Or, as they’re calling it now, Syfy.
Hat tip- n2l.
Today is a day of mixed emotions.
Sadness for all those who sacrificed their lives for this great nation, and pride in honoring them for doing so.
They gave us all of their tomorrows and we are blessed by them.
I will never forget what the many men and women have given us. All should.

Early in my sales career, I was driving down Hwy 49, somewhere between Jackson and Hattiesburg, listening to the AM talk channel. Windshield time is one of those things that salesmen both curse and love at the same time. But, that’s a story for a different day. On this day in the pre-cell phone era of the late 80′s, listening to talk radio was a regular activity for me. As I listened, I wondered where the regular guy, Michael Jackson was.
Some new guy was on. He was good. Real good. Funny, smart, pompous (in a humorous way), confident in his conservatism, and absolutely comfortable behind the radio microphone, Rush Limbaugh became a part of my week, and I was, in short order, hooked.
And, even though windshield time hadn’t become something to actually look forward to, it had become something bearable during the middle of the work day.
Chances are, you probably remember the first time you heard Rush Limbaugh on the radio, too.
I received my copy of Zev Chafets new biography, Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One yesterday. (thanks, Christy)
I’m kind of hoping it rains all weekend so I won’t feel guilty about spending the time reading instead of being outside enjoying BBQ, camping, and tubing down the Bogue Chitto River. Kind of.
Frankly, though, rain or shine, I’m looking forward to getting started on this one, and I’ll have a report for you sometime next week.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

The crisis continues …….
Did you see Joe Wiesenthal’s one-word reaction to Dow theorist Richard Russell in today’s Business Insider?
Do your friends a favor. Tell them to “batten down the hatches” because there’s a HARD RAIN coming. Tell them to get out of debt and sell anything they can sell (and don’t need) in order to get liquid. Tell them that Richard Russell says that by the end of this year they won’t recognize the country. They’ll retort, “How the dickens does Russell know — who told him?” Tell them the stock market told him.
It was just one year ago that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi accused the CIA of lying in the “waterboarding kerfluffle”
“I wasn’t briefed, I was informed that somebody else had been briefed about it.”
Of course she knew. All of this happened before Howard Dean poisoned the well with his anti-war Presidential campaign in 2004.
They all knew.
Recall this from Chuck Schumer on “torture.”
One year ago, Miss Pelosi called for a truth commission to get to the bottom of things, but the only truth for the Speaker it seems, is to bury this episode as deeply as possible down the memory hole.
Grim milestone indeed.
More insanity from Pelosiville
About the recent reports of “tar balls” washing up on the barrier islands of Mississippi and Alabama ….
“Very sparsely scattered, small tar balls” were found in recent days on the beaches of pristine barrier islands off the Mississippi Gulf Coast and on the mainland, said Dan Turner, a spokesman for Gov. Haley Barbour.
A relative of mine who works at the MS DEQ reports some interesting findings from the coast.
As it turns out, the “tar balls” were actually WHALE POOP.
The crisis continues …
A cartoon appeared some time ago in the International Herald Tribune showing George Bush lying on a couch at his psychiatrist’s office with his back to the good doctor. The psychiatrist is hurling darts at a Bush dartboard, and Bush saying, “You know doctor, sometimes I have the feeling that nobody in the world likes us”.
Instead of George Bush we now have Barack Obama, on the same couch and that’s where the similarity ends. . Today, with Barack Obama as President, whose popularity is on the same level as that of Jack the Ripper America is still ‘unloved’, the victim of it’s own arrogance, it’s ‘better than thou’ attitude and the mistaken idea that the whole world is their playground and every other nation on earth is a ‘Banana Republic’. It is no wonder that when traveling overseas from Canada, one is advised to pin a Canadian flag on one’s clothing so as to indicate that you are a Canadian and not an American.
To be fair with Obama, he isn’t responsible for the American superiority complex, it has plagued past administrations but never has American esteem sunk as low as when Obama bowed before the Saudi king, tried to appease the Muslim world with his grandiose Cairo visit which caused more distrust, alienated Europeans and generally showed that he wasn’t capable of placing the United States of America in the forefront of world affairs.
Israel has absorbed the brunt of Obama’s anger by not succumbing to American demands that would virtually dismember Israel. Israel, the only democratic nation in the Middle East and one of America’s staunchest allies has had to bear the insults of an inept administration. One can ask why has American policy changed so drastically toward Israel with Obama’s ascension to the Presidency? Why has he chosen advisors with known communist and leftist affiliations to advise him on matters crucial, not only to Israel but to United States generally. So here is what Obama has said in referring to Israel.
Speaking to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, he would not allow Iran to acquire nuclear arms, and that Jerusalem would remain the undivided capital of Israel.
“Let me be clear, Israel’s security is sacrosanct. It is non-negotiable. The Palestinians need a state that is contiguous and cohesive and that allows them to prosper. But any agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognized and defensible borders. Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.”
It is well known that the American efforts to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear arms have been a dismal failure. But whether Israel lives or dies does not only depend on Iran but on the support of the United States, which has been backsliding from the beginning of Obama’s administration.
The announcement of 1600 homes to be erected in East Jerusalem is a decoy. The outcry by Vice-President Biden and Foreign Secretary Clinton is shameful and uncalled for. It once more proves to the world that what Obama says and what he does has no relevance.
There is no such animal as ‘land for peace’, not even ‘peace for peace’, as far as the Palestinians are concerned. There strings are being pulled by the Saudis and Iran. The Saudis in turn have a very good friend in the White House whose chain they can yank at will.
Israel has a problem with the Palestinians, one that may or may not be able to be worked out between them. Palestinian demands have been one sided and Israel concessions haven’t moved them one iota.
No matter what happens, it’s time for Israel to assert its independence and Obama to get off Israel’s back and let history take its course.
I wonder if Billy Ayers is willing to apply his same definition of terrorism to the Times Square wannabe bomber..
William Ayers says his organization, the Weather Underground, was not a terrorist organization because they never “killed people.”
Neither did the Times Square Jihadi. Or the Detroit Underwear Bomber… or even Richard Reid, for that matter..

I am in the process of shutting down the community website “Red Nation.”
If any of y’all have any blog posts, pictures, videos, etc that you want to save, I ask that you get them in the next few weeks.
Ning – the hosting site – has decided to begin charging for their platform, and “RN” just doesn’t draw enough traffic to justify the expenditure. Their charges will begin in July, and I expect to have the site shut down before then.
Any questions or comments, please feel free to shoot me an email, or comment below.
Just breaking on Fox News Channel, Federal authorities have identified a “person of interest” in the attempted terrorist attack in Times Square.
He has been described as a naturalized US citizen from Pakistan.
