Happy Hour


Mother, Mother Ocean

Mother, Mother Ocean, I've heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
You've seen it all, you've seen it all
Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam
In your belly you hold the treasures, few have ever seen
Most of 'em dream, most of 'em dream
Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred year's too late
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late


"Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is."
―Yoda, to Luke Skywalker

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
I have these pictures and I keep these photographs
To remind me of a time
These pictures and these photographs
Let me know I'm doin' fine
We used to be so happy once upon a time
Once upon a time
But the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line
And the sun sank west of the Mendocino County Line

CGI Rule Five

Arty ain't it? A bit bored on a Saturday Afternoon here in the Desert!

Spot-On Quote of The Day: From Bob Belvedere

The Spot-On Quote of The Day!

20,000 pageviews!

Sometime about 1400 Local Time in the Desert, I had my 20,000th viewer here at Old Retired Petty Officer!
Wow! I know it is not a lot but hey, I am still doing the regular old Blogger thing and I still have much to learn.
But it feels good to see that many in just about a year and a half.

From my friend Ira at Facebook

The NEXT time anti-nuclear power activists tell you that nuclear power is inherently unsafe, ask "Safer than what?"
1. In 1944 a gas explosion in Cleveland leveled a neighborhood and killed 130.
2. Coal mining has killed 100,000 miners, in the 20th century and continues to kill an average of six a day in China.
3. A hydro electric dam collapsed during the last earthquake, wiped away 1800 homes and killed a yet to be established number of people.
4. A coal plant must be fed with a 100 car train every 30 hours while an equivalent nuclear plant will see refueling from six trailer trucks once every two years.
5. Uranium is supplied to the world's nuclear plants from 45 mines. Russia is offering to supply all the world's plants from just one mine. There are 283 mines in West Virginia and 449 in Kentucky alone.
6. The amount of energy that can be harvested from wind, hydro electric and solar is about 15 orders of magnitude less than Nuclear; meaning those renewables are 150 times less efficient.
7. The Hoover Dam requires a 250 square mile land area reservoir to produce the energy equivalent of one nuclear plant on one square mile.
8. Windmills require even more land. Replacing the two reactors in Indian Point in Westchester NY would require lining the Hudson River from New York City to Albany NY with 45 story windmills spaced one quarter mile apart, and since they would operate only one third of the time, backup power would be required.
9. Solar too is a land hog, requiring 20 square miles of state of the art mirrors or photovoltaic panels, to equal on nuclear plant. Of course as the sun does not always shine, a backup plant is in order.

Some Rule Five on a Sunday Evening!

Guys don't make passes................................................
Yeah. Right.
Rule 5 from Three Beers Later


This was in an email from my friend Mary. She is a native of Montana, like me. Hi-Line Girl.

God was missing  for six days.  Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found  him, resting on the seventh day.
He inquired,  "Where have you been?"

God smiled deeply  and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look,  Michael.  Look what I've made."
Archangel  Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is  it?"
"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put  life on it.  I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to  be a place to test Balance."
"Balance?" inquired  Michael, "I'm still confused."
God explained,  pointing to different parts of Earth.  "For example,  northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and  wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor.  Over  here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there  is a continent of black people.  Balance in all  things."

God continued pointing to different countries.   "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be  very cold and covered in ice."
The Archangel,  impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said,  "What's that one?"

"That's Montana, the most glorious  place on earth.  There are beautiful  mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and  plains.  The people from Montana are going to be  beautiful, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are  going to travel the world.  They
 will be extremely sociable,  hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers  of good things."
Michael gasped in wonder and  admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God?   You said there would be balance."

God smiled,  "I will create Washington,  DC.  Wait till you see the idiots I put  there."

Predictable: Obama and Chavez are just alike

Predictable: obama begins chavez like attacks on the oil industry via Jethro Bean at Facebook

The link is the reason for the post below. Read both. Makes one go HMMMMMM
Jethro Bean on Facebook had this about the oblunder, gas prices and the oil companies.

“Four billion dollars of your money are going to these companies at a time when they’re making record profits and you’re paying near record prices at the pump,” the president said at a Nevada town hall. “It has to stop.”

