Seen at a local fair.
Yay! This is the best 9/11 since 9/11!
Be sure to light the candle to celebrate!
After we've all had a slice, maybe we can give a bullhorn to a Texas rooster so he can climb all over it and sing cock-a-doodle doo!
BEST IN CLASS!
So the Los Angeles-class nuclear submarine Hartford and the Navy LPD New Orleans (which is an amphibious dock ship, meaning essentially it can launch and recover amphibious boats for landings: Read below the fold...
Until 1947, the United States habitually told the truth about at least one thing. The job title of the Pentagon's highest ranking civilian was the Secretary of War. But the recent slaughter of tens of millions in the Second World War had given the Pentagon's real function a bad name. So Democrat Harry Truman rebranded the Department of War, naming it the Department of Defense. From that day, the Secretary of War became the Secretary of Defense. War plants, war expenditures and bloodthirsty war industries became more benign-sounding defense plants, the defense expenditures and the patriotic defense industry. Read below the fold...
Radio Sawa broadcast on December 11 the good news from the American forces that the regions of Arab Jabour and Al-Buaitha had been definitively cleared of the last vestiges of AlQaeda. Here's what their website reported that day

The Bush War Department sent 2,600 soldiers from the Minnesota National Guard to Iraq for two years. The survivors came home to learn their orders showed they served one too few days to accrue GI Bill benefits.
Tell me again how anything connected with the GOP supports our armed forces' serving personnel?
Because, while Rush and the rest of their media tools bloviate on the phoniness of soldiers who aren't gung-ho on staying in Iraq forever (especially when the soldiers say this is a distraction from the real mission in Afghanistan), Bu$hco wrecked our Army. Read below the fold...

And besides being pissed that Chimpy has made one more American drop out of college and join the race for lifetime underemployment, I'm pissed at the Democrats. I'm slow and can't keep up with all the developments these days, but since when has the Montgomery Bill (education for vets) package been so shitty? And for how long are the Democrats going to sit around and do nothing about it? I remember the package when I was in, and for some reason it didn't seem as bad as it's described in that clip- I seem to remember there was more. Even if I'm wrong, isn't right now a great time to get moving on something like this? It's a win, win, win situation, no voter would be against it and no Republican could be for very long or very loudly in the last few months of the campaign cycle. Sigh. It just seems so obvious to me.
That the Dems' new "VETS" education package doesn't increase the amount of money given for books or tuition, I'd have to call it "better than warm shit." Just what our returning vets deserve, right? Christ, what hypocrites and idiots rule us.
