Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

Those who want the Government to regulate matters of the mind and spirit are like men who are so afraid of being murdered that they commit suicide to avoid assassination.
Harry S. Truman

What is fear?

I remember when The Boss was with child I had fear for her and the baby all the time. My two boys were born without complications other than a little jaundice for The Artist. The Writer came so fast that we almost didn’t make it to the hospital. The Boss will say that I am telling stories when I say that we were going to play bingo that night. After The Writer was born she told me to go because she knew I would win.
I did win $100.00 and went next door and had a few drinks to celebrate. The Writer nags me about drinking all the time, go figure.
I also got propositioned (in a nice way, and not the first time) by another Sergeant I had worked with for a couple years who my bosses had been attacking for about six months because he was a little different. So much for “Don’t ask don’t tell” and all the political hay that was made out of it. Lauren has some experience with that kind of treatment as well as briteyellowgun.

I thought I would be afraid when I passed out and ended up riding in an ambulance to the hospital and passed out again in the emergency room, but I was more interested in what was happening and what was being done for and to me.
I just kind of rode the wave in a what will be will be sort of way.

Now, as to what my government does for me, I think I prefer to regulate matters of the mind and spirit for my own self. The Gump and me agree on almost nothing, and the things we come close on are more his pandering than an actual meeting of the minds. I use that term loosely by the way.
I have no urge to commit suicide but the present administration seems to be hell bent on taking me to meet their maker.
I know that some of my friends and my own brother suffer from depression, and it is believed to be caused by a chemical imbalance. Why don’t they try to correct the imbalance rather than give them mood altering drugs to flatten there moods so they basically stop feeling?
I know I am simplifying a complex medical condition but I can dream for magic if I want.
If you can’t dream what’s the point?
The Government that we have allowed to take over our lives wants us to live in terror of the boogeyman out there in the rest of the world and the one here at home that voices dissent of government policies.
I also think their actions have caused a lot of people to become depressed (maybe not clinically) about the future.
I then start jumping around the internet and see that there are a lot of people who are fighting in their own way for a better tomorrow.
Then I see how the powers that be promise these things and then forget once their positions are secure.
I think that the people who died on September 11th 2001 were a small percentage of the losses suffered to terrorism in the last five years. Without counting the massive losses of civilian life in both Afghanistan and Iraq I keep remembering that we have lost more of our people in foreign lands than we did in the towers and Pentagon, and jets that day. The survivors of the dead from that day have been honored and paid huge amounts of money for their loss. What of PFC Smith’s family?

The response I hear when I ask that question is that they were volunteers.
Well, I been there and done that and if the government uses lies and political games to get our troops into a no win situation where all they get to do is die, then they have broken faith with the volunteer military.
The backdoor draft has been in use for three years and the recruitment goals and figures have been jiggered to make it look like there is not a manpower problem but most people are not as stupid as the Gumpsters think they are.
I have a son who is 17. That’s The Artist. He has no desire to die so some oil company CEO can have a 400 million dollar retirement package.
I knew I wasn’t very focused when I started this post but sometimes you just have to rant.
Fear is the most reliable tool the politicians have to control people. If you think about it the tools they do have are pretty crude and play on basic emotions.
Must be why I try not to have any.
Then again as always I could be full of Shit.

I don’t know what I’m writing about today.
I wish I could be like Jackiesue or Babs and come up with something that would interest all my friends but today I can only lament the fall of the Reds.
They had a real chance this year but the last month has been a train wreck.
At least the new owners have started to spend the money to make them better.
I am down right now.
About like JS is when the Cowboys have a bad season .
It is better than the last few seasons though.
I need to find a new way to share my feelings.
I hate to be put in a corner about how I feel about you.
I’m a guy so I don’t tell people what I feel.
I read what my friends post and wish I could express myself the way they do.
I’m just a putzs who sometimes writes something that gets the attention of others.
I see what the Gump and all his friends are doing and I remember that there are more Americans dead in Iraq than died on 9/11 and I wonder. Whose interests are being served?
I think about next November and wonder if my vote will be counted (I do live in Ohio after all.)
Blackwell, who has been accused of fixing the election in 2004, is running for Governor, and Ney has confessed to corruption with the same people who are bribing the rest of the people in Congress
The voting machines are rigged and the people running are hand picked by the people they are replacing.
I guess I am having a little trouble believing that anyone is looking out for the little guy and don’t think that it will matter anyway.
Tomorrow has to be a better day.
But then there is always cheese.

