Something to think about....

Well, hello!! Thanks to all of those that continue to show your support to my brother and I. We greatly appreciate it!!

Well....I'm counting the days till I get the heck out of here!! There's been some things that have happened, but you know the drill...If I told you, I'd have to kill you. Well...I wouldn't really be that mean...maybe I could get away with cutting your tongue out...so you couldn't talk...anyway...just kidding. I'm not THAT mean.

Well anyway...this post really doesn't require me to type a whole lot...I found something that was pretty interesting so I thought I would put it on here. Now, although I agree with a lot of the following, I don't agree with all of it. Well... I think I will take a few minutes to vent about some of the other things going on in our world before I post that....

1) Little Caylee's grandparents are almost just as guilty as the mom. There is no explanation that you can give that would calm me down about this. The other day I saw that they were wanting immunity. WHY?? OH that's right, little Caylee lived in YOUR HOUSE!! It wasn't like the mom and Caylee lived in an apartment or had their own house...they lived with the grandparents. SO they are an accessory to murder. They more than likely knew about her disappearance/murder but played stupid. Come on, who watched her while the mom was at work...who picked her up from preschool or daycare or took her here and there...There is NO WAY you can tell me they didn't know something happened to their precious grand daughter. Basically, I think they knew, and covered it up as long as possible and finally they told the mom, "we're not covering this up anymore, we're calling the cops". AND so here we are now.

2) Why are people burning U.S. flags because Israel is kicking some ass in Gaza? Ok, so maybe we support them, and maybe we aren't getting involved with the cease fire and all... It's not our fight. One more time...It's not our fight. 80 rockets came into Israel on Christmas...80! If Canada or Mexico shot 80 rockets into the U.S....I feel pity on them. What do you expect?? And those 80 were just the beginning. It's almost a fact that Hamas hates Israel, stockpiles weapons, and eventually shoots a bunch into Israel for shits and giggles just to piss them off. SO the outcome...Israel returning the favor. Is that seriously out of the question?? But what really bugs me about all this is the hatred and protests across the world towards the US. Why? We didn't shoot 80 rockets at Israel...they did. OH, I get it... we are the world police and you want to know why we're not getting involved. I'll tell you why...justice is being served. We weren't needed. So take all of your picket signs and crap, go back home, and wait for something worth protesting... OH like the government bailing out the "Big Three"...or Caylee's grandparents asking for immunity.

3) At what point do you say enough is enough? At what point do you tell your boss to piss of, call his boss, and vent to him the problems that have been going on for the last 9 months?? At what point do you get fed up with being treated like a "red-headed step child" and tell the "higher-ups" how you feel about the way things are being done, how your being treated, and how you've been treated like crap. At what point? At what point do you just flip the hell out? What point do you stop taking the crap from others, look them in the face, and say "You're done!!" ?? When does that happen? Now, I am reminded of the serenity prayer:

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

So with that being said...should I accept the lawlessness of those around me, use my courage to report the offenses, or look for wisdom from my peers and realize it wouldn't do any good anyway. Some people/Soldiers just don't realize they are in Iraq and continue to live and do the childish, immature, and rediculous things they do back home. What needs to happen to snap these folks out of stupidity and into reality? Wait...some people are just unable to be helped. I've tried, we've tried, and no positive results have came from our efforts. Maybe when "uneducated" people say that a person can't be helped...they're right. I'm starting to believe it. I also believe that stupidity, immaturity, and the lack common sense has no border. It doesn't stop with one group of people. No one is immune. Unfortunately. It would be nice to escape it once in while.

ANYWAY...so here's what I got a kick out of earlier. I hope you didn't mind me venting a little. I'm ready to come home, and I'm ready to get away from the over abundance of the foresaid people. That's the best way to put it. Without further ado:

wouldn't it be great....?

WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT TO TURN ON THE TV AND HEAR ANY U.S. PRESIDENT (DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN) GIVE THE FOLLOWING SPEECH ...


My Fellow Americans:
As you all know, the defeat of Iraq regime has been completed.

Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraqis complete.

This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now time to begin the reckoning.

Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Polandare some of the countries listed there.

The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war.

The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell-holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France.

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth.

Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or maybe China.

I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York

A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change.

Mexico is also on List 2. President Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put em? Yep, border security. So start doing something with your oil.

Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty - starting now.

We are tired of the one-way highway. Immediately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska- which will take care of this country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country and move there. They care.

It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism.. I answer them by saying, "darn tootin."
Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America. It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. It is time to eliminate World Cup Soccer from America . To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thanks guys. We owe you and we won't forget. To the nations on List 2, a final thought: You might want to learn to speak Arabic. God bless America. Thank you and good night. If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier.
