TBT - SSG Corey Calkins Ladies and gentlemen, gather round the campfire as we light up your field day celebrations with a celebration of our own. That’s right, it’s time to throw this thing back to February 2010. A simpler time, a time before David Petraeus locked his knees at a senate hearing, and back when you could still tinkle on dead Taliban. omgtakemebackkkk⠀ ⠀ Today we’re talking about every Marine from 6th Reggie’s favorite little town in Afghanistan’s Helmand Province. marjahmarjahmarjah⠀ ⠀ What many of you may not know, however, is that them Gyrenes weren’t the only ones with their dicks in the dirt giving Terry the ol’ whatfor. Case in point, the subject of today’s OAF TBT; Staff Sgt Corey Calkins aka CashMoneyCorey⠀ ⠀ While serving as a weapons sergeant for ODA 3121, Cake Crushin’ Calkins was part of the coalition push through Marjah. On 18 February 2010, he led an assault of ANA troops against a platoon-sized element of Taliban fuckbois at a key intersection near the bazaar in Marjah. While under intense small arms, RPG, and mortar fire, Corey the Cockslapper charged the enemy position like a robust lesbian hopped up on Jack Daniels in a domestic dispute; inspiring his ANA troops to follow and overwhelm the Taliban position. TakeTheirShoes⠀ ⠀ After locking down the intersection and surrounding positions, Corey continued to fuck Terry six ways to Sunday by voluntarily continuing to drive the man-titty-havin’ soyboys out of smalls arms and RPG range so three critically wounded Marines could be evacuated. He aggressively pursued the enemy hotter than the homies in Tekashi 69’s cell block are pursuing his butthole. LemmeTugOnYoDickALilWhile⠀ ⠀ For his actions that day, SSG Calkins was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and earned himself a lifetime supply of bummed cigs, fat pinches of dip, and near-beers from every Marine in the Ghan.

A little bit of a long read, but its worth it: What is the laziest thing you've 3 ever done? I was once on a US military ship, having breakfast in the wardroom (officers lounge) when the Operations Officer (OPS) walks in. This guy was the definition of NOT a morning person; he's still half asleep, bleary eyed... basically a zombie with a bagel. He sits down across from me to eat his bagel and is just barely conscious. My back is to the outboard side of the ship, and the morning sun is blazing in one of the portholes putting a big bright-ass circle of light right on his barely conscious face. He's squinting and chewing and basically just remembering how to be alive for today. It's painful to watch. But then zombie-OPS stops chewing, slowly picks up the phone, and dials the bridge. In his well-known I'm-still-totally-asleep voice, he says "heeeey. It's OPS. Could you... shift our barpat. yeah, one six five. Thanks." And puts the phone down. And then he just sits there. Squinting. Waiting. And then, ever so slowly, I realize that that big blazing spot of sun has begun to slide off the zombie's face and onto the wall behind him. After a moment it clears his face and he blinks slowly a few times and the brilliant beauty of what I've just witnessed begins to overwhelm me. By ordering the bridge to adjust the ship's back-and-forth patrol by about 15 degrees he's changed our course just enough to reposition the sun off of his face. He's literally just redirected thousands of tons of steel and hundreds of people so that he could get the sun out of his eyes while he eats his bagel. I am in awe. He slowly picks up his bagel and for a moment I'm terrified at the thought that his own genius may escape him, that he may never appreciate the epic briliance of his laziness (since he's not going to wake up for another hour). But between his next bites he pauses, looks at me, and gives me the faintest, sly grin, before returning to gnaw slowly on his zombie bagel. A little bit of a long read, but its worth it

Doctors, nurses or pharmacy staff at federal hospitals — the vast majority within the VA system — siphoned away controlled substances for their own use or street sales, or drugs intended for patients simply disappeared. Aggravating the problem is that some VA hospitals have been lax in tracking drug supplies. Congressional auditors said spot checks found four VA hospitals skipped monthly inspections of drug stocks or missed other requirements. Investigators said that signals problems for VA’s entire network of more than 160 medical centers and 1,000 clinics, coming after auditor warnings about lax oversight dating back to at least 2009. “Drug theft is an area of concern,” Jeffrey Hughes, the VA’s acting assistant inspector general for investigations, told AP. He said the monthly inspections could help the VA uncover potential discrepancies and root out crime. VA clinics are overwhelmed not only with corruption of bureaucrats, but also with banal petty theft at the expense of American veterans. The VA is exactly the ministry, which requires the most thorough shake-up of personnel and total cleaning from those whose reputation leaves even the slightest doubt.

