This Week In Military/Aviation History 27 October – 2 November

October 26, 2008 10:03 pm

Hello Folks, I’m back. That means another seven have come and gone. Well, we’re comin’ down to the wire on Election Day, and next time we speak we’ll be turning the clocks back. The weather dude is starting to say lake-effect snow possible. BAH! I know it’s too early to stick if it does come down, but its just the idea. Oh, I complain about the snow, but it’s mostly hot air. I’ve lived with it all my life so far and have no plans to move, so all I’ve got are complaints. Never really liked it after I got too old to enjoy it, but it never bothered me when I was young. Oh well. Let’s get down to some serious history, shall we?

This Week In Military/Aviation History 20 – 26 October

October 19, 2008 10:16 pm

Hello Folks, betcha thought I’d forget again didn’t ya. Well I didn’t. Of course the strip of paper across the top of my monitor that says ” Don’t forget Sunday Night post Air Head” helped. Ok, it doesn’t say Air Head, the two words there have the same number of letters and the same starting letters, but from there differ a bit. Have you noticed the words “can’t afford” are popping up in political ads a lot more? “We can’t afford to send another liberal trial judge in Congress” and the such. Believe me Folks, with all the perks these Folks vote themselves, they’re the only ones who can afford to send anyone anywhere. And then there’s “Joe the Plumber” whose name isn’t Joe, doesn’t have a plumber’s license, is $1,200 behind in his taxes, (Hey, close enough for government work, right?) but is a REAL person! I’m so glad to see Mr. McCain isn’t coming up with imaginary playmates. And the “We” stuff. “We” don’t want his/her type of possible legislation after the election. What’s this “We” stuff, got a frog in your pocket? YOU don’t want this person elected so that YOU can be elected instead, and YOU are hoping WE go along with you. One of our local candidates has the entire national committee bashing him. According to them, it seems the company he owned moved some jobs to China, the mention of this being done was – spelled he – removed from his campaign website. Then, according to the ad, he sold his company to another company which had sent military secrets to China, admitted the crime, and paid a $100 million penalty. The Federal prosecutors said this put our troops in danger. This is so wrong on so many levels. His opponent doesn’t need to say anything except good about himself. They’re doing all the dirty work. Nice position, eh? Well, while I’m calming myself down, let’s get down to some serious history, shall we?
Have an AB FAN (ABsolutely FANtastic) week,

This Week In Military/Aviation History 1 – 7 September

10:14 pm

Hello Folks, Gee, it’s September already. Unofficial end of the Summer season. Folks startin’ back to school. 3 more months of the candidates takin’ pot shots at each other. Halloween stuff bein’ put out. I’m told that the Hallmark stores already have their Christmas stuff out. I’m not surprised. Last month, some “genius” decided to have a Christmas in July weekend on one of our local radio stations. Christmas carols started Friday and ended Monday. BAH! C’mon, give me a break. Every year as of late, I’m so tired of listnin’ to or watchin’ Christmas commercials and music, I’m GLAD it’s finally over. Oops, forgot about the after-Christmas sales. Boy, next year looks like it’s gonna be interesting, doesn’t it. We’ll either have the first African American President or the first Female Vice-President being sworn in. Very interesting. We’ve come a long way, baby. I wish them both the best of luck this election. You know, come to think of it, after three more months of daily back and forth with these Folks, I’ll probably feel the same way about the election as I do about Christmas, GLAD it’s finally over. Kinda sad, isn’t it? Now, let’s get down to some serious history, shall we?
Have an AB FAB week,

October 5, 2008 10:06 pm

Hello Folks, for me, not only is another week gone, but another year is gone. I’m another year older and deeper in debt. St. Peter don’t you call me, cause I can’t go, I owe my soul to the medicine/gasoline/electricity/grocery store. Not to mention the bailout. I think the government should give everyone over 60 who are on a fixed income $1 million dollars to get them by. If they don’t use it all before they go west, then they can have it back to put in the social security plan for others their age to use. It would also help the banks and the mortgage companies ’cause they could pay off their mortgages and deposit the rest in the bank and live off the interest. Most people over 60 on a fixed income wouldn’t want much, at least I wouldn’t. Just being able to live comfortably without worrying about where I’m gonna get the money for my medicine/gasoline/electricity and groceries would be nice. Aw, hell, dream on. Let’s get down to some serious history, shall we?
