    Obama warned Boston voters today that Martha Coakley must win or his socialist experiment to remake American banking, energy, and health care, etc. will be doomed. President Barack Obama: “We’ve got so much work left to do. And, as much progress as we’ve made, I can’t do it alone. I need leaders like Martha by my side so that we can kick it into high gear; so that we can finish what we’ve started.” FOX News analyst Carl Cameron: For what’s at stake. President Obama himself has now said that he needs this win because the country’s ability to move…

Gunny G: Old Sea Stories…

January 17, 2010 Leave a comment

Well, here it is a slow, quiet  Sundy nite–in-between-obama big sh!tties, I guess. I ran across some real old (1999) posts from one of my old forums.

Thought I would go ahead and post it here.

Gunny Gaines,
Looking for some info on an incident that reportedly happened in about 1954 or so at MCAS CPNC when some enlisted Marines flew an R4Q from Cherry Point to New Orleans. Not NAP’s but perhaps a Crew Chief and a Radio Operator. Did it on a dare or something.
Any info.

Thanks,
Big Al

I was at 2dMAW, CPNC from 1958-59.

I do recall–vaguely–the story, but little of the deatils.

I was reminded of that story lately when I picked up some used books by WEB Griffin (novels) where he has a T/Sgt (NAP, I think) flying a plane from either San Diego or Hawaii, against orders, to a carrier at sea.

At CP, I recall also an R4Q going down short of the runway, one stormy nite.

Regret I recall very little of the story you ask about.

Best,

Obama Speaks From Pulpit, Noting Progress And Difficulty In America ["Speaking...Like A Preacher"]

Obama Speaks From Pulpit, Noting Progress And Difficulty In America ["Speaking...Like A Preacher"]

Obama Speaks From Pulpit, Noting Progress And Difficulty In America The president visits a church founded by freed slaves and where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. sometimes spoke.

By Mark Silva January 17, 2010

Reporting from Washington – President Obama, speaking today from the pulpit of a church where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. sometimes spoke, called on the congregation to rally around the spirit that had helped their ancestors pursue a long road to freedom. “It’s that progress that allowed me to be here today,” said Obama, the first African American president.

The president, who doesn’t frequently attend Sunday church services in Washington and has not found a permanent congregation for his family in the capital, joined in the services this morning at the Vermont Avenue Baptist Church. The president arrived with First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha.

The church, founded in 1866 by seven freed slaves, originally was known as the Fifth Baptist Church of Washington, D.C.

“It feels like a family,” Obama told the congregation. There are at least a couple of occasions that might have prompted today’s outing: the deaths of tens of thousands of Haitians in an earthquake that has shaken all of the Americas, as well as the birthday of the slain civil rights leader King, which is celebrated on Monday with a national holiday.

“We gather here on the Sabbath at a time of extreme difficulty for our nation and the world,” the president said, speaking much like a preacher from the pulpit. “We are not here just to ask the Lord for his blessing. We’re also here to call on the memory of one of his servants, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.”

Gunny G: Now, About All That Brouhaha Regarding The New USMC Trademark and Licensing Program…

For example:
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2398969/posts

The above thread would show that many of us had read the new directive and understood, or misunderstood, the licensing requirements to pertain to both commercial and personal cases; Marines as well as merchants.  I do recall mention of “DOD employees” being excluded, but no mention of anyone else specifically. Perhaps I missed that.

The Supreme Court’s Attacks on Freedom

The Dirty Dozen: How Twelve Supreme Court Cases Radically Expanded Government and Eroded Freedom by Robert A. Levy and William Mellor (Sentinel, 2008); 299 pages.

Americans like lists. Most often, we get “Top Ten” lists, but this book is a top dozen list, a list of the most damaging Supreme Court decisions during and since the New Deal era. The authors, two lawyers with strong libertarian philosophies, set out to show which decisions have had the most detrimental impact by expanding the realm of government coercion and depriving people of their liberty. This, they correctly observe, is a target-rich environment. The Supreme Court has been blundering along a statist/collectivist path for many decades and each passing term brings new decisions that make constitutionalists hang their heads in despair. “Seldom,” Levy and Mellor write, “has the ratchet of the Court’s decisions turned toward greater individual liberty. To the contrary, the Court has further and further restricted the freedoms that Americans should enjoy as a birthright.”

Flashback: Obama Regulation Czar Advocated Removing People’s Organs Without Explicit Consent

Cass Sunstein, President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), has advocated a policy under which the government would “presume” someone has consented to having his or her organs removed for transplantation into someone else when they die unless that person has explicitly indicated that his or her organs should not be taken.
