What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease. Hence his victories bring him neither reputation for wisdom nor credit for courage. He wins his battles by making no mistakes. Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated. Hence the skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible, and does not miss the moment for defeating the enemy. Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.

I am so nervous.. Its been a long long day, Woke up early this morning did some minor PT (nothing that would aggrivate my collar bone so no one yell at me!) Then I laid back down, then got back up *snicker* did that a couple times til I finally had to get my ass to therapy. God Love Sean he's a riot.. makes me feel like a total weakling but he's a riot. Anyway after half an hour of torture (See: Physical Therapy) I took my sorry ass on over to catch up with a bunch of buds who let me catch a cadence run with them, I so fucking needed the pickup. Anyway, in about 95 minutes it'll be official.. at 2100Hrs on the East Coast, Brian'll be through the Crucible, and a fullstop Marine... I'm so damn proud of him, and I can't wait until that clock ticks past and its over. After this its tan belt martial arts testing and a few small misc things THEN he gets Liberty on Sunday! I can't wait to talk to him, we've gone almost five months with only 2 five minute phone calls.. in that five months when we couldn't talk, we both were seriously injured, believe me it sucks to put it mildly. *big breath* God in Heaven I can't wait to hear his voice... his growl.. And I keep staring at the clock, waiting... waiting... waiting.. God god god, I can NOT wait til it kicks through the last hour and a half, I can't wait to know he did it. I knew he'd make it all along even through several of his buddies suicide attempts, his collarbone broken in 3 places, his original platoon graduating, the tornado that ripped through the opposite barracks the first week he was there... The insane 108 degree temps... Parris Island is fucking tough ANY trip through.. But His trip is the kind of thing that sets Marines apart from everyone else in the world. There's a reason the Marine Corps is Number One. The Best, The Toughest, and the Elite. Who needs special forces when even your dirtiest grunt can do the job of 5 five men?

Yahoo! Clubs If you want to get reeeaally picky, I can say you have no way of knowning what death is unless you've experienced it, and therefore can not define the seperation between dead and living. === end quote

Wow. You know, she's actually obviously very intelligent... good at stirring up shit, causing fights and making people think, HOWEVER its all total bullshit. The one thing she was knocking.. Her words are total bullshit. I almost.. almost want to admire her. Antagonistic thats for sure. However... philosophy spewers will only end up dead in the long run, maybe THEY can come back and tell us what death is?

Those who don't believe in honor have none Or Mmm Lyn says it better? Uhm..probably LOL Its hard to understand Honor when you don't posess it

I thought some about it and realize Lyn's right. There is a reason *I* Don't steal from stores or break into people's houses, or even kill stupid people. *nods* You know what it is. I know what it is. My Son will know what it is. No, I understand that not all people have nor understand honor, courage or love or respect. Maybe they aren't smart enough, maybe their parents didn't teach them the correct values as a child. *shrugs* Whatever the reason may be, I am not going to let it bother me anymore. I've never let stupid people bother me this much before, why start now? I am better than that, better than them. That simple.

Start HereThat is all quoted from Cyn's Blog and I thought I would put it here. She quotes me a lot and I have to expand on this. There is a reason she and I had this discussion, We are people who Value Honor and Love and Trust, We Honor Courage and Committment. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt what moral Standards are. They do NOT need to be "sex before marriage" or "birth control" or "going to church every sunday" Moral standards are a code of conduct we all follow. Those of us who were raised properly (I myself was raised by an incredible Mother. Who Actually knew what it meant to be a parent), or who had the fortunate chance to learn it as we grew, posses a strong Moral Code, and that code isn't the same for each person. However.. Its those people who know nothing of themselves or the world, or things like Honor that have yet to figure out what morals or a moral code means.

I had sex before marriage, I still do. I drink, I party, and I will kill in the name of my country, HOWEVER I have strict morals. I have been bashed by flower loving critics who have no concept of anything other than their materialistic needs, but Its MY Soul, My Heart, My Life I Put on the Line to give creatures who I feel are a waste of space, the chance to try and turn their lives around. I can touch Honor, I can touch Courage and Pride and Patriotism, They are as real and tangible as the air I breathe, the life I live, and the soul that I am. I see these things in the eyes of dearest friends, I feel the heat of it in my lover's touch, and I see the birth of it in the children playing in the school lot, the children who don't always pick the ugly kid last... the children who wave the flag at parades.. the children who say "I can't blame Marcy Mrs Smith, she's my friend. I did it."

*sly grin* Sent from Cyn via Email, I've seen this joke before though the new twist kicks ass.

THE GREAT WALL --An American Dream !!!!!...

Three guys, a Canadian, Osama Bin Ladin and Uncle Sam are out walking together one day. They come across a lantern and a Genie pops out of it.
"I will give each of you each one wish, that's three wishes total," says
the Genie.

The Canadian says, "I am a farmer, my dad was a farmer, and my son will also farm. I want the land to be forever fertile in Canada."

With a blink of the Genie's eye, 'POOF' the land in Canada was forever made fertile for farming.

Osama Bin Ladin was amazed, so he said, "I want a wall around Afganistan, so that no infidels, Jews or Americans can come into our precious state."

Again, with a blink of the Genie's eye, 'POOF' there was a huge wall
around Afganistan.

"Uncle Sam" (A former civil engineer), asks, "I'm very curious. Please
tell me more about this wall."

The Genie explains, "Well, it's about 15,000 feet high, 500 feet thick
and completely surrounds the country; nothing or nobody can get in or out---virtually impenetrable."

"UncleSam" says, "Fill it with water."

Ayiiiiie. 1734 and I'm just now getting some computer access, at least its some right?! Brand new computer however I'm not sure I like it, its doing this weird flickering thing when I type.... No Idea what that is? If anyone knows, I'd love to hear from you! The flickering is anytime I hit a key, other than that the display is perfect. Did I just not notice flickering on my old computer? Anyway, it also makes this odd mousetrail sound I can't quite get rid of either.. again, if anyone knows please please drop me a line. Will explain "The" Story of all these computers later, for now though, I only ended up at this page because I was reinstalling blog this into my links bar *g*

***Note, added a moment later*** It does a little flickering just with mouse movement too. Mmmmmm. I use adobe gamma to straighten out colors is this an offset of a weird setting? Any help would be much loved! Thanks Guys.
