      Congrates Jay…I hereby forthwith do pass unto you the crown of FIRST for the TAH Wednesday Midweek Open Thread. Welcome to thebesig’s jotting down on the Veteran’s Desk Copy to do list page book. Lord over long and pester.

      I was FIRST at the meat counter at the K Roger Store when the market manager was doing a reset. He discounted me some 96 lean/ 4% fat grounded round grillable beef beast. Gots me about 20 1 lb packs for $3.99 ea. This ain’t that plastic tube stuff neither, fresh ground. Usually get $7.99 per ea. Gotta move some bacon, beef and porked orasted beast around to get it in the freezer.

      Grilled bacon cheese burgers in the mess hall at Firebase Magnolia…wid some orasted taters…Neopolitan ice cream over cookies.

      • AW1Ed says:

        Beef that lean will dry out on the grill in heartbeat. Pro tip- build a two stage grill, one side hot the other not. Sandwich a fat pat of butter in the center of your burger patties, and grill almost to desired done-ness on the cooler side of the grill. Finish with a quick sear on the hot side, slap on the cheese and return to the cooler side to finish.
        Say goodby to dry burgers.

          Roger that ‘Ed. You musta stole my technique. Can’t tell you how many exes and Ms Thangs I had to convince to “don’t make me make a hockey puck out of these burgers.”

          If it ain’t a dripping burger juice from the ‘stach into the beard, it’s over cooked.

          Doc told me to stick to the lowest fat, leanest beefed beast I can get. Trying to keep him happy. Most of my direct grilling is done in a fairly large fire pit with an oversized triangular stainless steel mesh grill my departed Marine Buddy made for me. Gives me a lot of heat control areas.

          Brings some made up crab cakes wid ya. We’ll get fat and happy.

    Posted this yesterday, it’s more appropriate here. Some cheery news for Wednesday. She’s well-known here.


    • ChipNASA says:

      Wow. I either forget about this or did not know about this latest twist. (Or both LOL)

      This made me happy.

      “In all, Zeitner is serving a 28-year prison sentence for convictions in three separate cases.

      She received 10 years in the abortion case, more than two years for a 2016 drunken driving conviction and nearly 16 years for convictions for defrauding a charity for military veterans and its leader in 2012.”

      YAY and FUCK YOU! 😀 😀 😀

      Infanticiding scamming grifting lying thieving valor-stealing posering con-artist finally receives her just reward…

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        Remember this snake headed crazy eyed scum from the other day.

        I will repeat/paraphrase my post from then.

        May you rot in Hell you murderous bitch while Satan eats your soul. In the meantime enjoy your servicing of all the skanks in lock up with you. Who knows, you may enjoy both?

      But would IDC SARC hit it?

  5. Jay says:

    Chalice? That chicks name is CHALICE!?!

    A chalice is a goblet, or cup. In other words: a RECEPTACLE.

    That sounds about right. Side note: she has some CRAZY eyes.

  6. AnotherPat says:

    Does anyone remember this story that Jonn posted last 4th of July on that crazy woman who climbed the Statue of Liberty?


    “Therese Okoumou climbed the feet of the Statue of Liberty yesterday to protest the Trump immigration policy that has been in effect through the last three presidential administrations. Her stunt resulted in an end to planned July 4th festivities on Liberty Island according to the New York Post”:

    Well, she showed up in Court yesterday.

    Her punishment? She got 5 years Probation and 200 Hours of Community Service:


    “Woman Who Climbed Statue Of Liberty’s Pedestal Avoids Jail Time”

    “Judge Imposes 5 Years Probation, 200 Hours Community Service For Therese Patricia Okoumou’s 4th Of July Stunt”

    In the video in the article, it looks as if she is wearing an Ike Jacket and some ribbons?

    You Be The Judge. Me thinks she is not finish wiht her stunts…Sheesh, Some People..

    • AW1Ed says:

      I remember her well, and what a spectacle she was trash-talking the US for being so prejudice.

      Should have put her ass on a slow boat back to DROC, or wherever shithole she came from.

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      Too bad the folks that had there Independence Day Celebration and trips ruined can’t find a real good ambulance chasing lawer and start a class action lawsuit against the bitch.

      What a travesty. Deport that bitch to the sh^thole she came from. The more the courts allow this kind of crap to be gotten away with, the more it’s gonna happen. And what about the salaries paid to all of the LEO and Park Service people? The equipment used to get her to “safety?”

      • AnotherPat says:

        We can’t get rid of her, i.e. send her back to her country of origin.

        She was naturalized as a citizen in 2016.

        IMHO, she should have received jail time and a hefty fine.


        • 5th/77th FA says:


          Plan A? Lawsuit? Might take forever and may not get anything, but it may send a message.


        • streetsweeper says:

          Oh yea! She can be stripped of her naturalized citizen status and returned to her home country.

          Bet your sweet ass it can happen. 🙂

    Just verified, Bernath is still dead!

    • Friend says:

      Giggling to laughing our asses off. Rot you bag of shit..

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        and still maintaining minus 6 feet AGL and acting as a worm buffet.

        • Just An Old Dog says:

          I think whatever got scrapped off the instrument panel and prop and picked out of the bushed got cremated. A Box of ashes is what got planted.
          It’s just as well his DNA didn’t get in any worms.

  9. Ex-PH2 says:

    Uhhh…. this is something I did not think I’d see any time soon.

    From the New York Post, this headline:
    Ocasio-Cortez booted from board of Justice Democrats PAC


    “The action was taken because the two never told the Federal Election Commission that they controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign, the report said.

    “The two joined the board in December 2017 and continued to hold “legal control over the entity” leading up to her June 2018 Democratic primary win over incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley, the report said.

    “Ocasio-Cortez was removed from the board the same month but was listed as an “entity governor” until March 14, the Daily Caller reported, citing corporate filings.”

    There are several backpedaling excuses included at the end of the article, but… well….

    Do you think maybe she got on someone’s nerves? (gigglesnorrttt)

    • Mason says:

      Those two idiots didn’t realize that being a corrupt politician only works if you become corrupt after you’re elected. Since he own party is already mad at her, expect her to fall hard. Hopefully to disappear into the dustbin of forgotten Democrats. She can share a room with John Edwards and Dukakis.

    I just watched Special Report on Fox News.
    I read that they hired both donna, here’s the question for the debate killary, brazile and put world champion slimebag paul, what invasion, ryan on the board of directors for the new Fox just after it was sold to Disney for over 50 billion dollars.
    I just turned special report off and I doubt if I will ever listen again.
    Same with juan, I’m a Christian and I support killing babies, williams on The Five.
    So there you have it, the libtards have just taken over the last bastion of conservative news programs…
    They are now just like pmsnbc…
    WTAF ?????

    “Up-and-coming country singer Justin Carter died at age 35 after a gun accidentally fired while he was filming a music video.

    “McClellan said the family has set up a GoFundMe in order to cover funeral costs as well as to bring Carter’s body back from Houston to San Antonio for burial. She said Carter was in the U.S. Army but she was unsure at this time if he would meet the qualifications for a military burial“

  12. MustangCPT says:

    Something to cleanse the palate…apparently there is a new internet viral sensation whereby you Google “Florida man” plus your birthday and see what articles come up. Since we seem to see an awful lot of phoniness out of that state, I figured the assembly of rogues that is this blog would enjoy. Here’s an article about it:
