I'm blessed...

Now I know why Chris always liked taking the care packages we send out to our soldiers; talking to people in line is pretty cool. We now have a total of 25 soldiers. The freight charges are starting to add up, but it's still managable. The last two times people from my work have helped chip in for the shipping. The the thing that really surprised me were total strangers throwing in whatever money they had in their pockets. They usually peak over and try to see where all the packages are going. I then explain to them that I went on this website and adopted a soldier which grew to 25. It revitalizes me by the reaction I get. Americans are still pretty patriotic and think about the soldiers fighting for our freedom. It's something I hope won't evaporate with all the negativism coming from the media and democrats.

Watch out for this damn movie, "Jarhead".

Please be aware if you go see this movie, Jarhead. In fact instead of wasting $30 on seeing this movie, maybe save it for a soldiers care package. This movie is nothing, but one man's guilt over killing another human being in a time of war. Along with the moral debate over killing, they also follow the liberal playbook and portray the Marines as mentally disturbed. I have to tell you that I was at the airport the other day and read the last 20 pages of this book. I believe in free speech, but it seems Swofford and his Hollywood buddies don't feel the same way. Just like this idiot Riekoff with Operation Truth your opinion really doesn't count unless you've been in combat. Because I didn't make the life choices that they did I some sort of "chickenhawk". It just shows how shallow their arguments are when it comes to war. Throughout history really crappy things have happened, but if we followed their line of logic (illogic) Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt were big "chickenhawks". Between the both of them a million Americans died in combat. Another 2 million were injured. Families were dislocated and changed forever. But one could not argue with the result. When men made of lesser stuff would've settled for less, who knows how much darker this world would have been if they've faltered? That is why it was so important that we kicked Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait. If Clinton was President at the time Kuwait was invaded nothing would've happened. Saddam would've been a nuclear power and had the free world under his thumb. The movie basically comes down to Swofford's opinion that nobody is worth killing in war. It's because of this flawed opinion that I believe that killing is necessary when it comes to protecting this country. They don't want to debate. Only just to silence and shame. Spend your hard earned money on something else.

Reaching out to an Iraqi!!

