Thirty Seconds over Tokyo ... Doolittle Raiders 88 Views 03/13/14

After Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor , with the United States reeling and wounded, something dramatic was needed to turn the war effort around. 


Even though there were no friendly airfields close enough to Japan for the United States to launch a retaliation, a daring plan was devised. Sixteen B-25s were modified so that they could take off from the deck of an aircraft carrier. This had never before been tried -- sending such big, heavy bombers from a carrier.
 
The 16 five-man crews, under the command of Lt. Col. James Doolittle, who himself flew the lead plane off the USS Hornet, knew that they would not be able to return to the carrier. They would have to hit Japan and then hope to make it to China for a safe landing.
 
But on the day of the raid, the Japanese military caught wind of the plan. The Raiders were told that they would have to take off from much farther out in the Pacific Ocean than they had counted on. They were told that because of this they would not have enough fuel to make it to safety.  And those men went anyway. 
 
They bombed Tokyo , and then flew as far as they could. Four planes crash-landed; 11 more crews bailed out, and three of the Raiders died. Eight more were captured; three were executed. 
Another died of starvation in a Japanese prison camp. One crew made it to Russia .
 
The Doolittle Raid sent a message from the United States to its enemies, and to the rest of the world: We will fight. And, no matter what it takes, we will win.   Of the 80 Raiders, 62 survived the war. They were celebrated as national heroes, models of bravery. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer produced a motion picture based on the raid; "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo," starring Spencer Tracy and Van Johnson, was a patriotic and emotional box-office hit, and the phrase became part of the national lexicon. In the movie-theater previews for the film, MGM proclaimed that it was presenting the story "with supreme pride."
 
Beginning in 1946, the surviving Raiders have held a reunion each April, to commemorate the mission. The reunion is in a different city each year. In 1959, the city of Tucson , Arizona , as a gesture of respect and gratitude, presented the Doolittle Raiders with a set of 80 silver goblets. Each goblet was engraved with the name of a Raider.  Every year, a wooden display case bearing all 80 goblets is transported to the reunion city. Each time a Raider passes away, his goblet is turned upside down in the case at the next reunion, as his old friends bear solemn witness.
 
Also in the wooden case is a bottle of 1896 Hennessy Very Special cognac. The year is not happenstance: 1896 was when Jimmy Doolittle was born.  There has always been a plan: When there are only two surviving Raiders, they would open the bottle, at last drink from it, and toast their comrades who preceded them in death.

As 2013 began, there were five living Raiders; then, in February,
Tom Griffin passed away at age 96. 
What a man he was. After bailing out of his plane over a mountainous Chinese forest after the Tokyo raid, he became ill with malaria, and almost died. When he recovered, he was sent to Europe to fly more combat missions. He was shot down, captured, and spent 22 months in a German prisoner of war camp.

The selflessness of these men, the sheer guts ... there was a passage in the Cincinnati Enquirer obituary for Mr. Griffin that, on the surface, had nothing to do with the war, but that emblematizes the depth of his sense of duty and devotion:  "When his wife became ill and needed to go into a nursing home, he visited her every day. He walked from his house to the nursing home, fed his wife and at the end of the day brought home her clothes. At night, he washed and ironed her clothes. Then he walked them up to her room the next morning. He did that for three years until her death in 2005."

So now, out of the original 80, only four Raiders remain: Dick Cole (Doolittle's co-pilot on the Tokyo raid), Robert Hite, Edward Saylor and David Thatcher. All are in their 90s. They have decided that there are too few of them for the public reunions to continue. The events in Fort Walton Beach marked the end. It has come full circle; Florida 's nearby Eglin Field was where the Raiders trained in secrecy for the Tokyo mission. The town planned to do all it can to honor the men: a six-day celebration of their valor, including luncheons, a dinner and a parade.

What you should know about dogs 117 Views 03/04/14

A dog's interpretation of property law:
  1. If I like it, it’s mine                                       2. If it’s in my mouth, it’s mine
  3. If I had it a little while ago, it’s mine           4. If I can take it from you, it’s mine

  5. If it’s mine, it must never be yours              6. If it just looks like mine, it’s mine

  7. If I saw it first, it’s mine                               8. If you are playing with something and put it down, it’s mine

  9. If I am chewing something up,                  10. If it used to be yours, get over it

      all of the pieces are mine

 11. If it's broken, it's yours.

Golfing in Scotland 190 Views 03/02/14

Four guys have been going to the same Golfing trip to St Andrews for many years..

