Barn gets a little careless with the tank modeling and leaves the hatch open.

And now we know how they trained those anti-tank dogs in the 40s.

    Pretty Funny – Black Woman Crashes Darren Wilson Rally And Demands An Answer To Her Question

    Home – by BigFurHat – August 24, 2014 – 04:06 America/New_York – 30 Comments

    Bumped and UPDATED: I consider myself someone with below average hearing, so I just assumed if I could hear it…

    The question she asks is:

    “Why ain’t there no police here? Where are the police? Y’all distirbin’ the peace. Why are they not shootin on y’all?”

    Answer from a guy in the crowd:

    “Because we ain’t stealin’ shit!!”

    Great comeback!

    Notice nothing was thrown at this woman,no one threatened to burn her home or kill her,like the Darren Wilson supporters have had done to them.

    GALLUP: IMMIGRATION MORE IMPORTANT THAN OBAMACARE TO REPUBLICAN VOTERS
    Look for Obama to sign executive order granting amnesty to 30 million illegals before Labor Day.
    illegal?Unconstitutional? Who’s going to stop him?

    • That IS a good read. You don’t hear of that every day.

      “…I don’t like what I see in the society I’m about to enter. I don’t think I’m going to fit in. It’s too loud. Too colorful. The lack of aesthetics. The crudeness. The inanities. The trivia.”

      Welcome to the real world. A very good perspective of what society considers “crazy” vs. what someone like Chris considers “crazy.” In reality, he lived in a fantasy world. A world where he did not have to deal with society and it’s headaches, hoping that reality would never catch up to him.

  3. Knight4GFC says:

    A very good read.

    “How does a man love according to divine precept his neighbor as himself when, knowing that his Christian brothers in faith and in name are held by the perfidious Muslims in strict confinement and weighed down by the yoke of heaviest servitude, he does not devote himself to the task of freeing them? … Is it by chance that you do not know that many thousands of Christians are bound in slavery and imprisoned by the Muslims, tortured with innumerable torments?”

  4. Earthquakes in Chile and California this morning. Not sure why the CA one is being called a San Francisco Bay Area quake. This was mostly Napa, I think. I don’t really think that’s SFBA, but what do I know?

    Got this photo from Proof Positive. Look how much the road shifted sideways in this photo.

      Facebooked with Lil’ bro this morning, who currently lives just northwest of San Jose. He said they didn’t feel a thing, and a lot news just making a big deal out of:

      people waking up with things FALLING off their shelves, we’re going now to ____ who is with one resident. ____, what did you feel?”
      “Well there was some shaking…and….lots of things rattling around” “Well, my goodness..”

      • From what I’ve heard, nobody felt much outside of the Napa area. BA was fine.

        Are you able to say which Silicon Valley community Lil’ Bro lives in? I ask because that’s our old stomping ground. We lived in Sunnyvale, Cupertino and San Jose at times. Very familiar with Palo Alto, MV, Los Altos, Santa Clara, Los Gatos, Saratoga, etc. Just curious.

  5. I hate being so PO’d on a beautiful Sunday morning! Thanks Grunt! 😉
    Thankfully I am on my way to Sunday Service and I will be renewed and refreshed in Spirit. 🙂

    Black & white photo above is a training pic from WW2. The early Russian T-34 (with mock-up gun tube) is the target.

    • Thanks, Barn! At first, I labeled it a WWI photo just out of ignorance. Then switched to ’40s’ when I realized it must really be WWII. I didn’t notice the fake gun tube until you mentioned. I did, however, realize the gun tube was fake on the first photo. 😉

      • barnslayer says:

        Fooled you on that one too! Under the cardboard camo lies a fully functioning miniature KV2. Tank commander Ivannah Klawyafazoff stands by awaiting orders.

        • Ha ha hahhhh! You got me there, Barn. These creative camo schemes are really effective! I was just at a gun show yesterday with son#2, and he had to explain all the current camo patterns. Can’t keep ’em all straight. There’s even a funky snake skin version the kids are using these days.

          OT: Anybody else having trouble with autocorrect lately? It’s so aggressive, it WILL NOT let you use certain words, like ‘camo’!! The stupid thing INSISTS on changing it to ‘camp’ no matter now many times you back over it and type it in. WTF? You have to get really creative, like doing it in 2 or 3 steps, to get it to ‘allow’ you to use the word. It’s a conspiracy, I tell yah.

          • Pistol Pete says:

            I know this site had an ‘edit’ button for about a day last week.It took a lot of pressure off having to proofread everything before you hit the ‘post’ button.Then it disappeared.
            Is there a way to get it back or was wordpress just teasing us?
            (they have it at PN)

            • I think that was just WP teasing you, Pete. We didn’t do anything different. It could be that you have an edit button at PN because you’re a higher level administrator there. Here you’re an ‘author’ which means (I think) you may not be able to edit stuff after it’s been posted. I’m looking into it, but it appears WP doesn’t have a level where you can edit all your work without having total power over the entire blog and everybody in it. If they did, we’d give that to you in a heartbeat. Seems kinda stupid to me and a great weakness of WP. I’ll keep trying to complain about that. Meantime, if you mess something up, just ask in a comment to fix it, and I’ll try to get it done. It’s a pain, I know.

    “You don’t lose your freedom once you start a business. At a time when this country needs all the entrepreneurial/job-creating spirit it can muster, what better way to encourage that risk-taking spirit then to tell people you lose your freedom once you take that risk. Note the sarcasm.

    This North Carolina restaurant owner was perfectly within her rights to use her business as a means to promote her views, just as those who don’t agree were perfectly within their rights not to eat there if they disagree. The only caveat being the exercise of her rights cannot impose on the rights of others, which it did not…”

    Muslims Use Dolls To Train Their Kids How To Behead Infidels, And Say, “Teach children to cut necks, tomorrow there will be rotten heads”

    “As for us at Shoebat.com, we make our own homemade Falafel, brew our own Makgeolli, role our own tobacco (it costs 50 cents per packet), bake our own French peasant loaves of bread, but as far as the pickles, we especially prefer and buy zionist OSEM Israeli pickles. These are simply the best (ISIS, eat your hearts out).

    P.S, please don’t lecture us on smoking, the liberals already give us a headache. Keep in mind, the first to ban smoking were the Nazis. Look it up.”