This is a letter I sent to "Sooni" an Iraqi that has a blog.Dear Sooni,

Hello from Vallejo, Ca. It's about 30miles northeast of San Francisco. I found your blog through American Soldier. I have my own blog also at
Take a look when you get a chance. I think you'll get an understanding of my political point of view. The reason I write you today because I need to know, "Is there light at the end of the tunnel?" I live in the Land of the loonies. Every other week it seems I debate some other liberal who has this blind "hatred" of President Bush. Any good news from Iraq is discounted and they feign phony concern when an American soldier dies. When the 2000th American soldier was killed in Iraq I thought the liberals were going to stand up and cheer. Hoping that the American public is going to agree with them and have our soldiers run with their tales between their legs. Personally I think the Liberals today are the knew racists similar to the Ku Klux Klan.
It frightens me to think what would have happened if they were prevalent in World War II. Michael Moore would've probably made a movie blaming Roosevelt for the attack on Pearl Harbor. In fact he would of said that Roosevelt knew about the sneak attack and let it happen. You see Sooni my father was kid growing up in the Philippines. He saw first hand the brutality the Imperial Japanese inflicted on the Filipinos. My wife's Grandfather was a Filipino American soldier. He was Bataan Death March survivor. American and Filipino soldiers were forced to march 100km in the searing sun. They weren't given any food or water. To make matters worse he had malaria. The Japanese guards were ordered to get the prisoners to Camp O'donnell the quickest way possible. The POW's weren't allowed to break out of formation. If the sick fell behind they were beheaded. If they tried to get water from a stream they were beheaded. The prisoners when allowed to rest were forced to piss and shit wherever they were squatting. The civilian Filipinos along the way were not immune the Japanese evil and brutality. If they tried to give food or water they were bayoneted. Roosevelt and General Marshall wrote the Philippines off. They didn't even think it was worth liberating. You see militarily it would've been smarter just to blockade and bomb Japan into submission. If it wasn't for General MacArthur keeping his promise to return who knows what other horrors the Filipinos would've had to endure.
The Americans came and liberated the Philippines. The GI's showed great kindness and helped the Filipinos rebuild. It was because of this kindness that my father wanted to join the US Army. He wanted to repay America for liberating his country. For 24 years he was in the Army and retired a Master sergeant. He fought in Korea and did two extended tours in Vietnam from '64 to '68. While he was in Vietnam he served as an interpreter and advisor to several South Vietnamese Ranger Battalions. The Vietnamese were drawn to him and he believed that they deserved a chance to live in freedom. It was why he stayed so long. There were several things that irritated him though. The South Vietnamese had good fighters, but shitty leaders. It seems the French taught the women to look sexy, but didn't bother to grow any strong leaders. Problem 1. Next the Johnson and Nixon administrations didn't fight it in a manner to defeat the Communist. Problem 2. Finally the peaceniks and liberals didn't believe one American life was worth saving the Vietnamese. Oh they say they cared for the Vietnamese, but it was because of them undermining the war effort that it went on so long. Problem 3. After the fall of Saigon the slaughter truly began in southeast Asia. Cambodia had a killing field of 2million. Laos lost 1million. Vietnam lost a 1million plus another 2million displaced refugees. Not a peep from the freakin liberals. They didn't give a shit. Not one protest against the Communist for the slaughter they unleashed. It's the same people that want us out of Iraq. They could give a rats ass if Iraq turns into another killing field. They don't want to lift a finger to help your country.
As for me I support the mission and especially the troops. It is amazing to me that until Iraq voted for this new constitution that Israel was the only democracy in the Middle East. I think your country is worth the effort. The cradle of civilization shouldn't be a third world country. It should be a full fledge democracy and allowed to flourish and thrive. My father told me never to forget the blood the Americans had to shed to liberate the Philippines. 27,000 Americans died keeping us free, another 100,000 were wounded, many of them seriously. Some were volunteers, most were draftees I doubt they wanted to be away from there families and die in a foreign land. I'm truly grateful for their service and sacrifice. It is why today that I've adopted 25 soldiers in Iraq. I send them letters of support and care packages. A lot of them are on their second tour. The majority want to see your country stand on it's own. It's because of my shame that I didn't join the Army when I had the chance to, that I'm going to learn Arabic. I'm too old for the Army now, but they are in desperate need of translators. I'm trying my darndest to get over to Iraq so I can help and make a difference. It wouldn't be easy for me. I'm married and have four kids. But what kind of father would I be to my sons if I didn't try to make the world a better place. I think the world would be a better place if Iraq was a democracy.
Sooni, what do I tell the liberals that say we should leave? Do the majority of Iraqis hate the Americans and want them out? Are they even aware or grateful of the sacrifices that the soldiers and their families have to endure. You are the first Iraqi that I've written and tried to reach out to. Please tell me what you think and feel. It would be good to hear from you. May God bless and protect you.

A proud American,
Peter M

It's business as usual with the Bush "Haters".

It's been a while since I've posted on my blog. The last month has been crazy. I had an inventory at my work and after that Christel and I went on vacation. It was a long time coming, but Christel and I had Soldier Angels withdrawals. Don't get me wrong we had fun on our vacation, but those brave soldiers were not far from our minds and hearts. Well we've been back for about a week and took an inventory on how many "heroes" we've adopted. It turns out we have 24 fine people. They range from different parts of the US, plus different ages to marital status. They just want to feel supported. Let me say that it truly demoralizes them when they hear the bullshit line "We support the troops, but we don't support he mission.". As if the troops would do the "devils" bidding.
I'd like to congratulate the Soldiers on doing another great job in Afghanistan and Iraq. Since I've last written they had two successful elections in both countries. For the majority of these people it's the first time that they were able to vote in a fair and free election. Something that many people in this country take for granted. To them I salute and congratulate them on taking charge of their future. I pray that they also remember the sacrifices that our brave soldiers endure. Without these great soldiers the worlds would truly be a dark place.

