Well, it appears that Obamacare will pass and some deal has been cemented in Copenhagen. I guess we're getting what we deserve, namely a broke and destitute country. Good thing we're citizens of another kingdom, huh? But it kinda makes you homesick, doesn't it?
I don't know where Joe is. I seem to be doing all the thinking and writing.

I'll say more later.
First of all, you know how Google always spices up their main search engine page on holidays; why didn't they do anything for Pearl Harbor Day. Pinheads!
Nagato was a battleship of the Imperial Japanese Navy, the lead ship of her class. She was the first battleship in the world to mount 16 inch class guns, and her armor protection and speed made her one of the most powerful capital ships at the time of her commissioning. She was the flagship of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto during the attack on Pearl Harbor.
So what did we do with her after the War? We used her as target practice for our newly acquired nuclear weapons. She sunk after the second shot of Operation CROSSROADS. And that is why I'm proud to be an American!
