Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee

The earth belongs to the white man. There is no future outside of his world.

Has anyone seen this HBO movie? This was one of the hardest movies I'd ever seen. Watching the systematic destruction of a people over the span of 20 years was horrible. Based on the book by Dee Brown which tells the stories of several tribes, the movie centers around the Sioux. How their culture and life was taken way. Hunters put on reservations and forced to become farmers on land that couldn't grow anything. Some of the best chapters in the movie were about Chief Sitting Bull. The government tried everything they could to break him and never did. And because of that he's become the symbol of Indian resistance. But it was the slaughter at Wounded Knee creek that broke me. Watching men, women and children gunned down. Babies freezing to death in their dead mothers arms. It was the event that really signaled the end. I recommend everyone watch this movie and read this book.

And, may I add, that Adam Beach is one of the best actors today. This young man, I think, is going to really break out. And soon.

Star Trek Movie News 8

TrekMovie is reporting that Mike Vogel is in the running, and may be the front runner, to play the most famous Captain on television. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet. He's the perfect age for the role. 28. That's in the age range they want Kirk to be. Maybe. I don't know.

And here's something quite interesting.
IESB are reporting that the villain is to be a Romulan and that the plot involves Romulans going back in time to destroy Earth. has confirmed that elements of the original AICN rumor report are true (such as the inclusions of the Romulans and time-travel), however a source tells us that much of the original AICN story is still pure speculation. has picked up on a new plot element. We have previously reported that even though the film is not (as originally rumored) an ‘Academy Movie,’ it still will involve at least some scenes at the famed Starfleet Academy. can now confirm that one of those scenes will show James T. Kirk’s solution to the famous Kobayahsi Maru ‘no win scenario’ simulation (first described in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan).
Hillary Clinton has proposed a plan that would have the federal government give every child born in the U.S. a $5,000 bond for the future.
The New York senator did not offer any estimate of the total cost of such a program or how she would pay for it. Approximately 4 million babies are born each year in the United States.
Let's see, $5,000 x 4,000,000 = $20,000,000,000/yr. Gee, I wonder how she we would pay for this? She wants us to pay for peoples health care and their future. When will one of the Republican candidates stand up and confront her about this? It's scary how we're just sitting back and saying nothing. Also, I wonder how many more unwanted babies will be born because of this? You can tell parents that they want be getting the money, but it's the stupid one's who will be having the babies for the cash and something tells me they're not going to understand.

Hippocrates once said, "Art is long, life is short".

Cpl. Jeremy David Allbaugh lived a short life. But, he was immortalized recently in acrylics by a Lance Cpl. Jamieson who painted a mural in his honor.
"I feel sad because it is for him, but it makes me happy because I can still do something for him," said Lance Cpl. Jamieson. "I thought about it during the ceremony in the chapel. I looked up at the stained glass windows and I thought 'I should do something like that'".

Along with help from family, a fellow Marine and a Morale, Wefare and Recreation manager, Jamieson had the paint and tools needed.

"I would paint eight or nine hours in the gym and time would fly by," Jamieson said.

Cpl. Jeremy David Allbaugh, 21 years old from Luther, Oklahoma, was killed by a roadside bomb on July 5, 2007 while conducting combat operations in Qaim, Iraq.

"He believed very strongly in what our country's doing," said his mother, Jenifer Allbaugh. "They were doing good things over there, and we don't see that in the news or media. There's a lot of progress being made. I wish more people would talk to our boys who are in it and not our politicians because they see it firsthand".

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

Ahmadinejad, U.N. & W.W. III

Okay, I watched A-Jad's speech at the U.N. Now, could someone please tell me what the hell he was talking about? He's going on about Iran being a peace loving nation that respects human life and wants to form a "fraternity of peace" or whatever it was. He tried to paint a picture of rainbows and unicorns of compassion and brotherhood and as anyone with an I.Q. above 90 knows, that's a lie. Then he launches into a strange rant about W.W.II and God returning. Was anyone else worried about that. I mean, this man believes the 12th Imam, the Mahdi, is returning soon and that if he can help it along he'll do just that. Armageddon people. Was this some sort of veiled threat?

From Glenn Beck's show yesterday that's very important
But the point is, we must stop pretending that this man`s threats are empty. When I was about 30 years old and I`m trying to figure out life, I picked up and bought a copy of "Mein Kampf" for the first time. I didn`t read it for Hitler`s propaganda. I knew who that guy was. I read it to answer one question that had been bothering me since I was a kid: Did the Germans know what Hitler was planning on doing? The answer, unfortunately, was yes.

