  • Some thoughts upon watching a film from 1939 ("Five Came Back")

    8) Landing a plane in the middle of the jungle. On one engine. In a storm. At night. No problem.
    = = = = = = = = = = = =
    Had to us ‘poetic license’ to follow the script...

    Use to ‘love’ the Old Westerns where the ‘White Hat’ would be galloping full throttle through the ravine while 30 ‘Black Hats’ were lining the ridges with their rifles and they couldn’t come close while he was picking them off with his six shooter from a speeding horse and while doing ‘tricks’ in the saddle....

    I remember when smoking section on the plane was ‘floatable’

    they would move a sign- as appropriate - on the back of the seat as needed.. I believe they then went to a curtain....

    And the people that complained were looked down upon...

    Great ‘excuse’ was if one couldn’t smoke he may ‘lose it’ while the plane in flight....

    That is one ‘fight’ the minority won...

    They were probably the majority as smokers usually didn’t ‘hang out’ with nonsmokers as they couldn’t ‘stand us’....

    If someone was ‘bothering’ you all you had to do was light up and they would leave you alone...

    Ah, the good old days....HA HA

    ‘Stupid’ is pardoning a turkey.

    She is 22. Let her live!

    Not quite like it is a State Funeral or signing a bill outlawing Nuclear Weapons.

    Going to start calling the press NERO!

    They fiddle while the world is burning around them.

    At first I put the young lady that ‘blew the whistle’ on Franken as probably having waited to long but at least she had the common sense to save the photos...Linda Tripp must have ‘trained’ her as I still believe that without the dress, Monica L would have made another area of DC famous for a corpse turning up.

    However, I changed my mind about her when noticing that FRANKEN had been a lead cheerleader about ‘morality’, sexual responsibility and good actions in life.

    Also with Franken his were about 10 years ago and the ‘excuse’ was made that was before he was a Senator and he was ‘younger’.

    Shame that Moore wasn’t given the same latitude.

    The MP at the Fort Myer gate denied me entry because of it. I was gonna go to the NCO Club for a beer.
    = = = = = = = = = = =

    If you were trying to get into the Navy Yard or Quantico the Marine on the gate probably would have joined you for that beer....

    I used to go into Quantico a lot with my own vehicle and majority of the time they would just wave me through (Vietnam Vet License Plates) and more than likely would salute.

    Marines take care of ‘their own’ and my ‘knowing’ a couple of the NCO MPs didn’t hurt....

    If you require people to pledge allegiance when they don’t choose to do so, the loyalty to that which they pledge is greatly in question.
    = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
    Yes...
    Comes under the same banner as

    We must destroy the village to save it
    and
    The beatings will continue until morale improves.

    are just a couple that fall in.

    We used to sign a ‘loyalty oath’ in the Military.
    You were NOT required to sign it.

    However, if you didn’t sign it, it was assumed you just didn’t want to remain in uniform.

    Sort of comes under the heading of when the ILLEGALS/guests/non citizens etc break our laws they don’t mind holding us to the free lawyer, family aid, food stamps etc but yet profess they want to turn OUR Country into the ‘shiitehole’ they are fleeing from.

    See, even you BNGs/newbies get it right now and then. HA HA

    PDT better whip this group into shape and if he doesn’t they may as well be replaced by the Libs...at least then PDT doesn’t whizz off R’s by going against ‘their’ reps.

    If Ls/Ds have control of both sides of aisle PDT can pull a BO and point out his pen etc and start EOs...HOWEVER the Ls/Ds will not Casper Milquetoast and lay down for PDT, they will fight him, tooth and nail. (Do have to ‘admire’ them for that, they do stick together)

    No different than any other ‘battle’, you expect the enemy or people on the ‘other’ side of the line to not like you BUT when people on YOUR side of the line are as much-if not more -vociferous and anti-you then it is time to take drastic actions...CALL in an Air Strike on the entire position - even if it wipes you out, you are getting both the enemy and traitors out of the way.

    = = = = = = = = = = = = =
    Right.... that is why those ‘women’ in Alabama are either ‘lying’ or their families were trying to marry them off to ‘that thar lawyer fella’

    Most of the ‘good old boys’ I met would (sorta) say that ALL the girls in his town, county state were kind of ‘loose’ EXCEPT my wife, girlfriend,daughter, niece etc etc etc... Now common sense tells you that if EVERYONE has that attitude either NO one is getting any or EVERYONE is ‘loose’.

