veteran something

Posted in military with tags on November 8, 2013 by Word-Drum

There are veteran news broadcasters like Walter Cronkite, Wolf Blitzer, and Ron Burgundy.

will-ferrell-anchorman-2

There are veteran jazz musicians like Slammin’ Joe ‘Muskrat’ Smith. ‘Musk’ worked steadily for 50 years, but still can’t afford a pack of cigarettes in New York City.

There are veterans of the Blog Wars of 2009. Many were lost, but some survived.

Let’s not forget the veterans of the Congress of the United States. Some of them have served for more than 50 years. They have finished with taking the pulse of the people and now need a doctor or nurse to take their pulse, to see if they’re still alive.

There are veteran cartoon characters like Micky Mouse, Master Shake and Roseanne Barr.

The Peace Movement has it’s veterans. They have been doing other things for the last five years but they are ready to assemble should a Republican become President.

So why is it that Americans only honor Military Veterans on Veterans Day?

Veteran comedians don’t have any shrapnel in their bodies. They never watched their friends die or had to survive a firefight. Veterans of the NFL or NBA can win a game but can’t win a battle, or a war. Losing is not an option for a warrior.

Our Military Veterans didn’t do it for the money. All of us older working people are veteran somethings. Except for jazz musicians, we mostly do it to get paid.

If we are blown up, or shot at, while at work, we complain endlessly. The men and women we honor on this day, took it in stride, and made it through alive.

The more than 2 million Americans who have served over the last decade should be singled out as exceptional. And in a way not touted in our culture, seen as cooler than any movie star.

The veteran Hollywood elite earn their 20 million per movie by having to wake up early to get their make-up done. The average Soldier, Sailor, Marine, Coast Guard, or Airmen, has earned our respect for real sacrifice, courage, and upholding the true values and laws that we live by.

There is a time for talk and a time for action. The evil will only talk to buy time. For them, there is nothing to negotiate. John Kerry and other veteran talkers, will keep talking until we are all dead. Anti-Soldiers are only heroes in movies made by twisted veterans of the Left.

Veteran bullshitter, Barack Obama, can fool some of the people all the time, but can’t earn the love and respect of the American people like a Marine or Navy Seal. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

american-flagToday we honor the fallen heroes of our country. They didn’t particularly want to die, or fight for that matter. True, they trained hard and thought deep about what soldiers do.

They stood up to defend freedom in this world. They were shot down or blown up by those who oppose the personal freedom of Americans. From fighting the British, to the Nazis, the Communists, to fighting today’s incarnation of evil: the jihadists.

It’s a rare soul with the guts and expertise to step into the snake pit of the Islamic World and take on the mujies. And perhaps we should stop. How can we cope with the loss of the outstanding individuals who serve in the military?

Perhaps without their sacrifice, the rest of us would suffer and even die. For if we can be over-run by the likes of our Islamic enemies, who could never be as strong as us, only more violent, any other group with evil intent, could also destroy us.

They can’t read blogs, or do anything else anymore, so I will thank their families and friends. Their Brothers in Arms will remember them as they really were. We can keep the fallen alive in our hearts. These Patriots give meaning and direction to our lives. For them I have only love and respect.

OK, I’m jumping the gun a little to relieve the tension.

He is a winner though.

Winning votes for the other guy isn’t hard if you appeal to all that’s vulgar and cheap, while claiming to occupy the high ground.

There are many problems in our country. Not least of which is that every vote from Active Duty Military Personal will not be counted. That’s right, thousands of votes.

The Dept. of Defense whose responsibility this falls under is right down there with the rest of the Administration and Michael Bloomberg – full of (liberal) shit.

God help us if we should need help from our government like the people suffering in the North East. Despite the hype about Katrina, the rescue operations were better than those for Sandy and it’s wake.

Tomorrow let’s hope this man made disaster, from the sick twisted minds of liberals, is ended.

