This fellow hangs out in the tree just off the balcony. Must be right at four feet long. The are two other smaller ones as well.

We Got Jobs

And lookee at the rich repugs smile like flies on shit. Yes but of course jobs are needed but you don't have to think too hard about what they relate to.



Radio slugs and writers and others as well in Denver love to and continually refer to Boulder as "The people's republic of Boulder". Yup that they do and some snicker when they say it.

Yes what can I say? I'd like to see these 400 "jobs" not be in the perpetual war field but something like Sustainable Agriculture. You betcha that would work.

Another View

This short film done by one of the few friends I have left using the same videos but different as it's set to music as well. It's about when we revisited the Outlook Ruin from the back side. I put this up today because I wish I was there or some place like it right now instead of going out the door in a few seconds to go to work.

bama- A Cheap Whore For The Repugs

You asshole. What this man is saying is that we have to give up even more with Medicare and Medicaid.

But Obama said both parties must be prepared to "take on their sacred cows" as part of the deficit-reduction negotiations.

And then the man throws out a joke. An inside joke to the repugs and a slap in the face to you and I.

In a blunt challenge to Republicans in Congress, President Barack Obama insisted Wednesday that limiting selected tax breaks for oil companies and the super-wealthy must be part of any deficit reduction plan.

Like that's gonna happen my ass.

The very idea that this man even suggests cuts in these programs to further a right wing agenda is enough to ride this man outta town on a rail. He will never get a vote from me. That will not happen.

No matter what comes out of this man's mouth when you say shit like this you are no friend of the working man and the middle class.

The Way It Is

From Reality Zone a post filled with passion and one I agree with 100%. The title "Obama is responsible for the deaths of American troops in Iraq !"  My question to him and our conversation was about just how many agree with this. Not just on parts but all of it. I used to think there were many of us on the same page but I do not anymore. Maybe 5% and that's not enough. 

The United States of Amerika has become a country that finds wars of choice and is now a country immersed in perpetual war and THE SHEEP BLEET  for more!

Thanks RZ.

I am willing to bet most people have forgotten about Iraq.
Our "WAR OF CHOICE" president, and the MSM have done their job well.
These deaths are on Obama's soul.
The dems can no longer blame W.
This is the Big O's cemetary.
He left 50K behind.
He could have pulled them all out.
Now they do not want to leave come next year.
Americans should be ashamed of themselves.
Shame on their ignorance, their stupidity, and their choice of security over freedom.
Most of  all shame on their silence.
How can any decent human being support this war of choice president.
America has now grown accustomed to the face of war.
It seems that they do not care, do not mind, pay no attention, or is it just " not in my back yard " mentality.

I am sickened by this endless war without borders mind set.
If you support O, then you are condoning war, death, and the loss of your own soul.

Americans have lost their way.
Or, has this been their path all along?

We can not spread democracy and freedom around the globe, when we do not even have it at home.
Corporations, special interest groups, foreign governments control our country.
Not we the people.
Even our judicial system is corrupt.
Yes, all the way to SCOTUS.

O has taken us deeper into Afghanistan.
You know, the one he called a " just war".
Now he is taking us into the abyss of Libya.
Which country will be next?
So go ahead.
Stay in your comfort zone.
Stay silent.
Support and vote for your choice in the worst of two evils puppet masquerade  [dems. vs. repub.]
It is all a dog and pony show.
And we have become their droppings.
Here is a quote by Tacitus
"To plunder, to slaughter, to steal, these things they misname empire; and where they make a wilderness, they call it peace."
Tacitus We have brought death, evil, and sorrow to a large portion of the planet.
We still condone and support dictators.
We condone, support, enable, and help fund genocide, and apartheid against the Palestinians by the Israeli's.
We stay silent on Bahrain, Yemen, Sudan, and many many other places around the world.
O signed a paper saying that we will continue the W policy against N/Korea.
Now there are reports coming out that the N/Koreans are resorting to cannibalism.
They are/have been starving to death.
Where is O's compassion?
Is it Empire "uber alles", or is it Armageddon  for all humanity?
One that is brought upon us by a team of uber elite psychopaths.
Time is running out.
Make your choice.
As war mongers like to say.
"You are either with us, or against us".
I will say the same.
You are either a war monger, and an agent of death.
Or you are for peace, and humanity.
Take you pick.
TICK TOCK ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Hello Hague

Are you off your feed or something??

