The Toll Road, The Right To Bear Arms, The Alcohol Ban, Free Speech, Gay Marriage, The Point, The Dirt Road






















It's a privilege to be here in the USA, free to discuss and debate these issues, and others. As we celebrate our independence and the founding of our republic, I am mindful that this privilege is secured each day by men and women serving in our military.

I saw this picture of a U.S. Marine, from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, who was caught, without his helmet, by Taliban fire in Afghanistan on May 18, 2008. Obviously, he did not hesitate to stand up with the others in his squad and return fire. It reminded me of the sacrifices that those serving in our military make for all our citizens.

He was not hit and is okay.

I second that! Being ex-Navy I can appreciate what these young men and women are doing and I salute them especially my nephew SGT. Kirt Diaz USMC Camp Pendleton with 2 tours in Iraq.

But would they let him have a beer at SanO? No, and that's what he's fighting for, our freedom. Our freedom to drink beer, call that reef a point, overlook the gay guys among us, and I, too, appreciate his service.

Anon', you get for what you pay. This blog is reader supported. We oppose beer guzzling ar SANO. I happened to be at a church picnic today. Al was there, boy is he a mess. I glad they have "no drinking" at our beach, vet or no.

"hags regular", 'bull'!
Just what are you trying to say. Bull, what? You must avoid one syllable sentences. Clarify, please.
