…..The following remarks, I find in the book, The United States Marine Corps In Books And The Performing Arts, by Richard L. Hemenez, Col USMCR (Ret.), McFarland & Company, 2001
The following, in part, regarding Ermey and FMJ…
“…Ermey, a former Marine, is also credited as a technical advisor…a heated side feud with Kubrick over Lee Ermey…labeled him ‘a fucking pogue lifer’…There was some negative reaction to Ermey’s DI speech…It wasn’t until later that Lee Ermey went Hollywood and became R.Lee Ermey…you might think he wrote his own lines, except that much of the dialogue comes directly from Mr. Hasford’s book…”
“…In a Leatherneck magazine interview, Webb noted that a large part of his admiration for the Corps stemmed from an uncle who enlisted during WW II at age 38. His name–Frank Smith, PFC Smith was later honored as the name of Joe Friday‘s partner…”…..

Planned renovation to the White House means the next president—whoever it is—may be displaced from the Oval Office for as long as a year.
Judicial Watch filed a freedom of information request for documents pertaining to the possible leak of the information relating to the killing of Osama bin Laden to a Hollywood producer in August 2011. The administration has yet to cough up the information, so Judicial Watch is suing them.The DOD admitted receiving the FOIA request on August 22, 2011, but advised Judicial Watch that “at this time, we are unable to make a release determination on your request within twenty 20 working days” of August 9, which would have been by September 6, 2011.
COMMENT FROM ALEX JONES: Maybe The Onion should also make jokes about the Nazis mowing down Jewish women, as this group of avowed-Eugenicists, too, acted out murder in the name of saving the earth. Or what about the armed troops who burned down Ugandan villages and killed women & children last year on behalf of a British carbon trading company linked to the World Bank? That, too, was a trendy, cool environmental acts of genocide to save us from global warming.
The prominent satire rag The Onion continues to bleed humor from the razor’s-edge of reality in an article that spoofs calls to kill off more than 2 billion people from the earth’s population ‘to save humanity.’
Satire Article Quips At Least 2 Billion Must Die to Save Earth onion 2billion dieThe January 26 piece, entitled “Scientists: ‘Look, One-Third Of The Human Race Has to Die for Civilization to Be Sustainable, So How Do We Want to Do This?“, so-closely reflects the real positions calling for coercive population control from prominent pseudo-scientists who’ve dominated policy, government posts and NGO organizations for the past hundred years that one can only laugh in horror.
Barack Hussein Obama’s Georgia counsel, Michael Jablonski, had stated that it was “unreasonable1” to expect Obama to attend the ballot challenge hearing in Atlanta on January 26 at 9:00 a.m. ET.The White House has been posting Obama’s activities day by day this week2, and the schedule now reflects that his schedule was open on Thursday morning.
However, The Post & Email has been told by a source that Obama watched the entire hearing remotely. Is that why his morning schedule was open?At the beginning of this week, the presidential schedule was devoid of entries3.
Various external reports were published each morning stating that he planned a trip to the West beginning on Wednesday following his State of the Union address. Currently, the schedule shows4 that he spent time in Nevada on Thursday and then flew to Michigan for an address on Friday morning.During the early afternoon hours on Friday, Obama went to Cambridge, MD and was scheduled to return to the White House at 3:00 p.m. for a 3:30 meeting with Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton5.
There seems to be some confusion regarding what happened after the 26 January Obama-eligibility Georgia ballot hearings conducted in Deputy Chief Judge Michael Malihi’s court. Part of the reason for the confusion may be that a seeming mountain of evidence was presented in Sand to the court, along with answers given by expert witnesses as to Mr. Obama’s original and current ineligibility to hold the Office of President of the United States. The problem with his even being allowed to run for the office in the first place appears to be the incontrovertible fact that he was never vetted as to his eligibility. Those who wished to actually check Candidate Obama’s qualifications for the highest post in the USA were defamed and mocked by the media.
Currently, articles claiming that Obama’s name has, already been disallowed from appearing as a presidential candidate on the Georgia ballot are inaccurate. What has, thus far, occurred are the following.
1. During the 26 January hearing, three attorneys (including Atty. Orly Taitz who was the primary attorney and instrumental in bringing this case to the court) brought witnesses and evidence before Judge Malihi’s court strongly suggesting Mr. Obama does not meet the Constitutional requirements to hold the Office of President of the United States of America
2. Prior to the hearing, all three attorneys met with Judge Malihi in his chambers

