23 Years

"I could have another, but probably shouldn't."

That's no joke!

August 1, 1993 was a life changing day for me; the likes of which I hadn't had since I was 8-years old - which I didn't have again until my children were born - which I won't have again until the day I die.

I've never understood guys who can't settle into their marriage and allow their wife to be the cornerstone of their life...I know many men see this as weakness, but I know better; I know it is the greatest strength in my life.  It is a source of strength I can draw from any time I need to.  It makes the good things in my life, better, and it makes the bad things in my life, bearable.

Besides that, the constant chase for other women would be exhausting, as well as ultimately unfulfilling and destructive.  And no matter who I found, I can't imagine finding anyone who loves and fights for me as much as Melissa does.  She truly is a fantastic wife.  A lady who is every bit as committed to making her marriage the center of her life as I am.

For this is I am thankful.  It is why I have been and always always will be "true"...By the way, I've actually been "true" for 25 years ;)



“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.”
– Noah Calhoun (The Notebook, By Nicholas Sparks)

LIBERAL JACKASS QUOTE

Barack Obama

"I am in my second term. It has been an extraordinary privilege for me to serve as the president of the U.S.  I can not imagine a greater honor or a more interesting job. I love my work.  But under our constitution, I can not run again.  I actually think I'm a pretty good president -- I think if I ran I could win. But I can't.  So there is a lot that I'd like to do to keep America moving, but the law is the law."

I almost vomited when I saw this.  The thought of Obama getting another crack at the presidential apple is a truly horrific thought...That said, I do believe he could win again - just as Reagan and Clinton probably could have.

What's really crazy is although I believe Obama could win again, I also believe if he could run again Democrats would continue to take huge losses in every other aspect of government than in the presidency:  Both houses of Congress, Governors and state legislatures, etc...Because the American people are completely out of their minds.  They have no idea what they want, though they know what we currently have is a complete train wreck.  This is the cause of the 'Trump Effect,' for those who haven't figured it out.

I also find it humorous, in a sick way, to hear Obama talk about having to follow "the law,' because he's the most lawless president in American history...Unfortunately, we're going to have to deal with even more of this lawlessness and his desire to "run again" in the last 18 months of his term - an 18 month period where no amount of lawlessness is beyond possible.

Luckily, these acts of lawlessness will come with a price for the Democrat Party; particularly for 'The Queen.'

Korean War Armistice Day - July 27

The Korean War Veterans Memorial - My personal favorite war memorial in Washington D.C. (excluding Arlington)...A truly powerful memorial.  The statues are mesmerizing and the Reflecting Wall is amazing, but one simple floor stone caught my attention more than anything else.  It says it all about the war - it says it all about what our men and women gave:


- Dedicated: July 27, 1995.
- Sculptor of Statue(s): Frank Gaylord.
- Walls: 164 feet long, 8 inches thick; more than 100 tons of highly polished granite; more than 2500 photographic, archival images representing the land, sea and air troops that supported those who fought in the war sandblasted onto wall; "Academy Black" granite from California.
- Statues: 19 stainless steel statues; 7'3"-7'6" tall; each one nearly 1000 pounds; 15 Army, 2 Marines, 1 Navy Medic, 1 Air Force Observer; fiber optic lighting.
- Pool of Remembrance: 30 feet in diameter; black granite from Canada.
- 223 piles driven into bedrock, 30-60 feet deep, supporting the statues and the wall.
- United Nations Wall: raised granite curb lists the 22 nations that contributed to this first U.N. effort.
- Land area: 2.2 acres.

2006 Armistice Ceremony - By Dick Cheney

"Americans already familiar with the heroism of World War II and Vietnam are now learning the story of Korea, of what was gained, and what was lost, and of the decisions made so long ago that have a continuing significance to this day.

"When the war began in the summer of 1950, our military had been through years of demobilization and was scarcely prepared for what lay ahead. The South Korean units were even worse off. The first units on our side in the battle area went in without tanks and were severely outgunned. General Ridgway said it was as if a few troops of Boy Scouts with hand weapons had tried to stop a German Panzer column. Another soldier remembers Korea as 'a war of fists and rifle butts.' Yet our troops fought valiantly. In early battles, American and South Korean combat forces were often outnumbered, sometimes by as much as 20 to one. It was, said President Truman, one of the most heroic rearguard actions on record.

"Throughout the conflict, American and South Korean forces found themselves in some of the most difficult conditions any army could face. Their weapons rusted in the monsoons of summer, and froze solid during the coldest Korean winter in a hundred years. Many of our men who fell into enemy hands were treated with cold-blooded cruelty. By the time the fighting ceased and the armistice was signed, 131 Americans had earned the Medal of Honor, and of those, 94 died while earning it.

