Odd Things I Think of...

I've often said that my mind is a scary place. Strange thoughts seem to pop in and they seem so obvious that I don't know why I don't hear them anywhere else. I had one this morning while in the shower...

Why is it that the Enron execs have been vilified and prosecuted on false charges, had their lives ruined by untruths and false evidence, yet Al Gore is awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for his false analysis of Global Warming? Better yet, why was Bernie Madoff imprisoned (rightly so) for conning millions of dollars from people, yet Al Gore is still walking around a free man while STILL conning millions of dollars from people.

In the old days, that snake oil salesman would have been tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail.

WHat do you think?

USAF's Latest Multi-role Strike Aircraft

As some of you know, Congress recently voted to cut funding for the F-22 Raptor. Now the Raptor became operational right as I was retiring from the AF, so I never had any first hand experience with this jet. However, my Squid-in-law is stationed at Norfolk which is just down the road from Langley AFB where the Raptor nests. I've been out there a few times and all the folks I've talked to seem very impressed with the Raptor; both maintainers and pilots.

Be that as it may, the funding is cut. Done. Finito. So what are we supposed to do for air superiority now?

I've been able to smuggle out a photo of the Top Secret aircraft the Obama administration is pinning it's air superiority hopes on. It's a modified version of the aging, but still formidable F-15 Eagle. The newest version of the Eagle, called the Eaglet, is much smaller than it's mother, with a smaller payload. However, due to the size and construction materials, it is by far the stealthiest aircraft ever made. Virtually invisible to all radar and has no heat signature.

It does have a very limited range, both in weaponry and airborne endurance. However, the cost is a minuscule.

According to an anonymous administration official "...we can equip hundreds of squadrons with the Eaglet for less than a single F-22." "This aircraft fulfils the Commander and Chiefs wishes for an inexpensive and ineffective replacement for the horrific killing machines we've used to force our will around the globe." he said.

Be Afraid; Be Very Afraid...

I found this link over on ALa's site.

Talk about a scary doll. Wait, I guess it's an Action Figure, but someone needs to tell the manufacturers that it would be more appropriately called an INACTION figure. Although I find it funny that for someone who has shown little or no stomach for action against our enemies, he sure is portrayed as Billy-bad-ass. Should that be Barry-bad-ass? Just wonderin...

Give Me a F'ing Break

Just when I think the people of the world can't get any dumber, something like this happens.

In light of the Norwegian Nobel Committee's most recent decision to give president (lowercase p used on purpose) O the Nobel Peace Prize; I honestly believe it will now be changing the name to the Nobel Piece-O-shite Prize.

Awww, and they didn't want to wake his highness up. How thoughtful.

What a fucking joke the NPP has become.


The lovely Cara has a terrific post on this. She puts it in a way I wanted to, but that's the difference between a writer (Cara) and a reader (Moi).


I've heard this at several places, but had to repeat it...

Obama awarded the Heisman Trophy for watching a college football game.

Stay tuned for coverage of his upcoming awards; his Tony, his Grammy, his Sainthood, his Emmy, his Clio, his Super Bowl Ring...
