    I could spend hours of research and reference every person that has discussed "portgate," but I am too dang lazy. I run a household with kids & animals & last time I checked - I NEVER RAN A FREAKIN PORT! We are all armchair politicians and SURELY could run the country better than anyone, but WE DON'T! It is fun to discuss this situation that I never knew existed (hence the ignorant) and research it so I can make up my own dang mind. But regardless of what I think, it won't change a thing. But please amuse me and discuss this interesting "hot topic." I need a beer now!

    Wednesday Hero
    This weeks Wednesday Hero was submited by Greta. Also, I couldn't find a picture of him.
    PFC David Alexander is a former lineman of the NFL's Washington Redskins who decided that he wanted to become a member of an Army of One through the United States Army Reserve. However, he exceeded the maximum age for entry into the Army Reserve. The maximum entry age is 40; PFC Alexander was a few months shy of his 41st birthday. In support of PFC Alexander's goal, the CG, USAREC(United States Army Recruiting Command) requested an age exception, which was granted on 8 July 2005 by the DMPM(Director of Military Personnel Management). PFC Alexander shipped on 20 September 2005 to Ft Leonardwood for One Station Unit Training (OSUT) in MOS 21B (Combat Engineer). During a follow-up on this Soldier, the company commander stated the Soldier arrived in top physical condition, is a top notch Soldier, and is in the Top 5% of his company. He further stated that PFC Alexander has been in a leadership role from day one, setting an example for his younger peers. The company commander had nothing but laudatory comments about this new Soldier. Upon completion of all training, PFC Alexander was named the honor graduate of both Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT). PFC Alexander completed IET(Initial Entry Training) on 3 February 2006 and returned to his Army Reserve unit for duty. He is assigned to the 367th Engineer Battalion, Manakato, Minnesota. PFC Alexander's performance and stamina is an example of how conditioning and determination prevails and refutes any notion that older Soldiers will struggle during IET.

    These brave men and women risk their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

    If you have a loved who has served or is currently serving in the armed forces, and would like for me to profile them as a Wednesday Hero, I would be proud to. Just email me with some info and a photo.

    Hello blogging friends,

    Within the next week, Hooahwife will be moving to http://hooahwife.com. I have gone through quite a few blog changes over this past year, but so has just about every blogger.

    There are now other contributirs on Hooah Wife (and friends) as I like to keep things fresh:
    1. Silke - a longtime friend, West Point graduate, former soldier & army hooah wife (hubby currently deployed), who is left of center politically
    2. Indian Chris - a half-breed Cherokee Okie who leans far to the right & loves his Country. He also has his own blog
    3. Brainhell - He leans way to the left, is a little eccentirc, living with ALS & loves to debate. He has his own blog as well. He will be providing us with his Opfor series when he has time.

    For the new blog, I would love to add some real (the ones there now I made up) "what our readers think about Hooah Wife" quotes on the sidebar. My hopes would be to gather a large group of quotes so I can rotate them!

    Thanks for sticking with me! Hooah

    Opfor #3 from Brainhell
    NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers
    will seek quick action in Congress to block a deal
    under which a state-owned Dubai company would manage
    major U.S. seaports, they said on Tuesday.

    Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff has
    defended the deal, saying the administration approved
    it after a classified review and included provisions
    to protect national security.

    New York's other U.S. senator, Democrat Hillary
    Clinton, said last week she planned legislation to ban
    companies owned or controlled by foreign governments
    from acquiring U.S. port operations[...]

    If the man who protected us from Katrina says it's
    safe for an Dubai company to run security at US ports,
    that's good enough for me. I can't stand the
    opportunism of that Hillary trying to score petty
    political points when our president is at war to
    protect us from terrorism. Can you spell 'treason?'

    Liar Liar Radio Shack on Fire!
    As we are working diligently here at the Perry house on hubby's resume and interview questions. Honesty, trust and approachability were what I listed as his best attributes. My parents still haven't forgiven him for not letting me move any of my belongings with his household goods before we were married (well maybe they have).

    To get to the point of the title, on the radio today I heard THIS breaking story, the CEO for Radio Shack telling quite a few lies to pad, or should I say - imagine up his resume. Dang - I could use a new phone - maybe hubby could slip into that job (LOL) & then maybe I'd get to meet Howie Long too! Must pick Michael Bates's brain about some lying with politicians in Tulsa.

    Please remind me, next time I go suit shopping with hubby - to hire a stinkin babysitter!!! He said - no - they'll be fine. Maybe a shot of tequila before would have calmed my nerves. The poor Men's Warehouse was traumatized by the 3 Perry kids for the afternoon! Bought him 2 suits, shoes, belt, 2 shirts, 2 ties - chaching!!! Maybe some Cousin Eddie white bucks would complete the look!

