To hear people talk about it, our current pres won by a large majority rather than the narrow gap that it was. As our lemming pres and congress (yes, for those who are offended, I do mean the democrat socialist and the republican industrialist, including the independent office holders as well as the extremely biased media of both parties and all the other presidents who trampled on my rights in the name of "national security") run towards a "cliff" I hope that they realise they have left the truth behind and chase fancies much like the sirens of The Oddessy. Yet this bunch of lemmings also drag us behind them with no true concern for this country's future beyond today. Tomorrow is a concern for others whom are less important than they and you can be assured that if you rely on the government for anything, it can easily cost you everything. This has proven true over the expanse of history and will be true to the death of this country, which I will sadly live to see (God willing) and it is something I expect to see by the year 2043. Not the last coming of Christ (Sooner is my hope.) but the inevitable rise of anarchy in a regulated socialist society. People will eventually rebel and though it may take over 83.6 years there is a bare possibility that a representative government may re-establish itself and exist for more than a couple of centuries.

Or maybe next time we do what the bumper sticker I recently saw say: Re-Elect NO ONE. What a day of joy that would be, and you know as well as I that it would be an act of God if we listened to that wisdom.

But mankind lacks the wisdom to listen and it is a sad thing to me.

Look at the sunset, wherever you are. Lift your Dr. Pepper high and say "THANK YOU LORD for thinkin' 'bout me"

I hope I can think about God more each day. America is lost.

This is bizarre. I am having trouble finding a thought to think and the computer decides I don't need to write it anyway.

I recently rediscovered some of my earlier writings, like, from the 70's, man.  Pre-disco stuff but not some of the stranger stuff, but they may turn up sometime or other. Still trying to decide whether or not to post or publish.

Maybe after Christmas.

Happy Hanukkah

hope I spelled that correctly.....

You can't fool me, I know it is not mucus. If it a politician it is slime. I saw a bumper sticker today. Said re-elect NO ONE. Kinda like that idea. Anarchy is coming so why not practice replacing leadership until we get back to the original idea, citizen statesmen. Average people actually would perform the best. Require elected officials to participate in Social Security, and if they are over 65 then Medicare would be their "health plan". I wonder how many hours it would take them to fix those programs under those conditions.  Also no other retirement than Socialist Security, fast fixes would come our way. And no more than 2 consecutive terms for any of them.

I smell Peace On Earth.......

Sittin' wishin' watchin' for the moment not something else

I hate catching bugs. Not the 6 or 8 legged (or even the 100 legged) kind. The other kind. Like I can't trust myself to drive due to the urgent need to visit the lou. These things happen. There is no good time for it. I find it depressing, but such is life. At least it is getting past every half hour now. I hope.

I wonder if this is because of the upcoming election. Might just my opinion of the options coming out.

Things happen and I don't understand.

          I often see things and I don't understand. The how is usually easy, as I am a fan of physics. But the why of things escapes me faster than greased lighting. Coming back from Houston we cut through Deweyville,Tx and DeQuincy, La and this time we were delayed because a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle and I am presuming killed. The ambulance had the body placed in it and didn't immediately leave which leads me to believe the impact was fatal. Not something you want to run into while you have a pair of sick grandkids in the car.

          I am not one who is mesmerized by fatal incidents like this, but I do not display what I feel all the time. I have fallen while crossing a street and felt like my legs and arms had turned to lead when I tried to get up. A feeling of impending doom perhaps describes it. I have seen a helicopter crash on takeoff with no injuries to the crew but a "Yellow Shirt" died and an ASW jet land in the barricade of an aircraft carrier. (No mean feat if you know about that particular aircraft.) But in my life to date I have had no encounters with sudden death caused by uncontrollable factors. Every encounter with the "Grim Reaper" that I have a direct connection to (with the exception of age / physical condition, including "birth defects") have been preventable with certain precautions. Most of these occasions were created by man or were by mankind trying to defy set physical laws.

NCIS has given us  "Gibb's Rules" so I figured to list a few of my own:

1. God is right.
2. Grandpa is probably right.
3. Gravity will always win. The best you can do is minimize the damage.
4. If someone say "Hey, watch this!" get out the 1st aid kit or your phone and start dialing "911".
5. Arguing with someone is a waste of time. You cannot unset concrete without completely disassembling it.
 6. In regards to number 4; if you have time. get your video recorder going. America's Funniest is always needing new repeats of the same old mistakes.
7. Why the chicken crossed the road is unimportant. What is important is "spicy or mild".
8. Why am I here? is unimportant when compared to What am I doing while I am here?
9. What are you doing here??

