Medal of Honor

Petty Officer Robert R. Ingram


Citation:

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.

Just heard the term "Sequesteria" on Rush's show. He was using it as a "tease", so I haven't heard what he has to say on it. But it sounds like an excellent word to describe the reaction to these supposedly "Draconian" cuts, that if all were enacted would still leave the US government spending more than they did last year. Brutal! /sarc

"Big Sis is Watching!"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Not that it's creepy or anything!

There's No Escaping the Obamas

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

You know how you sometimes have a dream where you are being relentlessly pursued? Some nameless dread is after you, dogging your heels, through hallways and doorways and across fields and meadows, and when you've fallen and are just about to be overtaken, you wake up? That dread has a name. It is Michelle Obama.

I watched the Oscars last night, the Academy Awards, as we used to say. Is is unusual in itself. I doubt that I have sat down to watch the awards in at least two decades, maybe more. (Gone With the Wind was best picture which year exactly??) Anyway, it was a slow night, so I figured I'd watch it just to take the temperature of the culture and my waning knowledge of it.

And for those of you who watched it, you know where this is going. Out of the blue, without warning, the biggest award of the night, best picture, and there is Jack Nicholson to present it. Now, Jack's a big deal and been around a long time, so no big surprise there! And then he introduces, via video, FLOTUS Michelle Obama to announce the winner.

My first thought was, "OMG! Is there no sporting event or television show that POTUS and FLOTUS will not insert themselves?" It's bad enough that Superbowl Sunday has to be tarnished with an annual sit down with the president, the day of the game. When did this start? I don't remember either Bush or Clinton or any president being asked his opinion of anything on Superbowl Sunday. Yes, there's a lot of pre-game hours to fill with the proverbial interview with the quarterback's grandmother, but, when did it get political? I mean it was not unusual for a president to give a congratulatory phone call after the game, but otherwise, it wasn't his day. It was a day about the game.

Likewise, last night, Hollywood of all people should know that movies are escapism. Their stock and trade is to divert people from thinking about life how it is and getting them to stop thinking for a while. So, on a night where glamor and celebrity reign, here is a politician's wife crashing the party. (I don't care if she was invited, IMHO she was out of place.) The Oscars are to get you thinking about the movies. The movie I heard mentioned most in connection with Michelle's appearance was a comparison to Big Brother in "1984".

I'm told that when Michelle's shining face appeared, there were audible groans from the press box backstage. I can believe it. I was groaning myself. Barry and Michelle are the most overexposed First Couple ever. Jackie O was on TV...occasionally. Never to extent of our current FLOTUS.

And it's not just a liberal thing. There were libs on stage all night. Even their queen, Barbra Streisand showed up, as did Hanoi Jane Fonda. But, they were entertainers first and liberals second. They'd earned a spot on the stage.

I even say that at the risk of some snot nosed, brain dead race-baiter coming up and saying, "Well then, it must be because she's black!" No, it's not because of her race, or her looks, or anything like that. It's because she and her husband are ubiquitous. There's just no getting away from them. If Barry could have started the Daytona 500 without getting booed, he probably would have been there, too!

There's an old show business adage, Mr. and Mrs. Obama, that says, 'always leave them wanting more'. In the immortal words of Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks, how can we miss you when you won't go away?

If I can channel my inner Siskel and Ebert: Two thumbs down, Mrs. O.

Specialist Fourth Class Frank A. Herda


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. Sp4c. Herda (then Pfc.) distinguished himself while serving as a grenadier with Company A. Company A was part of a battalion-size night defensive perimeter when a large enemy force initiated an attack on the friendly units. While other enemy elements provided diversionary fire and indirect weapons fire to the west, a sapper force of approximately 30 men armed with hand grenades and small charges attacked Company A's perimeter from the east. As the sappers were making a last, violent assault, 5 of them charged the position defended by Sp4c. Herda and 2 comrades, 1 of whom was wounded and lay helpless in the bottom of the foxhole. Sp4c. Herda fired at the aggressors until they were within 10 feet of his position and 1 of their grenades landed in the foxhole. He fired 1 last round from his grenade launcher, hitting 1 of the enemy soldiers in the head, and then, with no concern for his safety, Sp4c. Herda immediately covered the blast of the grenade with his body. The explosion wounded him grievously, but his selfless action prevented his 2 comrades from being seriously injured or killed and enabled the remaining defender to kill the other sappers. By his gallantry at the risk of his life in the highest traditions of the military service, Sp4c. Herda has reflected great credit on himself, his unit, and the U.S. Army.


Sp4c. Herda: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

You know what else has "more food energy than fresh, whole milk"? Milk with sugar in it. "Food energy" was just another way of saying "calories". Associating it with "fresh, whole milk" has a wholesome, nurturing sound to it, doesn't it? Can you imagine anyone trying to market food like that today? "Hey, Moms! You make it with milk, but it's got WAY more calories than that!"

Danica Patrick Takes Pole at Daytona

Really a challenge to write headlines about this that don't sound dirty

Danica in one of her racing racy outfits

Danica Patrick is making history as the first woman to take the pole position at this coming weekend's Daytona 500 race.

She became the first woman to win the pole position for the Daytona 500 — and a Sprint Cup event — on Sunday when the rookie posted a lap of 196.434 mph.

"Pride. I'm proud of all the hard work that goes into making a pole car," Patrick said. "I'm happy for them (the team). It was a fast Chevy. ... If you're anywhere but the front row, it's hard to see on race day. ... This just speaks volumes about Stewart-Haas Racing. I thought we were going to be 1-2-3 for a while."

