Right On!

This has most likely been around awhile but it is the first time I’ve seen it.

This is put together well… with speech just like we would expect General Patton to say it.

I concur with the message. But I don’t think our man in the White House really cares.

For a man known for his ability to speak… he is not too verbal on this issue.

Further, I don’t believe we got Bin Laden due to Obama, but in spite of him.

Visualize General George Patton addressing everyone today,

As outlined below......

This is how General George S. Patton would sum things up....
And then catch holy hell from Ike.

He sure had a unique way of expressing his thoughts.


To ALL those whining, panty-waisted, pathetic Citizens, it's time for a little refresher course on exactly why we Americans occasionally have to fight wars to keep this nation great.

See if you can tear yourself away from your "reality" TV and your Starbucks coffee, and just for a minute,
Pull your head out of your ass -- and LISTEN UP!!

Abu Ghraib is neither "torture" or an "atrocity."

Got that ?

THIS IS an atrocity!

So Was This!!!


Islam Extremists are peaceful people? My Ass!

Millions of these warped, misled, sons-of-bitches are plotting to destroy our lives and our countries as we speak. Some of them are here among us now.

They don't want to convert you and they don't want to rule you. They believe you are a vile infestation of Allah's paradise. They don't give a shit how "progressive" you are, how peace-loving you are, or how much you sympathize with their cause.

They want your ass dead, and they think it is God's will for them to do it.

There are some numbskull do-gooders who think if we give these Islam extremists a hug or listen to them, then they'll like us, and if you agree - Then you are a pathetic, numbskulled, do-gooding, dumb ass!

If they manage to get their hands on a nuke, chemical agents, or even some anthrax -- you will wish to God we had hunted them down and killed THEM while we had the chance.

How many more Americans must be beheaded? You've fallen asleep AGAIN - get your head out of your ass! You may never get another chance!


And pass this on to any and every person you give a damn about - if you ever gave a damn about anything!

Niagara Falls - Dewatered

It's taken 41 years, but a previously unseen set of photos of the mighty Niagara Falls reduced to nothing more than a barren cliff-top have finally surfaced. The stark images reveal North America's iconic - and most powerful - waterfall to be almost as dry as a desert. In June 1969, U.S. engineers diverted the flow of the Niagara River away from the American side of the falls for several months.
A completely dry Niagara Falls has never been seen before or since the six months in July 1969 when U.S. engineers set about restructuring the American side of the twin landmark.

This set of photos only recently came to light when Russ Glasson found them in a shoebox in his in-laws' Connecticut garage.

Their plan was to remove the large amount of loose rock from the base of the waterfall, an idea which they eventually abandoned due to expense in November of that year. During the interim, they studied the riverbed and mechanically bolted and strengthened a number of faults to delay the gradual erosion of American Falls. The team, made up of U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, blew up their temporary dam in November 1969 and six million cubic feet of water once again thundered over the falls' sides every minute. Now, after lying unseen for more than four decades, a set of images showing the eerie calm at the American Falls that year have been unearthed by a man from Connecticut.
The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers studied the riverbed and mechanically bolted and strengthened a number of faults to delay the gradual erosion of the American Falls.

In order to stop the Niagara River running over the American Falls, engineers constructed a dam consisting of 27,800 tons of rock, stopping the water for the first time in 12,000 years.

The pictures were taken during the six months (June to November) that the Army was working to improve the health of American Falls. Two rockslides from the plate of the falls in 1931 and 1954 had caused a large amount of rock to be collected at the base. In 1965, reporters at a local newspaper Niagara Falls Gazette revealed that the American Falls would eventually cease to flow and stop altogether if the rocks were not removed. Four years later, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers were charged with de-watering the falls to clean the river bed and to remove any loose rock at the bottom of the falls.

The temporary dam can be seen in the top-right of this photograph.

The American Falls as they normally appear, with millions of gallons of water hurtling over the edge every minute.

To achieve this, the Army had to build a 600-foot dam across the Niagara River, which meant that 60,000 gallons of water that flowed every second was diverted over the larger Horseshoe Falls which flow entirely on the Canadian side of the border. The dam itself consisted of 27,800 tons of rock, and on June 12, 1969, after flowing continuously for over 12,000 years, the American Falls stopped. Over the course of the next six months thousands of visitors flocked the falls to witness the historic occasion. Once the engineers had removed the collected rocks from the falls base and made geological testing to make safe the rest, the falls were re-watered on November 25 in front of 2,650 on lookers.
