Gruntessa and I just got back from a super secret graduation ceremony on the left coast where we got to watch newly minted killing machines being cranked out at places like MCRD and Coronado, where the control tower at Halsey Field (pictured below) watches over sailboats and endless Blackhawk helicopter training flights alike.
Of course, we can’t talk about it, because our Harvard educated overlords think it’s a great idea to train the most effective fighting force in the world, make them killing machines, teach them to fear nothing, and then tell them they can’t mention any of it on Facebook for fear that some pimply-faced, teenage ISIS recruit might do a camel drive-by and hurt them.
I don’t know. I’m just nostalgic for a time when our leaders weren’t such pussies, you know? I’d prefer to allow our young fighting men to have a little pride. But, anyway, in token obedience to that command, I’ll just show some random photos of random dudes we saw in San Diego. No relation or anything.
But one last rant before I go. This particular random Marine private, above, who may or may not be any relation, really wanted some good Mexican food after losing about as much weight in boot camp as your average Auschwitz resident. Eager to grant him that wish, we took him to a snazzy place on the water down by the harbor called Coasterra, which is Spanish for “Coastal Dirt.” The food was good, but there was a big sign stating that, “due to the avocado shortage,” there would be no fresh guacamole or avocado dishes.
That’s awesome. The great state of California, America’s bread basket, the Avocado State killed all their avocado trees (and almond trees and vineyards, etc.) by denying the Central Valley farmers water in order to pretend to save a smelt fish. Well done, hippies. Nice going Jerry Brown. You blame it on the drought, but there’ve been droughts in CA throughout history. Your real problem is the Democrat crime family infestation. Without guacamole, the tide of immigration from the south might turn the other way, but that won’t solve anything while Democrats maintain their stranglehold on the state, and life continues to suck there. The rest of us will just get our avocados from Mexico.
