Rush Limbaugh In The Hospital

Rush Limbaugh was rushed to a Hawaiian hospital on Wednesday with chest pains and was said to be in "serious condition". Here's some of the vile things I've seen on Twitter about this:

I hope Rush Limbaugh dies. I really do and I don't feel even the slightest bit bad for saying it.

Dear 2009: you have approximately 23.5 hours left to not suck, so sack up and LET RUSH LIMBAUGH DIE.

No one wants Rush Limbaugh to die. But they do want his doctors to fail.

Rush Limbaugh recovering in a Hawaii hospital. From the heavens a voice is heard to say... "Shit! I missed!"

That's just a small sample.

Sending GITMO detainees to Yemen, a country that's looking like the the next front in this war. Yeah, that's smart. I honestly don't think Obama has any idea what to do. Hell, he never did. The man is an epic failure, and we still three more damn years of him.


First Grade Fellatio

Why is Kevin Jennings still in the Obama administration? A quick word of warning, there is very explicit sexual wording in that link that describes oral sex between first grade boys.

Yeah, I'm a day early but I went ahead and put up my normal template.

Taking Back The Country

No, this post isn't about Conservatives taking back the country next year. Sorry. It's about the redman taking his land back from you White devils ;p Now if only the Lakota Sioux could get the land back that Mt. Rushmore was build on.

This Proves He Is A Muslim

The Obamas didn't go to church on Christmas. Stop the presses. No, actually, who cares? Since when did A)being a Christian and B)going to church become a requirement for being president? We have far more serious issues to concern ourselves with than whether or not our president goes to church. Of course I'm speaking as an Agnostic, so take that for what it's worth. Anyway, Democrats trying to shove as much crap down our throats before the 2010 election is something to concern ourselves with. A radical Islamic terrorist being able to sneak a chemical bomb onto a plane and try to use it to blow up said plane only to have the detonator malfunction. That is something to worry about. I know the majority of my readers lean more towards the Christian belief, and may not agree with me in some of my statements here, but I just don't care whether or not our president and his family attend church on Christmas. I'm sorry.
Friday, January 1, I will be going back to my normal layout but with a new header. It may just be my best one, if I do say so myself. I though about changing to a whole new layout, but I like the one I use.

Santa Was Bery, Bery Good To Me

Hope everyone had a great day yesterday. Mine was pretty good. It was only my mom and myself this year. One of my brothers and his family went up to Arkansas to be with their daughter and her family and no one else was able to make it down because of the snow storm that went through on Thursday. The brother that was to bring the turkey down was one of those who couldn't make it down, so we had no turkey but we had everything else. And I made a killing when it came to gifts. I didn't get my "Firefly" DVD boxset, :(, but I did get a giftcard so I ordered it, :) If you've never seen "Firefly" do so. One of the best shows ever made. I got two of the Dark Tower comics compilations. I need to order "The Long Road Home". I also got Stephen King's three latest books and "Serenity", which is the "Firefly" movie. And in the tradition of bizarre stocking gifts I got some Neosporin spray, a pocket word search book, a back scratcher and a staple remover. Even though there was no DVD boxset or turkey, and I couldn't turn on the Christmas lights because of the snow, it was a pretty good day. Now on to 2010.

Guys, never buy your girlfriend/wife a kitchen appliance for Christmas. Even if she asks for one. Buy it for her, but not as her Christmas gift. Bad move.

With only two days until Christmas, I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and to remind you to keep our men and women that are not able to be with their friends and families this time of year in your thoughts a prayers. They do so much without ever asking for anything in return.

Had a dental appointment today for my 6 month checkup. Had the exam, a cleaning and x-rays. Came to $187. Maybe that free government health care isn't looking so bad after all.

