Forces in place for Operation "SC"

Santa 

All forces are in place and have commenced patrols for Operation “SC” to begin. A small interaction of bad guys was distinguished recently but that’s why we have these forces abroad to take care of the light work before the raider fly.  

In this rare photo we can see SC & Mrs “C” moving into a prepositioned strike force position “unknown” but suitable for conducting the annual gift distribution.

 All is quiet on the home front thanks to our warriors keeping the wolf at bay. SC’s flight plan has been cleared. Semper Fi & Merry Christmas to all………

Coalition Forces positioned for Santa.........

We have currently two infantry squads that have been inserted into the well known areas of movement of Santa and his leading reindeer. They have multiple heads up display surface to air man packs to thrawrt any attempts at hostile terrorists taking a pop shot at him during his approaching flight plan.

A section of F-18s are on strip alert and will be in the air 24 hrs ahead of St Nick to provide aerial recon and early detection. Three Ospreys were contracted this year to augment Santa’s payload of gifts this year and a Navy battle group is positioned diligently in the Atlantic for anything that may arise.

Several elfs have been spotted running around with cigars so be on the lookout…..they can’t be trusted.

More to follow………

Enough of Radical Islam

Enough with the pseudonyms. Western civilization isn't at war with terrorism
any more than it is at war with grenades. Western civilization is at war
with militant Islam, which dominates Muslim communities all over the world.
Militant Islam isn't a tiny minority of otherwise goodhearted Muslims. It's
a dominant strain of evil that runs rampant in a population of well over 1
billion.

Winning.........

IP

Cricket……things sure seem quit in Iraq. At least in the news you don’t hear anything about what is happening. After talking to a few buds over there my old stomping grounds……well are stomping, they are peaceful. Matter of fact several Coalition forces have actually pulled out of most of the cities in Iraq. 

Pssssss we have won……………

I am in total agreement with this guy.

Urine Test -- This guy has a point!  This was written by a construction worker in Fort McMurray .  Read on . . .
>
I work, they pay me.  I pay my taxes, and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.  In order to earn that pay check, I work on a rig site for a Fort McMurray construction project.  At any time I am required to pass a random urine test, with which I have no problem.  HOWEVER, what I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test.  Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them?    Understand - I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do on the other hand have a problem with helping someone sit on their ass, drink beer and smoke dope.  Could you imagine how much money this country would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?
