A little history most people will never know.
Interesting Veterans Statistics off the Vietnam Memorial Wall
There are 58,267 names now listed on that polished black wall, including those added in 2010.
The names are arranged in the order in which they were taken from us by date and within each date the names are alphabetized. It is hard to believe it is 36 years since the last casualties.
The first known casualty was Richard B. Fitzgibbon, of North Weymouth , Mass. Listed by the U.S. Department of Defense as having been killed on June 8, 1956. His name is listed on the Wall with that of his son, Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Richard B. Fitzgibbon III, who was killed on Sept. 7, 1965.
There are three sets of fathers and sons on the Wall.
39,996 on the Wall were just 22 or younger.
8,283 were just 19 years old.
The largest age group, 33,103 were 18 years old.
12 soldiers on the Wall were 17 years old.
5 soldiers on the Wall were 16 years old.
One soldier, PFC Dan Bullock was 15 years old.
997 soldiers were killed on their first day in Vietnam ..
1,448 soldiers were killed on their last day in Vietnam ..
31 sets of brothers are on the Wall and 31 sets of parents lost two of their sons.
54 soldiers attended Thomas Edison High School in Philadelphia . I wonder why so many from one school.
8 Women are on the Wall. Nursing the wounded.
244 soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War; 153 of them are on the Wall.
Beallsville, Ohio with a population of 475 lost 6 of her sons.
West Virginia had the highest casualty rate per capita in the nation. There are 711 West Virginians on the Wall.
The Marines of Morenci - They led some of the scrappiest high school football and basketball teams that the little Arizona copper town of Morenci (pop. 5,058) had ever known and cheered. They enjoyed roaring beer busts. In quieter moments, they rode horses along the Coronado Trail, stalked deer in the Apache National Forest. And in the patriotic camaraderie typical of Morenci's mining families, the nine graduates of Morenci High enlisted as a group in the Marine Corps. Their service began on Independence Day, 1966. Only 3 returned home.
The Buddies of Midvale - LeRoy Tafoya, Jimmy Martinez, Tom Gonzales were all boyhood friends and lived on three consecutive streets in Midvale, Utah on Fifth, Sixth and Seventh avenues. They lived only a few yards apart. They played ball at the adjacent sandlot ball field. And they all went to Vietnam. In a span of 16 dark days in late 1967, all three would be killed. LeRoy was killed on Wednesday, Nov. 22, the fourth anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination. Jimmy died less than 24 hours later on Thanksgiving Day. Tom was shot dead assaulting the enemy on Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor
The most casualty deaths for a single day was on January 31, 1968 ~ 245 deaths.
The most casualty deaths for a single month was May 1968 - 2,415 casualties were incurred.
For most Americans who read this they will only see the numbers that the Vietnam War created. To those of us who survived the war, and to the families of those who did not, we see the faces, we feel the pain that these numbers created. We are, until we too pass away, haunted with these numbers, because they were our friends, fathers, husbands, wives, sons and daughters.

Americans are migrating from less-free liberal states to more-free conservative states, where they are doing better economically, according to a new study published Thursday by the George Mason University's Mercatus Center.
The "Freedom in the 50 States" study measured economic and personal freedom using a wide range of criteria, including tax rates, government spending and debt, regulatory burdens, and state laws covering land use, union organizing, gun control, education choice and more.
It found that the freest states tended to be conservative "red" states, while the least free were liberal "blue" states.
The freest state overall, the researchers concluded, was North Dakota, followed by South Dakota, Tennessee, New Hampshire and Oklahoma.
The least free state by far was New York, followed by California, New Jersey, Hawaii and Rhode Island. ...

