WTF, Over?!?

I don't have a picture for this first WTF so I will have to make do with words only...try and hang in there on this one...On my way to work there is a small dip in the road and a traffic light. If you owned a car that rode rather low to the ground you might have to slow down to keep from bottoming out. My SVT Mustang takes this dip just fine at 20 MPH. It seems however that Excursion, F-150, Dodge Ram and many other drivers of SUV's, Pick-ups and all manner of other outwardly appearing normal vehicles can't traverse this dip at any speed other than a crawl. As a result 2-3 cars can get through the intersection before the light changes...what on earth has possessed these people to believe that the undercarriage of these fine pieces of Detroit iron will rip away if they went across this ripple in the road at a speed faster than .5 MPH? If they went across the dip a little faster they would have to drive 40 through the school zone down the road to make it to formation on time (WTF?!?)

WTF! I spotted this bumper sticker on a car in our parking lot at work (for those who don't know I'm in the Army). We share our parking lot with two different other units one of them National Guard, so I don't know who it belongs to, don't care...I'm just totally baffled by it. The car had 3 other anti GWB stickers as well...I couldn't find them on the web (honestly I devoted about 30 seconds trying to find them...I cared that much!), but they were similar in content. In the year 2006 one would assume if you felt that way and you were in the military you either joined knowing this war was going on and knowing that you would be sent to fight in something you didn't believe in (WTF?!?) or you choose to stay in even though you believe the President is an idiot and the war is wrong (once again WTF?!?). It's possible that the car belonged to a civilian contractor, so I won't even go to the entire UCMJ thing about contemptuous statements about the President and such...but even if it was a contractor...they are making money off the military which is engaged in a war they obviously don't agree with, but they are enabling it. (WTF?!?) Also the car had a Texas license plate so could it be that the idiot is the one driving...just wondering.

WTF! You can take the girl out of the trailer park but you can't take the trailer park out of the girl. Hey, unless you're married to her, there's not too many people that want to she a nekid pregnant woman...even if you are married to her, some people would rather not partake. And didn't Demi (Ashton's Mom) Moore do this already? Shouldn't she be crying on Matt Lauer's shoulder right now zbout being hounded by the press or something? WTF?!?

Hadji Girl Update

There is some good news in this after all...

By Michelle Malkin · June 27, 2006 02:41 PM
I talked last night with Marine Josh Belile, who was targeted by the Haditha exploiters at CAIR for a satirical song he sang to the troops. He has been exonerated and asked me to post his statement:

It's good to be able to breathe again. I have had a lot of support since this all began, and I want everyone to know that I've read every e-mail, and every message that came my way, and out of nearly 1300 messages, I had one single message that was negative. I can definitely say that this could have been a blessing in disguise. Before this all began, not many people knew of my band, The Sweater Kittenz... and we just played a concert at the largest venue in my local area this past Friday.

Basic Training Redux

For some reason there are lot of folks looking at my post on Basic Training

To make a long story short, a friend of mine e-mailed me a story about how Basic Training or as it was called when I came in Initial Entry Training has evolved and changed with the goal being to graduate more of the people who begin the training.

As I'm not involved with that portion of the Army pipeline, it's difficult for me to comment on the specifics of what may or may not occur during basic these days. I have noticed that a lot of people focus on Drill Instructors screaming at and intimidating the new soldiers. Some long for the return of this type of training while others fail to see the value in it. Personally, there was nothing the Drill Sergeant could do that I hadn't already experienced via football coaches or other life experience prior to the Army. Additionally, the value of DI induced stress has been questioned and sometimes pronounced counter-productive.

Unfortunately, as has been demonstrated by recent events the battlefield is not a forgiving place and our enemies are not forgiving nor do they give any quarter. Basic Military Training should MUST include stresses to weed out those who can't or won't be able to handle what may occur in their unit when they get to the field. Since actually shooting at soldiers is dangerous other ways need to be found to stress the new soldier. This process isn't necessarily pretty and feelings will be hurt, but does that mean it's un-necessary?

Does that mean I favor DI's striking solders? No...that isn't even necessary if the program is well thought out and implemented. My worry is that given the products I've seen on this end of the pipeline, the process weeds out little to no chaff, and unfortunately that means someone could pay the price somewhere down the line...and it's not always the deficient individual that pays that bill.