And while I know it`s hard to admit, some day the world may very well look back at us with the same question I had when I read "Mein Kampf." Did they know? Then they`ll watch Ahmadinejad`s interviews, they`ll read his speeches, they`ll listen to his threats, and they will wonder why, in the famous words of Edmund Burke, why did good men do nothing?

Bill & Hil Kill Story

GQ Magazine has killed a negative story it was planning on running about Hillary Clinton after aids threatened to cut accesses to her husband. It's kind of scary that 1) they would even attempt this and 2) they have enough power to actually pull it off.

Stupid People Piss Me Off

The MIT student who walked into Logan International Airport wearing a computer circuit board and wiring on her sweat shirt claimed it was harmless artwork. But to troopers who arrested her at gunpoint, it was a fake bomb.

Nineteen-year-old Star Simpson was charged Friday with possessing a hoax device. Her attorney described the charge as offbase and "almost paranoid,"
Paranoid? Someone walks into an airport, with what looks like a bomb on their chest, and this piece of human waste wants what, them to just ignore it? Art? Please. The Mona Lisa is art. Michaelangelo's David is art. This is a brain dead idiot who wants attention.

A-Jad At Columbia

U.S. military? Stay off our campus. Minute Men? We don't like your racist hate-speech. Adolf Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, we embrace you with open arms and "open minds". And when you start to attack President Bush, we'll applaud and cheer.

Master Of None has a really good post up about this.
The primary difference between enemies and opponents is that the latter need to be given a fair hearing, reasoned with, and respected, whereas the former simply need to be defeated. Failing to treat Iranian President Ahmadinejad as their enemy demonstrates that Columbia University is either delusional, misguided, or itself an enemy of America rather than just an opponent.

A Terrorist At Ground Zero?

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wants to visit ground zero during his trip to NYC? How in the fuck could anyone in our government consider, even for one damned second, of letting this terrorist piece of scum in the country, let alone at ground zero. Thank God his request was rejected. One question. Why did it take so long to tell him no?
NYPD officials confirmed in a statement that earlier this month
Earlier this month? It took 19 damn days to say no? It should have taken no more than 19 seconds.

Could you imagine the photo op he would have been afforded had he'd been allowed to go there. A photo of a man who's celebrated the attacks and the assholes who carried them out standing at the site of greatest victory of Islamic jihad. Talk about a coup for terrorism.

The love of Megan Ewens's life arrived at Arlington National Cemetery on July 7, 2006. His ashes inside a small wooden box, the box inside a coffin, the coffin draped with an American flag and carried on a caisson pulled by six black horses.

Lt. Forrest P. Ewens had shipped out for Afghanistan in March of that same year. His wife, being the same rank in the Army, understood the risks, telling a colonel at Fort Drum, N.Y., that if anything happened to her husband, she didn't want to hear about it from a stranger.

On June 6, 2006 Lt. Ewens and Sgt. Ian T. Sanchez were killed when ATV struck an IED while on combat operation in Pech River Valley, Afghanistan.

A few weeks before his death, Lt. Ewens called his wife from an Afghan mountain to inform her that his unit had been subsisting on melted snow and rations and that he had been writing his impressions down in a notebook he carried.

"This was the love of her life," Megan Ewens's mother said. "They were so well-matched and made such a good team. We couldn't ask for a better son-in-law."

Star Trek Movie News 7

Finally, some news. Model/acress Zoe Saldana has been tapped to play Lt. Uhura.
The first one comes courtesy of John K. Idiots in San Francisco, big surprise, disrupt a 9/11 memorial at SFSU. I haven't watched the video because of the whole dial-up/big video file thing.

The second is Mr. Streisand wished radio listeners a "Happy 9/11". I guess in the "September 11 is a lie" world, it's a day to celebrate.
Right, oh, yeah, Happy 9/11!... Celebrate the day, right
I'm just wondering. What is it about Hollywood that makes people so stupid? Glenn Beck asked this last night. Is it the town that makes them dumb or are dumb people just attracted to it?

Bad News Is Good News For Democrats

We're already had high ranking Democrats admit that bad news in Iraq is good for them and their power grab, and today we had Sen. John Murtha confirm and make sure we didn't forget it.
Murtha also predicted that, despite the unpopularity of Congress, Democrats will make broad gains in next year’s election because voters are upset with the war.

"People are frustrated, but you're going to see a big Democratic increase," he told reporters after his speech. "I think we'll pick up 40 [to] 50 seats."
And that's what's important. Those seats in Congress.

