The Return of Ten Buck Friday

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Week Eight of a Nine Week Mission, to Seek new life for the Senate, to Boldly send Harry Reid empty handed back to Searchlight!

Those of us who are paying attention have seen positive trends on the majority, if not all, of our Ten Buck Friday candidates. In the words of that noted political analyst, Han Solo: "Don't get cocky!"

Focusing on the Senate races, is it worth ten bucks a week to you (a paperback book and a biscotti?) to eliminate Reid's control and give the Senate responsible leadership again?


With that in mind, this week we look to the Senate seat in New Hampshire. Can you contribute just $10 to Senate candidate Scott Brown ?

Real Clear Politics has Brown down by 1.6 (up 3 points from a week ago)  but rates the race as a toss up. 


You can contribute to Scott Brown here. Good luck and Godspeed, Scott!


(If you mark your contribution as "Ten Buck Friday", they'll see if the blogosphere can give them a little bump.)

Medal of Honor

Major Patrick Henry Brady


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty, Maj. Brady distinguished himself while serving in the Republic of Vietnam commanding a UH-1H ambulance helicopter, volunteered to rescue wounded men from a site in enemy held territory which was reported to be heavily defended and to be blanketed by fog. To reach the site he descended through heavy fog and smoke and hovered slowly along a valley trail, turning his ship sideward to blow away the fog with the backwash from his rotor blades. Despite the unchallenged, close-range enemy fire, he found the dangerously small site, where he successfully landed and evacuated 2 badly wounded South Vietnamese soldiers. He was then called to another area completely covered by dense fog where American casualties lay only 50 meters from the enemy. Two aircraft had previously been shot down and others had made unsuccessful attempts to reach this site earlier in the day. With unmatched skill and extraordinary courage, Maj. Brady made 4 flights to this embattled landing zone and successfully rescued all the wounded. On his third mission of the day Maj. Brady once again landed at a site surrounded by the enemy. The friendly ground force, pinned down by enemy fire, had been unable to reach and secure the landing zone. Although his aircraft had been badly damaged and his controls partially shot away during his initial entry into this area, he returned minutes later and rescued the remaining injured. Shortly thereafter, obtaining a replacement aircraft, Maj. Brady was requested to land in an enemy minefield where a platoon of American soldiers was trapped. A mine detonated near his helicopter, wounding 2 crewmembers and damaging his ship. In spite of this, he managed to fly 6 severely injured patients to medical aid. Throughout that day Maj. Brady utilized 3 helicopters to evacuate a total of 51 seriously wounded men, many of whom would have perished without prompt medical treatment. Maj. Brady's bravery was in the highest traditions of the military service and reflects great credit upon himself and the U.S. Army.

Maj. Brady: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Hat tip Home of Heroes

There are fewer than a hundred 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.”

Happy Daniel Boone's Birthday!


And a remembrance to always "print the legend".

Obama's Chickens...Redux

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

New and improved, with an extra "chicken"!

Quote du jour

The most basic problem with "I don't believe in labels" talk is that it is incandescently stupid. "Label" is another word for "word." Everything we associate with civilization, decency, and progress depends on labels. If we cannot label something poisonous, people will die. Similarly, labeling policies, or politicians or commentators, with ideological or party identifiers helps make clear their underlying assumptions and values.

Women of PETA XLI

To the delight of some and the chagrin of others, we continue with yet one more tribute to those lovely lasses who would bare their assets to further the cause of PETA.

Because the world needs more naked, nearly naked and vegetable clad vegetarians!

Editor's Note: When I first started out to post "Women of PETA", it was not designed as a series. I figured I could find a half a dozen decent pictures of semi-naked celebrities online and that would be that. Next topic.

Multiply that half a dozen by 41 and that's how far it's brought us today.
