The Impeachment dog & pony show?

Seems to me it's all 'He said, He said' with not one single item of evidence involving the party of the first part - the guy who's on trial...

The true story behind giving someone 'The Finger"


The History of the Middle Finger:

Well, now......here's something I never knew before, and now that I know it, I feel compelled to send it on to my more intelligent friends in the hope that they, too, will feel edified.

Before the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the French, anticipating victory over the English, proposed to cut off the middle finger of all captured English soldiers. Without the middle finger it would be impossible to draw the renowned English longbow and therefore they would be incapable of fighting in the future. This famous English longbow was made of the native English Yew tree, and the act of drawing the longbow was known as 'plucking the yew' (or 'pluck yew').

Much to the bewilderment of the French, the English won a major upset and they began mocking the French by waving their middle fingers at the defeated French, saying, See, we can still pluck yew! Since 'pluck yew' is rather difficult to say, the difficult consonant cluster at the beginning has gradually changed to a labiodentalfricative 'F', and thus the words often used in conjunction with the one-finger-salute! It is also because of the pheasant feathers on the arrows used with the longbow that the symbolic gesture is known as 'giving the bird.'

My father's two favorite deer hunting knives - one a buck the other a dagger.. The one on top is marked 'Camille (his mother) - Christmas 1956'.
... 

When he went hunting (almost always in North Jersey), he'd always 'dress' the deer in the field and leave the remnants for the bears. 

He didn't have anything as nice as this - take a look:

Why didn't the Japs invade the United States when they had their chance?

That's easy - they knew there were too many guns here.

Here's an interesting side bar. After the Japanese decimated our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, they could have sent their troop ships and carriers directly to California to finish what they started. The prediction from our Chief of Staff was we would not be able to stop a massive invasion until they reached the Mississippi River. Remember, we had a 2 million man army and war ships in other localities, so why did they not invade?

After the war, the remaining Japanese generals and admirals were asked that question. Their answer....they know that almost every home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them.

1. The world's largest army ... America 's hunters! I had never thought about this....

2. A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:

3. There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin .

4. Allow me to restate that number.

5. Over the last several months, Wisconsin ’s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.

6. More men under arms than in Iran .

7. More than in France and Germany combined.

8. These men deployed to the woods of a single American state to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed.

9. That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan 's 700,000 hunters,

10. All of whom have now returned home.

11. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that

12. The hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world. The number of Hunters in the state of Texas would be the largest standing army in the world by it's self.

13. The point?

14. America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower.

15. Hunting -- it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter of national security.

16. That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.

17. Food for thought when next we consider gun control.

There's a scumbag out there somewhere...

Derek Jeter, who appeared Wednesday afternoon at a Manhattan news conference along with his fellow electee Larry Walker, set a record of sorts by getting 396 of 397 votes from the writers. Never before had a player received such a high total, the aforementioned 99.7 percent, without attaining outright perfection — which Jeter’s old pal Mariano Rivera did last year, becoming the first and only such honoree.




The surprising result — the “No” voter has not declared her or himself, thereby bequeathing us a mystery we might never solve — predictably set social media aflame, with even O.J. Simpson checking in on Twitter (“He’s probably from Boston”), and transcended by many miles the standard audience for a Hall of Fame story.

  1. I have my Father's knife that looks very much like the one on top. It is retired, but my wife shot a very nice 8 point with his Winchester model 70 30.06 last year - only her second buck. He got many deer with that rifle and so have I.
