Seriously? This is the best the MSM can do? I've never seen a bunch of characters obsessing as much over the most trivial information, outside of a Pixar movie.

Corporal Ronald E. Rosser


Citation:

Cpl. Rosser, distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry above and beyond the call of duty. While assaulting heavily fortified enemy hill positions, Company L, 38th Infantry Regiment, was stopped by fierce automatic-weapons, small-arms, artillery, and mortar fire. Cpl. Rosser, a forward observer was with the lead platoon of Company L, when it came under fire from 2 directions. 
Cpl. Rosser turned his radio over to his assistant and, disregarding the enemy fire, charged the enemy positions armed with only carbine and a grenade. At the first bunker, he silenced its occupants with a burst from his weapon. Gaining the top of the hill, he killed 2 enemy soldiers, and then went down the trench, killing 5 more as he advanced. He then hurled his grenade into a bunker and shot 2 other soldiers as they emerged. Having exhausted his ammunition, he returned through the enemy fire to obtain more ammunition and grenades and charged the hill once more. 
Calling on others to follow him, he assaulted 2 more enemy bunkers. Although those who attempted to join him became casualties, Cpl. Rosser once again exhausted his ammunition obtained a new supply, and returning to the hilltop a third time hurled grenades into the enemy positions. During this heroic action Cpl. Rosser single-handedly killed at least 13 of the enemy. After exhausting his ammunition he accompanied the withdrawing platoon, and though himself wounded, made several trips across open terrain still under enemy fire to help remove other men injured more seriously than himself. 
This outstanding soldier's courageous and selfless devotion to duty is worthy of emulation by all men. He has contributed magnificently to the high traditions of the military service.

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

Live in California? Taxes Too High? Have I Got a Deal for You!

Most of you know that I'm not a "grab your pitchfork, storm the capital" kind of guy. I see my role as mostly information and entertainment, not activism. On rare occasion, however, I do make an exception.

If you live in California, this may be for you. Recently, without a vote of the people, the California legislature decided they needed more money, so they raised the taxes on gasoline and auto registration. If the good liberals in Sacrament were honest (stop laughing!), they'd know this is a regressive tax on the poor.

Our ultra liberal Attorney General, Javier Becerra, likes to characterize the movement not as "rolling back taxes", but "taking away funding from public transportation". The AG writes the summaries of ballot initiatives.

So, if you think the state government needs to make do with less, you can find a petition to roll back this latest tax here. Download and print out the petition and mail it back by January 10th. if you're so inclined.

Your Schadenfreude NFL/Niner Report


Leave it to the hapless Niners! They can't even hold on to last place, but it's not for want of trying. Niners dropped another game Sunday, 24 -13 to the Seahawks, giving them a 1 and 10 season record. Yet the Browns managed to lose to the Bengals, 30 -16, to remain hands down losing champs at 0 and 11.

Hang in there Niners! You can do it. We know you can!

November 22, 1963 - In Remembrance

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

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


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


Citation:

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.

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!
