Some Of Us Can Count Ourselves Lucky

Yesterday at this time the first thing I saw was that a friend had suddenly died at a young age. It turns out from an article this morning it was a blood clot. Not super close but still someone I considered a friend.

A bit later I called another friend who was very tight with this person. In recent weeks we had several conversations about his elderly parents and the issue they and his family were facing something I just went through. He told me his father had fallen and hit his head. He was on a plane in the afternoon headed back to probably take his father off of life support. Sunday was a very bad day for him.

Today and particularly tomorrow I will be making a major change in my life by moving from here. I am looking forward to it and am excited. I feel so fortunate that I have control over what I do that I still have my health and that I am able to perform most any task without difficulty.

I also understand all that can come to a screeching halt in the next moment so I relish at this time the ability to do so knowing full well there is a time coming for me too. I am fortunate that this is the case and my thoughts continue to stray to all those less fortunate than me that face any number of difficulties and just wish to say I am thinking of you.

May all of you have an excellent day today!

We'll Never Get Paid Back

UPDATE So it didn't pass today and maybe it never will. I was wrong but what can be said is that there's a shit load of money missing and somebody took it. This country no matter how this turns out is in for a serious learning curve for many years to come.

When the save the banks who stole from all of us bill passes and it will the they will imply some benefits will come back to us. Is that with interest? Not on your life. The song congress is singing today.



Two Examples Of The Undecided

This guy probably wasn't going to vote anyway. He was way too busy planning this caper.

FOUNTAIN, Colo. - A Colorado teenager hired men to kill his mother so he could use her money to get breast implants for his girlfriend, police said.

Then there's this father who will not be a role model anymore at least for 36 years.

A father who provided alcohol to his teenage son and egged him on to drive recklessly before crashing and injuring his 3-year-old son, was sentenced Friday to 36 years in prison.

There is something seriously wrong with our society as you can find examples of these types of things from all over. Do believe these two would probably fit into the category of the undecided for the simple reason they are fucking stupid!

Sorry To Hear This


The Hombre is gone and that's just what he was in life too.

This movie is my favorite. Remember at the end when he walked down the stairs how he told the others what to expect from those who wanted to kill him. It's a bit like that now for us. If one thing doesn't get us and our country something else will.

I will miss this man. Paul Newman was one of the good guys who made things go round the right way.

Meet Dewey The Library Cat

Although Dewey has passed on living in the library for 19 years he was enough of a presence that he gained nation wide attention and was the topic of a book that helped this town in the cornfield get back on it's feet during hard times in the 80's.

As a young gear head with a fast car this town was known for street racing with a wide main street and stop lights. Light'em up on the green and wait for the smoke to settle. Open headers included. Times were oh so different then . Try that now and it'd be slammer time.

Confirmed-Palin Is A Post Turtle

I saw this in a thread about Failin in the local fish wrapper. Had never heard of this expression before and laughed my ass off.

An old Texas rancher was discussing Sarah Palin's bid to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. He said, “Well, ya know, Palin is a post turtle.”
Not being familiar with the term, I asked, “What's a post turtle?”

The old rancher said, “When you're driving down a country road and you spy a fencepost with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle.”

He saw that I looked puzzled, so he continued, “You know she didn't get up there by herself; she doesn't belong up there; she doesn't know what to do while she is up there and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put her up there to begin with.

They Had One And Now They Don't

We shouldn't be doing this anyway and below is an opinion of why this will not work. Whore Paulson down on his knees begging. I bet he gets on his knees a bunch to satisfy these bastards. There will be something and no matter what it is we will be the ones getting screwed as always. "This is hard to swallow" stated Paulson.

Weiss Research Press Release on Federal Bailout

by Martin D. Weiss, Ph.D.

We believe Congress may be on the verge of making what could become one of the greatest policy mistakes of modern times, passing bailout legislation that could aggravate, rather than alleviate, the nation's massive debt crisis.

With this in mind, we are submitting our white paper on this urgent topic to members of Congress and banking regulators, and I wanted to make sure you have a copy right now. Earlier this week, I gave you a preview in the form of a partial first draft. Below is our press release with a link to the final report.

Best wishes,

Martin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
September 24, 2008

Proposed $700 Billion Bailout
Is Too Little, Too Late to End Debt Crisis;
Too Much, Too Soon for U.S. Bond Markets

Weiss Research Submits Policy
Recommendations to Congress Today

JUPITER, FL, September 24, 2008 — The proposal before Congress for a $700 billion financial industry bailout will not only fail to end the massive U.S. debt crisis but could actually aggravate the crisis by driving up interest rates, according to a white paper submitted to Congress and banking regulators today by Weiss Research, Inc. Therefore, Weiss recommends limiting and reducing the bailout as much as possible, while bolstering existing safety nets for consumers.

