[10-01] Quiet Peace The dogs were barking this morning, you go outside and you sit on the porch with a cup of joe, and you just naturally want to experience some peace and quiet. But around here, that is a rare commodity, a morning with nothing but the melody of a songbird is rare, especially when you live in the big city […]
[10-01]Bush-Whacked Again From time to time I hear of some outrageous stuff going on concerning America.  I had someone I know and trust, tell me that he believes, that there is actually a concentration camp type center being built in the area of Central Ohio for the possible internment of American’s and it is being built on […]
[10-02] Stress Management Starting to load up again, I can feel it. I need to figure out a new way to deal with my stress. I have for instance, been going around to garage sales. Garage sales are good for dealing with stress issues. Here is what you do, you search out these little snow globes, they are […]
[10-02] The Sky Is Falling … Chicken Little, remember that guy, he ran around crying out, “The Sky Is Falling, The Sky is Falling!” Wonder whatever happened to him? Pretty sure that if by chance you have turned on a television lately, you have heard the same cries out of Washington DC. The odds are that your favorite DC intellectual type is telling you “The Sky Is Falling.”  […]
[10-03]  Vote For Me After watching this so-called “debate” last night. I have decided that I am going to take action.  I am sure I can do as good as they promise to do. I HAVE DECIDED TO BECOME A WRITE-IN CANDIDATE FOR THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Here is my platform. (1) Press 1 for English […]
[10-04] Don’t Vote (video) Hollywood Says Don’t Vote
[10-05] Not Raising Hogs Dear Secretary of Agriculture Schaefer, As I understand it, the secretary of the money in the government, a Mr. Paulson, is giving out loads of the stuff, and I can use a little myself. So I am applying to the government for some of this money they are passing out in Washington these days. Me and the Miss’es […]
[10-05] Down The Road I Go I arose one morning and I went to the mine. Another day older and deeper in debt, St. Peter don’t you call me, ‘cause I am too old, I owwwwwwwwe my soul to the company store. Do-do-do-dum, dumpty dee dum. What was the name of that old Tennessee Ernie Ford Song? The title escapes me […]
[10-06] Cognoscible Musings Discourse must be in words, and it is possible to give a name to that which is not understood nor cognoscible by human reason. Man, if that doesn’t sound impotent, nothing does. Nice day today, little rain on the driveway and I have decided the subject should be language. From time to time I […]
[10-06] NBA or NFL 36 Have been accused of spousal abuse 7 Have been arrested for fraud 19 Have been accused of writing bad checks 117 Have directly or indirectly … Bankrupted at least 2 businesses? 3 Have done time for assault 71 … Repeat … 71 Cannot …Get a credit card due to bad credit 14 Have been arrested on drug-related charges 8 Have been arrested for shoplifting 21 Currently […]
[10-06] Reality Checque Oh what is we gonna do? We done invested all our money in a pumpkin farm and the government done called off Halloween The Weekend is over … The government goes back to work early this morning … You have something else to worry about b’sides the quarter of a tank needle on […]
[10-07] Tooo Much Disunity Coming back to bite you in the rear. Bail Out Blues. What most people do not realize, is all of this, every stinking minute of it, has happened before. Just think back to the late seventies and eighties. Back to Charlie Keating, the banker and anti-pornography crusader would ultimately be convicted on 73 counts of […]
[10-07] Another Crap Sandwich Bad Diet. We are being fed one crap sandwich after another, and unfortunately, it appears that from here on out, it is crap sandwiches as far as the eye can see. Secretary of the Treasury Paulson says the U.S. Economy is not out of the woods, and in for some more tough sledding. This naturally occurs […]
[10-08] I Can Fix It This morning, I have been giving a lot of thought to my recently announced plans to run for President (Vote For Me). Coincidentally, I had an epiphany of sorts when I realized that it is not easy being “The Chief” executive officer of a country. That kind of came home to roost, early this […]
[10-08] It Is Gonna Be Just Fine The 2nd Great Debate went down and now I have everyone explaining it to me as if they didn’t do enough of that last night? Another taste of the “dumbing down of America” courtesy of CBS, ABC and NBC. We may soon be losing “Biggy Rat & Itchy Brother” and the replacements, don’t seem to be […]
