Hump Day Report: Home of the Free Because of the Brave!
ALOHA, ALL! It’s Veterans Day. GOD BLESS ALL WHO HAVE SERVED!!! I can think of no better way to honor them than by including Pete Hegseth’s latest, real-life, boots-on-the-ground report from Afghanistan. THIS is what a patriot looks like! Afghanistan Update #4: Giving Thanks BTW, the Marines just celebrated their 236th birthday. Here’s a great graphic: HolyCoast.com: Happy Birthday, USMC!
Check out this AWESOME Veterans Day Tribute from the band Madison Rising:
It’s countdown to the Super Committee deadline. What’s gonna happen? This is a no-brainer and it was from Day 1. Defense will be cut. Happy about that? While I’m sure certain left-wing zombies (and Ron Paul supporters) are saying “Far out, man….make love not war, ” it’s a disaster. Like I’ve said many times in the past several years, I don’t believe in coincidences anymore. Anything coming out of Washington is planned by some very devious individuals who only care about promoting their own agendas – the country be damned! You MUST watch this video from a Research Fellow at The Heritage Foundation. It puts it all in perspective regarding defense spending and how DoD has already made more than its “fair share” of cuts.

Still think the Super Committee will come together and sing Kumbaya? GOP accuses Democrats of breaking off debt talks in supercommittee – TheHill.com “Republicans have charged Democrats with breaking off talks on the deficit-reduction supercommittee less than two weeks before the panel’s deadline to reach a deal. The GOP accuses Democratic leaders of abruptly reining in their appointees after Republicans made a serious offer to reduce the deficit through tax reforms that would lower tax rates while eliminating or reducing tax deductions.”
Time for Perry to ride into the sunset. GOP Debate a Death Knell for Perry? | FrontPage Magazine “The two big takeaways from last night’s Republican presidential debate are universally-acknowledged: Rick Perry’s embarrassing gaffe probably puts the last nail in the coffin of his campaign and the sexual harassment allegations against Herman Cain have earned him huge sympathy from primary voters.”
More Cain stuff – be sure to read the Ann Coulter article! I wanna be her when I grow up…..
BTW, I’ve made up my mind who I think the GOP nominee should be. Any guesses? I’ll reveal at a later time. In my mind, this person is the clear choice to clean up the floor with B/B S/O (Barry/Barack Soetoro/0bama.)
Ho Ho Ho – How about another tax? Obama Couldn’t Wait: His New Christmas Tree Tax “President Obama’s Agriculture Department today announced that it will impose a new 15-cent charge on all fresh Christmas trees—the Christmas Tree Tax—to support a new Federal program to improve the image and marketing of Christmas trees.” A tax on Christmas trees to start a new campaign to promote Christmas trees. Brilliant.
Buckeyes blew it. (I HATE saying that!) Defeat of OH Issue 2 Means $1,468 More Per Taxpayer By 2015 “Matt Mayer of the Buckeye Institute has done the math on what a defeat of Issue 2 will cost Ohio’s taxpayers. Turns out it will cost taxpayers $1,468 more a year by 2015.”
Final Thought: “A committee is a group of the unwilling chosen from the unfit, to do the unnecessary.” Unknown Source
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
