      I was watching the news last night and MAYBE there is hope for the USA. IF there is anything good that can come from the murders of our Embassador and the three other Americans in Bengazi???? it might be the conviction of billery clinton and the witch being sent to prison thus ending the liberals hopes the wicked with of Endor will run in 2016. I cant wait till Wednesday happens because--three State Dept Whistle-blowers are going to start spilling the beans to Congress. Also, some senators are saying that its also an Impeachable offense too-so maybe obama bin ladins rule may be coming to an end? :lol;:lol::lol:

      Haha I think you'll find Maureen was one of a kind! She was lucky in that she had pretty much the perfect stereotypical look for an Irish girl that Hollywood would have been after at the time. It's all fake tan and false eyelashes these days.

      Too true--she really is beautiful. Those like whats-her-""baby-bump""-face--kardashinan--are so fake looking even when they dont need be. besides-im sick and tired fo her baby bump garbage. I wish she would disappear--but hope Maureen (and) Olivia de Havilland--live forever. I have to admit that Mae West was the first I had a crush on-then (and she is tied) it was: Olivia de Havilland and tied with Maureen O'Hara.

      I don't know where to put this.

      YOU COULD HAVE HEARD A PIN DROP

      Once upon a time when our politicians did not tend to apologize for
      our country's prior actions, here's a refresher on how some of our
      former patriots handled negative comments about our great country.


      JFK'S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when
      DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO.

      DeGaulle said he wanted all US military out of
      France as soon as possible.

      Rusk responded,
      "Does that include those who are buried here?"

      DeGaulle did not respond.

      You could have heard a pin drop.


      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      When in England , at a fairly large conference,

      Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury
      if our plans for Iraq were just an example of
      'empire building' by George Bush.

      He answered by saying,
      "Over the years, the United States has sent many of
      its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for
      freedom beyond our borders.
      The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return
      is enough to bury those that did not return."

      You could have heard a pin drop.
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      There was a conference in France
      where a number of international engineers were taking part,
      including French and American.
      During a break, one of the French engineers came back into
      the room saying, "Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done?
      He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims.
      What does he intend to do, bomb them?"

      A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly:
      "Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several
      hundred people;
      they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to
      shore facilities;
      they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people
      three meals a day,
      they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea
      water each day,
      and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting
      victims and injured to and from their flight deck.
      We have eleven such ships;
      how many does France have?"

      A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference
      that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian
      and French Navies
      At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with
      a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries.
      Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks,
      but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn
      many languages,
      Americans learn only English.
      He then asked, "Why is it that we always have to speak English in
      these conferences rather than speaking French?"

      Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied,
      "Maybe it's because the Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans
      arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German."

      You could have heard a pin drop.

      AND THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE...


      Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane.
      At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in
      his carry on.

      "You have been to France before, monsieur?"
      the customs officer asked sarcastically.

      Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

      "Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."

      The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."

      "Impossible.. Americans always have to show their passports on
      arrival in France !"

      The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look.
      Then, he quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on
      D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchman
      to show a passport to."

      You could have heard a pin drop.

    • Keith,
      Jim here. Been awhile. Thought I'd check this thread and see if any comments have been made about the upcoming UK vote to leave the EU. I don't know what your personal opinion is regarding this matter but I'd like to see England become English again. If those of us west of the Soviet Union and China wish to remain free, we'd better stop playing the political correctness game and start defending our countries from the idiots who want to do away with national borders.
      De gustibus non est disputandum
    • Stumpy my old friend, how are you? Great to see you, I noticed you haven't registered in the "Active Member's" thread and I worried you may have left.

      I'm for leaving the EU but it seems like it will be around 65% to 35% in favour of remaining. Immigration over here is out of control and as things stand I don't feel there is any real and tangible benefits of staying in the EU. Your president has kindly advised us that if we leave the EU we will be at the back of any queue going forward so it looks like the special relationship maybe strained.
      Regards
      Robbie
