Once Again

I need Rachel to remind me from time to time to do this....

As I have said...many times in the past, this blog is not going to please you every time I post. Sometime the language gets a little "salty " and then I may turn around and quote scripture in the next blog....sorry, " the good I should do, I do not..."

It's going to make many of you mad...especially when I write on politics, and religion.

I made someone mad over the resignation teacher blog....and it wasn't even aimed at them....

I say this because I have some religion blogs coming up in the next couple of weeks...it may touch a nerve and you know what, if it does, I'm not going to read letters of complaint, I did so in the past, but, it did nothing but re-enforced my reasoning behind my not attending church....( I already have a difficult time with organized religion....I wish I didn't, but I do...I may write a blog on this later...and me and Jesus have gotten closer in the last year than when I was in seminary or any other time. Losing 120lbs involves a lot of talking to Jesus in the process.....And guess what, I pray for many of you every day, especially some people sent by the IMB to Zambia, I worry about them...a lot...I worry about most of you more than you know...)


But I digress.

In the past week or two, I have received a number of suggestions for topics. I try and get to many of them, trouble is, it may take longer than you might expect, and sometimes, I am sorry, I just get busy and forget. For that, I apologize. You may in a few weeks remind me...

Thank you folks for the suggestions....

As they said in the old days of radio and TV..." Keep those cards and letters coming!"

And I thank you for reading the blog.

Going to See Sinatra?

This hat is actually older than most of you reading the blog.

It is my late Grandfather's hat. He died in 1978.

I can remember him wearing it in the 1960s. It is the style hats that gentlemen wore in the 40s, 50s, 60s in Franklin, Woods, and Hopkins Counties in NE Texas...

My head has gone from a 7 3/4 to 7 3/8ths.....my Grandfather's hat size....I am pretty sure he would be thrilled I am now wearing it.

You Stink...Resign!

This is not geared at most teachers, but at a group in the profession who need to get out....

You suck....

You suck bad....

You know deep down that you suck. You " think" you're doing a good job, but deep down, you know you are awful.

Resign...

Resign so the school district can go ahead and find someone to replace you.

Go to work at a plant, get a job in retail, go back to school and get training for another field, play a piano in a whorehouse, but stop taking taxpayer money claiming you're good at what you do, because you suck....

I hope it makes someone mad, hopefully more than one, because you know deep down you suck at teaching....

Write out your resignation letter and turn it in tomorrow morning....

WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE NEXT WEEK!!!

Pat Robertson is at it again....he has now predicted that we are going to die when an asteroid hits the earth next week......or soon afterward....

First John Hagee, now Pat....

It is not the first time I've written on old Pat. The older this guy gets, the goofier he gets....

My question is this.....Why does KFDM Ch. 6 still have his show on every morning? It has to be because the 700 Club is paying the station a huge chunk of money....I wonder what his rating are? Is anyone still watching?

Folks, once again, relax. Old Pat is just talking to get in the news. He needs to worry about people's souls and pulling a Harold Camping ain't going to work....

Bundy's ? No This is What You Make a Stand For....

The Bureau of Land Management is after 90,000 acres of land Northeast of Wichita Falls on the Red River portion of the Texas-Oklahoma border.

Part of the confusion concerns a change in the property caused by a shift in the Red River.

Tommy Henderson and his family own the land in question. It's been in his family since Texas was well, The Republic of Texas. His family has a deed to the entire 90,000 acres.

Look, Texas land ownership is different than anything else in America. Our lands were originally Spanish/ Mexican land grants. Sure most have changed hands of the years, but all are recognized over the years by the State of Texas as official deeds.

This is where the militia needs to be. Not at a grey area in which we who consider ourselves as conservatives are divided over. This should be our concern.

If you are a landowner this should scare you to death....

Will Catch Flak for This One

I am pretty sure the long haired guy on the far right is a Marxist, Leninist, Trotskist, Maoist, Titoist, Ho Chi Mihnist, Hoxais, history major....circa: 1978....Lamar University, Cardinal Stadium.



Deweyville Prom

So, there is a controversy concerning the Deweyville Prom.

It seems the district wants to keep the prom dresses, well, conservative.

I understand the want to keep the dresses somewhat to a minimum, but it's the prom. The kids are paying for it. It is not funded by the taxpayers. If you're paying for it, it's well, yours....you should have some lenience on what you wear....

Last night the Deweyville board basically lifted the strict prom dress ban. Basically it said no underwear showing, and no breasteses hanging out........

Deweyville originally, maybe they still have one, had a committee of three teachers approving the dresses....my luck, my dumb-ass would wind up on that committee....Son of a bitch, talk about a nightmare....

Trouble is, if it was me, I wouldn't say anything about a girl's dress......I can just see a parent up yelling at me saying, " what in the hell were you doing looking?" ( it is why I never enforced female dress code when I was teaching....and trust me, I need to write a blog one day as to why I moved my podium into the corner of the room one day....)
