Short Stuff


If you enjoy it, let me know!


So, We Need Guidance? – From the Whitehouse about how to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 911?



Who Wants to "Normalize" Pedophilia? – Speaks for itself.



Nice Video – Worth the watch!



Treatment For PTSD – Interesting article about a most troubling subject and effective treatment that doesn’t come from a medicine bottle!



Role Reversal? – Well, that’s the title of the article but if you want to get spitting mad, just read it.  It’s all about how Latin America is simultaneously taunting, lecturing, and worrying about the United States’ debt crisis.  Fodder for a future article.



Heirs Lose Fight – to keep what was rightfully theirs!  Guess who won that fight?  Why, the government, of course!  This should have never seen the inside of a courtroom!



One Example Of a REAL Hidden Tax – Read up Alabamians!  Sad part is that you could probably find many examples of similar taxation in all states!



What In The World Are they Spraying? – Feature length documentary – very well done!


White House Snubbed Fraud Fighting Offer  - From October of last year, must watch video.



How Free Is Your State? – Very interesting and pretty in-depth study (and attempt to measure) freedom from several considerations.  The rankings here have individual links to the analysis on each state that is quite useful.



Show Your Thanks – by clicking this link and watching a 2 minute video that is a trailer for a movie to honor WWII vets.  Excellent!  Thanks, Ben!



In God We Trust – Original music video.



 In God We Still Trust – Diamond Rio’s classic.



Memorial Day - Arlington – Trace Atkins sings another classic.



Short, Telling Video – Does this define a “moderate” Muslim view as expressed by an American college student? 



What Happens – To Conservatives In College?  Take the time for this clip from a recent Glenn Beck program. 



We're All Communists Now Part 2 – Ellis Washington continues his succinct explanation of an all to often ignored truth.  And Part 3 rounds it all out.  As I said before, read it and weep!   



Wally and the Beav – Join the Thought Police, by Jack Cashill, is an excellent expose of the true racists in our society.  (Well, those pasty white ones anyway.)  The man does have a way with words!



We're All Communists Now – Hard hitting article by Ellis Washington – read it and weep!



The Obama Lie... – that drove the “birther” movement, by Jack Cashill, is well worth reading and following it up with reading the comments.  Please, conservatives, stop joining the chorus of liberals singing the tired old song, “Move Along Now – There Is Nothing To See Here!”



Surviving a Skunking – Okay, this is one of those lighthearted yet informative articles that is just too fascinating.  After all, skunks are everywhere!



 Excellent Video Presentation – Delving more deeply than most into Obama’s background.  Real journalism for those who no longer recognize it.



Heart Warming – Well written article about a Mississippi town that foiled the hate filled Westboro Baptist plans to crash another military funeral.



A Good Study In Real Fed Justice – Don’t skip the comments on this article.  Not everyone is dumb after all!



Barry and Sarah – Another cute, short video in puppet format.  Good for a laugh and a good explanation about Libya!



 Bad Moon – from Creedence Clearwater Revival, an old sixties band, (I’m an old sixties chick remember) ponder the words and simplicity of this.  One of the few really successful (if only temporarily) all-American bands of that particular time, this one has an interesting history.  What was happening back then, do you think, that might have spawned this song?  Second question:  could it have been written yesterday or even tomorrow with the very same validity? 



Gun Running – or just presidential ignorance?  This particular link provides a remarkable quote by our president.  In his effort to back away from any knowledge or responsibility for this scandalous story, he says, in effect that ‘it’s a pretty big government with a lot of moving parts.’  Truer words were never spoken – but, just who is in the driver’s seat, hmmmmm?



War On Women – or more accurately, war on common decency?  Like I have said before, truly strong women scare the snot out of feminists and their foolish male counterparts.  ‘Nuff said.



Confined In a Closet? – This from a British news organization – (ours are evidently spread to thin to get it out there) a local reporter barred from the goodies at VP’s fundraiser.  Freedom of the press is barely alive and gasping!



Allen West Answers a Question – in the most honest and succinct way this question can be answered.  This must be understood. And thank God for warriors like this newly elected Congressman!



Famous Speech – from Ronald Reagan’s 1964 GOP address in support of Barry Goldwater for president.  Entitled “A Time For Choosing” this speech will always be relevant to Americans who know their history.



Must Watch Video – of Reagan’s 1981 Inaugural address.  Nothing could be more relevant to our current situation. 



Constitutional Ignorance – This article paints an embarrassing picture of elected officials.  Contained within is a link to the test that too many have failed!



 Understanding the Debt Ceiling – Just one more important thing ignored this week after that horrific individual shot up Tucson and sent the media further away from their real duties.



More Unique Christmas Music – Enjoy!



Two Californias – Lengthy article worth the read by Victor Davis Hanson.  For those of us who know and have lived California, this is a real thought provoker!  Thanks, Lewie!



Uplifting Video – It is Christmas time, folks, so watch and be uplifted!



Personal Report From San Diego – The “Don’t Touch My Junk” guy.



Can't Get Enough Of This Guy – Boykin again on why the Ft. Hood Massacre occurred. 



Lt. Gen. Boykin Discusses Marxism – Short video of retired expert on a subject everyone should be aware of.  Take time to view the other videos available at this link also.



A Most Thoughtful Article – by Dennis Prager on voting for party as opposed to individual.  Read this one with an open mind!



The Keynesian Video – Okay, you may perceive this as either hilarious or very sad and telling of ignorance in America today.  It’s short – watch it!



This Is America – Video of “Challenger” – a very special bald eagle!



Live and Learn? – this WND article contains a short video depicting British humor?  You need to watch it to be adequately disgusted!  Al Gore must be so proud!  Still “undecided” about climate change?



Shariah the Threat To America – this document should be read and understood by every thinking person in this country.  Take the time for it or ignore it at your own peril.



Fall In Love with America Again – this is one of the most worthy undertakings I have heard about recently.  The link will take you to a World Net Daily headline article about this project conceived by professional marketers.  Will it be exploited by some?  Sure.  That’s a given.  But this idea needs a full exploration by as many Americans as possible.  Step up and do your homework, America!



 Obama and G.W. – Give a young person who has grown up mostly in the computer age some meager tools and a short period of time – along with a website that allows personal expression, and here’s what you may get.  My daughter received this link: The Real Doctor, which is hilarious in its own right, and proceeded to produce her own.  She has worked as a veterinary technician for almost 20 years.  Enjoy these clips!  Thanks, Heather!



Conservative Ideas Forbidden? – On liberal university and college campuses – you betcha!  Makes no difference whether they are public institutions or not.  Still think kids get a well-rounded education these days?



Take the Time – to watch this piece of video as Glenn Beck explains the “line crossed” in the controversial Ground Zero Mosque proposal.



The Dark Side Of Illegal Immigration – Take the time for this page, and you may come away far more thoughtful on this subject.



Another Problem In Europe – Ethnic cleansing in Kosovo.  Paul Polansky has worked tirelessly for years on behalf of the Roma (Gypsy) people and their children.  In the words of a dear friend, “They have suffered mightily and for no other reason than their nationality.  It has got to stop!”  This is a problem with a solution.  Click the link.



Well Done, Must Watch Video – on the effects of the Gulf Disaster.  Where is the “transparency” in a gag order?



Atheists Illustrate Whole New Meaning to “God fearing” with this symbolic idiocy!  Just when you think you’ve heard it all!



Radical Islam Linked To Terror? Really??? – Wow!  Now that’s a real head shaker!



Which Came First? – Okay, folks, I can’t make this stuff up!  As the article puts it, “this case has finally been cracked” or something like that.  Now those super smart scientists can really learn a thing or two from this brilliant discovery!



Sad But Informative – must watch video of a recent Jay Leno “jaywalking” segment about Independence Day!  It is really hard to see the humor in this one!!!



I Am America – by Krista Branch – worth a listen, folks.



Ground Zero Mosque Video – Good commentary on this subject!



Must Watch Video – Capt. Pete Hegseth on Elana Kagan.  Great Stuff!



An American Child – Music to heal the soul on this Independence Day!  An oldie but goodie from Phil Vassar.



Short Video of the best explanation of the Gulf Oil Spill and what’s been done about it you are likely to see.  “The government that governs least, governs best.”



Here's Help - No Thanks – The Dutch offered help early in the oil spill, but it was declined?  Wow!  Where’s the outrage all you liberal, econuts?



Warning Label On Historical Documents – Okay, I hope you have all read “Survival” to your left – the latest parenting article.  If you still think that children are not being indoctrinated instead of educated, jot me off a quick note with your reasoning – or lack thereof!



Do You Know Who Is Teaching Your Kids? – and more important, what they are learning?  See the above entry too.



You can check this article and video out – dealing with bioremediation, one proposal to deal with oil spill cleanup that hasn’t had a lot of press.  Also here’s Another Article On the Ball, asking the questions and getting some answers. 



Why Is America So Successful? – by John Stossel, a short, concise answer that everyone needs to read and believe in.  Too bad our current crop of “leaders” haven’t the common sense to figure this one out!



Beck On War and the Military – interesting piece of video from a very interesting and controversial guy.



Listen To Michael Savage make some excellent points.  He is number 4 in popularity nationwide as a radio talk host.  He has been called every name in the book, and no one can agree with him all the time, but his intellect is top notch and he is right about this.  Listen with an open mind!



When Did We Cease To Be a Judeo-Christian nation?  Asks Randy Forbes on the floor of the House.  Short video well worth the watch!



Intelligence Information – from Retired Major General Paul E. Vallely.  View this video received from Mr. Veritas!



Ignorance Defined – in one call in to Michael Savage!  Listen up for an education about what’s wrong in America!



