Well, today the Grunts are back from the Big Island, and look what survived the trip. 100 proof hospitality courtesy of the GFCinThatOrder Family and Knight4GFC. Those folks know how to show friends a good time! I already can’t wait to go back!

    “Bad” Thad Cochran campaign so terrified of losing his cushy job they’re reaching out to democrats for support in the only language they understand….bribery.
    It’s been called the “nastiest primary in the country.” Now you can add allegations of “walking around money” and “vote buying,” a Democratic operative nicknamed “Scooby Doo,” and the testy denials of a Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) ally to the mix.

      I emailed the NRA political victory find regarding their endorsement of Cochran over McDaniel. They replied but didn’t answer my questions. (I’ll post it here later today). They also insisted Cochran never accepted democrat funding. Something stinks in all this.

        The NRA reply I received….

        Thank you for contacting the NRA-ILA.

        The NRA-PVF endorsed Senator Cochran for the following reasons: http://www.nrapvf.org/campaigns/2014/vote-cochran.aspx. The NRA-PVF gave a favorable grade to McDaniel as well. Senator Cochran has stated the following as well, “I adamantly disagree with Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agenda. In my campaign, I have never received a contribution from Michael Bloomberg.”

        The NRA is a single-issue, non-partisan organization that will continue to push for pro-gun reform. Thank you for your support and for taking the time to email us.

        Respectfully,
        Rocco P
        NRA-ILA, Grassroots Division

        I guess I’ll have to resend this to the NRA. (Chad Cochran’s voting record shows he is no friend)

    Publishing Source: Hillary Book a ‘Bomb’
    Despite $50 million in free publicity from an adoring media she only sold 60,000 copies of the book of lies she was paid millions in advance money .Her problem is her most devoted fans don’t know how to read.

    ICE shipping planeloads of illegal immigrants to Massachusetts
    They voted for them…they’re welcome to them.
    But a few planeloads won’t make a dent.You need trainload after trainload dropped off at Deval Patrick’s office.

      I would like to see a caravan head up the east coast and start dropping them off for about two or three years. They can get a taste of what we’ve had down here for the last 20 years. 👿

    National Labor Relations Board rules employers wrong to fire profane employees
    Remember when Barry stacked the NLRB with three hand-picked union thugs during a non-recess recess appointment?Then the SCOTUS told him it was illegal and it would nullify their findings?To which Barry said,KMA,i’ll do whatever I want?And they’re still there?Yeah,those would be the ones.
    Apparently you can curse your employer and be grossly insubordinate and get away with it.

    In one case, the NLRB ruled that a business shouldn’t have fired an employee even though he berated the owner to his face. In the other, the board ruled that Starbucks was wrong to fire an employee even though he used profanity and got into an altercation with a manager in front of customers.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of overkill.

  6. Hey thats where my moonshine ended up? Let us know that warms you up Grunt? And you can blame all that “hospitality” stuff on the Mrs, she’s the Hawaiian after all! 😉

    • Well then, thanks, Mrs. GFC! We just got back from a grocery run and we’re going to try it out as soon as we get some stuff put away. At dinner, we were just talking about how great it was to get to spend so much time with your lovely and gracious wife, GFC! She will be missed, but hopefully Gruntessa can keep up with the emailing and facetiming, and we’ll be able to stay up to date with our Hawaiian brothers and sisters. More on the moonshine taste later!

  7. Whoa! These Cuban baseball minor-leaguers are TOUGH!
