Like I said the eeevil leftwong pundits are trying to get Americans killed and that makes them murderes.

Mabey their should be a class action law suit against the newsmedia for reckless endangerment. God knows that they can be sued since their is no constitution. Anyway here is a letter published in USA today that was e-mailed to me by the Bush campaign.

A Marine sees what defeatists don't By Ben Connable
RAMADI, Iraq — This is my third deployment with the 1st Marine Division to the Middle East.
This is the third time I've heard the quavering cries of the talking heads predicting failure and calling for withdrawal.
This is the third time I find myself shaking my head in disbelief.
Setbacks and tragedy are part and parcel of war and must be accepted on the battlefield. We can and will achieve our goals in Iraq.
Waiting for war in the Saudi Arabian desert as a young corporal in 1991, I recall reading news clippings portending massive tank battles, fiery death from Saddam Hussein's "flame trenches" and bitter defeat at the hands of the fourth-largest army in the world. My platoon was told to expect 75% casualties. Being Marines and, therefore, naturally cocky, we still felt pretty good about our abilities.
The panicky predictions failed to come true. The flame trenches sputtered. Nobody from my platoon died. Strength, ingenuity and willpower won the day. Crushing the fourth-largest army in the world in four days seemed to crush the doubts back home.
Twelve years passed, during which time America was faced with frustrating actions in Somalia and the Balkans. Doubt had begun to creep back into public debate.
In the spring of last year, I was a Marine captain, back with the division for Operation Iraqi Freedom. As I waited for war in the desert, just 100 miles to the north from our stepping-off point in 1991, I was again subjected to the panicky analyses of talking heads. There weren't enough troops to do the job, the oil fields would be destroyed, we couldn't fight in urban terrain, our offensive would grind to a halt, and we should expect more than 10,000 casualties.
Remembering my experience in Desert Storm, I took these assessments with a grain of salt. As a staff officer in the division command post, I was able to follow the larger battle as we moved forward. I knew that our tempo was keeping the enemy on his heels and that our plan would lead us to victory.
But war is never clean and simple. Mourning our losses quietly, the Marines drove to Baghdad, then to Tikrit, liberating the Iraqi people while losing fewer men than were lost in Desert Storm.
In May of last year, I was sitting with some fellow officers back in Diwaniyah, Iraq, the offensive successful and the country liberated from Saddam. I received a copy of a March 30 U.S. newspaper on Iraq in an old package that had finally made its way to the front. The stories: horror in Nasariyah, faltering supply lines and demonstrations in Cairo. The mood of the paper was impenetrably gloomy, and predictions of disaster abounded. The offensive was stalled; everyone was running out of supplies; we would be forced to withdraw.
The Arab world was about to ignite into a fireball of rage, and the Middle East was on the verge of collapse. If I had read those stories on March 30, I would have had a tough time either restraining my laughter or, conversely, falling into a funk. I was concerned about the bizarre kaleidoscope image of Iraq presented to the American people by writers viewing the world through a soda straw.
Returning to Iraq this past February, I knew that the Marines had a tremendous opportunity to follow through on our promises to the Iraqi people.
Believing in the mission, many Marines volunteered to return. I again found myself in the division headquarters.
Just weeks ago, I read that the supply lines were cut, ammunition and food were dwindling, the "Sunni Triangle" was exploding, cleric Muqtada al-Sadr was leading a widespread Shiite revolt, and the country was nearing civil war.
As I write this, the supply lines are open, there's plenty of ammunition and food, the Sunni Triangle is back to status quo, and Sadr is marginalized in Najaf. Once again, dire predictions of failure and disaster have been dismissed by American willpower and military professionalism.
War is inherently ugly and dramatic. I don't blame reporters for focusing on the burning vehicles, the mutilated bodies or the personal tragedies. The editors have little choice but to print the photos from the Abu Ghraib prison and the tales of the insurgency in Fallujah. These things sell news and remind us of the sober reality of our commitment to the Iraqi people. The actions of our armed forces are rightfully subject to scrutiny.
I am not ignorant of the political issues, either. But as a professional, I have the luxury of putting politics aside and focusing on the task at hand. Protecting people from terrorists and criminals while building schools and lasting friendships is a good mission, no matter what brush it's tarred with.
Nothing any talking head will say can deter me or my fellow Marines from caring about the people of Iraq, or take away from the sacrifices of our comrades. Fear in the face of adversity is human nature, and many people who take the counsel of their fears speak today. We are not deaf to their cries; neither do we take heed. All we ask is that Americans stand by us by supporting not just the troops, but also the mission.
We'll take care of the rest.
Maj. Ben Connable is serving as a foreign-area officer and intelligence officer with the 1st Marine Division.

