The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.
When feeding Kooks and Anti-Americans
I suggest a potato gun.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

Military Jumper, Diver, Motorcycle Rider, Air Traffic Control and Demolitions Man. I build furniture and cabinets and can frame, roof, wire, plumb and finish a house. Can weld steel, drive heavy equipment, build pole barns and mortared rock walls. Have written one bad novel and one brilliant thesis. And I play the guitar.

A Homeless Shelter Maybe... But A Nuclear Submarine?

The latest and last Seawolf Class Nuclear sub will be named afterJimmy Carter. I don't get it. I was in the military when he was dismantling us in the face of an overwhelming Soviet threat. I remember being told that if the Soviets bolted across the Fulda Gap, we'd get our asses pinned against the English Channel if the reinforcements didn't arrive in time. (I also remember the leftists telling us that the "march" of Leninist Socialism was inevitable.) I remember "national malaise", the misery index and 13% inflation. During the 1980 Presidential Campaign Ronald Wilson Reagan said:
A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. And a recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his.*

Jimmy went on to headline for Habitat for Humanity - a worthwhile charity that I support. One that makes the recipients invest time and effort in construction as part of the program.
Jimmy qualified in Nuke Subs. Perhaps he spent too much time thinking about nuclear firestorms. But the fact is that he became a big wuss about defense. Who knows where we'd be today if he'd won in 80'. Probably boycotting the Olympics over the Soviet annexation of Japan.
He gave us peace in the Middle East through the Camp David Accords, a Nuclear North Korea through a technology for empty promises deal (our technology, their empty promises) and a pungent Caribbean dish called "Haiti Aristide"

Perhaps we should christen it The Jimmy Carter Home for the Incontinent.
