If a Cannuckian gets it, why can’t D.C.? 17 May 2010 @ 20:33

The Generalette pointed this one out to me today. It’s a long read, but absolutely worth every minute of it.

Go check it out here.

Go. Shoo! Get to reading that article citizen.

Note to Darth: This is better than the email I sent back in February. The proof is a WHOLE LOT more damning than an Indonesian school registration.

Trifecta time? 16 May 2010 @ 14:43

What is this, THREE posts????

VENOMOUS: Actually, it looks more like two t’me, but let’s just humor him, mkay?

SG RAYEGUN: Three this month. Or do you have to have Korrioth explain it to you AGAIN how to count past TWO? {G,D & R!}

Yeah, I know….this one is from the Grab Bag™ as well so it’s not a new one. But given all the wonk-ery going on over there on the Left Coast it does have some current relevancy.

Without further ado, here are the Rules for Kickin’ Ass (for the non-military):

Dear Civilians,

We know that the current state of affairs in our great nation has many civilians up in arms and excited to join the military.

For those of you who can’t join, you can still lend a hand. Here are a few of the areas where we would like your assistance:

1. The next time you see any adults talking (or wearing a hat) during the playing of the National Anthem – kick their ass.

2. When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American Flag in protest – kick their ass.

3. Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing otherwise, quietly pull them aside and explain how these veterans fought for the very freedom they bask in every second. Enlighten them on the many sacrifices these veterans made to make this Nation great. Then hold them down while a disabled veteran kicks their ass.

4. If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you were. Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs) or Jungle Fatigues, telling others that you used to be ‘Special Forces’. Collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven years old, now, it will only make you look stupid and get your ass kicked.

5. Next time you come across an *Air Force* member, do not ask them, “Do you fly a jet?” Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot. Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are exempt).

6. If you witness someone calling the US Coast Guard “non-military”, inform them of their mistake – and kick their ass.

7. Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a parade, get on your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your heart. Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying her – of course, failure to do either of those could earn you a severe ass-kicking.

8. Don’t try to discuss politics with a military member or veteran. We are Americans, and we all bleed the same, regardless of our party affiliation. Our Chain of Command is to include our Commander-In-Chief (CinC). The President (for those who didn’t know) is our CinC regardless of political party. We have no inside track on what happens inside those big important buildings where all those representatives meet.
All we know is that when those civilian representatives screw up the situation, they call upon the military to go straighten it out. If you keep asking us the same stupid questions repeatedly, you will get your ass kicked.

9. “Your mama wears combat boots” never made sense to me – stop saying it! If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore would kick your ass!

10. Bin Laden and the Taliban are not Communists, so stop saying “Let’s go kill those Commies!” And stop asking us where he is! Crystal balls are not standard issue in the military. That reminds me – if you see anyone calling those damn psychic phone numbers, let me know, so I can go kick their ass!

11. “Flyboy or Zoomie” (Air Force), “Jarhead” (Marines), “Grunt” (Army), “Squid” (Navy), “Puddle Jumpers” (Coast Guard), etc., are terms of endearment we use describing each other. Unless you are a service member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them. Using them could get your ass kicked.

12. Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member of the military, support our troops and their families. Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please remember that there are literally thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen far from home wishing they could be with their families. Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make every day. Without them, our Country would get it’s ass kicked.

It’s the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us the “freedom of the press”.

It’s the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the “freedom of speech”.

It’s the Veteran, not the community organizer, who gives us the “freedom to demonstrate”.

It’s the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.

AND ONE MORE:

13. If you ever see anyone either standing for or singing the national anthem in Spanish – KICK THEIR ASS. (and no, that is NOT being racist….if you think it is you need to have YOUR ASS KICKED!)

ONE LAST THING:
WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, ONLY BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE! and that we must never forget that

IN GOD WE TRUST

ThatIsAll™

Does this make any sense to you? 16 May 2010 @ 14:31

Yup, another post….in less than a month….shocking I know.

Not anything new really, just some things from the Grab Bag™ is all. Here’s the first.

If you cross the NORTH KOREAN border illegally, you get 12 years hard labor.

If you go into CHINA illegally, you’re considered a spy and get hard prison time.

If you stop over in GERMANY illegally, you get a hefty fine, work it off or pay it off, then get deported.

If you go in to ENGLAND illegally, you are immediately jailed and then deported.

If you cross the IRANIAN border illegally, you are detained indefinitely.

BUT, if you cross the border and come in to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA illegally, you get:

1. A driver’s license
2. A Social Security Card
3. Welfare
4. Food Stamps, and
5. Free Health Care?

Does that seem right to you? I guess I still don’t understand why it seems proper to those in D.C. Here’s a thought that DOES make sense though:

GO GREEN!! RECYCLE CONGRESS!!!!

Pot. Kettle. Black. Again! 13 May 2010 @ 12:14

In this little tidbit of news, it seems that certain folks in NYC are following the progressive agenda in perfect goosestepping fashion. Between this and the flag t-shirt flap over in Californication it certainly appears that these coastal states have been drinking to koolaid a little heavier than others. And as Darth has already pointed out above….VIVA ARIZONA!

Now I know that those of us here get it. It’s been clear for some time now that the “fundamental transformation” Jugears McHopenchange was talking about was the complete and utter destruction of America as it has been known for the last 230+ years. The progressives have been wanting this since the early 1900′s when Woodrow Wilson first spewed forth the progressive agenda from his piehole. Remember, it was Wilson that brought forth the lovely redistributor of wealth called the “Internal Revenue Service” and then coupled that with the so-called private agency to manage all that “revenue” named the “Federal Reserve Board”. And not to mention, he also started the group that is now trying to turn the intertubes into a “public utility” so they can get the grimy fingers on it….yes, that fun-loving, happy face agency known as the “Federal Communications Commission”.

Getting back on point though, sure the Empire State building can make their own decisions on whether or not to allow the request for Mother Teresa’s 100th birthday….it is still a free country (subject to change without notice) after all. But going whole-hog for the 60th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Revolution and NOT wanting to honor a Nobel Peace Prize winner don’t exactly do much to even out the scales there gents. Is that nationwide petition starting to be a thorn in your side yet? Guess what, it’s likely to get worse as the news of this spreads.

Your call though.

Why yes, today was Mother’s Day (CORRECTION) 9 May 2010 @ 22:33

Just a quick note from the Commanders desk: Yes, the General is still alive and kicking. I’m just having to deal with an oily mess right now. In the meantime though, here’s a little reminder for everyone…..

Yes, today was indeed Mother’s Day. A day to celebrate all those things that mom has done for us. A day where mom get pampered and taken out to lunch or dinner. All that stuff.

But not to overlook the significant other events of May 9, let’s move over to the radar desk and see what else appears on the screen.

- For you sweet tooth dessert folks, today was also Nation Butterscotch Brownie Day.
- In honor of those of Dutch heritage, today was also National Windmill Day.
- Those of you who have a knack for all things tailoring, today was Hurray for Buttons Day.
- We’ve all seen the warnings, but the rebel in you took over…well here’s your day….it was Tear the Tags Off the Mattress Day.

And finally, this last one requires extreme solemnity, nay a full TWENTY-ONE GUN SALUTE!

Room, atten-hut!

For all those who have lost one or more of these over the years, today was:

Lost Sock Memorial Day

At Ease.

Now that mom is safely at home and resting from all the frivolity, be sure to honor the rest of these events appropriately. That’s an order soldier!
