200 ton lump of coal 1a

Interstate 90 was abruptly closed this morning to facilitate the transport of a two hundred ton block of coal in route to South Dakota’s famous Mount Rushmore. The unorthodox combustible solid was acquired to add Barack Obama’s face alongside Teddy and Abe.

Which of course, as a twenty year resident of Western South Dakota and a constitutional conservative, (not to mention my disdain) for “Barry’s quest” to CHANGE America into a vision held by his “mommy” and every “God denying,” card-carrying “commie” on the planet, …

..I was reasonably and unequivocally agitated!

When will, ..if ever? Our “self anointed” Messiah discontinue his onslaught against ambition and American enterprise?

Love is a Lifetime..

love is a lifetime 1a

Good morning boys and girls, I begin my offering/blather this morning with a “heartfelt” apology to my readers for “up and leaving” last week without a word.

Albeit as I quickly learned to jocularly replied to “Kelley” and the (fantastic staff) on the sixth floor at “Rapid City Regional Hospital” when asked a question for which I had no answer; “I would like to respond, ..but unfortunately, I recently had a stroke. 🙂

LMAO

(Sidebar).

A soliloquy that I’m sure Kenny and Bob “both” will enjoy.

According to Webster: “so·lil·o·quy,” A dramatic or literary form of discourse in which a character reveals his or her thoughts when alone or unaware of the presence of other characters.

Continuing…

Although Kelly is definitely the rock on the sixth floor, I owe a genuine heartfelt “thank you” to everyone from Tim to Rose, as well as a heartfelt apology to everyone who cared for me that I unfortunately was unable to learn their names.

My excuse, (not because I had a stroke), but rather because I’ve been a “lifelong loser” when it comes to (remembering) people’s names, with the rare exception of course, of those special individuals who possess a smile that radiates from their entire being.

Thank you for your smile Anna.

Neither last nor least, the doctors that tended to my “fubar” were appreciatively upfront and candid and since reality is my bag, my heartfelt appreciation goes to them as well.

Although expressing my appreciation and my love for those that cared for me in the hospital and for my good friends who rallied to pray for me, Greg, Gabriel and Steve, ..Ed, ..Kenny and Bob and David and Tonya, and my niece Kimberly, and my daughter Chery in California, and my daughter Crystal and Montana and my son Steven who resides on Anderson Island and my readers like Kenny and Bob and aunt Bodie and Ruthie in London and all the rest to numerous for my (fuzzy gray matter) to currently deal with.

I love and appreciate you all.

Again, not last nor least, my wife Linda, who has endured my being for more than 30 years and my brother Clifford who is, (if nothing else) a “pillar of granite” especially when it comes to (being there) for family.

I would love to continue this session, (as those of you who read my blather fully understand; (I love to ratta ratta), albeit as the infamous nemesis of the elderly, and/or, old people, “fatigue” is currently gnawing at my ankles, ..as well as my (fuzzy gray matter), I’m going to put this “old horse” back in the barn until tomorrow.

Thank you all for hanging in there with me and please know that I love you all.

Star-crossed Liberal or Deranged Delinquent?

starcrossed Obamacare 2

According to Webster: “star-crossed,” adj. Opposed by fate.

marijuana and socialism 2

According to Webster: “de·lin·quent,” adj. Failing to do what the law or duty requires.

In opposition to the mainstream and cable networks media, I choose to ignore “their” standard (politically correct) rhetoric and continue heralding (my opinion) that every deterioration in America as well as every deterioration around the world is directly related to the “policies and agenda” of our (lead from behind) Commander-in-Chief, and/or, Barack Obama.

Time after time after time Barack Obama has stood before America and championed his “fantasy” that America is doing fine, both on the home front with (our diminished economy) and with his “fantasy” that Al Qaeda, Isis and “terrorism” in general has been defeated.

Obama do nothing 1a

Question: Who is this fellow?

A hell of a lot better question: Why are the decent men and women in America standing silent while a wimpy shrimp that was presented as filet mignon is systematically pulverizing the foundation of our democracy?

Climate Change..

climate change 1

According to Webster: “con·tro·ver·sy,” A dispute, especially a public one, between sides holding opposing views.

flower children 2

As I’ve stated many times (my opinion), life is not a gathering of flower children, life is a competition.

My ‘Lil brother drop by yesterday with a copy of Michael Moore’s movie “Sicko,” a cinematic effort, (in my opinion), as all of his cinematic undertakings, was unequivocally another endeavor aimed towards self glorification.

