He certanly wasn't...
If the government does it, that means it's not illegal.
He's a boy scout compared to obama.
In a few years, calling someone a boy scout will be meaningless. No one will know what it is referring to.

Loyal and friendly are missing
And Nixon loved his country, unlike . . .
Watergate was a dumb, bungled burglary, followed by an even dumber coverup, led by a guy smart enough to know better. Voted for him in '72, but no sympathy afterwards. Hubris prevailed.
Actors are bad role models:
They are a group of people who generally are very poorly educated (most having a high school diploma and thats it, quite a few not even having that).Their entire career aspirations (for there are many more wanna-be actors than actual actors working) is to:
Recite someone else's (the writers) words, while;
wearing someone else's (wardrobe department) clothes;
around someone else's (the prop department) stuff;
after having someone else put makeup on them,;
and do it all with someone else's (the directors) emotions.....
Not an original thought,deed or action in there...
It's like how I don't trust journalists because they snitch on people for money.
Read someplace that in ?Greece? back in time actors were not allowed to vote as they were considered to be professional lairs.
Wait!! You're ignoring John Wayne, Clint Eastwood....
Add to that the motivations usually behind their career aspirations - vanity and the need for attention.
A vain person constantly seeking affirmation from popularity makes for a poor role model indeed.
That was then, when movies were new. People were glued to every word Walter Cronkite said when TV was new, too. Now there are thousands of movies and TV shows, and anybody can make movies or broadcast the news with their phone.
In other words, I don't think it has quite the same impact it used to have.
This is nothing new. The von Trapp family actually left Austria in 1938.
The average IQ is 100. 49.9% have less than that.
In centuries past, actors were treated as being on the same moral level as whores. Clearly the West was wiser back then.
That's right. In Shakespeare's time,actors could not be buried in consecrated ground.
They have a stronger union now.
This morning I lucked out and was able to buy two boxes of ammo.
I placed the boxes on the front seat and headed back home, but stopped at a gas station where a drop-dead gorgeous blonde in a short skirt was filling up her car at the next pump.
She glanced at the two boxes of ammo, bent over and leaned in my passenger window, and said in a sexy voice, "I'm a big believer in barter, old fella. Would you be interested in trading sex for ammo?"
I thought for a few seconds and asked, "What kind of ammo 'ya got?"
"What kind of pistol you packing?"
Dinner with lifelong friends tonight. The gray-haired woman across from me had ebony waistlength hair when I first met her studying for our AP History exam in high school. Since then we've stood up as maid/matron of honor at each of our weddings, seen the loss of family and friends, the birth of children and the events in their lives, the birth of grandchildren. Surgeries and illness, disasters, adventures, and vacations in far away places (sometimes all at the same time). We once accidentally shut down the floor show of a little intercoastal bar in Ft. Lauderdale called Dirty Nellies. Don't ask. Walked down a ski slope in Canada, 7 miles. Don't ask. Played hooky so we could send off some sailors on the HMS Hermes - she got caught I didn't. But her mother called mine, so I didn't completely escape. We nearly were arrested for singing a rather bad version of "Thank God I'm a Country Boy", and we've held each other up no matter what during life's struggles with the bond that life brings to those who love for the sake of loyalty… and copious blackmail material. :-)
The best of friends are those who know all about you, and still like you.
Thank you for sharing. You and your friend sound wonderful. G-d bless.
Your friends know all your stories. Your BFF was there when they happened. Me and mine go back 53 years. Her kids swear they'll get it all out of me one way or the other one of these days. Never happen. They have to do their own stories
Best friends do stick together!
love that saying, those are all my friends.
So about that whole HMS Hermes thing....
There was a Dirty Nelly's pub in Ireland in '77 when I was there as a teen! (Or "Durty"?)
Today's progress: https://uploads.disquscdn.c...
oh that's gorgeous!
That was fast. Maniac is right.
That's a really realistic painting but don't things like that usually go up last??
D'oh!! You made me look!
Hmmm . . . I like that floor.
I'm pretty happy with it (89¢/sq ft!). I still have a section to do, but that has to wait until I can get to the store and buy some new blades for my knife. I lost the spares I had and need to make some fairly complicated cuts on the underlayment, which seems like a bad idea with a dull knife.
Cutting *anything* with a dull knife is a bad idea.
Umm, I'm going to hang some drapes today, does that count?
Real wood or laminate?
Laminate. I decided there wasn't much reason to go with real wood since it costs so much more and the laminate looks just as nice.
Honestly like the laminate better. Even more so in the picture of today's progress. Nice work lady. How is the Jeep coming?
Thanks! Haven't been able to pick the truck up yet. Part of trying to get the room finished is clearing some boxes out of my garage that are filled with books so I actually have room for it. Still need to acquire a few tools as well. So many things to do.
