Look At This Face, Obama

The more I think about Dear Leader’s resolute determination to lose the Long War, the more I think of this face.

11241_101812579844734_100000479783150_47534_7188164_n

This Marine’s gaze is set forward, his eyes focused on his goal. He knows his mission. He knows not only what is expected of him, but what others expect from him. He has made the commitment to do his duty. He has already sacrificed, he’s away from his family, in a foreign land, freezing at night, sweltering during the day. He faces uncertainty every time he steps outside the wire while his family waits at home, apprehensively waiting for his safe return. And he is prepared to sacrifice even more to win this war.

Look at this face, Obama. He needs to know that his sacrifices, his efforts are not in vain. He needs to know that the person who claims to lead him is prepared to do his part.

Look at this face, Obama. Look into his eyes. He knows the gravity of the situation, he knows the mettle of his enemy, and he’s prepared.

Are you, Obama? He needs to know.

And so do our enemies.

    Crunchie, I went in and added a couple of commas here & there in an attempt to better clarify what you were saying.

    Lemme know if you’d prefer I change it back. (They’re towards the end.)

    A Lance Corporal… the very backbone of the Marine Corps. I wouldn’t worry too much about that Marine, Crunchie. He’s among some of the finest people in the world. They’ll take care of each other.

    the dear leader looks at that Marine’s face with contempt. In his world (Obama), the morre Marines that die on foreign soil, the more elderly who die from denied medical care and the more American fortune given away in the name of global warming, the more POWER the national socialists steal from the soul of our great country. These cowards and traitors have no shame and no belief in the goodness of the United States of America. The showdown is coming. I pray that I will do my part when the time comes and make my father (SGM, USARMY, DECEASED) Proud.

    Obama and his cronies are doing their best to lose the war to their ideological brethren in the Middle East, but not before they kill off as many of our troops as possible. Fuck Ear Leader. That son of a bitch does not even hide it any more that he is playing for the other team.

    I hear ya Mudshark.

    The only thing I could add to the would be my fervent hope that the level of insanity the O’bots have provoked don’t enrage us beyond the point of knowing when to stop.
    The Rage begot by all the unforgivable transgressions against all that we hold critical and dear will be a tough batch of emotions to suppress. and not all of us are trained for that, or even inclined to consider forgiveness.

    Pat Cadell, the demoncrat strategist and Carter holdover was on Beck last night. He looked into the camera and addressed the “law makers”with this very profound statement…..

    “THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE COMING, AND THEY’RE COMING FOR YOU”.

    The writing is on the wall.
    CHEAP, I think we are well beyond considering forgiveness. No blindfolds, no last cigarettes. When we see a cockroach do we show mercy? The same restraint shall be exercised with reid, pelousy, and all their vermin accomplices.

    Wanna know why clergy become chaplains in the military?

    Look at the picture again and ask this: Do they deserve the best pastoral care and support our country can muster or should they get the leftovers?

    Someone once asked me when I will get a “real ministry.” Loving, supporting, and sharing life with these heroes is as real as it gets.

    And there is nothing more honorable or humbling than to be their chaplain.

    The priest from the church I occasionally attend recently joined up. He wanted to, for a while, just waited until his daughters got a little older. Which is really cool, because I don’t think there are too many Russian Orthodox Chaplains out there.

    That picture reminds of what was said about the British army in WW1: That they were lions led by jackasses. Fast-forward over 90 years, and we still have young lions like this Marine, only this time the jackasses are not his generals, as they were in the mud and trenches of Flanders, but his civilian chain of command, starting at the top. Obama and his buddies may hold this Marine and others like him contempt, but the whole lot of them isn’t 1/10th the man the Marine is, and, deep down, they know it.

    Cheapshot, #6, I’m long past forgiveness. a GOOD POINT… I view these people more and more as little but opportunistic thieves, this time the booty your soul, your motivation , your God, your country, and your beliefs. They want all of you. I suspect they will get none of us…they won’t me. Forgiveness? Not a chance, I feel little but contempt, disgust and hatred towards these creatures. I want them gone or permanently gone. I don’t care which. I seek preparedness for both scenarios.

    And few need a shepherd more than a warrior in harm’s way, so your services are greatly appreciated.

    Speaking of chaplains, I noticed, by looking at your nick, that you appear to be out of uniform. I have taken the liberty of fixing it for you so that, henceforth, whenever you post, you will be known as the Imperial Chaplain.

    Pat had a “come to Jesus” moment just before the 2008 election when they played Obama’s “bankrupt the coal companies” clip and he was flabbergasted.

