My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

Dear Abbey!!!!!!

Subject: Dear Abbey

Dear Abby,

I am a crack dealer in Paducah, KY who has recently been diagnosed as a carrier of HIV virus. My parents live in Bowling Green.  One of my sisters lives in Taylorsville and is married to a transvestite.  My father and mother have recently been arrested for growing and selling marijuana. They are financially dependent on my other two sisters, who are prostitutes in Louisville.  I have two brothers: one is currently serving a non-parole life sentence at Eddyville for the murder of a teenage boy in 1994. My other brother is currently in jail awaiting charges of sexual misconduct with his three children.

I have recently become engaged to marry a former prostitute, who currently lives in Lexington. She is still a part time "working girl".  All things considered, my problem is this. I love my fiancĂ©' and look forward to bringing her into the family. I certainly want to be totally open and honest with her.

Should I tell her about my cousin from Ashland, who is an Obama supporter?


Signed,
Worried About My Reputation


Have a nice Day!

Just Something Silly

A note on my personal info, I no longer am employed by the world's largest retailer as of Wednesday.  I have instead seized the opportunity to work for the world's largest home improvement center (I think).  This does not mean I will be cheering for the bright orange car and the kid driving it on Sundays.  I am a loyal 24 fan and will stay that way until he retires.  

On to some silly things.

I went to a craft show last weekend to hawk my Watkins Products.  While talking to a widow lady (don't go there) the subject of new friends came up.  We chatted and she told me about her new friends.  I then told her about mine.

First there was the new friend I met while learning to cook, George Foreman.  Of course every body who has met George has met "his" good friend, Mic Row Wave.  Now between these to friends I can cook nearly any dish out there.  Well at least a lot of dishes anyway,  We all know home cooking is wonderful. But, one needs to eat out once in a while and go some place difference.  That brings to my new friend Maggie Gellan.  Maggie Gellan is a petite little one.  She's actually is so small she can sit on  the dashboard of my car! Once I let Maggie know where I want to go Maggie tells me 2 miles, .5, miles and then about 100  feet before I need to make a turn. Maggie even knows where an ATM is in case I need money. It took me a while to get use to her somewhat electronic voice but Maggie didn't miss a turn on my trip to Fayetteville NC on Wednesday.  After visiting my soldier sons, Jacob by birth right and Kody, by "hillbilly adoption" I look forward to Maggie getting me back to Ohio on Saturday. Then Mic and George will probably help me cook a meal.

Friends are not hard to come by in this world.  One only has to look around and have a little imagination.  I'm curious,  Do you have any friends like George, Maggie or Mic Row Wave

Have a GREAT weekend and God Bless America!

Why I Don't Read the Huffington Post

Saturday June, 11,2010
10:30AM

Why I don't read the Huffington Post, very often.  It's just a matter of trash vs treasure.  While watching FOX NEWS this morning they had a blurb on for about 10 seconds stating Senator Dick Durbin had introduced a new bill. This new bill would allow large corporations that sold gas to pass on a tax to the consumer. On it's face this sounds anti-consumer.  However, a little thought into the whole consumer/tax thing brings me to the conclusion, ALL TAXES ARE PASSED ONTO THE CONSUMER!

Folks, there are only so many $$$$ in circulation and they gotta  circulate. Basically this is an exercise in futility. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure this out.  The consumer is King or Queen in my book.  It's just a darn shame we, Conservatives, don't use that power more often. Rush Limbaugh has approximately 20 million listeners, according to Rush.  Sean Hannity, has 13.5 listeners* admittedly many Rush listeners also but, for numbers sake.  Let's say 1/3 don't listen to Rush, or approximately 5 million.  That's a total of 25 million listeners.  Now, if 1/2 of the 25 million listeners write a letter to, let's say Wal-Mart.  The letter stating these consumers are just sick and tired of Wal-Marts poor quality  tomatoes** and are going to shop Meijers, Krogers, Food Lion, or what ever store is in your area, do you think Wal-Mart would upgrade the quality of tomatoes?  I'm not an expert but I do believe they would.  Gees, I wish we Conservatives would get on board with this type of power!  I guess we are too busy working, raising our children, and clinging to our guns and Bibles.  "Nuff said.

