A little Big Picture for Christmas

At the suggestion of Carl Sagan, the picture of the 'blue dot' was taken by the Voyager 1 spacecraft in a look back moment as it was leaving our solar system....

Blowing Bubbles.. Tiny Bubbles.

Guess you wouldn't want to run your galaxy class starship into this bubble lest you be cleaning off the mess for several star days..

Say You Want A Revolution ?

I see talk of revolution here, there and everywhere.
Sadly, every form of group communication today is monitored by the government.  Someone tell me how 4 people are going to get together to plan the strategies, let alone the execution.

And isn't it interesting that the government has gotten this evil Right about the time all of the communication monitoring was able to be put in place via the Digitizing of everything.  Hmmmmmmm.

Affordable Health Care for Everyone !!!  Ring the Nirvana Bells  !!!

Well, not everyone, in fact probably only a select few young healthy people who don't even need the crap.

Seems those dirty, filthy, unhealthy POS Smokers who are driving up our health costs are not considered part of the everyone.

Wait until you see how You rate an extra special higher Rate !
(BMI higher than Miley Cyrus's? Moving Violation? Misdemeanor? Domestic Dispute?  Restless Leg Syndrome? don't laugh, People in your Friends list on Facebook? -don't laugh!)

Yea, as predicted 3 years ago when I read the bill.

Our Future. Which Way WIll It Tip. Randoms.

There are some great kids out there to be sure.  Like this kid who was a nuclear genius in high school, and created cold fusion in the lab about the same age.  Click the picture for the story, it's a great 5-6 page read when you have the time.

Ah, but then you have the Clown Show going on unabated.  Obama. Biden, Congress and the Media and a lot of today's kids.  Intelligence of a rock, maturity of a 5 year old, and a destructive culture for many.

I don't think anything needs to be said about the vermin politicians.  All of them, but here's a funny from the media today, the flagship propaganda element CNN.  The name of the website is healthcare.GOV, but CNN touted it as healthcare.COM, which is not the correct website and should only be visited at one's own risk shall we say.

Here's a screen shot from the article that was updated a couple hours later.  How many people already assumed the site name was .Com ?  How many went there to 'sign up' and how will this story be reported as this revelation breaks into the news cycle.  I think it's Hilarious.  That the obama administration didn't have the intelligence of your average teenager who would have bought the healthcare.com domain just to keep this from happening is hilarious.  Maybe they did it on purpose and it's another money making avenue for these vermin.

What do you think of all the actors and guys in commercials with the 3 day stubble on heir face ?  I think it looks good on maybe 0.0000000001 % of the guys out there.  The old dude in the Arby's commercial?  No.  He looks like a train hopping hobo.  In a suit.  It makes most guys look dirty I'd think.  Do the women like it?  Wouldn't it be like kissing a porcupine ?
It's marketing people trying to push a cultural meme on society.  Isn't it funny how people pick up on this, do it, then think they're being unique?
Then who else is coming up with the popular culture stuff? Like tattoos.  Wildly Popular now. I see people with what looks like the contents of a comic book tattooed all over their body but most of them are totally meaningless to everyone else. Geometric designs like you see on the tailgate of a hot rod pickup truck, or maybe some arty thing that you think is pretty so you have it plastered all over yourself for Life.
Anyway, why don't kids get corporate sponsors instead ? Get the golden arches on your face, with "I'm Lovin It" across your chin or forehead and make money while you walk around ?  I think these kids have the right idea, but they probably can't say they're advertising in all weather conditions.

Then the thing with the pants down.  See I think it's all part of the communist Demoralization agenda.  Demoralization is job one when taking over a country.  (I'm not anti-gay but this is the only short funny vid I could find)

Pants down, piercings, tattoos, stubble.
Cursive writing and spelling taken out of the curriculum
Kids afraid of even looking at a gun.

Where are we going to be in 2020 or 2040 ?  Kids running around not able to communicate very well, corporate logos tattooed all over them, piercings, pants down to the knees, 3 day stubble.  No one joins the military anymore because they'd be forced to use one of those nasty 'guns'. Ugh.   It will be the worst looking and acting group of people the world has ever known.  The country might be taken over by the wildlife.

Veterans Day, a Personal Reconcilliation

One of the main things we hear on moments that honor our military members is Freedom Isn't Free.

I know people have trouble reconciling that to every engagement our military finds itself involved in.

I think, for me anyway and surely others, one wonders if we are truly fighting for America's freedom in some of the theaters our sons and daughters find themselves fighting in modern times.  

While Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan could be debated pretty vigorously, in the end, in spite of anything else that could be presented, it comes down to Americans fighting in support of other Americans who have been deployed to the latest God Forsaken Hellhole.  It doesn't matter whether the whole thing came down to a disagreement by a couple of assholes in too high of a position.

