Honor The Warrior...

Underpaid, oversexed, baby-faced professional Killer

-from a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt

A good blog-buddy, Mary, from Get Your Own, posed this: "
Too often I hear that the American Soldiers chose to fight this war. Sometimes this is in the instance of making the point that the Iraqi's didn't choose it. That they are losing their lives not by choice. Make no mistake I think all the loss of life during this or any war is tragic. Not just American. It is all unjust. Sometimes the statement is made because of the persons politics and they are defending their party.

Am I the only one who regrets more than a few decisions made at that age? I wish at that age that I had seen the limitless possibilities and choices that lay at my feet. I didn't. Was I so different from others. I'm 44 and just started figuring out that I'm not invincible. I only recently got a hold on who I am. I hope someday that every choice I make is the correct one."

I tried to post what I thought was a reasonable explanation of why some of our troops seem to be "embracing" this war. To wit: "What folks who have never served don't understand is that while you may have been fooled into joining or fighting, the reason you stay is for your Brother & Sister Warriors. It becomes very personal very quickly, gone are the ideals, survival is utmost and dependent on your Comrades, thus loyalties are forged that can never be broken or understood by those who have never made them.

Those that are fighting now are fighting for each other, not oil, global domination or George Bush. Their loyalty to each other dictates that they stay with each other until they can all come home together."

War is what we train our young people in the military for. It is their job and they are very good at it. You have to understand that they are there doing their jobs, it is not their job to examine morality or the whys or wherefores of their situation. They are doing what we, as a Nation, asked them to do, what we trained them to do, as such, they themselves are blameless. They are the weapon, not the wielder. In order to maintain their own sanity they must feel the way they do. Conscience is for us, here at home. They cannot afford one on the battlefield. So if your conscience is bothering you, do your part and sheath the sword.



This is my rifle.

There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

My rifle without me is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.
I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me.

I will...

My rifle and myself know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our bursts, nor the smoke we make. We know it is the hits that count.

We will hit...

My rifle is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories, its sights, and its barrel. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage. I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other.

We will...

Before God I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy,

but PEACE!

Lately it has begun to look as if Bush will win again. I fear the Democrats are backing down. We elected them to end this war and sheath the sword. More and more, as time goes on, it begins to look as if they will cave in to Bush and give him what he wants, a war budget with no strings attached. I have to agree with Pat Buchanan on this, if the Democrats are so determined to end this war, why don't they just cut off the funding?

They haven't because they are whistling past the graveyard. They haven't heard from us. It's time to send them a message again.

If you truly oppose this war, write, call, phone and e-mail your elected Representatives! Let them know we haven't forgotten why we put them there in the first place. Let them know they won't be there long if they fail to do what we put them there to do. Do it today!

Don't blame the sword for the actions of the wielder! Ultimately we are the wielder and it is up to us to sheath the sword.

Below is a video from Mike The Marine at From The Halls To The Shores. Mike leans Right, but since he is an Active Duty Captain and a Marine Pilot, over in the Sandbox, he has Carte Blanche with me. As you watch this video, remember, I want these guys to feel this way - cocky, strong and invincible! The day is coming when we will really need them.


Honor the Warrior!

Not the War.

Cho Seung-Hui - Inside The Mind Of A Madman

Below is a portion of the video from Cho Seung-Hui which the F.B.I. allowed the News outlets to release.
It is not complete. It really doesn't need to be. For someone who was described as so quiet and aloof he wouldn't even greet his fellow students, he sure had a lot to say.

I'm no shrink so I won't try to analyze this disturbed individual.
Why he did what he did is of no consequence to me. I only need to know that he did it. I also fear that his crime may be repeated, just as his actions seem to have been a copy-cat of the Columbine massacre, (he refers to the Columbine killers else-where in his ramblings).

Many are questioning how he was able to legally purchase the weapons he used.
He had a history of psychological problems. I am sure, however, that had he not been able to purchase firearms legally, he would have found them else-where, on a street corner or a burglary. Or perhaps he would have used the hammer he has been pictured brandishing with a snarl on his face. Or the knives he is pictured with. It really doesn't matter what he used, no-one should have to face an armed madman with no means of defense! The man was bent on murder and mayhem, and the only thing that could have stopped him was what finally did - a bullet to his brain. It's a shame that ending came only after 32 of his fellow students were methodically and coldly murdered and dozens others wounded.

So what can we do? What are we to do when we are caught in a situation with a madman and there are no Police nearby to save us? What are we to do when we are mugged or raped? What are we to do when the small family grocery store we have worked all our lives for is robbed and we are threatened with death? A real and growing problem here in Philadelphia is "Home Invasions". Lord knows the Police can't be everywhere at all times. So what can we do?

Arm ourselves.

If the Civil Authorities are incapable of protecting us then we must be willing to defend ourselves, our homes and our loved ones. The consequences of our failure to do so have been clearly demonstrated at Virginia Tech.

There are so many illegal firearms "on the streets" of this country that we will never be able to account for them all. Tougher laws will not remove them. Criminals and madmen have no respect for the law and will use any means they can to acquire what ever they need to carry out their mayhem. Why should the rest of us be sitting ducks?

