You can't make wrong into right by doing wrong more effectively. It's time for real MEN to stand up and take back our families, our society, and our self respect. It is not a crime to be born a man. It is not a crime to act manly.

Major Richard Winters died. A hero is lost.

Major Richard Winters, the commanding officer of Easy Company, the Army unit whose gritty combat from the beaches of Normandy to the capture of Hitler's mountain retreat was recounted in the book and television series "Band of Brothers," died Jan. 2 in Campbelltown, Pa. He was 92 and lived in Hershey, Pa.

Among the many battles fought by Easy Company was their defense of the town of Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. As usual for Easy Company they were outnumbered, out gunned, and surrounded. Short of ammunition and without winter clothing they survived blizzards and repeated German assaults to hold the crossroads at Bastogne until Patton's 3rd Army arrived. Times story here

Major Winters always denied being a hero. He would only say, "I served with heroes." May he rest in peace.

I'm sure he did, Achmed. That's how we do it in the civilized world. You know, the places that breed heroes like Major Winters. You have at least heard of civilization, right? You used to have it in the 12th century. Try looking into it again. Or, go back to Yemen or wherever you came from. You won't be missed. Taxi drivers and 7-11 clerks come cheap here.
