United States Air Force C-130 “Angel”

The C-130 Hercules is one of the workhorses of the U.S. Air Force.

Besides being a deadly weapon this beast of an aircraft has the ability to defend itself against some serious enemies.

Seeing this beautiful display will remind you that if you see the C-130 doing this you should either salute or run for your life.

Photos of an Air Force C-130 releasing flares to repel heat seeking missiles. The pattern formed by these “decoys” is how they got their name……..Angels.

It’s truly awesome because maneuvers are usually done in remote areas and over water, the general public does not get to see these exercises.

The flares are used as a defensive decoy to defeat enemy surface to air missiles shot at the Hercules. The angel wing smoke pattern is created by the vortices caused by the props and wings as the flares are fired.

As always we have one more thing to be thankful for: our men and women of the armed forces that live to protect us from any and all threats and make our great country safe!

Obituary: the death of common sense.

Today, we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend by the name of Common Sense.

No one really knows how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He selflessly devoted his life to service in schools; hospitals, homes, factories and offices, helping folks get jobs done without fanfare and foolishness.

For decades, petty rules, silly laws and frivolous lawsuits held no power over Common Sense. He was credited with cultivating such valued lessons as to know when to come in from rain, the early bird gets the worm and life isn’t always fair.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you earn), reliable parenting strategies (the adults are in charge, not the kids).

A veteran of the Industrial Revolution, the Great Depression, and the Technological Revolution, Common Sense survived cultural and educational trends including feminism, body piercing, whole language, phonics and new math.

But his health began to rapidly deteriorate when he became infected with the “if-it-only-helps-one-person-it’s-worth-it” virus. In recent decades, his waning strength proved no match for the ravages of overbearing federal legislation and regulations.

He watched in pain as good people became ruled by self-seeking lawyers and enlightened auditors. His health deteriorated even further when schools endlessly implemented zero tolerance policies; when reports were heard of six year old boys charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; when a teen was suspended for taking a swig of mouthwash after lunch; when a teacher was fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

It declined even further when schools had to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student but couldn’t inform the parent when a female student is pregnant or wants an abortion.

Finally, Common Sense lost his will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband, churches became businesses, criminals received better treatment than victims, and federal judges stuck their noses in everything from Boy Scouts to professional sports.

Common sense could only shake his head when a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a bit in her lap and was awarded a huge settlement.

As the end neared, Common Sense drifted in and out of logic but was kept informed of developments, regarding questionable regulations for asbestos, low-flow toilets, smart guns, global warming/climate change, the nurturing of Prohibition Laws and mandatory air bags.

Finally, when told that the homeowners association restricted exterior furniture only to that which enhanced property values, you couldn’t paint your house without approval and your mailboxes all had to be the same he breathed his last.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son Reason.

He is survived by three stepbrothers survive him: My Rights,  In Tolerance and Ima Whiner.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

This couldn’t be anymore true thanks to our liberal Democratic party. They spend too much time catering to the minority, the small loud obnoxious groups that are offended by EVERYTHING. They get up in the morning and look for something to be offended about. We must stop “whatever” if it offends even one person. We wouldn’t want them scarred for life. Yeah right!!!

The Average Military Man (not really average at all)

The average age of the military man is 19 years.

He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country.

He never really cared much for work and he would rather wax his own car than wash his father’s; but he has never collected unemployment either.

He’s a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student, pursued some form of sport activities, drives a ten year old jalopy, and has a steady girlfriend that either broke up with him when he left, or swears to be waiting when he returns from half a world away.

He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing and 155mm Howitzers.

He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was at home because he is working or fighting from before dawn to well after dusk.

He has trouble spelling, thus letter writing is a pain for him, but he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and reassemble it in less time in the dark.

He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and use either one effectively if he must.

He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional.

He can march until he is told to stop or stop until he is told to march.

He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation, but he is not without spirit or individual dignity.

