Note from Amy: Wowza! ‘Courageous Restraint Medal’ Searches Are Way Up

May 12, 2010

So… Rush Limbaugh covered this story today on his show. Yep, I was listening. At the same time, I was snickering to myself because I posted the story 3 days ago. My views were way up today. The most used keyword search? Every combination and misspelling of “Courageous Restraint Medal” possible. Thanks for the views, guys! Remember to subscribe, favorite and refer.

Glad to see I can get something right. Even a few days in advance. Be sure to comment and let me know how you feel about his proposition.

God Bless our troops!

“Courageous Restraint” Medal – Calling On Our Troops to Not Always Fight Back

May 8, 2010

A ridiculous proposition has been made to expand the available military awards to include a “Courageous Restraint” medal. Deserving recipients would include those who avoid deadly force at risk to themselves. Wait. What?!

The spokesperson for Gen Stanley McChrystal, Lt. Col. Edward Sholtis, reports that there has been no final decision, but that the proposition is being reviewed by Headquarters.

Many that oppose the addition of such an award see this as a way of sending a message to our enemies that our military will not fight back at full force. It also sends a confusing message to our troops. Should they not make split-second decisions to eliminate threats as they arise to avoid being disqualified for such an award?

Former senior legal adviser to the Green Berets and director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, professor Jeffrey F. Addicott had something to say about this. Read more…

No One in Arizona is Laughing, Mr. President – Gov. Jan Brewer

May 8, 2010

This post is simple. Governor Jan Brewer’s YouTube channel has posted a moving video on the subject of illegal immigrant crime and how Obama seems to think it’s worthy of a joke or two. If you forward anything today, make it this video. When did our government begin to do everything we ask it not to do and nothing we beg for it to do?

Illegal is Illegal. Keep on Truckin’, Arizona.

May 6, 2010

I’m proposing a challenge to any person that disagrees with the new law in Arizona. I am honestly interested to hear your reasoning. Give me a paragraph without using the words “racist”, “social justice”, “racial profiling”, “discriminating”or “civil rights”. Do it. I dare you.

I’d also like for you to think about our current process of identifying criminals. A bank is robbed and the teller is raped. When the police officers arrive and are questioning witnesses, how should they describe the suspect?

Witness: Yes, Officer. He was a Mexican man, middle-aged, about 6′ tall and close to 190-205 lbs.
Officer: No, no… That won’t do. You can’t say he was “Mexican”.
Witness: Well, he was wearing a shirt that said “PROUD MEXICAN” and spoke in Spanish and with a Mexican accent.
Officer: Doesn’t matter, ma’am. It just isn’t right to profile that way.
Witness: Erm… Uh… Well, he was Hispanic?
Officer: Nope.
Witness: Latin American?

Thomas Jefferson

It’s been a while, I know. I’ll make this post an easy one. Healthcare. Let’s allow Thomas Jefferson to do the talking.

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms [of government] those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”

“I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.”

“The same prudence which in private life would forbid our paying our own money for unexplained projects, forbids it in the dispensation of the public moneys.”

Last but not least:

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”

Thank you, Mr. Jefferson. Thank you. That’s exactly what I’ve been thinking.

A SIDE NOTE to my readers, subscribers and followers:

Thank you for the continued support, emails, comments and subscriptions. I was amazed that there was so much going on in my absence. I truly appreciate it. Stay tuned. You are all amazing.