    Sunday is Buy my Soldier an Interview Suit Day!
    I used to be a PE teacher & athletic trainer,then for a short bit I did orthopedic sales. The boss asked me to wear a suit to report to work. My reply was, "I have lots of sweat suits." A few hundred dollars later, I was wearing proper "monkey" suits & quickly traded those in for sweats again.

    Tomorrow I take hubby to buy his "interview suits." My soldier is (almost)43 years old and never wore a suit (besides the double breasted, short waisted 80's suit & the "Korean specials" that magically shrank in the closet, Class A's, Dress Mess & Dress Blues)to work. We will not be heading to Marlowe White (where soldiers get most their dress stuff) or AAFEs Clothing Sales. I should get a personal defibrillator machine for the "sticker shock" he will get!

    Burlington Coat Factory, Men's warehouse, DSW shoes...here we come.

    He tried to convince me that if he stripped all the stuff off his class A's, he could wear that for a suit - very funny! Wish me luck! Hooah!

    • Thanks to my friend & reader Terri B for this tee-shirt link. I expect at least one for my birthday next month - hint hint - wink wink!
    • Spent the night in Ft Smith, AK for a gymnastics meet. #2 son, well, he was present & was thrilled he got a medal in each event just because "everyone" got one. He didn't care & he loved the candy in his entry bag.
    • Can't wait to see SNL & Mad TV tonight for the "Quayle" hunting parody - lol!
    • As we drove the treacherous highway on the way home, we were discussing the most unique music groups ever. I say Fleetwood Mac, REM, Stones & the Beatles. He didn't agree with my Fleetwood one because he said it was all about Stevie Nicks. Hmmmm.....

    Liberals Are Cowards
    If you've ever wanted solid proof that a Liberal mindset is a dangerous thing, keep reading.
    Read More
    The follwing is from Hannity & Colmes. It's Sean and Alan talking to a San Francisco, enough said, Supervisor who voted against having the U.S.S. Iowa docked in the city and turned into a museum.

    Sean Hannity: you said to me you don’t want a symbol of war in the harbor.
    Gerardo Sandoval: That’s Right.
    SH: I guess this is just a difference of philosophy. That symbol of war that beat back the forces of fascism and imperial Japan and Nazism; that’s really a symbol of peace. Why would you see it as a symbol of war when it defended liberty and freedom?
    GS: well, it did do that but it also is a warship. Its got guns on it and it fires things…SF is where we signed the UN charter; created the UN; there are many ways to honor veterans and their sacrifices.
    SH: “Do you think America should unilaterally disarm, should we give up our tools of war?”
    GS: “I would say yes, we should. We should invest our money in something else-”
    Alan Colmes: Let me ask you a question: should we not have a military?
    GS: I don’t think we should have a military…what good has it done us in the last five years.
    AC: …But to say we should not have a military; it’s absolutely absurd; it’s incredible!
    GS: Welcome to San Francisco.
    AC: What do you want us to defend ourselves with?
    GS: Well, you got cops; you got the coast guard there’s lots of different things.

    That's got to be the dumbest thing a Liberal has ever said. And that's saying a lot. This soft brained, ignorant numb nuts thinks that the police should be the ones to protect us from al-Qaeda? Dear God. The mentality of this Mr. Sandoval is what has caused Europe to fall right into the toilet. God help us should people like him ever take this country over.

    Darwin Watch

    Two significant events this week regarding the Darwin debate...

    Feb. 13 - On the 197th birthday of Charles Darwin, ministers at several hundred churches around the country preached yesterday against recent efforts to undermine the theory of evolution, asserting that the opposition many Christians say exists between science and faith is false...The event, called Evolution Sunday, is an outgrowth of the Clergy Letter Project, started by academics and ministers in Wisconsin in early 2005 as a response to efforts, most notably in Dover, PA., to discredit the teaching of evolutionary theory in public schools.

    Feb. 14 - The Ohio Board of Education voted 11 to 4 Tuesday to toss out a mandate that 10th-grade biology classes include critical analysis of evolution and an accompanying model lesson plan, dealing the intelligent design movement its second serious defeat in two months.

    Many thanks to those who have participated in this on-going discussion (see below). Your comments are welcome and appreciated! For those interested, here's a summary of some of the arguments:
    Read More
    "Darwin's theory is antireligious." - Not true. Many people of faith, including scientists, find no conflict between evolution and their religion. They believe that evolution is the process through which God creates life (also known as theistic evolution).

