The Truth in Iraq - A Must Read.

17: SFC Bowman with Kurilla
Michaeal Yon is a writer that is in Iraq and honestly and candidly gives his experiences via his Blog. This is some amazing stuff and should be read by every American. I wish it could be read regularily on school campuses to try to counter the perpetual lies that are poluting kids minds daily. this article reminds us all of the heroism that is daily excersized by our military and the level of care and compassion they show to even the worst of our enemies. The hate America first ideologs from the left should read this, but they won't. And even if they did, it would be dismissed as lies and/or propaganda from the evil administration. But everyone else should take the time to follow the link and get to know this guy. He tells it straight and tells the story of Iraq in a manner that is very visual.

There is no doubt, our military is made up of some amazing people who are doing incredible things and are doing them at great personal risk and sacrifice, all so we can sit in our comfotable homes and read and chat about it from thousands of miles away. Our freedom depends on these great people. They deserve our respect and support. And "support"" does not mean wanting them home! It means that we support their mission and their efforts as well. Hug a vet and thank them.

Time Out from Leftist Insanity

Sorry I haven't had time to rant recently. It takes time to send kids off to college, do yard work, run a business and have a life. It really feels necessary sometimes to tune out all the insanity of politics and not have to deal with liberal ideology. But, that's their strategy - bark loud and bark often and those of us who aren't rabid dogs will tune out the noise and stop paying attention. Well, it works. I am turning off the sick, feeble minded libs for a short time so I can enjoy life and concentrate on all the fabulous things I've been blessed with. The nasty, hate filled liberals who hide behind a false cloak of "we care", can spew their venom all they want, I won't be listening. In fact, that's probably one of the things that drives liberals nuts, that conservatives don't respond to their outrageous behavior with like minded fervor. Conservatives are, for the most part, level headed, fair-minded, hardworking people with jobs and families and spiritual faith. So when the left makes up their stupid lies and anti- American propaganda, e.g. Michael Moore, we just silently shake our heads and patiently wait for the next election where we can minimize these idiots. This angers the left because to them, since they didn't hear a major outcry of resistance to their propaganda, they assume that everyone agrees with them. Wrong. Another example of the insanity and immature self-mindedness of the left. They don't get it and they won't ever get it. e.g. Howard Dean, 99% of Hollywood and the mainstream media. e.g. The Cindy Sheehan story.

In case we tune out to the point we forget what the left is about, here's a quick reminder of what they stand for:

1. Hate George W. Bush, love anyone who professes hatred for George W. Bush.

2. Hate any and all conservatives, love progressively grows the farther left ones ideology goes, ie. socialists, communists, anarchists.

3. Hate religion, especially Christians and Jews, love atheism, and all religions that hate Christians and Jews.

4. Hate traditional family values, love all forms of alternative lifestyles, especially those that result in difficulty sitting down.

5. Hate economic progress and prosperity, love doom and gloom - makes people scared and dependent on government.

6. Hate traditional education, love alternative systems that are self esteem based, and that center on feelings, leftist propaganda and revisionist history.

7. Hate "the melting pot", love pot.

8. Hate talk radio, the internet and Fox news, love CBS, CNN, NBC, ABC, 99% of Newspapers, and Hollywood.

9. Hate human population, love animals of all kinds, especially those that hinder or eat humans.

10. Hate human influence on mother earth, love the thought of mother earth and nature without humans.

11. Hate free and fair elections, love one world socialism, and total governance by elites - who know better.

12. Hate the military, love trying to talk and reason as their throat is being cut by bad guys.

So there's a little overview of what the left stands for. I'll post more as I think of them. Time to get on with life.

Media Bias Anyone?

OK, I'll take the bait. Lets rip a grieving mother. No, maybe not. Cindy Sheehan is a woman who lost her son to terrorist zombies in Iraq. There is no way I can fully imagine what that would feel like. I would be angry I know, but I don't think I would be angry at the president. Of course it certainly is her right to blame the president if she wants to. The odd thing to me is that a year ago she had very different feelings after a personal meeting with President Bush. Apparently, she was very impressed with the president, saying that she knew he was sincere and that his condolances were genuine. She said that his visit lifted the spirits of her family. Now, her story is very different. Could it be that some helpful Bush haters got to her and suggested that her story might be different than what she originally stated? Who knows. Like I said, who am I to tell someone how to grieve for the loss of their child. I think it probably might be of some importance to mention that Sheehan's son was 24, and joined the military without any cohersion from anyone in the Bush administration.

The real story here isn't the grieving and angry mother outside the Bush ranch in Texas, but rather, the over the top media coverage it is generating. The lefties in the newsroom have another story they can run with that serves their ideological slant. There are so many cameras in Cindy Sheehan's face, it's a wonder she can breath. I really wish that just one of the alphabet channels of the left would have the common sense to give equal time to any of the hundreds of fallen soldiers' families who are proud of the mission their child was a part of, support and respect our President, and realize, even through their grief, that America is worth fighting for and Iraq and Afghanistan are part of the war on Islamic terror which ultimately will keep us safer. No one seems interested, that I've seen, in doing any counter, positive story. It's just too tempting to be the lazy liberal trash that they are and stick a camera in the face of an angry mother and listen to her spew about how President Bush killed her son. Wrong story, wrong motives, wrong message. Libs lose again.

No More "Times"

The New York Times is proving again that the main stream media has lost all credibility and short of the obituary and want ad sections, can't be trusted for accuracy or objectivity in news - actually that's because those sections are written by readers, not reporters. Apparently NYT reporters are investigating the adoptions of Supreme Court Nomonee, John Robert's two children. I'm sure this is completely above board and normal proceedure to look into adoption records. And we have to assume that when their investigation is complete, if no dirt can be found in the issue, the Times would run a positive story on the virtues of adoption and how squeeky clean Judge Roberts and his wife are, right?
Wrong! The Times, like so much of the "MSM" is absolute garbage. How dare they try to destroy a nomonee by digging into their family lives! I'm done with the Times. No more. It actually is only an occational read anyway because I've been sick of it for years, but this sent me over the edge.

At present they are trying to backpeddle their way out of it by releasing a statement saying that investigating the adoption is part of the paper's "standard background check." Bill Borders, NYT senior editor, explains: "Our reporters made initial inquiries about the adoptions, as they did about many other aspects of his background. They did so with great care, understanding the sensitivity of the issue."

Sorry Bill, this doesn't pass the smell test; "doing so" at all is the problem. If you have a beef with Roberts because he's a conservative, fine, just be honest and come out and say so. But to go after the adoption of young children is beyond disgusting even for the breed of liberals that have infested the Times.
