    ALSO HEARD TODAY, that ‘they’ are trying to pass a bill allowing Reps to NOT VOTE ON ANYTHING SUCH AS TAX HIKES, GASOLINE HIKES etc just prior to an election.
    So, with the Congresspeople doing NOTHING in their FIRST YEAR because they are NEW AND GETTING USED TO THE PLACE, now they will be able to DO NOTHING THE SECOND YEAR
    because they can’t be forced to ‘go one way or the other’ prior to elections.

    Why don’t we just save a couple of trillion bucks, FIRE ALL CONGRESSCRITTERS and SENATORS (not the base ball kind) and turn all those buildings into ‘housing for chilluns who
    have crossed the desert on their own’?

    Then we can build that fence around DC (SF East?) with all the bleeding hearts and Libs along with the illegals to live happily ever after.

    Don’t you get the feeling anymore that whenever you look at an article or hear one of these ‘brainiac Libs babble’ that you must look around to see if Alan Funt is in the area with his hand held camera and mike?

    Actually, the more outlandish something, the more it will turn out to be true.

    This is basically the way the Al Sharpton got his start.

    When she gets 'smart enough' to know who to 'praise' and who to 'damn', she will 'be something'.

    Assuming she had been offered an education - FREE of charge - and apparently none of it 'took (thanks G. Costanza)' now in less than a year she made up ALL the work she missed in her previous 15-18 years (counting pre school OR as we used to call it 'The time your parents 'prepared' you for life'.

    As a great example of her 'book learning' she accused CNN of 'not being a man'?

    "To me, you’re not a man," she told CNN.

    NOW that sort of terminology etc is something I had never learned.....

    Well considering he either had a bank of teleprompters and fingers on the mike switch and/or an earset to ‘remind’ him what to say and when to say it.

    The first time he ‘winged’ it - it was a disaster.

    Wasn’t there a long time with NO press conferences or if there were to be one, there was no Q & A period.

    This guy’s public speaking is like a ‘teen ager’ being ‘grilled’ by his parents.

    What did you do after school?
    Hung around.

    GEEZ what is with the 3rd degree....I am going to my room.

    (with the only reason he wasn’t in his ‘room’ was he was raiding the refrigerator so he wouldn’t have to ‘eat with you people)

    It is time for a ‘Face in the Crowd’ Moment and someone needs to leave his Mike open..

    Got to give him credit, he smoozes lunch with a 30K crowd then addresses the peasants at a theater in the PM - complaining about the people who can afford the 30K”

    AND ‘they’ cheer and he just piles it on.

    People talk about his degrees — I do know he has a PHD

    However, upon doing a ‘fact check’ I stumbled on the fact that the ‘LGTMELFKILLSMFTT’ Community has also ‘hijacked’ the word ‘licorice stick’.

    Their new meaning has to do with a body part of an AA male that is central to the G part of the ‘group’.

    I’ve heard Orientals use the word Oriental
    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
    It is okay as long as it is used as ‘banter’ amongst Orientals.

    However, if the NFL (after receiving a complaint from an Oriental that Occidentals were using the term derogatorily), banned the use of the word in and around any NFL Facility.

    Which prompted the aforementioned Orientals to sue, saying THEY were being discriminated against using a word comfortable to them and the NFL banning it meant the Orientals were being ‘victimized’.

    I seem to remember Sister Mary ______ telling us that the term Oriental was pertaining to the East (Asia) and Occidental was pertaining to the West (all NOT Asia I guess).

    Of course She also told us Hawaii and Alaska were territories and an area in SE Asia was known as Burma and Indochina and, at the time French Indochina was in the news.

    Couple of ‘glaring’ idiotic statements.
    Danger of obesity while not in school.
    The meals will be provided until Aug 1.

    Now isn’t (at least it was) the summertime that us kids used to spend most every waking hour OUTSIDE amusing ourselves and playing ball till we got tired?
    MAYBE get ‘forced’ to eat when called in just before dark.
    That life style was surely a cure for obesity - especially in the day before couch potatoes were ‘invented’ and there wasn’t not only a TV in every room, there definitely was nothing more to stay inside for....HELL, your mother may put you to (more) work were you to stay inside and get under her ‘feet’.

    Also, since school starts Sept 1, what are they supposed to do for the month of Aug?

    Guess they have to stop the handouts because the distributors of the handouts need a paid vacation??

    Even in Culpeper VA, I go by a ‘crew’ in a car with ‘shade umbrellas’ set up with a sign stating “Free Food” with some more on the sign... Even though I go through this ‘makeshift distribution center’ twice a week I normally don’t feel it wise to ‘STOP’ long enough to read what the sign says...And that is at 10AM.. It is on the lawn by the street, outside an ‘apartment complex’ and surrounded by single family homes.
    The entire neighborhood is well kept even though the ‘complexion’ is dark and darker - what I mean is - I wouldn’t have a whole lot of trouble etc driving through there at night — IF I absolutely had to.
    Not ‘afraid’ etc just concerned if anyone were to ask what I am doing may escalate to me having to .....etc....etc...

    I was in Hawaii in 1957 and Japan in 1957.

    If I were a LIB, I could get away with saying I was in Japan and Hawaii where an attack took place and the ASSUMPTION being I was there for the ‘action’, if one wants to think that way you ignore the facts, if one ‘questions’ your words you just scoff and say you were taken out of context.

