Time for Change!!!!

So it has been a while since I have posted, and since my last post there has been all kinds of things going on in this country that SCARES me. So much has been going on I do not even know where to start at. One would think I should start at the election and go from there, but if I did this post would be 50 pages long. What I am thinking I am going to do is sum up the last 6 months instead. Being the last 6 months are the Obama months.
Since his first day in office, Obama has done any and everything he can to cause the downfall of this country. Starting with the “stimulus” plan, let’s analyze the word stimulus so we are all on the same page on what we are talking about here. According to dictionary.com the meaning of stimulus is as follows:
1. Something that incites to action or exertion or quickens action, feeling, thought, etc..
2. An agent, action, or condition that elicits or accelerates a physiological or psychological activity or response
3. Something that incites or rouses to action


Ok with that being stated one would think a “stimulus” plan would do just what it says, it would stimulate the economy. Instead it has not done that, in fact things in the economy have gotten worse since the plan that needed to pass or the economy would collapse completely and the bill needed to pass so fast Congress didn’t have time to even read it. It’s amazing a plan which passed by all Democrat support in the House and only 3 Republicans in the Senate, so much for non-partisan!! Now it has been awhile since Obama has made his speeches about the plan, but if I remember correctly I think he made comments like: if we don’t pass this bill now, the car industry will go bankrupt, or this plan will save or create 5 million jobs. Well I know hindsight is 20/20 but didn’t GM and Chrysler go bankrupt? Oh and where are the new jobs? In fact what the hell does “create or save” even mean??
Now we are sitting here in an economy that sits at over 9% unemployment, even though Obama said it wouldn’t get over 8%, now I’m not a math genius but I think 9 is made then 8, but I could be wrong. Now let’s talk about GM and Chrysler. Where does the President get the balls and the power to one fire the CEO of a private company, and two the balls to say he doesn’t want “own” GM but somehow we as a country now own over 60% of GM. I call that a bit crazy!!

Now let’s move forward shall we. Let’s talk about ACORN for a minute. Now I would not normally give them a thought, but when you have a group that is going to get billions of tax dollars I think we need to talk about them. Here is a group that is under investigation for voter fraud during the election in 2008, a group that wants to take over the Census counting in 2010, and a group that Obama once was the lawyer for. Something here doesn’t smell right to me. You know when you smell a dead fish that has been lying out in the sun for a few days kind of smell. How does a company that has broken the law in numerous states, helped get the most liberal person ever elected President, and then has the balls to take over the Census count nest year. Out of all of the things ACORN has done the one that scares me the most is the Census.
Some of you out there might be saying, who cares about the Census. Well everyone in this country should be caring about this. The Census not only counts the people of this country, but they set the districts used by congress. What does that mean you say? Well when the number of people in a state changes enough, more districts can be added to that state to be represented in congress, and just the opposite if the number shrinks from the last count. So here we have a group that is willing to commit fraud to get Obama elected, so what’s there to say they won’t lie to get the numbers in the “red” states to change in the favor of becoming “blue?”
For those of you that do not know or can’t tell by the title of my blog, I have been in the military since the age 19, that’s 12 years of my life. I knew at the age of 8 I would be in the military in some sort of form. With that being said, I have very strong views when it comes to the security of this country. When a President comes into office and starts his term with an executive order that closes Gitmo, well I have to think he does not have the same views about national security like I do. But to make matters worse, Obama has the balls to go beyond that. To go and hang out with Chavez, to telling N. Korea not to test its missiles or nuclear program or you will be grounded, telling Iran that it can have its nuclear program for power but not weapons, but Obama doesn’t even want to use nuclear power here in this country. Hell with Iran’s election in chaos and the people there want the correct results and here the most powerful nation in the world, the one country that had promoted democracy all over the world, and our President can’t even make a statement to tell Iran to listen to its people and let democracy prosper!! Now he might have reasons for this, but I would have to say the biggest reason is he doesn’t have the intestinal fortitude to man up and do what is right and speak out against is buddy Mahmoud.
I am going to stop here for now, but I promise to pick up from here and continue on. It is time for the people of this country to stand up and take back what is rightfully ours. We need to unite and tell the crooks in Congress they cannot have any more of our money, they do not have an open checkbook to write what that want, nor do they have a credit card with no limit. The best and easy way to fix the problem is to change the face of Congress, and the only way to do that is to fire the asshats there no and elect new people into office which hopefully will actually do the right thing and tell the President NO you can’t have any more and the people or tired if it!!!!

