TGIF Circus Life "Black Friday"

The photo above is Bombshell Mandy, (There's a gift that keeps on giving;) you can see more pinups VWvortex Forums: Pin Ups HERE or click on the graphic above.

Today is the day after Thanksgiving commonly referred to as "Black Friday" the reason it's called Black Friday is because retailers make up for all the red ink they have accrued through out the year. Our government hopes we will all be out shopping till we drop. The marketers have done their best to train us just like Pavlov's Dog.

Our economy is based on 2/3 consumerism. Am I the only one, that thinks basing a huge economy on people buying crap is a really bad idea "Chinese Crap At That"? Something has got to give, when do we get back to our core values and morals, the reason for the season?

The Obama Administration "Don't Know Much About History"

The Nanking Nightmare,
By Richard Schickel Friday, Jan.04,2008. Time Magazine.

In the early winter of 1937, Japanese troops, having conquered Shanghai, moved on to envelop Nanking, then the capital of China. After a furious aerial bombardment, they entered the city virtually without opposition. By this time most of its wealthier residents had fled, leaving the city to the poor and to the remnants of the Chinese army. There followed what is probably the most horrific single occurrence in the history of modern warfare, the "rape of Nanking," as it quickly came to be known. Over the course of the next few months the Japanese army essentially became an ungovernable mob, and before some semblance of order was restored, an estimated 200,000 Chinese were killed and 20,000 women were brutally raped.
My father fought in the Pacific during WWII, my husband is of Korean descent, his paternal grandparents, were both immigrants from Korea (I am very aware of the Japanese occupation of Korea.) I read this: President's response, to those who were outraged over his deep BOW to the emperor of Japan SEE Figure Head. #Hat Tip Allahpundit, HOT AIR, The President is "Speechless" over uproar about him bowing to elderly man. What this present U.S. administration, doesn't know about Geography, World & American History is Stunning. The idea that his posture toward the emperor of Japan, would be viewed as him showing respect to an elderly man, is showing stunning ignorance, on the world stage. Besides the countless veterans in America, and our WWII allies, who fought the Japanese during WWII, and their families and friends, who were insulted. Who did the current President of the U.S. think he was honoring with his posture? The Chinese? The Koreans? I'm not objective, given my father and my husband's military service. I am insulted by this posture of an American, holding the public office of President of the United States, exhibiting what appears to be a thoughtless act, that he didn't really give much thought to. Great, we have someone on the world stage representing us, that doesn't understand "International" relations and protocol.

Douglas Brinkley responds to James Bradley's assertion, that President Theodore Roosevelt, was responsible for encouraging Japanese expansionism.

Ft Hood Massacre, 13 Charges of Murder "What About Baby Velez"

The Military's Motto: No Man Left Behind - There is an unborn baby of a Slain American Army Iraq Veteran, Not Being Counted. 12 soldiers 1 civilian, and the unborn child of a Slain Army Veteran. I can do math that's 14 murdered. Is this how we honor American Military Veterans?

Pvt. Francheska Velez
Velez, 21, of Chicago, was pregnant and preparing to return home. A friend of Velez’s, Sasha Ramos, described her as a fun-loving person who wrote poetry and loved dancing.

“She was like my sister,” Ramos, 21, said. “She was the most fun and happy person you could know. She never did anything wrong to anybody.”

Family members said Velez had recently returned from deployment in Iraq and had sought a lifelong career in the Army.

“She was a very happy girl and sweet,” said her father, Juan Guillermo Velez, his eyes red from crying. “She had the spirit of a child.”

Ramos, who also served briefly in the military, couldn’t reconcile that her friend was killed in this country just after leaving a war zone.

“It makes it a lot harder,” she said. “This is not something a soldier expects — to have someone in our uniform go start shooting at us.” Kalamazoo Michigan News, Keep Reading HERE

Fort Hood jihadist charged with murder. One charge missing.
By Michelle Malkin • November 12, 2009 01:54 PM

I didn't want to blog about this incident but outside of Michelle Malkin, I haven't read where anyone is standing up or speaking up for Baby Velez. 14 not 13, I watched the news today, there was no mention when reporting on the 13 charges of murder of the unborn child of Iraq Army Veteran Francheska Velez's baby. Who will speak up for a life not counted?