[10-09] That didn’t take long Picked up the paper this morning and there it is, “Lawmakers put A.I.G. execs on the spot.” Six days after the government rescued A.I.G. with a massive $85 billion loan, the insurance company spent $443,000 on a week-long event for agents at a California resort, according to invoices produced during a Congressional Hearing on Tuesday. […]
[10-09] Up In Smoke As the mortgage debacle reaches its nascent stage, a lot of other newsworthy items are falling into the cracks. A lot of talk here lately on the growing and marketing of Marijuana in this country. But because of all this other ___ no one is really noticing. Pot growing in the U.S.A. is “big time […]
[10-10] Big Bad John (video) I understand that they have called off Halloween and Thanksgiving in the Nation’s capitol this year. Something about the witch going to New York and taking the turkey with her? But I am not sure. It is going to be awfully difficult to see anything to be Thankful for this year. Last night at the […]
[10-11] Honey Wagon Xpress Someone told me that in Korea, the truck that comes around and empties the septic tank and hauls off the human waste is refered to as the “Honey Wagon.” Which got me to thinking, “If that is the case, then there must be a REALLY BIG Bee Hive around here somewhere!” And if you think […]
[10-11]  Screw The Economy! (audio) Sit back, crank it up and take a break.  It will all be there on Monday.    Tagged: Jerry Lee, Music, Ray Charles, rest
[10-11] Talkin’ The Talk “Yeah no joke, it was there one minute, and then whoosh, it was all gone!” Turned on the television and there was my favorite Texas Waddie explaining to the American people the current economic mess we seem to find ourselves immersed in. “We currently have a shortage of some $2.5 trillion dollars in the Wall Street […]
[10-13] The Old Days Think back to when you were growing up in South Dakota or Nebraska or somewhere where three billion people have never been and times were just as tough. When you had to, like my dad, walk 14 miles to school each day round trip, uphill BOTH ways on never a nice day, to a one-room […]
[10-13] Chummin The Waters Down Girl … Down! With his electoral prospects fading by the day, Senator John McCain has fallen out with his vice-presidential running mate about the direction of his White House campaign. McCain has become alarmed about the fury unleashed by Sarah Palin, the moose-hunting “pitbull in lipstick”, against Senator Barack Obama. Cries of “terrorist” and “kill […]
[10-14]  Cause and Effect Isn’t it funny how the “language” is always changing, slowly and often un-noticed, the things that we considered “standard” are no longer around. Replaced while we were not looking. Lately I have been hung up on this language thing so I thought I might devote a little time to it this morning. Often I […]
[10-14]  Lost In Washington It always amazed me how George Hubert Walker Bush, who only served one term in the Presidency of the United States could get Barbara’s picture on a dollar bill.  Now along comes George Dubya Bush and he has his picture on a dollar too. Received a smattering of emails over the weekend from people wanting me […]
[10-15]  Gimme – Gimme Not long ago I was watching the movie “Wall Street” starring Michael Douglas. This is where he plays the unscrupulous Wall Street financier Buddy Grekko (sp) I believe his name was, a Donald Trump Wall-Street-Wanna-be of the first order. In the movie he states that “GREED is good, and that it is not all that […]
[10-15]  Enter Your Password QUESTION:  “Is your life any better because of computers?” Tough question. Like my crazy Aunt Martha used to say … Don’t get me started. So is it yay or nay on the computer issue? Good or bad. The marvelous, wonderful world of computers, where nothing can go wrong, go wrong, go wrong. A man, having experiencing […]
[10-15]  Just Plain Weird A little taste of what has been going on around the country, some of it good, and some of it not so good.  For instance, I got a haircut on Friday and then went to eat.  The waitress at the beanery says to me, “You don’t look good in that haircut, I don’t like it.” […]
[10-16] First and Ten Late at night, the quiet time of the morning, most of you are still asleep. I am sitting here in my underwear thinking about milkshakes, did you know the average fast food milkshake contains over fifty chemicals? I am somewhat partial to Strawberry myself. (Now if that doesn’t create a vivid mindset, I don’t know what does […]
[10-17]  IT’S A MUMMY THING No, this is not another post about Sarah Palin, The Moose-Goosing-two-gun-tooting Yummy Mummy from Northern Exposure. This is a somewhat different thing altogether. This morning I was going to write about “bottled water” but my friend down in Florida beat me to it (I guess I should get up earlier) and I have to hone […]
