U.N. Reveals 20 Rockets Were Secretly Stored in One of Its Gaza Schools
Jul. 17, 2014 1:40pm Sharona Schwartz
Big surprise. The Hamas terrorists are hiding weapons in schools. That's not exactly new as they've been doing it for decades. What's new is that somehow reporters are acting like they never suspected that before.
It happens all the time. Hamas gets away with it because they have support in the local population. People apparently love Hamas more than they do their own children.
We won't have peace in the Middle East until the people demand it. The terrorists stored mortar rounds and ammo in a local school when we were in Iraq until the school superintendent angrily told us they were there. I'm not sure if he was pissed there were weapons in a school or that they just hadn't asked his permission first. Either way, the bad guys will keep getting away with these war crimes until the people get fed up and make them stop.
Yes, by definition putting kids in harms way by storing weapons in schools and mosques IS a war crime. Say what you want about the Israelis, they aren't intentionally targeting civilians. They are using precision weapons to try to hit rocket launchers without hitting people.
Civilians are ALL that Hamas is targeting. They aren't even TRYING to hit anything else. They are lobbing essentially unaimed rockets into densely packed cities hoping to kill a civilian.
Politically you can debate who "belongs" there and who has a "right" to the land, etc. What you can't really debate here is the moral equivalency of the actions by either side. Actions are what matter.
A moral victory cannot be had by immoral means. It's frankly racist to not hold both sides to the same humane standards. If you fail to condemn the Palestinians for actions the Israelis can't get away with then you're saying they're not as HUMAN as the Israelis are.
Is that really the message we want to send? The Israelis are constantly called to account for their actions. The Palestinians need to be held responsible for the actions of Hamas. If you let a crime happen, you are complicit in that crime.
By the way, under the international laws of war it is perfectly legal to target a "structure" that is "engaged in military usage." That means the moment you store weapons in a school, church or house it ceases to be a civilian building. It is officially a "military target."
So, Israel is NOT committing a war crime if they blow up that school to get to those rockets. That's the law. It makes sense because the whole purpose of the law is to STOP PEOPLE FROM STORING WEAPONS IN SCHOOLS.

I’m a voracious reader. I even know what voracious means. And spell it!
I have been reading everything I can get my hands on since I can remember. I used to fight my grandfather for the newspaper at the age of 4. It wasn’t much of a “fight” per se. He had a good 200 lbs on me so I grabbed while he was at work.
He honestly never had a problem with it except that “the sections got all mixed up.” So, we compromised and I learned to fold the newspaper the way he liked it before he got home from the night shift at the Malt House. You would be surprised how unwieldy a full sized newspaper is when you’re 4.To this day I can fold a newspaper (or a map) like an origami ninja.
One of the side effects of reading so much is a huge vocabulary. I’m not bragging about it. To be honest it’s more often a curse than a blessing. Ironically it makes it harder to talk to people.
Have you ever had to use different words because you know the person you’re talking to doesn’t know the right one? It’s the literary equivalent of “rounding off” a number. It’s not only inaccurate. Sometimes it’s dangerous.
Take for example a generator mechanic in my platoon a few months ago who kept calling every fuel “gas.” Gasoline, Diesel, Propane… all “gas.” Bad idea. That’s how things get broken or go boom. Or both.
It took a surprisingly long time to break him of this habit considering his occupation. It’s happened before of course. A sergeant I had in Kuwait famously wrecked a John Deere with diesel in a gas tank. In his defense though, the guys at the fuel point really didn’t speak much English.
Even in English we often have trouble communicating with one another. Listen to a man and a woman talk. They can be talking about the same thing, but have no clue what the other is saying. They have different words for things.
Ask any woman what color “Chartreuse” is. Ask her the difference between the colors “Ivory” and “Eggshell.” What does “Lavender” smell like?
Guys, the answers here are
a) It’s a sort of yellowish green. Even the dictionary isn’t exactly sure. Its French. Nuff said.
b) They are both pretty much white. Eggshell is dirtier, less pure. It’s what brides wear when they aren’t virgins at their wedding. Dirty, dirty brides.
c) You can get a 5 paragraph description or a “Sorta like flowers and pine trees.” I’m gonna go with the latter.
I only know because I googled them. That’s why straight men have no control over the interior decorating. It’s like asking the test monkeys what trajectory to use to get to the moon. No clue. Press button. Get banana. Nod and smile. Get sex.
This is where I should add that my boss one time had his office painted a bright pink. Former Marine that he is, he couldn’t admit that it was pink. He insisted we call it “salmon.”
I’m a fisherman. I know salmon. That was pink, sir.
Men, we’re not entirely helpless mind you. Ask a man the difference between a .30 Short a .308 and a .30-30 and he’ll probably know. Unless they’re a real hardy woman the wife might get “pointy thing that you shoot.”
We have different words to use because we are raised differently and have different priorities. We even talk at different speeds. If you don’t believe me go to Louisiana in August.
It’s so hot and humid there, even the mosquitos walk. I’m serious. I have pictures somewhere.
The people are even more sluggish. I get it. It’s hot. Take it easy. BUT…
That is the SLOWEST “fast food” you’ll ever get. It took us 45 minutes to get a slice of pizza… already made… sitting in the warmer. All she had to do was put it on a paper plate.
Most of that was waiting for the server to finish her first sentence. “Hey…y’all…. What….would… you… like… to… eat…”
By this point, my buddies’ heads were exploding. Have you ever seen a New Yorker wait patiently for anything? Thankfully we had already turned in our weapons first.
When we did finally get to order the guys tried to make up for lost time by ordering super fast. They sounded like auctioneers… on crack. New Yorkers talk fast anyway. Starving and pissed off, even I had trouble following them.
The poor server just shut down for a moment. I think she blew a fuse. It’s like when you plug a 110 volt hair dryer into a 220 volt outlet. It tries REALLY hard to keep up until there’s a “pop” and smoke comes out.
Her compatriot waddled up and scolded us for being so impatient and rude. Scolded us in slow motion mind you. “Hold..your…horses…now…” Agonizing.
So, I’m gonna try not to dumb things down on here. I respect you all too much for that. I do simplify things but that’s more for brevity and concise communication.
Also, bear with me because I’ve been told I have a very “stream of thought” way of writing. It’s rambling and disjointed. It actually reads just like the voice(s) in my head sound.
Except for Juan. He usually talks in Spanish and I have to translate.

