My husband is not smart.

According to John Forbes Kerry.


“You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”



Reeeallly? Nice to know that's how you feel, Mister Kerry.


If you want to take a deeper look into Mister Kerry's appearance that led to his wonderful statement, you can read about it over at Michelle Malkin's place.


But it gets even better!

He was then kind enough to release a statement clarifying his previous comments.

“If anyone thinks a veteran would criticize the more than 140,000 heroes serving in Iraq and not the president who got us stuck there, they're crazy. This is the classic G.O.P. playbook. I’m sick and tired of these despicable Republican attacks that always seem to come from those who never can be found to serve in war, but love to attack those who did.

I’m not going to be lectured by a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium, or doughy Rush Limbaugh, who no doubt today will take a break from belittling Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s disease to start lying about me just as they have lied about Iraq. It disgusts me that these Republican hacks, who have never worn the uniform of our country lie and distort so blatantly and carelessly about those who have.

The people who owe our troops an apology are George W. Bush and Dick Cheney who misled America into war and have given us a Katrina foreign policy that has betrayed our ideals, killed and maimed our soldiers, and widened the terrorist threat instead of defeating it. These Republicans are afraid to debate veterans who live and breathe the concerns of our troops, not the empty slogans of an Administration that sent our brave troops to war without body armor.

Bottom line, these Republicans want to debate straw men because they’re afraid to debate real men. And this time it won’t work because we’re going to stay in their face with the truth and deny them even a sliver of light for their distortions. No Democrat will be bullied by an administration that has a cut and run policy in Afghanistan and a stand still and lose strategy in Iraq.”


(h/t Matt over at Blackfive for this)


Ok, lemme get this straight. You insult my husband for not being smart enough to avoid getting "stuck" in Iraq. And then you have the audacity to call ME "crazy" for seeing that comment as an insult? You're batting 1.000 right now Mister Kerry.


I believe the old saying goes, "Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool rather than open it and remove all doubt."


Stupidity should be painful.


People voted for this asshat? Good grief.


I hope McCain, Duncan Hunter, and the rest of the GOP and the military at large eat him alive. Let us see how quickly his allies jump to his defense - at least that will give you a clear picture of who truly supports and believes in our military and who does not. (some may not need the real-life example; for others it may come in handy)


And, for the record, I happen to think that my husband is one of the smartest people I know. It has nothing to do with his college education (though he does have a college degree) and EVERYTHING to do with his brain. But vanity and superficiality prevent Mister Kerry from understanding that about my husband or any other member of the Armed Services.

NEED HELP PLEASE

MacGyver and I have a friend that we've known since college (he and MacGyver were fraternity brothers and roommates) and he has been injurred and is on his way to Germany. Can anyone track down some information on him for me? I know I'm not family - he does not have a wife at this time - and I'd like to get some information to MacGyver if possible.

Please, if anyone can track down some information about him, contact me at homefrontsix-at-yahoo-dot-com


Thanks


UPDATE:Thank you MaryAnn for all of your help. Our friend is on his way to Germany and in good hands. His condition seems to be non-critical so that is a blessing. We are so thankful.

Seriously?

Defiant Iraqi PM disavows timetable


"I affirm that this government represents the will of the people and no one has the right to impose a timetable on it," the prime minister said.


As long as OUR service members are there, putting THEIR lives on the line because YOU and your government and the people of YOUR country can't find the balls necessary to stand up to the foreign fighters and tell them to go the @&%$ home so that you all can get on with your lives and not live in CONSTANT fear, and as long as OUR country is sending MY tax dollars over there to rebuild your freaking country because you people ONCE AGAIN couldn't find the backbone to stand up to a freaking lunatic dictator...YOU BET YOUR ASS WE HAVE THE RIGHT IMPOSE TIMETABLES!

You represent the "will of the people"? Then step up and start protecting them so WE DON'T HAVE TO. Didn't anyone ever tell you NOT to bite the hand that feeds you?? You might want to mosey on down to the market place, Mr. PrimeMinisterMan, and get you a new pair of underware because it seems to me that you are getting just a little to big for your britches.



