.......HAND IN HAND.......





There were two different articles in the DAM news this morning...but one is entirely linked to the other...makes my red neck ass red..Follow the bouncing ball my friends..follow the bouncing ball...
DYNCORP FAULTED FOR IRAQ SPENDING...Inspecto
rs cites millions in discrepancies; firm defends actions..
by To
dd Robberson-staff writer-
A federal inspec
tor looking into the performance of DynCorp International said Tuesday that he had identified tens of millions of dollars worth of accounting discrepancies, missing weapons and unauthorized billings by the Dallas-area employer.
Stuart W. Bowen Jr., the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, criticized both the State Department and Virgin
ia-based DynCorp, for what he called lax accounting and monitoring procedures related to a camp-construction contract for police trainers in Iraq.
The contract was for 1,048 trailers and an Olympic-size swimming pool to
be built for police trainers in Baghdad and else-where in Iraq.
Mr. Bowen's report cited $43.8 million in State Department expend
itures for a camp that was never used by police trainers. It said DynCorp had billed the department for $4.2 million in unauthorized work related to the contract.
It added that the State Department "may have spent
another $36.4 million for weapons and equipment, including armored vehicles, body armor and communications equipment that cannot be accounted for."
A Dallas Morning News series in December, which was cited in Ms. Schakowsky's announcement Tuesday, identified potentially life threatening lapses involving DynCorp's management of weapons, armored vehicles and body armor in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The t
roubled stabilization and reconstruction effort, which has made private contractors the second-largest force in Iraq behind the U.S. military, has prompted members of Congress to seek a re-examination of the U.S. mission there.
Mr. Bowen's report said the State Department's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement had initiated its own investigation of DynCorp's billing practices in late 2005 and quoted an int
ernal department report as saying, "INL cannot determine if the bureau received what it paid for."


FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!

Second a
rticle...........Associated Press
SURVEY SAYS HUNDREDS OF GI'S LACKED CRUCIAL PROTECTIVE GEAR.

Armor absent at times in Iraq, Afghanistan.
Washington- Hundreds of U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have experienced shortages of key protective equipment including armored vehicles, roadside bomb countermeasures and communications gear, a Pentagon survey released Tuesday shows.?"
The Defense Department Inspector General's Office polled roughly 1,200 se
rvice members and found they weren't always adequately equipped for their missions. The troops were interviewed in Iraq and Afghanistan last May and June.
Those surveyed reported short-comings with vehicles outfitted with armor; "crew-served weapons," which are weapons it takes more than one person to handle, such as artillery or a large machine gun; electronic
countermeasure devices, such as equipment designed to foil roadside bombs by interfering with cellphone signals that may be used to detonate them; and communication equipment.
The survey found that those not getting needed gear include troops performing untr
aditional missions such as training, reconstruction, detainee operations and explosive ordnance disposal.
In some cases, they went ahead with the work anyway, used informal means to get what they needed or canceled or put off operations while waiting for equipment, the report summary said.
The report found the U.S. Central Command and the Army's internal equipment controls inadequate and recommends improvements.
Only a summary of the findings were made public; much of the report is classified.
Gee! I won
der why? I wonder how many of those soldiers shipped home in those coffins died because DynCorp pocketed the money supposed to be spent on weapons?...Wonder who they sold them too instead of them going to our soldiers?....
I have a lot more questions to ask, but these 2 articles have given me such a head ache, I'm afraid if I think about it much longer, my brain will explode...
Fuckme till I'm classified...

.......THE FOX IS IN THE HEN HOUSE.......





News from my Dallas Morning News....fuckity fuck fuck fuck!...
The Fox...is in the Hen house...oh, wait..it's the White House...
BUSH BOOSTS SWAY OVER PROTECTION AGENCIES

