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 summer sun has slipped away, brittle leaves waltz, and winter waits to cloak us in its dark, cold hood.  The wind across the American Prairie has picked up and is tearing at the corner of your eye, parts of Amarillo blow into town every other day, and you just know, winter cannot be far away.

The easy days of light and freedom are behind us, and now we gather ’round for a season of more serious celebrations — our yearly time to burrow in, reconnect, contemplate. and of course, lite the heater, man I just love the smell of burnt rust filling the home.

Nothing says change of season better than the smell of burnt rust, and of course, the sound of Christmas Music playing in the local stores.

No Confidence.

Sarah Palin’s Alaskan paper has endorsed Obammer for President, how embarrassing is that? You cannot even muster up enough support in your home state for a vote of confidence. Fact of life, in medieval times, Europeans burned witches at the stake, and the families had to pay for the firewood. Now days we take them to Neiman Marcus in Dallas, spend a couple of hundred grand on them and elect them to office.

Eight more days and then all the serf’s can go down to register their protest and vote in the next king for the kingdom. It has deteriorated so badly we are now electing people who will not furnish proof of citizenship to the highest office in the land.

Don’t Vote For Anyone.

One stronghold of “common sense” has been located over the weekend.  In Wisconsin.  Madison, the state’s largest farm lobby won’t endorse anyone for president. The 42,000-member Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation’s lobbyist, Paul Zimmerman, said the decision was based on members’ mixed reactions to its endorsement of George W. Bush in 2004 – the first time the group made such a move. Just when you were thoroughly convinced that the voting populace had lost their collective minds, a ray of hope appears on the horizon.

Monkey See Monkey Do.

The popularity of Joe The Plumber has finally been noticed by the Barack Obamma people and now they are going to put their own spin on it with, they are going to feature their own personalities in commercials, Joe The Mobster, Jeremiah The American Hating Preacher.  Watch for it on a station near you.  Fidel Castro has endorsed Obammer for President, afterwards Obammer just shrugged it off and said “that he was just some guy who lived in the neighborhood.” So much for the “Messiah News.” … The Second Return of JC. (Second Return of Jimmy Carter)

Getting Out The Vote.

Washington state sent 24,000 ballots to felons who were not allowed to vote, and apparently sent these same felons, invitations to Obammers inauguration as well.  In a recent poll, McSame leads Obammer some 9% with people who display the American Flag.  But on the same token, Obammer does lead McSame by people who burn the American flag.  A group of lawyers has successfully blocked the release of the movie “Hanoi Hilton” until after the election.  We surely do not want Hollywood trying to influence an election not in this day and age.

What’s Your Problem.

Best Buy evidently has put out a new logo which will accurately help to improve the company’s surly image.  It is a picture of a teenager rolling his eyes and looking towards the ceiling when a customer asks him …. “Can you tell me where the DVD’s are?”

Cough it up

Panhandlers in an eastern Tennessee city (Chattanooga) pay fines and court costs at a low rate, with about 3% in the last 18 months.  Apparently the street beggars in that city are somewhat reluctant to pay their fines.  The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported Sunday Chattanooga City Court has collected only $279.75 of the $8,958.75 of the fines and court costs levied since the City Council expanded downtown’s no-panhandling zone in May 2007.  The paper reported, there’s essentially nothing the city can do to force the payments or punish non-payers more severely.

Let’s see, your employer laid you off, your 401K vaporized, you lost your home and now you are living on the street, under an overpass, in a comfortable cardboard appliance carton, and all of your belongings are in a shoppin’ cart.  How could they possibly punish you any more?

Dressed in red, white and blue, drag queen Gina Maseratti walked down Southard Street in Key West asking Fantasy Fest revelers for their support: `Vote for Maseratti, your next president.” What’s her platform? ”High heels,” she said. `It’s all about the shoes.”

On a more serious note, Maseratti explained: `I’m a member of the Drag party: Drastic Reform of American Government. I’ll save you on money because I can be president, vice president and First Lady all in one.”

Do You Want A Bong With That? Rocky Mountain High.

A Lakewood couple found a small bag of marijuana in a bag of food picked up at the drive-in of a Del Taco Restaurant.  Twenty-six-year-old Dennis Klermund, who police say waited on the husband who stopped at the restaurant Oct. 16, faces possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Steve Davis on Saturday said the couple called police after discovering the bag with their food order.

