    And now for a little badly needed sanity in our lives... Some of you probably saw my previous American muscle car, customs, and classic, car threads. Included here are some models I didn't manage to get to on those threads. Namely, GTOs, Mustangs, 442s, Novas and Vettes, plus a few other misc. Sorry, only a few of the pics are labeled. A handful are illustrations or plastic scaled models. See if you can spot which. There are over 100 posted photos here. I'm on my way out the door now, so won't be around to reply. Hope you enjoy the...

    U.S. Sen. John McCain is running a “sponsored post” on Facebook with the intention of building support for a potential re-election campaign. While the intended audience is unclear, the paid post is boomeranging big time. “If I decide to stand for re-election to the United States Senate, I will give it everything I’ve got — and your continued support means a great deal to me. Please stand with me today,” the senator’s Facebook post reads.

    September 10, 2013 HERE THEY COME: Video of 2 Million Bikers group on their way to DC Right Scoop I’m not sure exactly where this is at but clearly DC is in for some fun. And I love how the trooper salutes them with his horns and siren as they ride by. Watch: VIDEO(I'm pretty sure that's a Virginia State Trooper flashing his lights and siren so this is either I-95 or I-64, I guess)

  • Group Plans to Confront Sheehan

    A grassroots pro-military group is organizing a counter to the efforts of Cindy Sheehan, the polarizing icon of the anti-war movement whose son, Casey, was killed in Iraq. The group, "American Pride," is led by Leonard Wahl, who also lost a son in the war. American Pride is petitioning people to come to Crawford, Texas between August 14 and 22 -- part of a period when Sheehan and her followers are expected to launch "Camp Casey III." Crawford, the home of President Bush's ranch, was the site of a stalemate of sorts last August when Sheehan declared she wasn't leaving...

Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md., the resolution would prohibit those groups from preventing residents from displaying an American flag on their own property. It was passed unanimously by both the House and the Senate.

    The war in Iraq hit home hard for a band of Long Island buddies last week when a sniper's bullet took one of their own - city cop and Army Reserves Staff Sgt. James McNaughton. The guys shared their memories of "Jimmy" with fondness, sadness, some laughter and much pride. They called the 27-year-old, who died Tuesday, tough and scrappy, a stalwart friend, a patriot, a leader, a family man - and a mean poker player. "Yeah, and don't forget he was a b---buster," added Shawn Donnelly, 26, who grew up with McNaughton in Centereach, L.I. "He just loved to...

    The average age of the Infantryman is 19 years. He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country. He never really cared much for work and he would rather wax his own car than wash his father's; but he has never collected unemployment either. He's a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student, pursued some form of sport activities, drives a ten year old jalopy,...

    No matter what your views on President Bush's statement of upcoming war, this, from an English journalist, is very interesting. Just a word of background for those of you who aren't familiar with the UK's Daily Mirror. This is a notoriously left-wing daily that is normally not supportive of the Colonials across the Atlantic.