The Bush Bashing is truly turning sick.

I don't know what these poor souls will do once President Bush is no longer in office. While I truly disagreed with many of President Clinton's policies my opposition was not motivated with "hate". My morning didn't start out with "How can I hurt Clinton today?" Hell, I wanted us to win Kosovo. I didn't give a crap that it would be a political triumph for Clinton. Oh by the way you liberals, Clinton promised the troops to be home by Christmas. Which still hasn't happened, with no foreseeable pull out in sight. Sydney Blumenthal (Clinton sycophant) doesn't mention the money we've used occupying Kosovo, could've been used to upgrade the levees. But the fact is that the Federal government has ballooned into a unwieldy monster. From the bureaucrat, to the labor unions all entrenching themselves at the trough of federal spending. Expecting only the Military to endure true cuts in spending. The disaster that Katrina has left behind has only reinforced the fact that YOU AND YOUR FAMILY are on your own till the government can get back on its feet. But just like typical Democrats they expect the Federal government to immediately ride on its "white horse" (Sorry Kanye, Rev Jesse and all Bush haters) and save the day. Bullsh!t !!!!! For decades state politicians and mayors have handed over this 800lbs gorilla to the next. Here is dirty little secret that few people know, New Orleans was always in danger of flooding with just a slight "heavy rain". The pumps that kept New Orleans dry could barely keep up with the demand. Yet for all these years it was ok with them. Louisiana and New Orleans have made billions on the oil industry and Mardi Grais, but it wasn't their "fault" when this Category 5 storm hit. It all of sudden falls on the feet of George W. Bush. One thing that could've easily alleviated the suffering and death these poor people had to endure was that the 2200 buses "strategically" parked next to the Superdome are now underwater and useless. From the moment that they knew that New Orleans was going to be hit they could've evacuated a great many people. But for whatever stupid reason the liberal media doesn't seem to want to ask this "brave" mayor or governor this question?

How come the ACLU and anarachists aren't in New Orleans?

Watching New Orleans crumble into lawlessness is truly sad. It makes me glad to know that I purchased my shotgun. In a disaster on biblical proportions it's obvious the government can't protect you or your property. The San Francisco Bay area is going to have a catastrophic earthquake, not "if" but when. My wife Christel and I decided to upgrade all our provisions in case an earthquake does hit. I'd suggest you do the same. Ya never know. Here's some suggestions to my looney neighbors. To you "anarchists" why not rush into New Orleans. It's gotta be your dream situation. No law, no government and no rules. But I doubt these phony, misguided, idiots wouldn't even want to be near New Orleans. It would be all bad "no Starbucks and can't watch Jackass" on MTV forget that sh^t. Next, forget the National Guard. Send in an army of ACLU lawyers. Maybe they can go around and ask the victims if they thought they were victimized by President Bush's Global Warming policies? They could also go around and put signs in front of good liberals houses that are still standing. Signs like "This house protected by love and good intentions." or "A gun has never fed a hungry child." I wonder if these misunderstood looters would pass them over because of their big hearts?

God works in wierd ways.

My wife and I have the great honor of adopting a couple of soldiers, thru We've been sending out mail, email and care packages to them. Last week we heard from one of them and I can't tell you how much our lives have changed. James is a great guy and we found out that his wife is in the Army, too. She's serving in Iraq while he's in Afghanistan (the forgotten war). These people are heroes in my eyes. They have nothing, but my utmost respect. I challenge you whoever reads this just visit the site. What do you have to lose? I guarantee it's good for the soul. These people want nothing, but to feel supported by the American people. Bad mouthing the mission or their Commander In Chief is not a constructive way to do that... here's another site that is worth looking at

The people you meet...

