... the Lexington Institute huh?    ???
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

We get our first wave of F-35's here at Luke AFB next month. I can't wait to see 'em fly.

The Lexington Institute has been called the "defense industry's pay-to-play ad agency", reflecting the fact that it receives substantial funding from military contractors and issues a steady stream of reports, usually favorable, about the performance and status of key weapons programs

We shoulda just bought a shitload bunch of Gripen and a few more F-22s:

1) The Raptors in case the Russians get cute with one of the only three Sukhoi T-50s that Russia will ever build now that their economy is shifting back to Tsar&Serf...

2) and the Gripen to take care of everything else.

Was reading in Air Forces Monthly that the USAF and Lockheed the are really pushing to get F-35  squadrons up and running. It seems like almost every country has redduced the number of aircraft they are buying. I wonder how many Canada will end up with ?

According to the Ottawa Citizen fewer than expected, and if we have a change of government in 2015 I think all bets are off..

At least in Canada, you should have an easier time keeping the fuel cool enough for the F-35 to use :P
