Ashamed.....I am Ashamed...

So, I check the mail today and my alumni magazine from the Southwestern Baptist Seminary was in the box. It never made it into the house. Oh, the magazine is well done, just a touch better than the magazine Lamar Univeristy sends to its alums.....I didn't even open it. I just tossed it in the trash barrel beside the garage.

At one time, I was sort of proud to be A Baptist. Proud to be an alumni of a Baptist seminary.

My denomination has become so hateful and spiteful, especially at the seminary and leadership level...and Baptists have always been judgemental, but I think they are getting worse....( my last blog is an example)

I don't even know what denomination I would even be associated with anymore. If I was guessing, I really do not know if I would go to any church....or if any church would have me. I'm to the point I'd be so opinionated I might get tossed within 6 months...

But in typical Baptist fashion, once on the rolls, forever on the rolls...

At one time, I like to read the magazine to see where my classmates are now, and there were pages, just like Lamar's, but now, they only have what big shots or what faculty are doing in those pages. The pages that once were, are down to maybe, 1/3 of a page.

I should write the seminary and tell them stop the magazine, but it's getting so thick now, I might put someone at the paper mill out of a job...

Hey Baby.....How You Doing....

So, I have a person, I'm sure they are well meaning, who still gets all in a tizzy when I tell a former student how nice they look.

The last message they literally told me, that I was " trying to get some."

Wow.....just wow...I was shocked when I read the message....

At this point in my life I'd disappoint everyone concerned....the girl, me, my wife....the only thing I would impress would be the .38 special slug fired by my wife as it hit my gonads....and rightfully so...

So, I am about to go through something I said fairly recently I was not planning on doing....having a purge....and it'll probably be a very small, almost minuscule purge....

Dammit it's Time Again.

So, Saturday night we turn-back our clocks.

Dammit....let's make it one way or another. It's time.

Heck today, Vox.com had an article agreeing.

I know some of you are all excited about getting an extra hour sleep, but in the Spring, you'll lose the hour.

I thought about running for office with the promise of one thing, fixing Daylight Savings either one way or another....but after the last couple of weeks, I learned, I don't like campaigning....and to be honest, I rather have this platform and be able to bitch about whatever strikes my fancy.

So, enjoy the colder weather, enjoy the extra hour of sleep...but remember, it'll get dark now at about 4:30pm...

Just Crazy....Just Nuts...

As many of you know, I don't get out too much. I pretty much go to the store, the doctor, maybe the drug store and then hole up here at the house.

In the last couple of weeks I've been out and about, and you know, there are some crazy people out there...and it's all kind of crazy...

There are religious crazy, funny crazy, and just need to be locked up crazy.

For the most part I've steered clear of these folks, and this week has been no different....

When I was out and about all the time, I don't remember these many loons. Maybe, I just ignored them, but I don't think so.

In a touch of insomnia last night( actually my back started hurting and took some alleve ) and while I was laying there, got to thinking....I wonder if this entitlement has caused folks to act nuts?

I mean seriously. Just watch the news. This morning had a man cut his mom's head-off. The kid in Washington State invited the people he shot to his lunch table, and now, the school his a shrine remembering the kid who did the shooting...a shrine to a killer??

Maybe I'm just naive...

In The 30s This Weekend?

It's about time.....seriously. When I was sign waving today in Nederland I was about to burn smooth up. Then again, like an idiot, I wore long sleeves....it was in the middle 80s....

So, the Aggie weather-guessers are guessing a pretty good cool down for the weekend including the possibility of it being in the 30s Sunday morning, especially toward Buna/Jasper Co./ Newton Co....and highs only in the 60s....

Come on...without a doubt this is my favorite time of year...

Quarantined Nurse is Going to Sue?

So a nurse who was quarantined once she returned returned from West Africa is now threatening to sue the State of New Jersey.

Never mind we don't know for sure if she has Ebola or not.

Are we to the point now, we just don't give a shit about anyone else except ourselves now?

Is she not worried about exposing her family and friends? I understand the want to maintain some rights, but at the health of others?

Now I congratulate her for going to Africa to work with the sick and dying, but you know, you need to show some common sense here.....and why in the world is the U.S. Government fighting the states on this quarantine? You know good and well the CDC doesn't really know much about protecting people from Ebola, as they are just making stuff up as they're going along.

Even the U.S. Army is planning on quarantining all service personel for 21 days after they serve in West Africa....

Is it just me, but does this make no sense? Or is the whole world on the verge of madness?

Fat Girl's Costumes at Walmart

So, this morning, the Walmart site had a section called " Fat Girl Halloween Costumes." They were for adults.

And people went wild.

Come on man, I was fat. I called myself fat. I still psychologically see myself as a fat boy. If you look at the men's clothing sites they call fat guys either " Big" or " Portly." It's generally still all the same...fat....

Are we so PC now we just can't tell the truth...for anything?

I know people get all upset about the least little thing and I know for physical reasons or glandular reasons some people can't lose weight, but hell, if you're fat, most folks can do something about it.....don't blame Walmart for telling the truth...