Washington....President Bush has signed a directive that gives the White House much greater control over the rules and policy statements that the government develops to protect public health, safety, the environment,(what's he going to do..? he is just now admitting that there might be such a thing as global warming) civil rights(tell that to all the folks that got left behind after Katrina blew through.)and privacy.(What fucking privacy?...They're listening in on our phone calls, read our mail and emails, have satellite's watching us in our sleep and know what we read at the library.)
In an executive order published last week in the Federal Register, Mr. Bush said each agency must have a regulatory policy office(one of HIS people...doh) run by a political appointee to supervise the development of rules and documents providing guidance to regulated industries. The White House will thus have a gatekeeper(tattletale, ass kissing jerkoff) in each agency to analyze the costs and the benefits of new rules and to make sure the agencie
s carry out the president's priorities.(His priorities are making bucks for him, his Daddy and his cronies)
This stren
gthens the hand of the White House in shaping rules that have , in the past, often been generated by civil servants and scientific experts.(we already knows what he thinks about scientists..they don't know anything...he knows it all...) It suggests that the administration still has ways to exert its power after the takeover of Congress by the Democrats.(remember folks...Impeachment isn't just for blow jobs)
The White House said the executive order was not meant to rein in any one agenc
y. But business executives and consumer advocates said the administration was particularly concerned about rules and guidance issued by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
In an
interview on Monday, Jeffrey Rosen, general counsel at the White House Office of Management and Budget, said, "This is a classic good-government measure that will make federal agencies more open and accountable."(If you believe this...I have some land to sell you in West, Texas that has oil on it..................It's called The Tiger Shop One Stop Gas Station.)
Business groups welcomed the executive order, saying it had the potential to reduce what they saw as the burden of federal regulations.(Yeah, they got tired of them fucking federal agencies telling them they were polluting, skinning the American people and fucking over the poor by them fat cat drug agencies.) Consumer, labor and environmental groups deno
unced it, saying it gave to much control to the White House and would hinder agencies efforts to protect the public. (where the hell is Superman when we really need him?)
Rep. Henry W
axman,D-Calif., chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said:"The executive order allows the political staff at the White House to dictate decisions on health and safety issues, even if the government's own impartial experts disagree. This is a terrible way to govern, but great news for special interests."(see..business cronies)
I don't know how to make this any plainer...We are going to be butt fucked by Bus
h...He has spent the last 6 years getting us used to being in the bend over position, swabbing us down with petroleum jelly and now...It's the big fucking...
Everything up till now has been foreplay..this...this my dear friends..is the big climax...get out your cigarettes my f
riends..he's going to give it to us good....
fuckme till.....oh ...wait...he already has....

anyone got a light?

.......START DIGGING ASSHOLES.......

IF YOU LIVE TO SEEK REVENGE, DIG A GRAVE FOR TWO. old Jewish proverb...

I have made a decision...I
am going to start bitching again...I like bitching...I like threating to kick people's asses..I like standing up on a soap box and yelling and screaming at people that I think are raving assholes and dipshits.I don't like taking the high road...I like it down here in the dirt, wressling with the 'stupids'....It doesn't even have anything to do with making me feel better...I just like it...so there!..Back your ass against the wall...here I come tits and all..
There
is no rhyme or reason to this list of bitching..just have a stack of articles I have pulled out of my DAM News...and going to start at the top and work my way down to the bottom...So...here goes..
NEW MOM..67, SAYS SHE TRICKED CLINIC ABOUT AGE.
O.K....in London a 67-year old woman who is believed to be the world's
oldest new mother told a British newspaper Sunday that she lied to a U.S. fertility clinic--saying she was 55--to get treatment. Carmela Bousada said in her first interview since she gave birth to twin boys Dec.29 that she sold her house in Spain to raise $59,000 to pay for in vitro fertilization at a California clinic. ...
Of all the stupid selfish people...What ego..To think that you are so important and your genes are so much better than anyone else's that you
have to give birth your own self..First of all she's too fucking old...Even if she lives 20 more years..which is doubtful...what kind of health is she going to be in to take care of them babies???? Where is the husband? Is there anyone around to help her take care of them after she croaks?...judas priest....Someone needs to smack that bitch..I'm up for the job..