Obama also announced... a Justice Department task force that will probe whether speculators and traders are to blame for the high prices.

Of course, these types of attacks appear to be more typical of third-world dictators than U.S. presidents. Just last year, Hugo Chavez blamed "the speculator" for causing food price inflation and he's demonized oil companies for years.

Chávez said [the currency devaluation] moves should not spur price increases, and on his Sunday radio and television address promised to punish those who do.

“There is no reason for anybody to be raising prices,” he said, calling on citizens to “publicly denounce the speculator” and promising to “take over any business, of any size, that plays the bourgeoisie speculation game.”

* * * * * * * * *

In his never-ending search for scapegoats, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez is quick to point the finger ... Instead of Big Oil, this time he's hounding oil services companies, which do drilling, exploration, and other important work for state-owned Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA).

...Last time Chávez picked a fight with foreign oil companies, prices for Venezuela's heavy crudes were heading for record highs.

I don't know about you, but isn't it at least a tad discomfiting that the speeches of Chavez and Obama could be confused for one another?

Oh -- and then there's this: Mr. Peabody, please set the Wayback Machine to July of 2008, when the ludicrous Ken Salazar -- now Secretary of the Interior -- insisted that Democrats would continue to block drilling even if gas hit $10 a gallon.

Mitch McConnell (R-KY): "What is the definition of an emergency? Maybe it is $7.50 a gallon? Therefore I renew my consent request with the following modification... that the implementation date that triggers the modification would occur when the price of gasoline reaches seven dollars and fifty cents a gallon."

Ken Salazar (D-CO): "I... I... object".

MM: "Mr. President, I renew my request with the modification that the trigger be ten dollars a gallon at the pump."

KS: "I object."

* * *

We have enough oil to satisfy American needs for at least the next 100 years, but Democrats won’t let you have it. They’d rather you pay $10 per gallon at the pump and watch food prices increase 250% rather than agree to drilling. If you don’t want $10 per gallon gas, vote Republican.

And it's not just the Democrats' hatred of drilling.

It's the Obama administration's suicidal deficit spending that has resulted in unprecedented inflation of commodity prices.

The costs of silver, gold, oil, gas and food (above) have skyrocketed over the last two years.

Since Barack Obama took office, the policy of quantitative easing has touched off a monumental wave of inflation.

While our delightful bureaucrats in Washington insist that inflation "is under control", a quick drive to the gas station helps us refute that propaganda. Americans' costs for energy and everything it helps produce and move -- most importantly, food -- is dramatically increasing. This hidden tax on seniors, "the poor" and "the middle class" is the direct result of Barack Obama's policies of record-setting deficit spending and restricting our access to energy.

And the pain has only just begun. Remember in 2012.

The Sky's the Limit

From Mike at Cold Fury.
Can you believe this? I guess this is the audacity he bloviates about.
In direct violation of in place agreements and previous court rulings just to get even? GMAFB!
I do believe Boeing can bloody well build a factory where ever they choose. But the pantywaists at the IAM and AW are in a snit along with our so called "benevolent rulers."

...........Members of President Obama’s National Labor Relations Board think they can. In a decision that even the New York Times is describing as “highly unusual for the federal government,” Lafe Solomon, who was appointed to the board by Obama, filed a complaint on behalf of the NLRB on Wednesday seeking to force the Boeing Co. to build an assembly line in Washington state instead of South Carolina. The NLRB action stems from Boeing’s October 2009 decision to build a new factory for its new 787 Dreamliner airplane near Charleston, S.C. Boeing first sought to build the new plant near its existing facility in Puget Sound, but negotiations with the International Association of Machinists broke down when the union refused to agree to a long-term no-strike clause. The IAM had struck four times since 1989, costing Boeing at least $1.8 billion in revenue................
Things are going to get interesting..........

A letter to a uber-liberal friend

My friend Mary Bredlau has this up on facebook.
It is an excellent read. Really.