Crowds of Shiite men, some carrying pistols and others hoisting giant posters of al-Sadr, swarmed onto the district's streets Wednesday morning, chanting, "America has insulted us."

Throughout the day and into the night, U.S. F-16 jet fighters growled across the Baghdad sky, and at one point the report of tank cannon fire echoed across the city five times in quick succession.

Streets were empty and shops closed, although the district still had electricity from the national power grid.


We've INSULTED you? Seriously? Really. Insulted? Seriously. We deposed one of the NASTIEST dictators on the face of the planet. You have a government that "represents the will of the people" (see quote at beginning of post). You have electricity in areas that haven't seen electricity EVER (yet you all choose to close up shop and go home rather than stay open and make money in order to improve your standard of living). And you have THE BEST military force in the world laying their lives on the line to the best of their ability (well, the best of their ability while limited by all sorts of bullshit politics and ridiculous concerns about "political correctness" and "winning hearts and minds") and yet WE insult YOU. Riiiight.


I am sick of this. I am sick of watching my husband and the rest of our military forces bust their ass for a nation that is unwilling to put forth even the most meager bit of effort when it comes to taking responsibility for themselves and their future. How DARE you??? You think it would be BETTER if we left? Yeah, we see how well you all did the last time we tucked tail and ran. You all got yourselves in an even deeper pile of dog doodoo.

So, no thanks. I'd rather we do this and do it right, and do it right now. Because I don't want my SON to have to clean up the THIRD round of this shit 15 years from now thankyouverymuch.

So, Mister PrimeMininsterMan, why don't you spend less time on your knees under Muqtada alSadr's desk and more time on your feet leading your country out of the f$@*&%$g dark ages so my husband can COME HOME?


Good freaking grief people. Seriously.

Well, THAT'S a pisser

Our morning routine consists of the following:

1.) roust children from bed
2.) remind them to visit the bathroom
3.) mix up Carnation Instant Breakfast in sippy cups and distribute
4.) turn on TV to watch Dora the Explorer

It's a nice little routine. We like it. This morning I get to step 4 with no problem. I go to push the "ON" button at the bottom of the TV and it gives WAY! Darn thing falls INTO the control console!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Hmm...I don't think it's supposed to DO that. We only have 1 TV. I do not believe in having TVs in the bedroom. So we have ONE. Thankfully we have a remote for this TV so hopefully it will continue to function, at least until MacGyver gets home for R&R and can tear into it. It's entirely too big and heavy for me to schlep to the repair shop nor do I really like the idea of being without it for however long it will take them to fix it.

We don't watch much TV but I am a single parent at the moment with 2 small children, very little sanity, and an approaching rainy season (therefore outside play will be limited). Can't say I'm really a fan of being without a TV for any period of time.

Lovely. Score one for the Deployment Gremlins. Little bastards. Heh.

"Broke College Student" decor

Airforcewife has a post up about her decorating style over at SpouseBUZZ and it got me to thinking about my own decorating style (or lack, thereof).


When MacGyver and I were married, my father (a woodworker) asked me what I wanted as a wedding present. I told him I wanted a mission style bed made out of cherry wood. That and my photo albums and scrapbooks are really the only two things I own (can't speak for MacGyver on this one) that would cause me grief if they were to be damaged or destroyed. Everything else is either purely utilitarian in nature or a hand-me-down, or both. The leather sectional couch was given to us by MacGyver's parents when they got new furniture. The oak dining set came from an old cabin up in Big Bear. The china cabinet is actually an old stereo cabinet that we found at an antique store in Colorado. One of our dressers is MacGyver's old dresser from when he was a kid and the other is an old dresser we found at an antique store in Tennessee. Our computer desk is 2 filing cabinets and a slab of plywood.

