Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
Yes kiddies of all ages, Santa Claus is coming to town once again and there are some less fortunate children who would like a little something in their stocking Christmas morning. If you can, click on the Toys For Tots train on the side bar and give a little Christmas cheer. The Marines who handle the Toys For Tots program do a great job!

We Have A Jukebox!
Check it out! We have installed a "jukebox" (Cool Tunes From The red meat Freezer) on the side bar so we can share some of our favorite music with you. There will be some songs you have heard before and hopefully some that you haven't. Enjoy!
Note: If you have your own website and would like to put some music on it, you can purchase the jukebox program from CoffeeCup software. They have many styles to chose from and the program is very easy to install.

Republican Nightmare Becomes Reality
Oh My God!! The Democrats have won control of the House of Representatives, and, as of 11:42 P.S.T., the count is exactly even in the Senate 49-49. Unfortunately, the Republican candidates in Virginia (Allen) and Montana (Burns) are both trailing their Democratic opponents in the last two undecided senatorial elections.
A bit of humor was provided by Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), soon to be majority leader in the Senate, who said during an interview with Fox News' Carl Cameron that he was prepared to put away the partisan politics and work with the Bush administration. Rest assured, nothing will be further from the truth when the Democrats take control come January 2007.
The Democrats have no new ideas; have no will to address pressing problems such as social security and illegal immigration; have no intention of allowing President Bush to address Islamo-fascism in any significant way.
What the Democrats will do is make sure we cannot listen to Islamo-fascists calling one another; will make sure we cannot interrogate terrorists effectively; will make sure that class warfare continues over taxation; will make sure that the flow of illegal immigrants from Mexico continues unabated across our southern border.
Truth be told, the President and the Republicans in Congress have no one to blame but themselves because, although they gave lip service to their concerns about our national problems, they refused to make tough political choices and address the above-mentioned problems.

Senator Kerry Confirms His Hatred Of The Military
On December 6, 2005, WorldNetDaily reported,
"In accusations about American troops reminiscent of what the young John Kerry said to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1971, the senator and 2004 Democratic presidential nominee told CBS "Face the Nation" host Bob Schieffer there was no reason for U.S. soldiers to continue "terrorizing" Iraqi children.
"And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the – of – the historical customs, religious customs," Kerry said Sunday. "Whether you like it or not ... Iraqis should be doing that."
On Monday, October 30, 2006, in a speech at California's Pasadena City College Kerry said, "We're here to talk about education, but I want to say before - you know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't you get stuck in Iraq."
Then on Tuesday in response to calls he apologize for the remarks he made on Monday, Kerry defiantly said, "I apologize to no one for my criticism of the President and his broken policies."
And he went on, "My statement yesterday, and the White House knows this full well, was a botched joke about the President and the President's people, not about the troops."
On Wednesday, amid a torrent of calls from within his own party that he apologize, comes this "statement" posted on his official government web site:
As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop.
I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended.
It is clear the Republican Party would rather talk about anything but their failed security policy. I don’t want my verbal slip to be a diversion from the real issues. I will continue to fight for a change of course to provide real security for our country, and a winning strategy for our troops.
Unfortunately, Kerry keeps spinning his comments as a "joke," and seems to feel that the only way you could have been offended by his remarks were if you "misinterpreted" his remarks. The truth is that Kerry looks down his long nose at those in the military, and generally hates the military.
In response to the remarks Senator Kerry made this week a group of soldiers from the Minnesota National Guard stationed in Iraq made up the following poster which speaks for itself.
