Just chuck it, it's only taxpayer dollars

The final phase of the evacuation was code-named Operation Frequent Wind. The American Embassy had previously distributed a booklet to its citizens, called "Standard Instruction and Advice to Civilians in an Emergency" (SAFE). This included a map of Saigon showing areas where they would be picked up when the signal was given. The signal, to be broadcast on Armed Forces Radio, was ""The temperature in Saigon is 105 degrees and rising," followed by the playing of "White Christmas."

Frequent Wind was carried out on April 29 and 30. Such was the speed of the evacuation and the number of people involved that the ships became overwhelmed with people and the helicopters that had brought them. Orders were given to push surplus helicopters over the sides of the ships to make room for more. Some pilots were told to drop off their passengers, then ditch their machines in the sea, bailing out at the last moment to be picked up by waiting rescue boats.

Over 7,000 people were evacuated in Operation Frequent Wind.

not wise, not smart, just an evil, damaged man ... who will do the will of satan ... the Bible warned us "The Father of Lies" ... the false prophet

Send this to all of your evangelical friends and family because this is the last chance to stop evil from overtaking the world

"Bomb, bomb, bomb...... bomb, bomb Iran" ... remember that

Lindsey's daddy told us and Misster Lyndsey is now going with it!

2020, not so much about our nominee but will be about our VP

If Democratic Party Presidential nominee does not choose an African American as our VP, preferably an African American woman! .... then we will never win. Plenty of amazing folks to consider. My vote would be, Stacey Abrams. Oh, I know you know that she did not consult me, LOL. BTW she is doing the hard ground work of trying to fight for Voter's Rights in Georgia.


Stacey Yvonne Abrams (born December 9, 1973) is an American politician, lawyer, and author who served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2007 to 2017, and served as minority leader from 2011 to 2017.[1] A member of the Democratic Party, she was the party's nominee in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election, but lost to Brian Kemp without conceding the election. Abrams was the first African-American female major-party gubernatorial nominee of the United States.[2] In February 2019, she became the first African-American woman to deliver a response to the State of the Union address.

George Harrison was almost killed in his own home more than 20 years ago, today

This was posted in 2014, therefore, the event happened more then 20 years ago.

“They used us as an excuse to go mad, the world did," George Harrison said in the Beatles' 1995 Anthology documentary. "And then blamed it on us.” But even he could never suspect that, four years later, those words would ring true again when, on Dec. 30, 1999, a mad man attacked Harrison in his own house, nearly killing him.

At approximately 3:30AM, Michael Abram, a 33-year old native of Liverpool, avoided security by scaling the fence of Harrison's Friar Park estate near Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire and entered the mansion by throwing a statue through a window, which woke up the sleeping Harrisons.

George confronted Abram, who was screaming at the spiritual Beatle with a knife in his hand. The 56-year-old Harrison ran at Abram to try to tackle and disarm him. The attempt was unsuccessful, and George was stabbed repeatedly in the chest.
