Too Damn Much ~

Well.  Disrespect, rudeness, irreverence, ignorance, indecency, discourtesy, impertinence, impropriety and lying seem to be rearing their ugly heads in full-blown displays all over this country and in the “esteemed” halls of congress.

Breasts not Bombs (Ugly Alert!) ~ not being arrested because they are “exercising their right to protest”.  Don’t think this is what the Founding Fathers had in mind about “Peaceful Assembly.

Burning the flag (again) ~ Freedom of speech, my a$$

Senators and Congressmen ~ if my daughter had ever talked to anyone as certain senators and congressmen do to the professionals who are the objects of their witch hunts hearings, she would be grounded for a month!

Socialists (calling themselves Progressives) ~ Longing to control every aspect of your life with no lie being too small or too big to do it.
Phony soldiers ~ some have seats in Congress

Hillary (“I helped start Media Matters”) and Media Matters ~ Helping lies spread far and wide.

Code Pink ~ who’s main goal is to be as ludicrous, insensitive and annoying as possible by disrupting as many hearings as possible.

 The Media ~ Reporting what they think you should “know”, whether it’s the truth or not.

Moral Authority ~ Certain people wouldn’t know “moral” if it bit them in the place where their heads are.

 Disgusting!  Has that word gone out of fashion?  It would appear so, since so many do not seem to see the above behaviors as a problem.

 

Well, I do.   But I have hope because we have a large portion of this generation who understand the meanings of such concepts as ‘duty’, “loyalty’ and ‘honor’ and they are coming home from war.  And they’ll be aiming for those who have not acted in their best interest.  

 

HOO-FRICKIN-AH!!

Hell Yeah!!!

I just found this over at the United Conservatives of Virginia.

I found my new fight song ~ Hoo-frickin-Ahh!!!!

(h/t to CargoSquid,  you done good!)

Dropkick Murphys

“The Gauntlet”

Well I just got back from a break in the fight
I was weighing in heavy but still feeling alright
all I hear in the distance – mines and shells
here come the sirens wailing another attack to be repelled

Do you think we’re gonna make it?
I don’t know unless we try
you could sit here scared to move
or we could take them by surprise
it’s submission that they want
it’s surrender that they need
when we’re doing it their way
their aims will be achieved

They’re gonna come when you’re not ready
when you’re not too well-prepared
they’re gonna prey upon your weakness
no man’s soul is ever spared
you’ve got to stand up, yeah, and fight them
show them what it’s all about
this man is not for sale
there will be no backing down.

[Chorus:]
Stand up and fight and I’ll stand up with you
We shall succeed,
Stand up and fight and I’ll stand up with you

They won’t get me, they won’t get me
though they never cease to try
they won’t get me, they won’t get me
I would rather fight and die
they won’t get me, they won’t get me
well my friend will they get you?
when they get you, when they get you
tell me what you’re gonna do?

Do you think we’re gonna make it?
I don’t know unless we try
you could sit here scared to move
or we could take them by surprise
it’s submission that they want
it’s surrender that they need
when we’re doing it their way
their aims will be achieved.

They’re gonna come when you’re not ready
when you’re not too well-prepared
they’re gonna prey upon your weakness
no man’s soul is ever spared
you’ve got to stand up, yeah, and fight them
show them what it’s all about
this man is not for sale
there will be no backing down.

[Chorus: x2]
Stand up and fight and I’ll stand up with you
We shall succeed
Stand up and fight and I’ll stand up with you

I love Virginia!

Enough ~

I’ve had more than enough.

Have you?

If you can’t make it to DC to stand with GOE, there’s a way you can participate. One of the members, Freewheeler, has created a Victory magnet as a way to show your support and also raise money for GOE. It takes a lot of money to counterprotest the America-hating ANSWER et al, crowd and we don’t have a George Soros to fund us as they do. (Not that we’d want to ~ god forbid)

I have had designed and produced (made in the USA) a new car magnet that I believe reflects the correct message that we want on the back of our cars. It is a result of seeing the image on the home page of Vets for Victory, with the Soldier, or Marine, if you will , with his hand over his head and showing the V for victory sign. I belive that this could be used to spead the message to Support Victory and used as a fundraising item for all of the State chapters as well. You can see what they look like if you visit this link. If someone wants to do fundraising for GOE I will send any amount to them for 2.00 each. that includes postage. The catch is you need to donate an equal amont to GOE or your State GOE. Otherwise I will sell them to you for the price listed on the weblink and you can do what you wish, and I will send the amount over cost to the Texas GOE. I am just trying to help raise some money for either state or national GOE the best way I know how. There have been several Eagles who have gotten these already and I hope that they will comment on the quality and appearence of these magnets. Lets see how many of these we can get out there in the next 30 days. I am sure the moonbats will go nuts when they see that their stinking peace sign has been reclaimed to it rightful use. V for victory!!

