RED vs BLUE - An Observation

If politics is the life blood of this country (okay, so it really isn’t) then consider this:

We have Red States and Blue States. The Red States are the ones that tend to vote mostly for the Republican and the Blue States tend to vote mostly for the Democrat.

Now, in our bodies we have our life blood – our blood. If you remember from your biology class you will remember that when blood receives oxygen (becomes oxygenated) it turns Red.

Also remember that when blood has no oxygen it is Blue.

What this means is that we need to get some oxygen to the Blue Statesfast!

How Do You Boil A Frog

Great Britain has caved in. UK Is Now UIK (United Islamic Kingdom).

Islamic law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases. Thus, the government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.

This is not stepping on a slippery slope, this is getting on it and purposely sliding down.

And, if Britain does this, I am convinced other spineless EU countries will follow. I would not have thought that Britain would do this. At least, not be the first to do so.

Imagine if the Catholic Church, or any other religion, tried to be able to make binding legal judgments against people and usurp our justice system. We would be outraged!

This ruling in Britain is the epitome of liberalism running amok. They are afraid of offending the Muslims so now they will have a parallel legal system within their country. And, where will the checks and balances be? I think you know the answer to that question!

A country of laws must maintain those laws as absolute and must not bow to pressure from any group to allow a legal system to operate within a legal system.

How long will it be before a Muslim wants to bring a non-Muslim into a sharia court for some offense (perceived or real) against Islam?

I feel like a frog and the water temperature is slowly being turned up.

The World Wants Obama - Do We Really Care Who The Rest Of The World Wants As President?

A BBC poll states that the world wants Obama. My guess is that this really means that the other socialist countries want another socialist and the trouble makers want a weakling in office.

What are your thoughts?


Metropolitan Martini

1.5 parts brandy
1 part sweet vermouth
1/2 tsp sugar syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters

Mix ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake until COLD. Strain into a coctail glass and be metropolitan.

Madonna "Got Stupid"

In past posts I have talked about many of the entertainment stars that show their buffoonery when they think that they have the answers to our problems just because they are “stars”. Don’t get me wrong, they have the right to voice their opinions. But for some reason they think that their opinions are more valid then anyone else’s because of their stardom.

Madonna is the latest loser to join the ranks of those that should just “shut up and sing”. (obtw, I don’t want to hear the conservatives come out either. I want entertainers to entertain).

In her latest world tour that just kicked off, “Sticky and Sweet”, she sings her song “Get Stupid” and flashes images of McCain with destruction, global warming, Adolph Hitler and Robert Mugabe.

This is insulting and offensive! To include any U.S. politician in that same group of people is outrageous and utterly reprehensible.

I hope Americans will see this and respond by not buying her tickets. But, I fear that there are many other of her ilk that loathe the very country that gives them the freedoms and opportunities that they enjoy.

Then, at the end of the song she includes Obama, John Lennon, Ghandi and Al Gore in the same grouping. YGBSM!!

Ghandi is the only one of that four that has really done anything for the world! Lennon was a great entertainer and Gore was VP. Obama has done nothing! Give me a break!

Madonna has always been known for trying to go for the “shock and awe” approach in her career but now she has lost it. First of all, A 50 year old woman using the tour title of “Sticky and Sweet” is ludicrous.

Madonna, I hope you stay in England for the rest of your life. The last thing we need in this country is another “America-hating” has-been that thinks she represents what America thinks.


And Madonna deserves no martini.

The 5th Beatle

He’s a rock star!

No, Barak Hussein Obama is a “Barock” star. I don’t know if he can play any musical instrument but the mainstream media (MSM) treats him like a rock star.

His ‘World Tour 2008’ is being covered in depth by the MSM sycophants. When the three major network news anchors fly out with him on this tour it says a lot about them. This man is not anything more than a first-term senator who happens to be the presumptive nominee of the Democrat party.

The way the MSM is fawning all over him you’d think this was a reunion tour of the Beatles. Or, perhaps Barak is the 5th Beatle! John, Paul, George, Ringo and Barak!

Give me a break! This guy is not the President of the United States yet the MSM is covering every stop as if it were a state visit.

So on his ‘World Tour’ it is reported that he has an approval rating is 80% over there. Why isn’t it that over here?

The Europeans probably do like Obama. In reality he is a socialist. Any objective look at his policies and proposals will lead any honest person to say that the only difference between Barak and a socialist is that he doesn’t call himself one. And, socialism is predominant in Europe.

And, thus, the Europeans hang on his every word. He, alone, will save our reputation in the world. You know, the reputation that Bush has supposedly ruined with his cowboy diplomacy.

