The Caliber of the Women and Men of our Armed Forces

Below is a report from a chaplain attesting to just how honorable and patriotic our Armed Forces are.

From a Chaplain in Iraq.

I recently attended a showing of 'Superman 3' here at LSA Anaconda. We
have a large auditorium we use for movies as well as memorial services and
other large gatherings. As is the custom back in the States, we stood and
snapped to attention when the National Anthem began before the main feature.
All was going as planned until about three-quarters of the way through the
National Anthem the music stopped.

Now, what would happen if this occurred with 1,000 18-22 year-olds back
in the States? I imagine there would be hoots, catcalls, laughter, a few
rude comments, and everyone would sit down and call for a movie. Of course,
that is, if they had stood for the National Anthem in the first place.

Here, the 1,000 Soldiers continued to stand at attention, eyes fixed
forward. The music started again.. The Soldiers continued to quietly
stand at attention. And again, at the same point, the music stopped. What
would you expect to happen? Even here I would imagine laughter as everyone
sat down and expected the movie to start.

Here, you could have heard a pin drop. Every Soldier stood at
attention. Suddenly there was a lone voice, then a dozen, and quickly the
room was filled with the voices of a thousand soldiers. "And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

It was the most inspiring moment I have had here in Iraq. I wanted you to
know what kind of Soldiers are serving you here.

Written by Chaplain Jim Higgins on 5/14/07. LSA Anaconda is at the
Balad Airport in Iraq, north of Baghdad

All I can say is God Bless our Armed Forces. They are without a doubt the best caliber of soldiers, seamen, marines, and airmen in the world.

Cowboy And Indian

Three strangers strike up a conversation in the airport passenger lounge in Bozeman,
Montana, awaiting their flights. One is an American Indian passing through from Lame Deer. Another is a Cowboy on his way to Billings for a livestock show And the third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly Arrived at Montana State University from the Middle East.

Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull. The cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table and tips his big sweat-stained hat forward over his face. The wind outside is blowing tumbleweeds around, and the old windsock is flapping; but still no plane comes.

Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly he speaks, At one time here, my people were many, but sadly, now we are few." The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward, "Once my people were few," he sneers, "and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?" The Montana cowboy shifts his toothpick to one side of his mouth and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a drawl,

"That's 'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet, But I do believe it's a-comin'."


Yes siree! For all of those hate-filled, demon possessed IslamoFascists out there, you are about to experience good ole' American cowboy vengance.

Get ready, because it's coming soon to a fake Mosque near you!!!

Political Correctness Defined

For those who are still searching for the objective definition of political correctness, allow me to offer this opinion:

Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.


I didn't write this but the unknown author has sure hit the proverbial nail squarely on the head.

Whoops! Bush Didn't Lie. Innocent Didn't Die.

So much for the liberal anti-war propaganda that there wasn't any WMDs in Iraq. According to an article found here, the vials of chemicals recently found in the UN Building in New York city are phosgene, a chemical choking agent. Where did they come from? Iraq. You know that country that we were lied to by the left and told that we attacked Iraq for no legitimate reason since, Sadam Hussein didn't have any WMDs. I wonder if this will be enough for the left to admit that they were wrong, change their position and stop slandering President Bush?

I doubt it. They are too obsessed with their hatred of him. Besides, you can't reason with someone whose capacity for reason is overcome and ruled by hatred. It's also impossible to be open minded and tolerant when one is full of hatred.

Of course, the first questions that come to mind are: what were those vials of WMD doing in the UN building in New York city? How did they get there? Not only is the UN Building a waste of space on American soil, but it appears to also be a dangerous waste of space on American soil.
