About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

The marginalization of our military...


Today I got my copy of the local fishwrap. On Sundays it includes a copy of Parade Magazine, much like many major newspapers across the nation. This week Parade is doing their annual report on what people earn, I guess it's always amusing to compare salaries with other folk. Especially if you find out you make a doublebutt ton more than those with more formal education/training (just a personal preference on my own part).

This is the first year I couldn't find any military member listed. None. Zip. Oh-row. Nada.

Maybe they feel the military isn't too representative of mainstream America, okay. But if that reasoning is used, why would they list an aerobics instructor in Wisconsin, a trading-card illustrator in Pennsylvania, a family-med resident in Ohio or a petsitter/dog walker in Missouri?

Hell, even Barbie gets listed and I don't know many folk that have much in common with her!

IMHO we're seeing a greater shunting to the side of our military by the MSM. Why is this? I dunno, but the first thing that pops into my head is that most (not all) members of the armed forces are politically conservative and those who have been over in Iraq & Afghanistan mostly support our presence there. Not too good when you're trying to sell the idea of an oppressed military forced against their wishes to implement an illegal war/occupation.

So if their voices aren't heard the contradictions of beliefs pushed by the MSM go unchallenged.

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there, does it make a sound? If a sailor in Hawaii shouts, "The media is biased and full of shit!" and no one hears him, did he really say anything?

As I said, it's the first thing in my mind. Might not be the reason, hell maybe it's all coincidence.

After all, who wouldn't want to know what a paint blender in Wisconsin makes vice an infantryman from the same state?
