Ahh The Smell Of Burnt Flesh

It has been reported by different news networks that some U.S. Soldier’s burned the body’s of 2 Taliban fighters. Don't you feel bad for them after they destroyed the Twin Towers and all the beheadings.

I forgot, the democrats and liberal media want us to play pussy foot with the terrorists and give them manicures? Ummm, no! Terrorists have no rights, they don’t fall under the Geneva Convention rules. So why does the media report this crap? Are they trying to turn the citizens of the U.S. against the soldiers? It's a war ladies and gentlemen and war isn't pretty and sometimes drastic measures should be taken to set an example!

The U.S. is just too damn worried about being politically correct!

1975 Gay sergeant challenges the Air Force

Air Force Sergeant Leonard Matlovich, a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, is given a "general" discharge by the air force after publicly declaring his homosexuality. Matlovich, who appeared in his air force uniform on the cover of Time magazine above the headline "I AM A HOMOSEXUAL," was challenging the ban against homosexuals in the U.S. military.

In 1979, after winning a much-publicized case against the air force, his discharge was upgraded to "honorable." In 1988, Matlovich died at the age of 44 of complications from AIDS. He was buried with full military honors at the Congressional Cemetery in Washington, D.C. His tombstone reads, "A gay Vietnam Veteran. When I was in the military they gave me a medal for killing two men and a discharge for loving one."

Sweet Dreams On Way To Hawaii

Another week is in the books and that means another week closer to Hawaii. I've been counting down since I renlisted back in August. So much to see and so much to do. One problem though, my family isn't on my orders as of now. The Army's EFMP program in all its wisdom put my wife into the program because she has a bad back. They are worried about her flying. Give me a break!!! I'm sure she and the kids will be over in due time but I feel bad because she is the one that will have to deal with the kids for 10 hours. Hmmmm... Maybe this isn't so bad after all. No kids for me on a 10 hour flight.

I'm mean but not that mean, I couldn't do that to my wife. Or could I?

1967 Thousands protest the war in Vietnam

In Washington, D.C. nearly 100,000 people gather to protest the American war effort in Vietnam. More than 50,000 of the protesters marched to the Pentagon to ask for an end to the conflict. The protest was the most dramatic sign of waning U.S. support for President Lyndon Johnson's war in Vietnam. Polls taken in the summer of 1967 revealed that, for the first time, American support for the war had fallen below 50 percent. When the Johnson administration announced that it would ask for a 10 percent increase in taxes to fund the war, the public's skepticism increased. The peace movement began to push harder for an end to the war--the march on Washington was the most powerful sign of their commitment to this cause. The Johnson administration responded by launching a vigorous propaganda campaign to restore public confidence in its handling of the war. The president even went so far as to call General William Westmoreland, commander of U.S. forces in Vietnam, back to the United States to address Congress and the public. The effort was somewhat successful in tempering criticisms of the war. However, the Tet Offensive of early 1968 destroyed much of the Johnson Administration's credibility concerning the Vietnam War.The protest was also important in suggesting that the domestic Cold War consensus was beginning to fracture. Many of the protesters were not simply questioning America's conduct in Vietnam, but very basis of the nation's Cold War foreign policy.

Get Your Hurricane Relief Kits Ready For Wilma




"Uh-Oh! Grab all the beer! And if there's time, the family photo albums."

Yesterday Wilma became the most intense hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. Since then the pressure has risen slightly and the winds have diminished from 175 mph to 145 mph. However, Wilma remains an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane. Wilma is still forecast to cross Florida but it might possibly clip the Yucatan Peninsula first. Some evacuations have already begun in the Florida Keys. After Florida the storm is also a possible New England threat.

One thought for the toilet is the Invasion theory: You have to start to wonder if there is any truth to this show on TV called Invasion. A hurricane hits Florida and it's used as a cover up for Alien visitors. Here comes Wilma, a major hurricane aimed right at the everglades just like in the show.

