Phone points illegal border crossers to water

SAN DIEGO (AP) - A group of California artists wants Mexicans and Central Americans to have more than just a few cans of tuna and a jug of water for their illegal trek through the harsh desert into the U.S.

Faculty at University of California, San Diego are developing a GPS-enabled cell phone that tells dehydrated migrants where to find water and pipes in poetry from phone speakers, regaling them on their journey much like Emma Lazarus' words did a century ago to the "huddled masses yearning to breathe free" on Ellis Island.

The Transborder Immigrant Tool is part technology endeavor, part art project. It introduces a high-tech twist to an old debate about how far activists can go to prevent migrants from dying on the border without breaking the law.

The software is being designed to direct migrants to water stations but Cardenas said they may add other "safety markers," like roads, towns and Border Patrol lookouts.

The group has published verses to be played on the phone's "Global Poetic System."

One poem reads, "May your tracks cut the shortest distance between points A and B."

How about this poem instead, "May your ass acquire a friggen visa. Till then, stay the hell home".

This is Interesting.........
Interesting not like, hmmmm. More like, "Oh shit'.

Al Qaeda Leaders Behind Christmas Day Attack Were Released from Guantanamo Bay in 2007

Two of the four leaders allegedly behind the al Qaeda plot to blow up a Northwest Airlines passenger jet over Detroit were released by the U.S. from the Guantanamo prison in November, 2007, according to American officials and Department of Defense documents. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the Northwest bombing in a Monday statement that vowed more attacks on Americans.

American officials agreed to send the two terrorists from Guantanamo to Saudi Arabia where they entered into an "art therapy rehabilitation program" and were set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials.

Art Therapy didn't work? I'll be damned.

Seemed like a great idea at the time I'll bet.

Christmas Mail From My Senator......

I was checking the email a little while ago and Indiana Senator, Evan Bayh had sent me mail about how proud he was to have voted yes on the Christmas Eve Healthcare Shit Sandwich Bill.

I had to reply.

Here's what I sent him.....

Dear Senator Bayh,
Thank you for this email.
Had you been answering the phones at ANY of your offices in the last 3 weeks when I tried to contact you or your staff, you'd have known that I was and still am adamantly opposed to this abortion of a bill.

I'm glad that you are proud to have voted "Yes".
You now own a piece of this crap and can be held accountable for that.

Be proud of pushing through this legislation in the middle of the night and forcing all citizens, through threat of government force, to purchase a, now inferior and more expensive product.

You may be proud of forcing me to pay for abortions, but I'm not at all happy about that.

You may be proud of helping the government in a fascist takeover of another huge piece of our national economy, but I'm not happy about that either.

Did you even read the bill prior to voting? Did you go through all 2500+ pages?
Don't bother answering that question. I already know the answer.

There is no way on Gods green earth that this spectacular crap sandwich will lower the cost of care and expenditures and it certainly won't lead to better care for the general public.

Oh, and that part where no one may make future changes in the bill? Beautiful.
I'm so looking forward to those death panels "recommending" what kind of care we receive and just who will be able to get it.

There were a lot of things that could have been done to improve care and help reduce costs, but nothing in this bill will do either.

There was no crisis in health care.

There was no reason this had to be forced down our throats like this in the middle of the night.

Go ahead and be proud of that vote and enjoy it now.

There was an overwhelming percentage of citizens who did not want this.
But you and your cohorts felt obligated to foist this on us anyway.

So much for a representative republic.

That it took massive bribery of at least 13 senators by Harry Reid to get the necessary votes shows 3 things.

1. The bill must not have been that good to begin with.

2. Senators are whores. Just not cheap whores.

3. You are a true believer in socialism and were to stupid to hold out for a sweetheart deal.

So thanks a lot, Senator for this spectacular shit sandwich of a bill and that demonstration of political power mongering.

And don't think we haven't noticed that you are exempt from this legislation.

In closing, I'd just like to thank you again for taking ownership of this.