Pierre Omidyar, the billionaire co-founder of eBay, has announced that he will donate $500,000 to fund a project in Kenya that will give thousands of people a guaranteed regular income, with no strings attached. _ The money will be used to make cash transfers to more than 26,000 people in 200 villages in Kenya, with about 6,000 of those people receiving a long-term basic income for 12 years. _ The non-profit has received praise from international development organizations and practitioners as an effective and data-backed way of reducing poverty. Despite potential criticism, several studies have shown that, when the poor receive cash directly, they overwhelmingly spend it on things that improve their incomes, security, health, and psychological well-being, as opposed to spending it on vices such as alcohol or tobacco.

And we can't keep forever, for that is for the future, unborn, Accept the moment for what it is, embrace it for as you do you keep the fire alive, The same fire that is your own existence, The same infinite energy continues to provide, Even though we are mostly made of liquid, We are solidly woven into the fabric of a gas, as we inhale inspiration and exhale expectation, we realise that time has passed. chakabars: "We are in the universe and the universe is in us" Let the fire burn...

an-Nu’man ibn Basheer (May Allah be pleased with him), narrated: 'I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) say, "Truly, in the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if it is whole, all the body is whole and which, if it is diseased, all of the body is diseased. Truly, it is the heart."' (Related by Bukhari and Muslim) - Life can be perplexing sometimes, like a very detailed jigsaw puzzle. One that contains many overwhelming pieces that we feel the need to place together alone, including a few other important pieces. - However this is where we go wrong, I can't explain how many times I am guilty of this myself. You and I, are not always responsible for putting all the pieces in the correct places, because Allah helps us along the way. That doesn't mean we must not make effort to put together the vital parts of the puzzle correctly, but there is a point where we must also have Tawakkul to fill in the missing gaps, and who greater is there to add the final touches than Al-Mutakabbir himself? - We often do more harm by trying to fix this puzzle on our own, due to expecting immediate results. And often this is why we feel doors close when we seek help from the creation, rather than The Creator. - Don't be afraid to ask Allah for help at any stage, and never give up on His mercy. Afterall, it is He who puts all the pieces of our affairs in their correct places, at the best time according to what He has already willed. - Of course at times we will deal with the calamities and heartaches, making it difficult and frustrating to solve the puzzle. But a few well placed pieces can go a long way. Seek Allah's help through prayers and sabr, and continue to show Allah your effort and it will all fall into place. And remember we are truly complete when we find peace in loving Allah and trusting Him. May this state of harmony ultimately lead you and I, in reaching our hopes and goals. @gardenofthepious: Allah's Helpls Near. an-Nu’man ibn Basheer (May Allah be pleased with him), narrated: 'I heard the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) say, "Truly, in the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if it is whole, all the body is whole and which, if it is diseased, all of the body is diseased.

A reminder!! “Women of color warriors are constant warriors who dig in bare earth to feed the hungry child, who pray for health the bedside of the sick when there is no medicine, who fashion a toy to make a poor child smile, who take to the streets demanding freedom, freedom, freedom against armed police. Every act of survival by a woman of color is an act of resistance to the war. No soldier fights harder than a woman warrior for she fights for total change, for a new order in a world in which can finally rest and love.” -Barbara Omolade, The Rising Song of African American Women: Son of Baldwin 27 mins There is one demographic that you cannot blame for the nightmare we're about to experience: BLACK WOMEN. Black women OVERWHELMINGLY voted for Clinton. Like 94% of black women voted for her. No other demographic comes close to that percentage. None. Black women consistently show up for folks who do not EVER reciprocate. I don't know what a single one of us has ever done to deserve that loyalty.