Here’s more reason for voting for a real change in our foreign policy from the great American Thinker James Lewis

The Worst News from Benghazi

It is now apparent that the president of the United States countermanded standing Pentagon orders to help American personnel under attack. Ambassador Stevens and three others were left to die without AC-130 Spectres and rescue teams that are always on standby in the Africom theater. Only the White House could have countermanded those standing orders, and we know that POTUS had an emergency meeting with Panetta and Hillary within 55 minutes of the start of the attack. AFRICOM’s General Carter F. Ham was fired — presumably for wanting to rescue the Americans under fire.

                                    The Strait of Hormuz

The Telegraph:

An armada of US and British naval power is massing in the Persian Gulf in the belief that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s covert nuclear weapons programme.

Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.

Continue

The Strait of Hormuz is a chokepoint for 20% of the world’s oil.

A six week disruption in fuel supply is likely. The high prices and low supply should return to normal with the strong leadership of the world’s lone superpower.

So it it could turn into World War III.

No, this isn’t a post where I get mad at people who don’t like my music. This is a beautiful and important story concerning our returning troops and the marvels of modern medical science.

Ideology aside, many of these programs were funded by the Federal government. All Americans can be proud of what the AFIRM program is achieving.

        Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine

Stars and Stripes:

Surprising methods heal wounded troops

BOSTON (AP) — Scientists are growing ears, bone and skin in the lab, and doctors are planning more face transplants and other extreme plastic surgeries. Around the country, the most advanced medical tools that exist are now being deployed to help America’s newest veterans and wounded troops.

-In Los Angeles, surgeons used part of Michael Mills’ forehead to rebuild his nose after a bomb disfigured him in Iraq.

-In Pittsburgh, doctors used an experimental therapy from pig tissue to help regrow part of a thigh muscle that Ron Strang lost in a blast in Afghanistan.

-In Boston, scientists are making plans for the first implants of lab-grown ears for wounded troops after successful experiments in sheep and rats.

-In San Antonio and other cities, doctors are testing sprayed-on skin cells and lab-made sheets of skin to heal burns and other wounds. The ingenuity is impressive: One product was developed from foreskin left over from circumcisions.

Much of this comes from taxpayer-funded research. Four years ago, the federal government created AFIRM, the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine, a network of top hospitals and universities, and gave $300 million in grants to spur new treatments using cell science and advanced plastic surgery.

“The whole idea is to bring all these researchers together to develop these great technologies that were in early science to eventually be ready for the troops,” said AFIRM’s recently retired director, Terry Irgens.

puke slime on ohio military voters

I’m not a fan of Chris Wallace on Fox News. Once again I turn on Fox News Sunday and have to look at that stain David Axlegrease, top hack of the Democrat Perty.

Obana knows he’s not loved in the military, they’re too smart. So the Social Justice Dept. is suing the state of Ohio to suppress the the military vote. This is what Comrade Axlegrease was trying to cover up with his mendacity on Fox News and elsewhere.

Breitbart:

Democrats Versus Military Voters: Not the First Time

Last Thursday, Breitbart News’ Mike Flynn broke the news that the Obama campaign was suing in the swing state of Ohio to block a law that extends early voting for members of the military for an additional three days. A fierce battle erupted, with Democrats (and a few conservatives) arguing that Obama campaign was simply trying to extend the military’s privilege to everyone else. Regardless of the remedy they seek, Flynn points out, they are suing to end an exemption for military voters. It would not be the first time Democrats–who pretend, in their fight against voter ID, to want more ballot access–have tried to stop the military’s votes from counting.

Posted in military, music, war with tags , on May 29, 2011 by Word-Drum


This new song called “Boy To Ramadi” will be my post for Memorial Day. It’s about a hero from our ongoing fight with the boys from Islam.

Along with this generation’s warriors, always on my mind at this time, and throughout the year, is our Vietnam Vets and their fellow troops who did not come home. And the thousands who took their own life after returning to Liberal America where the cruelest people think themselves to be saints, and true selfless service was disregarded.

Boy To Ramadi>

Bike ride to the park
falling down, you skin your knee
Still afraid of the dark

Mom said: It will be alright. Mom said: It will be alright.

Played hard and lost
Growing up, you start to see
you'll catch the next one tossed

Dad said: It will be alright. Coach said: It will be alright.

Try so hard, you want to show them.
Fast become the man you wanna be.