You stupid son of a bitch.

(I put my real name on the reply)

I did forget the wish him a Merry Christmas. My bad.

Tuesday Afternoon Motorcycle Ride......

Put the bodywork back on the Concours and took her into town to top off the tank (So I can add some gas stabilizer) and get it good and warmed up for an oil change after I got back.

Kinda nippy out. Around 40 degrees. I'm really gonna have to install those grip heaters I bought, what was it, 3 years ago?

Something like that. I don't know why I keep putting it off but I do.

Well, the good news is she's all tightened up for the Winter now and I can start tucking away some cash for a new rear tire.

It needs one bad. Gonna have to get ready for Spring and regular riding again.
I didn't ride much this year. Had a lot of things going on, but that's not really much of an excuse.

Just didn't. Not really sure why either.

I plan on correcting that come Spring.

Something to Lighten My Mood.......

The black mood I've been under all day has needed something to relieve it.

This work for you?

I can look up on the wall above the computer here and see the autographed picture of Roy I have on the wall here. Long story of where and how I got it, but I'm not gonna tell it to ya even if the statute of limitations has run out.

Was lucky enough to see him 3-4 times and he may have been the best guitarist I ever had the pleasure to watch.
Howz-a-bout one more?

I last saw him in a small club in San Antonio during the Fall of 1986 during AIT while in the Army. Some young kid from Pittsburgh and I snuck out and took a cab downtown to see him. Cost us $20 bucks to get back into the barracks with out getting in trouble, but it was money well spent.

Christmas Wishes From Washington.....

"Bend over, Bitches. Got something for ya here."

My mood today has been bouncing back and forth between depression and homicidal rage like a ping pong match.

Like my old man used to say, "Don't know whether to shit or go blind".
The sunzabitches in the senate made it over the 1st and most important hurdle in cramming a health care takeover up the collective ass of We the People early this morning.

I got home from work last night and stayed up to follow the voting. Yes, I started drinking as soon as I walked in the door. You can't watch that kind of shit without alcohol.

It's obvious that the majority of the US citizens do not want this shit.

But there they were in the middle of the night, voting on a bill that will fundamentally change this country. And one that almost no one has even seen!

"Most transparent administration ever." - Kiss my skinny white ass you bastards.

Senator Evan Bayh hasn't answered a phone at any of his offices in Indiana or Washington DC for at least the last 3 weeks.
Representative? Not hardly. If they are just gonna do whatever the hell they want, who needs to hear from the peasants?

I better insert a disclaimer in here now- I'm asking questions and making guesses about what we may see in the future in response to this.
I don't endorse, advise or advocate anyone to do anything.

Got it? This is just supposition and thinking. That's it. Don't start anything stupid.

OK. Now that we got that out of the way.....

When are these people gonna be made to realize that there are consequences for treason of this nature?

Yes, treason.
There isn't a whole lot that these guys haven't taken over in the last year and there isn't anything that you can control people with better than gaming their access to healthcare.
The majority of citizens have consistently been against all of this but it doesn't seem to matter to the whitehouse, congress or senate.

I just don't see this ending well. I may get all loud and talk a lot of shit about this stuff, but folks like me do just that. Get loud and talk a lot of shit.

It's the quiet ones these guys better worry about.

Between my active duty and reserve time I spent 10 years in the Army. When I was in Germany, I could have walked across the border & defected to the DDR if I'd have wanted to live in a, Socialist Workers Paradise.

I'm just one of millions who have spent time keeping our country safe from Commie MoFos who never expected to see them emerge right here at home.
My guess is that there are some who are just not gonna be content to bend over and take this latest affront.

Last night 60 senators made this personal. And if this gets pushed through as planned, on Christmas Eve?

I'm seeing someone making it way more personal for a few of those senators and congressmen who pushed this crap through in ways they never imagined.

They don't answer the phones. They don't return letters or email.
They just don't seem to care.

So why should we?

