  • Vanity - NFL, MLB....Olympics next?

    09/25/2017 2:29:30 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 11 replies
    Well.......the Flag/Anthem America haters have had their moments of glory for themselves and their open display of hate for their country. One can only guess when the playing of the USA National Anthem and the raising of the USA Flag will be mocked and then banned from being played and displayed at upcoming Olympic Games. America...you have lost your soul and, I fear lost your country in the process. When football replaces the status, history, culture of the once mighty USA, the future for our country, its children, its opportunities is greatly diminished. The blame, IMHO, rests somewhat with the...
  • Vanity - Obama/Flag/Anthem Haters, two birds of a feather.

    Facts: Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus, The NAACP, the Democrat Party, did absolutely zero good to improve the lives of millions of African-Americans and other minority groups. The flag/anthem haters.....all of them have not saved one Black life in Chicago where Blacks kill and wound Blacks every minute of every day!!! Now of course, wrongly, most Black Americans still worship Barack Hussein Obama whose lineage comes from Kenyan Radical Muslim Slave & Sex Traffic Traders on the East Coast of Sub-Sahara, Africa. His father was a master womanizer and abuser...plus an uncontrollable madman, drunk. Fact is: Obama tried his best...

  • Blame progressive republicans for the 16th amendment

    09/23/2017 10:06:15 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 9 replies
    Far too often, articles or books are written about how bad the 16th amendment is(which it absolutely is) but then the authors turn around and point to Woodrow Wilson. This is historical malpractice. It is said that 42 states ratified the 16th amendment, and 40 of those did so prior to March 4, 1913, which was when Wilson was inaugurated. Massachusetts ratified the 16th on the same day, March 4th, and New Hampshire followed a few days later on March 7th. So let me get this straight: Woodrow Wilson as president was so strong and powerful that he reached back...
  • Vanity - John (SATAN) McCain, the !00% Political Whore and Disloyal American.

    09/23/2017 8:56:25 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 52 replies
    Senator, John McCain is much like Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Saddam Hussein, Idi Amen, Nero, Caligula, etc. Today he basks in the glory in denying the people of Arizona and the United States of America the opportunity to receive a vast improvement in their healthcare access. His hate, like those mentioned above is filled with the same hate and envy that all of these misfit human beings brought to earth. He is the worst of political whores and certainly has no loyalty to anyone but himself. History will not be kind to him...he will perish to eternity as a failed human...

    BBC ^ | 9.22.2017 | staff reporter
    Workers in Moscow have cut out part of a new monument to a Russian creator of the world famous AK-47 assault rifle because a weapon depicted on the statue was actually a German-designed firearm. Mikhail Kalashnikov's monument was opened this week to great fanfare by government officials and members of the Russian Orthodox Church. But arms experts said a drawing on the base of the statue showed the StG 44 rifle used by the Nazis during WWII. It was removed by an angle grinder.

    Are Medal of Honor recipients awarded the citation in the uniform they earned it in or the rank they retired as? I did a number of searches asking this question in several different ways and can't find an answer. If you can provide a link, I'd greatly appreciate it.

  • Alec Ramsay's "Farewell to Lochabor" from Henry Livingston's Music Manuscript - late 19th century

    Alec Ramsay's "Farewell to Lochabor." This is a more interesting piece, one of my favorites, from Henry Livingston, Jr.'s Music Manuscript. I transcribed it using the computer program Mozart. The fact that Henry changes Ramsay's heroine from Jean to Jane, the name of his second wife, dates the page to after 1793. Manuscript Book

  • Vanity - Mitch McConnell....The maJority senate leader?

    09/21/2017 5:07:24 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 18 replies
    Mitch McConnell, is he the Republican Majority Senate Leader or a weak sister hiding in the closet of do and accomplish nothing productive or measurable. The great Senate majority leaders in American history were all leaders who kept their caucuses in line and ordered them to vote as guided by their leadership. Mitch McConnell is far from being one of these. He is weak, powerless and lets his caucus run all over him as they desire. Without further verbage or ado, I expect McConnell to do a 180 degree turn and "ORDER", Senators, Paul, Collins, Murkowski & that low life,...

    U.S. Airlines are vying for attention as the Boeing 747 leaves their fleets, just as they did when it entered their fleets in 1970. And the world’s aviation geeks are watching closely. United announced Monday that its final Boeing 747 flight will take place Nov. 7 with a celebratory recreation of its first United flight from San Francisco to Honolulu. Twenty-eight minutes later, at 3:47 p.m. Monday, Delta announced that it recently operated its final Boeing 747 Tokyo Narita-Honolulu flight (on Sept. 5), and that it had operated what were thought to be the final domestic 747 flights from Honolulu...
  • Attrition: Americans Stiff The Turks

    Stratgy Page ^ | 20 Sept 2017
    Another sign of the worsening U.S. relations with Turkey occurred recently when the Americans refused a Turkish request to provide (or allow Turkey to recruit) pilot instructors to help rebuild the depleted ranks of Turkish F-16 pilots. Pakistan was the only major F-16 user that agreed to provide some pilot instructors but the Americans blocked that as well. This is a serious problem for the Turkish Air Force because the July 2016 coup attempt in Turkey had many victims and one of the lesser known ones was the effectiveness of Turkish fighter fleet. While few F-16 pilots took part in...

    The Columbia University Marxist Association recently praised Venezuela's “revolutionary mass movement” and “tremendous gains in social programs and communal self government.” The group dedicated its first meeting of the semester Monday to uncovering the “reality” of Venezuela’s government, arguing that this is needed because “capitalist media” only promotes “scare stories” about the socialist regime.

    Well.....ho-hum, the much media promoted Hillary Clinton tome has run out-of-steam a tiny bit more then a week from its release date. There is not much to say or comment on, other then to take note of all the fools that actually spent their money on "something of no substance whatsoever". At the end of the day the free market rules and, all the bulk buying and positive ranting have done zilch to sell the failed book of failed Hillary Clinton. All Ms. Clinton really needed to do was to look in the mirror and she would have discovered her...
