Trying to Keep Christmas Well

Dicken's "A Christmas Carol" is probably my most favorite story. Each year I read it or watch it (George C. Scott is in my opinion the best) to remind myself to keep Christmas well.

This year has been especially hard. I was even trying to reach out to the freshly minted ex-wife and be kind at Christmas. She hasn't made it easy.

My Dad died a year and half ago and I hadn't cried. My wife left me for another woman and we divorced and I didn't cry. That's odd. I am a crier you see. Last week end we were doing prisoner exchange. "Walk towards you Mother." Her bitchy little control freak self never makes it easy. Her girl friend seems to have to always be there and the ex always puts up attitude to prove how much of an asshole I am. Anyway. I was trying to keep the Christmas Spirit. She was being a bitch and by the time I got home... Well I guess it was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I started to cry. It roared for 40 minutes. You know what? After I stopped I felt cleansed. Like after a good hot shower.

Yeah I'm a crier and I'll probably live longer for it.

In the long run maybe she gave me an unexpected Gift. She feels that Christmas is a "Festival of Greed". But no. It's a festival of Giving and Loving and Kindness. Even in the face of Scroogy
attitudes and down right meanness. That's when it really counts.

So here's a Christmas wish from me to you (and her too). That the Season finds you keeping Christmas well. Celebrate with random acts of kindness and and unthinkable Love. Without having to be visited by ghosts.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night.

Call of Duty 4- The Lost Weekend

I finally got "Call of Duty 4" to work relatively well on the 'ol computer. After spending a week loading and reloading it, downloading drivers, updating DirectX and buying a new goddamned video card. Attention NIVIDA owners. Download driver 1.6909 and everything will be all right.

I got everything running yesterday at about 4 AM. Starting playing the online multiplayer game and took breaks to clean the house. By 1 AM Sunday, the house was spotless. I took a combat nap and was up again at 4 AM again. Have to remember to buy food today.

A hope and a prayer that our Troops overseas do not have to spend their Christmas like this.

Putin Says- "Pimp My MiG"

Technically, "Pimp my Sukhoi". On November 25, 2007, the Russian Air Force accepted it's first batch of upgraded Sukhoi-24 fighter bombers. The Su-25 is the Soviet response to the American F-111. Having been in service for 32 years, it now sports the latest electronics and gadgets. Flat screen instruments, GPS and smart bombs are just some of the improvements.

While the upgraded Sukhoi is another step in Russian President Putin's path to making Russia a military superpower again, it also gives credence to another concern in the West. Take a look at this MiG-25.To prevent capture or destruction during Desert Storm, the Iraqis buried this MiG-25. Designed in the 1960's it was long feared as a "premier" fighter. It has since been reduced to an airborne target for Western fighters. Or so we thought. The MiG pictured in the picture above looks like a MiG-25 but it has been "pimped" as well. Old on the outside, everything inside is new. Electronics, engines, weapons. All courtesy of the French. This gives rise to speculation about how helpful the French have been.

Consider the plight of the Iranian F-14 Tomcats. Back in the 1970's the U.S. sold a bunch of Tomcats to the Shah of Iran. He was deposed and the planes fell into the hands of the Mullahs. Rumors abound of how the American technicians sabotaged the weapon systems before they were kicked out of the country. Coupled with a parts embargo by the U.S. this reduced the Iranian F-14 fleet to museum pieces. The last time they were used in combat was during the Iran/Iraq war of 1980 and even then they were used as airborne controllers rather than weapons.
In light of the upgrade of the Sukhoi and the story of the "Buried MiG", a question has to asked. Have the Iranians upgraded their Tomcats? Intelligence estimates are still guarded. A F-14 "pimped" by the French (or Russians) poses a real challenge to the U.S. and her allies.

300- Now with Cats

Red Chinese Sub Surprises USS Kitty Hawk

November 10, 2007-Oh shit! The aircraft carrier U.S.S. Kitty Hawk (CV-63) was in the Pacific, conducting an exercise with her battle group. On day two of the exercise she got a rude surprise from an uninvited guest.

