A Rule 5 Wronwright Valentine...

As many of you already know, I was one of several bloggers who started up their own blogs after Australian blogger Tim Blair's independent site was co-opted by the journalistic plutocrat Rupert Murdoch.

Blair's site was and pretty much remains a popular hangout of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy and an altar to our worship of Our Dark Lord Rove.  And Wronwright is and was one of the most respect... one of the most pop... everybody knew Wronwright.

But nobody ever knew quite what to do with him.  So we put him in charge of the VRWC motorpool.  Credit where it's due, nobody could detail a black helicopter like Wronwright.  On the other hand, leaving him in charge of the keys meant you had to find the damn thing to admire it first, and good luck with that.

Wronwright's penchant for vehicle theft impromptu road trips extended to other bits of VRWC hardware he had custody of.  Like the subterranean lake drainer that caused that stink in Russia.  Like the lunar laser hurricane cannon, a $300-billion system with a $39.95 sight from the Cabela's catalogue and no we don't know what Wronwright did with the phased array targeting system.  Like the Secret Jew Anti-Ambulance Rockets.  Like the Seismic Disrupter.  Like the TARDIS.

Oh God, don't get me started on the TARDIS.  Listen, you know all those weird bits of history that don't seem to make any sense?  Yeah, well, we're real sorry about those but there isn't much we can do about it.  Wronwright's changed the locks on the damn thing and he frankly has too much seniority to transfer him out of the motor pool.  Michael Steele just whines and bursts into tears when we suggest it.  Granted, Michael Steele whines easily but you see the magnitude of the problem.

Anyway, what you are about to see is TARDIS black box video of one of Wronwright's recent jaunts I unearthed while trying to cover up ameliorate the consequences of his little adventure (Yeah.  'Amerliorate' the fall of Constanople, no pressure...).

In any case, all I'm cleared to tell you is that this started with Wronwright taking the TARDIS to Sturgis for bike week and meeting some friends...

And just let me say Wronwright has never looked more dashing than he does here as he leads the way through the door...

US Marines to employ monster armored vehicles against Taliban!

40-feet long, massively armed and armored, able to grind through the heaviest minefields and IED's.  Keith Laumer would be so proud...
Can't wait 'til someone names one of these compact SheVa's "Bun Bun"...

Lavish Congressional Health Plan cannot keep John Murtha alive: White House calls it a clear sign that bureaucratic, inefficient Obamacare is needed for the rest of us.

"What the hell was I not paying you people for?" 

According to WH Spokesman Robert Gibbs: "The President feels very strongly that under Obamacare we could have killed Congressman Murtha for a lot less money and resources and made a significant contribution to reducing both the VA budget crisis and the deficit with the balance, as well as creating a job in the late Congressman's district."

Gibbs went on to say an Obama t-shirt had been sent to the Murtha family for the viewing.


The  notoriously corrupt, racebaiting Democratic Congressman from Pennsylvania at the center of the ABSCAM and PMA corruption scandals, who spearheaded the bogus prosecution of the Haditha Marines...-
No, Congressman, they didn't...
is dead at 77.

Funy, he didn't look a day over 90.  Guess wallowing in all that moral and political corruption takes a lot out of a man.

Better people than I am will be trotting out the speak-no-ill-of-the-dead-meme.  Even Ace of AOS says he won't dance on Murtha's grave.

I will.  I say we tamp that SOB down good, just to be safe...

Think You Know How World War II Ended? Think Again....

Accepted for inclusion in the National Archives! 

"50 Days of War and Peace or Why Harry Dropped the Atomic Bomb! is a two volume book.

"Between the moment the atomic bomb was tested on July 16, 1945 (Chapter 1) and the peaceful mass surrender of the 2,500,000 Japanese military servicemen on outlying Pacific Islands on September 3, 1945 (Chapter 50), tens of thousands of people were being killed. Japanese military officers were constantly debating heatedly about surrendering or fighting until the last Japanese died. Each day (50 days-50 chapters) there were constant meetings, and many of them included the presence of Emperor Hirohito. The confrontations are detailed each day, and they led to the killing of a Japanese general and a lieutenant colonel on the Palace grounds by other Japanese officers during the coup d'etat attempt.

"Every Battle report and secret intercept discloses the intensity of the air, land, and sea battle each day. They reveal what every combatant nation knew; what they thought they knew; and what they did not know! More than 20,000 Japanese soldiers were killed in Burma during the last 11 weeks, and the location of the individual military units and their commanders are identified in the South-East Asia Command Battle Reports of Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten. Scores of battles continued daily throughout China, including the beginnings of the Chinese civil, the Viet Nam, and the Korean Wars. The invasion of Manchuria on August 9, 1945, is followed each day as 1,000,000 Russians stormed from the West, North, and East to occupy the Manchurian territory and take over 1,000,000 Japanese soldiers and civilians as prisoners.

"Detailed are all the naval battles in which the American and British ships were participating when they were crashed by the Kamikazes. The damage and sinking, the sailors who were killed or wounded, and the activities of more than 1,630 ships are revealed from documents released by the archives of the United States Navy. The complete naval battle of Leyte Gulf is detailed ship by ship and shot by shot, and identified are each of the heroic smaller ships who won. The tragic sinking of CA Indianapolis after she delivered the atomic bomb at Tinian. Fly with the planes who were on regular missions, and become aware of the internal activities before and during the dropping of the two atomic bombs by two different B-29's.

"Revealed are the minutes of meetings conducted by President Harry Truman which involve the decision to drop the bomb and the subsequent orders to make the drop after Truman left Potsdam. There are more than 1,730 persons in this book, and there are scores of stories about them- some tragic, some humorous, but always interesting. All the activities of the communist spies are revealed from their confessions.

"An enlightening research section of 60 pages is FOR YOUR INFORMATION which explains to the reader the difference between military ranks; types of warships and planes; abbreviations used; location of 2,500 cities, towns, and villages in the book; the activities and positions held by the 1,730 persons; and, a great deal of other information.

"About the Author: Dr. Edgar Leo Anderson, Ph.D. served in the U.S. Army during World War II. He is the son of Sgt. Gerald Anderson who served in World War II in the U.S. Army. His son, Sgt. Gerald Anderson, served in the U.S. Marines during the Vietnam War."
