An Open Letter to Jeb Bush

I got a "gimme" email today from Jeb Bush, telling me what I already knew about the country and asking for cash. I get those all the time. During the 2014 race, I'd get five or six a day just from the Republican party. But in this one, he said, and I quote, "I look forward to hearing from you.".

Literalist that I am, I sent him the following. I reproduce it here, in case the folks who were soliciting on Jeb's behalf forget to give him the message.

Dear Jeb: You look forward to hearing from me? Here it is:

Get out of the race.

The country is in deep trouble and we need someone with better conservative bona fides than you to get us out. The longer you stay in the race, the more you distract from the candidate we all need to get behind, because face it, we're all not going to get behind you. We do not need Romney 2.0.

But please feel free to support whomever our candidate eventually is.

PS I won't be contributing $25, $15, or even $5 today or ever.

Question: Was that too subtle?

Medal of Honor

Private First Class Robert E. Simanek


For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving with Company F, in action against enemy aggressor forces. While accompanying a patrol en route to occupy a combat outpost forward of friendly lines, Pfc. Simanek exhibited a high degree of courage and a resolute spirit of self-sacrifice in protecting the lives of his fellow marines. With his unit ambushed by an intense concentration of enemy mortar and small-arms fire, and suffering heavy casualties, he was forced to seek cover with the remaining members of the patrol in a nearby trench line. Determined to save his comrades when a hostile grenade was hurled into their midst, he unhesitatingly threw himself on the deadly missile absorbing the shattering violence of the exploding charge in his body and shielding his fellow marines from serious injury or death. Gravely wounded as a result of his heroic action, Pfc. Simanek, by his daring initiative and great personal valor in the face of almost certain death, served to inspire all who observed him and upheld the highest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service.

Pfc. Simanek: 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.”

Now, I would watch this one. As for the one premiering tonight, show me the income equality between its female star and every male actor, extra and grip on the set, and maybe I'll watch? Nah.

Quote du jour

It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history. And like the 50 of you, none of them were born American — they became American.
-Michelle Obama

None of them were born American? So, the fact that they were born in the colonies that would become the United States, speaking English and acclimated to and accepting of the culture they were in, makes them just like foreign immigrants?