Mayor Richard Berry announced an end to Albuquerque “sanctuary city” policy.  Anyone arrested for serious crime in the city of Albuquerque will have immigration status checked.  That happened a little over a week ago.  The news today is that in one week’s time, ICE was called in on 31 arrests!  These are serious crimes, folks, including DWI to attempted murder and kidnapping.  Let’s not forget drug crimes also.  Maybe there is hope for this state! 



Facts and Figures On the Border Breach – Turning a blind eye to the illegal alien problem could be seen as treasonous!  So why do the administration and so many Democrat legislators give a standing O for the ridiculous rantings of foreign dictators?



Ray Stevens – tells it like it is once again!  Don’t miss this one!  “Come To the USA!”


While you’re at it, here’s another great one - Throw the Bums Out – (Ray’s been working overtime, bless his heart!)



 The Best Answer to the recent dressing down spewed by the president of Mexico comes from Congressman McClintock of California!  Watch this!  Source CNN via American Thinker.



Louie Giglio Video Clip – A currently circulating email doesn’t do the subject justice, but this video is well worth the watch to do just that.  If you do the research, you will find that the left is beside itself to minimize the effect of this Christian message.  This is an educational site, so allow yourself to be educated.



More Than One Rat – Okay, time to inject some humor.  Proof positive that there is more than one rat residing at the White House. 



See What REAL Mob Intimidation Looks Like – From Nina Easton’s report, and then read what SEIU member, Al Marshall had to say in defense of SEIU’s actions.  The comments at the bottom of this article make much more sense than what Mr. Marshall had say.  Bottom line – indoctrination, accusation, and intimidation are the most useful tools idiots can come up with.



New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie – If you haven’t seen this yet, don’t miss it!  Nuff said.



The Last Sitting President – Powerful video!  Judge for yourself.



Ever Use a Public Copy Machine? – Watch this short video and be truly amazed!  Thanks to Lewie for binging this one in.



Another Study said to reveal that babies are born with a knowledge of morality, supposedly proven by observing how six-month-old babies react to “good” and “bad” puppet figures.  There is so much wrong with this assertion I cannot begin to count the incidences of stupidity!  Just one more attempt to either shove parents out of the way or give them a free pass to ruin children!



Fascinating – Follow up to the story on Indian man who claims he is sustained by something other than food and water. 



Meet Paul Ryan – in this speech delivered on March 31, 2010 in Oklahoma City.  He is the Republican representative in the U.S. Congress from Wisconsin’s First District. 



Top Ten Disasters Of ObamaCare – as recently reported by the Heritage Foundation.  This is like finding the REAL test paper with the big, red F on it that Obama and Congress had hidden away in a messy locker while they told their lies!



More On the Bogus Resume of Barack Obama.  I pity anyone who still believes anything that comes out of his mouth.  But in that pity, I also deeply resent your ignorance!



Another Brave Soul – dares to ask, “WHERE’S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?”  This story is dated March 31st, so this issue isn’t likely to go away.



Read This Article from Joseph Farah and follow the link at the bottom for more information than you’ve probably ever had about survival from nuclear attack.  Then ask yourself this question: Why are we being left more defenseless than ever by a government that insists on disarming us more than ever?



You Picked a Fine Time – video worth the watch!  These young guys use a creative way to get their point across!



Jack Webb Tutors Obama – cute video!  Check out some of the other videos on this site also.



Politics1 Tracker – I’m adding this to the permanent links section as well.  This is perhaps the easiest to use site to keep track of your congressional districts and all state and federal government representatives – from the governor on down.  Familiarize yourself with it and use it often!  Candidates and even possible candidates are already listed there for this November election.  This is a huge site with a wealth of information!



More Truth Leaked – Healthcare legislation seeks to correct mal-distribution of income?  Voters feel the same way, buddy!  Those lawmakers are getting far too rich, don’t ya think?



Rush Warns – Love him or hate him, the guy is plugged in to veritas!  Read this article and look at the poll results, then listen up and look out!



Crime In a Western Democracy – Parental education vs. State education?  Is this where we are heading?  You betcha!



Official Results of Sunday’s “historic” vote on the healthcare bill.  You know what to do with it!



Genderless Person? – What’s the world coming to?  This is a real head shaker if you ask me! 



More Obama Mystery – How long will the MM continue to ignore the issue of fraud?  Are there really that many stupid people in the world that don’t care?



Whitehouse Crime? – Hmmmmm,  who’d a thunk?  Seems to me this Whitehouse is turning into one big, ongoing crime.  I’m just sayin’.



Abortion Aimed at Race? – I guess it just takes some folks longer to wake up than others.  But then, I think the whole human race ought to be on the endangered species list!



Marc Alan Lee – Last letter home from the first Navy SEAL killed in Iraq in August of 2006.  Remarkable young man, and his living challenge is being answered by his mother.



Debbie Lee, Marc’s mother wrote her own letter to the president.  In this open letter to Obama, she states the obvious with the authority that she has every right to.



More Sean Penn Idiocy – just in case you forget what our young soldiers are dying for, Mr. Penn, I would remind you that the First Amendment protects BOTH of our rights!



Last Ditch? – Mr. Obama, the only reason healthcare in this country is broken is because YOU and people like you have been tinkering with socialism for the last hundred years!  Is there anyone out there in the mainstream with enough brains to tell this arrogant fool and his cronies THAT?



The Census Is Getting Personal – Short, very informative video about the census.  Take the time to view it and take it seriously!



Cute Video – Victoria Jackson sings, There’s a Communist Living In the White House.



Obama Marching Us Toward Marshall Law – Powerful YouTube Video that many do not take seriously.  Everyone should ask the question, could it happen?



New Definition Of Republican Party – In the interest of fairness and balance I’m sure, Fox News continues to let Bob Beckel speak his mind.  Oh, by the way, that definition: the “party of birthers, baggers, and blowhards.”  How does that feel for a label?  I guess it’s better than being lying deceitful cheats who love to shred the Constitution, eh?



Conservatives Define "Fringe"? – The Tea Party Movement and CPAC have a problem.  How do you define fringe?  Okay, so we know that CPAC is “conservative” but I thought the “movement” did not want a defining cause to box them into any one party or issue.



Send In the Marines! – About lifting the ban on gays serving openly in the military.  Finally someone who is not living in a paradox!



Reality Meets Optimism – in this (CNN) poll yet!  Yes, the government’s broken, but we can still fix it!  Great!



Follow up On the Geert Wilders Story -  Yes, it’s Holland, but look how politicians act in the face of strong individuals trying to warn of very real danger.  If you are not taking notes on this, perhaps you should be.



1 Billion $ Price Tag – And we need this . . . why?  Another piece of the budget boondoggle.



Suicide Bombers Still Out There – “Believe it!”  The last sentence in this article says it all.  Do we really care “why” they are out there?  It’s all about killing in the name of their religion. 



On Verifying Citizenship – Talk about closing the barn door after the horse gets out!  Okay, so this is a “real” issue, but birthers are loons?  What is wrong with this picture?



Interview with Obama's Marxist buddy – Let this one sink in folks, from his Occidental College days.  He loved the Soviets!



State Representative Mike Pitts’  Bill Would Ban Federal Currency In SC – Will it come to this, folks?



I didn’t prepare any Short Stuff entries for this update, but I wish to make a comment on the recent Super Bowl, since I am a football fan.  Congrats to the Saints and the city of New Orleans!  Also, congrats to CBS for garnering the all time record audience for a Super Bowl or anything else for that matter!  Now, about the hype leading up to the television presentation of the super Bowl – HOW ABOUT THOSE TEBOWS!!!!


The reaction to the ad, both before and after it was aired, is surely telling of the crisis this still Christian nation faces.  Let that one sink in – and then do a little mining of your own for the Tebow ad and the responses.  (By the way, you feminists should check on Betty White and see if she’s doing okay after the “violence” delivered on her poor old body in the other Super Bowl ad.)  Responses to my opinions always welcome.  DebV



Ayla Brown Sings With Boston Pops – This is just one link of many available on YouTube about Scott Brown’s already famous daughter, Ayla.  Personally, I think she is a very impressive young woman who reflects positively on her now famous father.  It’s the parenting thing with me I guess.



Here's An Update on the Geert Wilders trial.  Just a short story, but read the implications of the outcome through this one quote:  It marked an incendiary opening to the landmark case that has divided the Netherlands over the limits of freedom.”  Limits of freedom?  Watch this trial, folks!  It may give us more than a little insight into just how powerful Islamic dominance will become.



Comparing Reagan With Obama – this short piece reminds us again of the common sense representative compared to the incredible ego.  “Facebook generation” not withstanding, accurate history will hopefully get it right.



Who else thinks that the birth control pill was the greatest invention of the 20th century – besides Hugh Hefner I mean?  Hardly!  Geoffrey Botkin tells it like it is in this World Net Daily article.  Take a look at his website after you read the article.  Take time for the insightful review of Avatar, whether or not you have seen or plan to see the movie. 



The Brits rate conservatives and liberals according to their influence in American politics.  Take time to review both these lists, (the top 20 in each) and pay special attention to the comments section that follows.  This is how you really keep your finger on the pulse of the American electorate after all.



America As the Last Man Standing – a speech by Dutch politician, Geert wilders.  If you haven’t read this before, now is a good time.  As reported January 16, 2010, he has now been charged with a “hate crime” in the Netherlands.  Geert Wilders Speaks is a video interview, (this is part 1 and part 2 is available from this link also.)  The man has been and is being persecuted (and now prosecuted) for speaking his mind, and he deserves to be heard.



Going, Going, Gong! – Okay, half the fun of this article is reading the comments.  It’s all about the shake up at NBC with Jay and the boys.  For the record, I’ve always liked Jay Leno’s brand of humor.  Conan O’Brien, on the other hand turns me off.  He looks and acts like a scarecrow hopped up on speed.  The only reason I put this here is to ponder a point.  Leno seems to have made enemies – probably due in part to his equal opportunity jabs at BOTH sides of the political aisle.  Think about that one.



