A Call To Remember History

I've been off here over 3 years as I've re-started my life after returning from 16 months in Iraq.  I returned to a country in turmoil, a move and other personal challenges and victories (and another move coming!), but over the last few years I've seen the nation grow worse, losing hope, losing courage, losing even the ability to see through obvious lies, as the left takes us into darker and darker places with each unconstitutional mandate.  Another 9-11 comes and goes with more terror in the world, and I felt compelled to dust off the old blog and let loose a rant as the media ignores the fundamental causes of the violence against us.

Anyone even thinking of blaming someone other than the muslims for the violence needs to watch this. Everyone needs to watch this:

The video exposes the lies of the school system and media. Dr. Warner illustrates 1400 years of islamic expansionism and 548 battles on maps, showing dots that rapidly grow and spread over a short time, expanding the Islamic empire, and he goes over the numbers killed, and the brutality... The crusades were a reaction to it all.  It's 45 minutes, but every minute is eye-opening (there is no "Golden Age" of islam where everyone lived in peace) and I cannot encourage you enough to watch it and be educated about the facts (and not just swallow the lies the media and schools push).  Watch it now.  Come back to this later.

The muslim attacks on US embassies resulting in our flags being torn down and burned and an ambassador and diplomats murdered are acts of war committed by those to whom this administration has funneled billions of our tax-dollars!  The same radical islamic expansionists the civilized world has been oppressed by for over 1400 years!  Instead of responding with force, cutting off aid or diplomatic ties, or even just strong words of condemnation, Mrs. Clinton reiterates an apology issued earlier today by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo--now deleted --which said: "We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims."

How much more pathetic can our leaders be?  The last night of the DNC, as a tribute to the troops, they displayed Russian ships on the big screen. Freudian slip showing their true colors, or honest mistake?

The pattern of subtle and not-so-subtle anti-American behavior by the left stretches back a long time, undermining our freedoms, making us weak and divided.  This emasculation of America must not be allowed to continue unabated lest all remaining greatness we have be lost to the ages, to be buried in a re-written history, chipping away our freedoms and stripping our achievements of their honor and glory.  It can all be replaced with mindless obsequious obedience to the elites of the left (as has been done in other leftist countries) inside of a generation or two through manipulation of the education system if nothing is done soon to stop it.  Let us not just remember the attacks on 11 September of 2001, but let us remember 11 September of 1683 and use it to find courage:

Though we too are besieged and face discouraging odds, we must continue to fight the darkness in thought, in word, and deed.  Jesus said, “If the world hates you, be aware that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. However, because you do not belong to the world, but I chose you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you. Remember what I told you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they obeyed my word, they will obey yours too. But they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me. John 15:18-21.
“The one who hates me hates my Father too.” John 15:23
“I have told you all these things so that you will not fall away. They will put you out of the synagogue, yet a time is coming when the one who kills you will think he is offering service to God. They will do these things because they have not known the Father or me…” John 16:1-3

He was speaking to his disciples about those who would persecute them, but the same applies today to us facing the leftists and the followers of the “prophet” who preached hate, rape, murder, assassination, plunder, lying, breaking treaties, etc. As much as we are able, we are to live at peace with others- but are we able to live at peace with unchecked evil as it rapes, murders, and destroys freedom?  By allowing the evil to continue unopposed, we are tolerating it, and encouraging it.  We must make a stand somewhere.

Hopefully it won't be so long between updates.  Stay strong.

Letter to Americans- Wake Up! Obama Intelligence Appointee is BAD NEWS!

Another letter sent in- I hope people continue waking up! I sent this in the WND, and am hoping it will get readers thinking!


We see it at the lower levels of government, and at the highest- the trampling of our rights. Herb in Clearwater is just one of millions of Americans who is fighting to lift the boot of the oppressors from underneath so he can just live his life without unlawful government interference with his rights! Obama has raised the stakes, appointing Chas Freeman, Former U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, lobyist, and defender of the Chinese actions in Tiananmen.

