The Doctor Is 'Out' (of his mind)

About three months ago, I was carrying a 36" television (the old style). Or, I was attempting it, anyway.
The damn thing was heavier than I thought, and as a result, I tore something up, leaving me in abdominal pain for several days after.
So, I just took it as easy as I could at work, and around the house, hoping eventually things would heal up. As it was, pain came and went, some days worse than others.

Tuesday, I woke up and could barely move. Time to see the doctor (finally), thinking maybe I really tore something up and would need hernia surgery or whatever.

After a check up, the groping("cough"), pushing ("cough"), and squeezing of the giblets ("cough,cough"), and a few "does this hurt?"'s, it was decided that I did not have a noticeable hernia (yet). And that it may eventually present itself in the near future if it is indeed there.
Good news,yeah, with a caveat.

Doctor strongly suggested I take this week off, and next, to take it easy. I explained that I am already off work for two weeks vacation, and have a deer hunt planned for next. He then warned me to avoid such things as climbing trees and dragging carcasses, and I should cancel this year.

Yeah, right.
He ain't gotta a clue.

I'll still be here, though not as near.
And my presence will be light.

Spoke Too Soon

"Last time we had one of these, the tenant came home to a living room swamped with water, it was runnin' down the stairs and flooded out the garage."
Ok, so I guess I dodged a bullet.

Last Friday, I noticed a dark spot forming in the center of my living room cieling. I called in the manager, he took a look at it, and said he'd be by first thing Monday morning to investigate further.

Diagnosing the problem as coming from the tub, they started to cut a whole through the wall from the spare bedroom to the tub. I suggested, just possibly, it might be wiser to attack the source from it's most obvious location, like maybe through the ceiling?, just above the wet spot? (But, hey, what do I know?)

"Nah, it's probably coming from the back of the tub. We'll get to right here." (after emptying and moving the dresser first).

Nope. Guess again.
Next option, the ceiling. ( I told ya so... but what do I know?)

Hey,ah... while you're at, can you install a surround-sound system up there. I mean, since you already got some holes cut and all-
OK, how 'bout a central vacuum?
Laundry chute?

Ok, how bout ordering me some new carpet then? I want that blue stuff you put in next door.

"You dont need it now. But if you'd waited a another week you'd be getting new furniture to match."

I can't win.

Is There Anything Left?

For fifteen years now, and counting, the entire Democrat Party Apparatus has been defending Bill and Hillary Clinton from their list of scandals: adultery,rape, perjury, obstruction of justice, selling pardons, draft dodging, stealing White House furniture, wire tapping, securities fraud, real estate fraud, selling classified material, illegal campaign cash, abuse of power, harassment of political opponents, sexual harassment, witness tampering, falsified criminal prosecutions, and the infamous spooge blue dress... (and this is just a partial listing).

Now, Hillary, of all folks, claims she has information on Obama that is so scandalous she is too embarrassed to release it.. LINK

Is Hillary even capable of knowing a disqualifying scandal after being part of so many of them herself?
Just what the hell is left, short of screwing dogs on video*, that is so scandalous as to ruin any guy's chance of getting this party's nomination for president?

*and even this might be seen as a resume enhancement to a certain segment of the progressive population,as long as it was consensual.

For the record: if I were a Democrat, I would vote for Obama. He smokes cigarettes. And I can sympathise with a guy like that.

What Pat Wants

The answer, I think, is Armageddon.

Pat Robertson want's nothing more than Armageddon and the second coming of Christ.
This will only happen, according to his own misreading, with a dominant Jewish state in the middle east followed by the final conflict between Good and Evil, which he believes to be in the form of Islam.
He already believes the gears are in motion, and with every shot fired tween Jews and Arabs, we only get closer.
Rudy, a federal prosecutor and 'tough cop', is the one guy who can be most relied upon to continue the war on terror against Muslims, and this will lead to even more 'shooting back' by pissed off Muslims at the great Satan and its 51st state (Israel).

Robertson has stopped preaching the word of Christ and the salvation of sinners long ago. Now, he's just preaching to his own, and telling them how their politics should be.
And his politics are geared heavily toward the preservation of Israel, and it's dominion over it's neighbors, so Christ can return and kick ass on those who don't believe like Robertson does.

