Project Valour-IT

Project Valour-IT is underway. Head over and help out if your able to. Now, technically I'm supposed to be stumping for Army, since I blog for an Army centric site, but stump for all military personnel. Head over to see how you can help.

They Have Too Much Profit

So, the insurance companies aren't the big bad profiteering bogeyman we've been lead to believe?

This song stirred up a little controversy when it was released. A dance mix of The King? Some hated it, I love it. Paul Oakenfold could remix an Opera and make it cool.

Crisis In America

President Obama declares swine flu a national emergency.

"Never allow a crisis to go to waste. They are opportunities to do big things" - Rahm Emanuel. I wonder what big thing they're going to want to do with this?

The Constitution Is a Charter Of Negative Liberties

But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can't do to you. Says what the federal government can't do to you, but doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.
- Barack Obama

Glenn Beck FTW

It's amazing how big Glenn Beck has become. His radio show was a success, but THAT well known. CNN brought him onto Headline News, but they screwed that show up by not utilizing him to his full potential. Then he goes to FNC and seemingly overnight becomes one of the most influential personalities in media. In just a few shorts months he's exposed Obama's Czars & advisers and helped bring ACORN to light. And those are just two examples. Beck is exactly what many Americans were looking for. Someone who doesn't sugarcoat the news and isn't afraid of the powers that be. Beck has become the kick in the ass others in the media have been needing for a long time.

Wise Sage Of The Day

"I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer."
- Benjamin Franklin

They Own The Media & I Want No Part

I had this post worked out in my head, knew how I wanted to start and what I wanted to say. But when I finally sat down to type it all out it all went away. That happens to me a lot. So I'll just have to start in the middle. We have a government that's actively targeting a media outlet trying damage them however they can. Even going so far as to send their attack dogs, Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod, out this weekend to inform other media outlets to ignore FNC and to not treat them like "real" news. I find this all just a little disturbing. And, like the good little lapdogs they are, the rest of the media just eat it up. They cheer lead for the policies of this administration and ignore stories, until they've been forced to finally mention them. ACORN and Van Jones for example. Another example is Anita Dunn. Has anyone seen other news outlets talk about her comments on Mao Tse Tung? And chances are you never will. Media outlets in this country have become nothing more than mouthpieces for the Obama administration, which is why I have made the conscious decision to block CNN, HLN & MSNBC from my television. I can no longer, in good conscience, watch them knowing that they have no problem being manipulated like puppets.

CFL Bulbs Extra

Here's a tip for those of you who use these things. Skip the "Soft White" or whatever other kind they sale and pick up "Daylight". They are the best bulbs I've ever seen. The light they put out is crystal clear and makes everything look much better than the dingy yellowish light that other bulbs put out.

Anita Dunn Exposed

Now, imagine someone working inside the White House were to come out and say that one of their two favorite philosophers, someone that they turn to, was Adolf Hitler. What do you think would happen? Would the American people be a little upset and demand that that person should be let go? I think they would. And they would be right in doing so. So, I have to ask if White House communications director Anita Dunn will have that job much longer after this video has surfaced of her saying just those things about Mao Tse Tung. The same Mao Tse Tung who was responsible for the deaths of up to 70,000,000 people. Look at that number again. I'll even spell it out for you. Seventy Million.

One of the comments on that site I linked to is "Shocking video". But is it really? I mean, it seems that with each new day something new comes out about the people President Obama has placed in his administration. So I ask again. Is it really that shocking? Because it's not to me. This seems to be par for the course with him. He claims he's not a Socialist or Communist, yet he surrounds himself with people who seem to be. People who praise Mao or Chavez or Castro or Che.

Christmas Design Update

Woo-Hoo. I got it done. Didn't take as long as I thought it would, but I figured out the HTML and I got the design done and ready to put up on Nov. 27. Still looks as good as it did last year.