If you are reading this then you are awake, be thankful for that. You have thoughts, fears and many emotions, just like me. You have two lungs and a heart beating out the rhythm of your life, as you thumb your phone. You aren't sure if you are on the right path and because of this you are scared of death. Not actually scared of being killed or dying, but you are scared of not fulfilling your potential, you are scared of not being here anymore and life not being what you thought it would. Don't be scared, as fear is an illusion. You have a purpose and will discover it. Enjoy your life up until that time. You are beautiful, let no magazine or opinions shelter you from that. Love is everywhere and you are a part of that love. Even if you are single right now and feeling lonely, or you are struggling to love yourself. You are special and you are the reason that I am writing this. So listen to this... Everything is as it should be, you are single because you need to discover who you really are, you are in a relationship because you have found your soulmate and you are going to spend the rest of your life with them. You are powerful and you can do anything that you put your mind to. Your dreams are premonitions and waking up to live them is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Your relationships with others are as they need to be, they will grow or shrink over time, that's fine. Don't be anxious, you will be ok, don't expect too much from situations, just be in the moments, let feelings come then go like friends and days that pass. Without you there is no life. Without your awareness of me... There is no I. Without your emotions, there is no point. Yet there is every reason to be happy. You exist in this form right now, go look in the mirror, now laugh at how ridiculous and overwhelming everything is. Smile because you are beautiful and you have your whole life ahead of you. Your creation is the reason we are here. Brothers and sisters of the universe. chakabars: When are we go understand that we are put on earth tolo If you are reading this then you are awake, be thankful for that.

Don't be scared, as fear is an illusion. You have a purpose and will discover it. Enjoy your life up until that time. You are beautiful, let no magazine or opinions shelter you from that. Love is everywhere and you are a part of that love. Even if you are single right now and feeling lonely, or you are struggling to love yourself. You are special and you are the reason that I am writing this. So listen to this... Everything is as it should be, you are single because you need to discover who you really are, you are in a relationship because you have found your soulmate and you are going to spend the rest of your life with them. You are powerful and you can do anything that you put your mind to. Your dreams are premonitions and waking up to live them is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Your relationships with others are as they need to be, they will grow or shrink over time, that's fine. Don't be anxious, you will be ok, don't expect too much from situations, just be in the moments, let feelings come then go like friends and days that pass. Without you there is no life. Without your awareness of me... There is no I. Without your emotions, there is no point. Yet there is every reason to be happy. You exist in this form right now, go look in the mirror, now laugh at how ridiculous and overwhelming everything is. Smile because you are beautiful and you have your whole life ahead of you. Your creation is the reason we are here. Brothers and sisters of the universe. chakabars

More Than Satisfying! @benaffleck definitely got it right * 2003, "Daredevil" (pre Marvel Cinematic Universe) 2006, "Hollywoodland" (as George Reeves) 2016 and Beyond, "Batman v Superman", "Suicide Squad", "Justice League" * Ben is an excellent Bruce Wayne and even better Batman. He is complex, layered and battles with overwhelming inner demons. Batfleck's version is a more complete take on the character for me, channelling the tortured Bruce and the weary Batman beautifully. As his character evolves within the DCEU, I see him more akin to "Batman: The Animated Series". A master detective, a genius-level intellect, unmatched fighting skills, and the use of a multitude of gadgets...Batfleck can truly go toe to toe against super-powered beings and supernatural adversaries.: YOU'RE NOT YOU WHEN YOURE HUNGRY!

According to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, it’s now only two and a half minutes to midnight. We’re talking about the Doomsday Clock, of course. This week, the BAS’s Science and Security Board moved the clock’s hands 30 seconds closer to midnight. Why, you ask?!? Excellent question! As stated in their 2017 Doomsday Clock press release: “Over the course of 2016, the global security landscape darkened as the international community failed to come effectively to grips with humanity’s most pressing existential threats, nuclear weapons and climate change … This already-threatening world situation was the backdrop for a rise in strident nationalism worldwide in 2016, including in a US presidential campaign during which the eventual victor, Donald Trump, made disturbing comments about the use and proliferation of nuclear weapons and expressed disbelief in the overwhelming scientific consensus on climate change …The board’s decision to move the clock less than a full minute — something it has never before done — reflects a simple reality: As this statement is issued, Donald Trump has been the US president only a matter of days …” What do you think? Let us know in the comments (and play nice!).: According to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, it’s now only two and a half minutes to midnight. We’re talking about the Doomsday Clock, of course.
