    I am at a loss for words ... Which should make

    Slick and 'big al barber' raise an eyebrow of surprise. I never could get past that pesky word, 'pithy'. I think i was vaccinated at an early age with a phonograph needle. Just a hunch.

    As ya'll have seen the boy's from yemen have been replaced by the hurricane 'earl' and the silver springs incident yesterday.

    I think the hurricane should be renamed: 'my name is earl' after that boring tv sit-com. Now i've derailed myself again faster than an amtrak train. (i.e., i got off track).

    As for the attack on america: That is the topic title of this thread. I found it really interesting regarding the just breaking news on yet another oil rig that went ka-boom in the gulf off the coast of texas. Media says no one has a clue as to what happened but people on the rig were rescued.

    Last i heard the rig was still burning. Houston probably had a pre-labor day fire sale on garden hoses and there aren't enough to put out the fire on the burning oil rig.

    Prelim news reports say the rig was not producing any 'product'. Anyone thinking 'sabotage'?

    These rigs are very pricey to build and put out there and they don't just throw a dart at a map and go, "let's drill here!"

    nope. Before one is put on site it usually goes thru alot of extensive exploration to see if there is anything down there worth drilling for. Right? I don't know much about the science other that what i read on the gas pump when i fill up my jeep with some really expensive 92 octane.

    Where i live the gasoline is the most expensive in the country. Right now were i to drive into my local gas station on fumes and fill up it would cost me about $150.00!!

    I think of that as an attack on america. Or ... At least ocean view, hawaii.

    Meanwhile the attack on america has me focused today on some guy who put out a report yesterday following that speech from the oval office by the big 'o' where this guy says it is the fault of the vietnam veterans for **'breathing'** or drinking water in vietnam?

    Call me crazy but i had no idea i was supposed to hold my breath for 13 months and pray for then (non-existent) bottles of aquafina bottled water to put in my canteen rather than the rice paddy or well water with a halazone tablet.
    ******
    i assume most of ya'll heard the speakers yesterday and listened to the rhetoric while the big 'o' stood to one side with his earwig thing on along with the big-wigs (no connection to any wigs) listened to the translation when the 'plo' guy spoke.

    Sec/state hilary had her translation head set on for all of the speakers? I found it strange since some spoke english.

    Nah.... She understands english. Right? Maybe it was just a head set hooked to her ipod while she listened to some elevator music. Just spit-balling here.
    *******

    then the visitors were 'herded' into a room for a private dinner. Pork-chops probably weren't on the menu.
    ****
    after that not much else was reported. However if ya'll listened to each speaker you have to know that all it takes is one more attack or support of an attack and we're back to square one. I don't think we ever left square one.
    *****
    when i was a kid; i never beat 'square one' esp. Playing 'monopoly'. Always drew that card, 'do not pass go, do not collect $200.00.

    I suspect the game was rigged in a conspiracy involving the 'veterans administration' and some large corporate conglomerates. If i landed on 'park-place' i could never afford to buy it. I suspect it was reserved for wealthy muslims from saudi arabia so they could build or fund a large muslim mosque on park-place, nyc.
    *****

    one thing is certain. Before the day is done. Something else
    muslim related will take place.

    Something will happen. Maybe pigs will fly over the middle east; course they can't shoot them down; pork would be just ever where.
    *******
    media reports the burning rig might have been drilling for 'natural gas'. We can get all that we need from bureaucrats in the 'district of confusion' (wdc) or from lots of broccoli in our diets.
    ******
    time to git to it. Got a pan of 'wild rice' to tame. Actually it's not a rice like the stuff from asia. It's actually an 'aquatic cereal'.
    *****

    more as i get it; i usually do...

    The muslim guys & lost luggage saga continues

    Well so far after the last post on this incident; we now see that the two muslims who were arrested in amsterdam not only 'uh... Lost their luggage defying tsa regs on international flights, but...

    The two guys claimed to not know each other, yet both were headed 'home' to yemen. I sure hope this rings a few bells out there in pop-a-smoke land. I'm sure more will be forthcoming as it gets better n' better.

    Also i picked up something yesterday but missed it; so i can't really say much on it but there seems to be something similar or related to something in murfeesboro, tenn. (not sure if that is spelt rite). I went thru their many years ago; mostly dodging tenn. Hwy. Patrol guys.

    These muslim guys are all over us like 'white on rice' (wild rice excepted; it ain't rice. It's actually an aquatic cereal).

    Where was i?

    Yes. I remember. I was feeling like i was diagonally parked in a parallel universe. While trying to figure out how to make my right hand do that commander spock's vulcan hand gesture without using my left hand to spread my fingers on my right hand?

    I remember an old 50's tv sci-fi show; basically about 'space commander whack and his dead dog 'larry'. It sort of reminds me of how inefficient the so called 'tsa' is with respect to making sure airports are safe.

    They seem to be easily diverted by terrorists because the bad guys already know they have short (if any) attention spans.

