Quote of the Day

I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.

-Booker T. Washington


Such delightful snippets of military lore are heartwarming.

USMC. 8 years, NO volunteers?… from Rico

God bless those Leatherneck’s, Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children….the USMC.

For eight [8] years of the trespasser & fraud Obama’s tenure, there were NO Marine volunteers to serve on his pResidential detail….they HAD to be assigned. Ordered.
– Marines follow orders, but not traitorous Commie bastards.

Oooraawwwww, Devil dogs!

Sack cloth and Ashes

Today is Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent. For those of a somewhat devout nature, there is suppose to be a time of penance for all those misdeeds accumulated over the past year. Traditionally, one gives up something for the Lenten period since going about in sack cloth and ashes has gone out of style for now.

The usual ideas of ‘suffering’ for Lent circle around giving up things one likes such as ice cream or candy (kid stuff) beer (man stuff). Since this is written from a male perspective, women are on their own. Maybe stop watching “The View”, noshing or demand more sex. I can’t think of anything else.

Guys, what you need is a list of things that you can do which you CAN and WILL keep right through the Lenten period. Here are some; I’m sure you can with your fertile imaginations add to this list before sundown.

  1. Give up jogging
  2. Stop getting out of bed before 10:00
  3. Exercise! Join the Bowl & Beer League two nights a week
  4. Improve your mind and body, join a New Age Naked Yoga Club
  5. Don’t shave for the entire period of Lent

There are many other things that you can do depending on the area of the country in which you live. Test fishing lures, Barcoloungers, become a judge at pole dancing competitions.
Lent does not need to be a dreary time, a prelude to Spring and Easter.
