The U.S. Capital

The U.S. Capital

The U.S. Capital where a lot of overgrown bad seed children claim to work; they should all be medicated and put away somewhere where they can do no more harm! While at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue is the spendthrift American President who in his first year in office has shown no interest in anything but the PERKS of the office.

Entertaining friends and celebrities, viewing movies before anyone else gets to see them, jetting his family around Europe showing them the sights that most Americans will never see, and while 85000 more Americans lost their jobs in December, Americans died in Afghanistan and were wrongly imprisoned in Iran and North Korea, and America came as close as we have been to another terrorist attack since 9/11, he spent two weeks living large in Hawaii all at the expense of the taxpayer.

Legendary HMS Victory Found

HMS Victory

HMS Victory

Tall ships and their history are a great love of mine so to me this is a fascinating discovery, the marine salvage company, Odyssey Marine Exploration appears to have found the jewel of 16th century (1744) British Navy. She was a beautiful ship and was lavished with 100 brass canons, carried much gold and supported a crew of 1100.