Why Should the State License Drivers? (“You shouldn’t need a license to drive a car any more than you need one to use a computer or ride a horse”)
WITH MY DRIVER’S LICENSE expiring in February, I made a trip to the Registry of Motor Vehicles last week to renew it. To my astonishment, I was in and out of the RMV branch at the Watertown Mall in just 15 minutes.
From past experience, I had expected much worse. When I renewed my license five years ago — at a facility the Registry whimsically dubbed a “License Express” — I had to wait for an hour and a quarter before being served. An earlier renewal had required two trips to the Registry: The first one proved futile when the clerk shut off the computer at closing time, curtly telling the 11 people in line that they would have to come back another day.
So it was a pleasant surprise when my latest encounter with the Registry proved so quick and painless.
Of course it would have been even more painless to renew my driver’s license online, but when I tried to do so my application was rejected. It turns out the Registry was listing me under multiple records; the system had generated a new one whenever my address changed, and it was unable to merge them — or to issue a new license — unless I appeared in person. “But I’ve lived at the same address for 15 years,” I said to the clerk. He shrugged. “It should be OK next time,” he told me.
Yet why should there have to be a next time? Why should keeping an ordinary driver’s license up to date oblige anyone to deal with a government agency, in person or online? I hadn’t even realized that my license was about to expire until an airport security agent pointed it out to me the last time I flew out of Logan. The Registry no longer sends renewal notices; and woe betide the motorist who gets pulled over with an expired license, an infraction that can trigger a fine of up to $1,000, not to mention a potential arrest.
Try to imagine Visa or Discover requiring you to remember when your credit card is about to expire, and making you get in line at a branch office or go online to renew it. On the contrary: They do the remembering and renew your card automatically. Before the old one expires, you get a new one in the mail. And if there is an anomaly in your account, they typically flag it and alert you right away.
In the private economy, automatic renewals are routine. From Netflix subscriptions to homeowner’s insurance to newspaper delivery, vendors and service providers of every description make it simple to keep your account up-to-date. Your antivirus software and 401(k) investments can be put on autopilot, refreshing at regular intervals unless you choose to opt out. Why shouldn’t your driver’s license work the same way?
Maybe the real question is why the state should license drivers in the first place.

Obama attorney knows eligibility hearing was disaster for the president

Though we’ll not know the outcome of the Georgia hearing regarding ballot eligibility for the nation’s number 1 undocumented worker until the first part of February, Barack Obama’s high-powered attorney apparently suffered an attack of rapid, shallow breathing just before the courtroom drama was about to unfold.
Many who are self-proclaimed “conservatives,” “patriots,” etc. ARE NOT !!!!!
Former Bush administration speechwriter Michael Gerson, who is now a columnist for the company newspaper of the company town known as Washington, D.C., recently authored yet another hysterical neocon rant over the Ron Paul candidacy. Ron Paul is on a “quest to undo the Party of Lincoln,” blared Gerson’s headline. Every freedom-loving, patriotic American can only hope and pray that Ron Paul succeeds.
Gerson’s tone is dripping with venomous hatred when he accuses Ron Paul of being some kind of nut by calling the Civil War “senseless” and of saying that Lincoln ruled with an iron fist. Generations of historians have also called the Civil War “senseless” or something similar. “The bumbling generation” is how some historians describe the Civil War-era politicians who plunged the nation into war, the most preeminent of whom was Lincoln himself. But when Ron Paul refers to the war in that way what he has in mind is the true historical fact that all other countries of the world that ended slavery in the nineteenth century – including most of the Northern states in the U.S – did so peacefully. The British, French, Spaniards, Dutch, Swedes, Danes, and others ended slavery in Argentina, Colombia, Chile, all of Central America, Mexico, Bolivia, Uruguay, the French and Danish colonies, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela without resorting to the mass murder and destruction of war. (See Jim Powell. Greatest Emancipations: How the West Ended Slavery; Robert Fogel and Stanley Engerman, Time on the Cross: The Economics of American Negro Slavery; and Slavery in New York, published by the New York Historical Society).
U.S. Ambassador Michael McFaul, Obama’s man in Moscow, who just took up his post, has received a rude reception. And understandably so.In 1992, McFaul was the representative in Russia of the National Democratic Institute, a U.S. government-funded agency whose mission is to promote democracy abroad.
The NDI has been tied to color-coded or Orange revolutions such as those that dethroned regimes in Serbia, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia and Lebanon.
The project miscarried in Belarus.The NDI is one of several agencies, dating to the 1980s, that were set up to subvert communist regimes. With the end of the Cold War, however, these agencies were not decommissioned, but recommissioned to serve as something of an American Comintern.
Where the old Comintern of Lenin sought to instigate communist revolutions across the West and its empires, post-Cold War America decided to promote democratic revolutions to remake the world in the image of late 20th century America.In 2002, McFaul wrote a book: Russia’s Unfinished Revolution.Vladimir Putin‘s men are not unreasonably asking if he was sent to Moscow to finish that revolution. Putin has already accused Hillary Clinton of flashing the signal for street demonstrations to begin – to protest Russia’s December’s elections.

