OK, Folks ........................................

I realize I've been rather remiss in volume of posting, and it will probably get worse before it gets better - our daughter is stranded in New Orleans {long story, but her husband's commanding officer refuses to allow personnel to leave the base to safeguard their families - this 'female' officer is looking at her intransigence and total lack of compassion as a stepping stone to promotion - mark my words - no matter if D. just experiences heavy rain, this particular officer's career is history if I have anything to say about it} ............................. as you can probably imagine, I'm not handling it too well ............................ so please, bear with me ............................. and please keep D., her husband and all other active duty members & their families in your thoughts & prayers ........................


UPDATE: As of 1700 this evening, she was doing OK - the storm hit hardest about 100-120 miles west of her location, and was still moving in a WNW direction {toward US! ;-) } - she'd been without electricity since 0600 this morning, so "we're" trying to conserve the battery for her cellphone .......................... there is STILL a Naval officer out there who's career is OVER - she just doesn't know it yet .............................

OK, Folks, Roger of RadarSite is requesting some assistance .................................

via Crusader Rabbit, he's asking folks from places other than the U.S. to talk about
what y'all like about America & her people;
it sounds as though it will be a verbal single finger salute to "our" MSM, who are
constantly informing "us" how America & Americans are hated around the world - since
my Neo-Counter indicates that I have a lot of visitors from different parts of the
globe, I'm asking that those of you so inclined go here:
Let's hear it for America! and give Roger some feedback.

Subject: Olympic Commentators

Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators so far during
Summer Olympics games that they would like to take back:

1. Weightlifting commentator: This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her
snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing.

2. Dressage commentator: This is really a lovely horse and I speak from
personal experience since I once mounted her mother.

3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and
father.

4. Boxing Analyst: Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths in
boxing, but none of them really that serious.

5. Softball announcer: If history repeats itself, I should think we can
expect the same thing again.

6. Basketball analyst: He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it.
In fact you can see it all over their faces.

7. At the rowing medal ceremony: Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the IOC
president is hugging the cox of the British crew.

8. Soccer commentator: Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've got
eleven Dicks on the field.

9. Tennis commentator: One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that,
before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them... Oh
my God, what have I just said?

SuperFod 'dribbling' the head of the runt of a

litter of 6 - I found Mama last year, just before Halloween, with an M-80 duct taped to her tail - if it had been lit off, she probably would've died from blood loss .......................... oh, and the 'dribbling'? That's one of my spousal unit's means of showing affection to the felines - and yes, he HAS tried it on me, but I don't purr when he does it ..................... ;-)

FW: Get YOUR FLAG Ready to FLY
Subject: : Get YOUR FLAG READY

Please join us in this FLY THE FLAG campaign and PLEASE forward this Email
immediately to everyone in your address book asking them to also forward it.
We have a little less than one week and counting to get the word out all
across this great land and into every community in the United States of
America.

If you forward this email to least 11 people and each of those people do the
same ... you get the idea.

THE PROGRAM:
On Thursday, September 11th, 2008, an American flag should be displayed
outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States.
Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on
this seventh anniversary of one our country's worst tragedies.
We do this honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families,
friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today
are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.

In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in
American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood
shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but
disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it
shouldn't take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American
flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over Terrorism
of all kinds.

Action Plan:

So, here's what we need you to do ..

(1) Forward this email to everyone you know (at least 11 people).
Please don't be the one to break this chain. Take a moment to think back to
how you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you.

(2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Honestly, Americans should fly
the flag year-round.

;-) I MAY have to re-post this in November, but ...........................................

The USMC is over 219 years of romping, stomping, hell, death and destruction. The finest fighting machine the world has ever seen. We were born in a bomb crater, our mother was an M-16 and our father was the devil.

Each moment that I live is an additional threat upon your life. I am a rough looking, roving soldier of the sea. I am cocky, self-centered, overbearing, and I do not know the meaning of fear, for I am fear itself. I am a green, amphibious monster made of blood and guts who arose from the sea, festering on anti-Americans throughout the globe. Whenever it may arise, and when my time comes, I will die a glorious death on the battle field, giving my life to mom, the Corps, and the American flag.

We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army. On the 7th day, while God rested, we over-ran his perimeter and stole the globe, and we've been running the show ever since. We live like soldiers and talk like sailors and slap the hell out of both of them. Soldier by day, lover by night, drunkard by choice, MARINE BY GOD!!!

Subject: THE Marine Corps Version of Genesis 1

In the beginning was the word, and the word was God.

In the beginning was God, and all else was darkness and void, and without form. So God created the heavens and the Earth. He created the sun, and the moon, and the stars, so that light might pierce the darkness. The Earth, God divided between the land and the sea, and these he filled with many assorted creatures.

And the dark, salty, slimy creatures that inhabited the murky depths of the oceans, God called sailors. And He dressed them accordingly. They had little trousers that looked like bells at the bottom. And their shirts had cute little flaps on them to hide the hickeys on their necks. He also gave them long sideburns and shabby looking beards. God nicknamed them "squids" and banished them to a lifetime at sea, so that normal folks would not have to associate with them. To further identify these unloved creatures, He called them "petty" and "commodore" instead of titles worthy of red-blooded men.