A Song class submarine of the Chinese navy penetrated the defenses of the battle group and surfaced within visual range of the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk. The sub had remained undetected throughout it's approach. This placed the U.S. carrier well within the range of the sub's Yu-4 torpedoes and her Yingji-82 anti-ship missiles.

The Song class is a recent Chinese design with the flag ship first putting to sea on 25 May, 1994 (pennant number 320). The Chinese Navy has launched three of these boats, the last one in November 2003.

The advanced design of the sub, some intelligence officials have noted has benefitted from the transfer of U.S. techonolgy to China during the Clinton Administration.

The incident led to tense diplomatic exchanges, with shaken American diplomats demanding to know why the submarine was "shadowing" the U.S. fleet while Beijing pleaded ignorance and dismissed the affair as coincidence.

The U.S. Navy has been given a serious wake up call.

My Husband is Staying at Disneyland

Anaheim, Calif.- Disneyland temporarily shut down the popular "The Pirates of the Caribbean" ride when park officials noticed a woman pouring an unknown powder into the water. When questioned, the woman said it was "baby powder".

It is suspected that this is another example of visitors leaving the ashes of their loved ones at the popular amusement park.
Disneyland Resorts spokesman Rob Doughty said he couldn't confirm that.

"It used to happen every once in a while at the Haunted Mansion, but now it's happening more."

Without written permission, it's a misdemeanor violation of the state Health and Safety Code to scatter human ashes on private property, but enforcement is difficult. Officials say the ashes pose no health threat.

"I can tell you that we do get people from time to time asking for permission to sprinkle ashes. Our policy is when we are asked for permission, we deny the request," Doughty said. "Beyond that, we don't know."

What's in Your Wallet - The Amero?

Have you heard of the Amero? I bet you haven't. If things go according to plan it will become a big part of your life. Especially if you live in the United States. You see, it's replacing the U.S.Dollar.
While you screaming "Hell No!", I might take a little time to give you some history. I was stationed in Germany from 1985 until 1990. When I got there, the Deutchmark was doing pretty good and you had to show your passport (or military I.D.) to cross the border into France or Belgium.

The DM was at it's high point in 1985 and declined steadily until I left. As talk about a European Union grew, the passport checkpoints were dropped. You could then blow right across the French border at about 100mph.

The family took advantage of this one weekend and went to Luxembourg. I wanted to go to the American Cemetery there and visit Patton's grave. While there we had lunch in Luxembourg City. After lunch we did some sight seeing and came across the Capitol Building for the United States of Europe. I was impressed with the flag.
In 1990 as I was leaving Europe there was talk of the Euro. A common European currency that France and The United Kingdom were fighting against, tooth and nail. As you might know, the Euro is now the single currency in Europe.

So much for the history lesson. Almost. By now you might be getting the feeling you've heard of this somewhere before. Does the term NAFTA sound familiar? The North American Free Trade Agreement allows for international trucking to travel unrestricted from Mexico to Canada. Sound familiar?

Now here comes the Amero.
For now it's a hypothetical currency. The proposed single currency for North America. It is the idea of Canadian conservative Herbert G. Grubel.
Is the Amero the next logical step in the creation of the North American Union? I think so. I also think not enough people are taking this seriously. Like the frog slow boiled in the pot, the Globalization of the U.S. is coming at us slowly, incrementally like it was in Europe.

Have faith True Believers! There are a couple of significant obstacles for implementing the European model here in good 'ol North America.

1. The U.S. Constitution forbids the use of foreign currency in Article 1, Section 8; which states that the United States Congress has the right to “coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;”. The U.S. Constitution has to be rewritten or weakened.

2. The U.S. Dollar is currently the defacto international currency. The U.S. Dollar needs to be weakened. This already happening. Read more about this.

3. The American citizenry is armed courtesy of the Second Amendment. An armed revolt is a distinct possibility should any attempt be made to abolish the Constitution and fold the U.S. into a North American Union. The U.S. public needs to be disarmed. Keep this in mind the next time the gun debate is in the news.

