now this is my kind of general

oh, i can hear the bleeding hearts and hand wringers now. he's too aggressive... he's too mean... he's a KILLER

what am i talking about? check out this article over at MY WAY. as an aside, this is a manditory daily stop for news junkies. they have the top stories from 8 or 9 news services available without a bunch of junk popping up when you go visit.
back to my story
here's an american marine general, in front of an audience, and he has the balls to say
"Actually it's quite fun to fight 'em, you know. It's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people. I'll be right up front with you, I like brawling," Mattis said.

"You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil," Mattis said during a panel discussion. "You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them."

oh horrors. a military guy that likes to fight. what's next? a cop that likes busting bad guys? or a teacher that actually likes being in the classroom teaching your child?
we need more of these guys at the top, not less. get rid of the political generals, and put in some meat eaters. fights are fast and furious, and then they are over. no mamby pamby boo hooing about who might or might not be pissed about our kicking some bad guy's ass.

read the rest of the article here

in my attempts to at least acknowledge how and where i find things, i thank an old sparring partner rgj13 (that would be ryan) from my old but now long abandoned stomping grounds over at Radio Paradise. he suggested i find enough variety of inputs so that i wasn't a knuckle dragging single source nut bag. then he suggested MY WAY, and i've been a devoted visitor ever since. by the way, in my links section, i tagged RP as the best internet radio ever, and it still holds true. if you are of my political persuation, though, the comment boards just suck like a $1500.00 hoover vacuum. great music, toxic environment. sometimes i miss the exchanges, but this blog has widened my reach, and my contacts with the outside world. bloggers, thanks for visiting and commenting. especially those of you that disagree with me. i always learn something.

back to our regularly scheduled blog.

oh, before i go, the Daily Demarche posted a link to the waiter rant blog, with a comment that it has become his favorite non political blog. after visiting and reading, i absolutely agree. bothenook sez, check it out.

Dude you're cracking me up. I love the quote. "These guys ain't got no manhood left."
