Donors Wanted! No questions asked?

May 22, 2015

Once upon a time, Jim Bakker pleaded with devout Christians over television to “Praise the Lord!” PTL broadcasts were a combination of mediocre musical entertainment, tear filled pleas to give by deceased Tammy Fay Bakker, and get lifetime timeshares at Heritage USA development by PTL.

Give more so Jim Bakker can get a Rolex!

Give more so Jim Bakker can get a Rolex!

Now we are taking part in another fairy tale! Clinton Foundation is located at 1271 Avenue of the Americas on the 42nd floor in New York city. I miss the hokey pleading and praying for donation of PTL. They went off the air in 1989 when they used up their donated funds on make up for Tammy Fay. Why can’t “Slick Willy” get on television to bang the drum for donations? How about a timeshare to one of the Clinton mansions? We need some entertainment value from our chiselers and bible thumpers.

The foundation will save our environment, and just makes everybody think Africa needs the white man to save them poor natives. Some of the foundation donors rape the earth and use people for personal profit. These philanthropic donors expect doors to open and assistance on their goals of conquest with Clinton influence. Give a call to 212-348-8882 to find out how much of your donation gets wasted on overhead and vacations.

“Slick Willy” with hill billy Hillary want your donations!

Get a dog to stay alive!

May 21, 2015

Evidence shared on the brutal murders in Maryland is sad and sick. A family and a housekeeper were murdered in a robbery. The details shared are disturbing and sickening to put myself in the father’s shoes as his family is held captive, tortured, and murdered. One glaring omission in too many violent crime scenes is that there was no dog present.

I accept the problems and responsibilities that are part of the package in owning a couple of dogs. The benefits are worth more than the trouble and cost. My dogs are not attack dogs, but they instinctively are on alert to check anyone coming on our property. Everyone in the area knows we have dogs because they can hear my coon hound every day from a half mile away. No deranged idiot wanting to rob us can get into our house without a struggle. I have my shillelagh on a hook next to the leashes by the front door. It is handy for walking, and breaking bones.

The nightmare of an idiot barging into your home can happen. It is less likely to happen with some healthy dogs you love, and they love you. Burglar alarms and panic buttons are prudent precautions. My preference is to deter anyone wanting to rob us as easy pickings. We enjoy our dogs, and love them. They love us, and they are vigilant by nature. The absence of dogs in this Maryland house was one less defense barrier. Even a deranged psychopath is smart enough to avoid getting attacked by dogs.

So grab your shillelagh and get your couple of dogs on leash to walk around your neighborhood. It is good exercise and fair warning to any lazy thieves.

Our dogs are important.

Our dogs are important.

Auto safety rules gave us 10 years of mayhem!

May 20, 2015

Federal regulations and rules for automobile safety are expensive and extensive. However, supervision and investigation by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration under the Department of Transportation has been slow and disorganized on major problems.

Mark Rosekind of NHTSA with Anthony Foxx of DOT in spot light.

Mark Rosekind of NHTSA with Anthony Foxx of DOT in spot light.

The ignition switch problem with GM cars had accidents and fatalities over a time span of 10 years that was investigated after public out cries from families of victims. The exploding air bags with Japanese Takata equipment was known with 10 years of problems. However, action did not happen until it made the news.

We all know that 10 years of faulty automobiles cannot be repaired quickly. The glacier speed of NHTSA and DOT allowed death and mayhem to continue for 10 years. Now, we can feel “safe” with federal protection oversight of automobiles. Informing everyone that their vehicle is recalled is the 1st step. Approving the replacement air bag and installing this replacement in 34 million vehicles will take 5 years. A lot of airbags can pop open and kill or maim many more during recall.

I grew up driving in cars with solid steel dash boards, and no seat belts. Our DOT set specifications for airbags that make them more dangerous. The auto industry engineers wanted to set air bags with slightly slower rates of expansion with lower amounts of explosive. Federal pencil pushers insisted on the bomb being more explosive.

Federal supervision is great at making rules. Federal supervision is not working at protecting us after making rules. 10 years is the new standard for federal response. Hope we all can wait 10 years for every problem.

Would you have invaded Iraq?

May 18, 2015

It seems everyone in commercial new media has only one question. “Knowing what you know today, would you invade Iraq?” I do not know why this is the question? I am not a candidate for any office but I know what is obvious.

I would never have invaded Iraq. In case anyone wonders why, let me state the main reason. I treasure the lives of our military. They risk their lives to defend and protect the U.S.A. in battle and difficult circumstances. We let Iraq sink into the hands of those vowing to kill us. Iraq had a paper army with guys looking to make money, but run from battle. We threw out the professional soldiers of Iraq as if they caught the plague from Saddam Hussein. All of our military died for nothing in Iraq.

This is not funny. This is not something we can pretend did not happen. Those lost and wounded had their sacrifice thrown into the garbage heap. This Viet Nam type of “loss” is all in the hands of our executive branch of our government. Our failed inept diplomacy reflects the weakness and cowardice in our executive branch. Our military were brave and paid the ultimate sacrifice for a retreat from Iraq.

This question is dumb of course, because it will not bring back our dead. However, I have the question now. Do our allies expect our leadership to have any courage? We are forecasting now that the “Junior varsity team” of ISIS or ISIL or DASH or whatever damn name we dream up cannot be conquered without 30 years! That is so dumb. This is the same crew that called them JV. Now the terrorists cannot be conquered by the USA and allies without 30 years of warfare and more death? I do not trust our leadership. I do not believe the excuses from our leadership. I am glad my son came back from Iraq and is no longer in the army to serve under this leadership.

We should have never sent our military into Iraq. We need to wait for a leader to take office in the U.S.A. for facing up to the terrorists and plans of conquest threatening our allies. Drone attacks and targeted murders by special forces do not stop terrorism or conquest. Only armies stop enemies on the march for conquest. General Grant from the civil war understood that war is bloody and brutal. The best plan is to swiftly attack and defeat the opposing forces. This reduces the blood shed by not fighting for 30 years.

General Grant did not rely on only brute force to win. He used telegraph wires to pass scouting information ahead of the battle. He did use lethal swift attacks without excuses for weather, terrain, or being outnumbered. He drank too much, was slovenly in dress, and smoked too much. He would never be chosen today. Our rules are to look good and politically correct. Our rules are not to win.

Lincoln need to end the war.  He promoted a warrior to win.

Lincoln need to end the war. He promoted a warrior to win.

I would never have invaded Iraq. Our motto now is we want to lose. We want to wallow in our guilt. We do not celebrate warriors who kill our enemies. We do not want to offend our enemies. Only evil people kill enemies. We prefer to celebrate deserters and retreat.

NBC reports religion poll good for Democrats?

May 17, 2015

Meet the Press had a “nerd segment” by chief nerd Chuck Todd. It was not his analysis work but he got to read a script based on polling analysis by Dante Chinni. The poll published in July of 2014 by Pew Research identified 70% of the USA population connects with Christian beliefs. There was a category “none” on beliefs that had 22.8%. The Chuck Todd report ignored Muslim & Jewish segments of the USA. Pew Research did cover all segments in their report.

According to Chuck Todd, this report gives Democrats more strength because the “none” people voted for Obama as president. Why did NBC ignore the Muslims and Jews? The “none” people are younger voters. More importantly the question is why did NBC dredge up as a “news” item the Pew Research report from July of 2014? The punch line of this Chuck Todd segment was that this report raised problems for Republicans. NBC always finds problems for Republicans. Plus NBC creates fake problems for Republicans, such as AMTRAK funding.

In this same program of May 17 was an assertion by Chuck Todd that Republicans do not want to add funding of heavy Democrat areas that are majority of AMTRAK riders. This analysis is so stupid it is amazing. East coast and West coast population is mostly Democrat so Republicans will not properly fund AMTRAK with mostly Democrat riders?

Chuck Todd has no dynamic personality. His lack of insight and mediocre communication skills weakens the franchise of Meet the Press.

