Mr. T "Get Some Nuts" Commercial

I do know know where I was when the controversy about this comemrcial rose it's ugly head.

While flipping channels last night, I came across Bill O'Rellly doing a retrospect show on 2008. He played the commercial and interviewed Mr. T.

I see nothing wrong with the commercial. It was funny and made we want to go get a Snickers bar. I can't eat Snickers bars because of my diabetes, but it did it's job; made me want a Snickers bar. Absolutely nothing in the commercials alludes anything about gays.

Watch and enjoy

"Get some nuts." - Mr. T



A Pefect Response for Students Who Think They Don't Need An Education

This is a clip from the movie Caddyshack. I have always loved the line spoken by Judge Elihu Smails (played by Ted Knight) at the end of this particular clip. I would love to say it to any of my students who think they came make it in life without an education.

I will post the video first and my daily post quote below it.



Danny Noonan: I planned to go to law school after I graduated but uh, it looks like my folks won't have enough money to put me through college.

Judge Elihu Smails: Well, the world needs ditch diggers too.

Lacey Underall: Nice try.

Democrats = Zombies

While I was surfing the web looking for ideas for a post, I came across this video clip on YouTube.

It is amazing what you can find on the Internet from a movie that was made 68 years ago that is applicable to today's issues.

I will post the quote below the video.




Geoff (as played by Richard Carlson): "When a person dies and is buried, it seems there's certain voodoo priests who have the power to bring him back to life."
Mary (as played by Paulette Goddard): "How horrible."
Geoff (as played by Richard Carlson): : "It's worse than horrible because a zombie has no will of his own. You see them sometimes, walking around with dead eyes, following orders, not knowing what they do, not caring."
Larry (as played by Bob Hope): "You mean like democrats?"

Smokey and the Bandit: Then and Now

As many of my readers know, I am a fan of old movies. I was sitting up the past Sunday night/Monday morning watching television and came across "Smokey and the Bandit" on the SLUETH channel. My Lovely Bride and I always watch it; partially to enjoy it again and also to look for things we had not noticed previously.

After some searching in the Internet, I found a web site that shows many of the scenes as they appeared in the movies and the same locations now.

Some have changed and some have not, but it is interesting to see how places change and how they remain the same.

Click here for the web site.

Enjoy the web site. It is a great trip back to 1977.

Houston Protesters Rally for Gaza

Today in the Houston Chronicle was an
article entitled "Hundreds rally near Galleria against Gaza attacks" with the subtitle "Another protest is set for Monday at Israeli Consulate."

There were people posting in the comments section about the rally, attacks and other related issues.

The posts were split about 50-50 between pro-Israel and pro-Hamas supporters.

One poster, bigTEXAS, posted the comment: "Why is the media constantly making Israel look like the bad guy?"

On their forum, I post as "texasquestion". I use that moniker as I have been censored under four previous user names. I attempt to not get very radical as the Chronicle Police tend to censor and possibly locks one's account if one get too controversial.

Here is my post:



Because they are in bed with the liberal democrats that view Israel as a tool of the right. By making Israel out to be the bad guys, they gain support for the libs and dems and put forth the impression that they support the downtrodden masses of the world. Expect this to continue to a greater scale now the The Boy Wonder, Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro) becomes the temporary resident of The White House.


I am planning on being in Houston on Monday (today) for a short get-a-way. I am thinking about going by the protest and seeing if I can get anything for a future post.

U.S. Marine Corps Song: Marine Hymn



The Marines' Hymn is the official hymn of the United States Marine Corps. It is the oldest official song in the U.S. Armed Forces.

The song has an obscure origin; the words date from the 19th century, but no one knows the author. The music is from the Gendarmes' Duet from the opera Geneviève de Brabant by Jacques Offenbach, which had its debut in Paris in 1859.

The Marine Corps secured a copyright on the song on August 19, 1919, but it is now in the public domain.

The initial verse is "From the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli". The Montezuma phrase refers to the Battle of Chapultepec, which took place during the Mexican-American War. The Tripoli phrase refers to actions during the First Barbary War and the Battle of Derne.

The "Marines' Hymn" is typically sung at the position of "attention" as a gesture of respect.

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev'ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job--
The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

US Coast Guard Song: Semper Paratus



This is the best video I could find of the United States Coast Guard song, with lyrics. I will try to find out some information about the song and post it at a later date. I also know their is a longer version of the song, but I have not been able to find one with the complete lyrics being sung.

So here's the Coast Guard battle song,
We fight on land or sea.
Through howling gale and shot and shell,
To win our victory.
"Semper Paratus" is our guide,
Our pledge, our motto too.
We're "Always Ready" do or die!
Aye! Coast Guard we are for you!

US Army Song: "As the Army Goes Rolling Along"



Here is the information I found ont he United States Army song. It is also from Wikipedia, but I think it is pretty accurate.

