This is pretty cool!!!

The Military: The average age of the military man is 19 years. He is a short haired,tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as halfman, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country. He never really cared much for work and he would rather wax his own car than wash his father's; but he has never collected unemployment either.

He's a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student, pursued some form of sport activities, drives a ten year old jalopy, and has a steady girlfriend that either broke up with him when he left, or swears to be waiting when he returns from half a world away. He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing and 155mm howitzer. He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was at home because he is working or fighting from before dawn to well after dusk. He has trouble spelling, thus letter writing is a pain for him, but he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and reassemble it in less time in the dark. He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and use either one effectively if he must. He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional. He can march until he is told to stop or stop until he is told to march.

He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation, but he is not without spirit or individual dignity. He is self-sufficient. He has two sets of fatigues: he washes one and wears the other. He keeps his canteens full and his feet dry. He sometimes forgets to brush his teeth, but never to clean his rifle. He can cook his own meals, mend his own clothes, and fix his own hurts. If you're thirsty, he'll share his water with you; if you are hungry, his food. He'll even split his ammunition with you in the midst of battle when you run low. He has learned to use his hands like weapons and weapons like they were his hands. He can save your life - or take it, because that is his job. He will often do twice the work of a civilian, draw half the pay and still find ironic humor in it all. He has seen more suffering and death then he should have in his short lifetime.

He has stood atop mountains of dead bodies, and helped to create them. He has wept in public and in private, for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed. He feels every note of the National Anthem vibrate through his body while at rigid attention, while tempering the burning desire to 'square-away' those around him who haven't bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking. In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home, he defends their right to be disrespectful. Just as did his Father, Grandfather, and Great-grandfather, he is paying the price for our freedom. Beardless or not, he is not a boy. He is the American Fighting Man that has kept this country free for over 200 years.

He has asked nothing in return, except our friendship and understanding. Remember him, always, for he has earned our respect and admiration with his blood. And now we even have women over there in danger, doing their part in this tradition of going to War when our nation calls us to do so. As you go to bed tonight, remember this shot.. A short lull, a little shade
and a picture of loved ones in their helmets .

Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Coastguardsman, Marine or Airman, prayer is the very best one!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Whooo hoooo time to pig out!! All the "joecool" you can eat! Oops I mean Turkey!! Ha what a dork my brother is! Seriously though, Happy Thanksgiving to every one! What a great time of the year! I look forward to the start of the holiday season, thanksgiving now, CHRISTMAS next month, my birthday next month, awesome baby!!

As I think about this holiday and what it stands for. Traditionally celebrated as a time of thanksgiving to God for His blessings to us. And I thank Him for the most important blessing and that is the blood His Son shed that I might be saved from my sins! That truly is the greatest blessing and should be always be at the top of my thanksgiving list, and it ought to be daily!

I'm thankful of the wife that God has provided me with! What a wonderful thing it is to know that I have someone to fight my battles with! Someone that loves me for me! She knows me better than anyone, she sees me at my best and at my worst! And still there with me after 17 years! Wow what a woman!!

I'm thankful for 2 loving parents, Mom and a Dad, not 2 mom's or 2 dad's! Who saw fit to discipline me and teach me wrong from right! Who taught me that life is not fair. And you get out of life what you put into it! What great parents!

I'm also thankful for my blogging friends! You guys are awesome! Always helping when I ask for it, reading my drivel, and writing great stuff that makes me laugh and makes me mad! I couldn't be associated with a better group of bloggers!!

Last but not least by any stetch! I am thankful for our Armed Forces! What a great bunch of MEN and WOMEN! I capitalized that for a reason! I hate it when people say, "we're sending our kids out to fight this war" These people aren't kids, or children like I heard them called today on the radio! These are fighting Men and Women who are the best at what they do! The best military in the world! I get to go back and forth to my grocery store, work, gym, Mom's house, families homes without even thinking that it might not be safe! Think about that for a minute! We don't even blink when we go somewhere in this great Country of ours! We just get in the car, plane, train, boat and go. Awesome! All because they keep us safe and do those things that others would not to keep us that way! Thanks to all of them!!

Have a great Thanksgiving and we will see ya on the flip side of the weekend!!

Oh yeah, and if you haven't read the post below this one, you gotta do it! It is worth your while!

Attentions shoppers there has been a flashing on isle 7

Did I get your attention yet? HA! I have this big RV Industry show to attend the week after Thanksgiving. On a side note, if any of my blogging buddies and family are going to be in Louisville KY give send me an e-mail, we can try and hook up. I will be there from the 26th of Nov to the 30th of Nov. Now where was I..... oh yeah, so I have to atttend this show see, and at this particular show you need to dress up as in suit coat and dress shirt and slacks. Well it was time for Sssasquatch here to get some new dress clothes anyway. So to get the dress slacks we went to the Mall in Oregon since there is no sales tax there, gotta love that. So I'm in the Casual Male XL store, and you gotta know its good stuff since George Forman is on every wall and endorsing all the clothes right?! Anyways, we find some good looking ones that fit and I go in the dressing room to change. As I pull off my pants..... oh wait that's too much info... I change into the first pair and show them off to the wife outside in the store, Yeah Yeah, those look good she says, then I go back and put on the next pair, I come out of the dressing room and start discussing if we should get a pair of kakhis while we are at it. My wife says yeah sure, and then in the middle of the store I get a brain fart and start undoing the dress slacks I just tried on! and to top it all off I let them fall to the floor! So there I am in the middle of the mall, in the middle of Casual Male XL in my fruit of the looms, my wife is just looking at me like I had lost my mind, and moron me, I'm like, What? What! My wife starts to stutter, look around just hoping no one is looking at us and going Steve, Steve, STEVE! What are you doing?! Then it hits me like a mack truck, I'm standing in the middle of the mall, in the middle of a store, with my pants around my ankles! Man, you never seen anyone move so fast!! I pulled those pants up and dove for the dressing room! Unbeleivable! I think I am just getting old! My poor wife!

