    Sometimes people ask “what was boot-camp like?” I tell them to watch the first part of “Full Metal Jacket” - that is exactly what it was like, down to the uniforms, squad bay, weapons, etc. I was a football player and had never run 3 miles in my life, and I barely beat the maximum run time on the introductory PFT. I got knocked across the squad bay twice, averaged 3 hours sleep each night during the first two weeks and I lost 30 lbs in 10 weeks. By the end I was a lean mean green (amphibious) fighting machine.

    No, he never got a chance to play with the Jets, Ryan refused to play him, effectively blackballing him. I cannot believe people are still spouting the “he not good enough to play” crap. He was good enough to win at Denver. His style was ugly, but he was a leader/motivator and a fighter! And he was certainly better than Sanchez, McElroy, and a host of other crappy QBs who keep being traded around the league because teams are so desperate to find a backup QB.
    I believe he was blackballed.

    Had Netflix for a LONG time, but just canceled because of Susan Rice. Joined Hulu, but just canceled them today because of them dropping Laura Ingraham.

    Canceled my “membership” in Goodwill after they got rid of “Veteran’s Discount Day” in favor of some other marketing scheme that some liberal snowflake thought up.

  • Obama in Talks to Provide Shows for Netflix

    Below is the email I crafted for my family/friends at 0300 this morning when I couldn’t sleep, checked Drudge and saw the article:

    All,

    It is not often that I send out group emails because we all get too much junk mail every day. And even though I sent it “bcc” please don’t respond as your reaction and response is your business.

    But, we are at war - spiritual warfare, and how each of us wage that war is as individual and personal as how much time we spend reading our Bible and praying each day. I don’t do those things nearly enough so this may be a God provided opportunity to do them more.

    The issue is that Netflix has offered former president Obama a platform to produce “shows.” Please read the article as it explains very clearly the intent of this cooperation. The vast majority of news and social media already has an extremely liberal viewpoint. But, that is not enough for these “progressives.” Social media platforms (including YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.) are so intolerant that they are now openly purging the accounts of so called “extremists” who hold anti-liberal views. These “right wing extremists” include supporters of 2nd Amendment gun rights, anti-abortionists, those who question anthropocentric global warming (now conveniently morphed to “climate change”), and of course those who support the traditional Biblical view of marriage between biological men and women.

    Since there are still too many unbelievers who are not in lockstep with the liberal worldview, Netflix is now going to provide Mr. Obama with a platform to further propagandize the liberal “progressive” message. Dare I say “Satanic” worldview. In the words of the iconic Mark Levin “There, I SAID IT - I said Satanic!”

    So what now? I do watch Netflix quite a bit, they have some good shows and documentaries. How you fight is your own business, but I contacted Netflix and informed them that if they indeed hire Obama to produce content, then I will permanently cancel my membership and encourage my family/friends to do the same.
    Maybe I should have already done this, so I could spend more time reading God’s Word and interceding on your behalf...

    “Processed meat” is loaded with preservatives such as sodium nitrate and sodium nitrite. I believe that these are the primary culprits. I only eat “unprocessed/uncured” meats and mostly organic or non-GMO foods (NO preservatives in anything). My health is much better and the food allergies that I developed in my 40s are greatly diminished.

  • Man Relieved His Postoperative Pain by Swimming In Cold Water

    pajama pundit to Armen Hareyan

    I’ve had both shoulders surgically repaired which requires a very painful 3-4 month rehab to get to about 80% functional, and another 6-9 months for 95%. I also have a bad back and neck from football days.

    Crushed ice in a quart freezer zip lock bag is the best pain reliever. Placed on top of a washcloth and wrapped with ace wrap - it’s better than the pain pills. Supposed to only leave it on for 20 minutes, but screw that. I just add another layer of washcloth and leave it all night. The crushed ice lasts 6-8 hours vs. those gel cold packs which only last about 20 min.

    Thumbs up on the “Jesse Stone” series. Wife unit and I rarely watch the same shows anymore (College football/Terminator/Walking Dead vs. “Hallmark/Downton Abby, Blue Bloods), but we both really enjoyed Tom Selleck as Jesse Stone.

    *** Speaking of reloads. In my early days of shooting the Colt .45 my wife was at the range with me and a friend who was teaching me about reloading. We were shooting target reloads that my friend had made. My wife wanted to try so after going through the basics and watching her shoot a couple of mags (all in the black), we set her up in the lane next to me. We had had a few stovepipes so I was watching to help out with any problems she might have. On one trigger pull I heard a slight “pop” and the action didn’t cycle. Thank God it wasn’t a stovepipe or I might have cycled the action and let her fire another round. But, my (Marine Corps) training took over and I told her to hand the pistol to me. After breaking it down, sure enough there was a bullet lodged in the barrel. My friend had changed the primer, but missed the powder in that bullet. It made me a better reloader as I always double check my powder loads before adding the bullet.

    Agree - Samaritan’s Purse. I also give to them through “Amazon Smile.” I worked with Samaritan’s Purse and Baptist Haiti Mission in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. Not only did they provide food, shelter and services, but we also went to shelters several nights a week to give a gospel presentation.

  • Anyone seen Dunkirk yet? Does it live up to the hype?

    08/04/2017 6:37:20 PM PDT · 94 of 126
    pajama pundit to All

    Repost of mine from a thread last week:

    For the amount of money spent I thought it was a shame that Nolan didn’t do a better job. I appreciate the importance of Dunkirk and there are some good scenes, but overall this movie is bad.

    1. Super Loud. Thankfully I had read a review before I went recommending earplugs so I took some. I heard all of the dialog just fine - it was that loud. Much of the “music” didn’t fit with the scenes, and during some of the “non action” scenes there was super loud background noise that was not linked to anything (such as combat, boat motor, etc.) just this meaningless body jarring booming noise.

    2. Sorry, but the three plot thing just didn’t work and the acting was deadpan horrible. I don’t know much about movie editing, but I believe that I could do a better job of making the movie flow better and making more efficient use of the hour and a half.

    3. Technical. Where to begin. The movie industry must take us for total buffoons, and maybe most of “us” are. The so called air combat scenes were a joke. The fighters never did more than some lazy “S” turns. No hard G turns, pitch ups, split S, etc. Go watch some gun camera footage on youtube to get an idea of real ACM. After the spitfire ditching scene I could hardly stay for the rest of the movie. The whole drama of the sinking aircraft with the pilot stuck with a closed canopy went on and on and on. Sink and drown or get rescued already. Besides, the entire premise of that scene was bogus. Look at any photo of WWII type aircraft landing on carriers and the canopy will be OPEN. One of the first things you learn in prop aircraft (and some early jets without canopy jettison systems) was when taking off/landing on a carrier or when ditching is to have the CANOPY OPEN for the very reason that it might jam.
    In another situation about 10 soldiers were hiding on the fishing boat waiting for the tide to come in and the Germans were taking pot shots at it. As the tide came in and water started coming in through the bullet holes, when there was several hundred gallons of water sloshing around, one of the soldiers said “one of us has to get off” so that the boat can float. I laughed out loud. This created the whole drama scene where the French soldier posing as a Brit was found out. A gallon of water weighs 8.5 lbs so even 200 hundred gallons would be 1,700 lbs, so one man at 150 lbs would be meaningless.

    Kaslin: You do post some interesting stuff here on good old FR and you may have outdone yourself with this one.

    But be forwarned: You are asking the Freepers to actually read a full article and, at least mentally, sign up to read another tomorrow with perhaps more to follow.

    “That’s a bit step for most Freepers. Good luck with your project.”
