Too Secure

At work, we (and by "we", I mean "I") often have a saying that we've secured ourselves into ineffectiveness. Meaning, our computers are locked down so tightly, we can hardly get anything accomplished. Downloading photos from the official camera can take 2-3 people, different computers, and utilization of a compact disc instead of the super-easy USB cord accompanying the camera.

And let's not explore the internet lockdown.

So, along the lines of making us "too secure", please take a moment and read this posting.

Press One for English

I was, of course, hoping to embed this video into the blog, but seems like the producers of the video don't want it embedded.


Here's a link. Now, I like the song, if not the over-sung vocals... Towards the end, it sounds a bit like border-line screeching, but that's just oversinging the song.

But, enjoy the video.

(And, I claim NO responsibility for the lack of vocabulary demonstrated by some in the Comment section.

Operation Arrowhead Ripper

From where I sit, I have no greater access to information than most of you reading this (and let's be honest, by the counters, there aren't that many coming to my corner of the world.)

Anyway, this shows great promise. It seems that the gloves are off and our Soldiers are being unleashed. Fewer restrictions.

In other words, our Soldiers are being allowed to fight as Soldiers.

Wish I could be there to help support the fight.

Let's continue to pray for our Soldiers, and that the enemy either has the brains to surrender OR at least die quick deaths. And civilians... please stay down or away.

The Surge Has Failed

Yes, it must be admitted. After about five months, we need to face facts.

The DNC had announced a surge of Democrats to Congress, with the stated mission of turning things around, and making progress that had not been achieved in the several years leading up to the decision.

It had been hoped by many that this "surge", rushing so many new Democrats into the troubled halls of Congress, would bring about peace and prosperity. Alas, it has not done so and many of the benchmarks that had been set to demonstrate "success".

Cries are getting louder over the incompetence of Generals Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi... their failures to achieve the goals are leading to calls for their replacement...

How many more bills must die in committee? When will there be a new plan to deal with the Republican "insurgency" that is proving such a challenge for them to overcome???

Just curious...

Ban This Chemical NOW!!!

This was sent to me... Penn & Teller, besides being great comedic magicians, often produce intriguing commentary videos.

Take a look at this one, for example...

Yes, it's an old joke that often makes it's way around the Net, but... these are real people.

Would you have signed (I hope not)? Do you know people who would (I'm sure)?

A Creative Approach to Remind Whom We're Fighting

Michelle Malkin and her crew at Hot Air have put together an excellent video that captures eloquently the people we're fighting... and what they do and how they approach this war and our culture.

Take a look... watch the images and listen to the words... It's worth it. Here.
