Gunny G: That Old Cowboy Pic….

December 24, 2008 Leave a comment

The pic of the old cowboy (below) used to be hanging on the bulkhead somewhere in Sam’s Town Casino in Vegas.

Only, the caption read something like…..”When I hit the lottery I’m gonna spend 80% of it on wimmin an’ booze–the other 20%, I guess I’ll just spend foolishly.”

They had copies of the pic for sale in the emprium there–I never got around to picking up a copy.

Hunt Is On For Phony POWs

Rampant false claims spawn cottage industry of war watchdogs

By Steve Mills, Tribune reporter

The story that Richard Barr Cayton has told of his Vietnam War service features a torturous march through the jungle in January 1971, his arms tied to a branch across the back of his neck and shoulders. He was a prisoner of war, he said, until a bombing distracted his captors, and he and a fellow soldier escaped.

Cayton recounted the episode for a Texas newspaper in 2002, saying that he and the other Army Ranger, David Meyer, traveled by night and hid during the day until they were found.

For all its drama, Cayton’s story of captivity and a flight to freedom is not supported by military records or interviews with his fellow soldiers. Records show that Cayton was a soldier but never a prisoner of war, and he admitted that in an interview with the Tribune.

Moscow–Russian investigators charged Tuesday that volunteers from the United States and several other countries fought on the side of Georgia in its August war with Russia.

Aleksandr Bastrykin, chairman of an investigative committee with the Russian prosecutor?s office, said the mercenaries included nationals of the U.S., Ukraine, Czech Republic and Turkey, Russian news agencies reported.

Russian officials previously have accused the U.S. and Ukraine of sending servicemen to take part in the fighting–claims both countries have denied.

The Mysterious Shadow: Code Name Obama

This document alone raises a big question. It is his registration in the State of Illinois for his license to practice Law. The document has a space to list any other names that have been used. Even though he has used other names, this shows, “None”. The other names he has used, that we currently know are: Barack Hussein Obama, Barry Soetoro, Barry Obama, Barack Dunham and Barry Dunham. During the Presidential debates with Senator John McCain, Obama never once addressed his opponent as “Senator McCain” or “Mr. McCain”. Most people, who have any common courtesy at all, when speaking to their elders, or a senator, would address that person with some degree of respect and use his proper title. Senator McCain has more experience than Obama, is older, has risked his life for his country and does address other people, whatever their position, with respect. Obama, with a look of contempt, addressed Senator McCain as “John this” or “John that”.

Internet Overtakes Newspapers As News Source

The internet, which emerged this year as a leading source for campaign news, has now surpassed all other media except television as a main source for national and international news.

Currently, 40% say they get most of their news about national and international issues from the internet, up from just 24% in September 2007. For the first time in a Pew survey, more people say they rely mostly on the internet for news than cite newspapers (35%). Television continues to be cited most frequently as a main source for national and international news, at 70%.

“The essence of government is power, and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse.” –James Madison

California Attorney General Jerry Brown (once upon a time “Governor Moonbeam”) wants a do-over, a mulligan, a second bite at the apple. He has changed his position on the state’s new same-sex marriage ban. Now, in the wake of a cosmic epiphany and revisionist interpretation of the state Constitution, he is now urging the state Supreme Court to void Proposition 8.

Despite 52% of the California electorate having spoken in support of the institution and tradition of marriage, Jerry wants the courts to trump the people.

In what is being called a dramatic reversal, Attorney General Jerry Brown filed a legal brief saying Proposition 8, the measure that amended the California Constitution to limit marriage to a man and a woman is itself unconstitutional. His fuzzy argument is it deprives a minority group of a fundamental right. Bullfeathers! Same sex ‘marriage’ is not a “fundamental right”. It may be a presumed or a preferred right but it is not a “fundamental right”.
