Whadya Think About Thet ..

The Colorado thong bandits got caught; well actually, they turned themselves in.  I like British News, I was over there tonight and checking around and they kind of “share their news” with everyone.  Everything or most everything in the USA is copyrighted and all that, makes it difficult to just lift it and put it on the page, because of “legal issues.” 

Contrary to popular opinion, some of these folks take it personally when you steal their stuff for your page.  Pays to be careful.  The Brit’s on the other hand are not all that particular:  Here is the linkif you wish to read the article.

O’bammer got the nod from the Dem’s and now we might have a shot of having a president that is fluent in at least one language.  The Republicans are considering a Bush replacement.  I hear they have found a guy in a tree outside of Austin, Texas, making guttural sounds, and they are trying to coach him down with an apple, will run him in November with Connie …. The Alternative Ticket thing I suppose.

Received some interesting stuff in the mail this past week, and the old “Watch Your Lic. Tag Spammer” is making the rounds again.  This time it has morphed into something a little bit different, it is a “State Trooper” that is advising everyone about it instead of a “State Agency” (un-named of course).  Why are people so stupid (and eager) as to pass this bogus garbage onto their friends and families, is beyond me.

Well at least I did not receive any of those moronic “Top Five Lists” this week that was a god-send.  Emails are such a wonderful source of information.  For instance, did you know that, given unlimited access to a source of mice, a cat will kill fifteen of the little suckers before it finally stops.  Sort of like the U.S. Government, given unlimited access to a country, it will kill millions of its citizens in order to obtain the natural resources.

Watching this television program and it is about prison, really interesting.  We have it seems, reached a new pinnacle in this country, we now have the proud distinction of having more people locked up than any other country in the world.  And that doesn’t count all those poor suckers down in Gitmo, Cuba, or our secret prisons that do not exist, in Europe. (The Rumsfield Ramada’s) 

So this interviewer is talking to this inmate, who killed five people in one home and received life in prison.  And he says to the guy, “Why did you do it?” and the convict takes a moment to think about it and then replies …  “They’s all home.”

 All I could think of after that was, “Thank God for prisons!”

A man in Sidney, Nebraska, accused of hitting his girlfriend on the head with a metal bucket will not be tried on a charge of using a deadly weapon.  A judge threw out the charge after concluding the bucket could not have killed or seriously injured the woman.  A charge of second-degree domestic assault against the defendant now stands.

Now I don’t know about you, but having someone slam me in the head with a METAL BUCKET would be a tad bit uncomfortable, and I would venture to say in my limited experience on the subject, it certainly could be lethal?  Having been on the receiving end of a fryin’ pan moving at breakneck speed, I can testify that “steel on numbskull” just isn’t conducive to middle age wellness. 

It also produces what is known in Oklahoma as a “pretty good goose-egg” on your head.  When you turn and see her approaching at warp speed, hit the deck, fall down, and play dead.

Taking all of this one step further, what do you suppose the ruling would be if the attorney was to take the female judge out into the parking lot, have her bend over, and then give her one or two shots with this metal bucket?  Smart money would say the ruling would be a lot different.  I ought to start a file on “Stupid Pixilated Judges” it wouldn’t take long to fill it up and it would increase my total word count immensely in the future.

You see the picture this week, where some guy outside of Denver says an “alien peeked into his bedroom window?”  It has been the talk of the town all week long.  Kind of hard to believe, journey across eons of time and space to peek into some window? 

Once in the late sixties, I was out in the desert in Southern Arizona and a UFO landed right next to my picnic table in the rest area.  Four of these little dudes, about three inches tall, got out of the spaceship.  Freaked me out, I said to them, “Wow!  Are you guys really three inches tall?” and the first one said, “Nah man, we is just far away.”

Had me going there for a little while.  But of course in those days I was “inhaling a lot.”



Dog Packs & Gators

Axel Foley is coming back!

If Indiana Jones can make a successful comeback after almost 20 years, why not the Beverly Hills Cop?  Paramount Pictures has given the go-ahead for a fourth installment of its “Beverly Hills Cop” franchise, with Eddie Murphy on board to return to the role that launched his movie career, the studio said this past week.  Keep a sharp eye out for “Rocky 76” coming to a Theater near you this fall.

Name something that 20% of American’s have NOT done.  Hard to believe, but I read it just this past weekend.  You are going to be surprised.  Click here for the answer.

Recently a friend of mine in Nevada turned down a job as an RV Technician because of the long commute to work and the high price of gasoline.  Smart move.  I understand now that they are predicting 305,000 less units to be produced in this country this year because of the fuel shortage/crisis.  Long time RV manufacturers have closed their doors in recent months. 

Alfa Leisure, Western RV and National RV all have shut down this year, starting in April.  There will possibly be more as the year wears on, this thing is like an Iceberg, we are just seeing part of it, the majority is still out of sight. 

By the way, if you are coming thru Oklahoma, “buckle up” and make shore you has yo’ papers, speed cops are writing tickets left and right.  Figures, gasoline tax revenues are shrinking, so they will write MORE tickets in order to make up the shortfall in revenues.  This should please our Governor and of course, all our friends in the Insurance Industry.

June is traditionally the month reserved for weddings and reunions.  We have applied to AAA Road Service for a membership.  Figuring it would be cheaper to have our truck towed to the event than drive it.  Don’t feel so awfully bad, in some places in Europe they are paying prices exceeding $11 a gallon which would drive me insane. 

My wife on the same token, would venture, “that would be a short trip.” 

Unbelievable, but it is true.  I am not doing all that well at $4 per now.  At $11 per gallon, well, that is enough for me to slink into the bathroom, fill the tub with warm water, lite some candles, turn on some soft music, and slit my wrists!  I will walk before I pay that kind of money for motor fuel. 

I will sit at home with my cob-webs and my attitude.  Check it out.  Now where did I put that bus schedule?

Someone needs to bring me up to speed on this.  Why is it, exactly, that Guam and Puerto Rico play a part in our national elections?  They are not states, nor are they afforded the rights of states (elected officials in the house/senate) why are they included in the political process?

Recently came across this.  Dog Pack Attacks Gator In FloridaAt times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.

The alligator, one of the oldest and ultimate predators, normally considered the ‘apex predator’, can still fall victim to implemented ‘team work’ strategy, made possible due to the tight knit social structure and ‘survival of the pack mentality’ bred into the canines.

What an incredible sight.  Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the gator preventing it from breathing, while another dog has a hold on the tail to keep it from thrashing. The third dog attacks the soft underbelly of the gator.

Be forewarned … This is not for the squeamish
