which Way, mybrother, scroff, featured a new Televison Ad attacking Sen. George Allen, Republican, of Virginia, by a new Left-leaning Veterans group, VoteVets.org.
The ad claims that Sen. Allen voted against giving our troops in Iraq the new body armor and states that our troops were given Viet Nam Era body armor instead. This point is driven home graphically when two sets of body armor, one, supposedly from the Viet Nam era and the other, modern, are shot with an AK-47 at a range of about 50 feet. When the armor is ripped open, the mannequin with the old body armor shows three bullet wounds, the modern armor does not, thus implying that Sen. Allen is somehow responsible for American casualties in Iraq. Great ad.
Except for one thing - it isn't true.
In an update, featured prominently on the Front Page of Any Which Way, scroff exposes this ad and expresses his disgust at the tactics being employed in it. Why is this important?
The most valuable weapon we have against the Neo-cons is the truth. Unlike most on the Right, who will vehemently defend the lies being handed them by our current administration, in spite of hard facts to the contrary, we on the Left must surely take the higher ground. Not only must we expose the lies of this administration and it's supporters, it is our duty to ensure that what we say and do is right and true.
Good job, Bro.
Let's all work to make sure no one shows up at one of our events wearing "Bullshit Protectors"!
Let's keep the Left Right!
Never one to leave any stone unturned, scroff wrote to VoteVets.org, questioning the veracity of their ad. Seems they were right all along! I have to wonder how many Right-leaning bloggers would go through all this trouble to verify a post!
Anyway, kudos to scroff! For the Whole story, click on the link below!
Now that's what I call keeping the Left, Right!
For those of you who have been following this here, (that would be you Fred), there is a further update. Media Matters has weighed in on the side of VoteVets.org. You can find their investigation and conclusion through the link above, under UPDATE.