Book Report

The Shiva Option:

My favorite theme these days. Total annihilation. This is a book about mankind faced with the ultimate challenge. A species of life with which there is no communicating, blunders into mankind and inspite of every effort by men to open channels of communication the aliens won't or can't negotiate. Sound familiar? God won't talk with the world so the world thinks-only God is at the door to every mans heart knocking but it turns out that the world won't hear-or is it cannot hear? Hm. Makes me wonder who the aliens are in this book. Mankind as the world knows it or the Aliens. Anyway. At the end of a two book series mankind and mans allies triumph but at a horrendous cost in lives and materiel. Of course the warriors sick of death and mayhem wax philosophic so here is an excerpt from fiction that rings true concerning warriors that are true to themselves and their real cause and purpose in this day and age.

"And when I realized what he was doing and why' I could no longer hate him,mightily though I tried. Oh, how I cherished my hate! It kept me warm, filled me with purpose and the passion of rage, and in the end,the killer of my khanhaku had taken even that from me, for he had reminded me that the true warrior fights not from hate, but from love. Not to destroy, but always and above all to preserve. Do you understand that Raaymmonnd?"

I would like to add that my purpose as a so to speak warrior, is not just to preserve but to restore that which God gave us to begin with. Not just a document; which has unknowingly to the rest of the people in this 6 million square mile plus hunk of realestate known as the United States of America, has been turned into an interesting historical piece, but our way of life and exemplified our very attitude towards living and each other. A government based on a set of ideals that were nearly perfect in their origin but which greedy or intellectual men have reasondly bastdardized into what they think of as utopian in nature and in the meantime basically stepping on the toes of the vast majority of the people in our once great nation.

Because we have not kept the constitution we basically have no rights because there is no one to uphold them defend them then there is no document. No document, no government. No government-then it is only a matter of time until this nation folds up and collapses of it's own weight. I hope it is out with a bang rather than a whimper, I am that angry with the betrayal, but that is neither here nor there. That it will happen is not in question unless I and the few million that feel like me are successful in convincing the people to get up off of their butts and crush any-illegitimate intellectual who thinks that they know the way to utopia . @#$%^%$# they don't. That's a capital @#$%^%$#!

What? Is Blogspot and haloscan going nuts?



Rocks versus Grass

No compromise. I will not compromise concerning God's ideals of what we should be accomplishing concernig perfection. Rock. Ever.

Too bad my internet service just cut off cause you people just missed out on a good lecture concerning right from wrong.

The Television show "Extreme Home Makeover" is an excellent example of what I mean by right from wrong and the effort on my part to explain the limitations that this world has in all things.

Jesus says that "all things in moderation". I want you to notice that he does not say some things in moderation but all things. Paul gives us a helpful understanding of what this means when he says that "all things are lawful but not all things are edifying". In other words he could participate in homosexual behavior but because he loved Jesus and consequently the Father, and knew that God did not approve of any homosexual behavior; he would have nothing to do with it.

The ten commandments are sacrosanct. No compromise. The things spelled out in Moses law. No give. And that includes by the way an eye for an eye.

Extreme home makeover is an excellent show because these people when they finish with a job and get to give the home back to the homeowner,with tears of joy in their eye's have found something that they need to understand is a blessing from God. Those tears of joy come out of God's love for them. They have found God's love and consequently need to understand that this is what they were looking for all their lives. Rock!

Jesus gives probably one of the most important insights into our selves when he tells us to obey his commandments and that we "shall know the truth, and the truth shall set us free".

Wait a minute you say. Isn't one of those people on that show a homosexual and aren't the rest lazy ok with promiscuity. Yup! How do you know that, you ask? I am what I am( not to be confused with , I am that I am) Well how can you accept their works over a Christians works?
God loves them and has given them a great gift of giving that supersedes my own sinful desire to be judgmental. Besides the show is not about their bedroom antics and they keep it that way. It is not about them but the giving that they can accomplish. And I would never take away from them the blessing that God gives to them of joy and the healing in their hearts that comes of the welling up of love. No compromise. Rock! Is that salvation? No. Rock!

Salvation comes upon the realization that we do not have access to heaven or to the Father but by the only one who ever lived a perfect life. Jesus. The knowledge that he is God and that only by him do we have the right to access the Father. The Creator. Love. No blessing can be had except it be given of God. Love. Rock!

A blade of grass, that is a person who would compromise this precept would say that everyone is going to heaven. Yeah right. They may get a momentary taste of heaven during their time of judgment. But that will be it. In fact the reason there may be weaping and gnashing of teath outside the gates is because of that momentary taste.

Ulp-date on Neck Surgery

Well I am coming along. For the most part I have gotten rid of my pneumonia but I still wake up with a little fluid in my Right lung. The muscles around my lower right lobe of the right lung are a little sore from the cramping and coughing but going away.

