The Verdict Is In … You Lose Again.

The U.S. Supreme Court just ruled that it’s unconstitutional for Louisiana to impose the death penalty on prisoners who have been convicted of raping children. What is this all about? I guess this is the last domino in the chain to fall; now even children are not held in high regards by the courts in this country.

Which might be why I don’t personally hold judges of any type in high regard either.

Just this week in Los Angeles, California, a porn case was dismissed because the presiding judge was found to have porn on his personal website. Tucked away in a folder, accessible to the public, containing images of masturbation, public sex, and other graphic sexual acts. The judge said that he thought the folder was shielded from public view by a password.

It was …. “Don’t touch my Pee-pee … Vote For Me”

It appears that those “who sit in judgment on us, are basically just as nasty as the rest of us.” Which in some legal circles can be translated to: “I just read it for the articles.” Where is Denny Crane when you really need him?

Washington, D.C. — A report by U.S. intelligence agencies warns about the national security implications of global warming. The report says climate change is likely to increase illegal immigration, create humanitarian disasters and destabilize precarious governments in political hot spots, all of which could affect U.S. national security.

Now it might pay to remember that this report was generated by these very same people that said that there were WMD’s in Iraq. Those people who I now understand are now working as 7-11 clerks deep in Southern Texas.

Today Oil reached a peak of $5,500 a barrel, and our current president, a three-year old mixed-breed German Shepherd announced that cats will now be allowed to vote …… See how easy it is, anyone can do it.

The United Nations is now saying that “because of U.S. Corn production being converted over to Ethanol production that we are now responsible for the world food shortage and high food prices.” Not exactly true. Production was shifted in 2007, but it only amounted to 20% of the total corn crop and the U.S. Government paid out subsidies to farmers in the amount of some $3 billion dollars.

If you took every morsel, every kernel, each and every ear of corn produced in this country and devoted it specifically to ethanol production it would only meet 11% of the energy needs of this country. I am getting tired of everyone taking a cheap shot at this country.

America is like a big dog in a small room, every time the dog turns around, it is knocking over a table or some piece of furniture. We are dammed if we do and dammed if we don’t.

And when we do help out, those countries on the receiving end walk on the tab, no one ever pays us back, no one ever has a nice thing to say about us. When some inventive American comes up with a genuine plan or scientific process to distillate gasoline from weeds, we will be attacked for pulling all the weeds in the world.

There is so much good in the worst of us

And so much bad in the best of us

That it hardly becomes any of us

To talk about the rest of us

The United Nations ought to go back to minding its own business, which is essentially, doing nothing.

And the beat goes on …


A Shocking Development

Hey! Creative Endeavors was listed as the Featured Blog on 6-27-08 at Wow, how about that, this was a pleasant surprise.

A Grand Junction man was behind bars Wednesday on suspicion of attempting to coerce his girlfriend into having sex by threatening to zap her with a stun gun. Christopher Morgen Taylor, 30, turned on a Taser three times early Tuesday morning after his girlfriend refused to have sex with him, according to an arrest affidavit for Taylor.

When you are 30, you are sometimes what we call “young and stupid.” It should be our duty to inform this poor misguided soul that … You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar; anyone with half a brain knows that.

Taylor‘s girlfriend told police that Taylor turned the Taser on and said to her, “I don’t normally do this to anybody, but …” His girlfriend said she told Taylor to turn off the Taser because it was “freaking her out,” and she uttered a profanity and left the room, the affidavit said. She told police she was scared her boyfriend was going to use the device on her.

Officers with the Grand Junction Police Department located a stun gun on Taylor‘s bedroom nightstand after Taylor gave officers permission to search the house, the affidavit said. Taylor was in custody at Mesa County Jail on a $60,000 bond, on suspicion of first-degree sexual assault and unlawful use of a stun gun, and I suppose anger management classes are next.

He sure isn’t going to “get lucky” anytime soon, using this approach. Absolutely shocking the things men will do for a little uh … Naw, … Best I leave this one alone for sure. The PC word police will be all over me, if I go any further with this one.

Never lay an angry hand on a woman or a kid, it just aint helpful.

O.J. Simpson says he’s being victimized by an ambitious Nevada prosecutor pressing an armed robbery case that even the alleged victims don’t want to pursue. Simpson let loose this week in comments to a Fargo, N.D., radio station KFGO. He says he faces trial in Las Vegas on Sept. 8 because of who he is. Simpson says he’s got a dollar sign on his back and a bull’s eye on his front and everybody’s trying to benefit from him.

Lock N Load!

The newest version of the Associated Press Stylebook is available, and if you follow it, “WMD,” “iPhone” and “anti-virus” are in, while “barmaid,” “blue blood” and “malarkey” are out. Those are just some of the changes to its rules for certain often-used phrases and words. There are also new acceptable forms of describing the Sept. 11 attacks, and a different rule for use for “African-American.” I wonder why “all of a sudden” the mainstream press is concerned about items like this, never was an issue before.

America’s favorite Bull Dawger is down in the mount. He reports he has a little hitch in his giddy-yup. Hugh Hefner says he suffers from back problems because he spends too much time in bed “rustling around with friends”. The 82-year-old Playboy tycoon – who lives with three girlfriends at the infamous Playboy mansion in Los Angeles – is renowned for his womanizing ways, but says his bedroom activities have caused him health problems.

He told “I have some aches and pains and I have had lower back problems since the 80s. Too much time in bed rustling around with friends! I was raised in a very typical Midwestern Methodist home with a lot of repression. There weren’t a lot of hugs and kisses in my home, and I charted my own course.”

Kind of reminds me of my own childhood. I charted a lot of unfamiliar waters in my youth, and went down to the Bay to wait for my ship to come in.

Unfortunately all the piers rotted out before it happened.
