Earthquake McGoon


The bearded and barrel-chested EARTHQUAKE McGOON billed himself as "the world's dirtiest wrassler." He first appeared in "Li'l Abner" as a traveling exhibition wrestler in the late '30s and became increasingly prominent when early television gave exposure to gimmicky wrestlers such as Gorgeous George and greatly enhanced the popularity of professional wrestling. McGoon is one of the very few secondary characters to make an appearance in both the 1940 Li'l Abner movie and the 1950's Broadway musical. In the latter (minus the beard) he comes close to marrying Daisy Mae.

Veterans for Constitution Restoration is a non-profit, non-partisan educational and grassroots activist organization. The primary area of concern to all VetsCoR members is that our national and local educational systems fall short in teaching students and all American citizens the history and underlying principles on which our Constitutional republic-based system of self-government was founded. VetsCoR members are also very concerned that the Federal government long ago over-stepped its limited authority as clearly specified in the United States Constitution, as well as the Founding Fathers' supporting letters, essays, and other public documents.

Actively seeking volunteers to provide this valuable service to Veterans and their families.

We here at Blue Stars For A Safe Return are working hard to honor all of our military, past and present, and their families. Inlcuding the veterans, and POW/MIA's. I feel that not enough is done to recognize the past efforts of the veterans, and remember those who have never been found.

I realized that our Veterans have no "official" seal, so we created one as part of that recognition. To see what it looks like and the Star that we have dedicated to you, the Veteran, please check out our site.

Dien Bien Phu ~ Journal of the Air Force Magazine Online

Truman and his pinkos let Chiang Kai Shek be beaten by Maouse Dung.

What a sad thing was Dien Bien Phu.

I saw a late 'fifties black and white commercial film of the Viet Minh overrunning the brave fighters despite daring air drops.

And cried.

Much much later I saw a brief Communist propaganda short with reenactment of Viet Minh hauling artillery up the mountainous jungles.

Four rope lines with sweaty gooks, led by six swashbuckling machete maniacs. Without sound but you can hear those anthems.

Later Dulles as head of CIA would again use U.S. aircraft leant to another deniable operation--only to be undercut by JFK's intestinal weakness.

An excellent case can still be made for E. Howard Hunt as the short tramp in Dallas November 22, 1963.

It is now reported that Porter Goss's deputies are discreetly concerned that al Qaeda is coming from Mexico for the next attraction.

We are assured by the powers that be that such dangers are "impossible", that "everything is fine", that we should "go back to sleep".