ABC news interrogator George

May 15, 2015
Political hack now a media puppet for propaganda

Political hack now a media puppet for propaganda

ABC “news” man George Stephanopoulos donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation. George said he loves poor children by donating money to this Clinton Foundation. Can anyone explain how much does this foundation really spend on charitable works? George will never bother asking or investigating this foundation to demand the answers. Even Bill Clinton explained that he doesn’t know much about the foundation that was started by him and Hillary. He just works there, yuk, yuk, yuk?

So George interrogated and grilled the author of Clinton Cash, Peter Schweizer. He was bellicose and irate that Peter dared to publish a book that was based on speculation smearing Hillary. Did not George as the moderator of Republican debates, demand Romney to defend why Republicans were planning to prohibit birth control. Romney seemed confused because there was no plan to prohibit birth control. Romney’s confusion was just a confirmation to Stephanopoulos that a nefarious plot was somewhere out there in hidden Republican bunkers.

So the news segment did not present any new information or insights, because George wasted time on cross examination speeches that did not allow the author time to talk. George is now in hiding from his own spotlight of conflict of interest. He is not worth the time and attention he is getting.

Did Obama scalp Indian princess Warren?

May 13, 2015

We recognize the mud wrestling in politics is entertaining. Our president slammed Elizabeth Warren into the mud pit recently. The Democrats are blocking approval in the Senate for Obama to proceed with a Pacific Trade deal he is negotiating. (God help us!)

“Elizabeth is a politician, you know, like everybody else.” Declared our impartial and imperial president. Of course Obama is above the mud slinging and back stabbing of politics now. Why? Because he is not running for office. All of his time is occupied fund raising for his Narcissus Foundation. He loves himself, and wants to let the whole world know how lovable he really is!

The “politician” label connects Warren to choosing a position for positive polling on her popularity with socialists and communists. This Pacific Trade deal might create more jobs than the Keystone Pipeline bill Obama killed. It was even more hysterical to see the Democrats bitch about the “politician” label as evil and sexist attack on Indian Princess Warren. Of course nobody is a politician in the Washington elite of federal government.

In happier times before Obama slapped Warren with POLITICIAN label.

Muslim leaders avoid meeting our president

May 11, 2015

We got snookered by our fearless leader. President Obama campaigned, and made speeches on how the USA had a president that was sensitive and connected to the Muslim countries. He implied that he was the president to unite and connect with Muslim countries. He has failed and insulted our Muslim leaders over his presidency.

There is a Gulf Nations conference that was to give our “look at me everybody” president another media spot light. More leaders are canceling to meet and those canceling are the major powers. Will the commercial news media pretend this means nothing? What is the point of pretending there is a consensus of support on the United States policies in the Gulf region? This is all a massive “snow job” by our president.

Gulf Cooperation Council of Muslim nations of the region have 6 leaders. Do not hold your breath for all of them to show up to the Obama public relations event. The one problem listed at top of reasons by Gulf partners is that nobody knows Obama. He just shows up and leaves after the pictures and his speech is over. Nobody knows him. He loves selfies, YouTube video, and waving to photographers. He does not bother to spend personal time to get to know our allies. The Gulf leaders do not know who our president really is. Welcome to the club. Nobody in the USA knows who our president really is.

So the conference is all show. He is a “confidence man” that appears to be sincere and involved, while planning his next vacation or golfing trip. Nobody knows our president, and nobody cares at this point.

We love selfies!  What me worry?

We love selfies! What me worry?

Congratulations to USA starting nuclear arms race!

May 8, 2015

Our president is very pleased with the “framework” Iran has accepted for a potential “agreement” to limit nuclear armament. Somehow, the countries that neighbor Iran do not expect things to get better. Saudi Arabia recognizes that a weak framework will collapse and kill them. Our president will be gone fund raising for his Obama Narcissus Foundation. Saudi Arabia cannot rely upon the USA at this point.

The annual arms bazaar in Yaba Daba Doo has Saudi Arabia again spending record amounts to add to armaments. This confirms they have no trust in the USA as a reliable partner in the many alliances and defense pacts agreed upon in previous presidencies.

The legacy of the inept and indecisive foreign policy of Obama is a nuclear arms race in the Middle East because nobody trusts the USA. We do find it funny in a sick way that Iran is happy dealing with the USA. Our allies are not happy with the USA. You can’t make everybody happy. So we are glad our president chose Iran to make happy instead of our allies.

Does Jar Jar Binks have a fan club?

May 7, 2015

Everybody is supposed to be so anxious and excited about the upcoming Star Wars new movie. Just consider if the new movie introduces a character more lame and obnoxious than Jar Jar Binks! Meesa no like Jar Jar Binks.

Today we know what Jar Jar Binks would do as president.

Today we know what Jar Jar Binks would do as president.

Now we have to live with someone as inept and confused as that fictional alien as the leader of our country. We are being rude to recognize the stupidity that is rampant across our country over the last 6 years. These years have been more painful and irritating than watching a Jar Jar Binks festival of movie clips.

There are rumors that Jar Jar Binks will leave the Empire to enter the intellectual zoo as a keeper. Our fearless leader is going to become a professor to confuse future generations. How rude!

BRIDGE OF SIGHS is waiting

May 7, 2015

Some musicians have the rare creative talent that shines out across the wasteland of the music business. The millennial generation has not crossed the Bridge of Sighs to know the mystic groove of Robin Trower. Long Misty Days is another trip down the river of music that carries us along. Robin Trower has endured the decades of many musical fads that ruined musicians chasing popularity. His music is genuine expression of his view of the music that is in him. It is safe to say you have not heard anyone today that can imitate his electric guitar style. As a Blues fan, he does have respect for the foundation of blues that became electric psychedelic blues in England. That’s Alright Mama from the album Roots and Branches is a slow shuffle blues that stays in the blues groove right through.

Robin Trower takes us into a mystic groove with his music.

Robin Trower takes us into a mystic groove with his music.

His collaboration with Jack Bruce on 7 Moons album takes us to another world of music that is now in the capable hands of Beck today. Just Another Day paints a world of dreams that are more important than the waking world. The question posed asks us to decide if our dreams should set our course for what we do in “the real world”. Many of the musicians are dying that surrounded Robin Trower and many that inspired him are dead. Jack Bruce left a legacy that can be enjoyed today.

Go across the Bridge of Sighs to cross the river of mediocrity in our culture today. You might find a new way to see the world.

Fantasy advertising luxury cars are depressing

May 5, 2015
Forget the exorbitant price, buy the fantasy ad world?

Forget the exorbitant price, buy the fantasy ad world?

Advertising used to be direct. Happy families enjoying a car trip out of the city. That was a fantasy with well behaved children not fighting or “Don’t touch me!” “You touched me!”

The affluent market target for Lexus is millennial DINK segment. Double Income No Kids For some inexplicable reason a lot of the locations are subterranean in city in a concrete tomb. What is the message? You are entombed working in the city, so escape with a car you cannot afford? The car or lease payments are equal to rent money.

These luxury ads are not uplifting or inspiring. Don’t we deserve to be coddled? Don’t we merit some happy fairy tales on life after buying the car? I am sure Lexus has some amazing cars. But let me indulge my Baby Boomer inner child. When I went to a car dealer with my dad to buy his new Chevy, I was glued to the 1963 red Corvette Sting Ray sitting in the show room. That car made a statement without any words. Nobody had to tell me about hormones and sex appeal looking at that car. Babe magnet fantasy land in my post puberty mind was racing while drooling over that car.

I would never buy that car or any recent corvette, and I knew it was a hole in my future that I cannot replace. Chevy did not have subliminal advertising with dark concrete bunkers in city labyrinths. How about happy millennials laughing as they leave work on Friday night? Try avoiding Lexus ads using concrete bunkers and exploding light bulbs?

Seattle preparing for May day anarchists

April 30, 2015

Seattle was surprised by anarchist rampage in 2012 that disrupted the city with violent demonstrations. 2014 was tense with confrontations also. Anarchists are an odd bunch. How can you anarchists organize anything? Their core belief is in random acts of insanity to force people out of control.

