Tuesday Evening

I just had a visit from my good friend Junior Carter and his wife Bonnie. We drank a couple of beers, shot the shit for a while and they went back on their way to Parkers Crossroads. Grouch, if ye ever want any REAL bar-b-que, got to the crossroads and find Junior. We had a good bullshit session and I love em both dearly! Also had a visit from Tony Cole and his girlfriend this afternoon. We shot the shit for a while and they motored off on their cycles. No wonder I can't get anything done, get too many visitors! But anyway, I did get about 3/4 of the yard cut, finished the carpet installation on the Camino and actually went to wok for an hour or so this moaning. Not too bad for an old man and one day!

Anyway, if you're the type to keep track, I aint, Junior is quite black! BUT! He's a man! I don't care what your color is, BE A MAN! Wannabees, uncle tom's, oreo's, whatever, DON'T CUT IT! If you gonna hang with me, be a man. Every color under the sun has it's share of problems. Black, white, yellow or red. We all got the same shit to deal with.
Be A Man! Face your problems head on. Don't pass the buck to your neighbor, friends, or the gubment. Face yo problems like a man and move on!!!

Alas, Nothing to Bitch About Today!

7:00 PM. I'm sitting here listening to a couple of old geezers on 75 meters yammer away about nothing. Actually, I'm waiting to hear any of my buddies wanting to send some artful type pictures over the ham radio. Got up at the crack of early today, I'm off all week, and pulled the seats outta the '77 El Camino to install new carpet.
Dang! What a chore! Finally wrestled the seats out, vacuumed the floor and laid the carpet. While the seats were out, I opted to install the radio, a pristine Motorola AM,FM, 8 track I purchased at the Dayton hamfest for 25 cents. Works fine.
Then I put the seats, almost, back in. Still got a couple of screws to go in the front of them. Will wait til it's a little cooler to put them in. Pictures will follow.

Don't Know if this is the truth, BUT THINK ABOUT IT! THINK!!!

This will warm your heart just thinking of all those years most of you worked to provide an education for yourself or your children, when you could have been as smart as our President and accomplished it for NADA!!

Lets all gaze into our crystal balls and play "what if".


In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the
presidency, the group "Americans for Freedom of Information" has
Released copies of President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental

Released today, the transcript indicates that Obama, under the name
Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from
Indonesia as an undergraduate at the school. The transcript was released
by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought
by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows
that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a
fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation
Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must
claim foreign citizenship.

This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama's
detractors have been seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first
born in Kenya and there is no record of him ever applying for US
citizenship, this is looking pretty grim. The news has created a
firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about
Obama's legitimacy and qualification to serve as president. When reached
for comment in London, where he has been in meetings with British Prime
Minister Gordon Brown, Obama smiled but refused comment on the issue.

Britain's Daily Mail has also carried the story in a front-page article
titled, "Obama Eligibility Questioned," leading some to speculate that
the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama's first official visit
to the U.K.

In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice
Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to
hear arguments concerning Obama's legal eligibility to serve as
President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey.

This lawsuit claims Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from
serving as president. Donofrio's case is just one of 18 suits brought by
citizens demanding proof of Obama's citizenship or qualification to
serve as president.

Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the
results of their investigation of Obama's campaign spending. This study
estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in
the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to
block disclosure of any of his personal records.

Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the
final report will be provided to the U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder.
Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter.



Come What May!

Here's What I Believe!

My Friend, The Grouch , has recently posted a few blogs titled "What I Believe" Well, here, in a short blog, is what I believe.
I believe that an adult individual, man or woman, straight or otherwise, Republican or Democrat, white, black, yellow, red or rainbow colored, SHOULD BE ABLE AND ENTITLED to do anything he damn well pleases, as long as it does not interfere with anybody else's right to do whatever THEY damn well please!
That sounds kind of ambiguous at first, but THINK about it! After all, thinking is the reason I started this blog.
I "should" have the right to own as many guns as I want. Whatever kind. If I want a full machine gun, I should have the right! If I want to make my own liquor, I should have the right. If I want to prostitute myself, I should have the right. It don't matter what, I should have the right, as long as it does not step on YOUR rights!
Now, you have the right not to even believe in guns, drink beer or liquor, associate with prostitutes, speak to me. You have the right to do or believe anything you want, as long as it does not interfere with my rights!
You see where I am going?
Our "LAWS" have been made, and there are plenty of them, to "PROTECT" us from one another. In reality, I don't CARE what you do, as long as you leave me the hell alone! And for the majority, I believe that is what you care about. BUT! Our government has decided for us that we NEED TO BE PROTECTED FROM EACH OTHER!
I don't need the Government to protect me from you, nor you from me. If you don't like me stepping on your toes, TELL ME! I will do the same, believe me.
I believe our Government should ONLY be allowed to print money and run the armed forces! PERIOD! THAT"S ALL WE NEED EM FOR!
We can as civilized people can handle the rest! If you are NOT civilized, the PEOPLE can handle that too!

