On This Independence Day

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, July 4, 2014 in Government, History, holiday

Let’s remember what our forefathers were fighting, against and for.

god bless america

The time is soon coming when we will need to throw off another despot who clings to his pen and his phone, and provide new guards for our future security. History has taught us this: that she will repeat herself as long as ignorance abounds like putrescent mold upon the fabric of time. And ignorance abounds when we are taught nothing but to feel good about ourselves.

It’s high time we start earning back what our forefathers fought to give us.

In Flanders Field

by John MaCrae

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow,
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky,
The larks, still bravely singing, fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead.
Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved and now we lie,
In Flanders Fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw,
The torch, be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us, who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow,
In Flanders Fields.

red poppies

Remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Spike of the Year

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, May 2, 2014 in Government, History, Islamofascist nutjobs, Left Wing Media, Politics, terrorism

There is no end to the news stories surrounding The Most Transparent Administration, EVAH™ lately. It used to be that the White House minions would wait until 4 PM EST to dump any news. But lately it’s almost as if they are so complacent that they forget to manage the news cycle. I mean, they are just no longer even trying. A massive email dump is given to Judicial Watch as per their FOIA request, and you allow a former Nat’l Security Council spokesman with the attitude of a pimply 16 year old that has been turned down for Prom by his crush to go explain what the administration WASN’T DOING on the night of September 11, 2012?

Who is writing this drama? Nicholas Sparks?

First we learn that The Prez wasn’t in the Situation Room at all during the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans, and Planet Hillary was….. not there either. Then Pimples Vietor drops another nugget: he was in charge of talking points for Ambassador Rice, and the talking points were changed from “attacks” to “demonstrations”. Hey, in my world without Common Core math, 2+2=4. But the biggest take-away anyone with two braincells and an axon can get is this: no matter what, the level on incompetence from ALL senior staff, The Prez included, was instrumental in the Benghazi terrorist attacks. People are in dire need of rescue and you can’t be bothered to even be briefed in the Situation Room? Shit, even MSNBC is turning on the administration!

And I can see 2016 from here.

Happy Texas Independence Day!!

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, April 21, 2014 in Everyday Hero, Friendship, History, holiday

Th Battle of San Jacinto was the last battle of the Texas Revolution, fought between the Texian and Mexican armies. Unlike the siege of The Alamo, this battle lasted all of 18 minutes, and resulted in over 600 Mexican casualties, as opposed to less than 10 Texian casualties.

It is also a special day in Aggieland. I never had cause to write about it before but I do now, in recognition of our friend and fellow Aggie, Draco. Today we celebrate Muster, when we recognize the Aggies that have passed away in the year. At Roll Call, we answer for them, “Here!”

aggie muster

Tonight we shall raise a glass to his memory, and remember the good times we had in Aggieland.

Tin Foil Time

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, November 22, 2013 in History, Open Thread

Fifty years ago today, President John Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald, who was in turn shot by Jack Ruby, who was sentenced to death but died of a pulmonary embolism before his appeal could be started. This series of events spawned a SHITLOAD of conspiracy theories.

jfk

Which spawned a SHITLOAD of books.

And a SHITLOAD of movies and documentaries.

Frankly, I am sick and tired of grassy knoll crap. But it does get to be entertaining. So in light of it being Open Thread Friday, what are your favorite conspiracy theories regarding the assassination of JFK? New or old, doesn’t matter. Just remember that talking about theories regarding current events is verbotten. I won’t be responsible for the NSA seizing AG’s server ;)

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, November 11, 2013 in Everyday Hero, History, holiday, Military

A profound and heartfelt thanks.

thank you vets

For my husband, and my brothers-in-law, my neighbors, and my friends.

And for my brother Draco, who never failed to call and thank all of those he knew.

We can never repay what you have sacrificed for your country.

No Ordinary Day

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 in History, In Memoriam, religion of piece

No matter how hard some people try to make this a day of service, or a sale at a store, this is no ordinary day.

On September 11th, we always remember.

911

And eleven years after that, another attack which left four Americans murdered in Benghazi, Libya.

Forgetting lets evil win. Never, ever forget, and make sure to never let those who would choose to dismiss it forget, either.

Opulenty

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Friday, July 5, 2013 in History, Open Thread

A few years back, while stationed in Germany, we had the opportunity to visit some really nice places in the Old World. A tourist favorite in Germany is Neuschwanstein, the castle built by Ludwig II. And from the outside, it looks like a fairytale. But most people don’t realize only four rooms were ever finished. The inside is almost barren, which is a shock to most people who are there to see the opulent excesses of a king. His parents’ castle, Hohenschwangau, is a marvel. And defines the term “opulent” to several orders of magnitude.

I loved touring that castle. It had so much history to tell. But the most opulent thing in it was not silver, or gold, or even precious stones. It’s an electric pendant fixture made of red alabaster. Inconspicuous when it’s turned off, but when lit it is simply spectacular.

So, what is the most opulent thing or place you’ve ever seen?

On This Memorial Day

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Monday, May 27, 2013 in Everyday Hero, History, holiday, Military

For me, it is one of the saddest holidays, and yet it is also filled with joy, knowing that such courage exists, and such sacrifices are made in defense of freedom.

The Wall Boots

I give thanks to all the men and women who paid the ultimate price so that I could speak, and worship, and complain, and demonstrate. And to do so in English.

May they never be forgotten, nor their sacrifices be in vain.