    So, IMNSHO, any ‘good old boy’ that I knew would have went hunting for the slimy creep- if he were the father, brother etc of ANY 14 or 15 year old gal

    And in a small town, secrets don’t last long when it comes to this BS.

    I understand.
    BUT the ‘headline’ says, to Woman, Not His Wife.

    I was merely being sort of cryptic when I said EVEN his wife should be ashamed if he were to send it to her.

    Hell, I am ashamed that he sent it.....ha ha...

    For ONCE, words escape me.

    What sort of demented fool would think that in ANY way that is a provocative picture?

    He deserves to be HORSEWHIPPED, not so much for the picture but for having the gall to send/publish it.

    I wouldn’t even bother going back to resign, I would just send it in and go into seclusion for the rest of my days.

    Even his wife should be ashamed were he to send it to her....ha ha

    I want these CONGRESSIONAL creeps LIKE CONYERS to pay back the American taxpayers for the ‘hush money’ they paid out using OUR MONEY......ETC..
    = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
    Well put but the WKRP ‘turkey fleet’ will fly first...even the frozen ones...before ANYTHING substantial will happen.’ (Lord I will take the insults etal if proven wrong - in fact I would welcome them)

    Realizing this ‘Congressional’ thing has been going on ‘forever’, I really thought the whole system would get overhauled when the ‘House Banking Scheme’ hit the light of day because EVERY ‘Joe Six Pack & Mate’ know what happens when you start bouncing checks all over the place or even try writing (’kiting’) them prior a deposit.

    These clowns were ‘allowed’ to walk down the the Post Office, buy a roll of stamps, pay for it with a ‘donated’ check and walk away with the change in CASH.

    We slapped a few wrists rather timidly and the ‘poor SOBs’ rather than be facing the same Jail Time J6P etal would be facing were basically allowed to dream up another scheme....

    I remember ‘back in the day’ when a person would retire from the Military, have a ceremony on Friday evening and Monday come in wearing a Suit and ‘working’ for the civilian part of the operation.

    Guess ‘we were too ‘stupid’ to realize the new job was either payback for services past rendered or hiring his expertise to get around the red tape.

    However, when these guys were found out a 5 or so year ban was put on.

    Also remember when we used to ‘laugh’ at people who retired from a Government (NON social security) job then ‘working’ at the local hardware store to make enough money to qualify for the SS money that others had been paying into ALL their working career.

    ‘They’ fixed that by expanding unemployment insurance then allowing people to complain they were ‘depressed and in constant turmoil’ from drawing from the dole, they were allowed to claim such ‘illnesses’ and draw Social Security.

    I have absolutely nothing against LEGITIMATE helping of those in need but we have backed ourselves into a corner by all these ‘giveaways’.

    Watch these ‘Judge’ shows - Judge Judy tries to berate the ‘cheats’ but people actually go on there and admit they are drawing (at 30) SS benefits for a bad back and in the interim have managed to spit out a few kids.
    She used to really get on them but has eased up a little, one of her favorites being -NO, YOU don’t take care of your kids-You are getting food stamps, ADD payments, welfare etc and BYRD & I and the rest of the working people are paying for it.....
    Have never heard one of them ‘Thank her or us’ but todays type has the ‘it is owed to me mentality - doesn’t matter what Race, Color or Creed, it seems to be a prevailing attitude.
    People ‘used’ to take Public or even ‘Church’ money with a little shame but today it seems to be a ‘badge of honor’.

    I pick up on the attitude when a ‘well dressed’ man will sit there, talk about his drawing (whatever) then making a statement like ...I work 24 hrs a week but I CAN’T work any longer than that as I will lose my benefits.
    ‘BENEFITS’ maybe it is time to reintroduce the words mooch and leech into everyday language and quit catering to the phonies...

    Admittedly there probably is such a thing as ADD or whatever they label it BUT once Unca Sugah starts paying YOU if YOUR kid is said to have ADD, pretty soon EVERYONE wants a piece of that action.

    Even from a moral stand point WHY should people be receiving PUBLIC MONEY because they are ‘taking care’ of their own kinfolk?

    But once a program is introduced, it is nigh near impossible to discontinue...