Nope. I just don't see this turning out well. The persecution of the 3 Navy Seals, the intelligence agencies, leaving our troops hanging for months while deciding whether to support them or not & on and on.

Did you forget how the Obama administration wanted wounded Veterans care be covered by billing their private insurers?

Believe me, Vets haven't.

You may have read this before. It's part of an old piece of paper some dead white guys wrote a long time ago.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Here's something another old dead guy had to say about things like this -

“Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience.” ~ John Locke

I'm thinking that some folks ought to start thinking about these sort of things.

Oh hell. Can't keep track of all of the Obama screwups.

Looks like this out in the garage today.
Here's DogBoys 1978 650cc he bought this fall. It's got a few electrical issues that are getting sorted right now.

Nice little bike. Just needs a little TLC to get up to speed.

Here's the Connie with most of the bodywork off.

Looks like the little tighten up I did on the radiator yesterday worked.

That certainly makes YerUnk happy. Getting into that hose is a major pain in the ass & I wasn't looking forward to digging into that again.

I keep the radio on when I'm farting around out there and every news break keeps going on about the Copenhagen climate meetings.

Doesn't sound like much is really getting accomplished there and for that we should all be glad.

Obama is having more Nuke Weapons reductions talks going too. This scares me. The Russians are gonna play this rookie like a fiddle again and that can't be good.

Sad part is, I know that the Russians are a bunch of cut throat bastards and not to be trusted to give a sucker an even break.

I don't know if Obama knows or cares about that.

Expect the Ruskies to make themselves a good deal and for Obama to sell us short.

Like in everything else he does.

This silly bastard couldn't get much more lame. I hope.

Concours Maintenance Day......

Been having a few minor things with the Connie that needed fixing so today I got my lazy ass out into the garage and got after it.

The dimmer switch for the headlight crapped out awhile back and I got one on Ebay for less than 6 bucks. pretty easy fix.

The front brake switch hasn't worked in a couple of years, but I figured since I was gonna be fooling with things electrical I ordered on a week or 2 ago and was swapping it out when I dropped the tiny ass mounting screw.

Gone. Could not find it. Do not have a 4mm screw like that anywhere.

Had to drive up to the Kawasaki dealer and get one. The good news? The mechanic just gave me one so they didn't charge me the $45 dollars or some crap that everything seems to cost when you go to the dealer.

Must be the Christmas Season.

Got it fixed though.
I've had a small leak of antifreeze somewhere and found that (while looking for that damn screw) too.
I think it was just a loose hose clamp from when I changed hoses after The Big Blowout!

I hope that's all it is because it's a major pain in the ass to get into it if not.

I'll take it around the block tomorrow (4 miles) and see if it still leaks.
Here's hoping.

Pretty good day though and you can't complain about that.

Vampires You Say?????

Miss Tam brought this to my attention today.

Self-proclaimed vampire leader pleads guilty to threatening judge

"Indianapolis - Prosecutors say it's a case they've never seen before, involving a self-proclaimed vampire who made threats of violence.

A 45-year-old Indianapolis man will spend more than two years in jail for threatening to torture and kill a judge. He told prosecutors he's exempt from traditional laws. Instead, he follows vampire law..."

"Mr. Flash believes that he is the leader of the Vampyre Nation and there are a group of individuals that believe they're vampires here in the United States and he is their leader," said Massillamany."

He calls himself, "Rocky Flash". That's funny.

I thought Vampires were supposed to be all sexy and shit?

Rocky is rating a major fail on that.

Not that I give a shit.

As Tam notes he's probably lucky he's not in the, "Rubber Ramada".

He's just part of that "Change" you assholes voted for I guess.

Uninvited Guests.......
Here's a beautiful response to all the hub bub about the party crashers at the White House recently.

From a Las Vegas Newspaper.

To the editor:

I don't understand why the White House is so upset about the two party crashers at Barack Obama's steak dinner the other night.

Is it really appropriate and politically correct to call
them party crashers just because they trespassed on
Mr. Obama?

