Sniper sets world record for killing enemy

A Scottish sniper now claims to hold the Afghanistan record for killing the enemy, an amazing shot of 5,000 feet, nearly a mile!

Chris Reynolds – He can kill you a mile away!

However, some claim that a Canadian sniper Rob Furlong made a far more impressive kill (1.5 miles) in 2007.

One of my neighbors (Carl) is a retired Secret Service sniper and world record holder who can shoot a six inch pattern at a mile away! This skill is beyong amazing, I have trouble even seeing somebody a mile away, much less blowing their head off . . . .

He tells me that the gravitational drop of a bullet at this distance is over 12 feet! Sniping at these distances is like hurling a cannonball and requires considerable skill.

You really need to know your Kentucky windage to kill someone at this distance.

The loud sound of a rifle crack is the noise of the bullet breaking the sound barrier, and at these great distances the enemy was lying dead on the ground before the rifle shot was heard!

This video shows actual sniper footage, and you can see how snipers kill enemy combatants with precision and skill.

Ten Army heros receive The Silver Star in North Carolina!

In an unprecedented event, the pentagon has awarded ten hero’s to win the silver star, America’s second highest award for valor at Fort Bragg, N.C.

Ten hero’s get the Silver Star in North Carolina!

One of them, John Wayne Walding is a real hero in my book!

He got his leg shot half off, so he amputated it with a knife, then strapped the disconnected appendage to his thigh with his bootlaces, then kept fighting!

John Wayne Walding – This is what a real American hero looks like

I know several Silver Star winners are all of them share a dry wit about their combat actions.

Walding, for example, tried to give himself morphine, but stick himself in the thumb. He noted “my thumb felt great”.

Read this, this is what real American’s are made of . . .

“By the time the battle ended, the Green Berets and the commandos had suffered 15 wounded and two killed, both Afghans, while an estimated 150 to 200 insurgents were dead, according to an official Army account of the battle.

The Special Forces soldiers had nearly run out of ammunition, with each having one to two magazines left, Ford said.”

MIT researches Aluminum Foil Deflectors

There are websites which cater to the needs of paranoid schizophrenics, and there is important new research into the effectiveness of the Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie (AFDB), a hat that is designed to protect the psychotic person from mind-reading aliens and the CIA.

An Aluminum Foil Deflector Hat (AFDH) is a type of headwear that can shield the brain from most electromagnetic psychotronic mind control carriers. The kids at MIT are now applying their skills in scientific research to the real world, and researching the different styles of foil hats for nuts:

The “centurion” style of mind control deflector hat, is tested at MIT

Check out this important MIT study.

According to this site, dedicate to the aluminum foil deflector beanie, the beanie style is still the most popular, but there remains concerns that “beanie” style may not offer enough coverage to block mind controlThe foil “beanie” may not offer enough coverage to block mind control

The beanie style – The traditional favorite of the insane

“AFDBs are inexpensive (even free if you don’t mind scrounging for thrown-out aluminum foil) and can be constructed by anyone with at least the dexterity of a chimp. This cheap and unobtrusive form of mind control protection offers real security to the masses.”

A girl named Urine

North Carolina is noted for unusual names, especially among the illiterate folks. The illiteracy rate here in rural NC is amazing, and this inability to read contributes to the funny name phenomenon.

In the 19th century country folks chose obscure Roman of Biblical names (my Grandparents were named Vespasian and Corinna), but today they make-up names and anything goes . . .

We know a waitress named Jerkala, and a nice lady named Shetaqua, (whose name is pronounced shit-ta-qua, I kid you not).

Oh, did I mention the young lady named Lattrine?

Now I ask you, who chooses a child name with sounds like sh*t and jerk in them?

North Carolina country folk do . . .

Illiterate names

We all know about the stupid country song “a boy named Sue”, but how many people know the story of the girl named “Urine”? By the way, the name Urine (or Urene), is not pronounced like pee (“Your in”), but instead, it’s pronounced with a hard U, and sounds like “You-Reene”.

