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.

Sprinkles

And not talking about the kind that you put on cookies or a cake. The real thing called a shower. We had one and it settled the dust and it was a welcome change that lasted for a few hours.

What A Waste

People don't give a shit about others when it comes to their stupid fucking phones and thus they become killers and should be treated as just that. The reason why becomes secondary because they have to understand they are a killer first and sorry bout dat is last when it comes to the bullshit rhetoric of how. It gets to be old shit.

Colorado Repug Nazi Bastards

I will let Progress Now frame this. My point is that no matter where you are at as a Repuglican only the extreme right position is allowed. Any deviation from that will be dealt with. Even though you harbor a unregistered sex offender and say yourself you can't smile. If you want to see the prick who can't smile you can go here.

The Whites are good people and Republican. That does not fly in these times.

Across the state, what moderate Republicans, not to mention progressives, describe as the worst-case scenario has taken place. On the Western Slope, a moderate Republican Senator, Jean White, was hounded from office for daring to vote in favor of civil unions legislation supported by the vast majority of the public. The man who defeated her, Rep. Randy Baumgardner, helped lead the obstruction against civil unions in the House this year, and was richly rewarded by out-of-state conservative attack groups who funded a smear campaign against Sen. White. The push to defeat Sen. White after her brave vote was so great that Baumgardner won despite revelations about an unregistered sex offender living in his home.

Real Data

The chesters in the Pentagon released data that shows fewer soldiers are dieing from IED's in Afghanistan.

Some data was lost in the process of gathering it. That was found in the cornfield and irrefutable. That is the other soldiers that are not among those "fewer being killed" are just as fucking dead as before it became fewer.

Above NCAR/Flagstaff Fire

From a friend who heard the lightning strike that started the fire yesterday afternoon 1.5 miles away. It moved to the east away from their house.

The streaming video at the bottom is not the best but it appears it may have topped the mountain.  My bud says the wind is blowing now at 30-40 mph.




You can go here and stop the ad after five seconds if you wish.

5-3 My Honky Ass

I call it a unanimous decision when the three that "dissented" did so because they were pissed the whole law was not going to be upheld. The biggest terrorist's of the bunch Scalia, Alito and  Thomas.

No linky to the bull shit lies as "allows police officers to ask about immigration status during stops" because this as we know is much more than that.

All I gotta say is you brown people down there in Arizoma better LTFO! And that goes for anyone as well. And no one can get it that this means them too determined by one person with a gun and a license to use it as he or she sees fit.

Bring papers now boy!

There was no way these people wearing dresses appointed by corporations were going to rule any different. Get used to it there's more coming down the tube. 

It Ain't Right

It's 6:30 in the morning without a cloud in the sky. I would assume temps will again be at or a bit above a 100 today. There are many records being set and Colorado burns.

The Arrogance Of All The Panetta's

This brilliant dick head has found the solution to ending suicide in the military. First step is lay the responsibility on other peoples doorstep. Then the solution becomes simple.


What a piece of shit this guy is.

Ludlow And The Hate - Anniversary Day

Originally posted on 2/27/11

It was a bit different back in 1914 but also a lot the same. One thing that remains totally intact is the hate. The powerful hate so much they kill and in this case two women and 11 children were massacred at the hands of the guvmint. Wiki Link.

The ones on the other side are outraged and their hate gushes out. I'm pissed and have written many times that I "hate ". There is a difference in that I wish no harm come but these people worry me. What makes it difficult to swallow is they base their beliefs and intensity for them on known falsehoods mixed as well with god nonsense.

OTC supports all unions in this current struggle and understands the risk many take to express their support for the right to organize. The Professional Left has an excellent podcast on unions from 2/25.

Outta Nowhere

A picture of a huge dust devil that went much higher in the sky than shown by this quickly snapped picture.  Quick because I was busy dealing with a vehicle malfunction.  I basically got nowhere last post and to my recollection this is the first time I've ever had to leave a vehicle behind.  I got a ride home the same day and I've just been hanging low cuz there's a piper that needs to be paid and he don't come cheap.