McCain’s first hand story of being a POW and some of my rants

Ok so I found this at Little Green Footballs:

Its a first hand account of John McCain’s time spent as a POW in Vietnam. I have always known he was s POW but I never knew the actual story behind his time. If you are a McCain supporter, or if you aren’t go read this story. I have taken the liberty of clipping some of the text out of the story, due to the fact a lot of what McCain said then is very relevant today. So we will start here and move forward. The italics is what McCain had to say, and my comments will be in green:

As you may know, back in 1954, the North Vietnamese had a big hand in toppling the French Government in Paris because the French voters had no more stomach for the Vietnam war their Government was waging at the time. That was the way the North Vietnamese won in 1954—they didn’t win in Vietnam.

The French agreed to pull out of Indo-China with no questions asked when they signed the agreement. As a result, they got back just one third of their POW’s.

I’m convinced that Hanoi hoped to win in our case by undermining morale among the people at home in America. They had to marshal world opinion on their side. I remember in 1968 or ’69 [North Vietnam Premier] Pham Van Dong’s speech to the National Assembly, because we were blasted with these things on the loud-speakers. The title of his address was, “The Whole World Supports Us,” not, “We Have Defeated the U. S. Aggressors,” or anything like that.

Now granted there aren’t a large amount of missing or POW troops in Iraq or Afgan, in fact I believe the only missing Solider Staff Sgt. Keith M. “Matt” Maupin has been found . Now I could be wrong on that statement, but lets move forward. If you read McCain’s words from 1973 you will see that the French “lost” the war because the French people got tired of the war. Now this was most likely brought on by anti-war protesters all of the country. Being as that was in 1954, and here we are in 2008 and the same thing is going on here. Anti-war groups are popping up everywhere spreading lies about the war and what is going on over there.

All through this period, the “gooks” were bombarding us with antiwar quotes from people in high places back in Washington. This was the most effective propaganda they had to use against us—speeches and statements by men who were generally respected in the United States. They used Senator Fulbright a great deal, and Senator Brooke. Ted Kennedy was quoted again and again, as was Averell Harriman. Clark Clifford was another favorite, right after he had been Secretary of Defense under President Johnson.

I find it amazing that in the 60’s during the Vietnam war, Senators were speaking out against it like it would not hurt those serving overseas. When the reality was that there words were actually doing the opposite, it was hurting those that were in the POW camps. And the fact that you have Ted Kennedy back then running his mouth against that war and here he is 40 years later doing again. (see my story about term limits, this is a prime example of why we need them!!). The soldiers in Iraq are hearing the same thing today, on a daily basis from the main stream media, from Senators and Congressmen, and even from a Presidential candidate that won’t even go to Iraq to visit the troops and see that the surge is working!!

The only reason why the North Vietnamese began negotiating in October, 1972, was because they could read the polls as well as you and I can, and they knew that Nixon was going to have an overwhelming victory in his re-election bid. So they wanted to negotiate a cease-fire before the elections.

Granted we are not fighting an enemy like the NVA, but the terrorists pay close attention to polls and to stories coming out of the U.S about the was in Iraq. And when they see and hear stories about the surge isn’t working, and there is a candidate that wants to pull the troops out as soon as he gets into office, this makes their will stronger to keep fighting. The AQI want nothing more then for Obama to win in November. With his win they will be able to wait for the troops to be pulled out and sit back and claim defeat against the strongest military in the world. This would not only be a blow to those serving in uniform but it would be a blow to the United States all over the world.

