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.

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.

Let me be the first.

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 Bad Taste of Benghazi

The President thought “No one gets left behind” pertained to Hollywood and his campaign warchest.

What do you say, Mr. President?

“Ehhh, ya know, ehhhh…Forward.”

dire straits

                                    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.

growing new ears

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.

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

Posted in democrats, military, news and politics on August 6, 2012 by Word-Drum

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.