Here's Something I Received in an Email. Wish I Knew the Author!

Pastor's wife's letter
How's this for apocalyptic literature. This was written by a pastor's wife in biblical prose as a commentary of current events. It is Brilliant.

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and their will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that person known as "The One".
He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you. My lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my association with evil doers are of no consequence. For I
shall save you with Hope and Change.
Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land that he who preceded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed." And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew not what "The One" would do, he had promised that it was good; and they believed. And "The One" said "We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!" And the people said, "Hallelujah! Change is good!"

Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats." And the people said "Sock it to them!" "And redistribute their wealth." And the people said, "Show us the money!" And then He said, "Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody."

And Joe the plumber asked, "Are you kidding me? You're going to steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??" And "The One" ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe's personal records were hacked and publicized.
One lone reporter asked, "Isn't that Marxist policy?"
And she was banished from the kingdom!

Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?" And "The One" said, "Simple. I shall sit with them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!" And the people said, "Hallelujah! ! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!"
Then "The One" said, "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes." And one, lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes." So "The One" said, "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!" And the people said, "Hallelujah! ! Show us the money!"

Then "The One" said, "I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!" And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed. And He said, "I shall mandate employer- funded health care for
EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the clinics." And the people said, "Give me some of that!"

Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs
overseas." And the people said, "Where's my rebate check?"

Then "The One" said, "I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!" And the people said, "Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don't care for that part about higher electric rates" So "The One" said, "Not to worry. If your rebate isn't enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you
out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!"

Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care,
bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing." And the people said, "Hallelujah! !" And they made him King!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff. The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support.

Then "The One" said, "I am "The One" - The Messiah - and I'm here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!" But our foreign trading partners said unto Him, "Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will
have to pay more." And the people said, "Wait a minute. That is unfair!!" And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!"

And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?" But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon "The One" and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without
sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change "The
One" had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built. And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, "Give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!" But it was
too late, and their homeland was no more.

You may think this is a fairy tale, but it's not.
It's happening RIGHT NOW !!!

One More for Thursday

Now, I may use a little graphic language in this blog, so if you get offended, tuff.
I am a firm subscriber to an early morning constitutional bowel movement. 7 AM, and I'm on the pot!
This morning I was enjoying a good, bowel cleansing. I happened to look down at the label of my jeans. Made in Mexico!
I looked at the label of my drawers, underwear, to you PC people. Made in India!
Socks, Sri Lanka!
Shoes, China!
Shirt, China!
Watch, Japan!
Commode, I was sitting on, China!
It occurred to me that myself and the turd I was dropping were the ONLY AMERICAN MADE OBJECTS IN THE TOILET!
HMMMMM?!? Why can't people find a job? The American Way of Life has TURNED TO SHIT!

The MEDIA, who do you believe?

Hey! It's Thursday afternoon, Friday for me! I am glad. All I have to do for the next three days is cut a little grass, clean up my hamshack and do whatever my wife tells me to do.
But anyway, we're discussing the media. Now, you may not believe this but I know a little bit about our news and entertainment media. I have spent about one half of my 60+ years as a TV repairman and as an electronic technician. Now, as a tv repairman, I was forced to watch a LOT of TV. While watching all this tv, I soon discovered that the tv news reported WHAT THEY WANTED TO REPORT! Usually sensationalized blood and gore and bad news! Seldom if ever did I see a boy scout helping an old lady across the road, a fireman rescuing a kitten from a tree, a cop lifting some old man out of the bathtub from where he had lost consciousness, or any other of the trivial good things that good people do in the course of everyday life.
Instead, we see cops beating up poor innocent people, firemen driving recklessly, boy scouts turning queer. ANYTHING TO SELL AIR TIME!
This is the watchword of all media. ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS.
The media is all out for your buck!
The tv genre is all slanted toward their individual viewpoints! The major networks are ALL pro Obama, because that's where the money is. Fox, is generally anti-Obama, cause that's where THEIR money is. But this is just the NEWS I'm referring to right now.
Let's talk about the "entertainment" programming. Every program I see is slanted toward pro-socialism, pro homosexuality, pro-murder, rape, mayhem. Where has the Andy Griffith show, the Leave it to Beaver, the Dick Van Dyke, the I Love Lucy shows all gone? All these shows promoted Christian, family values. They don't sell advertising time. Nowadays Barney Fife would be beating up Lucy Arnez for jaywalking while Dick VanDyke would be raping June Cleaver!
Turn off your TV, unplug your radio and play Scrabble with your kids! Please! Bring family life back and screw the media!

