Another EPA Dirty Secret: Agency’s hushed-up human experiments debunk ozone health claims 4

EPA skulduggery. Nothing legitimate about the EPA’s claims.

EPA has proposed to tighten its standards for ozone in outdoor air. However, ozone in outdoor air, especially at current levels, doesn’t hurt anyone and the EPA knows it… but EPA doesn’t want you to know it. Here is a short exposé based on EPA documents obtained via the Freedom of Information Act.

Tanks-Giving 4

Battle Of Kursk

Battle Of Kursk

Oh my goodness! Here I sit enjoying a full belly on a Thanksgiving evening, and what do you think I am watching?

There’s a relatively new cable entertainment channel called, The American Heroes Channel. Today, it is all about tank battles in World War II. The current show I am watching is about the Battle of Kursk. There have always been films, newsreels, and other presentations of World War II battles, but the one on the American Heroes Channel are from a newer genre.

The American Heroes Channel presentations are a mixture of actual films and newsreels, personal interviews with both German and Russian tank commanders, and modern day animation of weapons, tanks, artillery, and battle action similar to popular video games. The AHC makes very good presentations.

The Battle of Kursk lasted for days and days. Almost three million men were committed to this battle, with almost two million sent by the Soviets. There were hundreds of thousands of casualties. Thousands of tanks were destroyed. Thousands of guns were destroyed. It was an epic tank battle, few of its like have ever been seen.

The ferocity of the fighting was one of the hallmarks of the battle, with the Soviets under orders to never retreat. Even when losing, the Soviets never retreated. Horrible casualties were inflicted on the Russians, but they outnumbered the Germans almost two to one. It was this advantage that won the battle for the Soviet Union. The Russians were able to throw more people and tanks into the battle.

The T-34 Russian main battle tank was the primary Russian tank, with the Germans bringing in Tiger tanks and other panzers, many of which were superior in weaponry and armor to the Soviet tanks.

Even though it is entertaining to see these programs about wars past, understanding the hundreds of thousands of casualties makes it a gruesome thing.

Thank God those days are over, and let us pray we will never see world wars, ever again.

A Happy Thanksgiving Day To You, Too 2

Here it is. It’s another year and another Thanksgiving Day. A lot of people take holidays like this for granted, talking in terms like, “turkey day”, “t-day”, and just “the holidays”. This time of year, and the idea of a Thanksgiving is much deeper than that.

Thanksgiving has its beginnings so long ago that nobody knows just where it came from. For me it is a Biblical thing. For others it is just an ancient fall celebration for a bountiful harvest, and the promise of being able to survive the ensuing winter. Both viewpoints are closely intertwined.

The whole point is to express thanks for our bounty. To whom, or what, is this thanks to be directed? Logic and history tells us that the tradition began and continues as an expression of thanks to God, or for pagans, to whatever god they nominate. It also means that there have been times when harvests have not been bountiful, and the prospect of starvation was a very real thing. This is also a present day concern for many.

In addition to material blessings there is a lot more for which to be thankful. Health is the really big one. Without one’s health, life can be difficult, and for some, painful everyday. We are also thankful for the closeness and love of the people in our lives.

Thanksgiving goes much further than just saying thanks. It is also a time to help people who are not in a position to partake of the bounty. We have a responsibility to feed the poor, and to care for those who cannot take care of themselves.

I thank God for my family, my wonderful wife, my beautiful children, and my warm home.  Even though we lost our son eleven years ago, we are thankful for the twenty-one years we had with that wonderful person.

Today, Thanksgiving Day, be thankful for those things and people you have. God has given us so much, and has taken away the horror of impending starvation, punishment, and sorrow that other people around the world have to endure. It is our responsibility to share our blessings.

Welcome To Obama-Stan 4

Maximum President With His Far Left Pen

I have been really lazy about blogging, lately. There’s a reason, and that is because just watching the television news gives me stomach acid, and blogging about those inanities gives me more acid. There’s just no way to express an opinion on current affairs without getting sick, or getting rid of your last meal.

Tomorrow night, our Maximum President will address the nation pimping his latest attempt at a legacy. This attempt will be in the form of an executive order protecting millions of illegal aliens from being deported, and will legalize their being in the United States. It is the closest thing to a general amnesty you could imagine.

Notice that all this is being done with an executive order, not legislated by the bicameral Congressional method mandated by the Constitution . So, we are now being faced with a problem. How do we treat a President that has gone out of his way to flaunt power that is not his, and has broken the law repeatedly?

Certainly, President Obama deserves to be impeached, or even arrested for defying the Constitution, and therefore, abandoning his Constitutional duty. Should Obama be jailed? That’s what we do to criminals, especially those whose actions adversely affect millions of people’s freedoms and pocketbooks.

We now live in a country that has gone from a democratic republic to a dictatorship in six short years. What are we to do? We can’t put the beast in jail, and we cannot impeach him. By the time an impeachment process makes its way through the House and Senate, Obama will be out of office.

Plus, no person in their right would want a drunkard like Joe Biden in the White House. That’s the main reason we will not impeach the Obama Beast.

 

A Song About My Wife 5

She Ain’t Got Ugly, Yet

When I was young and full of myself
I dated long and often
Then I met a girl who caught my eye
With her good looks and her cooking

She ain’t got ugly yet
No, She ain’t got ugly yet
Her momma was a looker and a real good cooker
And she ain’t got ugly yet

I made my pitch and we got hitched
With each other to live forever
She raised our kids and she’s still a looker
We have managed to stay together

She ain’t got ugly yet
O, She ain’t got ugly yet
She was the prettiest girl in Tennessee
And she ain’t got ugly yet

She don’t like football, booze, or cars
And she frowns on those who do
She kicks me around like an old hound dog
And her kids are afraid of her, too

O, She ain’t got ugly yet
No, she ain’t got ugly yet
She runs our family with an iron hand
And she ain’t got ugly, yet

We are getting old, and tired and slow
Folks see my deterioration
When they look at my woman they like what they see
And wonder how we got together

O, she ain’t got ugly yet
No, she ain’t got ugly yet
She’s tough as nails with a tender heart
And she ain’t got ugly yet.

We are on life’s downhill, all retired
Our lives we have lived together
We don’t care what we look like now
Our love continues forever

O, she ain’t got ugly yet
No, she ain’t got ugly yet
She started life as pretty as they come
And she ain’t got ugly yet