Outta Here

It's time to get away for a bit. Headed over to the San Luis Valley/Alamosa area which isn't that far away. 45 miles due west.  Never really been inside the park nor stayed there. If there aren't too many people I will spend the night now that they let me in free and give 50% off on camping.

Thinking too that Taos should be visited as well. Never spent much time there either and it's actually closer than Denver. Just going and see what happens and get some bike riding in too.

It has been warm and dangerous in respect to fire danger. Saw this morning Colorado's snow pack is at 2% of normal. This is not good at all.

Have a good one everybody and LTFO!!

The Eyes Have It

Walked back to this wetlands area early this morning where yesterday was able to capture some decent pictures.

I've seen guys like this before. Click on the picture and take a closer look. The eyes are pointing straight up. Back in da boat they were green. Maybe this one will be green later. What they do is hover and then go straight up and come back down to where they were before.  

A new guy on the block with the dark deep red for eyes but looking closely they may not be the eyes.

 I have several pictures of the same but I think this is better and think these eyes would be the perfect shade of green for a really poor scary insect people eater movie.

Lookee here - he's dining.

There was an inland sea here those millions of years ago. This was one of the reasons for today. In a way this picture seems appropriate. The ones flying back then would probably be trying to take a chunk outta ya for lunch.

I do pay attention b b b b b but I almost stepped on this bull snake's tail. I then payed more attention. He did not move as it was warm up time. No eyes here but they were had.

Academy Wannabe Flyboy's Cheat And Now Caught Again

Can I say I have never cheated on a test? No I can't. Stopped very early on with that strategy. At this level I think cheating enters a whole different category. It takes Congressional assistance and helpful sometimes generational "who ya know" to get into this place.

There you will if you graduate be among the elite who defend our country and have been given one of the best "educations" one can receive anywhere.

Expulsion should be the penalty for cheating at this level but my opinion of that don't mean squat but what I also think is this -

It was the pressure of getting caught and the shitty feeling of doing something real wrong that ended my career is this business. 78 is a huge number and if they're cheating at this stage of life some of these 78 will always cheat and maybe while they are on duty "protecting us".

House Investigation Committee Commits An Atrocity

You ain't seen nothing yet I tell you. This incident is just a teaser of what's in store from the Right after they become even more powerful.

Shit like this pisses me off as it should everyone who has even a bit of cognizance. This is serious shit people.

Briefly and the article is a must read - LINK

You are invited again to testify again before a Republican House Committee investigating effects of mountaintop mining. You submit a photo to use because the time before you felt members made little eye contact. You are informed the photo is "inappropriate" and can not be used.

After testifying you are questioned for 45 minutes about the picture taken by an award winning photographer with the parents present in a everyday situation caused by the very issue being heard that day. Not supposed to do this but I did. Here it is.
Charge me please but do you even have a clue the real fucking criminals sat behind the bench that day in DC.

The head of the committee Rep. Doug Lamborn is a piece of shit from up the road in Colorado Springs had this to say-

"I accept the judgment of professional staff," Lamborn said. "If it's inappropriate I don't think I should be viewing it. The fewer people who viewed it the better." and Lamborn said Tuesday he still hadn't seen the photo and had no intention of looking at it.

I'm not sure how to express my outrage and if I have any hopes it would be that people if they become aware of what happened that day that they would be outraged as well and change if they are on the dark side to the side of the truth.

Truth that is not coerced by hypocritical religious values and unlimited corporate money.

We are so screwed. That if anyone thinks for a second this country can be governed given recent history or think that this election will repair it in any way you are living a delusion.

What a shitty message but the fact of the matter is this is what people want and this is what we're gonna get a lot more of and real soon too . Watch it happen and just LTFO!!

Oh Please Please Stop

They're not going to because they don't have to. Most municipalities have been caught flatfooted with this and thanks to the regulations frackers can do pretty much as they want. Our government can't even get them to disclose what is in their fracking liquid.