Words Mean Things – Or do they?  Maybe only mean words mean mean things?  Maybe only just words that can be skewed to be racist mean things?  Anybody else think “honest injun” is a racial slur?  How about “white trash” or “black power” or let’s think way back to this article I wrote when the whole Trent Lott debacle happened.



We the People – and God love Ray Stevens!  From Ahab the Arab to this one, he just keeps getting better with age!  Don’t miss this one, folks.  Have a listen to a real American Patriot Entertainer!



Look Them In The Eyes – The difference between airport security in Israel and North America – time and individual attention to the individual – not their “stuff”!  Good article and well worth the read!



Telling Video – Senator Jim DeMint, (R), South Carolina questions rules changes hidden in health bill rammed through the Senate on Christmas Eve that seek to make it impossible for future congresses to repeal bad law.  Listen for the word, “tyranny” in this one, folks!



Christians are the New Negro – by Kenneth Hutcherson.  This is an excellent, thought provoking commentary!  Well worth the read!



America Under Barack Obama – by John W. Whitehead – an interview with Nat Hentoff. 

This man bridges all the popular ideologies with his consistent and individual views.  Take the time to read this for an in depth look at this president from a man who cannot be labeled.  Excellent!



Verification Page For Letter making the email circuit now.  Ninety-five year old veteran of WWII dictated, signed and sent this letter to Obama.  It is a MUST READ!  God bless patriots like this man!  Thanks to Mr. Veritas for submitting it to this site.



Pew Research Quiz – How well informed are you?  Twelve questions weed out the answer for you.  The Big Kahuna and I dare you to take the quiz!  We did.  Write and ask us for our results!  Kahuna  DebV  



Official Challenger – Out of nowhere or rising star?  Pelosi may have her work cut out for her to beat this guy and remain in her majestic seat of power!  I know some good people in that fruity land of San Francisco that would love to be rid of her.  People like John Dennis may just be the answer to saving America – one piece at a time.



Congress Must Stop KSM Trial – by Phillis Schlafly is a must read article!  This is a pending crisis – a REAL crisis in this country, and shame on an Attorney General and his supporting administration and an accomplice congress that would look the other way!  This may be the very last chance the Constitution has to save the United States Of America from all enemies – foreign and domestic!



Good Report On the Global Warming Fraud – This insidious campaign to turn American’s pockets inside out for the rest of the world via the ridiculous claims of global warming should have been stopped in its tracks a long time ago.  But since it wasn’t – let’s see if congress has what it takes to once and for all sort out the truth and stand up for this country!



Reviving the tenth Amendment – from Barry Farber.  This one makes points that too many citizens have never thought of.  Ever wonder why America is truly different?  Here’s your answer!



Glenn Beck Video On "War Tax" etc. – Telling it like it is as always, Beck nails it again!



Tea Partiers Turn On Each Other – This is exactly what I’ve been afraid of.  One cannot expect collective, groupthink – call it what you will, to ever defend individual rights!  We do not all go into a voting booth together.  We vote as individuals.  We live our lives as individuals.  As soon as we employ collectivism to solve individual problems, we are doomed! 



Boots On – Okay folks, here’s your entertainment relief for the day!  This kid has a real future, don’t ya think?



Is He Or Isn't He? - by Paul Hollrah.  With an old, (by some standards), article.  From March of this year, this columnist makes some mighty good points – but the liberals and the shameful media had rather compartmentalize him along with the rest of the “birthers.”  What does it take to gain credibility in this country any more?  Oh, that’s right – you just have to be able to ignore or bury the truth!



This website expounded on Mr. Hollrah’s article in July of this year, and those comments have now been compiled in an email making the rounds.  Well, gee, folks, it is now well into October.  How long are we supposed to wait for answers?



Recent Article From Paul Hollrah – Summer of 1981.  I know I’m devoting a lot of space here to this author, but reading each piece is a must to understand the extent of the lie being foisted on the American public by the Obama phenomenon.  We cannot afford the consequences of ignoring facts and embracing falsehoods.



Not Defined By Our Differences? – Mark Steyn’s excellent commentary on appearances at recent U.N. conference.  What flavor ice cream would you like?



Where Is Obama's Center? – another winner from Mark Steyne on health care etc.  Come on, people – who still believes Obama “cares” about anything but Obama?



Now Meet Mark Steyn in this video as he discusses multiculturalism.  Take the time – you won’t regret it!



The Fate Of the Dollar – The bottom line, if the world is so anxious to see the dollar fail, if that is the main measurement of “power” in the world, then whatever takes over can be the world’s police force and the world’s caretaker in crisis situations.  Super power means super responsible.  Anybody think there is a better candidate for THAT job?



God and Guns from Lynrd Skynyrd – lyrics to think about!  Okay, folks, you’ve got to know that I have a special place in my heart for “Sweet Home Alabama,” that old classic by this group, but the lyrics of this new song make up for the obvious lack of musical uniqueness compared to the classic.  However, it is scary to read some of the feedback attitudes for both the group and the song.  This is a perfect example of racism being attached where it doesn’t belong!  



Globalist Cover-up – Hiding Obama’s Past, by Mychal Massie is an excellent posit for immediate consideration.  I happen to agree with his “front man” theory.



The Bear Quintuplets – Thanks to Little fish for this extraordinary story and pictures.



Comments From Obama's "Funny Guy" – stand up comedy on the Hill from Goolsby, economic advisor and long-time friend of Obama.  You can’t make stuff like this up.  You hardly know how to take this guy as he makes a joke out of a lot of truth.  Not until he takes a slap at Palin and Fox News that is.



Outsourcing Afghanistan – that seems to be the VP’s advice.  Wrong again!  Read this concise article by Karl Rove.  Is America ever again going to be allowed (by the politicians) to actually win a war?



Republicans' Early Warning – this video was yanked from Youtube, but rerouted through Canada.  The word is that it could be yanked again at any time.  In 2008 Fox News put together this special report with video proving the Republican, (Bush Administration) concern over Freddie and Fannie, and the Democrats’ blocking of legislation to control future financial difficulties.  (That’s a nice way to put it.)     now, who can watch this and decide any of the Democrats should retain and credibility or power to legislate ANYTHING?



Guess Who Needs Bailed Out Now? – I know we are in an upside down world, but this takes the cake!  The FDIC wants banks to bail them out?????  Who in their right mind in this country would consider putting their money in a bank any more?



Quotations Of G. K. Chesterton – This is a marvelous page of quotes from an equally marvelous English author.  He was prolific and diverse in his writings, and his profound genius cannot be denied after reading what he had to say. 



Euthanasia and Murder – a deliciously sensitive article by Chesterton.



Outrage Over Obama Worship In School – Yes, it’s outrageous alright, but tell me, why did it take so long to find out this was happening?  Oh, that’s right – some of us knew about it a long time ago and tried to get folks to listen. 



Sarah Palin's Speech in China recently.  Although some in the media tried their best to discredit everything about her, it is now obvious to the most casual observer, (media? I don’t see no stinkin’ media) that this woman exudes intelligence, common sense, and hope.  In a chess game with the current administration, Sarah could win it blindfolded!

Here is how she ended that speech – I hope you will read the whole thing:

“When my country again achieves financial stability and economic growth – when we roar back to life as we shall do – it will be thanks in large part to the hard work and common sense of these ordinary Americans who are demanding that government spend less and tax less and allow the private sector to grow and prosper.

We’re not interested in government fixes; we’re interested in freedom! Freedom! Our vision is forward looking. People may be frustrated now, but we’re very hopeful too.

And, after all, why shouldn’t we be? We’re Americans. We’re always hopeful.

Thank you for letting me share some of that hope, and a view from Main Street with you. God Bless You.”




The Whatchamacallit Bill – Gotta hand it to those Dems!  They are quick to pick up on the fact that words mean things, so whenever possible, just change the language of that pesky legislation.  Can you define “Cap and Trade?  Yes, Senator Kerry – we DO know the language!



Interesting Match-Up – from the Politico, wishing, perhaps, to cause some sort of divide which is NOT there?  The story is about comparing the “power” of Rush Limbaugh to that of Glenn Beck, but the underlying message is anything but innocent.  These are two very different guys who do not require that their audiences like one more than the other.  To me, they represent, along with Sean Hannity, the very diverse viewpoints of people with intelligence and the talent to express it.  They also represent people who know what it’s like to work hard and make it big.  They ARE the American Dream.  Nobody handed any of them their success on a silver platter.



Why We're Talking About Race, Again by Star Parker.  She nails it!  If we have to talk about something, the government surely doesn’t want us talking about what it’s really doing to us!



HR 450 - The Enumerated Powers Act – watch this short video and learn what you can do to have a positive effect on Congress!



The Arrogance Is Breathtaking by Patrice Lewis.  Exactly, and very well said!  No wonder the president likes to throw that word around to describe the America he hates – he is oozing with the stuff.



The Executive Order – A succinct, researched study into perhaps the most deadly domestic threat we face.  If you’ve never doubted that the Constitution rules the government, you need to read this!



The Bear and the Lion – Great little video!  Thanks to Little Fish for finding this one!



Dog Show – and from the same site – hey, we can’t talk politics all the time, now can we?  There are many more videos available from this site.



Axelrod - Wrong? – the “drive shaft” of the Obama Express says that the demonstrators who poured into Washington D.C. to protest, among other things, the government attempt to take over health care in this country are, well, they’re just wrong!  He said, “the protestors do not represent the view of the broader public when it comes to health care reform.”  Okay David old buddy, I’ll give you that!  There probably are more people with their hands out for taxpayer money than there are those who understand our Constitutional Republic these days – thanks to government run education! 


He went on to say, "You know, one of the great things about our country is people can express themselves even if they're not representative of the majority."