Back to the Huffington Post.  Anyway, I was looking for some solid evidence linking Senator Durbin to this alleged bill.  I did a Google Search and checked out about a dozen hits and found nothing. I even went to Senator Durbin's web page and found nothing.  So at this point in time I am putting the issue aside. 

While I was searching I decided to check the far left blog, The Huffington Post.  If any blog would have an article about Senator Durbin and taxes I figure it might.  I bet you were wondering when I was going to get to the Huffington Post.  Now keep in mind I go there about once a month or less.  Here are the reasons why:

Four of the current articles posted on the side bar of the Huffington Post as of 11:30AM, June 12, 2010:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/06/09/sarah-palin-breast-implan_n_606596.html
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robert-lanza/what-happens-when-you-die_b_596600.html
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/06/10/kayla-manson-13-year-old_n_607266.html
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dan-abramson/twitter-dies-at-age-4_b_606135.html

Allow me to give you a brief outline of the articles.
The first deals with the possibility of Governor Sarah Palin having breast implamts, Who really cares
The second deals with what happens when you die.  Sorry folks, your DEAD,  With luck you go to Heaven
The third is absolutely disgusting and deals with a 13 year old using a vile word used to describe a woman's sexual parts.  To make matters worse it was aired on The Today Show on NBC..  To compound matters  "We just have to be careful with our language, but that's all right, sweetheart,"  was all Meredith Vieira said after the girl made the comments.  That's all that was said!  Comments like that cost shock jock, Howard Stern, a million $$$ a pop!  If you want to read  the articles via The Huffington Post copy and past the web addresses.  I don't really want that trash and garbage linked to my blog.

I really am interested in seeing if the FCC  will intercede in this.

I have one other tidbit from the Huffington Post and then....who knows....maybe I'll visit it more often looking for my gym socks, the lid to my garbage can or whatever foul odor I smell.  You know you are to be feared (sarcasm) by the left when The Huffington Post  attacks you!  Check out this article on Senator John McCain. the last paragraph says it all.  The attack JD Hayworth for a ligament question.  By the way, I respect Senator McCain for his military service and thank God for men like him.  I do not respect him for his wishy-washy stand on everything up to and including our southern border security. JD Hayworth web site is here.

Have a great weekend and see ya in church!

ME! On the Side of the Atheists!

While surfing through the net one day, in the merry merry month of June, I was taken by SURPRISE....by an article I surmise......would have brought my blood to a boil!!  (OK,  kind hum the tune, humor me, I'm an old guy).  That's right, me Mr. Conservative, about two steps to the right of Rush and Mark Levin.  I am siding with an atheist organization.  Here is the bottom line.

The Catholic League's Bill Donohue and I suppose his organization what the Empire State Building bathed in blue and white lights to honor Mother Teresa on what would have been her 100 birthday.  Anthony Malkin, president of Malkin Holdings, which owns the Empire State Building says "no". The Empire State Building does not honor political or religious persons or organizations.

Seems pretty straight forward to me.  Mr.Donohue  says they have in the past honored such people and organizations.  He feels it is an affront to Mother Teresa.  I will be the first to admit I know very little about Mother Teresa only that she was Catholic, I think, and spent her life giving to and helping the poor.  Sounds pretty worthy to me. None the less,  and regardless of past practices I do believe  Mr. Malkin and Malkin Holdings has the right NOT to shine blue and white lights on the Empire State Building if they so choose.  It is their building. 

