When I was a freshman in high school,I went on a class trip to the U.N. I'm sure other JOMers did also. Remember when the U.N. was going to bring peace and harmony and love to the world?

Old Lurker

If Trump would just promise to get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US I would be one happy camper.

I remember coughing up spare change in grade school for UNICEF.

Obama doesn't negotiate with terrorists, people.

He just gives them what they ask for without negotiating.

Miss Marple 2

Porchlight,

So true.

He wants to do something for the terrorists so he looks around for an excuse to do it. (This is why Bowie Bergdahl was EANSOMED by sending those terrorists home.)

He wanted to release the terrorists. Bergdahl was the excuse.

Does anyone doubt that, had this cholera outbreak happened while Bush was President, he would have somehow been blamed for it, and there would be calls to prosecute John Bolton for genocide?

Deb wrote that Obama is "the Grand Poobah of the Okie Doke." -

It wasn't a ransom.

marlene, I remember when MLK thought his children would be judged on the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

Now college kids can post roommate requests for kids w the same skin color.

Whoda thunk it??

daddy

I remember when MLK thought his children would be judged on the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

Anonamom,

Don't know if you watched my link at 04:55, but it's nice to see the CO in that video who saved the airplane being a man of color. I judge him on his flying skills and he did great!

Matt

"I am searching for a high yaller roommate" Progress!

I used to see this in the Caribbean regularly. Color mattered in those countries much more so that in this one.

"We're from the U.N.. We're here to help you." Run like hell as fast as you can in the opposite direction.

What's so bad about a cholera epidemic. At least the blue hatted "Peacekeepers" aren't raping all the young girls they can get their hands on. So there's that.

daddy

TK, I ought to know that number precisely, but I don't and I am ashamed of myself for not knowing. (Probably 60 feet or thereabouts depending on the boat) For my last Active Duty assignment the detailer said I was going to be the Catapult Officer on the carrier Midway out of Japan. If I had accepted those orders I could tell you down to the nanno-particle, but since I refused those orders and went Reserves (DC-9's) I can't say. I do know that in some awful weather conditions up in the North Pacific in the 80's when I was working 3 carriers in a maneuver to prove to the Soviets we could do stuff in awful conditions, that the boats were pitching up and down at times so much that water was sloshing over the deck, and it was a bear trying to time the arrival at the time the deck would be pitching up properly so you could get it safely on board. Lot of go arounds:)

daddy

I liked John Bolton's comment a few years back about the UN:

JOHN BOLTON: If you think that there is any possibility in this country that a 51,000 person bureaucracy is going to be supported by most Americans, you better think again. The Secretariat Building in New York has 38 stories. If you lost 10 stories today it wouldn’t make a bit of difference. The United Nations is one of the most inefficient inter-governmental organizations going. UNESCO is even worse. And others go down hill from there. The fact of the matter is that the international system that has grown up, and again, I leave out the World Bank and the IMF because I do think that they’re in a separate category, has been put into a position of hiring ineffective people who do ineffective things that have no real world impact, and we pay 25% of the budget.

OT,

I just noticed that I have 22,000 emails in my gmail inbox.

That includes ALL the spam, promotional stuff I didn't delete, FB notifications, ebay search notifications, etc. I delete a decent amount, but not a ton.

I have had this gmail account for 10 years.

How could Shillary POSSIBLY have accumulated 30K personal emails in four years as SoS? She wouldn't have had the time. I email A LOT.

maryrose

How come every time Louisiana has a Democrat governor the state floods?

daddy

BTW,

If you guys saw what the E-2 Pilots did in my 04:55 link above, here's an old but famous video of an A-6 crew that didn't wait around to see if the bird would keep flying.

Porchlight

I somehow completely missed the fact that Jindal is no longer governor of Louisiana.

daddy,

You have probably seen this classic of landing on a heaving deck in rough seas. But I post it for everyone else to demonstrate what is a risk in the emascalating of our military.

Does anyone think the ChiComs or Russian navy avialtion has the same "right stuff?"

Speaking of Oakley, I think Jannard may be the best example of self made billionaire who isn't a dick. 600 patents to his name, owns his own island up here, now revolutionizing the cinema game with his RED camera... And yet, nary a hint of the usual leftard sellout crap. Amazing.

Frau Rutger Gefahrfeld

This really irritated me (Femall!) so I'm bringing it forward:

What got into Richard J. Cross III, speech writer for Patricia Smith? Much like Arianna Stassinopoulos, being absorbed by the Borg means invitations to "A" parties and gigs. Less lead poisoning in the future, too.