The previous best starting position for a female in the Daytona 500 was 18th by Janet Guthrie.

Danica is quoted as saying,
“I was brought up to be the fastest driver, not the fastest girl.”

Go get 'em Danica!

Update: Danica finished 8th at Daytona, the highest finish for a woman at the Daytona 500.

Low Information Voters (Democrat) and the "102 Yr. Old Lady Who Had to Wait Six Hours to Vote"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Desiline Victor, surrounded by the "racist" poll workers seeking to suppress her vote /sarc

Valentine's Day has come and gone. That means, it's the middle of February. But, something happened last November in North Miami that still has the knickers of liberals and Democrats in a knot. It seems as if those Wascally Wepublicans held a gun to the head of a 102 year old lady, Desiline Victor, and forced her to wait in line "six hours" to vote.

And this, the low information voter reasons that it just has to be one of those examples of "voter suppression" on behalf of the Republicans, because a) everyone I know says so, and b) didn't all the Republicans waiting in that line have to wait just as long?

(Wait! Don't think "B"! "B" makes our head hurt!)

Here's the story, in case one of your liberal friends hasn't berated you about it yet. According to the New York Times:
...she stood in line for three hours at her local library in North Miami, before a poll worker advised her to return later when lines would be shorter and she could get assistance in her native Haitian Creole language, which she did.

Well, three hours isn't six, but, that's too long to have to wait! I agree. But, before you blame those Wascally Wepublicans again, just who is in charge of allocating polling places and hiring poll workers and budgeting for election day turn out? In Miami, I believe it is the Miami-Dade County board of Elections, headed by Supervisor of Elections, Penelope "Penny" Townsley, who I believe is a registered Democrat.

In exactly none of the conversations I hear about how Republicans are "suppressing" the vote with long lines in heavily Democrat districts, have I ever heard a discussion of which party controlled the local county board of elections, or to which party that state's Secretary of State might belong?

Do I want an old lady to have to stand in line for hours to vote? Of course not! But, exactly how brain dead does one have to be to jump from the fact that one little old lady sat out in the sun for hours, to the conclusion that all Republicans want to suppress the vote by making octogenarians and their elders stand out in the sun in order to vote?

Using Occam's razor (look it up, libs!), can we attribute this snafu to poor planning by a Democrat controlled board of elections and a higher than expected turnout, or both? Must every anecdote be turned into a conspiracy with the Left?

To recap, it was not on election day, but the first day of eight days of early voting, in a district whose board of elections is headed by a Democrat. Hardly a conspiracy of voter suppression. Hardly an example of Republican hard heartedness, but somehow, it has transmogrified into a highly charged, emotional talking point, like most liberals, impervious to logic, reason or facts.

Ms. Victor was recently invited to attend President Obama's SOTU show.

Sex in Advertising: Ladies! A Little Help Please?

Let me preface this post by saying that given a fairly good eye for composition, and a certain way with words, I toyed briefly with the idea of going into advertising at one time. And I still enjoy seeing what makes a good ad work, how they're put together, and so forth, but this one has me a bit stumped. I'm not even sure I have its scent.

I was reading my dead tree paper this AM when I came across this picture, which I have cropped to hide the product. Can you at first glance even tell what they are trying to sell?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Now, aside from the man having two heads (BTW, is this how all you ladies see us?), the man is sipping through straws, with both heads, from a fruity drink, in which he is joined by a woman obviously attracted to him. My first question is, is the attraction of the deodorant, body spray, etc., sufficient to overcome the fact that he is brandishing a drink better suited for a gay bar* or a retirement cruise where you no longer give a darn what people drink? Oh, and the fact that he also has two heads, one of which is, quite literally, an animal?

Another ad features a different scent, represented by a hawk.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Is the ad designed to be a joke, parodying the "manliness" or "animal attraction" promised by purveyors of other such products? And if it is a joke, to whom is it aimed? The man, or the woman?

Not being a lady, much less a woman, I cannot see the attraction in making out with someone who could be gently nibbling on one ear while ripping the flesh from the other! And if I may ask a second question, where would they even put the buttons on his shirt??** Would there be a bib over the space between their necks that would button on both sides?? Inquiring minds want to know! Where can one even buy a shirt like that? And what kind of discussion must go on between heads as to not only which tie to wear, but, should they match???

Now the part of the ad I do understand is aimed at the male: Smell like this if you want to attract this sort of woman...
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

That comes across loud and clear. The rest? Not so much! So, if you have any insight to the thought process of the female mind (always welcome!), or the inspiration (or perspiration) behind this ad, please let us know. And finally, does it work?

Gents, would you be more or less inclined to try this product? Ladies, would you be more or less inclined to buy this for your significant other?



*Yes. I know it's a horrible stereotype. Also, feel free to give us your insight as to whether you would be more attracted to another male, or inclined to use this product to attract one, because of this ad?

**Upon closer examination of the second ad, with the bow ties, there do indeed seem to be one set of buttons in line with each collar. Upon further contemplation, would dry cleaning become a problem if you wanted one collar starched and the other no starch? Would a dry cleaner have the equipment to iron a two collared shirt?? Would this part of the ad be off putting to dry cleaners???

The claim that "1.7 million prohibited people have been prevented from buying a gun" what they really mean is that "1.7 million people have been initially denied buying a gun." Remember the five times that the late Sen. Ted Kennedy missed flights because his name was on the "no fly" list? This method of counting would be the equivalent of saying that the "no fly" list stopped five flights by terrorists. Sen. Kennedy may have been kept off those flights, but he still flew on later planes.
