Riddle Me This

Gulf  Coast States

Louisiana Alabama Mississippi Texas Florida

Would the East Coast, West Coast, of even the Great Lakes Coast have Obama dragging his feet on the skimmer ships like the Gulf Coast has experience? Let’s review who all of the governors are on the Gulf Coast:

Texas = Rick Perry (R)
Louisiana = Bobby Jindal (R)
Mississippi = Haley Barbour (R)
Alabama = Bob Riley (R)
Florida = Charlie Crist (R when last elected)

Wow, no Democrats — but no one would ever accuse Chairman Obama of trying to screw his enemies — would they? Just food for thought — I’m sure there’s nothing to make of it.

Unemployment Is A Good Thing!

Now I Finally Understand Unemployment

Now I finally understand. Unemployment is good, because we spend billions of tax dollars on unemployment payments, which creates jobs so we can pay more taxes to pay more unemployment, to create more jobs, to pay more taxes, to pay more unemployment, to create more jobs…..


Message For The 4th of July

A Reading of The Declaration of Independence

If you are under 35 and went to a public school, chances are that you really never learned anything about the 4th of July beyond that you boss will pay you to not work if it falls on a weekday — and what brand of hot dogs to cook. However, it was the day that 12 States (one of the original 13 Abstained — do you know which?) approved and read out loud to the public — the Declaration of Independence.

While I'm sure that many young people choose to move on and not listen to the above, because schools have taken on the agenda to demonize The Founding Fathers — as we match blindly towards Communism. However, the five minutes I spent watching this video put a lump in my throat, especially in these times when we cant relate to the tyranny of a government no longer of the people, for the people.

A Back-Alley Antique Shop in San Francisco’s Chinatown

A tourist wanders into a back-alley antique shop in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Picking through the objects on display he discovers a detailed, life-sized bronze sculpture of a rat. The sculpture is interesting and unique that he picks it up and asks the shop owner what it costs.

“Twelve dollars for the rat, sir,” says the shop owner, “and a thousand dollars more for the story behind it.”

“You can keep the story, old man,” he replies, “but I’ll take the rat.”

The transaction complete, the tourist leaves the store with the bronze rat under his arm. As he crosses the street in front of the store, two live rats emerge from a sewer drain and fall into step behind him.

Nervously looking over his shoulder, he begins to walk faster, but every time he passes another sewer drain, more rats come out and follow him. By the time he’s walked two blocks, at least a hundred rats are at his heels, and people begin to point and shout. He walks even faster, and soon breaks into a trot as multitudes of rats swarm from sewers, basements, vacant lots, and abandoned cars.

Rats by the thousands are at his heels, and as he sees the waterfront at the bottom of the hill, he panics and starts to run full tilt. No matter how fast he runs, the rats keep up, squealing hideously, now not just thousands but millions, so that by the time he comes rushing up to the water’s edge a trail of rats twelve city blocks long is behind him.

Making a mighty leap, he jumps up onto a light post, grasping it with one arm while he hurls the bronze rat into San Francisco Bay with the other, as far as he can heave it. Pulling his legs up and clinging to the light post, he watches in amazement as the seething tide of rats surges over the breakwater into the sea, where they drown.

Shaken and mumbling, he makes his way back to the antique shop.

“Ah, so you’ve come back for the rest of the story,” says the owner.

“No,” says the tourist, “I was wondering if you have a bronze lawyer.”

The deal on this computer is that it is a $1000 computer that I bought for my mother a few years back. She didn’t renew her anti-virus and caught some kind of Porn virus on it. I spent less than 30 minutes trying to fix — and then when I realized that I’d have to format the drive and reinstall Windows from the CD — I just got her a new one instead. I’m certain the computer is repairable, but it will take someone with time and understanding to deal with it. She couldn’t find any of her disks — so you only get the computer and charger. As is – Where is.

This stuff won’t last long — first to email me saying they want to buy it win. Richmond/Katy Texas area.

The Ram Chargers with "High &  Mighty" in 1960

The Ram Chargers with “High & Mighty” in 1960

Do you have a copy of the June 2010 Mopar Muscle Magazine?

Are you willing to spend about 15 minutes of your spare time to contribute information to promote the Mopar hobby?

The last few issues of Mopar Muscle Magazine have recapped the new book out on the Ramchargers. In the June 2010 issue — there are four pages discussing the original members of the Ramchargers.

It sure would be nice if those with a copy of the June 2010 issue of MMM would pick just one of the original members of the Ram Chargers and take the 15 minutes to relay the facts in the magazine article to the Wiki of the actual member. The links are below.

It is not Rocket Science to add information to a Wiki — and the Help link in the MoparWiki is very easy to understand.

15 minutes spent will go a long way towards helping to promote the Mopar hobby in general by providing searchable facts on the Internet — and MoparStyle specifically by bring Mopar hobbyists to the site.

15 minutes out of your life is not an unreasonable request. Please help with just a little bit of your spare time. I can’t do this all by myself.