An officer said Klermund initially denied any knowledge but when a search dog found the drug in a locker, admitted the baggie was meant for a friend. Restaurant Ulises Montero said Klermund no longer works there. A message left for Klermund was not immediately returned.

The best for last.

Joe Scarborough, a commentator for MSNBC, failed to check his facts when he reported that California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger had advocated destroying the moon. Scarborough quoted Schwarzenegger as saying, “If we get rid of the moon, women … those menstrual cycles are governed by the moon … will not get PMS. They will stop whining.”

Scarborough then chided Schwarzenegger for insensitivity, saying: “I don’t know how it works in Austria, but let me tell you something, friend. Jokes about such matters are not laughing subjects to women in America.”

It turned out however, that the statement was not being made by Schwarzenegger but rather by an impersonator who appeared on the Howard Stern Radio Show. Eleven days later, Scarborough apologized to viewers for “my terrible mistake. Anyone who relies on the Howard Stern show for information is an idiot; you would be better off sticking with Email.

A letter from Jerry Molen


I received this in an email the other day, it is quite interesting, I am not all that sure of the validity of it, so take it with a grain of salt.  The  writer of this essay is Jerry Molen, an Academy Award winning Hollywood Producer, who produced Jurassic Park, Hook, Rain Man and many more classy movies, and who won the Academy Award for Schindler’s List.  Jerry is one of the very few conservatives in
Hollywood but wants to include Democrats.

He says:

We are about to make the Mother-of-All-Mistakes, because the Republican Party gave us no reliable alternative.  If the conservative movement does not rally behind the only alternative left to us, this country will become a true
Socialist State within the next two Presidential terms.


Ladies and Gentleman, this is the most grave situation this nation has faced in my lifetime.  We just experienced an over-hyped, outrageous primary election season that has left me wondering where the heads of our citizens are hiding must be someplace where the sun doesn’t go very often.

At one time in my life I was a determined, dedicated and ever-loyal, registered Democrat.  Then something happened – Lyndon Baines Johnson – that turned my life around and gave me pause for the veracity of a party that lives and feeds off of the most unfortunate among us.  Some of them are in their positions in life by their own choosing, others by outside circumstance.  But always, always there was a door open to them, to reach for new heights, achieve new goals, change their lives for the better.

Similarly, there have always been the bottom feeders, doing what they could to take advantage of those who had not or have not seen better days, nor realized that they, in fact, were the masters of their own destiny; and these unfortunates had come to believe that they were dependent on people in Washington who would look out for and take care of them.  They waited and still wait for all those promised freebies.

Most people don’t reflect upon the fact that the Democrats ruled
Washington for over 40 years; it wasn’t until 1994 when the so-called Gingrich Revolution changed it, but only for a while.

These same people do not realize that it was the Democrats who created the failed policies of the entitlement programs that are now falling apart before our eyes.  Do not think I find the Republicans blameless in all this.  They, too, suffer from the ego and greed built into our system.  But in the past few months I have listened with growing horror to the railings of the left, calling for yet more giveaways, more promises of a proverbial ‘free lunch’.

What sums up my feelings, why I am appalled by those in political power is contained within a quote by basketball legend and talk show host Charles Barkley:  Poor people have been voting for Democrats for the last fifty years….and they are still poor.

Now, with our elections, come yet more new promises of change:  change we can believe in, hope for the future.  But if you really, I mean REALLY listen to what the new messiah is asking for, it is not change of policy or change for the better – this is a warning that he wants our change.  And the change you will get will not be the change you expected or wanted.

I leave you my predictions of what will happen if the junior Senator from
Illinois becomes President especially if the House and Senate are veto-proof Democrat:

1.  Strict gun laws, though he promised he would not.

2.  ‘In God We Trust ‘ will be removed from all currency.

3.  He will renege on his pledge to
Israel and leave them to the wolves of Islam.

4. Hillary Clinton will be named to the Supreme Court.

5.  Tax rates will surge to the highest levels in 30 years.

6. Capital gains tax will be at least double current levels.

7.  Retired Army General Wesley Clark will be named Secretary of Defense.

8.  Your borders will be open to all comers especially from the
Middle East and South America.

9.  Amnesty will be granted to all illegals in the U.S, regardless of status or even gang membership (think MS-13).

10 . Our presence in
Iraq will come to an abrupt end with tragic results though their citizens and devastating consequences to our military.

My predictions will not sit well with some people – the best we could hope for is that I am wrong.  Any bets?
