Brain farts in congress

Hey everyone. Hope you're all having a good holiday season. Got all your Christmas shopping done? Hope so, its going to start getting hectic at stores soon as all the last minute shoppers go out to do their last minute shopping.

I was watching the news today while I was eating lunch. Can you believe what Saddam is saying? Giving alegations that he has been beat and tortured while in U.S. custody. The nerve of that man! Well, if a man is what he can be called. I hate to say it, but if I had been one of the guys that found him, I would have shot him and claimed that I thought he had a gun. I hate feeling like I would have killed a man in cold blood, but there are few people in this world that I think deserve death more than him. Beat and tortured, huh, in my opinion, he's lucky to be alive at all. As it is, he still has AC and television, which is more than 3/4 of the Iraqi population can say.

Another thing they said on the news is that the defense spending budget is being held up because of the issue of drilling for oil in the north east part of Alaska. Tell me something; what in blazes does oil drilling in Alaska have to do with the defense budget?! Why has the drilling there been tacked on as a side note to the defense budget?! You trying to tell me that my shop, squadron and base is running low on money for repairs and such because some braindead polotician decided to add a controversial footnote to the defense budget bill that has nothing to do with the defense of this country? What kind of idiocy is this? Who voted tese morons into office?! Wait, we did... Makes you wonder what we were thinking, doesn't it? Time to send another letter to the congressman. This is the kind of stuff that makes people who are brain dead raise their hand and say, "Isn't that kind of stupid?"

Anyway, just though I'd ramble on about stupid people in control of things that seem to be beyond their intelligence.

Well, gotta go get back to work. More water breaks to fix.

Hey! I just got to your blog through Blog Explosion. I just had a question. What did you do while you were in Iraq? And what is it like there? Did you get alot of support from family and friends? I hear there are alot of good things happening there, other than what the media tells the American people. Can you tell us more abou that? What good stuff did you see while you were there?
Well, Thank you for your service to our Country. (STILL ONE NATION UNDER GOD!)

Oh, I just read your post on Dec. 1st, where you wrote a little bit about your time in Iraq. How sad. I had a pen pal in Iraq, but haven't heard from them in awhile. It makes me nervous. I am glad you are home for the holidays this year.

Oh yeah, more questions: sorry!:0)
Why did you pick the Air Force when you inlisted, and why did you decide to do the job you do?

Hello Shannon.

Your question about good things happening in Iraq is a good one. I have actually already addressed this in a previous post titled "What's Wrong With This Picture.". There is link that will take you to a blog post of a recruiter that has a list of many good things you never hear about in the news or other media. I also have a link to his address in my sidebar, and he is also in Blog Explosion.

As for your other questions, they should be answered in the next few blog I will be posting. If I happen to miss any of your questions as I type my blog, feel free to point it out to me. Thanks for being my first viewer. (My wife doesn't count. lol)
