More severe weather in the Heart-Land last night a lot of noise and a lot of wind. Most of the heavy hitters went north of our home and I am thankful for that. We seem to be having a rash of tornados this year, nationwide the count is high, over 800. So if you are from overseas and you want to go “Storm Chasing” things are definitely in your favor, the storms are on the rise, and the American Dollar is in the economic dumpster. Come on over and get blown away on the cheap side.
What is the difference between a hurricane and a tornado? I don’t know, but somebody is gonna lose a trailer house.
Sort of been grousing around the net this morning, pushing the random blog button up there in the right hand corner and seeing where I will be magically transported to. Some of my locations this morning have been rather bizarre to say the least. There is a statistical theory that if you gave a million moneys typewriters and set them to work, they’d eventually come up with the complete works of Shakespeare.
Thanks to the Internet, and the random blog button, we now know this isn’t quite true.
Man this is gross. Olympia Washington has just passed a resolution concerning the parking of RV’s and motorhomes on the street. Some residents have complained of these campers taking up space on city streets, running generators all night long, and actually dumping raw sewage at some locations. The people in the campers say they would be homeless if it were not for the RV’s …
And once again, someone takes it on their own, to ruin it for the next guy.
Taking out the trash on a grand scale. Trash is starting to crowd paradise, so Hawaii is looking to ship its trash literally thousands of miles to dumpsites in Oregon, Idaho, and Washington State. Kind of makes sense, I mean, when you live on an island it is bound to pile up and become a problem. The shrink wrapped bales would make the 12-18 day voyage on barges to the mainland. They want to move 100,000 tons of the stuff for the next three to six years.
This is not going to sound politically correct or environmentally friendly, but I got to thinking, with the most active site in the world for volcano’s, why don’t they just dump the stuff into one of them and let nature incinerate it.
While we are on the subject of garbage. An Oklahoma Federal judge has shot down the New Oklahoma Immigration Law as “probably” unconstitutional? What in the world is that? Is it or is it not? Kind of like being “almost pregnant” if you ask me. This is the trouble with the court system, the judicial branch is supposed to rule on law, not write it. There is a distinct difference between commenting or presenting an opinion and legislating.
Too many of these judges seem to believe that the law is for everyone else, and their “opinions” (personal opinions) are for everyone.
She stated the law was “profiling” all Mexicans, and therefore, was restricting the rights of Mexicans that are here legally. So what is the beef? They stop me all the time to check for seatbelts, as pickup owners are terrible about NOT using them, but you don’t hear me whining about it. I just wear the seat belt. Same thing here, the “legal immigrants” have nothing to complain about.
First, it will help raise their rate of pay as the illegals are no longer here, to work for slave wages. Second, they are paying into the system just like everyone else, and removing these across the border, freeloading parasites, will in the end, cut down on the tax load.
This was a ruling for Big Business not for the people. It will “probably” come back to bite her in the butt one of these days. Another reason Oklahoma always comes off as a bunch of ignorant hillbillies and hicks, stupid crap like this, surely doesn’t help the issue any. Sooner or later, someone is going to find some guts to attack this problem and save this country from imploding.
Our only saving grace in all this might be we are not the only state or locale with whacked out judges, you don’t have to look all that far to find one that is worse than ours. A judge in New York recently jailed 46 people because of a cell phone that was ringing in his court room. He is now no longer a sitting judge. It appears that we “proably” have one too many around here too.
Two girls in Cedar Rapids Iowa are ahead of the game this morning. A court there ruled that their being detained by police and subsequently being “stripped searched” for protesting at a George W Bush rally was against the law, and their civil rights were violated. They were awarded $750,000 and it is a shame, a downright shame that the judgment didn’t come out of the pockets of Bush & Cheney personally. Under the guise of Free Speech, National Security and the Patriot Act, Bush has effectively squelched all dissent in this country.
The man looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front breast pocket. Then, the frog said, ‘What, are you nuts? Didn’t you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will give you sexual pleasures like you have never had.’
Have a great weekend.