I don't hate Obama .. I just want to be rid of him and his ilk.
Why am I not allowed to disagree and then be called names if I do.
You always include me in "you and your ilk" ..
I truly don't think you even realize what my beliefs are ..
There was no way for "us" to block anything, the Democrats had a super-majority, and have had since 2007 until the last landslide election ..the left loves to use the "threatened filibuster" line .. that never happened and since when did the Democrats shrink from a "threat". The wrong folk are being blamed ..
The Democrats had every chance to pass a budget but didn't.
The Republicans have lost their backbone and compromise entirely too much .. they are still on the "politically correct" train as far as I'm concerned.
If something isn't done about the excessive spending, all entitlements will be lost.
Please don't take for granted that we will always be as we were ..
Your slam on the billionaires: you do know that Soros manages his own hedge fund (taxed @ cap gains rates 15% and not an income tax bracket) and lives abroad .. yes? You hold him to a different standard, clearly. BTW, I don't hate him either, he's a brilliant investor and knows the ins and outs .. I disagree vehemently with his political views. He is a direct beneficiary of the recent Petrobras and Brazil oil deal granted by Obama.
Why do you not find that offensive?
I venture to guess you would if it were a Koch investment.
The main reason I find it offensive is because our USA oil companies are not getting the same treatment .. and I doubt we, as a nation, will get any kind of break on cost. But, Brazil is one of our South American allies ..
As for Libya .. I disagree with the way it was handled .. but, since we are there, win it and get out .. same problem I have with the other two, war cannot be won being politically correct, unfortunately ..
You have never taken the time to get to know me and what I really believe.

Overlooking the Antelope Valley

On the way back from the Sepulveda VA Facility and an eye exam. There is a scenic overlook above the lake that looks out over East Palmdale to Lancaster and beyond. It was a bit hazy at the time along with dust from the brisk wind coming off the mountains.
Just a few I thought might interest all.
The mark going up that hill is the indicator on the surface of the San Andreas Fault, I think.

LA-Palmdale Airport and Air Force Plant 42. Home of the Lockheed Skunk Works and other Aerospace Companies Special Projects Divisions. In addition there is a rather nice little park along East Rancho Vista that has many aircraft on static display.

Palmdale Lake toward the Airport, Plant 42 and vaguely in the distance is Edwards AFB to the right.

From PaPa Jim at RTR: The Face of Islam

You know, recently I have been thinking about the state of the world as it is today, Wars, suicide bombings, genocide, violence of all kinds and just the wanton viciousness of people in general.

And, trying as hard as I can, I just don’t get this blind hatred that seems to be consuming humans. I just can’t imagine having that kind of hatred in my heart that I would be willing to kill innocent people.

How can someone possibly think that blowing up innocent people is the way to Heaven? What religion would condone such a thing? What kind of God blesses such a thing?

What kind of human being is it that could present themselves as men of God and promise an eternity in paradise simply because their last act was to murder innocent lives?

What kind of religious scriptures would endorse wholesale murder?

What kind of religion puts a contract on a writer’s head because he said something they disagree with?

What kind of religion would attempt to murder a cartoonist for doing a drawing they don’t like?

What kind of religion would make a father believe he’s acting in accordance with its teachings when he murders his own daughter because he thinks she has dishonored their family?

What kind of religion is this?

I have heard it said that Islam is a peaceful religion that has been hijacked by radicals. I only wish that I could believe this, but with all that I have seen, common sense will not allow me to believe it.

The face of Islam today is anything but peaceful. There is nothing is Islamic society that I can see that makes me believe they are peaceful.

A Muslim speaking publicly against the violence of Islam is an anomaly.

As I write this, The United States is fighting on three fronts, all against Muslim forces.

There are frequent attempts to kill American’s in public places with bombs, all set by Muslims.

There are ships being captured and people being viciously murdered of the coast of Africa, all by Muslim pirates.

There have been numerous videotaped beheadings, terrorist attacks around the world, kidnappings and torture, all done in the name of Islam.

If this is not the true Islam, then is seems to me that the Muslim’s who practice true Islam, should separate themselves from these violent sects.

Until that day comes, most of the world and I will neverview Islam as a peaceful religion.

Now, think about this, our current president sides with these people and participates in their rituals, and has said so publicly. Now, since we have been fighting wars with these people, what does that make him?

Please, tell me, what do you think?

Pray for our troops, and for our country.