According to philosopher John Stuart Mill ("On Liberty") there are four key reasons no opinions should be banned. Maybe we CAN still learn a thing or two from those "old dead white guys."
1. The "Bad Idea" could be true. While we doubt it, there is a chance however remote that the minority opinion could end up being right.
2. Even if it is in error, the unpopular opinion could have important elements of truth in it to learn.
3. Facts which are true only become more solid the more “proven” they are. Where is the risk if you know something to indeed be true?
4. The rejection of a few unpopular ideas inevitably leads to further intolerance of curiosity and questioning of popular opinion. This only hurts the quest for truth in the long run, limiting our abilities to reason rationally and consider alternatives.
That is why any speech, even "hate speech" should be allowed.
(The only exception I can see would be inciting a riot or something similar, although at that point it goes beyond just an idea and is a call to action. At that point you could argue that it is itself an action then and not simply a concept any longer.)

I'd had variations on this discussion numerous times:
Hippie: “Hunting is inhumane! Killing deer is wrong!”
Me: Well wolves kill deer all the time. Until we killed them off. Now they mostly get hit by cars.
Hippie: “Well wolves are different! They EAT what they kill!”
Me: So do I. Venison is delicious.
Hippie: Well they don’t use GUNS to do it! Guns are cruel!”
Me: Really? So it’s not painful to be torn to shreds with claws and teeth and then devoured while still living? I would think that would be a lot more cruel than a simple gunshot that is fatal in moments.
Hippie: “You’re cheating by using a gun!”
Me: Alright, get me a pair of cool metal claws like Wolverine that pop out of my hands and then we’ll talk.”
Hippie: “That’s not funny!”
Me: Yes, yes it is. But seriously… Wolverine claws. We have the technology…”
Hippie: "Bambie Killer!"

There’s nothing wrong with khakis, a polo shirt and work boots. That’s “business wear” to me. I suspect that if I were ever elected to office I’d just keep wearing what I do to work now.
I’m not sure if there’s supposed to be a dress code for the Senate or anything. I don’t see why there should have to be. You’re there to represent the people, and they don’t ALL wear suits!
So, I’d keep my work boots and ditch the tie. Hey, if it’s good enough for dealing with the “common folk” now, why not then? They’re the ones that ELECT you, Mr. and Mrs. Senator. Besides, one Congresswoman wore pink tennis shoes to advocate for “women.” Others wore hoodies to advocate for “Trayvon Martin and black kids.” I’d wear work boots to advocate for those who work. Sounds fair to me.