Monday, June 15 and I am Sick of Storms

It's 6:15 PM. I have put in a typical day at work. Nothing particularly stressful. Been watching the weather all day. Tending to a bit of business. Been looking at my friend the Grouch's blog and passing along a couple of comments. Now, I am out in the shack. That's my radio room to you non hams. Got the low band tuned to the low end of 80 meters, hoping to hear some of my buddies, but am afraid the weather aint gonna let me hear anything but static crashes. Had plans to cut grass this afternoon but the weatherman isn't going to let me do that. As I have said, I am a ham radio operator. Have been since 1960. I don't get all wrapped up into the hobby like some, but do enjoy rag chewing with my buddies. Rag chewing is just generally shooting the breeze. We send pictures over the radio usually, it is generally good fun, we take a lot of pix at Dayton and other hamfests, doctor them up, and send 'em out. All in good fun. There are also contesters on ham radio. They are usually Obama supporting scum. Then there are the do-gooders. These are the storm chasing, light flashing, siren blowing cop wannabees. Before ya'll organize a lynch mob, let me say that I was once also a do-gooder. One night, in the midst of having a heart attack from the strain of pulling a tree off a carload of drunks, I said "WAIT!, what am I doing? There are people getting PAID to do this shit I am out doing for FREE!" So, having lived thru the heart attack, I swore off do-gooding. Now, this being said, HAMS who provide COMMUNICATIONS during natural or homade disasters ARE NOT DO-GOODERS! They ARE THE BACKBONE OF HAM RADIO! I have nothing but respect for them. They have saved so many lives and provided vital information for so many, because landlines (telephones) or cell phones or any other form of communication were down, that I couldn't even begin to count. I have an agreement with my local EMS. If you need me to man radios, call me, if you need me to do the job of police, sheriff or paramedics, forget it! I am too busy.
I will give anybody that is interested some more info on Ham Radio again sometimes, but right now, I'm going for a COOLD 806!

Wednesday, June 10 and I am TIRED!

Hey folks.
I wasn't ready to post a blog today but I got to reading my friend, the grouch's blog and thought I would git on my soapbox a little. See grouch's blog at http://grouchatrighttruth.blogspot.com/2009/06/im-rich-white-confederate-flag-waving.html.
I am tired if black racism. I don't really see much "white" racism anymore. Folks, we need to put skin color bias (not racism) behind us. This shit is really wearing thin. I do not love all white people, I do not hate all black people, yellow people, red people. In my 60 odd years, I have learned to accept the human race for what they are. Merely specks of life on a rock whirling around the sun.
EVERYBODY HAS PROBLEMS! Such is LIFE! Live with it, adapt to it, overcome it! Nobody on earth was issued a guarantee of a fine, wonderful, trouble free happy life! It just aint so!
Back in my very much younger years, I actually attended a KKK meeting! These folks were talking about hating all Jews, blacks, chinese! I said to myself then, "Lets me get the hell outta here! They're talking about some of my friends!". And I did, much smarter in the process.
As I told kid funkadelic on the grouch's page, If you will judge your fellow man by his actions, not his race, occupation, religion, or what tv shows he watches, you will have more friends than you can shake a stick at!

It's Friday! I'm Mellow. Something a little Lighter?

This is no doubt the best "Nut Shell" account of our Economy to date...

It is a slow day in the East Texas town of Madisonville.

It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted.

Times are tough, everybody is in debt and everybody lives on credit.

On this particular day a rich tourist from the East is driving through town.

He enters the only hotel in the sleepy town and lays a hundred dollar bill on the desk stating he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.

As soon as the man walks up the stairs, the hotel proprietor takes the hundred dollar bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher.

The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to pay his debt to the pig farmer.

The pig farmer then takes the $100 and heads off to pay his debt to the supplier of feed and fuel.

The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has lately had to offer her "services" on credit.

The hooker runs to the hotel and pays off her debt with the $100 to the hotel proprietor, paying for the rooms that she had rented when she brought clients to that establishment.

The hotel proprietor then lays the $100 bill back on the counter so the rich traveler will not suspect anything.

At that moment the traveler from the East walks back down the stairs, after inspecting the rooms.

He picks up the $100 bill and states that the rooms are not satisfactory...... Pockets the money and walks out the door and leaves town.

No one earned anything. However the whole town is now out of debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is conducting business today.

If that doesn't scare the hell out of you, then I don't know what will.

Healthcare? I think not!