Put Your Steel Collar On

Here we go again. Swedish cartoonist, Lars Vilks, is under police protection and in hiding for his life because he dared to insult the great, merciful profit Muhammad. After he drew his cartoon and it was published al-Qaeda in Iraq leader, Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, offered a bounty of $100,000 for his death. An extra $50,000 should he be "slaughtered like a lamb" and another $50,000 to the person who killed the editor of the newspaper who dared publish the cartoon.
We are calling for the assassination of cartoonist Lars Vilks who dared insult our Prophet ... and we announce a reward during this generous month of Ramadan
Thank Allah we're dealing with rash and sane people.

New Fall T.V. Season

I was looking at the new shows for the fall lineup this year and noticed that not a single show coming one looks any good. And they haven't looked good for the past 3-4 years. It's gotten so bad that the only good show on network t.v. anymore is L&O:SVU. The only good stations anymore are USA and Sci Fi and their schedules are so screwed up that it's almost six months between seasons sometimes. Or, in the case of Battlestar Galactica, almost a year.

And I love that network television is dipping it's fingers into science fiction. But none of them are any good. Never seen Heroes and don't plan on it. Journeyman, Moonlight, New Amsterdam, The Sarah Conner Chronicles and Bionic Woman. None interest me in the slightest. I recently watched the pilot for Bionic Woman. Crap. The only good thing about it was the fact that two of the stars of BSG were in it. That's it. Network television sucks.

On other thing. Why can't t.v. execs come up with their own shows? Why are they bringing all these British shows to America? Are they really that lazy or stupid?

I totally forgot about they yesterday. God, it don't seem like four years already. Thank you those of you who've stuck with me.
O.J. Simpson has been denied bail after being charged with armed robbery in Las Vegas. I smell a set up. We all know that Bush hates black people. I bet he set "Juice" up to take heat away from Iraq. Damn him. If convicted of these trumped up charges, O.J. could be looking at 30 years in prison. Can't we pay someone to shank his ass in jail?

And yes, I stole Perez Hilton's style.

Richard Ramey always knew what he was going to be. Once, while in the third grade, his teacher asked him what he wanted to do when he grew up. His response? "I'll go to war and fight" Concerned by his answer, his teacher called his mother, Julie Ramey. She told her "No, that's my son".

SSgt. Ramey was killed when insurgents attacked his and other convoys in Mahmudiyah, Iraq.

"Richard loved to do his job. No matter where it would take him," said his mother. "He really felt deeply that he wanted to protect people that couldn't protect themselves"

In a statement released through Fort Knox, the Ramey family said, "He was adventurous and smart, combining both qualities in what he did for the Army. We knew his work was dangerous but also knew he wouldn’t have wanted to do anything else".

What If

September 11, 2001

Six years later and far too many people have forgotten that day. Not the events. We'll never forget the events. But rather the feelings they had. Six years later and people like Kim Jong Ill and Ahmadinejad are seen as comedic. People we should make jokes about. I'm guilty of it myself. We see or hear a tape by bin Laden or Zawahiri and it's "Oh, another tape. What crazy thing is he spouting this time?" I'm guilty of that as well. Six years later and we've become too complacent and lazy. And when we do try to be vigilant it's called profiling and we're called racist. We will be attacked again. It will happen. And we're going be asking ourselves why. How did this happen? Who dropped the ball?. And my answer, our answer, should be to look in the mirror.

Too Little Too Late?

Clinton's campaign, one of several Democratic committees that Hsu raised money for or donated to, also has decided to increase its screening of major fund-raisers, requiring them to submit to the extraordinary additional step of a criminal background check, campaign aides said

Huh. Didn't someone already say this should have been going on from the start?
Please. When someone gives you that much money, it's not hard to do a background check one them. In fact, it's probably the smart thing to do.
I Swear, I Never Knew
It's amazing how little coverage this story is getting in the main stream press. Two words. Jack Abramoff.

Listen To Them

Because, as everyone knows, Democrats in Congress know more than the Generals on the ground. Don't believe me? Just ask them and they'll tell you.


I watched some of Gen. Petraeus's testimony before Congress today and I learned three things.

1. As I said above, Democrats know better than everyone else.
2. The hard Left consider Gen. Petraeus to be the lap dog of the Bush administration.
3. Gen. Petraeus didn't need to bother going before Congress because the "open minded" Democrats had already made up their minds.

What Did He Say?

Oh, Rudy. Why? Huckabee is looking more and more like my guy. He seems to be contradicting himself all over the place. He says that illegal immigration isn't a crime nor should it be but says that wants to build the fence to keep them out. I'm confused. If it's not a crime and shouldn't be a crime then why not let them come in as they see fit? I don't get it. Also, how can you call it "illegal" if it's not a crime?