 Muammar Gaddafi and two senior members of his regime are facing arrest warrants from the international criminal court for alleged war crimes against Libyan civilians. 







You forgot to include this murdering treasonous bastard.

And that's a fact!

Dopers In Da Boat Make The WSJ

That's the perception presented in my opinion anyway. The linked to article is fairly decent but the so called doktor Kelly in the video and print has problems and that was found out in comment threads locally. The numbers are actually fairly startling across the state for businesses allowed and then forced to shut down with no compensation.

This effort to ban these businesses was calculated and planned across the state. This was not done in these localities by groups of concerned residents/citizens because the fabric of their local community was being ripped apart by people smoking MM who had always been smoking it anyway. The badges were involved as well and this was done behind closed doors by the right. And it works real good. From the WSJ.



Down the road a bit a legal grower was recently arrested and charged with DUID. These numbers are up because the badges made them go up. This man was targeted make no mistake about that.

It's A Maybell Yuk Yuk

You betcha - it's a knee slapper ain't it! People like me pull in off the road to get our yuk yuks as well to share with others. A soul saver this is not. I'll miss these.

Outta Here

Going west to where I've spent so much time last year and a couple times this year as well. There are a couple other things I want to check out - look for pictures of course and hopefully come across some interesting things not seen before. There will be no problems with keeping warm or worries of rain or snow.

At times it seems a bit odd going back to the same area so much but once I get to Maybell  after which there is nothing for 60 some miles a sense of adventure sets in and a relaxing  piece of mind that could not be felt if I remained here.

Have a great weekend everyone and thank you for stopping by.

Plenty More Of Our Dollars On Our 4th Or Is It Our 5th Or 6th War Front

You betcha! Hillary promised that.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton promised that Washington would provide more money to help Central America battle drug cartels. She said the U.S. would hike its aid to the region by more than 10 percent to almost $300 million. The U.S. allocated $260 million in 2010 to fight transnational organized crimes in Central America.

Just imagine the uses you and I could find for 300 mil. This will never change. 40 years of fail and counting.

My country is so bat shit stupid we are not capable of  having an intelligent discussion on industrial hemp let alone legalization.

We luv our wars on all levels.

War Whore bama


LEAVE
1. to go out of or away from, as a place: to leave
2.  to depart from permanently; quit: to leave a job

Sacks of Shit
Politicians who say one thing and do something other
Lying Sacks of Shit
Most politicians when it comes to war and bama is at the top of the pile.

There is no -  repeat no respect for this man. Been pretty nice around here but when it comes to wars and lies outrage trumps all. Fuck bama and the bush he rode in on!

Will the left ever get it? All we get from liars like bama is never ending war. So many on the left kissed his ass and still are. The piss ant little positive things done by this man mean squat or even less when it comes to war that never ends. 

No money for nothing and when they want some they come to us. Funds for war you betcha. We are so screwed and I will never vote for this bastard who loves war. He is a liar like all the rest. One more time it needs to be said. FUCK bAMA.

It's Not Much But It's Something Anyway

One of the things I've always enjoyed was walk mowing greens. It's fun and when you are finished and have done a good job meaning mowing straight it has never failed to make me feel better when you look back at it and it's almost perfect.

Not real hard to do but many struggle and never get it.. The HOC (height of cut) these are mowed at is .125 or 1/8th of an inch.




If you see that slug in the Utah dummy post I apologize. I can not get rid of him.

Bad Soil -Long Winters And Wooden Boxes

Make for these impressions in the ground. I have been here several times before but not to this part of the cemetery. I was surprised at all the sunken graves. This cemetery is huge and strange in many ways. The picture at the beginning show the names of three children buried at different times in the same grave apparently. Life was worse than tough in these mining towns and camps in the Rocky Mountains.



Here's the picture so you can read it a bit better.

Whore AP Slams bama On Guns

The headline with no link. 

PROMISES, PROMISES: No action from Obama on guns

Of course this is in reference to the winger who shot Representative Giffords and killed six others.

If anyone thought for a second that there was going to be any meaningful legislation on guns from this tragic event please stop being so naive. It was not going to happen and it certainly won't happen in the future. Things like that are never going to be allowed in our New Amerika.

Fuzzy & Boomer Blogging

A blogger friend who grew up and farms with her hubby in Delta on Friday's blogs from her dogs perspective. Fuzzy and Boomer's escapades are the best and I have found them to be something to take your mind off of other things and enjoy some chuckles. Link

What I find interesting with Linda her blog Life on a Colorado Farm is that the equipment they use is old John Deere which is a testament on just how good this stuff is if you take care of it.

Meet Fuzzy and Boomer. I tell her she can sell these stories as they're that good.

Happy Father's Day

The same post for 011 as the three years previous. I miss my Dad.

The best to all Father's out there and I know most of you hold your children very close to your heart. Here is one of my favorite pictures of my Dad taken in France in 1945. Enjoy your day.



FROM LAST YEAR

Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there. I am not one and my dad is gone so the best to all of you guys out there. I bet my blogger friends who are fathers have some great kids. I miss my dad!

FROM '08

This is the first Father's Day I will not be making that call. I claim my Father's brother Rollie as a substitute Dad for this year. What I miss most is making those calls on a whim just to bs. The picture is a one shot deal. Up for a day only for the obvious reason. Taken next to the cornfield over two years ago the one I grew up in and my Dad farmed. Dad's name was Paul. NOTE The picture is back and will remain.




HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL THE GREAT FATHERS OUT THERE!


Dad is gone-Uncle Rollie's pooch gone-just found out another long time friend gone at 47-a first cousin soon to be gone-Tim Russert bang, gone at 58 my age-Mom's side of the family having a history of being gone just like that.

May not be related to Father's Day but very much value the close and few friendships I have and that includes relationships on the highway of the internets those that are the most informed of all.

Given the fragility of life every once in a while and the importance some put on theirs it's good to put things in perspective now and then. After all none of us are no more than piss ants in time. I love this video.

Good On Michael Martin Murphey.

I have a tremendous amount of respect for people that do this known and unknown. Beulah is just up the road a bit. Nuff said.


Another Maybell Stumper

This one is easy compared to others you see.  The guy on the golf cart drove right by. He could have asked to have his crutches be gone but noooo. He must not have noticed the possibilities of endless miracles.

It Has Been Confirmed!

Newty Gingrich's play toy that he travels with is an alien life form. It's true and you can take that to the bank. The proof is below. Word on the street is that he could be one himself.





Five O'Clock

That's right and it's raining and the time we need to be at work. It's dark and of course in this business there is no one with any common sense to start golf events at a reasonable hour so the crew can get out there and get our jobs for a bunch of hacks who can't even hit the damn ball. I can't get out of here soon enough.

Bush & Bama One in the Same

Put the chimps name in here instead of bama's and what do you have. The identical thing. This is so sick and we are so screwed and if anyone can't see that it's a shame. I have no respect for this man any more. Another war loving corporate ass kissing repug enabler is what we have. Peace Prize winner - what a goddamn hypocrite. It's embarrassing as an American for him to continue to claim that prize.


Defying congressional criticism, the White House insisted Wednesday that President Barack Obama has the authority to continue U.S. military action in Libya even without authorization from lawmakers on Capitol Hill.


