Obnoxious Droppings

A Former Sgt in the US Marines, US Army and Australian Federal Police - With an Attitude Problem - Looking at the Shits & Giggles of life from a Quasi-Conservative Point of View * * * WARNING! STRONG LANGUAGE FOLLOWS! * * *

S&G - Follow the Bouncing Numbers

First, I have to give congratulations to my daughter, Attitude With Legs. Even with having back surgery and all the pain she's gone through, both before and after the surgery, she's gotten her Associates Degree - Cum Laud no less. I couldn't be prouder of her, going back to school and pulling these kind of grades.

Now for the fun. Are you rich? You'd better check that 1040, because there's a real good chance you're gonna get hammered. Remember when Obama said that everyone who makes less than $250,000 would get a tax break, while those making more would get shafted? Well, he's now said that limit is $200,000 - I saw him say it, so there's no mistake. Then his running mate Joe (boy, this shoe is tasty) Biden said that the limit will be $150,000. To the best of my knowledge Obama hasn't corrected him. Then Bill Richardson, one of Obama's advisers, said the limit will be $120,000.

By the time they finally figure it out, anyone who pays taxes is going to be considered rich!

And on a different note, Luke Air Force Base is located just west of Phoenix, AZ. It's been there since 1941, but lately urban sprawl has housing moving into this area. I received the following in an email, and I have no reason to believe it's not factual:

Noise Complaint at Luke AFB, AZ

Luke AFB is west of Phoenix and is rapidly being surrounded by civilization that complains about the noise from the base and its planes, forgetting that it was there long before they were.

A certain Lieutenant Colonel at Luke AFB deserves a big pat on the back. Apparently, an individual who lives somewhere near Luke AFB wrote the local paper complaining about a group of F-16s that disturbed his/her day at the mall. When that individual read the response from a Luke AFB officer, it must have stung quite a bit. The complaint:

Question of the day for Luke Air Force Base:

Whom do we thank for the morning air show? Last Wednesday, at precisely 9:11 A.M, a tight formation of four F-16 jets made a low pass over Arrowhead Mall, continuing west over Bell Road at approximately 500 feet. Imagine our good fortune! Do the Tom Cruise-wannabes feel we need this wake-up call, or were they trying to impress the cashiers at Mervyns early bird special? Any response would be appreciated.

The response:

Regarding 'A wake-up call from Luke's jets' On 15 June, precisely 09:12, a perfectly-timed four-ship fly by of F-16s from the 63rd Fighter Squadron at Luke Air Force Base flew over the grave of Capt. Jeremy Fresques. Capt. Fresques was an Air Force officer who was previously stationed at Luke Air Force Base and was killed in Iraq on 30 May, Memorial Day.

At 0900, his family and friends gathered at Sunland Memorial Park in Sun City to mourn the loss of a husband, son and friend. Based on the letter writer's recount of the fly by, and because of the jet noise, I'm sure you didn't hear the rifle salute, the playing of taps, or my words to the widow and parents of Capt. Fresques as I gave them their son's flag on behalf of the President of the United States and all those veterans and servicemen and women who understand the sacrifices they have endured. A four-ship fly by is a display of respect the Air Force gives to those who give their lives in defense of freedom. We are professional aviators and take our jobs seriously; on 15 June what the letter writer witnessed was four officers lining up to pay their respects. The letter writer asks, 'Whom do we thank for the morning air show? The 56th Fighter Wing will make the call for you, and forward your thanks to the widow and parents of Capt Fresques, and we will thank them for you, for it was in their honor that my pilots flew the most honorable formation of their lives.

Lt. Col. Scott Pleus
CO 63rd Fighter Squadron
Luke AFB

I love it when slimy civilians run their mouth with an empty brain.

Hi! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
Does running a well-established website such as yours require a
massive amount work? I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to start a
blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing
the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?

I've been surfing online more than three hours as of late, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web might be much more useful than ever before.

Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?

There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks!