The song is based on the "Caisson Song" written by field artillery First Lieutenant (later Brigadier General) Edmund L. Gruber, Lieutenant William Bryden, and Lieutenant (later Major General) Robert Danford while stationed at Fort Stotsenburg in the Philippines in March 1908.

The tune quickly became popular in field artillery units. In 1917 the Secretary of the Navy and Army Lieutenant George Friedlander of the 306th Field Artillery asked John Philip Sousa to create a march using the "Caisson Song." Sousa changed the key, harmony, and rhythm and renamed it "U.S. Field Artillery."

The recording sold 750,000 copies. Sousa didn't know who had written the song and had been told that it dated back to the Civil War. Although an Army magazine claims that Souza passed on his royalties to Gruber. Other sources state that Gruber became involved in a prolonged legal battle to recover the rights to music he had written and that had been lifted (unknowingly or not) by Souza and widely sold by sheet music publishers who reaped profits while Gruber received nothing.

The music became so popular that it was also used in radio ads by firms such as the Hoover Vacuum Company. Gruber lost his battle in the courts. They ruled that he had waited too long to complain and that his music was by that time in the public domain. "The Caisson Song" was never designated as the official U.S.Army song likely because the lyrics were too closely identified with the field artillery and not the entire army. The official song retains Gruber's music, but with re-written lyrics.

As the Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard had already adopted official songs, the Army was anxious to find a song of its own. In 1948, the Army conducted a contest to find an official song, but no entry received much popular support. In 1952, Secretary of the Army Frank Pace asked the music industry to submit songs and received over 800 submissions. "The Army's Always There" by Sam Stept won the contest, and an Army band performed it at President Dwight D. Eisenhower's inaugural parade on January 20, 1953. However, many thought that the tune was too similar to "I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts," so the Army decided to keep Gruber's melody from the "Caisson Song" but with new lyrics. A submission of lyrics by Harold W. Arberg, a music advisor to the Adjutant General, was accepted. Secretary of the Army Wilber Marion Brucker dedicated the music on Veterans Day, November 11, 1956. The song is played at the conclusion of most U.S. Army ceremonies, and all soldiers are expected to stand at attention and sing. When more than one service song is played, they are played in the order specified by Army regulations: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard.


First to fight for the right,
And to build the Nation’s might,
And The Army Goes Rolling Along
Proud of all we have done,
Fighting till the battle’s won,
And the Army Goes Rolling Along.
Refrain:

Then it's Hi! Hi! Hey!
The Army's on its way.
Count off the cadence loud and strong*
For where e’er we go,
You will always know
That The Army Goes Rolling Along.

Blagojevich Lawyer Wants Obama Aides Subpoenaed

In today's Houston Chronicle, in a copyrighted story from the Associated Press, brings forth the fact that an attorney for Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has asked the legislative committee considering whether to impeach the governor to subpoena President-elect Barack HUSSEIN Obama's incoming chief of staff and a senior adviser.

All I could think when I read the story was "The Plot Thickens". Of course Blogo wants The Boys Wonder's lackeys to testify. Then he will have power over Obama when said lackeys refuse to testify.

It is easy to claim one innocence when primaries to his defense refuse to help. This thing is getting deeper than a bottomless pit.

Of course Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro) is involved. Whether or not he gets nailed depends on HOW deep they dig. Nothing happens around his guy without his TOTAL knowledge and no action is taken without his concern.

The only thing that may save him is how many "buffers" were between him and the button man.

"The family had lots of buffers." - Michael V. Gazzo playing Frankie Pentangeli in "The Godfather-Part 2"

White Christmas


"White Christmas" is my favorite Christmas movie of all time. My Lovely Bride and I watch it every Christmas. It is one of the traditions we started when we get married 25 years ago.

I never get tired of this movie. It is how I remember Christmas in as a youth while travelling around the world with my father while he was in the Military.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

Houston Chronicle: Private Schools Feeling Budget Pinch

The Houston Chronicle, in thier Sunday online edition, posted an article entitled "Private Schools Feeling Budget Pinch". The article goes into how private schools are losing students due to the economic situation.

The article goes into the pros and cons of public and private schools and to some degree the home-schooling segment of education. It also discussed why many stduents leave public education for the private school or home school option for education.

I have had some evry definate opinion on why public schools are failing and how they are run.

Many public schools cater to the small groups who seem to demand or require individual and special help to succeed. However, that success is measured in a different way at the general student population.

I agree that all students should be provided an education, but when a select few require more educational support than other groups of students, the overall quality of education goes down. By doing this, the overall education quality of the school is watered down.

Private schools and home schooling are not the answer to the problems of education.

Schools have always been a microcosm of society in general and the issues that students, teachers, and staff face in the classrooms are a result of what is happening in the world. Society has become too liberal. Most people are only concerned with what they can get at the moment, without any desire to work towards a goal and feel the satisfaction of achieving it. That is way most public schools are failing.

The students and their parents, whom on the whole, do very little to foster a positive opportunity for the student to succeed need to be instructed and required to contribute to the education of their offspring.

