Cuban Escape Pod

I found this boat while beach combing on Geiger Key in the Florida Keys. I don't know how long it's been there. I don't know the fate of the occupants. I don't know if I would have the courage to attempt what they did.

I DO know this is the perfect example of the failed policy worshipped by so many from the left.

Thank You

What is a Veteran?

Some veterans bear visible signs of their service: a missing limb, a jagged scar, a certain look in the eye.

Others may carry the evidence inside them: a pin holding a bone together, a piece of shrapnel in the leg - or perhaps another sort of inner steel: the soul's ally forged in the refinery of adversity.

Except in parades, however, the men and women who have kept America safe wear no badge or emblem.

You can't tell a vet just by looking.

He is the cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia sweating two gallons a day making sure the armored personnel carriers didn't run out of fuel.

He is the barroom loudmouth, dumber than five wooden planks, whose overgrown frat-boy behavior is outweighed a hundred times in the cosmic scales by four hours of exquisite bravery near the 38th parallel.

She - or he - is the nurse who fought against futility and went to sleep sobbing every night for two solid years in Da Nang.

He is the POW who went away one person and came back another - or didn't come back AT ALL.

He is the Quantico drill instructor who has never seen combat - but has saved countless lives by turning slouchy, no-account rednecks and gang members into Marines, and teaching them to watch each other's backs.

He is the parade - riding Legionnaire who pins on his ribbons and medals with a prosthetic hand.

He is the career quartermaster who watches the ribbons and medals pass him by.

He is the three anonymous heroes in The Tomb Of The Unknowns, whose presence at the Arlington National Cemetery must forever preserve the memory of all the anonymous heroes whose valor dies
unrecognized with them on the battlefield or in the ocean's sunless deep.

He is the old guy bagging groceries at the supermarket - palsied now and aggravatingly slow - who helped liberate a Nazi death camp and who wishes all day long that his wife were still alive to hold him when the nightmares come.

He is an ordinary and yet an extraordinary human being - a person who offered some of his life's most vital years in the service of his country, and who sacrificed his ambitions so others would not have to sacrifice theirs.

He is a soldier and a savior and a sword against the darkness, and he is nothing more than the finest, greatest testimony on behalf of the finest, greatest nation ever known.

So remember, each time you see someone who has served our country, just lean over and say Thank You. That's all most people need, and in most cases it will mean more than any medals they could have been awarded or were awarded.

Two little words that mean a lot, "THANK YOU".

"It is the soldier, not the reporter, Who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, Who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, Who has given us the
freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, Who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protestor to burn the flag."

Make US Proud Marco!

We have given Marco Rubio the votes he asked for. Gladly.

But never forget this Marco, the Democrats got in due mostly to frustrations at the Republicans' ineffectiveness and spending. Real or perceived.

The GOP was fortunate to get a second chance to prove they aren't "Democrat Lite". Now you get to put your money where your campaign rhetoric was; resurrect the economy, create jobs and repeal the health care bill while replacing it with a more effective version. Not a small achievement.

But......go back to the GOP's old ways and Odumbass (or Hillary) gets in again in 12, guaranteed.

Best of luck!

The United States National Anthem

I have always detested the way well-known singers screw up the National Anthem, even forgetting the words.Tired of all those "recording stars" singing the national anthem? Here's what our military can do.
This will put a lump in your throat and make you proud to be an American!

And this my friends is the way it should be sung......... with no"artistic interpretation"
