This is a photo collection where Barry and the First Wooki hosted a reception at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, during which they stood for 130 photographs with visiting foreign dignitaries, in town for the UN meeting. The President has exactly the same smile and look in every single shot. Yep the same smile 130 times. The same head tilt 130 times. The same arm placement. 130 times. The same Stalinest rant going through his brain 130 times. Hell I would be lucky to keep my eyes open! Did he stand in front of the mirror for hundreds of hous perfecting his look?
Pretty creepy when you think about it but I could not help to wonder if Barry could pull off an Old Navy add. Late addition Found on SondraK
I have read a bit, as in Times UK , and seen news reports calling the protesters at the G20 "Anti-capitalist protesters" Now just who are these people. Are they socialists? Anarchists? Jihads? Loony leftards? Or a mixed bag of all the above. To me they seem to deserve a good beating and delousing.
Saw this link on Drudge: Animal-cruelty charges dropped against cop... .It definatly falls into the WTF category and is not for the faint of heart. For example: "If the cow had the cognitive ability to form thought and speak, would it say, 'Where's the milk? I'm not getting any milk,' " Judge James J. Morley asked.
Aggghh! And I now feel completely different about veal!
This guy shoud be shot put away for a very long time for his other despicable behaviors.

I really found it fascinating that It is based on a true story. (And I really dig the 1981 clothing. Yep that is pretty much what high school looked like in the early 80's. ) Now what I find disturbing are the parallels to what is going on today.
I was thinking about this the other day after seeing one of the top 10 shows on the History/Military channel (Or as my domestic commander calls it "The damn black and white airplanes channel") Now as it turned out the winner was the AK-47, but I am in total disagreement. A modern army that wants an AK is one that cant afford good weapons and/or training. Sure its cheap and even a cave-man can use it but does it deserve number one billing? I don't think so. I have my opinion on what the all time best battle rifle is, and wonder what yours is.
Criteria: Fire power, Innovation, Design, Length of service, and Historical significance.
Limitations: Shoulder fired, and modern rifle cartridge,
Came across this awhile ago and thought I would share it again.
In December 1775, "An American Guesser" anonymously wrote to the Pennsylvania Journal:
"I observed on one of the drums belonging to the marines now raising, there was painted a Rattle-Snake, with this modest motto under it, 'Don't tread on me.' As I know it is the custom to have some device on the arms of every country, I supposed this may have been intended for the arms of America."
This anonymous writer, having "nothing to do with public affairs" and "in order to divert an idle hour," speculated on why a snake might be chosen as a symbol for America.
First, it occurred to him that "the Rattle-Snake is found in no other quarter of the world besides America."
The rattlesnake also has sharp eyes, and "may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance." Furthermore,
"She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage. ... she never wounds 'till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her."
"I confess I was wholly at a loss what to make of the rattles, 'till I went back and counted them and found them just thirteen, exactly the number of the Colonies united in America; and I recollected too that this was the only part of the Snake which increased in numbers. ...
"'Tis curious and amazing to observe how distinct and independent of each other the rattles of this animal are, and yet how firmly they are united together, so as never to be separated but by breaking them to pieces. One of those rattles singly, is incapable of producing sound, but the ringing of thirteen together, is sufficient to alarm the boldest man living."
Many scholars now agree that this "American Guesser" was Benjamin Franklin.
Franklin, of course, is also known for opposing the use of an eagle -- "a bird of bad moral character" -- as a national symbol.