Some many flee to private schools and home schooling. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to do that.

A simple solution would be return to the educational method that everyone over the age of 50 experienced in their youth. After all, we turned out pretty good. Well, at least BETTER than the majority of the students we are graduating from high school today, who cannot meet the rigors and requirements of college, the job market, and life.

"Education would be so much more effective if its purpose were to ensure that by the time they leave school every boy and girl should know how much they don't know, and be imbued with a lifelong desire to know it." - Sir William Haley

US Air Force Song: "Wild Blue Yonder"


Growing up as an Army Brat, I always loved the songs of the military. Whenever we would go to a military function. I always loved the bands and the music they played.

I am going to post some of the songs I loved as a youth and as an adult. How one cannot be or will not be proud of the military and a proud citizen of the United States of American when hearing these song is beyond me.

I have posted some information about the songs below, along with heir lyrics. The information is from Wikipedia. Yes, I know Wikipedia is not always 100% reliable, but I think it was pretty accurate on the description. If you have any corrections or additions, please let me know and I will correct and/or amend the information.

PS: I am posting them in alphabetical order, according to the branch of service.

Originally, the song was known as the 'Army Air Corps Song.' Captain Robert MacArthur Crawford wrote the lyrics and music in 1939. In 1947, the words "U.S. Air Force" in the title and lyrics replaced the original "Army Air Corps". On September 27, 1979, General Lew Allen, Jr., Chief of Staff of the Air Force, adopted it as the official song for the service.

In 1937, Assistant Chief of the Air Corps Brig. Gen. Hap Arnold persuaded the Chief of the Air Corps, Maj. Gen. Oscar Westover, that airmen needed a song reflecting their unique identity, and proposed a song competition with a prize to the winner. However, the Air Corps had no control over its budget, and could not give a prize. Liberty magazine stepped in, offering a purse of $1,000 to the winner.

Around 757 compositions were entered, and evaluated by a volunteer committee chaired by Mildred Yount, the wife of a senior Air Corps officer, and featuring several distinguished musicians. The committee had until July 1939 to make a final choice. However, word eventually spread that the committee found no songs that satisfied them, despite the massive number of entries. Arnold, who took over command of the Air Corps in 1938 after Westover was killed in a plane crash, solicited direct inquiries from contestants, including Irving Berlin, but not even Berlin's creations proved satisfactory. Just before the deadline, Crawford entered his song, which proved to be a unanimous winner.

The song did not catch favor with everyone. At a dinner in September 1939, committee chair Yount played a recording of the song for Charles Lindbergh and asked his opinion of the song. He responded politely to Yount, but years later remarked in a diary, "I think it is mediocre at best. Neither the music nor the words appealed to me." Arnold did not share Lindbergh's opinion; he sought to fund publication of band and ensemble arrangements of the song for nationwide distribution. However, the Air Corps did not have enough money to widely publish the piece, so Crawford arranged a transfer of the song's copyright to New York music publisher Carl Fischer Inc., including a perpetual performance release in favor of the U.S. Air Force.



Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At 'em boys, Give 'er the gun!
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off with one hell of a roar!*
We live in fame or go down in flame.
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!

Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder,
Sent it high into the blue;
Hands of men blasted the world asunder;
How they lived God only knew! (God only knew!)
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
Gave us wings, ever to soar!
With scouts before and bombers galore.
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!


Here's a toast to the host
Of those who love the vastness of the sky,
To a friend we send a message of his brother men who fly.
We drink to those who gave their all of old,
Then down we roar to score the rainbow's pot of gold.
A toast to the host of men we boast, the U.S. Air Force!

Off we go into the wild sky yonder,
Keep the wings level and true;
If you'd live to be a grey-haired wonder
Keep the nose out of the blue!
Flying men, guarding the nation's border,
We'll be there, followed by more!
In echelon we carry on.
Nothing can stop the Air Force!
Nothing can stop the U.S. Air Force!

Toby Keith: "I Love This Bar"

When Texas Truth was young, dumb, and full of testosterone ..I used to frequent places like this. Once I met and married "My Lovely Bride," I stopped going so much, but we have been known to go back once or twice a year, for some "fun."

I know Toby Keith supported Barack HUSSEIN Obama, but I still like his songs.

After all, earlier this month, he declared the democratic party had left him and he was changing his political affiliation to "Independent." Chick here to read the story.

The only thing is I don't like to drink my beer from a mason jar. I like drinking it from ice cold long neck bottles or a frosty mug.

