The Ugly American
Wednesday, June 25, 2008
  I really am tired of reading and hearing this BS!
How many times do we have to hear it or read it. We were bought into the war with lies. If that's the truth then EVERY politician on the planet lied to us!

We heard it from Clinton, both of them, and Gore. We heard it from Kerry, although he never heard or spoke a lie he didn't like anyway, that Saddam had WMD's. Now all of a sudden, Bush lied about all of it.

Every member of both the House and Senate Intelligence committees, that's an oxymoron if ever there was one, said Hussein posed an imminent danger to the world. Now all of a sudden, it was all BS and Bush lied.

It amazes me that people that believe this president is dumber than a box of rocks believe he could pull off any of the supposed BS that those same people accuse him of pulling off. How can someone so stupid do all the things he's accused of doing?

I say to all those people that think that Iraq never had WMD's to ask those Iraqis' called the Kurds if he ever had them. I'm sure they'll tell you all that nobody lied, he had them. And he used them! And I'm sure he didn't use all that he had at the time that he gassed the Kurds.

Where are they now? That's a good question and I have some good ideas. Of course, I can't prove any of my ideas, but there are two countries that border Iraq that would just love to get their hands on some WMD's. You have Iraq's friendly neighbor to the east, know those guys, the ones that keep sending in "freedom fighters" to Iraq to help out the Madi Army and others and then there's the suspiciously quiet neighbor to the north, Syria. It's my bet that the WMD's went north prior to the invasion 5 years ago.

But hey, WTF do I know? I don't have access to the same intelligence that those A-holes in Washington do, but I have enough intelligence to know that if EVERY politician in the free world was spouting the same thing then more than likely, the one guy that liberals like to point the finger at and call a liar probably isn't.

I'm not the biggest Bush fan in the world, trust me on this, but come on, let's be real for a minute. If what people say is true, this is a conspiracy for the ages. Do you really believe that there are enough people in Washington bright enough to pull this off? I sure as hell don't!

Just my opinion...

  Check this out...

Over Memorial Day Weekend my folks came down to VA for a visit. My pop, at my request, bought this old photo album with him.

I scanned some of the pics and here's a couple to amuse you...

I remember this one...I remember telling all my friends...look, my dad's famous! The first picture on this brochure is a picture of my pop and his boat...right under it it says, "Famous boats, Famous Drivers! Some of the nations best...

When I was a little younger....okay, when I was a kid! This is how we spent our summer weekends. We'd load up the race boat and head down the road to some weekend spot and watch pop win a few and lose a few...

As I remember it, this wasn't one of those win a few days....Pop is the guy walking away from the boat with his head down...looking just a little disgusted....I wonder why???

What Kind of a Western Bad-Ass are You?
created with
You scored as John Wayne

You a classic all American cowboy who does the right thing. When you're sober. Which means occasionally. You like horses, the outdoors, whiskey, hot tempered women, whiskey, and bourbon.

John Wayne


Clint Eastwood


Lee Van Cleef


Charles Bronson


Lee Marvin


  Watch these faces!!!

I took this video with my new Sony Cybershot camera. We were at the Strawberry Festival in an area of Virginia Beach called Pungo. I've lived here on and off since '91 and I'd never made it to this area before.

Those faces are the godson, the youngest daughter and oldest that order, from left to right...

What was cool about it was seeing my folks doing all that walking. My pop and his new heart and my mom and her dual "hemi's" (that's hemi-arthroscopy, hip replacement, for you folks that don't know) walking like nothing's ever happened to them.

Anyway, have a nice day.
Not sure if I am THE ugly American, but I must be AN ugly American, because some Canadian told me so!!!
