superior firepower

I'm an old-fashioned guy. I believe that it is better to fight and lose than to never fight at all. I also do not believe in the concept of a "fair" fight. If I'm facing some guy who is twice my size and seriously intends to kick my ass, I see nothing wrong with smashing a beer bottle over his head, kicking him in the nuts when he goes down and then beating him with a cue stick until the stick breaks.

If I miss with the beer bottle and he he ends up kicking my ass, well... that's just the way it goes sometimes. But you MUST show him that you are willing to fight. That attitude will work to keep most bullies off of your ass.

International diplomacy is no different. Rattling a saber is one thing, but whipping that thing out of the scabbard and whacking off a head is much more effective. That kind of action shows that you are serious. People see and learn.

"Don't Tread On Me."

That's the most magnificent motto I ever heard. It also MEANS SOMETHING to people who have secret desires to fuck with you. If they KNOW you're going to give them a fight, they are much more reluctant to pick one. And if they know you have the beer bottle and the cue stick and are WILLING TO USE THEM, they have even less enthuisam about picking that fight.

I believe that George Bush understands this simple concept. If you want a fight, you'll get one, but it won't be "fair" because we have superior firepower. We'll kick your ass all over the barroom floor. Is that what you want? If so, come get some.

If not, don't tread on me.


It seems no matter how far I travel into the blogsphere, I never fail to come across some blogger who has a link to you on his blog. Inevitibly they will refere to you as a "heavy hitter" .
I don't agree with you about Bush(it's easy to say don't tread on me when you know someone else is going to be doing the fighting. When it's someone else's blood who will flow regardless of whether they win or lose.), but I do agree your a "heavy hitter' who writes well. Maybe that's why every time I come across a link to you, I can't keep myself from clicking on it. Odds are 50/50 I won't agree with you, but I'll enjoy reading it anyway.

I have to love Wanda's reasoning power. I am sure Bush would love to go one on one with Osama but I don't think that is going to happen. I guess in her world the US is like the school yard bully but in fact we are more like the big friendly slow kid who everyone pushed around until he got pissed and beat the hell out of a bunch of punks.

Good point, James. They awakened the "Sleeping Giant". True in WWII and true today. Punch us, you better be able to punch real hard. Wanda, you make sense but don't think that because it's not Bush's blood that'll spill that its "easy" for a patriot to make the decision to go to war. Personally I'd rather spill my own blood anyday than a bunch of our nation's finest. But unfortunately it don't work that way. This is war on a global scale. War with the most noble cause, and it ain't oil. It's national security. My freedom, my kids, my way of life....and yours. Bush has made some courageous decisions. And like it or not, he is a man of his word. He did just what he said. My guess is there is no end in sight. We'll continue to chase them to the ends of the earth. As long as the fight is out there, it's not thankful. A-man.....preach on!

"Bring it on", assholes. Wanda, get a fucking brain, or some balls. Bush has both.

I'll go too, but "We got your back" works in lieu.. I just saw this sign on a big truck parked in a yard by a redneck highway in Idaho. Made me want to hollar, and rejoice.

Or as Sitting Bull said when Custer attacked, "Warriors, grab your weapons. It is a good day to die". Also, as some other guy said, "A life not worth dying for is not worth living for."

My [near-Black Miss America] 17 year old daughter's boyfriend just got back from Iraq. He's a Marine. He sent pictures of himself hovering over a land mine just unearthed, gooning for the camera, and was also visible in the ballyhooed mess hall bombing at Ramalla [?], pictured by the press. He will/can not admit he was there, but says he did not notice any cameras then.

He volunteered, obviously, after 9/11, which is also my daughter's birthday. She was 14 at the time and was really leaked that one of her teachers that day at school was crying from fear. Sounds like they have something important in common.

What do Liberals have in common? Ans., they are chicken-morons. I despise them. Their lives are in vain.

As to personal self-defense, I will also try to kill anyone who attacks me in an unprovoked way, since I must presume that's what they are trying to do to me. We'll have the trial later, not before, as Liberals/morons seem to think can be done.

Your post brings to mind one of my favorite Latin quotes:

"Nemo me impune lacessit."
(No one provokes me with impunity.)
-- Motto of the Crown of Scotland and of all Scottish regiments

I kinda lean toward "Oderint dum Metuant"

I'm a die-hard PC-Liberal-hating member of the VRWC, voted for W both times, and am damn glad he's there instead of Algor or John F'ing Kerry. I don't agree with everything W does, but I for sure agree the man has balls, and not all his own. He has help from someone above who has even bigger balls, IMHO, and he ain't ashamed to say so, to the confounding of the hand-wringing flower-smelling chattering class.
As in every generation, a few nut-jobs (Hitler, Mao, Stalin, Mussolini come to mind) arise and persuade the simple-minded that they are God and have the answers to everything and you better agree or you're toast. This time around it's the Islamofascists. They smacked the biggest guy they could find, and since the biggest guy (the U.S.of A.) happened to have someone with balls in charge, they got shelled. They wanted a fight, they got one alright, but it wasn't the Spanish pushover they expected.
Not even a Mexican stand-off. Only the technology of the Great Satan USA enables them to talk to each other from cave to cave without tin cans & string.
"Don't Tread On Me" indeed. We got Acidman's stinging nettles on our backs. In spades.

Fuckin' aye, man!

The next time a lefty compares Bush to Hitler, I'm gonna pull this:

"No, he's not Hitler, you idiot. He's just Gerhard Schroeder with bigger balls and a speech impediment."
