She Wore A Yellow Ribbon

A clip from "She Wore A Yellow Ribbon" with John Wayne and Ben Johnson.

"She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" is a 1949 western film directed by John Ford and was the second of Ford's trilogy of films focusing on the US Cavalry, the other two films being Fort Apache (1948) and Rio Grande (1950).

With a budget of $1.6 million, the film was one of the most expensive westerns of the time, but became a major hit for RKO and remains a popular classic today.

An Educational Method That GOT Results

Noted speech therapist John Wayne uses an unorthodox, yet effective method to cure a young man of a speech impediment.

It would be great if we, as educators, were allowed to use such methods to get the job done in the classroom. Sometimes using PC methods only results in further problems. After all, most of MY generation was raised like this, and we didn't turn out half bad.

Obamamania and the Houston Mayoral Race

Today My Lovely Bride and I were driving around Houston, seeing the sites. We were stopped at a light at the corner of Alabama and Travis and I spied the following painted on the side of a building.

To the right of the previous sign was this:

Below shows how the were together on the same external wall of the building.

We made the block to see what the building was. It turned out to be a campaign headquarters for Gene Locke for Mayor. He is running for mayor of Houston. The thing that caught my eye was the the signs did not have the weather beaten look of signs that had been up since before the election. In fact, they looked almost new.

I wondered about how Obamamania has overtaken the country and people using him and his image for every imaginable thing. As I have stated numerous times in the past, Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo. The Cult Leader) is a rock star, not a POTUS. Could you imagine if a poster of either President Bush or Ronald Reagan was on the side of a building such as the above photos? They would have been defaced within hours.

People have been caught up in Obamamania since way before the election and it is taking this country right down the toilet and I have not even addressed Tony Hawk skateboarding in down a hall of the White House.

Obama: "Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself"

Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo. The Cult Leader) says the biblical command to "love thy neighbor as thyself" is as pertinent now as it has ever has been in remarks at the Esperanza National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast and Conference in Washington.

The Boy Wonder stated Friday that an entire community suffers when some members cannot pay their mortgages or find jobs.

Again the hypocritical mantra of BO amazes me. I believe The Big Zero has mentioned God and religion more than George W. Bush even did. Where are the liberals complaining about religion and politics?

I guess Little Barry Soetoro feel whatever help his agenda is fair game.

Houston Area Homeowner KILLS Teen Crackhead

A 69-year old Houston homeowner shot and killed a 17-year-old teen crackhead in his yard on Wednesday (yesterday).
Read the article in the Houston Chronicle here.

Much has been posted on the Chronicle's forums in the past two days. The majority view the situation as it was a justifiable shooting. The police have referred the case to the grand jury without charges.

I will post updates as they occur.

Is American Fast Slipping Into A Third World Country?

There was an article today in the Houston Chronicle concerning the launch of space shuttle Endeavour.
The story gave the pros and cons of a Wednesday launch and as usual, sparked various comments on the story.

A poster,
JewelryArnold, wrote the following comment on the article.

And without NASA America slips into 3rd world status where it is teetering on already. Wake up people, America will soon if it has not been passed up by smart brains in China and India. The way I see it, America is finished! All this bickering of where to spend money. Technology is the name of the game for the upcoming century and if you are not on board then you are left in the ashes. Children in countries such as China and India want to succeed and make something good out of their lives, in America all they can think to be is a Rap star or a basketball player, a far cry from a technical mind which they need to put them back on top of the world as far as education goes. All you people do is blame either the democrats or the republicans, how stupid!! Do you remember when America first went to the moon, America was looked up to, well not any more. Now America is looked to for starting wars it is a war mongering nation only and that is where all your tax dollars are being spent. WAKE UP STUPID AMERICANS!!

I found myself both agreeing and disagreeing with JewelryArnold. However he did made one point that I did completely agree with. It was "Wake up people, America will soon if it has not been passed up by smart brains in China and India. The way I see it, America is finished! All this bickering of where to spend money. Technology is the name of the game for the upcoming century and if you are not on board then you are left in the ashes."