At this point the Amero remains hypothetical but is also on the edge of becoming a reality. The coins pictured here are parodies designed by Daniel Carr. Carr offers these parodies to focus attention on the debate for and against the Amero. He urges, as do I that the U.S. public voice their opinions whatever they may be about the Amero.

I am against the Amero in theory and application. I fear that it is a harbinger of attempts to destroy the Constitution and subvert the U.S. into the One World Order .

Stumbling Around StumbleUpon

It's nice to to read a good website over morning coffee. This happened today when fellow stumbler DeMerchant sent me his site. Awash in a sea of the meaningless emo flotsum of MySpace and YouTube, StumbleUpon is an island of quality. Sometimes. As it has gained in popularity, Stumbleupon has had its share of flotsam. Demerchant heads the nail on the head in his self-proclaimed rant and is trying to separate the chaff from the wheat. His point is, "Are you a good Stumbleupon friend?" Do you really share common interests? Do you take the second and give a "Thumbs Up" to pages your friends share with you? Do you exchange ideas by leaving reviews? Or are you just mindless surfing and couldn't care less one way or another.

If you have taken the time to read this post to this point, you're a good candidate to take the time to review it on Stumbleupon. Or at least give it a thumbs up. You'll find the icon conveniently placed at the end of this post. A feat that took me a whole morning to figure out how to program (Thank you).

Along with stumbleupon, I've got a couple of other blogs and pages out there on the web. As a publisher, I'm always looking for the "Hat Trick". That is to say, a thumbs up, a stumble review and a comment on the blog. As a stumbler I do not lose sight that Stumbleupon is a Social Website. Kind of a MySpace for thinking people, dare I say adults. I have had better conversations sending pages back and forth here than anywhere else. Well except for my forum. So get with it people. A thumbs up is nice but I really want to know what you are thinking.

Washoe, a Chimp of Many Words, Dies at 42

It was announced on October 31, 2007 that Washoe an African chimpanzee was dead at the age of 42.

Washoe 1965-2007

"So what?", you might ask. Washoe was a special chimp. She could talk. No, not like "Planet of the Apes". She was taught to used American Sign Language.

Over the years, her vocabulary expanded. She also "made up" words. Swan, for instance was "water bird". Watermelon was "drink food". She had a life long fascination with shoes. She would always check out the shoes worn by visitors to her compound.
She'd chat about them and their color and such.

When she finally mated, researchers were keen to see if she would teach ASL to her offspring. On one amazing day, researchers were entering her compound to check on her and her babies. They were startled when her mate became enraged and charged them. An enraged full grown male chimp is a fearsome, dangerous thing. Don't confuse them with baby chimps wearing hats.

As a reflex, a researcher flashed the sign for "stop" and to their amazement the male stopped dead in his tracks. Taking the opportunity, the researcher signed "What's wrong?" The male then signed, "Babies sick, Washoe upset".

In addition to teaching her mate, Washoe did indeed go on to teach her children. But she remained the most "talkative" of the troop.

She was named for Washoe County, Nevada, where she was raised and taught to use ASL.

After a short illness. Washoe died in bed at age 42, surrounded by staff members and other primates who had been close to her.

Washoe had lived at Central Washington University since 1980; on October 31, 2007, officials from the Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute on the CWU campus announced that she had died the previous day.

Thompson Asks for Aide's Resignation

So you're running for President of the United States. You find out that a trusted friend was convicted of a crime. What do you do?

If you're Fred Thompson you ask for and accept their resignation.

Phil Martin, a businessman who has lent Thompson his private jet to fly around the country, was one of four campaign co-chairmen for the '08 Republican candidate. The Washington Post reported Sunday that Martin also posted a guilty plea in 1979 for selling 11 pounds of marijuana and a no contest plea in 1983 for cocaine trafficking and conspiracy.

If you're Hillary Clinton you put them on your staff in an "unofficial" capacity.