All of it seems to hold up well to the abuse that the children and the military movers dish out to it. None of it is irreplacable. None of it is expensive (I had a hard time spending $400 on our entertainment center. I think that is the most I have EVER spent on a piece of furniture in my life.).

Our decor matches the style of our furniture. We have family pictures up but the focal point of our wall decor is 5 mounted and framed posters from The New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado. Yep, beer posters. What says "college" like beer posters?? Granted, they are nicely done and nicely framed but still, they are beer posters. However, I like them and they remind me of Colorado so they stay and always will. Maybe not always in the living room where they are right now but they will stay.

The only other piece of decor that really means much to us is the rug that MacGyver's brother sent us from Afghanistan.

EVENTUALLY I would like to get REAL furniture. Stores like Restoration Hardware, Ethan Allen, and Pottery Barn have always fascinated me. I walk through those stores and just drool. I would love to be stationed overseas if for no other reason than to be able to bring back some lovely furniture.

But the idea of the kids climbing all over it and leaving smudgy fingerprints on it or the movers destroying it is enough to give me ulcers. So the "real" furniture will have to wait until either the kids are older or the military movers are no longer a part of our lives. Maybe that will be part of the retirement celebration - new furniture to go in our new house. Ah, something to look forward to!

So, if you ask me what my "style" of decor is...I'd have to answer "lived in". Sounds better than "broke college student", doesn't it?

What's YOUR style?

For us.

Got this from a friend and, although it refers specifically to Army wives, I think it holds true for all military spouses.

***********************************


For all of you who wake up in the morning, lay there for a few moments, trying to swallow the sick feeling in the pit of your stomach as you wonder where your soldier is, or how he's doing...this is for you.

For all of you who start a countdown the minute he leaves, and continue to until he is back in your arms again...this is for you.

For all of you who tear up everytime "Far Away" comes on the radio, or who press repeat when "Come Home Soon" plays in their car...this one's for you.

For all of you who see Army billboards, ads in the paper, or commercials on TV and next notice the tears rolling down your cheeks, this is for you.

This is for you.

I am one of you too. This is for us.

For all the times we sleep with our phones on the loudest possible volume, just as to not miss the call that just MIGHT come...

For all the times we roll our eyes when another girl is depressed because she hasn't seen her guy in a week...

For all the times we hear our soldier's name mentioned out loud, and are momentarily frozen...in a trance...in love.

For all the late nights that we spend alone, cuddling with our stuffed animals, wearing our soldiers army sweatshirts and sweatpants, and clutching the precious dog tags around our necks...

This one's for us.

We may feel weak on the inside, but on the outside we're strong.
We may be drowning in tears on the inside, but on the outside, we are a rock.
We may want to crawl in bed and sleep until our man comes home, but instead, we get up and go on with our daily lives with our men in our hearts.
We may feel like we're slowly dying with each day we spend apart from our men, but instead, we put one foot in front of the other, and take each day as it comes.

We are strong, and we are proud.
We have more love in our hearts than we ever thought possible, and for this, we are thankful. We are thankful for our men and also for each other. We are Army gals, and we lean on each other.

Alone we are weak, but together, we are strong. We help each other, and we survive.

To all you Army (and the rest of you dealing with deployments) gals out there, hold your head up and be proud.

We are connected, ALWAYS.

So, Grasshopper, what did you learn?

The Big Island quake that rolled everyone here out of bed (or shook them out of bed, depending on who you talk to and what kind of bed they were sleeping in at the time) was a good dress rehearsal for other, more serious, emergencies that may arise in the future.

I grew up in Southern California. My father is a Safety Engineer by trade. He has worked for an international construction firm as well as the Southern California Gas Company in the field of safety. The man is, bless his heart, a walking public service announcement. Needless to say, I NEVER ran with scissors (or a lollipop in my mouth) and I always have disaster preparedness supplies on hand. Not that I would have ever wanted to actually experience Hurricane Katrina but if I had to live through that (assuming that my house was not flooded or blown away) I would have done just fine, thankyouverymuch. It would not have been pretty and there would have been much crying and gnashing of teeth but I would have been just fine.