Based on recently released FDIC and Federal Reserve data, Weiss Research finds that:

1. 1,479 U.S. banks and 158 U.S. thrifts are at risk of failure, with total assets of $3.2 trillion, or 41 times the assets of banks on the FDIC's list of troubled institutions.

2. Among those with $5 billion or more in assets, 61 banks and 25 thrifts are heavily exposed to nonperforming mortgages.

3. The bailouts announced and proposed to date, although expected to cost over $1 trillion, are too small to rescue most institutions at risk, let alone address multiple problems with U.S. interest-bearing debts outstanding of $51 trillion and derivatives held by U.S. banks of $180 trillion.

Martin D. Weiss, president of Weiss Research, comments: "There should be no illusion that the $700 billion estimate proposed by the Administration will be enough to end the crisis. Nor should there be any false hopes that the market for U.S. government securities can absorb the additional burden of a $700 billion bailout without putting major upward pressure on U.S. interest rates, aggravating the very debt crisis that the government is seeking to alleviate." Among its policy recommendations, Weiss urges Congress to:

1. Severely limit the government's authority to buy bad private-sector debts by requiring it to pay strictly fair market value, including a substantial discount that reflects their poor liquidity.

2. Disclose to the public that there are significant risks in the financial system that the government is not able to address.

3. Focus more resources on strengthening existing safety nets, including FDIC insurance of bank deposits, SIPC coverage of brokerage accounts and state guarantee associations that cover insurance policies.

"Rather than focusing on the protection of imprudent institutions and speculators," concludes Weiss, "Congress should do more to protect prudent individuals and savers."

Regardless of what Congress decides, Weiss recommends that individuals continue to invest and save prudently, seeking the safest havens for their money, such as safe banks and U.S. Treasury bills or equivalent.

Another Low Life Religious Fucktard And Sex Deviate Taken Away in Cuffs

"BIG" Tony arrested arrested in Flagstaff.

Add another to the list. Sick fucks they are these people on the far right.
Put him on trial but my money is that he's guilty as a sonofabitch.

These bastards have been doing this for years just like priests. An example is the Franklin Coverup from the late 60's in Omaha. They were taking kids from Boys Town for their fun. People were killed over this and many there have not forgotten.

Time For A Change-It's Too Intense Out There

This is the first video using pictures I made sometime ago. Third time on Windows movie maker and for a pecker head outta the cornfield and no plan I came out with this. Set to the Car's "Let the Good Times Roll".

Perfect Example Of How Stupid Voters Are

A recent AP-Yahoo! News poll found that 18 percent of likely voters are up for grabs — undecided or willing to change their minds

Whether these numbers are correct or not is not the issue. What's important is that this creates the delusion that the choice to be made is a hard one so when it's stolen there is another avenue to possible take to explain it was the stupid fucktard undecided that made the difference in BO not winning.

Nothing else needs to be said except we are in a world of shit and look the fuck out in the coming weeks.

On The Same Page As Our Enemies

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed the U.N. General Assembly Tuesday declaring that "the American empire" is nearing collapse and should end its military involvement in other countries.

This ain't right. I agree with this and it's from a country we despise and are planning to attack or more correctly want to ever so badly at least some of us anyway. How fucked up is it when you think it's your own country who are the bad guys?

Chalk One Up For The Little Guy

Outside the University of Colorado Police Department on Monday, cheers erupted from a crowd of marijuana advocates — some of whom were dressed as giant pot leaves — when a student was given back medical marijuana that police took from him in May.

Maybe when peoples lives are turned upside down they will wish the tens of billions used on the decades old drug war would have gone for a more constructive effort. Developing alternative energy sources would have been a good one. Not in this country.

It surprises me how many comments there are.


Take A Moment To Vote Against Palin

There is a poll out on whether Failin is qualified to be VP. At this time the crazys say she is. It only takes a second to vote. Consider spreading this around. Thanks!

Organic Farming And The New Farm Bill

The bill offers farmers as much as $20,000 a year to cover the cost of converting their farms to organic agriculture. For organic farmers, controlling weeds often means keeping rows cultivated — which can be hard to do when the fields are too soggy for a tractor — or torching the weeds with a propane burner. At one point this summer, Albers hired 30 people to cut weeds. "If you're just in it for the money, you're probably not going to survive," he said. "It's a lot more work."

There are actually a number of incentives in this bill to promote organic farming or at least get those interested started. Provisions that offset the costs of doing so.

The key though is in the last sentence where this it states "it's a lot more work". That alone is enough to shy farmers away from this. You have to actually perform manual weed removal at times and it's been years since that's been done. I've done it a bunch and it is very demanding. Nobody wants to do this anymore not when you can get the job done with chemicals.

