    Sir, yes Sir!

    I hope our Hawaiian connection is feeling better.

    • What A Hoot says:

      Me, too. Prayers to our “Hawaiian connection” (and that does NOT mean you, Barry! You are our Hawaiian dis-connection.)

      • Hah! Yes, indeed! Barry might even be our Hawaiian Dysentery! If we’re lucky, maybe he’ll pick up that crud going around the islands and be completely unable to play that 160th round of golf. Save us a little cashola.

        But prayers all around here for GFC and Knight and all relations on the Big Island! Aloha Brothers!

          Good morning all (waving a white flag) and this is some of what we have been experiencing over the last 36 hours non-stop.
          Thank you for the well wishes and the prayers are welcomed indeed! Going to figure out the body count and dig in for the day. Ahhhh that coffee is sure good! Thank the Good Lord for my family here!

          • Okay, body count. Wife sick, son #2 getting better, son #3 sick, sons #4 & 5 sick, daughter #1 sick, son #6 getting better, daughter #2 sick, son #7 sick, daughter #3 sick. Me? Why I feel like a million bucks…..that’s in debt trillions if you know what I mean. I’s probably a good thing that my throat is sore cause I would be doing some worthless yelling at some dipstick that plays golf on Christmas. This said while I am at home working on bids on ….Hey what the heck am I doing it is New Years Eve? oh yeah it’s that trillion thing…know what I mean Vern?….

            • Hey check out the lightning display above

              • Holy smokes! That really looks like Armageddon over Hilo. What have you guys been doing? Are you sure Obummer isn’t down there somewhere trying to play golf and the four horsemen are trying to smite him?

                Sorry about having to work today while sick. I’m doing the same thing, but I’m not sick like that, so I hope you get to take some time off tonight. Maybe you’ll get some dry soon!

  2. What A Hoot says: The first comment is the best:


    Perhaps the police officer should arrest his own wife for being a prostitute. Even thought she wasn’t selling “it,” she still hat the means and equipment to do so… including her own “hidden compartment.”

    I am seriously considering getting me a visible secret compartment and go do some speeding in Ohio. . .

    • That case, and others like it, are really disturbing. I just saw a car ad, for a Chevy, I think, where they advertised a “secret hiding place” in the dash. Wow. The car is probably manufactured in Ohio and it comes off the line ready to get you arrested right out of the show room.

  3. is a site with some hilarious “historical” instagrams. Check it out.

  4. International poll shows vast majority of people think the U.S. is the biggest threat to world peace.

    Rather apropos for NYE. Go home, you’re drunk. πŸ˜†

  6. You can’t make this sh*t up. The climate scientists aboard the icebound ship off Antarctica just released a statement about how they predicted all this, and how this buildup of sea ice falls right along their theories about global warming and melt-down of glacial ice. So sea ice doesn’t matter now. It’s just glacial ice that’s melting. 😯 These guys have giant cojones!

    Happy New Years to all my 4GFC family:

  8. Everything in this life passes awayβ€”only God remains, only He is worth struggling towards. We have a choice: to follow the way of this world, of the society that surrounds us, and thereby find ourselves outside of God; or to choose the way of life, to choose God Who calls us and for Whom our heart is searching.” β€” Fr. Seraphim Rose
    Happy New Year Brothers and Sisters

  9. Knight4GFC says:

    Happy New Year to all of my fellow 4GFC’ers! May God bless us all this new year!

    More from our storm on the Big Island.

    Well, gang…it’s now officially 2014. I can’t say that I’m sorry to see ’13 gone; but I fear that the regime has more surprises up its sleeve for us this year.
    Usually, I feel fairly confident going into a new year (you know, “things have just got to be better”), but I must admit that I feel pretty pessimistic about what may be coming up for us. I really believe that the regime and their “elite” followers think that they have us on the ropes and that America is ripe for the transition to a socialist/communist/fascist state…and that we won’t do anything to try to resist or stop it. And I think that it will be rough on all of us – and our fellow patriots.
    About all we can do is try to vote the right people in – and we’ll see what that’s worth later this year. And we’ll see if congress has the balls to defy lil barry when he decides to rule by fiat, diktat and executive order. Aside from that, we’ll all have to try to double down on our prepping. (What the hell. If it turns out all right, we can eat the food storage and compete with the ammo stocks…)

    At any rate, brothers and sisters, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Let’s just do the best we can with what we got. πŸ™‚