However, as prepared as one may be, there are always lessons to be learned. My friend discusses the things she learned over at her blog. Some of our lessons were the same (or similar. I would have used 100-mile-per-hour tape but that's just because I'm a nerd) and some were not (our 4 food groups for the earthquake aftermath were peanut butter, chocolate, beer, and pretzels). So what did I learn? Here are a few things:

1.) that my husband being a battery hound is actually a GOOD thing! (I usually give him grief over this) We have MagLites and they use D batteries and we had plenty of those. The kids each have small flashlights that usually don't have batteries in them and I had plenty of AA batteries for those. (Thanks babe!)

2.) that I need more water on hand. I was able to fill the tubs with water and fill up the stock pot and a few jugs I have with water. I also had a case of bottled water in the outside fridge in case we needed it but I think we need more, just to be safe. I also had bleach on hand and I *think* there are water purification tablets in the big, giant camping box. If not, I'll add those in. Funny thing is, I did not drink a DROP of water all day long. We drank the milk (didn't want it to spoil) and then we drank the juice (didn't want that to spoil). And then we moved on to the pina colada mix that was in the fridge (definitely didn't want THAT to spoil nor did we want to waste the ice we had on keeping other things cold!). Priorities, people!

3.) that I needed a car charger for my cell phone (which I have now). God forbid I not be able to TALK to people (or at least send text messages). However, right about the time my cell phone was beginning to die, it dawned on me that we have 2 power inverters. Woohoo! I hooked one up and just as I was getting ready to plug my phone in, the power came back on. God is good!

4.) that we CAN go 24+ hours without the TV (or the computer) and survive. And we will. From now on, Sundays will be "TV Free Days" (unless someone is sick...namely me). Amazingly enough, my children had no trouble whatsoever entertaining themselves without the television.

5.) that I'm really glad I have the cell phone I have because I was able to get instant message and MSN Messenger on it (my old phone didn't have that capability) though the connection was spotty at times.

6.) that news travells fast. I got a text message from MacGyver less than an hour after the quake hit. Not bad for a guy in Iraq! The even better thing was that he did not worry about me. His faith in my capabilities is incredibly flattering.

7.) that, as much as I chide him for it, I am greatful that my husband is so mechanically inclined and such a gadget hound. He had several items in the garage that were of use to me during the power outage.

8.) that I need to go do some target practice with the Beretta because I've never fired it before. I've fired the Sig but not the Beretta and I'm not sure what the kick is like. And it's been a while since I've fired anything and I'm sure I need practice. When someone is breaking into my house or threatening my family...that is NOT the time to practice.

9.) that I am greatful for our gas grill (and camping stove if I really needed it) but I want a generator too. Not a big one, just a small one.

10.) that there is much fun to be had with raincoats and umbrellas when there is no power and nothing better to do

11.) that the trade winds are a wonderful thing. I miss them when they are not here. Blech.

12.) that s'mores taste even better when the power is out!



Oh, and Haole Girl...did you save any of those graham crackers to dip INTO the chocolate frosting? THAT would have been close to perfect!

Colorado Dreamin'

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting



MacGyver and I are approaching our 10 year anniversary next year. Should be happening about the time he gets home from the sandbox. One of the things that has helped me keep my sanity is planning our 10 year anniversary getaway.

He and I attended college at Colorado State and we both feel in love with Colorado. We miss it TERRIBLY and we both hope and pray that DA (department of the Army) gets their act together and moves 4ID up to Fort Carson, Colorado (near Colorado Springs) SOON as that would mean that there would be an active-duty Chinook unit in Colorado. Anyway, I digress.

We fell in love with the state and we miss it terribly. So, for our 10 year anniversary, I am planning a week-long get-away for the two of us to our adopted home-state sometime next fall. I'm trying to skimp in some areas (using frequent flier mileage and companion tickets for airfare discounts, renting a cheap car instead of a luxury car) so that we may splurge in other areas such as lodging and food. One of the options I have found, in terms of lodging is a WONDERFUL hotel called the Hotel Teatro downtown. It looks YUMMY. I can almost smell the pine trees and crisp mountain air as I type.