I posted the following response:

JewelryArnold: I must agree with one of your points. America is INDEED slipping into third world status. Technology IS the name of the game for the current (21st) and upcoming (22nd) centuries. Education in this country is being dumbed down to allow everyone to succeed and in doing so, lowers the achievement level of everyone. People NEED to fail if they cannot cut the mustard. I am in education and see it every day. The level at which I am forced to teach today is so much lower than 30 years ago. We are forced to think about the students' "feelings" more than educating them. China and India have passed us in the level of success when it comes to education. This may offend some (and I really don't care if it does), but the culture of many of our students is driven by the ME...ME...ME attitude. What is in it for me? How is this going to profit me? How hard is this going to be on me? When these students' parents and families do not value education, they why should they? They expect that have a property right to everything, and in order to appease them, politicians from both parties are more than happy to provide all their needs in order to secure their support and insure their desire to remain in power. I could go on for hours on this topic, but for now I will close with a quote from the movie "Caddyshack." To quote Judge Smails, "The world needs ditch diggers, too." IMHO, if people are too stupid, too lazy, or by any other personal choice are unwilling to make something of their lives, then they can dig those ditches, shovel crap, flip burgers, or do whatever menial tasks they can find to survive. I really do not care. If they do not care about their lives, then why should the self motivated, educated people of the world care? I worked hard to get what I have and they can do the same or they can starve.

I think my response says it all. Please let me know what YOU think about it. I post on the Houston Chronicle boards as "texasquestion."

The DEATH of Analog Television

Today is the last day for free antenna viewing television. I still have a few TVs in my home that receive signals from an antenna.

One is my RCA battery powered handheld TV (which I use while travelling and during power outages). The other is in our master bathroom, so we can listen to the news, weather, etc. while getting ready for work.

In addition, I have two more battery powered portable TVs which we bought over the years.

As of 6:45 CDT tomorrow, they will all be obsolete. I will eventually go out and buy a small handheld digital TV, but that will come at a later time

However, we am now in possession of four units of which we cannot use.

America is a country of thinkers. We have overcome adversity and found solutions for problems for generations.

I would like to see is an in depth, very detailed article, based on extensive research on what to do with old analog, handheld, pocket televisions. I hate to see things sit around and gather dust when there has to be uses for said items.

Other than becoming a paperweight or a doorstop, are there any ideas of how they can be adapted or used? There has to be some old time tinkerers out there that have some ideas.

Miss California Is FIRED

I guess freedom of speech and expression is not something that the left can tolerate.

Jacqueline Bisset in "The Deep" (Repost)

"The Deep" was on again last night. I had to delete my previous post on the movie due to some glitches with my post.

As I stated in that post,
Jacqueline Bisset was an absolute beauty when she was in the movie. There are two shots from the movie that made a great number of men rush out to get certified to scuba dive.

To the right is one of those photos. I will post the other later.

"After filming The Deep, all they talked about was my tits for the next four years. God, if I was going to do a picture like that, I'd have done it a lot sexier. That looked like two fried eggs on a platter." - Jacqueline Bisset

Danica Patrick's Commerical for Boost Mobile

It is amazing to me that some people are so damn thinned skinned when it comes to life.

Danica Patrick, who happens to be not only a damn good race car driver, but a damn good-looking woman. She is currently in a commercial for telecom company Boost Mobile, showing Patrick getting her car serviced by a pit crew wearing skimpy tops, miniskirts and high heels. "What? You think this is wrong?" asks Patrick. "I'll tell you what's wrong. Paying extra to use all your phone's basic features."

The transgender community have gone ballistic. Monica Helms, an employee of Boost Mobile's parent company, Sprint Nextel, and activist for the transgender community was quote in the national media saying:

"Even though the commercial does not specifically make fun of trans people, out of the 300 million Americans, many will use this as another excuse to discriminate and hold back equality for Transgender Americans."


"Even though the commercial does not specifically make fun of trans people, out of the 300 million Americans, many will use this as another excuse to discriminate and hold back equality for Transgender Americans."

Is this woman a total idiot? I think so. View the commercial below and let me know what you think.

My quote for the day says it all:

D Day-June 6, 1944: Then and Now

Sixty-five years ago today, my uncle (my father's brother) jumped off a landing craft and waded ashore at Normandy Beach to begin the D Day invasion of France. He was in his 20s and must have been filled with so much fear and terror. I cannot imagine how he felt; his emotions; his feelings

Growing up the son of a veteran of World War 2, Korea, and Vietnam, I was schooled from a young age the importance of honoring those who picked up a weapon and fought to defend our country.