Unfortunately for the Jews, their eventual destruction is part of the plan.
(Which leaves me wondering, with friends like Robertson, do the Jews really need an enemy?)

Dead Men Tell No Tales

Maybe not, but they can still enjoy a last ride at Disneyland.

Disneyland workers were recently forced to close the "Pirates of the Caribbean" attraction after a ride security camera caught a woman apparently dumping human remains, in what may be a growing trend.

Seriously, having spent the last 10 years living in the shadow of the Magic Kingdom, I've become aware of a near-religious Disney cult.
Bizarre, these people are.
They really are.

Loves Gays, Hates America

I've sat on this on for a few days now, just trying to figure what is/is not. Things just don't work this way in the real world of politics. I know, there is nothing real world in the real world of politics. But this strange bedding among stranger fellows actually is newsworthy.

Pat Robertson has endorsed Rudy Giuliani for president. Pat has built his entire political being around two key issues: abortion and gays. And he has stated on national television that the attacks of 9/11 were God's punishment on American society for it's tolerance of abortion and gay rights.

Rudy Giuliani has set himself apart from any GOP politician in recent memory for his unflinching support of abortions and gay rights.

Is Pat having a change of heart?
Does he now think abortion and gays are not so bad for America after all?
Or, has he decided America is no longer worth fighting for so may as well encourage to God rain down further punishment upon it?
Is it really about winning the War on Islam Terror, like he says?
Is it about beating Hillary?

As I've stated before, I was once active in political causes closely related to his. Rubbed elbows and worked very closely with those who actually listened to his word.(I,myself, never paid that much close attention to him,though) As a result, I think I know his mind, what drives him most, what he ultimately longs for.

I think I have the answer.
And the chattering class has so far missed it.

I'll wait to see what responses I receive, if any, from my minions readership before I tell it like is, from the Holy Gospel according to Me.

(And afterwards, you can all line up and tell me my words are guano.)

Smack,Smack,Smack! (per Ben)

Some Info You Didn't Have Before,Or Rolling Out The Pork Barrel

You've heard about congressional earmarks and that infamous "Bridge To Nowhere".
Now, what has largely been hidden from taxpayers is being made public with thanks to some enterprising advocates of government transparency through technology and Google.
Using GoogleEarth, you can now look them up and pinpoint them.

Just click > here(you will need GoogleEarth installed. If you don't have it, download it at It's free, easy, and fun to use for just recreational purposes as well.)

What you will see is a satellite view of the good ol' USofA, with a thousand or more 'stick pins' highlighting the various earmarks. All these are tucked away just within the latest House Defense Bill.
Click on a stick pin, and you can get further details of that particular earmark. Including such information as to how much the receiver of the largess has invested in government lobbyists (according to, whose links are also included within the project's highlights)

Cool stuff,eh?

But an NBC spokesperson has confirmed that negotiations have fallen flat...(read the rest of the sory here)

The Bitch Is Back

Rosie O’Donnell in Talks to Join MSNBC

"America's Fastest Growing News Channel" (That's their slogan. For real! I'm not making this up) is about to ink a deal giving this soft-spoken flower of the left, and former funny girl, her own prime-time talk show.

Not sure if there is any mileage left on the "fat,angry lesbian" schtick, but maybe she'll find a few fans left from the "9/11 was an inside job" crowd. Moonbats have a habit of finding each other in the dark. And it doesn't get much darker than the low wattage of MSNBC.

Rock On, Rosie!

Feel Safer: Fly American Airlines.

Here we go again with another installment of pissed off Arabs.

Detained Arabic-speaking passengers sue American Airlines
The men, who sued in U.S. District Court in Detroit alleging racial discrimination, say airline employees grounded their Aug. 28 flight from San Diego to Chicago and detained them, believing they were security risks

I know how they feel. I am routinely detained and humiliated, along with thousands of other co-travelers, whenever I attempt air travel.
After taxiing from the gate, pilots returned the plane to the terminal. The six men were segregated and detained...

Good. I'd hate to think the pilots just ignored a crew of suspicious Arabs and continued on with takeoff.
Give these pilots medals, or bonus pay, or something. We need to encourage other pilots.
The suit was filed Thursday on behalf of David Al-Watan, Talal Cholagh, Ali Alzerej, Hassan Alzerej, Hussein Alsalih and Mohammad Al-Saedy.

