WWII German Captured T34 Tank Recovered
"Kurtna Matasjarv was a child when he saw that German soldiers are driving into the lake with the tank. That was in the middle of September in 1944. After 56 years later Kurtna tells his story to the local history club. In February the club starts to dig out the tank, and a half years later the tank was freed with a Komatsu D375A-2 ( as you see). After a little cleaning in the motor room, the tank engine starts to work after 56 years. Sorry for my bad English."

"How much weight did 'honor among gentlemen' carry in these extraordinary times? And, for that matter, how much did the Southerners’ 'strong convictions' count for? The Carolinians were certain that they knew the terms of the bargain they had just struck – but there is little evidence that the president did."

DB: You don't think that Obama wasn't born in the United States, do you?
LS: He was not born here.
LS: That's my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go — within 10 minutes — to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, "See? Look! Here it is." The man has dodged everything. He dodges questions, he doesn't answer anything. And why? Because he's hiding something.
You know what? People who have bad intentions, people that are deceivers or are not of honor and integrity — that's how they act. I've seen it in every — it doesn't matter what level. It can be in politics, it can be in business, it can be in sports, it can be in the construction field. Doesn't matter. It's all the same attitude. It's the same thing.
People who tell the truth, they're very easy to ... their actions prove it. Something as simple providing a birth certificate. Come on. If you're born here, there's plenty of documents. But you know what? There's no documentation of him. No legal documentation of him. There's been lie after lie after lie exposed, but people put it under the carpet. Hence, the problem we have in this country.
LS: There needs to be accountability for the truth. I don't care if you're the president of the United States, you need to be held accountable. If you're involved in treacherous acts, or you're saying things that are against, or are selling out our country, you should be brought to trial.
I mean, no one's above the law. There's a lot of people that fought for their country and that's not something to be taken lightly. They gave their life, everything they had, they gave their lives, to give us what we have. That's why I'm so passionate about my beliefs -- because someone died. They gave their life, their blood was spilled, so I had an opportunity to chase a dream and play baseball for a living.
For me, that's not something, "Oh, thank you." No. "THANK YOU." Let me honor you for that by actions by sticking up for what you fought for and passing it on to the next generation and doing my part.
And a lot more. Read it all HERE.Via Conservative Heritage Times

"The 'center' tries to impose its will in order to keep the powerful financial interests afloat while gas prices go up with the weak dollar and austerity budgets hurt everyone in hard economic times.
"Even if I said the founders were Christians, how could we really know? Just because people carry a big ol' Bible in their hand, they can still be atheists!" said the guide.

UPDATE: Posted as comment also.
Well, folks, they did it again. I just got off the phone with the Hardball folks and they have once again asked to punt. I am told that they are too wound up over the tax debate. I am sorry for the game of ping-pong but I have been the ball. I look forward to the opportunity and am sure it will be back. I will let you know when it happens.
Please let anyone you told know of this update.

For Public Release:
Sons of Confederate Veterans, Commander-in-Chief, Michael Givens is scheduled to appear “live” on the MSNBC Hardball show with Chris Matthews today, Wednesday 8 December 2010. TIME: 5:00 p.m. and again later (assume taped) 7:00p.m.
Those of you who are familiar with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews know that he is “brutal” with opposing viewpoints on his program and will, no doubt, do his best to trip, frustrate and test the patience and knowledge of Commander Givens. In short, Matthews doesn’t soft shoe anything and will make a full frontal attack on Commander Givens and the SCV with claims of slavery, racism and the like…..we are confident that CiC Givens will demonstrate the best of courage and honor and will represent, with pride and dignity, the SCV and the memory of our Confederate forebears.
The purpose of this email is to inform you first, of the program schedule should you wish to view and second, to ask that you offer the following prayer at some point during the day or some version of it on behalf of Commander Givens and the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The world is watching us again on the eve of this sesquicentennial of the Cause for Southern Independence; let us unite our hearts together in “One Voice” to the God of Heaven, asking for Grace and Strength in this coming hour.
A Prayer for Confederate History
[Composed by Bishop Ellison Capers of South Carolina]
Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, we adore They love and providence in the history of our country and especially would thank Thee for our Confederate history.
We thank Thee for its pure record of virtue, valor and sacrifice: and for inspiring reflection that despite its bitter disappointments and sorrows, it proclaims for us, to all the world, that we came through its years of trial and struggle with our battered shields pure, our character as a patriotic and courageous people untarnished and nothing to regret in our defense of the rights and honor of our Southland.
Give us grace, our Heavenly Father, faithfully to accept Thy will concerning us, and make us all to glorify Thee in a sincere obedience to Thy holy commandments through the merits and mediation of They Son, our only Saviour, Jesus Christ, Amen.
Mark A. Simpson, Commander