    "Darwin's theory is inherently racist." - Not true. The theory of evolution by means of natural selection is no more a justification for racism than the theory of gravity is justification for pushing someone off a cliff. Scientific laws of nature have no inherent moral implications.

    I would point out that the two arguments above have nothing to do with scientific proof against evolution. What it does show is that many oppose evolution not because of its scientific flaws, but because of a perceived cultural and moral threat.

    "Evolution is a theory not a fact." - It's both. Biological evolution is a change in the genetic characteristics of a population over time. That this happens is a fact. Biological evolution also refers to the common descent of living organisms from shared ancestors. The evidence for historical evolution (genetic, fossil, anatomical, etc.) is so overwhelming that it is also considered a fact. The Theory of evolution describes the mechanisms that cause evolution. So evolution is both a fact and a theory.

    "Darwin's theory has never been proven." - Not true. The word "theory" in no way implies uncertainty in the scientific community. On the contrary, in this case "theory" means a statement of what are held to be the general laws, principles, or causes of something known or observed. Any honest scientist will tell you that nothing can ever be proven with 100% certainty, not even something that is considered a fact (even though the evidence in favor of it is so overwhelming that there is very little doubt anymore). Evolution is as well supported by evidence as the theory of gravity or the heliocentric theory of our solar system. Darwin's theory remains the cornerstone of modern biology and it increases our understanding of issues of major importance to society, including research into virulent new diseases as well as genetics.

    "Intelligent design (ID) is a valid alternative to evolution and should be taught." - Not true. Intelligent design holds that certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection. Intelligent design is not a scientific theory. Supernaturalism is not included within science because it is untestable. By introducing the supernatural we undermine the very basis for empirical testing. To teach and therefore accept ID we would be allowing all empirical investigation to stop, for scientists would have a ready-made answer for everything. As one scientist recently put it. "In the spirit of balance and fairness, ID proponents would like to weaken the coverage of evolution to the point that we risk raising a generation of young people so mistrustful of science that they turn their backs on the scientific community and abandon science as a way of knowing about the world and improving the human condition." (Kenneth Miller - Brown University)

    Best Firefox Extension Ever
    Okay, everyone who's switched over to Firefox from IE has most likely come across the one thing IE has that FF doesn't. Stored cache. When FF has to close for what ever reason, crash or power goes out, you loose information that's been stored in the cache. And for those of us still on dial-up it's a nightmare. Having to load EVERY page again. Well, here's the answer. Cache Saver. It keeps the cache from being deleted when FF crashes. You should check it out. There is one complaint though. For some reason it doesn't save the page(s) you have open at the time of the crash. I don't know why.

    Wednesday Heroes
    I'm going to do something very different this week with the Wednesday Hero post. I'm not going to profile an American soldier. I'm not going to profile a soldier, period.
    Read More
    Rather I'm going to profile the victims of Saddam Hussein. Think about all the news reports we get about this trial. What are every one of them about? Only one thing. Saddam Hussein's latest ourburst. That's it. The reports talk about how his outbursts could overshadow the testimony of his victims, then they proceeded to ignore that testimony to talk about the outbursts. Guess they're right. Well, I wanted to highlight some of that testimony. These people were able not only to survive the absolute worst things the human mind could imagine, but they were able to go into that court room and tell their stories knowing full well that they could be killed by Saddam loyalists. They are heroes. Sad thing is I could only find a few articles that have printed some of this testimony, because as I've said the pieces focus more on the circus than the victims. Some of this is a little harsh and could be too much for some. Just letting you know.

    From Post-Gazette.com
    The turbulent proceedings included the first confrontation in open court between Saddam and some of his government's victims. Two men from the farming village of Dujail described the harsh collective punishment meted out to the village and its people after shots were fired on Saddam's car from a nearby orchard in 1982.

    "It was like a war front in Dujail," said the first witness, Ahmad Hassan Mohammed, who was 15 at the time. The government bombed the fields, shot some suspects and rounded up men, women and children, Mr. Mohammed said. He and others spent more than three years in prison.

    At times choking back tears, Mr. Mohammed described how seven of his brothers were executed, and how they were all interrogated and tortured. One brother was tortured with electric shock in front of his father, he said, sobbing.

    "They knew who was most beloved by his father. They took him, 16 years old. Before my father, they beat him. Then they said: "Kill him.'"

    Mr. Mohammed was followed to the witness stand by Jawad Abdul Aziz Jawad, who was 10 at the time of the assassination attempt. He described how giant bulldozers descended on the village three months after the shooting, ripping through farms and plowing over houses.

    From Austinnews.net
    The prosecution's first witness was a 14-year-old boy in 1982. The witness said members of Saddam's regime used electric shocks on their victims, and poured melted plastic onto people's skin. He said that's how Saddam's men killed and tortured people following a 1982 assassination attempt against Saddam.

