About Me

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.

VDH on the pirates...

Piratics [Victor Davis Hanson]

Three thoughts about the pirates:

1) Piracy may or may not be a matter of American national security, but the American people will not for long stand the notion that a captive brave American ship captain risks his life to escape, while formidable American naval power either cannot or will not punish the miscreants;

2) Pompey's victories over the Cilician pirates, the Venetian clean-up of the Mediterranean sea-lanes, and the British success in stopping Caribarrean piracy were all predicated on going ashore, destroying the docks, headquarters, and homes of the pirates. To end Somali piracy, disproportionate measures against the shore should be taken—for every one pirate assault, a lethal air assault should immediately follow.

3) In academic circles the last two decades, pirates have been romanticized in a variety of
contexts—as in pirates being contrarian individualists, admirable anarchists, Marxist redistributionists, sexually ambiguous, cross-dressing, transgendered libertines, and Lotus-eater-like sensualists, rather than as murderous criminals. Who knows, maybe such esoteric theorizing has filtered down to the U.S. State Department.

4) The Obamists better be careful in their serial apologetics, "Bush did it" throat-clearing, and caving to European, Russia, Turkish, etc. agendas. Slowly, but clearly we are establishing a new atmosphere in which the old unpredictability, military preparedness, and deterrence will be lost, replaced by a touchy-feely sort of seminar discussion, laced with atonement, reaction. And then the two-bit pirates who boast "We are not afraid of the Americans" will be the least of our problems.

My own theory about the present administration's failure to say ANYTHING about the pirates and their American hostage is that B.O. and Co. don't know whether to shit or go blind. They're waiting for someone to come and tell them what is the absolute foolproof response that will have zero negative political repercussions. This sort of thing isn't encountered by community organizers or state senators. Can you say, "clueless"?

Clueless, or he has a clue and doesn't want to use it. I'm leaning towards the former.

Clownbama is trying to appease all sides, and that's first lesson in intellegence 101 you can't please everyone.

Obama lacks the necessary gonads to stand up to the enemies of America. Apparently, his commie/atheist mother and his grandmother feminized him in his formative years.

He wants to bow and scrape before our enemies and invite them all to dinner.

If anyone finds a extra set of balls lying around, please send them to Obama.

Oloser is worthless in office and will sit there with his head up his tail eating pizza as the next terrorist attack comes to American soil. He's worse in office than "I didn't do it" Clinton was.
