Oh Lord.....You Just Thought It Was Bad....

So, there may be a doctor who has returned from West Africa in New York City....

You thought it was bad when Thomas Duncan died in Dallas....the media will lose their damn minds in NYC....and just when we though this Ebola mess was about to go away...he went bowling and rode in a uber-cab here in New York.

He had been checking his temp when he returned....the question is this....if he thought he might get the illness, why was he out running around?

The New York Fire Dept. has shut down the street he lives on....

So, if the doctor does turn up positive, you won't hear anything else in the media.

I hope for the health of the man, and our sanity, he tests negative...

Even the Damn Dogs are Worthless....

So, for the third time, in what is it, two weeks? An intruder crawled over the fence at the White House and started heading towards the executive mansion.

This is the 7th fence jumper in 2014....Yes sir, we've gone nuts in this nation....

This time as C. Montgomery Burns from The Simpson's says, they " Released the Hounds...."

And the intruder proceeds to whip the dog's asses. He whipped them so bad 2 of the dogs had to be carried to the veterinarian.

Come on man.

These dogs are suppose to be protecting the " Most Powerful Man on Earth."

He kicked one of the dogs and it ran-off.

I got a dog that walks with me in the mornings that's tougher than these dogs...and he's not even my dog, yet he protects me from whatever when we take our walks....

Maybe I need to put Waylon in my Honda and drive him to Washington and offer his services to the Secret Service?

It's Official...I No Longer Trust Anyone....

I got to quit listening to the news....

Fox News had a lawyer on today calling for the arrest of people for thoughts....yes, their thoughts....and Fox didn't challenge them....shades of Soviet Russia....or Nazi Germany...

They are assuming that today's attack on the Canadian Capitol was terroristic and probably associated with ISIS....the Islamic terrorist group.

The lawyer on the Fox News station was calling for the arrest of people who are calling for the attack on American soil....even without any indication they may carry out these threats.

And the host on Fox didn't question her...

Last time I checked, there was still a 4th Amendment.

Man, you start doing stuff like this, how long will it be before people are arrested for doing things like...writing a blog that questions politics in places like....South Jasper County.....or people are arrested for talking bad about the president.....or a formerly fat government teacher, because he was at one time a government employee...( schools are government taxpayer funded....)

Sorry, but I do not like the direction we are going....

Just A Waving

So, I was in Mid-County today at the polls holding a sign and waving at potential voters.

If you remember, in many of my classes, I showed you a video called " Vote for Me" concerning how people run for office in different parts of America. One of the big things the politicians do in Honolulu is " Sign Wave" in which for weeks and weeks before the election, politicos stand on street corners waving at passing motorists...it was sort of like that...

I learned the following thing about today's experience.

1. Most of the people holding signs and waving are being paid....or they have been promised a job....I do not get either...

2. Many of the people being paid, do not have teeth.

3. People driving into the polls won't wave....however as they leave, they smile and wave...

4. It's very boring.

So, if you see me in Nederland or Pt. Neches or Groves holding my brother's sign, don't be shocked.

Smokin' Pot at Church.....

So, one of the headlines Ch. 12 concerns a woman who was basically kicked out of her church because she uses medical marihuana.

Okay....

Find another church.

Look, part of the reason why I do not go to church anymore is because I don't agree with what most of them teach now...and don't get me started on the church leadership....or this new emphasis upon the church disciplining members...

Let me remind you folks....your salvation is not because you go to church.....preachers can't save you, even through they pride themselves in the number of people they baptized.

Your salvation is from Christ.....not from a church.....not from some man..... Read Ephesians 2:8-9...

Butch

No, no, no, not " mannish" lesbians....so if that's what you expected....this ain't it....

In the 1960s my late father worked with a man named Butch...

Butch was often picked up and carried to work, by my dad, when Butch left his car with his wife for the day.

Butch was in his 70s then and had played baseball in the old Negro Leagues. I loved to go by and visit dad at work and talk with Butch just to hear his baseball stories, and he had some good ones. ( he had played ten years for 4 different ball clubs...)

Every World Series, Butch would take his vacation, just so he could watch the ball games. In those days, most of the Series games were played in the daytime, thus Butch's time off during October.

I will not watch any of the World Series. At one time I would not miss the games.

One year, I played " sick" just to watch a day game.

Baseball is now a bore. The games are over 3 hours now. I could not tell you one player on Kansas City, one of the contestants.

I was thinking the other day, and could not even tell you who won last year's World Series...the Super Bowl? Seattle. NBA? San Antonio, NHL? LA Kings....I can even tell you who won last year's Barclay Soccer( English) Manchester City....Baseball? Don't know? Don't care...

Tonight. I will watch JJ Watt, and the Texans. I won't even check on the Royals and Giants....I probably won't even check the score...( I thought the Series started tonight...it doesn't begin until tomorrow....still will not watch...)

Sorry Mr. Butch...

Recall?

So airbags are now more dangerous than what they are worth. They are recalling over 4.7 million vehicles to have their airbags fixed...and they airbags go off in hot, humid areas...in other words, where we live.

ABC News was showing photos of some of the airbag mishaps, and they were pretty gruesome.( It was lead story on ABC)

The following automobile makers are re-calling their vehicles....

GM, Chrysler, Ford, BMW, Mazda, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Toyota, and Honda....

So, I looked to see if any of our Hondas were on the list....because I have not received a recall....well, it says " some" 2005 Honda Elements....which tells me....nothing...

If you drive any of these manufacturer's vehicles, you may want to go on line and check ( and in my case find out nothing.) I am hoping if any of my vehicles are on the list, I'll be informed....

Once again, I wonder if these airbags are actually worth it? Good idea, poor performance...
