Lindsey Stone, You Are No Victim

Lindsey Stone

Lindsey Stone

If the name Lindsey Stone does not ring a bell, allow me a moment to refresh your memory.

Lindsey Stone and her friend Jamie Schuh are self professed “douchebag’s” that posted a photo of Ms. Stone on facebook of her very disrespectful pose at Arlington National Cemetery back in 2012.

The action caused an outrage nationwide, resulting her losing her job, being nationally shamed and even to the point of receiving death threats, that final action I disagree with.

Most of us put her disrespect behind us and she seemed to fade off into obscurity, which probably would have been the best thing for her to do.

Der Spiegel: How Germans Experienced The End of WWII

by lewwaters

It’s now been 70 years, the bloodiest conflict in history, World War II was drawing to a close. While we in America and other Allied Countries celebrated with jubilant smiles, our fathers and mothers paid little heed to the Germans experience as they woke up to the evil they had permitted to overtake their nation.

The German magazine, Der Spiegel treats us to a series of photos, interviews and video excerpts from the final days.

The Day of the Century: How Germans Experienced End of WWII

Germany paid a high price for the pure evil of Hitler and we must ever be on guard lest we allow it to happen again.

Thankfully, Germany and the other Axis Nations are honored and trusted allies today.

She Never Said That?

by lewwaters

Baltimore, Maryland Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has come under fire following the mayhem and rioting seen in recent days in that city for words she spoke on giving space to destroy. She now claims she never said what has been clearly recorded coming from her own mouth.

Now, I could believe she did not mean what she said or her words came out wrong from what she actually meant to say, but to outright deny saying what has been clearly recorded?

And consider those youths and agitators in Baltimore hearing those same words?

The Mayor should admit what she said and clarify along with condemning the violence (which she has), but playing victim over what she clearly stated does nothing to help calm things down.

What Happened To The “Spirit of Comradeship?”

by lewwaters

Then General of the Army (Five Star) Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in Europe, expressed some lofty goals immediately after the Allied Victory in World War II that served us quite well, for a time.

Below are his opening remarks to an October 1945 film, The True Glory commissioned by the US Office of War Information and the British Ministry of Information, “documenting the victory on the Western Front, from Normandy to the collapse of the Third Reich.”

I have to ask, what happened?

Rand Paul? No Way!

by lewwaters

As if we didn’t expect it, Rand Paul, son of batshit crazy Ron Paul made his run for president official this morning. I will not support or vote for him as by his own words, he is pretty much a “chip off the old block.” From a 2009 interview with Alex Jones;

He may try to act like he isn’t on board with the lunacy of his Dad, but as he said, “We might present the message sometimes differently.”

“Think Before You Speak”

by lewwaters

This video was produced by a young lady named Kenzie Marcigan for her Senior Project and loaded to her facebook page with the request of “Shares would be awesome.” All rights belong with her and I hope she doesn’t mind that I am taking the liberty to share it off of facebook so others may view it.

This is an excellent and powerful message to our kids, but it is us grown-ups that need to realize the problem goes much deeper than the everyday cruelty of many kids.

Updated: Thinking on Compulsory Union Membership

by lewwaters

Just a quick curious thought, considering that for once, the Lazy C gets it right in their editorial In Our View: Right to Work = Freedom (even a broken clock gets it right twice a day), and the usual slate of Liberal Democrat union lackey’s flock into the defend workers being forced to pay extortion in the form of union dues in order to hold a job.

But, considering that the Democrat Party employs people for various positions, what union represents their workers? Who do employees of the Democrat Party pay extortion to in order to work there?

Surely such a pro-union political party would gladly allow union representation for their paid employees, wouldn’t they?

Mayor Leavitt, “Gutless & Spineless?”

by lewwaters

Leavitt 5The Lazy C was sure to boast of Mayor Tim ‘the Liar’ Leavitt boycotting the recent Keynote speech Lt. Gen. Boykin, cowering from complaints by pro-Muslim group CAIR.

It turns out that the event ended up selling out after Levitt’s cowardly boycott, joined in by fellow Vancouver City Council Members, Larry J. Smith (Colonel, ret, US Army Ranger) and Anne McEnerny Ogle. Video of the General’s speech can be seen here.

General Boykin, ever the gentleman and appreciative of Leavitt’s avoiding the speech and possibly distracting him, thanked him and CAIR both very publicly on his facebook page this evening.

Terror in Oklahoma?

by lewwaters

Columbian, What StoryOnce again, a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy down in Moore, Oklahoma as the sad news of a recently fired man has beheaded one woman and was shot in the process of stabbing another.

Yet another wake up call is given as we read that the murderer was a recent convert to Islam, “the religion of peace” that has been beheading people around the globe.

There have been calls from the Middle East to begin beheading citizens inside the U.S. while at the same time, our alleged “leaders” in Washington D.C. dilly dally around on sealing our borders and push for legislation to further restrict law-abiding citizens guns.

Military Surplus, Police and Ill-Informed Writers

by lewwaters

“But to militarize them, give them military weapons, it creates a culture. You know, guns and tanks and gases that are illegal in war time are being used.” Ron Paul

Police MilitarizedPossibly one of the more idiotic and inaccurate comments ever made by the three time failed presidential candidate, Ron Paul uttered those words in an MSNBC interview with Andrea Mitchell, August 18, 2014 in regards to the rioting in Ferguson, Missouri after the death of the teenager, Michael Brown.

In true Ron Paul fashion, blame is placed on the Police for having surplus military equipment for the riots, just as he blamed American policy for the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and even claiming a fence built along our Southern Border would not be to keep illegal aliens out, but would be to lock American Citizens in.

September 10 – Again

by lewwaters

World Trade CenterThirteen years ago, all seemed well. The world was at relative peace, we thought. We went about our business that Monday, went to work, enjoyed our families, watched our favorite television shows, ate dinner and went to bed, looking forward to another week in our lives.

Tuesday morning changed all of that as we woke up the horrific scene of high jacked aircraft flown into buildings in New York and Washington D.C.

It didn’t take long to realize we were under attack and all air traffic was grounded out of fear of more high jacked aircraft being flown into other buildings in other cities.

The world hasn’t been the same since.

It’s Time to Oil the Economy and Get it Moving Again

by lewwaters

In light of the recent release of an Analysis showing the Oil Terminal at Port of Vancouver stands to add $2 Billion to our local economy, I am bringing back up this report from July 2011 showing much of our economic troubles over the past 6 years could be greatly eased by energy companies.

This blog has been and remains a strong advocate for expanding our energy sector responsibly and increasing the use of our own energy resources while so-called “Green” sources remain unperfected, unreliable and overly expensive.

Just about everybody understands the concept of lubricating something to free it up and get it moving. From squeaky door hinges to sliding parts, difficult to open windows to even removing a ring off of a swollen finger, putting a lubricant on it allows it to move freely and gets it moving again.

Although lubricants come in many forms, we commonly refer to them as “oil.” Of course, a good many lubricants are derivatives of oil, just some of the many uses of petroleum. Just a little dab of these lubricants, working the rusted part back and forth and soon, it is moving smoothly again just as it was designed to.

Can Democrats Ever Be Truthful?

by lewwaters

Donkey kissing assDemocrats have long claimed to be “for the people,” but can they really be for the common man when they lie through their teeth on a nearly daily basis?

It has been in the news that the Speaker of the House is suing Barack Obama, having won the approval of the majority of the House to proceed.

And Democrats livid over that prospect have fallen back to their usual flat out, bald faced lies in order to raise funds and smear the effort, witnessed by three emails I have received directly from the Democrat Party below.