1947 The Red Scare comes to Hollywood

The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) of the U.S. Congress opens its investigation into communist infiltration of the American movie industry on October 20, 1947. Chaired by Congressman Parnell Thomas, the subsequent hearings focused on identifying political subversives among Hollywood actors and actresses, writers, and directors.Although initially opposed by a group of Hollywood heavyweights such as Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, and Gene Kelly, the hearings proceeded. A number of witnesses, including studio owners Walt Disney and Jack Warner, and movie stars Robert Taylor and Gary Cooper, gave statements decrying the communist influence in the film industry; some specifically named colleagues whom they suspected of communist affiliations or sympathies. Another group of witnesses, including writers Dalton Trumbo and Ring Lardner Jr., were less forthcoming, and loudly complained that the hearings were illegal, and that questions about their political loyalties were inappropriate. Eventually, the "Hollywood Ten," as these protesting witnesses came to be known, were found in contempt of Congress and went on to serve jail terms.The fate of the Hollywood Ten terrified many in the film industry, and when new HUAC hearings started in 1951, Hollywood quickly buckled to the committee's demands. Hundreds of performers, directors, writers, and others associated with the movies were placed on a "blacklist," effectively banned from employment. Actors such as Zero Mostel and John Garfield saw their careers in film during the 1940s and 1950s destroyed for refusing to cooperate with HUAC. Hollywood also responded by turning out a bevy of films with anticommunist themes, such as I Was a Communist for the FBI (1951), Big Jim McClain (1952), and My Son John (1952).

1987 Panic attack on wall street

In 1987, the markets were enjoying a record-setting bull run, seemingly unbothered by occasional cocaine scandals or the arrest of Ivan Boesky. However, on October 19, "panic selling" sent the Dow into an unprecedented 508-point freefall. After a day of frantic action, the markets had shed 23 percent of their total value. The staggering loss sent analysts scurrying to find a smoking gun--and they found several. Along with the usual suspects, inflation and rising interest rates, the announcement of a surprisingly steep trade deficit and news of an American attack against Iran were both blamed for Wall Street's woes. Some industry insiders looked even closer to home, speculating that the market's computerized trading system played a role in sparking the crash. The computers, however, refused to comment on the incident.

DVD OF THE WEEK - BATMAN BEGINS


Batman Begins at last delves into the dark and troubled past of the Batman legend. It is about the birth pains of a superhero, which concentrates on those pains as it does his superheroism. This movie is the grittiest and most intriguing of all classic comic book heroes and it has found new and improved life, with Christian Bale as the best Dark Knight yet. It's a new beginning for the bat and a must see. It truly must be good because even my wife thinks so!!!

Saint Madonna

**Exclusive Details From The Drudge Report**

The former Material Girl now believes "the beast is the modern world that we live in!"

"The material world. The physical world. The world of illusion, that we think is real. We live for it, we're enslaved by it. And it will ultimately be our undoing," Madonna explains in her new documentary film, I'M GOING TO TELL YOU A SECRET.

In the movie, which will premiere at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City on Tuesday, Madonna warns how people "are going to go to hell, if they don't turn from their wicked behavior."

The singer, who is also promoting the upcoming release of her new music CD, declares: "Most priests are gay."

"I refer to an entity called 'The Beast'. I feel I am describing the world that we live in right now. To me 'The Beast' is the modern world that we live in."




Do you remember how many children ran around imitating her(including weird little boys)? How many people were influenced by her lewd acts on stage? Now she is lecturing us on what's right and wrong in this world.

Is she going through a conversion, getting old or just lost her freaking mind?

My guess, would be she has just freaking lost it!

1968 John Lennon and Yoko Ono arrested for drug possession

John Lennon and Yoko Ono are arrested for drug possession at their home near Montagu Square in London, England. The arrests came at a tempestuous time for the couple. Only days earlier, an announcement was made that Ono was pregnant, creating a scandal because both Lennon and Ono were still married to other people. Her pregnancy ended in a miscarriage a few days after the arrest.
Detective Sergeant Norman Pilcher, the instigator behind the raid on Lennon and Ono, was an anti-drug zealot who would later arrest George Harrison and his wife on similar charges. Lennon, who had been tipped off by another member of the drug squad just before Pilcher and his men arrived at his home, immediately began flushing heroin down the toilet and vacuuming the floor. While Lennon was frantically trying to get rid of the evidence, the police read a warrant through a bedroom window and then broke down the front door. Drug-sniffing dogs found 200 grains of hashish, a cigarette rolling machine with traces of marijuana, and half a gram of morphine. However, the couple denied that the drugs belonged to them.
When the matter finally approached trial, Lennon pleaded guilty because he was worried that Ono would be deported. He was fined £150 and warned that another offense would bring a year in jail.

Where Were The Blues Brothers When We Needed Them This Weekend?

