I had a 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler 429 Cobra Jet 4 speed that drove better at speeds greater than 100 mph. I also used high speed tires, which could account for the great ride. Loved that car..traded it for a ’74 GTO…big disappointment.

@Jacque: The question as to why “Gays” don’t hart their own organization? The answer is that they, Gays and Gay Supporters, want to pervert the Standing Clubs…especially the ones that “Ban” homosexuality. This is a sad day for the BSA. I saw it coming a while back…I WILL NOT support a group that goes against my beliefs. Or any Church that Supports the BSA.

Yes, she has. Another trip before Congress would be devastating.

Watch Lois run…She thinks this is a reward for keeping her mouth shut. However she didn’t play the game right and now she is a liability.

I would like to mention that the US Navy was very much involved in the “conflict”. HA(L)-3 was the first Navy Attack Helicopter Squadron. It was commissioned in South Viet Nam and decommissioned in 1973 when the drawback (withdrawal) happened. They fought hard to preserve the peaceful villages way of life, even if they was just coming out of the stone age. They suffered many hardships under the VC e, raise their chickens..and NVA. Just wanting to be left alone to grow their rice and chickens. The VC would come thru and take the young men for service, the young women for the amusement of the troops..It breaks my heart to think of leaving them to fend for themselves.

Webster’s Definition of Assault Rifle:
Military firearm that is chambered for ammunition of reduced size or propellant charge and has the capacity to switch between semiautomatic and fully automatic fire. Light and portable, yet able to deliver a high volume of fire with reasonable accuracy at modern combat ranges of 1,000–1,600 ft (300–500 m), assault rifles have become the standard infantry weapon of modern armies. Their ease of handling makes them ideal for mobile assault troops crowded into personnel carriers or helicopters, as well as for guerrilla fighters engaged in jungle or urban warfare. Widely used assault rifles are the U.S. M16, the Soviet Kalashnikov (the AK-47 and modernized versions), the Belgian FAL and FNC, and the German G3.

Maybe someone can explain to me the usefulness of FEMA. I could maybe understand if AA Federal Agency was on hand to hand out bottles water…But the reason you have insurance is to help you when your property is destroyed or damaged. I have no use for funding FEMA to rebuild/house/feed/etc people when a disaster strikes. NOT ONE Federal Employee (or FEMA employee) came to offer me thousands of dollars when my roof was destroyed by a hail storm. NOR have they been on hand after a tornado destroys a country home….What gives? Maybe it’s because home/business owners should have INSURANCE to cover these losses…Towns and Cities are yet another thought….
The government fails at everything it tries to do. They tax us one dollar for FEMA so they can give us back 40 cents when we are in need. And that is the best case scenario.
Milton Friedman said it best when he said:
"But the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert and in five years they have a sand shortage!"
Just like Katrina victims. The only reason many of them got back on their feet was because of churches and volunteers that helped them.
See short video of one volunteer group that helped out:

Reminded me of a story of a Lawyer that moved to a town that didn’t have one…This Lawyer almost starved to death until another Lawyer moved into town…

I’m confused….if a business can offer discounts to seniors and children…what is the difference, other that they are offering a discount to church going people. The Federal Laws that address discrimination does it based on race…and sex…and age…and (is there anything else?)

How did the municipal code 9-3.301 get on the books in the first place…What caused the city council to limit gatherings to three people..This is completely out of touch with reality. It also sounds like the voting population should vote with more caution. I can’t imagine having a governing body so full of it that they would actually vote in favor of such a code. I expect that some one complained and they dug up this little code to satisfy the complainee…

I would like to weigh in on this one. First, it has been 18+ months since this started, where the obvious question’s answer, which is, “Who ordered this operation”, has yet to be answered. With that answered, we can go to who knew about it. It is apparent that AG Holder is hiding the information that would bring this out into the open. The American People deserve to know, the family of Brian Terry deserve to know, who was/is responsible for Operation Fast and Furious. I heard in today’s ranting, that Holder should be given more time to deliver. He has had plenty of time to go through, pull out, copy and deliver the requested information or list the reason why it would not be made available. I have watched Holder in his testimony either answer with a no answer or deny. He appears so ignorant to what is going on in his area of responsibility that he should never been placed in that position. I believe that he is so good at lying, that it is second nature to him.
Bottom line is that someone ordered this operation and through it Agent Terry died. The people that “Blew the whistle” on it have been persecuted. Whoever are responsible needs to be brought out! The whistle blowers redeemed and order restored to the DOJ.

I thought I heard that there would be NO deductions…which I would think would not include having any portion of your income excluded. Now that would be fair..everyone pay the same, no gimmicks to lower your tax burden. Oh, would this just be a tax for w-2 income? How about 1099 type income. Inquiring minds want to know….

I believe that I will not accept your apology, Ms Williams. I will, however, take exception to your rants and raves about something that you should remain calm about. All you did was show your true inner-self and you let all those emotions run free, instead of keeping them under control. Better yet, if you would have us believe that you are genuine caring person, free of racism you would have calmly said “Let the Police handle it.” But no, you had to try and start a race riot and put a Bounty on another human being’s head. All I can say is “There is a reason that all Blacks and Whites cannot get along and you are it.”

I wanted to introduce my 2 cents on Blacks in Special Forces. In the mid to late 60′s, I was a member of a SAR TEAM that had 1 Black in 8. He DID run, jump and swim..He also was VERY Patriotic and a friend and buddy that was willing to train others. Of course, he always said that when the time came, if you didn’t move when the time to move came, his boot-print would be all over our backs as he WAS moving…LOL.. I spent 3 years at this assignment and cherish every minute of it.

Good News…I just captured my first of many deposits into the Bag-O-Farts. I’m sure it’s high quality, since I have had cauliflower recently..It may be good enough to generate 1,000 megawatt to off set the Coal Powered Plant…Updates to follow…

I know this is somewhat off subject, but…
Ok the truth has to come out…here it is. I do not personally think that every black person is African-American. To have that distinction, one would have to have been born in Africa and then immigrated to America. If it is PC to be African-American, then I am going to start a new classification…..Western European – Native American. Even though I was born in the US, my ancestors came from Europe and some were the original Americans. That put aside, I just said to myself, Obama is no more an African – American then I …Then I stopped and thought…perhaps he is..