Why is Seattle such a mecca for the angry outcries? Why not Dubuque Iowa? Seattle is a nice tourist destination and mild climate. Anarchists enjoy robbing from richer towns in beautiful country. Molotov cocktails, frenzied hysteria on the doom of our society, and stealing stuff are all predictable essentials of any anarchist event. Somebody has to claim they were harmed by police. That is anticipated after throwing rocks, spitting, and defiantly cursing in a policeman’s face.

Most anarchists are not intelligent enough to figure out how to disrupt society. What is their major target to overthrow in our society? Nobody knows because they are not very bright.

Young anarchists lost and confused in Seattle 2014

Good luck for Seattle on May day 2015. Look out for confused anarchists.

Wesleyan University forcing women into Delta Kappa Epsilon

April 29, 2015

Tinkering and meddling by Wesleyan University is nuts. The Fraternity of Delta Kappa Epsilon after 150 years is being coerced and forced to allow women to live in their fraternity house. Why? As a parent I know that hormones can defeat common sense! What is this ideal world where all the men are gentlemen at all times? As a parent, I do not want women wandering the hallways of my son’s residence at all hours of day and night!

The answer to rape concerns, and inappropriate attention from young men, is to inject women in their living quarters 24 hours a day? What brilliant eunuch figured this solution? Gender equality means women must be housed in a male fraternity house? It is forbidden to permit gender privacy. It is evil to have ethnic or cultural preferences for association, too?

So today, the burning issue at Wesleyan University on the futures of their young men and women in academic studies is to close a fraternity if it does not allow women to live in fraternity house! Will this university take responsibility for the claims of rape and sexual harassment by the young women who take up residence?

Most students want to find a path to a productive and successful future working for a living. What young woman has her university goal to be the 1st female living at Delta Kappa Epsilon? How does that make your future dreams and plans different or better? Is there a quota system that requires so many women live at Delta Kappa Epsilon?

The president Michael S. Roth needs to allow young women to live in the president’s quarters or be accused of discrimination!

President Michael S. Roth

President sorry he killed some folks?

April 26, 2015

Warren Weinstein of Maryland is dead. Giovanni Lo Porto of Italy is dead. Money from the Treasury is being sent to their families now. USA refused to negotiate release of Weinstein, like we did for Bergdahl our deserter.

Our president has micro managed our military operations with his rules of engagement playbook. He bragged to New York Times how he personally approves the victims list for drone attacks.

Our military in Afghanistan had record casualties and deaths with his new combat restrictions, before a shot could be fired, or a support aircraft could be summoned to save our soldiers. However, the drones do not have such stringent restrictions. Why? Because it would make the process too cumbersome to kill Obama targets. So we have blown up families and bystanders near targets in vehicles and in buildings in neighborhoods. Nobody was there to take a picture, so no bad publicity to see on the carnage. No checks from the Treasury either.

Of course, we cannot blame our president. He will make it clear that Congress failed in overseeing the process. He will make it clear that the CIA gave the command to strike by drone. Who cares that our president feels sorrow on the accidental killings? He never suspected that a missile fired into a building might kill a bunch of folks not on the kill list? The important priority is that no CIA agents or special forces were on the ground to coordinate anything. Looking down from satellites for highflying drones targets is as close as we get now.

We know that nobody can promise no civilians will get killed in war. We know that shooting a missile has more chance of massive carnage of civilians, compared to a targeted attack with special forces. Drones are a diverse arsenal from massive robot stealth fighters to propeller sized attack craft.

What makes a drunk fall down?

April 25, 2015

“If I had my life to live over, I’d live over a saloon.”

Our future leaders of the USA have discovered cocktails, beer, and wine. Some have experienced the side effects of enjoying too many refreshments. Some may have even found themselves on the floor!

There are many laws that people break. There is one law that nobody can break! What is it?

Why does a drunk fall down? It is gravity!

This law of nature continues to keep our feet on the ground. It can drop your ass to the ground, too.
So please get drunk responsibly. Sit on the floor, like the Japanese to avoid falling.

USA will get more jobs with Hillary!

CLINTON FOUNDATION takes money from anybody pretending to be a charity.

CLINTON FOUNDATION takes money from anybody pretending to be a charity.

Let us hop on a private jet to ride with “Slick Willy” Clinton as he flies around the world in search of “donations” to his charity. Get to meet billionaires from Canada, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and see millions of dollars promised in donations just because everybody loves Clinton! Why does everybody love to give Clinton money for a charity that does not have much charity results? It was great that USA approved sale of big stake in Uranium mine to a company in Canada run by the Russians. Was that just dumb luck and a coincidence that the sale was approved after a $500,000 speech fee was paid to Bill?

My plan is to get all of the unemployed and working poor in the USA united. We need the Clinton Foundation to provide support and services for our citizens in need! We have no idea how much money spent in Haiti just went to the greedy dictator running that country.

Will Hillary start throwing money around the USA for aid and charity projects? Will they stop flying on private jets chasing money? Hobo folk will not get any hand outs from this foundation. We can wave to the Clintons as they fly high overhead in their private jet.

Remember our American Dream!

April 20, 2015

James Truslow Adams had his historical book Epic of America published in 1931. “The American dream, that has lured tens of millions of all nations to our shores in the past century has not been a dream of merely material plenty, though that has doubtlessly counted heavily. It has been much more than that. It has been a dream of being able to grow to fullest development as man and woman, unhampered by the barriers, which had been erected in the older civilizations, unrepressed by social orders which had been developed for the benefit of classes rather than for the simple human being of any and every class.”


Why are we pretending that our country is not the ideal and the envy of everyone who wants to live our American Dream? Why are we ashamed at our prosperity and accomplishments? We want our children to face the future with a swagger that proclaims our independence! I thank God that I was born here after my parents left Europe to come to USA after WWII. They chose to leave it all behind to be part of our American Dream.

This dream is a reality by the blood, sweat, tears, and sacrifices of many generations in the USA. We do not have the right to kill the dreams of generations before us. I refuse to let social engineers of a elite utopia nightmare take over our dream. I do not accept pretending we are not worthy of our dream. This dream is real for all who dare to dream.

Families risk death fleeing war

April 19, 2015

Chaos and danger are driving out refugees from Libya, Nigeria, Iraq, and Yemen. Families need to feed their children and find a place to sleep without getting killed. These are people impoverished by the constant war and struggles to overthrow governments. The process to become a leader in these countries is based on killing their political opponents.

Every leader stands upon skulls in the climb to power. Dads and moms know there is no mercy and no justice in the struggle for power. They leave with their children to find someplace that offers any hope for a future. My parents came to the USA after WWII to flee Stalin’s domination of Lithuania. They had nothing but a desire to have a future.

My parents secured a safe passage to the USA with a work visa for dad to work on farm in Ohio. The families fleeing the chaos of war have no place to find organized refuge. Many have scraped up the money to get passage on old freighters and ferries that are overloaded for maximum profit. In the last 12 months, 10,000 have been rescued after sinking at sea. Thousands have drowned. They know the danger and risk of death on overloaded old boats. They take the chance of death by drowning for a future life going to Europe into countries that do not want them.

Our foreign policy does create ripples that become tidal waves to small countries like Libya. We elected to overthrow their dictator. We did not have a plan to maintain and restore order in the power struggles for a new leader to claim leadership in Libya. We lost our ambassador Stevens in this chaos after USA killed their dictator. Now families are drowning in their flight to safety anywhere.

Don't ask for permission from your mortal enemies.

Coonhound devotion for family of pack

April 17, 2015

Coonhounds are a special breed of dog. Millie has devotion to her pack dogs, our pets. When our Keeshond goes for a veterinarian visit, she drags me outside as she tracks his scent by our driveway where he hopped into my wife’s car. When he comes home from the vet, she is running around like it is Christmas morning. Her tail is wagging, and she has to sniff his head.