    From Yahoo News Asia
    The woman -- just 16 years old when she was detained and held for four years -- said with her voice electronically disguised that a man ordered her to undress before pistol whipping her and lashing her with cables, her legs up.

    "He said take off your clothes. He hit me with the pistol and I was forced to take my clothes and he lifted my legs upward and he hit me with cables and asked me to talk," she said.

    Later taken to a room that was "all red' with another girl, the witness said they used their shoes as pillows to get some rest.

    "We put shoes as pillows. Then the door was locked and from a small window they gave us two loaves of bread," said the woman, who was asked by the judge but could not identify her tormentors.

    "My youth ... was destroyed," said the woman recalling the legacy of her experiences. Today she described herself as a housewife.

    From CNN.com
    I like how they say "alleged torture". But this is a little more from Ahmad Hassan Mohammed from the first story.

    Ahmed Hassan Mohammed, a resident of Dujail, told the court how he and others -- including women and children -- were rounded up and transported to intelligence headquarters in Baghdad, where they were tortured. The women, including young girls, were raped, sometimes before the eyes of the men, he said.

    He named his torturers and their relations to the defendants on trial and graphically and tearfully described what he saw.

    Of one man, Mohammed said: "They broke him. Broke his arm, his leg. This is during torture. They also shot at his foot, all of that during interrogation. He died under torture. They broke all his body parts."

    Mohammed described seeing Hussein's half brother and co-defendant, Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti, wearing a cowboy hat, red boots and carrying an assault rifle.

    I hate to be one to regurgitate the news. If you don't know Cheney had a hunting "accident" by now - please never vote again & don't breed.

    My parents (liberals) still watch CNN, read the Boston Globe & Time Magazine. I am sure they will get carried away with this whole shooting thing and won't even notice that Al Gore committed treason. Isn't that the agenda of the media - use the news to promote their "agenda" and they really do have one! Sorry folks, but when former Presidents (Carter & Clinton included) go overseas and spew hate for their country and create anti-American sentiment, they fuel one more whacko to maybe want to do harm to a soldier. TREASON!!!

    Don't give me the "freedom of speech" crud either!!! With freedom of speech comes responsibility - and they aren't showing they are responsible!!!

    Ancient Times: The beginnings of the holiday started with a dissident tribe of pagans, later identified as a band of Republican Presidential Candidates. At that time Hallmark cards were not able to use the modern techniques of printing such as inkjets and lasers. Instead the company used the blood of goats of dogs as primitive forms of ink. To keep the locals unsuspicious of their capitalistic exploitation of the holiday they presented the dead animals as a sacrifice to Lupercalia. Also the origins of dominatrix and sadomasochism are seen at this time when young men would use the hides to whip the infertile women of the town asking them "Who's yo' daddy?"

    Christianity: Now, let the pagans have their uncivilized fun and festivals, and who has to come along and ruin it? First, it was PETA blowing the whistle on animal cruelty. Then it was the early Roman Catholic Church, who was jealous that the most exciting holiday on their calendar was forty days of giving something up. So, they adopted the holiday to have wild parties. They gave the holiday the new name of St. Valentine's Day. Saint valentine performed secret marriages and was known in certain Bishops' circles as a master of Kama Sutra. Later, he was sentenced to death for some oppressive reason. Before his death he sent his lover a WalMart Dilbert Card ($2.85) signed "Your Valentine."

    Medieval: In medieval Europe, the people believed that the 14th of February was the day that birds selected their mates. Hence the term "lovebirds." Wow, they sure were clever. They couldn't figure out how to cook meat, but they had time to think up witty phrases like, lovebirds. The first card was officially sent at this time, a Hallmark fold out, ($3.50) from a prisoner in France. The card was actually a cryptic message plotting his escape. Unfortunately, the wife was flattered by the message of love and ignored the plan. Later her husband was beheaded.

    Victorian: Everything was mass-produced, and materialism killed the spirit of the holiday. Oh the joys of the Industrial Revolution. It turned the world into faceless masses, inspiring Ayn Rand novels, and in turn inspiring lots of college kids not to pursue a major in English.

    Modern: Today children and lovers celebrate the holiday together. Children give candy hearts either for the sugar high or a peck on the cheek behind Mrs. Weidlemeyer's classroom. On the other hand, lovers exchange chocolate hearts. They become disillusioned, thinking that on that night, instead of performing the act of sex, they will delve into the art of making love. Lovers fill every restaurant in town, leaving singles to make reservations even at the drive-thru line at McDonalds. Taken from here.
