If you tripped over the internet and somehow found yourself here. It's not worth reading.

I really miss my weed wacker. Walking around and killing with a purpose.

I'd offer to go away for another week or two so the shy little wood nymphs and water dryads could come back and shyly express their measureless contempt for everyman who disagrees with them but after mature reflection; fuckem.

Our host is the worst of you.

Skippy, you live in the place (actually an oasis of civilization) as my mom described it. Your hatred knows no bounds and shows no reasons, as you've said before.

I'd ask you to consider yourself as a 6 year old black girl who's mom sent her to school so that for a year she had to be escorted by 4 US Marshals simply because the omnidirectional hatred of whites who hated blacks required some level of protection. Those white? They hated for no reason.

You and your ilk who hate Coulter and hate Bush and hate Rove and Hate all conservatives to the point that even massive protection is not enough today to keep them safe from the harm that YOUR HATERS launch against them suck. Does that make you all feel like it's OK because you're just hating and it's OK since the one's you hate are beyond the protection of the law?

Have you ever asked yourself how your undifferentiated and mindless hate distinguishes you from the Klan?

Wasn't that the case when haters like you and yourselves hated that little 6 year old black girl? You know, at the Tea Party 2 days ago.


This weekend I'll figure out how to post pictures of pilots and then you'll be amazed!


Finished with Gladiator tonight. Ends with a 'good' man dying and envisioning 'home'. I'm not sure home meant all that much to the 99.8% of the time whose home was nothing but a dismal hovel. There must be something better.

Enter the damned Catholic Church. Suffer in this world for Glory in the next. Render unto the Church that you may hope to enter heaven. Oh, and then let us bring 1100 years of total war, heresy, the inquisition, the crusades, the Albigensian heresy, the 100 years war, the 30 years war. I could go on.

It's OK to hate now if you're afraid of what might come...........

I'm just waiting for one of those haters to propose that is the reason why they hate either Palin or the Tea Party. It's OK to hate them for what might come but it was not OK back then to hate that 5 year old girl for what may come? Liberal/Progressives have trouble making a convincing argument with a parking meter in Berkeley....which may explain why most of the parking meters have been decapitated. One can see the LIB/PROG argument right there: "Argue with me now Bitch!!"


Have you ever noticed how the big insane HATERS of today resemble the big insane HATERS of yesteryear? You look now at the hatred spewed by the left and the vile and baseless accusations they toss out against the Tea Party and Sarah Palin and you just have to compare them to the white racists who were so proud to align themselves at HATING the little girl that integrated William Frantz School and the teenagers that integrated Little Rock High. Their little white faces twisted in rage at a girl that never hurt them.

I was just reading the 27th annual bimonthly Field Artillery Journal. My grandad was mentioned somewhere in there in the 1937 Journal. There was FA everywhere, even Marfa.

back to Ia Drang.

Lex, if you got this twice, my apologies. It failed to show up as 'sent' when I went back tonight.

I'll be honest. My attitude did change over the years.

This is one reason. (first picture)

My heart is another. She's 6, lives with her mom in Texas. (second picture) pilot you'll note.

We were discussing life and death on your place.

There is wrong just as there is right.

My girl is probably like yours. Smart as a whip. I think that other little girl would have turned out smart too. Collateral damage. No different from our own. I think it is wrong to kill innocents and I don't think it is wrong to say so. I bcc'd Chaplain Harvey on this one. I spent a long time in the chapel after my last hospital appointment this week. I think you should put the post back up. Yes, I was the complete asshole and moron who showed his ass. How often though do we as a society delve into life and death?

I remember reading the bio of a girl we killed when we targeted Yugoslavian TV a long time ago. Sounded like a really nice girl. Wrong place, wrong time. Just went to work one night when we were shooting missiles at TV transmitters.

Remember Firefly? "A better world."

Life and death doesn't necessarily bring out the best in people. What bugs me? There are folks we know that think it's OK to kill the little kids and the unarmed innocent types.

I'm gladder than you know that I'm not among them.



Is there a special credit gained by joining the League of civilized states? Did that credit include Japan and Germany?

Just asking.
Total genocide and Rape of Nanking notwhistanding. You ever hear tell of the Belgian Congo? France and Haiti? The guys that invented the whole Concentration Camp? My first wardroom had a plaque from Ethiopia with the call to arms of Haile Selassie. I wish that I could recall it enough to quote his call to arms to repel the Italians.