Fall In And You Will Probably Perish

That's what happened yesterday afternoon. A local fell into a small creek up river and was swept into the Yampa and then downstream a couple miles to where he was pulled out just out side my back door. That sucks and didn't need to happen I did not know this man by name and he had no family here outside of an ex-wife. The river and streams will continue to run high for some time yet.  LINK

Bishop Castle Is Politics

I kinda know the story behind this and I include a short video of the one man who built this amazing structure. This was the first time I've seen him.

I'm glad I got the whole place to myself for as long as I did. There's no music and what you hear is what I heard. A couple people toward the end and me taking a few breaths -sorry.  This isn't that good but I find this kind of stuff fascinating and the staircases must be conquered on the next visit. That and both towers all the way to the top.

This man has been at it for most of four decades and did so because of his distaste for government. Sometime there will be a post about where I come from and what this one man built there something on the same magnitude but done for religion. YIKES to both. I'm going to go get a picture of the grotto so you can get an idea. What people will do.

It's a toss up who's the best here in nuttery - a crazy ass German priest years ago in the middle of a cornfield or a fellow named Bishop in the Colorado Rockies who appears to be going strong to this day.

First Of The Year

This is the first columbine I've run across so far this year and if you've been here before you know they're my favorite flower. This is a wild flower and people who have gardens their columbines have been up for a while.

The second picture is one of several and they all came out pretty nice. Enjoy the hell out of looking at colorful flower pictures and sometimes they are just downright striking.

It may not be much but it's something anyway. I do not tire of it. It's supposed to be fun damn it and it is.


 Remember you can click on a picture twice and each time it gets larger.



Why Not To Eat Farm Raised Fish

According to this piece farm raised can still contain mercury and other bad things that are bad for humans and other animals.

Farm-raised fish may have somewhat less exposure to mercury than their wild free-foraging cousins because they are usually fed a controlled diet, often consisting of more grains and soy, a cheaper and more abundant source of calories than fish meal. But they can still absorb mercury, since most fish farms are themselves located in the ocean, just close to or abutting the shoreline.



Ya think? I don't eat this stuff because it tastes so crappy. Why does it taste like this? That's easy because they grow and live in their own feces. But it's what Amerika wants and has embraced for not only fish but most other animals raised as a food source as well.


Plus much of this corporate food is mushy plain and simple in addition to tasting like crap. Think about it when you take that next bite out of your next chicken breast. There is no texture to the meat and I have quit buying chicken breasts.

I wanted to buy a whole chicky the other day and the smallest one was 5.5lbs. No. Do you remember back when you would take a bite out of the chicken you cooked and those wonderful juices so full of flavor would run out.

I miss that and that ain't coming back ever!

White Trash Killing Bears As Always

It's humans who cause these deaths because they are stupid. I hate to see the animals put down because of dumb ass humans.

Nevada Division of Wildlife biologist Carl Lackey says the older female bear was put down on Friday near Holbrook. He says someone had been feeding it table scraps.  LINK


I stand by this post from 7/19/08. Beaver Creek is in the Vail valley and is where the richest of the rich hang out.

Beaver Creek White Trash Causing Bears To Be Killed

“The bears go where the trash is,” Hampton said. “And the trash is in Beaver Creek.”

They knocked this sonofabitch clear outta the ballpark. Yea bears go after trash that's a given. It's the super rich elitist white trash that has all the fucking money in the world that do not adhere to the rules and do not buy bear proof containers that are the cause for these bears demise. I say let the bears stay and get rid of the white trash and both problems go away.

Couldn't Do It

That is  - go out onto this thing. I'm stopping again and will. My legs were weak not from climbing but because well you know.  Getting inside that ball too. It's scary and most of the time no hand holds. YIKES!

