The Death of Perception

Updated! I had the numbers wrong. This is the data from http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/RL32492.pdf Today it seems, what we know is what we are told by our professors and the various media we consume, News, Movies, Music etc. Folks would have you perceive the world in a way that is some what off the mark as far as reality is concerned.

Monster

When our nation trains its military, it is normal and expected that we do not wear kid gloves. I was subjected to some rather intense procedures of physical and mental training as are all Marines. It is necessary to use hard methods to train hard individuals to do hard things. I am not complaining; I consciously signed up for the deal. But imagine for a moment if you were a young lad of thirteen and out of the blue you have a Commissioned Officer holding the field grade rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army berating you, making false accusation about you, calling you a liar and threatening you with physical assault.

The following I relate to you for the purpose of reporting the events as they happened as there seems to be no place to file a report.

On Dec.10 2007, Assistant Principal Susan Carpenter at League City Intermediate called me at my place of business and asked that I call back at my earliest convenience. Before I could return her call, the school’s nurse, Ms. Mary Ponder, called me. Ms. Ponder informed me that my son, Race West, was complaining of chest pains. She proceeded to take his vitals and found that all was well except for a slightly elevated heart rate. I then questioned her as to why Assistant Principle Carpenter had called me earlier and if the two calls were related, she said ‘she didn’t know’ and asked if I wanted to speak to my son directly. I asked my son what the Assistant Principle wanted and he then related a quick tale of horror.

He mentioned that the ROTC instructor at his school had accused him of prank calling over the weekend; it was upon this accusation when Race proclaimed his innocence and was then called a liar by the ROTC instructor. When Race continued to protest to the now multiple accusations, he raised his finger to give emphasis on his veracity; the Good Lt. Colonel Hudson (U.S. Army) then said that he would break Race’s finger for pointing it.

Needless to say, it was at this point in my son’s story when I became enraged. I told Race to put me back on with the Nurse so she could transfer me to this “man among boys” However, I had to leave a message with a secretary for him instead.

But I never received a call from the coward. Instead, I got a call from the principal, Mrs. Kimberly Brouillard. Mrs. Brouillard informed me that she was accompanied by Officer (Mac) Macintosh, ‘the cop to the school’ and Lt. Col Hudson (U.S. Army), ROTC instructor for the school, and ask permission to put me on speakerphone; I agreed. Lt Col. Hudson (U.S. Army) began telling me his version of the events and said that he was sorry for saying that he would break my son’s finger. I told him that his conduct was “unsatisfactory and that when you threaten my child with bodily injury, I would come up there and whip your ass!”

When I returned home that evening, I asked Race to relay yet again what had happen and while my wife transcribed. There was one thing that Lt Col. Hudson (U.S. Army) left out of his statement his words were something to the effect of snapping my son’s neck.

When a field grade officer of the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army threatens a powerless 7th grader that is not even a student under his charge with grievous bodily injury, it can rightly be compared to Abu Ghraib. Except this is worse because not only is my son not a prisoner, but Lt. Col. Hudson (U.S. Army) holds such an exalted office of trust and confidence that is not to be taken lightly. Certainly this is not representative of the U.S. Army’s Officer Corps. This is not the conduct of an officer and a gentleman.

The fact that a man wearing the same uniform that Alvin York and Audie Murphy wore is abusing his rank and position by terrorizing a 7th grader who is not even in ROTC is beyond the pale. This uniform that he disgraces has typically been worn by men that lift the weight of tyranny.

‘Conduct unbecoming,’ I guess, is one way to describe terrorizing a defenseless lad. But to whom can one report this? On December 11th, I attempted to make a report of this incident to the League City Police Department and they said it was outside of their jurisdiction. I was informed that I had to make my report to the liaison officer to the school (Macintosh) but when I asked Officer Macintosh if he had made a report of the previous day’s events, he said he had not. I told him I wanted to file a report. His response to my request was that if I filed a report, Lt. Col. Hudson (U.S. Army) would file suit against me for my remarks. This leads me to think that they had been in league formulating Lt. Col. Hudson’s (U.S. Army) options. So I can’t file my report with the Sheriff’s Deputy Macintosh as he would be a witness against me and most certainly hostile to my case.

