I don't know whether to file this in the 'don't give 'em ideas' folder; or the 'Watch for it' folder...I'll go with the latter. I was thinking about the VW recall, and got to wondering how many people will actually not want to get the fix. I mean, your car is a lot more screamin' and thrifty as it is, well...
So watch for big fines for non compliance. Something like 25 G's. After all, this is a double transgression. You've committed sacrilege against the mother earth god, and, you've questioned the validity of the progressive agenda regarding global change or climate warming, whatever it is this year..Speaking about watch for it; this Bengazi hearing...don't think for a minute that it's actually a threat to Hillary. I'd love to be wrong, but, you know how these things go. The court case is just for show, a mere formality on the way to the media joyously proclaiming her innocence. Snow White, you know. And the email scandal, you're still diggin' that up? The emotions of injustice have a very short shelf life in America. They have all the staying power of the fizz in last week's uncapped 2 liter soda bottle.

We went to Fort Worth Texas to see my oldest daughter show a horse in a wild mustang competition. On the way back, I wanted to drive a more southerly route, and visit friends in Louisiana, then stop at my birthplace, Biloxi Mississippi. As it turned out, they had moved to Gulf Port, which is near Biloxi. They invited us to stay at their place. We got up the next morning and went to the beach.
Man, it was paradise. We walked around the beach for awhile, then, to fulfill an idea I've had for awhile, I went to Walmart. There's a highway that runs along the beach for miles on end. I was driving along, with both windows open, and the mild wind blowing through. The air had that ocean smell. It wasn't hot or cold. There were sidewalks and concrete curbs next to the highway. The planter area between the sidewalk and the curb had enough sand blown into it, that the sand was overflowing a little onto the street. I was loving it, so totally ocean side. I found the Walmart, no rush, because my work schedule had an opening for this trip. I bought fishing poles and tackle for the kids. We went out onto a pier that went out into the gulf. The beach is so gradually sloped that you can walk out a hundred feet, and only be in up to your knees. So they made the pier quite a ways out.
No sooner had my youngest son's bait gone down to the bottom, than there was a strong tugging on the pole. I told him to reel it in, he had caught a sea eel. Man that thing put up a fight. It fought so hard that it destroyed its lower jaw. So we kept it. We caught some small catfish, and released them. The kids don't care if the catch is small, they just have a blast catching something. We went back to our friends' house, got our things, and headed back toward home. We made a stop in Biloxi, and went to the same place I fished when I was 5 years old. It's a bay there. There's no wind, and no sand, but the pier is very nice. We fished again, and immediately, the kids caught a couple of perch. We ran out of shrimp, and used the eel for bait. The kids say it was the best road trip ever.
After that, we visited relatives in Alabama. As we were leaving, I spotted the crew cab ford truck in the pictures. I really like that truck. It's for sale, but I'm not sure I should post contact information...I'd miss out myself. I already have one old truck. It's the 1951 Chevy truck. In the pictures, we just unloaded it from the trailer. It looks better now; simply by washing it. I thought it was a deteriorating green paint job with red primer showing through. Actually, it was a fairly solid green paint job, with fading red on it. Much of the red washed off. The military truck is one I spotted on the way to a job.

