I leave you with this and Best Wishes for a Good Night.
Watch this for a moment,
I love this girl,
well, I love what she does,
no, I love her.
Can that be right?
Take this to bed with you tonight and love your woman like it was the first time.

A Young Marine Speaks Out
by Philip Martin
I'm sick and tired of this patriotic, nationalistic and fascist crap.
I stood through a memorial service today for a young Marine that was
killed in Iraq back in April.
During this memorial a number of people
spoke about the guy and about his sacrifice for the country.
How do you justify 'sacrificing' your life for a war which is not only
illegal, but is being prosecuted to the extent where the only thing
keeping us there is one man's power, and his ego."
That's the truth, can you handle it?
White House Debating New Iraq Strategies - NEWS - Comcast.net:
"White House Debating New Iraq Strategies
By JENNIFER LOVEN, Associated Press Writer
1 hour ago
WASHINGTON - In a rush to chart a new course for the Iraq war, President Bush's national security team is debating whether additional troops are needed to secure Baghdad _ a short-term force increase that could be made up of all Americans, a combination of U.S. and Iraqi forces, or all Iraqis, a senior administration official said Saturday."
Get a clue you dumbass piece of shit!
If I had five minutes alone with you I would teach you the meaning of "War"...
Talked to the Bulldog yesterday! No, he ain't dead. Not even badly bleedin'! Just needed a little R&R is all!
I met Bulldog last year when his company sent him to that Den of Iniquity, New York City! Hooked up with him and some co-workers of his and went on a mission! Hogs & Heifer's, The Red Rock West Saloon, and a few other places of ill repute will never be the same! (Coyote Ugly aside, Hogs is the original! I have gotten drunk with Harrison Ford there and watched Julia Roberts dance on the bar and strip off her bra to hang it on the Honored Antlers behind the bar.)
Now Bulldog informs me that he will be traveling East once more, in April.
New York City, Stand the fuck by!
We also talked about the possibilty of getting the entire Rogues Gallery together at someplace sometime. Don't know if it will ever happen but I will say this, if it does, where-ever it does, batten down the hatches and get yer wimin-folk off the streets! This group makes "The Wild bunch" look like Boy Scouts!
Okay, 'Dog, get back to yer keyboard and get busy! Chop-chop!
McKinney Introduces Bill to Impeach Bush - NEWS - Comcast.net:
"WASHINGTON - In what was likely her final legislative act in Congress, outgoing Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney introduced a bill Friday to impeach President Bush.
The legislation has no chance of passing and serves as a symbolic parting shot not only at Bush but also at Democratic leaders. Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has made clear that she will not entertain proposals to sanction Bush and has warned the liberal wing of her party against making political hay of impeachment." - By BEN EVANS, Associated Press Writer
Hello? Ms. Pelosi? Are you listening? We want him impeached! Then Indicted! Then Imprisoned! Get it?
The only rationale I can come up with for not impeaching the bastard is the grim fact that Dick Cheney would become the President!
I certainly hope Ms. Pelosi isn't as reticent about investigating this corrupt administration and bringing the Bush Family Crime Cartel to justice.
Look at it this way, Nancy, with Bush & Cheney out of the way, you become the President!
Go for it Girlfriend!

In her own words:
I study and teach the classics to a bunch of bored undergraduates. I used to teach in the Chicago Public Schools; I'm from there. I don't miss the gig at all, but there is great novel material in those environments. I write fiction, poetry and analytical articles. Right now I am fascinated by the Vietnam War, the Southern Gothic, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Augustine, Dante, Chicago White Sox, the mysteries of God, recovery from the jaws of despair and the end of the world.
When I first started this blog, it was populated mostly by pissed off Veterans, the majority being Marines, like myself. In order to try and see things from the Right's point of view, I linked to some Right-wing blogs that were pretty far out on the fringe. This, I thought, was diversity. I've since realized that I will never see things from the Right's point of view simply because I can't get my head that far up my ass.
Recently I have sought diversification again. I have added other, gentler Veterans who have beaten their demons, yet still carry on the fight to save our great nation, like Spadoman, at Round Circle and still others, non-Veterans, who's sites appealed to me, like Pablo, at Ritmo Latino.
Now, I offer you Enemy of the Republic, at Cruel Virgin.
Enemy of the Republic deals mostly with life's daily issues, like friendship and work and what folks define as wierd. I think you'll enjoy her. Besides, being from Philly she's a homie.
Just two things though...
In spite of the blog's name, the young lady is sensitive, so be kind.
The young lady may have to acclimate herself to our particular style of blogging, though. The knuckle-up, down and dirty, no-holds barred statements of disgust and dismay at the current state of affairs in the United States usually found here and else-where by those of us in The Rogues Gallery.