As much as he is treated like the 5th Beatle, how is he going to repair a reputation that has not really been tarnished? And here is why I say this:

He was over there in Germany yesterday bashing America in his Berlin speech, and apologizing for the actions of the U.S. This is disgusting and real Americans should make this known to him.

And, who said that he could apologize for what America has done? Especially in a country that has committed the atrocities it has.

If our reputation is so tarnished why is it that more people want to immigrate to America than all other countries combined? Why is it that when aid is needed in the world the first people that are called are Americans? Not Europeans…Americans! Why is it that in less than 300 years we have become the greatest country God ever let exist? We have done more good in the world than any other country in history and we haven’t been around for thousands of years…like some of them.

We do more for the world than probably all other countries combined. So if the world hates us as much as the MSM and the liberals say, why does the world turn to America first?

Because they want to be US!

But, I’m sure they do like Barack. He supports the policies they embrace in their world. And look what it has gotten them: high inflation, double digit unemployment, more restrictions of individual freedoms and an economy that is no where near as robust as ours.

I really don’t care if any other country likes us or not. America is the biggest beacon of freedom the world has ever seen, and perhaps ever will. No American should care about what other countries think of us either.

But if the 5th Beatle is elected president this fall I wonder about a couple of things:

Will they still like him when he has to make and enforce the policies of the U.S.?

Or, will he?

This explains it all.

As an aviator, I come from a long lineage rooted in a secret society, formed around one thousand years ago. I now know that I am a warrior and here is the proof!

A little known fact is the origin of the word, "Aviator." In the immortal words of Johnny Carson: "I didn't know that."

Phu Khen (pronounced Foo Ken, 1169-?) is considered by some tobe the most under-recognized military officer in history. Many have never heard of his contributions to modern military warfare. The mission of this secret society is to bring honor to the name of Phu Khen.

A 'Khen' was a subordinate to a 'Khan' (pronounced 'konn') in the military structure of the Mongol hordes. Khan is Turkish for leader. Most know of the great Genghis Khan, but little has been written of his chain of command.

Khen is also of Turkish origin. There is not a word in English that adequately conveys the meaning. Roughly translated, it means, "One who will do the impossible, while appearing unprepared and complaining constantly."

Phu Khen was one of ten Khens that headed the divisions, or groups of hordes, as they were known, of the Mongol Army serving under Genghis Khan. His abilities came to light during the Mongols' raids on the Turkistan city of Bohicaroo. Bohicans were fierce warriors and the city was well fortified. The entire city was protected by hugewalls, and the hordes were at a standoff with the Bohicans. Bohicaroo was well stocked and it would be difficult to wait them out.

Genghis Khan assembled his Khens and ordered each of them to develop a plan for penetrating the defenses of Bohicaroo. Operation Achieve Victory (AV) was born. All 10 divisions of Khens submitted their plan. After reviewing AV plans 1 thru 7and finding them all unworkable or ridiculous, Genghis Khan was understandably upset.

It was with much perspiration that Phu Khen submitted his idea,which came to be known as AV 8. Upon seeing AV 8, Genghis Khan was convinced this was the perfect plan and gave his immediate approval.

The plan was beautifully simple. Phu Khen would arm his hordes to the teeth, load them into catapults, and hurl them over the wall. The losses were expected to be high, but hey, hordes were cheap! Those that survived the flight would engage the enemy in combat. And, those that did not? Well, surely their flailing bodies would cause some damage.

The plan worked and the Bohicans were defeated. From that day on, whenever the Mongol Army encountered an insurmountable enemy, Genghis Khan would give the order, "Send some of Phu Khen's AV 8-ers."

This is believed, though not by anyone outside our secret society, to be the true origin of the word Aviator (AV 8-er). Phu Khen's AV 8-ers were understandably an unruly mob, not likely to be socially acceptable. Many were heavy drinkers and insomniacs. But when nothing else would do, you could always count on an AV 8-er. A Phu Khen Aviator.

Denied, perhaps rightfully so, his place in history, Phu Khen has been, nonetheless, immortalized in prose. As the great poet Norman Lear never once said:

"There once was a man named Phu Khen,

Whose breakfast was whiskey and gin.

When e'er he'd fly,

He'd give a mighty war cry:

"Bend over, here it comes again."

It is an honor to be a Phu Khen Aviator. I wear the mantle proudly, but speak of it cautiously. It is not always popular to be one of us. You hear mystical references, often-hushed whispers, to "those Phu Khen Aviators."

I do not let these things bother me. As with any secret society, we go largely misunderstood, prohibited by our apathy from explaining ourselves. We are expected to always live down to the reputation of the Phu Khen Aviator...a reputation cultivated for centuries, undaunted by scorn or ridicule, unhindered by progress.

We drink, we're crude, we sleep late, urinate in public, and we get the job done.

And, when others are offended, I can revel in the knowledge that...
