Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

The Sack Lunches
Topic: FROM THE GUNNY

Just a little tidbit forwarded to me

by my friend Gunnery Sargent M Spragg Rtd

The   Sack Lunches
  
I put my carry-on in the luggage  compartment and sat down in my assigned seat.  It was  going to be a  long flight.. 'I'm glad I have a good book to read Perhaps I will get a short  nap,' I thought.
  
 Just before take-off, a line of  soldiers came down the aisle and
 filled all the vacant seats, totally  surrounding me.  I decided to  
 start a   conversation.  'Where are you headed?' I asked the soldier seated  nearest to me.
  
 'Petawawa.  We'll be there for two  weeks for special training, and then we're being deployed to Afghanistan
  
 After  flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were  available for five dollars.  It would be several hours before we reached  the east, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the  time..
  
 As I reached for my wallet, I overheard soldier  ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch.  'No, that seems like a lot  of money for just a sack lunch. Probably  wouldn't be worth five bucks.   I'll wait till we get to base '
  
 His friend  agreed.
  
I looked around at the other soldiers.    None were buying lunch.  I walked to the back of the plane and  handed the flight attendant a fifty dollar bill.   'Take a lunch to  all those soldiers.'  She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly.  Her  eyes wet with tears, she thanked me.  'My son was a soldier in Iraq ; it's almost like you are doing  it for   him.'
  
Picking  up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated.  &nb sp; She stopped at my seat and asked, 'Which do you like best -  beef or chicken?'
  
'Chicken,' I replied, wondering why she  asked.  She turned and went to the front of plane, returning a minute later  with a dinner plate from first class.  'This is your  thanks.'
  
After we finished eating, I went again to the back  of the plane, heading for the rest room.  A  man stopped me.  'I  saw what you did.  I want to be part of it.  Here, take this.'   He handed me twenty-five dollars.
  
Soon after I returned  to my  seat, I saw the Flight Captain coming down  the   aisle,  looking  at the aisle numbers as he walked, I hoped he was not looking   for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the  plane.  When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand, and  said, 'I want to shake your hand.'
  
Quickly unfastening my  seatbelt I stood and took the Captain's hand.  With a booming voice he  said, 'I was a soldier and I was a military pilot. Once, someone bought me a  lunch.  It was an act of kindness I never forgot.'  I was embarrassed  when applause was heard from all of the passengers.
  
Later I  walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs.   A  man who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting  to shake mine.  He left another twenty-five dollars in my  palm.
  
When we landed I gathered my belongings and started to  deplane.  Waiting just inside the airplane door was a man who stopped me,  put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word.   Another twenty-five dollars!
  
Upon entering the  terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base.  I  walked over to them and handed them seventy-five dollars. 'It will take you some  time to reach the base. It will be about time for a sandwich.  God Bless  You.'
  
Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and  respect of their fellow travelers.  As I walked briskly to my car, I  whispered a prayer for their safe return.  These soldiers were giving their  all for our country.  I could only give  them a couple of  meals.
  
It seemed so little...
  
A veteran is  someone who, at one point in his life,   wrote  a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an  amount of 'up to and including my life.'
  
That is Honor,  and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand  it.'  
 May God give you the strength and courage to pass  this along to everyone on your email buddy list....
I JUST  DID

America's Answer to the Crisis
Topic: Out of Flyover Land
America has faced challenges and adversity,

To a far greater extent than we do today.

Out of the Past,

From the Time of the Great Depression and the Dustbowl,

Sounds a voice to remind us what REAL Americans do in Crisis.

I AM JOE

This is  a post in solidarity with Iowahawk and Joe 'the Plumber' Wurzelbacher

 

 

 

 Iowa Hawk's orignating post is as follows

 

First, a pre-emptive apology for the intentional non-humor to follow. I promise that all future non-humor will be strictly unintentional.

We've all witnessed a lot of insanity in American politics over the last few years. Up until the last few days, none of it has seriously bothered me; hey, just more grist for the satire mill. But after witnessing the media's blitzkreig on Joe 'the Plumber' Wurzelbacher, I can only muster anger, and no small amount of fear.