Mowing the Lawn – Texas Style



We have the standard 6 foot fence in our backyard, and after hearing about numerous, recent, burglaries in our neighborhood, I decided to try & prevent my wife & I, from becoming just "another statistic",……..So,…….I had the following brainwave………
I purchased an electric fence and ran a single wire along the top of our fence. In fact,…I actually got the biggest cattle charger, our local Tractor Supply Store had in stock. It was designed for 26 miles of fencing. I then used an 8 ft. long ground rod, and drove it 7.5 feet into the ground. The ground rod, I was told, is apparently *the key*, as the more you have in the ground, the better the fence is supposed to work.
So,….last week, I was mowing the grass in our back yard, with my cheapo Wal-Mart 6 hp big wheel push mower, when I noticed the darn hot wire was broken and laying out in the yard. As I was SURE, I had unplugged the charger, before I went outside, I just pushed the mower around the wire, then reached down to grab it, to throw it out of the way. Turns out, however,…..that I apparently had NOT, remembered to unplug the charger, after all !!!!!!…….
So,…..there I stood,….the lawnmower running in my right hand and the 1.7 giga-volt fence wire in the other hand. (now keep in mind, the charger is about the size of a marine battery and has a picture of an upside down cow on fire on the cover).
Well,……..time stood still………. The first thing I noticed was my pecker trying to climb up the front side of my body….. My ears curled downwards and I could feel the lawnmower ignition firing in the backside of my brain……… Every time that Briggs & Stratton rolled over, I could feel the spark in my head. I was literally "at one", with the dang lawnmower engine !!!
It seems as though the fence charger and that piece of crap lawnmower, were fighting over who would control my electrical impulses.
Now,….although science says,…………you cannot crap, pee, and vomit, all at the same time, I beg to differ………….Not only did I do all three at once, but my bowels emptied three different times, in less than half of a second !!!……. It was a Matrix kind of bowel movement, where time is creeping along and you're all leaned back and BAM BAM BAM you just crap your pants three times. It seemed like there were minutes in between, but in reality, it was so close together it was like exhaust pulses from a big block Chevy turning 8 grand !!!
At this point, I'm about 30 minutes (maybe 2 seconds) into holding onto the fence wire. My hand is wrapped around the wire,…. palm side down, so I couldn't let go. I grew up on a farm so I know all about electric fences…..but Dad always had those POS chargers made by International or whoever that were like 9 volts and just kinda tickled……
This one I could not let go of !! The 8 foot long ground rod, was now accepting signals from me, through the permadamp Ark-La-Tex river bottom soil. At this point, I am thinking I am going to have to just man-up and take it, until the lawnmower runs out of gas……… "Oh, Damn!!",…… I thought,……..as I remembered I just filled the dang tank !!……..
Now,.. the lawnmower was starting to run rough. It had settled into a loping run pattern, as if it had some kind of big lawnmower race cam in it. Covered in poop, pee, and vomit on my chest, I am thinking: "Oh God,… please just let it die… pleeeease…." But oh nooooo,……….it settles into the rough lumpy cam idle very nicely and remained there, like a big bore roller cam EFI motor waiting for the go command from its owner's right foot……..
So there I stood, in the middle of June, 104 degrees, 80% humidity, standing in my own backyard, begging God to just kill me…..
Well,…….God did not take me that day…..he left me there, covered in my own fluids, to writhe in the misery, my own stupidity had created !!!
I honestly don't know *how*, I got loose from the wire……I woke up, laying on the ground hours later. The lawnmower was beside me, out of gas. It was later on in the day and I was sunburned.
There were two large dead grass spots where I had been standing, and then another long skinny dead spot where the wire had laid while I was on the ground still holding on to it. I assume, I finally had a seizure and in the resulting thrashing had somehow let go of the wire.
Upon waking from my electrically induced sleep, I realized a few things:
1. Three of my teeth seemed to have kinda melted.
2. I had cramps in the bottoms of my feet and my right butt cheek,…(not the left one, just the right)
3. Poop, pee, and vomit when all mixed together, do not actually smell as bad as one might think….
4. My left eye would not open…..
5. My right eye would not close…….
6. The lawnmower is now running perfectly…..seriously !!…I think our little session, must have cleared out some carbon or something, because it ran better than when it was new after that !!
7. My testicles are still smaller than average, but are now almost a foot long…….
8. I can turn on the TV in the game room, by farting while thinking of the number 4 …( I still don't understand this???)
Yes,…….that day changed my life forever….I now have a newfound respect for things. I appreciate the little things more, and now I always *triple-check* to make sure the fence is unplugged before I mow the grass.
The good news is,.. that if a burglar *does* try to come over the fence, I can clearly truly visualize, what my security system will do to him, and THAT gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling all over, which also reminds me, to triple check before I mow the grass !!!!..

The USA Was Created As A Republic — Not A Democracy

The Essence of Freedom is the Proper Limitation of Government.


The Founding Father's Created a Republic — Not a Democracy

Dave Schultz – 6/11/2010

The Roman Empire began  (as did the USA) and became great as a Republic – which means Ruled By Law. They then morphed (as did we) into a Democracy – which means Ruled By Majority. They ultimately became a Oligarchy (which means Ruled By An Elite Group) under Caesar, Nero, Caligula and their Congress — by giving them too much of the power the People had as a Republic.

We have done the same with the power we've freely given away to the Presidency, Congress, and the Supreme Court. This started years ago, and has progressed at an ever quicker pace. In the beginning the Federal Government was specifically limited by our Founding Fathers from having these powers they've taken from us under the guise of "protecting us".  The founding Fathers knew of the dangers of a Democracy always morphing into a Oligarcy. Our Freedoms have decreased dramatically and government is free to tax whatever they want, from whom they want — and spend it on whatever they want. We have no say in taxes or spending. We are moving towards a Cast System where the Government are the Lords and we the people are the serfs, working for the Government's pleasure.

There is a very big Difference between the Republic our Founders gave us — and the Democracy rewritten history makes us think they gave us. Please invest ten minutes of your life to watch the below video to learn about the different types of government, and their flaws. You care enough for ten minutes don't you? I'll bet you think you know all of this already, but I will bet that at the end of the video you will admit you learned something very valuable — that was not taught to you in High School Government or History.

 Please watch this very interesting History/Government lesson and pass it along. I promise you it is factual and non-partisan.
