“Nothing Replaces a Daddy” – Lt. Col. Oliver North

By Lt. Colonel Oliver North, USMC

The following story is an excerpt from Lt. Col. Oliver North's new release,
American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam.

"The explosion of a carefully planted IED mangled Sgt Edwards below his body armor. The first person to him was U.S. Navy medical Corpsman Christopher Anderson. The man they called "Doc" Anderson immediately applied tourniquets to Edwards' shattered limbs and started an IV to ward off shock.

As they raced for the LZZ to meet an inbound casualty-evacuation helicopter, Edwards looked up at the man who was checking his pulse and said, 'take care of my babies, Doc.'

Anderson shouted back, 'You're going to take care of your babies. You're going to be OK!'

Marine Sgt Gregory Edwards was on his third deployment to Iraq when new wounds sent him back to Walter Reed. In 2003 he had been part of the initial assault on Baghdad and saw the statue of Saddam Hussein toppled. He'd been wounded on his second deployment and spent time recovering at Bethesda and Walter Reed. When 1st Bn, 6th Marines, was slated for a third deployment, he insisted on going along.

This time, however Gregory Edwards' road to recovery would never end. Though the doctors operated on him more than thirty times, they couldn't save his shattered legs. When all the surgery was done, he had one stump above the knee, a stump below the other knee, and only one functioning hand.

'I lost my legs for the people of Iraq, so their children will be able to run around, just like mine. If time was turned back, I'd do it all over again," said Sgt Edwards, father of two."

This excerpt, taken from American Heroes, is dedicated to the hundreds of thousands of fathers who are standing on the front lines of war while their families anxiously await their return home.

"These 'heroes on the home front' are essential for the strength of our military as a whole and for the defense of this nation," said Lt. Col. North.

To celebrate Father's Day and honor the tremendous sacrifice made by so many fathers since the beginning of the war on terror, Lt. Col. North has made signed copies of his book available on his website,, throughout the month of June.

With more than 350 full-color images and exclusive access to even more stories from inside the trenches online, American Heroes presents a no-holds-barred, up-close look at this generation's citizen soldiers who have chosen the path of the patriot to go into harm's way.

Conservatism vs Liberalism is a distraction

Today's thoughts:

The more I read online the more I pray, I understand that despite what we may believe the issues we're experiencing in this nation are really not between Left and Right political parties so much as is between Darkness and Light. (I am conservative and wold not doom my liberal leaning-Obama loving 5 year nephew to eternal socialist hell--or anyone else for that matter).

I've been thinking of a way to introduce liberals to the true conservatives to help dispel the stereotypes.(funny how they stereotype "us" as so different from "them" where "us" are stuffy white men and "them" are fun enlightened and ethnically diverse....said the african-american conservative woman to the presumably caucasian liberal empathizer)

God is showing me a different perspective on these issues as being between he calls
----usury and unjust gain vs justly governing national affairs---

From the federal banks to the federal welfare recipients we all need to repent and judge not, capitalism in the hands of the greedy businesses included will not stand in this day.

No matter the effects...the cause rests solely upon the Christians charged with being salt and light to preserve God's will and scatter darkness from this earth.

Fear not, Believe only--

A Very Important Lesson for Creative Conservatives

Today I am so happy that I have my own little space in the blogosphere! I never thought I would say that but lately my online activity has been buzzing and frankly noisey! I am slowly getting into twitter ...slowly... and noticed a tweet about the negative effects of rehashing bad news, events, experiences, etc.

The tweet suggested that we resist the temptation to spend large amounts of time talking about negative things that happen to us, even to our closest friends, because typically the retelling is more like re-living, and really, who needs that?

You know how you feel when you find out that someone in your office has assigned you to do yet another task, or, while you were busy with one project, they come along, take credit or change another of your projects? Here is my remedy:

I heard a sermon recently (the tweet reminded me of all of this, and this is my point) that encouraged me to refrain from competitiveness and to choose creativity instead. The sermon suggested that when we are competitive in our work and business, for example, we spend too much energy focusing on what the "competition" is doing, rather than realizing there is enough room for all the creativity God placed in each of us.

think about it, and run your own race and you will win!

CPAC, CFR and, The Constitution

h/t The Ideations of a Jayhawker

"We want every American to be the best he or she chooses to be.

We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. [Applause]

We believe that the preamble to the Constitution contains an inarguable truth that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life. [Applause] Liberty, Freedom. [Applause] And the pursuit of happiness. [Applause]

Those of you watching at home may wonder why this is being applauded. We conservatives think all three are under assault. [Applause] Thank you. Thank you." ~Rush Limbaugh

A great speech overall, but I have a few issues with it, and with the speaker.

First of all, you will notice in the second paragraph that he mentions the "inarguable truth" in the preamble to the U.S. Constitution that we are endowed by our creator with the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Before I continue, let me mention that he was awarded the "Defender of the Constitution" award.

The preamble to the Constitution, you know, the "We the People" document, doesn't say anything about life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness; that's a quote from the Declaration of Independence.

"Ooh, Soory!" ~Alex Trebek

From "Go Sarah" Blog


to say one word against Christians. That's just racist. And it's shows one is Christ-phobic. Is that stupid of me to say??
Because Christians are so many diverse races??
And because it's propaganda to apply the word "phobic" to one's dissenting detractors??

I'd agree.

Equally, Islam is full of different races. To say that anyone who critiques them is "Islam-phobic" is as ridiculous as calling that person "racist".

When will people stop to think with objectivity?

Instead of being so full of hatred for white Christians that they bounce to the degree of defending a misogynist, racist, genocidal belief system of Islam that hates women (enslaves and murders them) and seeks the genocide murder all Jews, atheists, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, basically everyone.

You folks who hate white Christians - you're overcompensating.

Detach from your blind hate of the Christian religion and white Christians -- and stop being so reactionary.

See Islam for what it is - you'll be able to once you stop hating white Christians so very much that you're too emotional to be objective and to see all the evil and danger of the Islamic demand for global domination, etc.