Does that make them criminals? Isn't that discrimination?

Shouldn't they be rewarded for such bold and brave behavior? Maybe they were just trying to feed their family?

I would suggest that it's more appropriate to call them "undocumented guests."

Just because they weren't officially invited doesn't
mean they should be treated like criminals.

Maybe they should get free health care, free housing, free
legal services and free White House green cards so next time they can enter legally.

And they should be able to bring all of their relatives and family members, too.

How can Mr. Obama be mad at them just because they crossed over some arbitrary man-made border?

They were there only to do the things that regularly invited guests didn't want to do.

(Like hang out with Joe Biden.)

How can the White House punish these poor oppressed undocumented visitors?

Brian K. Shoemake


The funny thing is, the incident above was the SECOND time this has happened.
We're just now hearing about These Folks from Georgia.

The improbable adventure of Harvey and Paula Darden, Obama supporters from Hogansville, Ga., took place on Veterans Day, two weeks before Virginia socialites Tareq and Michaele Salahi infamously crashed the Obamas' state dinner for the prime minister of India.

The Dardens mistakenly showed up a day early for a tour scheduled through their congressman.

The White House and Secret Service both said the Dardens went through the appropriate security screenings and were allowed into the breakfast as a courtesy because there were no public tours the day they arrived.

That explanation was news to Harvey Darden, 67, a retired pharmacist, who said he and his wife never were told about the breakfast. They thought they were simply starting their tour until they were ushered into the East Room, offered a buffet spread and told they'd be meeting the president.

"The further we got into the White House, the more surprised we were," Darden told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. "My wife looked at me and I looked at her, and I said, 'You know, I don't know if we're in the right place.......'"

This would be hilarious ........... except the same people who can't even run their own house professionally, want to stick their noses into every aspect of your life!

I'm really starting to hate this shit.

From That Place Where Great Briton......
Used to be.
Comes this.

"A millionaire businessman who fought back against a knife-wielding burglar was jailed for two-and-a-half years yesterday. But his attacker has been spared prison.

Munir Hussain, 53, and his family were tied up and told to lie on the floor by career criminal Waled Salem, who burst into his home with two other masked men.

Mr Hussain escaped and attacked Salem with a metal pole and a cricket bat. But yesterday it was the businessman who was starting a prison sentence for his 'very violent revenge'.

I really find it hard to believe that these people actually ruled a shit load of the world at one time.

"Jailing him, Judge John Reddihough said some members of the public would think that 56-year-old Salem 'deserved what happened to him' and that Mr Hussain 'should not have been prosecuted'.
But had he spared Mr Hussain jail, the judge said, the 'rule of law' would collapse.

He said: 'If persons were permitted to take the law into their own hands and inflict their own instant and violent punishment on an apprehended offender rather than letting the criminal justice system take its course, then the rule of law and our system of criminal justice, which are hallmarks of a civilised society, would collapse.'"

Oh, spare me the bullshit. This judge needs to be taken out and have a cricket bat taken to his nutsack.

This is the same squishy assed crap that progressive types would like to see here in this country.

They should be giving the guy a friggin award for outstanding civic duty.

Sheriff Holley Was Right.......
It seems that the Wooden Gun used by John Dillinger to escape from the Lake County Jail was auctioned off recently for $19,120.

Damn. Hope they enjoy it.

Here's a picture of what was auctioned off.

When I was a kid I worked at a Texaco station in Crown Point, Indiana. That's the county seat and the site of the Lake County Jail from which Dillinger made his famous escape.

Lillian Holley was the Sheriff at the time of the escape. Here she is in a picture with Dillinger.

Miss Holley, was still alive back when I was a kid pumping gas and she drove a Buick (if memory serves me correctly) and filled it up at the Texaco station where I worked.

