Quote du jour

Having lived through the shoe pounding of Nikita Khrushchev, I believe he was somewhat misinterpreted. Although at the time, I believed his intent was "we will kill you and bury you", I have come to believe that, perhaps what he actually was trying to say, is that he believed in the superiority and longevity of the Soviet Union (which was proven wrong), and he and they would "still be standing" at the funeral of the West.

If Not for Double Standards, Democrats Would Have None

The Fresh Face of the Democrat Party Redux

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The long overdue retirement of the ancient and crumbling Barbara Bouncer (D-CAlcified), got me to thinking about a piece I originally wrote in 2006 about the "new face" of the Democrat party. A few of the old souls have passed away, so I thought I'd give a quick update to the ruling class, still bellied up to the public trough.


"It has struck me odd for some time now, that the party of Rock the Vote has anything but a youthful visage (Pelosi’s botox notwithstanding!)

So here’s a short and by no means comprehensive list, in no particular order, of the Democratic leadership of the House, some Presidential wannabees and some of those wild and crazy young Senators (and their ages):"


Representative Nancy Pelosi (78) CA

Representative Steny Hoyer (79) MD

John Forbes Kerry (75 in December) MA

Senator Diane Feinstein (85) CA

Hillary Rodham Clinton (71 next month) NY

Joe Biden (76 in November) DE

Senator Charles E. Schumer (68 in November) NY

Senator Patrick Leahy (78) VT

Senator Tom Carper (71) DE

Senator Bill Nelson (75) FL

Senator Crazy Mazie Hirono (70) HI

Senator Ben Cardin (74) MD

Senator Elizabeth Warren (69) MA

Senator Dick Durbin (74 in November) IL

Senator Patty Murray (68 next month) WA

Senator Ed Markey (72) MA

Senator Debbie Stabenow (88) MI

Senator Claire McCaskill (65) MO

Senator Jon Tester (62) MT

Senator Jeanne Shaheen (71) NH

Senator Bob Menendez (64) NJ

Senator Tom Udall (70) NM

Senator Heidi Heitkamp (62) ND

Senator Sherrod Brown (65) OH

Senator Ron Wyden (69) OR

Senator Joe Manchin (71) WV

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (68) TX

Senator Bernie Sanders (77) VT

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (a spring chicken at 63 next month) RI

Plus such leading lights in Democrat politics as Jesse Jackson (78 next month)

and Al Sharpton (64 next month!)

The point of the American experiment, fueled in large part by Europeans fleeing a continent full of rigid class roles, limited opportunities, political and religious repression, was to create a country where you could be whatever you wanted to be, and your group identity didn’t matter.

Future Acceptable Supreme Court Nominee

Medal of Honor

Staff Sergeant Kenneth E. Stumpf


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. S/Sgt. Stumpf distinguished himself while serving as a squad leader of the 3d Platoon, Company C, on a search and destroy mission. As S/Sgt. Stumpf's company approached a village, it encountered a North Vietnamese rifle company occupying a well fortified bunker complex. During the initial contact, 3 men from his squad fell wounded in front of a hostile machinegun emplacement.

The enemy's heavy volume of fire prevented the unit from moving to the aid of the injured men, but S/Sgt. Stumpf left his secure position in a deep trench and ran through the barrage of incoming rounds to reach his wounded comrades. He picked up 1 of the men and carried him back to the safety of the trench. Twice more S/Sgt. Stumpf dashed forward while the enemy turned automatic weapons and machineguns upon him, yet he managed to rescue the remaining 2 wounded squad members. He then organized his squad and led an assault against several enemy bunkers from which continuously heavy fire was being received He and his squad successfully eliminated 2 of the bunker positions, but one to the front of the advancing platoon remained a serious threat.

Arming himself with extra hand grenades, S/Sgt. Stumpf ran over open ground, through a volley of fire directed at him by a determined enemy, toward the machinegun position. As he reached the bunker, he threw a hand grenade through the aperture. It was immediately returned by the occupants, forcing S/Sgt. Stumpf to take cover. Undaunted, he pulled the pins on 2 more grenades, held them for a few seconds after activation, then hurled them into the position, this time successfully destroying the emplacement. With the elimination of this key position, his unit was able to assault and overrun the enemy.

S/Sgt. Stumpf's relentless spirit of aggressiveness, intrepidity, and ultimate concern for the lives of his men, are in the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself and the U.S. Army.


S/Sgt. Stumpf: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

President Obama, while he was trying to get (Obamacare) enacted, insisted that its penalties for people who did not buy insurance did not amount to a tax. After it was enacted, his administration insisted in court that the penalties were taxes for one legal purpose and were not taxes for another - in the same case. The Supreme Court worsened the muddle when it considered the law, effectively rewriting the relevant provisions.

Captain James M. Sprayberry


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. Capt. Sprayberry, Armor, U.S. Army, distinguished himself by exceptional bravery while serving as executive officer of Company D. His company commander and a great number of the men were wounded and separated from the main body of the company. A daylight attempt to rescue them was driven back by the well entrenched enemy's heavy fire.
Capt. Sprayberry then organized and led a volunteer night patrol to eliminate the intervening enemy bunkers and to relieve the surrounded element. The patrol soon began receiving enemy machinegun fire. Capt. Sprayberry quickly moved the men to protective cover and without regard for his own safety, crawled within close range of the bunker from which the fire was coming. He silenced the machinegun with a hand grenade. Identifying several one-man enemy positions nearby, Capt. Sprayberry immediately attacked them with the rest of his grenades. He crawled back for more grenades and when two grenades were thrown at his men from a position to the front, Capt. Sprayberry, without hesitation, again exposed himself and charged the enemy-held bunker killing its occupants with a grenade. Placing two men to cover his advance, he crawled forward and neutralized three more bunkers with grenades.
Immediately thereafter, Capt. Sprayberry was surprised by an enemy soldier who charged from a concealed position. He killed the soldier with his pistol and with continuing disregard for the danger neutralized another enemy emplacement. Capt. Sprayberry then established radio contact with the isolated men, directing them toward his position. When the two elements made contact he organized his men into litter parties to evacuate the wounded. As the evacuation was nearing completion, he observed an enemy machinegun position which he silenced with a grenade.
Capt. Sprayberry returned to the rescue party, established security, and moved to friendly lines with the wounded. This rescue operation, which lasted approximately seven and a half hours, saved the lives of many of his fellow soldiers. Capt. Sprayberry personally killed twelve enemy soldiers, eliminated two machineguns, and destroyed numerous enemy bunkers.
Capt. Sprayberry's indomitable spirit and gallant action at great personal risk to his life are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the U.S. Army.


Capt. Sprayberry: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.