Having said that,  if I were Catholic, I might be inclined to find some of the tenants of the building and boycott them or the building in general.   I would also  be inclined to let the tenants and corporations in the building I do not take it highly that they reside in a building that slights Mother Teresa, regardless of what religion she was.  I may even make infruence to "I wonder what Mr. Malkin would do if Mother Teresa was a Muslim and it was a Muslim organization making such a request!   Read the article here.

This article is not even worthy of commenting on.  I am so sick of the NAACP, (here goes the Pops is a racist thing), I am just going to post the link and let my followers decide. clik here OH PLEASE, give me a break, NAACP.

Having stirred up that whorenets nests I think I just leave.

AHHHHH !!!!!

A gentle sigh, the sound of a male cardinal looking for a friend and Ave Marie, playing in the background.  The cardinal comlinments of God and mother nature.  Ave Marie, compliments of http://wahrheitmacher.blogspot.com/  

Yes, I am blogging from the patio tonight.  I have just finished planting 4 rows of lima beans and planting some flowers in the corner of the garden.  Tomorrow is to be nice with a high of 68 and with some luck I will get 4 more rows of green beans in.  Once that is done some lettuce in the raised bed is on order.  I have been scrounging around and have enough landscape timbers to build one more raised bed for a total of 6.  Then I am going to transplant my asparagus into the new raised bed for better control.  AND.....if I get real energetic and with a little luck mow the yard which got neglected this weekend.

I must back up here for a minute and strongly suggest you visit the Monsignors web site for an safety Public Service Announcement.  I haven't heard of any of these turning up here in the Midwest but I am sure they will.  Ain't the internet great. This is very important if you have small children that go outside to play.

Non Headline News

 The following was emailed to me by my good friend and fellow Conservative Mighty Mom over at My Wonderful Life, clik here.  I am posting it as it is most important and should be given much thought and consideration by all Americans.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency .It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."Author Unknown
   
Now on with the rest of the non-news.  
Long Gun Registration One Step Closer to Law in California
All Americans need to take a good look at this article.  It is another liberal effort in liberal California to limit and control Constitutional rights.  In a state Billions of $$$$ in debt and run by a lame duck impotent RINO governor(and that's his good point!), this state is trying to add more burecaracy and tax burdens to the tax payers.  Is this happening in your state?  Better check.
Another assault and cowardly school board capitulates to the Communist ACLU. The Enfield Connecticut school board refuses to go to battle and allows 2 students and the Communist ACLU.  Once again the minority rules the majority and a liberal judge doesn't know the Constitution has NO  separation of church and state amendment. 

Not necessarily non-news but worthy of mention.

Los Angeles schools to indoctrinate students is the headline.  This did hit the news waves for a while but not nearly hard enough. Clik here Schools in general and especially colleges now blatantly disguise indoctrination as education.  It's is happening everywhere.  Is it happening in your schools?  Think not!  Does your school have a Baccalaureate program at graduation this year?  Think again! 

From the Jerusalem Press is the article of the rockets red glare.  Sound familiar?  It did in our case and we went/were at war.  Why is it not a  good enough reason for Israel to continue to fight an undeclared war to exterminate their country and people?  Rockets fired from Gaza, clik here.

From the sort of home town, which I love to slam but can't this time.  I remember when this happened.  It was a terrible tragedy and  Reverend Johnannes Christian was blinded most people thought forever. He forgave those who blinded him. This is a GOOD NEWS story and is worthy of reading and pausing a moment for a little reflection on my part and my faith, perhaps yours.  Clik here

Blogging from the patio tonight and the peace and quiet is fantastic.  Fireflies are putting on a show unlike any that mankind can make.  The occasional sound of an owl and rustle of grass in the field just past the yard means something is there.  Most likely a rabbit or perhaps a night stalker of some kind.  The skeeters have left me alone for most of the evening.  The good news is the wind is blowing from the east to the west and the hog farm about a mile away has yet to make is main product noticeable if you get me drift.  So all in all a good day and good evening.  Time to say Thank you God and call it a night.

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
