    A nice boat like that should have a resident dentist on board. Where should I send my resume?

    • *****boink**** Somewhere along the lines I didn’t get the memo. Can someone please direct me to MY new boat? I also agree with you Barn. So when you land that job let me know so I can trace down who has my new boat and where it is. I`d kinda like to see it! πŸ˜‰
      I think Grunt may have had a few too many yesterday…..or maybe I did……darn it I can’t find my wallet again…wth

      • I have your wallet. And your boat. After you got too loopy with the barley juice last night, I thought they needed safe-keeping. If you want ’em back, just send me a couple of pounds of dark chocolate macadamia nuts, and then you can have an extra kid, too! πŸ™‚

    GFC’s new boat? Is he the guy scrubbing the deck saying “yes sir” to the captain?

    • Heh! Actually, GFC and I are the two guys fishing in the tiny motor launch about to be run over by this behemoth. Good thing we can swim! πŸ˜€

      • Don’t have any Macadamia’s with chocolate, but do have a little bit of our favorite dried ika with chocolate. πŸ™‚ That stuff doesn’t last long around here! Now fork over the wallet I need to wear it during our next fishing trip! Who needs a life vest when you can carry a wallet! πŸ˜‰

    Isn’t it amazing that since barrycare began, we’ve seen more and more articles on the failed efficacy of preventive measures that were once hailed. Coincidence? I doubt it. πŸ‘Ώ

    Thought For The Day: Timing Is Everything
    If you start shooting the bad guys early enough to make a difference, you’ll be labeled a radical crazy person.
    If you wait until it’s acceptable, you’ll be 80 pounds underweight, unarmed, and being loaded into a boxcar.

    “Obama’s Fate” Good read. I hope he’s right.

    • That IS a good read. I’m not sure what he’s saying is that optimistic, though. So, Obama will get his, but we still lose our republic and become Argentina? Are we supposed to be relieved about that?

  6. This is video of the arrest of that women who caused a drunken ruckus on a Delta flight from BWI to Salt Lake. She was angry that the man next to her refused her sexual advances, so she spent the rest of the flight in handcuffs shouting obscenities. At the very end of the video, the shot of the little blond girl with wide eyes and a shell-shocked look on her face is priceless.

    Grunt – apparently the fine folks in NH did not get the memo about what happens when you try to ram gun legislation down the peoples throats.

  8. Is it over, and we just don’t know it?

  9. This is fun. Skydiving crew drops video camera. Farmer finds it in his pig pen and posts video of his pigs trying to eat the camera immediately after it hits the mud. These cameras are pretty tough these days!

  11. Things getting worse in the Ukraine. Or better, depending on what side you’re on.

  12. What the administration is doing to our troops should be a hanging offense. From Breitbart:
    Our best and brightest come home in body bags as politicians and lawyers dine over white linen tablecloths; writing, modifying, and re-modifying these lethal rules. Rules that favor the enemy rather than the American soldier. Rules so absurd they’re difficult to believe until you hear the same stories over and again from those returning from battle.
    In a delicate discussion with an Army Ranger who recently left the military, we heard the following: β€œI had to get out. I have a family who needs me. I didn’t join to be sacrificed. I joined to fight.”
    This decision came shortly after he lost a close friend to the ROE. He explained how the Taliban had attempted an ambush on his friend’s squad but quickly realized they were in a battle they couldn’t win and began retreating. While chasing them, the U.S. soldiers were ordered not to engage due to the slight chance the Taliban had laid down their arms as they ran through some type of shack. While arguing with leadership at the JOC (Joint Operations Center), his friend was shot and killed.
    A Navy SEAL who left his job only a few years shy of full retirement said the following: β€œI got out because I couldn’t take it anymore. We tried to explain how much reckless danger we were being exposed to and they told us we were being illogical.”
    This type of response has created a growing crisis of confidence between our warfighters and senior military leadership. His argument wasn’t illogical at all.
