Tonight is the last of the debates between Governor Romney and Prez Obama. As usual, Matt Drudge nails it:
Even if you were to sweep that off as just unfortunate, you also have to contend with this:
Don’t think that was just unfortunate timing and/or mistakes done on the ground. That’s the icing that several dictators are licking as they endorse Prez Obama. Just ask Putin, Chavez, and Castro. No, don’t bother with the Nork Dork. He’s too busy watching musicals and threatening South Korea to bother endorsing anyone over here. But the Prez can always blame the Afghanistan deaths on BusHitlerHalliburton or something.
Even the UN Dude for Counterterrorism and Human Rights (no, I’m not making that title up. Well, just the “Dude” part) has actually come out and WARNED the citizens of the US to NOT vote for Romney, because waterboarding!!!ELEVENTY111!!! And just to make sure that the conservatives do not cheat, the UN is sending some international poll watchers to you know, keep an eye out for disenfranchisement, like enforcing the law. That’s great foreign policying right there.
Truth be told, and I know I don’t have to say it, but the best summation of Prez Obama’s foreign policy comes down to one word: Benghazi.
Let us hope that nail is driven into the coffin until the wood splinters.
From a friend in the Empire State:
There is no amount of deodorant for the desperation they reek.
Imagine if you will, that you decide to make a poster for a school project. And the subject of the poster is a map of gang violence crosslisted with demographic data. And your facts are readily available to you through the library and the census bureau. And you point out that the most violent gang activity is in the predominantly black neighborhoods.
Then imagine that the black gang members who attend your school see that poster, and decide to burn down the hallways, break windows, and cause bodily harm to those who get in their way.
And when the smoke clears, imagine the school decides to expel YOU, because you made the gang members angry enough to riot. You insulted them by pointing out the obvious. It’s ok for the gang members to know that, but NOT ok for the rest of the people to know that. That’s an open secret they want to keep.
Well, imagine no more.
Here’s the first line from the LA Times (not linking it, just follow the links if need to, but that whole story is slimy).
“Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.”
Just after midnight?? REALLY??? And just why were there soooo many cameras at the ready?? Of course, he was “voluntarily” escorted away, for questioning, of course.
Do you see what happened?? This man, who has every right to make and put out a movie on freakin’ YOUTUBE, is blamed by this inept administration for the wilful rioting in the Middle East, which culminated in the killing and desecration of FOUR AMERICANS. And what does the administration do? Go after the killers? Noooooooooope.
This administration willingly submitted to the will of Allah.
You think I’m wrong? Well, look at it this way: Muslims decide to use this movie as an excuse to riot, destroy, and kill, because their so-called prophet was insulted. And what do Obama and Co. do? They give the Muslims what they want: punish the blasphemer, and apologize for his actions. So now, the rioting fucktards know that all they have to do is burn and pillage and kill, and we will do anything they ask.That is submission, the very definition of Islam.
Muslims (and I don’t add “extremists” for a reason you will read later) will always have an excuse to riot. ALWAYS. Because those who do not submit to Islam will always be infidels, and need to be eradicated from their version of a perfect world.
And in case you think I am lumping all Muslims together, ask yourselves this: just how many of the “moderate” Muslims who actually believe in “peace” are speaking against the violence? Their silence is deafening. Until they begin to speak out against the violence of their jihadist brethren, I will have issues.
To those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, thank you.
Words are inadequate, but our gratitude is never ending.
“As we know, death came to the defenders of the Alamo, but victory later came for the people of Texas. And today 25 million Texans can celebrate our liberty, and honor the founding generation of Texans who secured it for us. Happy Texas Independence Day, and God Bless Texas.”-- John Cornyn
So I wish my state a wondrous birthday, and revel in the fact that we are the only state in the nation with it’s own navy.

It is with mixed feelings that I hear this story. Having spent my time in the combat zone (as has Mr. Aggie), this move is bittersweet. First, it means our boys and girls in uniform will not be maimed or killed in Iraq. Second, it also means there is a vacuum, sure to be filled by Shiite’s with leanings toward Iran. (When I was in Iraq several years ago, there were certain groups that did not want us to leave…ever.)
And let us not forget the Kurds up north who want their own country. Why is that important…think Turkey, and I am not talking about the Thanksgiving bird! Turkey has already been running raids into northern Iraq, and the Kurds are some of the most bad ass fighters I have ever served with in combat. The Arabs…not so much.
I have to admit: naming military operations can be decidedly tricky. Some, like Operation Desert Storm sound majestic and pretty much sum up the purpose of the campaign. Others, like Operation Menu (which was the bombing of Cambodia during the Vietnam War) bear no relation to the actual campaign, and fall very short of being a good descriptor. There are some that take description of the operation way too far, like Russia’s Operation Forcing Georgia to Peace, which as we all know was total bullshit anyway, and should have been named Operation Push Georgia Into Defending Itself. Commie bastards….
Anyway, in the days following the attacks of 9/11, Neal Boortz was talking about the coming war, and the possible names of the operations that would be talking place. The names that were being bandied about fell short in Hubby’s estimation:
Me: Well, what would you call it, then?
Hubby: I would call it Operation Smoking Crater. Or if you want subtle, Operation Desert Glass.
Me: Ooooh… much better.
Names should strike as much fear as the actual physical operation, in my humble opinion. I want the terrorists to have a bowel movement when they hear something like Operation Killemall. Or better yet, Operation Moms Are Pissed.
What operation names can you come up with??
To the shores of Tripoli!!!
You look wonderful for being 236 years old.

Most of you have NEVER heard his name, and for good reason. As most of you have never heard of Blue Light, the precursor to Delta Force. This man is just that….a MAN!!
On Gary’s mother’s side are several notable Sioux Warriors including Chief Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse. His grandfather mentored him according to the Sioux Warrior path which includes a Sundance and eventually a four day vision quest.
Gary joined the military in a not so legal manner at the age of seventeen and completed a tour in Vietnam. He was recommended for the Silver Star for bravery but the Government didn’t take to kindly to Gary borrowing someone else’s name to get into the service, so they kicked him out. An anonymous Special Forces Sergeant Major helped Gary get back into the service again but he had to go through basic training, airborne school and other training all over again. Did he mind? Hell No, he was having fun and looking forward to getting back into combat.
While retrieving his friend’s body, Gary’s undercover identity was compromised and he was tortured to the point of near death. Due to Gary’s special training and his life long study of martial arts he was able to slow down his heart rate enough to appear dead to his captors. After escaping and recovering from his wounds Gary was able to track down his enemies and send them to the afterlife.
Here’s the article.