You see, I have more problems with this then I do his stance on abortion. Because despite what some in this country like think, the borders are a front on the war on terror. We have no idea who's crossing. And they're only argument concerning this is "do you have any proof a terrorist has cross the border?". Alan Colmes. That, my friends, is a weak argument. There are near 20,000,000 illegals in this country. We have no idea who they are or where they're from. Can they give me a 100% guarantee that of those 20,000,000 there isn't one? No? Didn't think so.

35 years old from Ferriday, Louisiana

August 20, 2005

Sgt. Partridge was killed by an IED that exploded near his vehicle in Baghdad, Iraq.

There isn't that much information about Sgt. Partridge so I though I would share some of the memories that his friends and family have of him.

"I remember Partridge from basic training and AIT. He was a very quiet guy who had a good sense of humor. I remember asking him why he joined, and he told me it was so he could take care of his family and give them a better life. I would have deployed with him any day, he was one of the good guys I graduated with. He will not be forgotten. God Bless."

"Todd was one of the best men I have ever met and I will always have great memories and admiration for him! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family!"

"I will never forget you and those awful eighteen weeks at Fort Leonard Wood. You are in every sense of the term, 'A HERO'"

"Todd was such a quite, solid person. He never demanded the attention of those around him. I remember him always just smiling while everyone else at our LARGE FAMILY get togethers made noise. I could get a hug from him, but I had to ask for it. He never assumed anything. I loved making him hug me.

Todd was a solid, faithful husband, father and man in every respect. He did what had to be done in all areas of his life. He died doing what he knew to be his job in this life. Not that he wanted to die but he wanted to serve whatever the cost might be. He knew that freedom is not free and wanted to pay his part for that freedom for himself, his wife and girls.

I have nothing but love and respect for Todd's memory and will always proudly and thankfully count him among my nephews that adore. His memory will always be honored. I thank God that He brought Todd into our family. He left his mark on it just as he did everywhere he went."

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

Shocked I tell you. Shocked.

Is anyone buying this? I mean, come on. I can see the steam rising of this. One of the most corrupt president we've ever had and he wants us to believe that A) he didn't know his wife had received money from a criminal and B) that he was shocked when he find this out?
You could have knocked me over with a straw, especially when I heard the L.A. people had been allegedly looking for him for 15 years when he was in plain view
Please. When someone gives you that much money, it's not hard to do a background check one them. In fact, it's probably the smart thing to do.
Now, in this country, we have to have a license to drive. We have to have a license to hunt and fish. We have to have a license to get married. So why is it that any retard is allowed to have children?

New Signs Of Socialism

Back in July I wrote a post called American Socialism that talked about how this country is moving that way. Well, John Edwards has just reveled that his universal healthcare plan would fit right at home in Cuba. In it, every American would be required to visit a doctor. No exceptions. The government knows whats best for you.
If you are going to be in the system, you can't choose not to go to the doctor for 20 years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK.

The whole idea is a continuum of care, basically from birth to death
Well, I guess I just wouldn't have healthcare because the government isn't going to tell me I have to go to a doctor. And here I though John Edwards was "pro-choice".

One Year Later

Wednesday Hero Blogroll

One year ago I was forced to create the Wednesday Hero Blogroll by Greta. Well, not forced, but talked into. I wasn't sure I wanted to. I was quite happy having it as a small post I did on the two blogs and leaving it at that. But she coerced and threatened and I broke. I put the post up and waited to see if anyone would join. Blogrolls, after all, are a dime a dozen. Everyone and their mother has one. But, much to my surprise, people started to join. For a while there I had three people. Yankee Mom, Bear Creak Ledger and Mail Call. And I was happy with that. I felt that was a success. Then more joined and pretty soon I had ten blogs. And I was surprised by that. I would have been happy to stop there. Ten blogs was more than I though would ever join up. And now, one year later, well, you can count them. I never, in a million years, thought it would have taken off the way it has. But I guess it goes to show that if it's worthwhile people will want to be a part of it.

You know, I didn't start Wednesday Hero, and subsequently the blogroll, for any kind of praise. But that's what I've gotten from it. I've gotten a lot of thanks from different members of the blogroll for doing this. But I think the best payoff from doing this has been from the people who knew the soldiers that I've profile as friends and some who were family members telling me thanks. I'm not a touchy-feely, warm fuzzy feeling type of person. But when that happens it can't help but make you feel good.

Through all the troubles I've had with it, and the members know them all too well, it's been worth it. Anytime you can draw as much attention to these brave men and women, and what they do for us, as possible it's a good thing.

This video was created by Kathi over at Mail Call. I didn't ask her to do this. She took it upon herself to work on this. After you watch it, head over and give her the thanks she deserves.
