I lived a couple years in North Park and a couple years in Mira Mesa and one year in Chula Vista. The San Diego area is cool. The Silver Strand Beach has the best swimming on the west coast. General Lemay was an alumni of San Diego High School and his giant portrait is proudly displayed on the wall.

Argentina still wants the Malvinas which Great Britain calls the Falkland Islands and a bitter war was fought down there in the early eighties, Great Britain won. Queen Elizabeth II has a son who fought in it and Trump is respecting the Queen.

FUCK the Queen !!! We FOUGHT A WAR so we DIDN'T have to obey the British monarchy.

Jimmy Carter was last truly decent human being to occupy the White House. He is a true testament to what it means to be a Christian. I wish more supposed Christians were like him !!!

Carter accepts Order of the Liberator General San Martín award

Former US president Jimmy Carter has officially accepted the Order of the Liberator General San Martín award — the highest distinction the Argentine government can give — the Foreign Ministry confirmed yesterday.
The announcement came in the wake of reports last week that appeared on the CNNespañol website, saying that President Mauricio Macri had been due to give Carter the award during his visit to the US last week, but had delayed the announcement on the suggestion of the White House.
The award is a result of President Carter’s defence of human rights in Argentina during his term in office (1977-1981).
Carter’s government condemned the massive human rights violations that were occurring in the country and the president demanded the location of thousands of the forced-disappeared victims be released, making human rights the leading issue in the US government’s relations with Argentina. The late Patricia “Patt” Derian, Carter’s former assistant secretary of humanitarian affairs and human rights, will also receive a posthumous Order of Liberator award.
Carter’s administration played a key part in the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights visit to Argentina in 1979, which many human rights activists cite as a decisive step that helped to put an end to the dictatorship’s campaign of state terrorism. It is not known yet when the former US president will officially receive the award from the Foreign Ministry, which said it was currently coordinating the date for a ceremony.

Fuck the Queen brings back a memory in the only registered British Navy Pub in Hong Kong on the Queen's birthday. The House of Winsor is in Scotland and musicians were playing bagpipes wearing kilts. I said Fuck the Queen in a loud voice because the Queen did not support our efforts in Vietnam. The bagpipers stopped playing and I said it again. I was the only American Sailor in the joint and a brawl was about to erupt when Aussies came to my defense and said Fuck Nixon.

After the incident everyone got along good and the Aussies taught me how to play snooker. Fast forward six years when I had Aussies in my class and beat them at snooker in the Acy Deucy club on Combat Systems Technical Schools Command which they thought impossible. Aussies are honorable.