Happy Veterens Day

First off I want to extend a Happy Veterens day to all those serving and those that have served in the military. Grandpa in WWII and Wendell in Korea, Tiffany in Afghanistan, and any more of you out there! You guys are true heroes! Thanks for all that you do and did!! My cousin Tara, Tiffany's sister sent me this Tony Blair quote, I thought it was perfect for this day. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America he said: "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

1: Jesus Christ
2: The American G.I.

One died for your soul and the other for your freedom."

Thank a Vet today!!

The Day after next

I was supposed to post this yesterday but, I was way behind at work so here it is today.

Well, it looks like the mexicans have won. Amnesty for everyone! Lets just open up those borders and shut down the customs offices and let the gates open! Come one, Come all. No need to pay taxes, no need to pay for the children you have here, no need to pay for the education for your children, no need to pay for your social security, just come here and squat in our Country!

Lets raise the Minimum wage while we are at it, that way we kill all small businesses that can't afford to raise their employees wages! Nope, no need for personal responsibility to take care of yourself. Make it the responsibility of the employer to take care of your every want and need. If you need more money and the job you have doesn't pay you enough, No Problem, Okey Dokey, just look to your elected official to be the Teet you can suck on. They will raise your minimum wage, take away your bosses tax cut that got you hired in the first place, just so you can have what you want now! Well, for a little bit, until he lays you off because he can't raise his prices enough to keep you employed.

But Sssteve you sound a little bitter! Your not just a whislting dixie my friend! I can not believe my fellow countrymen. I heard on the radio today that 1/3 of the "evanjelicals" SP? voted democrat? Are you kidding me? How can you call yourself a Christian and vote for people that want to kill innocent babies! I'm sorry but that is how I see it. You may think that is too simple but right now I really don't care! If you voted for a democrat, your a stupid moron!

Yippeeee I got trolls, so I got my shots today!

First off before I Pwn these two trolls of mine, I wanted to let everyone know that my cuz Tiffany that is in Afghanistan is coming home for Thanksgiving leave!! I thought that was pretty cool. Of course she will be heading back after the holiday. Now on to the business at hand.....

Do any of you remember that some of us had teams in a baseball fantasy league. Well, I did one weekly roundup for our league and it totally stunk! It was pitiful, I just do not know how to do those cool things others do with their blog. But, I digress, The title of my post that week (Yes RT, I did post once that week!!) was the name of our league. It had the word conspiracy in it. Well, some moron who goes by the name "enlighten" proceeded to go into this diatribe about how the real conspiracy was that those fags that flew the planes into the towers were not really muslims but CIA agents! You have got to be kidding me?!! Dude, grow a stinking brain will ya?!! Your funny.

The next idiot, who goes by "realist" ooooooohh ooooooh! I'm so smart I call myself Realist! So listen to me, I'm soo smart. Well he starts out with a bang:

"Try not to be such a hypocritical dxxxxxbag"
I had to x out the letters since this blog is read by my mom, Hi Mom, Love Ya! ahem, anyways. So excately what is a hypocritical d-bag? A hypocrite is someone who says they are one thing but their actions show another. So this syphlis filled colastome bag said that sometimes I call myself a d-bag but then I don't act like one? WHAT?! Hey you puss infected polyp, I dare you to go back through these archives and find one place where I called myself a d-bag?! One time!? Never! Next:

"Whatever Kerry's intentions"
So it doesn't matter that he just told our finest, and bravest that they are all stupid!!

"his comment would have to go quite a ways to compare with Bush's heartless statement that in the history books all the death and destruction in this Iraq debacle (including American troops killed) will amount to "just a comma". And, this was not some senator from Massachusetts but the commander-in-chief that said this. Where in the hell was the outrage from the Republicans and the military over this? Nothing but silence and crickets chirping. Enjoy wallowing in your hypocrisy"
Okay, I tire of this, FM and Fiar, I don't know how you guys go through these moronic idiot and fisk them comment by comment. Now you listen you morphidited, gaseous, piece of something that I just scrapped off my shoe, this blog is about what I think, and my opinions. And another thing, Kerry has a history of bashing our troops, and this time it kind of bit him on the posterior! And if you can't see that he has this history then you my fine pedofile, are an idiot! Now get off my phone! beside the only thing that I ever wallow in is Bacon and plenty of it! And don't you try and collect any money from me Fiar, you trademark, copyright monger!