        A guy in Jacksonville Fl once made a tape "Dancing Across War-torn Europe" (I think) and in it he had a song about a list of things you should not  ( my emphasis ) do including "never suck tobasco sauce into you lungs" and "never stick a knitting needle in your eye" and one of my personal favorites "Don't share your toothbrush with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir."  Bye the way, the song was also on the "Theo" tape

Not being a "list" person by nature or nurture my skill level with them is sub-par (inversely proportional I suppose. Isn't sub-par the objective of golf??). So take my advice here with a grain of salt, (sea salt, but limit your intake to the DRD) and work on a list of your own.
The sky is smiling.

Bonnie is watching. Does it mean anything to you? I doubt it but maybe it should. When she is watching me it is for food most of the time, but sometimes not. Distinguishing the not is the key to a happy life. If looking into those eyes requires an explanation, then you are in for a long hard life. Now she is licking her nose and giving me the eye again. Goodnight all.

The Louisiana Bayou Rat index page.

The Above mentioned link is to my homepage. I will occasionally update it with pertinence and other stuff. 

The time has come for politics to raise its ugly head again.  Presidential (and other) elections are about to get down and dirtier than my feet after a day of choppin' cotton. (Yes, I did when I was young.)
    Who to vote for? What a question. I have long since had my fill of socialist rule, along with Big Brother. Reagan was the last one I could support, but he was an expensive date. I find it sad to say that the best we have had in my lifetime were a general, a California politician and a "not a crook". It is my feeling that the country is now lost and headed for a third or even fourth world status, degenerating further than man has the capacity to imagine into a fractured and fragmented society. 
    Who is to blame? Get real, there is no blame, just mankind following its "natural" pathology. The only way to fix this descent is by actually doing as the founders envisioned and applying it across the board. I seriously doubt any of our current so called "leaders" have a clue what I mean and my explanation would only be received as "blah, blah, blah"by most of them and completely ignored by the rest.
     Well fellow Americans, if you must blame someone, blame yourself. We the people foolishly believed politicians and for the life of me I can't figure out why. This is the consistent end of our behavior. No governmental decree really "freed" anyone. The emancipation proclamation allegedly put an end to legal slavery but the slavery of before it remains with us today. People are still bought and sold all over the world under the various cloaks of debt and need. People who are on the federal/state "welfare" system are in reality now slaves of the government regardless of race, creed, or colour. 
     For many years now it is obvious to me that the allegedly democratic party has been on a socialist path while the allegedly representative party is doggedly on an industrialist megapower path. Both of these political parties have no interest in propagating freedom in the world because there is no money in it unless they can create another world wide war. By the time islamist garner enough power and unity start one, these two parties will have diluted and and diminished our capacity for self preservation sufficiently to make us an easy mark and the world will fall into chaos of the dark ages once again. 
     There are no layman terms by which I could explain the math to you but 2043 still has the highest probability for the unification and self destruction of both islam and the former USA. Anarchy is coming in about 30 years or so. Microsoft will contribute to its own demise in the computing world, Linux will rise and fall, google will fail spectacularly and the "greed" of the west will fracture all of the unified power structures from coast to coast. 
     As the man said: "Hold on to your hats boys. We're goin' for a RIDE!!!"

April's wedding

Drove Moma over to Carrollton for April's wedding. Beautiful  (naturally) bride, handsome husband, very nice ceremony. We wish you Joy in the Lord and each other.

Though the sun goeth down, the beauty of God  goeth forth to be seen of mortal man, if he will but look and see.

I think it is time to begin the revolution. Government is not getting out of hand, it is out of hand.  What say we all get together next election and not vote for anyone who supported this latest government intrusion into our wallet. I'm talking to you who are in the middle class with me. 

You know the rich don't really care about us and the intentionally poor want more money. And the politicians try to curry favor with both ends at the expense of the middle. Deception and fear are the greatest tools of socialism, communism, and many other isms. It is the tool of politicians in this state and country and it is time for the few Americans remaining to step up and  say "NO" to new useless laws and a "high" (I think they must have been) court that has chosen to disregard what my forefathers wrote.

It's not an earthquake. Thomas Payne and many others are spinning now, shaking the ground from Canada to Mexico. 

I still believe 2043 is the last year of this country, but the math is getting pushed.

As someone around Uncle Ben's time said, "Keep yur powder dry boys!"

Well, the last post didn't publish correctly. Not a big shock as you-know-who is running the site now. Apparently they are not fond of criticism. Not that I am either, but I don't pick up something that works and then redesign it so people have issues adapting. Nevertheless I am going to struggle on as my laptop does weird things to itself. Maybe things will work out later. I am moving more and more to Ubuntu as I slowly figure out how to do more complicated things on it.

