As to being vigilant, taking notice of my surroundings, and reporting suspicious items or activities, the only real difficulty in AREA 51 is taking notice of my surroundings because they seem to change with each additional glass of Johnny Walker Black.
In the case of threat level Orange, or Elevated, pilots immediately take the proper precautions as indicated below.
Older people, especially on Florida, are easily confused by the constant, changing of the threat alert colors. Many of the older men just use the color chart to select their pants color for the day as all the colors match white shoes. The elderly women use the charts as a guide for hair coloring.
Many of the older people blatantly reject the thought that terrorists will attack Florida. In a recent interview, Murray and Ethel Lipschitz declared that they are prepared to defend Miami Beach against any and all aggressors. Murray was recently fined for discharging a firearm in public when he fired off a salvo of rounds after mistakenly perceiving his wife's case of the walking farts as small arms fire.
Murray and Ethel Lipschitz at their regular post guarding the Lincoln Road Mall. In airports, I am always vigilant and I do take notice of my surroundings. If the person in front of me has a beard, especially if it's a woman, I become suspicious. If the man in front of me has a name that contains three k's, four n's, two h's and when spoken sounds like a person gagging with smoker's cough, I'll be checking his shoes for fuses.
Although the man may think that this is discrimination, he's wrong....it's profiling and I'll do it every time in the name of self preservation. If this offends him, tough shit! This is America and he can wear a towel on his head any time he wishes, but my suggestion to him is to wear a John Deere hat on travel days!

Picture Of The Day: Homeland Security, a term constantly on everyone's mind, is brought to life in today's pictures. Of course, the American Indian has been preaching this cause since day one and it hasn't caught on yet.
I assume the government will just keep allowing anyone and everyone to continue to entering the country, either legally or illegally, until we all have to find a new place to seek refuge. What goes around eventually comes around.
Nevertheless, sometimes you have to just sit back and laugh so that you don't end up with an ulcer. That's the motive behind today's pictures and I hope you enjoy them.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) My latest survey shows that 3 out of 4 people make up 75% of the world's population. 2) I believe men who purchase scam male enhancement products should also purchase health insurance that covers a frontal lobotomy. 3) My father always had remote controls for his television set, namely Brother Kirt and myself. 4) One thing that really taught me the difference between democracy and communism was my Army basic training in Fort Polk, Louisiana. 5) I truly believe that Democratic analyst James Carville (above left) is the illegitimate son of the weird kid who played the banjo in the Burt Reynolds film, "Deliverance." I also believe that pseudo democratic analyst Roland Martin (above right) owes his CNN job to affirmative action.
The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
A Texas cowboy and his bride ask the hotel desk clerk for a room, telling him they just got married that morning. The clerk says, "Congratulations! Would you like the bridal then?" The cowboy says, "No, thanks, I reckon I'll just hold her by the ears 'til she gets the hang of it." Gertie Goldberg was a 93 year old woman who was particularly despondent over the recent death of her husband Myron. She decided that she would just kill herself and join him in death. Thinking that it would be best to get it over with quickly, she took out Myron's old Army pistol and made the decision to shoot herself in the heart since it was so badly broken in the first place.
Not wanting to miss the vital organ and become a vegetable and a burden to someone, she called her doctor's office to inquire as to just exactly where the heart would be. The doctor said, "On a woman, the heart would be just below the left breast." Later that night, Gertie was admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound to her knee.
Two elderly ladies are sitting on the front porch, doing nothing. One lady turns and asks, "Do you still get horny?" The other replies, "Oh sure I do." The first old lady asks, "What do you do about it?" The second old lady replies, "I suck a lifesaver." After a few moments, the first old lady asks, "Who drives you to the beach?"
That's it for today my little windbreakers. More on Wednesday.
