Looks like the Koch brothers are gearing up to buy themselves a president.
The conservative Koch brothers' political network plans to spend $889 million during the 2016 election cycle, according to media reports out of the network's donor meeting being held early this week in California.

Although I don't have the numbers to cite this, it's reasonable to assume that a very large proportion of this will be used to buy airtime for "issue" ads and various local/state-level races.  It's a great argument for an end to paid-for airtime for political advertising, which would have the delightful side-effect of reducing the outsized impact of these modern-day oligarchs.

Not just "pretty cool", but totally awesome. Made my day.
 
Pretty cool story from 1975.
One of the more interesting carrier landings. - posted in Modern Warships: I imagine many of you are familiar with Operation Frequent Wind, the helicopter evacuation of civilians, American personnel, and other high risk targets during the close of the Vietnam War.

Some fine comedy from +Nato Green:
