The Bear that Wasn’t so Big

Well, actually Big Bear was really nice. The weather kicked ass! It was warm, but not overly so. I hear L.A. suffered with 113′ heat. Sucks to be you L.A.

I think that’s funny as hell to be honest with you.

At any rate, Big Bear was pretty cool. This was a set-up where a few folks from work get together and take a camping trip. I won’t mention any names, for privacy sake, but will use fake names, a.k.a. pseudonyms.

We drove to our campsite which was located at Sorano Campground. We arrived on Friday afternoon right at 1400 hours.

I had only met one person, Sam, I work with him, or so I thought whom I had worked with.  It turns out that actually have met two more people from work. I was on an audit of Fred’s area and I knew John from seeing him a few times in my office. I actually met John early on in my start here at work.

We met their wives for the first time, and two other couples that also either work at the same place, or are neighbors.

All were very nice people.

We had dinner the first night as a group. We had hamburgers for dinner. Everyone brought their own meat, and the sides were divvied up amongst each family. This was kind of cool. We did something similar to this for breakfast Saturday, and again on Sunday night.

Dinner on Saturday was at Maggio’s pizza joint. Very good food. The place was absolutely packed! Most of the tables were taken and the take-out orders were numerous. Price wasn’t bad either.

On Saturday the family and I went fishing at a couple spots on the lake. We didn’t even get a bite, and it was rather warm in the sun. On Sunday, I again went fishing on my own in the morning.  Sam and his son Jeff were also fishing with me. They saw my truck and decided to stop and fish too.  We were all skunked this day as well.

Bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

This morning I got up at the crack of 0630, walked the dogs, and went fishing.

I went to the same place I was on Sunday with Sam and Jeff. I caught two small trout and a pan size small mouth bass. I tossed back the trout, kept the bass and went an filled my truck up with gas before I hitched up the trailer.

Walked in this morning with “Hi babe, I caught a bass!” and handed it to her. She’s never eaten a bass before. I guess she gets her chance now. Didn’t skunk me today! The bass hit on a purple trout pattern spoon. It was fun to catch.

There were a lot of interesting times at the fire each night with everyone.

We really enjoyed this one.

There’s a lot more I could say, but I am tired after unpacking the trailer this afternoon.

Yep, you read that right. The aliens have landed. Apparently seven years ago to be frank with you. Yeah, the young (former) Captain in the Air Force states that he saw aliens hovering over a nuclear weapons facility and the aliens stole, the technology for the nuclear missiles stored at the base.

Aliens have deactivated British and US nuclear missiles, say US military pilots

Aliens have landed, infiltrated British nuclear missile sites and deactivated the weapons, according to US military pilots.

The beings have repeated their efforts in the US and have been active since 1948, the men said, and accused the respective governments of trying to keep the information secret.

The unlikely claims were compiled by six former US airmen and another member of the military who interviewed or researched the evidence of 120 ex-military personnel.

The information they have collected suggests that aliens could have landed on Earth as recently as seven years ago.

The men’s aim is to press the two governments to recognise the long-standing extra-terrestrial visits as fact.

They are to be presented on Monday 27 September at a meeting in Washington.

One of the men, Capt Robert Salas, said: “The US Air Force is lying about the national security implications of unidentified aerial objects at nuclear bases and we can prove it.”

He said said he witnessed such an event first-hand on March 16, 1967, at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana which housed Minuteman nuclear missiles.

Capt Salas continued: “I was on duty when an object came over and hovered directly over the site.

UN ‘to appoint space ambassador to greet alien visitors’

A space ambassador could be appointed by the United Nations to act as the first point of contact for aliens trying to communicate with Earth.

Mazlan Othman, a Malaysian astrophysicist, is set to be tasked with co-ordinating humanity’s response if and when extraterrestrials make contact.

Professor Richard Crowther, an expert in space law at the UK space agency who leads delegations to the UN, said: “Othman is absolutely the nearest thing we have to a ‘take me to your leader’ person”.

Aliens who landed on earth and asked: “Take me to your leader” would be directed to Mrs Othman.

She will set out the details of her proposed new role at a Royal Society conference in Buckinghamshire next week.

The 58-year-old is expected to tell delegates that the proposal has been prompted by the recent discovery of hundreds of planets orbiting other starts, which is thought to make the discovery of extraterrestrial life more probable than ever before.

Mrs Othman is currently head of the UN’s little known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa).

In a recent talk to fellow scientists, she said: “The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that some day human kind will received signals from extraterrestrials.

“When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination.”

Maybe we shouldn’t cancel the Shuttle Program is what I’m thinking!

This makes me sick!

