People who care about family
and country should be willing
to fight for both, not run!

 ~ For those of you who do not understand that when someone takes the oath to defend our constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, there is no expiration date or time limit in the oath. Remember this when the SHTF because our government did the swearing in...

 ~ You may not like Ann Coulter or agree with her, but one should admire her for jumping into the lion’s den to be attacked by liberal women who ignore fact. Beliefs trump facts every time. The truth will set you free, unless you suffer from “contempt prior to investigation”.

 ~ So how did the Obama administration try to cover up the $1.3 billion payoff to Iran? They made 13 transfers of $99,999,999.99 from a discreet Treasury fund. Does this look like transparency to you? Do you think the Clinton administration will be any different?

 ~ One problem with the EU and Ireland’s sovereignty (and one reason Britain baled out with Brexit) is that they don’t have final say or control over their tax rate. But everyone will cheer (except stockholders and Apple employees) since Apple has to pay $14.5 billion in tax. I don’t see Apple staying in Ireland. I wonder how many jobs will be lost when they head east…

 ~ Kaepernich said, “I did the right thing” and will continue to sit through the National Anthem. I suspect his endorsements will suffer. I for one will not buy anything he’s selling…

Kaepernich was adopted and raised by white parents, but deems our country oppresses black people and people of color. Yea, it looks like white people really oppressed him…

 ~ I am very curious to see how passengers react in the new driverless cars when they go through a construction site. Butts will surely pucker...

More Monday Humor

Monday Morning Humor

You may not find this hilarious, but it describes me to a T!

The Dead Parrot

At dawn the telephone rings, "Hello, Senor Rod? This is Ernesto, the caretaker at your country house."

"Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?"

"Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor Rod, that your parrot, he is dead.

"My parrot? Dead? The one that won the International competition?"

"Si, Senor, that's the one."

"Damn! That's a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. What did he die from?

"From eating the rotten meat, Senor Rod."

"Rotten meat? Who the hell fed him rotten meat?"

"Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse."

"Dead horse? What dead horse?"

"The thoroughbred, Senor Rod."

"My prize thoroughbred is dead?

"Yes, Senor Rod, he died from all that work pulling the water cart."

"Are you insane? What water cart?"

"The one we used to put out the fire, Senor."

"Good Lord! What fire are you talking about, man?"

"The one at your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains caught on fire."

"What the hell? Are you saying that my mansion is destroyed because of a candle?"

"Yes, Senor Rod."

"But there's electricity at the house! What was the candle for?"

"For the funeral, Senor Rod."


"Your wife's, Senor Rod. She showed up very late one night and I thought she was a thief, so I shot her with your new Kreighoff Limited Edition Custom Gold Engraved Trap Special with the custom-made Wenig Exhibition Grade Stock. "

SILENCE........... LONG SILENCE.........VERY LONG SILENCE..............

"Ernesto, if you scratched that shotgun, you're in deep shit."

Gun protest at UT in Austin yesterday

NY Times photo
This is what college has become: idiocy

You just think you're free...

  ~ That was one devastating earthquake in Italy. My heart goes out to them. They need to stop letting oil companies frack.

  ~ They hacked Leslie Jones personal website and got away with nude photos of her. Who in their right mind would want to see her naked? Fugly comes to mind.

  ~ Here’s a good one. Now that Americans believe health insurance should be a right, a group has filed a lawsuit seeking to make education a constitutional right. Sorry boys and girls, education is an opportunity in America. Sadly, many are just too lazy to take advantage of it. And what’s its value if you don’t have to work for it?

 ~ Ole Bernie is at it again, creating a new group “Our Revolution” to fight economic inequality and special interests. The Hypocrisy: “Our Revolution” is actually a special interest group. And another: education and hard work are the answer to economic inequality, not giving away free stuff. Lastly, capitalism has proven to defeat poverty, socialist governments have more control over the impoverished.

  ~ Bankers look to be terrified of Trump. Citigroup claims that he could cause a global recession if elected POTUS. That should be enough to get the Occupy Wall Street vote, but they’re not smart enough to understand what’s going on.

If we create a global recession by bringing back businesses and jobs to America instead of exporting them, I say great. Government created this monster and it needs to be destroyed.

On the other hand, Trump calling the Hillary a bigot may be the pot calling the kettle black. The kettle may be black, but it takes one to know one.

  ~ I accept the fact that many politicians are crooks, but I resent it when their greed hurts our country and the people. They should be good enough crooks to use their skills to help America, take advantage of someone elsewhere.

  ~ Isn’t it a great hypocrisy that the government rewards and encourages corporate whistleblowers but destroys those who expose government corruption?

