Obama’s screwed the Vets, again!

Once more the Prez does it to us Vets/Military/America!  Reading this from TheRightScoop.Com has got me so pissed mad that I won’t bother interpreting it, I send you to his link directly and you can read about it there.  Here’s the link:  http://www.therightscoop.com/obama-calls-about-michael-vick-but-wont-call-fallen-soliders-family

Merry Christmas from Tiger Valley

Those of you who believe in the Second amendment as do I, will enjoy this beautiful girl walking out late at night, and alone. Now you guess what will happen . . . surprise! The video is here. Oh and a link to Tiger Valley is here. Tiger Valley is a premier firearms training facility that is on a 168 acre site conveniently in Central Texas for those looking to further their education in firearms. Enjoy the video, I did!

Washington puts Veteran’s in “the back of the bus”!

Watch this video in which Medal Of Honor recipient SSgt Sal Giunta receives his award, listen to the narrator Michael Berry tell you where first, the congressmen were placed and then where they put SSgt Giunta’s family as well as his fellow veterans and their families.  Looks to me like they were buried “in back” for a purpose!  Could it be he doesn’t want to soil his hands by shaking the hands of these honorable young men?  Or is it more than likely that the congressmen put them to the back so that they could do a little “a– kissing” to the prez.  I think it’s the latter. 

Now we know what the prez and his cronies really think of us vets.  Not much!  Something to be taken advantage of, used up, then discarded like the rest of the trash.  Come 2012, they will learn the hard way!

How hot’s the water?

Wanda asked me, “How do I know what temperature the water-heater is set at, when all it says on the thermostat is “A”, “B” or “C”?

My Answer:  Wanda, my gas water-heater thermostat’s settings are identified in the same way.  There are also others identified only with “Low”, “Med” or “High” instead of an actual temperature (in degrees) setting. So how do you tell?  Pick the faucet or bathing facility that is the farthest from the water-heater in your home and turn it on to the “full hot only” position.  If you don’t know which faucet this is then turn on the one centrally located in your home.  Next, let the water run until it won’t get any hotter to your touch, then hold the end of a thermometer in the water’s flow until the temperature won’t rise any longer. 

That is your water temperature setting or at least close enough to allow you to adjust the temperature to the proper 120-125 degrees in your home.  As to the thermometer, you can use a candy or even a meat thermometer as they will readily read in the temperature range necessary to make your adjustments.  By the way, most mercury “wall thermometers” aren’t very accurate at the higher temps so skip using them.  Adjust your thermostat(s) ever so slightly over a period of days until your water temperature is where you want it to be.  Why days?  Because unless you go through large quantities of hot water regularly, it will take an extended period for the water-heater to readjust to the new setting.

As a last hint, once you have the thermostat set to the temperature you’re happy with, make a small mark on the thermostat dial next to the arrow with a bright-colored or white latex paint, fingernail polish or the like.  Then you will always know at a glance what the temperature on your water-heater is set to.  Hope this answers your question. And thanks.

Are you serious ref?

That’s what I said when I first saw this video.  Enough already people!!  A fifteen-yard penalty for gesturing to God!  The theophobia in this nation is getting to be extreme, at the least!  If it isn’t enough that the media and others berate us for prayer or for saying “Lord Almighty” outside our home, now they’ve even crept into our national sport! 

What is wrong with this nation can be much remedied with a little religion.  After all, that’s what this great nation was built on. Just because a certain liberal leader in the head office wants to turn us away from religion in pursuit of his socialistic ideals, doesn’t mean everyone has to kowtow to his beliefs!  Like it or not, I still pray!  And will until the day He calls for me!
