Subject: FW: Three New Navy Ships

3 New Navy Ships: 

USS REAGAN
 

Seeing it next to the Arizona Memorial really puts its size into perspective... ENORMOUS!

 

When the Bridge pipes 'Man the Rail' there is a lot of rail to man on this monster: shoulder to shoulder, around 4.5 acres.  Her displacement is about 100,000 tons with full complement.   

Capability


Top speed exceeds 30 knots, powered by two nuclear reactors that can operate for more than 20 years without refueling                    

1. Expected to operate in the fleet for about 50 years 

2. Carries over 80 combat aircraft  

3. Three arresting cables can stop a 28-ton aircraft going 150 miles per hour in less than 400 feet
 

Size


1. Towers 20 stories above the waterline

2. 1092 feet long; nearly as long as the Empire State Building is tall 

3.  Flight deck covers 4.5 acres

4.  4 bronze propellers, each 21 feet across, weighing 66,200  pounds

5.  2 rudders, each 29 by 22 feet and weighing 50 tons

6.  4 high speed aircraft elevators, each over 4,000 square feet 
  

Capacity
 

1. Home to about 6,000 Navy personnel  

2. Carries enough food and supplies to operate for 90 days

3.  18,150 meals served daily

4.  Distillation plants provide 400,000 gallons of fresh water from sea water daily, enough for 2,000 homes       

5.  Nearly 30,000 light fixtures and 1,325 miles of cable and wiring 1,400 telephones 

6.  14,000 pillowcases and 28,000 sheets


  

USS BILL CLINTON
 


The USS William Jefferson Clinton (CVS1) set sail today from its home port of Vancouver , BC

The ship is the first of its kind in the Navy and is a standing legacy to President Bill Clinton 'for his foresight in military budget cuts' and his conduct while holding the (formerly dignified) office of President. 

The ship is constructed nearly entirely from recycled aluminum and is completely solar powered with a top speed of 5 knots. It boasts an arsenal comprised of one (unarmed) F14 Tomcat or one (unarmed) F18 Hornet aircraft which, although they cannot be launched on the 100 foot flight deck, form a very menacing presence. 

As a standing order, there are no firearms allowed on board.

This crew, like the crew aboard the USS Jimmy Carter, is specially trained to avoid conflicts and appease any and all enemies of the United States at all costs. 

An onboard Type One DNC Universal Translator can send out messages of apology in any language to anyone who may find America offensive.  The number of apologies are limitless and though some may seem hollow and disingenuous, the Navy advises all apologies will sound very sincere.   

In times of conflict, the USS Clinton has orders to seek refuge in Canada . 


USS  BARACK OBAMA

Details are  vague.    

But don't you worry..........he has a plan

So Simple a caveman could understand:
 
Why did Bernie Madoff go to prison? To make it simple, he talked people into investing with him. Trouble was, he didn't invest their money.  As time rolled on he simply took the money from the new investors to pay off the old investors.  Finally there were too many old investors and not enough money from new investors coming in to keep the payments going.
Next thing you know, Madoff is one of the most hated men in  America  and he is off to jail.  Some of you know this. but not enough of you.
 
Madoff did to his investors what the Congress has been doing to us for over 70 years with Social Security.  There is no meaningful difference between the two schemes, except that one was operated by a private individual who is now in jail, and the other is operated by politicians who enjoy perks, privileges and status in spite of their actions.
 
 Do you need a side-by-side comparison here?  Well here's a nifty little chart.
 
BERNIE MADOFF
SOCIAL SECURITY
Takes money from investors with the promise that the money will be invested and made available to them later.
Takes money from wage earners with the promise that the money will be invested in a "Trust Fund" and made available later.
Instead of investing the money Madoff spends it on nice homes in theHamptons and yachts.
Instead of depositing money in a Trust Fund the politicians use it for general spending and vote buying.
When the time comes to pay the investors back Madoff simply uses some of the new funds from newer investors to pay back the older investors.
When benefits for older investors become due the politicians pay them with money taken from younger and newer wage earners to pay the geezers.
When Madoff's scheme is discovered all hell breaks loose. New investors won't give him any more cash.
When Social Security runs out of money they simply force the taxpayers to send them some more.
Bernie Madoff is in jail.
Politicians remain in  Washington  .
'The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination. ' - Ronald Reagan


  "If you put the federal government in charge of the  Sahara   Desert , in five
  years there’d be a shortage of sand.”

Subject: FW: THANK GOD FOR THE PRESIDENT! must read

 

An excellent piece of writing!   This lady does have a point that perhaps most

have not considered.  Destruction from within....

 

 From an 82 year old widow in Greenville , SC .......
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
That is right - I will say it THANK GOD FOR THE PRESIDENT!
 WHY?


1. He destroyed the Clinton Political Machine - Driving a stake thru the heart of Hillary's Presidential aspirations - something no Republican was ever able to do.  Remember when a Hillary Presidency scared the daylights out of you!


 2. He killed off the Kennedy Dynasty - No more Kennedy's trolling Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home.  American women and Freedom are safer tonight!


 3. He is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes!
              Dennis Moore had never lost a race - quit
                Evan Bayh had never lost a race - quit
              Byron Dorgan - had never lost a race - quit
             Harry Reid - Soon to be GONE
 These are just a handful of the Democrats that whose political careers Obama has destroyed! By the end of 2010 dozens more will be!
 In December of 2008 the Democrats were on the rise.  In the last two election cycles they had picked up 14 senate seats and 52 house seats. 
The press was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party.  In just one year, Obama put a stop to all of this and will probably give the house, if not the senate back to the Republicans.


4. He has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are. 
Every Generation seems to need to relearn the lesson on why they should never actually put liberals in charge.  He is bringing home the lesson very well!
                Liberals tax, borrow and spend - check
               Liberals won't bring themselves to protect America - check
                Liberals want to take over the economy - check
              Liberals think they know what is best for everyone - check
                Liberals aren't happy till they are running YOUR life - check

 

 

    5. He has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since Reagan. In One year he rejuvenated the Conservative movement and brought out to the streets millions of Freedom Loving Americans. Name me one other time in your life that you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America !


 6. His amazing leadership has sparked the greatest period of sales of firearms and ammunition this country has seen. Law abiding citizens have rallied and have provided a "stimulus" to the sporting goods field while other industries have failed, faded or moved off-shore!


 7. In all honesty one year ago I was more afraid than I had ever been in my life.  Not of the economy but of the direction our country was going. I thought Americans had forgotten what this country was all about.  My neighbors, friends, strangers proved to me that my lack of confidence of the Greatness and Wisdom of the American people was flat out wrong.


8.  When the American People wake up no smooth talking tele-prompter reader can fool them!

Barak Obama woke up these Great Americans.  Again, I want to say thank you Barak Obama!

God Bless America !!!!
