Things n Stuff

It`s that time again folks, time for me to post something, but to be honest I`ve been busy and haven`t paid much attention to current affairs lately so I`m out of the loop temporarily. Oh well...I`ll catch up eventually.
Anyway I have some cool links from one of my all time favorite sites, The Braden Files ,to enlighten and entertain you with.

In this day and age, what with almost every general worth his star being PC and dabbling in politics in hopes of some form of future in the political arena, it makes me wonder what happened to generals like This.

Do you want to know the ropes on nautical terms? It won`t overwhelm you to start over with a clean slate and bear down to the bitter end. It`s first rate. Click

The Marines have always been the favorite for other military branches to make fun of, but when push comes to shove, what do they really think? Semper Fi

The Navy answers that age old question: Why did the chicken cross the road?

That reminds me about how much of the Navy was just pure chicken......droppings.

Thanks for the laugh. The post is on it's way to my sailor son in Yokuska. I'm sure he'll interpret the modern Navy lingo for me.

Oh I`m famailiar with military double-speak. Even some of the best lawyers can`t beat the government at using volumes of eloquent words to say nothing.

Thanks for including the Marine quotes. Although I always like all the piss-and-vinegar quotes, my favorite has got to be Ronald Reagan's.
