This was at theBrigade. I check it on Mondays. It was too good to pass up.
This has some really good pictures and narratives as well. I think all will enjoy it!
“A Marine officer and enlisted man for 37 years, General Puller served at sea or overseas for all but ten of those years, including a hitch as commander of the “Horse Marines” in China. Excluding medals from foreign governments, he won a total of 14 personal decorations in combat, plus a long list of campaign medals, unit citation ribbons, and other awards. In addition to his Navy Crosses (the next-highest decoration to the Medal of Honor for Naval personnel), he holds its Army equivalent, the Distinguished Service Cross.”
Jayhawks to the Rescue!!!!!!!! This is funny in a way but it does show some serious ingenuity on the part of a pair of entrepenuers in Wichita. I wonder how much a pair of Joshua Trees would be?!?!?!?
Yes, I miss Wichita…………………We consider it to be home.
The full story at KWCH 12 is at the link. It is short but very interesting. Kansas artists making money selling cactus to Arizona cities.
“His whole life-story is counterfeit.
He is a Total Fraud.
One is tempted to say about ‘Obama’ that there is no ‘there’ there, but I think we have to revise that description to read: There is no Good-there there. He acts in a wicked manner, eschewing all sense of Morality and Virtue. He has nothing but disdain and scorn for all that is Honest, Decent, and True.
Thus, this creature is The Complete Inauthentic Man.”

I’m speaking, as you probably guessed, about ‘Barack Hussein Obama’, who is a fictional character created by David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, Bill Ayers, Barry Soetoro, etc.
Well, let me count the ways this poor excuse for a President [and a Man] is spurious:
-He is an Inauthentic American, someone who actually hates and despises everything America stands for so much that he is rabidly working to destroy this country.
-He is an Inauthentic Christian, because he is such a complete Narcissistic: he is not Humble or Merciful in any way nor, I suspect, has he ever felt any Shame for his actions. Also, his favoritism towards those who want to see Christians and Jews dead or enslaved [ie: Muslims] is Pathological, bespeaking a deep hatred for those two peoples [his Anti-Semitism is barely concealed these days].
-He is an Inauthentic Guardian of the Poor. Power And Control, the achieving and…

If you’ve got $18,500 USD to spare and a valid passport, you might as well give MiGFlug a call to book the flight of a lifetime. The organization whose tagline is “Be a Fighter Pilot For a Day” offers civilians the opportunity to fly up to 72,000 feet (22 kilometers) in the backseat of a MiG-29 Fulcrum, with one of Mikoyan’s premier test pilots from their Sokol facility riding up front. That’s the flight of a lifetime, considering that you’re nearer to the edge of space than anyone in existence, save for the astronauts aboard the International Space Station (and possibly super secret black aircraft pilots/RSOs in spy planes that don’t exist). How exactly does MiGFlug take you that high? Well, they use the Fulcrum’s ability to push a little past double the speed of sound to break through the MiG’s service ceiling of 59,000 feet. Adopting a ballistic…

Back in the 1980s, when it still existed, the Soviet Union maintained a number of “friendly” relationships with a variety of African and Asian nations, mostly for the purposes of selling military hardware to counter the West. One such nation was Libya, which opted to arm and equip its military with a variety of Soviet products, including MiG and Sukhoi fighters for its air force. At the time, the USSR was also in the process of shopping around its Mil Mi-25 Hind-D, the export variant of the Mi-24 Hind helicopter. The Hind was a fairly unique vehicle at the time, as it was built from the ground up as a heavily-armed attack gunship with the ability to accommodate a maximum of eight fully-armed soldiers in an extremely cramped bay directly behind the cockpit. The Hind could therefore deliver special forces teams to the battlefield and remain in the area of operations…
