HUMID, HOT, OVERCAST...it's springtime in Texas


Rocky is laying out in the yard on his back pretending he is dead so he can lure some of the birds to the yard and eat them...they are not gong for it...these birds have been coming here for 11 years to get fed..they are wise to the dead cat trick...They are also smart enough to work the base off of the bird feeder and dump all the seed on the ground
and not have to get it a little at a time..smart bastids...
I went to some garage sales and got some arts and crafts stuff..a brand new answering machine for $2.75...a huge bag full of material remnants for .25..haven't a clue what I will do with them..but hey, it was only a quarter... and a nearly brand new set of sheets for $1...a very beautiful ornate silver (not real silver, but heavy as hell) picture frame with a rose on the side for .25.
You would be very proud of me..they had a free puppy...he was soooo cute....cross between a german shepherd and a blue healer..but by the size of his feet he was going to be a big dog, and I am not going through that again..with dog trying to escape from the yard....but damn..he sure was cute...
Went to the bank and filled out paper work for my debit card...I love going to the bank...when I walk in there is a chorus of 'hi jackie's..'...every body is smiling and glad to see me...I bet..they own my ass....
I had started drinking dr.pepper again..instead of juices and decaffinated tea...and now I remember why I quit...all that damn caffine is making me jittery when I try to sleep and am not sleeping like I was..and I just detest the taste of dr.pepper with no caffine or sugar...why bother..so will go back to the decaffinated tea...fuckity fuck...
I am watching Jeopardy....I can kick ass the first round..but only soso on the second round..but sometimes they will have catagories of things I know about and just rock on through them...makes me think I am way smarter than I really am..I am your worse nightmare...a semi-literate redneck...
I would like to take this time to thank Babs for adding new blogsites to my blog...I am sooo grateful for her doing it for me..as I have found some new buddies.Mr. Shrift, Superwoman, Nitty Gritty New York(great pictures), Denise's new place and Danno...
Ohhh, I know the question to the final Jeopardy answer...yes.....nana nana boo boo...stick your head in doo doo...
Does it seem like I am kind of running on and not really saying anything? Well, there is a perfectly good reason.....if I stall long enough I won't have time to do laundry.....hehe...
Ok, I'm out of here..going to go find Jamie and take her to Bold Springs Baptist Church and get some of their great hamburgers....tata ya'll

50 years ago there was a bit of advice in the West News...'When a man points a gun at you, knock him down. Don't stop to look if it is loaded, but knock him down and don't be at all particular what you do it with. If there is to be a coroner's inquest, let it be over the other fellow..he won't be missed...

THANK THE GODDESS FOR FRIENDS

I received an email from a my friend Tara about a yahoo article...laughed my chubby ass off..Seems in the town of Fairfield, Conn they have a problem with a cat named Lewis..Lewis has 6 toes on each foot and each has a long claw on it..So far he has attacked and maimed about a half dozen people, biting and clawing..Also attacked the Avon Lady as she was getting out of her car(who among us hasen't wanted to do that at one time or another?) They have been forced to put a restraining order on ole Lewis..and he is under house arrest..The owner has been charged with failure to comply with a restraining order and reckless endangerment..
Hey Babs, and we thought we had some bad cats...even Rocky, on his worse day has never had a restraining order put on him..ahhh, that's funny...cat's..ya gotta love 'em..

