"For infantrymen, walking is a special curse and a source of pride. Civil War infantry bore the brunt of combat and joked about having never seen a dead cavalryman. But more than anything else, they walked long miles, often on blazingly hot days while clothed in woolen uniforms. In 1862 Stonewall Jackson led his men up and down the Shenandoah Valley fast enough to earn the moniker ‘foot cavalry’.

In this regard, little has ever changed. Bill Mauldin’s World War II cartoon GIs, Willie and Joe, fantasized about dry socks or the occasional ride in a vehicle. Walking, often under bone crushing burdens of packs, weapons, and sometimes a wounded comrade, has always been an exhausting, necessary aspect of infantry life.”

Gen. (Ret) Stanley McChrystal, from his memoir My Share of The Task

They blinded the guy who designed and built it so he’d never be able to build another one. It is the oldest working astronomical clock in the world.

slide-to-the-right:

Syndicated columnist and radio talk show host Dennis Prager dissects the propaganda and lays out the truth, in a nutshell, about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that has its roots in nothing more than anti-Semitism.

Anyone who fails to admit this key fact can just keep on dreaming; particularly the Americans holding “pro Palestinian demonstrations” in vairous cities across the nation, including my own Chicago. These people are clueless about a conflict that has nothing to do with them, and fail to understand what is at stake. I would love to see the typical Western liberal spend a day in Israel among the other families being endlessly massacred for no good reason aside from rabid anti-Semitism and see if they left (if they even survived; I’m doubting it) still claiming to be for “Palestine.”

The bottom line is this: If you claim to be for “equality of all people” and hold a “sensitivity and great respect” for all races and ethnicities (as many on the Left do) there is absolutely NO reason for you to be “pro Palestinian.” Period.
