10. Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

11. Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

13. I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

14. A sign on the lawn at a drug rehab center said, “Keep off the Grass.”

15. The midget fortune-teller who escaped from prison was a small medium at large.

16. The soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran.

17. A backward poet writes inverse.

19. When cannibals ate a missionary, they got a taste of religion.

20. If you jumped off the bridge in Paris, you’d be in Seine .

21. A vulture boards an airplane carrying two dead raccoons. The stewardess looks at him and says, “I’m sorry, sir, only one carrion allowed per passenger.”

22. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. One turns to the other and says, “Dam!”

23. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can’t have your kayak and heat it too.

24. Two hydrogen atoms meet. One said, “I’ve lost my electron.” The other said, “Are you sure?” The first replied, “Yes, I’m positive.”

25. There was the person who sent ten puns to friends in the hope at least one of the puns would make one laugh. No pun in ten did.

    157 Air Force Majors terminated without retirement benefits By Thomas Lifson – November 26, 2011

    • I started to comment on this yesterday, but got distracted. This entire thing is being blown out of proportion. The article at American Thinker is even more biased than the original article, which can be found here:
      http://dailycaller.com/2011/11/25/military-advocates-decry-illegal-early-terminations-of-157-air-force-majors/

      I’ve already responded to that article elsewhere, and don’t want to get into it all over again, but this reminds me of the incident with the reservists who had to “pay for their baggage,” when, in actuality, they were being reimbursed for their travel by the military. That’s standard operating procedure. The articles are designed to stir up sentiment (appeal to emotion?) and to be tried in the court of public opinion. The problem in both instances is that a lot of information is presented incorrectly or left out entirely.

      We can’t blame Obama and his administration when Congress is the one who authorizes personnel cutbacks and the DoD instruction in question was last updated under Bush. The officers in question had been passed over twice already for promotion, prior to being subjected to a selection board to determine who, if anyone, would be retained. They’re not receiving retirement benefits just like anyone else who falls short of 20 years of service.

      Hubby will be in their exact shoes very shortly. We’ve been discussing for over three years now what we’ll do if he doesn’t get picked up for promotion (over the next few years) and, if that happens, what the chances are that he’ll be kicked out. They should have planned ahead for this. It should not be a surprise to them at this point in time. It will suck majorly (no pun intended) if he doesn’t get his retirement like we have been planning, but that’s why we’re thinking about it now and considering our options.

      I have very little sympathy for them, because they are like the OWS whiners of the military. I know that, in general, people have a tendency to hold military members in very high regard, because of their service, but not everyone in the military is an angel. They have their fair share of whiners and slackers, too.

      After reviewing the details of the situation and the specifc DoD instruction in question, the only people they are making look bad, in my opinion, are themselves. It will be sad if the DoD flops on this one like they did with the Delta Airlines scenario.

        • They might have had me at, “It sucks that we’re getting kicked out and missing out on our opportunity to earn our retirement,” because I can relate to that very sentiment and I don’t necessarily agree with cutting back the forces. However, they lost me at, “This is illegal and we’re going to file a lawsuit.”

        Got another “horse’s mouth” comment on these whiners:

        “Chrissy,

        As a retired Army vet with 32 years of service, I can relate (especially as I retired as a Major myself). However, unlike these Majors, I saw the writing on the wall as a Captain. I watched as several Army Majors were passed over for promotion and discharged. But unlike these majors, I asked the simple question, why were they passed over for promotion? The answer, they weren’t flexible enough to stay current with military needs. As a result, I am an Infantry officer, who is also branch qualified as an Ordnance Officer with Aviation, Signal, and Quartermaster experience.

        Almost every Major that I know of who has been passed over for promotion, has been a “single track” career specialist. As the military downsizes (right-sizes for the new mission and economy), it is essential that our leadership remain flexible enough to fill whatever roles are necessary. If you only know how to do one thing and that thing is no longer needed, you are obsolete. That is an individual responsibility, not the service. Sorry, but I entered as a high school drop-out and retired as a Major. Do you really think they didn’t look damn close at my records when it came time for a promotion board?

        Every military officer regardless of branch, is taught about career progression. Shame on them if they didn’t keep up their end of the bargain.

        • This is very well written. After 32 years, he certainly knows what he’s talking about! There are so many details that go into this story, I could write for pages. One thing that some people may not realize is that as you go up in rank, there are fewer and fewer positions available. So, there’s sort of a natural downsizing process as people choose to get out. In our current economic situation, however, you’ll see a lot more people choosing to stay in. Under these conditions, they need to make extra cuts just to maintain the normal size, let alone downsize the forces. In the DC article, they mention an article published last December in the Air Force times, announcing that these cuts were coming. Just one more reason they should have seen this coming. We take all of these things into consideration every time hubby is detailing his next assignment. Even if we make smart choices, we know that there are no guarantees. I hope he can stay in as long as he chooses, but we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, can we talk about getting rid of automatic pensions for Congress? If the military has to stay in for 20 to earn theirs, politicians certainly shouldn’t be able to get it after one term.

  2. What A Hoot

    Is this reality/true and any links for further reading/learning?
    “The Freedom Group? Sounds as benign as the Patriot Act.
    FYI
    For the last several years a company called “The Freedom Group” has been buying up American gun and ammunition manufacturers.

    Some of these companies are: Bushmaster, Marlin, Remington, DPMS, Dakota Arms and H&R.DPMS Panther Arms NEF Dakota Arms, LCSmithParker, AAC, Barnes Bullets, EOTACINTC. Some people worry that Freedom Group is going to control most of the firearms companies in the United States.

    Of course, If you control the manufacturers you can decide not to sell to civilians, or, you can raise the prices to ridiculous levels or you can make the supply of guns and ammo scarce – all sorts of logjams. What a perfect way to control America’s guns!

    If you do some digging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a Wall Street investment company called “Cerberus Capital Management”. “Cerberus” in the epic book “The Inferno” by Dante Alighieri, is a three-headed demon hound (from Roman mythology) that guards the Gates of Hell to prevent those damned souls who have just crossed the river Styx, from escaping back to the world.

    Investor GEORGE SOROS owns Cerberus! Please pass this on to all your freedom loving friends. This needs to come out – and quickly! Why have we not heard about this in the “mainstream” media? I would think this would be BIG news. The absence of big media coverage on this important subject should be BIG news to you, too!”