Today, Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo. The Cult Leader, The Current Temporary Resident of the White House) will visit the Normandy area of France to commemorate the Invasion.

I cannot express my disgust for his audacity to visit an honored place in our history with his visible hatred of the military. I have poised the question before. "How can he give orders to a military person when he never wore a uniform and stood a post in defense of the United States?"

I understand as the POTUS, he is expected by tradition to honor those who served our country. It is the right thing to do. It is the proper thing to do.

What I cannot accept is the fact that he says one thing and believes another. He will very eloquently deliver the words and phrases that make people believe he cares. He spoke during the election about his great uncle liberated concentration camps during World War 2.

It was later learned that the facts he gave as to his relative's involvement were inaccurate. In fact, his great-uncle states recently that Little Barry Soetoro was never interested in the his involvement until the election.

He further stated that The Boy Wonder's visit to Buchenwald was a political move. I could not agree more.

The lenghts to which BO will go to further his rock star status is unparallelled in modern history. The Big Zero is only interested in his own agenda. He is only interested in the revision of America in the model of his mother's socialist-Marxist beliefs.

So today, as true red-blooded Americans honor the efforts and sacrifices of those who landed at Normandy Beach, I will reflect on the veterans; their stories and exploits.

The actions of The Big Zero today will be seen by some as moral, truthful, and heartfelt. Others will view P Bo's performance as self serving. The readers of this forum know how I view it.

As in everything The Cult Leader does; it is for HIS benefit. It is not for the benefit of those he is sworn to serve or those who served long ago.

To cheapen the memory of my uncle and those who stormed the beaches of France and faced heavy Nazi gunfire on that day sixty-five years ago by giving The Current Temporary Resident of the White House any mileage from the exploits his wrong.

"The men of Normandy had faith that what they were doing was right, faith that they fought for all humanity, faith that a just God would grant them mercy on this beachhead or the next. It was the deep knowledge -- and pray to God we have not lost it -- that there is a profound moral difference between the use of force for liberation and the use of force for conquest." - Ronald Reagan

Red State Update: Obama Gives Speech To Fellow Muslims

Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo. The Cult Leader) gave his big Muslim speech in Cairo. How did Muslims react? What about Israel? Most importantly, what about Jackie Broyles and Dunlap?

BHO Leaves His Wife at Home

Did anyone else notice that Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo. The Cult Leader) didn't take his better half with him on this trip? I wonder why?

Could it be he was concerned that his Muslim hosts would be offended that his wife is not Muslim?

The public will figure this fraud's game out soon. He cannot use doublespeak much longer.

Insomnia and Obama

I could not sleep last night and while I was stilling in my living room, thinking about the problems of the world. I turned on the television and the POTUS was giving his speech in Cairo. I watched and listened and learned a great deal more about his and his views.

Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo. The Cult Leader) will do and say ANYTHING he can to get and remain in power. How on GOD'S GREEN EARTH can he give orders to a person in the military when he NEVER picked up a weapon to defend this country?

I listened to him on TV LIVE from Cairo this morning, and to the talking heads' analysis his speech this evening. He is playing to an audience of which he is so desperately trying to be accepted.

Oprah's Love Child virtually put down the Israelis and gave all kinds of praise to the Palestinians. He will play anyone and everyone to further his agenda, which happens to be in HIS best interest. The Boy Wonder talks a good game but has no substance, no experience, and no interest in helping the masses.

BO only wants to further the socialist democrat agenda. He will go down in history as the absolute worst POTUS in history. You think Carter was bad? Carter was a great President compared to this guy!!!

People were labeled as racist when they brought up his middle name (HUSSEIN) and now he uses is to his benefit. When the next terror attack comes against American interests and push come to shove, he will be getting shoved quite a bit by countries that know he will not shove back.

It will be like that little wimp boy in the schoolyard who everyone picks on and runs to the teacher from protection. The only different is that there is no teacher to protect him. We need a person in the White House who is not afraid to stand up and take aggressive action.

Has Little Barry Soetoro ever done anything manly and aggressive in his life? I sure would like to know.

"If you want the president, Barack Obama, to succeed, then you want the government taking over more and more of the average daily life of the American people. I don’t want that. I define America succeeding by virtue of Obama failing. I love America. I want everybody to succeed. He’s making it harder for that to happen, particularly the middle class." - Rush Limbaugh