    Meanwhile back in nasa land; their latest low bidder has spent a billion dollars on a new rocket to replace the out going shuttles. If fizzled.

    Remember those old b&w sc-fi shows that showed the rocket zooming thru space? It was clearly a little metal tube hanging from a string with cigarette smoke coming out it's rear end.

    I think iran has something a bit more sophisticated. Call me crazy (most do); but i doan think thier nuke rockets are going to be hanging from a string propelled by cigar smoke.

    My guess is iranians have already infiltrated nasa only to report back to tehran, 'we're gonna win!'.

    Anyone watch the oval office speech yesterday? Any thoughts on that one? I have a few dozen.

    The big 'o' (the prez) remarked on a long convoy of troops leaving iraq and entering kuwait without a single shot fired at the convoy. Duh????

    Hey! They're leaving en masse why shoot at them and start something? Meanwhile for reasons not clearly outlined the in-country usa helo drivers are now busier than usual.

    Now; i'm all for the troops pulling out lock stock and barrel and putting them to better use here in the usa. No point in trying to out do the russians in a war they lost with those guys just by attrition.

    Btw; this notam board thang is a hoot.

    Meanwhile it is as of this sentence; 0901 hours hst. I'm in the computer room with cnn on; listening to a problem with some guy in silver springs, md.

    Now. Isn't that place sort of devoted to cia hq? Or did they move without leaving a forwarding address with our reduced force postal service?

    Why is this guy in a building surrounded by 's.w.a.t.' (another pesky acronym). First impression is lots of guys with fly-swatters in armored cars; (this is for really serious flies). No 'r.a.i.d.' (sorry another acronym).

    This guy is reported to be heavily armed and is wearing some sort of 'tanks' on his back. I'm fairly certain but not 100% certain; he is there to complain about loosing his 's.c.u.b.a' certification! (yep... Another acronym).

    My guess is the guy has some amped up version of a flame thrower or just something that will simply go 'boom!'. ('boom' is not an acronym). Wish it was. 'b.o.o.m.' might be some acronym related to 'hooters'. Who knows?

    Still, all these federal, state and military acronyms are confusing. It's like trying to read and 'eye chart' and come away with some comprehensive understanding of what one has just read.

    Anyone who may have access to this suggestion would you please post an image (jepg) of an eye chart in 'farsi'? It might explain alot. It would appear the tsa warnings posted in airports in 'farsi' don't seem to be legible to those that read the language. Mis-spells n' stuff. How can you tell the difference?

    It probably is the root of that problem. I suggest the tsa take down the tsa 'farsi' warning signs regarding luggage and just stick an 'imam' up above the crowd and he can yell at them.

    Meanwhile back in silver springs there are reports of shots fired. Not sure if it's the nut or the s.w.a.t. Acronyms doing the shooting but someone better not hit those tanks on that guy's back.

    Meanwhile the authorities (what a great label) are telling people in the building to lock themselves in their offices and not come out.

    If things go 'f.u.b.a.r.' (ya'll know that acronym) the people won't have to worry about exit strategies.

    I think the media have posted a photo of this guy. Not sure. However it does sound somewhat like that utah incident where the guy went in guns blazing in a federal building that had a federal court room (i think) and a social security office. Word was he was peeved over his ssa benefits. Meantime the cops there didn't block traffic but traffic was coming and going in both (all directions)....

    While the cops were all over the place doing a re-run of the 'o.k. Corral in tombstone'. Don't ya love 'fire discipline'?

    Meanwhile back a few posts in 'nuclear' land anyone figure out what hd-50/50 means?

    It means if a radioactive product is exposed one way or another; pick your poison; it alludes to the number of people who will die at a given rate depending on exposure over a given number of days.

    Sounds like perty safe odds if your just playing black or red on a roulette table (well not exactly since you have to watch for the three green spots on that wheel of fortune); but it's not bad odds. Even if your the only player surrounded by a bunch of casino paid 'shills'.

    It doesn't work that way with radiation.
    ********
    now the nut in silver springs is reported to have hostages or at least one; who is described as the security guard for the building???

    So much for 'wack 'n' hut' security (name of the corp. That provides security at airports, public and private buildings; and even multi-plex movie theaters!). Should be self explanatory. Right?

    I met one once in kona who was in charge of night watch on our mutli-office medical complex. He was unarmed; and looked like someone who flunked a jennie cragi diet program. It was hard to talk to him until he could get the 'cheetos' crumbs off his lips/mouth.

    I suspect he was actually an undercover agent for frito-lay who pretended to be night watch for the medical complex while actually spying on the nearby multi-plex theater concession food bar. I'm so paranoid.
    *****
    it appears (at this point in the news coverage) this guy is a disgruntled 'discovery' employee with a 'save the planet sign'.

    He should be down on the gulf shooting and taking hostage guys who work for 'bp' (british petroleum).

    Now we have every cop in maryland and guys from wdc who want some of this. My guess is one of them or most will want or need to fire a shot so they can (in debriefing) claim they need to retire due to 'p.t.s.d.' (another acronym).