Bootcamp was a hoot
Worked like a dog and slept like a log
Not hitting all you shoot

Sarge said: It will be alright. Sarge said: It will be alright.

One day you fly
across the world with brothers and friends
Some of them will die

Sarge said: It will be alright. Sarge said: It will be alright.

Carrying a heavy load, the
sun beats down, no way to cool
Worse is under the road

Sarge said: It will be alright. Sarge said: It will be alright.

The road explodes and drives you backwards
The sky is black, a hand is all you see.

Sarge said: It will be alright. Sarge said: It will be alright.

The black starts to bright
Heaven comes after the pain
Walking into the light

God said: It will be alright. God said: It will be alright.

Looking down on your boy
He rides his bike and starts to cry
Dad's better than any toy

Mom said: It will be alright. Mom said: It will be alright.

Fight or die, or both, no option
Less would leave us all overrun.

Call you hero, you are remembered
Time stops tears. Cheers for the battles won…

and freedom under the sun.

Caller to the radio show Coast to Coast:

“In 2004, a ghost (the first causality in Operation Iraqi Freedom) inhabited me. He was killed in an accident while loading a C-130 cargo plane.”

“The Spirit took me to the battlefield where US Troops were waiting for the invasion of Iraq. I was among his unit as we tested and retested our gasmasks and protective clothing. We were expecting a chemical or biological attack from Saddam.”

George: “You mean you were one of the troops?”

Caller: “Yes”

George: “Are you in the Service, or are you a Veteran?”

Caller: “No. I’m an Conceptual Artist. And before this happened, I always opposed US military action of any kind, like everyone in Soho.”

“But this time was different.”

“I had helped raise money for for Amnesty International. They had documented much of the horror of the Saddam Hussein regime. His ghosts also spoke to me.

My neighborhood was nearly destroyed in 9/11, and people I knew were incinerated that day. Saddam played a big role in the jihadist movement throughout the world, and his goal was to lead the Islamic Nation. All this justified his removal from power.”

George: “Your ghost, what happened to him?”

Caller: “He left me there with his unit. I hung around. It was boring most of the time. The men had trained well and now they could only wait. Finally they took off towards Baghdad. It all went smoothly until the unit met up with the dreaded fedayeen who were lying in wait.”

“Not a trained soldier, this was too much to handle (even though the large rifle rounds passed right through me). The last thing I saw was Private Rollins go down.”

“My spirit guide then spoke to me.”

Spirit: “You will leave us now. I must be with Rollins. We will be fine.”

Caller: “Why did you show me this?”

Spirit: “Do you think you can make some art from this experience?”

Caller: “Why?”

Spirit: “We are bored with American Culture. Both high and low.”

“The artists have let us down. We died to give you the space to create. I was not that special…only to my family. But near by me up here, is guy who saved many lives by his heroic actions. He gave his own life to save his fellow Navy Seals.”

“Why did he do it? For Reality TV and recycled Disco?”

George: “I like Disco. Maybe it wasn’t a ghost, it was an alien? I have one living in my attic. Thanks for calling, next we’ll speak to a woman who says she used to date an Orthodox Jew who claimed he was an alien. Her book ‘Matsah 51’ next.”

Some of us still remember the dark days of the war in Iraq (around 2006 and 07). Every day our Troops were stabbed in the back by the Democrats and the rest of the Left. They tortured us with their accusations of torture.

Now they want us to rally behind the great jihadi killer Obama. Yet Holder goes ahead with his prosecutions of CIA interrogators, and will defend any terrorist we lay our hands on.

Wall Street Journal:

The Waterboarding Trail to bin Laden by Michael B. Mukasey

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said that as late as 2006 fully half of the government’s knowledge about the structure and activities of al Qaeda came from harsh interrogations.

excerpt:

The current president ran for election on the promise to do away with them [enhanced interrogation techiques] even before he became aware, if he ever did, of what they were. Days after taking office he directed that the CIA interrogation program be done away with entirely, and that interrogation be limited to the techniques set forth in the Army Field Manual, a document designed for use by even the least experienced troops. It’s available on the Internet and used by terrorists as a training manual for resisting interrogation.