Her little buddy “Poochie” is our rescue mutt that is a mix of Shih Tzu and miniature Poodle. When we saved Millie as a puppy dumped near our woods, Poochie enjoyed knocking her over as top dog. Know that she is 3 times his size, she enjoys playing chase me every day with him. My wife just took him for a Spring hair cut and shampoo. Millie is sad and trying to track down her missing buddy.

Coonhound wants her little buddy back home now!  His empty bed is behind her.

Coonhound wants her little buddy back home now! His empty bed is behind her.

You cannot ignore the bonds of loyalty and devotion to family and dog pack of our Treeing Walker Coonhound Millie. When Poochie comes home from the groomer, she will pick on him that he smells different after the shampoo. Her boys endure her bossing them around, because she has to be the leader of the pack. Millie is loyal, loving, and the sheriff of our home.

AMERICAN SNIPER hurt feelings of whining students

April 10, 2015

Michigan State University found 300 students bitching about the movie AMERICAN SNIPER. These students protest that this movie is biased against Muslims.  Are these students affirming Muslim terrorists as representing the Muslim religion?  Being super sensitive against upsetting anyone whining about “hurt feelings”, somebody in University yanked the plan to show the movie about Chris Kyle.  I thank God that we still have men in this country like the new football coach Jim Harbaugh!

His reaction to the controversy at his University about this film was immediate and direct.  “Michigan Football will watch “American Sniper”! Proud of Chris Kyle & Proud to be an American & if that offends anybody then so be it.”  I love his direct and genuine response to the whiners on his campus.  We have the right to be Americans and we have nothing to apologize for a public display of our honoring those who protect our country.

USA and our citizens are not ashamed of our love of country.  We do not apologize to people who find our enthusiasm too rowdy.  This is a great country that has a powerful attraction to freedom lovers who are willing to sacrifice for great reward.  Coach Harbaugh is an American!  The offended Muslim students will need to deal adapt or leave the campus.  Protecting our freedom and honoring those who died protecting our freedom is more important to us.  Nobody is forced to live here.  Nobody is going to force us to be ashamed of our citizens or our patriotism.

Coach Harbaugh by his stand, turned the appeasing University stooges to reverse position.  The movie is being shown.  We all need to simply take a stand for our love of USA.

Coach Jim Harbaugh loves Michigan State University and the USA!

Jubilant street celebrations in Iran? Yeah, baby!

April 4, 2015

Our Secretary of State John Kerry has done the impossible!  He had the people in Iran dancing and celebrating in their streets over his “framework” of an agreement to be agreed upon for nuclear fuel.  He was very busy getting Swiss chocolate so he did not bring up the ballistic missiles Iran has bought to transport nuclear material.  We congratulate Kerry for making so many people in Iran happy.

I did not find anybody in my town honking car horns and celebrating the nuclear deal!  It did seem odd that nobody in the USA feels this is a great deal, but everybody is celebrating in Iran?

It is confusing to follow anyway.  Iran had their “framework” of an agreement to be completed.  Kerry had his “framework” of an agreement to be completed.  So we do not have an agreement, but we expect both versions of the “FRAMEWORK” to match sometime.

After 3 months, we decided we need 3 more months together?  Why not hold these talks in Israel?

The most holy Ayatollah Khomeni of Iran is about to get the infamous 3 Stooges double eyejab from Detective Drebin used by Moe on Curly quite often.

Buffett finds it easy to take money

March 26, 2015
Buffett using private jet

The news media treat Warren Buffett as a beloved great grandfather of our economy.  I view him as more of a vampire sucking up great amounts of money to only make money for himself. Rich people always find leeches and media gushing praise.  Why is the “Oracle of Omaha” viewed as a blood sucker?

Recent history from the upheaval in the USA and the world in financial collapse of 2008 is where W.B. showed his fangs.  Goldman Sachs “agreed” to take billions in cash from Berkshire Hathaway of W.B., but at Shylock terms of 10%.  Beggars can’t be choosers, and W.B. chuckled counting his money by getting nose bleed interest rate and option to convert into shares of common stock of Goldman Sachs.

Just this week Berkshire Hathaway that owns a large amount of Heinz common stock, engineered a  merger and acquisition of Kraft foods to make a Frankenstein monster giant food company.  So W.B. suggests to Heinz board that buying Kraft is a great deal.  Kraft share holders will make a lot of money.  Heinz share holders have not seen any great gains while connected with Berkshire Hathaway.  Plus the financing for the takeover by Berkshire Hathaway “earns” a generous financing charge.  Heinz was not in a position to say no to any of this Frankenstein monster plan.

The laws and regulations lobbied by W.B. at White House seem to favor Berkshire Hathaway?  This is a total surprise to us common folk that watch the billionaires kiss the royal rump of our president of USA!

W.B. sucks but nobody can get him off the stage!

Stealing money from US Steel

March 19, 2015

Empty suit in chair of POTUS

Empty suit in chair of POTUS

Everybody in the USA deserves a fair chance and a fair shot at getting a good job per our president. Talk is cheap. Why is the import of steel from China flooding USA and shutting down our local steel plants? Our Federal Reserve policy has the strong dollar make our exports more expensive outside of USA. Our allowing China to flood our markets with steel sold below cost is subsidized by China to shut down our steel industry. Our president has been taking steps to fix this for the last 4 years!? Hope our steel industry figured out that they are on their own to fix our monetary problems, and to counter China stealing our steel business.

We cannot afford to wait 2 more years until we get a new president. In 2 years, our steel plants will be shrunk and those jobs will be GONE. Like all of our dire problems, our president tells us he is focused like a laser on the problem, and he will get back to us on his progress in a couple of years. We know how that goes.

We have a resilient group of business leaders in the steel industry. They cannot fix monetary exchange problems. They cannot stop China from exporting steel below cost.

How about our president insist that China must allow the steel workers union to be in every plant in China? How about mandatory health care benefits and maternity leave on any imported steel company? How about all imported steel must go through the West Coast sea ports on the work slow down holding up shipments for 4 weeks?

 I am too simple to be fooled.

I am too simple to be fooled.

It is all my fault.

Europe fought 300 years failing to rid themselves of Muslims.

My parents came from Lithuania after WWII to the USA. I am guilty of white privilege. They came here with nothing, no relatives to help them. My success was due to oppressing minorities and taking advantage of former slaves. My ancestors killed during the Crusades a thousand years ago. It is my guilt that Muslims today kill Jewish delicatessen store owners. It is my fault that dumb ass converts to Muslim are killing today. Chopping off heads, burning people alive, and butchering families of Christians is my fault.

I have been reviewing this. SCREW THEM! I am not giving a free pass to killers, thieves, whiners, and “life is not fair” protesters. In fact, I will hurt somebody’s feelings! Life is tough. USA is the land of opportunity. We are not a sympathy vending machine handing out money for the Crusades or Jihad wannabe idiots. Don’t bug me with my guilt being a white man. I am proud of my family, and what we have accomplished without handouts, welfare, or stealing.

My parents came here as “legal aliens” with nothing but determination to start a new life after losing everything in the war. I am a first generation citizen. My parents came over on a battle ship from Europe. My wife’s family came over on the Mayflower. What a great country!

Nobody is going to make me feel guilty on what I achieved. There are a lot of people richer than I am. Good for them! There are a lot of people poorer than me. We do sponsor Roman Catholic charities to help.

It is time for the USA to start losing our patience. Don’t blame us for Jihad, slavery, and illegal aliens demanding hand outs! The complaint window is officially closed.

Don't ask for permission from your mortal enemies.

Did Hillary invent “e-mail” as Secretary of State?

March 5, 2015
CLINTON FOUNDATION takes money from anybody pretending to be a charity.

That creepy looking lady was our Secretary of State representing our country. It would be seem pretty basic that she would be provided stationary for letters, an email address in our government for official communications, and maybe even a portable phone. I was more than stunned to learn that Hillary Clinton NEVER set up a government email account. I am sure the CIA and NSA all agree that her security system was superior to the U.S.A. government?