Law-abiding Americans must be allowed to defend themselves. Time and again, the Civil Authorities have proven their inability to protect us from the monsters among us. There's an old saying that I firmly believe in, "I'd rather be tried by a jury of 12 strangers than carried to my grave by 6 of my friends".

This tragedy seems unpreventable. For sure, his first victims, who were probably taken by surprise, were doomed in any event. Many lives could have been saved later, however, as he stalked through the halls dispensing his hatred in 9mm packages, if someone, other than himself, had been able to put a bullet in his brain. Denying this is like closing your eyes and hoping the monster isn't there anymore, and then never being able to open your eyes again.

Should this ever happen to daMagster or me, I can assure you, we will be ready.

Will you?

Jeff Foxworthy

My whole career can be summed up with 'Ignorance is bliss.' When you do not know better, you do not really worry about failing.
Jeff Foxworthy

Stupid Fuck Of The Day

...goes to self-proclaimed "Redneck", Jeff Foxworthy, who at last night's Country Music Television Awards Show took the opportunity to slam The Dixie Chicks.

The Chicks were nominated in two categories and when commenting on their losses, Foxworthy said, "I understand the songs on that album are great, but I listen to country radio so I haven't heard them yet."

Fair enough, but what most media outlets have neglected to do is include Foxworthy's entire quote which was met with a comination of cheers and jeers, with the cheers, one must assume, coming from like-minded "rednecks".

From UGO ActressArchives:

The most controversial figures in country in the last few years and winners of a handful of Grammys, The Dixie Chicks were finalists for Video of the Year and Group Video of the Year, but they didn't win an award and were the brunt of jokes by host Jeff Foxworthy, who cracked, "I understand the songs on that album are great, but I listen to country radio so I haven't heard them yet." Foxworthy also cracked on the title of The Dixie Chicks' "Not Ready to Make Nice," joking that he wasn't ready to care, which was greeted by a combination of applause and boos. The country music scene still isn't sure how to feel about The Dixie Chicks.

The actual quote, which I heard this morning on the Howard Stern Show, is almost impossible to find. If you hear it, you can hear the derision Foxworthy feels for his "fellow" Country Stars, although Foxworthy couldn't be Found-worthy to carry their guitar cases. I guess the "main stream media" doesn't want to show real "rednecks" for the taste-less, class-less, clue-less losers they really are.

So from all of us who love Country music and Freedom Of Speech, to all you "real rednecks", go fuck yourselves. We don't need you.

And now, The Dixie Chicks!

You Go Chicks!!!


PS: Scroff you were right!


Thanks to Crazy Dave:

The Youtube vid isn't great, but there's also an entertaining vid of Ray Wylie explaining the song's genesis.

Massacre At Virginia Tech

Va. Tech Gunman Was Student From S.Korea
By ADAM GELLER, AP National Writer

58 minutes ago

BLACKSBURG, Va. - A Virginia Tech senior from South Korea was behind the massacre of at least 30 people locked inside a campus building in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern U.S. history, the university said Tuesday.

The Virginia Tech Police Department identified him as Cho Seung-Hui, 23, a senior in the English department.

Full Story

We may never know what drove a 23 year old man over the edge of sanity and into the depths of madness yesterday, when he calmly murdered 32 of his fellow students and wounded dozens more, stopping only when he ended his own life with a bullet to his head.

Many others, far more eloquent than me, will eulogize those lost. Others still, will dig deep to find out what drove Cho Seung-Hui to commit the worst mass murder in the history of the United States. Yet others will argue the 2nd Amendment and Virginia's firearm laws. I wish to cast this in a different perspective.

First, let me clearly state that I in no way wish to minimize this horrific event or diminish it's importance to our national consciousness. Nor do I wish to offend the victims or their grieving families, rather, I wish to put a little perspective on this tragedy, for there are those in the world who experience this everyday.

Imagine that.

Imagine losing 30 American lives each and every day!
How long do you think we, as a society, would tolerate that?

What if there were, on average, 94 Americans killed each and every day?

That's how many Iraqi's were killed on average, per day in 2006!

And for those of you who only think American lives count, consider this, in March of this year alone we lost 81 Americans in Iraq!

This month's total so far is a "mere" 62!

And one more reason for moderate Republicans to abandon the Bush Administration and it's "Open Door Borders Policy" is the fact that, on average, 12 Americans a day are murdered by "illegal aliens"! Those people would still be alive today if our Government would stop kow-towing to Corporations seeking "cheap" labor and enforce our immigration laws!

Seems to me this "isolated incident" isn't so "isolated" after all.

Just something to think about.

`Monica Goodling-Today's "Stupid Fuck Of The Day"

I am pleased to announce that Monday's "Stupid Fuck Of The Day" is none other than Regent trained Monica Goodling, formerly the third most powerful person in the United States Department of Justice!


I am simply astounded by her impeccable credentials! This photo is from Monica's webpage at Regents University. For someone who held such a high position, she really managed to fly under the radar! Current photos are extremely rare. Dam shame her mind isn't as well formed as her legs!

Well, no matter. To find out why Ms. Goodling "won" this "Award", play the youtube clip below! (It also explains a lot more about who's running our country and why we're in the shithole we're in!)
