Ya, its Monday. I know you had a hard time getting out of bed and you really don’t want to go to work. Stop the freaking blood clot crying and get yourself together man. No one at work wants to hear your whining. Its Monday, ya I know the weekend was 5 days too short but that’s just our inner self being lazy.

Throughout my short career in the Marines you look back and find yourself in some unique situations (to say the least). After remembering those events I came up with the below phrases that I have seen that start with “ You might be a Marine if”
Its going to get busy -We will succeed. We will win our nations battles. That’s why they call us Marines.
Do we have issues within the US? Yes. Could they get worse, hell yes. With all of the unrest that is currently transcribing within the world especially the Middle East we need to pay attention and continue the offensive but we aren’t to the degree we need to be at.
Ft Hood 5 Nov 2009 SSgt Zeigler was shot 4 times. He was sent home early from Iraq to conduct processing to become an officer when he was hit. Now Extreme Makeover changes his life and helps him heal in more ways than one. Below is a few minute clip from the show. See the entire show here.

Four Americans Killed on Yacht Hijacked by Somali Pirates
This is why we tell you not to go to these locations. You are not invisible and these people sit up late at night thinking of ways to kill you. Life is general and especially yours, means nothing to them. I was hoping for a safe recovery of these Americans and hoped they would be rescued but as I said you are in big trouble traveling to these locations and this includes Mexico.

Not a good idea
Dear bad guys-
If you can’t read and none of your erratic leaders told you the nobrainer, America does not make deals with terrorists. Dropping a few scum bag pirates with head shots from a sea moving deck while you detain fellow Americans doesn’t constitute “making a deal” because there is no deal. Its call you get dead and you won’t even hear the gun shot.
When anyone that does a job or career that is a public service to this country being military or police officer, fireman etc and they gamble the idea that they may not come home from their days work, those are the ones America needs to remember and appreciate.
