If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy. Leave comments if you want and don’t be afraid to publicly follow me.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Cougar!!!!!!!

Know Your Medal of Honor Recipients:

Captain John Wallace Scott (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on April 1, 1865, at Five Forks, Virginia. His citation reads:

Capture of the flag of the 16th South Carolina Infantry, in hand-to-hand combat.

Private Joseph Francis Scott (US Marine Corps) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on May 11, 1898, on board the U.S.S. Nashville. His citation reads:

On board the U.S.S. Nashville during the operation of cutting the cable leading from Cienfuegos, Cuba, 11 May 1898. Facing the heavy fire of the enemy, Scott displayed extraordinary bravery and coolness throughout this action.

Drummer Julian A. Scott (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on April 16, 1862, at Lees Mills, Virginia. His citation reads:

Crossed the creek under a terrific fire of musketry several times to assist in bringing off the wounded.

Today we’d like to wish my sister-in-law Cougar a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! We hope she has a GREAT day!

We’d also like to take a moment to remember that this is the day Robert E. Lee was born. Sonny might forget that today is Cougar’s birthday, but I hope and pray he does not forget that it’s General Lee’s birthday.

We would also like to recognize Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I’ve posted about this before, I believe, but it’s worth posting again. It’s a sermon of his that I’ve seen titled “Street Sweeper”. Below is a clip of it, but you can find the full version out there. I think it’s worth listening to at least once a year. I think the world would be better and more people would be happier if they did what he said here…
