2. Banter between Jeff, Buck and Jeff at PHJ&Fhttp://parrotheadjeff.com/blog/. It was for St. Patrick's Day. I worked. 24.87 an hour. Launch, recover, ground test, preflight/basic post flight inspections, covers on and call it a day. The old line from the past came to light. The one about,,,,,, this ain't no shit. It has it's origins for me in the following. The difference between a fairy tale and a Sea Story......is.............A fairy tale starts with "Once upon a time." A Sea Story starts with "This ain't no shit." Almost a correlation with the adventures inside the beltway that have been in the forefront of the news lately. With our resident idiots. The Wicked Witch of The West, The Scumbag from Searchlight, you know, the usual suspects in any and all processes to dismantle the Constitution.
3. No Rant, Cuss words or such today. Got other things to do. But I figured a few words towards the dirtbags in the congress is in order.
To the lady who last week commented on either this blog or Buck's http://exileinportales.blogspot.com/about us being un American for not wanting to pay for other's health care. It isn't our job. It is your job to pay for ours. We were made a promise along time ago. Yes. A promise. Serve your country for 20 years or more and you will be taken care of. Buck is now going to be cast aside. He will be 65 soon and will have to go on medicare. Some kept promise, isn't it? For those who think this is an entitlement, it isn't in any way at all. It is paid for. In ways most of our fellow countrymen have no way of understanding. Including a fair number of my own relatives. It ain't all that cool stuff you see in the recruiting ads. Not by a long shot. Even a routine, seemingly "normal" day can be filled with hazards to life and limb. For me that was flight decks aboard The Good Ships Independence, Ranger and Kitty Hawk. And flight lines and hydraulic test stands at various Naval Air Stations I was posted at. In your service, good people, In Your Service.