Daily Bell: Thanks for sitting down with us!
Larken Rose: Thanks for having me.
Daily Bell: Give us some background on yourself.
Larken Rose: Well, I was raised in a conservative, Republican, Christian setting, not just home but the whole town I grew up in. I grew up thinking the Constitution was great, America was great, and that we are free, and everyone else isn’t. Where I was raised, it was popular and easy to see the flawed thinking in what the leftist statists wanted, and to bash the silly, stupid, collectivist ideas that socialists were advocating. But it wasn’t until years later that I began to see that left-wing statism and right-wing statism are two slightly different flavors of the same gigantic lie.
Over the years, by way of reading things and having discussions and arguments about politics, I went from being Constitutionalist to libertarian, and finally to recognizing the belief in government as not just a bad idea but an insane, self-contradictory superstition, start to finish.
My wife and I sort of made the intellectual journey at the same time, talking about stuff, dragging each other further away from statism and toward freedom. Without giving my whole life story here, we got married in 1992, and had a daughter five years later. We took turns being political prisoners in 2006 and 2007 − me for a year, my wife Tessa for a month. Now we’re pretty much full-time enemies of the state, raising our daughter to hopefully be a sane, moral human being while we try to recover from what the parasite class did to us, and try to help other people escape the authoritarian cult indoctrination that almost everyone we know was put through.
During this primary season, many political pundits have assumed that Ron Paul is not actively trying to win the Presidency. To them, he is simply a message candidate who has some interesting ideas but no path to the nomination.Dr. Paul is seen as too much of a fringe candidate by the mainstream media and therefore considered unelectable.
The facts, however, say otherwise. This time around, the Ron Paul campaign is more organized, has better advisors, and is actually campaigning to win.Along with establishment candidate Mitt Romney, Ron Paul is the only candidate who was able to get on the ballot in all fifty states. Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum will not get enough delegates from the states they have qualified for to receive the Republican nomination.Rick Santorum still has very poor name recognition, and Newt Gingrich is one of the most polarizing political figures of our generation , and he could not even get on the ballot in his home state. In other words, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul are the only electable candidates to choose from.
One of the biggest reasons to believe that Congressman Paul intends to win is his age. Running a national campaign is the most stressful, physically draining, and emotionally taxing activity that a politician can undertake, and 76 year old Ron Paul would not be doing it unless he thought there were a chance he could win.

