Free books.

Download, put them on CD's and listen as you want.

This may not be for everyone, but for me, I sometimes travel up to 2 hours to and from a job for a week or more. Often on lonely roads with bad radio reception. And, although rare, an occasional Sunday afternoon in the hammock, or the really rare fishing trip to one of my favorite places in the world. That's a 5 hour trip.

Time to go to work!

Kill the bill.

And nullify!

Dear Barack...

Thank you for your interest in my health. I heard your speech tonight after the historic passage of your 'concern of me and mine health care dildo'. I have finally realized that someone other than me has a serious investment in K-Y® Brand Jelly!

Did you know that K-Y® Brand Jelly was invented in 1919?

K-Y® Brand Jelly was the first personal lubricant created in 1919.  

Intimacy is the keyword. That's why I feel I can call you Barack. You don't mind, do you? OOPS! I should have asked you if you even read my blog. My bad. But you do, right? Because you care? Right?

And I know you do because you care about my health. Right? How else would you know what I need?

Oh P.S. Your speech after the vote was cool! Right now I can't remember every word you said. But I do know the ones that weren't included: Iraq, Afghanistan, IRAN, our brothers and sister, fathers and mothers, aunt, uncles, nephews, brother-in-laws, and soon to be grandsons!!! They be covering your ass (refer to the first paragraph) where you be staying!

Texas I have your six!

State sovereignty is a place I want to live in forever~

Thanks for taking the time to listen to me,Barry. Just shows all those bad people out there how wrong they are!

See ya on the flipside, Bro! :D

One for me, Zero for my procrastination.

Last week was my birthday. My bride bought me a food dehydrater. I had wanted one for some time. It's a beginner model Deni brand. $40 at Academy. What sold me on this one was a fellow that saw me looking at them. He said he bought 2 about 10 years ago, and even though he has a commercial stainless steel job now, he still uses the Denis.

I wanted to make banana chips and jerky. So off to the grocers for 3 pounds of bananas and a 6 pound roast. The unit was easy to use and the results were pretty remarkable. I gave samples of each to my lab rats (my 7 and 3 yr. old grandchildren that live next door). They kept coming back for more.

I will continue to fiddle with the jerky seasoning and will slice it a little thicker. The banana chips will remain the same. As long as the lab rats approve!

This week I am going to dry veggies. Corn, peas, carrots, and green beans. My goal is to vacuum pack these with rice, bullion, and seasonings in individual servings to pack in the BOB's.

Onward and upward!

Another good one from MArooned's blog...

Even after the recent Super Bowl victory of the New Orleans Saints, I have noticed a large number of people implying, with bad jokes, that Cajuns aren't smart. I would like to state for the record that I disagree with that assessment...

Anybody who would build a city 10 feet below sea level in a hurricane zone & fill it with democrats is a damned genius!

Clean up on aisle 3, we have spill over on our porous border

Gov. Perry Orders Activation of First Phase
AUSTIN - Following the recent escalation of murders in northern Mexico and the increasing threat of violence crossing over into neighboring border communities in Texas, Gov. Perry today ordered the activation of the first phase of the state's spillover violence contingency plan. The state's plan is law enforcement sensitive and will not be released to the public for operational security purposes.

"With the growing threat of violence in Mexico spilling over the border, we have taken important measures to increase the law enforcement presence along the Texas border and have placed additional resources on standby to combat any potential situation," Gov. Perry said. "It is imperative that the federal government immediately provide additional resources to prevent spillover violence, but with the safety of Texans on the line, we can't afford to wait."

At the governor's direction, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), in coordination with local and federal law enforcement along the Texas-Mexico border, has implemented critical elements of the state's spillover violence contingency plan. These steps include increased surveillance of border activity by state and local law enforcement, the Texas Border Security Operations Center, and the Joint Operational and Intelligence Centers to ensure the timely sharing of intelligence information; increased ground, air and maritime patrol presence; and increased intensity of day and night DPS helicopter patrol operations along the Rio Grande River, as well as National Guard helicopters to support aviation missions. Additional resources ready for rapid deployment have been placed on standby, including DPS SWAT Teams and Trooper Strike Teams, as well as Ranger Recon Teams prepared to reposition based on threat.

"Texas has a unique cultural and economic relationship with Mexico, and we are committed to a common interest of shutting down these criminal enterprises," Gov. Perry said. "We will continue to closely monitor this situation, and take any necessary action to ensure the safety of our citizens and to protect continued legitimate cross-border trade and travel."

Since January 2008, a reported 4,700 homicides have been committed across the border from El Paso in Ciudad Juarez, making it one of the most violent cities in the world.

A porous border places Texas and the nation at risk from international terrorists, organized crime cartels and transnational gangs. Until the federal government fulfills its responsibility of securing our border, Texas will continue filling in the gaps by putting more boots on the ground, providing increased law enforcement resources and leveraging technology along the border.

