Bush Emptying US Weapons Cache
The Bush administration is pushing through a broad array of foreign weapons deals as it seeks to rearm Iraq and Afghanistan, contain North Korea and Iran, and solidify ties with onetime Russian allies.
From tanks, helicopters and fighter jets to missiles, remotely piloted aircraft and even warships, the Department of Defense has agreed so far this fiscal year to sell or transfer more than $32 billion in weapons and other military equipment to foreign governments, compared with $12 billion in 2005.
Subject: Biden says Hillary would be better VP pick
I KNEW Biden, although one of my favorite Congressmen, would eventually say something that retarded, and I knew the SECOND I saw Palin that we were doomed. Unless Obama’s campaign comes up with something better than picking on Juan for being computer illiterate, we are f**ked.
Remember, y’all, this is a nation that is comprised of people who found Dubya’s lack of intellectual curiosity REFRESHING.

Obama’s campaign sure is fraying,
And the numbers are very dismaying.

Soldiers barking orders at each other is so 20th Century. That's why the U.S. Army has just awarded a $4 million contract to begin developing "thought helmets" that would harness silent brain waves for secure communication among troops. Ultimately, the Army hopes the project will "lead to direct mental control of military systems by thought alone."

frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.
Well, for example, the other day I went downtown & into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes, & when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.
I said to him, 'Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break'
He ignored me & continued writing the ticket. I called him a 'Nazi.' He glared at me & wrote another ticket for having worn tires.
So I called him a 'doughnut eating Gestapo.' He finished the second ticket & put it on the windshield with the first.
Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes.
The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote.
Personally, I didn't care. I came downtown on the bus, & the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said, 'McCain in '08'
I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health.