Free Money? Give Me Some

A woman being driven around in a rented limousine pulled up at a coat store and announced she'd won the lottery and would pay for everyone's purchases, police said, but she ended up causing a riot when customers realized it was a hoax.

What the hell is wrong with people? Are we so greedy and stupid that the second we hear that "free" money is available we turn into slobbering animals? I'd like to think that most of us, if something like this were to happen, would stop and think about it before we go crazy.
That's when angry customers, realizing they weren't getting free coats, began throwing merchandise on the floor and grabbing clothes without paying for them, Nace said.

"Everybody was like, 'I still want my free stuff,' and that started the riot," he said. "It looks like (Hurricane) Katrina went through the store."
Pisses me off.

This Week's Post Was Suggested By Beth

Cpl. Benjamin S. Kopp
Cpl. Benjamin S. Kopp
21 years old from Rosemont, Minnesota
3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment
July 18, 2009
U.S. Army

Ben Kopp has been a fighter since the day he was born. When he was born his mother was given morphine to stop her labor so the doctors could deliver him via a cesarean section. But it caused his heart rate to slow and when he was born he wasn't breathing. But he recovered to the amazement of everyone. "Ben has always been up for a challenge," said his mother, Jill Stephenson. "He came into the world a fighter."

On July 10, 2009, Cpl. Benjamin Kopp was wounded in the Helmand province of Afghanistan. He was hit in the popliteal artery in his knee and the loss of blood caused him to go into cardiac arrest on the operating table at a battalion surgical center. As a result of his injuries, Cpl. Kopp developed swelling in his brain and was put into an induced coma to try and save his life. But he died on July 18.

But his service didn't end with his passing. Upon his death, by his own desire, his organs were donated to people in need, saving their lives.

"Please continue to say prayers for all of the men and women who so proudly serve our country," Stephenson wrote online. "Ben had a deep love of country and has just left a legacy of heroism for all of us to cherish. Be as proud of him as I was as his mother."

That's A Pretty Good Idea

Watching Glenn Beck and he had author Vince Flynn on. They were talking about President Obama's unearned Nobel Peace Prize and Flynn made a suggestion that, really, everyone should be able to get behind. Since Obama's going to accept it, he should accept in the name of the men and women of the United States military and donate the prize money to the Gold Star Mothers. I don't agree with the committee giving him this award, but I could get behind that plan. Do something positive with it.

Project Valour-IT

It's that time once again. Project Valour-IT. It's always good to raise money to help our troops. Head over to see how you can help out. Now, Greta over at Hooah Wife asked her contributors, which includes myself, to sign up for the Army team being that her site is technically an Army site, so we are. But here are her exact words in her email.
To be a team and collect donations, write posts about it and talk smack about other armed forces during the competition
I can do those, except talk smack. See, I have a penchant for the Marines. So I can't smack talk them. But those sailor boys in the Navy, that's a whole other story :p No, seriously, head over and find out more.

State Of The Union 1985

My fellow citizens, this nation is poised for greatness. The time has come to proceed toward a great new challenge - a second American Revolution of hope and opportunity; a revolution carrying us to new heights of progress by pushing back frontiers of knowledge and space; a revolution of spirit that taps the soul of America, enabling us to summon greater strength than we've ever known; and a revolution that carries beyond our shores the golden promise of human freedom in a world of peace. - Ronald Wilson Reagan

It might be time for a third American Revolution because the government is destroying our country. We need someone to stand up and lead this country back to what we know it can be. But so long as there are stupid people electing stupid politicians into office, there will be no change. We can't fix the country unless we fix ourselves.
Are you fucking serious? What the hell has he done to deserve this? Actually, it's kind of fitting. They gave one to Jimmy Carter and Yasser Arafat, why not Obama.
There will be an outcry from those on the right who will say that Obama's nomination, made two weeks into his Presidency, is impossible to justify but I think such an outcry will sound like right-wing whining. The better response is simply to allow those on the left to explain what he did in his first two weeks as President that merited such recognition.