As reported by Breitbart.com this week, anti-gun U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) was interviewed at a rally on February 13, and admitted to the reporter that proposed gun and magazine ban legislation (S. 150, the "Assault Weapons Ban of 2013") is "just the beginning" of a broader gun control agenda that will eventually include handguns.
According to the article, Schakowsky--who has a well-deserved "F" rating from NRA's Political Victory Fund--told the reporter, "We want everything on the table. This is a moment of opportunity. There's no question about it."
"We're on a roll now," Schakowsky continued, "and I think we've got to take the--you know, we're gonna push as hard as we can and as far as we can."
The reporter asked, "So the assault weapons ban is just the beginning?"
To which Schakowsky replied, "Oh absolutely. I mean, I'm against handguns. We have, in Illinois, the Council Against Handgun... something. Yeah, I'm a member of that. So, absolutely."
The interview further displayed Schakowsky's constitutional ignorance and disdain when she asserted that a handgun ban would be possible, despite recent Supreme Court rulings rejecting such bans. And she exposed the true goal of many gun grabbers on Capitol Hill.
When the reporter said, "We'll never get a handgun ban with the Second Amendment as stated." Schakowsky responded, "I don't know. I don't know that we can't. And there may be an allowance, once again, for communities--I have communities in my district that prohibited handguns within their borders. The rights of municipalities and states to view that as a sensible way to keep people safe--I don't think it's precluded."
When the reporter asked why legislators were not pressing for a handgun ban, Schakowsky responded, "Because we're not going to be able to win that. Not now."

Dr. Benjamin Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital who garnered national headlines for his pointed remarks at last month's National Prayer Breakfast, says that President Obama and his political allies are trying to "destroy the country."
"Let's say somebody were [in the White House] and they wanted to destroy this nation," Carson postulated in remarks at the Conservative Political Action Conference. "I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained the country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military. It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now."
Carson, who is 62, said that the blame for the nation's current state of affairs does not lie with "any one particular person." His barbs, though, were clearly aimed at President Obama. ...

She gave me another sexy little smile, reached into her knickers and pulled out a crumpled fifty dollar note.
"Now," she said, "Have you ever seen 40,000 dollars all crumpled up?"
"No," I said, intrigued.
"Well, go and take a quick look in the garage."
The Democrats know that an assault weapon ban will do nothing to prevent random violence from deranged people. They know that banning large gun clips will do nothing. Their plan is to ban these things and then after nothing changes they will say they have to do more and will push to ban more and more guns until they have us unarmed. At that point they will, like Hitler, be able to control us.
And that is why I despise those un-American Democrats who support this. Only a fool would vote for someone who wants to take away their liberty. But through history we have seen it happen again and again. If you don't stand up for your own rights then don't expect anyone else to do it for you.

… "Homeland Security aims to buy 1.6b rounds of ammo, so far to little notice. It confirmed that the Department of Homeland Security has issued an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. As reported elsewhere, some of this purchase order is for hollow-point rounds, forbidden by international law for use in war, along with a frightening amount specialized for snipers. Also reported elsewhere, at the height of the Iraq War the Army was expending less than 6 million rounds a month. Therefore 1.6 billion rounds would be enough to sustain a hot war for 20+ years. In America.
Add to this perplexing outré purchase of ammo, DHS now is showing off its acquisition of heavily armored personnel carriers, repatriated from the Iraqi and Afghani theaters of operation." ...
Why? Perhaps it's not so far fetched to think Obama does want to be a dictator and will use this to do it. I think I and everyone else should buy guns and get the ammo for it while you're at it. Am I crazy? No, just cautions. Plus, I never trusted dems to uphold American values or the Constitution.

The city is 'enjoined and permanently restrained from implementing or enforcing the new regulations,' New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling decided Monday.
The regulations are 'fraught with arbitrary and capricious consequences,' the judge wrote. 'The simple reading of the rule leads to the earlier acknowledged uneven enforcement even within a particular city block, much less the city as a whole….the loopholes in this rule effectively defeat the state purpose of the rule.'"