We got winners, we got losers
Chain smokers and boozers
And we got yuppies, we got bikers
We got thirsty hitchhikers
And the girls next door dress up like movie stars

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

We got cowboys, we got truckers
Broken-hearted fools and suckers
And we got hustlers, we got fighters
Early birds and all-nighters
And the veterans talk about their battle scars

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

I love this bar
It's my kind of place
Just walkin' through the front door
Puts a big smile on my face
It ain't too far, come as you are
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

I've seen short skirts, we got high-techs
Blue-collar boys and rednecks
And we got lovers, lots of lookers
And I've even seen dancing girls and hookers
And we like to drink our beer from a mason jar

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar
Yes I do

I like my truck (I like my truck)
I like my girlfriend (I like my girlfriend)
I like to take her out to dinner
I like a movie now and then

But I love this bar
It's my kind of place
Just trollin' around the dance floor
Puts a big smile on my face
No cover charge, come as you are
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

HOUSTON CHRONICLE: Economy cuts immigrants' holiday trips home

In an article in yesterday's Houston Chronicle entitled "Cash Crunch Cuts Short Odysseys" and subtitled "A Worsening U.S. Economy Has Halted Holiday Trips Back Home For Some Immigrants From Latin America" it is alluded to that immigrants (aka criminal aliens) are having a tough time going back to their country of origin for the holidays.

I left a comment on the article and it is posted below. I post on the Houston Chronicle website as "
texasquestion". I use that moniker because I have been banned from the site four previous times under different names.

Here is what I posted:


I must agree with you. Their residence in OUR country is based on committing a crime and by staying here, pass on that criminal culture to their children. They feel they have the right to be criminals. They actually use their downtrodden existence to their benefit by convincing people that they have a right to be here. They use the guilt of weak minded people who feel sorry for them to gain things they are not entitled to. It is similar to the commercial that show starving children in a third world country and beg you to contribute money to feed them. I always felt that perhaps the cameraman should give them something to eat if their hunger is such an important thing. In a similar fashion, why don't these people remain in the country of origin and make things better. They reason is they are too lazy, not educated enough, or simply feel their are entitled to break the law. So they enter OUR country illegally and count on either the guilt filled commoner or the liberals who want to court them for their votes to stay in power. It is a never ending cycle; unless they make their own lives better Look at all the US money they send back to their country of origin? If they had any allegiance to the United States, they would do things legally and assimilate into OUR culture instead of lowering OUR standard of living and dragging us down into the third world crap hole similar to where they came.


I guess my comment says it all.

"Illegal aliens continue to funnel directly into many of our local communities and adversely impact our way of life by overwhelming our schools, inundating our health care system and, most concerning, threatening our safety." - Duncan Hunter

Domestic Dispute Ends in a Deadly Shooting in Conroe, Texas


(Please play the video while you read the post)

This is from a copyrighted article in the Houston Chronicle posted on December 20, 2008 at 9:26PM CST.

A woman's 80-year-old grandfather fatally shot her estranged husband after he tried to take their two children from the grandparents' house, Conroe police said Saturday. Brice Wade Boudreaux, 32, died Friday evening at the home on Silver Creek Drive in Conroe, police said in a statement.

The investigation was ongoing Saturday, and it was not immediately clear whether the grandfather would face charges. He was questioned by police and released.

According to police, Boudreaux's estranged wife and children have been living with her grandparents for about five months.

When Boudreaux arrived Friday and tried to take the children, the grandfather intervened and ordered him to leave. Boudreaux refused, pushing the man out of the way, the statement said.

The grandfather then allegedly retrieved a revolver from another room and placed it in his back pocket before again advising Boudreaux, who was aware the older man had a gun, to leave, police said.

As the two left the home out to the driveway, Boudreaux again pushed the older man and allegedly struck him in the chest area where he recently had a pacemaker inserted, police said.

Fearing for his life, police said the older man then allegedly shot Boudreaux once, killing him.


The grandfather is a hero for protecting his daughter, his grandchildren, and himself. The son-in-law was a criminal and deserved what he got!


To quote Freddie Mercury of Queen: "Another One Bites the Dust."

Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Saluting

I found this in "The New York Times."


He’s not the commander in chief yet, but was President-elect Barack Obama briefly practicing his salute on Sunday?

On the first morning of his vacation here, Mr. Obama arrived at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii for his daily workout. As he walked out of the Semper Fit Center, his gray T-shirt soaked in sweat, he lifted his right hand and gave a quick salute to two Marines in fatigues who were standing in the distance.

The brief moment was not captured by cameras. Photographs and video were not permitted to be taken on the military base, according to campaign aides.


Saluting two Marines in the distance? This certainly bothers me, as it did with Slick Willie. I do not care if he has been elected to the office of POTUS, he did not serve in the military and has no right to throw a salute at anyone.

After all, we all know his total contempt for the military. I think this just adds insult to injury. And this from a man who will has been seen not placing his hand over his heart to support this country.


"My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join me as we try to change it." - Barack HUSSEIN Obama

Obama Report to Detail Camp's Relationship with Blagojevich

In an article published in the Houston Chronicle at 3:11PM CST today, it is stated resident-elect Barack Obama will offer details early this week about his transition staff's contact with Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who is facing federal charges of plotting to swap appointment of Barack HUSSEIN Obama's Senate successor for cash or a job.

