After his last heart operation, he was reported to have 20% of its normal function. No, he was not heartless as so many have speculated. Just did not have very much.

(No wonder he shots his friend in the face and is out of town before the friend is off an operating table. Even Dr Frankenstein stayed around to see if his creation was alive.)

Better show your work there, Rich. What I recall is examination of the matter boiling it down to some miscommunication of who was where. One birdshot to the cheek is more of an embarrassment than a crisis, I should think. Begging any question of "lodging under the skin and causing a nasty infection," unlikely on flameblasted metal in any case.

One should not in any case try and undercut any boogey-men we might deploy against anti-Americans' morale: Don't fuck with Americans or they might send Dick (or Lon) Chaney after you. Or they'll send Sherriff John Bunnell around to bite you a good one.

We do, after all, want the opposition to stay discouraged. We cannot get them to like us, thanks to their furious shitheadedness, so let us simply make them extinct. Or castrate.

Didn't we try to deploy Cheney against those commies in Vietnam?

Sherriff John Bunnell has become a television personality narrating Cops and World's Wildest Police Videos and suchlike shows. He is notable for a distinctive stage presence, a full head of silver hair, very white teeth, and a tendency to chew his lines through them. It can be fascinating to watch.

You know who pisses me off to no end? The other guy, who's pretending to be in a helicopter above 'the scene', giving a play-by-play. I can't watch any of those shows because of that guy. "This is extremely dangerous..."

Boogeymen, classic; boogeymen to deprive our foes of sleep.

TV has been interviewing Dick Cheney again.

When Cheney speaks, it makes me realize there are two
populations of people in the US, and I'm not in one of them !

If you have something you dislike about Cheney's proposed ideas or policies, then post them up.

Argue the facts, but stop the ad hominem attacks without any facts to back them up.

For instance, I say Obama is an ass-wipe because he shut down the WWII memorials, here, and overseas, purely to upset the older vets being brought in on Honor Flights, from around the country, as well as thousands of other visitors.

I could see it if the feds had to pay much for anything in the WWII memorial, but the upkeep is paid for by private funds.

When I hear Cheney talk, I hear a smart guy, who's very direct, and very intense. He doesn't beat around the bush like so many politicians are fond of.

I don't agree with everything he says, but I damn sure respect the guy. If you had to make an important decision on something, whose counsel would you seek out, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, or Dick Cheney?

He might be right, or wrong, but he's not going to be blowing smoke up my ass.**



** This was actually a resuscitation technique and device, used in the late 1800's. Like most politicians, it never worked.

And her obvious and blatant lie - you're actually comfortable with that?

Well, if you're living in another country, you might be OK with her!
