Good morning class. It's time for today's geography lesson. First, Mr Noonan, spit out that gum. Thank you.
Now let's continue.
The American roots of my family tree went planted in the 1600's. Plenty of immigrants from the four corners of the world have been added over the centuries.
Jefferson Said - "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
The founders also thought Matters of War and Peace were too grave to be left to the executive.
My family tree has been feeding the tree of liberty since the tree was planted. I'm quite certain I'm not alone. Some families have long histories of tending to the tree of liberty, others have a long history of living in its shade.
Once again our great Congress is debating matters of War and Peace. The most solemn duty of Congress.
The Chairman of the House of Representatives has decided that matters of War and Peace should be decided not on the merits or a careful examination of the facts but thru political bribery.
Whatever the outcome of the vote...many will die. Will they gives their lives for the Tree of Liberty..or will they Give their lives for 218 Congressman who took a bribe?
Because the Air Force has felt the need to routinely scratch their sexual harassment policy directly onto my eyeballs, I'm will refrain from commenting on the looks/physical appearance of a fellow airman. However I will repeat the standard Air Force PR line here: The Air Force has an LT competing in the Miss America pagent.
Kelly George, a U.S. Air Force second lieutenant and deputy chief of Public Affairs at Little Rock AFB, Ark., competed in Hollywood, Calif., March 19 in the preliminary rounds of the Miss USA contest. The Miss USA contest will air live on NBC March 23 at 8 p.m. CST. Kelly George was selected as Miss Arkansas USA Oct. 28.
You can download a full image by clicking on the pic. Though because the Air Force has mandated that I have no opinion on the physical appearance of LT George, I have no idea why you would want to do that.
So I guess the question here is, which pilot from LRAFB will she end up marrying?
Part II of my narrative from Saturday's protest is up.
Johnny Rotten makes a cameo appearance.
Yes, it’s in Powerpoint. (see the rest here)
FT. STEWART, Ga. -- In a remote area of this sprawling military base, soldiers are preparing for a mission to Iraq that has become all too familiar.Georgia is famous for its red clay, and I can understand someone who's never actually been there thinking the whole state is built on a foundation of just that. But I've spent a bit of time at Ft Stewart, down in the Savannah area on the Georgia coast. Marshes are everywhere, but the predominant "soil" (as with most coastal regions) is a dusty sort of sand, grey in color, much like the dust of Iraq (although the mud that lingers after the rain isn't quite the same...).
Cracked Georgia red clay simulates the dusty deserts in Iraq. A make-believe village called Medina Wasl, occupied by Iraqi-Americans acting as townspeople, stands amid pine trees.
But the veteran soldiers undergoing the training know this makeshift battleground is far from the real thing. They have been to Iraq at least once already, and with each deployment, the danger of war becomes more intense and their family life at home more strained.
The Ft Stewart ranges extend well inland, and I haven't traveled every inch of them, but I'm not sure there's any red clay anywhere. Can anyone state emphatically if there is?
The most outspoken critics of the $124 billion wartime spending bill in the House are facing withering support in their fight to defeat it.
California Democratic Reps. Maxine Waters and Lynn Woolsey said that many of their liberal colleagues were caving under pressure from Democratic leaders who, according to at least one congressman, have threatened to block requests for new funds for his district.
Waters said that she and other opponents of the spending measure had entered the weekend with 20 to 25 members on their side but that they had suffered "a lot of damage" as Democratic leaders aggressively urged members to support the bill.
Vowing to step up her efforts to hold the opposition, Waters said it was clear that Democratic leaders were mounting an all-out whip effort beyond the earlier informal surveying by Democratic Whip James Clyburn (S.C.).
"This is a vote of conscience," Waters said. "Jim Clyburn said he was doing an assessment, so that's what I was doing. Now that he's whipping, I'm going to start whipping."
Clyburn disputed her assertion. "That's not what she told me," he said. "I beg to differ that there's anybody whipping against this bill."
