  1. SATURDAY AFTERNOON SPECIAL (the last link from yesterday)

    The Army’s Spectacular Hidden Treasure Room – AMAZING!
    However, there are major fundraising hurdles to jump before the museum can be built. The foundation’s president recently told the Washington Post that it has raised $76 million of the $175 million required for the museum and predicts the museum could open in 2018. The plan is to build the museum at Fort Belvoir.

    A couple of crappy state run healthcare sites could have easily funded the museum. The contents from the link reminded me of Indiana Jones in the room filled with the riches of the ages – treasures that have been buried in the vaults for so many years.

  2. Hello Peeps,

    Hope Keith is off doing something enjoyable and refreshing.

    That said, for those of you who have not,perhaps now is the time to read Jonah Goldberg’s book on Liberal Fascism. “Facism” – statism – is the enemy of individual freedom and lives on today in the liberals of the left.

    It is well researched, well written and a good and timely read.

    You can find it on Amazon here.

    Keith, you could have left a little wine and cheese on the table or should we just assume it’s a BYO house party.

  4. In case this got by you. I wonder if the IRS ever has garage sale?

    The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) bought $11.6 million worth of computer software the agency never used, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

    TIGTA attributed the error to poor management and a lack of inventory of more than $200 million in software purchased by the IRS, according to an audit released Thursday.

    Hmm…wonder if they’ll have a garage sale.

  6. Personally, I’m sitting here enjoying everyone else’s comments while eating salted peanuts and drinking a nice, big Dirty Martini. Shaken, not stirred!!!