Although I have no argument with the content of Mr. Moore’s movie, I do have a quarrel with his “flower child” presentation and his opposition to reality.

no free lunch 2

Universal Healthcare, or more correctly, the (bogus illusion) of Universal Healthcare in America is categorically another nail in the coffin of America’s liberty and freedom at the peril of the flower children who truly want to believe.

Progressive liberals chipping away at the U.S. Constitution is not new, progressives want control, total control and they will stop at nothing, lying, cheating and even “murder” to achieve their goals.

According to Webster: “mur·der,” n. (In context) The unlawful killing of one human being by another.

helicopters Vietnam 2

Vietnam was not a war, it was a conflict authorized by the Gulf of Tonkin resolution passed by Congress gave Pres. Johnson the authority and power to use military force, but did not declare war.

An un-Declared war is un-Constitutional.

Accordingly, we are once again left to a coin toss, and/or, an individuals (personal opinion).

According to God’s law; “the six commandment,” …

thou shalt not kill 2

So everyone who served in Vietnam, (to include myself) is a murderer.

Albeit, as God gave man free will and man in his infinite lack of benevolence has used God’s grace for profit, man suffers the wrath of man, not the wrath of God.

what does that mean - graphic 2

It means, (not all men) believe in God and charity, it means that some men place (wealth and profit) above benevolence and life.

climate change - God and man 2

This man knows his God, respects the earth and appreciates life.

climate change - Einstein 2

Albert Einstein was a man of science, and when asked; “To what extent are you influenced by Christianity?”

He responded with…

“As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene.”

“Have you read Emil Ludwig’s book on Jesus?”

He responded with…

“Emil Ludwig’s Jesus is shallow. Jesus is too colossal for the pen of phrasemongers, however artful. No man can dispose of Christianity with a bon mot!”

(Sidebar).

According to Webster: “bon mot,” n. (in context) A witticism.

Continuing…

“You accept the historical existence of Jesus?”

He responded with…

“Unquestionably! No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.”

Obama and daughters

“…I’ve got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.” — Barack Obama

In other words, if and when either of Barack Obama’s girls choose to engage in a connubial relationship, he has pre-excused them of any wrongdoing or “responsibility,” as well as declaring that babies, and/or children are punishment.

Arrogant? “Yes,” Ignorant? “Absolutely.”

Fright Succumbs to Might..

Yosemite Sam - God and guns 2

According to Webster: “suc·cumb,” (in context) To submit to an overpowering force; To yield; To die.

Jihadists are trained to be shadows, to skulk in the dead of night for prey that they can later dispatch with impunity and without putting themselves in harms way.

Jihadists (are not) soldiers with honor or a “code of conduct,” they’re jackals that nip at the ankles of humanity. They’re the lowest form of “rabble” on the planet.

American soldier 2

(U.S. soldier).

U.S

As a veteran of “combat” in Vietnam, and a recipient of the Purple Heart, I have full knowledge and an understanding of the articles I have posted above.

I was as (opposed) to the Vietnam War as any human being on this planet and I’m still “opposed” to war. Nonetheless, as an American at the age of seventy-three, I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to grab one of my hunting rifles and (march) to the sound of the guns, if America was to come under attack.

Teresa,                                     (A Serious Note).

My sister Alma is currently serving three years in Arizona for possession of marijuana. Alma began smoking marijuana in high school to be popular along with all the other things that make girls popular in school.

I love my sister and I tried to tell her that what she was doing would mess up her life. My sister didn’t listen to me and she didn’t listen to our mother.

My mom and I have to travel three hundred miles to visit her, so we only see her about every three months. She’s been in prison for just over a year and I cry when I see the tattoos on her face, on her back and on her legs.

My sister is ruined and there is no one to blame because no one in America cares, not in school, not in church and not in the government.

In my Opinion - Finished

Hello Teresa, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative.

I agree 1

You wanna change America, ..stop voting for our pretentious career politicians.

ostentatious politicians

According to Webster: “pre·ten·tious,” (In context) Making or marked by an extravagant outward show; ostentatious.

Incarceration in the United States of America is one of the main forms of punishment, and/or, rehabilitation, or both for the commission of felony and other offenses

The United States has “the largest” prison population in the world, and the second-highest per-capita incarceration rate, behind “Seychelles” (which has a total prison population of 786 out of a population of 90,024).

In 2012, the prison population in the United States was 707 adults incarcerated per 100,000 population. (Source Wikipedia).

the Republic of Seychelle

The Republic of Seychelles, is an “archipelago” in the Indian Ocean. The 115-island country, whose capital is Victoria, lies 1,500 kilometers east of mainland Southeast Africa.