Yes, and the reason that is so is because two hundred and thirty-three years ago a majority was ignored, and “a few” insisted on founding the greatest country in the world!


In the words of Mr. Veritas, “Wake Up America!”



A Real Single Payer System – Thomas Sowell, God bless your succinct wisdom!  This really says it all and then some!



Put the Country First – Beck knocks it out of the park again with this video!  Quarantine the disease and hunt for the cure.



Have You Forgotten? – Worth the few minutes to let it sink in.



Against the Rules To Save A Baby? – Nationalized health care at work, a.k.a. death panel?  What good is modern medical knowledge if it is withheld deliberately when it could save a living, breathing, human being that obviously wants to live – with a parent desperately wanting to take care of him?  And we humans call ourselves compassionate??



Man Is Not Free Unless Government Is Limited – Straight to the point, well produced video.  Watch!



Menu Of Reagan Speeches – History worth reading!



The School Speech – all in all, it’s a good speech.  Motivational, encouraging, empathetic without being sympathetic – placing the outcome of the country squarely on the kids’ shoulders.  The only negative I see is that while he can say, What you make of your education will decide nothing less than the future of this country. What you’re learning in school today will determine whether we as a nation can meet our greatest challenges in the future.”

He has managed to blame everything he can on the “previous administration” when explaining the existing negatives in our economy etc., etc., etc.  It may be up to the kids to build a better future, but it was up to us (we previous generations) not to squander their resources.  Also it’s the “what they are learning in school today” that has the capacity to sink their future big time.  Just my two cents!



The Government Can – very entertaining video and so full of truth!  Have fun with this one!



Been There - Done That – When the Dems raised the devil about GHW Bush broadcasting to school kids, that was then.  But this is now when Obama does it, and it’s great isn’t it?  What does the administration expect in this "silly season" of watching freedom turn to tyranny via daily OMG discoveries.  We already know that communists like to get to the kids through indoctrination, so why shouldn’t we be suspicious?



August 28 Sacramento Tea Party – very good video!  Thanks to Lewie!



Obama Administration Imploding? – Really?  Okay, this is a very good article – worth reading, but I have to wonder if Kevin McCullough has it right.  It’s all politics, so who knows?  One thing keeps echoing in my head, though – this has all been by design. 



Interesting View From a "Democratic Strategist" – an indictment of Obama’s foreign policy.  Mr. Schoen hits it out of the park for the most part.  I don’t entirely agree with his nuanced take, of course, but read with an open mind.



This Post Turtle Analogy Is Great – by Patrick Dorinson.  Succinct and brilliant also come to mind.  Everybody awake now?  Pat yourself on the back – finally!



Video Kerry vs. Cheney and Hatch on CIA, Obama, Holder – oh you know the script.  I must say Cheney and Hatch held their own and Kerry looked as um, important as he ever did!



Diane Watson Praises Castro – “You can think whatever you want to about Fidel Castro, but he was one of the brightest leaders I have ever met.” 

Uh, thanks, Diane, we will just think whatever we want, okay?  Thank you!



Barney and Ron Working Together? – Keep an eye on this one, folks!  Yes, audit the Fed – but why does it take so many whys and wherefores to get it done?



The Trouble With Trillions – by John Lott.  Speaking of what the horrendous deficit means to you – read it and weep.  Key here – “Is the benefit they get from the government spending all this money greater than what they could have gotten if they had spent that money themselves?”  (The difference in individualist and collectivist thinking obviously.)



Video - Marine At Townhall – If you haven’t seen this, here it is.  As Little Fish says, “Ya gotta love a marine” . . . for telling it like it is!



What a Letter! - This caused quite a stir, as many of those open letters to the president usually have a way of doing.  It was attributed to a fourth grade teacher, who has since denied writing it, and the latest info says it comes from one Franklin Bell, a businessman.  No matter who wrote it, there is little said with which I could find fault.  Thanks to Lewie for bringing it to my attention.



Audio - Reagan Speaks Out – against socialized medicine.  This is well worth the listen, and remember this is coming as a blast from the past – the sixties!



Criminal Charges For Praying In School – Just to remind everyone that this stuff happens!  Unconstitutional?  You bet – but since when has that stopped anything?



"Hyping" Artificial Life – Okay, folks, we just want to keep y’all up to date so you can keep straight about what’s life and what ain’t!  (I wonder if there would be any controversy over aborting this type of man-made life – eh?)



Dem Situation Out Of Control? – I would hope these estimates are still very low!  The fight for Congressional seats seems to be heating up.



Obamacare - Point and Counterpoint – by Dr. Frank Rosenbloom from American Thinker.  Excellent rebuttal to the big sell on health care.



Western Hemisphere Dictator – Obama’s pal, Chavez, sounds like a town bully trying to teach his admirer a lesson.  Any wonder if our prez is taking notes?



Take a Look At the "Pile Driver" – Interesting look into the White House man in charge, Rham Emanuel, and others.  “. . . friends said he believed the more someone used power, the more power that person had.”



Barbara Simpson's Excellent Article  - “Another Obama Mistake” – She gets it right just about every time!  If you’ve never listened to her on the radio, you’ve missed a real treat.  Read this for a reminder of what’s really important!



U.S. Withdrawal From Iraq? – When is soon enough?  With one mission accomplished, if we are hamstrung on the other, why stay?  What those folks don’t realize is that we never wanted to be there in the first place.  The vision was as it always has been for America – to expand freedom and stamp out evil.  Most Americans don’t even want that any more, do they?



Just a Little Company Get Together – A must read from Neal Boortz if you want to understand the effects of the health care proposals currently being defended by the liberals in Congress and the administration.



Liberal Lies About National Health Care, Part I – by Ann Coulter.  If you haven’t read it, please do so.  In her unique style Ann knocks it out of the park.  The reason we have problems with insurance in this country is because the government is too involved already.  Hmmmmm, I think I’ve been saying that too!



A Very Worthy Cause – Short video about a program started by WWII vet to supply wounded soldiers with service dogs. 



34 Million On Food Stamps – for the first time ever.  The increase is staggering, and coupled with the unemployment figures, how can anyone think the economy is improving?



Whitehouse Enemies List? – Sure sounds like it.  Let me just make it real easy for them, I think the whole administration and most of the Congress is “fishy” – and besides that, they stink to the high heavens!  If I’m on a “list” I can assure you that I’ve been there for a long while!



Video - Obama Shows two Faces In One Speech – I suppose supporters would claim this is taken out of context, but really, does he want us to know exactly what he is ever talking about?  Just a question.



Here's the Video, and here's the story about the Georgia congressman who lost his cool with a doctor at a town hall meeting.  It seems Rep. David Scott, (D), had his talking points down and his ire up at a real constituent he accused of astroturfing.  I guess this is one of those guys Obama doesn’t want to listen to, (the doctor I mean.)



 Seno On the Health Care Protests – In pure John Seno form, this article prosecutes the case against the media quite well. 

            Mainstream media is supposed to journal events, not shape them.”

Great!  Now, when will THEY get the message?



Ken Klukowski's Excellent Analysis On Sotomayor Confirmation –Take special note of his thoughts on her application of the Second Amendment.  This one could take decades to repair!  (By the way, have you read Brett's piece yet?)  He covers the question of the Second Amendment applying to the states.  



Six Chosen For Medal Of Honor – from Newsmax.  These stories should be much more prominent than they ever are.



Cash For Clunkers Clunking Along – Yes, this thing makes so much sense – bring in a perfectly running vehicle so the government can first kill the engine and then crush the body.  Hey, does that remind anybody of, oh, I don’t know, the economy or perhaps healthcare?



Video From Glenn Beck Discussing CARS – while we’re on the subject, this one will curl your hair!  Be very careful about logging on to the CARS government website folks.  Watch this video!



Another Great Glenn Beck Video – This one on “Change Blindness” – the current malady of far too many!



Disabled Baby Boomers – This article should bring you up short if you have never considered just how “taxed” a government program can get.  Social Security has been around for a long time now, and they can’t handle claims any faster than this?  Yet our esteemed leaders ask us to sign on to a boondoggle like government run healthcare for everyone?



I Love a Mystery, Don't You? – Actually, no mystery here – just more of the same in putting the whole illegal alien thing on ICE.  Guess it melts real fast out there in the desert!



Government Shutdown In Alabama – Most populous county, Jefferson County, Alabama, (containing the Birmingham area) is apparently another one hitting the dust.  Naturally, according to this article, lawmakers can’t agree on anything that would help.  Another bond deal goes sour too – who votes for that stuff?



Definition Of a "Triumph" For Barack Obama – Gotta love how the AP words things, folks!  Well, it sure isn’t a triumph for anyone else! 



You Gotta Love the Headline – “Freedom of expression must be limited” according to Hugo Chavez.  Bet Obama’s taking notes, don’t you?



Where America Stands Today – by Glenn Beck.  Just an excellent article!



To All Non-Birthers – read this article!  Maybe you guys are the ones that should don your tin foil hats now!



 What's In the Healthcare Bill – Just in case you still need it spelled out.  Who are these people who would EVER be in favor of this?



A Federal Criminal Or Not? – Who knows?  You know how I rail about too many laws on the books – well, read this for a real scare!



The Nerve – that we might actually expect Congressmen to read the bills they vote on!  John Conyers, (D – Mich.) tells it like it probably is and has been for some time.  So many pages, so few (?) lawyers . . .


Robert Gibbs "ad nauseam" again – on the “proof” of Obama’s birth.  Two things, Bob old buddy, DNA wouldn’t prove Americanism and uh, sites like this one cost a heck of a lot more than $15 – just not as much as covering up the truth has cost your ilk – but I’m just sayin’ . . .  Oh, and I don’t buy the right to say what I want – that’s God-given and the Constitution, (the same one you and others like you trash every day) is there to protect it!



