Quotable Quotes

"The Iraq Survey Group’s findings or rather, recommendations are a joke and could have only come from a group of old people who have been stuck in Washington for too long. The brainpower of the ISG has come up with a new direction for our country and that includes negotiating with countries whose people chant “Death to America” and whose leaders deny the Holocaust and call for Israel to be wiped from the face of the earth. Baker and Hamilton want us to get terrorists supporting countries involved in fighting terrorism!" -- Sergeant T. F. Boggs, U.S. Army Reserve (via Powerline)

"It seems that the commission charged with preparing a report dealing with the Iraqi question has come up with the inspired solution that the matter should be entrusted to Iran and Syria of all other, after the U.S. washes her hands clean and go home to live in tranquility never to meddle in world affairs again. Of course it is not stated in these terms but rather couched in reasonable sounding phraseology: gradual reduction of troops; involvement of neighboring states such as Iran and Syria to help resolve the problems etc. etc. Well! Well! Well! Iran and Syria above all and by name, too . . . [I]t is not right to burden these poor elderly gentlemen with such hard work; it is rather inhuman; what with the problems of old age, Alzheimer’s disease and all that. One fully understands their inclination towards rest and quiet retreat." -- Alaa, "The Mesopotamian"

I think you mentioned someplace that you are retired. Stop by and answer a few questions for me.

I'm asking questions today at my blog based on a book I want. Were you taught to diagram sentences when you were in school? Were your classes called "language arts," or "communication," or "English?" Were you taught "whole language" or phonics? Did you have instruction in penmanship (cursive) after the early grades? Check here.

The jokes on us. Re- Sgt.
Boggs. The trechery from
Oslo to The Baker Report
leaves a trail of blood
and tears. It's hollow.
I believe the administration
knows this. They can't win
the war in this hostile
environment. I don't see GW
bending over for Tehran or
the rest of those fine
fellows for Jihad.