 

Two days before the group is to leave, Jack's wife puts her foot down and tells him he isn't going.

 

Jack's mates are very upset that he can't go, but what can they do.

 

Two days later, the three get to St Andrews only to find Jack sitting at the bar with four drinks set up! "Wow, Jack, how long you been here, and how did you talk your missus into letting you go?"

 

"Well, I've been here since last night.. Yesterday evening, I was sitting in my living room chair and my wife came up behind me and put her hands over my eyes and asked, 'Guess who?" I pulled her hands off, and there she was, wearing a nightie.

 

She took my hand and pulled me into our bedroom. The room had candles and rose petals all over. Well she's been reading 50 Shades of Grey......On the bed she had handcuffs, and ropes! She told me to tie her up and cuff her to the bed, so I did.

 

And then she said, "Do whatever you want."

So, Here I am!

The Nurse and the AAA Batteries

 

"Of course I won't laugh," said the Nurse to the patient, "I'm a professional.

In over twenty years I've never laughed at a patient."

 

"Okay then," said Bob, and he proceeded to drop his trousers, revealing the
smallest adult male organ the Nurse had ever seen in her life. 
In length and width it was almost identical to a AAA battery.

 

Unable to control herself, the Nurse tried to stop a giggle, but it just came out.
And then she started laughing at the fact that she was laughing Feeling very
badly that she had laughed at the man's private part, she composed herself as
well as she could.

 

"I am so sorry," she said,"I don't know what came over me. On my honor as a 
Nurse and a lady, I promise that it won't happen again. Now, tell me, what seems
to be the problem?"

 

"It's swollen," Bob replied.

 

She ran out of the room

 

The Blonde and The Truck Driver

 

As a trucker stops at a red light, a blonde catches up. She jumps out of her car, runs up to his truck, and knocks on the door. The trucker lowers the window, and she says "Hi, my name is Heather and you're losing some of your load." 

The trucker ignores her and proceeds down the street. When the truck stops for another red light, the girl catches up again. She jumps out of her car, runs up and knocks on the door. Again, the trucker lowers the window. As if they've never spoken, the blonde says brightly, "Hi my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!" 

Shaking his head, the trucker ignores her again and continues down the street. At the third red light, the same thing happens again. All out of breath, the blonde gets out of her car, runs up, knocks on the truck door. The trucker lowers the window. Again she says "Hi, my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!"

When the light turns green the trucker revs up and races to the next light. When he stops this time, he hurriedly gets out of the truck, and runs back to the blonde's car. He knocks on her window, and as she lowers it, he says "Hi, my name is Kevin, it's Winter in Michigan and I'm driving the SALT TRUCK!"

Women are so much better... 122 Views 02/01/14

 The CIA had an opening for an assassin.


 After all the background checks, interviews and testing were done, there were three finalists; two men and a woman.  For the final test, the CIA agents took one of  the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun.

 'We must know that you will follow your Instructions no matter what the circumstances.  Inside the room you find your wife sitting in a chair... kill her!!!'

 The man said, 'You can't be serious. I could never shoot my wife.'

 The agent said, 'Then you're not the right man for this job. Take your wife and go home.'

 The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about 5 minutes.  The man came out with tears in his eyes, 'I tried, but I can't kill my wife.'

 The agent said, 'You don't have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.'

 Finally, it was the woman's turn. She was given the same instructions, to kill her husband.  She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls.  After a few minutes, all was quiet.

 The door opened slowly and there stood the woman, wiping the sweat from her brow.

 'This gun is loaded with blanks' she said, 'I had to kill him with the chair!'

Italian Lover 98 Views 01/25/14
The Italian Lover, a virile middle aged Italian gentlemen named Guido, was relaxing at his favorite bar in Rome when he managed to attract a spectacular tall, young blonde woman. Things progressed to the point where he led her back to his apartment, and after some small talk, they retired to his bedroom where he "rattled her senseless. "
 
After a pleasant interlude, he asked with a smile, "So, you finish?" She paused for a second, frowned, and replied.   "No."
 
Surprised, Guido reached for her and the rattling resumed. This time she thrashed about wildly and there were screams of passion. The sex finally ended and, again, Guido smiled and asked, "You finish?"
 