And the flaky creatures of the land, God called soldiers. And with a twinkle in His eye, and a sense of humor that only He could have, God made their trousers too short and their covers too large. He also made their pockets oversized, so that they may warm their hands. And to adorn their uniforms, God gave them badges in quantities that only a dime store owner could appreciate. And He gave them emblems and crests... and all sorts of shiny things that glittered...and devices that dangled. (When you are God you tend to get carried away.)

On the 6th day, He thought about creating some air creatures for which he designed a Greyhound bus driver's uniform, especially for Air Force flyboys. But He discarded the idea during the first week, and it was not until years later that some apostles resurrected this theme and established what we now know as the "Wild-Blue-Yonder Wonders."

And on the 7th day, as you know, God rested.

But on the 8th day, at 0730, God looked down upon the earth and was not happy. No, God was not happy! So He thought about His labors, and in His divine wisdom God created a divine creature. And this He called Marine. And these Marines, who God had created in His own image, were to be of the air, and of the land, and of the sea. And these He gave many wonderful uniforms.

Some were green; some were blue with red trim. And in the early days, some were even a beautiful tan. He gave them practical fighting uniforms, so that they could wage war against the forces of Satan and evil. He gave them service uniforms for their daily work and training. And He gave them evening and dress uniforms... sharp and stylish, handsome things... so that they might promenade with their ladies on Saturday night and impress the hell out of everybody! He even gave them swords, so that people who were not impressed could be dealt with accordingly. And at the end of the 8th day, God looked down upon the earth and saw that it was good. But was God happy?

No! God was still not happy! Because in the course of His labors, He had forgotten one thing: He did not have a Marine uniform for himself. He thought about it, and thought about it, and finally God satisfied Himself in knowing that, well... not everybody can be a Marine!

Patton & St. Peter

Most of you know that Patton was a well known Army General. What you may not know is that Patton hated Marines. As a matter of fact, he hated Marines so much that when he died and went to Heaven, he had only one request of St. Peter before entering: "St. Peter" said Patton "I am very happy to have made it to heaven, but before I come in you must tell me if there are any Marines in Heaven. I'm sick of them. They were always outdoing my Army troops and making us look bad. They always got all the credit as the best fighting force on earth. Now I want to spend eternity in peace, without Marines!" St. Peter chuckled slightly and said, "Patton, you don't have to worry about that. Marines are too wild and crazy for Heaven. We can't have them here, they make too much noise and cause a lot of trouble." With that, Patton gave a sigh of relief and went on in to Heaven. He decided to take a tour around to see his new eternal home. Patton saw all the wondrous beauties and was smiling and whistling. Then he turned the corner onto Main Street and he saw it. He became furious and went running back to the gates of Heaven. "St. Peter!" cried Patton "You promised me there were no Marines in Heaven, but I was just on Main Street and I saw a Marine standing tall and proud in his Dress Blues and shiny shoes. Right there in front of my own eyes!" St. Peter chuckled to himself and said, "Patton, calm down, that's not a Marine, I told you we can't have them in Heaven. That's God, he just thinks he's a Marine."

Hispanic Real Estate Agents, The Housing Bubble, And Beans For Breakfast

Posted By James Fulford On 8 August 2008 @ 3:39 In General | Comments Disabled

Steve Sailer pointed out that many of the agents selling subprime mortgages on overpriced houses to the vulnerable immigrant community were Hispanic themselves–see [1] Spanish Language Radio Stations Hit Hard By Drying Up Of Zero Down Mortgages.

Cesar Dias and Jorge Espino used to sell real estate in Stockton, California, [2] the forclosure capital of the nation, now they run a business called [3] Repo Home Tours, which runs bus tours around Stockton, for buyers looking to snap homes up cheap.

And in the Housing Bubble Hall of Shame®, there’s a post about a guy named Chris Nuñez, who would be the poster boy for the “Hispanic Real Estate Agent” Bubble Guy..

[5] Chris Nunez, CPS Real Estate
Chris is a super realtor in Santa Rosa, CA. He is renowned for pushing interest-only loans on people that CANNOT afford them. Once these loans reset, he’s going to have some disappointed customers, such the [6] Carnes family that took out a $700K, interest only loan to purchase a home they “had to have”–household income: $100K. And as he tells his clients, “I eat beans like you in the morning.” Watch the video and enjoy!
[7] Video: Past Due & Pay Day (video at [8] YouTube)
[9] Transcript: Past Due & Pay Day

“I eat beans like you in the morning” is a specific ethnic appeal to Hispanic clients, the kind of thing that HUD targets for consent decrees when it happens in real estate ads. But the “diversity recession” may force him and his cliens to eat beans three times a day.

Y'know, to me, this smacks of the same type of 'historical revisionism' that the slavery reparations movement tries for - every "affront" the minority group suffers is due to all white people, everywhere - nevermind that MEMBERS OF THEIR OWN MINORITY take advantage of them - with slavery reparations, it was tribal leaders; with Hispanics,
from the 'coyotes' who smuggle them across the border, to the issuance of matriculas consular, to snake oil salemen such as Sr. Nunez, NONE are held accountable for their behavior - it's ALL the fault of the evil Yanquis ........................................

OK, Sportsfans ............................................

In line with LawDog & Matt G., I'm providing a link for a charity raffle - Larry Correia is offering a pink AR-15 - go here.

It's a good cause, and, as Matt G. notes, it's a good price for a chance at a one-of-a-kind firearm .......................... and as LawDog says, 'save the sweater kittens!'