Excuse me, but is she NUTS? The Chief of Staff for the President and the security procedures in our government were ignored because she said so? What is the reason she used? It was too hard to remember her password?

If you worked the Securities Industry, and you set up a personal e-mail to conduct business, then you are fired and fined immediately. But if you represent the U.S.A. as Secretary of State, then sending confidential and secret e-mail as “Hot Momma” is no problem!

So secret e-mail on Benghazi in her private secret account is recorded how? It reminds me of her billing records as a lawyer that finally turned up in a car trunk in auto salvage yard in Arkansas, years after they were subpoenaed. Funny how stuff just walks away from Hillary. Not very funny for those families that still have no answer on their deaths.

Did you get your email from "Hot Momma"?

Staying warm is best revenge

February 18, 2015
Wisconsin out of propane!  I'm not out of wood!

My wife knows I am a big baby! I never get sick. I had a cold for 10 days but luckily no fever or flu. However, even with sub zero weather, I do not mind hauling in fire wood to keep us cozy and toasty warm 74 degrees. Our furnace is set at 68, so the extra warmth is courtesy of our fireplace.

Stacking the wood in October and November made my life easier now in deadly weather. It is a short walk from our side door to haul in more fuel. Splitting and stacking wood is real work, but worth the effort to stay warm in the dead of Winter. I have some improvements in mind for organizing the wood stacks for this coming Fall. But I am very happy that I spent the time and effort that is keeping us warm today.

My wife appreciates the extra warmth that doesn’t cost us a dime extra. When we are out with the dogs, the scent of oak and cedar wood from the chimney is a welcome reminder of the waiting warmth inside. The sun is shining. The wind is blowing from the North West. It is below zero outside, and we can enjoy the view without frosted windows.

Feb 18, 2015 below zero but we don't care.

Feb 18, 2015 below zero but we don’t care.

We harvested dead trees earlier this year. In high winds dead trees do kill people when crashing down. In hot Summer droughts, wild fires are a serious threat. These trees now keep us warm, and our neighbors are safer with selective harvesting. The Menominee Nation are masters of timber management. We welcome their men and women who cleared our dead trees.

Global Warming conference canceled due to snow

February 17, 2015
Obama closed federal government due to SNOW?

Federal government declared today a “snow emergency” with 6 inches of snow in Washington, D.C. today! Our greatest threat to security is our own federal government being afraid of the snow! All government offices are closed today after the federal holiday President’s Day. It is time to regain our pioneer heritage and face the challenges nature throws at us.

President Obama continues to claim that Global Warming Climate Change is our greatest problem? We have survived as a country droughts, blizzards, tornadoes, and hurricanes without demanding billions for wasted research. The ultimate goal is to regulate the climate so that it is never hot or cold, but just lukewarm. Does anybody believe this fairy tale of climate control?

Our president is not setting any goals. He needs billions and billions more to “improve” stuff but not achieve anything.

Federal budget must be bigger to save our world!

Secret threat revealed

February 16, 2015
Cowards kill defenseless to pretend they are brave.

A credible threat has been discovered from the criminal element of the ISIS organization. They have been setting up video equipment around several golf courses favored by our fearless leader. Fortunately, he has never played a landmark or tournament golf course. So the targeted clubs are for fat cats in the evil 1% of wealthy. It is not clear if they prepared to interrupt his round of golf. ISIS knew that Biden would never pay the ransom to release their hostage.

This finding was in last month’s national security briefing, but he was out golfing at the time.

Terrorists have crossed a red line in targeting golf course terrorism!

Finally music returns!

February 11, 2015

Euterpe has lifted the darkness with inspiration for songs that bring delight. Daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, we are grateful! Bless this Muse and her inspired artists.

We Belong Together by Gavin DeGraw is a new direction based upon our best qualities. Genuine feelings that guide us as a lifelong goal is the bed rock.

Blue Moon by Beck Hansen in his album of the year Morning Phase is a triumphant stand even if “tired of being alone”!

Beck has woven a sonic fabric of emotions we feel in our pilgrimage through the universe. The sound is an ethereal Wave that welcomes us to ride the wave.

I am enjoying their downloads in my digital library that goes with me as The Road Goes on Forever.

Music for adults is a welcome change in the music industry. BOOTY and SLAP THAT BOOTY can never be replaced by new artists! Glad to have moved onto the new Millennium of music.

President Obama blames Crusades as evil at prayer breakfast

February 5, 2015
Gitmo and Crusades piss off Muslims to kill us?

Gitmo and Crusades piss off Muslims to kill us?

Today is the National Day of Prayer. Our president spoiled a prayer breakfast by sharing his concerns about Christians. It is our fault here in the USA that the Crusades took place a thousand years ago. The Muslims were invading Europe and pillaging churches for centuries before the Crusades. Crusades was the response of Europe. So Christians dreamed up an invasion of Muslim conquered territory that were taken from the Christians by sword and flame.

Our president is happy to wait a couple of hundred years to endure Muslim invasions and conquering territory. The Christians being killed are compensation for the Crusades killing Muslims? We need to recognize that our country has surrendered to anyone that wants to steal a country. Iraq for the ISIS is ok. Ukraine for Putin is ok. Iran making nuclear missiles is ok. China stealing our weapons blueprints is ok. Mexico blaming us for illegal immigrants is ok.

President blames the “cult of death” that is the Muslim Jihad invasion. The Pope is a thousand years ahead of him. The Albigensian Heresy was a target of the Crusade. They saw death as a glory to seek as soon as possible. Our president will set up a panel to investigate history of Crusade so USA can repay Muslims. We pay for everyone around the world. He is quick to pay, and slow to act on threats killing citizens and allies.

Please, dear Lord protect the USA. We have been abandoned and left without anyone to lead us. Amen

Driving School for Rappers by Suge Knight

January 31, 2015
Sugar Bear

Have you ever met a “Rap Mogul”? You are more likely to have met him if you have been in prison or jail before. Suge Knight runs Death Row Records. It seems Suge ran over 2 people by “accident”. He did it twice by backing into them and then running over them? We have to acknowledge his persistence, but have to doubt that he was not aware of running over anyone.

Mogul Knight in his youth loved the cereal Sugar Crisps with the mascot Sugar Bear, so he was dubbed “Suge”. If you want to learn how to drive like a Rap Mogul, then contact Death Row Records for the Suge evasive driving course.

It does seem odd that a few Death Row Records competitors got accidentally shot dead. Vanilla Ice got to see LA upside down while Suge held him by his ankles hanging him over his balcony during a negotiation.

Sounds glamorous being a Rap star. Unless, you need to work with a Rap Mogul, then it sounds lethal. Suge Rap Star Driving School is best avoided. Don’t expect a refund.

AMERICAN SNIPER movie holds audience

January 19, 2015
World of Chris Kyle portrayed by Bradley Cooper.

World of Chris Kyle portrayed by Bradley Cooper.

My wife and I had anxiety and worry when our son was in combat in Iraq. It was strange to keep in touch by Facebook postings, Skype, and email from the battle front. I was forced to learn how to use digital technology to keep in touch with our soldier. It was reassuring to keep in contact. It did not remove our worry that he could be kept safe just by keeping in touch with us in the USA.

Client Eastwood has directed a movie about an exceptional warrior who fought to keep us safe here in the USA. Chris Kyle is a larger than life man who was willing to face the lethal risks of war in 4 tours of combat. Bradley Cooper has captured his character facing death in combat and taking extra risks to win the war. I cannot praise Eastwood enough in capturing war in the battle front, without typical Hollywood digital tricks for spraying fountains of blood. This is realistic and honest. Kyle has anguish and deals with combat stress that complicates his life back home.

I went to watch the movie on January 16 alone, because my wife did not want to see the Iraq war. The movie showing was a full house. Nobody stirred or left the theater until the last credit was scrolled on the screen. The audience was silent and speechless. I learned that this is how the audiences across the USA stayed riveted to the movie to the very ending credits.