My neck is and left hip are sore and I still can't get comfortabe in a regular bed so I am sleeping in my recliner which is annoying.

The Doc gave me a soft collar to wear around the house and is a slight improvement over the hard collar which is a major pain in the gluteous. It holds my head at about a 10 degree cant looking up at the ceiling. I hate that and if I am not thinking about it I find mysel fighting it so my lower jaw is a little sore .

I'm bored out of my squash and I have been playing PC games until I'm sick of that also.

I appreciate all the prayers and God has been central to my thoughts continuously throughout this ordeal.

God bless all of you.

Back on line.

Just another pathetic attempt on my part to speriment with my blog.

What do you mean no womand-I mean WMD?

I hate the acronym WMD. They are NBC or nuclear, chemical, biological weapons. By their nature chemical weapons do no destruction. They just kill people.


BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - A roadside bomb containing deadly sarin nerve agent exploded near a U.S. military convoy, the U.S. military said Monday. It was apparently a leftover from the Saddam era arsenal, but it was uncertain if more such weapons were in the hands of insurgents.

Ann Coulter strikes again BAAAM

Crazy-Like-A-Fox News Viewer
Ann Coulter

Last year papers were found in Iraqi intelligence headquarters documenting Saddam's feverish efforts to establish a working relationship with al-Qaida. In response to Iraq's generous invitation to pay all travel and hotel expenses, a top aide to Osama bin Laden visited Iraq in 1998, bearing a message from bin Laden. The meeting went so well that bin Laden's aide stayed for a week. Iraq intelligence officers sent a message back to bin Laden, the documents note, concerning "the future of our relationship."
In addition, according to Czech intelligence, a few months before the 9-11 attacks, Mohammed Atta met with Iraqi intelligence agents in Prague.
Finally, a Clinton-appointed federal judge, U.S. District Court judge Harold Baer, has made a legal finding that Iraq was behind the 9-11 attacks -- a ruling upheld by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals last October. When some judge discovers a right to gay marriage in a 200-year-old document written by John Adams, Americans are forced to treat the decision like the God-given truth. But when a federal judge issues a decision concluding that Iraq was behind the 9-11 attacks, it is a "misperception" being foisted on the nation by Fox News Channel.

David Kay's report said we hadn't found "stockpiles" of WMDs in Iraq, but we have found:

-- chemical and biological weapons systems, plans, "recipes" and equipment, all of which could have resumed production on a moment's notice with Saddam's approval;
-- reference strains of a wide variety of biological-weapons agents (found in the home of a prominent Iraqi biological warfare scientist);
-- new research on brucella and Congo-Crimean hemorrhagic fever, and continuing work on ricin and aflatoxin;
-- a prison laboratory complex for testing biological weapons on humans;
-- long-range missiles (prohibited by United Nations resolutions) suitable for delivering WMDs;
-- documents showing Saddam tried to obtain long-range ballistic missiles from North Korea;
-- facilities for manufacturing fuel propellant useful only for prohibited Scud-variant missiles.
Sorry to bore Fox News viewers with these facts. I'm doing it as a favor to readers of the Los Angeles Times.

Liars and power mongers

While the Demoncrats (not misspelled by accident) left are screeching about the atrocity that occurred in a now not obscure prison committed by American military and intelligence personel they continue to ignore the same atrocities committed by their own liberal supporters here in the not so good ol USA. In the colleges and left hearted (Ecc 10:2 A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left. ) institutions; as in my just previous blog states; that if these skunks and stinky snakes don't pull the board out of their own eye
(Mat 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?) , and if America doesn't let them go (ie. fire them permanently) they will pull this nation down to secondary status and we the people instead of being independent from the rest of the world. We whose ancestors fled European Tierney ( a derivative of the word terror by the way) will once again be beholden to the European idiots that got us into WWI and WWII and without a strong U.S, there won't be anyone to come to the rescue.

If it were a matter of the U.S. being left alone that would be no big deal but the fact that these left wing nutzi's want to enslave the U.S. economy for their own greedy purposes at least that appears to be their goal.
At the very least they lack any understanding at all of what make the American economy go. It is you and I the worker. We by our ingenuity and hard work earning a living with an eye towards ever increasing labor saving and efficiency that makes this economy work. Not the love of money but the drive towards freedom that is the desire of men on earth.
This drive and productivity comes from a residual for honesty and the desire to do the will of, you guessed it, God, by his Son Jesus Christ. The desire to do right is a gift out of God which he bequeaths upon a man immediately upon asking Jesus to save them.

These left demoncrats (small case on purpose) think that if people would just do the things; modified of course, that Christians do then they could be just a successful. Unfortunately the opposite is true as exemplified in the dramatically increased crime rates including rapes, molestations, and incest. To me; crimes which needs the punishment of the perpetrators hung by their balls.
