This is Marine Lt. Col. Jeffrey Chessani. For more than 20 years, the Colonel has had your back. He's had your back three different times in Iraq including the second battle of Fallujah; once in the first Persian Gulf War and has also served in Panama. It has been said by his superiors that Col Chessani has unlimited potential and value to the Marine Corps. That he has demonstrated moral courage and that he is a superb leader. And now on December 1, 2009 he is facing a Military Board of Inquiry (BOI) to figure out if he is guilty (45 comments)
The thing about those who keep telling us in real "Flash Gordon" style, that we only have a month and a half to save the planet, is that they are - at best - economical with the truth. You see if you REALLY believe that we are destroying the planet (just so we are clear, I do not!), then getting behind the wheel of a Prius or buying carbon offsets from your own company while you move swiftly around the world in a private jet, is truly not the problem. The problem is MUCH more basic than that... if (13 comments)
"At approximately 0622 on Sunday, 23 Oct. 1983, the Battalion Landing Team headquarters building in the Marine Amphibious Unit compound at Beirut International Airport was destroyed by a terrorist bomb. The catastrophic attack took the lives of 241 Marines, sailors and soldiers and wounded more than 100 others." - So started the Department of Defense Commission Report on the event which started the terrorist war against the United States - and make no mistake, we are in a war. All that has changed since the cowards sprung their murderous surprise on sleeping Marines is apparently our desire to win this (17 comments)
As I write this at 8am on Tuesday 20 October, 2009, some THREE MILLION pink slips have been sent to members of Congress individually addressed, personalized with senders name and address and delivered to all members of Congress by Fed Ex. Three million after just THREE WEEKS since the campaign started. The idea was conceived by Janet Porter of Faith2Action and a WND weekly columnist. "They didn't listen to the Tea Parties and the Town Halls; maybe they'll start listening when they're tripping over boxes of Pink Slips and stacking them from floor to ceiling!" she said "We need to (25 comments)
Hey You! - 10/15/09 04:38 PM
More great stuff from one of my favorite bloggers... Via Kevin Robinson Custom Home Builder (Crownline Home Builders): Yeah you! I am talking to you! What are you going to do about this mess? Got any ideas? Damn dude, for something like a year, all I heard from you was how the current guy was not doing the job right, and how your competitor would not be able to do the job. You talked like you were the guy. You had this whole thing figured out and were going to fix the problem. Man, you are no different than a bad used car salesman. Promise (6 comments)
And now for something REALLY spooky! - 10/15/09 04:35 PM
You will most certainly not have heard yet, that at the end of October - on Halloween to be exact - Federal funding of Acorn returns. You see the vote in Congress to defund the organisation actually only achieved that for one month. Congress is trying to put one over on you. YOU MUST CALL YOUR SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES! I know how time consuming it is. I know how frustrating it is when you actually get through to some assistant who couldn't care less what you say, but I also know how effective it is. These people do not get (9 comments)
OK I admit it - I stole the headline. But where I stole it from might come as a bit of a shock. I stole it from the BBC. When even the BBC starts to question the validity of the greatest con ever perpetrated on mankind then you know there is a problem. Last time I was guest hosting for Bud Hedinger on 540 WFLA, one of my guests was Phelim McAleer - an Irish film maker who's movie "Not Evil, Just Wrong" comes out this week (Remeber where you heard it first!!). Now it would seem that the rest (19 comments)

For the sake of our troops - MAKE A DECISION!!!!! - 10/07/09 10:29 PM
Is it too much to expect the Commander in Chief to behave like one? Another ten brave men died this weekend in a war in Afghanistan that we are most certainly not winning right now. The reason we are not winning is political - not military. We have once again forgotten who we are. Take a look at these two simple quotes from one of the greatest men this nation as ever produced. "In war there is no substitute for victory" - General Douglas MacArthur "It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it" - General Douglas (25 comments)
Why is Crist hiding from Florida voters? - 10/07/09 10:11 PM
Florida Governor Charlie Crist has refused to face the voters. Specifically the Republican voters who get to choose between him and former Speaker Marco Rubio at the Senate Primary next year. Let me explain. Last time I was filling in for Bud Hedinger on 540 WFLA, Speaker Rubio was a guest on the show. At the end of that interview I challenged the Speaker to come back to 540 WITH the Governor for a special program - some might call it debate - and take questions posed by the listeners. The Speaker agreed immediately. I then contacted my boss on the (5 comments)
Palin book tops Amazon pre-order lists - 10/04/09 08:12 AM
Sarah Palin's book - due out on November 17 - is already top of the charts at both Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. In fact "Going Rogue is beating out the likes of Ted Kennedy's "True Compass," Dan Brown's "The Lost Symbol," his first novel since "The Da Vinci Code" and Glenn Beck's "Arguing With Idiots" (side bar - does anyone have a problem with the NY Times not reviewing Beck's books? This is his THIRD NY Times #1 bestseller and the paper has never reviewed any of his books). A massive 1.5 million copies of the former Alaskan Governor's book will be (30 comments)
Grayson says sorry... almost! - 10/02/09 02:18 PM
This morning I contacted the office of Congressman Alan Grayson. We could discuss his speech to the House. We could discuss the attempts to make him say sorry coming from both sides of the political isle. We could even discuss his motives - many say have nothing to do with health care.But the thing I wanted to discuss was his use of the word "HOLOCAUST". I'm not interested in dictionary definitions, just in what it means to millions of people all across the planet.So when I contacted his office this morning I had but one question. Does the Congressman wish to (22 comments)
As regular readers of my blog will know, I have been doing more on the radio recently and that 540 WFLA decided to give me a daily blog. It's been running for a short while now, and today it got a name! When I was asked about naming it, my first reaction was "anything except 'Simon Sez'!" Anyway, I came up with the title that I am extremely proud of. You click the banner above and please do sign up for the RSS Feed at the bottom of that page when you get there.

A tale of two Presidents - 10/01/09 10:21 AM
Right now the President is in Denmark - acting as a lobbyist for Chicago in order to get the Olympic Games for that city. All this despite the fact that Chicagoans are at best luke warm about the games going there in 2016. There are protests and websites - try http://www.chicagoansforrio.com/ So now we have the President, the First Lady, Oprah and others flying in on separate planes to try and get something that by the latest poll, half the City doesn't want. And considering the corruption that always seems to surround Olympic Games, is Chicago with its history the best (17 comments)