God Bless America

Dangerous Democracy Delusions: PIG Gazette updates today

Dangerous Democracy Delusions
Source: Pagan Scribbler Shallow Thoughts [03/27/11]

Two, seemingly unrelated, Beltway Bozo brainfarts are in the process of combining into a critical mass. Once the ensuing chain reaction runs its course, it will destroy Israel, and make this land conceived in liberty an easier target for our Jihadikaze enemies.

One brainfart has been with us for at least a decade, probably much longer. It went ‘viral’ in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attack on America, when nobody had the balls to state the obvious: Islam which motivates our enemies is, by it’s very nature, incompatible, with our individual liberty. Unfortunately, everyone inside the beltway, agreed, when President Georg W. Bush stated emphatically, that ‘we are not at war with Islam’. What he never stated...what the Beltway Bozos have never admitted, is the incontrovertible fact that Islam, driven by significant portion of its adherents, is at war with us. It's at war with our inalienable individual liberty.

The people in positions of power, especially those put there by the Obama Regime, refuse to confront the critical role that Islam plays in our ongoing war with Jihadikaze rat bastards. In 2011, this willful myopia means that the people who should be paying attention to our homegrown Jihadikazes - Islamikazes like the Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood murderer - are too busy trying to blame these home front attacks on a crappy childhood, rampant Islamophobia among We the People, and/or some undiagnosed mental breakdown. They blame these home front attacks on anything/everything except the real cause: Islam. Because of this willful myopia, we are fighting a war with our eyes closed, against an enemy whom we’re not allowed to name. It’s the express lane to our defeat and, ultimately, our destruction.

By itself, our 'Islam is the enemy of our liberty' blind spot dooms us to an eventual defeat. That defeat looms larger, these days, due to the second brainfart, which has reached epidemic proportions, within both of our political clans. The name of this brainfart is reflected in the title for this rant: Dangerous Democracy Delusions. We hear it from The One. We hear it from the fossil he defeated in the 2008 general election. We hear it from the Elected Tormentors who spend too much time in the Washington D. C. Twilight Zone and too little time in objective reality. We hear it from MSM Barack suckers. We hear it too often and I, for one, am sick of it.

I’ll f-ing explode if I hear Barry, the MSM Barack suckers, Juan McCain, or anyone else, gush about resurgence of Democracy in North Africa and other parts of the Islamikaze world. Today (Sunday March 27, 2011) McCain betrayed his profound ignorance, with this statement:

"This is a moment of historic proportions, and this will give us a moment of opportunity to help with the spread of democracy."

Is Juan on crack? Has he self-medicated his brain into neutral? Is it even remotely possible that he doesn’t know the difference between Democracy and Individual Liberty? Does this fool really equate Democracy and Individual Liberty, when truth is that they’re worlds apart:

"The importance of the distinction between freedom and democracy cannot be overstated. Democracy is living by permission of others, constantly subject to their whims, simply because they are the majority. It matters not whether the master is a government acting as the agent for the majority, or a lawless, un-ruly mob. Either way, the subject is a slave. It mustn’t be forgotten that it wasn’t freedom that killed the great philosopher, Socrates, but democracy." (Free World Trading Company)

In places like Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Libya, Democracy means deposing one kind of tyranny - the tyranny of an autocrat - and putting another kind of tyranny - the liberty nuking tyranny of Sharia - in its place. The spread of Democracy, in these Islamikaze infested, Sharia-venerating, nations is not a cause for celebration. Instead, it’s a cause for concern. McCain’s beloved ‘Democracy’ revival is the resurgence of mob rule and this mob is more likely to venerate Ayatollah Khomeini than Thomas Jefferson.

McCain, et al, aren’t the only ones suffering from these Dangerous Democracy Delusions. It’s the prevailing - until recently - editorial policy at the New York Times. This week, the realization that mob rule is invariably ugly took the NYT Moonbats by surprise. Belatedly, they took a close look at the people who will fill the power vacuum that was created by Mubarak’s departure from the scene. During the uprising and afterwards - until Libya took center stage - rational adults warned that the Muslim Brotherhood would be the new rulers of Egypt. That, everyone with a functioning synapse knew, would mean an Egyptian society that bears an uncomfortable resemblance to Iran and Saudi Arabia. The only ones who couldn't, wouldn't, see it worked at the Times.