As far as Iraq, Afghanistan, we were (and are forever if you ask me) duty bound to provide payback and justice for all of those innocent civilians who were Murdered on 9-11-2001 by a bunch of jackals belonging to a cult called islam.  A price has to be paid at the minimum.  The very minimum.

Sadly, I don't think we've accomplished much in Afghanistan relative to our losses, but those who fought there can always be steadfast in the knowledge they were fighting in support of Americans, even if those Americans were their brothers and sisters in arms.  That in itself would be sufficient reason to join and serve.

It would certainly Not be the worst way to distinguish yourself.

I look forward to the day when we take threats such as the muslim plague seriously enough to deal with it as it must be dealt with to achieve victory.

In the meantime, all of these men and women who have fought for America have probably lived more in a couple years what most Americans don't do in a lifetime and for that I'm jealous of them.
  All veterans have my respect, and it doesn't matter what they did to serve. They at minimum filled a position so that another could fight.

Another representation of how I feel about the military is in the poem Tommy Atkins.  All the best to all the military veterans.

American Politicians Are In the News Way Too Much.

Maybe some other countries too, but who cares about those...

Congress (and those who control it) has evolved from a meet when necessary group to a micro-managing pack of information and power hungry morons.

Why is this? Politicians are afraid of us. They are insecure in their position. It's why they shower us with [false] information about themselves and constant whining about their political adversaries.

Has anyone noticed the volume of news dedicated to politics? Seems like at least 80% if you remove the serious garbage like Entertainment, Sports and Health.
In my opinion, and the opinion of other experts, the % of news dedicated to politics should be about 5%, a little more around elections.

It's like we're being forced to watch constant kindergarten playground wars which are being reported on by day care center inhabitants.

oBAMa to Sign Executive Order to Steal Money for Climate Change..

Because most of the rest of the world knows it's BullShit.  

In fact, a recent aticle pointed out that 'duh sci en tists' were befuddled that CO2 was at highest recorded levels in modern history but the Earth has been getting cooler the last 15 years.

If CO2 is your whole argument and the evidence does not bear it out, then your whole argument is BullShit.

You Know How I Like to Boil Things Down to a Bottom Line...

What occurred to me today to describe our current political environment was this...

The current administration AND the media Demonize EVERYTHING that isn't liberal left.  Add in much of the entertainment industry and other cultural influences.

How is that different than Nazi Germany in the latter 1930's ?

Does that Describe the America that you know ? 

And as I've said before, at least Hitler loved Germany.

Dysfunctional, Dictionary > "See Republican Party"

I vowed not to talk about politicians and I'm skirting the subject by a small margin by talking about an entire party so I think I'm safe on that..

I have to say something about these morons.

  • To get to within 2 days of the credit default and publicly say that "you have lots of ideas and opinions but No Plan"  makes you look like incredible fricken Morons.  Right?
  • You realize that the Senate is going to tell you to shove any moronic 'alternate plan' you come up with up your ass. Right?
  • Worst of all, you want to shoot a .22 caliber bullet at the quadrillion ton beast freight train that is obamacare and think it makes as much difference to anyone as pissing into space?? Really?  You know the effect of that would be to hand, on a silver platter to the democrats, the ability for them to blame 100% of the evil and incredible life destroying aspects of obammycare on You the Moron Clowns of the house GOP for all eternity.  You know that right ?

"Stunning" as in Stunned by a Hydrogen Bomb going off next to my ear doesn't even come close.

My fellow Americans - 3rd Party.

I LOVE This Picture

I found it Here

And this is the picture.  It is and will be (I predict) as Iconic as 4 men raising the flag (for the 2nd time) on Mount Suribachi, Iwo Jima.  Most especially if We make it so.

Frankly, I'm glad many WWII Veterans don't have to view today's events with the anti-American POS in the current section 8 white house.  Most especially my Dad.  He was pretty tired of the BS back in the 1980's.  I can't even imagine what he'd think today.

My Dad..... walked Italy, France and Germany as an Infantry Sergeant, came back whole, raised a family of 4, had a lot of fun doing it.  I miss ya Dad, but I'm glad* you're missing out on this crap.

I wonder if any of the WWII veterans being turned away at the WWII memorial are wondering why they bothered.  I would think some have to be.

Tesla Update

If anyone was interested in Tesla when I mentioned it a while back, here's an update.

Extend the up sloping from left to right white line as time goes on.  (If you need access to a chart, stockcharts.com might be a source)

When Tesla drops below the white line, sell or take your chances.  There was that dip in mid July that recovered the next day but those are somewhat rare.  The dip you see today was caused by a report of a Tesla S which was involved in a pretty good accident and the battery compartment (front) caught fire, but the stock price recovered when Tesla stated that the collision caused a fire after the person was out of the vehicle and because of their design of the battery compartment, the fire never reached the passenger cabin and was put out by the fire department.  