I feel I need to address this "Hobby Lobby" case to clear the air a bit. I've heard far too much disinformation and outright lies masquerading as fact in the last
couple weeks. It is immoral and detrimental to us all for such falsehoods to continue.
The claim being made is that the Supreme Court has "Started a war on women by taking away their birth control!" That's a pretty big claim. Normally there's still a shred of truth in every big lie. Not so much here. It's pretty much a lie from beginning to end.
Let me explain.
Hobby Lobby offers 16 kinds of birth control to its employees. The Dept of Health and Human Services on its own decided that an arbitrary list of 20 birth control options needed to be covered by all employers. So, they waved their magic wand and POOF!
The problem is that it wasn't really LAW per se. The Affordable Care Act (ie "Obamacare") didn't really SAY that was the case. It was just a personal decision on the part of HHS bureaucrats.
The four plans that HHS added were "abortives", or drugs that "eliminate" fertilized eggs post-conception. By definition (and this was even in the US Gov't's own files) they were literally "abortion drugs." Anything that deals with AFTER the sperm and egg get busy fall in that category.
HHS said Hobby Lobby HAD to cover those abortive drugs or be fined hundreds of millions of dollars. Hobby Lobby claimed it was against their religion to support abortion and there were 16 forms of birth control they paid for that weren't abortion-causing.
HHS sued. Hobby Lobby won, citing a law signed by Bill Clinton, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. All it basically said was that the government should find the "least intrusive" way of helping the public while preserving freedom of religion.
The Supreme Court judges ruled 5-4 that the government was being too heavy handed and that 16 forms of birth control was good enough.
That's all that happened.
You'd have thought that all women were being raped and shackled barefoot in the basement to hear many of the pundits talk!
Let's be clear now. There is NO change in ANY woman buying whatever birth control she wants. No change at all.
There isn't even a change at Hobby Lobby. Basically NOTHING changed. Nada.
The only thing that happened was that the HHS had their hand slapped for being bullies and DEMANDING that Hobby Lobby PAY FOR abortion drugs.
That is the key. It's not about freedom or ACCESS to anything. It is about making SOMEONE ELSE PAY FOR IT. It's about being ENTITLED to what SOMEONE ELSE HAS.
That is what the supposedly "feminist" pundits are trying to push for. It's not about birth control. Not really. It's about getting everything they want, when they want it, at someone else's expense.
Income redistribution. Socialism, Communism, whatever sort of Statism you want to call it. The point is that the State (government) doesn't want anyone telling it what it CAN'T do.
That is where most Americans differ from the Progressives in this country. Our country was founded on the principle of "Negative Rights", which means things that can't be done TO you. You can't be thrown in jail for free speech, or because of your religion, or have your property taken away. "Negative Rights" are only "negative" if you look at them from the perspective of the government.
Progressives (or "Big Government" people) believe in "Positive Rights." Basically, they don't care about personal freedom as long as they GET STUFF. Free health care, food stamps, free college, free rent, etc. Those are "Positive Rights."
It's very simple. Decide what side you're on because hard times are coming. The country is splitting apart.
One side supports individual freedom and self reliance with very small, limited government.
The other side is willing to give up their personal rights in exchange for free stuff from the big government.
In the middle are the undecided and clueless who are going to be steamrolled along the way.
Make a choice.

One of the reasons I finally decided to start this blog was a quote during the Mississippi Republican Primary election. The incumbent's daughter, Kate Cochran went on a tirade against the "Tea
Party" candidate Chris McDaniels. On Facebook she ranted "...he (McDaniels) relies solely on Jesus, the Constitution and Common Sense!"
This honestly made me scratch my head. Why were those BAD things? Even leaving the religious debate out of it, a Senator is required to take an oath to the US Constitution. And when did Common Sense become a bad idea? (It's not all that common in any case.)
The implication seemed to be that anyone who supports any of the above should be somehow ASHAMED of who they are. That's ridiculous. Those things defined Chris McDaniels and MANY great Americans.
Gays aren't ashamed of who they are. It's "cool" to be "urban" and express your "culture." Why can't Conservatives and Patriots express themselves?
The other day a friend apologized in the middle of a debate for standing up for what be believes. In this case it wasn't just what he believed. It was the TRUTH.
The other party did not have her facts correct. Even if she had, there's no apologizing for your beliefs. You are entitled to them just as much as the next person.
You can be polite. You can be civil. Apologizing for who you are is another thing entirely.
I guess ethics aren't a strong point of the Cochran family anyway. Her father Thad "won" a squeaker of a campaign on the barest of margins. That is, if the courts don't take up the case of some serious voter discrepancies and criminal accusations of voter fraud.
Turns out it IS illegal to bribe voters and rig the election tallies.
He had to do SOMETHING. That upstart kid with his Jesus, his Constitution and his Common Sense was ahead in the polls and wouldn't quite after being outspent 6:1. Morality takes a back seat to pride these days.
I'm interested to see how this case goes. McDaniels is said to be filing a lawsuit with proof and witnesses to back it up.
Update: McDaniels Camp finds 8,300 voting irregularities
(Mind you they couldn't get to half the polling places and many election officials mysteriously disobeyed election rules and destroyed evidence or simply "didn't have the information" they were looking for. Could be more, but that's what they have been able to find so far. Cochran "won" by 7,667 votes.)

