Blogger Fun In Roswell GA















I had the awesome chance to meet up with some great ex-Navy guys and one former RAF pilot today in Roswell, GA.  Broepatch called us the Secret Squirrels. (I don’t know why – I’m new to the group.)

We met at Mac McGee's Irish Pub in Roswell, GA.
In the rear: Charles, Broepatch, OldNFO and An Englishman in Dixie.  All great bloggers and way above my caliber.   They like to shoot, too.  Guns and ammo was a great topic (though I was lost most of the time.)

In front: Me - Studley Hungwell.

Good food, good ale, good conversation, many laughs, but just not long enough.

We are going to try it again in about 90 days… hopefully OldNFO will be stateside long enough to attend.

Thanks for the good time, guys.

World Cup Refund


















What a magnanimous gesture.

After Nigeria was eliminated from the World Cup, the Nigerian captain offered to refund all the expenses of the fans that traveled to Brazil.

He said all he needs is just their bank details and pin numbers to complete the transaction.

Sounds legit to me.

STOP TRASHING OBAMA



















STOP TRASHING OBAMA
by COL. ROBERT F. CUNNINGHAM and
PATRICK RISHOR – The Gilmer Mirror

Quit trashing Obama’s accomplishments.  He has done more than any other President before him. 

Here is a list of his impressive accomplishments:

First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student then denies he was a foreigner.

First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.

First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States.

First President to violate the War Powers Act.

First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.

First President to spend a trillion dollars on “shovel-ready” jobs when there was no such thing as “shovel-ready” jobs.

First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.

First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.

First President to a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S. – including those with criminal records.

First President to demand a company hand over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.

First President to tell a CEO of a major corporation (Chrysler) to resign.

First President to terminate America’s ability to put a man in space.

First President to cancel the National Day of Prayer and to say that America is no longer a Christian nation.

First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.

First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.

First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke out on the reasons for their rate increases.

First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state it is allowed to locate a factory.

First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN).

First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.

First President to actively try to bankrupt an American industry (coal).

First President to fire an inspector general of AmeriCorps for catching one of his friends in a corrupt case.

First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.

First President to surround himself with radical left wing anarchists.

First President to golf more than 150 separate times in his five years in office. (note: as of 14 June 2014 – 176.)

First President to hide his birth, medical, educational, and travel records.

First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.

First President to go on multiple “global apology tours” and concurrent “insult our friends” tours.

First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, in addition to date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayers.

First President to personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.

First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.

First President to fly a personal trainer from Chicago at least once a week at taxpayer expense.

First President to repeat the Holy Quran and tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.

First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona).

First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences.”

Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for baking at the last suggestion.  (Thank God he didn’t get away with THIS one.)

So, how is this Hope and Change working for you?

It is hard to comprehend all this guy has gotten away with.  Any other President would have been impeached.  What is God’s name is wrong with our government that they allow this guy Carte Blanc?  It absolutely boggles the mind.

My own opinion is that he is a devout Muslim and Communist sympathizer who is dedicated to the fall of the US of A and Capitalism.  Everything he has done is geared to the destruction of everything America stands for.  Plus he has set back race relations 100 years and widened the economic life styles of the American people.

And the left-wing socialist media helps him by supporting his lies and protecting his cronies.  He and the leftist need to go.

Noah's Ark in Hong Kong



If this is your first viewing you will find it quite remarkable.
Here is a WOW moment!
I found it amazing and wishing it was here in America.

The Noah's Ark Theme Park, complete with fiberglass animals, sits in front of the Tsing Ma Bridge in Hong Kong.  It is also a restaurant and hotel… The tourists go in two-by-two.

Biblical scale: The Ark in Hong Kong measures 450 ft. long and 75 ft. wide.






































































































 

































The Billionaire Brothers who built the Ark in Hong Kong claim it is the Only Full-Scale Version in the World.

And the imaginative trio even attempted to give the giant boat an air of authenticity by placing 67 pairs of animals at the entrance, just like the pairs of creatures saved from the Great Flood by Noah in the Bible Story.
The Creationist-Inspired Vessel forms part of a theme park near Hong Kong which was inspired by a young girl's Scrawled Drawing of the Mammoth Boat.

Architects appear to have used some artistic license in parts of the Ark – for instance including double-glazed windows, a fine dining restaurant and luxurious bedrooms.

Inside, real-life exotic animals can be found - including a nautilus, a toucan, and reams of fish.

Authentic: Various fiberglass animals stand outside the Ark to mimic the Bible tale where Noah took creatures on board the vessel.
The Noah's Ark Theme Park is now run by several Christian organizations, who use it to promote peace and unity.

Matthew Pine, manager of Noah's Ark Theme Park, said: “They had a vision to do something remarkable, something outstanding.  They came up with many ideas.
Some of them were really outrageous.”

“But then they came across this girl's drawing, and knew it would be something do-able that captured imaginations. So they hired architects and engineers to create the replica, Noah's Ark.”

Land-bound: The Hong Kong-based Noah's Ark theme park was built in 2009 and is popular among tourists.

Matthew added: “The reason we chose that moment in the Bible's story is because this is the message we want to bring to Hong Kong, to China, to the world.

“In our lives we always face floods, we will face trials, and we will face difficulties. Hopefully Noah's Ark will inspire people to pass through those troubles as Noah did in his day.”

The Ark opened in May 2009; 17 years after plans were first made for the enormous structure. Hope you too enjoyed having seen this masterful creation.