Two US Soldiers Killed By Another in Iraq

This post showed the last fourteen US troops killed in Iraq were classified as non-hostile.
Two of those shot by another soldier are

Sgt. Wesley R. Durbin, 26, of Dallas

and
Staff Sgt. Darris J. Dawson, 24, of Pensacola, Fla

Given seven of the fourteen died when their helicopter crashed but these two did not. It must be a real sonofabitch over there and I cannot even imagine what life for these soldiers is like. We all know we must leave Iraq now and the reality is that it is not going to happen anytime soon for damn sure. We are in a world of shit and we haven't seen nothing yet. LTFO!

Another Reason This Bailout Will Be A Total Disaster

The plan , which the Bush administration sent to Congress late Friday.

If you read this article there is enough in it to see the end result will be totally fucked up as after all who's in charge.

They knew this was coming of course and the draft was sent to Congress on Friday. The problem is that there is also a bill involved a long one for sure and this was written long before now you can bet on it. Crafted by all those who will benefit from this debacle. Business as usual from the Bush whores and country rapists.

Within this article there are several references to how this needs to be done now and very quickly along with feigned outrage from the likes of Reid and Pelosi. Patriot Act ring a bell??
The last and in the end what will turn out to be a trillion plus give away to those that stole it another gift from these low life sonsofbitches that control our country.

Cenk Uygur writes this emotion filled piece on this issue hoping and explaining how BO can use this to his advantage. Will he? I'm not counting on it but I believe this could be a tipping point that could make the difference between winning and losing in November.

People Are Making Changes

I am moving at the end of the month. A good bud is leaving for the last time this morning taking 16% less than the asking price for his house but it did sell. Another here hopes to close next week for 20% less. A life long friend is moving also at the end of the month into a friends house along with another. All three have recently lost their jobs.

I think this is happening all over the country. Changes brought on by corruption and greed forced on many who don't necessarily deserve it. Mine is part of that but intend for it to have more positives in the end. I am one of the luckier ones.

Got shit to do but headed down to the river at least for awhile as those trips to my favorite place of all will be limited in the future. Will find other places that will work instead plus it's time to explore other fisheries.

There Are More Than Enough Racist Bastards On The Left To Lose This Election

Here are a few tidbits for thought on what's coming.

Yahoo News poll that found one-third of white Democrats harbor negative views toward blacks — many calling them "lazy," "violent," responsible for their own troubles.

Just seven in 10 people who call themselves Democrats support Obama

More than a quarter of all Democrats expressed doubt that Obama can bring about the change they want, and they are likely to vote against him because of that.

Just 59 percent of her white Democratic supporters said they wanted Obama to be president. Nearly 17 percent of Clinton's white backers plan to vote for McCain.


Here is another.
The pollsters set out to determine why Obama is locked in a close race with McCain even as the political landscape seems to favor Democrats.
I can tell you why because that's the image cast by the media that there is something inherently wrong with this man when the truth of the matter is the other two are borderline bat shit crazy but that's fine by you whores because you love war and incompetence that's why assholes.

A racist nation we are when you have the numbers from this poll showing so many so called Democrats who will not vote for a black man. They are not Dems but racists. We are so goddamn dumb as a nation we would rather have more death and destruction by possibly even worse candidates than the Bush's rather than the chance of the return to a bit of sanity because of the color of this mans skin. Sick shit I tell you.

I don't give a shit if our candidate is the Queen of Egypt just as long as these killers are out of office that is if there is an election.
I'm not happy with the way things went but I sure as hell will not vote for the other side or not vote at all because of the skin color of our candidate. Dumb monkeys!

Somebody Send Me A Ballot From Vermont

Dennett, 61, the Progressive Party's candidate for Vermont Attorney General, said Thursday she will prosecute President Bush for murder if she's elected Nov. 4.

That's a vote I'd like to make! Maybe in those wildest dreams these people will be held accountable for what they've done to our country.

Foley Won't Face Charges

It's been two years since this scum whore resigned and it looks like he's going to skate like so many others.

Perverted GOPers you sick bastards!

This Is Just Pure Horse Shit These Kids Are Giving Their Lives Like This Meaning NON-HOSTILE

Update-These figures have changed below. Seven were killed in a helicopter crash not five so the total is 14 . The last 14 US troops killed in Iraq were by non-hostile means.

The post I was going to make was going to be about the last seven combat deaths in Iraq being non-hostile in nature. I go to get this and here in less than twenty minutes five more had been put up all non-hostile deaths making for now the last 12 American troops killed in Iraq have died by non-hostile means and all it will get anywhere is a mention.

