- Thread: D-Day
I know how much the fake news is despised but I watch the alphabet network news and all week they have spent a large amount of time on remembering June 6th 1944. They have interviewed quite a few vets from that period 75 yrs ago. I was fortunate to know two people served America in that war. Their stories are as incredible as the bravery it took for so many men to demonstrate in that invasion. This man saw combat action in North Africa. Italy Belgium and then finally in France when his glider crash landed in enemy territory during the DDay invasion.
His name was Herbert. He was a farmer and later a post master. When the glider crashed he was captured by the Germans and interned in a work camp in Poland for 9 months before they escaped. He loved to laugh and told me many things they did to stay healthy and fed. He laughed at the old Hogans Heroes show. Many years after the war in his early 70s one of his POW mates had gotten rich in North Dakota and began looking up all the POWs from that work camp. They began having reunions and l was fortunate to meet many of those men and hear their stories. Herbert's wife was an army nurse in Belgium when he escaped and he actually found a horse to ride. He said he could almost draw a straight line from the camp to where his wife Emma Lee was even though he had no idea she was there. She put him in a hospital because of his poor health and lack of decent food. They came home and raised 3 children who between them earned 6 college degrees and all became very successful. He and Emma Lee were two of the most amazing people I ever met and taught me many lessons about life and family.
I was blessed to have been part of their family. I think our country could still learn some lessons from that time and the people that answered the call.
... and then adds the "womp womp" failure sound. Some people clearly lack any kind of critical reading skills/analysis to what they read. Shall we?
$1.5 trillion U.S. tax cut has no major impact on business capex plans: survey | Reuters
- Great, no biased, clearly purely jounalistic headline about how the $1.5T cut had "no major impact" on capex plans.
- Then goes on and blah blahs about how 84% of respondents made no change in plans.
Then, after all the "no impact" stuff, there is this:
The lower tax rates, however, had an impact in the goods producing sector, with 50 percent of respondents from that sector reporting increased investments at their companies, and 20 percent saying they redirected hiring and investments to the United States from abroad.
Some people might then wonder, "wtf is the "goods producing sector"? Is that significant or not? So, being the reader I am, I google "good producing sector" and this is the top return:
Goods-producing industries consist of agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting; mining; construction; and manufacturing.Sooooo... 50% of those piddly-assed, insignificant types of businesses DID increase investments in their companies and 20% redirected hiring and investments to the US from abroad.
So yeah, "no impact."
This is why we are stupid and doomed.
Turns out she stole a can of peaches from the grocery store and got busted.
The judge asked her how many peaches were in the can and she said four. The judge said "I'm going to sentence you to one month in jail for every peach in the can for a total of four months. I hope it was worth it!"
I asked the judge if I could speak? He said to go ahead.
I said "She stole a can of peas also!"
lost last night. Looking at FB comments this morning shows how much in a bubble some of these people were living in. I made the first political post on FB that I've made this season congratulating Trump and hoping he unites the country and brings about change. That resulted in multiple people defriending me.
Someone posted they hope my family is the first lose to their insurance after he destroys Obamacare. One person even commented that she hopes Trump doesn't grab my daughter by the p***y.
Hopefully some of these people wake up and take a look in the mirror and realize they are what they despise. And if they can't maybe someone around them can slap them so they realize what they've become.
- Thread: He was a Hero
Buried pops today. He was a hero. He fought and was was injured in WW2 and Vietnam. We did not get along, but we buried him with his fellow warriors in the veterans cemetery in Lake Worth. Have not been in Florida for a while. Dont miss this oppressive weather. A move, a divorce, a new job and a death in less than a year. Ready for a new start.