Over this past weekend, we had some good old fashion race riots in Toledo, Ohio. Toldedo's rioters and looters should be pretty darn proud of themselves. They probably brought more racism about then the ignorant white supremacists ever could have. They made whitey's demonstration of hate a big success.
Don't get me wrong I'm not endorsing these morons of this hate group. They should all go back in there holes where they came from, but the gangsters up in Toledo screwed it up for everyone in there community and how they are looked upon.
On a side note, I've got to ask... where were the Blues Brothers when we needed them this weekend? I'm sure they hate Ohio Nazis as much as they hate Illinois Nazis.

1931 Scarface meets his match

After a long run as the crime kingpin of Chicago's underworld, Al Capone finally landed in jail on October 17, 1931. Capone was ultimately sent away for tax evasion, a relatively minor offense for a man who oversaw an elaborate liquor bootlegging network, extensive prostitution rings, and various gambling operations. For many years, crime did pay for Capone. By 1927, he had hauled in an impressive--and tax-free--fortune worth over $100 million. Of course, with his penchant for maiming and killing the competition, Capone was just a bit more dangerous than the average entrepreneur. However, usual strong-arm tactics couldn't help him bully past the IRS. Capone was sentenced to an eleven-year prison term and was forced to pay $80,000 in fines and court fees.

The Domino Effect

Had a pretty good weekend here in good ole' North Carolina. Went and visited my mom, she was a saint and watched my children as my wife and I went out on our annual date to the movies. We went and saw Domino, not a bad flick despite the bad reviews. It has everything a man wants in a film, guns, blood, sex and lots of filthy language(even my wife enjoyed the film due to it had a humor to it) after the movie went out for a few drinks with my bud Mike and listened to a very shitty band. They were so awful I swear my ears were bleeding. This morning I went and visited my father's grave site. It's the second time I'd been there since he passed away on 20 August 2005. It's hard as hell going there... I'm not going to sound off on how I feel about him other than he was a great husband and father. It hurts too much thinking about it. OUT!!!

1859 John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry

Abolitionist John Brown leads a small group on a raid against an arsenal in Harpers Ferry, Virginia, in an attempt to incite an insurrection and destroy the institution of slavery.
Born in Connecticut in 1800 and raised in Ohio, Brown came from a staunchly Calvinist and antislavery family. He spent much of his life failing at a variety of businesses--he declared bankruptcy at age 42 and had more than 20 lawsuits filed against him. In 1837, his life changed irrevocably when he attended an abolition meeting in Cleveland, during which he was so moved that he publicly announced his dedication to destroying the institution of slavery. As early as 1848 he was formulating a plan to incite an insurrection, and he shared the idea with Frederick Douglass.
In the 1850s, Brown traveled to Kansas with five of his sons to fight against the proslavery forces in the contest over that territory. On May 21, 1856, proslavery men raided the abolitionist town of Lawrence, and Brown personally sought revenge. On May 25, Brown and his sons attacked three cabins along Pottawatomie Creek. They killed five men with broad swords and triggered a summer of guerilla warfare in the troubled territory. One of Brown's sons was killed in the fighting.
By 1857, Brown returned to the East and began raising money to carry out his vision of a mass uprising of slaves. He secured the backing of six prominent abolitionists, known as the "Secret Six," and he assembled an invasion force. His "army" grew to include 22 men, including five black men and three of Brown's sons. The group rented a Maryland farm near Harpers Ferry and prepared for the assault.
Although Brown spent years dreaming of the raid, he apparently put little thought into the specifics of its execution. He made no attempt to notify the slaves that he hoped would join him, and he had little idea what to do with the armory he planned to capture. On the night of October 16, Brown and his band overran the arsenal. Some of his men rounded up a handful of hostages, including a few slaves. Word of the raid spread, and by morning Brown and his men were surrounded. A company of U.S. marines arrived on October 17, led by Colonel Robert E. Lee and Lieutenant J. E. B. Stuart. On the morning of October 19, the soldiers overran Brown and his survivors. Ten of his men were killed, including two of his sons.
The wounded Brown was tried by the state of Virginia for treason and murder, and he was found guilty on November 2. He went to the gallows on December 2, 1859. Before his execution, he handed his guard a slip of paper that read, "I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood." It was a prophetic statement. Although the raid failed, it inflamed sectional tensions and raised the stakes for the 1860 presidential election. Brown's raid helped make any further accommodation between North and South nearly impossible and thus became an important impetus of the Civil War.
