I celebrated the Oscars myself by going to see Act of Valor for the 2nd time in its first opening weekend. I implore you… if you have not yet seen this movie, do yourself a favor and go see it soon! You will not be sorry. Both screenings I went to gave standing ovations at the end of the film, and in both theaters, sobbing could be heard at certain moments, as well.

I know, I’m late to the game on this one, but it’s still worth posting nonetheless. Everybody else has posted it all over the web, but some of my readers may not have seen it yet. In that case, this is very much worth seeing. This video is a look at Andy McCarthy’s book, “The Grand Jihad.”
The narrator of the video, Bill Whittle, is one of my favorite people ever. Search on YouTube for Bill Whitle Videos…any of his Afterburner or Firewall videos. ALL instant classics!

I’ve been stewing on this and stewing on this figuring out the right way to convey how I feel about it, and I’ve been struggling with just the right words to describe my sentiment. I read a fabulous screed by Deebow over at BlackFive, but it wasn’t until I saw the headline in a Weekly Standard piece today that quoted Lt. Col. Allen West (R-FL) on this matter. I couldn’t have said it better myself:
‘Shut Your Mouth, War Is Hell’
“All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?
“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.

One of this country’s best heroes, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, appeared on Bill O’Reilly tonight not only to promote his new book, “American Sniper,” but to tell the tale of his experiences in the Middle East as the most sucessful American sniper, as well as his convictions of his accomplishments. He not only performed so well to save the lives of his fellow military men & women, but also the innocent Iraqi men, women and children, against what he calls (as well as most others do) “savages;” savages who would rape, murder, and torture their fellow countrymen and women in the name of their “god.”
I think Bill O was a bit out of line in his questioning of Kyle, pressing him on his conviction that what he had done was the right thing. In the end, however, Kyle acquitted himself quite well for this interview.
You don’t agree with Kyle? Sucks to be you, but he did what his country asked him to do, and I think he did an out-freaking-STANDING job as a SEAL. America is a safer country because of men like him.

Whether she is or not, I’m using her own tactics and words against her (and her fellow co-hosts). On the upcoming Barbara Walters “10 Most Fascinating People” special, one of the people Barbara interviews is former GOP primary candidate Herman Cain. Also interviewed in the special is Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad. When Barbara brings that up to discuss with her fellow View co-hosts, Joy immediately leapt at the chance to disparage Herman Cain, asking Barabara of whom she was most afraid …Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad or Herman Cain? Apparently Joy Blowhard is more afraid of a black man than she would be a brutal Hezbollah terrorist.
Joy, when are you going to realize that you are not funny? Bashar al-Assad is a terrorist leader and sympathizer of Hezbollah, a proxy terror group for Iran, and you are trying to equate someone like that to the unfairly maligned Herman Cain, who is a devout Christian, married for 43 years to his wife, Gloria? Assad’s goon squads have killed thousands of dissidents in Syria who have protested the dictator’s decades-long rule, yet Herman Cain is merely being ACCUSED of inappropriate behavior with mostly unknown women, all of whose claims can be clearly disproved given the chance for an appropriate investigation.