I would celebrate being wrong... Posted by admin in Random-multiple at 23:38
For probably more than a year now, I've been predicting the likelihood of a Hillary presidency. I thought we'd see the same old game plan; make the Republican nominee so liberal that conservatives are disinterested. I would celebrate being wrong about Hillary, and will be the first to admit it. Speaking of being wrong about Hillary, is Joe Biden wondering about the matter himself? The consequences could be grave...he might end up getting so depressed he commits suicide, or has a plane wreck.
Now though, there are quite a few choices among Republicans. I'm a little suspicious of Donald Trump. Alan Keyes might have alluded to my doubts in a recent column, where he mentioned something about back room scripting of the angry conservative. I don't remember the exact wording, or the exact meaning for that matter; but it might be exactly what I suspect: The progressives know their agenda is in trouble; so they need a proportionate distraction or wrench in the opponent's machine. They confer on what an angry conservative would sound like, then get a well known figure to play the role. Conservatives need to have a good alternative ready, so they're ready for some Perot like tactics.
On the other hand, one could say that Trump's comments and actions are (disclaimer follows) similar to when Christ was accused of casting out demons with dark power. ( What an awful comparison; but I'm not mentally cross referencing anything else.) That is, the progressives wouldn't use something to awaken the conservatives. The progressives would be like a house divided against itself. If Hillary does pull through, it will probably be a combination of the media political alliance convincing the public that the emails are only classified because they are now being reviewed; and the short attention span of the public. Hmmm, maybe yet another consequence of all the car chase scenes and other stuff on TV. "I'm tired of this email server stuff, let's get some bread and go see the chariot races."
Of course, I still maintain that America's problems aren't political, but spiritual. And not in a vague, we should all read the Bible and pray more way. I've been finishing a difficult job that demanded a lot of time. While there, I listened to the radio much of the time. I was really getting put off by the continual emphasis on politics while never mentioning God. I don't mean a vague mention but more like what does God think of this, and what is He doing, or more likely, not doing. I mean I was REALLY getting put of by what looked like a denial that was in fact idolatry. Relying on something other than God to help. Sean Hannity said "The world without America is a dark place". Actually sir, the world is becoming a dark place BECAUSE of America. The world is a dark place without CHRIST.
But...MAJOR PARADOXICAL CELEBRATION of being wrong about one thing. I guess it was a couple weeks ago, Glenn Beck devoted the first segment of his show to the very issue. Citing an Old Testament passage, he said that this is us. This is our last chance to turn back to God. My words here can't express how good that was. It was great. Paradoxical because the message is so grim and real. By either natural consequences, or the supernatural consequences, we have no future without seeing recent events as critical milestones.
This is how it all looks to me, call it my theory. Jesus said that God is very offended at those who treat children badly. Specifically, he talked about children of faith, but in my theory, ruining the faith of all children is offensive to God. It would be better for the perpetrators to have a large stone tied about their neck and be cast into the sea. So...
By removing Bible and prayer from the classrooms of the country, and replacing them with a theory that says God factually doesn't exist; America offends God bad enough to remove His restraint from us. The country falls apart. People are deceived into thinking things are manageable by the lie of debt. Even if one denies that there was a supernatural reaction, the natural consequence is to have generations without moral compass (think mass shootings). Now we're at the point of seeing those effects in the abortion videos. The thing I'm concerned about is that before, we were in free fall, without God's intervention. Now, He might not be passive about His intervention. Even if we suffer only the natural consequences, it is this: If we can't stop this, we can't stop anything. Is California suffering a drought because of their recent new laws regarding misguided trans kids? Even if the rains come back, the underground aquifers might be permanently damaged.
The following will probably get me labeled as racist, but so what, I'm already a major bigot for my views on the homo agenda. If "Black lives matter" then why do blacks treat themselves so badly? Aside from the violence, they maintain a culture that is incompatible with the rest of society. Maybe they don't want to conform to white peoples' ways, but I've got news: it's the international culture of technological progress. Business and academic dress and speech codes are the same for whites and millions of Asians. I just realized something a few days ago: I have not a single recollection of hearing an African American playing anything other than black music. I have never, not once, heard classical, western, or classic rock coming from their sound systems. It looks like self inflicted isolation.

This Baby parts for sale video is a big deal, one way or another. If Americans don't put forth a reaction that is more than emotional. our will to resist will have no teeth left on the gears. The barbaric practice will be de-facto legalized. I guess the slippery slope changes to a steeper pitch. On a related note, I started thinking about the war on racism having similarities to the war on drugs. See the graphic below.
I read the other day that Texas is spending $800 million of their own money to build a border fence? Watch DC tell them no; German co-pilot in the Alps and all that.
I'm sure you've noticed the disclaimers at the end of some radio commercials? The guy talks really fast: CertainTermsAndConditionsApplySeeYourDealerForMoreInformation...Wouldn't it be funny if every time a politician spoke in the media, they were required to have the same disclaimer?