I'm at a loss for words because I'm so goddamned outraged! We must leave Iraq if there is to be any chance of some stability in our country and that includes getting the crazy bastards out of the power. I hope so hard but only when I see it will I believe it.

Sometimes Bigger Is Better

Gregory Paul Johnson, a founder of the Small House Society in Iowa City, Iowa, said that the notion of very small houses becoming popular was "an absurdity" five years ago

I've lived in some small places. One was a 400 sq. ft. chicken coop but it had it all. The title of this post refers to something that just happened to me that I'll explain in a day or so.

As conditions deteriorate people (not the filthy rich ones) will not continue to build larger homes as each is a monument to the absurdity of our lifestyle which far too many think they're entitled to. That's changing very quickly and will never be the same.

Anyway enjoyed this article and get a kick out of small houses. Here is the link to the Small House Society.

Executive Order #51

Make a point to go over to An Average American Patriot and read the post about the powers Bushmeister gave himself without even a whimper from the Dims and the prediction that comes with the post.

OTC has not gone there too much except to say a bunch look the fuck out(LTFO). It might be that in conversations when I said so many times this upcoming election there were three possible scenarios. 1. It is going to be stolen using a variety of ways. 2. Suspend the election because of whatever the monkey decides. 3. Along with suspension martial law will be declared because of whatever once again as the killer in charge has given himself that power.

When these things are brought up people look at me with bewilderment in their eyes because as I see it they have been propagandized/brainwashed and most still believe we have a democracy. I think our democracy is pretty much gone and we don't even know it. The next few weeks will determine that and more as I think the shit is really gonna hit the fan before then.

When a few take our country to war on lies and get away with it along with the help of the media rest assured these people will stop at nothing to keep power. They fear what ever little chance there is that in the future they may be held accountable for their actions and end up swinging like our old bud Saddam did. They deserve no less. LTFO!

Check out this post just pointed out to me by the AAPatriot and explain to yourself there's not something brewing. I'll believe this before I will anything coming from the mouths of these fascist bastards in charge.

People Listen To This Shit

We've seen this below before but people believe this when it's said over and over again by what constitutes media/news in Amerika and it works. The reality is that this is propaganda/brainwashing no more no less. There's a screw'in coming no doubt about it.

The following was taken from an e-mail I believe.

If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're "exotic, different."

Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, a quintessential American story.

If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick.

Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.

If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.

If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.

If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.

If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.

If you teach teach children about sexual predators, you are irresponsible and eroding the fiber of society.

If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.

If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America 's.

If you're husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that hates America and advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

Petraeus Is Outta There

Replaced by General Ray Odierno. Petraeus the wonder boy credited with all the success in Irak. So when things turn to shit this guy will get blamed. From what I read the situation is so very fragile anything could happen at any time. Money can get you many things and in this case less killing at least for a period of time anyway.

Seven of ours killed so far this month and it's like they are invisible to this country and to these candidates as the entire debacle is. We cannot leave soon enough and it sure as hell will not be anytime soon or if ever you can bet on it no matter what is being said. I'll believe it when it happens and is finished. Until then we've got squat.

It's No Different Than 70 Years Ago

WTF Is It Now gives a great example of this. It's propaganda pure and simple no more no less and it's not talked about enough. The Nazis were very successful with this technique as we all know.

It's been written here before that I believe key players in government have been threatened by the likes of those in this administration. I still believe that. Recently I equated the situation locally was similar to what had happened nationally one of the common denominators being the media which in this case is a newspaper. But what I want to get at is something else.

Maybe some of you have discussions with some of those on the other side but I do not partly because those situations do not occur and I guess I limit the chances of that happening. A conversation I had today with a friend is an example. Very simply friends who are visiting him are wing nuts. Poor guy and no matter what is said those on the other side never give an inch and are in lockstep with the talking points they hear on squawk boxes. On the other side I would not give an inch from my position from what I know and I know of no talking points at all that I could respond with.

So when situations like that arise I probably do what you do and present them with facts that are true. No Saddam was not responsible for 911 is an important fact known for a long long time even though for those that listen to media here the truth came a couple years late but it did come out. But yet something like 50% may be even more believe this shit to this day. In the end all your talking does not make a dent.

Locally it's identical. People believing for a fact things that have been disapproved a long time ago but continually tossed around as to the truth. And even when shown or told the real facts of these matters it makes no difference they still believe the falsehoods.

Brainwashing is another term and that is exactly what has been done and continues to be done to our society. When there is a concerted effort by government and the media to change the truth into something other on all sorts of issues and there are at least 50% of citizens who believe the lie the powers to be have been successful.

We are in a world of shit and this upcoming election is pivotal. It is a key moment in the history of this country and I fear the groundwork being laid puts the success rate of winning this election in severe jeopardy. Look the fuck out.