Well, that would be what my old aunt Millie would say if she existed.

I have been neglecting my friends for my own enjoyment.

I should say one of my other enjoyments. I am an addict of NASA TV when the Shuttle is flying.
Well, I check it even when they are on the ground.
For the last few days I have been watching space walks and deployment of new solar panels on the International Space Station and replacement of a faulty radio dish.
I have watched three spacewalks by some pretty dedicated people.
I guess you have to be if you trust the equipment.
It just happens that when I get off work the space walks are just getting started. The trouble is they run later than I normally stay up. That means that I get up later so I can’t even check my E-mail.
When I was a kid, when god was a teenager I used to send off postcards to NASA and I would get great poster sized pictures of the moon landing and spacewalks and they would even pay the postage.
Yes, I was a geek before the word existed.
Boy, NASA had a great P.R. department back then. Now they pay a million bucks for a bolt and cut it from the Public relations budget.
I can't keep up with my blog buddies.
I am trying to catch up but it seems like a lost cause.
I haven’t gotten anything in the mail from the Focus on the Family people yet.
I am not surprised. They are an unreliable bunch.
I really wanted to see that stuff about keeping my kids from becoming gay democrats with a haltered of god fearing people.
I hope that I can be a super blogger soon, though I never have been in the past.
I have been watching some movies tonight that have me a little woozy.
How about, Basic and then Swordfish.
If that doesn’t screw you up nothing will.
Now it is The Brothers Grimm. I am very confused. 

New Tom and Jerry Reality Show

You know that we just love precious metals - they always enhance the overall quality of virtually any item. We've got a Little Something extra for you today – the new "FU*K LIMITED" will definitely raise the frequency of every woman's sensual adventures.
Only 500 of these limited edition vibrators are out there in 24K gold and stainless steel – launched in May in conjunction with Design Week and ICFF they represent the thinking of Jimmy Jane CEO and creative director Ethan Imboden and CITIZEN:Citizen CoFounder Philip Wood. They have combined their expertise in exquisite design and luxurious sexual products and say the etched words "Fuck Design" can be interpreted as either sarcastic – do the words denounce a creative discipline - or celebratory – the objects raison d'étre. Regardless of how you perceive it, you'll want to experiment more in the arts after you try this 5.25" (13,5 cm) long, 0.67" (2 cm) diameter work of genius.
Sleek, silent and waterproof, this steel vibrator is sheer decadence; and according to W magazine, Esquire, and Women's Wear Daily: Young Hollywood's favorite new accessory. According to Ethan, 'discretion was an important aspect of the original design of the Little Something … with this etching, we bring the provocation back to the surface…'
Why steel? Well, its non-porous surface holds different temperatures making it perfect for those thrill-seeking souls who like to experiment. The vibrator's shaft is tuned to a virtually silent frequency designed to provide that deep, resonant sensation we all love. Since it's completely waterproof, you can take it in the tub, the pool, or chill it in the fridge.
With the temps we have these days, probably a smart thing to do…
Color: Steel
Size: 5.25" (13,5 cm)

I can't supply the link. I don't want to corrupt anyone.

I’m in a little bit of a quandary right now. I have so many subjects bouncing around in my melon that I think I have Blogger block.

That’s one thing I will say for the present administration and all the other groups trying to force their vision on everyone else in the world, they sure do give me what we used to call in the military a rich target environment. Of course in the Air Force we were usually in a club somewhere checking out the ladies, but enough of reliving old workouts.