Bottom line, all training is always changing and evolving based on feedback from the field...lets just hope they tighten up the shot group a little (or a lot depending on your POV).

The President Speaks To The NY and LA Times

Maybe this time we will do something about this disgraceful behavior by some newspapers...and while we're at it find the asshole who leaked the story in the first place.

US President George W. Bush attacked as "disgraceful" the public disclosure of a secret government program to monitor international finances and track down terrorist funding.

"Congress was briefed, and what we did was fully authorized under the law. and the disclosure of this program is disgraceful," Bush told reporters in the wake of last week's revelations of the roughly five-year-old program.

"We're at war with a bunch of people who want to hurt the United States of America. And for people to leak that program, and for a newspaper to publish it, does great harm to the United States of America," he said...

Snow to Keller [Kathryn Jean Lopez]

Mr. Bill Keller, Managing Editor
The New York Times
229 West 43rd Street
New York, NY 10036

Dear Mr. Keller:

The New York Times' decision to disclose the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program, a robust and classified effort to map terrorist networks through the use of financial data, was irresponsible and harmful to the security of Americans and freedom-loving people worldwide. In choosing to expose this program, despite repeated pleas from high-level officials on both sides of the aisle, including myself, the Times undermined a highly successful counter-terrorism program and alerted terrorists to the methods and sources used to track their money trails....the rest is HERE

Citizens Arrest! Citizens Arrest!

The charter member of the Barney Fife Fan Club, Shannon Ireland Chapter made an appearance recently. MORE HERE H/T LGF!

SIX United States soldiers on their way home from service in Iraq were placed under citizen’s arrest after an anti-war activist spotted them walking around a town in their uniforms.

Shannon-based peace activist Conor Cregan said yesterday that he briefly detained the six on Thursday afternoon after finding them walking on the Limerick Road leading out of Ennis. “I placed the soldiers under citizen’s arrest because these soldiers are not supposed to be walking freely on the streets of Ireland in uniform. It is a breach of the Irish Constitution and Irish neutrality,”he said.

The six were part of a group of 238 troops who were forced to stay overnight on Thursday in due to technical problems experienced by their aircraft at Shannon airport. They were staying at the West County Hotel in Ennis and met Mr Cregan near the hotel on a public footpath.

If it had been me on my return from Iraq, this character might have got a taste of the Irish blood in my veins...I don't think I would have been as polite as these soldiers seem to have been...on the other hand...I'm full of it, I probably wouldn't have done anything myself. Anyway these guys now have quite the story to tell their families, what a boob.

When Will This Stop?

For more posters like this go HERE

SUNDAY MORNING UPDATE As if revealing a SECRET program to track the financing of terrorisim wasn't enough, the NY TIMES has seen fit to publish classified information about troop levels...

"According to a classified briefing at the Pentagon this week by the commander, Gen. George W. Casey Jr., the number of American combat brigades in Iraq is projected to decrease to 5 or 6 from the current level of 14 by December 2007." The rest can be seen ON THIS SITE

They just can't help is unreal the amount of damage these morons are attempting to inflict upon the nation as a whole and the armed forces and intellegence community in particular. UN-FUCKINGBELEAVABLE!

The original outrage follows below...

I understand this morning that the NY Times and the LA fish wrap have chosen to reveal a secret government program to track down and expose terrorists that has proved effective even after the government requested that they don't reveal it. I also understand that the printing of this information isn't illegal, the only person breaking the law was the person who gave them the SECRET information.

At what point do these people become citizens of this country? If the government can't prosecute, at what point do we "the people" make these business' pay for what they are doing? "THEY" in the name of "THE PUBLIC INTEREST" have chosen to make us all less safe by revealing a program that was by all accounts effective, all because they have appointed themselves the arbiter of what's right and wrong in this country. The unmitigated gaul.

Media Refuses to Hold Surveillance Story
Jun 23 12:23 AM US/Eastern

AP Business Writer


The Bush administration and The New York Times are again at odds over national security, this time with new reports of a broad government effort to track global financial transfers.

The newspaper, which in December broke news of an effort by the National Security Agency to monitor Americans' telephone calls and e- mails, declined a White House request not to publish a story about the government's inspection of monies flowing in and out of the country.

The Los Angeles Times also reported on the issue Thursday night on its Web site, against the Bush administration's wishes. The Wall Street Journal said it received no request to hold its report of the surveillance.