Then there's the religious brainwashing with the church Sarah Failin attends. This is just sick!

Senator Saladbar Talks Drilling

House Democrats will push next week for an energy plan that includes limited expansion of offshore drilling, requires power plants to use alternative fuels and demands oil companies pay additional royalties.

Don't shit yourself. Believe it when you see it because the San Louie sheep rancher went on to say
The legislation from the so-called "Gang of 20" hasn't been finished and may not get enough support to pass the Senate because of the tax issue.

This piece of work continued with this gem.

Salazar in his address primarily pinned the blame for what he sees as the lack of progress toward renewable energy on two Republicans."President Bush and Sen. McCain have failed to show any leadership on this issue for the last eight years," Salazar said.

Take a look in the mirror and see one of the primary culprits who helped enable these Bush whores to do what ever they wanted. Saying this shit to rationalize to yourself that you are blameless makes me want to upchuck. ASSHOLE!

Slightly Motivated

Even though there are over 30 days to prepare for this upcoming move have spent the last few hours shit canning some of the stuff that needed to be tossed years ago.

A cousin of mine with whom I am very tight is facing a move also by the end of the month. He is doing so for monetary reasons plus lack of a job with bleak prospects of getting one. Both of us have been affected by this criminal administration. There are millions and millions in this country who face worse things than we do. You bastards!

Enough work the weather cleared off so I'm going out to see if I can catch a fish.

Tagged

It's late to answer five questions from Liberality who tagged me. I'll think about these questions during the day tomorrow and get right on it after I get home. Answers may be boring but it will be fun too. Where's the lipstick?

1. Where was I ten years ago?

Right here same place same job that I've had for the last 18 years. I never imagined that I would be here for so long and I hate winter but it's just that seasonal aspect that I like about my job. Balls to the wall during the season but laid back in the winter. When I moved here one of the first people I met who also dislikes winter told me the rest of the year makes up for it and she was correct. So many perfect days filled with fishing golf and other fun things to do with geography and panoramas that never grow old. That is changing a bit now because just tonight I signed a contract and put down earnest money and purchased a trailer in Steamboat Springs something that I was able to pay cash for. Some of you know I had been struggling with the purchase of this house for a number of reasons. Have never carried debt of any kind and now is not the time to do so. I think I can be happy in my new place and actually have quite a bit of privacy with a large back yard with the Yampa river just out my back door. Unfortunately I'm slightly depressed because this decision was influenced by the results of a morally corrupt administration that has ripped this country apart for the last eight years. Combined with equally disgusting local issues enough was enough. Don't misunderstand I'm so lucky to have the lifestyle that I have but almost everybody living in this country has been negatively affected by these people and I am one of the lucky ones definitely.

10 years ago in partnership bought some property south of Pueblo that was paid for in May of this year and that's cool in these times. We saved this old house with a five-year weekend effort of extremely hard work and it was worth it. For me 130 trips 280 miles one way. I hope to live there some time in the future.

2. What was on my To Do list today.

One important thing and that was to go inspect the trailer that I just signed a contract on and make the decision whether I was going to purchase it or not. It has been raining as it was this morning then cleared off through the middle of the day and then rained hard several times later in the afternoon but I was able to accomplish this.

And like Liberality blog. While at work I can accomplish a lot and do better when there's more to do because then it becomes important and it's my job. After that I'm pretty lazy unlike many people who keep busy with constructive things or hobbies. I gotta work like a sonofabitch to sit on my ass as much as I do.

3. What would I do if I were a billionaire?

One thing for sure I would be more of a consumer and for damn sure I wouldn't develop problems like those lotto winners. I think things would be just fine. I would take care of people who are close to me and others that deserve a break or have really good ideas but can go nowhere with them. Support candidates for office that share my views. Probably have a few more toys and get myself off the grid. I would not build a giant house and I sure as hell would not continue to work like others who come into large sums of funds. I would not have a problem with keeping myself occupied in a positive fun way.

What I would do would be to purchase a Westphalia type vehicle and travel here in the states but in West Africa primarily equipped with hundreds of soccer balls to give to the kids along the way and assist villages and cooperatives formed locally if applicable. A little bit of money goes a long way in places like this around the world. I'd get a kick out of stuff like that.

4. Five places I've lived.

Cornfield, Iowa
Ghana West Africa
Littleton, Colorado
Phoenix, Arizona
Oak Ditch, Colorado

5. Bad habits

Sitting on my ass too much
Pepsi
Being too trustworthy
Intolerance to stupidity
A couple other things I prefer not to mention

On that morning seven years ago Bradley came into the shop and told me what happened. I went over to the chump house(pro shop) and watched for a short period of time and said in a very loud voice for the several dozen there to hear clearly "there go our rights" and walked out.