Need Some Help

The site that I've been using to host the Wednesday Hero posts, Ripway, has, for some unknown reason, suspended my account so I'm on the lookout for a new free file hosting site. If you know of one that's easy to use, doesn't use Flash and displays text files in the browser rather than making you download them could you let me know. Actually, the easy to use and doesn't use Flash aren't all that important but displaying files rather than download them is. When you have to download files from these sites it's just a big mess having to click this link then this link then another and so on. Plus the text doesn't display right for some reason. Things get jumbled and screwed up.

Keeping Score?

"He's making a list
Of those who can be bought
He's going find who's playing ball
And who's not
It's the Chicago way of politics, and it sucks"

It's only one small part of this article, but President Obama told Rep. DeFazio "Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother". Have you ever heard a president use this kind of rhetoric before, except maybe Nixon? Keeping score almost sounds like a threat of some sort.

Biggest Wednesday Hero Ever

I try to keep the Wednesday Hero posts as apolitical as possible, though I have done one politically motivated post in the past. Remember Casey Sheehan? But yesterday's post, while it did have a little politics in it, meant a great deal to a lot of people. And, as it turns out, it was the biggest Wednesday Hero post ever. Mudville Gazette has a list of all the milblogs that participated and sites that covered the story. Even Michelle Malkin covered it. I love Michelle Malkin, and now she knows who I am. Well, okay, she doesn't actually know who I am but let me fantasize. My numbers even went up. My average pages views is around 17 a day, yesterday that shot up to 41. I've made it. I said let me fantasize. There is, however, an error with yesterdays post. I indicated that it was written by Greta when it was in fact written by Laughing Wolf over at Blackfive.

Wednesday Hero: Milblogs Go Silent Today

This Weeks Post Was Suggested & Written By Greta

This week's Wednesday Hero is both an individual, and a group. The group we honor are the milblogs: the military blogs, spouse blogs, and support blogs who bring you the news and information you can get nowhere else. The information and news that matter to you. The individual we honor today is C. J. Grisham.

Army Master Sgt. C. J. Grisham has always led from the front, from combat that earned him the Bronze Star with V device, to doing right by the men he led. His honesty won him readership and respect, from the White House on down. Yet, when he stood up for his children in school, his command did not stand by him. You can read more at Military Times to get the full story.

Please donate via PayPal; or you can log into PayPal on your own, go to the send money page, and put in his email: dj_chcknhawk AT yahoo DOT com; or, you can send donations directly to:

Grisham Legal Fund
c/o Redstone Federal Credit Union
220 Wynn Drive
Huntsville, AL 35893
Please write "Grisham Legal Fund" in the memo line if you use this option.

Milblogs have been a vital link in getting accurate news and information about the military, and military operations, to you. Today, many milblogs are gone and others are under attack from within and without. Today, you have the chance to imagine a world without milblogs, and to do something about it. Make your voice heard by writing your congressional representatives and others, and by making donations as you see fit.

The battle for freedom of speech and the marketplace of ideas is fought on many fronts and in many ways. Without your help, the battle may well be lost.

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.

Blood, Toil, Tears & Sweat

We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I will say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: victory. Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival. Let that be realized; no survival for the British Empire, no survival for all that the British Empire has stood for, no survival for the urge and impulse of the ages, that mankind will move forward towards its goal.
Replace "the British Empire" with "America" and this should have been what Obama said in his recent speech at West Point.

That's Not What I Wanted

Hanukkah is now upon us and Christmas is less than two weeks away and it got me to thinking. What's the best and worst gift you've ever gotten for the holiday? I can't say what the best gift is, because I don't remember all of them, one does stand out. All I wanted was a game for my Nintendo called "Back To The Future II & III". This was in 1990, so I was 11-years-old. I opened my gift to find the game I wanted and I remember running around the house yelling "I believe in Santa, I believe in Santa." So I went to go play it and I hated it. The game was no fun. I also can't say what my worst gift was because I don't think I've ever gotten one. Except may clothes. No one likes clothes. But one of the oddest ones that stands out was last year my mom got me a S'mores/hot cocoa kit. Had the graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate, two packs of cocoa and two snowmen mugs. But I think this was more of a gag gift. At least I hope it was.