Administration officials were concerned that news reports of the program would diminish its effectiveness and could harm overall national security...

America’s First Team set to deploy
By Sgt. Colby Hauser
June 22, 2006

FORT HOOD, Texas (Army News Service, June 22, 2006) – News that the Department of Defense announced the deployment of the 1st Cavalry Division Headquarters element and the 2nd and 3rd Brigade Combat Teams to Iraq spread like wildfire throughout the division this week.

Since their return from a yearlong deployment in March 2005, the Soldiers have contributed to humanitarian missions in New Orleans and hurricane relief efforts in Pakistan. The division also transformed to the Army’s new modularity concept, through which individual headquarters and combat brigades can receive orders to deploy.

“The First Team has been preparing for this announcement and is ready to answer our nation’s call,” said Maj. Gen. Joseph F. Fil, Jr., 1st Cavalry Division commanding general. “They are the best trained, the best equipped, and they are supported by the best people, their loved ones and the good people of Central Texas.”

Experience replaces concerns and worries for many of the Soldiers, who have already deployed to Iraq once.

“I was worried the first time I deployed,” said Spc. Courtney Yeargin, a signals intelligence analyst with Headquarters Company, Division Special Troops Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division. “I’m more comfortable with it the second time around because I know what to expect, and I guess that makes it not as stressful.”

For others, the deployment offers the opportunity to serve their country in its time of need.

“I was fully aware before I joined the Army there was a possibility of being deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan,” said Spc. Micheal Townsend, a human intelligence specialist with Headquarters Company, Division Special Troops Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division. “I joined during a time of war and I understood that. I came in to do something not many Americans get a chance to do.

“My family members have served and told their stories, and I feel like it’s my turn,” he said.

The 1st Brigade Combat Team, also located at Fort Hood, and the 4th Brigade Combat Team, from Fort Bliss, Texas, were not included in the announcement.

“The 1st and 4th Brigades will continue to train and prepare themselves to deploy should they be ordered to do so,” Fil said.

The 1st Air Cavalry Brigade and the 15th Support Brigade received orders to deploy last November and are also scheduled to depart for Iraq later this year.

“I am really excited because that’s what being in the Army is about, being deployed and serving your country,” Yeargin said.

World Cup?!?

Apparently there is some kind of soccer tournament going on...and these Swedes are celebrating something.

Seriously, ESPN quit trying to jam football soccer down my throat. I don't like it, I won't like it and no matter how hard you try all it will ever be to the USA is the place where our field goal kickers come from.

Good grief...have you watched any of this crap? And some of you have the gaul to call baseball boring. You want to watch people run up and down the pitch try watching Lacross...when someone gets their clock cleaned there they give em a pat on the back instead of some stupid colored card. Soccer=the woosification of America...friends don't let friends play soccer.

The Hot Waitress Paradox

This post is in no way intended to impugn the good natured hard working women of HOOTERS. I used this photo because these women are in fact waitresses and for all I know damn good at their jobs...but then again they could be bitches, you decide.

Through the years I have come to the conclusion that it is almost impossible to get excellent service in a regular restaurant (not Hooters or a strip joint...not that I'd know anything about those kind of places) from a waitress that might be considered "hot" or to be more quaint, "easy on the eyes". You can have great service from a guy that is a clone of the "Chotskies" waiter in "Office Space" (whom you would like to slowly strangle by the end of the meal with your bare hands) or you can ogle "Miss Thing" who is hot as hell but will totally foul up your order and then laugh about it...good luck trying to find that most elusive of all dining experiences the attractive competent waitperson...of course if I would eat at someplace other than Sonic I might have better luck.

What the HELL does this have to do with the North Koreans shooting a nuke at LA you ask? Absolutely nothing, but wait there's more!

First of all, if you're thinking this has something to do with anything that has happened to me over the weekend you are mistaken. I will have you know it is impossible to get good service in a restaurant in Killeen, TX from ANYONE let alone a waitress that's easy on the eyes...if you can find one.

Back when these things really began to matter to me, when I went out with my buddies we always wanted to be waited on by a young lady who was attractive. After a while it began to dawn on us that while she was easy to look at, more than often pleasant and sometimes even flirted openly with us (for a bigger tip no doubt) the quality of her (their) work was for the most part inferior to that performed by lesser mortals. Why could this be?

