  We have a new Wall, it is CRAFTS, Thank you [BirdsNest] for your suggestion.

   Lonestar Jack  What is the difference between a white policeman killing a black criminal in self defense and a black terrorist killing a defenseless white woman?

One has all the black Federal officials and the president jumping up and down looking for a microphone to make outlandish rants and the other doesn't even rate a off handed comment by any black government officials including out outstanding black president.

It seems to me that there is an automatic immunity from comments if there is a white victim and a black or muslim criminal.

   MeiDei  In it's place here's a futuristic look at what is evolving in the world of medicine.

New casts can be printed with a 3D printer, are lighter, more comfortable and just as strong.

   Wrightwinger  Stormy, imagine a bucket of sand with a hole in the bottom. Now add some glue to a board in a pattern of your choosing. Pour on some sand, add some more glue, more sand, more glue, over and over until buried in the sand is the shape of a bowl, Allow to dry, pour off the extra sand, and behold your bowl. The chemistry is more complex, but the idea is there.

   MeiDei  Buzz rightly called attention to the sign posted as being photo-shopped. For that reason I deleted it and have let the source of it, who will be mortified, know it to be a hoax. It's good when we work together for truth. A round of applause for OldBuzzard.

   Safetydude  I guess this should be on the Militaria page...the killing machine of the Gulf War is going to be allowed to continue doing what it was designed to do; kill America's enemies wherever they try to hide.

   Balogreene  Because I make my living writing and illustrating Technical Manuals for the Army, I like to hear this. One or two of the three I am working on are already tasked for more than just the army. The third should be also, but, it is a harder sell. We are selling surveillance equipment of all kinds, I see a lot of civilian uses for it, but, who knows what is in the mind of bureaucrats?

   StormCnter  I know there's a lot of talk about a SCOTUS appointment, but Holder is dragging a criminal contempt indictment. I don't see how he can even think about the Supreme Court under that circumstance.

   TexasRose  It's on how crazy it is that we are expected to view a man as a woman if he feels like he is one or vice versa. Progressives do not help these people but they use these people to tear down our country.

   Gerty  This was a sad reading.

While some may take pleasure in reading the sensational headlines or gloat in the strides made by man in the control and expression of his sexuality, some of us differ.

It is sad to see mankind use its God-given intelligence to thwart nature and its laws. No matter what form of life it is; no matter what stage of life it finds itself in; no matter what it thinks or how it behaves---Nature will have the final say in its DNA!

Live with it.

   Alice  L'shanah tovah back to the staff and to Ldotters who celebrate Rosh Hashanah! Since my husband and I moved away from the Orthodox neighborhood to go to the country a couple of years ago, we had lost track of this joyous time of year for Jews. May it be a beautiful and sweet celebration and coming year.

   Gram77  I pretty much stay away from comments concerning politics, but after I saw on Lucianne the photograph of the coffee cup salute to the Marines I was speechless and angry. What must have been going through the minds of those Marines at that moment. Makes me so sad.
September 24 at 10:00 EST .

   Fireball27  Makes me more than "sad". It makes me MAD!!! And what makes me even madder, is that there are so many liberals that excuse this. These people have no respect for anyone, even themselves.

   Safetydude  Gram,

I don't think there is anything particularly political about his's a perfect illustration of the arrogance and lack of respect the CIC has for "his" troops.

I can almost get past the coffee cup, it's just another way of him extending his middle finger but, for me as a someone who retired from the military, there is something fundamentally wrong when someone who has never earned the honor of rendering a hand salute is able to do it.

I felt the same way about Clinton and his smug smile when he rendered the salute.

   Gerty  Just another way of thumbing his nose at the United States!

I wish there were some way to publically counteract all the indignities he and his family seem intent on showing us. I wish we had more Rush's around.

How about a daily TV segment on Fox News showing a specific slur and explaining how it is an insult?!? Might also serve as a teaching tool since we don't teach our history in school anymore.

   Belwhatter  Col.Oliver North suggested a new marine salute - all Marines carry a flat paper cup in their breast pocket to be used when appropriate in CiC's presence.

   Safetydude  As much as I respect LtC North I think that's a very bad idea. Uniformed military personnel are just that; uniform.

Regulations define the uniform, how it is to be worn and any accoutrements that go with it, or on it.

Disregard that to show disrespect for the CIC is no different than BHO's bad bahavior and his lack of respect for his office and the military.

We were always told: "salute smartly, and carry on".

   Lonestar Jack  He wasn't wearing a uniform.
So it becomes saluting a person and this particular person has not earned a return salute.
There is no sincerity in Obama's salute anyway.

   Bettijo  My father was career army--served in WWII and Korea. I respect the salute and the uniform; obviously our CiC does not!

What I would like to know, however, is where are the "Greenies"? You, know, the people trying to eliminate Styrofoam? They should also be up in arms about the example Obozo is setting.

Rattlesnake logic

As long as we insist on maintaining the "moral high ground" we will NEVER win the war on terrorism. We're in a conflict in which we absolutely insist on playing by the rules against a maniacal group who have no rules.

After the Boston bombing the news media has spent days and weeks trying to determine why these men did what they did. They want to know what America did to make these brothers so angry with us. They want to know why these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible. The media is in a tizzy about this new era of homegrown radicals, and about why they could live among us and still hate us.

A friend of mine from Texas explained it all to me: Here in west Texas I have rattlesnakes on my place, living among us. I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch. I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch. I have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the driveway. In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I encounter. I kill rattlesnakes because I know a rattlesnake will bite me and inject me with poison. I don’t stop to wonder why a rattlesnake will bite me; I know it will bite me because it's a rattlesnake and that's what rattlesnakes do. I don’t try to reason with a rattlesnake, I just kill it.

I don’t try to get to know the rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me. I just kill them. I don’t quiz a rattlesnake to see it I can find out where the other snakes are, because (a ) it wont tell me, and (b ) I already know they live on my place. So, I just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one.

I don’t look for ways I might be able to change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake...I just kill it. Oh, and on occasion, I accidentally kill a rat snake because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the time. Also, I know, for every rattlesnake I kill, two more are lurking out there in the brush. In my lifetime I will never be able to rid my place of rattlesnakes. Do I fear them? No! Do I respect what they can do to me? Yes! And because of that respect I give them the fair justice they deserve.... I kill them!

Maybe as a country we should start giving more thought to the fact that these jihadists' are just like rattlesnakes, and act accordingly!

I love this country; it's the damn government I'm afraid of.

Safetydude gave me this as a possible source....