Glenn Beck Video – Watch this one all the way through, folks.  Catch Obama’s words at the end.



Democrats Blocking Republican Correspondence – This is a doozy, folks.  Republicans are trying to graphically illustrate to their constituents the Dem’s proposed health care plan.  The Dems say, “no way.”  I really don’t care if it is 100% accurate or not – look at this thing!  Kudos to anyone trying to illustrate it!



A Lot Of Hot Air! – read this report from Science and Technology News and then tell me what global warming is really all about!  Here’s an especially telling quote:

“Carbon trading worldwide reached $126 billion in 2008. Banks, which profit most, are calling for more. Experts are predicting the carbon market will reach $2 - $10 trillion in the near future. Hot air will soon be the largest single commodity traded on global exchanges.”


I’m all for auditing the science that allows this!



War Of Words? – I’m including this here because when I read it, I just couldn’t help thinking, this is the Secretary Of State of the United States Of America!  She could have been President.  While I would never come down on the side of North Korea, I can’t help but wonder what she could have done differently so that we would not have to read garbage like this!



Understanding the NEA – according to outgoing “top attorney” Bob Chanin.  If you’ve ever wondered what these folks really think, here’s your chance to know!  It’s all about power, folks.  From the horse’s mouth, even kids are not more important than that!



Obama, Something We Can't Afford – That would be national defense according to him.  Good read. 



Iraq Restricts U.S. Forces – It is absurd to expect the U.S. military to continue dying in the cause for “Iraqi Freedom” if the incapable politicians there and here call all the shots.  Our guys cleared the way for political corruption to now stand in the way of them defending themselves.  How long before the helicopters land on the rooftops?  Politicians don’t fight wars – they only start them – and they certainly do NOT know how to win them!



It's Not An Option – This “public option” jargon is anything but optional, folks.  Your government thinks you are really stupid.  The question is:  are you?



Health Care, A Right and A Responsibility – In other words, since it will be a “right” then you will have a responsibility mandated.  Okay, I’ve got a great idea!  Since we’ve always had a right to bear arms, perhaps THAT should be a mandated responsibility too!  How would the anti-gunners like THAT one?



 Jonathan Krohn (age 13) Video Defining Conservatism – and this from 11 year-old Sara Warmack’s Tea Party Speech should give us all hope that these young folks and others like them will grow up to be America’s future leaders.  On this subject, I am appalled at some of the critical remarks by obvious liberals about these two young people and their parents.



Video Tribute to a fallen soldier from Georgia.  This one is different because it is a reflection of American values that seldom gets reported.  This community turned out by the thousands to honor their local hero.  What a concept!  Maybe there really is hope for America after all.



When Basketball Meets Social Justice – by Thomas Sowell.  This is an excellent article by a man I respect very much.  Now, if we could only get him to run for some political office!



Czar This and That – “Media buzzword” they say?  Since when did the media worry about overreaching power of this administration?  I just want my country back please!



 Remove Government From Healthcare – by Dr. Edwin Leap.  Excellent commentary from a guy in the trenches of the healthcare war. 



 Breathtaking Ignorance - Judge Andrew Napolitano makes it abundantly clear why many conservatives, including myself, spoke out against shredding the Constitution to “keep us safe” – via such abject audacious legislation as the infamous “Patriot Act” during the Bush administration.  The judge is referring to the legal advice given to Bush by John Yoo, (and probably others), but wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall during such legal discussions taking place within the Obama administration?  I’m no lawyer, but you’ve got to wonder just what they are being taught these days!



Another War Memorial Under Attack – Short Video explaining the ACLU attack on Mohave Dessert, WWI memorial.  It is a cross, of course, and we know how that infuriates and offends evil!  Sounds like a “hate crime” against God if you ask me.



Read This Article – from July 5th to see what is “officially” being done to brand the conservative views as terrorist.  Shake in your boots from anger – not fear – that this is happening, and being funded, with so much conservative as well as liberal support!



545 People – by Charlie Reese.  This is only one link to this article, but it is literally all over the internet and plastered in email repeatedly.  Just read it and you will understand why.



John Holdren, another wonderful czar appointment of Obama’s – the original Chicken Little is now “Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology — informally known as the United States’ Science Czar.”  He not only started yelping about global warming over two decades ago, but earlier than that, he was actively promoting zero population growth – any way it could be accomplished!  Science indeed!  The only science guys like this care about is the science of promulgating hate.



Sotomayor Faces Senate Hearings – The historical drama of these confirmation hearings may rival daytime soaps, but we really should pay attention.  Question:  Does obvious racism have a place on the U.S. Supreme Court?



Obama On Slavery – Is there no end to the audacity of Obama while on foreign soil?  Wait!  It’s not so foreign for him I guess.  Anyway, read this and tell me that this president has any good plans to “heal” race relations in America!



Video of McCain On Meet the Press – John McCain earned positive points with me as he answered the grilling on this Sunday program about his former running mate.  I believe in giving credit where credit is due!



Gore Goes Global Governance – Everything you always wanted to know about warming, cooling, carbon wasters, (I’m more concerned about the oxygen wasters) but I must include a warning:  don’t eat before you read – nausea is a possible side effect!



The Psychological Campaign Against the American People – This article is six and a half years old, but, if I do say so myself, it still fits given all that has happened since.



Shame Of America In Trying Times – Another oldie that could have been written today.



Zero Sum Tolerance – And finally another blast from the past.



Zelaya To Discuss Honduras Crisis With Clinton – This guy won’t give up!  And why should he with such blatant support from this administration?  From Russia Obama had this to say:  "We respect the universal principle that people should choose their own leaders, whether they are leaders we agree with or not." 

Uh, wait a minute!  Zelaya did everything he could to get around those principles when he went against his country’s congress, constitution, and supreme court to try and install his perpetual power to remain the leader.  With buddies like Zelaya and Hugo Chavez, do we have to wonder what Obama would like to do here? 



On Green Lights and Dictators – Speaking of what we, (U.S.) have a right to determine for other countries, in the case of Israel:

"We can't dictate to other countries what their security interests are. “  - Obama  

“The US "cannot dictate to another sovereign nation what they can and cannot do."  - Biden 

 However, no “green light” for one choice Israel might take.  I do believe I remember that both these gentlemen were worried about Sarah Palin’s ignorance and inexperience on foreign policy getting in the way of her possible leadership, but I’ll bet she would not have constantly defended the wrong side, (dictators) as this administration is doing!  I’m just saying . . .



Obama Trips – I betcha Sarah knows who the president of her “neighboring” country, Russia is too – don’t you?  Okay, so I’m nitpicking, but it is about time somebody did - in support of Governor Palin and not against her all the time.



No Obamamania In Russia – From the elites or the youngsters.  When is this guy going to wake up and stop trying to dictate to dictators?



Powell Can't Help Himself – A liberal by any other name would smell . . .

Did anybody really expect he wouldn’t defend Sotomayor?



 Gore Pours It On Thick – Okay, folks, this really belongs on the humor page, but here goes.  This guy is just plain old inconvenient as he likens global warming to everything from World War II to the Moon Walk!  Please!  To evoke Churchill and Kennedy is just beyond inconvenient.



Thank you, N.Y. Times and that expert ink squirter, Maureen Dowd, for such a concise picture of Sarah Palin’s recent decision to step down from her governor’s title.  In this piece Ms. Dowd leaves nothing to the imagination about her bias.  My favorite part is that she gets the whole job done so quickly and doesn’t blather on in a stupendous word count like her counter part did for Vanity Fair.  (See below.)  I’ll write a little more on this subject at a later date probably, but suffice it to say, those of us who understand limited government and representative republic understand Palin’s stated and unstated reasons for turning Alaska over to her lieutenant governor at this time.



Tammy Bruce has a thing or two to say on the subject of McCain camp support of Sanford and trashing of Sarah Palin, that continued this week in the hit piece appearing in Vanity Fair.  (If you haven’t read that one, save your eyes – it’s far too long – probably due to the Pinocchio syndrome brought on by lying!)  But, then, we always did know that McCain attracts strange bedfellows.  Now, let me wrap all of this up for you – Tammy’s article, great as usual.  McCain camp and daughter – suffering from “morality compromised,” a social disease threatening common sense and integrity in today’s world.  Sarah Palin – probably the only reason a large number of us were able to hold our nose and vote for John McCain last November.  P.S.  If she wasn’t a threat, she would be off the radar by now!



Video - Obama Answers "Best" Healthcare Question – Doesn’t everybody want the very best?  Government run aint it!

This Newsbusters article covers it nicely.



Meghan McCain wrote this doozy that somewhat defends Mark Sanford.  (Meghan is John’s daughter by the way.)   This quote: “We have to stop requiring that our politicians live at such a high level of moral superiority, as if they are infallible creatures.” 

Excuse me?  Here’s another quote:  I don’t know if it’s the fact that I am younger, or that just have a more open-minded view of politicians and sex, but it’s of very little concern to me who elected officials sleep with. Frankly, I think all of that is a private matter between a husband and wife, even if it is made public. Beyond that, life is complicated. And I can’t even imagine how complicated it must get after 20 years of marriage and four kids.”

Uh, Meghan, honey, there really isn’t anything complicated about adultery.  It is what it is (no matter what the definition of “is” is.) 



White House Reporters Grill Gibbs – Priceless video!  Helen Thomas even arose from her slumber, and Chip Reid – wow!  You work for CBS?  The Come Back Soon network may have a chance yet!



The Sky Is NOT Falling – but the Capitol Dome certainly is!  Really, folks, are we going to believe scientists or politicians?  The scientists decided to reach out to lawmakers with an open letter.  The proposed legislation would cripple the US economy . . .” is one quote.  Are we going to continue letting our representatives pass destructive laws while the administration strong arms and bribes them to do so?  Let’s hope the Senate stops this Cap and Trade excrement in its tracks!



