    The Navajo Indians recruited during WWII to provide communications using the Navajo language completely baffled the Japanese. Several years ago I had the blessing to hear a talk from one of the code talkers. Hats off to you all who made a difference!

    If you say it in a valley girl voice, you’ll see that it’s spelled exactly as required.

    KBMWRS What did the moron say today?

    I've been on the reservation that they procured them from. The McDonalds has the story with pictures of them being bussed out. Being on Indian land is a different experience. Their own police force and they DO enforce their speed limits.

    I dunno...I think my wife is one of them. When the wife talks to me, it seems like hearing a foreign language because I can't understand a word she says. I think she expects me to read her mind....

    You hear her?
    I have learned to tune her out, she thinks it is hearing loss and wants to know when I am getting a hearing aid. ;)

    dont forget that any crime committed on the reservation can be prosecuted in three different courts, starting with the indian court, then the feds get a crack at you if they want, and then the state gets a crack at you, and since they are all different jurisdictions, double jeopardy does not apply.