The one scene that hit me hardest was the intense focused stare of Chris Kyle seeing the live news video on the jet airplanes crashing into the Twin Towers of Manhattan. It dragged me right back to my feelings when I was watching it that morning of 9/11/2001. Kyle knew that the war was on without saying a word.

It is not worthy of comment to deal with the Hollywood folks who ridicule the life and achievements of Chris Kyle. Courage in the face of death by fighting terrorists with no defined battle fronts is confusing. The “rules of engagement” limited and punished the military to restrain use of force until attacked. Our military did not shoot first and ask questions later.

This movie is a very intense experience. It includes the doubts and stress from combat that cannot be left in Iraq when back in the USA. Consider seeing this movie. Prepare to be immersed in the world of Chris Kyle that ended sadly but triumphant.

Green Bay Packers ignore the “experts” to win!

January 18, 2015

Growing up in Chicago, I endured a lot of miserable football seasons as a fan. My shining moment was in the 1985 NFL season for the Chicago Bears. I was in the stands for every home game, and watched the away games on television. My biggest regret was not spending the money to go on the road to see the Super Bowl game in New Orleans. I was a little strapped for cash being recently widowed, and getting out from under a lot of bills. Anyway, my allegiance remains with my mediocre Bears.

I moved to Wisconsin, north and west of Green Bay. We have more bears, eagles, deer, wolves, than people in our area. Green Bay has a unique life style. I remember going to a Bears game, and seeing dozens of pick up trucks with tagged field dressed bucks driving by Lambeau Field. Guys hopped out of their blaze orange, dropped the carcass off at their garage, and walked over to the football stadium for tail gate BBQ with cocktails. Of course Reggie White and Brett Favre crushed my Bears.

The tradition of Bears and Packers is the National Football League. A small move, but a big impact on the Packers is the addition of former Bear, Julius Peppers. This is his season to finally get a Super Bowl ring. He wants to get a Super Bowl ring. His experience and his motivation has energized the locker room. I believe in fate and destiny in many important moments in all of our lives. It is my feeling, that Peppers walking into the Packers team is a major turning point. I admire his contribution to Bears football, and now his contribution to Packers football. They can win it all!

The “experts” of ESPN had 15 of the 16 analysts choose the Seattle Seahawks as the winner over the Packers today. Packers will win today. They are a team destined to give Peppers his last achievement as a professional football player. Julius Peppers is a champion player.

Julius Peppers will frustrate Seahawks quarterback Wilson.

Is killing 2,000 Christians in Nigeria worth a tweet?

January 14, 2015
Michelle tweets do not save lives in Nigeria!

Michelle tweets do not save lives in Nigeria!

Wake up folks! Nigeria is in chaos, and our president focuses our military on fighting diarrhea. That is a morale booster for our fighting forces on the front lines of out house battles. Our president says killing thousands of Christians in Nigeria recently is a “regional problem” not affecting the USA. So how is EBOLA diarrhea a global threat?

It seems Michelle Obama knows her husband is a colossal loser, so she does not even bother with a stupid Twitter campaign against Christian extermination.

So world leaders in Paris marched to demonstrate unity against Islamic terrorists. It is a regional problem, so our president stayed in front of his television watching football games.

The girls and young ladies kidnapped in 2013 sparked a celebrity Twitter campaign that only resulted in self indulgent selfies. Thank you Michelle for sharing your Tweet in photo. How many girls did it save? ZIP NONE

More Christians are being slaughtered around the world, in many regional conflicts so USA will ignore it all. We are so proud that our president plans a summit on “extremism” in February. We can be sure racism, TEA party protesters, and Christians will be the problems needing new federal meddling.

There are families being exterminated for their Christian faith by ISIS and Islamic terrorists.

Paris in solidarity against Islamic terrorists

January 11, 2015
Paris Jan 11 2015

World leaders visited Paris to demonstrate unity opposed to terrorism. Our country’s leader stayed home. No reason or explanation was given from White House on what pressing golf game, or executive order kept our fearless leader away.

It was estimated that close to 3 million French came out to demonstrate for freedom in opposition to Islamic terrorist attacks. NATO allies and leaders of the free world made their presence to publicly prove their unity opposing terrorists.

History does not a PAUSE button or replay option. You are either there when duty calls, or you are history. Our president elected to do nothing. He sent Eric Holder who has done nothing on fighting terrorism, except lawsuits that can’t be served. Benghazi families are waiting for his justice against the Islamic terrorists who murdered our 4 citizens, and wounded more.

Muslim attacks invite cudgel Crusade

January 8, 2015

Centuries of battle and warfare against Muslim conquest of Europe and Asia never did end. We are not even bothering to pretend to battle the Muslim conquest of USA. We welcome diversity. Muslims have no diversity. Muslims behead Christians. Muslims kill and maim critics of their odd beliefs. France discovered that Sharia justice uses bullets against their citizens in Paris.

There are spontaneous demonstrations in France and through out Europe against Muslim attackers. We are waiting for President Obama to complain that Europe has no right to profile Muslim killers for protest. We know that worked real well for Boston when the bombs blew up too many Marathon celebrants. Our fearless leader lives in a dream world of his bong haze.

The start of the Crusades a thousand years ago is not well recorded. We can have accurate records on this Crusade that arises from the people of Europe. Cudgels, hand axes, and daggers are readily available to defend your freedom from Muslim conquest. If I protest to Muslims that they need to stop their terrorist members, it would be a waste of time. Evil doers will not find anyone offering mercy for their doomed path.

The leaders in Europe cannot ignore the people in the streets who have no patience with tolerance of Muslim violence. We need to honor the will of the people to drive out the evil doers who claim they are the true Muslim. Onward, Christian soldiers!

Europe fought 300 years failing to rid themselves of Muslims.

Winter 2015 kicks open your door

January 4, 2015
Wisconsin out of propane!  I'm not out of wood!
More snow than we need everywhere!

Remembering winter of 2014?

Today the wind is from the North by Northwest. It is 10 degrees now going to 15 below tonight. The wind brings the chill down to 10 below now. I got to enjoy playing outside for over 2 hours shoveling and hauling fire wood to the house. Even the dogs won’t stay out that long.

The West coast has wild weather of high winds and sudden snow, and the East coast gets to fight the Northeastern storms. Wisconsin north woods gets the storms from Canada or the Northwestern plains. USA sees Winter that reminds them of our worst last year.

I hope we got some good luck. Meanwhile keep the fire burning bright, and be sure you got deerskin bomber hat with rabbit fur to keep your head warm. I got the cast iron stove blazing away. I need to keep it going all day and night.

Governor Mario Cuomo bought me drinks!

January 2, 2015
Mario Cuomo 1995

In 1991 I worked as Executive Sales Manager for a printing company headquartered in Illinois. One of our major clients supported the Anti-Defamation League and we bought a table at the fund raiser in New York City for $4,000. Several of us were needed to dutifully represent my firm at the event. My boss Rick was Vice President of Sales and was a nice guy.

He spent a lot of time in New York with our book publisher clients and was planning on attending the event with me. The Account Executive from my office was already in New York as well and we were to meet him at the event. I met Rick and we walked to the hotel. Neither one of us had the invitation and I asked in the lobby where was the fund raiser. Get on the elevator to the penthouse. It didn’t sound right but Rick wanted to just push elevator button and go.

There was no reception table, and we went into a large suite with a bar busy serving. Rick and I did not need any prodding. We both got cocktails with his favorite Old Fashioned and my favorite Vodka Gimlet with onions. The majority of those attending were Jewish, and the Anti-Defamation League is a Jewish sponsored event. However, having an open bar with waiters serving lots of appetizers did not fit prior events. We looked at each other, shrugged our shoulders and ordered our 2nd drinks.

We were pinned into the suite with later arrivals blocking the hallway out from the bar area. We were forced to keep drinking! Then my fears were confirmed that we were missing the client event. Governor Mario Cuomo entered the room from a side door into the Suite living room. He got a warm welcome from the wealthy donors. This was obviously a exclusive crowd political fund raiser.

