The Jews are not demonstrating with their dead on the streets, yelling and chanting and asking for revenge.

The Jews are not promoting brain washing their children in military training camps.

The Jews are not teaching their children how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims.

The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics.

The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

The Jews don't have the economic strength of petroleum, nor the possibilities to force the world's media to see "their side" of the question.

The leaders of most oil producing Muslim countries are extremely wealthy while the citizens live in poverty, and that fact explains to a large extent why they have such enmity towards them.

Isreali leaders have usually proven themselves in harrowing, and often, life threatening situations.

Muslim leaders usually inherit their positions.

Perhaps the world's Muslims should consider investing more in standard education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.

Call me crazy, but as far as Decency, Honor, Courage, Motivation, and yes, Righteousness is concerned, I'm going to side with the Jews.

Who Cares if A Soldier Dies?

Take a man and put him alone,
Put him twelve thousand miles from home.

Empty his heart of all but blood,
Make him live in sand, in mud.

This is the life I have to live,
This the soul to God I give.

You have your parties and drink your beer,
While young men are dying over here.

Plant your signs on the White House lawn;
"Lets get out of Iraq".

Use your signs and have your fun,
Then refuse to use a gun.

There's nothing else for you to do,
Then I'm supposed to die for you?

There is one thing that you should know;
And that's where I think you should go!

I'm already here and it's too late.
I've traded all my love for all this hate.

I'll hate you till the day I die.
You made me hear my buddy cry.

I saw his leg and his blood shed,
Then I heard them say, "This one's dead".

It was a large price for him to pay,
To let you live another day.

He had the guts to fight and die,
To keep the freedom you live by.

By his dying, your life he buys,
But who cares if a Soldier dies?

I found this at the website of a Marine who is stationed in Iraq,
I don't know who wrote it but it also asks that those in the Military who care, add their name to the list.

In honor of those who died, I will post the names of those who already signed it, and I would ask that you also leave your "signature" (It doesn't have to be your real name) in the comments.

Funny Or Not...

THIS isn`t very funny, especially if you`re a pilot.
The pilot is minding his own buisness while trying to take off when an Al Quaida Bird suicide attacks his aircraft by flying into the intake.
When I heard the pilot call, "Eject! Eject! Eject!, I couldn`t help but think of Bill Whittle with the blog of the same name.

I found something which I think is hilarious.
I know, I know, after you hear it (it`s an MP3) you`re going to say I`m mean and heartless, and call me a compassionless, insensitive, knuckle dragging Conservative, but I bet you laugh at it too.
Here It Is

Last, for those of you who don`t know, the song "Taps" which is played at "lights out" actually has words to it.
Here They Are

July Gullywasher A/K/A Dennis

Hurricanes Blow and while I used to be impressed by them, I`m starting to get a little annoyed.

Don`t get me wrong, I appreciate their importance in the ecological scheme of things.
They are the air purifier, water purifier and all around cleaning lady of big 'ol Mother Gia (I hate that un-washed hippy term for Earth), but enough is enough!

In July, JULY! even, we have a Cat 4 monster bearing down on us. This is only the second Hurricane ever in July since they started recording them. (A long time ago. Do a Google search of its that important.)

Normally at the base S.O.P. for Hurricane prep has been, have everyone on Standby, wait until it`s almost pounding Cuba, then at the very last minute, when they are sure it`s coming our way, have everyone franticly secure the base.

Usually that means sitting around all day doing nothing (which drives me nuts). Then at 1600, getting the word that everything needs to be shuttered and boarded up before we can go home.
Never mind that we had been sitting around all day doing nothing, not even our normal, everyday work.
Never mind that no one had allowed us to even get the material ready, just in case.
That`s what "Standby" means...Stand By...Wait.

