Even Columbo Is Stumped....

The "Real Haters" Can All Eat Shit and Die!

Governor Kay Ivey of Alabama just signed into law a bill that would protect all monuments and markers which have been in place for forty or more years. The law also prohibits the changing of school names, etc. that have carried a persons name for 40 or more years. Monuments in question between twenty and forty years will be approved/disapproved by special commission.

Under heavy gunfire teenage heroine, Emma Sansom, guided Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest's troops across Black Creek near Gadsden on May 2, 1863. This was after Union Col. Abel Streight had burned every bridge he crossed as he was retreating east from a three day running battle that began in what is present day Cullman County. Forrest's men captured Streight and his entire command near Cedar Bluff (AL)  just west of Rome, Georgia. Forrest had his cavalry ride in a wide circle that passed near the crest of hill above the valley where Streight's forces had bivouacked creating the illusion of a greatly superior force while in fact Streight's troops outnumbered those of Forrest by 3 to 1. I have seen the dress that Emma wore that day in the state archives building in Montgomery. Union troops were firing from the opposite bank of Black Water Creek. No less than three bullets based through her dress. According to accounts, Emma raised her fist and shook it at the Union soldiers. They stopped firing and cheered the sixteen year old before retreating. After she had showed Gen. Forrest a place to ford the creek, he took her home and in token of his gratitude, he gave her his pair of deerkskin gauntlets (they are in the archives with the dress) Thank goodness monuments like this one and the school that bears Emma's name will be preserved along with her selfless act of heroism.

He Will Probably Be a "Shoe-In"!

A Montana House GOP candidate has been cited for "body slamming" a reporter and telling him to "get the hell out". The polls indicate (we've all heard that BS before) a "neck to neck" race for the House seat. While the GOP and many of it's members are far from perfect, I cannot see a "red state" like Montana voting for a candidate running on a ticket whose party openly supports a liberal/communist agenda. I do not claim to know anything about either candidate or Montana politics, but I do know many members of the media need to be "body-slammed" or worse!

Have You Ever Been This Eff'd Up?

Jeffery sends:

A bizarre story out of Memphis, where a drunk man passed out on top of the trunk of a parked car. Its owner then drove away having no idea that there is someone sleeping on his trunk.
Pictures show that drunk man passed out on a trunk of a strangers’ car on the side of a interstate. And the story leading up to these photos is even more bizarre.

“There is no way to describe it. It’s unbelievable,” says Carl Webb who owns the car. Webb and his wife were leaving Memphis Barbecue Fest Thursday night in downtown. They had backed their car into a parking space, “we came down the aisle, walked right to the car, opened it up on both sides, hazel and i got into the car,” says Webb

It was dark out and Carl’s sunshade was stuck up, so he couldn’t see what was on his trunk. The route they took after leaving included a very curvy on-ramp to i-55. They drove down the busy interstate going about 65, until taking an exit. That’s when Webb saw police lights and pulled over, “the officer came up and he said, ‘Mister are you aware there’s a body on your trunk?’, That did not register. He goes, ‘Mister. I’m not messing with you. There’s a body on your trunk.’ so I got out. We walked around and sure enough there he was still hanging on, still unconscious, just lying there.”

That’s right, Webb had driven 14 miles with the uninvited and unaware passenger sleeping on his 14-inch-wide trunk, “I have no explanation other than that little lip right there saved his life,” says Webb

The officer had to wake the guy up. Webb says the man was so drunk, he started to stumble into traffic and the officer grabbed him. He’s just thankful for the officer’s good police work, “good job man, good job. It was just outstanding…I hope he takes a good look at where he put himself and the hazard that he had open up to himself.”
Police detained the unwitting passenger, but there’s no word if he’ll face any charges.

Somewhere, Out There, A Dow- Corning Chemist Reflects On Their Acheivement and is Smiling....

Link O'rama.... Keeping Tabs on Things.....

 Compiled and submitted by AFOI...

AFOI adds:

"I've been thinking - always a dangerous thing!  One of the reasons why I suspect even the GOP insiders dislike Trump so much is that they had a "gentleman's agreement" with the Left.

  In exchange for being able to feed at the same trough, and get lauded by the press and invited to the "right" parties, they would put on a show of resistance to the Left's advances.

  Thus, we get the oft-discussed "ratchet effect" where the Left pushes forward, the public
elects the GOP to resist, and while no further Leftward motion occurs, the ratchet never allows going back.

Trump, for all that he's "all over the place", threatens that agreement."
** STRONG.  More:
** Scary.  And they apparently confiscate the property AND force the owner to pay for the necessary renovations.
Time, IMHO, to start voting "Unintended Consequences" style.
** More of what the Left says doesn't exist.
** There's a REASON I call the WaPo the "Washington Post-Fabricator".
** But it's the RIGHT that they claim is violent.  Uh huh.  And not just in the US:
** The dumbing down of our children is absolutely deliberate.
** Interesting background on Comey.  And another tidbit on "the memo" that's in the news:
** More generally, read this statement by Comey - under oath, no less:
** Say, aren't liberals critical of this when done by Christians?  File under "Standards, Double".

R.I.P. Powers Boothe

Though he played many different roles, the characters of Col. Andrew Tanner (1984 Red Dawn) and that of "Curly Bill" Brocious (Tombstone) are two of my favorites.

I Survived The Mother's Day Nor'easter 2017...

  Thank God, when I was a youngster, I also survived the Blizzard of '78 Nor'easter.

It hardened be to this type of weather here in New England:

 As you can see, I almost drowned. Almost.

Thanks to the weathermen talking about a Nor'easter for the weekend I was well prepared. 

Up North they did get SNOW!! <<<

Suppressed M3 "Grease Gun" with Bushmaster Bobby-Trap Trigger Device

This particular submachinegun was provided by the OSS to an European resistance fighter for a specific mission. Note in the second photo the suppressor implements rolled screen mesh instead of "baffles" to help muffle the sound.