Two different articles about a week apart..one says mercury in fish tested in West, points to industry.
Scientists looking for fish tainted by mercury found them in every fish and every river they sampled across the West, suggesting that in
dustrial pollution generated around the world is probably responsible for at least some of it. The survey of 2,707 fish randomly collected from 626 rivers represents the biggest regional sampling yet of mercury in fish in the west...
DDT levels still high off Los Angeles coast...Fish caught off Los Angeles County's coast still contain high levels of banned DDT decades after a manufacturer dumped tons of it into sewers, creating a toxic plume on the ocean floor...
Fuck!....no wonder we have such a rise in cancer and autism..fuckity fuc
k fuck fuck! Need I say more..? Someone needs to get to the Bush administration and get across to them..just cause them good ole boys are your fuck buddies...doesn't mean you should allow them to continue to pollute our waterways, air, and land...just for more money to line your already lined pockets...
Oh, I love this one.. the other day in the paper VP Cheney called critic's charges 'hogwash,' and said U.S. will finish the task in Iraq.
Vice President Dick Cheney said Wed. that it was 'hogwash' to suggest President Bush's credibility was on the line because of mistakes made in Iraq.(does this man live on another planet?)
Mr. Cheney acknowledged that the situation in Iraq is very unstable, but he said toppling Saddam Hussein was the right thing to do.(Yeah, how's that working for us so far..asshole)
The VP said passage of Senate resolution opposing Mr. Bush's decision to send
more troops to Iraq would not change the administrations new strategy in Iraq.
"The congress has control over the purse strings. They have the right, obviously, if they want, to cut off funding," Mr. Cheney said.
"But in terms of this effort, the president had made his decision. We've consulted extensively with them. We'll continue to consult with the Congress. But the fact of the matter is we need to get the job done."(in other words, it doesn't matter what you or the rest of the entire fucking planet want..we're doing what we wanna do..so fuckyou.) The VP said the biggest mistak
e the U.S. has made in the war was underestimating the psychological effect Mr. Hussein's regime had on Iraqis..(ya think?)
Today.....He's pissed at GOP Sen.Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, who accused the Bush administration of playing "a ping pong game with American lives" by sending more troops into Iraq."Let's say I believe in Ronald Reagan's 11th commandment:Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow republican," Mr. Cheney said. "But it's very hard sometimes to adhere to that where Chuck Hagel is involved."(you know their in big ass trouble if they are resorting to quoting Ronald McDonald Reagan).
In the interview,Mr. Cheney also said he doesn't spend any time worrying
about how the public or the news media view him. When pressed to react to criticism form people with whom he has worked, Mr. Cheney said: "Well, I'm vice president, and they're not."....(how many people immediately thought of Chevy Chase's 'I'm Chevy Chase and you're not?"...has as much credibility ...)
Well, whoopty fuckingdo..! What a pompous asshole...This is the sort of arrogance that you get from them...Them being the fucking republicans...I have the ball and we will either play the game I wanna play,the way I wanna play it, or I'm taking the ball and going home...
Give me strength...!...Dear Goddess...smite that asshole...
I wish I could have attended the peace march in Washington over the weekend...I have a feeling I would have been arrested...but it would have been worth it...
O. K...I'm done...but it ain't over...I will continue to rant and rave, scream and yell, cuss and throw things at my tv until them fuckers are out of the White House, out of control and give our country back to us... you money grubbing assholes....
fuckme till I'm out of ink..

ATHENS, TEXAS DECLARES WAR ON NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT



New Haven, Connecticut is fixing to get a croaker sack full of whup ass slapped upside their Yankee heads..Here's the sordid grisly tale. "In the early 1880's, Fletcher Davis, sold "meat sandwiches" at the town square, across from the court house. Everyone loved ole Fletcher's sandwiches, but one of his biggest fans was the town's most prominent family, the Murchisons.(Their descendants eventually became the original owners of the Dallas Cowboys.) After some time, the Murchisons paid to send Mr. Davis to the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904, where he unveiled the sandwich with a patty stacked with cucumber pickles, a blend of mayonnaise and mustard and a slice of Bermuda onion to the rest of the country. In 1984, Athens installed a commemorative marker at the spot where Mr. Davis peddled his sandwiches ...right across from the courthouse. The town also has an annual hamburger cook off, and as they say, the rest is history..It only makes sense that hamburgers would originate in Texas...We have beef coming out our ass...which is why our asses are as big as some cows..
Now this is where it gets ugly...for fucking years ole Bush has claimed Texas as home, when we all know
the asshole was born in New Haven, Connecticut...like I always say....'all hat and no cattle'...
Well, now New Haven must be pissed
because he won't claim them, so they are trying to say...THEY invented the hamburger..yeah, that place is crawling with cattle...They say they came up with the hamburger in 1900...bullfuckingshit I say...
This battle started when Rep. Betty Brown, R-Terrell, filed a bill in November that would declare Athens, "the Original Home Of The Hamburger."...Like to see the schmuck that votes against THAT bill..He'd have to move to New Haven.
Of course we invented the hamburger..just like we invented Chili..way back when...In San Antonio...(San 'Tone to ya'll) ..There used to be Chili sold
on every street corner..till finally they started putting up chili pot shaped restaurants everywhere..they even had Chili Queen contests and it was a really big deal..That is until they found out that most of the Chili Queens worked the streets...and not peddling chili either..if you get my drift...
I remember in H. Allen Smith's book on the Great Chili Confrontation that everyone remarked on how the Chili Pots looked like chamber pots...or as we called them...piss pots..
So here's what I have to say to all you Yankee's in New Haven..ya'll better back off, or we're pack up that little asshole down in Crawford and ship his Yankee ass right back to you...C.O.fucking D.

.......I HAVE CRS DISEASE.......

Can't remember shit...I forgot to tell you that I also am now the property of the Minnesota Golden Gophers...or at least that is what my t-shirt says..Maroon and gold...with a goofy looking gopher on the front...that was also in my care package from the Lakota Princess.... A Minnesota Golden Gophers T-shirt..I'm telling you..this is one cool t-shirt...can't wait to go show it off...Sorry I forgot to mention it Nancy, I had sat it aside to dig to the bottom of the box(I could smell them chocolate covered raisins) and forgot about it till I went to lay down on the couch and read my new book...I love it..I love all the gifts..'ya te hey?'(Navajo for how are you doing?)
See if I didn't have the computer at home, you all wouldn't be able to read about my activities minute by minute...life's been good to me and especially my friends...

