|[Bug Hug] When all we have is the news banner on our Home Page or some other third world propaganda sheet to understand what is going on in the world, it makes for a very limited and bias source to figure out what is true or no true. The media everywhere are spinning their BS to gain viewers and advertisers, hence, forcing more income from people opinionated one way or another, but not capable seeing the reality of both sides. Much of the real world is not posted anywhere and that makes for rumors and innuendoes that sway opinions and hate. Analyze what you read but keep an open mind and stay in your cave until they raise the white flag. Remember an assassin doesn’t need any weapons today, except to shake your hand or give you a big hug!
|[China] “The United States will remain an essential player in keeping partners together and regional parties such as Russia and China engaged constructively. ” The quote above from one of your posters. Perhaps a bitter pill to swallow but the Chinese will soon be all over Afghanistan. There might be positive benefit for the USA and the Chinese in helping with the airlift. It’s a simple argument but one that might help. They have the planes and a motive.
|[Navajo Code Talkers] In 1942, 29 Navajo men joined the U.S. Marines and developed an unbreakable code that would be used across the Pacific during World War II. They were the Navajo Code Talkers. The Code Talkers conveyed messages by telephone and radio in their native language, a code that was never broken by the Japanese. Link
The Cannibal Cookbook: Fiendish way to cook your friends and serve them right. Whether dining frugally on Scotch Brothel and Thumbs in Custard, or enjoying the more sumptuous pleasures of Mobster Thermidor and Peers in Syrup, The Cannibal Cookbook caters for every taste – especially a taste for the macabre.

|[“Only nice people paint.”] I think Bob Ross might have been wrong about that: Adolf Hitler and John Wayne Gacy paint.
|Well Health safety seal is just another way to exploit the virus and for entertainers to make some money. I never look for the seal and I don’t think anyone else looks for it either. I’m just happy to find a restaurant opened! I think it’s a way for celebrities to make a little extra cash. Video
|[This Must Be Real, It’s On the Internet] I am Mr David Morris, Inspection Unit Manager Inspection Agency in Hartsfield Jackson International Airport Atlanta, Georgia. During our investigation, I discovered an abandoned shipment through a Diplomat from the United Kingdom which was transferred from JF Kennedy Airport to our facility here in Atlanta. The two consignment boxes are worth $8 million. I assure you that the consignment is in your name, and you are advised to provide all details for claim, after custom clearance charges are perfected.
[“Afghan refugees”] What will we do with them all? Do they still make those great rugs? We could use a new one in the dining room.
[Middleman] Can you find the man in the middle of these great United States? (scroll down to the bottom for the answer)
|[New Song] This has gotta stop
Enough is enough

|[Highway I-10 Out of Louisiana] I have a friend who works for a power company sub-contractor. He’s in Louisiana. Saturday on his way there; here’s the photo he took of East bound, mostly stopped, traffic on I-10, all heading to Florida fleeing Ida.
|[Afghan Bombing] US Service members killed in Kabul terrorist bomb attack identified. A short story & photo of each is in this link. Link
|[The Greatest Generation Coming home] 1945. In 1939 there were 334,000 servicemen, not counting the Coast Guard. In 1945, there were over 16 million, including the Coast Guard. At the end of the war, over 8 million of these men and women were scattered overseas in Europe, the Pacific and Asia Shipping them out wasn’t a particular problem but getting them home was a massive logistical headache. Army Chief of Staff General George C. Marshall had already established committees to address the issue in 1943.
|Republicans and Democrats are nothing more than a pair of unfit parents in a custody battle over America. They’re not hurting each other near as much as they’re hurting this country.
[Chemtrails] I hope the editor doesn’t post this. The conspiracy people will believe it and it will go viral as proof (of what, we don’t know).

|[Afghan Refugees] Gee whiz, I can’t wait until the president declares the Florida Keys a national sanctuary and ships in a few million Afghan refugees and Mexicans. The real estaters will make fortunes renting and billing the Fed.
[Boat Maintenance] I only left the boat in the water for a week, honest! Do you think bottom paint would have helped?
|Remember Hurricane Wilma, October 2005? Key West mid-town and new-town were under standing water. It’s fascinating that realtors are scrounging for any remaining tidbits of property to sell, but fail to inform unknowing customers that almost all of mid- and new-town properties are ground level and are ripe for flooding!
Can you overdose on weed? There are no deaths attributed solely to marijuana—but it’s not risk-free. Link
