Amazing News

My Dad sent this to me in an email...its an amazing story.

The  Straight Scoop from Charlie Daniels 

I've  just returned from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Naval Air Station base where we  did three shows for the troops and toured several locations around the  post visiting with some of the finest military personnel on planet earth.  The kids seemed to really enjoy the shows and especially liked "This Ain't  No Rag, It's A Flag" and "In America". We had a great time with them. 

We  saw Camp  X-Ray, where the  Taliban detainees are being held only from a distance, but I picked up a  lot of what's going on there from talking with a lot of different people. 

The truth of the matter is that this operation is under a  microscope. The Red Cross has an on site presence there and watches  everything that goes on very closely. The media is not telling you the  whole truth about what's going on over there. The truth is that these scum  bags are not only being treated humanely, but they are probably better off  healthwise and medically than they've ever been in their lives. They are  fed well, able to take showers and receive state of the art medical care.  And have their own Moslem chaplain. I saw several of them in a field  hospital ward where they were being treated in a state of the art medical  facility.

Now  let's talk about the way they treat our people. First of all, they have to  be watched constantly. These people are committed and wanton murderers who  are willing to die just to kill someone else. One of the doctors told me  that when they had Taliban in the hospital the staff had to really be  careful with needles, pens and anything else which could possibly be used  as a weapon. They also throw their excrement and urine on the troops who  are guarding them. And our guys and gals have shown great restraint in not  retaliating. We are spending over a million dollars a day maintaining and  guarding these nasty killers and anyone who wants to see them brought to  the U.S.A. for trial is either out of their heads or a lawyer looking for  money and notoriety. Or both.

I  wish that the media and the Red Cross and all the rest of the people who  are so worried about these criminals would realize that this is not a  troop of errant Boy Scouts. These are killers of the worst kind. They  don't need protection from us, we need protection from them. If you don't  get anything else out of this soapbox, please try to realize that when you  see news coverage much of the time you're not getting the whole story, but  an account filtered through a liberal mindset with an agenda. 

We  have two fights on our hands, the war against terror and the one against  the loudmouthed lawyers and left wing media who would sap the strength  from the American public by making us believe that we're losing the war or  doing something wrong in fighting it. Remember these are the same people  who told us that Saddam Hussein's Republican guard was going to be an all  but invincible enemy and that our smart bombs and other weapons were not  really as good as the military said that they were.

They  also took up for Bill Clinton while he was cavorting around the Oval  office with Monica Lewinsky while the terrorists were gaining strength and  bombing our Embassies and dragging the bodies of dead American heroes  around the dusty streets of Somalia. It's a shame that we can't have an  unbiased media who would just report the truth and let us make up our own  minds.

Here  I must commend Fox News for presenting both sides much better than the  other networks. They are leaving the other cable networks in the dust.  People like being told the truth.

Our  military not only needs but deserves our support. Let's give it to them. 

The  next time you read a media account about the bad treatment of the Taliban  in Cuba, remember what I told you.  Been there done that.

Footnote: I got an e-mail from a  rather irate first cousin of mine the other day who has a daughter who's a  lawyer and she seemed to think that I was painting all lawyers with the  same brush. Please understand that I'm not doing that at all. That would  be like saying that all musicians were drug addicts. There are a lot of  good and honest attorneys out there. I happen to have one of them. But it  seems that they never get any airtime. It's always the radicals who get  their opinions heard, who fight the idea of the military tribunals and  cite The Constitution and the integrity of America as  their source of justifying  their opinions. Well, first of all The Constitution says "We the people of  the United  States", it doesn't mention any other  country.

And secondly as far as integrity is concerned, I don't  think some of these folks would know integrity if it bit them in the  posterior.

What  do you think? God Bless America.

Its a hard task to make me speechless....

People never fail to impress me.

Heres an Idea...

Dont be an asshole and dont pirate.

The fact that the RIAA sues you doesnt mean you are innocent. The RIAA sues people who they have IDENTIFIED are spreading music in large volumes and committing mass piracy. The issues of suing someone who downloaded one song isnt the case.

These websites make me sick. Pay for your music and movies, just like everyone else. Dont be a cheap bastard, or if you are a cheap bastard, dont whine, complain and beg for money if you do get sued.

You Have To Be Kidding Me...

Someone needs to tell Arizona that their football team sucks, it always will suck, and it has always sucked. Changing their logo and uniforms isnt going to do anything. Ever since the Broncs changed them during the elway years, people think uniform and logo changes = superbowl rings. Ask Marvin Lewis how that worked for the bungles this year. (yah, that means you, badandy)

SBC Can Sit and Spin

After SBC disconnected my phone for the 2nd time in as many months for failing to send me a bill, then accusing me of not paying, i cancelled my service with them, and went withVonage - The Broadband Phone Company. These guys are pretty slick. Using existing broadband internet connection you may have for phone usage.

14.99 a month for 500 anytime minutes and unlimited long distance. 24.99 a month for unlimited minutes. Pretty good deal if you ask me.

If you are thinking of signing up too, let me know and ill give you some info, plus you can use me as a referral.

Worlds Safest Operating System

mi2g Lists Worlds Safest Computer Operating Systems

What i find most suprising isnt that OS X ties for the top spot, but that linux is listed as the LEAST safe. Who knew?

Apparently some tech security minded brits, thats who.

The answer to all problems...

Elgato Systems

Check this company out. They have created a device that acts as a Tivo that connects to your computer, lets you record shows, edit out commercials, export them to dvd, archive them, etc. ITs pretty sweet. There are a few different models, one using USB 2.0, one using Firewire, and then a model that has an HDTV tuner in it so you can record HDTV shows and watch them on your mac.

This thing is incredible. I love my DVR i got from my cable company, but my main complaint is that i cant export it to dvd. My parents have a Tivo, which is nice, but it has the same issue. This seems to be a real good answer.

Oh, and its only for Macintosh. Hahahahahaahaha. I love my mac.

Why Micro$oft is Insane

In discussions of Longhorn, this news tidbit came out...

By the time Longhorn ships, according to Microsoft chairman Bill Gates, PCs will have 4GHz to 6GHz processors, more than 2GB of memory, at least a terabyte of storage, and graphics accelerators three times more powerful than those offered by ATI and Nvidia today. He says that Longhorn is designed to take advantage of all this muscle, and nowhere is that more evident than in the in the rich, three-dimensional interface known as Aero.

Youve got to be kidding me. Sys reqs like that are insane.

Weekend Pleasure....

Some Thoughts on This Weekends Playoff Football-
I had high hopes for the Chargers. Oh well. They had a helluva turnaround, though.

I hate the Rams. Quote me on that.

"Superbowl or bust." - Brett Favre. Well Brett, its bust. Time to put your paperwork in.

Peyton. I love you. In the only way a heterosexual male can love another heterosexual male who holds more records for quarterbacks than a teenager has dirty dreams about supermodels.

Seattle. You are a bunch of has beens. That is all.


Oh. Randy Moss is one of the biggest disgraces to ever come into the NFL.

Other News -

Jack Bauer is back with a vengeance. Tonight's 2 hour season premiere of 24 was incredible, and i get 2 more hours tomorrow. I love FOX. Next week...American idol. Just in time for me to be depressed that there is no football on TV anymore.

Im glad I dont have my Mac rumor website anymore. Heres to hoping you don't go to jail, Thinksecret.

World of Warcraft Rules.

That should do it. Night all.