Very Well Done Tribute to the signers of the Declaration Of Independence and current soldiers fighting for America today.



Note From A Cop – Observations from a credible source about fear and what some Americans are doing about it.  “The fear on the street is palpable. Ever since the election of Barack Obama as President of these United States in November 2008, coupled with the election of a democrat party majority in both the U.S. House and Senate, concern for the United States and personal safety has ignited like a fire in dry grass.” 

That how the piece opens.  This is the guy who wrote it:

“Written By; Scott Wagner is a Police Academy Commander and Professor at Columbus State Community College in Columbus Ohio, and Commander of the 727 Counter Terror Training Unit. A 29 year law enforcement veteran, and current Deputy Sheriff, he is the Precision Marksman for the Union County Sheriff’s Office SRT Team.”

‘Nuff said!



Active Menace of a website right there.  It has been set up to work for the appeal of the 22nd amendment, (term limits on presidency.)  If you are an FDR fan you will love it, however, if you know your history, be afraid – be very afraid!



Remembering What the Declaration Of Independence Is Not – another great article from American Thinker and Bruce Walker.  It most certainly was not “poll driven.”



Obama Implores Senate – After the House of Few Representatives passed the behemoth Cap and Trade bill on Friday, Obama hit the airwaves to pressure the Senate to follow suit.  The funniest thing about this story is that Nancy Pelosi has a new name for all those citizens who tried to have their say in our Representative Constitutional Republic by contacting our actual representatives with our opinions:  “the entrenched agents of the status quo.”  Yep, that’s what we are, lady – entrenched in our rich history of freedom under a government that is supposed to allow us to keep it in check!  Please do your homework on this thing, folks, and keep those lines “jammed” with your opinions, or we won’t have a very bright future!  This is truly a government out of control!  Legislating the climate is like killing the goose that laid the golden eggs.



Video Attack on Marriage – Short but effective.  Janet Porter’s recent article, The President's Tasteless Jokes is also another winner.  Thanks Janet!



There is a lot of sense in Thomas Sowell’s latest, Republicans In the Wilderness – as people are floundering around for a way to defeat the takeover of the left.  It reminds me of when I was first learning to type, (on a typewriter), yes, I’m THAT old!  The first exercise I learned was not about a quick sly fox jumping over a lazy dog – rather, it was simply: Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their party.  Later, strangely enough, the exercise was changed to: Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.  Could it really be that simple?  However, as Mr. Sowell said, and I’ve always believed:

  “Unfortunately, the only political party with any chance of displacing the current leadership in Washington is the Republican Party.”



Video explaining why our rights evaporated – Take the sixteen minutes to watch this and then do the digging for yourself.  What this guy lacks in oratory ability, he more than makes up for in fact!



The Politically Incorrect Guide To the South - by Clint Johnson 

This is a book well worth reading.  This link will let you read a chapter to give you a taste.  Now, you Yankees might not be too comfortable with the facts contained in this meticulously researched book, but get over it and allow yourself the pure learning experience.  Keep in mind the way things are going now within our corrupt government, which is seeking to destroy the last vestiges of individuality, heritage, and birthright as it ignores this important part of American history. 

            “American by birth – Southern by the Grace of God.”



 Her Name Was Neda - This is but one story about the Iranian woman who is becoming the symbol of Iranian resistance, but it tells of the threats to her family not to memorialize her death.  Iran is ruled by religious theocracy – not by that pompous little figurehead.  Neda and her family wanted a funeral in a mosque – not a Catholic church or Jewish temple – yet these supposed “holy” men of Islam said “no.”  Why would America ever bow to a religion like that?



Another Iranian Family Told Not To Honor Their Child With Funeral – This one tends to bring out the “bottom line” of this “peaceful” version of theocracy in Iran.  In order to claim body of their son, there was a “bullet fee” of $3,000!  Why would anyone want to live under this stuff?



Video - Inspector General of Fed Questioned – Dubbed, “There Are No Words” this is one to watch!  By the way, that’s a Dem doing the questioning.  If only there were more willing!



Mr. Obama, Show Us Your Birth Certificate – by Pat Boone

Another “Birther” – and I feel like I’m in very good company!



Born Again American – This is a quality video produced by a collaborative effort of Americans from all walks of life, political persuasions, and backgrounds – with one thing in common – they love America!  Well worth the time to view and listen.  Thanks, Rose!



Obama Frets On Debt – Worrying keeps him up nights?  Do tell!  It is amazing how everything about the economy seems to turn to the “health care crisis.”  Folk, this manufactured crisis is second only to global warming in futility and destructiveness!

Rising health care costs have to do with one thing – rising demand for health care.  If it has been drummed into us for decades that we cannot survive without costly doctor visits and health screenings, what do you expect?



Eligibility Document Plan Not Personal – Read and digest this one if you haven’t already and then tell me, do the American people ever have recourse against anyone who could ever be considered an interloper?  Talk about closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out!  This piece of legislation should not even be necessary IF we still had a viable Constitution!!!  Oh, and if the offense is not impeachable, then just what is?  (Shades of Bill Clinton lying to a Grand Jury while being judged not on that but on his sexual activities.)  



North Korea Plan Missile Launch – Independence Day threat to Hawaii – Would it be too “arrogant” for us to protect and retaliate?  The world is watching!



U.S.Military Tracking North Korean Ship – “Kang Nam could be carrying missile parts or nuclear materials in violation of U.N. Security Council resolution.”


The Kang Nam is known to be a ship that has been involved in proliferation activities in the past -- it is "a repeat offender," according to one military source.”


“The apparent violation raises the question of how the United States and its allies will respond, particularly since the U.N. resolution does not have a lot of teeth to it.” 


"The White House feels comfortable and confident that we have an understanding of what this resolution does." 


All of the above are quotes from the article – doesn’t everyone feel better now?



Obamacare Horror Story You Won't Hear – by Michelle Malkin

Take a good look as this Michelle writes a little history about the other Michelle.  Who really cares about the poor?  Bravo Ms. Malkin!



Some GlennBeck Videos From "The One Thing" Feature – This week’s entries were especially good, including Glenn’s reading of a great letter he received.  To read the letter, go here. 




Defining Natural Born Citizen – From the Federalist Blog


The article and following comments (hundreds) provide a very good “autopsy” of the Constitutional requirement for presidency.  Seems funny to me that our current office holder embraces his father’s name while denying his birthright.  But that’s just me – you folks decide, huh?



State Dept. To N. Korea - Stop Provocative Actions – Yeah, Buddy!  Let’s send ‘em to Time Out.  That’ll teach ‘em!  Anybody else think these kids are going to sit down and shut up and learn to play nice?



Chinese Sub Collides With Sonar Array Towed By U.S. Navy Ship – Speaking of playing well with others, China can be downright pushy, eh?  Yes, we have a perfect right to be in Subic Bay, folks.



Protested Election Victory Of Ahmadinejad – What’s to protest?  We do all know the election was fixed, don’t we?  It didn’t matter who won – Islam rules!  Iran is a theocracy before it is anything else!



Iran's Controversial Election and U.S. Relations - Not to worry though – Madam Clinton has her eye on ‘em!

We obviously hope that the outcome reflects the genuine will and desire of the Iranian people."


Look up!  Was that a pig I saw fly by?



 Ahmadinejad Lashes Out At Foreign Press – Okay, this is the last one, I promise – but gee whiz, I wonder what happened to the cell phone service over there?  This is truly a man of his people, huh? 



Doctors Group Oppose Government Insurance Plan – The American Medical Association, (A.M.A.) is telling Congress “no” to public insurance forcing out private insurers.  Let’s see if they have enough weight to throw around.  No pun intended.



Al Qaeda Commander Strapped For Cash – (In Afghanistan) Man, things are just bad all over, aren’t they?  Somebody better tell our president there’s somebody else that needs bailing out.  Why not?  When our guys already have to read Miranda to the enemy on the battlefield.  Now where did I put that bottle of tranquilizers?  Maybe I DO need “health care”!



Greater Threat Than Terrorism Or Recession – by Noel Sheppard.  Very succinct piece about liberal media bias!  Rep. Lamar Smith, (R - Texas) said it and Sheppard reported it.  Good for you guys!  Judging from the response to this article, it struck a chord while it hit a nerve!



Short Video Obama Proclaiming Constitution OLD – Twenty Centuries, huh?  That must have been back when those fifty-seven states were being formed!  I guess our president and vice president are competing in some sort of gaffe race?



Is Obama Guilty Of Treason? – by J.B. Williams from Canada Free Press

This is a must read article because of the “weight” of the accuser, a retired U.S. Naval Commander.  This is not a frivolous suit because if the accusation isn’t true, this guy could be charged with mutiny – also punishable by death.  When is everybody going to get a clue that this is not going away?



North Korea Convicts 2 U.S. Journalists – “Official” reaction to follow:


From the article:


            “The U.S. government said it was ‘deeply concerned.’" 


Okay, these young ladies are American citizens, folks!  Read the article and remember that we have already gone soft on the “Il” Regime for a long time now.  Look where that’s gotten us.  Do you think Obama can learn from his predecessors’ mistakes?


On the same subject, let’s not forget for whom these journalists were working:

Sentenced to Twelve Years In Labor Prison – From the article:


“Ling and Lee, working for former Vice President Al Gore's California-based Current TV, cannot appeal because they were tried in North Korea's highest court, where decisions are final.”


Maybe he can “buy them back” with some of those useless carbon credits!




Obama Says World Must Stand Up To North Korea


This headline is already a couple of weeks old, but the problem hasn’t gone away – it has intensified! 


"North Korea will not find security and respect through threats and illegal weapons," the president said. "We will work with our friends and allies to stand up to this behavior. The United States will never waver from our determination to protect our people and the peace and security of the world."

