Didn’t Get a Thank-you
Author: Raine    Date: 03/21/2019 13:11:09

He didn't thank him. A dead war Hero didn't that the occupant of the white house for his funeral. This is not a joke, it's evil.

Happy Spring
Author: BobR    Date: 03/20/2019 12:52:23

 
Spring has sprung, the grass has rizz
I wonder where the birdies is?
The birds is on the wing
On the wing? - well that's absurd
I thought the wings was on the bird?


Yes, today is the first day of spring. It's been a cold rainy/snowy 6 weeks since groundhog day. In this neck of the woods, it's sunny and - while not exactly warm - warmer than it was several weeks ago. Our yard is actually dry.

That - along with snow melt and ice dams - has caused major flooding. Even an Air Force base in Nebraska was flooded.

Good Morning.

We'll jump right in this morning and think about politics. Like everything else, even veterans have aligned themselves along policy lines. We're all familiar with the hard-left Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. Liberals in military uniform can be a rare thing, but IAVA is but one voice among the chorus.

Good Morning.

Take a look at this handsome bird.

It’s the de Havilland Comet.

Here in the United States, we tend to think we invented everything that’s important, but it was actually the venerable British aircraft company that fielded the first viable passenger jet.

The color of white.
Author: Raine    Date: 03/14/2019 13:16:39

It's Thursday and I spent a good part of my evening painting in the Studio. I am so happy and grateful to finally have space where I can nurture my creativity, and more importantly, get away from the shitshow that is supposed to running our country.

Gender Bias
Author: BobR    Date: 03/13/2019 12:55:35

The DA in MA charged 50 people yesterday in federal court as part of a long-running, nationwide $25 million conspiracy to illicitly gain admission for their children to top colleges and universities (see note 1). It's the type of story that is all too familiar - rich people trying to buy their way to the head of the line when they don't deserve it. What made this notable is the inclusion of 2 celebrities who were charged: Felicity Huffman and Lori Laughlin.

Good Morning.

It's a very quiet day on the veteran's front. Ordinarily, I'd categorize that as a good thing, but I'm afraid there may be something deeper at work here.