Hotel Fallujah by Mops

They call me Mops because I was known for mopping up the battlefield.

We were told how bad we were for killing Al Qaeda in Fallujah. We were told the Marines should not to go back in there.

“So Al Qaeda is good?” I asked the nice lady. “I will be looking for the good stuff when I get over there next week.”

Search as I did, I never found anything good. They were like zombies. They got off on torture and blowing us up. The young ones were seen eating the flesh of the contractors hung on the bridge. My brother Marines and I found more than 15 torture chambers littered with blood and body parts. We freed the living and prayed for the dead.

The mujis were stoned out of their minds. They fought with total abandon since life was cheap to them. The dirty bastards killed more than 50 first class American Heroes.

We took the city one house at a time. We did what we do, and finally brought peace to that God forsaken place. Unforgettable as it was, I can’t describe it.

Bing West wrote a book about it but no one in Hollywood will film a story about this epic battle (unless they can show some Marines in a bad light, and it stars Matt Damon, so Devil Dogs won’t want to see it.)

While Americans don’t seem aware of it, the Islamic Brothers know about their defeat in Fallujah.

It’s strange that they didn’t even have to fight to control our Universities and other liberal bastions. “Nice” people just let them in. They freely follow the Islamic Law of no criticism of Islam allowed.

I looked for the good in our enemy and even with a college education I could not find it. I am thankful the nice lady hasn’t yet met the enemy like Lara Logan. That’s why we do the job.

Human Events:

The Best Among Us  Captain Skelton returns to the battlefield.

by John Hayward

The news is often filled with the deeds of low men. Let me tell you about a great one.

Army Captain D. J. Skelton is back on the battlefield in Afghanistan, after recovering from wounds he suffered in Iraq. A lot of wounded soldiers have recovered and returned to service, a company of determined heroes whose numbers inspire awe and reverence.

Captain Skelton is a leader in that great company. The wounds he suffered in Iraq came during the battle of Fallujah, during Operation Phantom Fury in 2004. A piece of shrapnel from a rocket-propelled grenade went through his mouth and destroyed his left eye. He’s been through over sixty surgeries. He has only partial use of his left arm and right leg, and needs a special prosthesis to eat or drink. A profile in The Daily says “the Army could not identify anyone who suffered worse wounds than Skelton and has returned to combat command.”

The points below come from a recent report by ISW (the Institute for the Study of War). They keep people informed on a war that many Americans think should not be fought. The first five points tell why it should. The last one is still up for grabs.

*Kandahar is strategic terrain because it is the heart of the Pashtun south, the birthplace of the Taliban movement, the former de facto capital of the Taliban government, and the home of President Karzai.

*For the Taliban, contesting Kandahar is important for their attempts to appear a viable rival to the Afghan government.

*Insufficient troop strength from 2005 to 2009 limited ISAF’s ability to target and destroy the enemy strongholds in three key districts: Arghandab, Zhari, and Panjwai.

*After the Surge troops’ operations in Kandahar, many of the fighters in Arghandab, Zhari, and Panjwai laid down their arms when it became clear the Taliban could not resist ISAF assaults. Some joined ISAF cash-for-work programs, which grew from several dozen workers to between 4,000 and 6,000 Afghans a day in Zhari.

*Coalition operations in Zhari also neutralized the enemy attack network along Highway One. In the first 28 days of October 2010 there were no kinetic incidents on the stretch of highway passing through Zhari, a change from early September when the Taliban were conducting five or more attacks a day.

*Despite this progress, restoring the Afghan government’s legitimacy is ultimately an issue of altering public perception, and progress made in building government capacity will achieve little if overshadowed by perceptions of corruption and factional control over the Kandahar government.

Posted in military, word-drum with tags , , on November 10, 2010 by Word-Drum

Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day. Let us salute these great Patriots and thank them for doing the hard work, fighting the good fight, and surviving it all.

I don’t enjoy watching men cry. Boehner or Beck can cry into their pillow, I don’t need to see that.

Back in my New York days I did some acting. I was Musical Director of a small Off-Off Broadway theatre group. I did some bit parts. Acting is easy, anyone can do it. Kids play act all the time and so do most adults: it’s part of work and doing business.