Mario was reminding these wealthy city dwellers on the benefits they enjoy relying upon the Democrat party improvements benefiting New York City from his governor’s office. He made specific reference to the exclusive area of Manhattan where those wealthy enjoyed living. They smiled and nodded in appreciation. He closed with a pointed reminder to give Democrat party money to take President office. He made sure to shake hands and chat before his departure. Rick and I plowed through hallway people to get out of there after appetizers and cocktails on Cuomo!

The event was half way done and we found our event on a mezzanine level ball room and went to our table. Jim my sales guy was worried something happened to us. He was laughing that we got a better deal by our mistake. We did make sure to shake hands and congratulate his customer. Typically, our absence was not noticed since the room was packed.

Farewell to the Governor whose hospitality was enjoyed by 2 freeloaders many years ago.

2014 has released a few more souls

December 30, 2014

When I was young, the death of musicians I loved near my age bothered me a lot. Why choose to wander stoned on the edge of a cliff? Too many fell into a crypt way too soon. One of my favorites to this day is little recognized. Alan “blind owl” Wilson discovered the blues working in the old world retail “music store” selling vinyl records. Anyway, he loved the blues, and some in Chicago thought he ripped off music from other older blues players. I don’t know, but I do know he had the questions a lot of us asked in the 1960’s. Going Up The Country and a great boogie song On The Road Again are worth a listen and a download.

Blind Owl is one of the best blues harp players of all time.

Blind Owl is one of the best blues harp players of all time.

So from that same era, we say goodbye to Joe Cocker. He passed away recently from illness. I have been adding a lot of his music to my digital library. Jim Belushi did a hilarious impersonation of Joe on SNL many many moons ago. Joe appeared to be in spasms and contortions when he was deep into his song. It seemed odd, but hey England celebrates eccentric personalities! The funniest was that the promoters of Woodstock assumed he was black when they heard his songs. Here comes this tall white dude belting out soul singing!? Woodstock kind of opened the door to his fame.

Joe Cocker kept the flame alive until the end.

Goodbye Joe. The heavenly choir will get some more soul!

It’s over! Chicago BEARS fire head coach

December 29, 2014
ditka-cigar-smoker Da Coach

Born in Chicago, I grew up a BEARS fan. It was not until 1985 that I felt the elation of victories that meant something. The cast of characters, and they were real characters, combined with the coaches feuding between Iron Mike Ditka the head coach, and Buddy Ryan the defensive coach made the chili a lot spicier! We had fun, we had celebrations, and we had stories that endure to this day.

Ryan ridiculed and rode the ass of Samurai Mike Singletary. Mike was a devout Christian that Buddy said was too damn slow and too dumb to be a middle linebacker. Mike of course, was a crazy man on the field on a mission. Ryan and Ditka could not stand each other and ran Defense and Offense like 2 separate teams. Quarterback Jim McMahon knew there was only an “I” in Jim and didn’t worry about being a “team” player at all. He ridiculed league commissioner and wore goofy head band messages to infuriate the commercial NFL industry ruler Rozelle. Mike Ditka knew he had more of a circus than a tragedy to play out in 1985. Super Bowl victory is now a ancient memory for this BEARS fan.

The general manager Emery, and the head coach Trestman have not made any impression or added any chapter to the legacy of the “monsters of the Midway” of Poppa Bear Halas. They are fired and nobody will miss them or remember them. The next coach will not have a hard act to follow for an improvement. Emery has made quarterback Cutler wealthy beyond his meager accomplishments. Halas has to be spinning in his grave over the 100 million dollars Jay would collect if they keep him into 2015. Mike Ditka knew Halas threw nickels around like cast iron man hole covers.

I will return to the scene of this tragedy in 2015, hoping to find the magic of 1985 after the ruined 2014 season. Chicago had a team that was not the model of brotherly love, or role models for Boy Scouts either. They did the SuperBowl Shuffle video because they knew they would win the big game. They did!

Loser coach and GM of BEARS gone good riddance!

Smells of the season

December 23, 2014
Do not take gifts from congress!  They cost too much!

The refreshing odor from a fir tree in the living room is a unique smell for Christmas. Decorated with ornaments and colorful lights it is a festive sight. The smells of Christmas add to enjoying memories.

Mom baked cookies in when I was a kid, and she would let me lick the mixing spoon when she was done. We anticipated enjoying those cookies on Christmas day. The smell of her baking a couple days before Christmas Eve was awesome.

There was a young Indian boy who played with our youngest son. He would time his visit close to supper meal time. “Boy, that sure smells good!” His mom was divorced and didn’t make a lot working, so she lived with mom across the road. He was not bashful on enjoying a meal with us. Of course he always got some of our meal to carry home.

Snow is on the ground and I haul in oak and cedar firewood to bring a warm holiday glow from the cast iron stove in the family room. The smell of cedar is not overpowering but a welcome scent. My wife loves to have candles glowing and she always includes a large scented candle in her holiday glow. The advent candles are glowing every night.

Coffee brewing on Christmas morning is essential for my wife. I enjoy the smell but I always drink tea. Merry Christmas from the north woods of Wisconsin! My coonhound howls every time she goes out in the woods and lifts her head to catch every scent in the breeze.

A picture is worth a thousand words. But a smell makes a memory! Who cut the cheese?

Coon Hounds hunt bears, but Millie is a BEARS fan since I am.

Protestor industry 2014 reaps bitter harvest

December 21, 2014

How does a criminal appoint himself as a executioner of New York police?  It has occurred to me that the hysterical public protest demonstrations in New York city with chants for “dead cops” has a definite connection.  The mayor of New York has fortified his mansion more at city expense, but has allowed anarchy to grow by turning a blind eye like “what problem with protestors?” Nobody intends or wants anybody to get killed, but inflaming emotional anger is lethal!

Two husbands gone with widows to see the year end with a funeral. At press conference on execution of 2 NYPD Saturday 12/20/2014 had police officers turn their back on the mayor of New York. The mayor has a private police guard with a newly fortified fence to protect him and his family. Protect him from the people of New York? He speaks out about equal rights and criticizes discrimination. Is he scared of his own residents of his city attacking his mansion?

The entrepreneur protestor on call for any extortion money by racial protest is “the reverend” AL Sharpton. He spun a tale that he was working undercover with authorities to stop drug dealing in New York. It seemed he was dealing as a small time criminal for a few dollars. Now he has found his calling. Stirring up hatred and inflaming mobs to riot is just a necessary way for him to make his money by donations to make him go away. Protection money to criminals is an old profession he has chosen. Do you want a mob marching own your street? Pay up, support the cause for freedom and justice defined by “the reverend”!

Weathermen targeting military and police for execution was Bill Ayers contribution to justice in USA. Black Panthers using force for “street justice” is honored in universities and Eric Holder’s office. The danger is that tolerating the concept of “street justice” leads to anarchy with vigilantes roaming the streets. Liberals of course know which are the proper causes to use violence and mayhem. Everything else is illegal and investigated by Eric Holder with teams of FBI.

The mayor of New York should go to Hawaii for a consultation with our fearless leader. He stepped into it and seems mystified why people are mad at him?

Christmas is a time to try to bring everyone to appreciate the promise of salvation from sin. I do not care about the mayor of New York, or the extortion industry of “the reverend”. Nobody will care or remember the agents of discord and anarchy. We will still honor Christmas long after I am gone.

Bombs are Bill's preferred method of killing.

Fearless Leader defends free expression in USA!

December 19, 2014
BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards - Arrivals

Kim John-un is the tyrannical ruler of North Korea. The USA recognizes his brutality and his ambition to be a nuclear super power. Our president has done nothing over 6 years to impede or derail the military growth in North Korea.

Sony approved a comedy film to mock the young dictator Kim in a fantastic plot of USA secret plot to kill him. Our president ignored the premise of the plot. Everyone knows he favors drones to kill any problem he wants to solve. Anyway, our heroic commander in chief did not approve of cowardice of Sony to whimper and hide from Kim. Canceling distribution of a movie that targeted to offend and humiliate Kim was criticized by Obama.

