'We sleep soundly in our beds because
rough men stand ready in the night to
visit violence on those who would do us harm.'
"A training jump this AM, and then off to celebrate
Thanksgiving with friends and family."

1960 Peaceful Mayberry ... Why?
The reason Mayberry was so peaceful and quiet was because nobody was married - Andy, Aunt Bea, Barney, Floyd, Howard, Goober, Gomer, Sam, Earnest T Bass, Helen, Thelma Lou, Clara, and of course Opie - all single.
The only married person was Otis, and he stayed drunk.

You can't make this stuff up
How the term 'Blown Away' got started.
'Blowing From Guns'
was actually a method
of cringe-worthy execution
from the 16th century onward;
up until 1930 in bloody old
The Brits were quite
expert with this method
during the Great Rebellion
in India, 1857. See below:

'Let’s be clear, though. Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.'
~ Mrs. Clinton
"Clinton’s statement is extreme rhetoric that has no place in adult conversations in the aftermath of 9/11, which claimed the lives of 2,997.
Or the attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates in Beirut, Karachi, Nairobi, Tanzania, Kenya, Sarajevo, Jeddah, Benghazi, Herat, and Erbil.
Or the Moscow theater hostage situation, which killed more than 100 and injured more than 700. Or the nine synchronized bomb blasts in Jaipur that killed 80. Or the Ahmedabad bombings a year later that took the lives of 56 and injured 200.
Followed two months later by the Delhi bombings that took another few dozen. Or the Islamabad Marriot hotel bombing that killed two U.S. servicemen and 52 others. The Qahtaniya bombings of the Yazidi that killed nearly 800 and wounded 1,600.
The 2008 attacks on Christians in Mosul that killed more than 40. The siege of Mumbai, killing 166. The Little Rock recruitment office shooting. Fort Hood. The 2009 Marriott and Ritz-Carlton bombing in Indonesia.
The Nag Hamadi massacre of Coptic Christians. The Moscow Metro bombings that killed 40. The London Underground bombings that killed 53 and injured 700. The Madrid train bombings that killed 191 people and wounded 1,800.
The Mumbai train bombings that killed 209 injured more than 700. The Beslan school hostage crisis, where some 385 people — including 186 children — were killed. The murder of Theo Van Gogh. The 2005 Delhi bombings.
The Amman bombings that killed more than 60 and injured 115. The Westgate shopping mall attack where 67 were killed and 175 wounded. ISIS’ beheadings of Americans, of Christians, of other enemies of the state.
Each of these attacks — and countless others — were done in the name of Islam. And while it might comfort us to issue platitudes about Islam being peaceful and having “nothing to do” with these attacks, such statements are unbecoming of serious politicians."
~ Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist, 11/24/15
Mrs. Clinton and Mr. 'Setback'Obama
are in denial regarding Islamic terrorism.
Throughout their careers, three words have
We pray that not all Democrats
are this blindly brainwashed.
Do not nominate someone under
investigation by the FBI, perhaps
headed to prison.
Harry Truman and Jack Kennedy
are spinning in their graves at 5,000 RPM.
426 more days until
January 20, 2017
and a new president.
