We Eat Chickens For Lunch

leave a comment »


Except for the ending of the VietNam war and the massive non-recruiting efforts of the military during in 1975, I would have gone into the military service after high school along with my best friend who did go. Military bloggers keep us abreast of what is going on in the war of Islamoterrorism in the Middle East. Their updates are so important that’s why I’ve posted the links to some of the best. They are right in the middle of the fire where we can’t be, not holed up in a Baghdad hotel like the MSM reporters. Bloggers like Frank J of IMAO, Derek Brigham of Freedom Dogs, and Captain Ed of Captain’s Quarters are my heroes and have come up with a way to combat the liberal chickenhawks.

We’ve seen the names here at CQ in the comments section — the term “chickenhawk” has appeared more than once, and others in the blogosphere have assigned us to a unit called the 101st Fighting Keyboardists. I’ve thought about that for a while, wondering what exactly about both epithets appear so
fascinating to left-wing bloggers. As a middle-aged grandfather supporting a chronically ill wife, I have few options for doing my part in the war on terror.

After 9/11, I spent weeks looking into different options for service while trying to balance my family obligations. Our family found out just three weeks after the attack that the Little Admiral would soon join us, and the implications of terrorism and war weighed heavily on my mind. I resolved to use the skills I had — writing — to make the case for fighting a forward
strategy against terrorists.

Eventually that led me to this blog, but in the interim I argued for a continued muscular offensive against the Islamofascists that had murdered thousands of our fellow Americans.

Is that the same as military service? Of course not. The men and women of the military do the real fighting, and we salute them and support them by supporting their mission. Milbloggers give us the best of both worlds by not only defending our nation and fighting (and beating) terrorists around the globe, but also by reporting on the fight first hand. There is honor in engaging in public debate for policies which we believe are in our nation’s best interest as well. For many of us, we know that without presenting our arguments in the national forum, many in the media and the public will quickly overpower the debate and threaten the policies we feel give us the best long-term opportunity to defeat terrorism and the states that fund and shelter them.

Many on the left disagree, however, and often they provide challenging arguments and valuable perspectives on policy and the manner in which it gets implemented. However, many more do little but make ad hominem attacks on those with whom they disagree. They spend a great deal of effort labeling people rather than providing rational arguments on policy, and even the labels they select don’t provide much more than amusement.

Please support our fine men and women in the military by keeping up on what is actually going on in the Middle East by reading the Chickenhawks’ blogs.

Rush Limbaugh: Not Guilty

leave a comment »

It’s all over but the MSM’s crying. Rush Limbaugh’s wins two year battle against the state by pleading not guilty, reimbursing for the cost of the investigation, and charges being dropped after 18 months with continued treatment under his doctor that prescribed the medication.

This is the United States National Anthem.

Contact UBO (Urban Box Office – Latin Recording Label) at feedback@ubo.com in English and let them know how disgusting the new version is.

Nuestro Himno

Verse 1
Oh say can you see, a la luz de la aurora/Lo que tanto aclamamos la noche al caer? Sus estrellas, sus franjas flotaban ayer/En el fiero combate en senal de victoria,/Fulgor de lucha, al paso de la libertada,/Por la noche decian: “Se va defendiendo!”
Coro: Oh, decid! Despliega aun su hermosura estrellada,/Sobre tierra de libres, la bandera sagrada?
Chant:
It’s time to make a difference the kids, men and the women/Let’s stand for our beliefs, let’s stand for our vision/What about the children los ninos como P-Star
These kids have no parents, cause all of these mean laws.
See this can’t happen, not only about the Latins.
Asians, blacks and whites and all they do is adding
more and more, let’s not start a war
with all these hard workers,
they can’t help where they were born.
Verse 2
Sus estrellas, sus franjas, la libertad, somos iguales
Somos hermanos, es nuestro himno.
En el fiero combate en senal de victoria,/Fulgor de lucha, al paso de la libertada,/Por la noche decian: “Se va defendiendo!”
Coro: Oh, decid! Despliega aun su hermosura estrellada,/Sobre tierra de libres, la bandera sagrada?

And Madam, How Would You Like That Bone?

A victory for canine civil rights, the Florida Senate voted Friday to make it possible for certain restaurants to welcome dogs to outdoor dining areas.The bill, which still needs approval from the House, allows cities to decide whether to opt out of portions of the state law banning dogs from restaurants. Other states, such as Washington, California, and Nevada allow dogs (and cats) to eat in outside restaurants.

Doggy bag manufacturers need to read the writing on the wall… decline in future orders forseen.
