Ok I am back

It's been over a year, but I alone hail my triumphant return. I no longer work in the great hot nowhere. It's closer to the great gay nowhere now. Went from a very small station to a relatively large station. OMG what a difference.

I have a lot of challenges ahead of me. I have a few great soldiers that I work for, and a few crappy soldiers that I work for.

I am really looking forward to it.

Those of you that actually read this nonsense, I offer my apologies for not putting anything new for a while.

So much has changed since my last post and we will talk about it all. I promise.

What a crazy month

I can't believe that it's been since the end of last month since I posted anything. It's amazing to me how I can go 150% one month, then the next month turn around and finish at 33%. Well that's how it looks like I am going to finish anyway. I guess that's what I get for not sandbagging last month. We'll see if that ever happens again. We started out looking good. Had a few guys lined up, and pow all but one of them fell through. Oh well. At least we are still 100% for the quarter. I was hoping to be done with the quarter this month. Oh well we just move on right? I really do like the $20,000 quick ship bonus though. I think that is a fantastic idea for the Army right now. We are advertising the crap out of it too. A whole lotta folks have come in asking about it too. Too bad none of them are qualified. HA

So I was at a grocery store today and I noticed something intriging and I was wondering why nobody is complaining yet.

I will leave off the brand names, but these are real prices by the gallon of some items at a real grocery store.

Baby Wash and Shampoo $90.88 PG
Mexican Beer $14.08 PG
Tequila $52.48 PG
Dr or Mr Something $8.96 PG
Island Water $6.40 PG
Cranberry Juice $33.28 PG
OJ (not the killer) $3.84 PG
Soy Sauce $28.16 PG
Dish Soap $12.80 PG
Fabric Softener $14.08 PG
Tomato Pasta Sauce $20.48 PG
Alfredo Sauce $33.28 PG

How come nobody is on the news crying about how much this stuff costs. Really how much could it cost to make a gallon of pasta sauce? 20 cents tops. Yet nobody is complaining about price gouging, or unfair profit margins. Ninety dollars a gallon for some baby shampoo? Wow

150% Today

Well barring any unforseen mishaps at MEPS, we should hit 150% today.

Thought of the day.

Punk rock is supposed to be about bucking the system, and individuality, and standing out against the norm, and being different right?

So if everybody is punk, and everybody seems to be, doesn't that make punk the same thing as Britanny Spears?

Mission Box and thought of the day.

So today we Boxed. For those of you who don't know what that means. We hit our "sales" goal. The month is not yet over and we have two more seniors enlisting on Friday. I can't think of a better way to welcome a new CSM than by going 150%. We are the shit.

My thought of the day is this. How come everytime Recruiting struggles a bit, it's got to get posted all over the news. Does anyone think that this helps our cause? Really. I think that everytime some young person who is considering serving his or her country sees this sort of stuff they think "well gee if no one else is doing it why should I."

Another thought. I was talking with someone a few days ago who is really into all of this Anti-Recruiting nonsense, and I had a good laugh about it as always. These are the people who stand out in front of high schools and what not, protesting recruiters looking for VOLUNTEERS to serve the country. I told this young fella who believes that we can love our enemies into submission "y'know I hope your cause wins I really do. Because when you do win, and I am not allowed to find people who are willing to volunteer to fight and provide to you the right to be retarded, the country has to start a draft, and I get you all. There will be no more volunteer only Army. I get every single one of ya. Do you realize how easy that would make my job? All I would have to do is show up at your house and tell you what time you gotta be there.

It's been a while

You know, when I started this blog, I had every intention of writing something clever everyday. Apparently I'm not that clever.

My station is one away from mission box, as of today, and two away from taking top small station in the battalion. I have three more lined up for the month, hopefully all will go well and we can take it to the top.

I hope everyone reading this had a great 4Th of July. Yesterday was awesome for me. I love getting together with friends and celebrating the birth of this great nation. I watched the Revolution mini series on the History channel too. If you haven't seen it I recommend you do. You might learn some things about the revolution you didn't know.

I also found one of my other sisters today (thank God for MYSPACE right). I am so excited about that, that I don't know what to do. It has been 15 years at least since i have spoken to anyone on that side of my family, to include my parents. I have looked for so long, that now that I have found them I don't even know what to say. My friend John tells me I have real forgiveness issues. He's probably right. He always is. I still consider myself a fledgling Christian, so I have a lot of issues like that I'm hoping God will help me through. Wish me luck. I had to find that side of my family again though. My kids need to know there is more to us than what's been presented so far.

Saturday I went to a Dodger game, and for the first time in about 15 years I sat in the pavilion, it only took me about 15 minutes to remember why we don't sit there anymore. Game went into extra innings, Dodgers lost, sucked. I got to spend two whole days with just my wife and no kids though, so it was worth it. Sometimes I forget just how sweet my wife can be. It's funny how adding a couple of crazy kids into your life can change a person. I like her better when there's no screaming monters around. Hey only thirteen years to go, and I can get rid of both of them right?

Oh so because it's made in Texas somehow makes it more American? I don't really think so. I think that all of these foriegn car companies have a plan. I think that the whole purpose of putting them here in the first place was to give people a warm fuzzy feeling about buying them. You say to yourself, well gee they make these Honda's in Alabama so they are just as American as a Ford right? WRONG! What do you think is going to happen to all of those plants once Toyota has killed off Ford and Chevy for good? Do you think Honda will still need to keep paying workers in Ohio twice as much as they pay workers in Osaka? You know sometimes the enemy doesn't come in waving the flags of war. Sometimes they come in waving the flags of peace and good intentions. Ten years from now everyone will be wondering what the hell happened, and how come we can't buy any domestic made products at all anymore. Wondering why there is no steel industry left, why there is no plastic industry left, and why suddenly there is nowhere for Mr. Blue Collar Worker Man to collect a paycheck from.