What is truly amazing is that their two brains even working in concert can’t see the irrationality of their equating what I said to an adult whom threatened my son to a commissioned Officer in the United States Army wantonly and consciously threatening a helpless child.

As you can see, this chain of events has left my son in a position that he cannot go to school for fear of one Lt. Col. Hudson (U.S. Army). As it stands, we are going to bring my son’s lessons home so he won’t fall behind in his studies.

I would hope the CCISD school board would remove this abusive individual from campus and
I would expect the U.S. Army to take the necessary steps to relieve Lt. Col. Hudson’s (U.S. Army) from having command over children. The Army should decide if his conduct meets their standards as outlined in Articles 133 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

133: Conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman is an offense subject to court martial defined in the punitive code of the United States Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

The elements are as follows:

“That the accused did or omitted to do certain acts; and
That, in the circumstances, these acts or omissions constituted conduct unbecoming an officer and gentleman.[1]
Here “gentleman” is understood to include commissioned officers, cadets, and midshipmen, and Officer Candidates, of both sexes. A gentleman is understood to have a duty to avoid dishonest acts, displays of indecency, lawlessness, dealing unfairly, in decorum, injustice, or acts of cruelty.”

Sicko Slug

Of all the people on earth to open their pie hole about Health no one lacks credibility more than Michael Moore. I am sure there are plenty of things wrong with the way health care is provided in the U.S.. The #1 thing is we have too much of it. A very small percent of the medical care provided in the U.S. is for Trauma and Infectious Disease. most of the money spent is for maladies that could have been avoided by proper diet, sleep, exercise and safer life style. If you watch any TV you’ see ads for drugs to address every conceivable malady. The irony here is if you where out exercising instead of watching TV you wouldn’t need any of those drugs. Man! talk about targeted marketing! If you sign up for the Michael Moore Diet and Fitness Regimen, you can rest assured that you will need plenty of health care. but you will need very little if you will take matters into your own hands. So firstly, ask yourself if you are doing your part:

  • Do you walk “fast” for 40 – 50 minutes per day?
  • Do you regularly do resistance and stretching exercise?
  • Do you consume sufficient lean protein?
  • Do you enjoy daily servings of healthy fruits and vegetables?
  • Do you eat plenty of olive oil?
  • Do you drink enough water?
  • Do you get 7 to 8 hours of good sleep each night?
  • Do you take lots of Vitamin C, Omega 3 oils, and other vitamins
  • Then ask yourself if you are working to destroy your own health:

  • Do you abuse your body with cookies, donuts, chips, cake, and ice cream?
  • Do you drink soda?
  • Do you smoke, drink booze, or take drugs?
  • Are your food choices loaded with hydrogenated oil and trans-fats?
  • Are fast foods, fried foods, or prepared foods part of your regular menu?
  • Do you eat high-glycemic foods like rice and potatoes, or white flour products like bagels and white bread?
  • Do you have unsafe sex?
  • If you are doing the things that are bad for you and at the same time not doing the things that are good for you, you will end up looking a lot like this:sicko slug Micheal Moore

    George Bush It’s a Love Hate Thing

    Sure, if you are a conservative like me( I consider G Gordon Liddy, Ted Nugent and Pat Buchanan to be moderates), GW is wearing thin. I concur with his stance on terror and tax relief. I’m afraid it is all academic now. Once he gives our country away to illegal aliens that will make all the sacrifices of every solder since the American revolution all for naught. But you do have to give ol’ George some credit. Anyone that can draw the ire of Jimmy Carter must be a saint. Think about it, Carter is a guy that thinks Castro and Chavez are great and benign leaders. He thinks his fellow Nobel prize winner Arafat was a noble peace maker. Carter is just a communist idiot like Michael Moore. Carter said on 05-19-07 that the Bush administration was the worst in history. Worse in what way I ask. I guess it is all relative. From Carter’s perspective, he is right. Carter hates low taxes, low unemployment, low interest rates, low inflation, high personal prosperity, high home-ownership and the DOW above 13000.

    Bush has done a much better job at the war on terror, too. He has disrupted terrorists world wide and put them on the run. He has liberated Afghanistan from the Taliban. Women are no longer beaten and beheaded for showing an inch of skin on their wrist. He liberated 25 million Iraqis from Sadam Hussein, a Stalinist dictator who murdered untold tens of thousands of his countrymen . He did all that in 4 years and only had 3500+ KIAs. Shoot, from where I see it, that is remarkable. Let us compare that with the battle for Iwo Jima. Iwo only lasted about 1 month and we lost 6,821 souls. So the next time you hear some Commie bastard talking about casualties, remind them of Iwo. Here is the actual breakdown for that month.

    Un-SAT Educrat

    I heard a report the other day slamming the new S.A.T. One educator from a primarily black college was especially concerned because the new test was heavily weighted toward writing. He said it wasn’t fair to the poor folk; his theory being that economically challenged people perform poorly because they are poor. To this I say, “poppycock!” I believe that idea is putting the cart before the horse. In reality, the fact of the matter is people are poor because they perform poorly.

    The SAT, ACT, and other tests are by nature designed to separate the wheat from the chaff. This is a good thing. It’s a waste of time and money to send a moron to college. You can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear. There are a multitude of undeniable truths in life ” one of them happens to be that there are dumb folk and there are smart folk. The only thing subjective about this truism is who’s what. The answer is relative to where you fall in the bell curve.

    To illustrate how silly it is to ignore the importance of these scores, let’s imagine how ridiculous it would be to attempt to train a low-scorer to be a heart surgeon or to hire a high scorer as a tollbooth attendant or a Wal-Mart greeter. (No offense, Grandpa.)

    You have to keep a few things in mind as you listen to the Educrats. They need enrollment in order to justify their position. Indeed, they have their position because their institution has enrollment. I’d bet ya, if universities had to refund all fees and tuition to the student if they washed out, they would be more selective with whom they admitted in the first place. But alas, the university doesn’t care just as long as admissions are high. And don’t get me started talking about how they whore out their academic integrity in their omnipresent quest to field that moneymaking ball team.

    Liberalism: “The Anti-Logic”

    Have you ever wanted to know what a liberal was thinking? Here’s a trick: just think of a well thought out, righteous decision and then reverse it. On every issue, you can imagine liberals are just wrong. It is analogous to trying to put out a fire with gasoline. Here are a few examples:

    Liberals believe that killing the unborn fetus for convenience is a brilliant idea, but cringe at the thought of executing an axe murderer with innocent victims under his belt.

    When a school district performs poorly concerning drop out rate and standardized test scores, liberals think spending more money is the answer. But in every case throughout the nation, the more money spent per pupil, the lower the test results. (i.e. Salt Lake City v Washington DC) Liberals refuse to accept the fact that the ability to educate a child and said child’s academic performance level depends solely on intelligence and home environment ” not money.

    If the murder rate goes up, their solution is to stop law-abiding citizens from exercising their right to keep and bear arms. However, studies show that the crime rate is highest in every locale that has instituted gun bans and everywhere citizens are allowed to carry concealed weapons crime rates take a nosedive.

    If someone is with out a job, the Liberal answer is to give that lazy S.O.B. free money. Where do they get the money to dole out? You guessed it, from the industrious, hardworking American that works for a living; thusly punishing the producer and rewarding the slacker.

    If by chance a group of terrorist crashes planes in to several buildings killing thousands, a liberal will say that they are gallant freedom fighters and the people in the buildings deserved to die anyway (enter Bill Maher and Ward Churchill)

    We may never be able to understand what causes this illogical thought process that the liberals possess or what it was in their childhood that caused them to be liberal. But hopefully, if we can understand the disease, then we can start working on a cure.