Perhaps it stems from what I call the "Jessica Simpson Syndrome". Pretty girls generally have life pretty easy, they get out of speeding tickets, they pretty much get every thing they want and because they know that guys like pretty girls they use that to their advantage. This includes batting ones eyes and professing not to know that "Chicken of the Sea" is in fact tuna or forgetting the details of their customers order...because after all they know the guy isn't going to hold them responsible. Maybe they just don't give a crap. Maybe they are stupid. Maybe they didn't like me (doubtful but we need to explore all options).

Are there exceptions to this rule? Of course there are. I have had the pleasure of dining at establishments where the waitstaff was both attractive and competent...but it also meant spending a shit-pot full of money. Just so you know a "shit-pot" is more that a "crap load" but less than an "ass-load".

Additionally, I come to this not just from the customer point of view. Way back when I was an assistant manager of a Dairy Queen. Without a doubt the most difficult employees were the girls who were easy on the eyes. Non stop drama all the time...and get off the frecking phone and get back to work for pete's sake and no I won't clean the ice cream machine for you.

Finally I have been told throughout my checkered Army career that you shouldn't discuss a problem without proposing a solution. What is my solution to this pressing problem you might ask? Well here's one...don't hire good looking waitresses. Tell them to get their asses into the strip joint where they belong. Besides they can make more money there and they don't really have to be nice to the customers unless they feel like it. Seriously though, the problem lies with society and the way we raise girls versus boys but I like my first answer better.

From "Inside the Ring"

This bit from the always informative Inside the Ring. Bravo and good luck to Mr. Dollard. See his website HERE. It's under keep an eye out.

Iraq documentary
Conservative filmmaker Patrick Dollard, a former Hollywood agent and manager, is working on a major documentary highlighting the heroism and bravery of U.S. Marines and soldiers in Iraq. The series is expected to counter much of the liberal press' view of the war and the troops fighting it.

Mr. Dollard tells us he spent a total of seven months in some of the hottest zones in Iraq and was nearly killed in an improvised explosive device attack on a Humvee.

"I was going because it was obvious how left-leaning and biased the coverage of the war was, and because I wanted to get to know what was going on over there, and what these American kids, who I felt were making the world a much better place, were all about and what they thought about what they were doing," Mr. Dollard said.

He covered military operations in Fallujah, Ramadi and the Triangle of Death south of Baghdad and, unlike most journalists, stayed only about a half-day in the secure Green Zone in the Iraqi capital.

Mr. Dollard, who once represented cutting-edge Hollywood director Steven Soderbergh, said he was shocked at the anger most U.S. troops feel toward the press for misreporting the Iraq war.

"Not only were the media not reporting the good news from Iraq, but they wouldn't even lift an intellectual pinky to analyze for America how important to the world's security a victory in Iraq is," he said.

"Most journalists I met were anti-Bush, and could barely contain their hope for an American loss in Iraq that would sway the next elections to the Democratic Party. And when I taped several Marines and Iraqis telling me stories about outright lies and false quotes by some very big American media players, I got really, really mad."


Son, someday you will make a girl very happy, for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you and be with new men who are ten times better than you could ever hope to be. These men are called pilots...right June?

They or maybe SHE doesn't get it.

I don't listen to this musical group (dixie chicks) and never have. I really don't care what they do...but this statement is both irritating and confounding.

If you can even think to say something like this...

"The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism," Maines resumes, through gritted teeth. "Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country… I don't see why people care about patriotism."

...we can't even begin to have a conversation. I suppose she feels she is some sort of citizen of the world or something. To top it off she made this statement to a British newspaper. I'm ashamed you are from my home state, Ms Maines.

Blue Falcon Revealed

This AM I have found SHOCKING information about what the BLUE FALCON really is...