(“I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of paying for President Obama’s campaign speeches. Let him begin spending some of the billion dollars he’s got stashed away for campaign funds. I’m tired of paying for hugely expensive aircraft so Michelle can come and go as she pleases when they take vacations, too… why are taxpayers responsible for her travel? She’s not the President. Let her and her hand servants fly United on their own dime.”) ~ Marilyn M. Barnewall — Diversion, Duplicity, and Deception
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of paying for President Obama’s campaign speeches. Let him begin spending some of the billion dollars he’s got stashed away for campaign funds. I’m tired of paying for hugely expensive aircraft so Michelle can come and go as she pleases when they take vacations, too… why are taxpayers responsible for her travel? She’s not the President. Let her and her hand servants fly United on their own dime.
One thing became clear to me after the State of the Union speech – which, since I didn’t hear anything factual about the State of the Union (SOTU), turned out to be just another campaign speech paid for by the American taxpayer. The purpose of the SOTU is to inform the people about the state of our nation, not about the hopes, dreams and imaginative campaign promises of a presidential candidate.
What became clear to me is that it’s far less important who is elected President than it is for conservative Republicans to maintain control of the House of Representatives and gain control of the Senate. All of the hoop-la over the presidential race – all of the cannibalistic Republican debates – is being used to divert our attention. No matter which Party wins or loses, we need a Congress strong enough to keep a tight rein on the Executive Branch. Since the precedent of dictating by Executive Order has been established, it becomes imperative for us to be protected from a dictatorial president from any political party.
The Democrats – especially Obama — portray Republicans as uncooperative and as not doing anything to stimulate jobs or heal the economy. The mainstream media aids them in this false portrayal, not publishing facts regarding legislation that has been passed by the Republican-controlled House but ignored by Harry Reid’s Democrat-controlled Senate.

LARRY CRAIG: HOMOSEXUAL
by Alan Stang
August 30, 2007
Now that Minneapolis cops have finally nailed Idaho Senator Larry Craig, let it be said that his proclivity is stale news. Craig has routinely been accused of sodomy for at least twenty five years. In fact, Craig’s reputation as a predatory sodomite is so well-established and redundant that I did not bother mentioning him in my new book, Not Holier Than Thou, about the homosexual takeover of the Republicrud Party. Instead, I focused on Republicruds whose homosexual résumés were not so well known.
The new assault rifle, dubbed AK-12, is being designed as a basic platform for the development of nearly 20 different modifications of the weapon. It could be adapted for cartridges varying from 5.45×39 mm to 7.62×51 NATO.
The state tests of the rifle may begin at the end of 2012 despite the fact that the Russian Defense Ministry has not shown interest so far in the new weapon citing the financial difficulties of the Izhmash company and a huge surplus of AK-74 assault rifles (about 17 million) in the Armed Forces.
Izhmash said on Wednesday that the testing of the AK-12 will continue and the company will offer the rifle to foreign customers and Russian police.
Russia’s Interior Ministry has reportedly ordered about a hundred AK-12s for testing by its personnel.
According to Izhmash designers, they “adapted the weapon to modern combat requirements, having preserved Kalashnikov’s unique qualities – simplicity, reliability and relatively low production cost.”
Jesse Jackson Says Gov. Brewer ‘Gave President Obama the Finger’ By Mike Bates Created 01/28/2012 – 9:37pm
It was a routine Saturday morning at Rev. Jesse Jackson‘s Rainbow PUSH forum, broadcast nationally on the Word Network. He was all over the map. Jackson trashed Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater, Newt Gingrich, and Mitt Romney. He warned that enterprises such as black funeral homes and black insurance companies are “under attack.” He condemned a proposed change in Grammy Award classifications. Jackson also spoke out against Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who, he said, “did the ultimate insult. She put her finger in his (President Barack Obama) face.” Jackson wants people to call and complain (video here):
Also, while it’s on my mind, Gov. Janice K. Brewer, the finger person. Gov. Janice K. Brewer, who gave President Obama the finger, governor of Arizona, call 1 800 253 0883. Keep that line real busy. 1 800 253 0883. We’ll give you the number later a little later today and this week on the email number of her press secretary. We want to keep Arizona. . . until she can put her hands in her pocket and have some good. . . do you know how insulting it is to put your finger in somebody’s face? Try it with the cameras rolling, she knew the cameras.
She knew what she was doing. She was telling him off. She was cutting him down to his size. She must never get away with that. Even George Wallace did not put his finger in Dr. King’s face. Say, enough is enough.
Being the pious, innocent, saintly man he is, perhaps the Most Rev. Jackson deserves a pass. Maybe he doesn’t actually know the difference between giving someone the finger and waving one’s finger in another person’s face. But does he really consider the latter to be “the ultimate insult”? For a man who’s referred to Jews as “Hymies,” said in the last campaign that “Barack’s been talking down to black people” and that he would like to cut Obama’s testicles out, and admitted to, as a young waiter, having spit into the food of white customers he didn’t like, Jackson has a remarkable notion of what comprises the ultimate insult.