..............FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES..............

I have had such a wonderful day....worked at the library this morning and fun with the kids...made 2 new kiddie friends...and got one of them to check out a book...yeah..!..I came home and read my paper, did my crossword puzzles...and took my blood sugar..it was 116..so I did good...I'm reading my new book and mentally flinching every time someone walks by the apt. out in the parking lot...(have to get used to them out there)...and then ...oh my Goddess, some one is knocking at the door...eeeeeek!...Oh,wow...it's a package from the Indian Princess Nancy...a care package...'cause she cares...Inside was a beautiful box with a panda on the top and inside is a pair of the loveliest earrings..a big fat white frog with red hearts all over him...with a tag that says I love you all over it....clutched in his little arms is a bunch of pamplet's about diabetes...lots of wonderful information..found out I was taking my blood sugar too early..2 hours after I eat..not one...see..learned something good already...and best of all...a baggie full of treats...organic dark chocolate covered raisins...I can't begin to tell you how tasty they are..oops, I hear them calling my name ...nummy nummy nummy!!!
I took a picture of my frog, panda and earrings along with a card I received from my Canadian buddy, ey, Ol Lady....
On the outside it says..'Stuff that gets on my nerves more than it should:slow people at the salad bar' and shows a woman picking over some lettuce and tomatoes..inside it says.."Holy crap! It's not a decorating contest...' and the woman reacting by tossing the salad everywhere...Other than the fact that holy crap(or holy shit) is my favorite expression...can't understand why she thought I would enjoy the card...haha..You know I loved it...So many thanks to you both..
Man I just can't eat one of those raisins...I don't think she meant me to eat them all at once, but if they make it through the day, it will take a miracle..or lightning to strike me dead...(I'm eating them so fast I know when I go to the bathroom tonight, they will ping when they hit the sides of the bowl...hows that for a visual..)
So I, as I like to say...made out like a bandito..si, I done good...
Thanks so much to my great friends ...for the card and the goodies..will light special candles for you...
Ok, I'm going to have to lock the raisins away...
fuckme till I 'm organic....

.......BLOGGERS REVENGE.......

Last night I wrote the funniest, smartest best post that I have ever written and blogger ate it..Well, the first part is a lie, but the second part is the truth...fucking blogger....sigh*..oh well, will try and reproduce it, but you know how that goes...here tis'..
Some folks wanted to know how I like my new apartment, and stuff...I love the new apartment, even if it does have shit brick gray carpet..There are certain things I am have to get used to..first the traffic..not the cars and buses kind of traffic..but the people walking around kind of traffic..At my old house, it was pretty isolated..and if I saw someone outside my window, they were coming to see me..here I see people all the time. Walking to the garbage, to get their mail, to visit other neighbors and doing the laundry...All these fucking people are walking around right outside my window..I like to keep the blinds open and one side pulled 1/2 way up so I can get sunshine(when we have it) and Annie can check out the world...Freaks me out seeing all those people out there...I think they are coming to see me...fuck!...I could stop the paranoid feelings by
shutting the blinds, but I won't because I like the sunshine...and to top it off, I am not used to the noises..not so much the ones outside but the ones coming from the heater and the refrigerator..Living in a house heated by gas, there was no noise..gas doesn't make noise..electric ac/heaters does...they turn off, they turn on, they run...noisy...and then the refrigerator I think is haunted..it makes weird moaning sounds..Annie will sit right in front of it and twist her head back and forth looking and listening to it make the moaning sounds..The lady that lived here before croaked..maybe she came back for her Ensure..This is two places I have moved into where the person that lived there had died.. That's about the only way you can get a place to live in West is for someone to die...You don't get measured for a coffin here, you get measured for a house...'looks like a 2-bed, 2-bath to me Anton.'...'ya, Orlan, but is she a detached garage? She's got to be a detached garage, I need me one of them detached garages.'...
Speaking of the dead...I was at the library the other day and the big conversation was about burials..to be cremated or not..and put in the ground if you have been cremated or have your ashes spread...Some little old lady was very very against cremation and being buried in a mausoleum..She said she had been to a cousin's funeral in Dallas and they put him in a mausoleum..she was very upset..said it reminded her of the post office ...said 'It looked just like one of them mail boxes at the post office and they just shoved him into one of them little slots..' This conversation about burials came from the little fliers that the 2 funeral homes in town pass out..When someone dies the funeral parlor they go to sends out a little flier to all the business's of West and it has their picture, age, where they died, when the viewing will be and when the funeral will be..They also have a website where you can leave messages for the family.
So when you go some place you automatically read the flier and if you knew them you are obligated to tell a story about them..if you didn't know them you probably knew some of their kin, which will do for a story..As in..I didn't know Mrs.Pustejovsky, but I went to school with her cousin Henry Zahurniak..you know the one that drank so much he hit ole Ray Mikeska's cow out on route 1831?..I love it when there is a flier out..get to learn all the dirt about their family..the expression 'never speak ill of the dead' hasn't made it to West yet..
Which reminds me of the two factor in West..There are two of everything...2 Funeral Homes, 2 Drug Stores, 2 grocery stores, 2 electrical repair shops, 2 Dollar Stores, 2-banks,2 hardware stores(well one is also a lumber co.)2 liquor stores, 2 auto-parts stores, and for every bar there is a church...It's very important in town that certain people go to the 'right establishment'...I of course go to all the wrong ones...I don't know which Funeral Parlor is the wrong one, but will make sure I pick it when I croak...
The weather has been beautiful the past few days and for the rest of the week and weekend we are promised more.. It's in the 60's and sun is shinning...life is good here in West, By Goddess, Texas...life is good..

