Memorial Day 2010

Some gave all......

The Bear Clan began the weekend by placing flags on the graves at Fort Rosecrans.  Up at dawn on Saturday with 1500 other Boy Scouts doing this yearly task.  It is inspiring to watch the waves of scouts descend down the gently rolling hills of the cemetery in the early morning haze.  Pausing at each grave to place a flag and say a long forgotten name.  Me?  I look for the Michigan boys, because somebodies gotta take care of em. Our last stop is Grandpa's grave, where we place a final flag and spend some time with him.
Go out today, give thanks and remember our heroes, past and present, this weekend.  Carry on.

el presidente Zero, Our Hero, was in San Francisco last night to attend a fundraiser for Barbara "The Check Bouncer" Boxer.  The get to together at the Fairmount went well according to the main stream media (MSM).  However, it seems the MSM's missed some of the folks out front.  Check out the video from SF

I am sure we will hear all about this tonight on the news. Confident. Absolutely. Certain.

I ahhhh....
...don't know em.

But, I like his message. 
The Illusion of Leadership....! 

 Mary Katherine Ham spanks one out of the park over at the Weekly Standard.  On president Zeros decision, (flip flop) to send the National Gaurd to the border to help Arizona with that non problem.

Judging Obama's Call for National Guard on the Border by Obama's Criteria

You know, I think the administration's latest move on the border is reflective of a "troubling trend in our society.""fundamentally unfair," and "invites profiling."  The plan is
It's "misguided," the basis for "real concerns" that make it "fundamental" to a human-rights discussion with the Chinese. I'm pretty sure it's unconstitutional and certainly "unfortunate," and should be challenged with a lawsuit as soon as possible. 
Protesters should probably get out there and decry the "police state," "fascist," "Nazi" proclivities of the Obama administration, and add some vandalism for good measure (all in the name of civil debate, of course).
Sure, I haven't really done any research into the call for National Guard troops, the dangers that necessitated the call, or what their function and limitations will be in enforcing the border.

Oh. The. Irony.

If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane....

Best of Luck Stevie.

THE captain has left the team.  It will be announced today that Steve Yzermen will be named General Manager of the Tampa Bay Lightening.  The Hall of Fame player and longtime Detroit captain, is leaving his job in the Red Wings front office for the Lightning. 

Greatest Captain ever.  Thanks for the memories and best of luck with the Lightening.

Lost at Sea

Tragedy at sea.  Pillar Point to San Francisco....husband and wife lost overboard with the yacht washing up near the Cliff House.  

Rough time of year off of the Nor Cal coast.  Be careful out there.

Monday's Pun(s) !!!

I was going to buy a book on phobias, but I was afraid it wouldn't help me.

There was once a cross-eyed teacher who couldn't control his pupils.

It is tough to do inventories in Afghanistan because of the tally ban.

Olde Friends....

Moved to Australia and started a little bizzness.  

Good on em!
Monday's Pun(s)

A man was driving on an icy, abandoned road when he noticed a road sign with half of it torn clean off. 'That's a bad sign' he thought to himself.

We were going to ship a truck load of food, but we found it just wasn't palatable.

What do you call a melon that's not allowed to get married? Can't elope.

Armed Forces Day!

Y'all know that right? 
Thank a soldier for their service. Buy them a cuppa, pay a bridge toll or just stop and say "Thanks".
Good On Ya!

Jessica Watson sailed her mighty pink boat around the world.  She arrived home yesterday, docking at the Sidney Opera house.  A 16-year-old Australian who spent seven months at sea sailed across the finish line of her round-the-world journey Saturday, becoming the youngest sailor to circle the globe solo, nonstop and unassisted.
Read that the globe, solo, nonstop and unassisted....  Holy Jumpin!  What has your 16 year old done of late?  Yeah, mine either.

What a great accomplishment.  Welcome home!

Read the Bill?

We don't need to read no stinkin bill....

Heavy Metal!

 USN Reagan, USN Nimitz & USN Vinson dockside in Sandy Eggo

Senatorial candidate John "I'm Not A Maverick" McCain, is in a tough race with my olde pal JD Hayworth.  JD has written books and speak frequently about sealing the border.  So, the Maverick McCain releases an ad stating he has been tough on immigration.  Really?  Jaw droppingly wrong, patent pandering.  

Recall, McCain is the guy that sponsored the last immigration/amnesty bill with his protege Sen. Lindsey Gramnesty.   This is not a flip flop....its a flop.  So here they are discussing it on the Morning Joe.  Even Arizona congressman John Shaddeg is laughing at McCain.

You should be too!  


Varsity style........

It's Aloha Friday...... work till Monday!!!

Doo de doo, de doo, de doo ...

Building a deck...continues, last Lacrosse game of the year, NYS Football & Poe's gone a camping. Y'all have a great weekend!

Great Merciful Zeus: Ann Coulter Might Just Turn Us Straight!!


Alert tee-shirt vendors and the NYPD can’t be everywhere.

The Department of Homeland Security’s best strategy for keeping Americans safe should not be to “hope Muslims’ bombs fail” or depend upon alert civilians to spot smoke coming from cars or people’s underpants.

Since Muslims are just about the only group of people currently trying to kill Americans, perhaps a security policy at airports should be directed towards preventing Muslims from murdering people.

Now, for just a moment, appreciate the Bizarroworld we currently live in:
(1) We are gay guys in Boystown who, until 2008, detested Ann Coulter
(2) We are now reading Ann Coulter
(3) We agree with every damn word Ann Coulter says
(4) Sometimes, we think we’ve actually moved to the right of Ann Coulter
It’s Change we might not be able to believe in, but change the current DNC and White House forced upon on.

Great little article.  Follow the Link and read the whole enchilada.  I love Ann.

If you have been to camp you have met this guy.


This weekend on Phoenix’ KFYI, radio host Terry Gilberg interviewed Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu. During the interview, he conveyed a remarkable statistic:

Last month alone, just in one patrol region, we had sixty-four pursuits. That means people who were driving a vehicle, failed to yield, took off like a bat out of hell, running red lights, creating traffic wrecks, numerous people were killed in these wrecks over the last several months, and who are these people? Not one of them was a U.S. citizen.

Prolly just a staistical anomaly. Yeah, an anomaly. That's it.

Tom Watson

Good article that discusses his long career in golf.  Here is a tidbit that caught my eye.

“I'm a great believer in the truism that, if you are not liberal when you are 19, there is something wrong with your heart, and that if you are not conservative when you are 40, then there is something wrong with your head,” Watson said. 
Sink O De Mayo

Well, so much for my having figured out the auto posting process.  Here it is a day late.

I hope your margarita's were timely delivered!

Rush is Right!
Obama's Katrina
Why has it taken 8 days to mobilize the Feds?  
and, and, and the Justice Department???  WTH are a bunch of lawyers gonna do?


Now, let me get this straight.....The Democrats passed a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it, but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a President, that also hasn't read it, and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief, who didn't pay his taxes…all to be overseen by a surgeon general, who is obese, and financed by a country, that's nearly broke.

And the American public is against it? Weird…
