An Open Letter to the pResident

Discarding his usual bombastic style, Rush Limbaugh has a heartfelt message to Barrack Hussein Obama. While I usually don't care to listen to him because of his personal style of rhetoric; I think Mr. Limbaugh hits the message squarely on the head in this one.

Gods Team?

Tom Brady, after living a full life, died and went to heaven. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Patriots' flag in the window. "This house is yours for eternity, Tom," said God. "This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here." Tom felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house. On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a 3-story mansion with a blue and white sidewalk, a 50-foot tall flagpole with an enormous Colts' logo flag, and in every window, a blue and white Colts' towel. Tom Brady looked at God and said, "God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was an all-pro QB, I hold many NFL records, and I even went to the Hall of Fame." God said "So what's your point Tom?" "Well, why does Peyton Manning get a better house than me?" God chuckled, and said

"Tom, that's not Peyton's house, it's mine.

Go Green to save money?


Glen Beck gets out his green calculator and examines the claim that high initial expenditures in "going green" will save you money in the long run. (sorry for the infomercial at the beginning; but don't let the commercialization detract from the truth exposed !)

It's high time that the Green movements claims are examined in the light of cold hard reality. Just like with the Global Climate Change movement; it behooves one to "follow the money" to see "behind the scenes" and ascertain if there is an self-interested agenda powering and affecting the views of the movement.

Guest Editorial

Doug Giles has written an excellent commentary on the Trijicon military scopes controversy. He's responded much better than I ever could to this tempest in a teapot. I'm going to follow his advice and get a Trijicon the next time I re-scope my Enfield.

What Do Jesus, Rifle Scopes and Dead Terrorists Have in Common? Trijicon!
By Doug Giles

In the latest edition of political correctness gone wild, Mikey Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation are droning on about scope manufacturer Trijicon putting Scripture references on their gun optics that our troops use to kill Muslim maniacs. They think a biblical citation will offend our opposition and be used as a recruiting tool for terrorist tools.

This politically correct, anti-Christian military "watch dog" is the same group of wizards that didn't catch Nidal Malik Hasan's "SoA" (Soldier of Allah ref) on his military business card and claim that somehow Hasan felt harassed by non-Muslim military meanies into killing our troops at Fort Hood. How sweet.

Yep, the overly sensitive ones at MRFF are very concerned that an obscure Scripture reference built into the serial number in tiny, wittle print on the base of Trijicon scopes will affront Achmed the Terrorist. That would be the same Achmed who screams "Allahu Akbar!" before he lights his penis on fire at 30,000 feet.

Call me crazy, but I'd think that the most odious aspects of Trijicon's optics, if I were a terrorist, would not be the murky Bible references but the following ...

* Trijicon's self-luminous aiming systems that have been battle-tested by those who protect and defend the USA around the globe-rightfully earning Trijicon the reputation of having the most sophisticated and dependable deadly optics on the planet. Yep, Trijicon has united long-range accuracy with instantaneous shot placement like no other. Now ... if I were part of the Taliban, that would tick me off more than JHN.8:12 on a sight rail would. Fo' shizzle, my nizzle.

* Another thing that would irk me if I were a "Man Made Disaster" (or whatever Napolitano calls terrorists) more than John 3:16 could ever hope to would be Trijicon's Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight (tm) (ACOG). Why would the ACOG get under my skin? Well, it's because this little gadget provides "instinctive" target acquisition and increased hit potential in all lighting conditions. That's way offensive!

* Another thing that would really get me PO'ed if I were an al-Qaeda op is the Bindon Aiming Concept (tm) (BAC). Y'know ... aiming with both eyes open! This crap gives the USA a far superior sense of balance and a wider field-of-view. Indeed, the combination of these benefits with a magnified Trijicon sight gives our troops a considerable advantage over their targets. And we all know how unfair that is to Islamic radicals.

Another thing that I'd consider ruder than the vague verses hidden out of view on Trijicon's sighting system if I were a suicide bomber would be the .223, .308 and .50 BMG bullets that actually come out of the gun barrel and devastate my vital organs. That stuff would get me really pissy. So, MRFF ... when are we going to ban bullets for their bellicosity toward poor Muslim terrorists?

Yep, thanks to the PC pressure MRFF applied to our already bound and gagged military wizards, the brass inside the Beltway have come to conclude that if our troops use Trijicon's optics marked with a reference to the gospel of Mark that al-Qaeda and the Taliban will get mad, go crazy and view our engagement as a holy war.