...........RECEIVED THIS CARD ALMOST 20 YEARS AGO.......





I watched an ant climb a blade of grass this morning. When he reached the top, his weight bent the blade down to the ground....Then twisting his thorax with insectile precision, he grabbed hold of the next blade. In this manner, he traveled across the lawn, covering as much distance vertically as he did horizontally, which amused and delighted me.
And then, all at once, I had what is sometimes called an "epiphany," a
moment of heightened awareness in which everything becomes clear. Yes, hunched over that ant on my hands and knees, I suddenly knew what I had to do.................................


QUIT DRINKING BEFORE NOON....

Wednesday, January 24, 2007

.......ALL TOGETHER NOW.....REPEAT AFTER ME...

If you do not like what I have said...or what I think...please take note of the side bar...I don't give a fuck..! Got it?...To old..and way to set in my ways to do any changing now..Especially since Forest hasen't done anything to make me change my mind..That there are still enough of you dumbfucks out there still tooting his horn leads me to believe that the Goddess does have a sense of humor..She keeps dipshits like you around to give the rest of us something to poke fun at..
After all that he has done and you are still defending him makes me WANT to start drinking again...but then, it just shows how strong and determinded I am to stay sober that I haven't allowed what Forest and his 'cronies' have done to our country to set me on a gigantic drinking spree...and as my dear sweet dearly departed mother would say:'Fuckya.'

YUP.......HE'S STILL A DICKHEAD.....




I watched, just because I wanted something to bitch about..so here goes.....arghghghghghghhg!..That lying motherfucker...that stupid asshole..that ignorant dickhead...what the fuck? Does he think we are all retarded or smoking crack? The only enjoyment I got out of the speech was the rebuttal from Jim Webb from Virginia..and to you folks in Virginia I have this to say to you... "You lucky bastards."
wish we had
someone like that to represent us here in Texas...cause he whupped on ole Bush's ass...he was terrific...I knew Bush was fucked when Webb pulled out the picture of his Daddy and brought up his son...who is currently stationed in Iraq....He said that the President entered into the war..'recklessly'.....oh man...I was standing up and cheering...if I could whistle I would have...as it was I had to settle for a lot of hurrahs and yes, kick his assess... Wasn't it a wonderful thing to see a woman as speaker of the house..that was terrific...Made me proud to be a woman...About fucking time...Next...the White House...
Bush was his usual wormy little self..made me think of a snake oil salesman..trying to sell us his quick fix potion...give it a
chance..my ass...you're had more than you're share of chances...too many chances and all built on lies...and we have over 3,000 graves for to show for all your chances...you want another chance...???? Pack up your old kit bag, grab a gun..and haul your ass over there you're ownself...yank your head out of your ass dipshit..we are not bending over for that any more.. Ahhh, it was good to see him groveling and kissing ass...won't work forest...it just won't work...your happy days are long gone... fuckme till smoke blows out HIS ass...

WHAT THEY SAID...THEN WHAT I SAID...



