   Allsogreat posted on Main Page The Lobby  An old cowboy walks into a barbershop in Red Lodge,
Montana for a shave and a haircut. He tells the barber
he can't get all his whiskers off because his cheeks
are wrinkled from age.

The barber gets a little wooden ball from a cup on the
shelf and tells the old cowboy to put it inside his
cheek to spread out the skin. When he's finished, the
old cowboy tells the barber that was the cleanest shave
he'd had in years, but he wanted to know what would
have happened if he had accidentally swallowed the
little ball. The barber replied, just bring it back in a
couple of days like everyone else does.

What They Did Seems Impossible!

During the 3-1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945,

"We the People of the U.S.A. " produced the following:

22 aircraft carriers
8 battleships
48 cruisers
349 destroyers
420 destroyer escorts
203 submarines
34 million tons of merchant ships
100,000 fighter aircraft
98,000 bombers
24,000 transport aircraft
58,000 training aircraft
93,000 tanks
257,000 artillery pieces
105,000 mortars
3,000,000 machine guns and
2,500,000 military trucks

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across Europe and the Pacific, developed the atomic bomb and, ultimately, conquered Germany and Japan.

It's worth noting that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama Administration couldn't even build a Health Care web site that worked. A lesson, of Professionals vs vastly inferior amateurs!....

   FlatCityGirl  Years ago when Tom Brokaw's "Greatest Generation" was first released, he was on the Don Imus radio show, which was televised on MSNBC at that time. It was a great interview, and at the end, Imus asked a question that I've never forgotten: "How did a generation that whined about nothing raise a generation that whines about everything"?

   FlatCityGirl  I don't know if this nation will ever be called upon to prove it, but I firmly believe that we could do it again if we had to.

Pearl Harbor notwithstanding, bailing Europe out of their troubles is what got us into the first two World Wars, and I’ve always believed that bailing Europe out again is what will get us into the next one.

Europe and Great Britain are under attack right now. Whether they recognize that fact is another matter all together. Is there a tipping point where the country/its citizens say, Enough? Or do they just continue down the PC Road and wake up one day and find that they no longer have a country and their women are not allowed to drive or show their uncovered faces in public?

Isn’t the same thing happening here?

Sooner or later, something is going to kick off another “World War.” My personal belief is that it will be Muslims who start it.

The Mulatto has ruined our relationship with most other countries in all hemispheres, while at the same time, putting the ability to wipe us out into the hands of those who wish to do so.

So far there seems to be one leader who is not allowing Muslims to take over, and that’s Putin.

   Iacta alea est  I love our country. But I greatly fear that we no longer have the stomach to do what our fathers and grandfathers did so long ago. And let's not forget the efforts of all the women who did lots of the factory work and military service either.

   RedWhiteBlue  I was just reading the list of stuff not made here any more and noticed that so many are now made in Mexico! So why is that country still so ''poor'' that we are so loaded up with illegals from that country? They should be a thriving wealthy country for all that production going on!!! What gives?

   Allsogreat posted on Main Page The Lobby  The young woman who submitted the
tech support message below (about her relationship to her husband ) presumably did it as a joke. Then she got a reply that was way too good to keep to herself. The tech support people's love advice was hilarious and genius!

The query:
Dear Tech Support,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slowdown in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under
Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as: NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf Clubs 4.1.

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and House cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do?

Signed,
Desperate

The response (that came weeks later out of the blue ):

Dear Desperate,
First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Please enter command: I thought you loved me.html and try to download Tears 6.2. Do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0, or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta version. Whatever you do, DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Mother-In-Law 1.0 as it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.

In addition, please do not attempt to re-install the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported
applications and will crash Husband 1.0. In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend Cooking 3.0.

Good Luck

   Safetydude  The Navy has to bring charges; Captains's Mast for non-judicial(Article-15 )punishment or a General Court Martial. He broke the law, no matter the mitigation.
With those charges in his personnel jacket, regardless of outcome, his career is finished.

   Allsogreat  I hope your article is correct....I think he broke a "RULE"....not necessarily a "LAW"...there are also rules about the care and safety of those personnel under your command....

   Safetydude  I can't speak for the Navy but based on my experience in the AF a DoD Directive is 'Law'. And our AFR's were based on those directives.

The DoD doesn't write regulations. A Directive is a basis for each service to write their branch specific regulation.
If you laid AF, Army and Navy Regulations side by side they all reflect what the DoD demands.

The Navy is in a cleft stick; if they choose to not press charges they may be in defiance of a DoDD and their own regulation. If they do charge him they have to bring in a finding of not guilty and possibly expunge all records to save his career.

I agree his action was heroic and DoDD 5210.56 should be rescinded, but in the meantime the Navy has to follow the 'law' otherwise there is no law.

My point was that a career may have been jeopardized because of a heroic act.
If the Navy chooses not to charge him there is no paperwork, all is forgotten, life goes on and he will be remembered as a hero.

I'll remember him as a hero who may have risked more than his career, he may have also risked his life.

   Allsogreat posted on Main Page The Lobby  ACTS 2:38 Conceal Carry & an Intruder.
You gotta love compassionate Christian Seniors.

A woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church services, when she was startled by an intruder.
She caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled: “Stop! Acts 2:38 !”

(Repent and be Baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins may be forgiven. )

The burglar stopped in his tracks.

The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.

As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar:
“Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you.”
“Scripture?” replied the burglar. “She said she had an Ax and Two 38's!”

   Safetydude  I'm on both sides of this issue.
As Christian, I support her right to exercise her religious freedom and as a retired senior NCO I have to support her Supervisor and her Commanders.
LCpl Sterling had many, many avenues to deal with with this issue. One of them was not to argue with a senior NCO.
Once that starts, in order to preserve the command authority, she was bound to lose. She should have known that since as a LCpl she was in the chain of command.

I think there is more to this story...I think she wanted out and someone gave her bad advise.
I'll bet she thought she would get a 'General Discharge Under Honorable Conditions', not a BCD and she could go on her way.

I'm sure her Commander offered an 'Article 15', Nonjudicial Punishment, which she must have refused and asked for a general Court-Martial.