It is raining in West, Texas..don't know how long it is going to last...it is Texas after all..ya just never can tell...I want to go to Waco and get glasses and do some once in a every blue moon shopping...talked to the girls last night and we are working their schedules so we can go see a movie..we haven't figured out what we want to see, but we first have to get a day or night when one or both aren't working..those are the two hardest working kids..Jamie is, I hope, broke up with her boyfriend Zac..he didn't get her anything for her birthday(nor for this past valentines)..and when she said "what?not even a card? you couldn't even write happy birthday on a fucking napkin?" he told her she was materialistic....I said my ass..he's a fucking tightwad and and a useless peice of shit boyfriend to boot and I am going to kick his mother fucking ass....She not only doesn't deserve this kind of teatment, no one deserves this kind of treatment...little prick...I'll put some Goddess whammy on his ass...every time he walks out of his door he will be looking around to see if I am there...which will be easy as he only lives 1/2 block from me...little fucker..will make him regret being born and will wish he was dead..cause I can and will wreck havoc on his lazy, no good peice of dirtbag ass....as you can see....I am miffed.....if Jamie even thinks about taking that fucker back I will spank her....I don't care if she is 17....will bip her till he has another birthday..On the other hand we have Jenny, who is Jackiesue's grandaughter...she got into a heated argument with her boyfriend Lance...Jenny's like me..she books no fools...and she want's someone that will not let her run over them...it's not that she wants to fight all the time..but she can't respect someone who will let her run all over them..and lance is a yes, honey...anything you say honey, kind of guy..she fucking hates that...so her last words on the subject to him was"Lance, you need to ball up.".....ahhh, that's my gal....

damn damn. The tv set I bought at yard sale was owned by a Spanish lady and she has the english to spanish translation on the screen...so every now and then it will scroll across the screen the Spanish translation...I thought I had fixed it but now the screen just shows black places where the translations would have been..so I know which shows she used to watch as it only comes up on certain ones..They lady died and they were selling all her stuff..so I either need a tv repairman or an exorcist...
The sun is coming out so maybe this means the rain is over for the day..will call and make an apt . with the eye doctor...he is very very popular..he is very good at his job, but he also is a very very attractive asian guy..don't know if he is korean, chinese..what ever...don't care..he's hot..
Ok, I have stalled long enough..I have to go to Waco...yuck..

300 MILLION LIBRARY FOR GEORGE BUSH

No this is not a joke..really they are going to build a George W. Bush Presidential Library. For 300 million dollars...no, really....they are...and this is the kicker...cities and universaries are fighting over the honor to have said library built there. This is no joke, so stop lauging...'cause it's not funny...Ok, it's a little funny....ok, ok, it's A LOT funny..
My mind is boggled...what are they going to put in his library? Books on how to be a Yali cheerleader? We know he READ one book....the one about the goat, that he read to the kids while he sat there in "shock and awe" as his aide whispered into his ear that the towers had been attacked by terrorist....A book on avoiding the last 6 months or so of your military service. Lets see, 'Cocaine, how to use it and not get caught"..Oh, and business books....at least two "How to fail in two or more business's"...and "Lessons Learned from My Failed Business's"(a very, very small book)..and mabye a book that tells you how to go from a failed business owner to owning a very small percentage of a baseball club, parlay that with help from Daddy's bidness friends into being governor to the ultimate scam....President Of The United States...I'm sure it will be full of books telling us how to give all them bidness cronies of his Daddy's very important jobs, whether they are qualified for them or not..who care's I'M PRESIDENT. Just think:"Six years ago he couldn't spell president ...now he are one.."
Oh, well....if Forest Gump had any self respect or pride he would tell them...no thanks...no Library...I'm not worthy of a Library....yeah, right...like that will ever happen..
As you may or may not know...Baylor University in Waco is in the run for the Library....so that is a good thing...no really...because if they do get the Library? HUHUHUH....I will be able to drive less than 20 miles and walk around with a sign that says "Thank you Goddess ......he's president no more," on one side and on the other side"fuckyou, you forest gump acting asshole." or words to that effect....Although I have a feeling after all the posts I have written about my feelings for ole Forest Gump....the powers that be are under direct orders to "shoot that bitch on sight"..

.......MY MOTTO.......