[10-18] Say It Isn’t So Joe A record 90 percent of voters say country is seriously off track. According to a new ABC poll, 90 percent of registered voters say the country is going in the wrong direction. Only 23 percent approve of President Bush. After the recent presidential debate someone on McSame’s bus was heard to say … “It’s 10pm, […]
[10-17] Cheep Fills So here I am boarding a plane for Seattle, and I was feeling a touch nervous because that morning a plane was forced to make an emergency landing at this very airport after a window blew out at 14,000 ft above sea level and this incredibly huge Wall Street Banking Investment Counselor was sucked right […]
[10-18] Highlighting History Here lately, a great many of our political hopefuls, presidential wanna-be’s and vice presidential what-evers have been running fast and loose with not only the facts, but our recent and past history. So I figured, what is good for the goose, is good for the gander and I have taken time today to correlate some […]
[10-19]  Poor Joe The Plumber Must have been a great outside weather weekend, I note that we did not receive that many visitors to the site over the past couple of days. The news has been nothing short of terrible here lately, perhaps everyone just kicked back and got drunk, I dunno. But alas, don’t give up, hope is […]
[10-21] Rated “E” This post is rated “E” for entertaining.  No, educational, uh, erratic.  THIS POST IS FOR EVERYONE … Whew?  Sure glad we got that out of the way. Oh well, it is Tuesday, and as with all Tuesday’s I have my problems.  Much like a child in grammar school, I am never prepared for the lesson on […]
[10-21] Two Wheel Beginnings My First Bike was a used Schwinn that I bought off our paperboy.  You remember your first bike?  Maybe it was under similar circumstances, back in the fifties, money as it is today, was tight.  You didn’t get a lot of new stuff back in those days. Everyone on the block was getting a bike, one […]
[10-22] Grandpa’s Low Rider This month is the anniversary month for Schwinn bicycles. Schwinn started his company way back in 1895 in Germany. Schwinn left school in 1871 at the age of 11 to become a mechanic’s apprentice. He soon went to work for himself: traveling the German countryside fixing bicycles by day and working on his own designs […]
[10-22] Hump Day (video)
[10-23] Enhanced Average Joe Thought it was going to be a slow day, but it finally appeared. The first totally ridiculous statement of the morning. I heard one today I had never heard before, “enhance the male experience” now that has to be a first. I have heard it called a lot of things during the course of my […]
[10-24]  Feeding The Monster Recently I read an interesting piece and it said that blogs that have visitors in the range of 3,000 per day, are capable of generating $75,000.00 per year in revenue. This would mean you would have a minimum of 100,000 people coming to your site yearly, and advertisers consider that a “gold mine” the […]
[10-24]  Sign Of The Times Yesterday I was entering a convenience store and on the door they had posted a sign that read “Remove all masks before entering store.” I had never personally seen this type of sign before, I assume it was posted there in anticipation of weekend crowds that are on the way to Halloween Parties and as a safety precaution for crime […]
[10-27] Litin’ Up My website grader says I have too many pictures on my site, it will slow down the process of loading, and therefore, it is not a good idea.  I say “be patient” it is worth the wait, besides, I like the pictures. It’s that time of year once again: The Northwest summer sun has slipped away, […]
[10-28] Juggling Reality Excuse me, would it be alright if we …. Dover Delaware – A lawyer representing a condemned ax murderer told the state Supreme Court that prison officials violated state law by adopting a new lethal-injection protocol without allowing for public review or comment. An attorney for the Department of Correction argued that its policies and procedures […]
[10-29]  Down On The River Patiently waiting on the sun to burn off the morning haze, so I can load up, take the bike and head on down to the river. Oklahoma City has about 30-50 miles of bike trails spread out all over the city and I like to go down alongside the river and ride in the mornings […]
[10-30]  It’s Simple Okay, I think I have it down now. BANKER to TAXPAYER: “It’s simple … You are loaning me money.” TAXPAYER: “Uh huh.” BANKER: “So I can lend YOU money.” TAXPAYER: “Uh huh?” BANKER: “This way, I can stimulate the economy.” TAXPAYER” “Huh?” BANKER: “And when it gets back on its feet and is robust and I will pay you back […]
[10-31]  Good Day – Bad Day Listen guys, all this stuff you have been sending me telling me that if I just forward it on and pass it to my friends it will bring me good luck.  Well, it aint working. Please just send me some money, chocolate or gas vouchers.  Thanks. Bad Day – Good Day – What are my choices? Time […]

Bush-Whacked Again

From time to time I hear of some outrageous stuff going on concerning America.  I had someone I know and trust, tell me that he believes, that there is actually a concentration camp type center being built in the area of Central Ohio for the possible internment of American’s and it is being built on an abandoned Army base.

Then I had a guy tell me that he saw a government boxcar (Yes our government has its own freight cars, they own their own tank cars, box cars, flat cars labeled D.O.D.X. – Department Of Defense and of course, you and I.).  Anyway he said the door had came open on it, so while in a siding he went back to close the door and inside he spied “guillotines!”  Now I know this guy and I have no reason to believe he was fabricating this, but it sure does make a fellow wonder?

And then I came across this:

U.S. Army brigade being assigned to the Homeland.

Normally this would be a cause for celebration, the shedding of a tear or two, utter and uncontrollable joy.  But it is not so … What you are about to read will possibly stand the hair on the back of your neck straight up.

Mr Bush is bringing the troops home specifically to keep you in line by means of “martial law.”  Martial law is a euphemism for military dictatorship.  When foreign democracies are overthrown and a junta establishes martial law, American’s usually recognize that a fundamental change has occurred.

Bush (and I suppose Cheney) have enabled legislation to circumvent another constitutional law and no one seemed to even notice.  It was tucked into an appropriations bill with little fanfare or debate.  Secreted neatly in a $500 billion appropriations bill, without so much as word of discussion from anyone.  More than money on the line here, your basic freedom is now in jeopardy.

In case you are wondering I ran it thru the usual source checkers and it appears to be true, it isn’t a rumor, and it isn’t an Urban Legend.

What it is …. Is scarier than hell.

This administration has been the most inept, corrupt, and illegal administration in the history of our country. It is common knowledge they are ripe with liars and have no real consideration or respect for the constitution.  They have their own agenda and priorities.

Recently I came across this information and if it doesn’t make you wake up and smell the coffee … If it doesn’t send a shiver up and down your spine … Then I guess there just isn’t any hope for you at all.

If you don’t believe that tyranny is possible in America, then you need to take five minutes out of your busy day and the article.  If any of this is true, then I would say we could be in for some serious problems in the future.  As much as I hate to admit it, “we might be already there.”

Check out theVideo here.

Let us hope and pray it isn’t this way.

Quiet Peace

The dogs were barking this morning, you go outside and you sit on the porch with a cup of joe, and you just naturally want to experience some peace and quiet. But around here, that is a rare commodity, a morning with nothing but the melody of a songbird is rare, especially when you live in the big city.

So as I am still at this point in life, a child in the imagination department, I reach deep down inside me and dredge up another memory. I think about Jerome, Arizona.

I first encountered Jerome at the ripe old age of about eleven as I remember it. My parents introduced it to my sister and I on a family vacation one year.

Jerome is located south of Flagstaff, Arizona some 60-65 miles and due west of Sedona, Arizona one of John McCain’s favorite haunts.

Jerome is an old abandoned copper mining town, sitting on the side of a mountain, quiet and serene on most days. Having been there several times, I hope someday to visit it for a day or so again. You can stand on main street in Jerome, look north and see the San Francisco peaks in Flagstaff some 60 plus miles away and the views there are nothing short of drop-dead gorgeous.

If quiet and solitude are what you are searching for, there still remain small vestiges of it in America, but you have to search them out. North Cascades National Park is rated as one of the quietest parks in this country. Absolutely one of the best is Glacier National Park in Montana, but see it while you can. This park as others are falling to the effects of Global Warming.  Great Basin National Park in Nevada , it is one of the west’s’ lesser known parks, but well worth the trip, summer or winter.

Big Hole National Park in Montana is another, history and peace abound. Muir Woods in California is really hard to find (in the Bay Area of San Francisco) a jewel in the midst of modern day suburbia.

You might possibly note: The Grand Canyon and Yellowstone were purposely avoided, they are overcrowded, noisy and generally speaking “Being Loved Too Death” and I would say skip them completely, unless you have never seen them, that is. I am sure that there are great area’s still left in Alaska, but I find that too hard to get to, plus there is the added possibility that the Governor might come by in her gun-toting moose-gooser-gunship and I certainly do not want to be there for that.

B’sides, one of my primary reasons for seeking out these areas of majestic beauty in our country is to get away from it all. Big city noise, the constant clamor of society, media blather concerning politicians and the likes of all that. I wonder where the other politicians go to unwind; we know where McSame goes, he heads for Sedona.

Where do the rest of them slink off to when they are not running for office or prostituting themselves for political funding?  Perhaps a fast trip to the Bohemian Grove for a quick refresher course on screwing the masses.

One afternoon a politician was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate. He asked one man, “Why are you eating grass?”

“We don’t have any money for food,” the poor man replied.“We have to eat grass.”

“Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I’ll feed you,” the politician said.  “But sir, I have a wife and two small children with me.  They are over there under that tree.”

“Bring them along,” the politician replied. Turning to the other poor man he stated, “You come with us, also.”

The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, “But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!” “Bring them all, as well,” the politician answered. They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine was.

Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the politician and said, “Sir, you are too kind, thank you for taking all of us with you.” The politician replied, “Glad to do it.  You will all really love my place …. The grass is almost a foot high!”

Seasons change … Rivers wind … Tumbleweeds roll and the stars shine

Wind howls and dawn breaks … The day moves on and slowly slips away

And I need a quiet place to lay my head.