Today we shall light such a fire, by God's grace as I trust shall never be put out.

History has a way of preserving the flaws. League of Civilized Countries? The only ones that spring immediately to mind are Bhutan and Nepal and Monte Carlo and San Marino and Lichtenstein.

So a man wondered why did I ask him and his lovely wife to dinner today. It was months ago that we sat down together. The answer was most profound.
My sister asked me to help her editor track down the shits who steal her books online. 27,000 downloads of her last book. You'd think I alone invented the internet.
My brother wonders why I don't take my sisters advice and see a doctor. I did see one and I'm afraid the answer is most profound.

It was one of those days. It was far and away the shittiest day since I didn't run out of fuel on the way back from San Francisco and yeah to know that feeling you had to be one of the 3 of us.

The ultrasound tech was super cute though so even a shitty day has it's upside.

"I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."
-- Thomas Jefferson

Me too.


Copied from Maggie's Farm who copied it from Samiz.

I am not going to talk about religious beliefs but about matters so obvious that it has gone out of style to mention them. I believe in my neighbours. I know their faults, and I know that their virtues far outweigh their faults. "Take Father Michael down our road a piece. I'm not of his creed, but I know that goodness and charity and loving kindness shine in his daily actions. I believe in Father Mike. If I'm in trouble, I'll go to him. My next-door neighbour is a veterinary doctor. Doc will get out of bed after a hard day to help a stray cat. No fee - no prospect of a fee - I believe in Doc. I believe in my townspeople. You can know on any door in our town saying, 'I'm hungry,' and you will be fed. Our town is no exception. I've found the same ready charity everywhere. But for the one who says, 'To heck with you - I got mine,' there are a hundred, a thousand who will say, "Sure, pal, sit down." I know that despite all warnings against hitch-hikers I can step up to the highway, thumb for a ride and in a few minutes a car or a truck will stop and someone will say, 'Climb in Mac - how far you going?'

I believe in my fellow citizens. Our headlines are splashed with crime yet for every criminal there are 10,000 honest, decent, kindly men. If it were not so, no child would live to grow up. Business could not go on from day to day. Decency is not news. It is buried in the obituaries, but is a force stronger than crime. I believe in the patient gallantry of nurses and the tedious sacrifices of teachers. I believe in the unseen and unending fight against desperate odds that goes on quietly in almost every home in the land. I believe in the honest craft of workmen. Take a look around you. There never were enough bosses to check up on all that work. From Independence Hall to the Grand Coulee Dam, these things were built level and square by craftsmen who were honest in their bones. I believe that almost all politicians are honest. . .there are hundreds of politicians, low paid or not paid at all, doing their level best without thanks or glory to make our system work.

If this were not true we would never have gotten past the 13 colonies. I believe in Rodger Young. You and I are free today because of endless unnamed heroes from Valley Forge to the Yalu River. I believe in - I am proud to belong to - the United States. Despite shortcomings from lynchings to bad faith in high places, our nation has had the most decent and kindly internal practices and foreign policies to be found anywhere in history.

And finally, I believe in my whole race. Yellow, white, black, red, brown. In the honesty, courage, intelligence, durability, and goodness of the overwhelming majority of my brothers and sisters everywhere on this planet. I am proud to be a human being. I believe that we have come this far by the skin of our teeth. That we always make it just by the skin of our teeth, but that we will always make it. Survive. Endure. I believe that this hairless embryo with the aching, oversize brain case and the opposable thumb, this animal barely up from the apes will endure. Will endure longer than his home planet - will spread out to the stars and beyond, carrying with him his honesty and his insatiable curiosity, his unlimited courage and his noble essential decency. This I believe with all my heart.

R. A. Heinlein.

Modern liberal progressives unable to argue their way out of a wet paper bag content themselves by spewing vile obscenities and making racist attacks in lieu of well reasoned arguments.

Most amazing thing this afternoon. I'm having a very quiet private chat with a new acquaintance in the library here in Mission Hills and we're talking about politics and war and the decline of civilization and this hideous fat cow behind us is muttering "oh bull shit" louder and louder and saying we're full of shit and getting louder and louder so I called her on it at which point she called us both assholes very loudly and started cursing us. I pointed out to my conversation partner that this was pretty typical liberal behavior and she went nuts and started calling us other names. My partner turned and asked if she could spell any of those words and we then ignored her and went back to our conversation about property in Las Vegas and Texas and she started whistling, loudly, in a library. Liberals....
