If You Read Nothing Else Today
It's a speech given by Marine Corps General Mike Lehnert, Commander Marine Corps Bases (West), given in San Diego recently. I won't copy the whole thing here, instead, go to American Thinker and read it; I will however copy my favorite paragraph from it:
Let me be clear. Pay day lenders are not providing our Marines with a service. they are parasites, bottom feeders and scumbags. One of them sent me a note recently telling me that he was a member of an honorable profession and that I should back off. He told me that a pay day lending institution had been found in the ruins of Pompey after Mount Vesuvius erupted. I responded to him that archeologists also found a whore house and that antiquity did not bequeath virtue. It is a shameful practice.
The rest of the speech covers everything from Stanford graduations, Iraq, Military and civilian relations in San Diego and California, and every bit of it makes sense.