  ~ After reading an article in the New York Times where they question whether Saudi Arabia is fueling and/or funding terrorism, wouldn’t it be something if it were true? After sending them billions and providing military protection, we would kinda be a sponsor to it…

Would you do business with terrorists if it paid enough?

In case you are bored...

 ~ With the proliferation of drone assassinations, I guess Gitmo is really not as necessary as it once was. Some people believe that the people being killed are suspects because they received no trial.

Most people don’t have a problem with it, but that will change once they use them for assassinations on American soil and bystanders are killed due to collateral damage. I am one of those people.

~ Am I alone in thinking that Alcohol, Firearms and Tobacco should be a convenience store, not a government agency?

 ~Native Americans are protesting an oil pipeline in North Dakota. Even though it’s not on their land, they are concerned about their water supply becoming contaminated.

  ~ Duuuuude! A Filipino fisherman found a 75 pound pearl and has been hiding it for 10 years. The largest pearl on record is 14 pounds and valued at $93 million in 2003. He may not be the sharpest pencil in the drawer, but he’s probably the wealthiest fisherman in the Philippines.
"I am thankful for small mercies. I compared notes with one of my friends who expects everything of the universe, and is disappointed when anything is less than the best, and I found that I begin at the other extreme, expecting nothing, and am always full of thanks for moderate goods." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

What's your price?
Is it negotiable?

I watched one of the best UFC fights Saturday night between Diaz and McGregor. If you are into cage fighting, it is definitely worth watching. The preliminaries weren’t bad either, one knockout took 13 seconds.

When the Philippines declare a war on drugs, they mean war, not rhetoric. Police and vigilantes have killed almost 1,800 people in seven weeks. 600,000 dealers and users have turned themselves in, fearing for their lives. You may not agree with that country, but their children will be safer…

Thanks to Obamacare and its health insurers, the Epipen is now $600 instead of $100. How many children and parents will suffer from not being able to afford one now? Yea, let the government run healthcare and watch prices soar and patient care suffer.

The State Dept says the $400 million paid to Iran for hostages was leverage, not ransom. Critics say that this is “the very definition of ransom”. Changing the terminology does not change the action.

The horror! A federal judge blocked federal guidelines for transgender access to restrooms. I thought all federal judges endorsed deviant behavior, guess I may need to rethink my belief system.

Sunday's Sermon

Am I racist because I’m white? 
Quite simply: No. If you believe otherwise, then you are projecting your own bias towards others. The same holds true if you believe that I’m sexist because I’m male or pro-life, intolerant because I’m a Christian or my beliefs are different from yours, or homophobic because I disagree with that lifestyle.

If you call me names and insult me because you don’t have a valid, winnable argument, that’s one thing; but if you actually believe I am what you call me, you suffer from self-deception and self-delusion. It seems easier for some to find peace in projection than to accept the truth of their own condition.

Don’t take my word for it, ask experts in the field of psychology and social behavior. Don’t think you are always right, because no one is always right. Don’t blame me for your problems and issues, I did not create them.  Don’t expect me to change my mind and support or promote your delusions. 

Don’t expect me to sympathize with your position by calling me names. It is difficult for reasonable, rational people to sympathize with people who call them names. Being verbally attacked or abused is normally followed by self-defense.

Don't you remember your grandmother saying that you catch more flys with honey than with vinegar?

Another disturbing video...

Penalty for killing the man, 22 day suspension.
Is this not involuntary manslaughter?
Is this what you consider justice?

Mind your own business,
unless you come with gifts...

 ~ How much control should the government have in dictating how to live. In France, gubment officials are condemning and banning the burkini. Is there any difference between the government dictating what we wear to the beach versus following our religious beliefs? Hypocrisy at its finest.

 ~ Insurance companies are backing away from Obamacare mandates. What do you think the government do to keep the program going? I predict they will allow less stringent coverage and our premiums will eventually be doubled from what we were paying before AHCA was implemented.

~ It appears that the US National Security Agency has been hacked. Can you imagine what a foreign government would pay for information like that? The right information would be worth tens of billions!

I wish there was a class on computer coding and hacking when I was in school. One good hack and you can retire to a sympathetic country and live like a king. Of course, there is a good chance there would be a bounty for your death.

 ~ The UN has admitted they had a role in the cholera outbreak in Haiti. This is another byproduct of UN involvement and its inability to be an ineffective force. Cholera, by the way, is a horrible way to die!

I predict the UN solution is to ask for more money to throw at the problem, more ineffective programs. Most of the funds will be stolen, hence another infected bandaide for suffering Haitians.

 ~ If you think government prosecutors don’t break the law, abuse power and lie about it, you may want to read this article about a rising star Attorney General who fell from grace. How much jail time do you think she will see?
