Hey, guys.

The escalation has been a failure. This was one of the bloodiest summers for US troops in Iraq, Iraqi casualties are running at twice the pace of last year and 15 of 18 of President Bush's own benchmarks remain unmet. But the White House is at it again--telling us that things in Iraq are going just great.

Congress is going to vote this month on war policy for the next year--and Bush is hoping all this "progress" talk will scare Congress away from voting for withdrawal. We can't let that happen. Almost 4,000 US troops have died. We've spent half a trillion dollars in Iraq. Every day you turn on the news and more people are killed.

I signed a petition urging Congress to begin a fully funded redeployment immediately. Can you join me at the link below?

With the help of one of my Army friends, I have started a new website:

Our purpose is to reach the general public to let them know what a waste Don't ask, Don't tell is.

I'd appreciate it if you would look at the site and send me some feedback to let me know what you think.



Speed Traps In Your City...

I ganked this from a friend's myspace bulletin and thought it was definitely worth checking out...

If you have a lead foot as I do, here is a site you must check out before your next driving out. It is a list of speed traps set by the Police in our area. Hope this helps someone!

To Commemorate 9/11...

Here's something that pretty much sums up my thoughts on the anniversary of the WTC fiasco...


To realize the value of a sister
Ask someone who doesn't have one.

To realize the value of ten years:
Ask a newly divorced couple.

To realize the value of four years:
Ask a graduate.

To realize the value of one year:
Ask a student who has failed a final exam.

To realize the value of nine months:
Ask a mother who gave birth to a stillborn.

To realize the value of one month:
Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of one week:
Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of one hour:
Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of one minute:
Ask a person who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize the value of one-second:
Ask a person who has survived an accident.

To realize the value of one millisecond:
Ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.

To realize the value of a friend:
Lose one.

Time waits for no one.