WHEN IN DANGER
WHEN IN DOUBT
RUN IN CIRCLES....
SCREAM AND SHOUT(repeat as many times as necessary)

Ok, you ready out there? There were so many ....many...stupid fucking articles in the paper..I just don't know where to start...But I will start with the one that made my ass the reddest...here 'tis.
(associated press)
NEIL BUSH'S FIRM TIED TO MOM'S GIFT.(now that's a fucking shocker)
BARBARA BUSH'S KATRINA DONATION SPECIFIED USE OF HIS SOFTWARE GOODS.
Houston.....Former first lady Barbara Bush gave relif money to a hurricane relief fund on the condition that it be spent to buy educational software from her son Neil Bush's company.
An aide to former President George Bush would not disclose the amount earmarked for purchases from Ignite Learning.
Since Mrs. Bush's gift, the Ignite Learning program has been given to eight public schools with high numbers of Hurricane katrine evacuees, the Hoston Cronicle reported.
"Mrs. Bush wanted to do something specifically for education and specifically for the thousands of students flooding into Houston schools." said Jean Becker, the former president's chief of staff.
Mrs. Bush chose to promote Ignite because she supports her son and has genuine enthusiasm for his company's program, Ms. Becker said.
Two years ago, the Houston school district board wrestled with conflict of interest concerns over the Ignite progam. Neil Bush had helped raise $115,000 for the district's philanthropic fund from donors who insisted the money be spent on his company's software.
The district accepted the donation and used them to pay half the costs of new Ignite software, about $10,000 per school.

Well......fuckme sideways......does this stink or what????? and no one raises an eye brow or a finger or makes known in any way....hey folks..this shit stinks..
and it just keeps on getting better..

LAWMAKERS GIFTS: NO DETAILS NEEDED
State ethics panel says legislators have to give descriptions..not amounts..
by Christy Hope (Austin Bureau)
Austin..The Texas Ethics Commission decided Friday that public officials who receive cash or other gifts don't have to disclose the value, stunning op-government advocates.
"This is absurd, dangerous and completely undermines the reform legislation," said Rep. Burnam, D-Fort Worth.
The seven commission members, appointed by the governor,(good hair perry)lieutenant governor and Hose speaker, wrestled with disclosure laws that compel public officails to report gifts over $250. The law calls for a description of the gift, and some commissioners said indicating simply "cash"----without an amount---- satisfies the statue.
"This ruling leaves a big enough loop-hole to drive an armored truck full of money through," said Craig McDonald, director of Texas for Public Justice, which advocates for public disclosure. "All you would have to say is 'a truck.'"
So basically what happened is....no a motherfucking...thing...they couldn't get 6 people to vote for a change... after all the talk about making it harder for lobbyist to buy votes......it is just the same...and you wonder why I want to get Kinky Friedman into the Governor's Mansion...Texas politics at its best....fuckme till I do the Texas Two Step..

Like I said..it just keeps getting better.

FEMA WON'T REOPEN 4 NO-BID KATRINA DEALS; POLITICS CHARGED....(No! You're kidding....dirty politics????? fuckity fuck fuck fuck)
Firms say contracts merit-based; review finds waste in three...
By Hope Yen ..(associated press)
Washington..Fema has broken its promise to reopen four multimillion-dollar no-bid contracts for Hurricane Katrina work,including three that federal auditors say wasted significant amounts of money.
Officials said they awarded the four contracts last Oct. to speed recovery efforts that might have been slowed by competive bidding. Some critics, however, suggested they were rewards for politically connected firms.
Acting FEMA Director R. David Paulison pledged last fall to rebid the contracts, which were awarded to Shaw Group Inc., Bechtel Corp., CH2M Hill Inc. and Fouor Corp. Later, the agency acknowledged the rebidding wouldn't happen until Feb.
This week, FEMA said the contracts wouldn't be rebid after all. In fact, they have been extended, in part because of good work performance, said Michael Widomske, spokesman for FEMA.
"They are continuing the work," Mr. Widomske said, and the agency is now focused on competive bids for disaster relief contracts for the next hurricane season beginning June 1. (in other words, bend over New Orleans, they are going to fuck you up the ass one more time)
An additional $1.5 billion in work promised to small businesses also has yet to be awarded.
A review by the Government Accountablity Office of 13 major contracts said las week the government had wasted millions of dollars,due mostly to poor planing by FEMA. Among the 13 were three of the four no-bid contracts for temporary housing, worth up to $500 million each, that went to three major firms with extensive government ties.(how many of you have seen the pictures on your tv of the acres of trailor's yet to be delivered to anyone).The fourth housing contractor, the Shaw Group, was not including in the audit.
"The Shaw Group's lobbyist, Joe Albaugh, is a former FEMA director and friend of President Bush's.(surprise....surprise....) Bechtel CEO Riley Bechtel served on Mr. Bush's Export Council from 2003-2004, and CH2M Hill Inc. and Flour Corp. have done extensive previous work for the government.(which means they are very very experienced in fucking the public)
The companies have denied political connections were a factor....

