2/27/2019 - Birdie

Happy news today! I have adopted a rescue from Georgia. I looked into those beautiful eyes and fell in love. She is a Treeing Walker Coonhound. I don’t know her circumstances but I am the beneficiary of them and will love her and heal her broken heart as she will mine.

I haven’t blogged about Max and it still hurts my heart. Max was always off leash at home because he never left the yard with an exception or two of chasing a cat out of the neighbors yard. One very foggy morning in December I took him out while I smoked (I quit that). The last I saw him he was down by the mailbox watering the post and I told him to come on. I turned to put out my cigarette and turned back and he was gone. That was the beginning of a horrible day. I searched, I called, I recruited my family to do the same, nothing. My girls posted on FB pages, Kristin printed flyers, I camped out where there were sightings, nothing. I had rescued him from a puppy farm and had nursed him back to health. We took him everywhere, we traveled for five weeks last year, he had visited more states than most people, he slept with us, he was family. I think someone has found him and made him theirs. I can only pray they are good to him. I grieved, I cried and I vowed not to have another dog. Then I realized that my heart had a hole only another dog could fill.

There are local dog rescues and I had applied to a few of them. I had reached out to the owner of Doggone Happy Animal Rescue about a Coonhound but he wasn’t available. Friday she asked me if I was still interested in a hound, YES! Monday I met Birdie and made her my girl. We are learning each other and will become lifelong friends.

2/24/2019 - "I'm the boss"

I'm not a doctor but I do believe this woman is delusional.

It reminds me of The Honeymooners shtick between Ralph Kramden and his wife Alice where he tells her "I'm the King and you're nothing. The King. You're nothing.", she responds; "That would make you the King of nothing." Classic.

I think she has put an end to "dumb blonde" jokes. She's a meme creators dream!

"Unemployment is low because people are working 80 hours a week."

"Illegal aliens are more American than American citizens."

"Americans are dying from Global warming."

In reference to Amazon: "...take that 3 billion dollars that we were willing to give to Amazon and invest in our local community..." Um, it was a tax break, not a handout.

You can't make this shit up!

2/22/2019 - Who? What?

I have never heard of Jussie Smollett or the show Empire until recent events. Here is what I found implausible:

  • What rich black man would go out in the wee hours of the morning for Subway?
  • Who would find it plausible that Chicago is "MAGA" country?  This makes me giggle.
  • Chicago? MAGA country? Seriously!
  • Why would you hire other black men to beat you up, put a noose around your neck and throw bleach on you? A. Bleach would freeze at that temperature. B. Black men don't look like white men. C. You can't buy a noose at ACE hardware, I know, I used to work there.
  • Why would you get bent out of shape because the police called it an "alleged attack"?
  • Why would you initiate this attack on your person because the fake letter you sent yourself didn't get enough press?
  • Why would you waste police resources?
  • Why would you try to start another race war?
  • Why can't you use the President's name?
  • Why won't the media shut up about this? It's just another dude lying to get attention.
  • Why did all the black 2020 candidates jump on this story as truth?

The first time I heard this it rang untrue. I'm not a detective nor do I play one on TV but I knew this dude was full of shit. Sad isn't it? Now he has to live with the consequences of his choices. BOOM!

2/19/2019 - I am ashamed of Delaware

This morning in the news I see our AG is suing our POTUS over the emergency at the border. This is purely political and I hope our state can rally on Election Day and vote Ms. Jennings out when her term ends. I emailed her:

Ma’am, according to your mission statement, “Delaware's Attorney General, the State's chief law enforcement officer, has broad responsibility to combat crime, safeguard families, fight fraud, and protect consumers in the First State.” you will combat crime and safeguard our families. You oppose POTUS Trump’s emergency declaration so much that you are suing. You represent the great state of Delaware and I’m ashamed of you. How dare you? His declaration will be protecting our great country and state from those that bring in illegal drugs, don’t abide by our laws and threaten our safety. Ma’am I respectfully request you stop playing politics, drop the “D” behind your name and care about the safety of my family. Please drop the lawsuit.

