Amazing tale of a desperate WWII pilot’s encounter with a German flying ace
Post Date: 2012-12-09 09:13:53 by A K A Stone
On Dec. 20, 1943, a young American bomber pilot named Charlie Brown found himself somewhere over Germany, struggling to keep his plane aloft with just one of its four engines still working. They were returning from their first mission as a unit, the successful bombing of a German munitions factory. Of his crew members, one was dead and six wounded, and 2nd Lt. Brown was alone in his cockpit, the three unharmed men tending to the others. Browns B-17 had been attacked by 15 German planes and left for dead, and Brown himself had been knocked out in the assault, regaining consciousness in just enough time to pull the plane out of a near-fatal nose dive. Every single time you go up, ...
PETA Crashes Biker Gathering Not to be missed

Try to read this without laughing out loud… H/T Mike Hoy
What a wonderful coming together of two diverse groups! We need more gatherings where the idiot activists are given warm, moist, aromatic welcomes like this one. This is why PETA usually protests women wearing fur rather than bikers wearing leather. Sounds to me like the old saying, “you mess with the bull, and you get the horns”. Gee, I guess these characters thought that Bikers where going to be politically correct like the rest of the wimpy world.

Egypt's Morsi Annuls Orders Giving Him Sweeping Powers, But Keeps Dec. 15 Constitution Vote
Post Date: 2012-12-08 19:05:47 by Brian S
CAIRO -- Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi on Saturday issued a decree annulling the most controversial parts of earlier orders that granted him sweeping powers, including the ability to make laws and decisions that are not subject to judicial reviews. The earlier orders had led to three weeks of violent clashes between Morsi supporters and the political opposition. The president no longer has absolute powers, but his government's draft constitution will stand in its current form and will not be subject to change before a referendum set for Dec. 15, NBC's Ayman Mohyeldin reported from Cairo. The new declaration still calls for the referendum to go ahead as scheduled, but the new ...

Rand Paul Foreign Policy Speech and Trip to Israel Announced
Post Date: 2012-12-08 18:32:33 by Brian S
Already mentioned as a 2016 presidential hopeful, Kentucky US Senator Rand Paul is planning a trip to Israel and Jordan. According to the UK Telegraphs Tim Stanley, Senator Paul is also preparing to give a foreign policy address in the near future. The trip and speech may suggest a few things. The most obvious is that Paul is seriously thinking about a presidential run and the trip to Israel is almost obligatory when the strongest base of support for his party comes from evangelical Christians. Also, as a presidential contender, Paul is trying to show that he is not a clone of his father, retiring Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), and that he is willing to take positions aligned with the more ...

The Royal Presidency: Obama lives better than kings From the New York Daily News: Snooki Gives Kate Middleton Advice on Being a New Parent. Great! Maybe Kate could return the favor and give Snooki and her fellow Americans some advice. About fiscal prudence, for example. Say what you like about a high-living, big-spending, bloated, decadent, parasitical, wastrel monarchy, but, compared to the citizen-executive of a republic of limited government, its a bargain. So, while the lovely Duchess of Cambridge nurses her baby bump, the equally radiant president of the United States nurses his ever more swollen debt belly.

Israel promised to respond to the UN General Assembly's recognition of Palestine as a state, in violation of the Oslo Agreement, by building an additional 3,000 settlement units on land claimed by the Palestinians. This immediately prompted cries from the Arab League-dominated UN about Israel's "expansionist" policies requiring immediate UN intervention. The UN General Assembly voted to recognize Palestine based on the pre-1967 borders. If they are pre-1967 borders, then what does that mean? It means the borders which existed prior to the Six Days War, which means the borders as they existed in 1948. Let's fire up the WayBack Machine and revisit how the State of ...
Charlie Crist Formally Joins Democrats To Make Final Split From GOP
Post Date: 2012-12-08 11:26:31 by Brian S
Former Florida governor Charlie Crist has completed his political conversion, announcing on Twitter that he has joined the Democrats as a result of the Republican party's swing to the right. The one-time GOP politician, who ran unsuccessfully for the US Senate as an independent, had earlier signalled his support for President Barack Obama and campaigned on his behalf ahead of the November election. News that Crist has formalised the move to the Democratic party will prompt speculation that he may lobby for a run at his old seat in the 2014 gubernatorial race in Florida. The 56-year-old politician tweeted out a picture of him and his wife Carole holding aloft a Florida voter ...
Buchanan: A Republican Retreat Or Rout?
Post Date: 2012-12-08 10:23:56 by Brian S
Given the election expectations raised by the Republican punditocracy that Mitt Romney was headed for a big victory the jolt of defeat hit especially hard. Now, what had seemed an orderly retreat has taken on the aspect of a rout, with Beltway Republicans calling for abandonment of fixed positions all along the line. After Senate candidates Richard Mourdock in Indiana and Todd Akin in Missouri bollixed the question of abortion in cases of rape, Republicans are being counseled to downgrade or dump the social issues. As young people seem to support same-sex marriage, why not be good libertarians and get on board? As Romney got 27 percent of the Hispanic vote, we must stop ...
Military Faces Though Questions About Targeting ‘Hostile’ Children In Afghanistan
Post Date: 2012-12-08 10:04:45 by Brian S
The US military is facing fresh questions over its targeting policy in Afghanistan after a senior army officer suggested that troops were on the lookout for children with potential hostile intent. In comments which legal experts and campaigners described as deeply troubling, army Lt Col Marion Carrington told the Marine Corp Times that children, as well as military-age males, had been identified as a potential threat because some were being used by the Taliban to assist in attacks against Afghan and coalition forces. It kind of opens our aperture, said Carrington, whose unit, 1st Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, was assisting ...

Less than 18 months after the US Army Corps of Engineers blasted gaps in a levee on the Mississippi River to cope with a record flood, it's getting ready to detonate explosives for the opposite reason to clear rock outcroppings on the bottom of the drought- depleted waterway so cargo can keep moving. "From one extreme to another in just the space of 12, 15, 16 months? It's just incredible," says Richard Heim, a drought specialist at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. The time last year, the drought in the continental US was largely confined to the its southern tier. Since mid-July, however, between 60 and 65 percent of the continental US has been ...

Republicans for Big Government [by Judge Andrew Napolitano]
Post Date: 2012-12-07 17:32:31 by Capitalist Eric
Do you know anyone who voted Republican this past election in order to further President Obamas big government agenda? Or is it more likely that Republican voters sought to advance a smaller version of the federal government? And if they did, why are Republican congressional leaders offering to help the president spend us into oblivion? I suspected that those questions might be asked when Mitt Romney was nominated to oppose Obama. My view of his campaign then and now has been that he presented a choice to the voters of big government versus bigger government, and bigger government prevailed. Romney argued during the campaign that he was at a disadvantage because the president had ...