"the truly unforgivable mistake of the Chinese authorities was the failure to intervene on a timely basis to nip the demonstrations in the bud, rather than -- as would have been both wise and efficacious -- to intervene with force when all other measures had failed to restore domestic tranquility to Beijing and other major urban centers in China."

According to this new appointee, the unforgivable mistake was not using deadly force to kill somewhere between 241 and 2,600 protestors in crack-downs, but rather not squashing the demonstrations earlier!

America, please wake up to what is being done to you before it is too late!

We have seen tax-cheats and lobyists appointed after he promised "hope and change" and we have only grumbled about it. Appointing this man to be in charge of any Intelligence organization in the United States of America is more of the same abuse! A man in Florida faces fines for displaying the Constitution. What does our great nation face as a whole? This man thought the Chinese were too soft for allowing a protest to happen in the first place! Write angry and bitter letters such as mine! Show your contempt for the abuses your so-called representatives heap upon you. Rally, citizens, while you still have the right- before too many people like this are given control over your lives!

Very Respectfully,

Letter published on World Net Daily! Free Speech!

Full Story:

His story really struck a chord with me, and I really wanted to put corrupt politicians in their place. I'm sick of rights continuosly getting trampled on and nobody speaking I wrote an angry letter. I had no idea I'd get top-notch media exposure over it! Letter follows:


Greetings from Iraq. As a Florida native, and veteran who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic, I find it insulting that you would limit Herb Quintero's free speech with regards to the beautiful mural he had painted to spruce up his building. Also insulting are your fines and subsequent threats to fine the man for displaying the Constitution that guarantees his protection from this very sort of tyranny. I learned of his plight from reading the story on and at and must say I am very disappointed.

You have no right to override the Constitution and the principals for which so many men and women have fought and died to uphold. YOU are in violation of the supreme law of the land, which supersedes some trivial contrary (and therefore illegal) code, and should immediately withdraw your fines and retract your flawed and invalid laws. As government representatives, you have a solemn duty to protect the people you are entrusted to represent, not oppress them. By enacting and then selectively enforcing such oppressive laws that violate the Constitution, you spit in the face of every veteran who has ever served to uphold the Constitution! Yes, I am this worked up over a painting of some fish; the rights in the Constitution are not something that should even be lightly infringed and tolerated! The founding fathers must be rolling in their graves over the affront to freedom you have committed in your persecution of this man who is merely attempting to live an American Dream by exercising his right to free speech- an attempt, it must be noted, that would increase commerce- which in turn would bring more tax dollars to the city should he succeed in his endeavors!

As a fellow American, who dearly values his rights and freedoms, I sincerely urge on you to cease and desist with your harassment of Herb Quintero; it would save the city money in the long run, and save yourselves further embarrassment and public outrage. Furthermore, I cannot imagine citizens willingly re-electing officials who would trod so heavily upon their fundamental and inalienable rights, so I urge you to refund this man's money and publicly declare your apology to him, and the citizens, at once.

Very Respectfully,

SCARY Hidden Healthcare Agenda That Effects YOU!!! burried in stimulus porkage


Essentially, under the stimulus bill, the government will take complete control over the medical system and all treatment options, penalize those who don't want to submit, and mandates that people accept conditions rather than trying to treat them.

Key excerpts:

"The bill’s health rules will affect “every individual in the United States” (445, 454, 479). Your medical treatments will be tracked electronically by a federal system. Having electronic medical records at your fingertips, easily transferred to a hospital, is beneficial. It will help avoid duplicate tests and errors."

"But the bill goes further. One new bureaucracy, the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, will monitor treatments to make sure your doctor is doing what the federal government deems appropriate and cost effective. The goal is to reduce costs and “guide” your doctor’s decisions (442, 446)."

"Hospitals and doctors that are not “meaningful users” of the new system will face penalties. “Meaningful user” isn’t defined in the bill."

" Daschle’s book explained, is to slow the development and use of new medications and technologies because they are driving up costs. He praises Europeans for being more willing to accept “hopeless diagnoses” and “forgo experimental treatments,” and he chastises Americans for expecting too much from the health-care system."