    I have it from vietnam. They don't tell me it's p.t.s.d. They just say i'm nuts, rude, crude and socially unacceptable. Then they say i am getting better while at the same time restricting me from any communication with any va personnel? I'm so confused.

    In the mid 90's varo (call it an acronym) i call it a cluster-****; sent their xo from honolulu and his flunky from maui to kona for one of their self congratulatory va celebrations.

    I was there. There was a large flat huge plate cake or whatever you call those things, uh... Sheet cakes i think.

    He made his speech and i came up behind him and put my left hand on the back of his head and my right hand on the back of his neck and buried his face in the 'sheet'/ s**t cake.

    They asked me to leave. Cake assault. Larry, moe and curly joe got away with it constantly with pies?

    Meanwhile back in reality land i'm still trying to total up the 'attrition' cost of the latest pair of muslims bound for yemen. I'm sure the guys in amsterdam will break them and get the information in ways we can't since their country is being overrun by muslims and the muslims use the place like a 7-11 quick shop which more than likely scares the bejesus outta the hindu's that run those places.

    Got to git to it. Chores n' stuff (it's called being married); wife, one, individual, each.

    Have to make some phone calls about now and prep the s.u.'s (spouse unit) dinner; another acronym. Not s.u. But dinner.
    Bill o' fare will more than likely be 'terrorist chicken'.

    Mostly hawaiian spices with a touch of spicy curry. You eat it then about an hour later feel a need to destroy something.

    The war on america continues: As of 8/30/2010

    Well it would appear the attack on america is still on-going. Not that it ever stopped; it's just that there are so many the media can't keep up with the incidents unless one really stands out; like yesterday, 8/30/2010.

    Seems a couple of guys (clearly muslim by name and foreign birth) tried a little switcher- roo. I.e., we be going that way and the luggage the other.

    Now they were arrested like some before them after making it from the usa to amsterdam. I'm still wondering why no one has mentioned their names in relation to the so called 'no fly list', or any list. Muslim names on an international flight should get someone's attention and it's not profiling either.

    Then again; international flights require i think that the luggage on the flight matches the passenger; but somehow in this incident they found away around it.

    They made a didi-mau for amsterdam and the luggage ended up in 'memphis, tn.'? Odd.

    So what do they find (or at least as is revealed in the media) they find a bag with three cell phones taped to a pepto-bismo bottle and i think sandwiched in between a std. Issue terrorist 'box cutter' blade and two knives?

    Meanwhile back at the hoover bldg. In wdc, et al places lots of people are tasked with trying to figure this one out. Was it an attempt; if so to what end or was it a 'trial run'?

    Either way it is once again their war of attrition against us. Imagine the costs that have been rung up since this happened; and it ain't over.

    None of this stuff was in carry on luggage but 'checked' luggage that some how didn't follow their flight?

    Cell phones taped together? A box cutter and two knives and a bottle of pepto-bismo. (not sure if the bottle was empty or full). Note on otc medications such as that; these bottles generally come with a hard plastic shrink like seals to show if the bottle has ever been opened.

    *many years ago somewhere for some reason some nut tampered with a bottle of tylenol; after that incident now you see tamper proof seals on lots of things.*

    detail were not revealed in the news. Actually conflicting reports said the bottle was full; while another said it was empty. Either way why tape three cell phones to a plastic bottle full or empty?

    I imagine like any other incident of this type there are some things not revealed.

    You can look up the ingredients of pept-bismo on the search engine of your choice; you perty much get the same information on the ingredients.

    It also comes in tablet/capsule form as well otc. Many people want to take the stuff; but don't like the liquid form hence the tablet form. It's available in virtually any mkt with otc drugs. The terrorists selected the bottled version for some reason over the tablet version.

    It is primarily used by most for anti-diarrheal or sometimes for gastric acid reflux. It comes under other names such as maalox, etc.

    The primary or most important ingredient in pepto-bismo like other anti-diarrheal medications is 'loperamide' (hope that is spelled correctly). It slows down the our little colonic huastra while giving (buying) one time to absorb water in a loose stool that otherwise would cause one to drop everything and run for the loo.

    Absorbed water is then passed via the renal system. It begs the question why have it taped to three cell phones?

    Generally, when flying into the united states it is more or less safe to drink the water so to speak; while if leaving the country for some foreign destination one generally doesn't want to drink the water (unless it's bottled).

    The only usa city i can think of where you don't want to drink the water is wdc. There is so much clorox in it you can do laundry without bleach. It's in the water, ice, coffee, anything they add water too tastes like clorox.

    If you o.d. On this stuff (pepto-bismo), you get a bad case of constipation. A common problem in the senate/house during a filibuster. It's also considered a creamer additive to coffee (a natural laxative) at i.r.s. Because, well... They're full of it.

    I don't get the three cell phones taped to the bottle that is in luggage and of course not as a carry on. What? The guy is going to want to call pepto-bismo's 800 number for tips?

    Like the other incidents of this type when no more information is released the media will drop it and move on to other issues. Still, these incidents happen almost daily and cost us a fortune.