I have a good friend, http://grouchatrighttruth.blogspot.com, who is a doctor. He is a good doctor. His bedside manner sux, but you can't hold that against him. I do value his opinions sometimes.
However, I'm not blogging for him. I am telling you all, that as a rule, healthcare sucks!
Wait! Read on before you chastise me.
As little as 40 years ago, if I were sick, I would call the doc, tell him I was sick, and he would be at my house in a short while. He would examine me, maybe pull some pills outta his bag to give me, tell me what was wrong with me, and stay for supper. He might charge me 10 or 20 bucks for a house call. This was the good old days.
Now we live in a modern, high speed, high tech world. You wake up feeling sick, call the doc's office and they tell you you can get in to see the doc in about 45 days. OR, they tell you the doc will call you back and he never does.
Or, you get in to see some quack who is running an insurance mill. He don't really give a shit what is the matter, who you are, or anything else for that matter, as long as YOU HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE!
Is this the doctors fault? NO! The real doctors are all over worked, overbooked, and have to live in fear of some quack lawyer launching a malpractice suit. Malpractice insurance costs more than health insurance!
But this same doctor is really seeing emergency room patients, who are mostly on welfare, who didn't WANT to make a doctors appointment and wait. Since they arent going to pay anyway, they will call an ambulance to carry them to the ER and let the rest of us pay for their visit! They will sit in the ER, get seen pretty soon and then have an ambulance ride home! These are mostly Obama supporters. Sorry, if you can't take the heat, stay outta the kitchen.
How do I know these facts? Am I a doctor? No. But I HAVE been a police officer! I have witnessed these goings on. Been there, done that, as the saying goes.
Why is OUR healthcare so costly? Because we are paying for 20 deadbeats for every one of our doctor visits. But again, this is a Democratic society, isn't it?

Not ALL Obama's fault

here's one you oughta bookmark, cause I prolly won't ever say it again.
We are in a world of shit! It aint ALL Obama's fault. It aint all Bush's fault. It aint all slick Willie's fault.
We as Americans love to sit back and watch the world go by. When things are good, we are pleased and happy and satisfied. When things turn to crap we like to point a finger.
Willie could go on tv and give a speech and make ya think everything was good, even his blow jobs.
Poor old George could get on tv and you'd know there was something stinky. After all, he declared that the war was over 6 years or so ago.
Poor old Barrack can get on tv and you automatically know he's full of shit.
Face it folks. We, as voting, laid back, apathetic Americans have voted for what has been offered to us for MANY YEARS!
It is time for us to take a stand. We kicked out the Brits for much less bullshit than what we are putting up with now!
Me, myself, I am a poor working Redneck! I don't know all the answers. But I do know and realize that we have GOT to take control of the Government back. Remove it from the hands of the Govt itself and put it back into the hands of the working majority, not in the hands of Oil, Pharmacuticals, Unions, or even the NRA or AARP. WE NEED TO CONTROL OUR OWN DESTINIES!
Furthermore, we need to try to keep our children, grandchildren and even more future generations from having to put up with Government Tyranny and exhorbitant taxes!
Vote these SOB's out! This is the "DEMOCRATIC" way!
Shoot em all. This is the Anarchistic way! (BTW, this aint my first choice)
Sit back, wring your hands and eat cat food! This seems to be the AMERICAN WAY!
What would have Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone, George Washington or for that matter, John Wayne have said?
I think you all know what they would have said.
What do YOU say?
Lemmee hear, you WON'T hurt my feelings.

Medical Doctors, Not All, Just Some

I went to a local MD a couple of months ago, because my feet were numb and tingly. I explained my symptoms to her, and in her defense, she did exactly what I would have done in her place. I told her I didn't think I had a sugar problem, of which numb tingling feet, aka neuropathy, is an indication. However, on examination, she said she couldn't feel a pulse in my feet and was going to order an ultrasound on my feet and legs. Good call, since I HAVE had bypasses. She also drew blood to do lab work. Lab work came in fine, no diabetes, no anemia, no gout, good B-12. Everything FINE with my blood. Ultrasound said I had perfect circulation in my legs and feet. She said I probably had neuropathy and reccomended a neuropathist. Then she said since I was taking Niacin for vertigo and good cholesteral, that might be causing it and told me to lay off the Niacin for a while. I didn't much believe this, but it was an easy try.
Three weeks later, feet still tingling, so I made an appointment with a podiatrist. Gitting close to Dayton and I wanted some relief. Told him up front I didn't have sugar. He looked at my feet for a few minutes and decided to send me to a neuropothist (probably spelled wrong)
This WAS A TRIP. They wired me up, jolted me with electricity, stuck needles in my feet and immediately told me I HAD BLOOD SUGAR! Told him about doc number 1 He didn't care! I had sugar, no matter that he hadn't tested my blood or anything else medically!
The podiatrist called me 5 days later and told me I had blood sugar. Told him I did not have sugar, so he wanted to know if I wanted him to make me an appointment with some nerve doc that my insurance doesn't cover. I told him thanks anyway, that I thought I would see a chiropractor, which I did. He hasn't fixed my feet, but at least HE DID LISTEN when I told him my problems. He has gotten the feet feeling a little better, but the saga of the aching feets continues.
