  1. Just rain in your neck of the woods? No flooding? Even rain can cause havoc in Texas because no one can drive in it. LOL Glad you are ok. Thanks for checking in.
  2. King Putt will go down in history as pulling the biggest con ever over on the American people. Americans elected a Oreo, Muslim, homosexual to the highest office in the land...TWICE! LOL Obama, DuJan said, is “not heterosexual and he’s not bisexual. He’s homosexual.” Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen, who worked with the National Security Agency from 1984 to 1988 as a Navy intelligence analyst, confirmed DuJan’s claims. “It is common knowledge in the Chicago gay community that Obama actively visited the gay bars and bathhouses in Chicago while he was an Illinois state senator,” Madsen told WND. http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/claim-obama-hid-gay-life-to-become-president/
  3. That's probably why he lit up the White House in rainbow colors. It was his way of "coming out" LOL
  4. Hey Y'all..we had some serious twisters last night. East Texas got hit real bad. I think they said on the news 54 injured and 5 dead. Abbott tweeted Texas Task Force 2 has been sent to assist in Canton and Van Zandt, County, so help in on the way if you live in those parts. I know we have some members that live out that way so please report in and let me know that y'all are ok. This has been a terrible spring for twisters and hail. I've been lucky so far. Hope my luck holds out!
  5. Oh look, another hot bed that we are jumping into. U.S. armored vehicles are deploying in areas in northern Syria along the tense border with Turkey, a few days after a Turkish airstrike that killed 20 U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters, a Syrian war monitor and Kurdish activists said Friday. Footage posted by Syrian activists online showed a convoy of U.S. armored vehicles driving on a rural road in the village of Darbasiyah, a few hundred meters from the Turkish border. Clashes in the area were reported between Turkish and Kurdish forces Wednesday a day after the Turkish airstrike which also destroyed a Kurdish command headquarters. <snip> The U.S. has recently shifted from working quietly behind the scenes in Syria's conflict toward overt displays of U.S. force in an attempt to shape the fight. Last month, about 200 Marines rolled into northern Syria backed with howitzers, significantly widening America's footprint in a highly toxic battlefield. The Marines' deployment came days after another intervention, when dozens of army troops drove outside the town of Manbij, riding Stryker armored vehicles, following an earlier conflagration of fighting between Syrian Kurdish troops and Turkish troops. The U.S. deployment in Manbij intentionally put Americans in the middle of that rivalry, hoping to cool it down.

  6. At 51 seconds the smoke cloud on the right looks like a beast face to me..
  7. There she blows! Japan's Sakurajima volcano erupts, 1st major eruption in 9 months Mt. Sakurajima, a volcano in southwestern Japan's Kagoshima Prefecture, erupted Friday, the Meteorological Agency said, in the first major event there in nine months. A plume of ash spewed from the 1,117-meter volcano's Showa crater in the 11:01 a.m. eruption, reaching about 3.2 kilometers into the sky, the agency said, adding that similar major eruptions could occur. The last major eruption occurred at the mountain on July 26, 2016. https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2017/04/dff9577edad1-japans-sakurajima-volcano-erupts-1st-major-eruption-in-9-months.html
  8. This smells like a used car deal..."No money down, Sign and Drive" ... Then you get the bill in the mail. Ha Ha Ha “It’s phenomenal. It’s the most incredible equipment you’ve ever seen -- shoots missiles right out of the sky. … We’re going to protect them. But they should pay for that, and they understand that.” Trump’s remarks stoked concerns he has set out to materialize his commitment to having allies and partners pay for what he has called a “fair share” of defense costs. Seoul refuted his argument on THAAD, saying it has not been “informed” of any payment. The deployment plan had also been settled in line with the South Korea-US Status of Forces Agreement, which governs the stationing of some 28,500 US troops here, the foreign and defense ministries said.

  9. OMG...You gotta love this. First we insist that THAAD is deployed in So. Korea then we tell them, "Oh by the way, you owe us a Billion bucks" LOL Trump baffles Seoul over THAAD, FTA Payment call will turn public against THAAD By Jun Ji-hye U.S. President Donald Trump has abruptly demanded that Seoul pay $1 billion for the deployment of a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery here, stoking negative public sentiment against the anti-missile system. In response to the unexpected, deal-breaking remark, the Ministry of National Defense said Friday that Washington should pay any costs in accordance with the two countries' Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) that governs the treatment of U.S. forces stationed here. Trump's comments were squarely against the allies' previous agreement, reached based on SOFA, which calls for South Korea to provide the U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) with the site for the anti-missile shield and other infrastructure, and for the U.S. to bear the cost of deployment and operation. The government provided the USFK with land in Seongju County, North Gyeongsang Province, previously owned by Lotte Group, April 20. Trump's surprise remarks are adding fuel to the ongoing controversy over the deployment of the THAAD battery, giving objectors another reason to oppose it, along with fierce protests from local residents over the system's possible environmental risks. During an interview with Reuters, Thursday, President Trump said the THAAD system was to protect South Korean people, questioning why the U.S. should pay for that. "On the THAAD system, it's about a billion dollars. I said, ‘Why are we paying? Why are we paying a billion dollars? We're protecting,'" he said. "So, I informed South Korea it would be appropriate if they paid." More: http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/nation/2017/04/205_228502.html
  10. Are you sure that is not from the movie "White House Down?" LOL
  11. As long as Trump continues to do as he is instructed by TPTB, he will stay in the Oval office. If not, then expect to see President Pence assume the position. Nothing is cast in stone.
  12. What is wrong with these people? Why on earth would they protest over a system that could save their lives? The U.S. Forces Korea began installing key components of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (Thaad) battery early Wednesday morning at a golf course in Seongju County, North Gyeongsang, resulting in scuffles with local residents who objected to the stealthy deployment of the antimissile system. In the dead of night, the military hauled in components of the U.S.-made Thaad battery, including a powerful AN/TPY-2 radar system and at least two missile launchers and interceptors used in them, to a golf course it acquired from Lotte Group and turned over to the U.S. Forces Korea. The process began around 4:40 a.m. and continued to around 7 a.m. as some 20 military trucks and trailers arrived at the Seongju site, transferring the Thaad components, along with generators and coolers. News of the installation leaked and hundreds of Seongju residents, activists and members of religious sects gathered in the town center of Soseong-ri, Chojeon-myeon, near the golf course. Some 8,000 police were dispatched to the scene. They stood guard as the military trucks rolled in. Troops blocked roads to let the military vehicles pass and pushed back the residents and out-of-town protesters. Protesters held pickets and banners lambasting the Thaad deployment and calling for peace - and asking if U.S. troops were true friends of Korea.

  13. Things are moving right along... U.S. troops in South Korea began installing the equipment of an advanced missile defense system at a site in a southeastern region of the country, facing fierce protests from local residents. The overnight, unannounced operation came just six days after U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) secured the land in Seongju, North Gyeongsang Province, from the South Korean government. A joint environmental survey required under the bilateral Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) is not done yet, according to officials. The allies signed a deal last year to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system on the peninsula to help intercept North Korea's ballistic missiles. Six trailers reportedly carrying the high-profile radar of the THAAD system and other elements were seen entering the site. USFK issued no statement on the sensitive issue, but South Korea's Ministry of National Defense confirmed the start of the full-scale deployment.