By 2050, the Latino population will have tripled, the Census bureau projects.One in four Americans will be Hispanic by mid-century, twice the current ratio.
Hi
spanic women have the highest unmarried birthrate in the country--over three times that of whites and Asians, and nearly 11/2 times that of black women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Every 1,000 unmarried Hispanic women bore 92 children in 2003(the latest year for which date exist), compared with 28 children for unmaried white women, 22 for unmarried Asian women, and 66 for unmarried black women.
Forty-five percent of all Hispanic births occur outside of ma
rriage, compared with 24 percent for whites and 15 percent for Asians. Only the percentage for blacks-68 percent--is higher. But the black population is not going to triple over the next few decades.
The only bright news in this demographic disaster story concerns teen births. Overall teen childbearing in the U.S. declin
ed for the 12th year in a row in 2003, having dropped by more than a third since 1991. Yet even here, Hispanics remain a cause for concern. The rate of childbirth for teens from Mexico, part of the fastest -growing immigrant population in the U.S., greatly outstrips every other group.
To grasp the reality behind those numbers, you only need to tal
k to the people working on the front lines of family breakdown. Social workers in Southern California, the national epicenter for illegal Hispanic immigrants, are in despair over the epidemic of single parenting. Not only has illegitimacy become perfectly acceptable, they say, but so has the resort to welfare and social services to cope with it.
Dr. Ana Sanchez delivers babies at st. Joseph's Hospital in the city of Orange, Calif., many of them to Hispanic teenagers. To her dismay, they view having a child at their age as normal.But what is 'most alarming,' Dr. Sanc
hez says, is that the 'teens' parents view having babies outside of marriage as normal, too. A lot of the grandmothers are single as well; they never married, or they had successive partners. So the mom sends the message to her daughter that it's OK to have children out of wedlock."
Conservatives who support open borders are fond of invoking "Hispanic family values" as a benefit of unlimited Hispanic immigration. Marriage is clearly no longer one
of those family values. But other kinds of traditional Hispanic values have survived--not all of them necessarily ideal in a modern economy, however. One of them is the importance of having children early and often.
"It's almost a badge of honor for a young girl to have a baby," says Peggy Schulze of Chrysalis House, an adoption agency in Fresno. It is almost impossible to persuade young HIspanic mothers to give up a child for adoption, Ms. Schulze says. "The attitude is:'How could you give away your baby?' I don't know how to break through."

Jackie says:"Close your legs...take birth control if you can't keep your legs closed...." You're Catholic and the Pope doesn't want you to use birth control?...He doesn't want you to have sex when you're 14 either, but that didn't seem to slow you down any......"
fuck..we're losing the country to illegals who can't keep their legs toget
her...
fuckme..I use birth control...

He said: "Our troops in Iraq have fought bravely. They have done everything we have asked them to do. Where mistakes have been made, the responsibility rest with me." President Bush, in his live speech to the nation this past Thursday.

Jackie said: "No shit
you ignorant asshole...You fucked up not once but so many times, we have lost count...Ya, dumb fuck."

They said:There are 8 democrats running for President...

Jackie said: "Fuck...I'm throwing my bra into the ring...oops, sorry Barak..didn't mean to hit you in the eye."

fuckme until they stuff my box with dangling chads..

.......DON'T TELL ANYONE....BUT I'M A WUSSY.......

I have yet to listen to and sing along with the National Anthem and not be in tears by the time they say 'play ball.' I start to choke up when I hit the line 'O say does that star spangled banner yet wave..o'er the land of the free(I'm using crying to hard to sing right about here.) and the home of the brave?' It's plum embarrassing...what the fuck?...This coming from a person who during the Vietnam war would turn my back on the flag when they played the national anthem...I was so sick of the war and what it was doing to our country that I reacted by hating everything about our country..Lucky for me, I outgrew that really fast...But I am still sick at what the Bush administration is doing to us...fuck what they are doing to Iraq...what they are doing to us...you, me...everyone...well, not everyone...if you are one of Forest Gump's bidness cronies..you're loving every minute of it..
So, I'm still sick of the war and the Bush administration's stupid decisions..but instead of making me hate my country..it makes me love it all the more...Because our country and it's people need all the love we can give because most everyone else hates us...and that makes me sad..
we used to be loved, admired and envied..not any more.
maybe that's why I cry during the anthem...because we aren't the land of the free any more...just the brave....

..............SNATCH A BOOK..............

I have made up a list of books that might interest some of you..at least I hope so..

1. ASIMOV'S CHRONOLOGY OF SCIENCE AND DISCOVERY.
This book was a 'damaged' book..it has splashes of ink from the printing..no pages are damaged..just the outside and the back has been sorta warped..but not so bad it won't stand on it's own..the ink has stained some of the pages but nothing is covered over so that you can't read any part of the book...normally this book runs about $50 in good shape..so because of the condition it goes for $20 and you pay the postage..depending on where you live it will probably run about $10 as it's a big ass book..705 pages..The cover says 'How science has shaped the world and how the world has affected science from 4,000,000 B.C. to the present..

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY UDDER SON..SOONER

Happy birthday to my favorite Okie...

