GMC “Gunner� Mark Tejchman

Today we lost a shipmate

A friend throughout the years

He sailed the open oceans

He sailed the upon the seas

But when he was the happiest

Was when he sailed home to thee

His life was filled with happiness

With some disappointments thrown in

But never did he give up the fight

For that was never him.

He has set sail for the final voyage,

A deployment for the ages

One he didn't want to take

But knew he would have to take it.

As the sun set upon the seas,

The winds of change came blowing,

He knew the time had come

For that final last deployment 

A lone bird gliding circles,

Not the usual gulls or birds,

But a lone eagle mighty and great.

To guide the way to the pearly gates

His shipmates waited patiently

To throw the lines and set her sail

For this shipmates final voyage

Was about to set sail.

Angels waited at the dock,

Waiting at the final berth,

To guide him

Finally, home.

A great Man once said that

He knew each time a sparrow falls.

So now Dear Lord hear our cries

and feel our pain for this time... it was an Eagle.

Today I was told my Shipmate, my Friend, Mark finally lost the war,

Passing away yesterday.


Fair Winds and Following Seas My good friend.

You fought the good fight

But this time you couldn't win.

Peace be with you and Andi and the kids.

Sleep well my friend.

For I know you will be watching over us all….

New Tax Form

Thought for the day: As income tax time approaches, did you ever notice: When you put the two words "The" and "IRS" together it spells "THEIRS"?

OK This is REALLY Getting Stupid.

In the news today.
1200 Yard tunnel into US from Mexico found.
Well not only was the tunnel found, so was 2 TONS of Marijuana inside. Obviously this is a problem. And it's been there for a while. According to the story, it has lighting, vents even pumps to pump out water that gets in.
Hey but that's not all! This is one of 15 that have been found since 9/11. Follow the link to see the story.
Think that's bad, The following story was mentioned to me and had to comment. It's Not just in California. Texas has the Mexican Military bringing the crap across, along with the illegals, and getting into Gun fights with the cops and Border Patrol. But you didn't hear that one on the National News. Because it is getting covered up.
It is getting so bad that a Mexican Government Agency was going to give out MAPS of the border, with the best places to get into the US UNDETECTED.
Gun fights, drugs, illegal immigrants. Why don't we just annex the damn place and get it over with. It would be cheaper than this shit.
Plus if they are coming in with guns now, why can 't we just shoot 'em?
Oh I forgot.. We can't do something like that. We would be breaking someones Civil Liberties and the ACLU would sue us. Or we would get arrested for shooting someone with that good ol' shotgun the granddaddy gave you.....
What ever happened to the 2h Amendment? You know the one that says we have the RIGHT to bear arms in the protection of our country and it's borders!!

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."


"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them." (Richard Henry Lee, Virginia delegate to the Continental Congress, initiator of the Declaration of Independence, and member of the first Senate, which passed the Bill of Rights.)

"The great object is that every man be armed . . . Everyone who is able may have a gun." (Patrick Henry, in the Virginia Convention on the ratification of the Constitution.)

"The advantage of being armed . . . the Americans possess over the people of all other nations . . . Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several Kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." (James Madison, author of the Bill of Rights, in his Federalist Paper No. 46.)
I think that we have to remember what it's like to protect ourselves and our borders. Maybe if our law enforcement officers weren't so damn scared of prosecution for using there weapons and the states weren't so tight assed about it, maybe just maybe there would be allot of things that would not be happening.
Just my opinion.......

Bad JB..

Here it is, half way through January and I haven't updated since last year....
Bad Bad JB.....
Just lazy I guess. New Years is like going to work after vacation..
Just can't get into it.
But I usually do get to it sooner or later...
Well that time is now.
Back to ranting about life.....
Did anyone notice how many morons are in the news lately?
The 3 punks in South Florida. Beating up homeless people.. Damn we are big guys now....
They will be big in prison.....
Mayor of New Orleans.... CHOCOLATE New Orleans!!!! Be real people..How racist can you get.
Why are we spending $500 million dollars to send a probe to Pluto? Who cares......We can't live there so why bother.....Will it tell us ANYTHING??
Why are we worried about a lawyer in Georgia? Hostage? ( I just love lawyers, can' t you tell)
Was anyone sorry to see Indy loose Sunday? I wasn't...Tired of hearing how good Payton is.
He is probably going to be another Dan Marino...Lots of good playing but no ring....
The ACLU. Does anyone REALLY care what they are doing?
Did anyone notice Al Gore in the news again? I really didn't either.......
Who really cares about the Golden Globes, awards etc? Do you like the movie or show you watched? Who really cares to listen to 3 hours of people praising themselves. Want my attention? Praise someone who deserves it... or do something worth deserving the praise.
How can we call a 2 year old for jury duty? Sounds to me like another stupid ass behind the computer. Must have a law degree......
What's the big deal with executing a 76 year old? He did the crime..Now he has done the time..
So he was old...
$500,000 grant to produce a machine to take the smell out of hog manure....what a waste of money. It's shit people, it's supposed to stink......
Until later folks........
