MARINE'S VIEW OF AFGHANISTAN--
  
             
From The Sandpit... 

A very interesting read, a Marine's View of what is really going on.  This young man is articulate and has a flare for colorful language, and descriptive prose,  Scorpions, Chiggers & Sand Fleas.  It’s a great letter, a must read for every American citizen.

From a Recon Marine in Afghanistan:    From the Sand Pit 
 
        

              It's freezing here.  I'm sitting on hard cold dirt between rocks and shrubs at the base of the Hindu Kush Mountains, along the Dar'yoi Pamir River, watching a hole that leads to a tunnel that leads to a cave.  Stake out, my friend, and no pizza delivery for thousands of miles. I also glance at the area around my ass every ten to fifteen seconds to avoid another scorpion sting.

I've actually given up battling the chiggers and sand fleas, but the scorpions give a jolt like a cattle prod. Hurts like a bastard. The antidote tastes like transmission fluid, but God bless the Marine Corps for the five vials of it in my pack. The one truth the Taliban cannot escape is that, believe it or not, they are human beings, which means they have to eat food and drink water. That requires couriers and that's where an old bounty hunter like me comes in handy.

I track the couriers, locate the tunnel entrances and storage facilities, type the info into the hand held, and shoot the coordinates up to the satellite link that tells the air commanders where to drop the hardware. We bash some heads for a while, and then I track and record the new movement. It's all about intelligence. We haven't even brought in the snipers yet. These scurrying rats have no idea what they're in for. We are but days away from cutting off supply lines and allowing the eradication to begin. But you know me; I'm a romantic. I've said it before and I'll say it again: This country blows, man. It's not even a country. There are no roads, there's no infrastructure, there's no government.
    
This is an inhospitable, rock-pit shit-hole ruled by eleventh century warring tribes. There are no jobs here like we know jobs. Afghanistan offers only two ways for a man to support his family, join the opium trade or join the army.  That's it. Those are your options. Oh, I forgot, you can also live in a refugee camp and eat plum-sweetened, crushed beetle paste and squirt mud like a goose with stomach flu, if that's your idea of a party. But the smell alone of those 'tent cities of the walking dead' is enough to hurl you into the poppy fields to cheerfully scrape bulbs for eighteen hours a day. 

I've been living with these Tajiks and Uzbeks, and Turkmen and even a couple of Pashtus, for over a month-and-a-half now, and this much I can say for sure: These guys, are Huns, actual, living Huns.  They LIVE to fight.  It's what they do.  It's ALL they do. They have no respect for anything; not for themselves, their families, or for each other.  They claw at one another as a way of life. They play polo with dead calves and force their five-year-old sons into human cockfights to defend the family honor. Just Huns, roaming packs of savage, heartless beasts who feed on each other's barbarism. Cavemen with AK-47's. Then again, maybe I'm just a cranky young bastard. I'm freezing my ass off on this stupid hill because my lap warmer is running out of juice, and I can't recharge it until the sun comes up in a few hours. Oh yeah! You like to write letters, right?  Do me a favor, Bizarre. Write a letter to CNN and tell Wolf and Anderson and that awful, sneering, pompous Aaron Brown to stop calling the Taliban "smart".  They are not smart.

I suggest CNN invest in a dictionary because the word they are looking for is "cunning". The Taliban are cunning, like jackals, hyenas, and wolverines. They are sneaky and ruthless, and when confronted, they are cowardly. They are hateful, malevolent parasites who create nothing and destroy everything else.
 

Smart? Bullshit! Yeah, they're real smart. Most can't read, but they've spent their entire lives listening to Imams telling them about only one book (and not a very good one, as books go).  They consider hygiene and indoor plumbing to be products of the devil.  They're still trying to figuring out how to work a Bic lighter. Talking to a Taliban warrior about improving his quality of life is like trying to teach an ape how to hold a pen. Eventually he just gets frustrated and sticks you in the eye with it.

OK, enough. Snuffie will be up soon, so I have to get back to my hole. Covering my tracks in the snow takes a lot of practice, but I'm good at it.
 
 
Please, I tell you and my fellow Americans to turn off the TV sets and move on with your lives. The story line you are getting from CNN and other news agencies is utter bullshit and designed not to deliver truth but rather to keep you glued to the screen so you will watch the next commercial. We've got this one under control. The worst thing you guys can do right now is sit around analyzing what we're doing over here. You have no idea what we're doing, and you really don't want to know. We are your military, and we are only doing what you sent us here to do. 
From a Jack Recon Marine in Afghanistan, Semper Fi.

"Freedom is not free, but the U.S. Marine Corps is paying most of your share".
Send this to YOUR FRIENDS so that people there will really know what is going on over here. 
  
God Bless America. 
  
PS: Why would any civilized country want to bring these barbarians into their cities or states. To do so is total suicidal insanity!  

Fwd: I used to be a normal man!


Subject: Fwd: I used to be a normal man!
As a man, I used to think I was a regular person, but I was born white, which now, whether I like it
or not, makes me a racist & responsible for slavery
 
I am a fiscal & moral conservative, which by today's standards, makes me a fascist because I plan
& support myself.
 
I went to High School, worked through college, got a degree & have held a job.  I am not here
because I earned it, but because I was advantaged.
 
