It has been 243 years since we crashed out of the British Empire without a deal and things seem to be going ok. British friends, don’t worry about BREXIT.
A Navy Moment
In August the U.S. Navy announced that it will be eliminating the NWU Type I in favor of the Type III which will completely replace it by 1 October 2019 for wear as the standard working uniform ashore for all Navy personnel.
Congratulations to OldAFSarge
OldAFSarge – It’s going to be a rather long week. Families will gather to celebrate the nuptials of two of our own. Folks are traveling from the far west and from the far north.
A wedding is something that the old guys just show up to and enjoy (to the extent that’s possible). We donate money, but the women don’t want us making decisions. Sometimes we make arrangements with a military base to have the ceremony at the base chapel, reception at the O-Club or something. And we do it to save some of the donated money, just to be clear. But beyond that we are not wanted. And it’s ok.
OldAFSarge continues – It has been a long time coming, we couldn’t be happier.
Blogging must needs be take a back seat to real life this week. The Missus Herself is, even as you read this, on her way to help with all the details. It’s what Moms do.
I myself won’t be heading south until later in the week. No doubt the ladies don’t want the old man under foot while they try to get things done.
Here at Virtual Mirage, we couldn’t be happier for you and those you love (and who love you).
On Trump (the complete article is here)
Point taken. I don’t know if progs have good taste in wine. They seem to do things like pop open a twenty year old, $700 bottle, of Pomerol, purchased by Soros, and then pour it over ice, mixed with 7-Up.
I live in the remote mountains. As the guests of the liberal elite trash everything outside of their walled and heavily fortified mansions, I’ll simply be waiting at a pass with a politically incorrect rifle with a very accurate scope, and pick them off as they come. If they ever make it this far.
I agree. There is very little to commend the followers of La Rouch over, but this is one of them.
WSF – “The progs and the filthy denizens of the DC swamp had such splendid plans for a Clinton presidency”
Alinsky in his Rules for Radicals missed one critical point.
In my line of work, the enemy gets a vote.
President Trump fights back. How unfair!
Please read the whole article, linked above, about President Trump. You’re on point as usual, except when you think that a fine American buffalo is a bison. America didn’t elect Trump because he played by Marquis of Queensbury rules. We elected a brawler to kick ass. He’s not a Republican and he’s not a conservative in many respects, but he loves America. And that’s good enough. He can tweet all he wants because it bothers the progs.
There is said to be ‘the black Irish’.
And Bernie had a heart attack. Who knows if it’s his first? He could easily shuffle off his mortal coil on the campaign trail. (will they bury him in a Soviet flag?) Biden has been revealed to be as corrupt as Hillary. Hillary is just as corrupt and unlikeable as the last two times she went for it. Harris can’t get above fifth in line in her home state of California. Beto couldn’t get elected to be dog catcher. The Butt guy appeals to others of his strange preference. Amy Who? And Warren is still a fake Indian. Castro is a Castro. Yang wants to be a pop icon but he’s not ready for prime time. Spartacus is polling around 1% – he already had his Spartacus moment. He’s (?) been putting off marrying a woman until he’s the anointed one.
She (?) is in the same position with the Dems that Mitt is assuming with the Republicans, hoping for an opening to sweep in and ‘save the party’. The Democrat Party arguably does need saving. The Republicans don’t, which must disappoint Mitt, who will have to wait for 2024 to make his move (again). Will the whole “Trust me, I’m an inner-city person” scenario resonate and sweep the nation and push Michelle and the first man (?) back into the White House? She (?) hates the White House and has said it many times. She (?) hates the flag and had a few open microphone moments, which would put her in good stead with the Donkeys. She (?) has NO RECORD of voting for or against anything excepting making school lunch inedible. That’s always a plus. She’s just a disbarred lawyer.
One question that nags me is whether or not Barack would want to move back into the White House. He’s had it good for the last 4 years. No pesky teleprompter to haul around, hanging out on yachts, jet setting, buggering boys and remaining well outside of the spotlight. If Michelle ran, his corrupt activities while in office would end up front and center. And he has a lot of skeletons that have not taken center stage since he vanished.
