    Lesson to be learned from our resolute forefathers…..
    Nuke mecca. Still needs to be done.

    • Yeah we use to call this (in Hawaii) “Slap a Jap Day”, but that was then. Now we need to call it something like “Obamination Day, where Christians are being persecuted and Veterans are turning in their graves over the spent BLOOD freely given to protect our Liberty!”
      In God we Trust and Obama we rust!
      Time to drop a bunker buster a little bit closer to home!

      • The next “flyover” should be a rogue one around Christmas time in Kailua on and at a particular beach house when the basketball court is in use. They could deliver a present that says “Merry Xpotus! 🙂

        • For those who might be offended by my “jest” here? Get over it!!! The biggest enemy we have ever known sits in our WH today! Don’t think so? Go ask a dead veteran or the families who’s graves he walks on. We have more destuction within our own country done by the potus than anyone could do outside of it. Yes it isn’t just the potus duh! But we have put to death traitors who have done much less than he and his administration has done to all Americans. Most of which is pretty much irreversible!

    From WTPOTUS
    “Pearl Harbor – Dec. 7, 1941 – The only color film of the attack”

    Published on December 6, 2012

    At YouTube:

    “NOTE: This is all original color film, not B&W that has been colored, or stock footage made by a studio. This is the only known real color film of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

    This COLOR footage of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was shot by CWO4 Clyde Daughtry. The original footage has since been lost, and the poor quality of this footage is due to the fact that it is a copy. Among the many valuable portions of this footage are shots of USS Nevada (BB-36) underway and firing back at Japanese aircraft, USS Oglala (CM-4) rolling over and sinking, and USS St. Louis underway (CL-4).

    A Zephyrhills man stumbled on an incredible find connected to the Pearl Harbor attacks while purchasing war memorabilia.

    John Bolender is an avid collector of WWII memorabilia and recently he placed an ad looking to buy more.

    A woman answered the ad offering to sell boxes of old photos for $400.

    When he opened the boxes he discovered it was filled with hundreds of photos taken by Chief Warrant Officer Clyde Daughtry, a photographer with the Navy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3e99lfmmDN0

      Wow… good find. Thanks for sharing this Hoot!

      • What A Hoot says:

        I posted this on fb but wonder if anyone saw it and it was blocked somehow even though still on my wall because NOBODY commented or ‘liked’ it. That would be unusual for most of the crowd I hang out with.

        • Huh. Why was it blocked, I wonder?

          • What A Hoot says:

            I don’t know if it was as it is still there for me to see but why did no one comment or like? That is not like my friends.

            • You have friends? What’s that like? 😀 Reminds me of that line from Daniel Craig in Quantum of Solace where Olga Whatshername asks him about somebody following their car (in Haiti): “Friend of yours?” He replies: “No. I don’t have any friends.”

              It’s still early. Maybe you’ll get some late responses? I don’t get a lot of likes, most of the time, and that’s probably because I’m kind of an idiot, but often people are just busy for a day or two. Then, suddenly, a bunch of people will check in and you’ll see some responses. Either that or the NSA disabled your account again.
