It appears Matt, a/k/a The Drunken samurai, master of the Peace Through Strength blog has been hijacked by some loser named Hailey Sanchez.
While baking in the hot sun yesterday at Citizens Bank Park, watching a rare occasion - the Phillies winning - my friends and I debated the validity of the World Cup and why no one in the US pays much attention to it.
Allow me to introduce to you Cpl David Toms, USMC. Cpl Toms recently received a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for his actions in stopping a wanted terrorist from entering the country while on Entry Control Point Operations. For the purposes of security, I cannot post the date or port.

The recently passed Florida law that essentially bans state academic travel to Cuba promised to escalate into a constitutional battle when Gov. Jeb Bush signed it into law last month.
The American Civil Liberties Union, representing several professors from state universities, filed a lawsuit against Florida officials in federal court, claiming the travel ban is unconstitutional. The group also demands a temporary injunction to prevent the law from taking effect while the case is in court.
''This act is terribly misdirected,'' Randall Marshall, legal director of the ACLU of Florida, said of the new law. "This is unconstitutional, and we hope to have this law struck down very shortly.''
Tell me Mr. Marshall where it says in the constitution that taxpayer money must be used to support travel? Anywhere in the world? I'll await your reply but I doubt I'll get one.
The new law prohibits spending state money on any aspect of organizing a trip to any of the five nations on the U.S. State Department's list of state sponsors of terrorism: Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
Other plaintiffs named in the suit include the faculty senate of FIU; Jose Alvarez, professor emeritus at the University of Florida; Carmen Diana Deere, director and professor at the University of Florida's Center for Latin American Studies; Houman Sadri, associate professor at the University of Central Florida; and Noel Smith, curator of Latin American and Caribbean Art at the University of South Florida.
The academics worry that the travel ban will discourage top students who have an interest in studying Cuba or other countries on the list from remaining at Florida schools.
So much for the lefties much-anticipated "FitzMas!"
As many people know, Joe Vento, owner of Geno's Steaks in South Philly, recently put up a sign on his window urging his customers to speak English when ordering. A firestorm of leftist protests has since cropped up, but here's some of the most brain-dead reasons why, courtesy of that whiny purveyor of all things "progressive," YPP:
Big HT to Bob G for this one:
Am I the only one sick and tired of all this "666" bulls**t?? How many people do you think died today because of some satanic intervention?? And how about these pregnant soccer moms trying to keep their legs closed for an extra 24 hours? Live with it!
From This Week's PARADE Magazine! I have no opinion about it, just thought it would be a great read!

Katie Couric, apparently still buzzed from her 3-hour "Katie=Sainthood" Today show fest, had this to say:
Note: When our military gets its wrong, we own up to it and deal with it!
Joe Vento is the owner of the ONLY decent steak shop in South Philly (See the Barbaro post). Joe also supports the widow of slain PPD officer Daniel Faulkner in her efforts to finally fry Mumia Abu Jamal!
Ok,..this post is, according to blogger.com, my 666th. That said, time to say some s**t that I would normally avoid out of good taste:
Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Somali refugee, Dutch legislator, and outspoken critic of Islamofascists, made a pointed comment in today's Inkwaster that pretty much sums up the situation in all of continental Europe today:
