Weekly Full of Win Post

Posted by Max Barron on May 19, 2009

Forgive the tardiness of this post.  As said in a separate post – I suffered catastrophic hardware failure and spent the better part of the weekend and yesterday recovering files and re-installing my operating systems and programs. 

Without further ado I give you the weekly Full of Win winners.  Normally there is only one winner and I typically restrict it to non-professional blogs (i.e. Wall Street Journal online, etc are professional).  However, this week we saw a very humorous post from IowaHawk and got special treat from Peter Heck at OneNewsNow.com.  IowaHawk delivered some laugh out loud hilarity – which, sadly, is all also very true.  I had tears reading it… My sides still hurt. 

Our next winner here brings back a more somber tone with an eloquently delivered “shame on you” to Barack Obama for his Apology tour.  Frankly, no one has said it better than Mr. Heck.  I encourage you all to read it.  It’s worth it!

I Guess You Had To Be There

Arrogant Americans, Mr. President?

As I was sitting in church waiting for the start of the service, my grandpa came walking towards me pointing his finger. No matter how old I get, and no matter how long he’s been out of the U.S. Navy, that’s still an intimidating sight. As he approached me, his voice quivered as he said, “We saved that continent twice…how dare my president apologize for this country’s arrogance.” My grandpa is right. Americans need not apologize to the world for their arrogance; rather, Americans should apologize to their forefathers for the arrogance of their president.