I cannot believe that my beloved Army could allow this to happen. My heart is broken over this.

Those responsible for allowing this to happen need to be dealt with swiftly.

Those FORMER Soldiers need to hang for this.

Dressed in a t-shirt and Army shorts, a 22-year-old corporal from Wasilla, Alaska casually describes on a video tape made by military investigators how his unit’s “crazy” sergeant randomly chose three unarmed, innocent victims to be murdered in Afghanistan.

Corporal Jeremy N. Morlock is one of five GI’s charged with pre-meditated murder in a case that includes allegations of widespread drug use, the collection of body parts and photos of the U.S. soldiers holding the Afghan bodies like hunter’s trophies.

O’Carter Slammed by Dems…

Posted: 22 Sep 2010 in Politics

Has the disgruntled masses on the left finally seen the light?
No. He’s just as lame if not more so than Carter, but the left thinks he hasn’t done enough to screw up America.

This guy is quite the douche-bag.

The Carter-Obama Comparisons Grow
Walter Mondale himself sees a parallel.

By JOHN FUND

Comparisons between the Obama White House and the failed presidency of Jimmy Carter are increasingly being made—and by Democrats.

Walter Mondale, Mr. Carter’s vice president, told The New Yorker this week that anxious and angry voters in the late 1970s “just turned against us—same as with Obama.” As the polls turned against his administration, Mr. Mondale recalled that Mr. Carter “began to lose confidence in his ability to move the public.” Democrats on Capitol Hill are now saying this is happening to Mr. Obama.

Mr. Mondale says it’s time for the president “to get rid of those teleprompters and connect” with voters. Another of Mr. Obama’s clear errors has been to turn over the drafting of key legislation to the Democratic Congress: “That doesn’t work even when you own Congress,” he said. “You have to ride ‘em.”

I don’t know who to attribute this to, but it’s pretty good and it’s true.

If George W. Bush had doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head?

If George W. Bush joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who’s side he was on?

If George W. Bush had put 87000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium onoffshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one company had an accident would you have agreed?

If George W. Bush had used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87000 American workers unemployed would you support him?

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a TelePrompTer installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan’s holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia , would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent “Austrian language,” would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had stated that there were 57 states in theUnited States , would you have said that he is clueless.

If George W. Bush would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in Texas , would you havethought he was a self important, conceited, egotistical jerk.

If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to “Cinco de Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

If George W. Bush had misspelled the word “advice” would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoes as proof of what a dunce he is?

If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he’s a hypocrite?

If George W. Bush’s administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America , would you have approved.

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can’t think of anything? Don’t worry. He’s done all this in 15 months — so you’ll have two years and nine months to come up with an answer.

Every statement is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.

Meltdown of the climate ‘consensus’

If this keeps up, no one’s going to trust any scientists.

The global-warming establishment took a body blow this week, as the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change received a stunning rebuke from a top-notch independent investigation.

For two decades, the IPCC has spearheaded efforts to convince the world’s governments that man-made carbon emissions pose a threat to the global temperature equilibrium — and to civilization itself. IPCC reports, collated from the work of hundreds of climate scientists and bureaucrats, are widely cited as evidence for the urgent need for drastic action to “save the planet.”

But the prestigious InterAcademy Council, an independent association of “the best scientists and engineers worldwide” (as the group’s own Web site puts it) formed in 2000 to give “high-quality advice to international bodies,” has finished a thorough review of IPCC practices — and found them badly wanting.

For example, the IPCC’s much-vaunted Fourth Assessment Report claimed in 2007 that Himalayan glaciers were rapidly melting, and would possibly be gone by the year 2035. The claim was actually false — yet the IPCC cited it as proof of man-made global warming.

Julian Assange: Collateral Rapist (Update)

Posted By Uber Pig • [September 01, 2010]

If you have a blog or a facebook page, please consider publishing a link to this post, or to the original article:

Director of Public Prosecutions Marianne Ny said she decided to reopen the investigation after further review of the case.

“There is reason to believe that a crime has been committed. Considering information available at present, my judgment is that the classification of the crime is rape,” Ny said in a statement on the Prosecution Authority’s website.

“More investigations are necessary before a final decision can be made,” she added. She also said a preliminary investigation into charges of molestation would be expanded to sexual coercion and sexual molestation.

“The case has a high priority,” she told Reuters. She declined to say whether Assange had already been questioned or give further information.

My heart goes out to these poor women — apparently at least one of which was a young girl at the time she was raped — just as it goes out to the Apache helicopter crew he so unfairly maligned, and to the families of the Afghanistan informants he exposed, and who now are in fear for their lives.  More here.