That usually means that by the time we were done at work we didn`t really have much time to do anything at home because the Hurricane was almost upon us.
In my case, I don`t have much to do as far as the home is concerned.
I have clamshell shutters which take about 10 minutes to secure and I`ve fixed the fence and gates that Hurricane Francis broke but I do have to get other things prepared in case I need to bug out, things that take time.

So you can understand why the S.O.P. for Hurricane prep at the base got our tempers flared up.
That is, until now.

This time they got the materials ready on Tuesday... just in case.
People started boarding up on Wednesday and they were done yesterday.
I was shocked! It was so un-typical, so well organized and made so much sense to me that I can`t help but wonder who finally got a clue.

Maybe it`s the fact that Dennis is a monster already and they don`t want to take any chances.
In any event, I have everything pretty much buttoned up at home. I`m also about as prepared as I could be in case I need to get out fast.

So far it has seemed like Dennis had Key West pretty much in his crosshairs.
I`ve been through a few of these so I know that a Hurricanes path is pretty fickle. I`ll wait until I`m absolutely sure it`s going to hit, otherwise I`ll ride it out.

A Few Things To Prove I`m Not Dead

I don`t want to end up like Terri Schiavo and have a judge kill me just because I haven`t shown many signs of life around here recently, so I figured I`d better post something.

Even if the State Nazis were to decide that I should "Die With Dignity" I would hope that they would follow my definitions of "quick and painless" and "humane" and just put a bullet in my brain, instead of their definitions by starving me to death.

So here`s my proof that all is well and I ain`t dead yet.

Thanks to Schadenfreude I`ve got a sports question.

How many points do you get when you make a basket like This?

2? 3? Or possibly 4?

And while you`re there go look at the pictures of

John from WuzzaDem asks a very good question relating to the Terri Schiavo case. A question with a TWIST.

On This Day

March 25, 1957: European Common Market Founded

"On March 25, 1957, France, West Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg sign a treaty in Rome establishing the European Economic Community (EEC), also known as the Common Market. The EEC, which came into operation in January 1958, was a major step in Europe's movement toward economic and political union."

Let us know how that works our for you.

This next Flash© video has a story to go with it from the creators of the video.

"A military mom named Millie sent me an email which explained how she was sent a link to our "Until Then" presentation on Christmas eve. She had lost her son in Iraq in March of 2003. As she watched, she saw one of the last pictures taken of her son, sitting relaxed, reading a newspaper. I have pondered greatly on that happenstance and of the many families that have lost loved ones in this conflict. Some have spoken against our presence in Iraq. But I believe that those who have given their lives in this war have done so for a great and noble purpose. One only needs to look at the faces of those who voted in the first free Iraqi election in 50 years."

Until Then

This next one is my personal favorite. I had it up when I first began the blog, but that link went dead, so I found a new one.

On Essays, Articles and The Last Letter Home

In October Cassandra posted an article called, Election Determines Fate of the Nation by Dr. Mathew Manweller which I thought was an excellent example of practical reasoning. It laid out the basic, yet vast differences between the parties and why it would be preferable to go one way, rather than the other and could be used as a common sense guide on basing all of your future votes.

The article got picked up by this, and many more websites and generated so much interest that the good Dr. decided to make his own site, with links to his monthly articles and essays.
For a good read, I highly recommend him at Essays, Articles and Opinions.

DU Gurl would not be amused.

Next up is what I thought were some very valid reasons for being in Iraq delivered by radio personality Darrell Ankarlo with a poingnant On Air reading of his son Adam`s Last Letter Home.

You may need Real Player which can be found here.

With the Christmas Holiday upon us many of us will be traveling the highways and byways to visit family and friends. It`s a time of joy and happiness as family members once again come together after being apart. A time to reminisce about old things and to get excited as you hear of the new things that have happened since last time.

Unfortunately it can also be a time for grief and sorrow. One wrong decision can have devastating consequences on everyone you know.

Please spend 4 minutes and 50 seconds to watch this video.

Have a happy and safe Holiday.
