The once proud British Navy is now a shell of its former glory - bankrupt after the Bush-Blair adventures.
[Linked Image]
The once-Great British navy has put the aircraft carrier HMS Invincible up for
sale on an eBay-like website. It's a sad end for a proud 690-foot warship that
sailed Her Majesty's seas from 1980 to 2005, and took part in the Falklands,
Balkans and Iraq campaigns. Its crew of more than 1,000 piloted the ship's two-
dozen aircraft up to 7,000 nautical miles from home. It steamed at speeds
topping out at 28 knots, thanks to its four Rolls-Royce turbine engines (sorry -
- they've already been removed to power other ships in the fleet).

Just hang in there. The US carriers will be on the block shortly for money needed to support the welfare state, kind of like Britain.

Make a hell of a dive boat, but hard to get near the reef.

kelley, not really amazing and these camps have been around for a long time. In most cases they are less about homeless people in the true sense and more about alcoholism and drugs.
There are places that will help these people if they want to be helped but they would rather continue their destructive ways.

A friend of mind who owns a semi remote large waterfront property has had this problem of squatters for years. His mistake was not immediately chasing them off the property. It came to an end when the City got a court order for him to evict them and clean up the property. His costs where in the vicinity of $20,000 as he had to hire a backhoe and more than 20 large dumpsters of trash had to be removed and disposed of. The area is still a mess with what was not picked up.

I have first hand knowledge of what went on there and helped him through this. That was several months ago, now I purposely walk my dogs on this property and keep a watch out. On several occasions I had to ask them to move on even though we have blocked all paths and roads to this property. On one occasion recently I found an individual in a drug induced comatose state and I had to notify the local police.

It has nothing what so ever to do with Representative John Boehner except in Clover’s mind.