I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe.
 
I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class & ally of big business.
 
I am not a Muslim, which now labels me as an infidel.
 
I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which makes me a member of the vast NRA gun lobby.
 
I am older than 65 & retired, making me a useless old man who doesn't understand Facebook.
 
I think & I reason, so I doubt what main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.
 
I am proud of my heritage & our inclusive American culture, making me a xenophobe.
 
I value my safety & that of my family, & I appreciate the police & the legal system, making me a
right-wing, cop loving extremist.
 
I believe in hard work, fair play, & fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which
today makes me an anti-socialist.
 
I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort - not freedom of outcome or subsidies which
must make me a borderline sociopath.
 
I believe in the defense & protection of America for & by all citizens, now making me a militant.
 
I AM A VETERAN…I am proud of our flag, what it stands for, & the many who died to let it fly, so I stand & salute
during our National Anthem, taking me back where I started - I must be a racist.
 
Please help me come to terms with the new me because I'm just not sure who I am anymore!
 
I thank my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, newfound changes to my thinking!
I just can't imagine or understand what's happened to me so quickly! Funny - it all took place over
the last 7 or 8 years!

If all this nonsense wasn't enough to deal with, now I don't even know which
restroom to use, & I gotta go..........FREQUENTLY!!!

Fwd: Fw: Every Democrat vice presidential nominee



Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school.
 
Barack Obama was a lawyer. Michelle Obama was a lawyer
Hillary Clinton was a lawyer. Bill Clinton was a lawyer.
John Edwards is a lawyer. Elizabeth Edwards was a lawyer.
Look at leaders of the Democrat Party in Congress:
Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer is a lawyer.
Ex-Senator Harry Reid is a lawyer.
 
The Republican Party is different.
 
President Trump is a businessman.
President Bush 1 and 2 were businessmen.
Vice President Cheney is a businessman.
President Eisenhower was a 5 star General Officer.
The leaders of the Republican Revolution:
Newt Gingrich was a history professor.
Tom Delay was an exterminator.
Dick Armey was an economist.
Ex-House Minority Leader Boehner was a plastic manufacturer.
The former Senate Majority Leader Bill First is a heart surgeon
 
Who was the last Republican president who was a lawyer?
 
Gerald Ford, who left office 31 years ago and who barely won the Republican nomination as a sitting president, running against actor Ronald Reagan in 1976. The Republican Party is made up of real people doing real work, who are often the targets of lawyers.
 
This is very interesting. I never thought about it this way.
 
The Democrat Party is made up of lawyers. Democrats mock and scorn men who create wealth, like Trump, Bush and Cheney, or who heal the sick like First, or who immerse themselves in history like Gingrich. The Lawyers Party sees these sorts of people, who provide goods and services that people want, as the enemies of America.
 
And, so we have seen the procession of official enemies, in the eyes of the Lawyers Party, grow.
 
Against whom do Hillary and Obama rail?....Pharmaceutical companies, oil companies, hospitals, manufacturers, fast food restaurant chains, large retail businesses, bankers, and anyone producing anything of value in our nation.
 
This is the natural consequence of viewing everything through the eyes of lawyer.  Lawyers solve problems by successfully representing their clients, in this case the American people. Lawyers seek to have new laws passed, they seek to win lawsuits, they press appellate courts to overturn precedent, and lawyers always parse language to favor their side. Confined to the narrow practice of law, that is fine. But it is an awful way to govern a great nation.
 
When politicians, as lawyers, begin to view some Americans as clients and other Americans as opposing parties, then the role of the legal system in our life becomes all-consuming. Some Americans become adverse parties of our very government. We are not all litigants in some vast social class-action suit.
 
We are citizens of a republic that promises us a great deal of freedom from laws, from courts, and from lawyers. Today, we are drowning in laws; we are contorted by judicial decisions; we are driven to distraction by omnipresent lawyers in all parts of our once private lives.
 
America has a place for laws and lawyers, but that place is modest and reasonable, not vast and unchecked. When the most important decision for our next president is whom he will appoint to the Supreme Court, the role of lawyers and the law in America is too big. When House Democrats sue America in order to hamstring our efforts to learn what our enemies are planning to do to us, then the role of litigation in America has become crushing.
 
Perhaps Americans will understand that change cannot be brought to our nation by those lawyers who already largely dictate American society and business. Perhaps Americans will see that hope does not come from the mouths of lawyers but from personal dreams nourished by hard work. Perhaps Americans will embrace the truth that more lawyers with more power will only make our problems worse.
 
The United States has 5% of the world's population and 66% of the world's lawyers! Tort (Legal) reform legislation has been introduced in congress several times in the last several years to limit punitive damages in ridiculous lawsuits such as spilling hot coffee on yourself and suing the establishment that sold it to you and also to limit punitive damages in huge medical malpractice lawsuits. This legislation has continually been blocked from even being voted on by the Democrat Party.
 
When you see that 97% of the political contributions from the American Trial Lawyers Association go to the Democrat Party, then you realize who is responsible for our medical and product costs being so high.
 
Note: Aaron Burr was a lawyer who, after being sanctioned for illegal dueling, with its ignominious outcome, tried to form his own country out west.