ok, there is just a ton of more shit just like this on every page, every newspaper, ever magazine, every fucking tv station except for Fox news....and it is like a sickness...greed is the new cancer....except it doesn't kill the host... the host takes your money, takes it home and worships it..I don't worry about getting the bird flu, getting breast cancer, aids, or even getting hit by a truck on I-fucking 35....the GREED CANCER will kill us all...They will have it all...and we will be on the streets with our hat in our hand and our ass in a sling..
If any of you are still here reading my rant...thanks.
I imagine there are many of you rolling your eyes and shaking your head, thinking "there the bitch goes again"....all I have to say to you...is......the Greed Cancer has you on its list..and you will be gobbled up along with the rest...unless...you get off your lazy asses and go vote them fucking leaches out of office and bring in some people who really do care...well, we are truly fucked....

Ok, I'm done...another day....another rant....

WELL, KISS MY ROSY REDNECK ASS..


I had all these plans for today and all it takes is one fuckyou to mess things up...I hit a few garage sales which was on my little yafta list...got a big tv for $25..works good..has a thin tiny line across the top which my tv has. and it is not near as big...got 3 books for $3...
1) The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky
2)Works of Charles Dickens with original illustrations by cruikshank, "Phiz," and others...big ole fat book
3)The Oath by Frank Peretti
so I did good there...
I thought I was going to get the tires put on the truck today and then was go to Waco and get my new glasses...well, they didn't have the 4 tires...(which will cost me $325, and that is labor, taxes etc.)So had to cancel my apt for glasses as I just didn't want to drive back to Waco on those tires...went yesterday and that's enough...so Monday ( I hope) I will get new tires..then go to Waco and get oil change, glasses and see about getting me a new bed....I have been sleeping well, but still wake up feeling like I have been run over by a semi......so have to do something..and some new pillows...
Now all I need to do is figure out how to get a credit card so I can start selling books on
ebay again....I did really well when I did it before and need to sell some of these books...some I had bought with the express reason of reselling them and making money on them...What I need to do is go thru them ..make a list, price them and get them ready to sell.
Yesterday when I went to the bank to get the loan for the tires, etc...I gave my little prepared talk about what I needed and why and from the moment I said what I needed Bernice was pullling out the papers and checking on the computer for my account, etc....nodding every now and then....finally I stopped talking and just looked at her....she was just a typing away....I said "Bernice, you would have given me the money if I said I was going to buy a pony, wouldn't you?"....she stopped typing...looked at me over her glasses and said:"Only if it was a very pretty pony.".....and went right back to typing....
ahhhhh, I love my little town...but now I HAVE to get my ass busy and start selling books, and find some other part time job...to make the loan payments ..ha
hmmm wonder if Thom will get me a credit card...won't be used for anything except for ebay as you have to have a credit card to open an account....fuckity fuck fuck fuck..
I think I will go to the car wash and wash the truck..or should I waste this beautiful day cleaning up the truck.......? I could go hit some more garage sales.....yeah...that's the ticket...more garage sales...... see ya'll later...I have a great long lenght scream fest at the crap I found in today's paper....so brace yourself.....

