Happy Hour

"IF A LIFETIME CAN BE LIKENED TO A DAY, THEN THIS IS HAPPY HOUR!"
BUCK PENNINGTON

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

Yoda

"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

Why Democrats Voted For Obamarrhoid by Fantom

- Working is too hard.
- Thinking is way too hard.
- I am 26, sponging off my mom, and I want free Health Care.
- Freedom of speech is fine as long as I am not offended by it.
- I want government to tax your earnings and give me things I want.
- If I knock-up my girlfriend I want government to pay her to kill the baby.
- We need to raise taxes on business... Gee... Why do things cost so much?
- Murdering helpless babies is ok as long as we keep all death row inmates alive.
- I want government to give Mexicans free health care and education at your expense.
- I want government to take over industry and apply the efficiency of the US Post Office.
- Pouring water on a terrorist's face is horrible, but killing a baby in the womb is good.
- Global Warming is a fact, even if those same scientists can't tell the weather for next week.
From my facebook friend Marlene. She got it from Fantom. Well worth the read.

Memorial Day Weekend 2011

From Sean.
Seems there is a lot of speculation about Sarah Palin's intentions with her appearance at the rally.
She is kicking off her bus tour of the progresso-commie northeast in DC.
Sean has his ideas and views from a true warrior point of view.
HOCKEY MOM MEETS WILD HOGS
Sunday: Sarah Palin arrives at the beginning of Rolling Thunder at the Pentagon during the Memorial Day weekend in Washington.


WILL SHE OR WON'T SHE?



Only time will tell. I could go with a Palin-West ticket. But that is just me.
But the left is having massive fits......as noted on the State Run Media already.

Politico: “Sarah Palin Goes Behind Enemy Lines”


Sorry for the large type at the link but it is what it is.
Captain Teach has a real good one up here today.
The one excerpt is quite interesting and a bit on the funny side.
...........One northeastern GOPer, Connecticut Republican Party Chairman Chris Healy, said he welcomes Palin to the neighborhood because of the effect she has on Democrats.
“She annoys the left to the point of apoplexy, and I love it,” he said. “My liberal friends, when I say her name at a barbecue, they completely come off the rails.”..................
So hit the link at the top and have a read. Worth the time.

Volcanic Ash and Global Cooling

The link is to Opus 6 and her most excellent blog.....American Perspective.
Got some good stuff in this one........
Excerpt follows
"...............NASA says Mount Pinatubo cooled the Earth measurably for 2 years:
On June 15, 200 Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines erupted with a tremendous force, ejecting vast amounts of ash and gas high into the atmosphere; so high that the volcano's plume penetrated into the stratosphere. The stratosphere is the layer of atmosphere extending from about 10 km to 50 km (6-30 miles) in altitude. Pinatubo injected about 15 million tons of sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere, where it reacted with water to form a hazy layer of aerosol particles composed primarily of sulfuric acid droplets. Over the course of the next two years strong stratospheric winds spread these aerosol particles around the globe.
Unlike the lower atmosphere (or troposphere, which extends from the surface to roughly 10 km), the stratosphere does not have rain clouds as a mechanism to quickly wash out pollutants. Therefore, a heavy influx of aerosol pollutants, like the plume from Mount Pinatubo, will remain in the stratosphere for years until the processes of chemical reactions and atmospheric circulation can filter them out. In the case of Mount Pinatubo, the result was a measurable cooling of the Earth's surface for a period of almost two years......................"

Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion: Kagan Should Recuse Herself As To Obamacare

Professor Jacobson has some good points here....and not all are pointing to the overturning of obamacare.
But there is still hope...
And this "woman" should have never been confirmed much less nominated........no judicial bench experience at all. None. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
At least Sotomayor had some......not much but some. Kagan is agenda driven.......for what ever reasons she has.......maybe as part of her growing up process?Who knows.....Most of the nominees for anything that oblunder comes up with all have skeletons in their collective closets......The variance being how many and at what level of severity those skeletons are.

