Ha! I didn’t see the irony there – “Freedom not survivable”. Certainly not in the Obama Era.
“Problem is, according to the Pentagon’s chief weapons tester, the Navy will be deploying the USS Freedom before knowing if the so-called Littoral Combat Ship can survive, um, combat. And what the Navy does know about the ship isn’t encouraging: Among other problems, its guns don’t work right.”
Maybe it should be reclassified as a ‘Figurative’ Combat Ship.
They’re not sure the the guns can keep up with the speed of the “boat.”
“You’re going to need a bigger gun.”
Pleasant? I’ll take righteous indignation for now. Maybe pleasant in 2014, 2016. I’m waiting for a big white elephant myself. Don’t distract me. Where’s the rabbit?? “It’s better than the play.”
I found Harvey!! Does anyone recognize the feller sitting on the lawn in front?
Disregard Harvey! He’s only a pooka! Put down the cookpot and back away very slowly!
The pic is a bit small, but looks like Gov. Rick!
You are a winner!!
Question…which animal appears most often on the 50 US state flags?
Eagle! Ca ching!
Interesting, since several states have some type of cardinal as their state bird.
What is the only state that has a Spanish motto?
“Oro y plata” – Gold and Silver MONTANA!! Too easy.
You would think,Eric,but it’s Minnesota…”L’Etoile du Nord”
I love most of their exports save Neil Young, but damn proximity to the Canucks.
He’s from Ontario,eh.
Not sure. They’ve been gone-gone-gone, been gone so long.
You are a genius.
The Star of the North. I looked it up. Up north.
As the state seal, which is on the flag, shows a farmer pushing a plow, I always assumed as a kid that “L’etoile du Nord” meant “the hard-working Norwegian.”
Ha! And speaking of hard working Norwegians, how’s the translation going?
I’m in the Bibliography. Which amazingly, although it’s mostly just transcription, is way, way harder than translating text. Also more boring, but I expected that going in. I’m proceeding through this section at about half the pace I had in the text.
I feel ya. Ibid.
OK, Scott…’splain to me why my state, Nevada, has the motto, “Battle Born!”
Ummm. Totally different bag 0′ worms there.
Senator Pat McCarron battled Communists…Harry Reid battles our Republic.
Are you ever. Sushi is soochie-icky. Bleh. The Suns, the body builders, love it. It’s so bad, I might start rootin’ for the birds, any birds.
Glad the suns are body builders.I have six pack abs…drink a couple of six packs every day.
“A few lines in President Obama’s sprawling gun control plan are stirring accusations from conservatives that the administration is trying to enlist doctors in a national campaign against owning firearms.
“The easy-to-miss language was part of Obama’s package of executive actions and legislative proposals that includes a new assault-weapons ban and universal background checks. The provision on doctors, though, has begun to generate just as much controversy.”
Would this probing into my private affairs take place before, during, or after my prostrate exam?
Gotta love Harvey. “Well, I’ve wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I’m happy to state I finally won out over it.”
So, I’ve mentioned before my ultra-lefty friend who’s a mayor over in Wisconsin. Among his recent Facebook posts, he said that he’s ashamed that Paul Ryan is from his home state. Anyway, now he’s complaining about how much the new taxes are hurting him and his wife’s income this year. I guess he bought into the Democrats’ BS about how the tax hikes were only going to hurt “the rich.” Oops.