2/18/2019 - President’s Day

As protests will be going on all over the country today against POTUS Trump’s decision to declare an emergency at the border I have one thing to say...badass.

2/15/2019 - Kim K and Kenny G

Blah, blah, blah...rich guy gets a dude that plays the most annoying instrument ever to play to his wife, blah, blah, blah.


And all this brought to you by the people that think we actually care, news orgs.

2/9/2019 - Green New Deal

AOC, U.S. Representative from the Bronx (I refuse to use her name as I'm sick of hearing it) is proposing a Green New Deal. She says, like, the world is going to end in, like, 12 years if we don't address, like, climate change. I propose getting a bunch of credit cards and spending to the max as I won't have to pay for them, like, if I live another 12 years. What is so unbelievable about this is...THIS WOMAN IS FREAKING CRAZY AND PEOPLE APPLAUD HER! Cows fart lady, get over it, plus they taste great!

The Green New Deal hearkens The New Deal enacted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt between 1933 and 1936. The New Deal proposed to enable relief, reform and recovery from the great depression. As a conservative I believe it hurt the United States more than it helped it. It grew government by leaps and bounds and parts should have only been implemented as a temporary fix to a horrible problem. I believe the country would have rebounded on its own, after all, we are the United States!

Back to the Green New Deal...how do you pay for it? A guesstimate is $49,109 trillion in the first 10 years. $49,109,000,000,000. I'll let that sink in.

She wants the economy to run on 100% renewable energy in 10 years. When she starts walking to work or visits her constituents in the Bronx, I'll start listening.

Walleyed Cory Booker jumps on the Green New Deal bandwagon while thumping his chest...from IOWA. How did he get there? In response to how we pay for it he says if we were worried about it then, we would have never gone to the moon. If this passes (and it won't) we will never go there again. He also asked who saved the planet from the Nazi totalitarian regime...we did! Um, if we fought totalitarians why in God's name would we not fight you.

I propose the Green New Deal should be renamed to the New Communist Manifesto.

That is my op-ed for the day.

Happy anniversary Hubs, a dozen and counting.

2/5/2019 - Sho'ah

Sho'ah mean Catastrophe in Yiddish. It refers to the Holocaust, state sponsored killing of six million Jews. The Germans called this "the final solution to the Jewish question".

When I hear of the Commonwealth of Virginia proposing a super late-term abortion which would allow infanticide of a viable baby because of the mother's "mental health concerns". That is murder and should be punished as such.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo recently signed into law a pro-abortion bill that would allow abortion up to 9-months of pregnancy for any old reason the woman can come up with. In other words "age, economic, social and emotion factors".

This is the time of Sho'ah in the United States. Even if you don't believe in God and know that all His creation is special in His eyes you must know that this is horrific! What have we become? Is this our final solution to the baby question?

Sometimes there aren't words. Sometimes all you can do is pray.

2/4/2019 - Commercials - Oy!

I hate commercials, some more than others. Since I’m home most of the time I watch a LOT of television. The one that’s under my skin features Broadway Joe Namath. The big question is...since when is Joe black? Seriously, he sounds black!

For comparison watch this, at 2:50 he says, “I guarantee it.”

Now, watch this commercial for the exact same phrase.

2/2/2019 - Good times

The 2020 election season has begun. I'm a MAGA voter and will be again in 2020 but isn't it fun to look at the other side of the ticket. There is a HUGE list of democrat hopefuls. Here is a partial list and my thoughts.

Cory Book aka/Spartacus - get your walleye fixed, no one wants to see that for 4 years
Joe Biden - from my great state of Delaware or Scranton, PA - pffft, you're dumb
John Hickenlooper - who the hell is he and who wants to say that last name
Eric Holder - go ahead and try to kick me, dumbass
Robert Francis O'Rourke - why would your Irish family give you a Spanish nickname plus if you can't beat Ted Cruz, why would you think you can beat Trump
Elizabeth Warren - u-hna-lv-hi
Howard Schultz(I) - you should have stuck to coffee
Hillary Clinton - though she hasn't announced, you know she will - BAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Bernie Sanders(I) - you are going to blow out your carotid if you don't stop SCREAMING