WEST COOKOFF DRAWS 93 TEAMS

The only draw back for the cookoff is the rain put a damper on the tractor pull...tooooo much mud. Proceeds from the cookoff go to purchase a pumper truck for our local fire dept. The pumper is being built by Westex Welding from West, Texas..So it was a big success, rain and all. 93 smokers pumping out that incredible aroma of beef, pork and chicken....oh boy...the town smelled like a big fat juicy brisket.
West Chamber of Commerce has found a place for The Trade Day sales. It will be held at the Rodeo grounds in one of the smaller amphi-theaters, plus there will be places to put up booths outdoors...In addition to the Arts and Crafts vendors, the chamber plans to have concessions serving hot dogs, soft drinks and chips..This could build up to be a pretty good deal for the city...trade days will bring people in for the arts and crafts, used shit booths, and then they can also check out our little antique shops, bakeries, resturants, etc...maybe we can fill up some of those empty stores with new business's.
There will be a benefit to raise money for hospital bills for a local child..fried chicken dinners and sausage plates will be sold, besides a silent auction and bake sale. It will be held at Tours Hall, which is a t-tiny town on the outskits of West...right before you get to Leroy.
Governor candidates to speak Friday on Trans Texas Corridor at Seaton Star Hall in Temple..Kinky will be there...hmmmm. that's today...opens at 5:30....don't think I will go..just to hard to travel. By the time I get there I will be in so much pain I won't be able to raise any hell..and by the time I get back to West I will be whimpering for a pain pill..and only have one left and saving it for something big.....Maybe cleaning the yard, leveling the house and cleaning up that damn living room..which no one lives in...it's da storage room.

There is going to be a guided tour of painted churches...The membership of Historic Waco Foundation's Earle-Napier-Kinnard House is sponsering a day trip to see the famous painted churches. Located in rural Fayette county between Houston and San Antonio, the churches feature authentic 19th century European style churches from Czech, German and other similar cultures in the country-side near Schulenburg. Nesteled in the rolling hills of small farming communities, the churches have some of the most beautifully painted and stenciled ceilings, delicately ornate altars, marbelized columns and lovely stained glass windows. From the outside, the churches look like many American country churches built in the late 1800's and early 1900's, with facades clad in white frame siding or stone, arched windows and lone steeples reaching up into the Texas sky. However when you enter the churches one finds not a simple wooden interior but elaborate faux-finished interiors painted in bright colors, gold leaf and finely fitted woodwork, all the work of intinerant painters. Cost for the trip is $69,which includes transportation, continental breakfast, tour fees, graatuities for driver and guide and snacks on the return trip. Wow.............is that cool or what?
West Lady Trojans win 2 in District 8-aaa softball and the boys won two in non-district games.The West Trojan lifters are heading to a state meet...
Holy shit...ops...anyhow there is a picture in the paper of storm damage..high winds caused damage to the restrooms at the West Fair Grounds Sunday night when it passed through the city. The bathrooms are cinder block and pretty damn sturdy..but stand out in open so were not protected from the wind...ripped the roofs right off them suckers and ripped some of the bricks out too....damn...
Blue Bell and Dr. Pepper are on sale again at both grocery stores....Get thee behind my fat thighs Satan.
Lots of garage sales this week end...If it doesn't rain I might check out a few of them....
Land and houses are still cheap...er inexpensive...and Jupe Mills is still looking for someone to drive their fork lift....if it stays in paper another week, I may apply for the job..I can drive a fork lift..
Ok, now for the news that didn't hit the paper....heeheeh.....I got email from my friend Patsy who does the bookkeeping at Community Grocery Store...she is the one that lost her husband last summer...My other friend David....and he was ill for a long .....long...long...time...get my drift?..she is also good friends with my best friend David O....who has a 'fuck buddy' right now...but Patsy and I don't like her as she has been down on everything but the Titanic......nasty girl...judas priest she even slept with Pat. A. and he is short, bald, fat and has fleas..anyhow....the email from Patsy said something to the effect that if my friend haden't gone home when he had (they were all at the all night resturant eating eggs to kill their drunk) she would have given him one...then another email saying...no .no that's just wrong...
heeehee..so I go to the store next am and say..oh kay...spill..you know you want to ...so basically they were all up at Coyote Bob's(ran by the two broke back cowboys) and were drunk...went to resturant and were having goofy drunk fun time..and David left and she said if he had come by her house(she tried to call him, but so drunk coundn't dial the phone..and when she did get thru she kept saying..:"fuck you".....)she would have fucked his brains out...I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes and hanging on to her office door...I said..does he know what you wanted...and she said no she didn't think so....so I have decided this calls for ole Jackiesue to do what she does best.....meddle..so tonight before he gets in touch with 'old hide' to go out..I am going to call him and tell him what the dealie is and for him to go throw Patsy a mercy fuck...THAT'S what friends are for....
The only thing I don't understand is why a person would spend $20-$30 to get good and drunk.then go and spend $5 on an egg special to kill it........I never did get that....I would go with my friends and sit there nursing whiskey in my tea cup while they ate eggs and pancakes or steak and eggs...they would say.."Jackie, don't you want to eat?" and I would say:"Fuck no.....I paid good money for this drunk and I am taking in home with me and put it to bed."...buncha wussies..
so that is all the news there is...from lil ole West, Texas..........

