And a lot of people do not know this either. In September 1944 LT G.H.W. Bush was shot down near Chi chi Jima (about 100 miles north of Iwo Jima). Eight others also bailed out of their planes but only Bush was able to be picked up by a U.S. submarine. The eight who were captures were executed and .... eaten!
While Bush-41 was president James Bradley found the transcripts of the trials and realized that Bush was the only survivor and wrote a book about it. He did not finish his book until after Bush left office and then he contacted him asking for a forward for his book. Bush was unaware what had happened to the others. Just think if the submarine was not able to pick him up.

I'm well aware of GHB's Pacific adventure. Gutsy, brave man. But...

1. I was not aware that some of the flyers were captured and executed. Do you have any reference on that? And so they were eaten. Grateful for reference on THAT one;

2. Yes, GHB was fortunate to be rescued by a submarine. But thn you pose the rhetorical question, "Just think if the submarine was not able to pick him up." Well, Rogue, you would'nt have had GWB and probably no Iraq, no Afghanistan, no huge recession. Yes, just think if there had been no submarine...

Flyboys: A True Story of Courage
by writer James Bradley
Nine crewmen survived after being shot down in the raids. One was picked up by the American submarine USS Finback. His name was Lieutenant George H. W. Bush, who later became the forty-first President of the United States. The others were captured by the Japanese and were executed and partially eaten as POWs, a fact that remained hidden until much later. The names of Flyboys were Jimmy Dye from Mount Ephraim, New Jersey, Floyd Hall from Sedalia, Missouri, Marve Mershon from Los Angeles, California, Warren Earl Vaughn from Childress, Texas, Dick Woellhof from Clay Center, Kansas Grady York from Jacksonville, Florida, Glenn Frazier from Athol, Kansas, and the Unidentified Airman, who was revealed to Bradley as Warren Hindenlang of Foxboro, Massachusetts after the publication of the hardcover edition.

IQ tests

Main article: Intelligence quotient

One usage of the noun "genius" is closely related to the general concept of intelligence. One currently accepted way of attempting to measure one's intelligence is with an IQ test. The label of "genius" for persons of high IQ was popularized by Lewis Terman. He and his colleague Leta Hollingworth suggested different scores as a cut-off for genius in psychometric terms. Terman considered it to be an IQ of 140 on the Stanford Binet, while Hollingworth put it at an IQ of 180.

In addition to the fundamental criticism that intelligence measured in this way is an example of reification and ranking fallacies,[9] the IQ test has also been criticized as having a "cultural bias" in its interpretation despite assurances that these tests are designed to eliminate test bias.[citation needed

Lawsuit on GA emissions dismissed
March 31, 2013 by General Aviation News Staff 3 Comments
The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia court has dismissed a lawsuit by environmentalist group Friends of the Earth pushing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to decide whether lead emissions from general aviation aircraft endanger public health and welfare. The court said the issue is not one that it can take up under a provision of the Clean Air Act allowing “citizen suits.”

The ruling has freed the EPA from having to “make an accelerated endangerment finding” on emissions from general aviation aircraft, officials with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association said.

“This ruling will help to ensure that efforts to find an unleaded replacement fuel will continue in a manner that will guarantee aviation safety,” AOPA officials said in a statement released March 29.

Most wasted money on wildlife research.

There is a new very important government study
on just how intelligent crows are.
The state of California found about 200 dead
crows on its highways, and there was concern
that they may have died from Avian Flu. They
had a Bird Pathologist examined the remains of
all the crows, and he confirmed the problem
was definitely NOT Avian Flu, to everyone's relief.

However, he determined that 98% of the crows
had been killed by impact with trucks, and only
2% were killed by car impact.

The State of California then hired an Ornithological
Behaviorist to determine the disproportionate
percentages for truck versus car kill. The
Ornithological Behaviorist determined the cause
in short order.

When crows eat road kill, they always set-up a
look-out Crow in a nearby tree to warn of
impending danger. His conclusion was that the
lookout crow could say "Cah," but he could not
say "Truck."

Was Ashley Judd sabotaged by rival Democrats?
Ashley Judd was forced out of the Kentucky Senate race by Democrats, says an adviser. But, in many ways, the charges he makes sound a lot like typical, sharp-elbowed politics.