Sandy Berger was fined $50,000, placed on probation and stripped of his security clearance for three years after pleading guilty to stealing classified documents from the National Archives in 2003 as he prepared to meet with the 9/11 Commission. The news of what he had done led to his departure from the presidential campaign of Democratic Sen. John Kerry in 2004.

Honestly (pun intended), who would you want in the White House?

U.S. Plans to Nuke New York

Is a Second More Deadly 9/11 Now In the Works? There are good reasons to believe so

by Richard Franklin

As you know, a B-52 bomber was equipped with six nuclear warheads mounted on Advanced Cruise Missiles and then flown from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota to Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana on August 30. They were mounted on the wings of the bomber.

According to Michael Madsen's sources, a group of officers within the US Air Force became aware of the theft of these missiles and their nuclear warheads and intercepted them at Barksdale.

After this event somehow leaked to the media, the White House apparently scrambled to concoct a story to account for the theft. They came up with a lulu. They told us it was all a 'mistake'. The six nuclear warheads had been mistakenly mounted on Advanced Cruise Missiles, which were then mistakenly mounted on the wings of the B-52, and then mistakenly flown to Louisiana. If we are to believe the White House's absurd story, nobody among the crew of the bomber was even aware of the deadly cargos attached to the wings of their aircraft.

Wayne Madsen has reported that the nukes were destined for Iraq, but were intercepted by renegade officers of the US Air Force who are opposed to attacking Iran with nuclear warheads in a plan that was devised and was being allegedly overseen by Dick Cheney. According to Madsen, a U.S. attack on Iran using nuclear weapons was scheduled to coincide with Israel's September 6 air attack on a reputed Syrian nuclear facility in Dayr az-Zwar in northern Syria. The interception of the nuclear warheads apparently caused the White House cabal to defer an American coordination with the Israeli attack until such time as the problem of the intercepted nukes was resolved on the domestic front.

The activist group Citizens for Legitimate Government has come up with an astounding revelation that has been ignored by our controlled media. A spokesperson for the group has indicated that six members of the US Air Force who were directly involved in loading or transporting the missiles, were killed within 7 days of the Barksdale interception. Their deaths have been ruled 'accidents'. I repeat, these deaths happened within 7 days of the incident! The odds against this happening are mind boggling.

The victims according to CLG include Airman First Class Todd Blue, 20, who died while on leave in Virginia. A husband and wife from Barksdale Air Force Base were killed on Shreveport-Blanchard Highway while riding a motorcycle. Adam Barrs, a 20-year-old airman from Minot Air Force Base was killed in a crash on the outskirts of the city. First Lt. Weston Kissel, 28, a Minot Air Force Base bomber pilot, was killed in a motorcycle crash in Tennessee. Police found the body of a missing Air Force captain John Frueh near Badger Peak in northeast Skamania County, Washington.

It has been surmised by many that those directing the nuclear thefts embarked on a cleanup operation to silence any persons who were not part of the conspiracy but had knowledge of exactly what had gone down at Minot and Barksdale Air Force Bases. It defies common sense to come up with any other explanation for the six deaths, a figure that may already be out of date. Any further deaths may quite possibly be kept from the media. Read More.

Allow me to retort:

Having been in charge of nuclear weapons this "story" smacks of some much horseshit as to be painful. While I admit that this incident was stupidity run amok, the idea of an evil cabal plotting disaster is the Looney Left at its wackiness. Read this for more.

I've provided a link above so that you'll know I'm not making this up. Someone else is and you had better wise up before you vote.

If you believe this fiction-presented-as-fact, I have a bridge to sell you.

I haven't the faintest idea who Richard Franklin is but this crap comes from an Anti-Zionist, "Let's Blame the Jews for Everything" website called iamthewitness.com.

General Paul Tibbets has Died

General Paul Warfield Tibbets Jr has died after a two-month decline in health. He was 92.

Paul Warfield Tibbets Jr was born in Quincy, Illinois, in 1915 and spent most of his youth in Miami. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1937 and led bombing operations in Europe before returning to test the Superfortress.

The then Col Tibbets named his B-29 Enola Gay after his mother.

