IN MEMORIAM: Randy “Macho Man” Savage (1955 – 2011) 20 May 2011 @ 12:34Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Not much of a WWF fan, but I know Macho Man Savage was a good guy.
Reports out of Florida (from the TMZ article) said he had a massive heart attack while driving his Jeep Wrangler, crossed over the opposing lane of traffic and hit a tree head on. Both he and his wife of one year were wearing seat belts. She is fine.
Being that the General has done rotations in hospital Emergency Rooms, he can say with a fair amount of certainty that the autopsy will not be pretty.
Prayers go out to Mrs. Savage and his fans.
IN MEMORIAM: Elizabeth Taylor 1932 – 2011 23 Mar 2011 @ 07:30Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Screen legend, one of the original Hollywood divas, and two-time Oscar winner, Elizabeth Taylor passed away today. She was 79.
Much could be said about her, much already has been, but that’s for the gossip blogs and E! not here. We prefer to remember her from her days as “Cleopatra“. She will be missed.
God rest her soul.
IN MEMORIAM: Frank Buckles 1901 – 2011 28 Feb 2011 @ 17:28Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
All flags one the Southern Command HQ are hereby ordered to half staff, and are to remain so for the next seven days as we honor our fallen veteran Frank Woodruff Buckles.
He didn’t seek the spotlight, but when Frank Buckles outlived every other American who’d served in World War I, he became what his biographer called “the humble patriot” and final torchbearer for the memory of that fading conflict.
Buckles enlisted in World War I at 16 after lying about his age. He died Sunday on his farm in Charles Town, nearly a month after his 110th birthday. He had devoted the last years of his life to campaigning for greater recognition for his former comrades, prodding politicians to support a national memorial in Washington and working with friend and family spokesman David DeJonge on a biography.
Heaven is certainly one citizen bigger tonight. We here at the Southern Command salute our fallen soldier and ask that God now keep safe that which the earth has given up.
Southern Command update 26 Sep 2010 @ 21:15Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam, Life in the Southern Command HQ , comments closed
All, sorry for the absence but we here at the Southern Command are still in mourning and the base flag is at half-staff for the remainder of the month as we all but primarily the Generalette deals with the loss of her father just over a week ago. His passing did not come as a surprise, rather it was a welcome release to a worldly disease that has no known cure…Alzheimer’s. Actually that wasn’t the primary cause, a case of double pneumonia was.
Her father was 79 years young, yet carried the burden of Alzheimer’s for well over five years…not being able to speak for the last 18 months or so of his life. He was a Christian, and a devout one at that. From a Sunday School teacher to serving as a deacon until he was diagnosed with the disease. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, their three children (which includes the Generalette) as well as five grandchildren. God has welcomed a great man back home and now that man can celebrate along with all the other saints in Christ for the remainder of eternity.
Now, on to other Command business.
Folks, start doing your research on a bill that has been introduced to committee with the audacious name of the “Debt Free America Act”. Also known as HR-4646, the bill on the surface will attempt to do such things as eliminate the national individual income tax, refundable and nonrefundable personal tax credits, and even the alternative minimum tax and replace it with a “transaction tax”. The initial level is set at 1%.
But here’s where the nefarious progressive left take something that has the potential to correct things and turns it into something hideously evil. The bill also intends to “tax” ALL financial transactions from both you and I as individuals (things like deposits and withdrawals from checking and savings accounts, ATMs, everything) as well as corporate financial transactions. And, of course Congress can “adjust” the percentage as they see fit.
This bill has corruption written all over it. As if that isn’t a new concept coming out of the boys inside the DC beltway. Do your research folks, if your House rep is FOR this bill then if they are up for re-election it’s time they go find out what the job market is really like. This is one bill this country DOESN’T need.
Remembering and Honoring those who were lost … 11 Sep 2010 @ 08:27Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
… on this day 9 years ago.
I’m not typically one for overt commercialism in a situation like this, but below is a video of a commercial that Budweiser aired only ONCE back when the tragedy happened. No words are spoken, just the Clydesdales, some music, and one powerful image at the end. See what you think.
Robert Novak:  1931 – 2009 18 Aug 2009 @ 11:25Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Multiple sources have started reporting that Bob Novak, conservative syndicated columnist has passed away at his home at the age of 78.
Prayers go out to his wife and family.
Billy Mays: 1958 – 2009 29 Jun 2009 @ 08:48Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Well, they say things happen in
threes bunches. And now we have the third another media personality to pass on. (H/T to HDD)
What can you say about Billy, well he certainly was “energetic” on camera. I didn’t get the chance to see the reality show on Discovery Channel he hosted called “Pitchmen”, so I’m not sure what he was like off camera. What I can say is that it is tragic if the way this article is suggesting turns out to be the actual cause of death.
Once again, the condolences of the Southern HQ go out to the Mays family and friends.
Michael Jackson: 1958-2009 26 Jun 2009 @ 08:37Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Not got much to say about this one since TMZ has extensive coverage, Misha has posted his thoughts, Darth’s secret lover posted her comments, and the lame stream pukers have posted on this ad nauseum already.
Yes, he was a talented singer…before he went WACKO. Misha got it right in the title of his post, “Wacko Jacko”. But being who we are here at the Southern HQ, we still offer our condolences to the Jackson family at their loss.
Farrah Fawcett:  1947 – 2009 25 Jun 2009 @ 11:56Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Information has appeared on the radar that former “Charlie’s Angel” star Farah Fawcett has passed away. Reports from earlier today say friends and family had been called to her bedside to say their goodbyes. Similar to Ed McMahon, Farah has been battling serious health issues and as we can see she has now been called home.
Once again, the Southern Command HQ sends out our condolences to the family.
Ed McMahon:  1923 – 2009 24 Jun 2009 @ 11:19Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Well, another TV icon has passed on. Most of you I’m sure have heard that Ed McMahon passed away yesterday at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center from complications of numerous afflictions. All of us knew Ed. From his days as the sidekick for Johnny Carson on “The Tonight Show” to hosting “Star Search”, and the ubiquitous commercials for the Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes. You can read more here.
The members of the Southern HQ extend our prayers and condolences to the McMahon family.