Can you tell I miss it??

While we are there, we will most definitely hit up our favorite restaurant on the planet, The Flagstaff House. Hell, it's our anniversary and MacGyver has put up with me for 10 years (15 if you count all the years we will have been together). I think we should go TWICE and we just might. We will also be stopping at Beau Jo's for pizza, New Belgium and O'Dell's for beer, and Walrus Ice Cream for dessert.

I'm also hoping we can work this trip so taht we can catch a Colorado State Football game (GO RAMMIES!!! BEAT WYO!!!) and possibly a Rockies game too.

This is my way of coping, I suppose. I could spend hours on line just looking up all things relating to Colorado. I've never been so homesick for a location before in my life. Not even when I left my hometown years ago. So I plan.

I plan.

I dream.

I wait (somewhat) patiently.


Because not only will we vacation there for our 10 year anniversary, we plan to retire there someday too.


Someday. *sigh*


I can't wait.

Rocking and Rolling in the Pacific

First, those of you having a drink on my "behalf" please be aware that I am drinking right along with you! I'd much rather drink WITH someone as opposed to alone ;)


**For those of you living under rocks, Hawai'i was nailed with a magnitude 6.6 earthquake Sunday morning about 7am. It was centered under the Big Island of Hawai'i which is the southernmost island in the state and the Big Island was what took the brunt of the damage. However that damage was limited and I have not heard anything about casualties. **


Everyone in our house is good though I'm pretty sure I aged a bit this morning. Having grown up in Southern California with a father who was both a safety engineer and an employee of the Southern California Gas Company, I am well-versed in earthquakes, aftershocks, and disaster preparedness. The first thing I did this morning (after downing a shot of chocolate tequila) was get out the gun, shut off the breakers to the important stuff, and store a bunch of water. My daddy didn't raise a fool ;)

Power came back on about 3pm and has been spotty since. But it seems to be back on for good at this point. Still not sure about the water supply - there was talk about water shortages due to the power outage but I'm not sure what's up with that since the Hawaii Civil Defense website is down (go figure). We're ok with that for now. Hopefully it will hold out long enough to get the kids bathed.

The earthquake itself was pretty impressive. I had just hit the snooze button for the second time and things started rocking and rolling. I'm not a fan of earthquakes by any means so I had to remind myself not to panic and to breathe but it started to taper off so I started to relax. Then the second jolt hit and things got dicey so I bolted downstairs to check on the kids. They were still asleep so I hung out in the doorway until the shaking stopped. Power went out about 5-10 minutes later. We had decent-sized aftershock about 5-10 minutes after that and I have not felt anything since.

Preliminary reports put the magnitude at about 6.6 with the large aftershock measuring 5.8. Impressive by any standards. Even more impressive that the worst thing to happen was some damage to the hospital on the Big Island of Hawaii, some possible damage to bridges on the Big Island, and the power outage (statewide).

So we're good. Thank God for cell phones. I was able to text message and talk to MacGyver and reassure him that we are ok. I was able to stay in touch with most people via IM/Yahoo on my phone though it was spotty and still is. Thanks for the prayers, kind thoughts, and concern!

If anyone finds my brain

can you please send it back to me? Seems I have lost mine.


Wednesday night I had a class on post. My neighbor watched the kids for me. The audio/visual equipment wasn't working so class got out early. Cool beans. I had time to hit the commissary and even stop at Baskin Robbins for ice cream before I needed to come home and get the kids. I got what I needed at the commissary and grabbed a sundae at BR. Came home, put the groceries away and the ice cream in the freezer for after the kids went to bed.

We did our bedroom routine and the kids were in bed by 830. I tidied up the kitchen and the house (because my OCD doesn't allow me to leave dishes in the sink...) and then proceded to FORGET about the sundae. Yes, I forgot about my ice cream. Those of you who know me personally KNOW how out-of-character this is for me.