If I was acting today, and my character had to cry or get choked up, I would probably start thinking about the old Veterans, especially the under appreciated Vietnam Vets.

And to really get the tears rolling, I would think about the amazing younger Veterans who volunteered for the Iraq and Afghan wars. Choking up not because of sadness, but out of heartfelt unconditional love for the American Soldier. Love like members of the Armed Forces have for each other. But not as great since I’m not a member of that elite group. I’m just a citizen who is grateful for freedom. Thank you Veterans and welcome home.

It’s thrilling that Allen West won in Florida. Veterans like him will lead this nation to unsurpassed prosperity for all and true greatness based on Constitutional values. This will enable America to continue to lead the world that is still in darkness and bring it along into the light of freedom.

There are so many great groups that support our beloved Veterans.

                                     Semper Fi Fund

If you can, drop some dough on the above mentioned fund. Do it for them, do it for yourself, and do it for your old pal Word-Drum because he can’t at this time.

There’s nothing like offering a job. Spouses have also sacrificed much. These military families are special people. Privately they have shed many tears. They cried for the hardships of separation, and worse: for horrible wounds suffered by their loved ones(DAVs). Yet they walk proud with their head up. Why shouldn’t they!? They are married to people with great skill, honor, and heart. God Bless them all.

Like many students around the age of 20, I went through my Existentialist Period. Not much of anything from Sartre except

         “Hell is other people”

from his play No Exit, had much of an impact.

But Albert Camus was not only a better writer than the Marxist Sartre, his novel The Plague, still speaks to man’s existence.

The hero, a doctor who fights The Plague, survives. While those who run away die.

  Fight The Plague or die from it.

The Modern Plague is Radical Islam. If we withdraw from Afghanistan, it will embolden the jihadists. People will die, women will be tortured, and no one will know.

Not content to be King Piggy at home, these men want to kill and enslave us all. The Obots will let the Muslims conquer us so as not to offend them. They will mark their victory the way they always do, with a large Mosque at the site of what is for them their greatest accomplishment in hundreds of years: 9/11.

The only reason to withdraw Coalition Forces from the region is to bomb it from the air. This, along with a hundred Muslims killed for every American victim of jihad, should be on the table. We need not leave the country to find Muslims. Let’s bring all the Troops home and send in the Air Force, The Navy and Special Ops. Let Muslims suffer for Islam instead of us.

Waiting for the shit to hit is no way for a man to act. After Osama gets off his nuclear attack on America, there will be plenty of gung-ho sentiment. It will then be too late to man-up, but we’ll do it anyway. It won’t matter, nothing will.

I have heard it from a variety of sources that the Islamo-Terrorists were “impressed” by our taking out of Saddam and defeating Al Qaeda in Iraq. Taking the war to the enemy is the only thing that gets through to them. They want us to surrender to Islam. So they must surrender to us. They started it, and we will finish it or freedom will perish.

                       We Shall Fight. We Shall Never Surrender.

Lately I’ve been in a Savage Nation mood. I still think Rush is first and second in Talk-Radio. But Savage is talking about Kagan in his inimitable way. The rules are Jews can talk about Jews, and Blacks can talk about Blacks, etc.

I have scorched the Google and Alta Vista trying to find the name of an activist for the International A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition(commies who love Islamists). I remember one with the name Kagan who was active in the New York area. I found nothing. If anyone knows about this please leave a comment. That I did not find it on Google means nothing. The scrubbers are always out. Bless the little Stalinists.

It could have been Elana herself. This court could one day rule on our very existence as a free republic. She is a disaster. “Standing on principle” she kicks the Military off campus. But that was her policy from her days in the Clinton Administration!

And what’s wrong with Don’t ask, don’t tell? I like the sound of that. It’s none of my business and who cares anyway!

The main thing is that the Military, for the most part, doesn’t want to change it.

I can’t repeat enough that liberals are nuts. I think it’s all based on hatred. They hate everything but themselves. That too, they have ass backwards.