I had no clue who she was. One of the older guys told me the story of how she had been the Sheriff when John Dillinger escaped & I thought that was pretty cool.
She was just a nice old lady as far as I knew and I did the usual, fill 'er up, wash the windows, check the oil and ask her if she "Saved Stamps like all the other old women who came in.

I'd been putting gas in her car for a couple of years and talked to her every time I'd filled her up, so I wasn't shy about asking her about the Dillinger story.

She told me that the whole "Wooden gun. Bar of Soap Gun, etc" was bullshit. (Not her words. She was very polite and proper to me.)

Her story was that someone smuggled in a pistol and assisted with the escape.

She also said that "Someday, somebody is gonna make a lot of money selling that wooden gun".

It's been about 40 years since she told me that, but damn if she didn't get it right.

H/T to Say Uncle for the story.

Years later, after they had built a new jail, the old jail downtown was sold to a guy who started development on the buildings and I worked on the crew. I found 2 of these signs tucked in a corner-

I gave the Boss 1 and stashed 1 for myself.

My Bestest Buddy Steve & I worked as laborers when they tore the boilers out of the place. There were 3 big boilers in the boiler house and there was one guy, Big Harry, who was cutting them up with a torch and Steve & I would haul the pieces out and toss 'em in the dumpster.
There's 2 or 3 layers of steel in those boilers and a blanket of asbestos between each one. Remember, this was a long time ago. Nobody wore a mask. There was so much asbestos floating around in the air it looked like we were working in a snow storm. We both coughed & sneezed up big hunks of fibrous shit for weeks. Never thought much about it back then.

Bestest buddy Steve & Big Harry have both died of lung cancer since then.

Coincidence? Damn if I know, but I try not to think about it too much.

The article includes a Wikipedia link that Gives you all the info you need.

It seems that Kevin Jennings has even handed out, "Fisting Kits" to high school kids. You can read about the details of this crap in the article.

There's a boatload of links and info. None of it good.

Where's the outrage? I'm sure not seeing it.

Tiger Fucking Woods was cheating on his wife and she clubbed his ass for it.

You're surprised?

And it's getting 24-7 news coverage for how many days now?

Who the fuck cares? Give me a break.
This whole story shouldn't matter at all to the general public.

If Tiger Woods was paying my salary or my mortgage, then I'd have an interest in this.
But he's just a young guy who makes his living playing a game and endorsing shit you probably don't need anyway.

Stop with the incessant news coverage!!
That's enough.

Gateway Pundit has the story

Scott Baker from and Co-Host of ‘The B-Cast‘ submitted this shocking report today on Obama’s deviant Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings.

—-Warning on Content—–

Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings was the founder, and for many years, Executive Director of an organization called the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). GLSEN started essentially as Jennings’ personal project and grew to become the culmination of his life’s work. And he was chosen by President Obama to be the nation’s Safe Schools Czar primarily because he had founded and led GLSEN (scroll for bio).

GLSEN’s stated mission is to empower gay youth in the schools and to stop harassment by other students. It encourages the formation of Gay Student Alliances and condemns the use of hateful words. GLSEN also strives to influence the educational curriculum to include materials which the group believes will increase tolerance of gay students and decrease bullying. To that end, GLSEN maintains a recommended reading list of books that it claims “furthers our mission to ensure safe schools for all students.” In other words, these are the books that GLSEN’s directors think all kids should be reading: gay kids should read them to raise their self-esteem, and straight kids should read them in order to become more aware and tolerant and stop bullying gay kids. Through GLSEN’s online ordering system, called “GLSEN BookLink,” featured prominently on their Web site, teachers can buy the books to use as required classroom assignments, or students can buy them to read on their own.......

We were unprepared for what we encountered. Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that weren’t merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between pre-schoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, semen flying through the air. One memoir even praised becoming a prostitute as a way to increase one’s self-esteem. Above all, the books seemed to have less to do with promoting tolerance than with an unabashed attempt to indoctrinate students into a hyper-sexualized worldview.

