TATTOO.....

Well I was looking of stuff to post and I ran across several things, one was that we had a GA congressman John Lewis lambast the GOP for the lawsuit against executive branch overreach.  And the stuff he said about "The president extended the olive branch every-time and the GOP would smack it away...They hate this president since he was elected, they never supported him."  That is funny....I remember President Obama telling the GOP, " I won...you didn't"  And the first 2 years was a totally democratic love fest in  congress.  I wanted to comment on this....but I just didn't have it in me. 

     I wanted to comment about Jesse Ventura suing the widow of Chris Kyle for slander.....But I don't have it in me....

I have seen the border being flooded with illegal kids and future democratic votors, people are realizing that President Obama orchestrated this to forment a crisis and try to blame the GOP,







 but this time it backfired.  Well anyway I am seeing that President Obama or his supporters are pushing the "Impeachment angle" in letters to donors to raise money for the DNC, and they are hoping to fire up the base to forestall the coming bloodbath in 2014.  Even though the stupid party GOP has taken this off the table, it keeps being recreated by the sympathetic media in hopes of generating interest and support from the President's loyal followers. But I don't have it in me.......


 Hey it worked back in 1997 when Bill got impeached and the Democrats picked up seats in congress and Bill became more popular than before.  The GOP wants to avoid another drink from the Impeachment well because the senate would never impeach the president.  There could show a video of President Obama killing somebody on the White House Steps and the craven cowards in the senate would still support him no matter what he does.
     So instead I am going to focus on TATTOO's.....


Nooo......Not those....

    These...


     tattoo is a military performance of music or display of armed forces in general. The term comes from the early 17th century Dutch phrase doe den tap toe ("turn off the tap"), a signal sounded by drummers or trumpeters to instruct innkeepers near military garrisons to stop serving beer and for soldiers to return to their barracks.
The tattoo was originally a form of military music, but the practice has evolved into more elaborate shows involving theatrics and musical performances. It is also used to designate military exhibitions such as the Royal International Air Tattoo.
     One of the best known tattoos is held on the Esplanade in front of Edinburgh Castle each August as part of the annual Edinburgh Festival. The Edinburgh Military Tattoo was first staged in 1950; it combines the traditional sounds of the bagpipes and drums with the modern aspects of the armed forces. In 2008, the Windsor Castle Royal Tattoo was launched, and held in the private grounds of Windsor Castle by permission of HM The Queen. The event's proceeds went to the Royal British Legion to help support recently returned troops from battle.
    The largest tattoo in the United States is the Virginia International Tattoo, held every year in Norfolk, Virginia. Over 850 performers play traditional music and many international acts join every branch of the Armed Forces.

  1. Thank you, Thank You, Thank You.
    I was about two thirds through your post thinking I'm ok with what he's saying so far, but what's this got to do with Tatoos. Then got to the Pink (Lady?)...OMG, I'm outta here, I'll give MrGaribaldi one more picture and if that's tattoos I'm gone.
    My breakfast and I thank you for not going down that path.

    1. Hey Juvat,

      I wanted to do a posting on the stuff I had mentioned..but I just didn't have it in me. *sorry*. So I started looking at my youtube collection to see what I could do and ran across the "U.S. Navy Norway" and I used to do this kind of stuff in college and I love the precision, the discipline and the pageantry. So I went with that;)