The whole premise of a "broken" system is flawed. You can’t really say our immigration system is “broke” if you don’t enforce the laws on the books. Why pass more laws that won’t be
That's like running a red light, getting in an accident and then blaming the traffic light for not working. You never gave it a chance. Then it's someone or something else's fault you got hurt?
It's not about race. It's not about politics. ALL immigrants should follow the same rules.
I’m all FOR immigration. LEGAL immigration. Go through Ellis Island like the people before you. There are two big issues being missed that have nothing to do with ethnicity or even economics.
The BIG reason we had Ellis Island and indeed any immigration procedure in the first place is not for ethnic or even economic reasons. It was for HEALTH reasons. Ellis Island was a quarantine area where you were given a physical and kept separate so as not to bring dangerous diseases into the country.
Tuberculosis for example is rampant in the refugee camps of kids swarming in from Central America. That’s because it’s rampant in their home countries. Unfortunately, by shipping those kids IMMEDIATELY across the United States and NOT quarantining them, we are spreading TB (and other fun diseases) across the country. There have already been a couple reported outbreaks that can be tracked directly back to those kids.
The second reason was it gave people a chance to meet up with their sponsors. Yes, you had to have a SPONSOR in America already before you came here. It could be family. It could be a friend. It could be an employer who hired you.
The idea is that SOMEONE was responsible for you. You did not get welfare. Someone had to sign to take custody of you and promise that they would feed, house and clothe you until you became a citizen. They made sure you got a job. You would not be allowed to be a “burden on the state.”
That's how the system was supposed to work anyway. We've made it easier to get in, although the paperwork is a lot longer. (Isn't it always?)
Unfortunately people just sneak in and avoid all the paperwork. if you want to hear some REAL "anti-illegal" tirades, just ask some LEGAL immigrants about the issue. They followed all the rules and are seriously offended by the criminals who sneak in the back door.
To make sure everyone goes through the system, we need to first secure the border. I’ve worked security in a combat zone. It’s ridiculously EASY to secure a border if you want to. This “it can’t be done” is a smoke screen. NOTHING can be done if you don’t WANT to.
They’re requesting $3.7 billion (probably more tan $4 billion by the time they vote on it) for “the border.” However, there’s no part of it earmarked for the actual border. Odd….
That’s bullshit. Give me HALF of that. The rest can go to setting up a nice refugee camp for all those kids with plenty of food and doctors until they can be checked out and given US citizen mentors.
(Interesting side note when I was in Quatemala they made us sign forms that said we would not kidnap Guatemalan kids because they were being abducted to sell for adoptions on the black market at a crazy rate. Now we’re to believe that parents are GIVING their kids up voluntarily to go thousands of miles UNESCORTED through the roughest parts of gang-controlled Mexico because they LOVE them?)
Anyway, the HALF that’s left over (about $2 billion) would be enough to build a wall the whole 3,000 miles with Mexico and prep it to be manned. There are already enough Border Control to man it if they were TOLD to (and not spread across the country on errands.) Or, just use the National Guard. They have everything they need. We KNOW how to do it. It’d be really cheap.
So, that’s my plan for immigration.
1) Secure the border.
2) Send everyone through Ellis Island and quarantine
3) Every immigrant must be sponsored by a US citizen
Seems pretty simple to me.
That's why it won't happen anytime soon.