They have scanned pages from some of these books for the doubters.
And this shit is BAD. You have to read it to believe the crap our "Safe Schools Czar" thinks
YOUR KIDS should be reading.

And I have to assume he thinks they should be engaging in this type of sick shit too.

It's to late to get on the phone to anyone now, but damn sure Skippy, I'll be on the phone tomorrow and Monday.

Here's a scan from page 103 of the book, Revolutionary Voices

The caption reads - (An illustration about the change from “boy to man,” showing two Boy Scouts pointing at and looking at two adult men engaging in anal sex.)

That's not correct. That's a Scout and An ADULT Scout Leader in that picture.
That's even worse.

There are 11 books listed there with pages scanned from most of them. Maybe all of them. I couldn't read that shit and quit after the 3rd or 4th one.

Our Fucking President thinks that this Son of a bitch is the Go To Guy for SAFE SCHOOLS?

Jeebus H. Keeryst! How long do we have to put up with this shit and these people?!?

This shit is JUST - FUCKING - WRONG!!!

I am so damn mad I can't see straight right now. The whole bloody lot of them should be strung up.

Rope. Tree. Politician. Some assembly required.

Here's how a real President dealt with Fucks like this-

Friday Afternoon Rambling......

Just another day in paradise as I always say.

It seems the Obama Administration is set to announce that an Official disclosure of extraterrestrial life is imminent.

Now how did I miss this news??? This came out in October.
Well, better late than never I guess.

I gotta go dig out that old "I Want to Believe" T-shirt. One should be properly dressed for some things.

In related news, Roger, of Curmudgeonly and Skeptical provides some anecdotal evidence to this UFO thing. Here it is in it's entirety-

The year is 1947

Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little over 60 years ago, witnesses claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell ,
New Mexico . This is a well known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S. Air Force and other federal agencies and organizations.

However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April 1948, nine months after that historic day, the following people were born:

Albert A. Gore, Jr..
Hillary Rodham
John F. Kerry
William J. Clinton
Howard Dean
Nancy Pelosi
Dianne Feinstein
Charles E.. Schumer
Barbara Boxer

See what happens when aliens breed with sheep and jackasses? I certainly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you. It did for me.

No wonder they support the bill to help illegal aliens!

That kind of logic is hard to argue with.

On the other hand .........
This kind of Bullshit is a bit harder to believe in-

Practice Run??????

Testing the reaction of the TSA? Don't know.

I do know that this version is not what I heard about this last month. It was reported in the news as something completely different. Flight delayed because of a guy who wouldn't get off his cellphone.

Totally different story when you listen to participants.


One week ago, I went to Ohio on business and to see my father. On Tuesday, November the 17th, I returned home. If you read the papers the 18th you may have seen a blurb where a AirTran flight was cancelled from Atlanta to Houston due to a man who refused to get off of his cell phone before takeoff. It was on Fox.

This was NOT what happened.

Read this story and ask yourself what YOU would do in a similar situation.

A separate account of this incident comes from- Senior Chaplain Dr. Keith A. Robinson the Corps Commander for the Houston Regional Community Chaplain’s Corps in Houston, Texas.

Interesting stuff here. A dry run just to see how the TSA would react?
We'll never know, but you gotta wonder what these shitheads were up to.

No way in hell I would have stayed on that flight after they let those assholes back on.

Remember, it's important to consider how you would react to things like this. Doesn't have to be the same scenario, you need to think about weird shit before it happens. It's not like strange, bad shit doesn't happen all the time. Get your mind engaged ahead of time.

Seems Like a Bad Idea......
To be messin' with a guy like this.

Medal of Honor Recipient Ordered to Remove Flagpole

Col. Van T. Barfoot, a local Medal of Honor winner, is under the gun from his Henrico County community's homeowner association.

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch-

In a five-paragraph letter to Barfoot that he received yesterday, Barfoot is being ordered to remove a flagpole from his yard. The decorated veteran of three wars, now 90 years old, raises the American flag every morning on the pole, then lowers and folds the flag at dusk each day in a three-corner military fashion....