LIBRARY AND USED SHIT STORE FINDS

Hooooooboy....Jackiesue made out like a second story man...Found a book for sale at library for $2...Chief Justice a biogrphy of Earl Warren by Ed Cray......coooool.....At the Used Shit Store I found a paper back version of To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee...Will reread it and give it to Jenny. Also found a ?????? quality paper book ..not sure why I got it...only a quarter ..anyhow..it is Gehenna by Paul Thigpen...it is a continuation of Dante's inferno...a guy named Thomas Travis ends up falling headlong into a tortured realm of fire and ice, in an abandoned building...the place is Gehenna. I guess for .25 it is worth a read..I also found a 2006 I love Lucy Calendar for $1....have no need for it, but figure the pictures might be fun to put in frames..or maybe one of you in blogville is a lucy fan and would want it...Picked up a pair of new canvas shoes for $2, and 4 of the prettiest blue glasses..but they look like glass mugs..the color blue is so pretty..thought I would use them as flower pots for tulips and put them on the porch..they were .25 each..also got some pillow cases...25 each...put them on old pilllows for Rocky to sleep on when he naps on the porch.....I stick them in old boxes and baskets and he lolls around in them like a pasha. (LSU is playing DUKE).
Now..the library books...(by the way..ole Henrietta managed to get her little dig to me when I brought back Cold Skin. I was telling her how weird it was....not a bad weird, but a good weird...and she said.."Well, guess who checked it for the library..". I said, "I know, I did...and I'm glad, it's a great book..it's just weird.."...she smirked..and said"I just didn't want you to think I bought a 'weird book' for the library....".......(the name I called her in my head is a name I got from a great joke 1,000 years ago...in my head I called her a crunt.)ask me about the joke sometime...huhu....
The books..the books..
1)....the Pale Horseman by Bernard Cornwell....about King Alfred the Great.(late 9th century)
2)The Witness by Dee Henderson....ahhhhhhhh fuck!! I just read the back and it is one of those Christian mystery book..where every thing works out thanks to God...
well, fuck..I'm sure the Goddess will have something to say about that..
3)Gone by Lisa Gardner..a mystery....I really like Lisa Gardner...fast easy reads
4)Lost by Michael Robotham..another mystery....I love mysteries
5)The Last Templar by Raymond Khoury..one of those books that has been spawned by Dan Brown's the Da Vinci Code.....(man, is he getting his ass and reputation dragged through the British courts....)
6) Wild Animus by Rich Shapero....I'm not sure what this one is about....but liked the look of the cover...does that make sense.???
7)and because I listen to my friends...Robert A. Heinlein's The Moon is A Harsh Mistress...
and said friend will be glad to know..that Mrs. Henrietta didn't just get this from another library...she actually bought it for our library..and that really makes me feel good..
Did you know that they named a cracter on the moon for Robert A. Heinlein? Its diameter is approximately 83 kilometers or 52 miles. It is officially named the Heinlein Crater. I would like to have a star named after me...or a crater on the moon...that would be nice...or a back country road lined with blue bonnets...the Jackiesue Blue Bonnet Lane.....which would cross paths with the Dr.Pepper Road and Rocky Road Blue Bell Path. It would dead end into The Road To Nowhere..ok, going to read my West Newspaper...via con goddess...