I admire President Nixon’s courage. There may be criticism of him in certain areas—Watergate, for example. But he had to take the most unpopular decisions that I could imagine—the mining, the blockade, the bombing. I know it was very, very difficult for him to do that, but that was the thing that ended the war. I think the reason he understood this is that he has a long background in dealing with these people. He knows how to use the carrot and the stick. Obviously, his trip to China and the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty with Russia were based on the fact that we’re stronger than the Communists, so they were willing to negotiate. Force is what they understand. And that’s why it is difficult for me to understand now, when everybody knows that the bombing finally got a cease-fire agreement, why people are still criticizing his foreign policy—for example, the bombing in Cambodia.


The fact in 1969 Nixon was willing to stand up against the left, to stand up against the anti-war folks, and to see that the war in Vietnam would end the way it should have ended, is an inspiration that the next President needs to have. The fact that McCain in 1973 saw that what Nixon did help with the end of that war, leads me to believe he knows what is best for the course of actions in Iraq. The fact that the left has a candidate that doesn’t understand the military, doesn’t understand that history has a way or repeating itself if not learned, has way to many “friends” that are against this country scares the crap out of me!!

At this particular juncture, after Tet in 1968, they thought they had the war won. They had gotten General Westmoreland [commander of U.S. forces in South Vietnam] fired. They were convinced that they had wrecked Johnson’s chances for re-election. And they thought that they had the majority of the American people on their side. That’s why these guys were speaking very freely as to what their ambitions were. They were speaking prematurely, because they just misjudged the caliber of President Nixon.

Imagine if you will, AQI had not been almost totally destroyed with the surge last year. With that victory and the fact that there was an election happening the following year, and the main Anti-war candidate looked like a shoe in for the President would AQI not be doing the same thing? They would be all over the internet and the main stream media telling each and every one of us that they were winning that the great United States has been defeated, and now that we control Iraq it is time to move towards destroying Israel!!!!

I have heard there was one B-52 pilot who refused to fly the missions during the Christmas bombing. You always run into that kind. When the going gets tough, they find out their conscience is bothering them. I want to say this to anybody in the military: If you don’t know what your country is doing, find out. And if you find you don’t like what your country is doing, get out before the chips are down.

Now a lot of you out there on the left have had your panties all in a bunch about the war, and the fact there is a group IAVW that has certain people in that would rather desert their posts and not follow the commands they took an oath to follow scare the living shit out of me. The fact that McCain who was beaten on almost a daily basis had the courage to stand up for what was right, the courage to realize that he made the choice to fight (granted a lot of folks during Vietnam were drafted, McCain wasn’t nor are anybody that has served or is serving in the military now) . For those soldiers that say the war is wrong, that they “saw” war crimes, or heard about war crimes, or that they aren’t going to go back to Iraq,well here is my question to you: Why the fuck did you join the military? I mean did you think you were going to boy scout camp an get to march around with guns and sing camp fire songs?? I mean give me a break, I joined in 1997, there wasn’t a threat of war then, but I knew that when I signed my name, raised my hand and took the oath that there could be a war at anytime. The world changes to fast for there not to be. Hell there was a war 6 years prior to me enlisting!! So any of you morons at IVAW think that you have ground to stand on, have another thing coming for you. Because if you “saw” these crimes, or you took part in them you time is coming. If you didn’t report them you time is coming. If you are making false accusations to members of congress your time is coming. But what am I kidding non of you are brave enough to stand up, take the stand in a court room or Senate committee room, raise your right hand and take an oath to tell the truth and nothing but the truth!!

Remember, a handful of turncoats after the Korean War made a great majority of Americans think that most of the POW’s in conflict were traitors.

This last passage goes to all of the anti-war troops out there spreading false stories, telling lies about things that supposedly happened! Because of you, because of groups like IVAW you are making those of us that are proud of our service, that went and fought for their country with honor and same gave their lives to insure that the freedoms of this country would live on forever. you are making all of us look like a bunch of renegades, blood thirsty, and willing to do whatever we want as long as we got home. Whenever you decide to speak and if I am around I will make sure to bring my Bull Shit Card to throw out! If you want to make a difference then do it under oath, bring evidence to the table, give names and locations, and dates the things you speak about happened. Until then crawl back under the rocks you came out from, enjoy the college education your country can and will provide for you, and let it go. So you had a rough year in Iraq or you had to do more then one tour, suck it up. The military isn’t a fucking cake walk, and neither is war!!!