In a priority mail letter, the Coates & Davenport law firm in Richmond is ordering Barfoot to remove the pole by 5 p.m. Friday or face "legal action being brought to enforce the Covenants and Restrictions against you."

OK. This guy may be 90 years old, but does it seem like a good idea to f**k with a guy like that? Somehow I gotta wonder how much of a threat, " actions, Blah, Blah, Blah..." would worry a guy with a Medal of Honor citation like this-

"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty on 23 May 1944, near Carano, Italy. With his platoon heavily engaged during an assault against forces well entrenched on commanding ground, 2d Lt. Barfoot (then Tech. Sgt.) moved off alone upon the enemy left flank. He crawled to the proximity of 1 machinegun nest and made a direct hit on it with a hand grenade, killing 2 and wounding 3 Germans. He continued along the German defense line to another machinegun emplacement, and with his tommygun killed 2 and captured 3 soldiers.

Members of another enemy machinegun crew then abandoned their position and gave themselves up to Sgt. Barfoot. Leaving the prisoners for his support squad to pick up, he proceeded to mop up positions in the immediate area, capturing more prisoners and bringing his total count to 17. Later that day, after he had reorganized his men and consolidated the newly captured ground, the enemy launched a fierce armored counterattack directly at his platoon positions. Securing a bazooka, Sgt. Barfoot took up an exposed position directly in front of 3 advancing Mark VI tanks. From a distance of 75 yards his first shot destroyed the track of the leading tank, effectively disabling it, while the other 2 changed direction toward the flank.

As the crew of the disabled tank dismounted, Sgt. Barfoot killed 3 of them with his tommygun. He continued onward into enemy terrain and destroyed a recently abandoned German fieldpiece with a demolition charge placed in the breech. While returning to his platoon position, Sgt. Barfoot, though greatly fatigued by his Herculean efforts, assisted 2 of his seriously wounded men 1,700 yards to a position of safety. Sgt. Barfoot's extraordinary heroism, demonstration of magnificent valor, and aggressive determination in the face of pointblank fire are a perpetual inspiration to his fellow soldiers."

All in a days work for a Hero.

This is a good example of the coddled types in the HOA not recognizing the type of man it takes to earn a Medal Of Honor. They do not just give those things away ya know.

Their horseshit legal actions do present an opportunity for "The law of unintended consequences" to bite them on the asses and it would be nice to see some Swift Western Justice administered to these assholes.

The good Colonel is probably too good a man to present them and their lawyers the response they deserve.

But you never know. Maybe he's got a few "Army Surplus Items" still laying around.

My guess is that this sign would not meet the HOA guidelines either.

Say it Ain't So, Meredith.......

'Family Ties' Mom-Yep, I'm gay
Is there nothing we can count on anymore?
Not that this revelation is any great shakes in the real world, but I have to admit to harboring, as Jimmy Carter said, "Lust in my heart" for Ms Baxter.
No, it's not like I own a copy of this-

Sigh........... Oh well.

Wednesday Morning Scribble......

Seems I missed yesterday. My whole day started off on the wrong foot. I had to go to work for a mandatory annual task at 6:45 in the am.
Of course, my internal clock demanded that I awaken at 4:30. As there was a "Health Fair" associated with this I was forbidden to have coffee prior to arrival ......... and that's just dangerous for me.

And those around me, too. I'm a caffeine junkie and even driving into town without a wake up dose is an endangerment to the public.

After the health fair BS I stuck around and got caught up on some admin tasks I needed to get done.

I came home and continued on the Lumberjack project in the back yard. I did not harm myself with the chainsaw, BTW.

So that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

I gotta playdate with my buddy to go do some guitar pickin'.

I'm looking forward to that.

Lots of stuff going on in the news and I just can't get up any enthusiasm for comment today.
Maybe tonight.
Maybe not.

So, all of you enjoy your day. I'm gonna go f**koff and make some music.