Uh ... let me help you a little bit. These crazy SOBs can't get any madder. I think at this stage of the game everything we do ticks them off. For example, in their minds: Bible code on a scope = they wanna kill us! Heidi Montag gets a boob job! Argh! We must die! Conan gets cancelled! No soup for us! Pat Boone wears white after Labor Day! Damn Americans! I kill you!

Additionally, the war that we are fighting with implacable Islam-the one which they started-has always been, in their view, a holy war; we're the one's who are still pretending it isn't!

Here's what I recommend: Being the anything-but-PC pundit that I am, I say we do the opposite of what the PC sheeple suggest we do. Here's what I think we ought to try:

1. Trijicon renames their ACOG optics to GRTMS, the "Get Ready to Meet Satan" scope.

2. We put the image of Jesus in the scope with his finger pointing up to where the bullet will impact the target.

3. We rename the M4 to 72VP, which is short for "72 Virgins? Puh-lease!"

Finally, I'd like to thank all the patriots at Trijicon for the amazing optics they have provided for hunters, law enforcers and our outstanding military men and women, as well as their commitment, as a company, to Jesus Christ. I've got to confess, I have never owned a Trijicon scope and have been a Leupold fan for many years. However, in light of the hell the boys at Trijicon are going through because of their faith, my three new rifles that are currently scopeless will now all be topped with Trijicons. And I suggest, America, that you show them some love and do the same thing with all your rifles that need some glass.

What a difference a vote makes

It's been a red letter week for the Conservative Movement.

Within the 48 hour period encompassing the surprise upset election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts, bluest of the blue states; with that win we have observed a sea-change in the body politic..

1. Obama put his political capital on the line, stumping for Martha Coakley, and ended up getting booed in what should have arguably been a state containing his staunchest base constituency.

2. Nancy Pelosi has publicly admitted that the monstrosity of a bill known as Obamacare now doesn't have the votes to get passed. (Isn't it amazing that just one vote changes EVERYTHING in the ability of the Democrats to advance their agenda?)

3. The Supreme Court has overturned major sections of the odious McCain-Feingold "Campaign Reform' legislation.

4. Air America has closed its doors in bankruptcy(Oh gee! Imagine that! All of Air America's 'private sector' advertising evaporated while they cheered on a president who helped make that happen. Talk about irony!), thus ending the attempt at a mainstream propaganda organ of the DNC.

5. Christiane Amanpour has been called to account for her biased slant towards the liberal agenda in her reporting.

Two days before the election, none of these events could have been foreseen in any reasonable predictions, with hindsight after the election of Brown, they can all be seen as logical results of sane thought.

There may be hope for the Republic yet.

Sometimes Hollywood gets it right

"This isn't the Democratic party of our fathers and grandfathers. This is the party of Woodstock hippies. I was at Woodstock -- I built the stage. And when everything fell apart, and people were fighting for peanut-butter sandwiches, it was the National Guard who came in and saved the same people who were protesting them. So when Hillary Clinton a few years ago wanted to build a Woodstock memorial, I said it should be a statue of a National Guardsman feeding a crying hippie." --actor John Ratzenberger

The Train Ride

Sitting together on a train was Obama, George Bush Jr., a little old lady, and a young blond girl with large breasts.

The train goes into a dark tunnel and a few seconds later there is the sound of a loud slap. When the train emerges from the tunnel,

Obama has a bright red hand print on his cheek. No one speaks.

The old lady thinks: Obama must have groped the blond in the dark, and she slapped him.

The blond girl thinks: Obama must have tried to grope me in the dark, but missed and fondled the old lady and she slapped him.

Obama thinks: Bush must have groped the blond in the dark. She tried to slap him but missed and got me instead.

George Bush thinks: I can't wait for another tunnel, so I can smack Obama again.

It's Over

With 75% of the precincts reported in, the special election in Mass. is over.

Martha Coakley has conceded and we now have a Republican (although a Rhino) sitting in the Senate seat held by Ted Kennedy; thus ending the Democrat's 60 seat super-majority.

Now we will no doubt have a battle on just how quickly Mr. Brown will take his seat. The Democrats will do everything in their power to delay that occassion in order to try to force Obamacare through before they lose their 60 seat majority.

What difference does a 59 vs 60 seat majority make?

With a 60 seat majority, you can RULE; with a 59 seat majority you must GOVERN.

I sincerely hope this trend continues in the November general elections. We may yet be able to avoid a civil war...

In the Blue Ridge Mountains, there was a retired Marine who was reputed to
have the best hunting dog ever, by the name of "Gunny."