Life is not a smorgasbord, ..it’s a roll of the dice…

roll of the dice 4

As lamentable a circumstance as it is, ..we (don’t) get to pick our parents. Consequently the first two pages you can rip out your dictionary, are the page containing the word “fair” and the page containing the word “equal.”

Once you understand that there’s (no equality) in the world and life (isn’t fair), you’re up to speed on reality and that’s as good as it ever gets.

According to Webster: “re·al·i·ty,” n. (in context) The state of being actual or true.

We the People - Graphic 4

Although I readily admit that (ideology) is preferable to reality in comparison, because when you think about it, who doesn’t like a happy ending?

Obama food stamps - hands 2

According to Webster: “i·de·ol·o·gy,” n., The body of ideas reflecting the social needs and aspirations of an individual, a group, a class, or a culture.

Obamacare - pixie dust 2a

According to Webster: “i·de·al·ist,” n. (In context) One who is unrealistic and impractical.

I dropped out of school, not because I was lazy or stupid, but rather because I judged school to be stupid. I earned my first dollars raking leaves from around “Lupes’ Café” in Thousand Oaks California.

My father taught me that a man works for his living and that a man treats others as he would have others treat him. What could be (simpler or more rewarding) than to be honest and compassionate?

Although I feel bad for those that didn’t get the message, I don’t feel responsible for them.

peanut gallery 3a

The President of United States is “contractually” bound and sworn to uphold the Constitution.

Leading this nation is a job, it is not an adventure, nor is it a license to exercise one’s imagination.

The Constitution dictates that the President shall enforce the laws of the United States, it does not provide for a President to pick and choose the laws he wishes to enforce and ignore those that fly in the face of his personal beliefs.

I purchased my life membership at age twenty-one and like you I resent self-important liberals deciding who I am and what I am allowed to do.

Bryant Gumbel may hold water with the edgy ego set, but to me he’s just another narcissist enamored by his mirror and serves no purpose.

In my Opinion - Finished

Hello Ellis, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your support and your narrative.

After writing the piece I posted on Friday, I decided to delve a little deeper into Mr. Gumbel’s history…

Bryant Gumbel - face 3

..and I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised to learn he didn’t drink the “African-American” Kool-Aid as he has his ethnicity listed with Wikipedia as; “Louisiana Creole.”

Albeit after that, his Kudo worthiness began a steady decline as I read his bio…

Boy Scouts Incident…

A CBS camera caught a disgusted Bryant Gumbel blurting out “What a fu**ing idiot” just after he had finished a hostile interview with Robert Knight of the Family Research Council (FRC).

The incident occurred at about 7:15 a.m. ET on Thursday, June 29, 2000 following Knight’s appearance to defend the Boy Scout policy of excluding gays from being leaders.

The Media Research Center reported that he uttered those words; Gumbel openly admitted to saying so when guest-hosting a June 2007 episode of Live with Regis and Kelly.

More Controversial remarks…

In February 2006, Gumbel made remarks regarding the Winter Olympics and the lack of African-American participation.

So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world’s greatest athletes despite a (paucity) of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention.

(Sidebar).

According to Webster: “pau·ci·ty,” n. Smallness of number.

Continuing…

On the August 15, 2006 episode of Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, Gumbel made the following remarks about former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue and Players’ Union president Gene Upshaw and directed these comments to new commissioner Roger Goodell: …

“Before he cleans out his office have Paul Tagliabue show you where he keeps Gene Upshaw’s leash. By making the docile head of the players union his personal pet, your predecessor has kept the peace without giving players the kind of guarantees other pros take for granted. Try to make sure no one competent ever replaces Upshaw on your watch.”

In response, Tagliabue said: …

“What Gumbel said about Gene Upshaw and our owners is about as irresponsible as anything I’ve heard in a long time.”

Gumbel’s response was: …

“It’s a lot like covering any story […] You see what is in front of you and you report on it.”

On the October 18, 2011 episode, Gumbel evoked slavery in his criticism of NBA Commissioner David Stern over the league’s lockout.

“His efforts are typical of a commissioner who has always seemed eager to be viewed as some kind of modern-day plantation overseer, treating NBA men as if they were his boys. … His moves are intended to do little more than show how he’s the one keeping the hired hands in their place.”

And of course his most recent…

In a Rolling Stone article dated January 20, 2015, Gumbel said; …

“There are a few things I hate more than the NRA. I mean truly. I think they’re pigs. I think they don’t care about human life. I think they are a curse upon the American landscape.”

As for Bryant Gumbel’s military service, as expected of an ego elitist, ..he has none.

Gumbel can grumble till the cows come home and it won’t change a thing as long as common sense conservatives go to the polls in 2016 and cast their votes for folks that believe in jobs and commerce.
