Hamp's III Flag+

"No one else could engage the machinegun that trapped Shriver's men -- it was up to Mad Dog. Skittish Yards looked to Shriver and his half-grin restored a sense of confidence. Then they were on their feet, charging -- Shriver was his old self, running to the sound of guns, a True Believer Yard on either side, all of them dashing through the flying bullets, into the treeline, into the very guts of Mad Dog's great nemesis, COSVN. And Mad Dog Shriver was never seen again."

Hampton Author Files Suit To Stop Revision Of Controversial History Textbook

"Information about African American soldiers deserves to be in there," she said in an interview Thursday after filing the suit. "To eliminate the passage totally was wrong. To not consult an African American scholar and form a committee to revise the passage was wrong."

University Of Virginia Eliminates All Speech Codes

"This week, the University of Virginia (UVa) confirmed that it had eliminated the last of its policies that unconstitutionally restricted the free speech of students and faculty members. While more than two-thirds of the nation's colleges maintain policies that clearly and substantially restrict freedom of speech, UVa is now a proud exception, having fully reformed four speech codes. UVa has now earned a coveted "green light" rating from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE)."
Most encouraging.

Tea Parties: What More Do You Want?

"I will do anything to make my country safe. Sometimes I get nervous, but that is rare.
In 20 years I've never been injured."

"It occurs to me that there is a prevalent assumption that the Tea Party Movement is a precarious force, as if it were subject to running out of steam at any moment. The thought is that the reforms that need to be made must be made in a hurry, before there is no longer a will to continue.

I wrote a post a while back called “I Have But One Life” I think, the gist of it was that I had dedicated my life to this pursuit, not to holding signs and attending rallies, but to rolling up my sleeves and staying involved until there is a recognition of Constitutional limitation of government and that the words in the document mean something. I am certainly not alone."

Aki Ra Cambodian Landmine Expert

"Aki Ra is one of the most amazing individuals I’ve ever seen. He’s so incredible that he has been proclaimed a Badass by one website. Why is Aki Ra so amazing you ask? Because he has personally cleared over 50,000 landmines out of Cambodia minefields. 50,000 Landmines! He has done this with the most basic of tools and without the protective gear that is so commonly worn by EOD experts who deal with bombs and mines. Aki Ra has put his life in jeopardy 50,000 times for a cause he believes in and to help make Cambodia a safer place." Two short videos.

Colorado Governor: Hickenlooper (D), Tancredo (ACP) Take It To The Finish

"The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state shows Hickenlooper with a 47% to 42% lead over Tancredo, a former GOP congressman now running as the candidate of the American Constitution Party. Maes trails with five percent (5%) support. Six percent (6%) like some other candidate in the race, and one percent (1%) is undecided."
If ding-dong Maes would drop out Tancredo would win easily I believe, but he still has a chance.
