Quote du jour

Some of us are less than surprised that the world would find the best representation of feminine beauty, strength, and indomitable resolve in Israel. After my visit, I concluded that the country had three things in abundance: beautiful women, M-16 rifles, and beautiful women carrying M-16 rifles.

November 22, 1963 - In Remembrance

From the archives (updated) and a day late!:

Today marks the 54th. anniversary of the passing of a great man. One who left his mark on his country and his culture. One who is still quoted to this day. On November 22, 1963, the world little noted his passing in the shock and outpouring of grief over the assassination of JFK. That man was Clive Staple Lewis…oddly enough, like JFK, ”Jack” to his friends.

C. S. Lewis, author of The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity and The Chronicles of Narnia, was a contemporary and friend of J. R. R. Tolkien. He was also an atheist who came to Christianity, in his own words, “kicking and screaming”, who became one of its strongest apologists.

You must picture me alone in that room in Magdalen, night after night, feeling, whenever my mind lifted even for a second from my work, the steady, unrelenting approach of Him whom I so earnestly desired not to meet. That which I greatly feared had at last come upon me. In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God, and knelt and prayed: perhaps, that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.
-Surprised by Joy

His books have been translated into dozens of languages and sold millions of copies over the years. Anthony Hopkins portrayed him in the movie Shadowlands (1993), the story of his romance with American poet Joy Gresham, who died of cancer a mere handful of years after they met.

His life was rich and varied. His sorrows deep and vast. His legacy is enduring.

In our remembrance of those who passed this day, one might do well to remember what can be accomplished with just a pair of Jacks!

Happy Thanksgiving from Mike and John!

Corporal Hiroshi H. Miyamura


Cpl. Miyamura, a member of Company H, distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action against the enemy. On the night of 24 April, Company H was occupying a defensive position when the enemy fanatically attacked threatening to overrun the position. 
Cpl. Miyamura, a machinegun squad leader, aware of the imminent danger to his men unhesitatingly jumped from his shelter wielding his bayonet in close hand-to-hand combat killing approximately 10 of the enemy. Returning to his position, he administered first aid to the wounded and directed their evacuation. As another savage assault hit the line, he manned his machinegun and delivered withering fire until his ammunition was expended. He ordered the squad to withdraw while he stayed behind to render the gun inoperative. He then bayoneted his way through infiltrated enemy soldiers to a second gun emplacement and assisted in its operation. 
When the intensity of the attack necessitated the withdrawal of the company Cpl. Miyamura ordered his men to fall back while he remained to cover their movement. He killed more than 50 of the enemy before his ammunition was depleted and he was severely wounded. He maintained his magnificent stand despite his painful wounds, continuing to repel the attack until his position was overrun. When last seen he was fighting ferociously against an overwhelming number of enemy soldiers. 
Cpl. Miyamura's indomitable heroism and consummate devotion to duty reflect the utmost glory on himself and uphold the illustrious traditions on the military service.

Cpl. Miyamura: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Sex in Advertising

For all you connoisseurs of advertising...

Feigned Hysteria Over Keystone Pipeline Leak

A lot of people are hyperventilating over a recent oil spill in the original Keystone pipeline, authorized under the George W. Bush administration and completed in June 2010, under our Temp Agency President's term. In what I presume to be the first major leak in over seven years, 210,000 gallons of oil was spilled. For comparison, that's about six DOT-111 rail cars.

For all the concerns about spillage into waterways, may I remind you that many rail tracks run parallel to rivers in this country? And contrary to pipelines, which actually have a smaller carbon footprint transporting the oil, trains are given to derailment and are prone to catch fire, sending voluminous clouds of carbon laden smoke into the atmosphere.

I have video from one such derailment below. Unless you are willing to give up all oil based transportation, products made from and transported by petroleum (Hint: everything), then pipelines are the safest, most environmentally friendly means of transporting oil.

And did we happen to mention that no one was killed as a result of the Keystone pipeline leak? Ah, yes, then there's that! The biggest downside is that billionaire Warren Buffet, big Obama contributor, will see less traffic on his railroad, and the price of Bakken crude will drop five to ten dollars a barrel.

Wait! Did I say that was the downside? We report, you decide!

Your Schadenfreude Cleveland Brown/NFL Report

Funny. I saw a Tweet about the empty NFL stadiums and I said to myself, "Yeah. The NFL is a thing!" I'd totally forgotten about them. I will admit that I thought about them briefly, once on Sunday morning, when I woke up in the fifties. My cable was broadcasting every channel in black and white, and I thought that would be lousy if I had to watch a football game in black and white on my high tech TV. After that...zilch!

But for those of you still keeping track, Cleveland has taken sole possession of the worst record in the NFL at 0 and 10, edging out the 1 and 9 Niners for the bottom spot. I still believe the Niners have it in them to blow that lead, because I think they're playing again this week.

It'll Either Be a Photo Finish or an Oil Painting!

Democrat Talking Points Explained

Okay, not ALL of them, because that would break the Internet, but the ones flying around lately in today's sexually charged atmosphere. I've been hearing it a lot, or its variation about Bill Clinton's sexual transgressions:
"Bill Clinton's case was 'fully litigated'." - Clinton flunkie, or 
"Bill was "fully investigated and held accountable".- HRC

"Fully litigated". "Fully investigated". Buzz words based on a partial truth. Yes, Bill's perjury was investigated and to a certain extent he was held accountable, but that was for perjury in a federal court, certainly not the rape of Juanita Broaddrick.

It's just a little more of the verbal sleight of hand the Clintons are famous for when they don't want to give you a straight answer, (on those rare occasions when they do not feign amnesia). Or depending on what your meaning of the word "is" is.

You Can Never Be Too Rich, Too Thin, or Have Too Much Ammunition

You may have noticed the badge on the sidebar for, because, you can never be too rich, too thin or have too much ammunition! They have started a refer a friend program:

"Get a $10 credit when a friend buys $200+ worth of ammo. Best of all, they'll save $15 on their first purchase as well!"

If you need to stock up on ammunition (and you probably should! ) take a look over there. No obligation. Check out their prices. If their deals are the best around, take advantage of them. And with all the money you save, as that guy in the commercial says, "You should probably buy me dinner!"

Good hunting. And let's be careful out there!

Corporal Duane E. Dewey


For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a gunner in a machinegun platoon of Company E, in action against enemy aggressor forces. 
When an enemy grenade landed close to his position while he and his assistant gunner were receiving medical attention for their wounds during a fierce night attack by numerically superior hostile forces, Cpl. Dewey, although suffering intense pain, immediately pulled the corpsman to the ground and, shouting a warning to the other marines around him. bravely smothered the deadly missile with his body, personally absorbing the full force of the explosion to save his comrades from possible injury or death. 
His indomitable courage, outstanding initiative, and valiant efforts in behalf of others in the face of almost certain death reflect the highest credit upon Cpl. Dewey and enhance the finest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service.

Cpl. Dewey: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.