Tibbets was the Commander of the 509th Bomb Group and piloted the B-29 mission which dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima Japan.

On the 60th anniversary of Hiroshima, the surviving members of the Enola Gay crew - Gen Tibbets, Theodore J "Dutch" Van Kirk (the navigator) and Morris R Jeppson (weapon test officer) said: "The use of the atomic weapon was a necessary moment in history. We have no regrets".

Gen Tibbets said then: "Thousands of former soldiers and military family members have expressed a particularly touching and personal gratitude suggesting that they might not be alive today had it been necessary to resort to an invasion of the Japanese home islands to end the fighting."

In 1995, Gen Tibbets denounced as a "damn big insult" a planned 50th anniversary exhibition of the Enola Gay at the Smithsonian Institution that put the bombing in context of the suffering it caused.

He and veterans groups said too much attention was being paid to Japan's suffering and not enough to its military brutality.

General Tibbets had asked for no funeral nor headstone as he feared opponents of the bombing may use it as a place of protest, the friend, Gerry Newhouse, said.

Barry Sanders Shows TOTAL Ignorance of the US Military

Barry Sanders posted on the Huffington Post a rather entertaining piece criticizing The U.S. Military about how "green" it is. The ignorance displayed in the article is stunning to say the least. Does anyone in the media do research anymore?

I'll grant you that the DoD uses a lot of gas. Tanks, aircraft, ships, trucks etc. etc. On the positive side, they recycle almost everything possible. Try throwing a printer cartridge in the trash. They monitor their environmental impact like Nazis. For example, at the Air Force Base I work at, we cannot use soap on the vehicle wash rack because it will put soap in the water system. Through the MSDS program, the storage, use and disposal of hazardous chemicals are monitored right down to the Windex for the bathroom mirrors.

Oh yeah, smoking is prohibited in any building used by the DoD. So there!

I don't even understand why the comments about Navy SEALs are in context with subject of the piece. Throw in a shot at Blackwater and the obligatory "Bush is Bad" diatribe.

I call on readers to comment on any other stupidity they've noticed in the article. Please comment.

Read the article here.

A Sample of Sanders' Inaccuracies:

The USS Independence was decommissioned in 1998, four years before the voyage to the Gulf that Prof. Sanders recounts with such impressive detail.

The F-111 and F-4 combat aircraft were removed from the inventory two decades ago.

The CVN USS Abraham Lincoln only has "guns" for air defense. Since there have been no air attacks on her the ordnance expended by her "guns" is zero.

The Apache helicopter is flown exclusively by the US Army not the US Air force.

"Of all the branches, the Air Force uses the most fuel." Sorry Barry, I think the Navy has us beat on that "factoid". Ever try to gas up a destroyer?

To sum things up, you're full of shit Barry.

PA Hunter Claims Picture of Bigfoot

Here it is...

October 30,2007

A PHOTOGRAPH taken by a hunter in Pennsylvania has reignited debate over the existence of Bigfoot.

Rick Jacobs claims to have taken the pictures using a camera hung from a tree with an automatic trigger.

"We couldn't figure out what they were," Mr Jacobs said in a report by the Associated Press. "I've been hunting for years and I've never seen anything like this.''

Bigfoot enthusiasts say it appears to be the real deal but, perhaps predictably because of the quality of the photos, other experts say it looks like a bear "with a severe case of mange".

The Bigfoot sighting happened near the town of Ridgeway, in the Allegheny National Forrest, which is about 115 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Pennsylvania Game Commission spokesman Jerry Feaser says bears that are regularly trapped by the agency for the purposes of tagging are similar to Jacob's photos. "There is no question it is a bear with a severe case of mange," said Feaser.

A blog posted as Feaser's and claims to feature a video of the creature is a HOAX. Attempting to view the video triggers a malignant porn worm. Read more.