Urine explained that she asked her Mommy how she got such an unusual name, and her Momma explained that she was born a preemie and spent two weeks in the intensive care unit.

On the ICU crib, a large sign was posted that read:

“Please save Urine”. . . .

Only semi-literate, her Mom assumed that was her name on the sign:

“That’s when I knew that the folks in the ICU had done named you already”. . .

Snakes in the swimming pool!

One down side to having a swimming pool in North Carolina is all of the critters who like to go swimming. We have literally fished out thousands of toads. The stupid toads appear to like the swimming, but the water kills them, and they swim-away from the net!

Every day we net out some woodland critter having his morning constitutional in our pool.

But this summer was different; we started getting snakes, big swimming snakes!
So far this year, we have found a live copperhead bathing in our pool (a deadly snake which I dispatched immediately), and today we had this uninvited guest.

I was in the deep-end and got to see this at eye-level, coming right for me.

It’s a good thing I was in the pool, as I think I wet myself . . .

Friend or foe?

While most people kill all snakes, we need “good” snakes to keep down the rodent population that plague farms like ours.

I was taught this timeless poem of snake-killing rules, a timeless mnemonic that can save the life of an innocent snake:

“Red to yellow, kill a fellow. . . . Red to black, venom lack.”

But this snake did not have the distinctive poisonous colorations. It’s marked like a diamondback rattlesnake, but no rattles.

The best time to find a snake in the pool is before you get into the pool

A quick Google image search revealed that she is an eastern milk snake, a nice snake:

The interweb says that the milk snake name resulted from a myth that these snakes drink the milk of cows because they like to hang out in the barn eating mice.

Anyway, Janet fished him out of the pool, and he slithered along his merry way . . .

A History of Stewardesses

I remember that flying was a special treat back in the 1960’s. Airline tickets were expensive, and people dressed-up in their Sunday best when flying.

Flying commercial was a swanky affair, something reserved for successful, important men.

In the golden age of air travel, stewardesses were hot models, all thin and voluptuous, and the pilots were all macho ex-military fighter jocks:

Coffee, tea, or me?

Even the movies of the 1960’s glamorized sexy stewardesses:

Stewardesses in film

Back then, predictions of the future of aviation foresaw no changes, and all stewardesses were super-model quality:

A 1970’s prediction of the 21st Century stewardess

How wrong they were!

As I recall, all of this changed with Women’s lib, and in the mid 80’s it became popular for effeminate men to become stewardesses.

They even got the official name changed from stewardess to the gender neutral “flight attendant”.

The real 21st century flight attendants

In an ironic twist, it’s alleged that a flight attendant started the worldwide spread of AIDS when he refused to leave his friends behind:

“As a flight attendant Dugas was able to travel the globe, at little cost, to such early HIV epicenters as Los Angeles, New York, Paris, London, and San Francisco.

He claimed to have had over 2,500 sexual partners across North America since becoming sexually active in 1972.”

Personally, I have no problem with homo flight attendants, but I must believe that many business travelers might appreciate a return of the glorious past.

For a fresh idea in air travel, let’s bring back the sexy stewardesses, something like Hooters in the sky!

Ah, it could herald the 2nd golden age of air travel . . .

Reverse Darwinism in America

America is the best country in human history, a beacon of freedom and prosperity that attracts the very finest people from all over the world.

Because most foreigners wish to become Americans someday, we can choose new citizens from among the best and the brightest. Yet sadly, we choose the worst and the stupidest; criminals with no respect for the law.

It’s reverse Darwinism, and it’s all because the USA does not have the nads to enforce our existing immigration laws.

America is noted for our bravery, yet we don’t have the Moxie to drop-kick the CRIMINAL aliens who come to our shores.

Even worse, we reward bad behavior from criminal aliens who come to America illegally and have their foreign babies, who are granted US citizenship. This is offensive at so many levels . . .

