Honoring Heroes

arlington 3
Happy Birthday America! I want to thank all those who have, and now are, serving our nation, putting themselves in peril so that all of us can enjoy the fruits of their labor and sacrifice. I try to never take the freedom we enjoy for granted, but mostly, I fall short of that goal. It's so easy to get caught up in the hectic pace of everyday life that we tend to forget what we have and why we have it. So many have bled and died so that we can gather with our families and friends and have our BBQ's at the beach. The least we can do is to remember their service and sacrifice once a year on Independence Day, the birthday of the greatest country ever devised. Regardless of your political persuasion, I think we can all agree that the real heroes that are deserving of our admiration don't wear jock straps or cinematic make-up, or sing into microphones; they are the millions of unsung, regular folks who stepped forward and saved our Republic every time it's been threatened and in so doing, saved the world from evil. These same unsung heroes continue to fight the forces of unspeakable evil today and as they have done in the past, they will do it again and save this world from the insanity of Islamo-fascism that wants nothing but to destroy it. As Bill Bennett says in his latest book, America is the last best hope for the world. We are the greatest country ever to exist and I'm glad and grateful that there have been, and continue to be those who are willing to acknowledge that and fight for it.

Thank you and God Bless America!

Copy that, Scud. You are absolutely correct. God bless our troops and veterans. They are the best.

Jeff said...

scud: the picture you chose for your Memorial Day remembrance features hundreds of French tricolor flags. Why do you hate America?

Anonymous said...

That makes a lot of sense. He's got some French flags in the picture so naturally he hates America. Jeff, nothing personal, but are you really as miserable as you come across to be? Does life really suck that bad?

scud said...

Thank you Jeff!
Once again, you've missed the point, and in so doing, proved another. You are consistent.

Jeff said...

scud: you and anonymous are languishing with pre-9/11 mindsets. France used to be our oldest and dearest ally. When Dear Leader claimed Hussein had WMD, the French said "no" so we renamed our fries. That's kind of mentality we need to win this war. Why do you still hate America?

jeff said...

I hate America because I'm a liberal and a Proud Member of the Society for the Advancement of the Brain Damaged. I'm a securalist, agnostic, amoral, insect-stupid waste of skin who quotes CNN presidential approval polls as hard fact. I am, for lack of a better description, a world class dick. However, I cannot change and never will. I represent the horror that constitutes modern day liberalism. Love me or hate me, it does not matter for I'm analogous to Herpes....always right around the corner and will never go away.

Jeff said...

scud: I'd offer to imitate you but it would be impossible to make you sound more any more foolish...

jeff said...

Um, Scud did not write that...I did. What's the problem dude? Say, what's W's approval rating at?

GWB: Greatest. President. Ever.

Libs: Greasiest. Cockroaches. Ever.

Jeff said...

scud: one thing missing in your imitations is the incredibly low standard to which I hold the President. He's a moron. It's like working with a retard. You have to say his name alot so he knows you're talking to him. I didn't expect Georgie to get his little head around the bill on which he used his firstest, everest veto. Federal funds will eventually be granted to additional lines. This jackass simply delayed the inevitable by eight years. Despite your unwavering support for this idiot, I hope you don't die four years shy of a cure for what ails you because Shifferbrains tried to make a point that only he can understand. Christ, if Frist gets it, then anyone can.

scooterlib said...

So GWB vetoed the Stem Cell Bill. It would appear the Axis of Idiots, comprised of the Bush Administration and the Republican controlled House and Senate, have won another skirmish in their ongoing battle against science.

Jeff said...

Scud, can you think of any war plans in the annals of U.S. military history that were more poorly designed than the invasion and occupaction of Iraq?

jeff said...

Yeah, the world was a whole lot better with Saddam in power. I miss him too. Now lets see, what was the little conflict that took place around 1965 to 1975, thanks to another worthless Dumpocrat, um, someplace in Southeast Asia I think, I just can't quite remember......

Yep, the WOT is a TOTAL FAILURE. Just look at all the acts of terror that have happened on U.S. soil since 9/11......

GREATEST. PRESIDENT. EVER.

Jeff said...

scud: the world was a lot better when Iran was kept in check. Chimpy's strategy - and by strategy I mean something he concocted on the toilet with a copy of Teen Beat in his lap - handed regional hegemony to Tehran. Only a year ago, the Cedar Revolution left Iran and Syria on the outside looking in. Today Hezbollah is the sole defender of Lebanese sovereignty. Heckuva job, Chimpy.

While I would never defend the Vietnam war, Bush War II looks like a Banana Repbulic coup d'etat in comparison.

Mr. Ithurtswhenipee said...

Damn, it's been over a month since scud's last display of lunacy. He takes longer vacations than that asshole in the Whitehouse.

rightard said...