" Daschle says health-care reform “will not be pain free.” Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them. That means the elderly will bear the brunt."

"Medicare now pays for treatments deemed safe and effective. The stimulus bill would change that and apply a cost- effectiveness standard set by the Federal Council"

" On Friday, President Obama called it “inexcusable and irresponsible” for senators to delay passing the stimulus bill."

Wow. This IS truly frightening, and appalling! Here I was ranting about all the pork in the bill, like the $9 Billion for the broadband internet program... When is enough enough? Thank you, no. I do not want anyone tinkering with my healthcare or medication unless they are my doctor, and that's bad enough when it needs done! I certainly don't want the government screwing with it, throttling the amount of care I or any other citizen receives, or telling us "too bad" when there might be an alternative. When does it eventually become a political tool used to give substandard treatment to the opposition? Paranoid? Hardly. It's a nightmare as it is, but the potential for even more abuse is astronomical!

How dare they try to force this on the people through another media blitz of fear mongering? So much for hope and change! He's trying to make anyone who intelligently disagrees with him seem like a bad American!

17 states...scratch that... upwards of 27 have already drafted legislation to declare sovereignty, citing the 9th and 10th amendments, and calling on the federal government to cease and desist with the mandates. I wonder if any will actually pass. There's just so much "federal money" tied to everything. One can hope states will assert their rights, in order to protect the rights of the citizens

HR1- Fear You Can Believe In

I haven't posted in a while (has it been so long?). 14 months down. I don't think I'll be staying the full two years. There are a number of reasons, but draw your own conclusions why. Maybe I'll go into details someday... if we all aren't too busy at home.

I've just reviewed a small part of the bloated "Stimulus Package" on It's right there under HR1 for all to read, but it's so incredibly thick with pork that there is no way anyone could ever read the whole thing, much less the hundreds of amendments. The "Hope and Change" has turned into a message of fear that “unless this package is passed, there will be a catastrophe.” The catastrophe, if it comes, will be spurred on by the very sort of proposals we find in this bill.

Obama wants to create 244,000 or so government jobs. People just hear “create jobs” and think it’s wonderful. The problem with that is, government jobs increase the burden on taxpayers. I have had "educated" people argue, "but government employees pay taxes too." A government employee pays taxes, but they are still costing taxpayers money because they are not taxed at 100% for obvious reasons. IF they pay taxes (unlike some members of Congress), then they are paying between 20% and 30%. Where do you think the rest of the money comes from? That's right. You! You are forced to pay other people's salary. When the burden is necessary, such as for funding the military, or other worthwhile programs we benefit from, we gladly pay our taxes (or at least we should). However, how does creating 244,000 or more government jobs help stimulate the economy and help reduce our debt? It doesn't. This is why people have been arguing for a smaller government for years. A smaller government is less of a burden, allowing people to get out of debt, and not dig deeper. By increasing government jobs and taking away from the private sector, and increasing taxes to cover the expense, you decrease the number of those paying taxes whose salaries are not entirely covered by tax dollars. Private salaries are fueled by commerce, so if the industry fails because of mismanagement, or because it was not something people wanted to buy into, the majority of the population is no worse off. However, by forcing citizens to invest into failed private enterprises (nationalizing), you increase the tax burden on them, and take it away from others.

Another argument for smaller federal government comes again in light of the federal government getting involved in areas best left to private business (Other than creating jobs in the above example). Let industries rise and fall as they may- that is the price of free enterprise. Bailing out and rewarding failure brought on by corruption increases the burden on the taxpayer. The government attempting to be more than simply government does that as well. Consider the $9 BILLION dollars proposed for increased broadband internet access. If people want faster internet, let the industry and the customers pay for it. If you pay for your own faster internet already, you will see even less money as your taxes increase to pay for programs the government was not designed to play a role in.