From the same article:


At the State Department, officials said that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was ‘engaged in intensive diplomacy’ on the issue.”

Anybody else feeling less than secure with these two in charge of our foreign policy?



Obama Warns North Korea Over Nukes – Okay, this is a more recent article – same old same old.  From this article:


Obama said he will take "a very hard look" at deciding how best to respond to Pyongyang's nuclear provocations.

Turning his attention to Iran, Obama called the possibility of Tehran developing a nuclear weapon "profoundly dangerous."

But he insisted the U.S. was intent on   engaging in "tough diplomacy" with Iran.

"We are breaking significantly from past approaches," Obama said. "We are willing to have direct negotiations with the Iranians on a whole range of issues without preconditions in an atmosphere of mutual respect and resolve."

Why do our obvious enemies deserve more respect and resolve than our proven friends like, oh I don’t know, say, Israel???



Cute Video from MSNBC of all places – spoofing TOTUS the POTUS teleprompter!  It’s worth it to wait through the commercial, folks.



Evangelical Group Banned From Tulsa Housing Projects – Okay, see if you can follow the logic on this, folks.  From the article:


And for more than two decades, the fellowship has hosted a religious-themed summer program in Tulsa's tough housing projects, designed to keep children from falling victim to the temptations of drugs and crime.

But recently, the fellowship was told that it was in violation of a long-standing policy prohibiting religious instruction on public housing property, said Larry Koehn, who heads the organization's chapter in the city.

"They said they have a policy now whereby we can't come in and talk about God or Christ," Koehn said. "We can come in and play games and talk about moral things, but we can't mention the name of God."

This is just one example of God being banned all over the country.  At the same time, though, tolerance is being mandated and taught to children as young as kindergarten age as long as the subject is sexual preference.  Can anybody show me the logic???



Mr. Obama, Tear Down This Wall – by Arthur Robinson


As with so many articles I site from WorldNetDaily, this one is excellent.  If you haven’t read it, do so.  The author’s research on the real cost in so many ways of continuing to ignore facts in place of fantasy about economics, power production and the environment is concise and dead-on accurate. 




President Reagan's 1984 Speech At Point-du-Hoc, Normandy


Most inspiring memorial to date!  “What made them do it?”



Iran Leader says America "Deeply Hated In Mid East


Yeah, and what else is new?  The Ayatollah’s opinions on America and Israel, for that matter, are not anything new.  In his own words:

"Even if they give sweet and beautiful (speeches) to the Muslim nation ... that will not create change," he said in a televised speech. "Action is needed."

Isn’t this exactly what we’ve been trying to tell the appeasers in this country, folks?



Bin Laden Tells America To Be Ready For Revenge Against U.S. Policy


Al Jazeera Reports that a new tape puts Bush AND Obama administrations in Bin Laden’s crosshairs – even as Obama states that the United States also could be considered as “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”  Source.  Okay, if you’re not confused yet, just remember that Muslims themselves have always been their own worst enemies.  When will our sophomoric president and his naïve followers get a clue?  Proclaiming America’s Muslim interests as priority can only put a huge target on our backs!  I can’t help thinking about those song lyrics, “if we could (only) talk to the animals.”  Talk is cheap, Mr. Obama, and your actions speak volumes!



Obama Says U.S. Cannot Impose Its Values


From an interview with the BBC prior to going abroad again –


"The danger I think is when the United States or any country thinks that we can simply impose these values on another country with a different history and a different culture," the president told the broadcaster.


That’s funny since he has been imposing an entirely different history and culture on what is supposedly his own country, don’t you think?



Mr. Netanyahu, We Stand With You – by Janet Porter


For a concise look at the situation in Israel, one of the best articles I have ever read on the subject.  Christians and American Jews need to read it!  Bravo, Janet!  Now, if we could just get the president and his cronies to educate themselves a little better, perhaps a disaster of major proportions could be prevented.



Also an article by Joseph Farah - Obama Tells Jews Where They Can Live – I thought we stopped that process here years ago.  Silly me, what do I know?

Obama Seizes Individually Owned Business – Show your ignorance – Say It Ain’t So!



This from USA On the Precipice Of Destruction  by Alan Caruba


““Cap-and-Trade” is a dagger at the heart of America. It will raise the cost of electricity, gasoline, and all forms of energy vital to the economy of the nation. It will enrich the federal government at the loss of hundreds of thousands of jobs. It is a form of taxation that will impact everything we purchase.


It is to the credit of the Republican Party that its members in Congress are waging a battle to deter this piece of legislation from becoming law. As one Republican Senator noted last evening, “Carbon dioxide is what we exhale, every one of us.”


How difficult is it for anyone to understand that CO2 is not a threat and never was?


The threat is the hidden political agenda, socialist in its attempt to control the entire landmass of the nation, to lock away our vast natural energy resources, and to impose laws that will impoverish the present and future generations of America.


The despots of the world are watching and waiting for our destruction. They will celebrate in their palaces. They need not fire a single missile.”



And if you are still hanging in there, read this Turning America Into a Failed State by Daniel Greenfield

Snip:  “The more the government controls, the less productive the American economy becomes. And since expanding government bureaucracy is a parasite that consumes wealth without producing it, the economics of the situation can only trend downward.”



Found these after Memorial Day, but here they are anyway:


Glenn Beck's Moving Memorial Day Salute To Vietnam Vets  - Audio only, but oh, so well done!


Let's Not Forget Memorial Day – Jeff Davis History and very interesting!



Video Taylor Hicks - Do I Make You Proud – Tribute to Troops – Gotta be proud of this homeboy!  Beautiful job, Taylor!




I’ll start out this installment of Short Stuff by melting your heart – if you have one.  View this short video about man and nature – and no, I’m not getting a dime out of this! 



“Threats of financial destruction” – not my words, but this surely tells it like it is.  Check out John Lott - Thugs In the Whitehouse and hold onto your blood pressure!  It sounds to me like all-out economic war has been declared on the taxpayer and financial institutions as well as private corporations and the last vestiges of our free enterprise system.  But then, what do I know?



In the ongoing theme, “Obama’s out of touch,” I think our side is taking it a bit far in this article, Barack Obama's Mustard – so, he likes “elitist” mustard on his hamburger.  C’mon guys, we’ve got bigger fish to fry than this, and who eats mustard on fish anyway?



Okay, now this is more like it!  Step into the light as you read President Obama's 2010 Budget Notable For Exciting Victories For Women's and Youth's Health and Well-Being.  Now, don’t you feel better?



Joseph Farah’s recent article Scary Times For Free Speech lists the reasons for concern in a neat package.  I hope you’ve been following all this stuff!



Obama Says US Long Term Debt Load Unsustainable – Well, DUH!  Isn’t that what we’ve been trying to tell this “entitlement” crowd?  He starts out talking about our debt load to China and the fact that “we are mortgaging our children’s future with more and more debt,” then gets off on the credit card restrictions making the news this week with this jewel:

            “Obama said that restrictions   ‘shouldn’t diminish consumers’ access to credit.’”


Economics 101, Mr. President, credit means debt – you have your creditors and your debtors – only creditors and debtors alike fall into the debtors category where China is concerned if they are taxpaying American citizens!  Personal debt isn’t any more desirable than national debt except that personally you get to make a choice!  But you are right – it is most assuredly UNSUSTAINABLE!



More Americans Pro Life Than Pro Choice For First Time – Interesting!  We’ve come a long way, “baby” but there may be hope yet!  Okay, anyone reading here should know how I feel on this subject, but in case you don’t, I’ll invite you to read One More Attempt At Defining Abortion, which I wrote about 3 years ago.



Judge To Decide If Family Can Refuse Chemo For 13-Year-Old Boy – According to this story, the family is trying to honor the boy’s own wishes for alternative treatment, but once CPS is involved, well, then it takes a judge!  The family asks a very good question:


"What if they make him take chemotherapy and he dies from that?”


Beware!!!  Religious beliefs are involved, and you know how the “law of the land” handles that issue all too often.



 States To Feds - Stay In D.C.


More and more states are deciding to take states rights into their own hands.  Is your state listed?



This from NARTH, National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality –


The APA, American Psychological Association, has been unable to prove the existence of a “gay gene” after who knows just how extensive a series of research studies.   Okay, here’s my Unique Point Of View.  How the medical professionals and science in general choose to approach the subject of “treating” homosexuality as more of a physical or mental problem rests entirely on individual political persuasions and not so much on the science!  I do, however, think it would be a crime to try to convince the majority of homosexuals that there is no “help” for them in the form of possible treatment that could prove successful in a very real life-changing way.  In other words – activists, stop telling people that they just can’t help it!




The Idiocy Of Race Labels – by Walter E. Williams


God bless America and folks like Mr. Williams, who see the extraordinary value of America’s opportunities!  This is a great read, and I definitely agree with the author that:


            These gains would not have been possible anywhere else.”




Peace In the Middle East


Violence Grows In Iraq As American Troops Withdraw – Is anyone really surprised?  They want us gone?  So be it – but don’t talk about American failure for peace in the Middle East.  Since I don’t see too many gray areas in politics and war, I’ve always said, if we want to pull out of Iraq, then let’s pull out altogether from everywhere, but while we are at it, let’s pull our money and support out of every other “foreign entanglement” America is currently in and isolate!  The next war we fight can be right here on our own soil where nobody’s the least little bit safe, and the peaceniks can finally see, up close and personal, exactly what liberty and peace really cost!



Speaking Of Isolation


Here’s the oppisite of isolation in a concise article by Henry Lamb - Sovereignty Surrendered.  Read up on these “pending” treaties.