Regardless, the reality is, I cannot vote for Donald Trump. I could never vote for Donald Trump.

So instead I am confronted by two painful choices: Vote for the most divisive political figure in the past 25 years or throw away my vote on a kooky Libertarian ticket.

I believe this is a citizenship election similar to others we have had in our history. This is a time to stand up and be counted — just like supporters of the civil rights movement once chose to do.

The central question in 2016: Are Muslim Americans an equal and welcome member of the American constituency?
...........
But the only prospect more terrifying than voting for Hillary Clinton is not voting for her.

The reality of American politics today is, she is the only choice.

Donald Trump rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, live stream link:

Rally is scheduled for 7:30 Eastern. Do not know if that time is for when Trump will speak, or if that is when the early speakers will start.

Well, well, well.

He's going to Charlotte tonight and then Mississippi tomorrow. Both have large black populations.

Speaking of leftard billionaires, billg and Milinda sat at the same table we had at the local trendy restaurant a couple nights later and our gay neighbors were at the next table and all a twitter about that. Of course, the restaurant itself is owned by yet another local billionaire who wanted a place of their own to hang out at. Bleah. I guess that's why our 1percenter threshold is $3.1M.

He's going to Mississippi. I think he can speak to Louisiana from there.

My second grade teacher's brother was an airplane instructor in wwII whose plane sunk after take off. I remember her choking back tears as we celebrated Memorial day in class. It comes to mind every year on that day, Most of my classmates had dads, uncles maybe even brothers who'd been in the service and I know it hit every heart.

I, for one, am thrilled to hear and see Trump reaching out to ALL Americans! Most of us are entirely FED UP with how the Democrats have carved up the people of this country into bickering, begging factions, fed lies daily by the liberal prog machine in order to keep them in line and hating the "other".

His speeches are getting better and more natural as he grows comfortable with the teleprompter.

Miss Marple 2

BeenThereDoneThat,

I agree. He's a gift, an inspiring leader, and maybe can get Americans looking at what's important.

Trump is covering all bases and getting better with the teleprompter beast. (We know how BHO spent his entire time when he should have been removing the asbestos from the Altgeld Gardens.)

Donald Trump is actually being truly "inclusive"--the new replacement word for diversity--more than than the carpy Democrats. Are you listening Oprah?

Miss Marple 2

I swear, this is amazing. It's like he has channeled everything JOM people have been pointing out.


We really need this guy to win. It could be the salvation of our country.

Truthbetold5

MM

The world!

BeenThereDoneThat

Unprecedented! I like that Trump talks directly to Black's about the disdain and lack of respect Hillary and her ilk have for them - it is TRUE, and every soul listening to him knows this. Sadly, many Black's in Democrat leadership positions hold the same contempt for their brothers as white liberals. God created us in many colors, and Mr. Trump appreciates that fact.

Frau Rutger Gefahrfeld

Mr. Cross III,* the speechwriter for Mrs. Pat Smith, faults Trump for selling fear--and that rhymes with xenophobia.

...while Hillary! considers Republicans her enemies.
Hahahahahaha

*btw what a [redacted] creep to MISUSE Mrs. Smith to push his own [redacted] political carp.

Anyone else see the gold medal match in 58kg women's wrestling where our own gal won for the first time in Olympic history?

She beat a Japanese girl who was two time Olympic gold medalist and world champion. Unbeaten in 16 straight Olympic or World championship matches. As soon as our girl (Helen Marguillis??) was declared victor on a score of 4-1, the Japanese girl began to cry and I mean cry uncontrollably.

It took at least 15 minutes for the to change into their warmups and erect the awards podium. She was still crying all during the awards. They had the Japanese IOC member present the awards and I guess they thought she was a shoo-in so let him have the honor. Big time disappointment.

As they played the anthem, she was still crying.

Great news. Anyone know why he didn't go to Milwaukee but rather West Bend? I thought he was going to do a townhall with Clarke in Milwaukee but then I am not up to speed on what actually happened.

They are building more mosques in rural Georgia - the residents rightly suspect it is in anticipation of bringing in refugees.

The same outfit owns hundreds of acres of land and already has built a mosque and a school.

Al Maad Al Islami purchased the proposed site of the mosque in August 2015 for about $1.3 million from Neely Farms Family Limited Partnership. Covington attorney Phil Johnson, former Democrat candidate for commission chairman, is listed as the partnership’s registered agent.
