    In the Soviet Union, the nomenklatura had their own hospitals and stores, drove down the middle of the roads in big black cars, etc. Looky here for Denver:

    While I believe that everything google does has a nefarious intent, I like this concept.

      The obvious questions are:
      Why? I have ammo from WW2 that still works fine.
      Why? Would it kill these SOB’s to just sell it through the CMP?
      They have ZERO respect for OUR money!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • zmalfoy says:

      Has no one thought of selling it? If they don’t need it, they could sell it and, probably, turn a profit at this point. . .Which would help the Mil-budget, even a little . . .

    Y’all aren’t gonna believe this, but all those hip Silicon Valley computer geek companies operate a lot like the old-school companies, and their water-carriers are shocked.

  8. Great news! Harvey helped us find Sol, and I’ve been on the phone with him for the last hour. He sounds great! Soooo much better than before. He’s in a long-term care place in St. Louis, and still on some good drugs, but he’s real lucid today. He got our huge plant on the first few days, but no care package, apparently. More later!

      • Bad news: Our care package is still in limbo.
        Good news: He’s been watering the huge plant we sent, and it’s been following him around so far without getting lost. He also got the first 2 magazines. He liked the HotRod mag, but the Oprah mag had the desired effect and confused the hell out of him. He thought “Who the hell would send me something like this??? I must be losing my mind.” I guess the drugs heightened the effect. Heh! πŸ˜€

        Oh, another thing. I told him about the Worldwide prayer thing that MRM and Shal and Zoph came up with, and everyone’s comments, and I think the old, tough guy might have gotten a little emotional. πŸ˜‰ He thanked everyone very sincerely.

    • zmalfoy says:

      THANK GOD!!!!!!!!11!!!

      Oh thank God! *relieved*
      Oh, and thank you Harvey for the help in finding him! (And St. Anthony, as I’ve been pestering him with “St. Anthony, St. Anthony, please look around/ someone’s been lost and cannot be found!” for the past coupla days. . .. πŸ˜› )

      Back to crafting my carepackage. And so happy to hear that he’s doing better!

    • Harvey says:

      I will be stopping in St. Louis saturday and visiting Sol. In case the rooms have wi-fi, I will bring an ipad. Would you like to set up a thread so everyone can leave messages that he can (hopefully) see? Or you could send emails for him to read. Let me know what you would like to do.

    • barnslayer says:

      Sorry to hear Sol may not get the care package but we should send him more when you feel the timing is better. Please let us all know how we can help…. or post/email Sol’s address if you want us to do this on our own.

      • Oh no, I’m sure we’ll be able to get him the package eventually. And I told him the contents, so he’s looking forward to it. I’m still working with their shipping/receiving to locate it. If it’s been sent back to me already, I can just send it on to his current location in a few days. If it’s still there, Harvey has offered to pick it up on the way to see Sol this weekend.

  9. So, our President has “honored” Islam by this visit and promised to help end persecution of Muslims, especially since so many are “wrongly accused of violence,” even though this National Mosque of Malaysia is built on the destroyed remains of a Christian church. Hmmm. At least he’s made similar promises to all those Christians being killed by muslims in Africa. Wait. He hasn’t? Hmmmm.

  10. The French Revolution is the key to understanding every egalitarian-driven tyranny since then, including the one we’re currently faced with. This movie could help us with some of that.