For ordering information, or if you have any
questions, please email us at
ejfreeman@hughes.net

Freewheeler has decals also.

I ordered a bunch to send to friends and family and thought I’d also pack one in my care packages for my soldiers just so they know we here at home do support them and their mission.

Reminders

 

The VFW periodically sends me newsletters in my email. I hadn’t opened the last one yet (again with the not enough time in the day thing) until I received this e-newsletter from Maj Pain:

Fly Your Flag

SEE THIS

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDlEUlZjJVs

THEN READ THIS

Pretty sad we need a ‘reminder’ to fly the flag I think. Ours has been flying and will never quit. I do remember one day, driving to work right after 9-11 and becoming overcome with emotion as I drove down Sprinkle Road seeing all the flags flying. At one point in time, I even pulled over because it was to hard to drive. It was so amazing to see all of them, now I wonder, WHERE ARE THEY? It shouldn’t just be around the anniversary that people get their flags out, and it shouldn’t be that a reminder is needed to ever fly the flag……but it is a start I guess. If you do not have your flag out, please do so. If you don’t have a flag, please consider getting one. If yours is all tattered and worn, please get a beautiful new one to show.

 

I agree. There were few flags flying around Santa Cruz and it would warm my heart every time I did see one. I have had a flag out in my frontyard from the day my daughter left for Basic. That one went to Iraq through the Move America Forward Caravan in March of this year. Another one went up and it is now flying off my front porch here in VA. It was so heartening for me after my long exile in code pink land to see all the flags flying here in my corner of Virginia. And there are many ~ some houses have two flags flying. I have to wonder if maybe the people who lived in those houses have two soldiers in the sandbox.

I too, will have two flags flying ~ after all I have two porches. One for my daughter and one for my country.

Maj Pain speaks of 9/11 and all the flags he saw right after. Yes, it had appeared that the American people had gathered together in grief and support.

But I’m reminded also of another”gathering”: Discover the Networks

International ANSWER (an acronym for “Act Now to Stop War and End Racism”) is run by Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center, which is staffed by members of the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party (WWP). ANSWER views the United States as a racist, imperialist, sexist, homophobic nation and the world’s chief violator of human rights — guilty of unspeakable atrocities, past and present, foreign and domestic.

Founded on September 14, 2001 (three days after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon), (my emphasis) ANSWER held its initial mass demonstrations fifteen days thereafter, on September 29th in Washington, DC and San Francisco. These rallies drew 25,000 and 15,000 participants, respectively, to protest the Bush administration’s impending invasion of Afghanistan, whose Taliban regime had aided and abetted the al Qaeda terrorist network responsible for 9/11. In July 2002, ANSWER shifted its focus to denouncing the prospect of a possible U.S. invasion of Iraq.

ANSWER’s first “six-figure” rally took place on April 20, 2002, when more than 100,000 people protested outside the White House and marched through Washington, DC “in support of justice for Palestine.” According to ANSWER, this demonstration “broke the existing taboo in the United States among the traditional peace movement against open solidarity with the Palestinian people’s struggle,” and “revealed that the U.S. anti-war movement … could successfully organize with tens of thousands of Arab-American, Muslim and South Asian people to form a united front.” The aforementioned communities, says ANSWER, “have been under siege” in the U.S. since 9/11.

On January 18, 2003, ANSWER initiated the first internationally coordinated day of action against the impending war in Iraq, when some 500,000 people demonstrated in the District of Columbia, as did 200,000 in San Francisco and millions more in cities around the world.

On February 15 of that year, ANSWER, in conjunction with United for Peace and Justice, helped mobilize another set of massive antiwar demonstrations; some 500,000 attended in New York City, as did 100,000 in Los Angeles and many others in San Francisco, Chicago, and elsewhere across the United States.

ANSWER-organized rallies are all conducted in a similar fashion: Protestors gather at a mustering ground flanked by information and merchandise tables that are manned by a variety of leftist and communist organizations, which have paid ANSWER a fee for permission to distribute literature or sell their wares. An elevated stage is set up at the front of the rally site, complete with a massive sound system. After a musical prelude, a number of speeches are delivered — usually, over a dozen. Once this initial round of speeches is completed, the attendees march along a short route to the location of the final rally, where they encounter more literature and merchandise tables and are treated to another round of speeches. At both rally locations and along the course of the march, ANSWER volunteers raise funds by moving through the crowd with large buckets into which attendees deposit cash donations.