Navy SEAL Matthew McCabe

Conservatives love a Patriot. The Americans who serve in the Military are like Rock Stars to us. They can be a highly decorated combat veteran, a mechanic or medic, or an elderly veteran of WW II.

We think often and pray for the kind of young person, or not so young National Guard member, who signed-up the day after 9/11.

The American Soldier has fought for freedom here and abroad. But even they can’t keep our country safe from crime. That they mostly get to go home at night, does not make the work of the Police any less brave and Patriotic.

It cost nothing to be a conservative. The spiritual and emotional benefits are just as good as Liberalism. There are plenty of ‘feel good’ moments. As some one interested in art, there is a pathway towards truth in these moments. The modern art I grew up on, and the institutions of production like the University, don’t recognize this kind of intuition.

Based On Air

If ‘God Bless America’ is jingoism, what is Post-Modernism, the Frankfurt School, or the political writings of Noam Chomsky?

You don’t have to be an Oath Keeper yourself, or some kind of Angel, to partake in the exhortation of Patriots. Unlearning and rediscovery could be the path to beauty.

                           Frank Antenori for State Senate AZ

War Hero to announce his campaign for District 30 Senate Arizona

Frank Antenori was born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania; He joined the Army shortly after graduating from high school in 1984. In 1987, Frank volunteered for Special Forces, commonly known as the “Green Berets.” While in the Special Forces, Frank was involved in several operations of historical significance some of which include Desert Storm, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Arizona Republic:[read with caution]

Lightbulb bill aimed at asserting state rights

Frank Antenori’s idea is as bright as a 100-watt lightbulb.

And it’s lighting up conversations at the Capitol over states’ rights and the role of the federal government.

In proposing that Arizona become the national epicenter of incandescent-lightbulb manufacturing, the Tucson Republican hopes to provoke a fight with Washington, D.C., over states’ rights and interstate trade.

Defend Michael:

On March 20th, 2009, Army Ranger 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing Ali Mansur, a known Al Qaeda operative while serving in Iraq. Mansur was known to be a member of an Al Qaeda cell operating in the lieutenant’s area of operation and was suspected to have organized an attack on Lt. Behenna’s platoon in April 2008 which killed two U.S. soldiers and injured two more. Army intelligence ordered the release of Mansur and Lt. Behenna was ordered to return the terrorist to his home.

During the return of Mansur, Lt. Behenna again questioned the Al Qaeda member for information about other members of the terrorist cell, and financial supporters. During this interrogation, Mansur attacked Lt. Behenna, who killed the terrorist in self-defense. The government subsequently prosecuted Lt. Behenna for premeditated murder.

Puggal:

FN 57 pistol was used by Malik Nadal Hassan in shooting at Fort Hood. The gun is a 5.7 millimeter pistol and comes in a version that goes through armor and is only sold to military customers and law enforcement. The gun was likely to be banned in US in 2005 but failed. Now, the question is this How Malik Nadal Hassan get it before attack at Fort Hood?

It is reported that he bought FN 5.7 from an armor store of Kileen months ago. Tonight AP reported

worddrum-48Last night at work reminded me of 9/11. On that fatal day I went to my gig, a private party, and it was canceled. But the next day I had my regular Wednesday night gig. It was so strange because everything seemed normal. I was in a foreign country after all, but I never felt so far away from America.

The terrorist attack on those Army soldiers has been much on my mind. Emptying four 16 round magazines (much like the killer) on my hand-made targets (men with beards and skull caps…they ain’t Rabbis) did nothing to stop the unease brought on by the attack. With what is going on in Washington D.C., the pressure from the Left and the Islamists, this country could explode.

On top of everything last night our performance was filmed and recorded. So I have to carry on, but how does the Army do it today? I can only pray they clean house and protect our finest from Political Correctness. It’s a killer.

The brave people in the Military can mostly handle war and death. For the rest of us, the horror is almost unbearable. The jihadis love it, the liberals don’t understand it. God Bless the hero, Police Sergeant Kimberly Munley, and the wounded.

Lord, if You are reading this, please also bless the Republicans in Congress. They are fighting today to save the Republic. (Jews pray on Saturday)

Now that I have your attention: I know soldiers visit Word-Drum. Some of them have their own very good blogs. Those who don’t should write a post for this site. Tell us about coming home, or going to war…whatever the fuck you want.