Politicians -- Sarah Palin, Bill Clinton, et al. --  obviously have to put up with some rude, nasty shit, but it's  right there in the jobs description. Joe the Plumber is different. He was a guy tossing a football with his kid in the front yard of his $125,000 house when a politician picked him out as a prop for a 30 second newsbite for the cable news cameras. Joe simply had the temerity to speak truth (or, if you prefer, an uninformed opinion) to power, for which the politico-media axis apparently determined that he must be humiliated, harassed, smashed, destroyed. The viciousness and glee with which they set about the task ought to concern anyone who still cares about citizen participation, and freedom of speech, and all that old crap they taught in Civics class before politics turned into Narrative Deathrace 3000, and Web 2.0 turned into Berlin 1932.0.

Godwin's Law! you say? if the jackboot fits, wear it.

If it's meta-memes and meta-meta-narratives these media headlice want, so be it. I hope you will join me in expressing a simple bit of solidarity with this guy, Spartacus style. I AM JOE. I am a Wal Mart schlub in flyover country who changes my own oil and unclogs drains without a license. I smoke and drink beer and toss the football in the front yard with my kid, and I figure I can fend my way without handouts from some Magic Messiah's candy bags. Most everyone in my family and most everyone I grew up with is another Joe, and if you screw with them, you screw with me.

Are you a Joe? Say it proud. Leave it on every goddamn newspaper comment section and online forum. Let these pressroom and online thugs know you won't stay silent when they try to destroy the life of a private citizen for speaking his mind -- because for every one of them, there are a million Joe Wurzelbachers. And for that we should all be thankful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am Joe also.  I come from a long line of Joes and Josephines if you will and I am ALSO seeeing Red at the sight of the events that Iowahawk alludes to and I am going to VOTE Red.

It depends on what the meaning of 'tax cut' is.

Murtha Stuck On Stupid

My Nominee for the 2008 Stuck On Stupid Awards

Is Congressman John Murtha

 

When I first read about this, Courtesy of the Associated Press

Murtha: Western Pa. 'racist' but Obama should win

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic Rep. John Murtha said Wednesday his home base of western Pennsylvania is racist and that could reduce Barack Obama's victory margin in the state by 4 percentage points.

The 17-term Democratic congressman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in a story posted Wednesday on its Web site: "There is no question that western Pennsylvania is a racist area."

I thought, it's a good thing this guy is not running for office this year.

But guess what?  He IS running and his opposition is not unimpressive.

Lt. Col William T Russell

a man who will Stand Up for Western PA

Join the Russell Brigade

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words


After the evidence of what I have decided to call the

Howard Stern Effect,


Which seems to be the polar opposite of the notorious

Bradley Effect.

I have decided that at least some of the electorate

Needs to have things shown to them, in shall we say

a simpler manner.

The Chinese had a saying,
"A Picture is worth a thousand words."
So here for their enlightenment is
Obama's Tax Reductions


 

 

Hat Tip No Pasarn!
 What Leftists Mean When they Say that they'll Cut you Taxes


Now for those who may have progressed past the level of

Look Look
See Barack
See Barack Run

Run Barack Run


The Wall Street Journal has an indepth article from which the above
photo is taken called

Obama's 95% Illusion

It depends on what the meaning of 'tax cut' is.

They Think It's THEIR Money
And Update to my previous Post
You Thought It Was YOUR Money?

Do you recall how they foam at the mouth whenever

a Tax Cut is mentioned and shriek about all the money
the Republicans are GIVING to the Rich People?

Two problems here.  Does this guy look like a rich
dude?  And if you let me keep more of what was
mine in the first place you have Given me NOTHING!


It would appear that we now have a new Poltical Icon
Joe the Plumber. featured prominently in the last Presidential Debate.

Topic: Demo Fables
It's not that he wants to punish our success,

it's just that he can't give our money away,

if he let's us keep it.

He just doesn't have any choice
since he wants to "spread the wealth around"
