Here are a couple of links that will help you to make life better for our troopers. The first is fairly straightforward: You need to go to Bill O'Reilly's website
and take the O’Quiz. In collaboration with ATT, a trooper in Iraq will then be sent a 20-minute courtesy calling card, just because you logged on to take the test. It’s free, easy, and the quiz is something I routinely use to keep what’s left of my mind flexed to some degree about current events. Cookie reading is easy; you can't leave a greasy computer footprint on anyone's website without a trackback.
The second link, which will also aid our troops, is something I’ve been hoping for. Constant readers define me as a conservative Libertarian; we are not ready to challenge the Big Two-party system, so I’m once again looking to Republicans. John McCain is a RINO [Republican In Name Only], and being a war hero doesn’t necessarily translate well into being a viable leader of the civilized world’s last stand against heathen theocracy. Mitt Romney is okay, but civilization is at a crossroads, and “okay” is not good enough. Romney cannot stand up to the fire that the Democrat she-devil will breathe when the race draws nigh. America stands at a turning point of history, and the hand of the average voter is being forced by the premature declarations of those presidential candidates who sense disaster looming.
Since my party is not yet ready for the ultimate political run, until the Kennedy Amnesty-for-Illegal-Aliens Bill kills the Republican Party, I am much enthused that Fred Dalton Thompson has thrown his hat into the proverbial ring. Most definitely I'm with Fred
. President Reagan proved that being an actor is not a disqualifying credential, and the former Senator from Tennessee has more integrity in his movie-making road shows than so-called “serious” politicians have in all the endorsements of Hollyweird’s finest. I have children of service age; I will trust this TV actor more than any trial lawyer from a neighboring state—despite his pricey haircut—to decide what’s right for my children. I don’t want Socialists like Hillary running things, and I damn sure don’t want shyster lawyers like John Edwards to step anywhere close to the controls for spaceship Earth. What scares me to death, more than any sci-fi scenario or alternate future a’la’
Phillip K. Dick and The Man in the High Castle
, is that some otherwise clear-thinking American citizens are going to vote against George Bush. Their thinking against Bush is so deeply influenced that they will regard the death of the next soldier in Iraq’s fields as nothing more than a political milepost to be held against him.
I am posting links on my sidebar as I can figure the template out. You are well served to follow my hyper-links in this text.
T-shirt Hell also has some breathtakingly offensive stuff going on. They have some amazingly vulgar things to say about the late Rev. Falwell, but their nasty outlook keeps us grounded in what the rest of the world thinks. That link is posted on the sidebar, if you want to buy a shirt and be a public nuisance. Democrats operate off tee-shirt slogans, so those of you on the Left will feel right at home. I don't endorse all their creative stances with the shirts, but they say what we think. Like Rev. Falwell, the owner of that site says things right or wrong, and sticks by them.
Buy a tee-shirt if you're so moved. Take the "O'Quiz" because it's an extremely helpful thing for troopers who'd like to call home. If you can see past the rhetoric of those who have already lined up for George Bush's job as leader of the civilized world, go visit Fred. Someone much wiser than me has pointed it out: We are thinking of the next election; the jihadists
are thinking for the next 100 years on how to defeat and kill us.