I promise a share of all the profits from this blog, and my girl-friend (pictured above) will come to your home and clean your rifle. But don’t take that to the bank.

Whenever I try this (I asked for rhymes from returning soldiers, to make a hip-hop collaboration where I do the music) it never works. But I supported Mitt Romney, then John McCain and I’m still a Phoenix Suns fan. So why stop now?

FaceBook blows. Blogs are where it’s at. Anything you have to offer would be appreciated and make this space much more interesting. I offer a permanant place here if you want it. I miss my old boss Lance at The Muslim Question Blog. He’s a Vet, and even though it was only through the Internet, it was a great learning experience to work with him. He had that sense of humor only found in soldiers. He’s probably mad at me for going off the wall after Obama won. But he hates everybody, that’s part of his charm.

Posted in military, obama era, war with tags on August 29, 2009 by Word-Drum

Iraq-soldier-001Even with President Hussein as your Commander in Chief, one of the best things a young American can do is join the Military. You will be prepared for war and trained for survival.

As the Leftist in our government reek havoc, there will be war, shortages, and an end to American Idol. Even the Stars won’t be dancing.

While our fighting forces are constrained by Justice Dept. lawyers and the ACLU, until the Left have absolute control, soldiers will do their jobs, and find a way to defeat the enemy (even if it’s Nancy Pelosi).

And on top of being ready for battle and the ability to survive, you will find yourself among a different class of Americans. A special breed who have distinguished themselves through rigorous training and study to become members of the Armed Forces of The United States of America.

Not everyone is welcomed, you have to earn it. But when you’re in, it’s like having a second family and like living in another world.

Service and honor have long distinguished the American Soldier. Perhaps now it’s more about “being all you can be.” (This American is thankful for every dead jihadi!)

You can’t be sure what kind of orders will come from the top. I expect the oath to be kept, and no dishonorable orders will be followed. No Troops will ever fire on the American people, and we won’t attack our allies like Israel, or overthrow the government in Honduras to help Chavez and other enemies of freedom. Obama will have to start his own army for that.

        What happened toHands Off Central AmericaBitches?!

I grew up in an anti-military time, with liberal parents, and never even considered serving. I have only observed from the outside how our soldiers are terrific, funny and outstanding Americans. They have given us peace and freedom. So much peace that many have lost touch with the reality of evil in this world. This childish reasoning will surly lead to war and the loss of freedom for Americans. We will soon all want the knowledge and skills of the soldier. Michael Jackson won’t matter at all.

Viet%20Nam%20Soldier%20kneeling

It’s not legit in this country unless it’s Left: In politics, education, art, entertainment, news media, science, environmentalism… even childhood has been tainted by scary AlGore. Gone is the fear of God, replaced with Left-Wing paranoia and delusions of controling the climate in exchange for hunger and misery for most humans.

Gory Al will stay fat and grow even richer as an elite member of the Left.

When the Stalinist in our government, settle into their posts as guardians of The People’s Business, history books will be rewritten and George W. Bush will go down officially, as the worst person ever. Guess who will be number one?

Hollywood pukes don’t understand the damage they did to Vietnam Veterans, nor do they care. They make movies and they must be Left-Wing. The bad guys in their movies are never Reds, like them, nor is it now Islamic Terrorists or Islamic men who beat their wives and rape their children. It’s always some “Right-Wing” cabal of old Nazi/Republicans behind all evil.

No great film was made about the taking of Baghdad, Falluja, or General Petraeus’ brilliant Counter-Insurgency operation in Iraq. Because that’s not Left.

So the truth itself does not fit into the Left. But it means something to me… because I know it means something to the remaining warriors from the Vietnam Era and their Brothers in Arms.

To the heroes of the U.S. Armed Forces I would say thanks for killing the enemy. For killing Nazis, commies and muji scumbags. For doing it so well, you were forced to give your precious lives. Doing that, you gave life to others. You have died for human rights and liberty. We will celebrate you while we bask in these things. The celebration will end when these things are gone.