Three Marine Generals went up into the mountains and wanted to rent him. The
old Marine said, "He's a real good huntin' dog. Gonna cost ya $50.00 a day."
They agreed and three days later came back with the limit.

The next year they came back. "'Gunny got better," the old fellow said,
"this year I'm gonna charge you $75.00 a day."

Again they agreed, and 2 days later they came back with the limit.

The third year they came back and told the old Marine they had to have
"Gunny" even if it cost $100.00 a day.

The old Marine spat and angrily replied, "You can have the worthless mutt
for $5.00 a day, and even at that rate I'm overcharging you $4.00!!"

The bewildered Generals asked, "But we don't understand, what happened to

"Well, a bunch of new Lieutenants from Quantico came up and rented him. One
of the idiots called him 'Sergeant Major' by mistake, and now all the SOB does is sit on his ass all day and bark!"

R.I.P. A Hero

A real American hero died on December 23,2009. I know I'm late posting this but better late than never....

Col.Bob Howard (July 11, 1939 – December 23, 2009), a 36 year veteran of the U.S. Army Green Berets/SF died of cancer. Col. Howard was the first man to be nominated for the Congressional Medal of Honor THREE times.

Col. Howard came up through the ranks and retired as the most decorated soldier of the modern era. He was awarded the Medal of Honor, after having been nominated for it twice before (I guess the third time really IS the charm!). He also had 8 purple hearts, 4 bronze stars and 2 silver stars and two DS crosses. He spent 5 tours of duty in Viet Nam (serving mostly in Laos and Cambodia). In one 54 month period, he was wounded 14 times. He retired from active service in 1996, but he went to both Iraq and Afghanistan to visit the troops there. He held two Masters degrees.

Our nation lost one of it's real heroes; it will be a long time before we see anyone of his stature again.

WHERE is the money?


The Pretender in Chief was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on the 10 of December, 2009. The Prize has a cash value of $1.4 million dollars attendant to it.
Mr. Obama stated at the time that the money would be donated to charity, but as of today, no one knows where the money has gone.

The US Code is very specific about gifts given to elected officials from foreign sources; the code states:

1) The Congress consents to—
(A) the accepting and retaining by an employee of a gift of minimal value tendered and received as a souvenir or mark of courtesy; and
(B) the accepting by an employee of a gift of more than minimal value when such gift is in the nature of an educational scholarship or medical treatment or when it appears that to refuse the gift would likely cause offense or embarrassment or otherwise adversely affect the foreign relations of the United States, except that—
(i) a tangible gift of more than minimal value is deemed to have been accepted on behalf of the United States and, upon acceptance, shall become the property of the United States; and

(ii) an employee may accept gifts of travel or expenses for travel taking place entirely outside the United States (such as transportation, food, and lodging) of more than minimal value if such acceptance is appropriate, consistent with the interests of the United States, and permitted by the employing agency and any regulations which may be prescribed by the employing agency.
(2) Within 60 days after accepting a tangible gift of more than minimal value (other than a gift described in paragraph (1)(B)(ii)), an employee shall—
(A) deposit the gift for disposal with his or her employing agency; or
(B) subject to the approval of the employing agency, deposit the gift with that agency for official use.

The President is considered a Federal employee.

In other words, any monies he received from foreign sources MUST be turned over to the Treasury Department within 60 days. Mr. Obama CAN NOT LEGALLY donate that money to any charity; it belongs to the United States.

He's still within the 60 day period, but he needs to turn it over within the next 26 days or he will be committing an impeachable offense under the US Code.

Keep on eye on this issue folks, and keep the legal requirements in mind. The Pretenders actions will tell you just what kind of Administration we are laboring under.

I'm not holding my breath that he will do what he is legally required to do, but I'm not sanguine on Congress holding him accountable to the legality either.

FINALLY, A Response

FINALLY! There is a semi-official response to James Camerons foray into Military and Corporate bashing, Avatar.

I am a HUGE Sci-Fi fan, but I refuse to spend my money on a military bashing treehugger's wet dream, no matter how slick. This movie does a disservice to anyone that wore the uniform of our Armed Services, but most especially those that can proudly claim the title "United States Marine".

Cameron tries to portray that he's "cutting edge" director/producer, but in reality all he is, is a military/big business hating hippy leftover from the 60's.

You may say "it's just a movie", but it isn't, it's a piece of propaganda designed to smear those in our society that: A, protect us from threat of force, and B, from those that actually produce those items we take for granted in the greatest nation the Earth has ever seen.

No matter how technologically advanced the CGI is; the movie is just Progressive dreck in it's storyline, designed to turn the gullible into the sheep that the Leftists desire. It's "look at the shiny thing", all the while smearing the Warriors and the Producers that made our society great.

