Foreign Object Damage

Foreign Object Damage
This is an interesting commentary on Iraq. The poster believes the "speech" is bogus for several reasons he states at the end of the piece. I left a comment on this blog. I think the "speech" has some problems defining strategy in Iraq.

Expensive Ignorance.......

Shortcut to: 
I just argued this very thing recently as the basis behind a liberal mass media. In effect the "liberal" media is the effect of Ignorant journlists - the result of education that fails to address the issues Reese talks about in this artcle. (History - Economics - Basic Science) ..Vic (thanks to RG)

Movies in which we're the bad guys

Watch video clips of propaganda from Russia, DDR (East Germany), DPRK (North Korea), Iraq under Saddam, Iran, etc. which portrays USA as the bad guys. The Russian cartoon of a Stephen King techno-thriller is especially interesting. Click the country, video, blank screen.  This is from  Carl:

Sussex County 120MM Years Ago

Our own video team took the time to go back 120MM years ago to see how things looked around this part of NJ before the deer population exploded, and farmland preservation became a great concern of the taxpayers. Actually, this is an animation from Enjoy it. There are courses in animation taught at the local community college.

A McCain Dialogue

I am placing a recent dialogue about McCaine into the "COMMENTS" link just under this post. McCain has good qualities and also some huge liabilities from the point of view of conservatives. But IMHO - he may be the eventual candidate to against Hillary in 2008. Anyway it will be interesting to watch unfold.

Parkland Memorial Hospital ... illegal immigration

What an eye-opener! And, this is just ONE hospital and ONE industry. I do not think any forceful illegal immigration policy will be forthcoming for a long time with the new majority in congress. Look at the voter base that this largesse supports -- ie: "pays off" for when and if they are given amnesty and allowed to vote. PLUS all the support cash for ancillary and direct support to the hospital community for its work caring for the health issues of illegals. It is an industry with huge implications to job opportunities tied to the largesse. People with THOSE jobs will certainly not be eager to cut back on illegal immigration! They are essentially bought off with taxpayer dollars to support their own jobs through a liberal congress. I give you the direct SNOPES link because it helps to validate the article.

World War Two Google Earth

A tour of WWII Battles
Battle For Berlin
Mark Rolef made this video in October. The SKIRMISH fields in PA are often used for scenario games. A day at this is exhausting - so imagine what the REAL veterans of the Battle for Berlin went through! God Bless our Veterans. Your use of stock footage of WWII with your footage from the day, give this a sense of heritage - with the excitement of scenario combat. I was there for this day and I have to say, I really HATE that German tank! It took me out in a very painful way! Outstanding video, Mark. Keep them coming! For history buffs - may I suggest a book? "Armageddon - The Battle for Germany 1944-45". Thanks for the vid.

Why the Rebublicans lost Congress and Senate

MAINLY IT WAS IRAQ . IRAQ and IRAQ -- but also:

Dumb politicians. The R's have often showed how poor they are at explaining their policies and this was no exception. How come R's are so dumb about political strategy and painting their positions so they can be understood and D's are so good at creating positve perceptions for the muddled middle?
A. The Deficit was headed that way from the last half of Clinton's presidency when the 'bubble burst' but Dems continued to make hay out of it even after 9/11 which required 'super spending' by the govt. to jump start a dead patient (the economy). The corresponding tax cuts generated huge tax REVENUES to the government that eventually began to cut into the deficit. This has never been explained well by R's. Pictures - cartoons - editorials ... nothing really addressed very well how the economy was booming but would be DEAD without the tax cuts. Now you can expect tax increases with the D's and very likely a stalled economy - and LOWER tax revenues -- but under a Bush Presidency. Hello Hillary in 2008.
B. IRAQ - and Rumsfeld. HE became a lightning rod for the war protestors and I think he enjoyed it. Bush allowed the circuits to break (this election) before he would make any move to replace Rummy. A replacement for Rummy 3 to 6 months ago was all he needed to show he was listening and he wanted a new perspective. Bush is too loyal to a performing staff member even though the staff member is crushing the party from an undeserved but nevertheless effective rant from the left.
C. Chaney has been painted effectively as "the devil" by Dems and unfortunately his photographic persona plays well to the left who see him that way. Is he effective? Yes. Is he now irrelevant? Yes. He is a placeholder at the VP spot where someone else could be making strides toward the 2008 race. He should not have been on the ticket in 2004, but he could still find a graceful "out" for health reasons if he cared about the country ... and the R's chances in 2008.
D. Immigration was not on the front burner for the voters that made the difference here. If it had been, R's would still hold congress. InVitro fertilized eggs and blastomeres research was not on the front burner for those who chose to vote Dem. Gay marriage was not on the front burner for those who voted Dem. But these topics were manipulated by Dems to land in wedge positions to be argued by R's and thus took steam away from the R successes. R's are just really bad at making their case and are easily felled by wedge issues.

The port lookout is commenting on the scene of a B52 strike along the coast area which is much much more impressive than NGF explosions. Later in this sequence - a spotter has us take on a target that is moving. We expend 50 rounds - much to his surprise at the end when we note the toal rounds expended.