President Obama throws Israel under the Palestinian bus

From the Washington Examiner.
Good Editorial. Go and read it. It will give you some extra insight into the loyalties of the current occupant.


................President Obama stirred up a hornets' nest when he declared during his highly anticipated Middle East speech Thursday that Israel's borders should be based on the pre-1967 lines. He added enough caveats to render his demand unattainable from a practical standpoint, but, as a matter of political and strategic perception, Obama has inflicted a serious wound on America's most reliable ally. For that reason, it's important to understand what Obama is demanding of Israel................

The Antelope Valley Memorial Wall

This is one for this part of California. It does travel though.
I had a meritorious early today..........airplane wash. So I went to Lancaster HS where it is open through tomorrow.
I know two of the names on it. Darryl Juel and Reid Grayson, Jr. from Scobey, Montana. I was in the seventh grade there in 66-67 and played basketball with their younger brothers. Two from a little bitty(1,000) town in NE Montana. My Mom and Darryl Juel's Mom taught school together in the elementary school..
Still brings a tear............after all these years.






No captions are really necessary. But the thing I noticed was the deference and respect, even by the youngsters from the Student Body at LHS who were assisting. I had a young lady who was about a year older than my step grand daughter. I guess I am now one of the old men.
And yes, it still brings tears...........It probably will, always.
Buck, MUD and others who have been..............understand.

Old versus New

Had a short discussion on FB with a young lady who at one time served in the Argonauts of Strike Fighter Squadron One Four Seven.
Seems she is upset over us Attack Squadron One Four Seven taking exception to the new era. Which, BTW began in 1989 with the arrival of the F/A-18C Hornet. I was gone from the squadron before then.
And the FB Page in question is titled VA-147, not VFA-147.
I was civil in relating what the differences were. Really, I was. But there is now a VFA-147 Argonauts page. Good on them. I wish them well.
Differences in generations, missions and we still were a ways from the now overly PC, Diversity Driven Navy we have now.
Just observations of how things are.

dear dipshits (congress)  

I’m faxing/emailing  you today to let you know that I strongly oppose Congress’ plan to raise the debt ceiling. Doing so would only enable lawmakers like you to consider spending our nation into oblivion! 

I have lost patience with you, and demand that you champion a tough, no nonsense approach to curbing this reckless economic spending spree that simply is not sustainable.

Americans like myself want real fiscal responsibility, and we are holding YOU accountable. Your very job depends on how you address this debt crisis. I urge you to oppose the raising of the debt ceiling, and will be watching how you vote when the time comes.

"Uncontroversially?" Only in a world where disagreement meant denial of academic tenure and publishing venues, being ignored by the media and generally denied access to the public forum of ideas.It would only be "uncontroversial" in a world where all alternative outlets for ideas were attacked and ridiculed, and attempts were regularly made to shut them down. It would only be "uncontroversial" ... in the world that Chomsky lives in, actually.

Who Killed Susan Lucci?

A treatise from Bob. It seems that the soap opera is a dying creature. Seems that the unions are destroying a former staple of daytime TV. Never did like them but some had some drop dead gorgeous babes on them. Thank the Almighty for a mute button!
But the link is to The Camp of The Saints and Bob's take. Good Read. Really Good Read.

From Stormbringer: THE BIN LADEN HIT

Sean has a dandy post up on the action of Sunday in the suburb of Islamabad. The name of the Paki Capital is disgusting to the ear!
And these bags of shit in Pakistan are supposed to be our allies(my take only)?

Straight from Fredd Spews.
Good post from a really smart guy!

NLRB plays fast and loose in Boeing case

Link is to the Washington Examiner.
Seems that a Boeing VP and general counsel, Michael Luttig could cause fits in this. I should imagine Patty "Sneakers" Murray is not pleased. To damn bad. The unions may be pushing a bit too far on this one.
But read for yourself, folks, and make up your own mind.