Blue Falcon

Identity/Class: Normal human

Occupation: (during Dynomutt cartoon) Art Dealer; (during Harvey Birdman cartoon) Lawyer

Affiliations: Dynomutt (his sidekick); Scooby Doo, Mystery Inc. (Velma Dinkley, Norville "Shaggy" Rogers, Daphne Blake, Fred Jones);

(Harvey Birdman cartoon) Harvey Birdman (fellow lawyer); Falcon 7 (lawfirm boss); Dexter

Enemies: Manyfaces; Mr Hyde; Hyde Dog; The Gimmick; The Worm; Fishface; Superthug; Zorkon; Mr.Cool; Queen Hornet; Swamp Rat; Mudmouth; Tin Kong; Iron Face; Serpent Lady; Red Vulture; The Injustice League of America (Fishface, The Worm, The Queen Hornet, Lowbrow, Superthug, and The Gimmick); The Blimp; The Prophet; Beastwoman; The Glob; Madame Ape Face; The Shadowman

Known Relatives: None known

Aliases: None known

Base of Operations: Big City

First Appearance: Dynomutt, the Dog Wonder - a segment of "The Scooby Doo / Dynomutt Show" (Hanna-Barbera for ABC, 1976)

Powers/Abilities: Blue Falcon was a skilled fighter, and had gadgets for every occasion hidden within his utility belt.

History: Wealthy socialite Radley Crown had a secret. Unbeknownst to the public he is also the heroic crimefighter the Blue Falcon. When Big City is threatened Mayor Gaunt would activate the Falcon Flash, alerting the Falcon and his sidekick, the cyborg dog Dynomutt, to the crisis. Then the two would head to the Falcon's Lair (hidden within Radley's penthouse), don their costumes and race off in the Falconcar to confront whatever villain was planning an evil scheme, with Blue Falcon saving the day, usually in spite of rather than because of, the aid of his loyal partner. They often received information about the threats they faced through a telelink to secret agent Focus One.

(Scooby's Laff-A-Lympics) The Blue Falcon and Dynomutt lend their old friend Scooby a hand by joining his team with his Olympic style games show.

(Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law) The Falcon and Dynomutt join the same lawfirm as former superhero Birdman (now known as Harvey Birdman), but Dynomutt gets on Harvey's nerves. When the cyber-hound is found mangled and destroyed, Harvey Birdman is accused of his murder and tried for the crime.

(Dexter's Laboratory) With Dynomutt destroyed, Blue Falcon turned to boy genius Dexter to repair him. At first Dexter decided to build the Falcon a more efficient, Robocop-style sidekick, but when it went berserk, he reactivated Dynomutt.

Comments: Voiced by Gary Owens in the original shows, and by Maurice LaMarche in the Harvey Birdman episodes.

And all along I thought the real BLUE FALCON was this guy...

ACLU sues Pentagon

I just noticed this article floating around in the either...

ACLU sues Pentagon over anti-war group monitoring
Jun 14, 3:53 PM (ET)
By Jon Hurdle

PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - The American Civil Liberties Union sued the U.S. Defense Department on Wednesday to demand information it says the government has collected on groups opposed to the war in Iraq.

The group says the Pentagon has been monitoring anti-war groups and individuals and has compiled lists on people it sees as potential threats but who the ACLU says are exercising their free-speech rights.

The suit was the ACLU's first attempt to force the Pentagon to disclose domestic surveillance and followed similar suits by the organization against the FBI and the Justice Department.

"It's absolutely improper for the U.S. military to keep databases on lawful First Amendment (free-speech) activities," said ACLU attorney Ben Wizner. "These are peaceful, law-abiding groups and individuals that oppose U.S. war policy but pose no threat to the military."

Is it that unreasonable to assume that those would might want to do this country harm might try to ally themselves with those who express opposition to our current armed conflict? Nazis did it, the USSR did it, the North Vietnamese did why would we expect Al Queda to do it...that's ridiculous!

As Predicted...

Panties are twisted into knots all over the world as I type...

The witch hunt is on, any bets on how long it takes to track down the singer and serve his carcass up on a silver platter to the whiners?

Music Video About Marine Sparks Anger
Jun 13 1:58 PM US/Eastern
Email this story

Associated Press Writer


A music video posted to the Internet, telling a tale about a U.S. Marine killing members of an Iraqi family, is being condemned by an Islamic group and investigated by the Marine Corps.

The four-minute video, called "Hadji Girl," appears to be sung by a Marine in front of a cheering audience. The lyrics talk about the Marine gunning down members of an Iraqi woman's family after they confront him with automatic weapons.

Lt. Col. Scott Fazekas, a spokesman for the Marines, said Tuesday that the Marines were aware of a video posted on the Internet that "purports to show a Marine singing an insensitive song about Iraqis." Fazekas said officials don't know the identity of the singer or whether he is in the military.


I hate to be the wet blanket, but the more I think about it, as funny as I found that song...whoever made it should have kept it to themselves.

