(I wish I could do that embed thing with the top photo in case anyone doesn’t want to read the whole article.)
That gave me a chuckle. No chain guard. It’s life on the edge!
I think there actually is an official Putin calender. Moreover I am beginning to have doubts about your taste. So your perfect night in would be watching the Star Wars prequels (special editions) with Vlad Putin and maybe a cheeky Merlot and some nibbles. Get a grip woman!
Sarah is not Ronnie with lipstick. Palin would like to be and fair play to her for that but she just ain’t no Gipper. The only thing they really have in common is an ability to connect with the working class. Oh and they both worked in sports broadcasting.
Just like Blair was Thatcher’s.
You’re right about Sarah but, Gawd help us, she’s the closest we’ve got right now.
How the Mighty have fallen!
Pantywaist Barry Obama: fellow traveler; would-be ‘protector’; righter of wrongs…paints a poor picture on that bike with his sissy helmet - surely, he could have bestrode a Harley?
He would only rid a Harley in Wisconsin - as campaign thing. Just as he wore Green Bay Packers stuff up in Wisconsin (inspite of supposedly being a Chicago fan) - but of course it is “racist” to ask Barack Obama any questions about American Football (even though he claims to be a fan, wears team colors and so on).
Reagan loved horse riding - it was not a political thing or even acting thing with him (after all he carried on riding when he had moved first into Screen Actors Guild administation and then in his General Electric years).
By the way Ronald Reagan always did what he believed in - even if might have been terrible for him.
For example, when Reagan’s acting career went into decline (partly because he went off to make United States Army Airforce training films for years - Reagan was a blind as a bat, he did not have to be in the military at all, but he DEMANDED some military service) Ronald Reagan went to work for General Electric - giving talks and presenting their sponsed theatre show on television.
But with the change in top management at G.E. the new bosses demanded that he stopped saying what he wanted to say, and just concentrate on selling General Electric products instead.
Reagan said “no” - and he got fired.
Think about that - a middle aged man, who knows his acting career is washed up. Throwing away a highly paid job.
That takes guts - the sort of old fashioned grit that Comrade Barack just does not have.
Counting Cats (CC) was taken to task by several other commenters for being too squeamish and perhaps even morally neutral about who are the good guys and who are the bad guys here. While I don't share CC's reaction to the video, I rejoice in his (her?) existence. What kind of a world would it be if people like CC didn't exist or if they had to hide their views? Who knows, we might all be living in something akin to Somalia.
CC's civilized response is precisely why our military is a force for good in the world.