Let movies like AVATAR play, by all means; I just hope that in the future it will be seen and advertised for what it is, Leftist Propaganda. Leni Riefenstahl would have been proud to acknowledge a fellow traveler/successor in the genre, I'm sure.

I think I'll just go see Sherlock Holmes again, should I wish to donate funds to the theater industry in the near future.

It might seem ridiculous to talk about BBQing when there is a foot of snow on the ground and the wind chill index hasn't risen above 10 degrees in a month, but there are important safety rules associated with the manly tradition of the BBQ; Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity .

When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:

(1) The woman buys the food.

(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.

(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill – beer in hand.

(4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman.

Routine reminders thus far…

Here comes the important part:


(6) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.

(7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat


(9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.

Still pretty routine…

(10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

(11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.

And most important of all:

(12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed ’ her night off ’ and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there’s just no pleasing some women!

Women, just remember , the phrase "A perfect man" is an oxymoron!

Opinion in Brief

Today I'm putting up an opinion piece written by what I consider one of the greatest minds our country has ever produced. Mr. Sowell has identified a major problem in Progressive thinking, or rather, LACK of thinking on the Progressives part; The slavish following of the Academic theory du jour because, after all, these people are "smart".

"If there is any lesson in the history of ideas, it is that good intentions tell you nothing about the actual consequences. But intellectuals who generate ideas do not have to pay the consequences. Academic intellectuals are shielded by the principles of academic freedom and journalists in democratic societies are shielded by the principle of freedom of the press. Seldom do those who produce or peddle dangerous, or even fatal, ideas have to pay a price, even in a loss of credibility. ... Even political leaders have been judged by how noble their ideas sounded, rather than by how disastrous their consequences were. ... It may seem strange that so many people of great intellect have said and done so many things whose consequences ranged from counterproductive to catastrophic. Yet it is not so surprising when we consider whether anybody has ever had the range of knowledge required to make the sweeping kinds of decisions that so many intellectuals are prone to make, especially when they pay no price for being wrong. Intellectuals and their followers have often been overly impressed by the fact that intellectuals tend, on average, to have more knowledge than other individuals in their society. What they have overlooked is that intellectuals have far less knowledge than the total knowledge possessed by the millions of other people whom they disdain and whose decisions they seek to override. We have had to learn the consequences of elite preemption the hard way -- and many of us have yet to learn that lesson." --economist Thomas Sowell

Another Blonde Joke

This is mainly meant for Northerners, blondes, and those married to blondes, but the rest of you may also appreciate it.

One winter morning a husband and wife in northern Minnesota were listening to the radio during breakfast. They heard the announcer Say, "We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the Snowplows can get through."

So the good wife went out and moved her car... A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said, "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so The snowplows can get through."

The good wife went out and moved her car again. The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says,

"We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park..." Then the electric power went out.

The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face she said, "Honey, I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snowplows can get through?"

With the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are married to blondes exhibit, the husband replied, "Why don't you just leave it in the garage this time."

Military Humor

Marine recruits are not allowed to wear watches, because recruits tend to look at them, instead of paying attention to their DIs.

One reporter who was following a Marine recruit asked the recruit how he felt about not knowing what time it was.

The recruit replied, "Well, Sir, to be honest with you, I don't need a watch. When the DI screams and it's starting to get dark, then I know it's almost bedtime, and when the DI screams and it's been dark for a little while, it's time to wake up".

Sometimes military life can get rough!

I contend that the present Administration is inimical to our way of governance in both the Executive AND Legislative branches and needs to be overthrown; either (I HOPE) at the ballot box, or by force of arms. It is up to US which course will be required.

"We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things. Our curiosity keeps taking us down new paths." ~Walt Disney

Society always HAS to move on and open new doors and try new paths if it is to remain vibrant. Experimenting with new ideas can lead society to new heights. The thing to remember when experimenting is to always hold on to the core VALUES that encourage a free and happy society. Those VALUES should never change; any idea that corrupts those values only leads to despotism and misery.

The "HOPE n Change" mantra of the current government is NOT a new idea; it's the outdated and dis-proven path of Socialism/Communism repackaged; it has never worked to the betterment of any society it has been tried in, but always led to the ultimate downfall of that society.

The core values of self-reliance, self responsibility, and independence of the individual coupled with a strong family structure are the bedrock on which the best possible society are founded upon.

A New Year's Prayer

May God make your year a happy one!

Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;

Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;

Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;

Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;

Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you anxious to be there to help.

God's love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.