    Now the so called 'underwear' bomber (i prefer to call him 'hot-pants'), was supposed to have had a bottle of something in his underwear that could potentially blow a hole in the fuselage of the plane he was on.

    Something went wrong. He failed. Or perhaps his control set him up. Just to see what would happen. Had it been real; then hot pants would have triggered the device over the atlantic ocean and not on the tarmac in detroit. Which of course failed.

    That incident is still costing us a chunk of change.

    Haven't seen the news yet this morning. It's still early here in hawaii. I'll turn it on in a bit and see if any new stuff has been released.

    Meanwhile i have to check my fishbowl full of spare change to see if i can afford many more of incidents of attrition.

    AS FOR THE 'ATTACK ON AMERICA' UNDER MY WEB PAGE YOU WILL FIND A NEW ONE POSTED. HE'S A PIECE OF WORK. TO MY DISDAIN THIS PARTICULAR 'S.O.B.' IS A RESIDENT OF MAUI, HAWAII. RATHER EMBARRASSING. SOLD OUT TO THE CHINESE.

    ANYONE WHO WISHES TO READ ABOUT HIM OR ANY OTHER TRAITOR/TERRORIST; (I COMBINED THEM LAST YEAR SINCE THERE ARE SO MANY); YOU CAN GO TO MY URL WEB PAGE:

    CLICK ON 'TRAITORS' AND THAR YA GO. IT'S A WORK IN PROGRESS WITH ALOT OF THEM PENDING. A REALLY BIG LIST. PENDING.

    STILL WORKING ON THAT BLUE HYPER LINK THANG. JUST FIND THE TRAITORS PAGE AND CLICK ON THE LITTLE FLASHING BALL. MOST PAGES HAVE SOUND AND ALL ARE .WAV FILES SO IT LOADS FAST.

    I GUESS THE JANE FONDA TARGET ON MY MAIN PAGE WITH THE LITTLE GUY MARCHING OUT AND URINATING ON HER AS A SIGNATURE GRAPHIC WOULD OFFEND SOME DELICATE SENSES HERE. (SORRY SLICK). UNLESS YOUR AFRAID SHE'LL SUE YA. SHE HASN'T TRIED IT WITH ME. NOR HAS ANYONE COMPLAINED ABOUT THE HANOI JANE STICKER 'CALL HOME' EITHER.

    SHE IS ONE OF TWO AMERICANS DURING THE VIETNAM WAR WHO WENT TO THE HANIO GOVERNMENT ON BEHALF OF THEMSELVES AND NOT THE UNITED STATES TO PROMOTE OR EXTEND OR BLOCK THE 'THEN' ONGOING PEACE TALKS IN FRANCE. HANOI JANE BY DEFINITION IS A TRAITOR. SHE WAS NEVER PROSECUTED.

    HANOI HAD BEEN WATCHING OUR TELEVISION AND THE ANTI-WAR PROTESTS. THEY WERE ON THE VERGE OF SURRENDER FOR SOMETIME UNTIL JANE SHOWED UP. A HOLLYWOOD STAR WHO ONLY FUELED AND EXTENDED THE WAR AND LOTS OF AMERICAN LIVES WERE LOST.

    NOR WAS J. KERRY WHO WENT TO PARIS ON HIS OWN WITHOUT UNITED STATES GOV. AUTHORIZATION TO INTERVENE AND THAT IS 'TREASON' NO MATTER HOW YOU SLICE OR DICE IT. KERRY IS NOW A UNITED STATES SENATOR FROM MASS.

    AS A NAVY OFFICER HE WATCHED ANTI WAR PROTESTERS BURN THE FLAG AND DID NOTHING TO STOP THEM WHICH HE SHOULD HAVE. HE DID TAKE THE OATH; APPARENTLY HE DID NOT MEAN IT. PROBABLY RAISED HIS RIGHT HAND WHILE HIS 'LEFT' (NO PUN INTENDED) WAS BEHIND HIM WITH HIS FINGERS CROSSED.

    SOME GET AWAY WITH IT SOME DON'T.

    LAST TIME I HEARD; I THINK IT WAS A THIRD TIME ON A 60-MINUTES INTERVIEW SHE (HANOI JANE), ASKED IF THE VIETNAM VETERANS WOULD FORGIVE HER. THE HOST (WALTERS) SAID, 'I DOUBT IT'.

    I ALSO HAVE A STORY ABOUT HANOI JANE DUCKING REPORTERS SOME YEARS AGO IN LAS VEGAS.

    IT'S ABOUT 1308 HOURS HST AND I HAVE TO SHUT DOWN THIS BOX AND GIT TO BIDNESS. OTHERWISE I COULD BE ON HERE ALL DAYEM DAY. 'DAYEM' FIGURE IT OUT. HILLBILLY SPEAK. I AM ONE. I SPEAK IT FLUENTLY.