    There are enough of us who, while showing some gray, are sufficiently staunch in our support for the war against pislam and any other pirates, terrorists, or other tyrants who would threaten our nation, that we and the greatest of the present generations, like the lc in the pic, can hold out as long as we have to. I truly believe and pray that help is on the way in the coming election cycles, though we have much idiocy to fight at home, while others fight evil abroad. We hope this ain’t Blackhawk Down, Bastogne (though I’d love the chance to tell our own gummint and the pislamists, “Nuts”, or the Phillipines, but even if there is grave hardship and seemingly no hope, we will stand up for our nation and our troops. May God guard, and guide us!

    Mr Cadell has shown remarkable candor in all the of his appearances of late that I have seen… for a former demonrat spokesperson.

    He doesn’t suspect even half of the coming retribution.

    Who he is is irrelevant, but as Mrs. M accurately pointed out, yes it is Crumb. But that’s not the point, this wasn’t about Crumb. In this photo, to me anyway, he represents all of our warriors; Marines, soldiers, sailors, airmen, or Coast Guardsmen.

    That is a sentiment I’ve heard repeatedly Father, and it was always humbling to me the level of pastoral care that was given to us grunts. I’m sure that the soldiers in your flock are very well ministered. Thank you Father for your selfless service to them.

    Indeed Mike, indeed.

    I wouldn’t worry too much about that Marine, Crunchie. He’s among some of the finest people in the world. They’ll take care of each other.

    Not worried about him Mike, you know that. Come what may, he did his duty. And I know the Marines he’s serving with, and a finer bunch I’ve rarely met. It’s the cause I’m worried about. I worry that what he’s doing will be for nothing. And what makes me even more furious is it doesn’t have to be.

    There’s an old saying; “It’s better to die for something than to live for nothing.” Too many men have already paid the price, and when they did it WAS for something. The thought that all of their sacrifices will be rendered mute is…words escape me.

    They did their job, they won the battles. Like your generation Mike, it may turn out to be only the warriors themselves who will see the true glory they have earned, the victory they won. We, their brothers, will remember, and we will know. The pages of our history that they have written can not be undone. But the cause that they fought for, the victory they gave our nation, can be thrown away. That was done once. It pains me that it’s happening again.

    I’m even more concerned now. A friend of mine is in Iraq right now (Basra), and another is gearing up to go there next month. Add to that, there are a couple of people in my unit that are going to Afghanistan, I may be going to Iraq (or I hope that if I do get called up, it’s Iraq), and the Syriac Seabee (my friend Harvey) is leaving for Afghanistan in February. Those guys are going to need all the prayers that they can get, thanks to this numbnuts that is supposedly our leader. Well, they would need them anyway, but even more now.

    Glad to see someone picked up on this–it’s a good story. Semper Fi, Mr. Gant! BTW, the other incident Mr. Gant, the Lucky Dog vendor, observed was unfortunately a fairly common occurrence during the Bayou Classic weekend. If you’re planning a visit to NOLA, it’s strongly recommended that you avoid the time frame around that weekend, when NOLA looks even more like Mogadishu on the Mississippi than usual. Many businesses have learned the “business” they get for Bayou Classic isn’t worth having, so they just take a holiday vacation anyway.

    So he will bow to the Muslim Saudi King but not the Norwegian King. After all, he’s already dissed the British Queen, and the uncrowned heads of France, Germany and Russia. Big deal about the Norwegians. :em41:

    History of Saint Maurice

    Saint Maurice was Primicerius of the Theban Legion. In 287 AD it marched in service of the Roman Empire fighting against the revolt in the Berguadae Gauls. His men were composed entirely of Christians recruited from upper Egypt, near the Valley of the Kings. The Legion marched to the Mediterranean Sea, was transported across, and traveled across Italy to an area in Switzerland. Serving under Augustus Maximian Hercules, Maurice was ordered to have his legionnaires offer pagan sacrifices before battle near the Rhone at Martigny. The Theban Legion refused to participate, and also refused to kill innocent civilians in the conduct of their duty, and withdrew to the town of Agaunum. Enraged, Maximian ordered every tenth man killed, yet they still refused. A second time the General ordered Maurice’s men to participate and again they refused. Maurice declared his earnest desire to obey every order lawful in the eyes of God. “We have seen our comrades killed,” came the reply. “Rather than sorrow, we rejoice at the honor done to them.” At this Maximian ordered the butchery of the Thebans and the martyrdom of Saint Maurice. September 22 is the traditional feast day.
