Some random guy

Whoever this "guy" is on this interview, he sure is handsome. You have to wait for the president to stop talking before this handsome guy starts speaking. Did I mention he is handsome?

Dude! I don't know about you, but SHE was as cute as a button! :)

Gotta echo the last comment, Damn. In all seriousness though thanks to both of you for being part of the broadcast. It's nice to see the local news getting the perspective of someone who has been there.

Interesting broadcast.

I even tediously downloaded Real Player to watch it.

Of course, at the encouragement of seeing someone so handsome, how could I not?

Literally, GOOD TO SEE YOU Smink!
I think the general public needs to hear the Soldier's opinion more. Overheard two conversations at work today that were pure "straight from the MSM anchors mouth". This is all they hear. Sadly they will not go to the effort to find out more.

It would be so easy to cut and run in a tough situation like this, but we need to stay and finish the job. There is no doubt in my mind about that. By doing that, we honor those who have given their lives to make it happen...both our soldiers and the Iraqis who have been slaughtered. It's good to hear the viewpoints of soldiers who have been there done that. It really encourages the families of soldiers who are about to go...at least it does for me. Thank you!!

By the way, I like random stuff, don't you? :)

Didn't realize it was you I saw on the news last night until I read your post today.

Handsome...yes...a true hero...definitely! Thanks for being a great local voice of one who's "been there".

P.S. ...anybody catch Nancy Palosi's (waaa, waaa, waaa) comments afterwards? Always got to throw barbs - what's her solution to keep the country free? Whine?

Smink - you rock!

Okay, Smink, you're cute but you talk funny. I would have sworn after reading your blog that you spoke with a Canadian accent. Funny how the mind works, eh? Now, I have a couple of questions. Why does 'kbug' call you Casanova? Did I miss something in your postings to explain this appellation?

As for the topic at hand, I did not view your President's speech (no TV); but, from what I have read on the net, what else would the man have said? Would anyone have realistically expected President George W. Bush to say he was pulling American troops out of Iraq? No news here.

I look forward to your postings, Smink. Best wishes,

S.N. from BC, Canada

Nice job Smink! Love your decore. I bet the chick was really impressed, too. Did you splash-on a little Brute for the interview?

Take care...

Great job Smink!!

No, SN, you didn't miss anything in the postings that explains why I call him Casanova...... :)

S.N.,

I'm an Okie, but what's funny is I work with a lot of Canadians. And I just love their (your) pronunciation of words. Great people.

It's nice to finally see a face with a name!!! Great interview!! I hope you never have to go back to that awful place!! My hubby is still over there!! :-(

kbug,I would say that you are leaving much unsaid and Smink isn't talking, either.

Smink, I am glad you have such a favourable impression of Canadians and the way we speak. To Britians, we sound American and to Americans, we sound British and so we dwell between two nations: one our mother country and the other our powerful neighbour. We have been influenced and shaped by both but hopefully we will continue to follow our own path.

As for your Oklahoma accent, it's cute, too. Have you managed to pick up our "eh" working with all those Canucks? I wouldn't hesitate as it is extremely versatile.

You take care now, eh.

Hey, s.n., take off, eh? Go suck back some beers. Doncha know it's "Britons" or "Brits"? And "Britain" is the place. Ain't no such nuthin' as a "Britian". How'd you pronounce that, anyway? "Brishun"? Heh.

Actually, I think Smink would make a good 3rd MacKenzie Brother. :)

SN,

My client is French-Canadian, so I catch myself speaking a little FrenchEnglo slang every now and then. Seriously, though, Canadians are such good people, especially the farm folks.

Nice to finally "see" you! What a cutie :)

...definitely need to stay home and do some work on the atmosphere in the apartment though!

HAHA I love Kim's remark bout the apartment. Hey Smink come on out to Az. I got a 23yr old that needs uuummm OH just a friend. Good to see ya guy,and where did ya find the chick. Gave up the Brute huh.

Smink! She is SO CUTE! And of course... so are you. *grin*

You both did a great job with the interviews.

Hi there ##name##,

I read your comments on the home business opportunity. As for me and I believe many average jacks out there, keeping a day job is a necessity. However, up until 7 weeks back I could not face another day without the knowledge that I need to radically change my life inorder to stay in credit..and start dreaming about savings.

The explosive nature of the internt and its supercon artists (experienced net-marketers) is singularly responsible for the 98% failure rate of all newbie related online business failures.

In my view any one wanting to explore their luck online is doomed to failure. The problem with the newbie is not that of access to quality products. No, it is how and where to market the product that has been dumped rather cleverly by the experienced marketer in the newbies hands.

After 4 years of trying almost every strategy without success I can honestly say any one trying their luck on online opportunities needs be ware. Prospecting and marketing costs are way too high for the newbie. Often, as only I have learnt, the newbie puts money into hyped marketing systems that do not deliver the traffic that is required for making sales.

A clever solution to this newbie predicament has been solved by Bill Osterhout's Prosperity Automated System. In here there is no selling, no prospecting, no marketing. No emailling lists here, no advertisements, no phone calls, no no MLMs or chain letters. The PAS system hooks its self to search engines when people search for home business opportunity related information. It sells itself or whatever product you happen to be promoting, closes the sale for you and you get the money. Bill has levelled the playing filled, compelled the newbie to make money or make excuses, while allowing the experienced marketer to feed the system with steroids for enhanced sales.
Everyone closes a sale here within a month or so, getting $3000 per sale. It is here: http://www.MegaWealthy.com/224

I thougth I should help some of your readers who may have given up hope...well now there is!

To your success