HRC Says

"We don't want to see a new colonialism in Africa," 

What she really means is that this is part of our Empire and we don't want to share and goes on to say-
"When people come to Africa to make investments, we want them to do well but also want them to do good," she said. "We don't want them to undermine good governance in Africa.".

Let's see didn't we and aren't we shooting in Libya now. It's always okay when we do things in other country's whether in the open or covertly I mean after all we are who we are and they are not. It all makes sense when you look at it the right way ya see.

 We must fight hard to keep the wheels of our overseas possessions and interests greased and insure our declining wealth is not compromised by those hoards of yellow ones way over there.

The One So Sorry Quivered That Day

I think about this story from the way back machine and it may be up there with one of the first biggy apologies ever. It's J J J J Jimmy  Swaggart near the top of the heap of hypocrites. A human greaser slug. What always stood out to me and I remember laughing so hard through the whole thing but it was when his lower lip and jaw quivered that I cracked a rib and had to get wrapped up. Even da Swaggart had to practice before the mirror on that one. America loved it then and loves this kind of crap to this day. This country is in big trouble.

Laugh again because it's funny damn it..

Bama Says

This-
President Barack Obama says the growth of the U.S. economy will depend in part on training new workers for jobs in the manufacturing industry.
And this-
"Right now, there are people across America with talents just waiting to be tapped, sparks waiting to be lit. Our job is to light them. And there's no time to lose when we've got folks looking for work, when we've got companies that need to stay competitive in this 21st-century economy," he said.

Fly says this-
BULLSHIT! This country shipped those jobs out of the country long time ago and is still doing it. The only thing for the most part people are being trained for is flipping shitty tasting burgers and other mushy meats that taste like shit as well. That and scrubbing toilets. Don't believe this for a second.

The Weiner Is A Dick

This man spoke out for our side so well but he's has to go. In some cultures this behavior flies and may even be rewarded but not here. Get it Weiner? No I guess not. Do I give a shit what you do in your spare time - not really. But when it enters my world I give a huge shit what you do after hours.

You screwed the pooch in such a way that you will never be allowed to have any credibility again. Some people forgive this but not the right wing whore lie machine that will never let people forget how you lied just like them. Time and again and all of a sudden I understand the tears came and da mighty Weiner fessed up.

You dick! You care more about your self and your weiner than the people you represent. What don't you understand that in this day and age you just can't do this shit and get away with it. That chances are very high you will be found out.

Your credibility is gone and the right will assure that there you will never have any.

Get your weiner ass out of Dodge as you are far too flawed to be of any good. You're a dick!

Bang The Drum

Just a little bit anyway. The weather starting the first of the month has been soooo nice. Went golfing for the first time this afternoon after work. Came in with 40 which included a triple bogey. Pared out the last three holes which was nice. Trust me I'm a shitty golfer. Hate keeping score and generally don't but you always have an idea.

First hole was an easy par with two good shots and a birdie putt that came close. First time out and first hole par. It was a success already. The very ugly triple bogey came on the next hole after a great tee shot. Birdied #3 with a rewarding downhill fairly straight 20 footer. We mowed our greens for the first time with out five new $7500 mowers and the ball was rolling so well. Par bogey bogey and hit and putted like the good golfers and pared out the last three. It's so easy when it's working good it really is. Guys like me who can't hit as far as they used to who mishit a shot well then pretty much you're playing for a bogey. I couldn't hit 'em any better than I did today.

It's supposed to be fun damn it and it was.

As a side note for the most part seven months went by from the time shorts weren't worn anymore for the year until it was warm and nice enough to wear them again.

High Water Is Getting Higher

Peak is not supposed to come until the weekend. Already one record has been broken. This video is illustrative only. Ah but the sun is out.

I did this in a huge hurry this morning and there are big mistakes but you'll get the idea.

Plus we got frost as well.

It's Called Conspiracy

Billie put this post up about the Mexican Federal Police and the gestapo tactics they used in Juarez recently. Cops do whatever they want because they can and generally there's no one to stop them.

