Why the fall of Iraq bothers me

Always remember that Iraq turned out the way that it did because Obama wanted to make the far left happy. History, if our nation survives, must remember that.

Life After War

This is a hard post to write. Not because the subject matter is painful, (I’ll stare into the darkest pain with you), but because it is so personal to my daily life. Someone asked me why I let the events in Iraq bother me.

I’ll tell you why.

Every day I interact with guys who lost men they loved dearly, who struggle every single day with memories, horrific flashbacks, anxiety, guilt, brokenness, anger. Men who are afraid to sleep because of the terror that waits to ensnare them when they let their guard down. Men who carry a weight on their hearts that comes from being forced to kill parts of themselves in order to do what combat demanded they do. Men who stared death in the face day after day, deployment after deployment, who made decisions that can’t be undone. Men who died inside themselves to keep their brothers…

TERRORISM STATISTICS: Islam versus Christianity

Profiles with Christian and Islamic symbols

“I have seen so many comments from liberals in denial regarding the ISIS terrorist attack in California, so this post is going to be my very best attempt at untangling this yarn ball of lies and bullsh*t as best I can.

First, the majority of them have immediately brought up Robert Dear, the guy who shot three people in Planned Parenthood, to make a point that Christian terrorists are just as bad and Muslim terrorists are unfairly scrutinized. When’s the last time you heard of a terrorist attack targeting abortion clinics? I looked it up. Since 1990, there have been 7 fatal attacks on abortion clinics or abortion doctors, resulting in 11 fatalities. ELEVEN. Just to clarify, that’s less in 25 years than Syed Farook and Tashfeed Malik killed in the span of 5 minutes.

Second, bringing up other white, male mass shooters in the United States to somehow prove…

Refugees and the Continuing Meltdown of the Left

What we are witnessing here is the crack up of the left and the Middle East is helping.

“Mocking it is the worst thing we could do. It validates all the worst stereotypes about liberals that we put political correctness ahead of national security. It doesn’t matter if that’s right or wrong. Ordinary people see the refugees as a common sense thing to be concerned about. We shouldn’t respond by essentially calling them idiots. That way lies electoral disaster.”  (Source: Liberals Should Knock Off the Mockery Over Calls to Limit Syrian Refugees | Mother Jones)

Combine what is going on at Mizzou, the Houston transgendered restrooms, Caitlyn Jenner being a hero and Chris Kyle being a villain, even liberals see that Americans are finally starting to realize the far breadth of the left’s insanity.  One of the keys to the rise of the left was that they always focused themselves in the ‘cool kids’ crowd.  People with no particular interest in politics wants to stand with those they admire and thus the left has such a strong hold on the young and experienceless.  With the way they are going off the rocker, people don’t wish to be associated with this nuttery much less care what those people think about them.  Every decision they make or cause they advocate is adverse to the strength and stability of the nation and, as with this refugee crisis, it is clear for all fair minded individuals to see.  Their grip on the culture is finally slipping.

No one watches their news, no one watches their movies, no one reads their books.  People seek the arts as an escape, not to be lectured about heteronormative cis gendered privilege.  People can recognize their news propaganda the instant it is uttered.  Further, the majority is starting to wake up and realize that they do have a say in the future of their country.  Liberal malfeasance has led to a Republican party stronger than ever in its history.  The people have had enough of the left’s chiding righteousness and their influence is on the decline. We have a good chance for cultural correction in this next electoral cycle. We must choose wisely as our next president will either be our  Marcus Aurelius or our Nero.

Equal pay for equal risks

Anvil IconIn 1995, as an active duty sailor, we were somewhere in the Pacific, performing stealth operational exercises. 

LTJG Saari was piloting her chopper…..when she began electronically transmitting her exact location, and giving away ours. 

Had this not been an exercise, every life aboard that ship would have had a target front and center on our melons. Her irresponsibility could have led to the mortality of all on board. Do you know what she was paid? She was paid exactly to the penny what every other O-2 in the United States Navy was paid. Not a penny less. She constantly miscalculated, misjudged, and was driven by her need to somehow let her ovaries take the reins. She was constantly shoving her uterus in people’s faces. Yet she received equal pay for her potentially catastrophic decisions. 

A common mantra amongst feminists is “Equal pay for equal work”. No. Incorrect. “Equal pay for equal risks”. This is more than accurate to be corrective. 

These irritating feminists don’t WANT to make the hard decisions. The feminists don’t WANT to do the dirty work. These vermin enjoy the comfort of the air conditioning in their Oil Company sponsored offices just fine except they will picket and protest for equal pay while the roughnecks sweat, break and bleed in the oil fields all day. 

Yet “Equal pay for equal work!!”

What does that even mean? Because the last time that I checked, a female and male Sargent at a Maximum security prison, receive the same salary. A male and a female ER Nurse receive the same hourly wage. A male and female nuclear physicist receive the same compensation for their intellectual fortitude. An O-2 is paid just like every other O-2 in the military. Just as every E-1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8. So what does this phrase even mean??