So our president is a champion of free expression, and too bad if it offends terrorists? It seems so long ago, but President Obama was critical of a movie mocking Muslim Jihad. Obama was convinced the deaths in Benghazi on 9/11/2011 was result of a movie nobody has seen. AG Holder did find a reason to jail the producer of this movie. You can’t see the movie, and you don’t see anything of this imprisoned producer.

So Sony should know that you might wind up in prison and targeted by the attorney general if Obama finds your film offensive. However, Sony needs to stand up to North Korea alone, even if Obama has not stood up to North Korea.

This is a job for POLICE SQUAD and detective Drebbin!

George Clooney took a mature and measured public sign that Hollywood refuses to be cowards and hide from threats of North Korea. Only problem, is that Clooney is the only one willing to sign a public declaration defying Kim! Where are the heroic folks of Hollywood? George sees he is on his own! Proud of George to publicly stand up to tyranny.

Christmas celebration renews faith, hope, and charity

December 15, 2014
Hobo Santa

Christmas for 2014 compels us to enjoy the company of our family and friends. The Christmas memories we relive from our past include the ornaments on our tree connecting us to places and people we love. We celebrate connecting with family and friends The simplest gesture of making a phone call can be worth more than a bottle of champagne to family.

The Hobo Railroad in Lincoln, New Hampshire celebrates our traditions and railroad history. As a kid, I enjoyed visiting friends with my family by train. The experience of traveling by train, and the anticipation of visiting a new place adds to enjoying the trip.

Santa Claus is coming to town!

Santa Claus is coming to town!

This is our time to remind ourselves that a baby can be a miracle to save our world. We need our faith to be strengthened again. We will find our hope restored as we devote ourselves to acts of charity. Santa Claus deserves a break

War path of Elizabeth Warren

December 14, 2014
In happier times before Obama slapped Warren with POLITICIAN label.

“How!” Senator Elizabeth Warren is wandering through the fond memories of happy warriors that are now in their Happy Hunting Grounds. There are not any scalps hanging from her teepee. She has not been on a real war path. Her war paint is for video and photo opportunities.

She must have heard the tales around the camp fire of Indian nations donating wampum for weeping Slick Willy Clinton when he was our great white father in the White House. He accepted donations the native nations could not afford to donate. The only chance for native Americans was to buy some freedom by “donations” to loosen our government’s noose around their necks. Elizabeth is an Indian princess with claimed ancestry to the native blood of North America. Slick Willy would bite his lip and tears welled up as it suited him. He had no shame in selling federal favors for wampum.

The list of problems that Senator Warren has cataloged on her web page are long and familiar. These are the favorite targets of “Reform Candidates” since before Huey Long was buried. Just like the poor, these reform platforms will always be with us. You don’t get a buffalo hide for warmth or some venison for food without actually hunting! You have to pull the trigger. You cannot talk a buffalo or a deer to death. We have not seen a single scalp taken yet from the enemies of reform she keeps yakking about.

Not many senators do much more than talk. Senator Durbin and former Senator Feingold have done nothing but talk. They have accomplished nothing. (Unless you count the worthless campaign finance reform bill known as McCain-Feingold. Since that has been passed, donation mounds of money have grown huge, and endless advertising plus phone calls.)

We look forward to seeing the war path of Indian princess Warren.

Reform warrior Warren talks a lot but no scalps.

Elizabeth Warren is Captain Ahab!

Gregory Peck

Senator Elizabeth Warren took a cue from Senator Ted Cruz and asked the Democrats still left in office for Senate and House to be killed in act of vengeance. Just like Captain Ahab tormented and chasing Moby Dick the great white whale, our Indian princess demands revenge and death for her ship mates. The 1st budget to actually be voted and passed in 6 years offends her sensitive sense of smell. “I smite thee, cursed whale!”

She has publicly claimed the mantle of protector of orphans, widows, retired people, and every voting block that evokes tears of sympathy! This wealthy 1% defender of the down trodden has her money in great mounds of cash. She has declared open season on taking shots at the same targets Democrats have blasted for the last 5 decades! She connects with the poorest and most at risk in her Huey Long rhetoric. Share the Wealth What has she ever actually done?

Her heritage of being an Indian princess was her inspired creation, even if deceptive. Her speeches have accomplished and helped none of her suffering impoverished dependent people. Now she demands that all harpoon the budget to bring down Moby Dick. Democrats saw how well Ted Cruz did on last year’s government shut down. Nobody is rowing full speed ahead to be crushed by Moby Dick, and they know the Indian princess has never killed a whale like the budget.

She loves to talk.  Nothing done yet.

We have 18 trillion line of credit!

December 3, 2014

Today is a very special day! USA can be proud that we have 18 trillion dollars in credit owed? Wait! We know that in 2015 our fearless leader will get us to 19 trillion dollars in debt!

My sons, and their children, and their grandchildren, and their great grand children will be paying the interest charge without reducing the debt. In 6 years our president has found it essential to add 8 trillion dollars of this debt. This is not enough debt! We have to feel guilty on overlooking more money for every government program. We can take pride that we are cutting staffing and cutting budget in our defense department!

Maybe the election results for 2014 are evidence that we are not “stupid voters”? Maybe the USA tax payers do not want to give a blank check for stupid spending to our president? Everyone of us can point to a government program essential to our life?

Hey, it's only your money we are spending!

Hey, it’s only your money we are spending!

Masked idiots want us to follow!?

November 30, 2014

USA has mobs that want to lead our country by extortion. Give us what we want or you are a racist. Give us what we want so we don’t burn more buildings. Give us what we want or we will invade public areas to interfere normal community activity. We are not being restricted by the Attorney General or FBI. Masked terrorists are tolerated as acceptable now by our federal government.

We pretend sympathy for dead thug Mike Brown.  We want to control USA!

We pretend sympathy for dead thug Mike Brown. We want to control USA!

Ports like Oakland get blocked to extort the public into submitting to any lunatic cause. Highways are blockaded by mobs that don’t consider ambulances or emergency vehicles blocked. When will we see prosecution and rogue gallery of mug shots to single out the masked mob idiots? Atlanta dared to take a reasonable step.

This moron was hiding behind his mask and hauled in by Atlanta police.

This moron was hiding behind his mask and hauled in by Atlanta police.

Citizen vigilantes start, when the courts and police let mobs of marauders hold the community hostage. Our president can be proud of his stirring up more violence in his last 6 years. Expected to hear our president tell us that “If I had a son, he would be like Michael Brown!” Ferguson in flames and president won’t show up. Just like Benghazi when he hid.

May the odds ever be in your favor!

Hunger Games

We have endured a long hard time of sacrifice and loss of hope. The emotional connection with The Hunger Games is to see the wealthy elite self indulgence in The Capitol who enjoy the annual carnage and gore of the annual competition from the impoverished 12 districts. The oppressed and over taxed citizens provide the wealth for those leeches who inhabit The Capitol. We can relate to the concept of a ruling elite class who enrich themselves at the expense of impoverished citizens.

Can we at least have a video marathon showing all the exotic vacations in lavish settings that our First Family had over the last 6 years? How about the lobbyist lavish events to gain favor from the ruling elite for government contracts? Never mind about our 17 trillion dollars of debt paid by generations of impoverished citizens. Did we really need to spend millions on research of drunk monkeys, fat lesbians, and dilemma of promoting tofu?

Anyway, when my wife and I watch these movies, the social mirror reflects the self indulgent elite being voyeurs watching the impoverished killing each other as entertainment. Our fearless leader has no clue on the mass slaughter going on in the black communities of Chicago, and other impoverished neighborhoods. There is no entertainment value in watching these senseless killings. How about an annual gang killing contest for some prizes televised? This could include all ethnic type gangs, even some Russians! So many are getting killed every year, our President should at least create some entertainment out of this carnage. He is doing nothing to help get more jobs for the poor. He is doing nothing constructive so he might as well be our entertainer in chief.
