“It is hunger that makes the world move” and "an army marches on it's belly".

Most have probably heard those quotes in their lifetimes. There are conflicting reports as to who each one may or may not be attributed too. These are two truths and military leaders down through history have known this fact, felt the pangs of hunger, and then died of disease or starvation. Some saw it coming and pressed onwards only to die in a foreign land. Americans and their military leaders are no different. The U.S. Army realized early in our nation's history the value of keeping soldiers fed with calorie rich foods and a few luxuries added in the mix. This seemingly simple concept can go along way towards improving morale and combat effectiveness. Manufacturing, packaging, and distributing such rations has proved at times to be daunting logistical feat as anyone can imagine. I have always been interested in what American soldiers ate (good or bad) from the American Revolution till today. I have a very good friend who enjoys "building" authentic ration boxes, packaging, labels, etc. He makes various types of German WW2 field rations, iron rations, and specialty packages that the Germans provided to their wounded troops, Christmas treats, or sometimes a package of luxury items to take along when on furlough. My friend also makes various American WW2 rations (boxes, packages, labeling, wrapping paper, etc. ). He researches all the items and sometimes replicates the contents. Believe it or not, many  of the items that comprised wartime rations are still available today and in some cases, the manufacturer of the item is the same. Anyhow, my ration hobbyist friend sent me this well written article from  Beaches of Normandy Tours. I hope the readers find it as interesting as I.

Respected Teacher Found Shirtless And Holding A Gun In A Burning School Building


School and law enforcement officials are trying to figure out what went wrong. It sounds as if this guy has some mental issues, but then again, this sort of behavior sounds like someone on serious drugs. I'm glad the principal talked him into a peaceful outcome and no one was hurt. 

Teacher at Saks High School arrested after being accused of setting fire, having gun on school caCALHOUN COUNTY, Ala. (WBRC) - A physical education teacher at Saks High School has been arrested after authorities say he is accused of setting a fire and having a gun on campus.

Lagregory Deon Thomas, 38, was booked into the Calhoun County Jail on charges of Arson 2nd and Criminal Mischief 3rd.

The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office says the principal at Saks High School was making rounds at the school Thursday morning when he noticed smoke coming from the gym.

When the principal went inside, he found broken windows. That’s when the door opened behind him - it was Thomas who was shirtless with a pistol in his hand.WBRC was told the principal was able to get Thomas to put the handgun down and got him out of the gym because of the fire. There were no injuries during the incident.

The Sheriff says Thomas has never had any issues prior to this incident.

The Calhoun County School District said in a Facebook post about the incident, Superintendent Dr. Jose Reyes said campus security and local law enforcement were immediately contacted to investigate.

“The safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors are our top priorities,” Reyes added in the social media post.

Meanwhile... On The Fairway....









Meanwhile, In Columbus, Ohio... What the actual fuck did she say?

  First off, the comments are moderated. iykwimaityd

 As pissed off as you may be and I am with you. I find this to be so amazingly incomprehensible. Let's Discuss it like adults. 

It's only a short clip but there doesn't seem to be any excuse for someone be so fucking callous.

The father handled it extremely well.

She needs to go. Fired. Now.

 Welcome to 2023.






 By the way, I think they must be getting a lot of flak.



Meanwhile, In Westport CT...








RE: The F-35... Something is up for sure if this is any indication...


  This is gonna get really interesting.









So. True. Almost Every Morning, Except It's 5:00am At The Bunker...








‘Look at them freakin’ teeth!’ Pensacola beachgoers rescue shark that washes ashore


We had gone down to Gulf Shores, AL for a few days. The weather was nice, the gulf was warm and the roadways and campground not too crowded. I was having my coffee this morning and perusing this commie website (one has to know what the enemy may be up too) and saw this story of some Texicans visiting Pensacola, FL. According to the article the two were in the water when this shark "beached' itself (they were about 30+ miles from my location). 

Alright , which one of you in South Carolina has this in your backyard?




Not the real plane, obviously.



Military officials say they're responding to a "mishap" involving an F-35 fighter jet.


Officials say the pilot of an F-35B Lightning II ejected from the jet and landed safely, but the search is on for the now missing F-35.