Peter wanted me to post about my experience when I went to the post office to send a package to our Soldier. I was standing in a very long line, trying to juggle my purse, the custom forms and the box which weighed about 27 lbs. There was an older gentleman standing behind me wearing a Vietnam Vet hat who offered to hold the box for me. He noticed that the address was an APO and inquired if I was sending stuff to my brother. I told him that the person was not my blood brother but brother by heart. I told him about Soldier's Angels and the work they do. I also thanked him for his service. He patted me on my head like I was a lil girl and said that was the nicest thing anyone has said to him in a long time. We kept talking as we stood in the slowest moving line ever!! I commented that I wondered how much it would cost to send the box because it was so heavy. My turn came up next and i jokingly said "48 dollars? do you know how much stuff i can buy with $48?". The gentleman ended up being at the cashier right next to me and turned to my cashier and said "i'l like to pay $20 toward the shipping please". I told him I was kidding and that I couldn't allow him to pay. He then said "lil lady, please let me do this and tell your soldier i said "Quartermasters Lead The Way". Hell, I couldn't say no then. As we were leaving he said "thank you for supporting our soldiers". I almost cried right there in the lobby of the post office!!! Least to say, this put a smile on my face, hope it put one on yours too

The liberals don't know what the hell they want.

I'm surprised the liberals don't spin themselves into the ground with all the different positions they take. Let me get this straight the liberals claim it's the average American Joe that is fighting and dying in Iraq. The average American just doesn't have a chance. The economy is so crappy the poor schlub has to join. There's no way that patriotism falls into the equation. Yet on the other hand they don't want recruiters on college campuses. I don't get it. They say the rich and powerful are not helping with the war effort, but they don't want "rich" college kids to be influenced by "pied piper" recruiters. Something doesn't add up here. Oh, but wait this the looney liberal way of thinking just like 2+2=5.

The hazards of the chat room.

I decided to go into a political chat room the other night. It was a room called "rebuilding Iraq". It must have been a full moon because the freaks were out that night. The topics were bouncing around from Cindy Sheehan to "Bush is a chimp." I truly feel sorry for that lady. First her son is killed by the terrorists and now she's basically being used by anti-war to try hurt President Bush politically. Are these people so blinded with "hate for Bush" that they can't realize that they are giving "aid and comfort" to the terrorist. It's just like in Vietnam. The North Vietnamese and Viet Cong were getting decimated and they still kept coming. The best they could come up with was the Tet offensive. They were eventually beat back and sustained heavy losses. A NVA general years later were surprised that after their failure the Americans and South Vietnamese didn't mop up and finish them off. He admitted that a small push by the Americans would have finished them. But because of Conkrite's stupid observation that the NVA was winning we went back to the Paris talks instead of counter-attacking. It's just like in Iraq the "terrorists" don't have unlimited resources, they are even losing support around the Muslim world. The terrorist are losing even though the liberal media doesn't want to portray it that way. They aren't making friends by blowing up innocent Iraqis especially children. The recruitment statistic the media doesn't site is the Iraqis. Men are signing up even after a police or army post is attacked. They are willing to fight for their country. The liberals will only be right to use the Vietnam analogy if we pull out. The death and destruction will pale in comparison to what the communist did to the Vietnamese. Now isn't the time back out of Iraq.