"In the space of just 37 months, the United States of America lost a total of more than 36,000 of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines. More than 90,000 others returned home wounded. And even today, 53 years after the guns went silent, some 8,000 of our men remain unaccounted for. These brave Americans were last seen doing their duty. We know their names. We honor their service. And this nation will persist in the effort to gain a full accounting for every last one of them.

"The cause America stood for in Korea, joined by forces from many countries, was noble and just. It was the cause of human freedom. It was a battle to determine, as General Ridgway put it, 'Whether the rule of men who shoot their prisoners, enslave their citizens, and deride the dignity of man shall displace the rule of those to whom the individual and his individual rights are sacred.'

"All of us look to the day when the light of freedom and progress covers all of Korea, and stability on the peninsula rests on a foundation of peaceful reconciliation. Until then, stability and peace will be maintained by our great military alliance. Tens of thousands of American troops proudly serve in Korea today. We will maintain our presence there. America's commitment to peace in the region, and to the security of our friends, is unbreakable. The United States and South Korea will continue to stand together in defending civilization against global terror, and building the peace that freedom brings.

"Our people stationed in South Korea today follow in the finest of traditions, going back to the 1.8 million Americans who fought there during the war, and the millions of others who have honored this country by their military service. In these early years of the 21st century, the American people have been inspired once again by the bravery and the selflessness of our armed forces. Freedom is not free, and all of us are deep in the debt of the men and women who go out and pay the price for our liberty.

"As President Eisenhower said 53 years ago, Americans who fought in Korea 'proved once again that only courage and sacrifice can keep freedom alive upon this Earth.' By that courage and sacrifice, the United States and our allies held off the aggressive expansion of communism, and helped make possible the freedom and the great prosperity today enjoyed by some 48 million South Koreans. Decades after he left the military, one of our veterans said this: 'I was glad to have served my country, and I've never heard Korean veterans complain. In fact, if we had to do it all over again, we would.'

"Ladies and gentlemen, there could be no more eloquent testimony to the character of our country than those words from an American who served in that war. And it is fitting that every year, on the 27th of July, we honor them all and offer the respect of a grateful nation."

Better Late Than Never...I Guess

"Symbols are important, and Obama isn't ignorant of that.  In fact, he recently treated the White House itself as a billboard for his political agenda by lighting it up in rainbow colors after the Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage.  Perhaps he's been too busy reviewing the case for allowing transgenders to openly serve in the military to remember that lowering the flag would be appropriate."
- Nate Jackson

On July 16, a Navy sailor and four Marines were killed in a terror attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  It only took Obama five days to decide the right thing to do was to order The Flag at half-staff in their honor...Five days and the U.S. Congress to humiliate him by ordering their Flag at half-staff - WITHOUT HIS ORDER!

Our Commander-in-Chief continues to prove what a clueless - or at the least apathetic - POS he is...Every day he reminds us, and I'm sure he'll continue this awful habit until the day he leaves office.  Unfortunately, that's far too far away.

For those who have a mounted flag, which can't be taken to half-staff, you can get a black ribbon (about the width of the stripes on The Flag), cut it to approximately the length of The Flag, and tie it from the top of The Flag...Let it drape down.

LIBERAL JACKASS QUOTE

Susan Wickerstrom (Oregon Health Authority Spokesmouth)

"Age of consent varies by state.  Oregon law - which applies to both Medicaid and non-Medicaid Oregonians - states that the age of medical consent is 15."

- Commenting about a policy Oregon changed, without public debate; including gender reassignment for children at the age of 15 years - and they can do so without parental consent.

I can't say with certainty, but I don't even think California would go this far - though I admit I could be wrong.

These same 15-year old tranny-wannabe's can't even take Tylenol to school without a doctor's note, but they can lop their 'Little Richards' off?  You have got to be kidding me?

"All I can say is that as a nation, collectively, we have lost our minds.  Or at a minimum we have lost our way.  We simply can't have state sponsored mutilation of children.  This is beyond insanity...One thing that they should absolutely not be able to do is be diagnosed with 'gender dysphoria' and have their genitals surgically removed or rearranged in a way which will never be able to be fully restored." - Jazz Shaw

"Lost our minds"  and "beyond insanity," indeed...You may think the insanity of Liberal America (California, Oregon, New York, etc.) is confined to those locations, but it is not; especially when the federal courts get involved, forcing the rest of the country to accept the insanity of these states - as we see on a regular basis.

In other words:  We've not only "lost or minds" and are "beyond insanity" - we are crossing a point of no return.  A point where we are entirely fucked!
