Yes, bring the troops home, but bring ’em home the right way: home victorious and to a home that welcomes them gladly, gratefully.

R’cat’s post, Support our troops!” is a powerful reminder of the differences between “us” and “them”. It’s also a clarion call to keep our military who serve us day in and day out in the forefront of our minds and hearts and prayers.

Remember this tribute to the troops from last November? Here’s a reminder, even before you CLICK the link (2nd verse and chorus, only)

Homeward Bound

If you find it’s me you’re missing, if you’re hoping I’ll return.
To your thoughts I’ll soon be list’ning, and in the road I’ll stop and turn.
Then the wind will set me racing as my journey nears its end.
And the path I’ll be retracing when I’m homeward bound again.

Bind me not to the pasture, chain me not to the plow.
Set me free to find my calling and I’ll return to you somehow.

-Music and Lyrics by Marta Keen

Do yourself a favor. Buy the sheet music. Buy a CD with the song. Wear ’em out. This is simply one of the best contemporary pieces of real music out there, and used in this flash presentation with images of our military serving both us and the Iraqis, it’s a powerful means of digging deep into our hearts and minds. Here’s one source for a recording. (Neat thing: this recording—which I admit I’ve not yet heard—also includes some other fine tunes like AR HYD Y NOS [All Through the Night] and Simple Gifts.)

Or try “The Road Home”.

This is the version of the song used in the “Until Then” flash presentation linked above.

While you’re at GCS Distributing, check out Still Here, another moving tribute to the troops. Link to these and others you find. (If this one doesn’t choke you up, move you to awe at the service of our troops “then and now” and compel you to express your respect and gratitude then I just don’t want to know you… ) Let the images and the music form messages to build powerful hooks into your heart and mind to help remind you to keep those who are serving you in the forefront of your thoughts.

To quote a more eloquent voice than mine,

“Respect them. Honor them. Cherish them… They guard our freedom, and they have purchased the freedom of countless millions with their dearest blood.”

Cos it’s past time for me to be racked out, that’s why.

The Precision Guided Humor Assignment for this week is, “What should you bring with you to protest an anti-war rally?”

When you think about it for a second or three, that’s really a silly question. Who’s going to see your protest of the “protest”? Self-made idiots of the Loony Left Moonbat Brigade there to celebrate their braindead embrace of anti-war rhetoric, Mass Media Podpeople (also self-made idiots) or people who already agree that the other two classes of creatures that may once have been human are now devolved or replaced by Podpeople from the planet “Reality-Based Fantasia”. The first two classes of beings will not be impacted at all by your protest and the latter class have lives to live, people to feed, bills to pay, etc., and have little time for such foolishness.

If, however, you want to spend some time viewing barking moonbats in their natural habitat for pleasure or education, here are a few of the items you MUST take with you:

A good gas mask.  It’s the stench of unwashed bodies, you know.

MilitarypatchSome heavy-duty insect repellent. Lice, fleas, etc. on unwashed moonbats. (Oh, and the rest of the gear pictured might not be such a bad idea, either. Barking moonbats have been known to throw hissy-fits, and they scratch and bite something fierce.)

You might consider having one of these standing by, as well, a Mobile Topical Applicator and Inhabitant Delouser:
And even with a gas mask, you may well need one of these:barf-bag

Thanks to Bohemian Like You, we finally have a useful guide for Mass Media Podpeople BS warnings…

One down… four to go?  🙂

Roberts was confirmed by better than a 75% margin. Who revealed their petty partisanship and deepset moonbattery to vote against him? Only Democrats voted “No” and only the following Democrats

Akaka, Hawaii; Bayh, Ind.; Biden, Del.; Boxer, Calif.; Cantwell, Wash.; Clinton, N.Y.; Corzine, N.J.; Dayton, Minn.; Durbin, Ill.; Feinstein, Calif.; Harkin, Iowa; Inouye, Hawaii; Kennedy, Mass.; Kerry, Mass.; Lautenberg, N.J.; Mikulski, Md.; Obama, Ill.; Reed, R.I.; Reid, Nev.; Sarbanes, Md.; Schumer, N.Y.; Stabenow, Mich.

Note those names well: not one had a legitmate reason to vote against Roberts’ confirmation.  All were driven by political hackery, venality and barking moonbat ideology. If even one had raised an issue of substance, I’d not make such a claim, but since not one single word or written release by any one of those “No” votes reflected anything but political hackery, venality or barking moonbat ideology (or in bizarre cases such as Kerry, Kennedy and Reid, all three), I feel safe in saying that the above collection of poltroons needs an intimate introduction to the tender ministrations of Dr. Tarr and Mr. Fether. (Although I doubt even therapy by such renowned p-sych dumbologists could penetrate the layers of B.S. this list spews on a daily basis… )

Get out yer copy of “O Blessed Holy Caffeine Tree” (score here, practice track here 🙂 and sing along: it’s National Coffee day… again.

Christine, of Morning Coffee and Afternoon Tea, once again notes National Coffee Day.  Of course, she noted another coffee day in July, as well, and makes special note of coffee days in various other countries, so we can celebrate the Holy Brew on many occasions.  Heck, forget that.  I’m making Coffee Day a 365.25-day-per-year holiday.  A coupla cups and I’m in a celebratory mood, anyway.

Update already… heh—Kat of Keep the Coffee Coming has her Coffee Day post up, too, and she supplements it with a coupla songs, one from John McCutcheon and one from Lacy J. Dalton (and I agree, Kat, about the cream. 🙂

ACLU=All Criminal Libertines Union?

Could be.  All it takes is one example to demonstrate that the ACLU doesn’t care whether you are informed of registered sex offenders living near you but in fact wants such predators to live where they want in stealth mode. Well, I’ll stop at just two: _1_ _2_.

Seems fitting for a group that sides with men who seek to promote sex with boys. Also here and here.
