This Thread will bounce around a lot.  Just a place to post random thoughts and observations.

The recent loss of Joe Lieberman in the Conn. primaries seems just crazy. 

I drive in today and park behind someone with a bumper sticker that says:
They hate our policies, not our freedoms.  Makes my blood boil.  Here is where the real fight is folks.  They may want to change our policies, but they sure as hell want to destroy our freedoms.

Thank you to our friends in the UK.  Really, what other country so steadfastly watches our backs.

Wikipedia:
“Cocktail is a stimulating liquor composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters—it is vulgarly called a bittered sling and is supposed to be an excellent electioneering potion, inasmuch as it renders the heart stout and bold, at the same time that it fuddles the head. It is said, also to be of great use to a Democratic candidate: because a person, having swallowed a glass of it, is ready to swallow anything else.”

I <3 the UK.

I think my brother is over in Ireland right now. Trying to reach him to confirm. If so, the UK possibly saved his life.

Also I <3 BCCF who worked on this latest opertion all night.

We have too many heroes lost and not enough workout days to commemorate them. I think it’s fitting to always think of the men and women in service, whether military or peace officers and public safety, as we do our workouts. A bit of motivation to throw a little of our sweat and maybe a drop of blood on the floor in their honor.

Another Bumper sticker:

WAR=Wasting Americas Resources

Who thinks of this stuff, it’s so catchy?  I think it’s changed my mind about what we are doing in Iraq.

“I see Sheep” or sadly the original quote might be more appropriate.  Rain, Rain , Drizzle.  Suddenly, like a cold front Jeff moves through the thread, bringing the mood down with him.

Oh now you are taunting me with my favorite song…how many threads can we tie together on this one….house jumping, can we work in house jumping?

I will be out of here at 4:30, drive home, feed the family, take care of the bills, harass my husband, nag my child, and make it to Krav…I’m not a terrorist hunter but I [edited] should be committed.[/edit]
OH YEAH!!!!!

I think it’s a pure stroke of genius to put your political views on a bumper sticker.

Surely there aren’t any more constructive outlets to voice your ideas. Like, voting, getting involved in politics, actually making a change.

No, no. People prefer to just slap their mass produced opinions on the back of their car and drive away like they’ve made an impact on society.

Way to go free thinkers!

The word Islam literally translates to submission, not an easily interchangeable synonym for freedom.
