You’d better identify the tanks…




Hull Down


In China


At a Funeral

The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of him, and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept. “I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it,” she said. “I think that’s what he would have wanted”.

I’m not sure what is more honorable: Being married to this faithful wife to the end, or the Marine standing next to the casket watching over them both.


Meme of the Day

You can add the whore and a number of other freaks, traitors, and misfits to the mix.


To the Point


Bullet Points:

** The Inflation Reduction Scam – Janet Yellen admitted the Inflation Reduction Act was an economic opportunity, not for Americans, but for these leftists and their agenda.  “The Inflation Reduction Act is, at its core, about turning the climate crisis into an economic opportunity,“ Janet Yellen said.

** No surprise here – The Democrat fundraising giant ActBlue appears to be laundering millions of dollars of campaign donations through small donors in an attempt to cover up illegal contributions, according to the investigative work of O’Keefe Media Group (OMG)Election Watch, and other independent journalists.

O’Keefe, who started OMG after parting ways with Project Veritas, knocked on some doors in Maryland and talked to a number of elderly Democrat donors who, according to FEC records, had made suspiciously large and frequent donations to Joe Biden and other Democrats.

“FEC data shows that some senior citizens across the U.S. have been donating thousands of times per year,” O’Keefe explained. “Some of these individuals’ names and addresses are attached to over $200,000 in contributions.” The unwitting victims in the alleged multi-state money-laundering scheme have been dubbed “smurfs.”


  1. Identify the Tanks:
    1. Teledyne Continental High Performance M60 prototype.
    2. Best I can come up with is modified M41 based on gun barrel.
    3. T-64BM

  2. “I’m not sure what is more honorable: Being married to this faithful wife to the end, or the Marine standing next to the casket watching over them both.”
    Both. Semper Fi. Now I gotya find that Kleenex.

        • When I worked in Milano, my Italian counterparts drank that like it was going out of style. I’d have had a heart attack if I tried to keep up.

          • Was doing a design for an entrepreneur, a pro-grade consumer Espresso Machine (really great concept, before its time). Came in for a meeting with a test espresso, proceeded to add 3 packets of sugar.

            Let’s just say the meeting got interesting as his amperage went sky high.

  3. I’ve been on a reduced opinion masquerading as news diet lately, heck even Prager is off duty this week…which means my angst level is significantly reduced over the prior, oh, I don’t know, 5 years or so. Might also have something to do with new projects around the homestead that require serious tractor therapy usage…plus mostly zero cell service while out and about. But a looksee at just yesterday; Mr Weebles Wobbles & Falls Down…again, and Pete-RePete Listen to Me Talk’s so-called Town Hall with PDJT, who hardly got a word in edgewise…a radio silence Winter is much more healthy.

    China Target Holder- Confirms when in the mid-80’s Dad came back from a “businessman exchange” from China…said “they have so many people they create jobs, everything is done by hand.”

    I can think of a few here that would qualify for that job…except make the stool about 10” taller.

    • Fox News is dead to me.

      I harvest news from trusted and even not-trusted outlets. It’s good to know what the wicked are saying. BUT my consumption is reduced from what it was because I’m otherwise busy and it’s better for my mental health – I’m with you, Brother.

      • I don’t miss it…like a brain rebirth. I catch an hour or so of Chris Stigall out of Philly early AM, he’s like a younger Rush, and way better than Clay and Travis, who I simply can’t listen to. And I do like Prager. The rest constantly rehash the same “everything is politics and important” (it’s not) script, which has gotten seriously old.

          • I like his style, unabashed Christian, measured but interesting commentary. Plus he does local as he’s ingratiated himself into the greater Philly area as his new home. He gets it. As for Buck Sexton and Clay Travis (see EdB, the AI did it again on my original ‘Clay…’ sentence, missed a few words), sure they have chops, but not my cup of tea. In a word: Boring. Same with Jeremy Clarkson vs. Piers Morgan, both Brits, but one I have total disdain and the other I could read/listen every day because he’s interesting, funny, and fresh. You either have it or you don’t. Rush had it. Stellar tough act to follow.

    • I don’t about you LL, down on The Rim, but it’s been a wet Spring here in Northern Colorado Hinterflyoverland; rained most of the night and still at it this morning. Might put the kibosh on outside projects and said Tractor Therapy, which may be reflected in my later comments as I “lay around the shanty and put a good buzz on”…or something to that affect.

    • I agree so much of the “news” today is just opinion. It is a self stirring pot that just wants to rial people up. I get my news from the internet at a few websites to get several opinions of what is going on and then go to the websites of the local TV channels for news that is just applicable to my own area. That is enough.

      Tractor therapy is good. Its productive and the result is almost always an improvement of where your home. How can you beat that.

      • Sorry to hear that, tough run with those. But you have a valid reason and aren’t masquerading as President acting as if everything is just peachy. Weebly Joe – while in mid-stage Dementia – is fair game because he and his handlers know no bounds on their ego-driven arrogance, and say as much. No way would he would do the Tactical Gracious humble thing and step aside…which might buy him some points during [gag me with a pitchfork] “Pride Month”.

        • My diagnosis of MS in 2000 I ended my nursing (MSN) career of 22 years because I didn’t want to endanger any patients not remembering a crucial step in a procedure or treatment. Any arrogance on my part had no play, what FJB is pure arrogance and narcissism on his part and his handlers and sycophants. Yes, I agree he is lucid enough to know the difference and I base that on my Behavioral education (MBS)

          • He was sandbagged…by his own addled motor function clumsiness. But he proves my axiom that The Dem’s (et al) blame their mistakes on everyone and anything else.

            @ Cederq- Exactly. Be the bigger man and step away (as you did). But that requires character and humility. A man’s gotta know his limitations. The follow-thru action is just as crucial.

  4. “The unwitting victims in the alleged multi-state money-laundering scheme have been dubbed “smurfs.”

    Holding my breath for the IRS to question these donors. Where is their income to support the donations? What are the penalties for using someone else’s Social Security number? When will prosecutions begin?
