And just why do you want to "arm the homeless"?
<quoted text>
But why do YOU use that term? I have no problem with homeless people being armed as they have the right to protect themselves but I am sick and tired of giving poor people things that they will just hock to get money for their drugs, booze, etc.
I will respond to this when I am done today.

Presently, I want to tell you a story. I came across it last night and thought it was up your alley. 100% non-fiction.

It concerns 1st Lieutenant Harold Fisher. It was World War II and he was on his 20th bombing mission... limping back from Italy.

His B-17 "Bonnie Sue" was barely flyable. Two engines were gone, and he was seriously considering ditching the plane. He had the crew throw everything out: guns, ammo, flak jackets, anything that could decrease the weight of the aircraft, hoping to stay up long enough for a miracle.

And they appeared to get just that! An American P-38 fighter came by to cover him. Harold radioed him asking for assistance, and his new best friend on Earth pulled alongside to escort him home.

A few moments later... Fisher was shot down by the very P-38 that was supposed to be covering him.

Instead of an American pilot behind the controls, this particular P-38 was piloted by Guido Rossi an Italian pilot who had captured it on the ground.

Fisher attempted a water landing with his B-17 and... as far as water landings go, it was pretty successful. Translation: Every single person on board wasn't killed. Fisher survived the landing and was picked up by the British.

He soon learned he wasn't Rossi's only victim.

Fisher went to his commander, and asked permission to borrow an experimental YB-40 aircraft. A YB-40 was essentially a B-17 with the bombs taken out and a ridiculous amount of guns added.

There were no YB-40s in Africa, so they had the Brits fly one out there, for the sole purpose of taking down Rossi.

After hand-picking a crew... Fisher went out in search of Rossi, with no success. Rossi was still off somewhere in his undercover plane, pulling this stunt on every B-17 he could find.

Fisher wasn't going to give up. He dug through intelligence documents and found something interesting....

Rossi's wife, Gina, was located behind friendly lines. Fisher swiftly pulled some recon. After seeing what she looked like, Fisher got a painter to paint a picture of her on his shiny new YB-40 and put her name on it. All just so he could piss off Rossi even more when he shot him down.

On the next bombing mission, Fisher was getting ready to become a pretend straggler again when he all of a sudden was shot and became an actual straggler...go figure.

After ordering his crew to dump everything except for ammunition, they flew on. Soon enough a P-38 pulled up alongside, but they couldn't tell if it was Rossi or not. Thinking this time it was a legitimate P-38, he ordered ammunition dumped overboard as well, until a curious question came across the radio.

"Pretty girl, Gina. She from Constantine?"

Fisher ordered his men to keep their ammunition and guns and carried on with his conversation with the P-38 pilot, regaling him with stories about how awesome it was to be nailing Mrs. Rossi.

Naturally, Rossi wasn't real happy at the moment. He flew far ahead of the bomber and attempted a total F.U. head-on attack.

Waiting until the last minute, Fisher ordered every gun on board his aircraft to fire on the P-38, which was literally shredded away around Rossi from the massive amount of gunfire.

Rossi was picked up by Allied Rescue crews and became a POW for the rest of the war. Meanwhile, Fisher was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.

Dear Senator Harkin,

As a native Iowan and excellent customer of the Internal Revenue Service, I am writing to ask for your assistance. I have contacted the Department of Homeland Security in an effort to determine the process for becoming an illegal alien and they referred me to you.

My primary reason for wishing to change my status from U.S. Citizen to illegal alien stems from the bill which was recently passed by the Senate and for which you voted. If my understanding of this bill is accurate, as an illegal alien who has been in the United States for five years, all I need to do to become a citizen is to pay a $2,000 fine and income taxes for only three of the last five years. I know a good deal when I see one and I am anxious to get the process started before everyone figures it out.

Simply put, those of us who have been here legally have had to pay taxes every year so I'm excited about the prospect of avoiding two years of taxes in return for paying a $2,000 fine. Is there any way that I can apply to be illegal retroactively? This would yield an excellent result for me and my family because we paid heavy taxes in 2008 and 2009.

Additionally, as an illegal alien I could begin using the local emergency room as my primary health care provider. Once I have stopped paying premiums for medical insurance, my accountant figures I could save almost $10,000 a year.

Another benefit in gaining illegal status would be that my daughter would receive preferential treatment relative to her law school applications, as well as 'in-state' tuition rates for many colleges throughout the United States for my son.

Lastly, I understand that illegal status would relieve me of the burden of renewing my driver's license and making those burdensome car insurance premiums. This is very important to me, given that I still have college age children driving my car.

If you would provide me with an outline of the process to become illegal (retroactively if possible) and copies of the necessary forms, I would be most appreciative. Thank you for your assistance

Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.

Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy, the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.

Göring: Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

WASHINGTON -- President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution.

Among the laws Bush said he can ignore are military rules and regulations, affirmative-action provisions, requirements that Congress be told about immigration services problems,''whistle-blower " protections for nuclear regulatory officials, and safeguards against political interference in federally funded research.

Knocking on Heaven's Door
When most people think about God, they picture a grumpy old man in the sky handing out impossible rules and smiting people. It’s not often that we have the opportunity to see God as the inventor of humor and a connoisseur of friendship. Knocking on Heaven’s Door explores the relationship between a little boy named Spencer and his best friend—God. This collection of comic strips (with behind-the-scenes notes from writer/comedian Tommy Blaze and artist Nate Fakes), is equally whimsical and profound. As Blaze puts it:
"If Knocking on Heaven’s Door is about anything, it’s about our relationship with God and the understanding that He wants to be included in our everyday lives, no matter how seemingly trivial or insipid.... How could Spencer truly have a personal relationship with an omnipotent being so clearly superior to him? The answer is in the question. God can do anything He wants, which includes empathizing with a little kid and really getting down on his level."

Libby judge 'perplexed' by clemency
His 30-month sentence was appropriate for the former Cheney aide, he writes in his first public comments on the issue.
July 13, 2007 / http://tinyurl.com/3ds8xvn
WASHINGTON — In an unusual expression of frustration, the judge who sentenced former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby to 30 months in jail, only to see the sentence commuted by President Bush, said he was "perplexed" by the act of clemency.

In his first public comments on the matter, U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton took issue with Bush's statement that the prison sentence ordered for Libby last month was "excessive." Walton defended the sentence, saying that he followed established legal precedents as well as a strict interpretation of federal sentencing guidelines that has been supported by Bush's own administration.

Right now best estimate is bottleneck of ~10,000 ca ., 70,000 years ago. With at least one allele having most recent common ancestor (MRCA) at 60,000 years ago that leaves both Adam and Noah out of contention for extreme bottleneck patriarch status.

Oh, there was another "B-40" but is was actually a P-40 rigged to carry a 1,000 pound bomb. They were used in Burma! I met a guy who flew P-40s, P-47s and P-38s in India and did B-29 escort missions in P-38s from China to Japan.
The 80th Fighter Group in particular used its so-called B-40 (P-40s carrying 1,000-pound high explosive bombs) to destroy Japanese-held bridges and kill bridge repair crews, sometimes demolishing their target with a single bomb.

The comedian George Gobel did the same in the AAF. Pick up the video at 6:55.