JACKIESUE'S SLANTED VIEW ON THE NEWS

Remember the guy in Afghanistand that was going to be killed because he switched from Muslim to Christianity? Good news....they probably won't behead him because they have decided ...................he's nuts..................So the Kabul government is seeking to advert an international confrontation without giving ground on Islamic law. The best way to do that is to decide that the guy is mentally unstable and unfit to stand trial...
The religious views and faiths of the people of these Islamic countries is not going to go away just because the Americans say so...We can't even straighten out the problems with our own relgious groups ...how are we going to fix it for a bunch of people that have been struggling with these problems for thousands of years....To hear ole forest tell it...it's just a matter of years and everything will be peachy keen and hunky dory....yeah......right...
but not in is presidency....the fucker actually said it will all be ok and work out(the war), but it won't happen during his presidency.....gee, think we can do something to assure that....? Like maybe, get him impeached?

Some lovely good news is that we now have a goup of nominees running for different offices in congress and they have dubbed themselves the Fighting Democrats. They are soldiers that have fought in Iraq and Afghanistand. Of the 10 veterans of the current candidates for Congress, all but one of them are Democrats. The Fighting Democrats, contend their battlefield experience will allow them to critize the war without being written off as naive and weak on defense...Ms. Duckworth narrowly won the Democratic nomination for Congress in a primary race Tuesday for the House seat held by Republican Rep. Henry Hyde, who is retiring after 32 years..Tammy Duckworth is a former Army helicopter pilot who lost both legs in a gernade attack in Iraq. In November, Ms. Duckworth will face Sen. Peter Roskam, who drew support from VP Dick Cheney, who in a fund raiser brought in $200,000. This is in Illinois..so all you people in Illinois...get out and vote for Ms. Dulock...get them Republicans out of office.....

Im on a downer.....Larry Allen, the last remaining player of the Troy, Emmit, Irving Super Bowl era...is gone...Let go...The Cowboys didn't want to pay him the $1million he was due to get for this year...Gee, you think paying the $25 to Terrell'theasshole' Owens had something to do with it???? fuckers..

For all you bloggers who are suffering from depression..abc world news had an interesting spot on medication for people with depression. Can check it out on
wnt.abcnews.com
on the right is a place to click on to see the video ...

Ok, on my latest reading spree.....I read a book that is just the weirdest fucking book...I am not sure if it is a good weird or a weird weird....just blew me away...It is COLD SKIN, by Albert Sanchez Pinol.......it is translated from Spanish to English....I will give you an idea of what it is about...It starts with a guy on ship going to some tiny island on the edge of the Antartic Circle after WWI. He will be relieving a man who has been there for a year and he will be there for a year...he will be assuming the post of weather official....that is all I will say except he finds a deserted cabin, a lighthouse, and a mysterious castaway....then darkness..................hooooboy....it is only182 pages long, but it is the weirdest 182 pages of reading I have ever ever read......even now that I have finished reading it...I don't know what to make of it...trust me on this one......it'as a yafta...you have to read it......

It is bill paying day......have to run errands, go to the library, pay bills, check snail mail, get some packages ready to mail out..get some stamps, get west news and get ready to go to laundry....ickypoo... see ya'll later.......

ANOTHER YELLOWDOG GRANNY RANT (aka forest gump is an asshole..stilll)


"THE TRUTH IS INCONTROVERTIBLE. MALICE MAY ATTACK IT, IGNORANCE MAY DERIDE IT, BUT IN THE END, THERE IT IS."....WINSTON CHURCHILL...
don't you wonder what great leaders like Churchill and others would have thought of Forest Gump's WIDE WORLD OF FUCKUPS...
These are little clips of my favorite part of the paper...they are t-tiny small little articles in the DAMN NEWS, and I have to hunt them down but they are worth it and are the jewels of the paper..here 'tis..

