Just shaking my head

As I sit here I really didn’t know what the title should be. I’m waiting to go to work looking through the news articles to read bull shit.

One article reads Ozzy Osborne is leaving America. In the article it says he is tired of the mass shootings. He is selling his house in California for 18 million dollars. Not two months ago he stated he was leaving California do you high taxes. We’ll I wonder if hiring 87000 IRS agents had anything to do with him wanting to go back to England. If he really is leaving from all of the mass shootings, I ask why can’t you give back to a country that has gave you so much. So many people has lived his music to include me. I never thought someone would turn there back on a country that has supported him so much. With all the money and influence you have you can’t help do something to stop it.

The answer doesn’t start with money it starts with people asking questions. Put your political views apart and start doing what the people did to build this country. The government will not fix this problem. They will continue to profit from it. You look at how much money was spent to benefit this government. The first question should be, what are you doing to protect our children? I promise you the security at congress and senate will be increased after Jan 6. Do you not think that costs money?

I just really wish people would think and start relying on each other to fix problems. As a veteran I know you can’t rely on our government, however history has shown you can rely on the American people.

We have came together during so many times of need. From 9-11 to ww1 and 2. National disasters that has effected people you didn’t know, but wanted to help. Do you not think the things going on in our country isn’t something that we should rely on each other to fix versus a government that does not listen.

On this day August 28, 1941

On this day With the nation on the verge of entering World War II and prices threatening to skyrocket, the government chose to take action against inflation. On this day, President Franklin Roosevelt handed down an executive order establishing the Office of Price Administration (OPA). Charged with controlling consumer prices in the face of war, the OPA wheeled into action, imposing rent controls and a rationing program which initially targeted auto tires. Soon, the agency was churning out coupon books for sugar, coffee, meat, fats, oils, and numerous other items. Though goods were in tight supply, Americans were urged to stick to the system of rationing. Some even took the Homefront Pledge, a declaration of their commitment to avoiding the black market in favor of buying the OPA way. The end of the war didn t prompt an instant shutdown of the OPA. Reasoning that some goods were still quite scarce, President Truman kept the agency running. However, the existence of a government agency for regulated prices and production didn’t sit well with some people. Big business bristled at the controls, as did farmers, who suffered under continued meat rationing. Soon after the ’46 election, the OPA was relieved of its duties, with only rents, sugar, and rice still subject to controls. The agency’s record of service during the war was fairly impressive: by V-J, consumer prices had increased by 31 percent, a number which was noticeably better than the 62 percent bloating of prices during World War I.

So you compare what President Roosevelt did for this country compared to what is happening for us and I think you will see how times have changed. I heard people from both sides say the bill that just passed to control inflation will do nothing for inflation. Most think it will make things worse by spending more money that we don’t have. I don’t think the people are in the best interest of the powers to be anymore.

I am not a fan of President Roosevelt, however you can’t say he wasn’t here for the people. He was the reason working conditions for factory workers improved. He is also the reason why the energy monopoly was stopped. The very rich and powerful put him in as a vice president to prevent him from becoming the president. It turned on them when he was made president by the death of President McKinley. I think he remembered who he worked for maybe its a lesson that needs relearned.

On this day In Havana, Cuba, U.S. Army physician James Carroll allowed an infected mosquito to feed on him in an attempt to isolate the means of transmission of yellow fever. Days later, Carroll developed a severe case of yellow fever, helping his colleague, Army Walter Reed, prove that mosquitoes can transmit the sometimes deadly disease.

This is the second article I read about someone infecting themselves with yellow fever to prove that mosquitoes pass the disease on. Times have definitely changed since than. Today if we want to study a disease we just give it to another country like the corona virus. China passes it onto us and than study how to get rid of it. Not sure who is smarter or braver depending on how you look at it.

On this day Manhunt begins. 3rd Battalion. 75th Ranger Regiment and 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment (DELTA) deploy to Somalia to capture warlord Mohammad Farrah Aidid.

I don’t know much but I do know that is not a team I would want chasing me. You are not escaping these guys. These are some of the best at what they do and true professionals that you will ever meet.

I was never in Somalia, but I have spoke to people who has and they can confirm what a shit hole. The unit I spent the most time in 10 years of my 20 year career was the 160th Special Operation Aviation Regiment. The show black Hawk Down was an aircraft from my Unit. This happened just two months after this man hunt began.

