This And That…

I’ve been collecting various news blurbs for the last few days. Between studying and preparing for a possible promotion, I have found much more than I have been able to write about. So, for the late day post today, I thought I would do a little catch up.

This wasn’t very encouraging. I guess boycotts aren’t enough anymore. GLSEN says “Rebel” against non-supporters. Several studies have shown that the gays and lesbians tend to initiate the violence and arguments at protests and marches. Unfortunately, it just looks like it’s going to get worse.
(…are they taking a cue from the Muslims?…make enough noise to force others to give you your way?…)

Meanwhile, just exactly what did the DEMOCRATS know about Foley? Flopping Aces had this report. And, Wild Bill had his two or three cents worth.
(…looks like the Republicans weren’t the only ones…what a surprise…but, ws it just election year politics?…)

Speaking of Democrats and politics, it looks like it may be all up to Hillary.
(…I’m still waiting to see who the Republicans can field to stand against either Sir Hillary or Osama Obama…)

Speaking of Liberal/Leftist crap…Want a little detail on the global warming bias and research tricks? Check out this post from Neo-Contastic

So what’s the deal with insurance and lawsuits anyway?
(…be honest…when was the last time you thought it out like this?…)

Have you ever wondered what Sharia law would look like? Well, here is a BBC report from Aceh—in Indonesia—that will give you a really good picture.

Now, here was something pretty novel. The government is Googling for intelligence information. Apparently it’s even been effective!
(…so, how long do you think that will last before the left rises up in indignation?…)

Finally, there was a post today at MilBlogs. There is someone special you should know about: Private First Class Ross A. McGinnis. Awarded the Silver Star, and submitted for the Medal of Honor, Pfc McGinnis gave his life to protect the other men in his vehicle on 04 December. A hero in every sense of the word.

Well, we at our house remember your cry—the cry of all fallen warriors:

“Tell them of us and say,
For their tomorrow, we gave our today.”
–The Kohima Epitaph–

We remember what you have given, Pfc McGinnis. And we say thank you for the tomorrows you have given others. May God give back to your families more than they have sacrificed and lost.

And, now, we dance In Memoriam.