An armed militiaman holds a rocket propelled grenade launcher in Ramadi, Iraq, Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2006. Ramadi, 70 miles west of Baghdad, is located in Anbar province, where many Sunni-Arab insurgent groups are based. It has been the scene of some of the fiercest fighting between U.S. forces and insurgents. (AP Photo)
CAIRO, Egypt - Private Saudi citizens are giving millions of dollars to Sunni insurgents in Iraq and much of the money is used to buy weapons, including shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles, according to key Iraqi officials and others familiar with the flow of cash. - By SALAH NASRAWI, Associated Press Writer
You have got to be Fucking kidding me?
The Saudi's? The Fucking Saudi's????? Our greatest Arab Ally in the "War On Terror"? The House of Saud???? Best Friends and socialite chums of the Fucking Bush Family?
Does this guy have a fucking clue about anything?
I am beside myself, I just can't find the words...
You'll have to read the article.
Saudis Reportedly Funding Iraqi Sunnis - NEWS - INTERNATIONAL - Comcast.net
But I'll tell you this! I'll tell you this. I expect an apology from every dumb ass sonofabitch who voted for this guy in '04! Everyone of you!
Not to me, but to the thousands of Americans who served in this bullshit war! To the thousand of Americans who died in support of Halliburton and KBR and... to the thousands more wounded or maimed!
Take your fucking flag decal and shove it up your right wing ass!
I've had it with this shit. Bring our troops home now. I could care less if the whole Middle-east went down the fucking shitter!
The Iraq Study Group has finally released it's findings, EIGHT MONTHS LATER!!!
And President Dipshit still doesn't get it! The article linked to below explains my distress and disgust with Fric & Frac, Bush and his Puppet, Tony Blair.
During the aforementioned eight fucking months, over 600 more Americans lost their lives while Politico's sought ways to "gracefully" end Bush's Folly. The Rogues Gallery ( a loose group of MilBloggers I belong to, headed up by Moderateman), could have come up with this shit in 8 fucking minutes!
How many more will die before the 79 recommendations are acted upon?
So, I'll ask again, am I the only one with a sense of urgency here?
Found this website thru the Comments Section at Moderateman!
Hailing from Ontario, Canada, Ritmo Latino reminds me of what we, here in the United States are fighting Bush and the Neo-cons for, home, hearth and family. Real Family Values!
Stop in and ease your troubled mind.

Brooklyn Sidewalk Caves In, Swallows Woman - NEWS - STRANGE - Comcast.net:
An un-named 64 year old woman was swallowed by a five foot deep sinkhole in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn!
Someone needs to tell her there are better ways to get away for the holidays!
Fortunately she was uninjured and even managed a chuckle after being rescued by New York's Bravest!
Marty! You're the Borough President, wassup widdis?
Seems the Moralists in Maine are unaware that "Butt" is English for "Barrel". English, that is, as in England. Fortunately, we live in Pennsylvania, so we could, if so inclined, actually taste Santa's Butt!
Now I haven't asked Mags if she'd like to put her lips to Santa's Butt, but as for me, I think I'll stay with the King, (no, not the King of England, the King of Beers), Budweiser! (Sneeringly referred to by some of my more sophisticated, read "snobbish", friends as Butt-wiper Beer.)
Seems I can't escape being the "butt" of the joke no matter what, so I'll leave it up to your good taste!
Oh, and did you notice that the importer is located in Belchertown? Too dam funny!