I will save space and post the link to the article
here.

It also stated that the official, who requested anonymity because the report is not yet public, said transition aides were eager to make public their findings about discussions with Blagojevich's office and move past the distraction that the governor's scandal had become.

The main question is how much is "The Messiah" involved?

Of course Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro) was and is involved. Everything remotely connected with him and his "homies" is known to him. He uses people to get what he wants and then throws them under the bus, like the ancient samurai who takes the fall for his war lord. He is involved, mark my words. The Boy Wonder has not even taken the oath of office and the dirty trial of his political career is catching up with him.

"I was appalled and disappointed by what we heard in those transcripts. Here in Illinois, as I think is true across the country, there is a tradition of public service where people are getting in it for the right reasons and to serve. But there's also a tradition where people view politics as a business." - Barack HUSEIN Obama

"Lean On Me" Joe Clark Speech

Joe Clark was labeled by some, as a tyrant, but I feel he had the guts to do what needed to be done.

This is a clip from the movie "Lean On Me" in which he answered questions on why he threw students out of school.

Oh for the days we could do that. It might make a large difference in our schools today.

Sit back and enjoy!!!

"And that's why I threw those bastards out and that's all I gonna say" - Joe Clark, as played by Morgan Freeman in "Lean On Me"

Blagojevich Punished By Obama?

This is an interesting piece I found on YouTube. It claims Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich paid the price for defying President-Elect Barack Obama. In setting-up a pay-to-play scheme for Obama's vacated Senate seat, he rejected Obama's choice Valerie Jarrett and in doing so, caused "The Boy Wonder" to pull the strings to have Rod Blagojevich arrested.

I do not know if I agree with all of his statement, but it does rasie some interetsing points....very interesting points indeed.

"there are always a few bad apples." - Rod Blagojevich

John Wayne: "I Pledge Allegiance" Chapter 2

Today, I was reading my e mail and posting comments to my and various other blogs. I came across a comment on a post I made on October 8, 2008 entitled "

The post I made was as follows:


This is the best explanation of the Pledge Of Allegiance I have ever heard. God Bless America and John Wayne. If only we had him still with us. We should could use his inspiration right now!


It bothers me when I see people not showing the proper respect for our flag and our country. If you want to live in this country, then you need to show proper respect for the things we hold dear and proper. If not, GET THE HELL OUT OF MY COUNTRY


The comment I received from a "KishMich" is posted below:


And if you can't get the HELL OUT OF THE COUNTRY...then what? Cause I wouldn't mind getting the hell out of here!!!! I know an even better place to live but because of child I can't leave!!! So my opinion is....I won't pledge and I can't
leave!!!!

I was very enraged by the comment this person made. After I cooled down and gave it some thought, I realized that this person "KishMach" must be a very misguided soul who has no idea what he/she has by living in this country.

This is a person who should make my list of "Famous (or Infamous) Mooks."

My quote today will be MY response to this person's idiotic comment:

KishMich: Boo Hoo...Boo Hoo...Boo Hoo!!! You can't leave because of a child you cannot leave. Why can't you take him/her with you? It is ingrates like you who bitch and gripe about our great country but won't man-up or woman-up to do anything to make your life better. As far as you "can't leave," actually, you CHOOSE NOT TO LEAVE. I wonder why, when you are living in a free country, claim you cannot leave? No one is keeping you here. If you do not like our country and can't stand up and show it, then LEAVE. If you cannot take your child with you, I am sure we can find a nice America Loving family that would be happy to raise him/her in a manner that will make them an outstanding citizen of our country who will be PROUD to stand up and pledge allegiance to The United States of America. - Texas Truth's response to a comment made on this blog by "KishMich"

Barack HUSSEIN Obama = Sargent Schultz?

The closer we get to the inauguration (coronation) of Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro), I have been thinking about how he reminds me of Sargent Schultz on "Hogan' Heroes."

It looks like he may just be the first President to take office with a tainted reputation BEFORE he gets sworn in.

1. The Reverend Jeremiah Wright

2. William Ayres

3. Tony Rezko

4. Governor Rod Blagojevich

All these folks are closely tied to Obama and yet he "knows nothing" about them.

"The Boy Wonder" claims he was not aware of what they are and have done. Either he is 1) the idiot who can't see his hand in front of his facr, or 2) guilty as sin. I'm betting he is number two.

Bush Ducks Two Shoes Thrown By Journalist

Yesterday an irate journalist threw a shoe at President George W. Bush while at a press conference in Iraq. Below is the article from Politico.com . There is a video clip below the quote on the incident.

Welcome to Baghdad. An Iraqi reporter set off pandemonium Sunday by hurling two shoes at President Bush during a news conference that was the centerpiece of his secret good-bye visit.

Bush was cool under fire and prevented an even bigger incident by waving off his lead Secret Service agent, who was prepared to extract him from the room.

Video shows the president's lead agent rushing to the podium, but the president immediately and subtly motions to him that it's OK. The agent backs off.

