Sheep, Wolves, Sheepdogs and Shepherds

The Sheepdog analogy is in Dave Grossman’s book On Combat - Page 180.

You can read the analogy and participate in the shepherd discussion HERE.

BLACKFIVE has a post on the topic HERE.

According to the Killology Research Group (KRG) web site- Lt. Colonel Grossman and KRG have formed a partnership with Bruce Siddle and PPCT. (PPCT consists of 50,000 use of force instructors, certified in 48 states and 18 nations) This new organization is known as the Warrior Science Group (WSG).

If you happen to be a heavy metal fan, a Christian and a sheepdog then I encourage you to listen to the song "Game On" by Disciple.  Read the lyrics and you will understand.  There is a YouTube video HERE where scenes from the movie "300" are combined with the song and a video HERE where the song is combined with military aviation footage.

Press Gets Hygiene Lesson After Sneeze

Source Article HERE

Now that we have all been instructed on the "correct way to sneeze"- I wouldn't put it past this bunch if they tried to slip $100 fines for "improper sneezing technique" into the next version of the health reform bill.

After all, it would be "a great revenue stream" and "the right and moral thing to do".

Does this mean that I have to stop carrying my hankey and make a full transition to the fist-bump?

Michael Savage Podcast Discontinued! 910 KNEW has taken Savage Off the Air.

910 KNEW has stopped broadcasting Michael Savage
Here is the reason listed on the 910 KNEW blog:

"Hello, Big week around here. Let's get to it. I'm going to answer the very first question many of you have. "Why did you take Michael Savage off the air?" Here's your no-spin direct answer; we have decided to go in a different philosophical and ideological direction, featuring more contemporary content and more local information. The Savage Nation does not fit into that vision. Now I'd like you to meet the new guys: Say hello to John and Ken. Starting today and every weekday afternoon from 3-7, also Sundays from 1-3pm. These are Californians, doing a California based show, talking about things that are happening in YOUR state. Contemporary, funny, compelling. These boys are the real deal. If you love Armstrong and Getty, you will get John and Ken from show #1. The entire revamped lineup can be found HERE. More stimulating Talk. 910 AM is now more focused on you, your pocketbook and cultural issues, and we're not afraid to have fun and laugh and entertain you. That's why you listen. This is why it's happening."

Well, since 910 KNEW was hosting the Savage Nation podcast and no local station carries his broadcast in my area, I currently have no way to listen to his show.  First, he is Banned in Britian and now he is Banned from my Ipod.  I have been listening to him for nearly a year.  I have to say that his show was the most entertaining and informative of the bunch.  I hope that Savage will start hosting his own podcast and start his own online radio station as he has mentioned a few times on the show.  But for or now, this member of the Savage Nation will remain- "Cut off behind enemy lines."  Michael Savage's web site can be found HERE.

Update:  The savage podcast is available by subscription HERE.  Apparently, you can listen live or podcast his show with a subscription ($5.95/mo) through the Talk Radio Network.  910KNEW had been podcasting his show for free.

Update:  A link to several hundred Savage Nation streaming stations is HERE.

Forwarded to me via email.  Enjoy:
THE OLD VERSION: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

For more information see: How do ants pass the winter? 
To learn more about the ant in the photo see: door-maker ant (Stenamma alas).
Here are links to Aesop's Fables: The Ant and the Grasshopper, Online Collection - Selected Fables

NOW- THE MODERN VERSION: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.

CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green.' Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant 's house where the news stations film the group singing, 'We shall overcome.' Jesse then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.

Nancy Pelosi & John Kerry exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ants food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around him because he doesn't maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow. The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2010.

The thing called a chigger,
is really no bigger,
than the smaller end of a pin,
but the bump that it raises,
just itches like blazes,
and that's where the rub sets in.
-H.B. Hungerford,

Here are a couple of a places to learn about chiggers:
