Ranking America's Generals →
This evening, I read for fun General Patton’s Speech to the Third Army. I then tried to see how he ranked in comparison to America’s other historical generals, which in turn, inspired me to rank m… A rather non-political post, I decided to rank America’s generals for fun last night. Check it out! (Especially you, Hillary Berche!)

Same Blog, New Title
In order to be a little more professional, I have renamed my blog, The Alex Account as opposed to extremedays744. Hence, the new website is as follows: http://thealexaccount.wordpress.com/
What the Primary Season Has Taught Me
In my newest post, I discuss the culmination of observation and participation in the 2012 primary season. The good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright strange. http://extremedays744.wordpress.com/2012/07/15/what-this-primary-season-has-taught-me-26/
An Olive Branch to the Ron Paul Supporters
In my newest post, I try to make the first step towards reconciliation with the youthful, passionate, and growing group of supporters for Dr. Ron Paul. http://extremedays744.wordpress.com/2012/07/10/an-olive-branch-to-the-ron-paul-supporters-2/
End the Delegate System!
A post on how silly the Republican’s system of electing the nominee is. http://extremedays744.wordpress.com/2012/07/05/simplify-the-republican-primaries-9/
First New Post!

Moving Blog To a New Site
Hey everyone! I have finally decided to move my main blog to a site that is actually for BLOGS. If you enjoy reading my writing (or read it and disagree with everything I say), then be sure to check in at extremedays744.wordpress.com. I will continue to use my Tumblr, but in a less obnoxious way (I will probably post links to my latest blogpost). Anyways, you all are great! Happy 4th!
Mitt Romney: The New Obi-Wan Kenobi
In the 1977 classic, Star Wars (A New Hope), the embattled Princess Leia of Alderaan put a message into the memory of R2D2. The message was a plea for help in their “most desperate hour… help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.” With the Supreme Court’s decision today to uphold the Affordable Care Act as a “tax,” Governor Romney is the last line of defense we have against the law becoming...
Who Wants to Be Vice President?
Since Mitt Romney has officially clinched the nomination (even though some of the most ardent of Ron Paul’s supporters deny this), the time has come for the great sport of Vice Presidential speculation. Luckily for me, I get paid to do this in my internship, but my work is far from done at this point (I am researching the various political positions of the candidates, especially the social...
The Time Has Come to Settle for Mitt
By now, all of my followers and readers (all maybe 10 of you) should be aware that Rick Santorum has exited the race, citing his devotion to Bella and the fact that any realistic chances of winning the primary were beginning to slip away. Hence, I am now forced to support Mitt Romney, even though I have hardly sugarcoated my disdain for the man. That the Republican Party is forced to...
Why is Rush Limbaugh the Hero of the Left?
Since President Obama mandated that employers (with a few exceptions set to expire) provide “birth control” in their government-mandated health control packages, the debate has been whether or not this mandate violates religious freedom. Rush Limbaugh’s ill-advised sarcasm, pointing out the absurdity of the logical conclusion of the mandate, has allowed the media and the left to...
How and Who do we move forward?
Wow! What an atrocious debate performance by all of the candidates, with the possible exception of Newt. This blog post will be a quick recap of tonight’s debate, an analysis of how each candidate is doing right now, and a formulation of possible VP picks for each candidates. Debate Performances Newt Gingrich: Without question, Newt was the winner of tonight’s debate. He reverted to...
What is the Situation now that Huntsman is out?
Today, the GOP field of presidential candidates lost another contender, Governor and Ambassador, Jon Huntsman Jr. With yet another debate tonight, this time in an effort to court South Carolina voters, here is how the situation looks to me now that the GOP has lost its best chance to defeat Barack Obama, only considering the 3 serious candidates that remain. Rick Santorum- Santorum...
How is the GOP Field Shaping Up?
It’s Primary Season Folks! The 2012 GOP Primaries officially kick off next week in New Hampshire, but for all intents and purposes, it has already kicked off with the Iowa Caucuses. Michele Bachmann has already dropped out, Perry and Gingrich are mustering their remaining forces for a last stand in the South, and the others have started turning on each other. Here, now, we have a clearer...
Presidential Candidates Status Report
With less than a month to go before the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire Primary, the end of the road is drawing closer for some of the GOP candidates. This became abundantly clear last Saturday when, in a bizarre speech that concluded with a Pokémon quote, Herman Cain announced the “suspension” of his campaign. Some candidates are staking it all on Iowa, and some are counting on...
Who Won Tonight's Debate?
Tonight’s debate sure was an entertaining one: Herman Cain was finally put in the spotlight as a new top-tier candidate, and he touted his 9-9-9 plan repeatedly. Rick Perry’s ship continued to sink, and Mitt Romney was also caught in the crossfire. Here is a quick reaction to each of the candidates. Mitt Romney: Romney did what he needed to do tonight. Especially with the final pronouncement...
Is a Neo-Marxist Revolution Imminent?
According to many commenters on Yahoo! News yesterday, we are on the brink of a “revolution” of sorts. These comments were in response to a news report about protestors who were arrested in New York for an “unauthorized march.” At first, it was fun to read the absurd charges they were making about workers, who, essentially function as “middle men” in our economy; but it grew then to a certain...
Race to 888
This coming Tuesday, the 4th of October, will be a monumental day in American history- and not for good reasons. The Freshmen Republicans in Congress are planning on mentioning it in the New York Times, and I am sure many talk radio shows and other sources of alternative media will mention it, as well. What is the significance of this day? Well, my friends, this Tuesday will mark the 888th...
Is it Possible?
Tomorrow morning, I, along with several others from the Life Advocates group on campus are heading down to Pittsburgh to pray in front of the abortion clinic and minister to any woman we can. Thus, for the past few days and weeks, this volatile issue has been weighing heavily on mind, especially the question of whether or not the law can be useful in ending this monstrosity that...
Analysis of the Reagan Debate
Well another Republican Debate is in the books. As Journey so eloquently sung in Don’t Stop Believin’, “some will win, some will lose, some are born to sing the blues.” To be honest, I really did not find a “winner”, per se, in this debate; it is difficult, at best, to determine a winner of an 8 person debate that lasts two hours. But we shall do our best to compare each candidate’s...
A Preview of Wednesday Night's Debate
Wednesday night will be another chance for the candidates to make their pitch to America. This particular debate will be interesting because the new face in the crowd will be the hub of attention because of his status as the new “frontrunner” while others will be fighting to regain their momentum and reboot their campaigns. Still others, namely Cain, Gingrich, and Huntsman, are in...
Rick Perry- Prize or Phony?
The biggest news, election-wise, to happen in the last month has been the emergence of Texas Governor, Rick Perry, in the chaotic field of GOP Candidates. Most news agencies now claim that Perry has stolen Mitt Romney’s thunder and has emerged as the new GOP frontrunner. Some people are more skeptical about his chances (based largely on sound bites and out-of-context statements that...
A Modern Oligarchy Full of Tyrants
Judicial activism has reached a new level this week- dictating funding (a legislative responsibility) and deciding that abortion is too important of a constitutional necessity to be threatened by mandated viewing of an ultrasound. Both of these infuriate me, not only because I believe abortion to be a tragic evil that has attacked our country, but also because the judicial branch is...
Riots, Downgrades, Hope, and Change- The Tale of...
Wow. Where even to begin? Both domestically and abroad, the world has seen very drastic actions undertaken by ruling elite and serf alike. There has been good news, such as the unimaginable victory of the GOP in Wisconsin, the ability of the government to avoid default-at least in the immediate future- and the brilliant moves by the Philadelphia Eagles (not that it is of anywhere near...
A Watershed Moment for America?
These next few weeks could be a defining period for our country for decades to come. This standoff between the President and the House, I think, will show whether or not we have the fortitude to veer from the easy path of destruction to the difficult path of common sense and prosperity. The first choice is the option that has never lost; merely keep people happy in the short term by...