He is self-sufficient. He has two sets of fatigues: he washes one and wears the other. He keeps his canteen full and his feet dry.

He sometimes forgets to brush his teeth, but never to clean his rifle.

He can cook his own meals, mend his own clothes, and fix his own hurts.

If you’re thirsty, he’ll share his water with you; if you are hungry, his food.

He’ll even split his ammunition with you in the midst of battle when you run low.

He has learned to use his hands like weapons and weapons like they were his hands.

He can save your life – or take it, because that is his job.

He will often do twice the work of a civilian, draw half the pay and still find ironic humor in it all.

He has seen more suffering and death then he should have in his short lifetime.

He has stood atop mountains of dead bodies, and helped to create them.

He has wept in public and in private, for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed.

He feels every note of the National Anthem vibrate through his body while at rigid attention, while tempering the burning desire to ‘square-away’ those around him who haven’t bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking. In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home, he defends their right to be disrespectful.

Just as did his Father, Grandfather, and Great-grandfather, he is paying the price for our freedom.

Beardless or not, he is not a boy.

He is the American Fighting Man that has kept this country free for over 200 years.

He has asked nothing in return, except our friendship and understanding.

Remember him, always, for he has earned our respect and admiration with his blood.

Student’s Prayer – A sad commentary on America.

As far as I know there is no author to this piece. 

Now I sit me down in school

Where praying is against the rule.

For this great nation under God

Finds mention of Him very odd.

If Scripture now the class recites,

It violates the Bill of Rights.

And anytime my head I bow

Becomes a federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple or orange or green,

That’s no offense, it’s the freedom scene.

The law is specific, the law is precise,

Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall

Might offend someone with no faith at all.

In silence alone we must meditate,

God’s name is prohibited by the State.

We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,

And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.

They’ve outlawed guns; but FIRST the Bible,

To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,

And the unwed daddy, our Senior King.

It’s “inappropriate” to teach right from wrong,

We’re taught that such “judgments” do not belong.

We can get our condoms, and birth controls,

Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.

But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,

No Word of God must reach this crowd.

It’s scary here I must confess,

When chaos reigns, the school’s a mess.

So, Lord, this silent plea I make:

Should I be shot, My soul please take.

This is a sad commentary on today’s America. We have let the liberal Democrats, the PARTY OF HATE twist and destroy the intention of the Constitution. There is no “separation of church and state” in the Constitution as 65% of the population believe. They have taken the protection of the church and freedom of religion and turned it into the hate and “separation” of all things of God from the public square. WE NEED TO DEMAND THEY STOP. WE NEED TO DEMAND THEY PUT THESE SYMBOLS BACK LIKE THE 10 COMMANDMENTS ETC. This is OUR country not the governments.

If Hillary had been elected she would have collected the guns and twisted the Constitution some more. We have the right to bear arms, no doubt about it. The PARTY OF HATE, The Democrats need those guns gone so they can control the over 300 million Americans. How else do you think Russia and China control millions and billions of people. THEY HAVE NO DAMN GUNS.

This is suppose to be a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

We need to take back our government and our country by ANY FORCE NEEDED. If that means with our “guns” then so be it. The damn Democrats could care less. They are so full of hate they are destroying themselves and this country. They thought they would continue with a Hillary win but SURPRISE she didn’t win.

The Democrats are so dumb they can’t see they are dying. The Democrats are so dumb they can’t see they have lost five of five special elections. And then there is the liberal media. While the Democrats drive the bus off the cliff the media is pushing it too.

It was just eight years ago the Democrats were crowing when Obama took the White House and the Democrats had both houses of Congress that the Republicans were dead. That the Republicans had no message, no leader, no direction and the Democrats were calling it the Party of NO. Now the Democrats have become the Party of Hell NO. AND now they have the same reputation as they claimed the Republicans had just eight years ago. NO message, NO leader, NO direction, nothing new to say etc. All they have is hate and divisiveness.

