Only 51 percent of the vote is in down in the sixth district, with Ossoff having polled 51 percent, exactly enough to win the election. But the precincts that have reported are heavily democrat, i.e. black. The precincts still to be reported are in the more affluent, white and conservative parts of the sixth district. The Democrats gerrymandered the district long ago to insure a large black presence , but the result has been that the votes tend to go on ethnic lines. I doubt Ossoff will have fifty one percent when the last results are tallied.
What is very strange is that all three Atlanta affiliates are reporting the polls were inundated today by Democrats who did not have the right to vote in the Sixth District. There were other minor issues to be settled in the state today, including one State Senator (i.e. for the State Assembly in Atlanta). But many, many moonbats, snowflakes, and the sweeping of the Democratic party gutters showed up demanding to vote. When they were told they could not vote in the Sixth District because they were registered in other districts, they pitched fits. Never heard of that happening before.
Today is voting day. The big , burning issue in Georgia is whether or not a raving Democrat named Jon Ossoff will win in the Sixth District. It's a national issue, since the previous seat holder stepped down to become President Trump's Secretary of Health and Human Services. When Tom Price accepted that position, his seat became vacant and today the issue will either be decided, if Ossoff wins a majority of votes, or punted to June 1 in a run off.
Ossoff is a nightmare. He's a Nancy Pelosi blessed, John Lewis wanna be. He has raised more money for his run at the seat than any one in history, almost all of it out of state and from the Democratic Party.
The Dems are saying that this is a referendum on the President's policies, which is complete B.S. It's about buying the black vote.
|Can you pick "Jon" out in this photo!|
Ossoff is vehemently anti Second Amendment. He has accepted support from the "Pride Fund " which exists solely to take guns away from Georgians.
Ossoff isn't above taking money from the Islamic propagandists, either. Al Jazeera loves him.
Ordinarily, even in the sixth district, he wouldn't have a prayer. The problem is that the Republican "machine" has collapsed, and they can't control what goes on in the party since the "Never Trumpers" caused so much anger in Georgia. So we have 16 nominally Republican candidates running for the seat. You have to get 51 percent of the vote to win. What I hope will happen is the Pelosi puppet won't make 51 percent, and will have to face a single "Republican" candidate in June.
We'll see what happens.
Tewshooz and I were talking about comic books. I used to buy them for a dime, and finance my purchases by walking along the roads with my bothers, picking up soda bottles. We took our Red Flyer wagon, covered both sides, and turned in the bottles for a three cent deposit. Then we'd buy candy bars for a nickle, or a soda for a dime, or a comic book for a dime.
My favorites were:
Johnny Cloud the Navajo Ace was a great comic book about an American Indian P-51 pilot. He was always under pressure to prove himself since he came from a warrior tribe, so he had to put on a front of being tough and fearless when he was actually a rather sensitive individual. I am sure that resonated with a lot of young boys in those days.
Sgt. Rock comics usually dealt with problems of leadership. Rock's platoon always got desperate missions and there was always some member of the platoon who didn't want to get with the program. Rock always showed the recalcitrant individual the error of his ways by the end of the comic book. These weren't just for entertainment back then. They taught young boys and young men a set of values. Probably why comic books like these don't exist anymore.
Sgt. Fury was the antitheses of Sgt. Rock. His troops were not green recruits and draftees, but professional soldiers. In the Sgt. Rock comic books, the characters other than Rock often changed. But in Sgt. Fury, the individual characters remained the same. Sgt. Fury always slaughtered the enemy with great abandon and a remarkable sang froid.
Fightin' Marines told different stories about the Marine Corps, with different characters. The stories were largely based on the citations for Bronze Star, Silver Star, and Medal of Honor winners. I am sure the comic was worth a dozen recruiting stations for the Marine Corps back in those days.
Two more Marine oriented comics were "Semper Fi" and "U.S. Marines in Action"
Again, these didn't follow individual characters, but were based on actual exploits from Marine Corps History. This cover shows the Boxer Rebellion.
The Navy and the Air Force were never as well represented in the comic books of the day as the Army and Marines, but they did have their own titles.
One thing about the comics you'll notice if you ever browse through a few of them. The Germans were always represented as professional warriors. Ruthless, but fearsome and respected.
The Japanese, on the other hand, were cut no slack. They were always brutal savages. My Uncle and my father, both of whom served in the Pacific, felt that was exactly right. My dad hated the Japanese until the day he died. My wife's father, who fought in the Pacific as a Marine infantryman, seconded the opinion. Two different wars, going on at the same time. I liked the Japanese a lot when I lived in Japan, but that was the late 70's. Times change.
I've saved one of my favorites for last. This comic book followed a Stuart tank and it's crew through WW2. The catch was, the tank was haunted by the ghosts of previous crew members. The Stuart was a light reconnaissance tank, but in each episode the dauntless crew, aided by spectral well wishers, defeated monstrous German Panthers and Tigers . It was a real life impossibility in more ways than one, but it was a great comic.
When I went off to college, I had hundreds of these comics and two big orange net sacks of baseball cards from the 1950's and 1960's stored in trunks. My dad threw them all away. Too bad, it would be fun to to look at them today.
Above is a link to the best description of the U.S.S. Pueblo incident I am aware of. Ironically, it's Australian. We did absolutely nothing about it.
Here's the song that was inspired by the Pueblo being seized by the North Koreans.
Then there was the EC-121 Shoot Down, in international waters, by the dwarfs from hell.
April 5, 1969
Flight Deep Sea 129 is shot down over international waters by North Korean migs.
31 sailors and 1 Marine killed.
The U.S. did nothing.
