WWII Submarine

USS Pampanito tied up in San Francisco and maintained as part of the Maritime Museum. They have an online virtual tour that is pretty awesome. I have taken the walk thru twice and been impressed by the utter lack of space on board. (Even less for an average sized bear like me)

Check it out!

You would think they ...... ahh, never mind.

Rule Britania.....

Selling off the Royal Navy in an internet auction? Yup.

The Royal Navy is selling HMS Invincible, a storied aircraft carrier, in an Internet auction. I don’t know whether to be more melancholy over the decline of the once-great Royal Navy, or to laugh at the postmodern madness of it all.

Lord Nelson R.I. P. , when you stop spinning.

Monday's Pun(s) !!!

Experts say the cost of funerals have risen by 50%, they blame it on the cost of living.

The book of incantations was useless. The author had failed to run a spell check.

The ex-lumberjack will be sawly missed.

L.A. Board: Ban Plastic Bags!

Next week, on Nov. 16, the County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors will vote on whether or not to ban plastic shopping bags. Nothing we use for 5 minutes should be allowed to pollute for 500 years. Every year California uses 19 billion plastic bags and 160,000 tons of take out Styrofoam containers. Los Angeles alone uses 6 billion bags. Most of this is ending up in our landfills and ocean.

Blah, blah, blah......wasn't it just a few years ago that we "banned" paper bags to Save The Trees! What's up with that? Was somebody wrong? Did I miss the apology??

George Carlin uses common sense and addresses the issue far better than I can.


What great show! Carousing around Alaska with Sarah Palin. Mark Burnett has another hit on his hands with the future President sharing her views and the beauty of Alaska.

UPDATE: Libtard Alert! Libtard Alert! (Hat Tip to the BlogProf) Palin "appeared" to fish to close to the bears! OMG! Call Fish & Game!
Has anybody heard of telephoto lenses?

National Opt Out Day...

November 24th, as many of you already know, is National Opt-Out Day, when airline passengers should refuse to submit themselves to those privacy-invading, genital-picture-taking, radiation-delivering back-scatter imaging machines now installed at many American airports. By telling the TSA agents in charge that you "opt-out" out of the back-scatter (at which point, the TSA agents, if my experience is typical, will yell, "We got an opt-out!," causing everyone standing on the TSA Checkpoint Coiled Line of Death to look at you funny), you will be subjecting yourself to a fairly thorough frisking, as detailed in this post.

Frisk a nun...prn. We are in great hands here folks.

Monday's Pun(s) !!!

It happened 24 hours ago but it felt like yesterday.

A new type of broom came out, it is sweeping the nation.

She had a boyfriend with a wooden leg, but broke it off.


Patrick H. Caddell has been a hero of mine for a long time. Back when I was a wee lad studying poli sci and righting the wrongs of the world, old Patrick was mucking around on the McGovern campaign and had wide influence on Jimmy Carters campaign. The guy is brilliant. I mean look what he had to work with and ...well you get my drift. JIMMAH! became the 39th president. (1st Abject Failure of a President).

Now Pat was never a Kool Aide drinker of the Paul Begalla variety. He knew the course to get elected and took his clients there. As a pragmatist he has been lamenting the failed efforts of president Zero for some time. He long ago predicted the "shellacking" that just occurred, and has otherwise been a pain in the rear for the true believers of the Democratic Left. He has begged them to show restraint and promote longevity in office. They ignored him.

Well now he has really stepped in it. He has co signed a letter calling out president Zero to take one for the team and ...wait for it....NOT run in 2012. For the good of the world. One and Done.

Under these circumstances, Obama has the opportunity to seize the high ground and the imagination of the nation once again, and to galvanize the public for the hard decisions that must be made. The only way he can do so, though, is by putting national interests ahead of personal or political ones.

To that end, we believe Obama should announce immediately that he will not be a candidate for reelection in 2012.

Obama himself once said to Diane Sawyer: "I'd rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president." He now has the chance to deliver on that idea.

Balls. Big Balls

So What?

Just before they adjourned in October, Democratic lawmakers talked about returning to a "lame duck" session after the election with an ambitious to-do list.

But after losing at least 60 seats in the House and six in the Senate, the Democrats' lame duck ambitions appear to have fizzled

or as a friend is fond of saying....Boo Fricking Whoo.....
