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

Seal Acquittal/Arizona has balls

I see and here on the TV news that two of the Navy Seals who were accused of beating a captured muzzie terrorist have been acquitted. By a Courts Martial. 2 of the 3 accused so far. Deliberations have been short...............hmmmm? The bits and pieces I get from the Drudge Report and Fox News have most of the prosecution witnesses contradicting one another. I won't go into the part about the Convening Authority being Air Force. Two different ways of doing business, there. That is all on that in deference to Buck.
I would place a twenty on this..........obama, holder, pelosi, napolitano and company are probably having apoplectic fits over this one. Cause we all know that the idea of these fine, upstanding young Petty Officers not being convicted is just too hard for them to swallow.
So this is a score of two for the Good Guys. Let us hope it is a sweep.
The Arizona legislature and Governor Brewer pretty much drove a spike up the Administration's Ass today. It is now against Arizona law(90 days after the session ends) to be in the United States of America illegally! The woman has bigger balls than the cinc or the attorney general. The aclu is already having major hissy fits about it. Advice to them, don't go to Arizona. The majority of the citizenry there is tired of the bullshit.

I was happy to hear about the aquittals of the 2 petty officers and hope the third gets the same result.
Good for the AZ governor, although Obama doesn't seem to like it very much. I have a feeling he may use the new AZ law as a reason to push for amnesty.
I see that you are a veteran and I just want to thank you for your service to our country.
Thanks, too, for visiting my blog. I hope you'll stop by again.

I was glad for the acquitted AND that the Arizona governor has good sense, something Janet sorely lacks.

Buck said...

I remain amazed the Navy didn't just quietly drop the charges against the three SEALs. This whole fiasco is simply bad PR for the Navy and all the services, by association. I'm glad the UCMJ system is working "as designed" and am hoping for a clean sweep in the acquittal department.

Miracles do happen on occasion, Chief. The gutless officers on that court martial board finally got it right.

Let's cross our fingers on the third...

They capture us and cut our heads off. We capture them and face a court martial for a bloody lip. Something is wrong with that picture. This administration is despicable.

As for Brewer, I am a Latino for legal immigration. A crime is a crime

The hell with Pelosi, Red and Holder.

I will not go down and tell my children I didn't have the courage, the conviction, the commitment or the character to fight for this country...Don't go home and let your children down~~ LTC Allen West
