Big Dick, Bitch, and Fire: TBT PFC Moses Cardenes | It was summer in Rawah Iraq, 2007 NSW and The Highlanders had teamed up to lay hate and discontent through their battle-space w- a small Marine DET next door who stayed getting fucked up at Blue Hackle compound on Camp Kassem. CallsignFatal Highlanders TrojanHorse HunterKiller TFHighlander A young, skinny PFC with BCGs on his face and fire in his heart named Moses Cardenas was a Scout on his first combat deployment. On Aug 2, 07, his platoon set up a snap VCP. (2) bongos eerily halted in the distance refusing to advance. Suddenly(5) muj fucks started laying HEAVY hate on the plt w- PKMs and RPGs immediately wounding Rodie trying to bound for cover. Unable to engage from his position, Cardenas slung his dick over his shoulder, clutched his SAW for dear-fucking-life, and sprinted into the danger zone. While pulling a marine that was easily TWICE his fucking bodyweight w-o gear and ammo, he took a round to the neck that instantly dropped him. Having not one bitchmade bone in his body, he got back up, chicken winged his SAW and laid hate on the trucks while simultaneously walking backwards and buddy dragging Rodie. He then got shot AGAIN and dropped to the ground. But Cardenas having no quit in his heart got back up and dragged Rodie to safety. As soon as he was clear of the LAVs line of fire, big dick Texan Drew Perry opened up on bongo trucks w- 25mm and turned those motherfuckers into scrambled eggs. Unfortunately the platoon lost Lcpl Christian Vasquez but be damned if he didn’t fight bravely that day. Moses Cardenas was given the Silver Star for his actions MOSES CARDENAS SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED A MEDAL OF HONOR FOR WHAT HE DID ON THIS DAY. But due to the officer elitist nature of the United States Marine Corps, Cardenas received no such recognition and had he been you can be sure some coffee-sipping, clean-cammie-having, paper-bitch of an officer would have done their best to hinder the process. Fortunately for the Marine Corps, he’s still leading Marines to this day and has somehow found sets of trousers that fit his massive fucking balls. All the respect in the world for this Marine, Highlander forever. OAF TBT OAFNation

Both are equally terrifying. -Arthur C. Clark Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds -Albert Einstein Of all sad words of mouth or pen, the saddest are these: it might have been. -John Greenleaf Whittier I fear not the man who has practised 10,000 kicks, but I do fear the man who has practised one kick 10,000 times.

But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. Albert Einstein As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world-that is the myth of the atomic age- as in being able to remake ourselves. Mahatma Gandhi The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed. In a closed society where everybody's guilty, the only crime is getting caught. In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. Dwight D. Eisenhower Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. zu Dalai Llama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity said: "Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly leaning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off -Chuck Palahniuk The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are. HL Mencken <p>Quotes That Will Probably Give You Chills</p>

Abraham Lincoln, Alive, and Life: UNOLE TOM'S CABIN OB, LIFE AMONG THE LOWLY. BY HARRIET BEECHER STOWE. VOL. I ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTH THOUSAND. BOST O N: JOHN P. JEWETT & COMPANY CLEVELAND, OHIO: JEWETT, PROCTOR & WORTHINGTON. 1852. <p><a href="http://todayinhistory.tumblr.com/post/120797926895/june-5th-1851-uncle-toms-cabin-begins" class="tumblr_blog">todayinhistory</a>:</p> <blockquote><h2><b>June 5th 1851: <i>Uncle Tom’s Cabin</i> begins publication</b></h2><p><small>On this day in 1851, the first installment of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s <i>Uncle Tom’s Cabin</i> appeared in abolitionist newspaper the <i>National Era, </i>beginning a serial which lasted for forty weeks. <i>Uncle Tom’s Cabin</i> tells the story of a black slave and recounts the harsh reality of his enslavement. Stowe was an ardent advocate of the abolition of slavery, and wrote the novel in response to the passage of the controversial 1850 Fugitive Slave Act which was part of the Compromise of 1850. The Act ordered Northern citizens to assist in the return of runaway slaves from the South, thus forcing the generally anti-slavery North to become complicit in the continuance of the ‘peculiar institution’. The popular discontent over the slavery issue helped make <i>Uncle Tom’s Cabin</i> the best-selling novel of the nineteenth century and saw its translation into sixty languages. The novel helped keep the flames of anti-slavery sentiment alive, and is therefore sometimes attributed with helping start the American Civil War. Whilst still hailed as a great anti-slavery work of its day, the novel falls short of modern expectations with its stereotypical portrayal of African-Americans.</small></p><blockquote><b><i><small>“So you’re the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war”</small></i></b><br/><small>- what, according to legend, Abraham Lincoln said upon meeting Stowe in 1862</small></blockquote></blockquote>