Looking back it seems a bit odd but I just knew. Called my long time PC buddy and we talked about what we had said for years that something like this was bound to happen and it did that morning. This event was not a surprise to us.

Finished out the work day turning the radio on only a couple times for unending speculation that served no purpose. Went fishing for six hours on a beautiful day in the Rockies catching so many it was easy to not think about what was to come.

Sat down in front of the tube at 9 o'clock and watched the nightmare that continues to unfold to this very day.

Our Government Is So Corrupt At All Levels I'm Screaming In Disgust

Government workers in Denver engaged in secret sex and drug abuse with oil company employees and accepted thousand of dollars in gifts while handling billions of dollars worth of energy contracts, federal investigators said today.

In the end chances are what is written about here for the most part will be found to be true. This is just one place and some involved act like there was nothing improper done. All this shit is so hard to take. Day after day for eight fucking years these bastards do this and worse and all the sheep want is their fucking football and Nascar.

Corporations and lobbyist's are so totally ingrained into government it is just another part of it and taken for granted that this is the way business is done. For anybody to think that even if BO is elected this will change is living a delusion.

I'm so tired of sucking on the hind teat!

Lipstick My Sorry Ass

The McCain campaign quickly posted a mischievous video charging that the "lipstick on a pig" quote by Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) was a sexist reference to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

These bastards have nothing and the only reason they cry foul continually is that this whore media we have in this country gives this and these people a forum to distract all from the real issues. It gets so goddamn old and is the reason we have a country of sheeple.

Two More Really Shitty Judges Almost Ready To Fly

The two Colorado Senators have been in dispute over these judges have come to an agreement.

Allard says Brimmer is "an outstanding attorney". Well if it's him saying that you can bet this person is one of the worst. Then Kenny boy Saladbar says this about his pick - called Arguello "a lawyer's lawyer".

Remember it was Saladbar who nominated Gonzales to head the Justice Department against massive opposition to the choice.

Screwed again you can bet on it.

Please Can Someone Stop These People Who Are Screwing Us

Polling Is Over

OTC's official poll results are in and it appears by one vote Palin will be here for the duration by a 40 to 33% margin. I picked two weeks but what the fuck do I know.

It appears the McMooseturd ticket will be a viable one for the goose steppers on the right. Baby maker is actually going to be interviewed this week and you can damn well bet she will come out smelling like a rose for the most part with the assistance of McMedia.

There is one issue that bothers me more than anything else and that is creationism. The fact that a person who could be president of this country actually believes the earth is 6000 years old or whatever fucking number they put on it. The fact that this fallacy is given credibility of any sort boggles what's between my ears. Carbon Dating is mathematics pure and simple. Mathematics does not lie it is irrefutable and cannot be argued against unless those arguing are given the formum to do so and here that is done willingly.

What does this say about us as a country and a society the leader of the free world promoter of democracy and all that good horse shit but the reality is many are still living in caves. Just how fucking dumb are we as a people? We are in some deep deep shit with the latest poll showing a five-point lead for the Mc Crazy's although there is another lesser-known poll that shows BO up by eight and that number should be 88 if anybody had any fucking brains.

Look the fuck out!

Imbecile Monkey Doings

The bodies of at least 10 children and many more adults covered in blankets and white shrouds appear in videos obtained by The Associated Press on Monday, lending weight to Afghan and U.N. allegations that a U.S.-led raid last month killed more civilians than the U.S. reported.

There will be an investigation just like the thousands of others. Very similar to all the angry letters written in the last years by the Dims to punish those responsible. Hack hack.

Drunk monkey to announce 8,000 troops to return from Irak.

The sheep will swoon and the neo-killers will get wood. Surge worked-repugs know best-love Amerika better-McCrashalot and Babymaker are good for you. Intelligence is bad-science who needs it?

Repug party up 5 points in polling. How fucking dumb is this country?

Fannie May and Freddy Mac Bailed Out

They finally did it, the rumors have been flying for weeks.

Funny how there was no mention of any investigations into possible criminal misconduct or any possible prosecutions for fraud.
Funny, Ha Ha.

Privatize profit and Socialize loss.

Somebody needs to explain this process to me so I can understand how Billions of dollars in bad loans suddenly became MY FUCKING PROBLEM.
Cocksuckers.
I already had to sell both of my houses and take the hit.
These motherfuckers should be moving into twenty five year old RV trailers right next door too.

Better yet, FEMA trailers.

Who Would Have Thunk

Someone today will be the 10,000th visitor to this site. Whoever that might be and to all the other 9,999 a huge THANK YOU for that! It is a wee bit humbling considering the 16th of this month is one year for the counter.

