  1. "Did you know that the first US pilot to encounter the Japanese at Pearl Harbor was a woman? Cornelia Clark Fort was a flight instructor on Oahu who was teaching takeoffs and landings to a student in an Interstate Cadet on December 7, 1941, when Fort saw a military airplane on a collision course and swiftly grabbed the controls from her student to pull up over the oncoming aircraft. It was then she saw the rising sun insignia on the wings. She quickly landed at John Rodgers airport near the mouth of Pearl Harbor. A pursuing Zero strafed her plane and the runway as she and her student ran for cover. The experience changed her forever, later becoming the second member of what was to be the Women Airforce Service Pilots or WASP. Today marks the #80thAnniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, a sobering reminder of the devastation of war that led to the formal entry of the United States into #WorldWarII. Fort remarked of her service, "I, for one, am profoundly grateful that my one talent, my only knowledge, flying, happens to be of use to my country when it is needed. That’s all the luck I ever hope to have." #CAF1957 #RiseAbove #WASP #WWII #Aviation #History #Heritage #SheCan #SistersOfTheSky #StrongWomen #Strength #OnThisDay " Another Facebook find.
  2. Yep. They try to show him as a racist war-monger when what he was trying to do was get Japan to back off her occupation of other countries.
  3. Already today I'm seeing the anti-American left saying how FDR "forced" Japan to attack the US. They will parrot almost exactly the reasoning of the Japanese warlords that the US had no right to engage in economic warfare against Japan. And, as in all other years, they will neglect to mention that FDR was trying to use economic means to force Japan to stop her atrocities in China, Korea, and other nations in her "Co-prosperity sphere." Never forget.

  7. The wethers (thanks for providing that term, Hardpan) in our State Legislature care not for consequences, nor even for an instant consider that there might be consequences. They are tightly focused on Stopping Climate Change!!!!! and nothing must impede that goal. The biggest problem is that they have convinced a large portion of the electorate that they can provide an endless stream of panem et circenses at the expense of The Rich or Big Corporations but only if The Party maintains its total control of our state government.
  8. That is what the party that controls California is aiming for.
  9. Not really. I can make some assumptions, but we all know what that leads to.
  10. Wait.. what? I thought I was in the shot put and javalin!
  11. The images you get from most security cameras you can't tell Sophia Loren from Hulk Hogan.
  12. One of our neighbors had about 20 trees and every fall we would pick a few shopping bags full of them. Take the cutting board and the Wearever Juicer out back, cut them and squeeze them. Mom made pomegranate jelly with the juice. It wasn't until a few years ago that I found an easier way to open them. Last night I found this video. Gobsmacked at how easy that way is.