Congressional & Senatorial TERM LIMITS!

Ok first I have to give credit to 2 different blogs for bringing this light bulb to my mind:

1. Ace of Spades HQ
2. Commentary Magazine Blog

Ok after reading about Pelosi giving credit to Iran with “helping” the surge work, my brain almost exploded and I almost got fired for yelling you “traitor bitch!!”. After calming down I read a that someone left on the commentary magazine blog website. It clearly stated:

  1. David B. Says:
    May 29th, 2008 at 3:01 PM

    This is the perfect example of why this country needs Congressional & Senatorial TERM LIMITS!
    Enough is enough. Why hasn’t all the investigating commitees of Pelosi’s congress looked into her meddeling in world affairs?

Now I have brought this up with a few friends and even my wife, but I have never spoke about it out loud. Well now it is time to. How do we as Americans think that by electing the same people into office over and over and over again will change anything? I mean its like Congress is a permanent Groundhog Day.

I know there are a few in Congress that have done a wonderful job, but i still think that to be able to have a change and make some serious effects to this country, it is time that the government get back to being “by the people for the people”. Instead we have by the people until I die or get tired of being in Congress,or run for President and win/lose! Now i know that Senators do 6year terms and Congress does 2 years. But the President can only do 2, 4 year terms. Does anyone else see an issue with this?

In a perfect world, or at least one that can run efficiently, Senators should do a 4 year term and be limited to 2 to 4 max, set their elections on opposite years of the President. In other words, 2008 we elect the President, 2009 we elect new Senators. Now you can break that down to 50 one year and 50 the next, or all 100 at the same time.Either way after 8 to 16 years max you will have new Senators in office that can bring change to the system. My opinion they should be 2, 4 year terms like the President, and on the same years as the President. That way if a Senator decides to run for President and wins or loses their seat is given up for someone else, and in 4 years if they have another term they can win then they can run again.

As far as the House goes, it should be similar to the Senate, but with different amount of years and terms. Being as now they have an election every 2 years, lets change that to every 3. The term limits would be 4, meaning an even 12 years in the House. These elections can be broken up easily. The first batch would be the same year as a Presidential election, the next batch would be the next year when the Senators are running for office. So to follow the example above, in 2008 50% of the house would run for election, and 2009 the other 50% would run. Then in 2011 the first 50% would run again if they haven’t hit the term limit, then in 2012 the other 50% along with the Presidential and Senate races.

But the biggest thing that pisses me off is how Pelosi can go around and thank Iran for helping out with the surge and saying that because Iran decided to tell the insurgents not to fight, is why the surge worked. Saying shit like that, or going to Syria and meeting with their President after the President of the United States, your bass, tells you not to, should be grounds for Treason charges. Pelosi and the code pinkers, and any other left wing nut case that decides to help the United States enemy’s or the friends of our enemy’s then they should be charged with treason, tried and if found guilty be hung on the White House lawn, and televised around the world on Pay per view or HBO. Sorry for the rant, but there have been to many men and women who have died for this country over the last 200 plus years to give us the freedoms we all love to have a fucking idiot like Pelosi to say that Iran should be thanked, or to have her hanging out with the president of Syria. Not only is it a slap in the face to those men and women who died, currently serving,or have served, but it should be a slap in the face to every American. How can we expect to “change” the government if our hands are tied? Someone please tell me how??

Not I am not 100% sure but I believe that serving one’s country in the Senate or House isn’t something that was suppose to be a career, but something one does to give back to our country, and when that time is up, they go back home to whatever it is they were doing and go about their lives. If it was meant to be a lifelong venture they would not have put term limits on the President. before the 22nd Amendment in the Constitution, all of the President’s that came after George Washington only served 2 terms out of respect for Washington. Washington did not want to serve more then 2 terms because he was satisfied with the job he did and did not want to serve anymore terms. Because he was such a great man and leader every other President followed suit until FDR was elected to 4 terms in the 30’s and 40’s, and 2 years after his death did the 22nd pass Congress and ratifies in 1951. 6 years after FDR’s death. So why can’t Congress fall into this as well??

