There has been no defense of this nation since, oh, I don’t know, about half way through WWII.

From Fake Sports Center. It made me laugh.
Of course you should also listen to the Auburn radio call. That website is kind of annoying, but still, what a great call.
It won’t see much use today, maybe for breakfast. on the eggs, don’tcha know, but not much else.
The guy knows what he’s talking about:
Everyone that knew what they were doing are all gone, driven out in a tide of superfluousness, and we’re going to have to do it ourselves if we want it done at all. I can tell you that “the experts” in these matters don’t know squat about what makes a pleasant place to live in. The “experts” built UMASS Dartmouth, and teach there. By the mark of that beast you should know them. You’ve been told that building and repairing a house is an arcane, complicated business left to professionals. You’re warned never to try anything substantial to repair your house. They tell you to change out the kitchen counters and the tile like they’re underwear, spending the same money over and over again, but the rest of the house is as complicated as the building code is. No it’s not. In my experience, if it’s in your house, and it’s fussy or complicated, it’s bad and you don’t want it. A good house is simpler than a bad house, and that rule of thumb gets truer every day.

I wonder why a 2009 graduate of the academy is not still in the army.
A photo of the couple:
I look at that picture and I see warriors.
Go read that article, then for some fun, check out Steve Sailer and his commentors.
The penultimate paragraph of a nice post by TM Lutas:
So why has CEO production not drawn attention of the same people addressing the “IT shortage”? Why doesn’t the CEO grooming process create more candidates that drive costs down? Why is shareholder value being squandered in so many cases in highly compensating a stream of short lived, not very good chief executives, who drive the company into disaster time and again?
We, the worker bees of this economy, are faced with the prospect of billionaire CEO’s lobbying congress to admit more workers to this country. More workers will only mean depressed wages for us worker bees. This is especially true for the people with the lower skill sets.
I think we should have a contest, like was done in Million Dollar Arm, only this time we search for CEO talent. My preference would be to find some guy that just didn’t quite make the cut for IIT. You know, someone of the wrong caste, or maybe some poor farmer, one of the types that never gets a break in India. There is only about 500 million people that fit this category. There must be a really hardworking and smart young guy that is capable of being the CEO of Facebook within that group. He’s probably do it for about one quarter of what Zuckerberg takes home.
SOP. It is not Standard Operating Procedure. SOP is an abbreviation for Standing Operating Procedure. Think about it. It makes complete sense.
We are definitely on the road to perdition.
Six or seven Mexicans showed up to re-roof the neighbors house. This wouldn’t have happened if ICE were on the job. I want to tell you there is not a word of English being spoken over there!
I imagine it’s only going to get worse as the shutdown continues. Oh, the horror!!!