The president successfully ducked both throws. Photos show him with his head down near the top of the podium. The embarrassing incident marred a visit meant to show off the improved conditions since the troop "surge" dramatically reduced casualties to U.S. troops.

"This is a gift from the Iraqis. This is the farewell kiss, you dog," the journalist shouted (in Arabic), Steven Lee Myers of The New York Times reported in a pool report to the White House press corps.

Myers reported that the man threw the second shoe and added: "This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq."

Myers wrote in his pool report: "The president's appearance was interrupted by a man, apparently a journalist, who leapt to his feet and threw his shoe at the president, who ducked and thus narrowly missed being struck. Chaos ensued. The [man] threw a second shoe, which also narrowly missed the president. The man was roughly 12 feet from the lectern in the center of two rows of chairs, about two feet from the pool. A scrum of security agents descended on the man and wrestled him, first to the floor and then out of the ornate room where the press conference was taking place. The president was at no point injured and he brushed off the incident."

"All I can report is it is a size 10," Bush quipped.

I know how President-elect Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro)would have handled this incident. He would have run for the protection of the Secret Service and afterwards claimed he came under fire in Iraq.

Thank goodness for GWB keeping his cool in reacting to this. My quote today will be his response to the incident:


"All I can report is it is a size 10." - President George W. Bush

New UNEDUCATED Voters Put Obama in White House?

An article in the today's Houston Chronicle entited "Voter turnout in presidential election highest in 40 years" stated that "enthusiasm among blacks and Democrats for Barack Obama’s candidacy pushed voter turnout in this year’s elections to the highest level in 40 years."

For once, I have to agree with the "Branicle." The election DID bring many new voters to the poll.

Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro) courted the uneducated, unwashed masses to propel him to the White House. It was a fashionable thing to vote for the "boy wonder."

The unfortunate thing is that the majority of these supporters had no idea who or what they were voting for.

BHO will take this country into an era that historians will view as the darkest page in history.

The unabashed truth is that he does not have the experience, knowledge, or cojones to do the job. Get ready for a rough four years. It is inevitable.

Barach HUSSEIN Obama’s True Colors: Black, White ... or Neither?

An article was posted on the Houston Chronicle's website this morning concerning the debate over Barack HUSSEIN Obama's (aka Little Barry Soetoro's) title of 'first black president'

Why any intelligent American citizen cares a flying flip about this is beyond me.
His skin color is NOT THE ISSUE. It never was.

It would not matter if he is considered black, brown, yellow, green, a one eyed, one horned flying purple people eater, or a "mutt” (his own words).

He is not qualified and never should have been elected to the White House by the great uneducated unwashed masses of society.

"I identify as African-American — that’s how I’m treated and that’s how I’m viewed. I’m proud of it." - Barach HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro)

Red State Update: Obama Screws Over Bill Richardson

Jackie & Dunlap Look forward to four years of Bill Richardson as Secretary of Commerce.

Does anyone else think this appointment is a payback?!?!?!

"[A]s a former Ambassador to the United Nations, Bill [Richardson] brings both international stature and a deep understanding of today’s global economy. He understands that the success of today’s business in Detroit or Columbus often depends on whether it can sell products in places like Santiago or Shanghai. And he knows that America’s reputation in the world is critical not just to our security, but to our prosperity – that when the citizens of the world respect America’s leadership, they are more likely to buy America’s products." - Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro)

Red State Update: Obama Still Smokes

Jackie and Dunlap talk about the "relavation" that Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro) still smokes.

Enjoy the below clip.

Brokaw: "Have you stopped smoking?"
Obama: "You know, I have, but what I said was that, you know, there are times where I've fallen off the wagon. Well..."
Brokaw, seemingly astonished: "Well, wait a minute."
Obama, acting caught: "What can I tell..."
Brokaw, interrupting: "Then that means you haven't stopped."
Obama: "Well, the - fair enough. What I would say is, is that I have done a terrific job under the circumstances of making myself much healthier, and I think that you will not see any violations of these rules in the White House."

Court: No Review of Obama's Eligibility to Serve

The Supreme Court has turned down an emergency appeal from a New Jersey man who says President-elect Barack HUSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro) is ineligible to be president because he was a British subject at birth. The court did not comment on its order Monday rejecting the call by Leo Donofrio of East Brunswick, New Jersey to intervene in the presidential election.

This ruling is not going to end this issue. This will be a discussion that will follow the "Boy Wonder" his entire time as POTUS.

At least one other appeal over Barach HUSSEIN Obama's (aka Little Barry Soetoro's)citizenship remains at the court. Philip J. Berg of Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, argues that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii.

I wonder how many more scandals will emerge. Only time will tell.

Tribute to the Victims of Pearl Harbor

Today is December 7, 2008 and the 67th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

We should NEVER forget those who served and those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom and way of life.

When I first watched this, tears came to my eyes.