"IF THIS IS NOT CIVIL WAR, THEN GOD KNOWS WHAT CIVIL WAR IS."..AYAD ALLAWL, IRAQ'S FORMER INTERIM PRIME MINISTER.....(WONDER WHY HE DIDN'T SAY THEN ALLAH KNOWS WHAT CIVIL WAR IS????????)...this was followed by a statement from Forest Gump saying he disagreed, yadda yadda yadda....this statement was followed by Jackiesue's statement of "you lying fucker."

"TEHRAN HAS BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR AT LEAST SOME OF THE INCREASING LETHALITY OF ANTI-COALITION ATTACKS BY PROVIDING SHIA MILITIA WITH THE CAPABILITY TO BUILD IMPROVISED ESPLOSIVE DEVICES IN IRAQ."...President George W. Bush, in a speech to the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (congessional Quartely transcript, March 13.)
"I DO NOT, SIR."...Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Peter Pace, asked by a reporter whether he had evidence to back up the president's claim....(Reuters, March 14)
This was followed up by a statement given by Jackiesue where she says"of course not assholes..cause he is a fucking liar and you can't believe any fucking thing he says...cause he lies...he fucking lies...."at this point Jackiesue was forced to take her blood pressure meds as her face was as red as a baboon's ass....

BUSH CALLS FOR FEDERAL REGULATION OF PLANT SECURITY....
(this will make your blood boil(it did mine) and your head throb to the point of explosion..(it did mine....)

WASHINGTON..THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION CALLED TUESDAY FOR FEDERAL REGULATION OF SECURITY AT CHEMICAL PLANTS BUT WOULD LARGELY LET THE INDUSTRY DECIDE HOW STIFF PROTECTION SHOULD BE AND LEAVE INSPECTIONS TO PRIVATE AUDITORS. CRITICS QUICKLY LABELED THE PROPOSAL OUTLINED BY HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY MICHAEL CHERTOFF AS TOOTHLESS...

Excuse the fuck out of me....toothless....Rocky has no fang teeth and he's not THAT toothless....That's like me saying......"Im giving up Blue Bell Ice Cream" and then giving me the keys to the fucking Blue Bell Ice Cream Plant....Then telling me I get to decide how I should be punished and how much the fine should be....."Oh, let me think for a second.......you put me in charge......I ate 109 gallons of Rocky Road.....so in punishment ....lets see....hmmmmmmmmm...I fine me 1 gallon of Banana Split every week, for a year...or until I'm so fat I can't lift my head from inside the gallon of ice cream...
THAT'S TOOTHLESS....you simple minded slugs of humanity...fuckity fuck fuck....FUCK....

There was another article about how VP Cheney said there was no reason to fire any one or make any changes in staff resulting from all the huge fuckups(fuckups my word) perpertrated by the Forest Gump Administration(Forest Gump mine too)...yeah, right....it's just too......too....at fuckit....you get the drift...

But you know what really really just blew my little redneck head off my little redneck neck?????(my ass may be grande..but head and neck are not).....the article that tells about how a man in Kabul, Afghanistan(you remember that place doncha?..where they have elected a government and have democracy????)...is being prosecuted in a Kabul court and could be sentenced to death on a charge of converting from Islam to Christianity, a crime under this country's Islamic Laws, a judge said Sunday. The trial is believed to be a first of its kind and highlights a struggle between religious conservatives and reformists over what shape Islam should take here four years after the ouster of the Islamic fundamentalist Taliban regime..Mr. Rahman is in dention and can't be interviewed....but if found guilty.........the newly elected government.....will kill him.....
How do you think he feels about the democracy that you brought to his country now...Forest aka Flaming Asshole Gump...?????
I have to go now...I know if I keep dwelling on this I may go balistic and Goddess only knows what I am capable of doing......like kick someones stupid ass...? rip off their heads and shit down their necks?BIP THEM INTO THE 22ND CENTURY???????? oh man....I need a Dublin Dr. Perpperand a bowl of Blue Bell...any flavor.....
