Russia Tower to be built by Skidmore, Owings& Merrill LLP

What, Me Worry?
Not Putin. As a matter of fact, he has big plans, hiring the architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, the same people who built the Airforce Academy Chapel in Colorado Springs, to build "Russia House" in downtown Moscow.
We're talking 2126 feet high, 134 floors.
I think we're also talking peace, and I doubt that Mr. Putin is going to be tempted to destroy that building, trying to blame us to bring his country into a war!
Way to go, Mr. Putin!


The Best, and Most Popular Weapon in the World

During World War II, since most firefights happen at close range, probably within 300 meters, the Germans developed the assault rifle concept. Mikhail Kalashnikov (see picture), a simple" infantry soldier, developed an automatic rifle, that incorporated the best features, of all infantry weapons at the time, including a high-capacity magazine, that made life much easier for the avarage soldier. Unfortunately, his weapon made my tour of duty as an advisor in Vietnam unnecessary hazardous.

No hard feelings, Mikhail: As the French, who preceded us in Vietnam, used to say: "C'est la guerre".

May you live long, and prosper!

Barack Obama's Lost Brother Found in Kenya

Why is George Hussein Onyango Obama, Barack's half brother living in a squalid hut on the outskirts of Nairobi? Mr. Obama said he lives on less than a dollar a month, in a two meter by three meter shack.

"If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related. I am ashamed," he said.

Mr. candidate Obama: Before you claim to "save" America and the world, try to make life a little easier for George.

As the old song goes: "He ain't heavy, he's my brother!"


Highly Civilized Human Beings?

As I write, highly civilized human beings are flying overhead trying to kill me. They do not feel any enmity against me as an individual, nor I against them. They are only doing their duty, as the saying goes. Most of them, I have no doubt, are kind-hearted law abiding men who would never dream of committing murder in private life.
On the other hand, if one of them succeeds in blowing me to pieces with a well-placed bomb, he will never sleep any worse for it. He is serving his country, which has the power to absolve him from evil.

Thank God we are so much better now!


Beware the Russian Bear!!!!!!!!

Please click the link under my title: Beware the Russian Bear!!!!!
You will learn that there were, and are, no military installations in Tskhinvali. Our "buddy" Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, another one of those corrupt politicians, like the ones which have been clinging to the rim of the toilet bowl, which our white house has now become, had chosen to attack a lot of civilian targets, killing mostly unarmed civilians, and destroying schools and hospitals.



The "Onion", an outstanding satyrical web page, ran this highly doctored photo, with its usual funny comment about the high profile public figures in our national scene. Earlier, in response to Obama's slogan "CHANGE", they had recommended that we send our loose change to him. I wonder, how much change to boost his advertising campaign he got from that?
So, now the secret is out: This is where "W" and I get our news: Because the "real" world sources are just too damn depressing!