… "If this is indeed the gamesmanship it appears to be, then, well, one such turn deserves another, right? Representative Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, has introduced a measure that would, if passed, cut off all funding for transporting President Obama to and from the golf course as long as the tours remain shut down. Since Obama travels with a huge entourage of federal employees and is of course protected by the Secret Service everywhere he goes, the effect would be to prevent him from golfing at all.
Gohmert is a grandstander. He’s famous for, among other things, warning about ‘terror babies’; signing on to birther legislation; and casting the lone vote against a bill to remove the word ‘lunatic’ from federal law because, he said, ‘not only should we not eliminate the word ‘lunatic’ from federal law when the most pressing issue of the day is saving our country from bankruptcy, we should use the word to describe the people who want to continue with business as usual in Washington.’ In this case, the President’s golf game has little real impact but it quite effectively riles up conservatives, and Gohmert submitted his proposal as an amendment to a continuing resolution to fund the government. The House leadership was not allowing any amendments to the C.R. to be considered, so there was quite literally no chance that it could pass.
But, in this case, Gohmert was just giving the White House a taste of its own demagoguery. So it’s hard not to appreciate what he did—or, even, depending on your perspective, to love it a little. It could be an opportunity for the White House to start adhering to a new, better standard when it comes to the sequester fight: if you’re operating at Louie Gohmert’s level, try harder."
Obama, "I'll close the Whitehouse tours", Gohmert, "You can't play golf"

MT. VERNON, TEXAS, WHOREHOUSE SUES LOCAL CHURCH OVER LIGHTNING STRIKE!
Diamond D's brothel began construction on an expansion of their building to increase their ever-growing business. In response, the local Baptist Church started a campaign to block the business from expanding -- with morning, afternoon, and evening prayer sessions at their church. Work on Diamond D's progressed right up until the week before the grand reopening when lightning struck the whorehouse and burned it to the ground!
After the cat-house was burned to the ground by the lightning strike, the church folks were rather smug in their outlook, bragging about "the power of prayer." But late last week 'Big Jugs' Jill Diamond, the owner/madam, sued the church, the preacher and the entire congregation on the grounds that the church ... "was ultimately responsible for the demise of her building and her business -- either through direct or indirect divine actions or means."
In its reply to the court, the church vehemently and voraciously denied any and all responsibility or any connection to the building's demise. The crusty old judge read through the plaintiff's complaint and the defendant's reply, and at the opening hearing he commented, "I don't know how the hell I'm going to decide this damn case, but it appears from the paperwork that we now have a whorehouse owner who staunchly believes in the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that thinks it's all bullshit!"
A little boy comes down to breakfast.
Since they live on a farm, his mother asks if he had done his chores.
" Not yet, " said the little boy.
His mother tells him no breakfast until he does his chores.
Well, he's a little teed off, so he goes to feed the chickens, and he kicks a chicken. He goes to feed the cows, and he kicks a cow. He goes to feed the pigs, and he kicks a pig. He goes back in for breakfast and his mother gives him a bowl of dry cereal.
" How come I don't get any eggs and bacon and why don't I have any milk in my cereal? " he asks.
" Well, " his mother says, " I saw you kick a chicken, so you don't get any eggs for a week. I saw you kick the pig, so you don't get any bacon for a week either. I saw you kick the cow so for a week you aren't getting any milk. "
Just then, his father comes down for breakfast and kicks the pussy cat halfway across the kitchen.
The little boy looks up at his mother with a smile, and says, " You gonna tell him or should I? "
"The impending sequester did not prevent the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) from acting in late February to seal a $50-million deal to purchase new uniforms for its agents--uniforms that will be partly manufactured in Mexico.
Soon after this new investment in TSA uniforms, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned Americans that the lines are already lengthening at airports due to the sequester.
'We are already seeing the effect on the ports of entry, the big airports for example,' Napolitano told Politico on Monday. 'Some of them had very long lines this weekend.'
'Look people, I don't mean to scare, I mean to inform,' Napolitiano said.'If you're traveling, get to the airport earlier than you otherwise would. There's only so much we can do with personnel and please don't yell at the customs officers, the TSA officers. They aren't responsible for sequester.'" ...
Just one more reason to hate those lying democrats...

Banning the size of magazines does absolutely nothing to fix the problem of mental health. But banning them is easy for democrats to do. Solving the real problem is hard and democrats don't do hard, they do easy. That's because democrats are really dumb.