God has blessed me with many things and there is one that is a watershed for all the rest. Thank God we didn't have the same liberal media and "anti-war" protestors during World War II. Sacrifice is something that is woven into the history of this great country. If they used troop casualties as a basis for fighting on against the Axis powers I wouldn't be here blogging. America suffered 400,000 deaths during that conflict. Did the people of that era waver and lose faith? We are living proof of their resolve. Unfortunately their are some today that don't have that backbone. If they used their logic for getting out of Iraq it would be Roosevelt's fault for getting all those soldiers killed. Hell, Roosevelt was provoking the Germans and Japanese with his meddling. The Germans and Japanese were poor countries after all. They were just trying to provide for their people. Who really cared about those Poles and Chinese that were brutalized by their occupation. It' s none of our business. Pearl Harbor, just an overeaction by the Japanese. They didn't invade the mainland after all. Roosevelt cutoff oil and steel shipments to the Japanese. The emperor obviously didn't have a choice. Roosevelt pushed the Japanese into war. If we would just try to understand the Germans and Japanese. Maybe we could just come to an accommodation and just let them have all the land they want? As long as they don't attack us again. Well, the overwhelming majority agreed to defeat these countries no matter the cost. And cost it did. There wasn't an American who wasn't touched by the affects of this war. Over 1.2 million Americans were either killed or wounded. If there ever was a reason to sue for peace I'd say that would be a good reason to do it. As for me and my family, we thank those brave people for not backing down in the face of true adversity. For because my father and my wife's grandfather joined the US Army because of the kindness the American GI's showed the Filipinos. That is how my family came to this great country. Otherwise I'd be in the Philippines probably in a rice patty speaking Japanese. If somebody asked me today if all that misery and death was worth it? I'd say yes.

Thank god my daughter has her mother's good looks.!!

I checked out an episode of "overthere" and had to change it. The show is nothing but the liberals in Hollywood attempt at hurting the war effort in Iraq. The sad thing is that the troops over there do hear all this negativity from anti- america left. The facts are that we have already won militarily it's the war of wills that is being waged now. If we don't succeed in Iraq the 1,800 deaths that have occurred will truly be meaningless. Osama incorrectly learned in Somalia that if America lost some soldiers we would cut and run. The whole middle east will truly be thrown into darkness if we cut and run. A new "dark age" will befall the people on that side of the world. We will also be in greater danger from the Muslim extremists. A couple weeks back Time magazine wasted a front cover and lead story on a stupid suicide bomber. Who gives a shit about what these 7th century backward ass piece of human debris really thinks? Would the media in WorldWarII want to understand the Nazis or Imperial Japanese? Why doesn't the liberal media ask these idiots "Is it right to blow up innocent Muslim children?" How come the incredulous righteous left isn't up and arms for all these poor innocent Iraqis being blown up? Where the hell are all the "human shields" that helped protect Saddam in the beginning of the war? There doesn't seem to be any in Iraq right now that are trying to stop the terrorists. I guess it's only ok to be a "human shield" for a murderous dictator like Saddam.

More pictures from the Support America Rally. My beautiful family in front of the art displays. Me and a guy from ProtestWarrior. He brought a funny ass sign. (above). More patriotic americans at the rally (left).
I know that I'm not the only that shouts at the t.v. It was funny, last night my wife got pissed at me. She wanted me to scratch her head and I bent over and started scratching. Right at that moment a crazy liberal came on tv. Well, my instincts kicked in and I yelled (accidentally) in her ear. It just drives me nuts when I hear these America hating people speak. I've tried to tone it down, but can't seem to control it. ill I just saw Rosie O'dumbell on tv. She's just damn f-ugly inside and out.

I live in the land of loonies. I usually don't go to political rallies, but the bile coming from the Left is just, too much. Our wonderful Attorney General Lockyer, commissioned this twisted person to put up so-called art in the lobby of the Atty Gen office. The mural was a picture of the Stars and Stripes being flushed down the toilet. On the side of the painting it states "thanks to Mr Bush". Censorship is something I don't take lightly, but using taxpayer money for this trash is just wrong. While I would support taking this display down, my family and I weren't there for that. We wanted to support America and the troops overseas protecting our freedom. The event started at 3:30 pm, we didn't get there until 6:45 pm. There were still people around the "support America" displays. It was a very positive event. A couple of kids sang the Star Spangled Banner. The damn counter-protesters wouldn't even shut up to sing the National Anthem. All they could do was shout insults. My boys even noticed the hate on their faces. They asked me "Dad, why are they so angry?" To tell you the truth I truly don't understand these misguided fools.

We went to a Move America Forward rally in Sacramento on 07/28/05.