The quandary, what to blog about?

I could talk about the Gump stating that the biggest challenge of his job is tying Sadam Husain with the 9/11 attacks. He said that in his interview with Katy on her new show.

How about the scientists flocking to test (and disprove) Sean McCarthy’s claim of discovering a way to generate a clean free form of energy using magnetic fields.

One that I would like to attend (strictly as a reporter) is the World Strip Poker Championship at the Cafe Royal in London.

I could talk about a new study that has determined that the human brain does not contain a single “God Spot” responsible for mystical and religious experiences.

I have to start submitting grant applications for studies.

Then again I could give my opinion of the fact that the IRS is hiring collection agencies to collect back taxes under $25,000.00 even though it will cost more than if they used their own agents who The Congress will not allow them to hire.

How about the huge recession that is going to hit the country in the next few months.

Remember the Swift Boat Veterans? Well, they now call themselves Veterans for Truth, and have been attacking U.S. Rep. John Murtha for criticizing the war in Iraq.

Pat Robertson has had a new revelation, He is a convert to global warming after this summer’s heat wave.

The story that worries me the most is the fact that the life in the oceans is devolving into a state that was dominant millions of years ago. That is unless you believe in intelligent design.

The one that I suppose I should get to work on is the predictions I have been reading that Nuclear war and the end of the world will commence on September 12th 2006.

Times a wastin.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
Anton Chekhov

By Rick Levine
You can feed off of the energy within a group. What others feel as tension is excitement to you. Stay open to big changes now, for if you attempt to hold on to the safety of old habits and structures, unexpected events may shake your world. If you let go of whatever is restricting you, the transition will be much smoother.

The first interesting horoscope I’ve had in a long time.
I guess I’m in for some sort of changes. I'm not sure I like the idea of feeding off of other peoples energy. Makes me think I’m destined to be a vampire. I already have the hours down pat.
I wonder what old habits and structures he is talking about. I keep telling people that I’m not set in my ways and don’t live life in a rut.
I bought a ticket for tonight’s Mega Millions drawing. Maybe that’s the big change he’s talking about. It’s only $95,000,000 though, not sure I could get by on that.
Now I have to wait and see.
My fortune is a little strange too.

Your fortune for today...
Someone wants your body

So if I win the lottery I might have enough to cause someone to be interested in my body.
I just hope it’s not a medical school.

Political Poopy
Even he, to whom most things that most people would think were pretty smart were pretty dumb, thought it was pretty smart.

Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt, p. 205

I am going to be lazy again and post something I found on the web.
I can only imagine that the Secret Service use the guarding of the Presidential toilet as a Shit detail. Sorry couldn’t resist.
I am just finishing the last of the Lord of the Rings movies. I wanted entertainment that was more peaceful than the real world.

Even Bush's Feces & Urine
Are Classified Top Secret
All Of It Captured And Flown Back From Europe
By Wayne Madsen

Even Bush's crap is classified top secret. According to our Austrian sources, Austrian newspapers are currently abuzz with special security details of George W. Bush's recent trip to Vienna. Although the heavy-handed Gestapo-like security measures meted out to Viennese home owners, business proprietors, and pedestrians by US Secret Service agents and local police before and during Bush's visit received widespread Austrian media attention, it was White House "toilet security" ("TOILSEC"), which has Austrians talking the most.

The White House flew in a special portable toilet to Vienna for Bush's personal use during his visit. The Bush White House is so concerned about Bush's security, the veil of secrecy extends over the president's bodily excretions. The special port-a-john captured Bush's feces and urine and flew the waste material back to the United States in the event some enterprising foreign intelligence agency conducted a sewage pipe operation designed to trap and examine Bush's waste material. One can only wonder why the White House is taking such extraordinary security measures for the presidential poop.

In the past, similar operations were conducted against foreign leaders to determine their medical condition. However, these intelligence operations were directed against dictators in countries where even the medical conditions of the top political leaders were considered "state secrets."

