  • "I Got Your Back" (semi vanity)

    "I Got Your Back"

    I am a small and precious child, my dad's been sent to fight. The only place I'll see his face is in my dreams at night. He will be gone too many days for my young mind to track. I may be sad, but I am proud. My daddy's got your back.

    I am a caring mother; my son has gone to war. My mind is filled with worries that I have never known before. Everyday I try to keep my thoughts from turning black. I may be scared, but I am proud. My son has got your back.

    I am a strong and loving wife, with a husband soon to go. There are times I'm terrified, in a way most never know. I bite my lip, and force a smile, as I watch my husband pack. My heart may break, but I am proud. My husband's got your back.

    I am a soldier serving proudly, standing tall. I fight for freedom, yours and mine, by answering this call. I do my job while knowing, the thanks it sometimes lacks. Say a prayer that I'll come home soon. It's me who's got your back.

  • Navy isn’t playing games with Johnston

    Let me revise & extend...McCallum & Robinson finally wised up to serve their commitment...albeit with a bit of whine...Staubach of course served with distinction during Vietnam. The Navy, in their infinite wisdom, thought McCallum and Robinson would be more useful to the Navy as reserve officers with more notoriety because of their athletic prowess. Is that unfair to the young midshipman who gets with the program and serves in the Fleet? Life, like the military, ain’t fair.

    Neither McCallum & Robinson, IIRC, would have bumped ADM Halsey from the history books as a great naval tactician.

    The point here is that Johnston needs to wise up and serve the rest of his commitment, whether he takes the examples of McCallum/Robinson or (as we’d all hope) Staubach as an example to emulate.

    Young lieutenants do make mistakes—

    Do the names David Robinson, Napoleon McCallum and Roger Staubach ring a bell? Seems to me they also graduated from the US Naval Academy, and were professional athletes of some repute—yet they were able to balance their commitment with their athletic careers. Johnston has yet to enter that class. I’d hope some crusty old Chief Petty Officer will have a heart -to-heart talk with the LT to advise him of his error.

    That said, I’m thankful for all of the Naval Academy grads who embody the Navy Values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.

    Yet another colossal jewel of ignorance, Frum.

    I’d bet Duncan Hunter would eviscerate Frum and any other sniveling twit RINO who shares that philosophy in any forum (written or oral) which required the exchange of ideas and principles. The GOP, as it is constituted today, has few, if any of the latter, and even fewer of the former. I believe the GOP can be reconstituted with the prodding of a lot of us who share similar views. We need bold leadership..not just old leadership.

    And as for the youth...see Hillsdale College...and any Young Republican club at a institution of higher learning run by the whack job libs. Bottle that frustration and enthusiasm...blend it with a message of God, country, constitution as it was written, not interpreted, security (strong cops, strong borders, strong military), free markets, domestic energy independence using all our resources, low tax rates, back to basics education, roll back of politically based regulation, and an emphasis on personal responsibility rather than expansion of a nanny state and this message will win.

    Had to get from Las Vegas to Travis Air Force Base one time...started at the location on Tropicana in Glitter Gulch (double-double animal style with unsweet ice tea) real hungry and ordered a 3X3 animal style (triple meat & cheese) in Kettleman City...and didn’t have to eat (it seemed) until I arrived back on the East Coast.

    The location on Sepulveda Blvd. down from LAX and LA Air Force Base is burned in my memory...I can get there by the aroma itself!...and it is the first stop I make on the West Coast, when I get to LA.

    Enjoy all of the “Quality You Can Taste” whenever you can!

    With cheese, carmelized onions, tomatoes, and special sauce.

    I-N-O does not use frozen beef...and they do not use frozen french fries...but the freshly peeled Idaho kind that they cook fresh.

    That’s the best description I can give...I hope you can get to do some first hand research.

    I'd like to nominate the In-N-Out Double Double Combo--$5 and mid change--the best fast food in California, Nevada and Arizona...Get it animal style! Another honorable mention is Five Guys...where they aren't scared to give you a good portion of fresh cut french fries...and the burger is hand formed and fresh cooked.

    Let me revise and extend...

    The RhINOs in the New York Republican Party are (unfortunately) found mostly in our Senate and Assembly. Our county organizations are as useful as mammary glands on a male pig. The only reason for this is that we Republicans from the people’s republic of New York grew up with Nelson Rockefeller as a role model. We’d have done better with Barry Goldwater, and most assuredly with Ronaldus Magnus.

    But we are out there.....

    Senator Griffo typifies the kind of Republicans we have in the People’s Republic of New York—those who resemble thick skinned four legged animals with a prominent horn—a RhINO.

    His Eminence is correct.

    Dancing has no place at Holy Mass. Neither does hand-holding.

    We’re called to holiness when we receive this sacarament.

    These are outrages against the Holy Mass, perpetrated by those who want to water down the core beliefs to attract more people. The more faithful the church, the stronger it seems to be.

    My radar went off when I saw the original by-line (by Jackie Kucinich).

    Is the author related to one Dennis Kucinich? If so, is this a Democrat psywar piece trying to influence the GOPs business?

    Reading through it...seems like there’s a Boehner subtext.

    I’m hoping the GOP will tell the MSM to FOAD when they (MSM) start meddling in the selection process for RNC National Chair. That didn’t work out for us so well with open primaries.

    Agenda items, IMO

    Get rid of open primaries

    Read the Riot Act to RINOs in Congress and on the State Level (either they change or get left in the dust...)

    Dust off the late Lee Atwater’s playbook and update it with input from Mike Pence, Duncan Hunter, Bobby Jindal, Sarah Palin, Thad McCotter, Mark Sanford, Jim DeMint, Haley Barbour

    And never forget Barry Goldwater & Ronald Reagan.