The government employees are given over to the progressive agenda. We're further down the road than many realize. Eric holder disregards DOMA. The FBI has "hundreds of agents" looking here and abroad to find the motive of the shootings in Chattanooga. Hello? A guy with a name like that targets military personnel? He didn't do the theater or the mall. Notice too the wording: whether he acted out of his own motives, or was radicalized. His personal finances were failing, or he was motivated by ISIS. How about a third option, it was his own personal Jihad? Point is, that whole agency is completely loyal to the progressive takeover. Wake up, see it for what it is. Not enough? How about Sheriff Joe now being harassed? And the group that made the baby parts for sale video is now the target of investigation. Open suppression of dissent. That to me is a BIG turning point. Before, there would have been a big fake show of concern, a few heads would roll (temporarily reassigned) and the matter would be intentionally forgotten. Mark this day on your calender.
On a related note, I wonder if anyone has made the Distraction Chronicles...keep a record of events damaging to the progressive image, and see if there's a correlation of loud distracting events at those times.
I am completely for stopping illegal immigration, so don't take this the wrong way. Actually, I was thinking about working in a land where I didn't know the language well. Is an immigrant that doesn't know the language well more attentive to the work process? Not so much assembly line work, but construction. The immigrant won't be able to take orders very well, so he'll be anticipating what step is next.
It has been said that time began when God made the Earth and Sun; but I'm wondering if we can regard that as the physical beginning of time, and another point as the de-facto beginning of time. Or the beginning of time for mankind. This is just something I was pondering while driving; I think there's a connection with the rest of life. Specifically, if man was eternal at the beginning, well, then time began for man when sin came. The importance is that the clock began ticking when evil came. The clock began ticking for everything and everyone in this world. We get old and die, countries rise and fall. People get in a situation that's better than the awful situation of others, so they want to maintain it. That desire leads to the myth of continuity. I guess my speculation is that time itself has an evil side. Technology brings some good things, but the bad guys are keen to use it. They incrementally consume and corrupt that which is good. They nullify the education of a generation; so they can take -everything- like "taking candy from a baby". Thus, time is a vehicle of evil? I'm not trying to establish a philosophical idea that may not be defensible; but trying to get people away from complacency, away from ignoring how bad things are. You grow too many roots, and you lie to yourself. Abraham stayed mobile. Lot went to the city and had a house. Be mobile in your mindset.
Two questions. I have two questions for all those talk show hosts that claim to be Christian, but never acknowledge God or the Adversary as relevant to current affairs. First question: Is there an omnipresent God who created the heavens and the earth, the God of the Bible? Second question: From what he has revealed of Himself, do you suppose he considers the mandatory teaching in all public schools that there is no God, no standard of morality to impressionable children to be just another passing political incident? I think He would tell you there is no greater offense, and that it's the entirety of future generations. We now have that generation, the Godless generation. Where's the bumper sticker that says: "I'm godless, and I vote"? I noticed.
It would be one thing for countries like Russia and China to be buying gold. Economics can be complex, so I don't know all the interactions of one county's decisions. It could be that since those two countries are trying to establish an alternate world currency, they want to hold less dollars in reserve, to weaken the importance of the dollar world wide. The gold is there to offset the decrease in dollars? I guess countries have a reserve so that they can counter difficult trends and events in their own economies. Then again, they really could be expecting a crash of the dollar. As I said, I'm out of my league on this one, but what I'm wondering about is Texas. As a part of a bigger national economy, they might not need a reserve to make the same manipulations and counter measures that a country would. So why are they bringing their gold back to Texas? Do they know something about the near future of the dollar?
And now, a couple cartoons for your entertainment.

I guess it was General Dunford that recently said Russia is our greatest threat. Well wrong; people like you sir are our greatest threat. Another great threat: the Media-Political Complex has a Jihad against truth. Remember when it was SO WELL established that global warming was a threat? Now it's climate change. If they're not lying by commission, they're lying by omission. How long do you suppose the baby parts for sale incident will be covered?
Aside from furthering the public indoctrination about racism, the recent episode with the Confederate Battle Flag was more than anything else the M.P.C. flexing its take-down muscles.

OK, quick prediction here, if you want to call it that. It's 11 am Wednesday, and Bing News hasn't said anything about the Greek (Parliament?) voting to accept the latest bailout. I say that it will pass. Not because I know anything about it, other than to not approve the measure would mean less big government in the world, and that's a step backward for the progressive agenda. The Legislative branch of the US gov is going to vote on the latest Iran nuclear deal. Same there, done deal. In fact, all this is just for show, to maintain the appearance of autonomy. So I wouldn't call these things predictions; just observations of continued direction.

thinking that politics can save this country diverts attention from
God, who alone can save. I see so many things that way. The news is
