Adios WKY Right Wing Radio 

Seems the owners of Oklahoma City radio station WKY, changed formats and axed all of their right wing talk show hosts. The ironic thing is the new format will be Spanish music. I would say I am sorry, but that would be a lie.

Good luck to ya boys. Hope you find work soon. Selling cars or flipping burgers, you know, something productive.



Happy Anniversary Sweet Baby O' Mine 

I can't believe it has been nine years. I can't believe you actually married me. I can't believe you stayed with me through all of my craziness, laziness and immaturity. I can't believe you gave me two beautiful children. I can't believe you give me a base of strength from which to draw that never waivers or condemns. I can't believe you are as beautiful today as the day we met.

I can't believe it but I am awfully grateful that it is all true.

I love you and I can't wait to see what the next nine years bring.

Although I conquer all the earth,
Yet for me there is only one city.
In that city there is for me only one house;
And in that house, one room only
And in that room, a bed.
And one woman sleeps there,
The shining joy and jewel of all my kingdom.



Back to Iraq 

Well, I am going back to Iraq in about 3 weeks. I will go over there and do my best to make the lives of the soldiers and civilians working there under dangerous and uncomfortable circumstances a little better. You would be surprised at the effect a warm shower or a working toilet has on the morale of the soldiers.

There are many people, especially conservatives, who have called me a war profiteer or a hypocrite for working in Iraq. I can't really explain my reasons for wanting to go back. Part of it is financial, part of it is a feeling of not completing my first obligation of one year.

The money is good but it is not much more than I would make here if you break it down to an hourly rate. The work week is 7 days, 12 hours per day unless things go wrong then you work until the work is completed. 84 hours a week minimum. 7 days a week in a hostile environment that is sometimes too cold, often too hot and always dirty and polluted.

I feel a need to go back that I can't explain. It has little to do with money. It is almost a feeling of service to the soldiers. Doing something tangible to make their lives better. Anyone can slap a $2 magnet on their car and say they support the troops but I believe deeds speak louder than words and the person who risks nothing has nothing to lose...or gain.

It is also a slap in the face to the chickenhawk conservatives; some unhealthy need to prove myself to the same idiots I can't stand. Call me an unpatriotic coward will you? I was there, where you? Even though I know nothing I do will ever satisfy the right wing whacko superiority complex (Kerry served in Vietnam but he is a coward, Bush drank and coked it up in the TANG and he is a hero) but it is more for me than them anyway.

I hope to make it back safely and in one piece. I hope my family will forgive my selfish need. I hope to make people's lives better over there, whether they be soldier, civilian or Iraqi and I hope beyond hope that what we do there now will ultimately have a positive outcome.

In closing, here is a picture of me from my last adventure posing with some soldiers we helped with some much needed supplies for their remote camp. You can tell I hate the troops can't you?



...and now it's time to say goodbye 

I have two kids, a wife and a full time job and I am just to tired to put in a lot of effort on this blog right now so I am going to shut her down. Although I have 20 - 30 page views per day, no one is commenting and without comments, it just ain't much fun.

So, I hope you enjoyed it and I made you think or laugh or, if you are a conservative, made you angry. It was pretty fun sometimes but pure drudgery lately.

Thanks for the support. See you in the funny papers.

The Conservative Fighter



It sure makes my plastic Rudolph seem inadequate. 

You know how some people go way too far with Christmas lights? Imagine living across the street from this guy.

A day that will live in gluttony. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

One side of my family celebrated tonight and the other side will celebrate again tomorrow. We finally split up the in-law/birth family Thanksgiving celebration into two separate days. Instead of rushing around and not being able to enjoy our meal, we now stuff ourselves at two locations over a two day period. Life is good.

I am thankful for my wonderful family and friends, our great country in which we can still disagree without blowing each other up, my fellow soldiers who follow orders and do the best job they can in dangerous, dirty and thankless situations and I am thankful for the two greatest inventions of all time; hot water and air conditioning without which we would all be stinkier, dirtier and more irritable.

Pass the potatoes and pour on the gravy.



Jean Schmidt - I'll get you my pretty!!! 

I love this graphic.

Jean Schmidt, for those who don't know, is the witch who called multiply decorated Vietnam Veteran and career marine, Jack Murtha, a coward on the house floor before crapping her pants at the outraged response and doing a cowardly CYA retraction.

Anyhoo, big hat tip to Inflatable Dartboard who has some awesome original graphics on the site.


Another Liberal Whacko Endorses Withdrawal 

...Oh wait a minute, my mistake, he is a retired three star General and highly respected member of the intelligence community.

Lt. General William Odom refutes 9 reasons we should stay.

Oh, those crazy cowards who actually served in the military and have real world experience in war. Why oh why won't they listen to the guys who had "other priorities" during times of war?



Saturday Night Live 

The president is a buffoon and the cast at SNL continue to do spot on impressions of him and other republican idiots, like Jean Schmidt.



What is it with the Bush's and Asia? 

Remember when the original Bush went to Japan and did the technicolor yawn in the lap of the Japanese Prime Minister?

Now Jr. is there and he doesn't look good. Too much sake? He looks like 10 pounds of hammered shit and he is slurring his words more than usual but in a rare press conference, Mr. Bush got flustered and tried to "cut and run" when asked some hard questions. When he tried to "escape", he retreated to a locked door and was temporarily stupefied. Fortunately someone came to his aid and directed him to the exit.

I love having a stooge for president.