This week, the New York Times, looked at the results of the Egyptian elections, and said ‘Yup, it certainly looks like the Muslim Brotherhood won the elections. Who would have seen THAT one coming?' Of course, they’re still in Sharia denial, concerning Egypt, but, eventually, even those NYT will smell the Sharia coffee. Unhappily, the NYT isn’t the alone, when it comes to deliberately ignoring the truth about events in the Middle East.

Unwilling to learn from the events in Egypt, the usual suspects - MSM and Elected Tormentors alike - willfully ignored the fun facts about the ‘Democracy seekers’ in Libya. The primary fun fact is that, like the Democracy seekers in other Islamikaze nations, the Libyan insurgents are in cahoots with Osama bin Laden and his al-qaeda Jihadikazes. It means that The One has our men and women in uniform aiding and abetting Jihadikazes who spent quality time, trying to kill American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.

If you think these al-qaeda affiliates are ‘over it’ now and gung ho for Uncle Sam and liberty, wake up! In the early days of the rebellion in Libya, the ‘Democracy seekers’ rewarded Osama and his pals, by giving them a lot of the weaponry Libya’s reigning tyrant amassed in his armories. That means, while the USAF keeps the rat bastards safe, in Libya, the Democracy seekers are repaying us, by sending weapons to Afghanistan, where they will be used against our men and women on the front lines.

I don’t expect much from Juan McCain, but, since he spouted off about this ‘moment of historic proportions’ he should pull his head out of his ass and try to get it right. The inconvenient truth about the ‘Democracy’ sweeping the Islamikaze world is downright ugly, because, when the dust settles, and the last tyrant is evicted, there will be an unbroken string of ‘little Irans’ in North Africa. Our friends, the Israelis will find themselves with ‘little Irans’ on all sides. It would be nice if Juan McCain tried to wrap his mind around THAT, before he started flapping his gums about this tidal wave of Democracy that is sweeping across the Islamikaze world.

I wonder if this RINO fossil will have the nads to, probably long after it’s all said and done, admit that, while it’s spiffy that all the tyrants are gone, it’s not spiffy that one kind of tyranny was supplanted by another. I wonder if he’ll have the guts to admit that the willful refusal to name our enemy played a critical role in transforming the Middle East into series of 7th century outposts of tyranny, all of which use Iran as their role model. The answer to all of the above - assuming, of course, that he even admits the truth to himself - is probably not.

With or without The One ensconced in the Oval Office, Uncle Sam would be hard pressed to control the flow of events that are transforming the Islamikaze world. On that score, we are, unhappily, in a lose-lose situation, where all our options suck. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing that needs to be done. We could, and should, do what we can to prepare for this radicalized, terminally hostile Islamikaze world that’s headed our way. We could, and should, for example, strengthen our ties with Israel, a country which might be, our last, best, hope to neutralize the destructive power of all the ‘little Irans’ that are popping up in their immediate neighborhood. Finally, we could, should, and must limit the power of these ‘little Irans’ by unshackling our domestic energy reserves, taking the ‘oil weapon’ out of the enemy’s hands.

Will The One, Juan McCain, and/or our other Democracy Deluded Elected Tormentors wake up before it’s too late? Not of their own free will, but, they might get with the program, if We the People assert our authority and demand that they wake up, before it’s too late. The next move is ours, We the People Sparky, and the time to make it is NOW.

Parting shot: I'm not opposed, in theory, or in practice, to letting Libyans, Syrians, etc. name their own poison. If, when they determine their nation's fate, they trade autocratic tyranny for Sharia-based tyranny, so be it. I'm not saying that Uncle Sam should try use his military to stop them. I am saying that the willfully myopic meatheads inside the beltway need to open their eyes and see the world for what it is, instead of leaving their eyes shut and assuming the world is the way that they want it to be. Wake up and smell the coffee? You better believe it, Sparky.

ND Legislature and NCAA bigshots to meet in Bismarck

Seems that the State of North Dakota is going to make a law regarding the name of UND sports teams. The primary target is the Hockey Team because it is a national power in NCAA Div. 1 Hockey. The law will require the University to keep the name, Fighting Sioux.
