One of the best run downs on Iraq I've seen
Of course it's no suprise it's from the USS Clueless, a great read though and full of common sense. The best is at the end about us not wanting to kill anyone. The goal of the military isnt killing people, but carrying out our jobs to persuade the enemy to stop trying to kill us. I think that most of them over there really want to go home and forget about the Americans.
Damned if you do, damned if you dont...
I love the way they talk about so many blacks being on the 'front' lines, and how it's so bad because of racists policies that make more blacks die than whites. Now that's proven false and it's because of racism that blacks dont make up a porportional number of the ones to get killed. We all know how silly this is anyway. Of any place that I can definately say isnt racist, it's the military. These Liberals cant understand that where there is free choice, there isnt necessarily going to be the same proportions as society. I'm probably going to get slammed, but contrary to what Michael Moore thinks, blacks arent big warriors. Years of conditioning from liberals have made them (a majority) take an easier route, and not being a seal or pilot is definately an easier route. I know because I took it myself. White people tend to be crazier and fill in the Seals where most other black people say screw that crap.
Front-line troops disproportionately white, not black Numbers refute long-held belief
That was odd
Last Wednesday or so I posted the story below using the blog this thingie and thought everything was kosher. I blogged that right before I went home so didnt look at the page until the next day and found that it still hadnt posted. So I thought that blogger was crapping out and started doing stupid posts just to see if it was back up... you know like .... "Hello?" lol. It still wasnt up so I went around to blogspot pages and all of them had been updated which really freaked me out. So I tried everything I knew from deleting posts to changing my whole template and about everything else with no results. It was really pissing me off, but since I dont pay anything for the service knew I really had no complaint. My blog life flashed before my eyes and I realized that as much as I feel like just calling it quits, I would miss it terribly. There were a couple of things I really wanted to blog about while locked out, but now I cant remember. I know it's cheezy, but like the ole Poision song..."Dont know what you've got.... till it's gone". ;-)
A blood emergency
I dont believe this crap for one minute. They say that most areas dont have enough blood for 2 days. If you take a second and see how much blood we sell to other countries each year, you'd find how bogus these efforts are. I said it before and I'll reinterate it, I will never give blood because they are using it as a money making venture. Only when they certify that my blood will not be sold and blood sales/exports are at zero will I give blood. Not only that, but I wonder how much a pint of blood is running for in a hospital now? Maybe I'm just tired of donating crap to good causes and then having it turned around and sold.