It's taken me quite a while to figure that out. Maybe at some point I'll have a witty answer for you. Probably not.
Wherever I go outside of my home town, I seem to have acquired the nickname "Jimbo." It is much cooler than "James" but I admit it's puzzled me a bit. I get "Jimmy" or "J.R." or other variations. They're common nicknames.
"Jimbo" however always seemed to have more meaning to it. It was always people living in "the city" who used it. Often it morphed into "Jim Bob."
I wasn't offended by this odd bit of name changing. In fact, I knew a few "Jim Bobs" growing up. I just found it weird because that wasn't my name.
Eventually you figure out you're "that guy." You're known for something. Either you're the guy with all the tattoos or you're the girl who likes black guys.
I was the country boy living in the city with a pickup truck. Again, not a bad thing. In fact it was kind of fun.
Back home I'd always been the "smart kid" who read books. I fished, I hunted and I played football in the yard. However, it was never really "country" enough for some people.
When I moved to a city, it was the opposite. I found out that people were struck speechless if you told them your Dad owned a Tackle Shop. It was like Clark Kent suddenly blurting out "I'm from a Planet called Krypton. Maybe you've heard of it?" No clue how to react.
The guys driving Porsches to class would get mad because girls stopped to stare at my rusty old pick up truck. I was still too shy to get laid much, but it was a different experience from back home. After all, there were plenty of guys with sports cars but only one guy in a beat up Chevy!
I also found out that calling a place "the city" is a really fun way to start a fight with "city folk." You see they ALL think that THEIR particular neighborhood is "The City." Apparently "Bronx" and "Brooklyn" are not synonymous after all.
It was a lot like when I was living in England for a summer. Those who say only Americans are ignorant haven't really traveled much. Ignorance is global. I was "The American" or "That Yank." It was just a way to stereotype people.
Oddly enough, the landlord often grouped me with a French Canadian woman who lived next door. She wasn't too happy about also being called an "American." You would think if anything he'd have called her French by the accent, but either way there are few things more amusing that insulting drunk French-Canadians. They can become quite passionate.
I can only imagine what would have happened if they'd sent a Texan on that exchange program.
(On a side note, I've often wondered if Brits really call us "Yanks" because it's short for "Yankees" or they just want to use a word that means the same thing as 'Jerk.' Don't let them fool you. They're still a bit sore about that whole "Revolution" thing back in 1776.)
Anyway, my point is that you get perspective from being the "outsider" in most situations. You become that bridge between different cultures. You facilitate that dialogue between groups of people that would not otherwise think they have much in common.
Now that I've been to Europe, the Middle East and South America I can honestly say that people aren't that different deep down. We have a lot in common. We all want to go to work, raise a family, make a difference in the world, and be happy.
I began writing back home on my first deployment to Iraq. I was encouraged to give local folks a personal perspective on what was "really happening there" and what I saw. It was an eye opener for me as a young enlisted soldier. From the responses I got, it resonated with a public eager to know more back home.
When I got back, I was asked again by the Editor of the local "Sun & Record" Newspaper to write a weekly column. People liked to hear a unique perspective on things they had only seen on TV.
I was hooked. I loved taking complicated issues, doing some research on them, and breaking them down for the "Average Joe" (or Jane) to understand. As they say "Teachers learn as much if not more than pupils do" and it's been true for me in the 10 years I've been doing it. There's nothing better than getting responses from readers...even if a few of them are quite insulting and threatening...
I call this place the "Readneck Review" because that's what it is. It's a place for those willing to step outside their comfort zones to hear a unique perspective on mostly news and current events. Sometimes new movies. Sometimes weird crap I've seen out there.
it's a chance for me to try to inform people on what's going on in the world in a format they can access and without much of the spin and sensationalism that the bigger media outlets try to push for whatever reason.
It's a chance to teach.
It's a chance to learn.
It's a chance to have fun.
And ramble on like a drunk, insulted French-Canadian.
If you like it, COMMENT.
If you don't, COMMENT.
If you don't give a crap, then go do something else.
It's a free country.
Do what you want.
Be a Rebel.

In between "Hick" and "City Slicker" there is a middle ground of people who don't really have a fun stereotype to be part of.
They're too well read to really fit into rural life.
They have too much common sense to fit into city life.
We're an in between breed that straddles both worlds, taking bits of each along the way.
-Have you ever drank expensive red wine out of a cheap Solo cup?
-Can you quote Shakespeare and John Wayne equally?
-Are two big expenses in your life "Books" and "Bait?"
-Are you always moving a friend every weekend in the "Big City" because you're "the guy with the truck?"
-Are you the one at the Diner always asked about "that thing on the news" because you're the one who "follows that stuff?"
-Does the premise of Duck Dynasty (a college educated family voluntarily living in the "sticks") make perfect sense to you?
-Do dogs smaller than a cat serve any useful purpose beyond gator bait?
If you're still reading this you're probably screwed.
You are most likely a "Readneck."
You're one of us.
You'll never be "cool" but you will be "family" if you hang around long enough.
Y'all come on in and take a load off.