Gov. Perry has a standing request with the federal government for 1,000 Title 32 National Guardsmen to support civilian law enforcement efforts to enhance border security in Texas, as well as a more recent request for predator drones to be based in and operate over the Texas-Mexico border to provide essential information to law enforcement on the ground.

Hey Rick! How about ignoring the feds and using your authority to place the Texas Guard on the border. A lot less red tape and time, don't ya think? Well, do you think?

Ya knowwww...

I started to read the news and my favorite blogs while drinking my coffee and listening to the whiners and criers on the tv , this morning. Then I heard a mockingbird calling. I shut everything off.

It is quiet. I am going to slice some bananas, put them in the dehydrator, then I am going to go outside for the rest of the day.

Sometimes you have to let it all go away!

Heaviest Element Yet Known to Science Discovered

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California has now identified with certainty the heaviest element known to science.

The new element, Pelosium (PL), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Pelosium is inert, and has no charge and no magnetism. Nevertheless, it can be detected because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.

A tiny amount of Pelosium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete. Pelosium has a normal half-life of 2 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a biennial reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. Pelosium mass will increase over time, since each reorganization will promote many morons to become isodopes. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalyzed with money, Pelosium becomes Senatorium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Pelosium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

1984 revisited

"Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me."

Here comes da judge...

Judge Rescinds Death Penalty Ruling
Judge Kevin Fine Said Last Week Death Penalty Was Unconstitutional

POSTED: Tuesday, March 9, 2010
UPDATED: 1:47 pm CST March 9, 2010
HOUSTON -- A Texas judge who came under criticism for his ruling declaring the death penalty unconstitutional took back his controversial decision on Tuesday.

However, Judge Kevin Fine said he still wants more information on whether the state's death penalty statute is unconstitutional because it allows for the possible execution of an innocent person. The Democrat who is heavily tattooed and says he's a recovering alcoholic and former cocaine user, is a state district judge in the county that sends more inmates to death row than any other in the nation.

During a court hearing Tuesday, Fine rescinded his ruling, which he made last week in granting a pretrial motion in a capital murder case. But he asked Harris County prosecutors and defense attorneys to submit motions on the issue.

A hearing in the case is set for April 27, and Tuesday's decision will delay the trial, which had been set to begin with jury selection at the end of this month.

Fine said there was no precedent to guide him in resolving the issues raised by defense attorneys in a case involving a man accused of fatally shooting a Houston woman and wounding her sister during a robbery in front of their home in June 2008.

Attorneys for John Edward Green Jr. argued Texas' death penalty statute is unconstitutional because it violates their client's right to due process of law under the 5th Amendment because hundreds of innocent people around the country have been convicted and sent to death row and later exonerated.

Fine said in his ruling Thursday that it is safe to assume innocent people have been executed. A string of high-profile Texans, including Gov. Rick Perry, strongly criticized Fine's ruling last week. Fine declined to comment Tuesday on why he took back his ruling.

"We are reviewing the court's latest ruling and are briefing the issues," said Donna Hawkins, a spokeswoman for the Harris County District Attorney's Office.

An attorney for Green did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.

A court hearing in the case had been set for Wednesday, when Fine was expected to rule on prosecutors' motions to have him reconsider his decision or to still proceed with the trial as a death penalty case. Tuesday's hearing was called at the last minute.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott last week called Fine's ruling one of "unabashed judicial activism." Perry also slammed it, saying he supports the death penalty as do the majority of people in Texas.

Last year, the state executed 24 people, including six cases from Harris County. Three people have been executed so far this year, none from Harris County.

Not that I'm judging, but this is so wrong on so many levels.

They are coming and the sheeple will cooperate.

Put a no tresspass sign at the end of your drive, if they ignore it, film it. In any case answer only the first 2 questions. If you receive the mailer, buy a case of broad tipped permanent markers and black out anything below line 2.

The census

You will answer the questions and you will like it!

And the Oscar goes to...

Barack Obama!

I am appalled that these things can be said of a standing president. They are true and I need to vomit!

Say it ain't so...

Something I need to do.

I know a man that films confrontations between U.S. citizens and illegal aliens. He has handed me several hours of such. I am in the process of reviewing the raw footage. I am going to post what I feel is the most relevant as far as illegal alien attitudes toward US citizens. I can assure you that it is not suitable viewing for children, women, or metrosexuals.

I want to puke. I want to be calm. I want to be aware. I want everyone to be very aware.

Stay tuned.

An effort for change.

Got out to vote this morning. I was number 3 in line when the precinct opened their doors at 7. I really researched the candidates this year. Now I'm watching the returns. Looks like the sheeple win again. Nah, they actually lost again.

The only thing our President and I agree on is, "We need change."
