    Jesus said “Take up my cross.” He expects a good Christian to suffer. Expect sickness, pain and suffering, and don’t be surprised if it comes from God. Your reward is not of this earth, its in the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Is that Larry Bond?

    Ventura didn’t sue the widow or the publisher, he sued the estate.

    I hope they left him some cash to pay the IRS. Because they’re going to want their share.

    What’s the chance that he got caught the first time he ever did anything like this?

    Just like cops getting caught on a cell phone camera, someone got away with this dozens of times before ever being caught.

    That’s going to turn out worse than the Opti-Grab.

    If the cops aren’t doing anything wrong, what do they have to be afraid of?

    Always question authority.

    Does anybody remember the story on The Blaze about “Fury” when it came out? Shia LaBeouf was quoted about getting religion after the movie but he was foul mouthed and vulgar about it. I saw the movie after I read the story and I realized LeBeouf was just pretending to be in character to promote the movie. He’s no more religious than my cat.

    I don’t claim to know what’s in Jolie’s mind, but this could just be a stunt to promote her movie. I hope I’m wrong.

    Good ole Gastonia. I grew up there and worked for the Gazette as a District Circulation Manager. Its grown up a little bit since I lived there, but its still a redneck town and a good place to get in a fight on a Saturday night.

    Mine favorite teacher was a P-47 (WWII) and B-57 (Vietnam) pilot. I remember once he dismissed the ladies from class a few minutes early and told us one of his war stories.
    He was on a night bombing mission in his B-57 when some VC were lit up by parachute flares. They were standing on the edge of a cliff taking a leak when he started a bomb run. They had no where to go, so they jumped off a 100 ft. cliff to their untimely demise. He ended getting shot down in his B-57 and broke his back. He was rescued by Air Force PJ’s.
    His favorite plane was the P-47. He returned from a WWII combat mission and told the crew chief to check the engine, it was running pretty rough. When he walked to the front of the plane he saw that two of the cylinders had been shot away.

    Clarksville, TN is home to Fort Campbell. 101st Airborne, Rangers, 160th SOAR…(Disclaimer: Ft. Campbell is known as being located in KY, but that’s because because the base crosses the state line and the Post Office is in KY.)

    Clarksville is also ranked as one of the least expensive places to live in the US. It’s a typical Army town with strip clubs, pawn shops and the usual predators who go after young guys and gals out on their own for the first time. For some reason people don’t leave there after they retire. Its not a bad place at all, and the downtown is a nice place to walk around. The crime rate is OK, the weather is OK, the schools are OK.

    There’s a University named after a former Governor, called Austin Peay State University. Their favorite chant is “Let’s go Peay!” (Say it out loud, you’ll get it.)

    I know a lot of vets who live in Clarksville and make the daily commute to Nashville. I’m not sure why, it’s an unremarkable town. Nothing bad about it, maybe they prefer it because its an inexpensive place to live and they can shop at the PX and Commissary.

    I travel to Clarksville to work a couple of times a week. It’s a nice place, but there’s plenty of other places I’d prefer to live.

    It won’t be a 1911. Too heavy and a low cartridge capacity.

    It won’t be a Glock, the Feds mandate an external safety (and not the thing on the trigger.)

    It will be polymer, 9mm or .45, high capacity with an ambidextrous external thumb safety, a rail for accessories, and a grip size adjustable by adding backstrap panels.

    Frankly, with the sequester still affecting the DOD’s budget, they need to stick with the M9. Revisit spending money when we actually have money to spend.

    I disagree. Pantaleo used excessive force but remember he was the only one charged, and the other officers were given immunity for their testimony.

    I think the officer who was pushing down on Garner’s neck and chest was more responsible than Pantaleo was. But he wasn’t charged.

    So Espinosa has video evidence of a crime on her phone and the police tell her to delete it?

    Destruction of evidence is a serious crime. Too bad she didn’t know there are programs she could have used to recover the video. I’m sure its too late now.

    Captain.Dakkar, those same A-7′s went to the 4450th at Nellis AFB after they left EAFB. Since the F-117′s only flew at night the pilots flew the old A-7 during the day.

    Since nobody knew what we did in the 4450th, we had to keep them guessing. There was a travel pod that the paint shop had painted up radiation symbols and flashing lights that we could hang on one of the A-7′s. We would scare the fuel truck drivers by threatening them with court martial if they ever told anybody what they saw.

    Those poor guys didn’t know whether to shat or go blind.

    The A-10 is probably one of the most cost effective and versatile pieces of military hardware the Pentagon has ever purchased.

    For all those eagle and star wearing bean counters in the Puzzle Palace sitting on their butts wondering how to dazzle Congress with their latest Power Point presentation, I suggest you get within rock throwing distance of ISIS or Al-Queda and call for close air support. Then decide if you want a fast mover who wants to drop from 20,000 feet or a real airplane with a pilot who is going to use his Mk. 1 eyeball to see where the bomb needs to fall.

    Pet peeve alert. The word “media” is plural. “Medium” is singular.

    So when a journalist can’t even get basic English correct in the title “What the Media Gets Wrong About Israel,” it gets under my skin.

    The first jet I worked on in my military career was the A-10. (If you look at my avatar you can guess what squadron it was.)

    By the end of the Gulf War, the A-10 was known to its pilots as the RFOA-10. That’s reconnaissance, fighter, observation and attack aircraft. With its long loiter time and low level, slow speed capability, it was tasked for reconnaissance and observation sorties when no other aircraft could do the job. The A for attack is a gimme, but what about the F for fighter?

    Two A-10 pilots got air-to-air kills in the Gulf War, while the high speed, pointy nosed F-16′s had none. And believe me, the A-10 pilots let the Viper pilots know it.

    Flying Tigers, baby. All the way.