In this state with the ongoing battle of Medical Marijuana and the attempts to take away the rights already granted by municipalities for dispensaries the badges have entered the fray with lies of their own because they and a few others literally cannot stand the fact that some people have the legal right to use this medicine. It drives them bat shit crazy indeed.

The cops come to these forums and say again and again how many DUID tickets have been written since the opening of these legal businesses. Problem is they are lying and we know they do it all the time so this is no issue here doing the same to help their flawed logic.

Can I prove it? Hell no but what is known is that very seldom is there ever a ticked written for driving under the influence of drugs. Now all of a sudden around the state and particularly where these dispensaries are located there has been a number of these written. It the same people doing the same thing but in a different way and that includes the medicine chest junkies too. So what's the difference?

These assholes conspired as a group to write tickets whenever they could for DUID so they can do their best to take away certain people's livelihood because they don't like it.

That's exactly what is going on and that's a crime and these bastards are criminals!

Why We Are Different

I remember the message of this fellow Edwards and I also remember the anger when he quit because of his actions. The anger was real as the message he had was the best of all. My anger was from the what if he would have made it to the top and then the crap came out. He had no respect for any of us.

From what I see from those I consider on my side is if he committed a crime he needs to be held accountable for it. I agree 100% and that's the difference between us and them.

Have you ever seen very many if any repug take the same position on the crimes their side committed?? Of course not. Whether it's a crime or gay/bathroom stall/diaper/wife cheating or what ever other kind of debauchery they might be into at the time the bottom line accountability is not a priority to these wondrous people who care so much about our country and it's values ya see.

We're different,smarter and we care and that makes us better than they are.

I want to be an extreme bigot in respect to this issue and the slugs on the right who claim to luv their Amerika soooo much.

Got Moths?

They're not here but more on the front range and in this case at the ranch. Article
 Initially they came every year with a vengeance. Then it kinda stopped a time. This year they are back maybe worse than ever before. The picture does not portray this well. Add a couple hundred and you got something. Open certain doors and a thousand or more will engulf you and I do not like that. So no picture of that.

This is gross and can be mentally trying I kid you not. If you do not have a house that is tight given the right conditions the inside of your house  - - - well you get the idea.

Even at that they still get in and there are always a moth or two or five flying around being obnoxious.

This gets to be old shit real quick.

The Water She Rising

Runoff has begun and minor flooding is happening around the area.



From just a bit ago.

Fairly heavy frosts the last two mornings.

And The Answer Is

We just took delivery of five new mowers. These are specialized to cut grass on a golf green and are designed to mow at very low heights. We mow ours at .125 which is 1/8th of an inch. These have yet to be used. What do you think one costs?


Here's another view.
With a corporate discount of 25% each mower carry's a price tag of $7500. One of the reasons the game of golf is not cheap to play except for the better off.

Another Landmark Month

For a while it looked like when Osama Been Had was finally in the "We Got Him" category deaths were slowing down a wee bit on our second War Front. Not to be though as in the end the other side racked up enough kills to make it a another record for the month of May.

They do love to kill Americans and the numbers prove they're getting better all the time. Our leaders love supplying the fodder for just that purpose who are remembered just a little bit one day a year.

Soon we'll be drawing down from this long hard fought fight over there and all this will become moot ya see.

These troops on their return home from Afghannystan will travel on the same train as the 50,000 from Irak as that War Front winds down as well. It's been one big party.

What To Fear Most

A Medical Marijuana Dispensary??

Or crazy bastards like this women doktor who says no to the whole legal process that was followed from state level down to city level. That it has no merit and will destroy the fabric of local society so badly that the rights of these people who started these businesses must be taken away if society at local level is going to survive.

Link to the gestapo article.

I despise the bastards on the right with my whole being and there will never be any common ground found when it comes to insane dark age mentality they want to impose on all of us so we can live in their world so they feel good about it.