Politically Correct Beauty Queens


Miss USA California has been in the news a lot.  Carrie Prejean made the “mistake” of answering a loaded question with her honest opinion.  Since this happened a couple of weeks ago, I thought the whole thing had died down finally, but this recent headline assures me it has not.  Beauty pageants don’t rate a lot of press in my unique point of view, but the latest runaway press coverage on both sides of this issue prompts me to comment.  The headline alone from this story defines what is wrong in America today. 


John Tantillo:  Miss USA California Should Quit Or Be Fired


Actually, this quote from the article’s author speaks volumes.


It wasn’t that she spoke her mind or answered honestly and this was wrong.   Right and wrong have nothing to do with it.” 


I’m sure you know by now that the controversy stems from Miss Prejean’s answer to one of the judges in the pageant, homosexual activist, Perez Hilton, asking her whether she thought all states should allow same sex marriage.  Obviously he did not want her opinion, so he gave her a big fat zero and proceeded to call her unprintable (here anyway) names.  She did not answer the question in a mean and nasty way that anyone should have taken offense to, and she sited the (horrible defense) that according to the way she was raised, she thought marriage should be reserved for opposite sexes.  Well, that cinches it, doesn’t it?  Her parents have influenced her moral thought!!!  We can’t have that in this day and age in socialist/communist/ fascist America – now can we?


Some years back another beauty queen got into trouble speaking her moral mind.  You may recall the article I wrote about it, To Be Seen and Not Heard, at the time.  That young lady voiced her support for abstinence, another morally influenced opinion, and received a lot of non-tolerance for her trouble.   



Biden’s Bodings


Vice President Biden took more than his share of ridicule last week when he spouted off about the Swine Flu threat.  With his history of tripping over his own tongue, I guess it was inevitable, but I must agree with the title of this article:


What If Biden Is Right?


As the author, Michael Goodwyn, says, “What if Biden was right to warn his family to stay away from planes, trains, classrooms and other crowded spaces? Shouldn’t we all give our families the same warning?”


Have we really grown so cynical in this country against the “other side” of our political viewpoints that we are willing to dismiss common sense?  And don’t tell me that it’s all about the economics of handling this flu scare – serious economical thought has been tossed to the four winds on every single issue being discussed in today’s America!


The Economy and Immigration


Speaking of which, in this article, titled Illegal Immigration, Liberal Elites, and Obama, author, David Paulin sums it up for me in this paragraph:


“President Obama, for his part, seems determined to give 11 million illegal immigrants, mostly poor and uneducated Hispanics, a path to citizenship. No doubt, he believes this will again demonstrate America's "moral authority" to an audience whose opinions matter to him: anti-Americans elites in Mexico, Europe, and the Third World. And no matter if his immigration plan changes the nation's culture for the worse for ordinary Americans; or at least for ordinary Americans who don't holler and applaud at Sunday church services when their minister yells, "God damn America!"


He tells it like it is as he describes the hypocrisy of the most enthusiastic supporters of illegal immigrants, such as “editorial staffers and executives at the Times and many of their affluent readers” speaking from a vantage point not likely to be overrun by an influx of “lower class” residents.  The point of the article is to reiterate the fact that Obama is out of touch with all but the most elite of societies everywhere. 


I hear you, David, and I most certainly agree!



Of Chryslers and Cartwheels


With this week’s news of Chrysler’s continuing financial drama on the stage of government influenced bankruptcy, this statement from the non-tarp lenders is a must read.  How dare any government official – but especially this president – tongue lash representatives of private investors who stand up for the multitudes of hard-working American investors currently being shafted by economic circumstances that are precisely the fault of government!  Chrysler has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that two wrongs can never make a right, and government answers to private business problems will never solve anything.


On this same subject, here is a must read from author Lee Cary for wonderful levity.  Watch the video at the end even if you have already seen it:


Saturday Tales From 57 States: His Obamaness and The Chrysler



Tea for Two?


Remember those tea parties from Tax Day?  Obama chose to trivialize them with references to “folks waving tea bags” to which Dennis Miller had a response on Bill O’Reilly’s show.   Here's the video.  More proof that Obama is out of touch!



Who’s Got YOUR Back?


Moving on to the ongoing assault on gun owners, have you heard about Obama’s push to ratify this treaty, which would put American gun owners’ fate in the hands of international law?  Better watch this little video.  By the way, these guys aren’t FOX News!


I don’t care which side of the 2nd amendment you come down on, you’d better pay attention to the fine print on the Gun Control Issue in this country under this administration.  Whether you want to ever pull the trigger to defend your rights or not, somebody is going to have to be able to.  Dare I say, you can take that one to the bank!




Hate Those Crimes!

But Who Are the Perpetrators?


Here is another one to stay on top of.  The Hate Crimes Bill.  Read this article and see if you can tell the persecutors from those being persecuted the most.  Everyone, and I do mean everyone better hope this never comes to pass!



More Americans Taking Rx Drugs For Mental Illness


If your head is about to explode, try to hold it together long enough to scan this report.  I’ve written reams about this subject because I don’t think nearly enough people take it seriously as a major problem in this country.  Obviously not if such a difference could be documented in only 10 years!  This is the only concise article I have seen that speaks to both the perceived and real mental health problems in America today.  Too much attention is being paid to treatment of the former while the latter is woefully neglected in my humble opinion!



All You Rightwing Extremists – Listen Up!


Here is a direct quote from a recently released document circulated to law enforcement folks throughout the country from the Department of Homeland Security:


“(U) Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”


Read the rest of it here and let me know how you like being lumped in with all the other terrorists and wacky extremists out there!  It didn’t work out so well in Missouri, but it didn’t take the Feds long to throw down the gauntlet, did it? Email DebV

This provides a little insight into the modern Marine Corp fighting terrorists. This is from a Reconnaissance Marine currently in Afghanistan. He talks like a Marine in the field-and he is worthy of our thoughts and prayers as are all of our military deployed in some God-forsaken place:
It's freezing here. I'm sitting on hard, cold dirt between rocks and shrubs at the base of the Hindu Kush mountains along the Dar 'yoi Pomir River watching a hole that leads to a tunnel that leads to a cave. Stake out, my friend, and no pizza delivery for thousands of miles. 
I also glance at the area around my ass every ten to fifteen seconds to avoid another scorpion sting. I've actually given up battling the chiggers and sand fleas, but them scorpions give a jolt like a cattle prod. Hurts like a bastard.  The antidote tastes like transmission fluid but God bless the Marine Corps for the five vials of it in my pack. 
The one truth the Taliban cannot escape is that, believe it or not, they are human beings, which means they have to eat food and drink water.  That requires couriers and that's where an old bounty hunter like me comes in handy. I track the couriers, locate the tunnel entrances and storage facilities, type the info into the handheld, shoot the coordinates up to the satellite link that tells the air commanders where to drop the hardware, we bash some heads for a while, then I track and record the new movement. 
It's all about intelligence. We haven't even brought in the snipers yet.  These scurrying rats have no idea what they're in for. We are but days away from cutting off supply lines and allowing the eradication to begin. 
I dream of bin Laden waking up to find me standing over him with my boot on his throat as I spit a bloody ear into his face and plunge my nickel-plated Bowie knife through his frontal lobe. But you know me. I'm a romantic. I've said it before and I'll say it again: This country blows, man. It's not even a country. There are no roads, there's no infrastructure, there's no government. This is an inhospitable, rockpit, shithole ruled by eleventh century warring tribes. There are no jobs here like we know jobs. 
Afghanistan offers two ways for a man to support his family: join the opium trade or join the army. That's it. Those are your options. Oh, I forgot, you can also live in a refugee camp and eat plum-sweetened, crushed beetle paste and squirt mud like a goose with stomach flu if that's your idea of a party. But the smell alone of those 'tent cities of the walking dead' is enough to hurl you into the poppy fields to cheerfully scrape bulbs for eighteen hours a day. 
I've been living with these Tajiks and Uzbeks and Turkmen and even a couple of Pushtins for over a month and a half now and this much I can say for sure: These guys, all of em, are Huns. Actual, living Huns. They LIVE to fight. It’s what they do. It’s ALL they do. 
They have no respect for anything, not for their families or for each other or for themselves. They claw at one another as a way of life. They play polo with dead calves and force their five-year-old sons into human cockfights to defend the family honor. Huns, roaming packs of savage, heartless beasts who feed on each others barbarism. Cavemen with AK  47's. Then again, maybe I'm just cranky. 
I'm freezing my ass off on this stupid hill because my lap warmer is running out of juice and I can't recharge it until the sun comes up in a few hours. 
Oh yeah! You like to write letters, right? Do me a favor.  Write a letter to CNN and tell Wolf and Anderson and that awful, sneering, pompous Aaron Brown to stop calling the Taliban 'smart.' They are not smart. I suggest CNN invest in a dictionary because the word they are looking for is 'cunning.' The Taliban are cunning, like jackals and hyenas and wolverines. They are sneaky and ruthless and, when confronted, cowardly. They are hateful, malevolent parasites who create nothing and destroy everything else. Smart. Pfft. Yeah, they're real
They've spent their entire lives reading only one book (and not a very good one, as books go) and consider hygiene and indoor plumbing to be products of the devil. They're still figuring out how to work a Bic lighter. Talking to a Taliban warrior about improving his quality of life is like trying to teach an ape how to hold a pen; eventually he just gets frustrated and sticks you in the eye with it. 
OK, enough. Snuffle will be up soon so I have to get back to my hole.  Covering my tracks in the snow takes a lot of practice but I'm good at it. Please, I tell you and my fellow Americans to turn off the TV sets and move on with your lives. 
The story line you are getting from CNN and other news agencies is utter bullshit and designed not to deliver truth but rather to keep you glued to the screen through the commercials. We've got this one under control.  The worst thing you guys can do right now is sit around analyzing what we're doing over here because you have no idea what we're doing and, really, you don't want to know. We are your military and we are doing what you sent us here to do. 
You wanna help? Buy Bonds, America.