On this day Hurricane Katrina made landfall between Hallandale Beach and Aventura, Florida, as a Category 1 hurricane. Four days later it came ashore again near Empire, Buras and Boothville, Louisiana. The rescue and response effort was one of the largest in Coast Guard history, with 24,135 lives saved and 9,409 evacuations.

We never give enough credit to the coast guard. They really do some great things behind the scenes. In the military we all kind of look down on them out of jealousy. The truth is these are some of the bravest men and women in the military fighting drugs, human trafficking, and natural disasters. My hats off to you guys thank you.

On this day Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev sent a message to Iraqi President Saddam Hussein warning the Persian Gulf situation was “extremely dangerous.”

It makes you wonder if he wasn’t a bit physic. I mean considering years later the man was hiding in a hole in the ground while we hunted him down. We than turn him over to his own people who killed him. So ya I guess you could say it was dangerous. Years later the world seen our government has made our military for hire. I mean we are still sitting in Kuwait protecting them while they pay our government for us to be there.

On this day First flight of the C-130 Hercules transport aircraft. The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft designed and built originally by Lockheed, now Lockheed Martin. Capable of using unprepared runways for takeoffs and landings, the C-130 was originally designed as a troop, medical evacuation, and cargo transport aircraft. The versatile airframe has found uses in a variety of other roles, including as a gunship (AC-130), for airborne assault, search and rescue, scientific research support, weather reconnaissance, aerial refueling, maritime patrol, and aerial firefighting. It is now the main tactical airlifter for many military forces worldwide. Over 40 models and variants of the Hercules serve with more than 60 nations. The C-130 entered service with U.S., followed by Australia and others. During its years of service, the Hercules family has participated in numerous military, civilian and humanitarian aid operations. The family has the longest continuous production run of any military aircraft in history. In 2007, the C-130 became the fifth aircraft—after the English Electric Canberra, Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, Tupolev Tu-95, and Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker, all designs with various forms of aviation gas turbine powerplants—to mark 50 years of continuous use with its original primary customer, in this case, the United States Air Force. The C-130 is one of the only military aircraft to remain in continuous production for over 50 years with its original customer, as the updated C-130J Super Hercules.

I have some very fond memories of being on a C-130. Sitting in the cargo net seats. Shoulder to shoulder with the guy next to you. The crew chiefs walking across everyone’s knees to do there checks. Is truly an experience I can say not enough people get to encounter. Its funny as hell when you embrace the suck, how little some other things suck. These aircraft on a serious note truly is amazing. I think they are one of the most versatile aircrafts in the Air Force’s fleet.

On this day August 22, 1990

On this day President Bush signed an order calling up reservists to bolster the US military buildup in the Persian Gulf. This created a ton of funny images. I remember seeing reservist holding up signs that say “1 weekend a month 2 weeks a year my ass”. These made us active duty guys laugh so hard. However nobody ever expected what came much later to happen. As Afghanistan raged on, I remember Soldiers who were forced to go past their enlistment date. I know for a fact you got a much different attitude from these Soldiers compared to when they thought they were full filling their contract obligations. I never really agreed with it as I felt that a volunteer army has always made us the best military in the world.

Now to be fair, the small print of the contract does state your obligation is 8 years. So if you enlist for 2 years active you will do 6 inactive with the ability to be called back up. So instead of calling people back up they just kept you. Now I also seen people who was out of the military get called back up to the reserves, after being out of the military. That small print got a lot of people.

On this day In Afghanistan NATO took command of the 5,000-strong international peacekeeping force in Kabul, its 1st deployment outside Europe.

I spent the majority of my almost 7 years deployed in Afghanistan. I can vouch that bases and fobs that Nato took over turned to shit. Kandahar was a place where no officer wanted to be called in charge of in fear of the impact on their careers. The infrastructure had no control or planning and units of all countries staked their flag in an area and did as they pleased. The power grid for the base looked like something created out of mad max. I am def not a fan of Nato and truly think they are part of our problems.

On this day Smith and Wesson patented metal bullet cartridges. It is just amazing looking at how advanced the round has gotten since this day. You look at the technology that goes into the making of rounds today compared to what they did back than. Obviously the accuracy has improved drastically too. It does astonish me how much history that people just don’t want to discuss and would rather get rid of it versus embracing it. I think it would be awesome to just own some of the rounds from this time.