    Mahalo slick i found the b&w photo via mike amtower

    First: Larry zok i saw your message on this private message thingie but i never received an email when you called yesterday. 8/29/2010. I was expecting to find two emails from you on my email thing and not on this private message thing.

    Like i told ya on the phone keep the bucks. Don't insult me by returning it. If i can't attend pas' reunions i can support them or as in the past offer to pay someone else's way who can't afford it. Also tried to do the avatar bit; not sure if it will work or not. If not, don't mean nuth'n. Mahalo slick for getting that old b&w photo up.

    now then... The thread is called 'attack on america'.

    I would like anyone reading this to take any pocket change you might have handy and any counterfeit bills (also called federal reserve notes); and look at some of the coins and all of the currency.

    On most, not all coins and on the back of all currency you will read clearly the following: 'in god we trust'.

    Unless the current joint house/senate has their way then it might be changed to read: 'in allah we trust'.

    Personally i prefer 'in god we trust' which is to say i don't trust 'allah', allan greenspan or bernanke any further than i could toss them.

    The 'fed' is an international bank consortium that underwrites and supports the united states of america dollar. This means some of those foreign banks that support our 'federal reserve notes' could be muslim states. Wouldn't that be irony?

    In the old days if you looked at the top of your currency it did not say: Federal reserve note. It said, 'silver certificate'.

    Once our currency was backed by gold and silver. What happened? We..........llllllllll .... What happened is foreign countries horded the silver certificates and like an 'i.o.u.' they brought them back and redeemed them for gold then silver; until we no longer had enough of these metals to support the currency. Hence the creation of the federal reserve.

    In those days when currency was a 'silver certificate' it was worth it's face value. A dollar was worth a dollar; however under today's federal reserve system a dollar is not worth much.

    It's a promise for all debts public and private. It only has value as long as the federal government pays the fed monthly interest on the amount they have 'lent' to us to support the dollar.

    Needless to say these foreign countries including muslim countries rich in oil and countries like china have us on a short leash.

    Anytime we default on the interest payments to the fed then they can foreclose faster than a sub-prime mortgage gone south.

    Basically the united states becomes a giant 'yard sale'.

    We pay billions on the interest to the fed without ever touching the principal. Like paying the interest on your credit card debt without paying off the card.

    Remember in a prior post i said i doubt few people know the difference between the national debt and the deficit.

    The national debt is the total amount we owe anyone which we could pay eventually if it were not for the national deficit.

    The deficit undermines the debt by creating one way trade agreements with foreign entities in their favor. You can buy all the japanese cars you want in this country right from the plants they have in this country to build them.

    What you can't do is export say a million jeep grand cherokees to japan. They won't allow it.

    I see from my unique little corner of the world a strange phenomena. We have lots of japanese tourists come here daily.

    They can spend like you can't imagine because their currency is so valuable. However when these tourists get off the plane and rent a car, do you think they rent a subaru or nissan or toyota? Nope. They rent jeeps. They rent convertible mustangs. They rent fancy american town cars. Stuff they can't get in japan.

    This one way trade agreement is just one of many one way trade agreements that combined are what we call the trade deficit which as a direct impact on the national debt.

    How do we stop it? Well. Just about every politician will tell you it can't be done. It can.

    We have one of those sneaky 'ace cards' up our sleeve we can play anytime although if we do the results would certainly be a fast track to war with any countries involved.

    All we have to do is confiscate their land and plants. Send them packing and then demand a trade agreement in our favor. Of course our political body congress won't do that and it would more than likely as stated be a fast track to war with some countries; not all but some.

    We have always had the power to do this. Those foreign countries know it too. You betcha! They know it!!!

    I mean come on people. We have been the innovators since the industrial revolution. Why do we have russian made trains running on our railroad tracks? We do. I have photos of them in our so called 'heartland' smack dab in iowa. Russian made trains. Not american. Russian.

    We are under attack by the federal reserve; our real enemies and oddly enough most of our allies. Anything wrong with this picture? Anyone?

    Ya'll might think i'm a raving lunatic but this is how it is and has been for some time.

    Virtually everything you buy is made in china, japan or mexico, et al countries.

    Last november/2009 i contacted a large california based furniture company and ordered a large wall cabinet unit. It cost about 10 grand. When it arrived i found it was assembled in singapore, it's components were made in china and then it was shipped to the california company who re-shipped it to me.

    I'd love to see the money trail on that one.

    The attack on american also comes largely from within; by corporations who 'out source' to other countries to save money for themselves; not us.

    I recently had to retire my american flag and order a new one. I was surprised to see that it was made in the usa and not china.

    Apparently i got a jpg up....

    But mike gowan and email me anyhow. I still need to do the avatar bit and i have another jpg.

    Note the boots? I could never keep those things spit shined? Whenever i was in chu-lai it seemed to peeve alot of officer types. Actually i never could figure out that 'spit shined' thing. Who cares? Do it right and 30 minutes later start over.

    I suppose i could have spent 13 months just trying to polish boots. My shoes now days look perty much the same; i go bare foot alot. How do you spit shine sperry deck-siders?