    NEVER NEVER NEVER even hint at the fact that IN FACT, you were NOT in Hawaii or Japan in 1941 or 1945.

    Didn’t Newt G ‘out’ ‘Fort Worthless’ Jim Wright on the ‘book deal’ and the people that were ‘invited’ to $1000 breakfast meetings with the ‘book’ being a bonus.

    Those ‘HASP Plicks’ were more dangerous than the HUKs in the Philippines and any of the waterfront bars in Keelung etc...

    Our showers and laundry room waste would run through a culvert and we would see the Philippinos using it to wash their clothes.

    Went ‘up the river’ into Bangkok in 1959 on an APA (Troop Transport) and we were churning mud all the way.
    On either shore, the natives were bathing, washing clothes, dipping water, animals and humans were discharging waste-it really didn’t matter what order the people were lined up, but the water seemed so brackish it probably didn’t flow fast enough to ‘hurt’ anyone —and life went on.....
    Went back up again in 1961 on an LST (Flat bottom ship) and not churning mud as bad but the life on the river bank was the same...

    Spent more time that I liked in Olongapo PI. Interesting times

    When people say ‘I would NEVER eat that’, I kind of remind them of eating the ‘goodies on the stick’ in Olongapo and other ‘exotic’ Navy towns of the Far East.

    Think the story on ‘Mary Hsu’ in Hong Kong was she would paint the USN ships in the harbor for their garbage then separate it and sell it to the Restaurants as ‘fresh produce’.

    Didn’t really bother with us ‘Normal’ Enlisted types, most wouldn’t waste the time or money to eat in any fancy Restaurant in Hong Kong, too many ‘dives’ to drink at.

    Yes, the late 50’s early 60’s and beyond were some interesting times especially for the ‘Westpac Warriors’.

    Surprised there aren’t enough members of the ‘Association’ that are willing to oust the present board.

    Only problem with that is when the new ‘board’ takes over, the thrust of POWER in the hands of one who has never led anyone or anthing before, turns them into Tin Despots.

    Why don’t we just take them to the embassy or consulate or whatever the representative PRIVATE PROPERTY in the US for the country involved calls itself the ‘Sovereign Territory’.

    Couple busloads of lice ridden, starving, dirty, smelly kids ought to make the day at the ‘Official Residence’ for the country who the ‘illegals’ belong to.

    I am sure the Consulate General will change the ‘peasants’ diapers just like the Border Patrol Agents were doing.

    = = = = = = = = = = = = =
    “numbers” wise - Yes....

    However the Libertarians said this guy was a phony from the gitgo.
    RINO’s didn’t support C, RNC went on Chris Plante and ‘claimed’ the RNC Money was better spent in NJ as they had pumped enough into the VA campaign.
    Plante called the guy out on it but not really harsh enough to his ‘face’

    I am a ‘firm believer’ that money should not be able to be donated to a candidate unless the donee can actually vote in the election.

    The GOV of NJ or the Mayor of NY has absolutely NO business campaigning for the GOV of VA or CA....
    In reality, he is ‘wasting’ his time and his constituents money but it all ties together in the long run.

    Like ‘we’ used to say kind of foolish for someone to spend 5 mil running for a job that pays 150 a year for a couple of years - UNLESS there is a big payday involved.

    I don’t want to tell others they cannot open carry. But I agree with you. It tells the bad guy “shoot me first”.
    = = = = = = = = = = =
    Agree, ‘open carry’ is not for me.

    In your scenario, it is akin to the Govt sending National Guard Troops into Airports with unarmed weapons in the name of ‘Security’.

    Common sense tells me (especially if I were one of the ‘bad guys’) that if you can get the drop on the guy with the rifle, you can basically control the situation. That his clip is in his jacket is just a bonus SO, it is somewhat of a ‘suicide mission’ if the Troop is there to deter any hijackers or such.

    Interesting picture.
    I realize that as a 3 Star she has plenty of subordinates to do the ‘heavy lifting’ BUT take away the newspaper and ‘awards’ and her ‘work area’ looks very similar to BO’s.

    Maybe she is Qualified. Maybe she is Over-Qualified, but we see 2 things that make her ‘newish’ if she is the tri-fecta, we have reached a new low.

    I have already told my daughter that she can depend on me to do absolutely NOTHING to encourage her sons to join the Military, I am not yet to the point of discouraging them but on a daily basis I am getting closer to realizing why some people during ‘my era’ (Vietnam) were sending their sons to Canada or at least discouraging them from joining, but with the Draft they had to take ‘other’ actions.
    I am sure the Fathers and Grandfathers of the time had reasons (at least in their minds) to not want their kin to go to SE Asia but I definitely don’t want anyone ‘associated’ with me being stuck in a hell hole like we keep getting ourselves involved in.

    I never thought I would feel this way.
    Of course when my Grandfather retired after 50(or so) years of carrying mail, - He, being a ‘good Irish Catholic’ in upstate NY, of the D persuasion, REFUSED to accept his certificate signed by Ike - I couldn’t understand it.

    Funny, I have the exact same thought when having to accept anything from WJC or BO......

    Now, even though I had 2 Uncles, 5 Aunts and 3 older cousins, I was the first R in the family and probably one of the VERY FEW Irish Catholics that had no use for the Politician, JFK and I was the wisened age of 21 for his first election.