The fact that the intra-day sell-off stopped exactly on that line shows how many people observe trend lines.

Time For a Refresher

Especially with half of the news articles declaring that since CO2 levels are at All Time Highs and ice levels are at All Time Highs, and the globe has been cooling for 15 years now - and the other half declaring that climate change Armageddon is right around the corner, it is time for an entertaining refresher.

Now I don't subscribe to George's macro view of Human Life, but as far as the environmental whack jobs go? Right On !

Couple well deserved and placed F bombs, nothing to worry about though.

John McCain recently Criticized Putin in a Russian Paper. Tsk Tsk Tsk

To Wit:

Writing of Mr. Putin and his associates, Mr. McCain said, “They don’t respect your dignity or accept your authority over them. They punish dissent and imprison opponents. They rig your elections. They control your media. They harass, threaten, and banish organizations that defend your right to self-governance. To perpetuate their power they foster rampant corruption in your courts and your economy and terrorize and even assassinate journalists who try to expose their corruption. They write laws to codify bigotry against people whose sexual orientation they condemn. They throw the members of a punk rock band in jail for the crime of being provocative and vulgar and for having the audacity to protest President Putin’s rule.”

Hey John,  that's different from the USA How?

Today's Culture - Tomorrow's Leaders

Today's culture seems to consist of ESPN, sex, drinking, twerking, no-talent pop 'artists', every kid gets a prize, government is the answer, obama is awesome, and in fact Everything is 'awesome'. Isn't that awesome? It's awesome.

There are some similarities but the trust in government, the twerking, the no talents and 'everything is awesome' are stand-outs. In short there is little substance.  These are the people who are going to be leading tomorrow.  I can't see how it turns out well.

I never knew anyone when I was in my 20's or 30's who trusted government, or who admired women who are like many of the sluts these days.  The music makers were almost all excellent musicians and many were good or great songwriters.

Kids expelled from school because they were seen playing with an airsoft gun in their own yard.  Kids mass conditioned to believe guns are nothing but evil.  Who is going to join the military 20 years from now?  How will the ones who do join be regarded by the masses?

This is the demoralization Comrade Brezmanov speaks of.  It's the communist agenda at work since LBJ in modern times and it Is taking over.  It attacks everything America.
Express Elevator.  We're on it.

The Music/Lyrics That Men Versus Women Create

So, I just happened to have this thought about men and women, relating to music in particular..  You’ve probably had it already.

But it occurs to me that men have been writing songs describing the lengths they are willing to go to just to get a smile from the woman they are currently obsessing about, often to the point of practically begging.  Additionally, they’ve written songs about women they already have connected with, and how fantastic they are and how the Earth would explode if they ever lost them.  Some serious pedestal mounting dialogue.  Thousands upon thousands of songs.

Which is fine by me.

But then I can’t think of any women or girl bands who have written songs about how desperate they are, or how happy they would be if (enter guys name here) would get into a relationship with them.  I think of songs like “What Girls Want” and that type of stuff.  Not that I think girls should ever beg before they’re married anyway.. But it just kinds of jumps out at me as sort of a statement about male / female relationships..

A woman I brought this up with recently mentioned the song back in the late 60’s where the woman sang “Marry Me Bill”.  Ok, but she didn’t really offer up anything like you’d find in songs written by guys, and one could argue she was even being demanding “Marry Me Bill !!”

Well, my point here is None. Just thought I’d toss it out.

In disclosure, I have nothing but respect for women.  Child bearing, house and home holding togethering, relationship monitoring, sirens that they are and work at so hard, while guys are pretty much Go to working, secretary slapping(no not me), get home looking for beer, food and sex dogs !

Talk amongst yourselves...

Scientists Aren't All Bad

Sometimes they come up with ideas to filter light to determine what elements make up the material that the light is being reflected off of or traveling through -  Red/Orange=Sulfur, Blue=Oxygen, Green=Helium, and so on.

Then they design machines such as Hubble, or even ground based telescope arrays to take magnificent pictures (and process them) of those things in space that provoke thought and inspiration.

The Butterfly Nebula.

Worth the tax money.

American Exceptionalism Questioned by Vladamir Putin

So, Vladamir Putin says America is not exceptional.

I'm not going to write a novel here, not needed.

