Allen West is an embarrassment to anyone remotely attached to the Tea Party/fiscal conservative section of society. Here's hoping he's a one termer.
"Remember that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have.” Barry Goldwater
Anyone care to guess who the author of that quote is?If we're an arrogant nation, they'll resent us; if we're a humble nation, but strong, they'll welcome us. And our nation stands alone right now in the world in terms of power, and that's why we've got to be humble, and yet project strength in a way that promotes freedom.

If something bad happens, we will be blamed. If something good happens, we will get no credit. If nothing happens, we will be forgotten.
Why should I respect the opinions of someone that thinks a flat-top is a good idea.
If you don't live you life on the edge, you will never see the view

An officer in Iraq who used shock interrogation tactics to thwart an impending attack on American soldiers was punished with forfeiture of two month's pay, according to his lawyer.
Previously faced with the possibility of a court martial, Lt. Col. Allen B. West accepted Article 15 non-judicial punishment from the commanding general of the 4th Infantry Division at a hearing today in Tikrit, Iraq, said Neal A. Puckett, a retired Marine officer.
Puckett said the loss of pay amounts to $5,000.