I guess given that I posted it as well I am as guilty as anyone in spreading something that others may find offensive and especially considering the sensitivities of some in the middle east and in the most extreme instance even counter-productive to our efforts in the GWOT.

Now that the terrorists unwitting accomplices (the media) have gotten hold of it, they are going to try to turn it into our own little music video jihad. And since members of the USMC are involved wait for the link to be established with Haditha...mark my words.

Word to the wise...keep the dark humor to yourselves out there...the world isn't ready.

What Really is a STUNT?

It has been reported by several news organizations that several members of the political party known as the democrats have portrayed the strike that killed Zarqawi as a STUNT

Here's a quick of charge!



What is obvious to most people that aren't terrorists, is the killing of this scum is not just good news it's great news. It is really sad that some individuals quest for power and hate for the President of the United States would cause them to downplay and undermine at every step the efforts not only of this administration but the armed forces of the United States to safeguard the people of this nation...what will it take for these people to get on board? Oh yeah, they will be all for these type of actions when a person from their party takes charge.

It's not just despicable, it violates the oath they took when they assumed office...but hey those are just words who gives a crap about that whole "protect and defend" thing...did I say those are just words? It would be really funny if it weren't true...kinda makes me want to slap a cop and run through a security checkpoint. But of course I can never get away with that, I'm not a member of congress. WORTHLESS BASTARDS.

Actually I apologize for that last part. I shouldn't be calling members of congress "worthless bastards" as that is an insult to bastards everywhere.

Release Date: 6/8/2006

Release Number: 06-06-08P

Description: BAGHDAD, Iraq – Gen. George W. Casey Jr., Multi-National Force-Iraq Commanding General, announced the death of al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi in the following statement during a press conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad June 8:

“Ladies and Gentlemen, Coalition Forces killed al-Qaida terrorist leader Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi and one of his key lieutenants, spiritual advisor Sheik Abd-Al-Rahman, yesterday, June 7, at 6:15 p.m. in an air strike against an identified, isolated safe house.
“Tips and intelligence from Iraqi senior leaders from his network led forces to al-Zarqawi and some of his associates who were conducting a meeting approximately eight kilometers north of Baqubah when the air strike was launched.
“Iraqi police were first on the scene after the air strike, and elements of Multi-National Division North, arrived shortly thereafter. Coalition Forces were able to identify al-Zarqawi by fingerprint verification, facial recognition and known scars.
Al-Zarqawi and al-Qaida in Iraq have conducted terrorist activities against the Iraqi people for years in attempts to undermine the Iraqi national government and Coalition efforts to rebuild and stabilize Iraq. He is known to be responsible for the deaths of thousands of Iraqis. Al-Zarqawi’s death is a significant blow to al-Qaida and another step toward defeating terrorism in Iraq.
“Although the designated leader of al-Qaida in Iraq is now dead, the terrorist organization still poses a threat as its members will continue to try to terrorize the Iraqi people and destabilize their government as it moves toward stability and prosperity. Iraqi forces, supported by the Coalition, will continue to hunt terrorists that threaten the Iraqi people until terrorism is eradicated in Iraq.”

Yes I'm talking about you AKO! For those who don't know AKO (Army Knowledge On-Line) is the US Army's official in-house web-site. Advertised as the one-stop shop for all your professional information needs, AKO has got to be one of the most confoundingly difficult websites to find something on that I have ever seen.

What brought about this rant about something that the vast majority if the population hasn't seen, nor will see (with any luck) in their lifetime? Please allow me to explain.

Today I was searching for some information relevant to my job, school dates for a professional development course that my unit could send some soldiers to. That info is readily available on a site called ATRRS but, I am not the schools guy so I don't have access to that. I thought that maybe a simple query of the search engine on AKO might yield some results. 2 hours later I was still looking for information on even the course itself...forget the dates...just some info, maybe points of contact...but it was not to be. I am man enough to admit defeat. AKO beat me like a rented mule. If the designers of AKO set out to make it so confusing that even in the event of a password compromise nobody could find relevant information, consider yourself successful.

In a test I just conducted (1 minute ago) I entered the words "1st Cavalry Division" in the search engine block. Now logic would say I would get a link to the 1st Cavalry Division website at least somewhere near the top...well I'm here to tell you that it's not in the first 50 that's the kind of technology that makes us the best Army in the world.