Again, after a short pause, she returned his smile, cuddled closer to him and softly said, "No."
Stunned, but damned if he was going to leave this woman unsatisfied, Guido reached for the woman yet again. Using the last of his strength, he barely managed it, but they ended together screaming, bucking, clawing and ripping the bed sheets.
 
Exhausted, Guido fell onto his back, gasping.  Barely able to turn his head, he looked into her eyes, smiled proudly and asked again, "You finish?"
 
Barely able to speak, the beautiful blonde whispered in his  ear.....    "No, I  Norwegian.

Axis of Idiots 124 Views 11/14/13

 

If you've never met a Marine Sgt. Major you have misssed one of life's great opportunities. They are tough as nails... real life John Wayne types and if they have your back you're safe.

"The Axis of Idiots"
From the Podium:
J. D. Pendry, Retired Sergeant Major, USMC 


FROM THE PODIUM

This retired USMC Sgt. Major has his Stuff together.

Jimmy Carter, you are the father of the Islamic Nazi movement. You threw the Shah under the bus, welcomed the Ayatollah home, and then lacked the spine to confront the terrorists when they took our embassy and our people hostage. You're the "runner-in-chief."

Bill Clinton, you played ring around the Lewinsky while the terrorists were at war with us. You got us into a fight with them in Somalia and then you ran from it. Your weak-willed responses to the USS Cole and the First Trade Center Bombing and Our Embassy Bombings emboldened the killers. Each time you failed to respond adequately, they grew bolder, until 9/11/2001.

John Kerry, dishonesty is your most prominent attribute. You lied about American Soldiers in Vietnam . Your military service, like your life, is more fiction than fact. You've accused our military of terrorizing women and children in Iraq . You called Iraq the wrong war, wrong place, wrong time, and the same words you used to describe Vietnam . You're a fake! You want to run from Iraq and abandon the Iraqis to murderers just as you did to the Vietnamese. Iraq , like Vietnam , is another war that you were for, before you were against it.

John Murtha, you said our military was broken. You said we can't win militarily in Iraq . You accused United States Marines of cold-blooded murder without proof and said we should redeploy to Okinawa . Okinawa, John? And the Democrats call you their military expert! Are you sure you didn't suffer a traumatic brain injury while you were off building your war hero resume? You're a sad, pitiable, corrupt, and washed up old fool. You're not a Marine, sir. You wouldn't amount to a good pimple on a real Marine's ass. You're a phony and a disgrace. Run away, John.

Dick Durbin, you accused our Soldiers at Guantanamo of being Nazis, tenders of Soviet style gulags and as bad as the regime of Pol Pot, who murdered two million of his own people after your party abandoned Southeast Asia to the Communists. Now you want to abandon the Iraqis to the same fate. History was not a good teacher for you, was it? Lord help us! See Dick run.

Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Carl Levine, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Russ Feingold, Pat Leahy, Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, the Hollywood Leftist morons, et al, ad nauseam: Every time you stand in front of television cameras and broadcast to the Islamic Nazis that we went to war because our President lied, that the war is wrong and our Soldiers are torturers, that we should leave Iraq, you give the Islamic butchers - the same ones that tortured and mutilated American Soldiers - cause to think that we'll run away again, and all they have to do is hang on a little longer. It is inevitable that we, the infidels, will have to defeat the Islamic jihadists. Better to do it now on their turf, than later on ours after they have gained both strength and momentum.

American news media, the New York Times particularly: Each time you publish stories about national defense secrets and our intelligence gathering methods, you become one united with the sub-human pieces of camel dung that torture and mutilate the bodies of American Soldiers. You can't strike up the courage to publish cartoons, but you can help Al Qaeda destroy my country. Actually, you are more dangerous to us than Al Qaeda is. Think about that each time you face Mecca to admire your Pulitzer.

You are America 's 'AXIS OF IDIOTS.' Your Collective Stupidity will destroy us. Self-serving politics and terrorist-abetting news scoops are more important to you than our national security or the lives of innocent civilians and Soldiers. It bothers you that defending ourselves gets in the way of your elitist sport of politics and your ignorant editorializing. There is as much blood on your hands as is on the hands of murdering terrorists. Don't ever doubt that. Your frolics will only serve to extend this war as they extended Vietnam . If you want our Soldiers home as you claim, knock off the crap and try supporting your country ahead of supporting your silly political aims and aiding our enemies.