Initially this site was an experiment that was not all that successful and had become very boring gradually evolving to what it is now. It was so interesting as I learned the different things that could be done by visiting other places and realizing how you can reach out and touch so many others here and around the globe. That's just way too cool but it is the internets you know something our current prez and maybe the next know squat about. That makes me smarter than them which isn't saying a hell of a lot.

This post hit the counter jackpot big time and continues to take hits on a daily basis. It sure wasn't because of superb writing skills or the content of the post but of the person referenced which was the reason for the post. It also proved very quickly the local fish wrapper was just that as they reported one of the parties in the article linked to was Russian but the first day when so many hits came from Bulgaria a quick phone call proved this party was Bulgarian. That gives OTC more credibility than the fish wrapper.

I get a kick outta shit like this because it allows me to include things that are fun for me in addition to items that I feel are important or just the regular old rants. Sometimes it's good sometimes it's bad. But I try on a daily basis to put up something that hopefully is interesting.

I have made up my mind that fairly soon there will be a change in my life as I have decided to move from here after almost 18 years. I've grown weary of this place and many who live here with their small minds who are unable to grasp reality of the world around them because for what ever reason they feel they are entitled to do what ever they want without respecting other members of the community. There is something seriously wrong here and One Fly wants no more of it.

When this move happens it will probably be by the end of October. I will be a busy boy and there will not be much happening here. It will be a positive change as I look forward to to be removed from the constant bickering complaining and conflict that many thrive on here. Stick your soap opera up your ass people. When the door is hitting me in the ass on the way out of town that will be a good day.

Thank you again to the ones that come and visit on a regular basis and to all those who pop in too. Seriously I have made more good friends here than I have made living in this place for what has become too long a time. Giv'em hell!

Little One Fly's Religion Story

Some of my earliest memories are having to bundle up in the middle of winter freezing my ass off during the twelve mile ride from outta the cornfield on gravel roads to our parish to attend mass. The time period is early 50's.

There was this short fat little Monsignor Monster wearing these elaborate and colorful robes who would scream at the top of his lungs how little One Fly was going to burn in the fires of hell for a variety of reasons all very bad of course. Rules made up a very long time ago influenced by this guy who could feed a lot of people by snapping his fingers. That's what they were telling me. Of course you're down 2 and 0 right out of the gate cause of that original sin we're all born with you know. I didn't do a goddamn thing I'm just a pecker head kid who got dragged to this place against my will. You want to impress me turn the fucking heat up. I'm still freezing my ass.

In all seriousness at that tender age tiny One Fly called bullshit as he does to this day. Since I was not in control I had to go through the motions for a long time and hated all of it for the most part. As a sidelight during these times One Fly was not a good participant while attending this ritual and misbehaved at least that's what the story is. Dad would be glaring at me and if I was really pissing him off mouth some words. When it was over and on the way to the car he would say "You're going to get it". And on the way back home on one of those gravel roads you never knew where, he'd stop the the car pull me out and give me a spanking. OUCHY WAWA.
I'm pretty sure it was deserved.

Then there's the Continuing Education/Brainwashing side. Leading up to the second biggy the first being Baptism you study and learn all that will make you eligible to receive your First Communion where you are fed one of these guys for the first time. This was always confusing to me. All who enter do win a prize and that is you get to tell all the bad things you have done according to them to one of the robed guys who sits behind a screened window. Can't see him but you can hear him. You've seen him around and he knows who you are. What the fuck do you think little boys do? How I hated this and you had to do it there was no choice. Told to say any number of various prayers and wa la all is otay. You will not burn in the fires of this place called hell and are free to start all over. There need to be laws protecting children from this. On Saturday's would go the other direction for an hour of instruction from penguins at another parish. You didn't even get a break during summer vacation cause there was two full weeks of all day indoctrination back at the other place. This shit was brutal for a kid in my position.

Continuing with education we moved off the cornfield and into town so there could some of the real thing at the Catholic school during the junior high years. Included in that were daily hands on indoctrination sessions with the resident robe. One Fly left a perfect learning environment and entered a classroom of utter chaos. There is one of of my grade schoolteachers left and when I see her she never fails to tell me that I was her best student. I love this woman. It was chaos and the penguins knew so little they actually had students teaching math and science. It took six months for me to be corrupted by this atmosphere and when it came time to enter high school I was not close to being prepared. Just was not strong enough as a person at that time to say no to what I was being subjected to.