Since it was guys with names like Hassan, Mohammad, Hussien, and Ali that made all this extra precaution that's treats everybody like a potential terrorist necessary, I'd say the suspicions and extra measures regarding such men, and even their friends with nice jewish names like David, are heavily justified.

I got a better idea. If we can lock up all the Japanese on the west coast as security risks, I don't think it unreasonable to forbid people with names like Hassan, Mohammad, Hussien, and Ali from ever coming near an airport, let alone actually boarding a plane.

"They treated me like a terrorist," Al-Watan, 30, said in the statement.
Well, yeah. That is the general idea, ain't it?

Maybe American Airlines can advertise a new slogan: "We Give Arabs A Hard Time."
I bet their bottom line would bloom as Arabs sought other more progressively-minded airlines to fly on, and the general public naturally, when given an informed choice, would choose the safer Arab-free skies of American Airlines.

Week To Week, It's Always The Same...

... in that I miss two out of three.

I really wish I was totally screwing the pooch with a weekly 0-3. At least I could solve my predictions problem my marking my picks, and then reversing them before turning in my card.

Thoughts On The Big Game

The Colts are better against the Patriots than I thought they would be. They'll meet again in the playoffs, and hopefully with a different result.

The Colts have more class as a team than the Patriots.

The Patriots exude too much arrogance.

Belichik is an ass.

Getting Back Into Form

This weeks football picks:
Only going with three picks again. I like to play, but lack the gambler's heart.

Washington over NY Jets by 3

Dallas over Philadelphia by 3

Now the biggie.
The biggest game of the season.
New England is given 6 points over Indianapolis.
I'm going with New England.
Belichik is gonna try to run up the score again, and this may be the Patriots's weakness if they take risky chances on big plays. Still, I doubt the Colts will be able to hold back the tide. The Patriots are just too good.
I'll be cheering for Indy, but my money is on New England.

I Just Had To Add Something

I stole this from Allen.


Who borrowed it from somebody who calls himself David.
Paul Tibbetts has died.

David has a splendid note on his mission, more eloquently stated than I could manage. So I’ll steal a portion of it:

Tibbets was responsible for much more than simply piloting the plane…

He was selected, after nearly a year of scrutiny from the brass, to effectively plan, organize, train, and execute the entire mission. He spent months selecting the right people, training them, preparing them, all from the secrecy of a “from scratch” military base in the barren desert of Utah, and had to enforce such strict security during this time that it nearly cost him his marriage. He had to coordinate the engineers, the pilots, the navs, the bombardiers, the mechanics, the janitors, the medics, and so on. He had to ensure that no one leaked a word about the project. He had to fight powerful brass and “higher ups” that didn’t know about the mission that he had been charged with, in order to secure hardware, personnel, and materials. He had to devise & test every possible scenario, dropping test bombs over & over to ensure that the “Real Thing” would detonate at precisely the right altitude. He had to select the precise date, location, and route. And, in the end, he had to lead the mission on that August day and give the order to drop the bomb. His preparation and leadership ensured that the mission was executed flawlessly.

To which I would simply add, “And he was thirty years old.”

Yeah, it looks like I'm back to posting again.

YES! I am going through some template changes.
Generally, I'm playing around trying to find something I want to live with for a while.
The old template was just so, well... boring and old and I was tired of hearing it groan in pain everytime I opened the page.

A big blog hug to Jade for her expertise in helping me get a photo properly sized to fit the header bar. Truth is, after much failure of my own, she stepped in and saved my sanity. If you get a chance,check out her photo-art page . She's not only a professionally talented shutter operator, she's a treasure as a blog friend, as well.

The background music is just there because it's just there, and because I found a way to do it, so I did it. And besides, Echo And The Bunnymen is cool.
It may vanish. It may change. It won't stay 'as is' for long.

Anyway, the template: as is obvious, still not finished playing yet. And not really ready to blog any posts just yet,either. As for now, I'm just enjoying visiting everybody else. I'll get back to it. Maybe in the next couple days. Still recovering from Brutal Tuesday Flu and got a case of incessant heartburn that would wake the dead.