It only took the Democrats two years to help start the Republican comeback when they lost one house of Congress and then two years after that the other house of Congress. I am still not sure how Obama got reelected as I am sure others are mystified and stumped. Anyway, then in 2016 they also lost the presidency. So, it only took the Democrats eight years to bring back the Republicans to prominence. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Nancy Pelosi and Cryin’ Chuck Schumer and other Democrats.

They are hypocrites of the highest order. It doesn’t bother them that they are filmed/taped saying everything and then when they say they didn’t say it and are saying the opposite just days or weeks later they look like asses. Hell they are asses. It also doesn’t bother them they have a 17% approval rating. And why is that? Because dumb ass voters reelect them. These losers have an over 90% reelection rate. The voters vote for a name not a record because they are too damn lazy to research.

Like in my district that was represented by Michael Bilirakis. He decided to retire and here comes his son old Gus Bilirakis and what had he done previously? What experience did he have? Who the hell knows because the voters voted for the name. Many probably didn’t know this was a different person but saw the name and voted for old Gus. The same Gus that has been ignoring me for four damn years when I email them, he and his staff both.

THEY COULD CARE LESS ABOUT AMERICA AND AMERICANS.

Hawaii Five-0: Daniel Dae Kim Opens Up About ‘Sad’ Exit, ‘Honor’ of Playing Chin Ho

Kim and Park want the same money as the stars.

So the supporting cast think they deserve as much as the star? They should be grateful they aren’t living in the real world and making not nearly what they are for just standing in front of a camera and reciting lines someone else wrote. Now that is a tough job. Oh, yeah they are there sometimes 16 hours a day, yeah in their trailer eating food the show provides. Every job I ever worked everyone didn’t make the same money. These people need a reality check. Equality, come on.

Not the same as the original, not even close.

McGarrett was bad. He ALWAYS got his man, men or woman. As one character said “I’d hate to get a parking ticket here.”

  • Image result for original hawaii five 0

I use to watch the original Hawaii Five-0. This is a pale comparison but for those that don’t know the original this is cool. These guys in the new version are trying to be Starsky and Hutch in Hawaii.  Trying to get the younger viewers I suppose.

Here are some issues I had with this version which I don’t watch any more:

1. I can’t stand Scott Caan. I am sick of this twerp wearing his tie undone and his sleeves rolled up and then says he is trying to look professional? WTF. How many people in real life show up for work like this? Not cops.
2. In the same vein McGarrett asks him why he is wearing that tie. McGarrett tells him when it gets to be 100 degrees he will be sorry. Apparently the writers didn’t do any research. As far as I know it never gets or has gotten near 100 degrees EVER. In fact it rarely gets to 90 degrees or even 85, hello. I have been there numerous times over the years. In the original they ALL wore suits and ties unlike today’s Danny Williams/Scott Caan.
3. Can’t stand all the family crap, uncles, aunts, grandmas, ex-wives and children. This is a crime drama not Family Ties that solves crimes. The best show on TV is NCIS. It was three seasons before you found out Gibbs had a wife and child and then they are OCCASIONALLY mentioned over the years.
4. In this article it says Daniel Dae Kim’s character goes to start San Francisco 50. HELLO. It is Hawaii Five-0 because Hawaii was the 50th state. This is why Hollywood continues to make sequels and remakes because they don’t know what the hell they are doing and have no imagination. They apparently don’t do any research either. Apparently a bunch of college kids are the writers that drank their way through college.
5. Danny’s daughter calls him Dano because she couldn’t say Danny or so the story goes thus eliminating one of the great TV lines ever. “Book ’em Dano.” Why the hell would she be calling her father Danny or Dano? Not daddy, da da, pops etc. Dano? Come on.
6. Grace Park can’t weigh more than 80 pounds and yet she is fighting and throwing men around. Come on that is BS. She might not even weigh 80 pounds.
7. Why are they using Danny’s car for work and McGarrett drives it?