My Horoscope

If you asked in conversation whether or not I believed in Horoscopes, I'd say no. A fellow stumbler sent me a site and the first Horoscope was witty enough to make me look mine up. What do you know? Here it is:

ARIES [March 21–April 19]
For all we know, in your past life you were a virgin who was thrown into a volcano to appease a fire deity. But whether or not that's an actual fact, we can say this with certainty: At some time in your current life, you made a great sacrifice in an effort to pacify a person whose anger or violence or manipulativeness you were intimidated by. Now I say unto you, Aries, that it's an excellent time to fix any distortions that were unleashed in your life because of that sacrifice. You've got the personal power and insight you need to set the healing in motion. Halloween costume suggestions: the mythical phoenix; a virgin-turned-warrior carrying the severed head of the fire deity; a fireman, firewoman, or firedancer.

Pretty telling since my divorce was final today.

Here's hers:

SCORPIO [Oct. 23–Nov. 21]
Don't eat stale candy from a vending machine where it has sat for six months. Don't seek advice from people who haven't changed their minds about anything since the last century. And don't wear clothes you acquired before 2005 or cling to attitudes you adopted before last month. Catch my drift, Scorpio? You need to evade every influence that tends to keep you frozen in the past. In fact, I'll go so far as to say that it's time to make yourself fully available for the healthiest kind of future shock. Halloween costume suggestions: a grinning exclamation point, a rosebud about to burst open, a welcome sign, a religious devotee dressed in white.

Get yours here.

Dems in House May Spark Turkish/Iraqi War

In another bonehead move, House Democrats are moving forward on a non-binding resolution to censure Turkey for committing atrocities against Turkish/Armenians in 1915! During the Reagan administration a similar bill resulted in Turkey baning U.S. forces from using Incirlik AB for two years.

Turkey is a key staging area for the war in Iraq. If Turkey bans U.S. forces again, troops in Iraq will be hard pressed to get resupplied with food, medical supplies, weapons and ammunition. A pretty neat end around trick to force the U.S. out of Iraq without getting shit splattered on the Democrats.

President Bush called on House leaders Wednesday to abandon the measure. "Congress has more important work to do than antagonizing a democratic ally in the Muslim world, especially one that's providing vital support for our military every day."

Bush also said at a Wednesday news conference that "... one thing Congress should not be doing is sorting out the historical record of the Ottoman Empire."

The bill's sponsor is Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, has said the measure will be put to a floor vote before the recess, despite resistance from members of her own party, including Rep. Ike Skelton, powerful chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. By a 27-21 vote last week, the House Foreign Affairs Committee adopted the resolution, which formally identifies the killings as genocide. Turkish officials acknowledge the killings of Armenians during World War I but vehemently object to the designation "genocide."

As this stunt back fires, many in Congress are rethinking their position on the bill.

Reps. Alcee Hastings of Florida and John Tanner of Tennessee, both of whom serve on the House delegation to NATO have sent a letter to Pelosi urging her to drop the bill that would "threaten our operations and our troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan."

Eight former U.S. secretaries of state also oppose the resolution: Alexander M. Haig, Jr.; Henry A. Kissinger; George P. Shultz; James A. Baker III; Lawrence S. Eagleburger; Warren Christopher; Madeleine K. Albright; and Colin L. Powell. They sent a letter to Pelosi last month urging her not to let the resolution reach the House floor.

Six former co-sponsors have abandoned the measure since last week, leaving it with 218 co-sponsors.

At this stage, whether or not Pelosi drops the issue is mute, the damage has been done. Turkey is ratcheting up its military actions against Kurdish factions along the Turkish/Iraqi border. Turkish shelling has been reported and with an overwhelming majority, the Turkish government on Wednesday cleared the way for a cross-border military incursion into northern Iraq in order to chase down Kurdish rebels based there.

Thank you Nancy Pelosi. Has your naked quest for power completely blinded you to what's in the best interest of our country? Has the radical Left and their irrational hatred of the President taken such complete control of the Democratic Party that you're willing to do anything that furthers their agenda?

Lt. Michael P. Murphy Awarded the Medal of Honor

U.S. Navy SEAL team commander, Lt. Michael P. Murphy has been posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.