The speakers at ANSWER rallies are generally members of the political far left who oppose not only America’s role in the current war on terror, but also many additional aspects of the nation’s foreign and domestic policies. Such speakers include prominent members of activist and communist organizations; celebrities and entertainers; and politicians — often members of the Democratic Party’s Progressive Caucus. Some — such as Brian Becker, Larry Holmes, Teresa Gutierrez, Sarah Sloan, and Sara Flounders — are members of the Workers World Party. When addressing the crowds, these speakers accuse the U.S. of a broad spectrum of transgressions, including its alleged pursuit of colonialism, imperialism and world domination; its current “occupation” of Afghanistan and Iraq; its purportedly unjustified and immoral trade embargo against Fidel Castro’sPatriot Act; its mistreatment of “political prisoners” like cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal; its allegedly excessive military-related spending coupled with its “cuts in social programs”; and the discrimination, institutional racism, and police brutality it supposedly directs against minorities. Cuba; its “attacks” on the “civil rights and civil liberties” of Americans, as embodied in the Patriot Act; its mistreatment of “political prisoners” like cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal; its allegedly excessive military-related spending coupled with its “cuts in social programs”; and the discrimination, institutional racism, and police brutality it supposedly directs against minorities.

ANSWER is going to descend on Washington DC the week of Sept 15.
“Join Iraq Veterans Against the War, Veterans for Peace, the ANSWER Coalition, Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation, and thousands of others in Washington DC on September 15 for a huge antiwar protest timed to coincide with the report by General Petraeus on the “Surge” in Iraq.”

A PLEA FROM ADAM KOKESH “PROTESTING IS NOT ENOUGH!”
JOIN VFP IN WASHINGTON SEPTEMBER 15!

“…To kick off the week of action, after the rally we will march from the White House to the Capitol, and go straight into a mass civil-disobedience die-in around the Peace Monument. The die-in will be led by an Honor Guard of Iraq Veterans Against the War who will simulate a 21-Gun Salute before taps is played to initiate the die-in. We are asking as many members of VFP as possible to sign up to wear cammies and die-in around us to symbolize the American cost of this war. We will be encircled by bolts of red cloth to symbolize the Iraqi deaths and invite anyone else from the rally to participate in the die-in…”

And that’s just the Kick-Off.

“IVAW is asking that participants in the Die-In/Funeral select the name of one of the almost 4,000 soldiers who have been killed in Iraq. You can select a family member, friend or someone from your city, town or state. Please bring a photograph of that person and a sign with his/her name on September 15.”

Do you think they will ask for permission to use names of our Fallen to send a message  that the soldier would not have wanted any part of?  Don’t hold your breath on that one.

See their “Week of Action” here.

I dislike even linking to these people but one needs to know what the enemy within is planning.

Please read William Kristol’s Editorial on this here.

Well, as I have posted before, Move America Forward, Vets For Freedom and the Gathering of Eagles are also gathering, as well as Patriots from all around the country. Click on the links above for more info. This is a watershed moment for this country. It’s time to speak out loud and clear in our support of our country and our troops and damn it! their mission. The protesters have been getting away with their agenda for far too long and it’s way past time to let them know they do not speak for the entire country. Just the idiots.

Also,  from Families United:

Vets for Freedom has a new petition on their website and we’d like to encourage everyone to go to the petition and sign it.  The petition starts like this….

 

Iraq is now the central front in the War on Terrorism – not because Americans want it to be but because America’s enemies have said so and made it so. Al-Qaeda and Iranian-backed militias are determined to drive the United States out of Iraq. Al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups would then use that country as a safe haven from which they can mount attacks on the U.S., its interests and allies.

We recognize that the U.S. involvement in Iraq has divided Americans and that our leaders have made mistakes. We also recognize the cost of this war, not only in financial terms but, more importantly, in the loss of more than 3,000 of our bravest men and women. The issue, however, is not how or why U.S. forces became engaged in Iraq but, rather, what is happening there now and what would happen if we were to leave too soon.

Sign the Petition

But wait! There’s more!!

To show you the class of these I’m-for-peace folks, all you have to do is go over to Freedom’s Watch YouTube page and read the comments left there by the “folks for peace” here, here, here and here. I warn you though, in defense of your computer’s monitor, do not have large, throwable objects near by. Maybe a vomit bag….

And, MSNBC and CNBC refuse to run Freedoms Watch’s ads.  Hey, even CNN agreed to run the ads…

Even if I wasn’t the mother of a soldier, I would be standing with MAF, VFF and GOE.  I owe it to the Veterans of my war. You see, I was young and so totally ignorant during that time, that I didn’t stand up for them then.

I owe them.