Sgt. Michael Egan
Sgt. Michael Egan
36 years old from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
104th Cavalry Regiment, 28th Infantry Division, Pennsylvania Army National Guard
September 19, 2005
U.S. Army

News of Egan’s death came to Pennsauken shortly after 6 a.m. Tuesday, Krista Egan, Sgt. Egan's sister-in-law, said. His mother, Irene, was on the telephone when an Army sergeant walked up to the door. "My mother-in-law was talking on the telephone to Mike’s wife, Maria, when he came. Maria had just got the news. The Army sergeant told my mother-in-law it was his first time notifying a family."

Sgt. Egan served in the Marine Corps for eight years, was a civilian for a year, then joined the National Guard. As a Marine, he had been previously served in Afghanistan.

"He was well-liked by everyone," Patrick Egan, Sgt. Egan's brother, said.

Sgt. Michael Egan was killed when an IED detonated near his vehicle while on patrol in Ramadi. Also killed in the attack were Spc. William Evans, 22, of Hallstead, PA, Spc. William Fernandez, 37, of Reading, PA and Lt. Mark Dooley of the Vermont National Guard.

We Are The World

On July of next year, Robert Rodriguez's prequel to one of the most bad ass movies off all time, Predator, will hit theaters. It will be called Predators and here are some of the details on the characters.

Cuchillo — A Mexican enforcer from a drug cartel with uzis strapped to his back. [character will be played by Danny Trejo]
Nikolai — A frightening bear of a Russian armed with a four-barreled gas-powered rotary machine gun.
Isabelle — A French "tough as nails woman armed with a sniper rifle".
Stans — A prisoner from San Quentin with a shaved head and a scorpion tattoo on his neck and armed with a prison made knife.
Mombasa — An African member of the Sierra Leon death squad.
Hanzo — A bad-ass Japanese Yakuza enforcer.
Edwin — A small unassuming man…formerly one of the FBI’s most-wanted.

You got the Mexican drug runner the French sniper the African, Russian, Japanese and two Americans. Is it me, or does this movie sound like a bad stereotypical United Nations?

Money Will Solve The Problem

Saturn's are no more? Quick, they need a multi-billion dollar bailout if they're going to survive. They need...what? Part of GM? Really? Huh.

CFL Bulbs Are A Trap

So, you're walking through Wal-Mart, or some other store because Wal-Mart is an evil corporation that exploits it's workers by not giving them health care, and you see a 3-pack of CFL bulbs for around $15. You think, "Wow, that's expensive." But then you see the benefits on the package. They're good for the environment. Well, no one want's be be compared to a Holocaust denier. Then you see they last between 5-7 years. You won't have to buy more for a LONG time. Then you read that they lower your energy bill. Hey, who can't afford to save some money? Right? So you grab them feeling pretty good about yourself. In fact, you get quite a few to fill up our entire house. Think of the savings. You exchange all your old non-green filament bulbs and the new CFL bulbs are better. Much brighter and things look clearer. Awesome. Cut to 2, not 5 or 7, years later and you've already had two bulbs go out. You have to travel almost 30 miles to Home Depot because it's the only place near you that you can take those green CFL bulbs to be recycled because you can't just throw them away for the chemicals in them. You also haven't seen even a penny in savings on your energy bill. And you're wondering where the benefits are. But of course you'll go buy another one for $7 because, like I said, they do make everything brighter and clearer and you've come to like that.

H1N1 Vaccine

Will you or your children be taking the H1N1 vaccine when it become available? I doubt I will. I haven't had a flu shot in years and I've only had the flu, maybe, twice in my life. I know the media and the government have tried to scare the crap out of us, and it's work to some extent on me, but I just don't feel all that threatened by it. Plus, you know there's going to be a shortage so I'll just save mine for someone who might need it. Also, do we really know what all the side effects may be? They tell us it's safe, but you'll have to forgive me if I have questions.
