After Sending ‘Message To America’
As a sniper, I was trained to go into a dangerous area, collect reconnaissance, and get out without ever being seen. This is the hardest part of the job. Most people think it’s all about shooting from really far away, and while that’s certainly an important skill, it’s not the most difficult. Staying virtually invisible, while moving from point to point with 75+ pounds of gear in extreme weather, while being completely exhausted, requires a tremendous amount of focus. The fatigue, the discomfort, the racing thoughts are all distractions that can throw off your focus and your cloak of invisibility that keeps you alive.His instructors taught him a simple trick, one he uses today in business and in his personal life -- SLLS: Stop, Look, Listen, and Smell.
When the heat, weight, and fatigue take your focus off moving in silence and invisibility, take a SLLS break—Stop what you are doing. Look around. Listen to your surroundings. Smell your environment.He suggests that you get started by setting the alarm on your phone to remind you every two hours to take an SLLS break.

I’m already one of those people who rinse my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher because I hate the idea that they won’t be fully clean afterwards. So I can only imagine how bad it will be if this absurd example of red tape is imposed and I have to buy a new dishwasher. I guess I’ll just keep my fingers crossed that my current dishwasher doesn’t break down. Especially since the rules make new dishwashers more expensive.What about your shower head?

|You must remember this.|
Thucydides (460 - 400 BC) was an Athenian historian, political philosopher and general. That Thucydides was clearly moved by the suffering inherent in war and concerned about the excesses to which human nature is prone in such circumstances is evident in his analysis of the atrocities committed during civil conflict on Corcyra.“Self-respect is the root of discipline: The sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself.” ~ Abraham Joshua Heschel
Heschel (1907 - 1972) was a Polish-born American rabbi and one of the leading Jewish theologians and Jewish philosophers of the 20th century. The Gestapo arrested him in Frankfurt and deported him. They murdered his mother, and two of his sisters died in concentration camps.The more things change ...

“There’s more and more evidence emerging that shows that not all fats are bad for us,” said Stephanie Venn-Watson, lead study author. “We’re not saying go eat spoonfuls of butter, but this could show that we’re not getting the levels of C-17 that we’re used to.”Okay, I'll say it: have yourself some butter (the real stuff).

“Now, let me be honest with you. I do not understand this. I am in my second term. I love my work. But under our Constitution, I cannot run again.When has this man ever been hindered by the law? Is he hinting at his next dazzling move?
“I actually think I’m a pretty good president. I think if I ran, I could win. But I can’t. So there’s a lot that I’d like to do to keep America moving, but the law is the law.”
I wish I had a nickel for every time some popular man of the Cult gave a speech making claims that were obviously false. Even allowing for personal bias and perspective, Progressives often say things that are completely insane. Obama’s nomination speech is an obvious example:I would rather not live in interesting times.
"Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth."When hearing that, normal people wondered how he and his audience did not burst out laughing. Political hyperbole is to be expected, particularly after a big election, but that’s the sort of thing that used to get people committed. Did he really believe his election would alter the earth’s climate? Found a new nation in place of the current one? Is it possible for one man to be full of so much shit?