To deceive everyone, you will get a $500 or $1,000 tax credit. Other credits can be had, but these credits mean less money is going to pay for all of the multitude of programs your tax dollars funded in the bill. You could spend an entire day just wading through the individual headings, and not ever make it to the text. This sort of complexity in legislation was argued against by our forefathers. If and when the government creates legislation, it should be straight-forward, and “transparent,” to use the popular term. This bill is anything but transparent. The cost that most people are not made aware of, is that for every $1 brought in in taxes, this bill spends $4. The long-term costs will be exponential considering there is no plan for next year’s budget, much less to pay for these expenses- so we will continue to dig at a rate of 4 times worse than we already were.

As gargantuan as this pit that is HR1 is, it pales in comparison to the long term costs of continuing to “avert a catastrophe” by making the situation worse. In digging this pit, we are borrowing from not just ourselves, but piling a huge burden (that only increases with time) onto the backs of future generations, and heading down a path that will lead to the destruction of America, and destabilize the world as we know it, leading to war, famine, plague, and death. Continuing to rob from citizens to inflate government control, which results in ever growing burdens on the citizenry, is tyranny, plain and simple. A government that prints more money to pay itself is not a self-contained system; the livelihood of the populace must be tapped to support it. You will become a slave to this ever-growing-pit if this sort of “stimulus” plan is enacted.

11 Months in Iraq. A year and change to go?

I've been deployed 11 months now. That's 11 months of walking a mile to work. 11 months of the tiny shoebox of a room. 11 months of putting up with hearing the news tell everyone how awful things are here. I'm sick of it... and I'm ready for another year (with a vacation home first!!!). The biggest disappointment is feeling betrayed by the American people, but you can read about that anywhere. You'll be experiencing your own betrayal over the next 4 to 8 years... no, for now, I want to set the record straight.
I don't write here much anymore because I've been busy. 12 hour days makes you not want to sit down in front of the computer to relive some of the BS, but some things need said.
11 months ago, I wondered what I was getting myself into. We were getting mortared countless times a night- I've had them land a block away. Talk about an earth-shaking event.... Well, after the surge, that pretty much tapered off. I still walk to work and hear some machine gun fire off in the distance, and there are still the occasional booms, but things have been getting MUCH better, and it's nowhere near as bad as it was! I get told the same thing first-hand from all over Iraq from people who have been here multiple times, or spent a few years here! Yes, bad things still happen in a war-zone, but if we leave prematurely, things will fall apart and get much worse.
We are here to help build a secure and stable country. It's not something that can happen overnight, or even in a few years, and it's not something cheaply bought either- especially with a patient and determined religious insurgency. Who was elected changes nothing- a timetable is STILL A BAD IDEA! It is handing the enemy the plan, and giving them more power by allowing them to claim victory. Every time someone in America proposes our retreat, they cheer- because to them, for so few to overpower the resolve of, and drive off the greatest nation- that fuels their religious ferver and drives up their recruiting!

Most people don't care though, they would rather spit on the sacrifices of those who would lay down their lives for their freedom. No??? They did that at the polls. Why? They were told to. They were sheep for the media. Never doing their own research, or looking deeper than what looked and felt good. "Hope" and "Change" are such pretty words... Well, I HOPE the sheep CHANGE into sheepdogs before too long, or the freedoms they took for granted will vanish as they have done every moment in history when something similar occured when the wolf was cheerfully given free reign.
The price of proclaiming defeat in Iraq is great, but the price of defeat we pay at home in America will be greater if all is lost.
Benjamin Franklin said we had a republic if we could keep it... Can we? I pray so. Time will tell.
I hope I will be granted the opportunity to continue to contribute to the mission here, because I know I am part of something meaningful, and though my absentee vote did not count, being here counts for something- I've seen the faces of smiling children- boys and girls who will hopefully get to grow up knowing the same freedoms you and I did. The people here lived under tyrants for so long... I hope that with their newfound freedom they will not take it for granted like so many American people have come to do... but they must be given a chance. We will leave when they are ready to stand on their own, but that means more sharing, training, time, and patience.


