Military Humor and staff quotes....

I decided to take a break for a day from all the blogging about the NSA spying on us, the IRS targeting us, the DOJ scoping us, the FBI blowing off any questions about the IRS targeting us, we have the DHS buying up ammo at a prolific rate and targeting us as "Extremist"., we have the HHS secretary with the epitome of "death panels" quotes about us, we have the EPA making more rulings that circumvent the rule of law about us......well crap I am sure I forgot a few....dozen alphabet agencies that believe that we have to be ruled by the elitist because we are too stupid to take care of ourselves...on the other hand. 
     Perhaps the fall of America was assured when the education of our children was turned over to the very entity that was feared the most by our founders..the Government .
     Perhaps the downfall was assured when Woodrow Wilson 30 years later inserted the word "Democracy" into the popular lexicon for the first time.
     Perhaps our hopes are dashed by politicians of a certain political party Communist,Heathen,Godless, Leftist,, Marxist assholes that put their political future above the country Democrats who fight voter I.D. laws because they would benefit from the casting of votes by non-Americans.
     Perhaps when we awoke on November 7th and realized that the clueless dumbed down low information
Or maybe we should all have recognized that the end was approaching when we woke up last November 7th to find that the voters of this country had put the community-organizing jerk Barack 0bama back into office for the second time.  There is no way a country based on liberty and self-reliance can survive an electorate stupid enough to put a sorry anti-American SOB like 0bama back into office.  - See more at: http://www.boortz.com/weblogs/nealz-nuze/2013/jun/19/you-might-not-want-read/#sthash.4Qenm4EN.dpuf
Perhaps the demise of America was assured 100 years ago when it was decided that the education of our children would be turned over to the very entity they should fear the most – government.
Perhaps America’s downfall was assured about 30 years later when Woodrow Wilson inserted the word “democracy” into a State of the Union speech for the very first time.
Perhaps our last hopes are being dashed by politicians who fight voter ID laws because they know that they will be the ones to benefit from fraudulent votes cast by non-citizens.
Surely Americans should have recognized that hope was lost when the lie started spreading about a “right to vote” in presidential elections.
Or maybe we should all have recognized that the end was approaching when we woke up last November 7th to find that the voters of this country had put the community-organizing jerk Barack 0bama back into office for the second time.  There is no way a country based on liberty and self-reliance can survive an electorate stupid enough to put a sorry anti-American SOB like 0bama back into office.

.voters, reelected a community activist that loves to take vacations and play golf and cater to the democrat base rather than represent all of us.  How can a country based on self-reliance and liberty  survive an electorate stupid enough to put a sorry assed  anti-American SOB like Obama back into office.
    
     Well I saw this cartoon surfing around the internet.  I remembered something like this at the Flight Operations building in Ansbach Germany with the Ist Armored Division  in 1987 when I went there for training with my MOS on loan from the 1st Infantry Division.