America is a nation of LEGAL immigrants

Wake up America! There is a principle in the law that nobody should enjoy the “Fruit of the poisonous tree”, and that needs to be extended to apply to those who benefit from illegal US immigration.

Every year, the least desirable immigrants (those with no respect for our laws), wade across the Rio Grande and give birth to US citizens, all at taxpayer expense.

History has taught us what happens when a nation is founded by criminal exiles, and it’s time for America to grow a set and start enforcing our laws.

Get out your Spanish/English dictionaries, our uninvited criminal neighbors are coming in droves. . .

WARNING: This page may make you sick, but read the comments:

“You are either legal or illegal. There is no grey area. Coming here in the dark of the night should put you at the end of the line when you are caught.”

Help stop illegal aliens – pefform I-9 certification

But allowing criminals to gain US citizenship is not limited to blue collar workers. There is extensive H1-B Visa fraud, and this Businessweek article only denotes that the detected fraud is only the tip of the iceberg.

“We are only at the tip of iceberg as to where this [investigation] leads,” said Matthew G. Whitaker, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa. “We have a ways to go and more [fraud] to uncover.”

Posers from India pretend to be qualified software engineers with wild abandon, fake engineers gaining USA citizenship fraudulently.

Some dirtbags have no problem posing as professionals

There is also a huge black market for fake ID, which is ridiculous in this day and age of biometrics (Oracle’s CIO genius Larry Ellison offered to give America a “card-less” national ID database, but Bush would not take it).

To ensure against I-9 posers, we hire attorneys to independently verify everyone’s right to work in America.

Our company performs I-9 certification on all of our experts, and if more companies made this investment, illegal alien fraud would be greatly reduced.

Ex-smokers are the worst: Becoming an indignant ex-smoker

When it comes to being intolerant of smokers, they say that ex-smokers are the worst, and I believe it.

During my 38 years of smoking, I puffed over a quarter million cigarettes, and even though I’ve not smoked in over a year now, I’d be a liar if I said that I still don’t crave a cigarette every waking hour. Smoking is one powerful addiciton . . .

It’s still amazes me that 60 million Americans still smoke in 2009, over 20% of the population!

There is a huge demographic shew, with the uneducated and low wage earners making-up the largest share of smokers.

My doctor says that there are some rules for becoming an indignant ex-smoker, foremost that you not smoke for at least a year (the relapse rate for smoking is quite high, even after 6 months).

Nasty anti-smoking campaigns

The worst Nanny State for anti-smoking is California where they do radio advertisements to encourage people to harass smokers. The message went something like this:

“Every minutes over a billion Californians die from inhaling second hand smoke.

Don’t let these murderers kill your family.”

When I smoked I was always amazed at the delusional Californians. On the surface they claim to be liberal, but they are among the worst Nazi’s when it comes to violating smokers’ rights!

It’s bizare, but in California people tolerate smoking Marijuana in public but cigarette smokers risk physical violence, even for lighting-up on a windy beach! In kown some people who call California “The land of fruits and nuts” . . .

Fear of death campaigns

As an ex-smoker, I was always greatly bothered by the fear of death campaigns.

However, I’ve watched several loved-ones die a painful death from lung cancer, and that was not enough to make me quit smoking.

Some folks may remember Yul Brenner pleading with people to quit smoking as he died from lung cancer, and I think that the fear of death ads the the most effective, even if the public at-large find them super-gross. Look at this one:

This one makes a great point. “quitting is hard, but not quitting is even harder:”

Anyway, I’m now an official indignant ex-smoker and I’m entitled to harass and annoy smokers freely. I can:

– Mock smokers, suggesting that they are weak-willed pussies because they cannot quit.

– Remind smokers that their clothes smell like those of a 50 year-old crack whore.

– Tell smokers about how lung cancer will cause them unbearable pain and agony before it kills them.

– Feign coughing and hacking to harass any smoker who dares light-up anywhere in my line of sight.

– Advise people on how to quit smoking (My tips to quit smoking)