I have a feeling I don't even want to know how much the Army has paid someone to develop this site. I could probably get a better website by going down to "The Android's Dungeon" and hiring some mouth breathing idiot wearing a Boba Fett t-shirt...but I wouldn't have gone through the competitive bidding process that ensures we will spend the most amount of money for the worst product in the known universe..."worst episode ever"

6-6-06 vs. 6-6-44

It's interesting in a sad kind of way how much time and energy was spent today noting how today's date links up with the "sign of the beast" and other assorted stories about Hell the devil and other stories of damnation.

What's also interesting in a sad way is the fact that unless you were watching the "Military Channel" or some other similar channel there was little to no mention that today marks 62 years since one of the most intrepid bold and audacious events of the second world war. Every day more and more WWII vets are leaving us for a better place...we can never repay them for the precious gift they have given us and it is truly a crying shame that we would rather talk about the supernatural rather than real supermen.

God bless them all!

One Funny Site.

I found this SITE ( while looking for the OIF Alphabet. This site is full of funny stuff about the USAF and the rest of us...don't go there unless you have a sense of humor.

I Am Too Foul For R. Lee Ermey!

Yes, you heard me right...this blog was deemed inappropriate to be included in the "Gunny Ermey Web Ring"

I received an e-mail stating that they didn't allow sites with nudity or semi nudity in their web ring. Damn women they ruin me every time!

This is well within their rights and I have no problem at all with it...but isn't awesome that I have been considered too dirty by the Drill Sergeant from "Full Metal Jacket"?

A Bunch of Selfish Bastards

I was at a local convenience store today when something occurred to me.

I had hopped out of my car and was going inside to get a "Big Gulp" when I was assaulted by the sound of someones sound system at least 75 feet away from me (in violation of a local ordinance by the way). Of course all I could hear was the bass, as the car threatened to vibrate itself apart. The more I encounter folks like this the more I get pissed off. WHO ARE THEY TO MAKE US ALL LISTEN TO THEIR MUSIC OF CHOICE?

It's been said, "If it's too loud, you're too old."

Well, personally, I don't care how loud you listen to your long as the general public doesn't have to pay for your hearing loss, knock yourself out. The problem to me occurs when you invade others personal this I mean, if I am inside the store I shouldn't have to listen to your music. I'm quite sure many people wouldn't enjoy listening to Van Halen blasting across the parking lot so what makes anyone believe that everyone wants to hear their latest hip hop or rap fave? The answer is, of course they know not everyone wants to hear it...they just don't care...because of course it's all about them. Just like the guy driving 55 MPH in the left lane on the interstate that won't pull's all about them.

In fact when you think about it most of this country's problems are a result of people being too busy to care about anything other than TiVOing the "Sopranos" and counting how many carbs are in their diet.

What a bunch of selfish self centered bastards we as a nation have become. We've become so successful that people for the most part can live in their self centered little world a never worry about the "War on Terror", a band of terrorists being arrested in Canada, hysterical screaming about an incident in Iraq that nobody really knows what occurred but we'll damn well make political points based on our predetermined views out of it, or anything else that's too ugly that it makes you want to change the channel or else you might have to actually think. Is this a great country or what?

Heritage Flight

The USAF does a pretty cool thing at air shows across the country where they team up warbirds and current fighters to do flybys and honor the history of their service.

I have always admired how the USAF keeps and holds the history of its squadrons...too bad the Army isn't as diligent in that regard.

You Can't Make This Stuff Up

H/T Ace of Spades

Go see exactly what The American Cornhole Association is. Don't worry it's harmless.


It has been called many things, Corn Toss, Bean Bag, Bean Toss, Soft Horseshoes, Indiana Horseshoes, but to many of us born and raised in Kentucky and the southern part of Ohio, the game is passionately referred to as Cornhole.

It has been said that the game originated in Germany in the 14th century, and then was rediscovered in the hills of Kentucky over 100 years ago.

The truth is, who really knows, but the game is great fun for all ages and can be played anywhere!

Cornhole or Corn Toss is similar to horseshoes except you use wooden boxes called cornhole platforms and corn bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Contestants take turns pitching their corn bags at the cornhole platform until a contestant reaches the score of 21 points. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.

Scoring can be swift and the lead may change hands several times in a match before the winner is decided.

The game is generally played tournament style with an individual or team being named the champion at the end of the tournament.
