It is nice to see

It is nice to see when a mainstream publication finally comments on Al Gores comments that he made the other night. Thank goodness he was not the President I can not even imagine how he would have mucked things up. [<A href=”http://news.bostonherald.com/opinion/view.bg?articleid=29658″>Boston Hearld</A>]

As we approach 3 years

<P>As we approach 3 years since the events of 9/11 and some of those events become a not so distant memory my thoughts drift towards the widows and families that lost oved ones. I am sure their are thousands of stories to be shared but one of the best I have read recently revolves around a group of widows that call themselves “The Dead Wives Club” it is a refreshing story I hope you enjoy it.

<P>The FBI is on the lookout for these evil bastards if you see them call in the law. [<A href=”http://www.emergencyemail.org/terrorinfo.asp”>www.emergencyemail.org/terrorinfo.asp</A>] [<A href=”http://www.fbi.gov/”>FBI</A>]</P>

Al Gore’s ridiculous comments

<P>Why do washed up politicans have to make such asses of themselves. It is nice to see the RNC fighting back against idiotic comments like those made by Al Gore. [<A href=”http://asmallvictory.net/archives/006960.html”>A Small Victory</A>]</P>

<P><FONT face=”Comic Sans MS”>If I was Cajun I think I would have said it about the same way. 😉 Thanks Dan for the e-mail</FONT></P>
<P><FONT face=”Comic Sans MS”>Dear Senator Kerry: <BR><BR>I am Designated Letter Writer for the guys down to Daryl’s Bait Shop here in Lagniappe, Louisiana. We have been shaking our heads over your stumbling campaign. It ain’t so much we like you or your Party, but you are a fellow American, born in the U S of A, so we don’t want you to disgrace yourself. Here are 10 helpful hints we have worked up for you. (More if you want them. Let us know.) <BR><BR>1 We know you served in Nam. You’d do yourself a favor if you didn’t keep mentioning it every time someone pokes a microphone in your face. Geez, it was 35 years ago you did that for what was it, four months? Some of us Daryl’s Bait Shop guys spent more time than that on chow lines. <BR><BR>2 Get your stories straight. Admit you threw your or someone’s medals and/or ribbons over the Capitol fence in ’71, and you went touring around with Jane Fonda, and you testified falsely to atrocities by US troops. You ought to say that was all a youthful mistake. We’ve made a few. We’ll understand. <BR><BR>3 It’s OK, you can talk French to French reporters if you want to, we don’t mind. Smilin’ Jack Boudreau can speak French, and we elected him Chief of the Lagniappe Volunteer Fire Company. We’re not bigots. We call ’em as we see ’em, make up our minds. <BR><BR>4 Sen. Kerry, why aren’t you touting your good luck in snaggin, not one, but two, rich wives? Here at Daryl’s we often wonder what it would be like to have a really rich wife. We speculate just how big a bass boat we could buy, along with one of those new Dodge Hemi trucks to pull it to the crick. Smilin Jack always points out how it’s his cousins, Marvin and Dillweed who appear in those Dodge Hemi commercials but still they can’t afford one of their own. We chuckle how we could be fishin all day with nary a worry about where the money is coming from. You don’t have to cook that ketchup, do you? Come on, show the world how lucky yo! u are. W e here in the South respect achievement and don’t begrudge someone’s good fortune even if he’s a politician. <BR><BR>5 Me and Boudreau wonder why you aren’t going to the wrasslin matches to get votes? We’ve seen videotape of you on the ski slopes. You got some good moves, looks like you already know how to take a fall. All us here (except Freddie Dobbs and Herm Harrison) are great fans of wrasslin. Not that we’d vote for you just because you was one. Armen Yazoo is a wrasslin maniac, but none of us would vote for him even if he was running only for dogcatcher. So you got to tread easy on showing you’re Joe Sixpack who just happened to go to Swiss prep school and St. Paul’s School and Yale College Skull &amp; Bones. We’d see through that pose in about a minute and a half and mark you for a hypocritical windbag and general liar. You needn’t go to the trouble of hanging a black velvet Elvis oil painting in any of your living rooms. Weren’t none of us recently fell off a turnip truck. <BR><BR>6 Tell us something you’re for. We already know what you’re against. <BR><BR>7 We ain’t all that impressed with the UN and we don’t know why you keep bowing in its direction, promising you will go there first thing if you are elected President of this country. Is there anything the UN has ever done right? Didn’t they make a royal mess of that Iraq oil-for-food program, millions skimmed off just happened to land in their personal bank accounts? Seems to us they spend around 98 percent of their time passing resolutions that don’t add up to a hill of beans. <BR><BR>8 If you’re for lower gasoline prices in the morning, don’t be proposing a 50 cents a gallon tax boost on gasoline in the afternoon. Saying one thing in Shreveport and the opposite in Baton Rouge don’t inspire us with confidence with you as President. Maybe you should stay in the Senate where you got 99 other guys to share the responsibility with. <BR><BR>9 We got indoor privies, color TV, cell phones, and computers. Give us some credit for brains and understanding. We know economic conditions are good and getting better. Your telling us we’re miserable, deluded fools just won’t fly. And it gives us the eerie feeling that you’re hoping for a relapse into recession to help your electoral chances. <BR><BR>10 You have beaten all your Democratic opponents in all the primaries and caucuses held so far. Yet you seem out of touch with your party and with America. Maybe you’ve been a pol too long, been campaigning too long and you need a break before the Convention. We all think the best thing you can do is haul out your Harley, put TeRAYza on the pillion and take off for the Sturgis South Dakota Bike Rally. Meet the folks. A few of us from Daryl’s will be there. You don’t have to get tattooed. <BR><BR>Sincerely, <BR><BR>Cooter <BR><BR>(with the considerable assistance of J. Boudreau and B. Bass)</FONT><BR><FONT lang=0 style=”BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff” face=Arial color=#000000 size=3 PTSIZE=”12″ FAMILY=”SANSSERIF” BACK=”#ffffff”><BR></P></FONT>

