Creme De Crude …

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: “Regardless of the vibe you think you’re getting from your dentist, you should never, ever, lick her finger.”

Arizona: Officers dispatched to what they thought was a domestic disturbance Monday night discovered a lone Mesa man fighting with himself. Though the original call reported a verbal argument between a man and a woman, police said they found the 21-year-old man arguing with himself, changing the pitch of his voice as he acted out each part.

The man was also destroying the inside of the apartment, officers said. He broke the front window as officers tried to calm him down and coax him out of the home, according to authorities.

Now let’s see. If you are crazy, they take you off to someplace like this guy, and shut you in a room by yourself. If you write a blog, you go off, shut yourself in a room by yourself and write. Hmmmm … Kind of like people who write in blogs everyday.

Denver, Colorado – Good news and bad news. First the good news, if you win over $1200 at anything, they are going to check to see if you are behind of child support or other pressing items, and divert the winnings to the mother and the kids that need it. This is great. Some help for all those girls struggling to make it on their own these days. It only took “five attempts” to pass this legislation, that is kind of sad isn’t it.

You cannot exercise your right to Free Speech at the Convention in Denver, they are going to erect a fence to keep you out. That kind of sucks huh? Getting where all this “I live in America, I can say what I want about anything” is no longer applicable. By the way, it was a ruling from a “Federal Court” that paved the way for this.

In a related item, half way around the world.

SYDNEY, AustraliaNew regulations making it a crime to annoy or inconvenience people gathering in Sydney during Pope Benedict XVI’s visit later this month were criticized Tuesday as a heavy-handed blow to free speech.

The laws will apply in dozens of areas of downtown Sydney — including the city’s landmark opera house, train stations and city parks — that are designated venues for World Youth Day, a Catholic evangelical festival at which the pontiff will conduct mass and lead prayer meetings.

The regulations give police and emergency services workers power to order anyone to stop behavior that “causes annoyance or inconvenience to participants in a World Youth Day event,” according to a New South Wales state government gazette. Anyone who does not comply faces a 5,500 Australian dollar (US$5,300) fine.

It costs big bucks down under to tell some to “piss off.”

Two young ladies (much too young to drive) in Salt Lake City are protesting the high price of gasoline. Their mother had to cut cable TV in order to purchase high priced gas and they are incensed at the idea of losing their cartoons and favorite shows. So they took some old political signs and lettered ’em up and are walking the streets in Salt Lake protesting.

Sad note, when children have to show the adults what needs to be done.

California’s administration of the death penalty is “close to collapse” and would require massive new state spending or changes in sentencing laws to end decades of delay and dysfunction, a state commission reported Monday. The average death row stay is now 20 years with appeals. Here in Oklahoma, we have a guard dress up in a clown suit, run thru the door and hit them in the face with a poison pie. Not very cool, but it saves a lot of money!

Where is the happiest place in the world to live?  Denmark, with its democracy, social equality and peaceful atmosphere, is the happiest country in the world, researchers said on Monday. Zimbabwe, torn by political and social strife, is the least happy, while the world’s richest nation, the United States, ranks 16th.

Overall, the world is getting happier, according to the U.S. government-funded World Values Survey, done regularly by a global network of social scientists. It found increased happiness from 1981 to 2007 in 45 of 52 countries analyzed.

They allow you to smoke pot in Denmark or is that Norway?

Speaking of pot (nice blend huh) California is trying to place an initiative on the ballot to legalize smoke (pot). Best get your investment portfolio updated to include Doritos’s and Hostess Cup Cakes. This thing passes and the sales of “Munchies” are going to go thru the roof.

The New West Coast Gold Rush.

And last but not least. Sioux Falls, South Dakota was picked as the safest city in the U.S. to drive. It won out over other cities “who were not included in the survey” (I am not making this up). When our mayor was informed of this development he was overheard saying to his staff ……. “Hey? Sioux Falls, South Dakota, has cars!”

Now go shut yourself in a room and write something funny for me to read. There isn’t a dog-gone thing on U-Tube today.

Okie Stinkin Thinkin

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. 

 

You can protest and make your voice heard, if you are say, five miles away.
 
A guy is 65 years old and loves to fish.  He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, ‘Pick me up.’ He looked around and couldn’t see anyone. He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again, ‘Pick me up’.

He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a frog. The man said

‘Are you talking to me?’

 

The frog said, ‘Yes, I’m talking to you. Pick me up. Then, kiss me and I’ll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen. I’ll then give you more sexual pleasure that you ever could have dreamed of.’

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.’  

 
He opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said, ‘Nah, at my age I’d rather have a talking frog.’

 

Have a great weekend.
