Saddle Up

It’s time again to jump back in the saddle, and send a few kind supportive words out to the men humping the hills.  This time in Afghanistan.

The gang over at Blackfive have the details if you want to delve into them.

If you don’t need all the justification, put your thoughts down and send them along to skysoldiers173rd@gmail.com

So even though it is an Army unit, and all that inter-service rivalry thing is driven into my psyche, put that support down in an e-mail, or a card and get it out there!

Oblivious Cartoon

Go here to see the accompanying explanation for the cartoon.

FISA Expiration

AQI Cartoon

I found a new source for political cartoons.  Most of you may already know of it, redplanetcartoons.com.  I think I will repost a few of their items from time to time.  Here is my first shot at this.

USMC AQI Dems

Haditha Marines

Okay folks, another “bleg” to hang out there.  A couple of our own are running into the political gauntlet of the Pentagon and could use your help.  Here’s the link.

Iwo Jima

I ran across an interesting post over at the “Sandgram” today.  I had been neglecting this blog for a while, and I missed this article when it came out.  Go read the story.  I wish, that I had the opportunity to make an impact like this.

Blonde Joke of The Day

I just couldn’t resist this one.

A blonde hurried into the emergency room late one night with the tip of her index finger shot off.

‘How did this happen?’ the emergency room doctor asked her.

‘Well, I was trying to commit suicide,’ the blonde replied.

‘What?’ sputtered the doctor. ‘You tried to commit suicide by shooting off your finger?’

‘No, Silly,’ the blonde said, ‘first I put the gun to my chest, and then I thought, I just paid $6,000.00 for these implants. I’m not shooting myself in the chest.’

‘So then?’ asked the doctor.

‘Then I put the gun in my mouth, and I thought, ‘I just paid $3,
000.00 to get my teeth straightened. I’m not shooting myself in the mouth.’

‘So then?’ asked the doctor.

‘Then I put the gun to my ear, and I thought: ‘This is going to make a loud noise. So I put my finger in my other ear before I pulled the trigger.’
