Eagles v Crows

Kill 'em and Eat 'em....
A Great Aviation Story


A friend sent me this Eagle-Crow story, and in the process of checking it out I discovered this guy with a similar tale.  I hadn't known about the Black Crow animus for Bald Eagles before. This video is content related, but not part of the same account.
ASIDE: One summer, on Grandpa's Indiana farm, he told me that the county was offering a bounty of a dime, or quarter - I forget, for crows.  Woot-Woo!  Sure as hell beat blasting cow plop and tin cans.  I looked at the crow traffic over the corn field, and the register sang to me.  Trouble is, I think it's easier to close on a Rocky Mountain Sheep than a crow.  I  tried everything.  Even sat dead motionless amidst the corn for most of a morning without a taker.  Them's some kind of adversary. 


2 More reasons why I'm more
valuable than gummint


  1. Avoid cutting yourself when slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop.
  2. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by using the sink.
  3. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins.  Remember to use a timer.
  4. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.
  5. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives; then you'll be afraid to cough.
  6. You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape.  If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40.  If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
  7. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

PLAN B From Outer Space
The US government said earlier this month it would start to regulate carbon dioxide as a dangerous pollutant, sidestepping the divided Congress.

The decision paves the way for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to issue standards on how much carbon US factories, buildings and cars can emit, even though legislation has yet to pass through the Congress.

I will indulge myself by thinking the reason QE II is plotting to Disking Prince Charles, is because she realizes that anyone who embraces the global warming nonsense, the way he has, is a twit even by Windsor standards. 

By the by, MoSup watches that Charles Kurault - or whoever does that Sunday CBS morning show.  She tells me that the longest segment this morning was re the dire problem of global warming, as if nothing had happened.  I'm sure y'all have noticed the full court press being applied by the media, and the lengths they are willing to go in order to achieve their goals.  Someone said below that this will not be settled without bloodshed.  Let's hope it comes to that, lest we go down like Nazi victims marching compliantly to their executions.
These people are the same as Islamofascists; there can be but one survivor, them or us. I mean that in the good way.

In Passing
 I have advice for the children -

Guess who Obama nominated?
Mari Del Carmen Aponte’s nomination as President Clinton’s ambassador to the Dominican Republic had to be withdrawn in 1998 when the late Sen. Jesse Helms let it be known he had an intelligence memo examining her connections to Communist Cuba’s spy agency. Guess what?

Media Matters: The Jennings smear = the latest right-wing "scandal" to flop in the mainstream
"Flop in the mainstream ..." is, I reckon, now the Obamunist euphemism for "not reporting so you can't decide." Gateway specificates.

Welcome to Obamaville
 I think it is a hoot and a great historical throwback to Hooverville," wrote a reader named daman in an online comment. "These are the worst times I've seen in my 40-plus years, and I am glad my kids get to see it early. Maybe they'll learn to grow and be compassionate, yet personally fiscal conservatives."

In response to some criticism that the money used to build the signs should have been used to help the homeless instead ...

Zero inSpeaking of targets of opportunity ... Bill Moyers and Howard Zinn
(targets for criticism of course).
"BILL MOYERS: There's a recent tradition in America of people making shit up, and no one has done more of it than the self described historian, Howard Zinn. (Edited to fit reality).

BILL MOYERS: You have said elsewhere that if President Obama were listening to Martin Luther King, Jr. he'd be making some different decisions. What do you mean by that?

HOWARD ZINN: Well, first of all, he'd be taking our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, and he'd be saying we are no longer going to be a war-making country. We're not going to be a military country. We're going to take our immense resources, our wealth, we're going to use it for the benefit of people.

Filibuster on omnibus spending bill fails

Democrats held the vote open for an hour to accommodate Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent, an Orthodox Jew who walked more than three miles to the Capitol to vote on the Sabbath after attending services at his synagogue in the city's Georgetown area ...  he provided the crucial 60th vote.