Sun: Capricorn/Aquarius Cusp


January 20th...
Your birthday shows you to be a persuasive and charming individual, practical and hardworking, yet sensitive.Born on the cusp, you also possess an Aquarian interest in people and show a keen understanding of relationships. Skill in working cooperatively with others can help you in your overall success. Your pragmatic approach to life suggests that you possess a strong sense of loyalty and are capable of endurance.The challenge you may be facing, however, is to keep the balance between your desire to fulfill your obligations and your need for freedom, spontaneity and pleasure..
With the sub-influence of your decanate ruler, Virgo, you are a methodical and careful worker who pays attention to detail. Although you retain a certain shyness or reserve, you have good communication skills and can go straight to the heart of a matter. With a touch of the perfectionist and critical skills, you want to do a job properly and can make precise and accurate observations. A sense of duty and control can make you dependable and skilled, but tightly controlled emotions can also lead to your becoming too serious, rigid, or stubborn.
With a love of beauty and a good sense of form, you may wish to develop your creative gifts through art, music, or writing. Your home is liable to be warm and attractive, as you possess good taste and enjoy luxury. Although money is important,you are willing to work hard to acquire it and need the security of long-term plans.
Until you reach the age of 30 your progressed Sun is in Aquarius, highlighting your individuality, desire for freedom, and group awareness.It may be necessary for you to express
your independence, and friends may be especially important to you. At age 31, as your progressed Sun moves into Pisces, there is a turning point that heightens your sense of vision and emphasizes the importance of needing to feel more in touch with your emotions. Another change at age 61, when your progressed Sun moves into Aries, accents a desire for self-assertion, more action and new beginnings. This may inspire you to take more leadership roles.
YOUR SECRET SELF
Your tough front often conceals your extreme inner sensitivity. Love and relationships are especially important to you, and you often have a desire to make other people happy. This can be expressed as a humanitarian caring or compassion for the feelings of others. At times, however, you may feel frustration and disappointment because you cannot relax and let go.You may have experienced instances of conditional love earlier in your life, where you have had to meet another's expectations before you received the love and affection you need. It is important, that in your desire to love and be loved you do not compromise too much of your true self or overcompensate by withdrawing and a protection mechanism.
In your desire for peace and harmony, you are usually willing to work hard to deal with the obstacles in your path.Through this you come to realize the significance of valuing yourself and trusting your feelings.
WORK AND VOCATION
Sociable and good at combining business and pleasure, you often accomplish more by working with other people. Usually you use your communication and diplomatic skill to persuade others to your way of thinking. Imaginative, entertaining and orginal, you like to use your humor and charm when doing business with others.Often astute adn caring, you can accomplish in the medical world and the healing profession. A firm approach to health and good business sense imply that you can also work as a teacher, counselor, and advisor. Alternatively, as a multi-talented individual with a need to be creative, you can put pen to paper and write or paint as well as compose music or make film.
NUMEROLOGY
Having a number 20 birthday, you are intuitive, adaptable, and understanding. Usually you benefit from cooperative activities where you can interact, share experiences, or learn from others.Often charming and gracious, you develop diplomatic skills and can move in different social circles with ease. You may, however, need to overcome a tendency to be hurt easily by the actions and criticism of others.Avoid an inclination to martyr yourself or to be mistrusting or self-seeking. The sub-influence of the number 1 month indicates that you are ambitious and determined, with a forceful character. Individual, innovative, and creative, you are courageous and have plenty of energy when you are inspired. Although friendly and charming, you may also need to learn that the world does not revolve around you. In relationships, you may need to balance your own wishes with the needs and desires of others. Nevertheless, when you learn to trust your inner feelings and have faith in your abilities, you can succeed by commercializing your artistic talents.
LOVE AND RELATIONSHIPS
Your natural charm and sociability indicate that you have a large circle of friends with whom you are generous and giving. Idealistic and romantic, you have a strong need for love, which suggests that the demonstration of affection can be very important to you. With your stoic strength, you can be a loyal and faithful friend and very protective of your family members.This means you are often willing to make sacrifices for those you love, but you may need to be careful not to play the martyr. Some people of this birth-date find close relationships with those of a different age group..

I got this from my "The Power of Birthdays, Stars and Numbers."

From what I gather from this....you are a great and wonderful person who works hard, likes a nice house, lots of good friends and fucks young girls...happy birthday...hope all your wishes come true..your udder mudder...

.......WEIRD SHIT I THINK ABOUT.......