Hey Vlad, Consider:

  • The exceptional value of a country is measured by the people scrambling to get in versus the people trying to get out. So, name me a country where people are scrambling to get in beside America.  It sure as hell  isn't Russia by a long shot, but take your time and pick ANY One other. Que the Jeopardy music
  • Name the country where almost all of today's in demand technology products and applications come from.  Yes, America.  Name which country built the SR71 Blackbird that overflew every country on the planet and never received any damage from everything you boys could come up with to throw at it. Yes! America.   Name the country that out-produced every other country in WWII and which country, regardless of Russia's help or not, would have won WWII. That's right - America.
  • Name the country that won the cold war against Russia that Evil Empire. Right again Vlad - America.
You may want to reconsider your statement.

I will however cut you a little slack with the America of the last 10 or 20 years.  Communist influence is putting a strain on American Exceptionalism.  Hell, America voted in an imbecile from Kenya twice to the white house. (I'll capitalize that once we get an American back in there)

So you see Vlad, American Exceptionalism is only being tarnished by Russian/Communist influence.  What does that say about your own country?
Btw - Would you share your dossier on barack obama with us?  It's got to be a hoot !

Then the kicker, This is an excerpt from a CNN article, that looks like it has some balance in it (I didn't read the whole thing), where right at the top is this gem:

(CNN) -- In the opening scene of the new Aaron Sorkin show, "The Newsroom," a news anchor goes on a tirade when asked why "America is the greatest country in the world."

"It's not the greatest country in the world," he fumes. "We're seventh in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, third in median household income, No. 4 in labor force, and No. 4 in exports. ... So when you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world, I don't know what the f*** you're talking about."

This is rich, the libtards create these problems, then scream and botch about them. One might think that's the strategy, but for most libtards, I believe they have no idea they've created these problems themselves.  It's infuriating isn't it?

Let's Break it Down!
  1. Literacy, math, science - jimmy carter the democrat communist created the federal department of education.  After 40 years we have kids graduating from high school that can't read or write, or make change for a buck at McDonald's without a computer.
  2. Life Expectancy?  Frankly I don't believe this one.  Name 48 more countries with a higher life expectancy please. I'm waiting.
  3. Infant Mortality?  I'd say we're talking about infants born in LBJ's great society environment.White and black. Is abortion included here?
  4. # 4 in labor force, # 4 in exports.  Bill Clinton Opened the Flood Gates from China and shipped all the manufacturing jobs to China and other counties. Yet the struggling libtards Love the bastard.  Go Figure!
All the result of communist influences implemented by communist democrat progressives.

When will we purge this cancer of communist progressive degredation ?

Will it take a General Jack Ripper !?

Ok, Now something to calm you back down again.

Just Too Damn Good Not to Put a Post Out

This was written by a Naval Aviator, TOPGUN, Commander of TOPGUN and now passed on(in the process of teaching new FA-18 TOPGUNS).

The story is life aboard an Aircraft Carrier in combat situation - Iraq.  Each chapter is about a page, and most link to the next chapter but for one or two you may have to come back to this main page to move to the next chapter.


The blog is still there as well, Neptunus Lex, link on my right sidebar, and is a treasure chest in itself.  Man, I sure miss this guy, excellence personified.
  Certainly a reminder of what excellence in America can be and still is in some corners.

As stated in one of his recent posts about being involved with a post training mission debriefing of today's naval aviators, excellence can be so refreshing. Yes.

Enjoy. Damn.

Free Elective Prison Surgery and Treatment

Well Free for them, Paid For by you guessed it.

First off, I don't care what people want to do, I don't want to pay for it. 10 kids, or change gender, or live their life any way they want as long as it is legal and even illegal in some cases, I Don't Care.  Just don't ask me to pay for it.

So, Bradley Manning wants a sex change.  I say too damn bad.  If he wanted to be a girl, he should have done it before now on his own dime and should have Definitely done it prior to being convicted of a crime.  In lieu of that he can damn well wait until he's out and do it on his own dime.

Yea I know the libtards argue that gender issues are not elective surgery but that's because they're fucking insane.

Bradley will be eligible for parole in about 8 years with time served.  A longish time to live in prison, a very shortish time given his offences to this country and the death of people in harms way he surely is responsible for and will be responsible for into the future.

But consider the lifer. Put yourself in his place.  If you can't kick everyone's ass in prison, given the choice of shacking up with Bubba for the duration of Your Life, or getting a sex change and shacking up with Linda for the duration, which would you choose.  I'm no homosexual, but I might decide that hell if I can get this for free, and given my life term - it's not that I'm going to be out in society and have to deal with other men again, I might just go the lesbian route.  It's a lot more attractive than Bubba.  I've seen some friggin Bubba's from a distance.

And the bigger point I'm making here is that I don't believe any inmate should receive any kind of medical attention unless they are Injured or in a life threatening situation.  Just because some dude wants to sit around twirling their hair looking at women instead of hanging out with Bubba, doesn't mean they have a Health Issue.

Good God, this place if unrecognizable.