    Mahalo nui mike

    A friend of mine with 1/7 (s-2) rvn, 66-67 sent me that video link yesterday. It was the first time i saw the flick. Yeah, it made my eyes leaky too.

    I just envy the heck outta you for being able to meet col. North not once but twice? Lucky buggah, you. I came close once when he was out here in hawaii ne and was over at kaneohe, mcas. I couldn't get there.

    Noticed your rvn era 'avatar' (if that is the correct word), boy oh boy; looks what happened to you happened to me. Age. Then i noticed you are this thread's moderator. And... Your in texas? Most excellent.

    While marines come from all over the country; i find it unusual that (in my research) a 'very' large number of them are from texas. Why is that? It has to be an 'alamo thang'.

    Not sure where that town of yours is. However i'll ask the wife since he is one of those honey-blonde natural born texicans along with that 'west texas' temper. I get some of that daily. By west texas i mean the lubbock or near by towns. Then it goes on into east new mexico around the hobb's area. Meanest nurse i ever married.

    I am not very computer literate when it comes to these on line board things. I usually restrict my computer time to emails and bidness (okay.... Business). Finance n' stuff.

    If you could cut me a hus; i'd like to post my email addy and ask you to do that 'avatar' thing; so you can post my jpg on this thread (or i assume once it's done it appears on any thread, dunno?) i have never been able to finger this stuff out.

    My email is: ferrell@alohabroadband.net

    don't make no never mind if it's upper/lower case just make sure if you give it a shot it as typed. No spaces or stuff. Other than the (dot) net (.net).

    If you do email just make sure your to and from address is the same or my computer will choke on it. Auto junk mail.

    I have one available rvn photo i can email (it's clean) and one of the few surviving pictures of me in rvn; this one i'm talking about was taken in chu-lai.

    I have a couple of others i recently tried to get wally beddoe to put up in the photo gallery but i can't find them so i guess he didn't. He must be busy and i do drive him crazy. I drive slick crazy too. It's what i do best.

    In the jpeg i'd like to send you; i'm not wearing a shirt or top or cover; just utes n' boots and my 1911 a1. And yes that is the way i stand other than at attention; even that is an effort. Been that way since i was a kid. Still stand that way even with a cane. Weird?

    Most look at it and go, 'what are ya? John wayne?'. Nope. It is just the way i stand.

    I used to be on a monthly mailing list for kaneohe mcas, hawaii's on base no rank exclusions for beer or who-hit-john (your preferred poison) and pupus (hawaiian for snacks or 'bar food') at the o' club. Of course it was too expensive to fly over there for that one hour fiesta at 1600 then try to catch a flight back to the big island and then the long drive to ka'u from kona airport so i never went.

    Esp. If your perty much half or mostly in the bag and driving not to mention the in-flight inter-island drink cart. And the wait for your flight at honolulu international in the 'blue parrot' bar.

    Every time anyone enters or exits the bar that big blue neon parrot screams. I wanted to shoot it. But they don't allow hand guns in the airport. Probably has something to do with middle eastern terrorists. Not to mention a blue neon parrot shortage.

    In those days with that much hootch i had no fear of flying. Since i'd already crashed on take off once via aloha airlines and shot down on take off once in vietnam in a uh-34d in an lz full of red smoking canisters. That hurt. Still does i think.

    I 'always' select the furthest rear seats (starboard) on flights. So on that aloha flight they taxi out to wait their turn to do their thang. My wife was with me. We had our seat belts on of course and the jet begain to accelerate really fast to get to that need for speed.

    They have to clear the high rise buildings over honolulu's business district or else one mistake and the place goes 'rent controlled condo' wid fries.

    I felt an unusal thud/bump then another and another within about 4 seconds of each other; so i reached over and grabbed the wife's seat belt and pulled it really tight while saying; 'your gonna hate what happens next' and it did. Long story. But common on inter-island flights in the islands.

    I could tell ya stories if there was a thread devoted to it! Like ever been in a plane on your final approach and find your inverted? I have.

    The marines come here frequently to train up north on the 'saddle road' area below mauna kea. I run into them all the time. Nearby (up there) is a fenced off place on parker ranch land; once called 'camp tarawa'.

    This is the place where marines trained on two cinder cones called (hope this isn't censored but that is what they called it): 'nellie's tits'. Not vulgar just usmc 'colorful language' as it were.

    They had no idea what they were training for but the place was selected because those two cinder cones (mini volcanic hills) closely resembled the two major volcanic cones or hills the marines would take on iwo jima.

    Over 5,000 of them were there and they were not told why or where or what they were training for until they were at sea.

    Where was i? I got off track; and never road amtrak?

    Now i remember. The video clip. Something similar but not the same happened to me in rvn which i will detail someday. A story hard to believe but like pop-a-smoke likes to say; 'hey you can't make this stuff up!'

    also a clarification: 'not all muslims are arabs and not all arabs are muslim'. Muslims are arabs; however most of the people of israel are arabs and not muslims. There is a difference.