Once I was done with tidying up, I decided to sit down watch some of the shows I had on DVR. And I decided to pour myself a drink. So I went into my clean kitchen and poured the drink. I decided to change into my jammies before I sat down to relax so I went upstairs and changed. When I came down, I plopped down on the couch and, again, forgot about what I had prepared for myself. I watched my shows and then headed upstairs to bed.

I came down the next morning to find the drink on the counter and the sundae still in the freezer.

I am losing my mind.

So if anyone finds it, can you please send it back? Please? Thanks.

Choices

Jack Army has a post up about choices. Even though he and his family are stationed here with us, I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting them though I feel, in some ways, that I already know them. I've been reading his blog for a while - long before they moved here.

Some folks might say, "easy decision: I'm never leaving the wire! Won't get shot that way." Others might decide to go on every mission. It's not so easy as that. First, I can't go on every mission. Sometimes I have things to do on the FOB that are pretty important. As for never leaving the wire, not gonna happen. Here's what I wrestle with: if I don't go and my guys get hurt, am I going to be able to deal with the guilt I'll feel because I didn't go? Is there something I could have done that would have made a difference?



It is interesting to get a different perspective on things like this. A few weeks ago, MacGyver was finally in line to start flying again. We were chatting on Instant Messenger and he told me he was on the board to fly the next day and was VERY excited. I was too...for about 2 seconds. Until it dawned on me that I would now truly start to have to worry about him.


See, prior to that, for about 6 weeks he had not been flying (LONG story). So, in my mind, he had been relatively safe. His CHU and the bulk of his work keep him toward the center of his FOB (forward operating base) and therefore away from most of the action that happens around the perimeter. He rarely went off base therefore I rarely needed to worry. He didn't have a choice. Now he does.


I worry about him. He's in a warzone and it's natural. I'm sure Jill Army worries about Jack in the same way. At the same time, I know that it is what he does and to expect him to sit behind a desk at the center of his FOB for a year is unrealistic and unfair.


But it sure would help ease my mind.


Be safe MacGyver. Be safe Jack and Clint.. Be safe.

Kauai

One of the best things about living in Paradise is the ability to get over to the other islands easily (and for little money). We snagged $29 fares and are hanging out on Kauai at the moment.

We spent Tuesday at Tunnels Beach on the North Shore. The snorkeling was incredible. From what I hear, it rivals Haunama Bay only not as crowded. We were able to hang out with 4 sea turtles, numerous Humuhumunukunukuapua'a, yellow tang, convict tang, parrot fish, and all sorts of other sea creatures. Princess Trouble is one hell of a snorkeler too! She pretty much ditched me and took off on her own.

Little Man spent the bulk of the day chasing the chickens and roosters around. In 1992, Hurricane Iniki roared through and destroyed several chicken farms. As a result, there are chickens EVERYWHERE.

Some of you have griped that there aren't enough pictures of me. I disagree but I'll relent. This is all you get.




Tomorrow we're heading back to the North Shore for some more snorkeling. I have an underwater camera so hopefully I can get some shots of the life underwater.

The Foley Scandal

All I have to say on this issue is the following:


* Foley and the other Republicans who knew about this just cost the GOP control of the House. Thanks you dumbasses. Those that knew need to step down and face prosecution for being an accessory to a felony.

* It appears to me that there were some Democrats that were aware of what was going on as well. They should face the same fate as the Republicans that knew. Then again, the Democratic leadership or party did not seem to think that lying under oath, engaging in a sexual relationship with a minor, or running a prostitution ring from the home of a Representative worthy of any kind of prosecution or consequence, I doubt that will happen.


Foley needs to fry. But the difference between the GOP and the Democratic party is that Foley was booted the moment conclusive evidence came to light. The Democrats still hail Slick Willy as the Second Coming. Big difference.


Regardless, it is all disgusting.