Anti-American Comment shocks me to the core

<P>My co-workers and I are sitting in a mall food court today when a man holding his Son’s hand walks by us and says. “Son when you see Americans you need to run away and hide your sister as they will kill you”. All three of us about fell over. The man was wearing traditional Arab wear which from his clothing indicated he was from Saudi Arabia. He then turned around and made similar comments very close to us in a very large voice.</P>
<P>A equally shocked store clerk from the country we are visiting and a Filipino worker who was cleaning tables both turned and where about speechless. The store clerk was so upset that he got on his cell phone and called the police worried that the man would come and attack us. We quickly de-fused the situation by leaving the mall and proceeded back to our residence. I must say that I did take a few minutes to look under the car to make sure it did not go boom when we turned the key on.</P>
<P>I have traveled in Europe and the Middle East for 20 years and this was the first Anti-American comment I have ever heard directed at me. The man was obviously angry and what is even more depressing is that his son was no more than 4-5 years old. He clutched his Fathers leg and looked at us like we where the devil. There is a young boy that will grow up in a home that in 20 years will be blowing himself up against an American target because of his Father’s deep hatred for Americans.</P>

Watching the News over the

<P>Watching the News over the past few days has left me with a very sick feeling in my stomach. I am terribly upset at what has transpired in an Prison in IRAQ. I am very sure the Army will hold those that are responsible accountable, my emotions cry out that these individuals have betrayed the trust they where intrusted with. </P>
<P>My personal feeling is that these idiots have done significant damage&nbsp;and have opened up a&nbsp;Pandora’s box. Do they not realize that the proper treatment of prisoners as outlined by the Geneva Convention is of the highest priority. What happens when&nbsp;the next military member&nbsp;is detained. Will he&nbsp;or she be subjected to torture because of the&nbsp;alleged&nbsp;actions. I cannot express publicly what I think should happen but needless to say the UCMJ will be brought to bear on these individuals. </P>
<P>I am ashamed when the President of the United States has to go on television to express his disgust. I can guarantee you when a President is Upset shit is going to roll downhill in a big way and I am sure there will be a very public prosecution of these individuals.</P>
<P>The United States Navy and the United States Marines live by&nbsp;the motto “Honor, Courage &amp; Commitment” these ideals shape our daily actions. I think the Army will need to step back and look at their Value system. The job we have been ordered to do is one that the majority of us support. The majority of us strive to do that job with the value system that has been instilled in us. It is a very sad day to have witnessed what the world has witnessed and should be a wake up call that you do not win the hearts and minds of people by the mistreatment of prisoners.</P>
