OK, OK, Still having trouble...

My boy was going to take a picture of both of us, but he can't find the cable for his camera...

Until I can get a recent photo I scanned an old Drivers License from my California days.
So here's a picture of Voltron when he was about half his current years...LOL

If you want to scare away the mice just click on it to enlarge, brace yourself.


So, if you want to picture what I look like now, lose the mustache and quite a bit of hair on top, and add a few more wrinkles....


Just for good measure here's my boys senior picture....


















This is from this year, good lookin kid huh?

Yalta Forward...

The following article has been submitted by freelance journalist Johnny Moo Moo...


Please allow me to expand minimally on my previous thesis regarding
Stalins backstabbing of the west in WWII and its direct link to the Vietnam and Korean Wars. I previously mentioned to Cliff that the Vietnam War was nothing more than the good intentions of the U.S to prevent itself from becoming a lonely island surrounded in a sea of communism.

Stalins deliberate betrayal of the agreements reached at the "Yalta Conference" has produced haunting ripples of political paranoia that can still be felt to this day......period!

Hell, Stalins refusal to shake Winston Churchill’s hand at the" Tehran Conference" would have been more than enough to satisfy me Stalin had nefarious designs of political domination.
................................................................................
"Roosevelt, who had not been a student of history,
or of Russia, or of Communism, like a wild gambler
based his pro-Soviet policy on a hunch. "I just have a hunch," Roosevelt told
William C. Bullitt, "that Stalin... doesn't want any-
thing but security for his country, and I think that if
I give him everything I possibly can and ask nothing
from him in return, noblesse oblige, he wouldn't try to
annex anything and will work with us for a world of
democracy and peace"

"If I can convince him," Roosevelt said to Ross McIntire when talking of Stalin, "that our offer of co-operation is on the square, and that we want to be comrades rather than enemies, I'm betting that he'll come in."

However...

................................................................................
"On February 24, 1945, in violation of the Yalta
pact -- which had been signed on February 11 -- the
U.S.S.R. indicated her unwillingness to co-operate in
the Allied Control Councils in Bulgaria, Hungary, and
Roumania, and on February 27, Andrei Y. Vishinsky,
in another violation of the Yalta pact, insisted by an
official demarche that King Michael of Roumania sub-
stitute Communists and Communist tools for certain
members of his cabinet."

"Stalin promised free elections in Poland, notwithstanding the recently installed Communist puppet government. However, it soon became apparent that Stalin had no intentions of holding true to his promise of free elections. The elections, which were held in January 1947 and resulted in the official transformation of Poland into a socialist state by 1949, were widely considered rigged in favour of communist parties."

"Roosevelt met Stalin's price, hoping that the USSR could be dealt with through the U.N. Some Americans later considered Yalta to be a 'sellout,' because it encouraged the Soviets to expand their influence into Japan and Asia and also because Stalin eventually violated the terms by forming the Soviet bloc."
................................................................................
Cliff has previously retorted that the US backed Diem up instead of backing free elections in Vietnam. BIG DEAL! Imagine that......... Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles imposing the same sneaky tactics that Stalin (murderer of millions) kindly bestowed upon the west which ultimately formed a paralyzing suspicion(McCarthyism if you will) that negotiating with communists, despite the most sincere intentions of peace, inevitably leads to betrayal!

In other words, the democrats failed miserably; the Yalta Conference is 100% proof of this! I do not consider decades of Cold War and constant fear of nuclear war political achievements.

"President Eisenhower and particularly Secretary of State Dulles were determined to prevent this. Hanoi, they believed, would become Communist China's gateway to South-east Asia, and South Vietnam had to be given every chance to develop independently or the small nation would topple like dominoes."

Not signing the Geneva Accord's was clearly the honorable intention of the U.S. to politically combat Ho Chi Minh's effective brainwashing over his people, thus ensuring himself a communist victory and marking another defeat for humanity’s right to freedom. Do we really sit by while democracy shrinks? I think not! Naive, yet, genuine negotiation completely failed.......period!

While not infallible, I believe the U.S. deserves more credit in its efforts to promote global stability despite the blunders of the current administration. And, to those intellectually lazy morons who like to compare republicans to Nazi’s...........

Editors notes:
Stalin was Time magazines "Man of the Year" in 1939 AND 1942

After the release of "The Venona Papers" in 1999 we now know that McCarthy was correct, and the Democrats were simply covering for their communist pals.

Goodbye Vickie Lynn...

We hardly knew ye...










Of course there was very little left to know.

This passing however, leaves liberals in a conundrum.

On the one hand, having only two functioning
brain cells, this bimbo represented the
"trailer park" mentality they in their oh so
erudite ramblings so despise.

On the other, she lived the lifestyle they represent.
Upward mobility by hook or crook, morals of an alleycat, and a lifestyle that paid no regard to who got hurt. (after all, "judge not!" right?)


















The truly sad part is that the damage
is not yet over. There is still a little girl
whose paternity is in question, and will
grow up without a mother and will probably have
huge therapist bills.