The elect recently stated he would overturn President Bush's decision on embryonic stem cell research. People cheered. Are they in that much of a hurry to kill babies for research? There are OTHER SOURCES OF STEM CELLS! Does the media tell you this? No. Do your own digging... The elect wants to put in an express lane at the abortion clinics, so perfectly healthy late-term babies can be killed- some even at the stage where they would survive outside the mother's womb with a little help! All babies need help to survive! How sick and LOST can you be to choose someone like that to lead you? Yet I'VE been called a baby-killer (for wearing a uniform) before...

I have a feeling I will have plenty to rant about in the coming months and years...

A Response to Lindsay Lohan's Blog

Everyone for Obama cannot explain the logic when presented with facts. Obama is a liar or an idiot (though I am inclined to believe he's a liar) about being unaware for 20 years that his most trusted advisor and pastor was a raving, racist, lunatic. We need neither a liar or idiot in the White House, and out of millions of Americans, could certainly do better than a cocaine junkie (go ahead and bash Bush all you want, it simply doesn't counter my argument about what we need, and just makes you look dumb). He's stated he wants a national police force as well funded and equipped as the US military (look to history on where this leads), he is for late term abortions (where the baby could live outside the womb with help, which all babies need anyway), and for not providing medical care to babies that survive the horrific procedure, etc. I have outlined all this and more on MY blog, but because I'm not a recovering junkie and burned out pop-star, I doubt I've got as many followers and hangers-on as you, Lindsay Lohan... but I HAVE studied Political Science. I HAVE served my country and AM currently deployed in Iraq where I HAVE personally seen the difference the surge made! I AM a former Sr. International Security Specialist and I at least know what on earth I am talking about and can back things up when I say that the "feel-good" things Obama has spoken about would lead our nation to destruction in the long-run (oh, it sounds real good in the short-term, to the short-sighted like you). What are you and what did you do with your life so far? Star in a Herbie movie and do drugs... Now you're acting like some political expert? I feel sorry that you, like so many others who have been misled, but all you are doing is using your celebrity status to illogically push more people down the wrong road. I lament that you chose to squander your fame and fortune on drugs and misleading people. I'm only 5 years and change older than you, so I know there's still time for you to buckle down and get some real-world experience, but unfortunately, you're probably not eligible to join the military because of your drug background which makes you untrustworthy to hold a clearance for your total lack of discipline and regard for the law! If you wouldn't even be trusted to serve our country, then why do people pay attention to you when you write garbage on your blog? I'll tell you the only reason- because you are a celebrity in the media spotlight, not because anything you say has any true merit. That is the ONLY reason anyone listens to you... and it's an empty reason, void of any real meaning, and I'm sorry- your only followers, are hangers-on who don't really care. They don't care what the truth is because they're blinded by hero-worship because to them, your fame and fortune is something they admire over the truth... so hopefully, you'll do a little digging, find the truth, develop some humility, and publicly renounce all the nonsense you've been spouting. It's a long-shot, but I have to hope there's something worth salvaging in every misled human being- some redeeming quality. I have to hope that once you see the truth, you'll realize you were wrong, and admit it.

Obama has never done anything other than vote present! How does that make him more qualified than McCain, much less than Palin who Obama gets compared to, who has at least executive experience? Obama has been running for president longer than he's been in Congress... How dare he give a back-handed compliment by saying Palin is an "up and coming politician" like she is beneath him. How sexist can one get? She already reached the highest office in her state! Yet, she gets mocked- while Obama has been worshiped by the likes of you.

As far as attacking Palin's Christianity. If she's a Christian, she LOVES everyone, but cannot condone actions that the Bible says are sinful. That doesn't make her a homophobe. You need wake up, step down from your pop-culture cloud, and ground yourself in reality before you go slinging mud about an issue (or person) you know little about. She is entitled to her freedom of religion, so don't persecute her for it and become the very monster you THINK you see in others (maybe that's a little guilt manifesting itself in you, and rather than deal with it, you project the blame onto others). Palin is actually the most "anti-corruption" politician our nation has seen in a while, and that's what we need in Washington! There are 3 types of people in this world: Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs. Choose carefully who you want to be when you grow up. For an explanation, visit the link at the top or bottom of my blog and here:
