“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”
– Ashley Smith

“To stand on the firing parapet and expose yourself to danger; to stand and fight a thousand miles from home when you’re all alone and outnumbered and probably beaten; to spit on your hands and lower the pike; to stand fast over the body of Leonidas the King; to be rear guard at Kunu-Ri; to stand and be still to the Birkenhead Drill; these are not rational acts. They are often merely necessary.”― Dr. Jerry Pournelle

It’s sad to think of the losses due to wars though out the ages.

One would think that humans would have learned from their mistakes.

Let’s bring all the girls, boys, women, and men home now! We have so many politicians and bureaucrats to send in their place if it’s really needed!

“…if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” -Churchill, The Second World War, vol. 1, The Gathering Storm (London: Cassell, 1948, 272, on the British guarantee to Poland in Spring 1939.

QUOTE: “I don’t know, man. I’m just a fisherman.” — David Morris

FROM THE WSJ

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“I don’t know, man. I’m just a fisherman.”

Capt. David Morris on being nervous during a failed polygraph test for a multimillion-dollar fishing competition. High-stakes tournaments are using the tests to tamp down fish tales.

Seems a simple thing to me. Start the “contest fishing time” when the boat leaves the dock? 

No polygraph required!