    Please email me if you wish; and i will check for your email tomorrow (monday) aug. 30th. It's about 1000 hours hst here and time to shut the box off; i've been up since 0100 hours and i feel every minute of it.

    semper fi!

    Ps: I am going to try something in this additional options thing to see if it works; i doubt it but i'll give it a shot.

    re: Ollie North

    Thanks Doc.

    THAT is a GREAT piece of video.

    BTW --- it ALWAYS chokes me up.

    He is also one of my favorites. I've had the pleasure of meeting him
    twice and talking to him.

    Something i found interesting

    MANY OF YOU MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE SEEN AND LISTENED TO THIS BUT I HAVE NO IDEA WHATSOEVER WHERE TO POST IT SO I GUESS I WILL STICK WITH THIS THREAD AND JUST POST THE LINK HERE. NOT SURE IF I CAN POST IT AS A HYPER-LINK (JUST CLICK N' GO) BUT IF NOT, THEN ONE CAN ALWAYS COPY AND PASTE IT TO THE BROWSER YOU USE AND GO TO IT AS FOLLOWS:
    _______

    http://www.nragive.com/ringoffreedom/index.html
    _____________
    THIS IS A VIDEO/SPEECH GIVEN BY LT. COL. OLIVER NORTH (USMC), TO ME HE IS A TRUE AMERICAN HERO. HE DOES NOT MINCE WORDS; EVEN AS HE WAS SUBJECTED TO A SENATE BEATING AS ONCE HE HAD TO ENDURE UNDER ONE (THEN) SENATOR AL GORE. (YOU KNOW, THAT GUY WHO INVENTED THE INTERNET). MY PERSONAL OPINION COMPELS ME TO STATE THAT COL. NORTH DOES NOT CARE FOR 'FENCE SITTING' BUREAUCRATS.

    PASS IT ON IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN/HEARD THIS. OR NOT. YOUR CHOICE.

    I COULD TELL YOU A SIMILAR VIETNAM WAR STORY BUT I'D MORE THAN LIKELY BE CENSORED AGAIN. SEEMS TO BE A POPULAR TREND THESE DAYS IN THIS COUNTRY WITH SO CALLED FREEDOM OF SPEECH. OH WELL, SUCH IS LIFE.

    PS: CONGRATS TO THE GUY IN THIS THREAD WHO USED THE TERM 'RAT'S ASS' AND GOT AWAY WITH IT. YOU MUST TELL ME HOW YOU DO THAT SOMEDAY.

    More on attack on america

    Short note here by my standards (you should see my email).

    I'm not certain what the rules & regs are for posting here given the use of language; although i do see a dramatic difference in what is 'allowed' here versus what we get in the pas magazine/newsletter. I'm confused. It must be my personal case of 'c.r.a.f.t.' and acronym that that needs translation if ya'll know what it means. For those who do not email me at: ferrell@alohabroadband.net. I will 'slain' it to the acronym that is somewhat graphic to those with sensibilities.

    I hope that ya'll were watching cnn yesterday and the day before where a guy approx. 22 years old enlisted in the army and after all that training at 'your expense' made it to the 101st airborne. A distinguished unit. You don't get there unless you go thru a lot of stuff. It's not exactly an option on your recruiter's enlistment promise.

    Never the less this guy as refused to deploy to the middle east because he is muslim and thinks it is illegal (per his religious beliefs) to kill other muslims.

    He knowingly took the pledge we all did and now that he is being deployed to the sand box is 'refusing' to go. It begs the question. 'why enlist in the first place and cost the usa all that training'?

    Muslims as i have stated will kill each other when they have no other to kill (namely we 'infidels') see history 101.

    Now the army is sitting on a hard spot trying to figure out what to do with this guy? He refused to go; not unlike the guy from hawaii who was not muslim. Then again we have to think of the so called muslim chaplain that waxed several people in ft. Hood, tx. (if i am correct and if not correct me on the locale).

    This newest guy well trained in the 101st airborne didn't get their by a recruiter's promise; that is impossible. He got there thru his own tenacity or hard work.

    One can not just enlist in the army and tell the recruiter i want to be in the 101st airborne. It doesn't work that way; you have to go thru lots of training (esp. With preliminary training) thru the 82nd airborne then and 'if' you pass that you may or may not be selected by the 101st for further training. So.... What do we have now?

    Well, we have a young guy with all the training who will more than likely be discharged with a dishonorable and knowing the current administration he will more than likely not do any brig time before discharge and will be cut loose on the streets.

    What you should be thinking about now is .... Whoa! *ph*uc*k otherwise known to me as my cantonese kitchen god for cooking.

