Semper Fi

June 29, 2010

I am a few days late on this, was out of the country last week and didn’t see this until now…

From The State:

Sgt. Chuck Taliano was awaiting an honorable discharge at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island in 1968 when a reservist writing a book about boot camp snapped a picture of him giving a recruit an “attitude readjustment.”

That cemented Taliano’s place in Corps legend.

The photo captured his snarling mug inches from a fresh-faced recruit with the caption, “We don’t promise you a rose garden.” It was on thousands of Marine Corps recruiting posters printed during the 1970s and 1980s.

I had that poster up on the barracks wall.

And just because July 4th is coming up:

Semper Fi Chuck.

Hat tip to Mike.

Pilot’s Post

Cool pilot-geeky stuff about supersonic flight.

I will be seeing the Blue Angels with my kids next weekend (4th of July weekend) at the Traverse City Cherry Festival.


Why do they keep asking the question…

June 28, 2010

When they know what answer they will (always and consistently) get?

So the Supreme Court hands down the opinion today that the right to KEEP and BEAR arms as enumerated by the second amendment does not arbitrarily end because of a line on some map, and the news people ask the same tired old question:


The results so far?


Can they quit asking now?

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!!

From Fox News: The federally-protected right to keep and bear arms expanded to all 50 states under Supreme Court ruling, striking down Chicago handgun ban.

High Court Extends Gun Rights to All States

In its second major ruling on gun rights in three years, the Supreme Court Monday extended the federally protected right to keep and bear arms to all 50 states. The decision will be hailed by gun rights advocates and comes over the opposition of gun control groups, the city of Chicago and four justices.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the five justice majority saying "the right to keep and bear arms must be regarded as a substantive guarantee, not a prohibition that could be ignored so long as the States legislated in an evenhanded manner.”


Imagine that!  The Constitution means what it says.  The anti-gunners have been infringing more and more on this right every year since 1934.

Well, they got the final, non-appealable answer today.  How ya like them apples?


Pilot’s Post # 1,085

June 18, 2010

The pilot was sitting in his seat and pulled out a .38 revolver.

He placed it on top of the instrument panel, and then asked the navigator,

"Do you know what I use this for?"

The navigator replied timidly, "No, what’s it for?"

The pilot responded, "I use this on navigators who get me lost!"

The navigator proceeded to pull out a .45 and place it on his chart table.

The pilot asked, "What’s that for?"

"To be honest sir," the navigator replied,

"I’ll know we’re lost before you will."