If we are going to change the way the country is lead and how the government is ran we need to get rid of all the shit that is in Congress and start new every 4 years. Then maybe then we might actually see some sort of change for once

Barrack and Iraq

Ok I have to ask a stupid question to the left: How in your right mind can you actually back a guy that wants to talk to terrorists, talk to a nation that wants to wipe another nation off the map, and wants to deal with an idiot from South America that had the balls to stand up in front of the U.N and say that Bush was the devil, yet he is to big of a puss to go to Iraq and speak with the troops that are fighting to insure he can be such a puss? Please explain that to me?? I mean lets get real here, how can someone even think about being the President of the United States, and not even go to Iraq and talk with the troops? I mean is he afraid that when he gets there that all of the bullshit he has been spewing about the surge not working and that the Iraqi’s don’t want us there, and that the country is falling apart are not going to be true? Oh wait, thats it, he does realize he is wrong and is afraid to admit to it, oh what am I thinking about he is a Left wing, liberal, he can’t admit he is wrong its against everything he stands for.

For all of you liberal, left wing asshats,take this to heart before you have any words to say to me: If you really think that Barrack will be able to pull all of the troops out of Iraq in the first year he is in office then you must really want more troops to die. The fact that the enemy will wait until we all move south to Kuwait to leave and then attack us on the way. Then they will go from city to city killing anyone and everyone that helped us while we were there. Then what is to stop Iran from coming south and taking over? Then now you have a country that is that much closer to wiping Israel off of the map!! Its common sense people use it already!!!! then when all this happens what is ole Barrack going to do? Talk to his buddy Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and tell him he is being bad.Maybe smack his nose like some sort of fucking dog that shit on the carpet? No barrack is going to have to send troops back and this time it will take more then what we have there now. And how does one get more troops?Anyone? Anyone?? Its called a draft!!

So now we have a draft, were are all of you left wingers that haven’t joined the military prior to this going to go to?? Are you all going to run off to Mexico or France? Try to get deferments like Clinton? Ask yourself these questions when you hear Barrack speak, or should I say spew his bullshit. I mean really at what point will he come out and admit that he has said that he will meet with these mad men with no terms and is to big of a pussy to go to Iraq??? Well I for one am not going to hold my breath, for as I may die if I do so, and well that would be just as dumb as voting for Barrack!!

Oh and another thought for you. Over the last 8 years all of you have whined and cried about how Bush stole the election, he didn’t win,blah, blah blah!! What happens this time if Barrack losses, whether its but a slim margin or large margin?? Will the race card be played?? Will the election have been stolen from the great and all powerful wizard that is Barrack?? The race card you plan on using if thats the case has an expiration date on it, and if you look closely it expired the day O.J. was found not guilty!! Just food for thought. Please discuss amongst yourselves and let me know what you plan on doing if that happens. Because another 4 years of having to hear how the election was stolen will get old real fast. Hell look at what you are doing in your own party, Can’t even make a decision on who will be the nom. Hell yo are about to tell 2 states that there votes do not count and they are not part of the process, thats a real good way to win in Nov you big twits!

“(Obama) really has no experience or knowledge or judgment about the issue of Iraq and he has wanted to surrender for a long time.” — John McCain

WTF!@!!

Well I really need to do a post about Vets on the Hill, but I am to pissed off right now. There are a couple of things that have sent me over the edge:

1.Are people really that stupid that when there here a true American hero say that his kids will grow up to know heroes like McCain and not Tiger woods that he was a. being racist, and b. he was talking about Obama?? Come on people get a fucking life!! Not everything people say deal with race, fucking read a book, get an education and grow the fuck up!

2. My piss ass company are about to lay some more people off, we all know it, but they are to chickshit to tell us it is coming. it would be nice to get prepared and get my shit together just in case. Isn’t it nice how your employer expects a 2 week notice when you quit, but they can let you go with out warning?? Am I the only one that sees the problem with this???