The Federal Law:
The Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 (Public Law 108-212) is a United States law which recognizes a "child in utero" as a legal victim, if he or she is injured or killed during the commission of any of over 60 listed federal crimes of violence. The law defines "child in utero" as "a member of the species Homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb."[2]

The law is codified in two sections of the United States Code: Title 18, Chapter 1 (Crimes), §1841 (18 USC 1841) and Title 10, Chapter 22 (Uniform Code of Military Justice) §919a (Article 119a).

States government has jurisdiction, including certain crimes committed on Federal properties, against certain Federal officials and employees, and by members of the military. In addition, it covers certain crimes that are defined by statute as federal offenses wherever they occur, no matter who commits them, such as certain crimes of terrorism.

Veterans Day - The Pacific WWII Memorial

Daddy, severed in the Pacific during WWII. He would be hit with shrapnel, and suffer from malaria. He was on the beach when Douglas MacArthur was evacuating the Philippines. He had a lump on his forehead that turned out to be shrapnel it worked it's way out when he was in his 50s a doctor removed it.

My sister's recollection of our father's service.

The dimple in the middle of Daddy's chin is supposedly where he got hit by shrapnel--sometimes I thought he was joking with us, but I don't know. Uncle Mike would know this. Daddy was stationed in the Philippines, near Manila. I don't remember the plane at all. He did contract malaria and got sick every year for years after that at that same time, losing weight and looking generally under the weather big time. Malaria must recur yearly until it finally gets out of your system. I do recall that he hated MacArthur and remembers soldiers carrying MacArthur's house furniture onto the beach to be loaded for the ship--this was when they needed to evacuate and Daddy was outraged that furniture was even a consideration.
I do recall a story of using coconuts buried in the sand that the troops had somehow prepared and then the warm temperatures would cause the coconut milk to ferment and they had alcohol. Voila, instant party.
It is my memory that the picture of Dad with the Japanese prisoner is one he captured. It was not his job to guard troops, but he was in the infantry. Basically, Daddy was on a patrol which was spread out, maybe clearing an area, and this young Japanese soldier jumped up or he somehow came upon him and it was a big surprise for both and they were both scared shitless. Perhaps the young Japanese had no gun, but he raised his hands and Daddy took him back to base, where his buddies took the picture. We should check with Uncle Mike about this again.

All of my father's siblings but one, served during WWII, one of his elder sisters a Nurse an Army Lieutenant - she was married to an Army Officer Lt Col Charles Lawrence "Uncle Peanut" Uncle Charles was from Birmingham, Alabama, and he loved boiled peanuts. Uncle Charles was a chemist, and my Aunt his wife was the first company nurse for E.I. DuPont De NeMours company. My grandfather had been killed in an infamous explosion at DuPont. Most of our family worked for the company, later a street would be named in Dupont for our family for being one of the early DuPont families. I am the daughter, grand daughter, wife, aunt, niece, COUSIN, sister in law, daughter in law of American Military Service Veterans. God Bless them all, and ALL those who serve along side them.

Check Out Rob Bartlett's Blog, Rob list everyone's top 5 book choices.
Charles McCord's Picks. Oddly enough he doesn't list anything by Dr Jack Kevorkian GRIN.

  • The Bible - God (with Various Authors)
  • The Book of Virtues - William J. Bennett
  • Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln - Doris Kearns Goodwin
  • The Elements of Style - William Strunk and E.B. White
  • Mein Kampf - Adolph Hitler
Picking only 5 books, that is really a difficult choice for me. Off the top of my head, I would have to pick "Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas" by Hunter Thompson. A classic pick "Last Of The Mohicans" by James Fenimore Cooper.

James Fenimore Cooper, was taking artistic licenses with that title, the Mohican Indians didn't get wiped out. They are called the Stockbridge Winnebago Tribe.