Here is my problem with feminism: it’s counter productive. It’s embarrassing. It’s shameful. Those who deserve equal pay, are taking equal risks. They are deserving of equal pay. They receive their equal pay. Those who just want to shove their ovaries and uteruses down the throats of men while trying to get something they have not earned, are shameful. 

I’m about to share something with you that negates the feminist argument. “Equal pay for equal work?”. I take much more risk than my male counterpart. I am financially rewarded heads and shoulders above my male counterpart. I have made not a single man dine on one of my ovaries or suffocate on my uterus to get this type of compensation. I take more risk. I get more money. This is actually the way that the economy has been working for quite some time but don’t tell the feminists I let you in on this secret. They will call for my uterus to be burned at the stake.

30-Sep-14
You know.. I’m in here as the son of a cold warrior. My dad was an 18E and served from 1960-81 with three tours in Vietnam. I’ve been in the Army for nearly 10 years with a 15 month tour and a 12 month tour in Iraq.  I watch this video and think on the twilight of the greatest generation. We all remember as this time came upon the WWI generation, with the flurry of news stories and renewed public interest as the last of them slipped into history. The almost cold cycle seems to repeat itself with the WWII generation. This day will come for veterans of the Korean War, Vietnam, and so on. One day it will be my generation’s time to stand in the twilight. This thought, for unknown reasons, rips my heart out. Not for the vets of my war, but for all veterans.

So many humans live their lives in quiet humble mediocrity whereas those who have served and heeded their nation’s call, be it by draft or enlistment, have ‘grabbed history’s torch’ and lived life in a blinding brilliance, even if only for a little while. To ponder such bold examples of humanity quietly passing into the night fills my heart with a formless agony. As each generation leaves us, so much is lost. Modern society no longer values these things much to our own tragedy. I am reminded of Pvt. Harry Patch. Harry Patch, aka the last Fighting Tommy, at the time of his death, aged 111 years, 1 month, 1 week and 1 day, was the last surviving infantryman of the British Empire’s Army from The Great War. He reflected on the absurdity that in a war where millions came to fight and millions came to die that he would be the last. In one of the final interviews he gave before his passing he remarked on how those we leave behind, lost in war, remain forever young while those who remain carry own and wilt with time’s touch. He shared four lines from a poem called For the Fallen:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

I fear the pain in my heart and yearning for the brothers I’ve lost in Iraq and Afghanistan has only grown worse as the years separating us have increased. Still though, we shall remember. Perhaps the source of my agony when pondering a generation of veteran’s twilight is, “Who will remember them when we are gone?

On Frank Rich and the New York Times

I just read http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/22/opinion/22rich.html?_r=2&ref=frankrich

Please…….allow me to retort!

Wow, excellent example of how little frank rich knows what ‘hearts and minds’ or the war in Afghanistan is about. Its funny to me how the folks who will call him General Betray-us when it suites them will suddenly be ‘oh poor and venerable General Petraeus.. Its disgusting.. Its not about ‘America’ winning the hearts and minds.. its about the military winning hearts and minds and work with us to rebuild their country. Lucky for us, people of the middle east can differentiate between the service member and  the government. They know service members are far less likely to stab them in the back when its politically expedient.

We want to win hearts and minds to bring them to the table to get the Taliban/bad guys apprehended preferably/killed if necessary so we can get essential services and "RULE OF LAW’ running. That is impossible w/o local support. You lay a sewer, AQA/TB blows it up. pointless exercise. You get the AQA/TB, sewer goes in and lasts long enough to see the benefits of it…. ‘hey.. these Americans may be on to something!’ Put in power and show them running water, the Taliban start looking alot less groovy. I’ve seen it work during the surge. It can work in Afghanistan. This article was nothing more than a smear towards fox news because the MSM is loosing its audience and fox is gaining by leaps and bounds. As for the ‘hawks’ that invested in the surge.. I don’t recall anyone urging the surge except the military.. Everyone else was just bitching for the president to ‘make a decision’. Also, the IMAM wanting to build this mosque also said on 60 minutes no less, that 9/11 was America’s fault and that we were an accessory to the crime. Now I believe the guy has the right to build the mosque.. I’m just pointing this out to pick apart the article.. As for pointing out the Saudi connection with News Corp.. Fox actually reported this story when it happened.. They didn’t try to hide it.. And the House of Saud is very Islamic conservative.. The Wahabis put them in power.. If they had any actual sway over News Corp, there would be zero coverage of anything anti Muslim.

When you talk about if McCain being in office that FN would have left the issue alone, your dead wrong. I think John McCain would have had the sense to stay away from the issue though. I can’t speak for the American people on Obama’s religions preference. Honestly I think he is atheist.

 

This article is a hatchet job against conservatives. This whole argument has gotten twisted. I feel the issue isn’t religious tolerance, its about decency. There isn’t a real modern way to express a comparison about how this makes some of us feel. I can’t recall any Christian on Muslim terrorism recently. I’m not saying it hasn’t happened. The crusades were defiantly something that can never be forgotten. I personally feel that the folks that want to build it have every right to build it and that there shouldn’t be any back door maneuvering to prevent it. They should, however, have the decency to not build it. ‘Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should’ is something every citizen in a free democracy should have yelling at the back of their head.
