Quote du jour

This is my new book. It’ll be out on October 27, “Give me Liberty or Give me Obamacare.” I couldn’t decide on the title. I was thinking different ones, “Fifty Shades of Stupid: The Barack Obama Story.” I thought of “Conservatives are from Mars, Liberals are From Uranus,” “An Illustrated Guide to Impeachment,” but it’ll be “Give Me Liberty or Give me Obamacare.”

Vulcan is a notoriously hot planet. "Live long and prosper" is really a mistranslation of the original, which in Vulcan states: "Live long and perspire".

...when (will) the consequences of widespread government dependence and inept, no-accountability federal bureaucracy be clear to everyone? We’ve already seen it all over the federal government -- the VA, ATF, Health and Human Services, U.S. Secret Service, the NSA, the IRS, the U.S. Postal Service, NOAA, DHS, and now the Office of Personnel Management . . .

I asked John about doing a caricature of Bernie Sanders in the grave digging scene from Hamlet, with Bernie substituting for the Prince of Denmark, and Karl Marx subbing as poor Yorick's head. I believe that John has exceeded my expectations!

(And yes, for all you Shakespearean purists, I know the line is not "I knew him well", but, "I knew him, Horatio")

Medal of Honor

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Petty Officer Robert R. Ingram


For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as Corpsman with Company C, First Battalion, Seventh Marines against elements of a North Vietnam Aggressor (NVA) battalion in Quang Ngai Province Republic of Vietnam on 28 March 1966. Petty Officer Ingram accompanied the point platoon as it aggressively dispatched an outpost of an NVA battalion. The momentum of the attack rolled off a ridge line down a tree covered slope to a small paddy and a village beyond. Suddenly, the village tree line exploded with an intense hail of automatic rifle fire from approximately 100 North Vietnamese regulars. In mere moments, the platoon ranks were decimated. Oblivious to the danger, Petty Officer Ingram crawled across the bullet spattered terrain to reach a downed Marine. As he administered aid, a bullet went through the palm of his hand. Calls for "CORPSMAN" echoed across the ridge. Bleeding, he edged across the fire swept landscape, collecting ammunition from the dead and administering aid to the wounded. Receiving two more wounds before realizing the third wound was life-threatening, he looked for a way off the race of the ridge, but again he heard the call for corpsman and again, he resolutely answered. Though severely wounded three times, he rendered aid to those incapable until he finally reached the right flank of the platoon. While dressing the head wound of another corpsman, he sustained his fourth bullet wound. From sixteen hundred hours until just prior to sunset, Petty Officer Ingram pushed, pulled, cajoled, and doctored his Marines. Enduring the pain from his many wounds and disregarding the probability of his demise, Petty Officer Ingram's intrepid actions saved many lives that day. By his indomitable fighting spirit, daring initiative, and unfaltering dedications to duty, Petty Officer Ingram reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

Petty Officer Ingram: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Hat tip Home of Heroes

There are seventy nine living MoH recipients today. Their names and their stories should not be forgotten. My mission is to honor one of those heroes here each week, and salute them for their courage and sacrifice. In the words of John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors; the men it remembers.”

Hollywood Went to War

Number fourteen in our series Hollywood Went to War, is not the 'droid you're looking for, it's Sir Alec Guinness!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Guinness put his theater career on hold in 1939 to join the Royal Navy. He landed some 200 British soldiers on the beaches of Sicily during the July 1943 invasion of Italy, and went on to ferry arms to partisan fighters in Yugoslavia. During one such voyage in 1944, Guinness’s boat was caught in a violent hurricane off the coast of Italy, and he only narrowly managed to guide the ship into a harbor before it was thrown onto a rocky shoreline and damaged beyond repair. Guinness would later put his wartime experience to use portraying military officers in such films as “The Bridge on the River Kwai” and “Tunes of Glory,” and even played Adolf Hitler in 1973’s “Hitler: The Last Ten Days.”

Guinness served in the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve in World War II, serving first as a seaman in 1941 and being commissioned the following year. He commanded a landing craft taking part in the invasion of Sicily and Elba...
...During the war, he was granted leave to appear in the Broadway production of Terence Rattigan's play Flare Path, about the RAF Bomber Command.

Sir Alec, we thank you for your service. Rest in peace.