Ah, Nostalgia

Anyone here remember Mr. Wizard? I was watching a show on Science Channel yesterday called "Sci-Fi Science" with Dr. Michio Kaku and it got me to thinking about Mr. Wizard. Or more precisely "Mr. Wizard's World". I loved that show. I use to watch it every day. It still remember trying my first "scientific experiment" that I learned from him. Putting a piece of tape on a balloon and being able to push a needle into it without it popping. I just thought that was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. Apparently, Science Channel airs reruns of the show. I need to look it up and see.

Are You Serious?

Is this really what our Congress is wasting their time on? Collage football? Is there nothing more important they should be doing?
"With all due respect, I really think we have more important things to spend our time on," Barrow said before the vote...
Thank you, Rep. Barrow. Is it any wonder their approval rating is around 25%?

Criminals In The White House

No, not the elected ones or the ones brought in as their Czars. But rather party guests. How did a convicted felon get an invitation to the White House state dinner? While the so called "journalists" focus on the two media whores that were at the party they ignore Bob Creamer.

Glenn Beck proves that one man can make a difference. Just imagine how much of the crap our government is doing would still be in the dark if it weren't for Beck.
Monday, December 7, 2009


Mr. Vice President, Mr. Speaker, members of the Senate and the House of Representatives: Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. And while this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or of armed attack.

USS California

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Japanese Government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya.

Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.

Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam.

Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.

Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island.

And this morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

USS Nevada

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

But always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

USS Shaw

I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces—with the unbounding determination of our people—we will gain the inevitable triumph—so help us God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7th, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.

USS Arizona Memorial

4 battleships sunk; 4 battleships damaged; 2 destroyers sunk; 1 destroyer damaged; 1 other ship sunk; 3 other ships damaged; 3 cruisers damaged; 188 aircraft destroyed; 155 aircraft damaged; 4 midget subs sunk; 1 midget sub run aground; 9 submariners killed; 55 airmen killed; 57 civilians killed; 35 civilians wounded; 1,247 military wounded; 2,345 military killed

Merry Christmas From The Family by Robert Earl Keene
Recently, a new set of Rules Of Engagement came down to our troops in Afghanistan. And they're not too happy about them. The Times only has a few listed, but these thing seem dumb if not down right dangerous. They have to warn people prior to searches, they can't search at night or do surprise searches, they can't engage the enemy unless they're getting ready to attack and they can't engage a terrorist unless they spot them actually setting an IED. So, essentially, they have to tell the Taliban when and where they're going so they hide or run and hope to God that they have a faster trigger finger. SSG_E has been following this, so if you happen to have a website that lists all the new ROE could you pass it along?

Semper Fi

Here's an article on the first group of Marines that will be deployed to Afghanistan under President Obama's planned surge.
Camp Lejeune’s 1st Battalion, 6th Marines, “will deploy in the near future,” said Col. David Fuquea, chief of staff for Lejeune’s 2nd Marine Division. He declined to say when the unit will arrive in theater, but Marine officials at the Pentagon said the first unit will deploy before Dec. 25.
Okay people, we're just three weeks away from Christmas. It's time to make out your lists. What do you want for Christmas?

I want Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" comic books, "Firefly" and "Serenity" DVDs, I want an Arsenal hat and a Dinosaur. A real one, not that fake plastic thing I got when I was 10. Still PO'd about that.

It's that time again. Just click on your state to find a local drop-off location near you.
President Obama is set to finally announce his decision on Afghanistan in a speech tonight from West Point Military Academy. A decision that's been three months in the making. While Afghanistan was falling apart and 176 American troops died, our president was deliberating on what to do by playing some golf, calling out Fox News, stumping for the Olympics and focusing on Health Care.