The Israeli Mossad conducted one such operation against Syrian President Hafez Assad when he visited Amman, Jordan in Feb. 1999 for the funeral of King Hussein. The Mossad and its Jordanian counterpart installed a special toilet in Assad's hotel room that led not to a pipe but to a specimen canister. Assad suffered from diabetes and cancer and the operation was designed to discover the actual medical condition of the ailing leader.

During Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev's visit to Washington in 1987, the CIA reportedly placed a special trap under a sewage tank to collect the Soviet leader's bodily waste for analysis.

More recently, the CIA was reported to have collected waste samples from Ugandan President-dictator Yoweri Museveni's toilet when he visited Washington.

Even Bush's toilet paper was flown in from the U.S. Air Base at Ramstein, Germany. In addition, Bush's food was flown in from the United States and tested with special chemicals before he ate it. Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, who was shot by a firing squad in 1989, was the last major European leader to constantly use a food tester. The last frequent state visitor to Vienna, who always relied on a food tester, was Adolf Hitler.

Now who's full of shit?

What happens if all accountability for your actions is removed?
What if there is no guilt?
These are questions that have been bouncing around my melon for the last week or so. The reason is a couple of press releases that I read.
That seems to be the way I blog. I read something and then let it
fester in what I call my brain until I spew it out in a little rant.
That’s the nice thing about a blog; even if nobody reads it you still get the benefit of the venting.
I have been reading some of the official statements coming from the Vatican.
Before you say I think God or Goddess is dead understand that I just think they are a little too busy to worry about the likes of me.
Anyway, Father Gabriele Amorth, who is Pope Benedict XVI’s chief exorcist, (How do you get that job?) says that Hitler and Stalin were possessed by the Devil.
I don’t deny that they were evil men along with a lot of their supporters but I balk at possession by the devil.
It seems to be an excuse, and an easy way to justify anything.

Anyway this fella says that they were possessed.
I think about that time, the war and all the horror that it involved and I have to wonder why the church didn’t put more priority on exercising the devil from the leaders of two of the three European countries who were on the road to world conquest. The third was Italy the home of the Vatican. Many people forget that Russia was an ally of the Third Reich.
I find this a quant belief of a backward people even though I have to wake up The Boss in an hour to go to Mass. Lucky she doesn’t read my blog. Oh well, to each his own.

Secret Vatican documents say that Pope Pius XII Attempted a long distance exorcism of Hitler which, duh… failed.

They claim that long distance praying and exorcism very rarely work, though praying for people works. Huh?

This guy also has spoken out against J. K. Rowling and the Harry Potter books, saying that they contain numerous references to magic, the satanic art.
He says, “Behind Harry Potter hides the signature of the king of the darkness, the devil.”

So, the single most influential works that get children to read which makes it easier to learn in the future is a product of the devil.
I think about the fact that Hitler and Stalin were possessed by the Devil and it occurs to me that they are just like the kids that have had a rough start to life who use that as a defense in court to justify the crimes that they have committed. They have found a simple excuse.
Father Amorth is said to have carried out more than 30,000 exorcisms.
I haven’t been able to find any figures on how many were a success.

In other news, Pastor Leonard Ray Owens of Fort Worth Texas has been indicted by a grand jury for rape.
A 22 year old woman who was a member of the Pastor’s prayer group says that he told her that she had a sex spirit and lesbian demon inside her that needed to be cast out.
Now for an inside look at a real exorcism, he had her lay on the floor and began yelling at her saying, loose her in the name of Jesus. He then proceeded to pull down her pants and commanded the demons to come out. Then he climbed on top of her, and putting on a condom raped her.
Owens, a self proclaimed prophet ordered her to clean up and read Psalm 105:15, which says to do no harm to prophets.
He did it again a month later.

Hey, he has the perfect defense when he goes to trial.
The devil made him do it.

Then again, I might be full of shit.
