Tax Day 2014

WHAT?! NO SWIMMING POOL OR VACATION AGAIN THIS YEAR!  
FUCK YOU, UNCLE SAM!

Yet again we lose our savings to a bunch of fucking ass-clowns who punish those who work hard and reward those who fucking don't!

So in closing, fuck you Uncle Sam and have a nice day!

Medal of Honor Monday: Vernon J. Baker


"For extraordinary heroism in action on 5 and 6 April 1945, near Viareggio, Italy.   Then Second Lieutenant Baker demonstrated outstanding courage and leadership in destroying enemy installations, personnel, and equipment during his company's attack against a strongly entrenched enemy in mountainous terrain.  When his company was stopped by the concentration of fire from several machine gun emplacements, he crawled to one position and destroyed it, killing three Germans.  Continuing forward, he attacked an enemy observation post and killed two occupants.  With the aid of one of his men, Lieutenant Baker attacked two more machine gun nests, killing or wounding the four enemy soldiers occupying these positions.  He then covered the evacuation of the wounded personnel of his company by occupying an exposed position and drawing the enemy's fire.  On the following night Lieutenant Baker voluntarily led a battalion advance through enemy mine fields and heavy fire toward the division objective.  Second Lieutenant Baker's fighting spirit and daring leadership were an inspiration to his men and exemplify the highest traditions of the Armed Forces."

From Second Lieutenant Vernon J. Baker's Medal of Honor citation, awarded on January 13, 1997.

"The Star" aka "Zvezda"

A group of Soviet scouts infiltrate the front line and are tasked with finding the location of a build-up of German armor.  Can these scouts be sneaky bastards and call in fire on the massing Fascist armor or will they be caught and dealt with?!  This is your classic Hollywood WWII flick, Russian style.  Its not to heavy and has some great action in it so swing by and check out a TV commercial for it and see what you think.

Go get 'em, Red!

"The Bunker"

This TV movie tells the tale of the last days of Hitler and those who accompanied him within his Berlin bunker.  Its a pretty good flick with a somewhat accurate take on what happened taken from interviews of the survivors.  Couldn't find a trailer for it but you can watch the whole thing here.

I was surprised at how many of the occupants survived the Russian assault into the city to even tell their tale after the war.

"Wake Island"

 
This is the tale of the brave Marines and civilians who took the brunt of the Japanese's expansion in the Pacific in the early days after the attack on Pearl Harbor.  After sinking 2 destroyers, a submarine, 24 airplanes and over a thousand Jap invaders, the defenders of this tiny speck on the map succumbed to the might of the Japanese Empire.  Check out the trailer and see Hollywood's take on a modern day Alamo.

Slap them Japs, boys!

"Dick Tracy"

Police detective, Dick Tracy is on the case and he is up against a slew of the city's worst criminals this time.  Can Tracy save the day or will crime run rampant in the city?!  Now this was pretty fun for me.  I liked the old Batman TV show and this is a lot like that with over the top characters and bat crazy sets.  It holds a bit true to the classic 30's comic strips too so check out the trailer and see what you think.

Good time for the whole famiy,
Brian

Medal of Honor Monday: Thomas A. Baker


"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty at Saipan, Mariana Islands, 19 June to 7 July 1944.  When his entire company was held up by fire from automatic weapons and small-arms fire from strongly fortified enemy positions that commanded the view of the company, Sgt. (then Pvt.) Baker voluntarily took a bazooka and dashed alone to within 100 yards of the enemy.  Through heavy rifle and machine gun fire that was directed at him by the enemy, he knocked out the strong point, enabling his company to assault the ridge.  Some days later while his company advanced across the open field flanked with obstructions and places of concealment for the enemy, Sgt. Baker again voluntarily took up a position in the rear to protect the company against surprise attack and came upon 2 heavily fortified enemy pockets manned by 2 officers and 10 enlisted men which had been bypassed.  Without regard for such superior numbers, he unhesitatingly attacked and killed all of them.  Five hundred yards farther, he discovered 6 men of the enemy who had concealed themselves behind our lines and destroyed all of them.  On 7 July 1944, the perimeter of which Sgt. Baker was a part was attacked from 3 sides by 3,000 to 5,000 Japanese.  During the early stages of this attack, Sgt. Baker was seriously wounded but he insisted on remaining in the line and fired at the enemy at ranges sometimes as close as 5 yards until his ammunition ran out.  Without ammunition and with his own weapon battered to uselessness from hand-to-hand combat, he was carried about 50 yards to the rear by a comrade, who was then himself wounded.  At this point Sgt. Baker refused to be moved any farther stating that he preferred to be left to die rather than risk the lives of any more of his friends.  A short time later, at his request, he was placed in a sitting position against a small tree.  Another comrade, withdrawing, offered assistance. Sgt. Baker refused, insisting that he be left alone and be given a soldier's pistol with its remaining 8 rounds of ammunition.  When last seen alive, Sgt. Baker was propped against a tree, pistol in hand, calmly facing the foe.  Later Sgt. Baker's body was found in the same position, gun empty, with 8 Japanese lying dead before him.  His deeds were in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Army."

From Sgt. Addison E. Baker's Medal of Honor citation, awarded on May 9, 1945.

"The Wedding Song" aka "Le chant des mariƩes"


Two friends, a Jew and Muslim, are ripped apart by the politics of war and religion during the Nazi occupation of Tunisia.  With both worried about their uncertain lives ahead, can they still be friends in a world that won't allow it or will the taint of fascism, racism and war end their friendship forever?  Now this isn't my normal fare of movie going and I only really checked it out because it was set in WWII but it wasn't all that bad.  Interesting insight of a region of people that are overlooked during the WWII conflict.  Check out the trailer and see what you think.

Not a bad flick,

"Automatic Weapons: American vs. German"

vs.
How did the MP40 fair next to the M1A1 Thompson?  What about the MG34 vs. the M1919 Browning?  Well this wartime training film will show what most American and German small arms can do on the battlefield.

Keep your heads down!

"1945 Spoils of War"

Well here is another Nazi rape fetishists wet dream.  The flick is full of hot women getting it from the retreating Germans.  Movie offers nothing but the kinda shit you expect so if that's your kinda trash take a gander here.  If not, I congratulate you for not being a sicko freak!

More of the same Italian Nazi-Exploitation porn that we all know and hate,

Medal of Honor Monday: Addison E. Baker


"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action with the enemy on August 1, 1943. On this date he led his command, the 93d Heavy Bombardment Group, on a daring low-level attack against enemy oil refineries and installations at Ploesti, Rumania. Approaching the target, his aircraft was hit by a large caliber antiaircraft shell, seriously damaged and set on fire. Ignoring the fact he was flying over terrain suitable for safe landing, he refused to jeopardize the mission by breaking up the lead formation and continued unswervingly to lead his group to the target upon which he dropped his bombs with devastating effect. Only then did he leave formation, but his valiant attempts to gain sufficient altitude for the crew to escape by parachute were unavailing and his aircraft crashed in flames after his successful efforts to avoid other planes in formation. By extraordinary flying skill, gallant leadership and intrepidity, Lt. Col. Baker rendered outstanding, distinguished, and valorous service to our Nation."

From Lieutenant Colonel Addison E. Baker's Medal of Honor citation, awarded on March 11, 1944.

Armor from above?!

A short article on the idea of the flying tank.  Them para boys would've had some rightful support in the enemy's rear if they could have just gotten it right.  I guess sticking them into gliders was the next best thing but it sure would have scared the shit outta most seeing enemy armor falling from the sky en masse.

If it had only worked,
