Too Bad for San Francisco


Gateway Pundit quotes Our Marines:

We traveled to 10 different states and 15 locations across the U.S. to create the "America's Marines" commercial.

Except...San Francisco.

I think they've left their heart...and their minds...in a black hole somewhere. I'll never go back.

UPDATE: If you've never seen the Silent Drill Team, watch...and weep. It's a thing of beauty.

A warm Swill Salute to Tizona.

The end of The Great Raid has newsreel footage (presumably) from after the raid, of the rescued American military personnel. It then segues from those clips to news clips of troop ships sailing home to a HUGE welcome (possibly the ex-POWs, doesn't matter). Bands, families, you name it.

The port that they were sailing into? San Francisco, you can tell from the Golden Gate Bridge.

I saw that, and wondered just how it was that San Francisco, once the backbone of the US military along the Pacific Coast, had slid so far into such a snake pit. Truly, a pity.

I saw this the other day. I love that parting shot. And people say that Marines have no sense of humor.

Hey there - glad I found your blog! I've been prowling around here for the past half hour - you've got some good stuff here. You're now rss'ed.

And say g'day to The Beast for me.