I have spent a lot of time the past few days going through my books, figuring out what goes, what stays, what to do what to do....while digging through the books my mind wanders and weird shit pops into my head....I wonder...does James Brown still feel good...like I knew that he would..??? Does Kinky Friedman feel any guilt at all for serving up Texas to the republicans for another term because of his big ass ego to run for Governor?
What the fuck was I thinking
when I decided to use that ^ font?
What made me think I needed 25+ books on foreign language dictionaries...? Anyone need a dictionary in Greek, Portuguese,Vietnamese, Hungarian, Polish, Finnish,Russian, Japanese,
German, Italian, French, Mandarin Chinese, Arabic, Swedish, oh and another book on Greek and Mandarin Chinese...? I also have a book on Extinct Languages...that comes in handy on a regular basis..I have autobiography's on Truman, Hemingway, the Roosevelt's, Yukio Mishima, Duke Snider,Mickey Mantle,Roger Staubach,Jerry Kramer,and a book called 'About Three Bricks Shy of a Load
'..about the Pittsburgh Steelers..I have over 30 books on horoscopes, paranormal,astrology, and religion..I have books on wring for newspapers, fiction, non-fiction, and just writing in general..I have books on handwriting analysis and books on every country you can think of ..I have travel books, one I just found out is rare and worth some bucks...The Jerusalem Jesus Knew...Books by Shakespeare,Milton, Longfellow, Tennyson, and H. Allen Smith...sigh..
Think this weekend I will post a list of some of them and prices and see if anyone is interested in buying them...Have a great great book in not perfect condition.....Asimanov's Chronology of Science and Discovery.
A perfect condition goes for about $50...but mines not perfect...but what a book
...Books on movies, directors, Soap Operas, the Oscars, and a book on the Addams Family TV series...sigh* all...have to go...
Just no room in this apt. for all these books..My kids have let it be known that they don't want any more books...soo...will see what I can do to thin out the boxes..


'FROM THE ROCKIN' OF THE CRADLE TO THE ROLLING OF THE HEARSE, THE GOIN' UP WAS WORTH THE COMIN' DOWN.'
from "The Pilgrim" by Kris Kristofferson.

I read this in the paper today and not sure I know how I feel about it..T
he son of 'The Bip Bopper'....(to you young squirts, the Big Bopper was one of the three that died in that plane crash along with Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens..you know ..the day the music died.)
is going to have his daddy's grave dug up and have a forensicx anthropologist to try and answer some questions about how his daddy died in the crash...There has always been questions as they found a gun in the field after the crash and while the pilot, Buddy and Ritchie were found in or by the plane..The Big Bopper was found nearly 40 feet from the plane..Jay Richarson the son wants to know if maybe his father survived the crash and was going for help when he died....Well, what fucking difference does it make? It's not going to bring him back to life. I remember the day I heard about the crash and the death's of Buddy, Ritchie and the Bopper...I was sick with some sort of lung infection and living in Houston with my aunt Leola(the one that is 85 and still packs a gun) and it broke my heart..cried for days...So I'm not crazy about the fact that they are going to dig up the Bopper and bring all that back again..so sad...

Was going to post the lyrics to Chantilly Lace, the Big Bopper's big hit..but couldn't get it to post..rats..google them...
fuckme till I have a wiggle in my walk and a giggle in my talk...

..............HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALI..............



Happy birthday to Ali...one of my heroes...When he first came into the public eye I instantly thought he WAS the greatest...I liked him because he wasn't afraid to be himself, even if it pissed everyone off..and boy did it piss everyone off..I remember when he had his first fight with Liston, everyone wanted that (please excuse the language of the times)'uppity nigger to get his'....I on the other hand wanted him to show everyone just how uppity he could get..I lived in Roswell, New Mexico and worked at a Tastee Freeze and made a bet with the owner that Cassius Clay would kick Liston's ass...If Clay won I got a free Tastee Freeze ice cream cone every day(I loved them Tastee Freeze cones with all of my heart..and if Clay lost I would have to stay late and do all the clean up...Even after I left the job I would come in and get my free Tastee Freeze ice cream cone..damn they were good..I loved working at the Tastee Freeze...I worked with a bunch of misfits..one guy was so cowboy and country I still remember him to this day...something bad would happen and he would say "mercy"....and every time I said fuck his face would get red and he would dip his head and say 'mercy'....cracked me up...My boss was a gigantic asshole and was forever trying to get me to sleep with him...I told him 'not even for all the Tastee Freeze's in the world.'...While working there I had accidents with my tits every time I turned around..I leaned over the counter once and dipped my tit in some guys coffee...'mercy'....I was going out the door and stopped when some one called me for something and the door slammed on my tit...ouch...I made a fast turn once and swept the entire counter clean with my tits..knocked toothpicks, cups, glasses etc. right in the floor..My boss said he was getting extra insurance for 'tit damage'...
How did this post go from wishing Ali a happy birthday to my tits...?
By the time all my kids were born they were all Ali fans too...and when Ali lost the last fight, I was half drunk and crying like a baby..Mojo and I crawled into our huge bean bag and consoled each other...both of us crying..she kept saying..'he'll win the next one mom, I know he will.'...
I look at him now and it breaks my heart...He stayed in the ring just a little too long..and was cheated out of the best years of his life because he wouldn't go to Viet N
am and fight people that hadn't done anything to him...He was the greatest boxer in the world at the time, and there were still places he couldn't go because of his color/race...so didn't feel obligated to go fight for his country..I agreed with him..to bad the rest of the guys wouldn't go...wonder what would have happen if they all just said...'nope...not going..fuck you.'...
So...happy birthday Ali...as far as I'm concerned....you're still the greatest...