    This guy is ripe for picking by al quaeda (spell it like you want just so it comes out as 'dangerous'). And you thought padillia was a problem?
    ********
    in my last post the ref. To hd/50/50 and i could be wrong on the 'hd' part due to 'c.r.a.f.t.' means or refers to a lethal dose of gamma radiation and particulates that would kill half of the exposed within a given time depending on the source and exposure; lots of variables n' stuff.
    ******
    this guy (mentioned above) is a time bomb per jihad waiting to go off. He just needs the control to tell him, how, when and where. Like the others before him.
    ******
    regarding other 'breaking news' i could go on and on but if you think; carter (today), clinton, jihad jane, hanoi jane and of course a guy named 'kerry' are confusing then your in the same rice paddy as me.

    It gets confusing. The big 'o' likes it that way; all rhetoric (talk) as in all 'talk and no cattle'.
    *********
    i will pray (if that is not a violation of pas posting regs), that americans will see thru the ruse and take the time to vote. If you do not vote you can't complain. If you vote and lose at least you tried. Samo-samo vietnam, 'comme il faut'?
    *********
    i was allowed to smoke (dod gave me free cigs) but could not have a beer or vote. Sucks huh? I never smoked until rvn then when it was free i got hooked by dod and now the va is telling me i must stop????? Why? My age? You'd think the va would encourage aging vets to smoke as much as they can afford to kill them selves so the va can write them off. I told this to the va recently and they hung up on me? Not sure why? I seem to offend lots of people wherever i go including this little opus and of course ace hardware. Another topic not for this thread.
    ********
    in the last week alone i have had about 20 people tell me i am rude. Imagine that? I feel somewhat perky.
    *******
    okay; enough of that stuff ( would have used a four letter word for 'stuff') but while the pas board will censor that word; ted turner; does not. Wierd? Actually i have a very good vocabulary. It's not needed much these days with generation 'what ever it is'? X? Y? Z?
    ********
    since my last post there have been a sunray of 'incidents' again the war of attrition. Does anyone keep track of this stuff like i do? If it were medical i would call it a virus that is spreading with no vaccine. Fairly simple concept.
    *******
    moreover it is not spreading like a flu virus which is perty nasty; but it is spreading on a more exponential level. Not sure how to explain that. Maybe like the difference between a an earthquake that is rated say a 3.5 on the scale vs: One that is rated a 4.0. The difference is staggering and most people think a 4.0 minus a 3.5 is just a .5 difference. Nothing could be further from the truth. I really don't have a clue as how to explain this.
    ******
    okay i'll give it a shot. I know most of you have heard the riddle: Which would you rather have? A million dollars or a penny that doubles everyday? Ans. Is the penny. It will dwarf the million bucks inside a month given all things normal which means it's iffy given the director of the federal reserve....(i'm on a roll... ) rumor has it that fed. Chair bernake (spelling) has thousands of tons of pennies somewhere in the bottom of a vast canyon. His ira/k-plan i guess?
    *******
    unless you were born yesterday; ya'll might remember the old revolutionary story of paul revere; where he said if one lamp was burning (lit) the british were coming and if two were lit they were not or vice versa i can't remember which due to 'c.r.a.ft.' and that is not the point. He had a warning system ready to go. It worked!!!!
    ******
    now we have all the technology in the world and some you can't imagine and these geeks can't tell us if, when or how the muslims are coming; but at least we know like paul revere that sooner or later; most likely sooner they will be here in the open; not behind vague cells that no one can pin down. Anyone got your pyramid aluminum, alien hat on to get these subtle messages? Just curious.
    ******
    oh ... I nearly forgot; the war we initiated in response to saddam's iraq. This should get the attention and at least some reply from some bomber pilot out there in pas land......
    ******
    remember the media coverage then? The attack was called' shock & awe'. There was (as ya'll can see no 'shock n' awe') just lots of missiles and bombings of iraq. No nukes.
    ******
    now for you bombers with knowledge you know this is true; and it was just lots of bombs and missiles and naval gunfire.
    *****
    but i would like a reply on this little tidbit: 'shock n' awe' was never about nukes or naval gunfire or stealth bombers dropping bombs on bagdad. It was about a non-nuke bomb we had that was 'never' (let me say that again; never used).

    It was never used. And we still have it. It is a conventional bomb to be dropped from a bomber. It is not in any way shape or form nuclear. Understand that.
    ******
    the bomb or bombs were never used in 'shock n' awe' because while they were non-nuclear bombs they were so powerful that when detonated they would actually create a small nuclear detonation. Just from the sheer size of the explosion. In other words the bomb was so powerful that it would blow and create gamma wave radiation and particulates too. If used; ergo it was not used.
    ********
    if you think i'm high on beer email me. I was surprised when the so called 'shock n' awe' thing never happened with media in hotels in bagdad on the ground. Had it been they wouldn't be reporting i guess? As i recall most of them saw all the arty but no shock n' awe and wondered just what that was supposed to mean. They'll never know.
    *******
    had it been used there would be nor have any need to go into bagdad and take it street by steet against the red-guard. It would have looked like nagasaki 1945. Plus lots of dead media guys.
    *******
    yes we have bombs that are not nukes but are as powerful as nukes and i defy anyone to argue that. Most of you pas guys are pilots and or fast movers you know it all.
    *******
    replies should be interesting (failing that the viewer reads).