I shutter to think where this country is headed. It scares me. It scares me a great deal. I am very worries that the best days of our great country are behind us. I do not wish to dishonor this solemn day, but this country is in grave danger. I do not know if we will survive.

I will discuss more on this later. For now, listen to the words of FDR in his address to Congress. It was delivered on December 8, 1941.


The video clip is posted below the transcript of the speech

"Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with the government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.


Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleagues delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

Yesterday, the Japanese government also launched an attack against Malaya.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked Guam.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.

Last night, the Japanese attacked Wake Island.

This morning, the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.

As commander in chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us.

No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

I believe I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost, but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounding determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire."

The Last Starfighter

My Lovely Bride used to show "The Last Starfighter" movie to her junior school classes years ago before administrators begin interfering in classroom lessons.

She would use this movie to show the students about doing the right thing, becoming good at something, and having to courage to take a stand when one needs to.

It is not a great movie, but it is a good movie. I especially like Robert Preston as "Centauri." He was truly a great actor and always played any part he took to the hilt.

Watch it if you ever get a chance. It is a good movie to escape for a few hours from the pressures of everyday life.

Below is the trailer from the movie.

"Centauri: [voice in video game] Greetings, Starfighter. You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the frontier against Xur and the Ko-Dan armada."

How Many Dogs Does It Take To Screw In A Light Bulb?

Here is another item I found while surfing. It is entitled "How Many Dogs Does It Take To Screw In A Light Bulb?"

"Goldfinger" Theme

This is the theme to "Goldfinger" and it was preformed by Shirley Bassey. She had a vocie that made you wnat to get into the movie and "BE" James Bond. This song peaked on Billboard at number 8 in 1965. The movie stared Sean Connery as James Bond, Gert Frobe as Goldfinger, Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore, and Harold Sakata as Odd Job.

This song that gives you chills from the first bars. It convinces you of the menace of the film's "heavy" long before you lay eyes on him.

Enjoy.

Goldfinger.

He's the man,
The man with the Midas touch.
A spider's touch.

Such a cold finger,
Beckons you,
To enter his web of sin.
But don't go in.


Golden words he will pour in your ear.
But his lies can't disguise what you fear.
For a golden girl,

Knows when he's kissed her.

It's the kiss of death,
From Mister Goldfinger.

Pretty girl,
Beware of this heart of gold.
This heart is cold.

Golden words he will pour in your ear.
But his lies can't disguise what you fear.
For a golden girl,


Knows when he's kissed her.
It's the kiss of death,

From Mister Goldfinger.

Pretty girl,
Beware of this heart of gold.
This heart is cold.

He loves only gold.
Only gold.
He loves gold.
He loves only gold.
Only gold.
He loves gold!!!!!!

"Diamonds Are Forever" Theme

Shirley Bassey sang the theme song to "Diamonds Are Forever." She did an execllent job with the theme and I think it is exactly what Ian Fleming would have wanted for this particular James Bond movie.

Sit back and enjoy.




Diamonds are forever
They are all I need to please me
They can stimulate and tease me
They won't leave in the night, I've no fear that they might desert me

Diamonds are forever
Hold one up and then caress it
Touch it, stroke it and undress it
I can see every part; nothing hides in the heart to hurt me

I don't need love
For what good will love do me?
Diamonds never lie to me
For when love's gone
They'll luster on

Diamonds are forever
Sparkling round my little finger
Unlike men, the diamonds linger
Men are mere mortals who are not worth going to your grave for

I don't need love
For what good will love do me?
Diamonds never lie to me
For when love's gone
They'll luster on

Diamonds are forever, forever, forever
Diamonds are forever, forever, forever
Forever and ever

Paul Tibbets Interview Before His Death

Paul Tibbets, the man who commanded the B-29 that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, has been dead for a little over one year. I did a post on his passing on November 10, 2007. You can read it by clicking here.

I was surfing late this evening and found the below clip and information on General Tibbets.

He believed until the end that the bombing, which killed over 100 thousand Japanese people (most of them civilians), was justified. In a 1975 interview he said: “I’m proud that I was able to start with nothing, plan it and have it work as perfectly as it did… I sleep clearly every night.”

In 1976, Gen Tibbets was criticised for re-enacting the bombing at an air show in Texas. A mushroom cloud was set off as he over flew in a B-29 Superfortress in a stunt that outraged Japan. Gen Tibbets said it was not meant as an insult but the US government formally apologised.

In 1995, General Tibbets denounced as a “damn big insult” a planned 50th anniversary exhibition of the Enola Gay at the Smithsonian Institution that put the bombing in context of the suffering it caused. He and veterans groups said too much attention was being paid to Japan’s suffering and not enough to its military brutality.

Tibbets had requested that he be buried without a headstone or funeral ceremony, since he feared that opponents of the bombing would use them for protests.

Here is an interview conducted with Tibbets before he died, in which he questions the loyalty of Americans who speak out against the bombing.