And those baked beans RM is making smell goooood!

Yes, sometime my density exceeds that of Saturn's atmosphere. I just realized that google has taken over this. That information is completely depressing to me. It is no wonder that my stomach is twisting in knots and the depression that began with microsoft in the 80's is growing deeper.

No, google, I do not wish to share any personal  information with total strangers, and yes, you qualify as a total stranger. Please stay that way. Just like I wish obama would have remained a totally unkown complete stranger so I wish for you as both corporate and personal entity.

This world is not my home.
I will be happy when I can go home.

Till then: Vote

And should an honest, forthright person who is willing to risk reputation and sanity decide to run, VOTE HONEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry eBlogger, the new setup is not a fun one for me.

oh well. guess i will tune up my nook to steeleye span and muddle on my merry waye.

The political storms loom large on the horizon. I still remember the battle cry "Vote for the crook, it's important!" and this round is very similar. Obama, no, plain and simple. Romney, are you sure we can't write in Mickey?? The country, like the post office is broke and broken. Fixable? Maybe. With our current crop of "leaders", not a chance.  We need old blood in Washington, DC. 300 year old blood. We need Uncle Ben now more than ever. We need real intelligence, not the book bound garbage we now have. How about we just restart with the original document and the Bill Of Rights and say these apply to everyone, period.

I am a simple man with simple needs for my simple mind. No, I am not a simpleton. I don't even weigh one eighth of a ton. These people have moved from the real of common sense and simple. For what reason, I have no clue. As I said, I am a simple man. I just happen to grasp some of the basics of atomic physics, quantum mechanics, I have a few issues with string theory, and the big bang theory has as many holes as the show.

Simple, really.

Not a particle.

Mayhaws r good!!!!!!

Cooked the mayhaws and freezing the juice, and a bit on the side for syrup. Talk about attention getting, jaw torquing sweetness that makes cotton candy taste like a lemon.  Yeah, baby. Finger gnawing good. I got mine. I made some for Janet & Richard (thanks for the mayhaws). Just a few drops left over. Maybe I should save them for the election.

Truckin' in style along the avenue.....

Calico Callia

and other words ununderstood. That is in fact the true way of life. Sometimes we get it and other times wind might blow but standin' here I just don't know.

How do you do?

Is it indeed a little one or two?

The very first word is how do you do? The last whole word is your Momma's callin' you......

Can you understand how strange it is to go from "Cosmic Charlie" to "I Am A Rock" without missing a beat or derailing the train of thought? I can, and do. Quietly often throughout each day. I listen to ESPN radio sometimes then switch over to Switchfoot tunes. Sometimes I listen to Rush beat a dead horse (usually as much as ten to fifteen seconds) then switch to Rush and listen to a man that knows how to beat a drum. I can watch Leslie Nielson and listen to Leslie West, though I must admit I'd rather go West.

Who knows? Some day I might just go on a Nantucket Sleighride one winter.

I am a Deadhead (of a sort) that looks for the teachings of Christ in the unlikely of places. Just a hint, if you look for Satan anywhere, you will find him also. We are so willing to be deceived and yet so leery of truth.

Seek Truth in all things, but be sure you know how to recognize it.
It often can be a hard pill to swallow.

Bring lotsa Dr.P

You may have notice

You may have notice that my blogs are more sporadic than in times past. Such is life. My health has been also. As has my former job. I am now "officially", though possibly not legally excessed and my job as an electronics tech at the USPS is gone. Of course, I have had no real job there for several months now as Alexandria is no longer an active processing site. Still the day goes by and I serve as an acting maintenance manager/maintenance clerk/ whatever it takes to get the job done. At least, for now, though this may change soon. I just don't know and as I have no experience job hunting I am clueless about what to do next. (I have had only 2 jobs my whole adult life, USN 22 yrs and USPS 18 yrs this July). I am just really glad I am not a politician.
 Bon-Doggie is watching you......

Sittin' 'n' waitin'

Yep, sitting here waiting for the storm to blow through. Should be in about 30 minutes or so. 30mph front pushing through but will probably last less than an hour. Wish Scotty would show up and beam me to a beach somewhere. Guess I'd better call Louis and get my John Fred request in.....

It's wet out there

Who knew. It is 40%ing out there like crazy, going from heavy to light and and back again. Typical Louisiana snowfall for January. (means the sky forgot to freeze the snow on the way down.) My outside thermometer is reporting 73 degrees F at the moment. It might even be right this time. Yesterday it was 143F. Who could've predicted, oh wait, they tried.