By Peter Grier | Christian Science Monitor – 1 hr 35 mins ago

Was Ashley Judd’s Kentucky Senate bid undone by rival Democrats? That’s the charge Judd adviser Jonathan Miller is making today in a piece on The Daily Beast.
Mr. Miller, a former Kentucky state treasurer, writes that Democratic supporters of current Kentucky secretary of state Alison Lundergan Grimes kept up a steady stream of sniping at Ms. Judd via a credulous national mainstream media. Furthermore, some unnamed Democrat circulated a false report that Judd, at a private Louisville dinner, said “I have been raped twice, so I think I can handle Mitch McConnell.”
“I was at that dinner and never heard her say anything remotely like that,” writes Miller.

Earlier this year Dr. Carson addressed the National Prayer Breakfast where he talked about economic without attacking anyone. Now at an Easter service in which Obama attended the priest bashed the the "captains of the religious right". There was a big howl about Dr. Carson yet none about Re. Leon. Can you say hypocrite.
Now, before you bash me, show us what Dr. Ben Carson said at the Prayer Breakfast that attacked anyone!

Obama Attends Easter Service With Family
By By STACY A. ANDERSON 03/31/13

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama attended Easter services at an Episcopal church near the White House and heard a sermon that criticized "captains of the religious right" for holding some people back.

The sermon by Rev. Dr. Luis Leon at St. John's Church was based on the Gospel of John and the resurrection of Jesus. Leon said Jesus told Mary not to hold on to the past – "You cannot go back" – and the reverend said the religious right should focus on "the way things can be in the now."

"It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back ... for blacks to be back in the back of the bus ... for women to be back in the kitchen ... for immigrants to be on their side of the border," Leon said. He said the message of Easter was about the "proclamation of victory, the victory of powerful love over loveless power."

Exclusive: Illegal Border Crossings Double as Beltway Gets Close to Deal on Immigration Reform
Katie Pavlich - News Editor, Townhall

As the immigration reform Gang of Eight inside the Beltway prepares to announce a deal later this week, claiming border security will come before a path to citizenship for millions of illegals, Border Patrol agents have seen illegal border crossings double and warn the cutting of agent work hours will only result in less border security, not more.

"We've seen the number of illegal aliens double, maybe even triple since amnesty talk started happening," an agent told Townhall, who asked to remain unnamed due to fears of retaliation within Customs and Border Protection [CBP], something he said is common. "A lot of these people, although not the majority, are criminals or aggravated felons. This is a direct danger to our communities."

I keep hearing from you Libtards that Obama has deported more illegal aliens than Bush did. If that is the case, why are there over a half-million illegal aliens with deportation orders who are still here?
You see, Libtards equate deportation orders with actual being deported. The difference is that the one who have deportation orders,,,,, are still on this side of the border!!!

Several points here. The Democrats took over Congress in 2007 and they railroaded Obamacare through. They could have done the same by cutting off funding for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan .... but they did not! WHY? I know why but you will not accept my answer.
Then, have you ever heard of the War Powers Act of 1973? You Dems railroaded it through Congress!!!
And then there is why did not Obama keep his promis to get out of both of those countries in the first year he was in office???

Hey Poopo, in 2002 the Congress make up was in the Senate 50 Reps., 48 Dems and one Ind. And in the House 223 Reps. and 208 Dems. There is no way they could have gotten a 77-23 vote in te Senate without at lease 27 Dems. voting Yea. And they could not have gotten a 296/133 without at lease 73 Dems vote Yea.

Senate approves Iraq war resolution
Administration applauds vote

Friday, October 11, 2002

WASHINGTON (CNN)-- In a major victory for the White House, the Senate early Friday voted 77-23 to authorize President Bush to attack Iraq if Saddam Hussein refuses to give up weapons of mass destruction as required by U.N. resolutions.

Hours earlier, the House approved an identical resolution, 296-133.

Ah, we declared war on Mexico!!!
Declaration of war
Polk received word of the Thornton Affair, which, added to the Mexican government's rejection of Slidell, Polk believed, constituted a casus belli (cause for war).[25] His message to Congress on May 11, 1846, stated that "Mexico has passed the boundary of the United States, has invaded our territory and shed American blood upon American soil."[26][27] Congress approved the declaration of war on May 13, with southern Democrats in strong support. Sixty-seven Whigs voted against the war on a key slavery amendment,[28] but on the final passage only 14 Whigs voted no,[28] including Rep. John Quincy Adams. Congress declared war on Mexico on May 13, 1846, after only having a few hours to debate. Although President Paredes's issuance of a manifesto on May 23 is sometimes considered the declaration of war, Mexico officially declared war by Congress on July 7.