"I knew when I got the assignment it was going to be an emotional thing, ... We had feelings, but we had to put them in the background. We knew it was going to kill people right and left. But my one driving interest was to do the best job I could so that we could end the killing as quickly as possible." - Paul Tibbets

Hiroshima Bomb and George W. Bush

I found the is clip on YouTube today. It has over 3,200 comments and most of them seemed to be against the USA dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and how badly screwed up the United States has been under President George W. Bush

My father and uncles fought in WW2. I am glad Truman dropped the bomb(s). It was one of the things he got right. We need more clear actions like that when our nation is threatened. Animals like the Japanese in WW2 only understand force. If they didn't like our end to the war, perhaps they should not have started it!!!

As far as Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro), he will try to negotiate us out of any war. A decision like that only allows our enemies to get stronger. Hostile actions against our country and its legal citizens should be met with extreme and overwhelming force!!!

"I’m proud that I was able to start with nothing, plan it and have it work as perfectly as it did… I sleep clearly every night." - General Paul Tibbets, the man who commanded the B-29 that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, in a 1975 interview.

Dr. No: Bikini Scene



This is a classic scene from the James Bond film Dr. No with Ursula Andress playing Honey Ryder. Ursula in the bikini was the first time I remember seeing a Bond girl. I was 8 when it came out and was living in France with my father, who was stationed there with the US Army. I do not remember when I first saw her, but it does not matter if I was 9, 19, 29 or 109, all this humble blogger can say is WOW!!!!


Honey Rider: Who is that?
James Bond: It's alright. I'm not supposed to be here either. I take it your not. Are you alone?
Honey Ryder: What are you doing here? Looking for shells?
James Bond: No, I'm just looking.
Honey Ryder: Stay where you are.
James Bond: I promise I won't steal your shells.
Honey Rider: I promise you you won't either. Stay where you are.
James Bond: I can assure you my intentions are strictly honorable.

Former Cheerleaders Face Judge; Possible Jail Time

[Shown is the 2007-2008 Morton Ranch High School Varsity Cheerleading Squad. (names in italics were the young women who were indicted: TOP ROW: Addie Garner (mascot), Jewel Grandberry, Heather Brun, Eve Adame, Kaylee Lauden, Courtney Weisheit, Morgan Engelder, Erin Price (cheer coach) BOTTOM ROW: Hannah Cochran, Hayley Davis, Kelly Buffa, Brooke Borwell, Madison Tanner, Kirsten Davis]

Six former cheerleaders and the former mascot from Katy's Morton Ranch High School made their first court appearances today on hazing charges based on allegations that they pushed junior varsity cheerleaders, bound and blindfolded, into a swimming pool.

Seven former suburban Houston high school varsity cheerleaders face misdemeanor charges accusing them of hazing other cheerleaders. Those FORMER cheerleaders and mascot Adelynn Garner (school mascot), 18, and varsity cheerleaders Kelly Buffa, 17; Hannah Cochran, 18; Halely Davis, 17; Kirsten Davis, 17; Meigan Goff, 18; and Madison Tanner, 17.

Click
here to view mug shots of five of the seven FORMER cheerleaders.

Harris County District Attorney Kenneth Magidson hads stated the ex-cheerleaders restrained several junior varsity cheerleaders, blindfolded them, bound their hands and pushed them into a swimming pool in an off-campus hazing incident.

If convicted, the teens face up to six months in jail and a fine of $2,000.

Katy Independent School District police initiated the investigation, which was then referred to the grand jury that issued the indictment.

This is yet another case of a group of privileged prima donnas, who have been “granted” notoriety because of their popularity with other students, doing whatever they choose no matter the pain, embarrassment, and stress said choices inflicted on others.

Every group in school knows that hazing is against the law. These young women knew what they were doing was against their organization’s constitution, school rules and state laws.

Kudos to the Katy ISD for suspending the cheerleading program. Young women such as these will push the rules to the limit and then use their position in school and the community to elude any punishment or consequences.

Too much emphasis is placed on being “on the squad” in junior high and high school. In many cases, once they make said squad, they are viewed as untouchable and can pretty much do whatever they want.

Perhaps if these young women spend some time in jail and their parents are hit with major settlements, after the ensuing civil actions take place, they and others will think twice before they act in a manner to bring grief to others, themselves, their families and their respective organization.



"Why....the fourth class man who is compelled to fight a man from the first class hasn't a show in the world, and it is not intended that he should. I have read the rules provided to prevent such practices, and they are wholly deficient, because one provision is omitted. I would make it the duty of a cadet to report to the authorities any case of hazing which came to his notice; make such reports a part of the vaunted West Point 'code of honor' and the beating of young boys by upper class men will be stopped." - Mark Twain, in an interview for the New York Times, January 20, 1901 on cadet hazing at West Point (United States Military Academy)

The Real Voice of General Patton

Many people often associate the rough voice of George C. Scott with General George S. Patton's persona, but his real voice was actually quite different.

Listen and enjoy.
