  1. A frigate in 1973. But we have an unconventional President. That being said, I'm partial about cooks of all varieties. My first thought when reading the story was, "what a wonderful way of celebrating a new class of warship that might turn out to be one of the most environmentally-friendly out there under the Green New Deal". (insert sarcasm emoji here) I'm all for it. And very happy to have known about Mr. Miller.
  2. https://www.dailywire.com/news/trump-administration-honors-black-world-war-ii-hero-in-a-big-way "The Trump administration is set to honor World War II hero Ship’s Cook Third Class Doris Miller during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day ceremony at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, by naming a future Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier after Miller. The decision was made by Thomas B. Modly, who was appointed by President Donald Trump to Undersecretary of the Navy in 2017 and took over as Acting Secretary of the Navy last year after Trump fired Richard Spencer from the role in November... Miller, who died in 1943, described firing the weapon, which he had not been trained to do, by saying, “It wasn’t hard. I just pulled the trigger and she worked fine. I had watched the others with these guns. I guess I fired her for about fifteen minutes. I think I got one of those Jap planes. They were diving pretty close to us.”
  3. The worldwide view that some actions don't have consequences has reached epidemic proportions. It's been a guessing game for a while.
  4. BREAKING NEWS! The Speaker for most of the House, Ms. Nancy "I only have love in my heart" Pelosi announced today that she wants to serve God. But only as an advisor...
  5. The Speaker for most of the House, Ms. Nancy "I only have love in my heart" Pelosi gloats that President Trump has been "impeached forever". Please keep reminding the American public that it was done purely as an exercise in the worst kind of partisan politics. We are so dumb and stupid that we need to be reminded ever so often. In addition, Mr. Jerry "Did I just say that" Nadler said today that there was overwhelming evidence against the President. If so, why the need for witnesses in the Senate? Sorry, but I'm so dumb and stupid that I don't get it. Please repeat it slowly so I can digest it.
  6. Nothing less to be expected from all Democrats whose models of success are the paradises of California, New York, Chicago, Baltimore and other assorted shining examples of utopias. From those who don't believe that those localities are not normal but disfunctional, it is apparent that they wouldn't recognize success even if it hit them squarely in the face and a$$ both at the same time. So it boils down to stupidity, ignorance and/or mental illness.
  7. The tip serves assorted purposes. For instance, my family knows that if I take out my gun at a restaurant that they need to head straight towards the kitchen. It's not a failproof bet, it's the best bet.
  8. Most people probably don't recognize the following. If you are at a restaurant and the possibility of an earthquake exists, or some other kind of bedlam, the best table for you is the one closest to the kitchen. In the western world, the vast majority of restaurant kitchens have a door that leads to the outside. That's where the provisions go in and the cooks out to smoke a cigarette. If s*it hits the fan, where do you think the majority of patrons will be headed to? Hard to fit 50 folks all trying to exit through a 4-foot wide door at the same time. I had to tell a friend this week about it. He understood it instantly, he just hadn't recognized it before. FWIW...
  9. It is very easily forgotten that the conditions that lead to regime change are pre-existent. Those who seek power/authority need only exploit the circumstances that those conditions offer. Or, "if it ain't there before, you can't make it after".
  10. Definitely. Then people come with phrases like "from the pan to the fire", "how the heck did we get here", and my personal favorite..."you asked for it".
  11. I've being racking my head trying to come up with a country that is free of corruption. As far as degrees go--- heck, even one with a snippet! San Marino? Andorra? Anybody been to Vaduz, Liechtenstein lately? Perhaps in an island in the South Pacific with about 100 inhabitants. Maybe that's pushing it. How 'bout 50?