It was during that time and for a couple years during high school that I entered the inner sanctum of the robes and became a server. That was kind of fun because you got to mess with all the toys these guys used. You had to light the candles which could be a pain in the ass, fire up the old incense burner, mumble a whole bunch of Latin bull shit, and then when it came time for communion followed the robe around with this fancy wooden handled plate just in case he dropped the guy he was feeding to everyone. Of course when one of your buds was at the rail you jammed that plate into his throat hoping he'd choke and sometimes he did. Then during the sermon you had a birds eye view of all in the audience. Who was asleep who was drooling on themselves and who was misbehaving stuff like that. Then there was holy week. Seven nonstop days of mumbo-jumbo pass all. I have never in my life seen the likes of what happens on Thursday night of that week. This is bizarre shit at the very least. One of the downsides of doing this is that you had to wear this cheap ass black and white floor length dress.

Quit doing the server stuff but during high school continuing education continued with a one night a week gathering for more of the same. For many it was a way to get out of the house or off the farm for a bit of screwing off on a school night. The more daring ones would use this opportunity to sneak a few brewskis before heading home.

This has been the whole truth and nothing but the truth and what is important to me is that they didn't get me. They will never get me and I feel for all the millions who have been gotten and right now it is the ones that have been gotten that are fucking our country up in such a way with a mind fucked agenda and beliefs that are so far removed from reality it difficult for me to put into words what exactly it is except for this is just sick sick shit!

And as another sidelight will add this and make no conclusions or offer much up other than it did happen. I just say that while in West Africa and I will use the word "a spirit" interacted with One Fly. Never saw it but heard it and felt it no bull shit. Maybe it didn't like white boys.

My Kind Of Republican And Former Marine

If you’re not in support of the war, you’re not patriotic. If you’re not in support of holding Iran to account in accordance with the terms set forth by the Republican Party, you’re not a patriot. If you’re not in support of defining America along the terms that the Republican Party, in its very narrow-minded manner, seeks to define America, you’re not a patriot.

I learned and once again had what I know for fact reinforced by Scott Ritter as only he can do. This is good stuff and I have nothing but the utmost respect for this man.

For the Gestapo Types In St. Paul

You badgetized thugs are not doing the work of the people but of der Monkey Fuhrer.


You be ZOMBIE pronounced with an O not an ah.




Screwed Here And Out There

Events here locally are identical to what is and has happened on a national level. You have a few very vocal players who have been able to shape public opinion with innuendos falsehoods and lies. We know people believed the lies that got us into Iraq. Lies work quite nicely when used correctly no damn doubt about it. Then you reframe the issue into something else and wa-la there you have it.

Identical too because you have the local print media giving them the forum and participating aggressively in stirring the pot and shaping opinion with there own mudslinging innuendo and complete falsehoods. A true fish wrapper in every sense of the word. Combined with a new columnist with a wingnut back round who consorts with and is a good buddy
with a local slug who is a known racist and bigot who does not even live here and who is actively stirring up trouble behind the scenes. Sick sick shit I tell you!

These are my observations and if there is a point to be made it would be that it's hard enough to fight back against lies but when you have to fight the media too that stacked deck is ever so difficult to beat. Sonsofbitches all!

Leadville Cemetery

Leadville is an old mining town with a rich history and equally interesting cemetery. The stories that could be told so wanted to share this unusual place because so many of the plots are surrounded by wrought iron fencing.

It Ain't St. Paul It's Outrage City

As a citizen of this country to watch what happens here pisses me off to the extreme. They were released but their only crime was that during the '04 RNC I-Witness Journalist's video got charges dropped for 400 people arrested because their video of the incidents did not match the officer's statement of the arrest. Well they came to the Twin Cities to protect once again a persons right to protest in a lawful manner. The orders to fuck with these people and many others came from DC and is an example of what will happen if ever large groups come together to do the same. If BO is elected will there be change made here? Don't count on it not even for a little bit. LOOK THE FUCK OUT!!

Do you think for a moment this would have happened to Fox Whore News or any of the other biggies? This is not the local police but the FBI and others from this government.
The Amerikan Gestapo hard at work making truth a mute point. This is sick goddamn shit that is not going away. Someone convince me BO will change this.

Where I Might Live

Update-redid the video that was on here and this isn't much better. There will be another taken from a different vantage point that I will put up when I get home. Have 300 to do so I'm outta here soon. Weather isn't all that good and hope to at least fish for a little while on the way back.

Since I arrived Friday afternoon it's been windy. Have not been doing any video because my desktop picture program is corrupt when it comes to manipulating videos. I'm at the ranch and am using the laptop. Told Busted I was going to put something up plus wanted to try this new camera. This is dark and poorly done and maybe early tomorrow before I leave if the wind isn't howling I'll get something better up.


Turn the sound down on these because there is so much wind
noise . These are not very good but wanted to show some friends
the ranch. It's not really a ranch but it was at one time. The name
is actually Bender West. We saved this old house and it was over
five years of hard work and improvements continue.

National Monument is located along with many UFO sightings
and cattle mutulations.