Greetings and salutations Scud. I trust your summer is going well. I see the Lib Dem garbage infestation is still an issue on your site. How's my summer going you ask? Awesome, tons of golf at some of the best courses in the U.S. Lots of lake time in my Malibu Response LXi. It just does not get any better. Now, I guess I have to spend a few minutes poking at the losers like Jeff (proud member of Dipsh*ts 'R Us), it's all so boring and pointless. Hey Jeff, have you read "Godless" by Coulter yet? Afraid to? It describes you perfectly. These are tough days for Libs: legal setbacks for stem cell research and same sex marriage, Iraq, racial profiling, global warming, animals being brutalized, on and on. You just can't kill those babies fast enough. Take heart Lib Dem Trash, the political forecasters have spotted Hurricane Hillary on the horizon....oh what glory that would be. I'm quivering at the thought.

jeff the righteous said...

Chimpy this and chimpy that. Blah, blah, blah. Just to differentiate between the two of us Jeffs from this day forward I will be known as Jeff The Righteous and the other Jeff, the certifiably insane Jeff, shall be named Jeff The Godless. Works for you Jeff? Good, I'm so glad. So here's Jeff The Godless mocking a guy who has achieved the Presidency of the United States, calling him an idiot and a moron. And then there's Jeff The Godless. A virtual nothing in the world, a loser by anyone's standards. A nobody who has his very own worthless blog site. Congrats Jeff The Godless, you're a real success.

Anonymous said...

I'm guessing Jeff The Godless is a single, white male, relatively low self-esteem, dead end career, we all know the type. They make great serial killers.....

jeff the righteous said...

Copy that Anonymous, probably a drunk as well.....

Jeff said...

On the way home from a mixed-doubles match, my wife complained about her performance. I told her tennis was a results-based activity. We won and that's all that mattered. Unlike Righteous, I've never been impressed by anyone who simply walked onto the club courts.

Yes, George W. Bush's resume is filled with some impressive titles but don't conflate job titles with job accomplishments. Despite his redneck persona, Chimpy is a pure New England blue blood. His ability to overcome Old Money in order to reach the Oval Office pales in comparison to Reagan's climb, don't you think? Bush was a mediocre Yale legacy, a failed businessman, a failed drinker and a failed President. He was probably a failed governor, too, but I neither know enough nor care enough about Texas in order to render a fair evaluation.

Oh, and um, Righteous: There are probably thousands of deities, but I believe in just one less god than you.

Richard "Big Dick" Cheney said...

Lieberman lost- RED ALERT (repeat) RED ALERT....RED ALERT (repeat) RED ALERT...

this message brought to you by the GOP.

Jeff said...

RED ALERT! Georgie Bush just put the country on its firstest, everest RED ALERT! Shouldn't we boil water or something??

We gotta do something. Come on, who's with me? Sheesh. Why do you guys hate America?

scud said...

I, for one, am going to take this opportunity to better serve my country by enlisting in the armed forces....neh, just kidding...suckers.

rightard said...

Jeff plays tennis. Why doesn't that surprise me......

jeff the righteous said...

Actually, what surprises me is that he supposedly is married. I hope there is no offspring. One can only imagine in horror what sort of child would be produced from such a vile environment. Jeff, an atheistic, self-absorbed, cynical, sarcastic, foul-mouthed, disrespectful drone trying to raise a child. Now that's a hideous thought. We've got enough sociopathic kids in society...we don't need anymore. Spend a few minutes in "Blog Day Afternoon" (whoa, very clever) and you'll understand what I'm talking about. Some people should not be allowed to breed. There's Jeff, sitting at the PC typing away more mindless drivel in BDA while little Jr. drowns in the bathtub.

"We've got enough sociopathic kids in society...we don't need anymore."

Sure you need them, they're the future of the Republican Party.

Jeff said...

I can't deny that I'm a "atheistic, self-absorbed, cynical, sarcastic, foul-mouthed" person, but I draw the line at "disrespectful drone" largely because I have NO idea what that means. Sure, I disrespect the President but who doesn't? The guy can't eat a pretzel without hurting himself.

Oh, and, rightard: tennis is second only to skiing in my book. My favorite surface is clay. This information shouldn't surprise you. Tennis is very popular in the the Northeast.

Anonymous said...

So you don't have kids.....thank God.

jeff the righteous said...

Good, the little drip actually is admitting to what he is. Always the first step on the long road to recovery.

Jeff said...

Funny, I feel no need for recovery but I could use some relief from this stinkin' heat. It's hot as balls in up here. I can't imagine what's its like down there in Alabamy or whatever red state you guys call home...

"Hot as balls". I gotta write that one down.