Yes, I'm questioning your patriotism. Your loyalty ends with self. I'm also questioning why you're stealing air that decent Americans could be breathing. You don't deserve the protection of our men and women in uniform. You need to run away from this war, this country. Leave the war to the people who have the will to see it through and the country to people who are willing to defend it.

Our country has two enemies: Those who want to destroy us from the outside and those who attempt it from within.

Semper Fi,
J. D. Pendry - Sergeant Major, USMC, Retired

More truth about the Debt 132 Views 01/13/14

I posted this on Bernie's PTSD blog but it seems to have disappeared....

Making some Braised Pulled Pork Shoulder for the family dinner tonight.  It takes 3 1/2 to 4 hours to cook and I was thinking, of all the freedoms we have in America where does the right to Economic freedom rank.

We all know that the Federal Debt ended the year at $17.2 Trillion, $54,000 for every person living in the US, 102% of GDP and about 6 years worth of Federal Revenues.  That's pretty bad but the economy is recovering slowly despite the ineptitude of the Government... but is that the whole story?

Corporations have to account for future obligations such as pensions and retirement benefits. The Government isn't bound by these same rules when preparing the budget but it is accounted for in the Financial Report of the US Government.  You might have heard the term "unfunded public mandate" with regard to city bankruptcy or states being unable to honor employee pensions.  That happens when new contracts are signed with employee unions or others, administrations change and no money is set aside to cover those financial contracts.

I don't recommend you read the 2012 because we know for a fact that lawyers and accountants have a language that few of us understand.  Hell, lawyers even use weird size paper that doesn't fit in filing cabinets.  I heard that if you add up all the pages of the ACA and all of the pages of the regulations that the minions in each Federal department wrote to define the process you would have approximately 20 "War and Peace" novels. I hardly was able to get through one.

Ant way... if you do add up all of the unfunded mandates at the Federal level.. employee pensions, military pensions, Social Security and Medicare and a whole lot of other accounting minutiae...

 

The real Federal Debt would be $67 Trillion

Psychology !01 123 Views 11/15/13
If you start with a cage containing five monkeys, and inside the cage hang a banana on a string from the top, and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana. 
    As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the monkeys with cold water. 
    After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result -- all the monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it. 
    Now, put the cold water away. 
    Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. 
    After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted. 
    Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a new one. 
    The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment -- with enthusiasm -- because he is now part of the "team." 
    Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by the fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked. 
    Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey. 
    Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, not one of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana. 
    Why, you ask? Because in their minds, that is the way it has always been! 
    This, my friends, is how the Congress operates... and this is why, from time to time: 
    ALL of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME !

Cow Economics 69 Views 11/14/13
Received this the other day..
Author Unknown.

Cow Economics: 

After the recent teetering on the edge of total economic and financial meltdown, it seems economic systems and their workings have pushed their way into the need to know category. Well, we can now simplify this all by explaining twenty-one (21) basic economic models:


SOCIALISM
You have 2 cows.
You have to give one to your neighbour.


COMMUNISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and gives you some milk.


FASCISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and sells you some milk.


NAZISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and shoots you.


BUREAUCRATIC
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away.


TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell one and buy a bull.
Your herd multiplies and the economy grows.
You sell them and retire on the income.


SURREALISM
You have two giraffes.
The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.


AN AMERICAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant to analyze why the cow has dropped dead.


AN INVESTMENT BANK
You have two cows.
You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. 
The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. 
The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. 
You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States, leaving you with nine cows. 
No balance sheet is provided with the release. 
The public then buys your bull.


A FRENCH CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You go on strike, organize a riot and block the roads, because you want three cows.


A JAPANESE CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.
You then create a clever cow cartoon image called 'Cowkimon' and market it worldwide.


A GERMAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You engineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.


A RUSSIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows.
You count them again and learn you have forty-two cows.
You count them again and learn you have two cows.
You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.


A SWISS CORPORATION
You have five thousand cows. None of them belong to you.
You charge the owners for storing them.


A CHINESE CORPORATION
You have two cows. You have three-hundred people milking them.
You claim that you have full employment and high bovine productivity.
You arrest the newsman who reports the real situation.


AN INDIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows. You worship them.


A BRITISH CORPORATION
You have two cows. Both are mad.


A WEST VIRGINIA CORPORATION
You have two cows.
The one on the left looks very attractive.


AN ITALIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows, but you don't know where they are. You decide to have lunch.


AN IRISH CORPORATION
You have two cows, but you don't care where they are. You decide to have a pint.