If what the dems want to do won't do any good then why do it? Perhaps, as so often in the past when they make a law that doesn't work, they just do another law that in this case would be more restrictive and continue ad infinitum until they reach their true goal of taking away all our guns. Therefore it is important to stop them in their tracks and don't let them get their foot in our door and on our necks. If you think this is an overreaction then you need to read history. This won't be the first time an oppressive government took guns away from the people.
" Officials at a Roman Catholic church in Pittsburgh have a holy mystery on their hands. They say someone, somehow stole the building's organ -- and the 200 massive pipes required to play it.
WPXI-TV reported Friday that the music equipment worth $200,000 has disappeared from St. Justin's Church.
Church business manager Skip Hary says he's baffled how anyone could get the organ out of the building.
He says it would either have to be maneuvered down narrow flights of steps, or lowered over a balcony. And the pipes can only be accessed by a ladder into the ceiling." ...
Who would they sell it to? Another church?

… "Experts believe that this reluctance has less to do with a lack of customer demand and more to do with protecting high margin broadband businesses. Companies like Time Warner Cable make around a 97 percent profit on existing services, Bernstein Research analyst Craig Moffet told the MIT Technology Review this month. But Verizon is more interested in wireless broadband, on which it can make an ‘absolute killing,’ by charging per gigabyte for usage, broadband industry watcher and DSL Reports editor Karl Bode told Wired earlier this year." ...
97% profit eh? They don't got it therefore you don't need it.
… "Viewed correctly, it turns out that more than $300 billion — about a third — of Obama's proposed 'spending cuts' are actually revenue increases.
As a result, instead of $1.2 trillion in spending cuts called for by the sequester over the next decade, Obama would add more than $1 trillion in revenues, while cutting outlays only about $600 billion. And much of those aren't real cuts, but tiny reductions in projected spending growth over the next decade.
And in the end, his plan, such as it is, will do nothing to forestall the nation's oncoming debt crisis.
After four years, Obama's unseriousness as a president continues to surprise us."
Obama's problem is really simple. He's knows how to campaign, he doesn't know how to govern. But he campaigns really good, look how many people he convinced to vote for him.

What is it about being a, man of the cloth that attracts pedophiles? Maybe walking around in what for all intents and purposes is a dress, has something to do with it. Men of the cloth sure do like to get all dressed up in fine robes and fancy hats don't they? My respect for man made religion is about as low as it can get, if it exists at all. Their first commandment should be, LEAVE THE CHILDREN ALONE! But then the "church" would probably have trouble finding enough men to join it.
"After he was fired Thursday, Andrew Mason wrote a note to his Groupon colleagues filled with the same offbeat humor, charm and candor that defined his tenure as chief executive of the daily deals company he co-founded.
'After four and a half intense and wonderful years as CEO of Groupon, I've decided that I'd like to spend more time with my family,' the letter began. 'Just kidding — I was fired today.'"
Samsung!: "By far and away the weirdest ruling in the worldwide smartphone and tablet wars came down last year in the UK, where a publicity order forcing Apple to promote Samsung's products and to make itself ridiculous in public was upheld by an appeals court, and where Apple's efforts to comply with the order were deemed 'false and misleading'. I thought Apple was being treated way too harshly because in the end it was just trying to defend its intellectual property rights in court and merely had refused to withdraw a German lawsuit after a UK ruling by a lower court.
The judge who gave the first opinion for the appeals court (as you can see at the start of the published decision) was The Rt. Hon. Professor Sir Robin Jacob. As Wikipedia explains, he 'retired from the Court of Appeal in March 2011' to become a professor, but under Section 9 of the Senior Courts Act 1981, ex-judges can still be invited to sit on the bench. On that basis, Sir Robin Jacob handled the Samsung v. Apple case that made headline news around the world because it appeared that Apple filed frivolous lawsuits (which is not true). In a ruling on Apple's first attempt to comply with the publicity order, Sir Robin Jacob even noted a 'lack of integrity'.
For someone so concerned with 'integrity' it is utterly unusual to issue a high-profile and extreme ruling in favor of a particular party (Samsung in this case) only to be hired as an expert by that same party in another dispute. But that's what has happened here, and I wonder how certain people in Cupertino feel about it." ...
Lack of integrity indeed!
