My wife and I have the great honor of adopting a couple of soldiers, thru http://www.soldiersangels.org/heroes/index.php. 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 http://www.moveamericaforward.com/

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