On June 28, 2005, a SEAL Team 10, commanded by Lt. Michael P. Murphy was tasked to locate a high value Taliban leader in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan. The team was comprised of

Lt. Michael P. Murphy, commanding.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Danny P. Dietz
Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew G. Axelson
Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell

The team's position was compromised when three goat herds stumbled on to the position. With about a hundred goats milling around, the SEAL team took stock of their situation. Fearing that the goat herders would report their position, they discussed executing them. One being a 14 year old boy. Their communication to higher headquarters was cut off and they were on their own. Although the civilians presented a clear and present danger to the team, it was decided that the goat herds would be released and the team would hope for the best.

Within hours after releasing their captives, the team was attacked by about 100 Taliban fighters. A two hour gun battle in sued. The entire team was wounded. With normal communications still cut off, Lt. Murphy resorted to his cell phone. Leaving his cover, Murphy exposed himself to direct enemy fire in order to make the call. He requested air support and immediate extraction of his team. "My guys are dying out here, we need help!" Murphy was then struck in the back by enemy fire. He picked the phone back up to give their position to Headquarters. Murphy then flanked the enemy and advanced on their position firing all the way.

A CH-46 helicopter with 16 Special Forces aboard and escorted by Apache attack helicopters. The CH-46 outpaced their escort and the pilot decided to land in the hot LZ unescorted. The helicopter was struck by an RPG. It crashed killing all aboard.

The team fought on. Dietz died first. Then Murphy.
Luttrell cradled the mortally wounded Axelson in his arms. Axelson implored Luttrell to evade and escape. A grenade explosion blew the two apart, killing Axelson and wounding Lutrell again.

Luttrell successfully evaded the remaining Taliban and then with help of local Afghanis returned to his base.

Dietz, Axelson and
Luttrell were awarded the Navy Cross for this action. Lt. Michael P. Murphy was awarded the Medal of Honor.

Hillary Gets a Berger

Susan Page, reporter for USA Today, asked whether Clinton has any qualms about having Berger as an unofficial adviser to her campaign, given his mishandling of sensitive, classified intelligence documents in 2003?

"He has no official role in my campaign. He's been a friend for more than 30 years. But he doesn't have any official role," Clinton said.

But he's an unofficial adviser, Susan asked?

"I have thousands of unofficial advisers," said Clinton, "and, you know, I appreciate all of that. But he has no official role in my campaign."

As Berger is on probation he is forbidden to get a security clearance for three years. This probably won't be a problem for Senator Clinton because none of her staff had a security clearance for the entire first term of President Clinton.

Fred Thompson Blasts Reid on Limbaugh

Fred Said:
"Congressional Democrats are trying to divert attention from insulting our military leader in Iraq and pandering to the loony left by attacking Rush Limbaugh. He is one of the strongest supporters of our troops, yet Democrats claim he is not being strong enough. I wonder who General Petraeus and his troops think is most supportive?"

Harry Reid Blasts Limbaugh for not Being Patriotic

You know that Star Trek episode (pick one) where the someone in the crew wakes up in an alternate universe? Yeah, that one. Well it happened to me this morning,

As a habit, I have the TV turn on to Fox News in the morning. So as I was wafting in from a Good Dream about Divorce Court, there was "Pinky" Reid blasting Rush Limbaugh for blasting callers to the Limbaugh show lying about being soldiers.

Talk about through the Looking Glass. Harry "Surrender Me" Reid was really upset about this and he should be. It is an old horse in talk radio to have a flaming liberal call in and say they are a "veteran against the war". Rush threw a flag on the play and outed a particular caller and suddenly he was being denounced on the Senate floor by the Majority Leader himself.

Keep in mind that "Pinky" was not defending "Our Brave Soldiers". Instead he was defending the Liberal Democratic tactic of Lying.

When I hear "Our Brave Soldiers", I think of sweat soaked infantrymen blazing away in a fire fight or hugging their children on their return home. When "Pinky" says "Our Brave Soldiers" he's talking about those brave liberals who risk everything by talking on a phone.

