It’s funny, I covered this from our old studio back in 2002 and was told by many listeners I was wrong.

Change We Can Believe in…..that’s the motto I’ve seen following this guy around. Obama has now INTEGRATED the US and Mexico.

“……these communities, which are integrated with their sister cities across the border…….”




“The Military Commissions Act of 2006, rammed through Congress just before the 2006 midterm elections, allows for the indefinite imprisonment of anyone who donates money to a charity that turns up on a list of “terrorist” organizations, or who speaks out against the government’s policies. The law calls for secret trials for citizens and noncitizens alike. “

Seeding Socioeconomic Avalanches


When I was in High School, I came up with a phrase….”speculation is suicide”….by that I really just meant “live in the present”, live in reality, not by speculation of what might be the future. I haven’t explored this site much, yet, but it seems somewhat highly speculative. Informed and educated speculation may have some validity. I do know this….one of the great symbols of the Mystery Schools is the Phoenix, which rises from it’s own ashes….and the motto embossed on the cover of Morals and Dogma, is Ordo Ab Chao. We can speculate that the powers that be intend to bring about the chaos that will destroy the “Phoenix”, or old order of things, in order to give birth to the New World Order. Ordo Ab Chao is an age old method that WORKS. Create a problem for which you have a preplanned solution.

“Many researchers, including Spivak, widely dismissed a report that cell phone towers and radio waves may be to blame for the bee’s disappearance. The theory has percolated throughout the Internet, despite repeated denunciations by bee researchers.”

Defense Review – Is Cloaking Technology for U.S. Infantry Warfighters Finally Possible



This woman understands the truth…





This is the law: The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible
victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill
is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is

As John Steinbeck once said:

1. Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll
just kill you.

2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

3. I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy.

4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

5. A reporter did a human interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The
reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked
him, “Why carry a .45?”. The Ranger responded with, “Because they don’t
make a .46.” * Credit to Retired Texas Ranger Joaquin (Waukeen) Jackson ,
Alpine, Texas .

6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on
his wearing his sidearm. “Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
expecting trouble?” “No Ma’am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
brought my rifle.”

8. Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!!

I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. To which
I said I did. She said, “Well I certainly hope it isn’t loaded!” To which
I said, “Of course it is loaded, can’t work without bullets..” She then
asked, “Are you that afraid of someone evil coming into your house?” My
reply was, “No not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching fire
either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and THEY ARE ALL LOADED.”

Parting note: An unloaded gun is just a club.

A woman from Austin , who was a tree hugger and anti-hunter, purchased
several acres of Hill Country land, near Lake Travis , Texas . There was a
huge tree on one of the highest points in the tract. She wanted to view
the natural splendor of her land, so she climbed the tree. As she neared
the top, she encountered a spotted owl. It attacked her! In her haste to
escape, the woman slid down the tree to the ground. The ensuing fall
incurred several splinters of wood in her crotch.

In considerable pain, she hurried to the nearest doctor, 35 minutes away.
She told him she was an environmentalist and anti-hunter and how she came
to receive all of the splinters. The doctor listened to her story with
great patience. He then told her to go into the examining room and he
would see if he could help. The impatient patient sat, and waited for
three hours before the doctor reappeared. The angry woman demanded, “What
took you so long?”
He smiled and said, “Well, I had to get permits from US Environmental
Service, the Texas Parks and Wildlife and Keep Texas Beautiful before I
could remove old-growth timber from a recreational area. I’m sorry, but
they turned me down.”


Barrett Tillman is an aviation author of note, he is researching WWII losses for a new book. These figures will surely give you pause.

For the new book I computed the AAF’s average daily loss in combat for June ’44: nearly 50 aircraft. Today if we lost that many in a year we’d probably park our air forces!

WWII Accident Stats

After the Camarillo accident a few of my acquaintances were wondering how 19 year olds mastered high performance fighters with little training during WWII. I looked into it and found some rather interesting figures. This same question was brought up in the P-51 Torque Roll discussion.

The short answer is they did what they needed to do and accepted the losses.

Unfortunately, it looks as if combat and accidents losses are usually
combined when overseas. The information below sheds some light on the accident losses. The info is from the Army Air Force Statistical Digest WWII published in Dec 45. According to it, thousands of aircraft were lost due to accidents.

In the Continental US between 1942 and Aug 1945 (see t214.pdf ) there were 824 P-51 accidents, 131 of those fatal resulting in 137 fatalities and 358 aircraft wrecked. The P-47 was much worse with 3049 accidents, 404 of those fatal with 455 fatalities and a staggering 1125 airplanes wrecked. This is just the beginning according to the table. If you add up all the accident losses on that table you get 47,462 accidents, 5533 of which were fatal resulting in 13,624 fatalities and 12,506 aircraft wrecked. Keep in mind this was just in the Continental US.

Also in the US looking at all AAF accidents from Dec 41 to Aug 45 (see
t213.pdf ) there were 52,651 accidents, 6039 of those fatal resulting in 14,903 deaths and 13,873 aircraft wrecked.

Branching out overseas gets difficult. As I mentioned previously, I can not find combat losses verses accidents. I also can not find specific type losses. But if you look at Airplane Losses in US and Overseas (t099.pdf ) you will see that page two breaks out the Continental US verses overseas. There were a total of 43,581 losses overseas and 21,583 losses in the US. Keep in mind this includes combat losses but I can almost guarantee nearly all the 21,583 Continental US losses were accidents. The Continental US does
not include AK and HI, the only places in North America that had direct combat with the Axis.

While en route from the US to the theater, 909 planes were lost (t108.pdf ).

Airplane losses on combat mission by theater (t158.pdf ) states a total of 22,948 aircraft were lost during combat. If we subtract this from the 43,581 total overseas losses figure above, we get 20,633 aircraft lost not during combat.

I found these figures absolutely overwhelming and much more than I ever would have thought. Total losses due to accidents for WWII may never be know, or at least it is beyond my researching skills, but I do think it was in the thousands. Gives me even more appreciation for that generation.

On a lighter note, here are some other figures just for fun….

9,707,109,000 gallons of gas used form Jan 42 to Aug 45
459,750,000 round of ammo expended overseas from Jan 42 to Aug 45

7,952,020 bombs dropped overseas from 43 to 45
2,057,244 tons of bombs dropped overseas from Dec 41 to Aug 45
2,362,800 combat sorties from Dec 41 to Aug 45
299,230 aircraft accepted from Jan 1940 to Aug 45
808,471 aircraft engines delivered from Jan 40 to Aug 45

40,259 enemy aircraft destroyed Feb 42 to Aug 45
