I guess the older you get, the more often this happens.  Learned recently that my brother has been diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer probably as a result of decades of suffering from HEP C.  He's been doing chemo but won't know if it works until the end of July.  Have our fingers crossed that:
1.  The chemo works


2.  If it don't work, he can get on the transplant list.

Going to go see him the first of Aug............

I hate this



How complex 'Crop Circles' might appear.


Interesting headline from very LIBERAL CA newspaper

California gun sales jump; gun injuries, deaths fall

Here's the story in case they pull it....

 Gun deaths and injuries have dropped sharply in California, even as the number of guns sold in the state has risen, according to new state data.

Dealers sold 600,000 guns in California last year, up from 350,000 in 2002, according to records of sale tallied by the California Attorney General's office.

During that same period, the number of California hospitalizations due to gun injuries declined from about 4,000 annually to 2,900, a roughly 25 percent drop, according to hospital records collected by the California Department of Public Health.

Firearm-related deaths fell from about 3,200 annually to about 2,800, an 11 percent drop, state health figures show.

Most of the drop in firearm-related injuries and deaths can be explained by a well-documented, nationwide drop in violent crime.

The number of California injuries and deaths attributed to accidental discharge of firearms also has fallen. The number of suicide deaths involving firearms has remained roughly constant.

Two caveats: State figures track gun sales, not ownership. They treat a family's first gun purchase the same as a collector's twelfth. Second, gun sales in California peaked in the early 1990s, as violent crime also peaked.


Damn, I miss Carter



...who really wants this snarly, screeching, she-wolf in the White House? 
 Bring back Nixon, Reagan - hell even Carter - rather than her and the Intern molester.


Tips From the Redneck Book of Manners

1.  Never take a beer to a job interview.
2.  Always identify people in your yard before shooting at them.
3.  It’s  considered poor taste to take a cooler to church.
4.  If  you have to vacuum the bed, it is time to change the sheets.
5.  Even if you’re certain that you are included in the  will, it is still considered tacky to drive a U-Haul to the funeral home.

1.  If  drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers covering the label.
2.  Avoid throwing bones and food scraps on the floor as the restaurant may not have dogs.

1.  A centerpiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist.
2.  Do not allow the dog to eat at the table no matter how good his manners are.

1.  While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one’s OWN  truck keys
2.  Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. However, if you live alone, deodorant is a waste of good  money.
3.  Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to detract from a woman’s jewelry and alter the taste of finger foods.

1.  Always offer to bait your date’s hook, especially on the first date.
2.  Be aggressive. Let her know you’re interested:  ‘I’ve been wanting to go out with you since I read that stuff on the bathroom wall two years ago.’
3.  Establish with her parents what time she is expected back.  Some will say 10:00 PM; others might say  ‘Monday.’ If the latter is the answer, it is the man’s responsibility to get her to school on time.
4.  Always have a positive comment about your date’s appearance, such as, ‘Ya’ll sure don’t sweat much for a fat gal.’

1.  Livestock, usually, is a poor choice for a wedding gift.
2.  Kissing the bride for more than 5 seconds may get you shot.
3.  For the groom, at least, rent a tux. A leisure suit with a cumberbund and a clean bowling shirt can create too sporty an appearance.
4.  Though uncomfortable, say ‘yes’ to socks and shoes for this special occasion.
5.  It is not appropriate to tell the groom how good his wife is in the sack.

1.  Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if the gun is loaded, and the deer is in sight.
2.  When approaching a four-way stop, the vehicle with the largest tires always has the right of way.
3.  Never tow another car using panty hose and duct tape.
4.  When sending your wife/girlfriend down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask her to bring back  beer.
5.  Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle, especially when driving.
6.  Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession.

1.  All the DNA is the same.
2.  There are no dental records

Nope, .....I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone because of profiling.



Let me get this straight . . . .

We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!

'What the hell could possibly go wrong?'
