Veterans Day 2008: “Veterans Day is for…”
November 11, 2008, 6:35 pm

Having trouble getting my thoughts together to blog lately but I didn’t want to miss Vet’s day.

Philippians 1:3: “I thank my God every time I remember you…”

The Department of Veterans Affairs has a great collection of previous Veterans Day posters. Go check ’em out!

MadOgre says it best on Vet’s Day:

Veterans Day: Just a word to you cake eating civilians out there… You don’t say Happy Veterans Day. You don’t say Merry Vets Day. But just because you don’t have a meaningless Seasons Greetings for it doesn’t mean you don’t say anything.

This isn’t some fat bunny in a sled passing around Jack O’Lanterns because it’s Santa’s birthday… This isn’t about some old fable-become-tradition.

Veterans Day is a day for those that are still alive, and for those who are dead… those who died for your freedom to flip soldiers the bird and to call them baby killers and spit on them in the airport.

Veterans Day is for the guys that died fighting for your personal independent liberty…

It’s for that Veteran that walks with just a slight limp and seems otherwise fine, but he doesn’t have a spleen because an enemy of our country blew it out his back with an AK-47 so you can get 15% Off that new leather fat-ass reclining couch that your going to sit on to mock the President from while watching your 42 inch plasma TV flipping through the channels trying to find some Friends rerun.

Veterans Day is for the guy that came home while all his friends didn’t.

Veterans day is for the woman who gave up the best years of her young adulthood so she could press her hands over the sucking chest wound of some guy from her own home town 6 thousand miles away from home.

Veterans day is for that old woman over there that raised 2 kids alone because when she was young she sent her handsome young husband off to fight for your freedom and came back as a flag folded into a triangle.

That’s what Veterans day is for… and what do you say to those people who served?

You just say “Thank You”.

Via Breitbart, Barney the White House Dog does what others often fail to do, defend W.

Reuters political reporter Jon Decker had finished an interview with MSNBC around 10:30 a.m. when he saw Barney and his handler. After getting permission to pet the dog, Decker said Barney snapped and chomped down on his right index finger and broke the skin.

” China urges Obama to respect free trade, defends currency policy”

…is the headline of this AFP article.

Imagine that, a communist country demonstrating concern that the president-elect of a capitalist country may have a problem with the current status quo of free trade between the two nations?

Ironical, eh?

Nikita Khrushchev to Ezra Taft Benson: Slowly you will succumb to socialism…

“I have talked face to face with the godless communist leaders. It may surprise you to learn that I was host to Mr. Khrushchev for a half day when he visited the United States, not that I’m proud of it. I opposed his coming then, and I still feel it was a mistake to welcome this atheistic murderer as a state visitor. But, according to President Eisenhower, Khrushchev had expressed a desire to learn something of American Agriculture — and after seeing Russian agriculture I can understand why. As we talked face to face, he indicated that my grandchildren would live under communism. After assuring him that I expected to do all in my power to assure that his and all other grandchildren will live under freedom he arrogantly declared in substance:

“ ‘You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.’”

Darn right nearly prophetic, ain’t it?

Steven Den Beste’s “Not the end of the world”

A lot of bad things are going to happen during this term. But I don’t think that this is an irreversible catastrophe for the union. I’ve lived long enough to absorb this basic truth: the US is too large and too strong to destroy in just 4 years. Or even in 8. We survived 6 years of Nixon. We survived 4 years of Carter. We even survived 8 years of Clinton, God alone knows how.

The President of the United States is the most powerful political figure in the world, but as national executives go his powers are actually quite restricted. Obama will become President, but he won’t be dictator or king, let alone deity. He still has to work with the House and the Senate, and he still has to live within Constitutional restrictions, and with a judiciary that he mostly didn’t appoint.

The main reason this will be a “coming of age” moment is that now Obama and the Democrats have to put up or shut up. Obama got elected by making himself a blank slate, with vapid promises about “hope” and “change” — but now he actually has to do something. Now he has to reveal his true agenda. And with the Democrats also having a majority in both chambers of Congress, now the Democrats really have to lead. And they’re not going to do a very good job of it. It’s going to be amusing to watch.

And the people who fell for the demagoguery will learn an invaluable lesson.

Are you a dejected conservative Eeyore in need of some perspective?  I highly encourage you to read on.

President-elect Barack Hussein Obama

Congratulations to President-elect Barack Hussein Obama.

You carried out a hard fought campaign against an admirable opponent and a great American patriot, Senator John McCain.

While I vehemently disagree with the platform of your campaign, your personal associations, and many of your core political beliefs and ideas for the future of our nation, I pledge to you the following:

  • I will not stand by idly while our Constitution is under assault by liberal activist judges and leftist legislators who seek to undermine the very purpose of its foundation.

and finally and most importantly above all,

Congratulations President-elect Obama and may God bless.