Here's "Pinky"!

Rush Retorts!

WTF? Syrian WMD's?

Israel attacked Syria and it would've never made the news if not for the Turks finding some F-15 drop tanks in their desert.

The big question is what did the Israelis hit?

Snippets of stories are coming out and rumors abound. I'll put my money on nukes. WMD's from North Korea, who now conveniently want to disarm.

Heard on either Fox or CNN today that the weapons were marked "cement" and the Israelis tracked the shipment from North Korea to Syria. Then they blew them up.

Syria is being rather quiet on the issue. Shouldn't they be dragging a "Baby Milk Factory" or such in front of the cameras and decrying loudly for the U.N. to condemn Israel?

President Bush held a news conference today saying that the White House had advanced knowledge of the air strike and approved of it. Beyond that the press got a big fat "No Comment".

The Democrats should be screaming any minute and won't wake up to the threat until one of our cities evaporates.

Russia has been flying "Routine Patrols" off of our shores and those of our NATO allies. In the light of the Israeli response, could they have been tipped off too and are hedging their bet?

The silence is deafening.

Kid Nation

Okay, first a little honesty. I've been hearing about this show on talk radio for a while now and none of it has been good. Stories of pushy producers and absent parents. What parent would sign a waiver that said they could not sue the show if their kid caught a STD? The oldest kid is 15, the youngest is eight.

But I watched the show's premiere nonetheless.

The Premise is that about forty kids are packed off to a ghost town and left (more or less) to fend for themselves. They cook the food. They empty the shitters. Oh wait... THE shitter. The show cooks off like Kiddy Survivor.

As I watched the show, skeptical at first, I found it totally engrossing. If you're a parent, you'll be hooked. It let's you explore the "What would they do without me" question that has been milling around in your head.

As they get organized, the producers introduce a class system. Workers at the bottom, then cooks, then merchants. The Ruling class (with the most money and no jobs) are at the top of the food chain. They are to "Pitch in " where they can or want to.

Yes they get paid. Ruling class gets a buck a day. The workers a nickle.
They can spend their money in the grocery store, or dry goods. There is a soda saloon to get a tall cool one. They can buy tools and candy and books. A ten year old got a nickel copy of King Lear.

A 15 year old girl spotted a bicycle in the dry goods store. She's a worker and it's $3.00 price tag seemed high. But she wanted the bike. Soooo... free enterprise kicked in on the second day and she took it to the streets.


She asked for a nickel if you wanted to watch her dance. I think she charged ten cents for dance lessons.

She was riding the bike before sundown.

I'll be watching next week and rooting for the "Yellow District". They are the youngest of the four groups, ages eight to ten. They beat the Greens ass to become the "cooks" and not the workers. I think my heart is with them because my daughter is seven.

In a surprising move of maturity and practicality, they voted to select more outhouses over a T.V. for their prize.

Oh yeah, one more thing. Each week the "Ruling Council" will choose a "Star Pioneer" from among the group. The chosen kid gets $20,000 and a phone call home.

Do I have your attention yet?

O.J. Simpson Arrested in Las Vegas

Well who'd a thunk? Apparently, The Juice robbed a couple of memorabilia sellers in their hotel room of the Palace Station Casino, right here in good ol' Las Vegas. Here comes the good part...at gun point.

The facts as of yet are that Simpson accompanied by two men wheeling pistols went into the hotel room and forced the occupants to give them some of Simpson's stuff. Simpson was quoted as saying that he was "Doing his own sting operation" to recover items "for his children".

What items you say? Various items that Simpson was ordered to hand over as part of the settlement of his wrongful death civil suit. Including the suit he was wearing when he was found "Not Guilty" in the double murder trail.

Casino video has purportedly caught the robbers in the hotel hallway still brandishing the firearms and trying to carry all the stuff.

Simpson was questioned earlier and released and then was arrested Sunday. No bail was set.

Oh Boy! The Karma is finally going to hit the fan.

Buy the Fuhrman bumper sticker.
