Skip to comments.DUBOB 11- more tales from the Dark UnderBelly Of the Beast...
Posted on 01/31/2003 5:07:21 PM PST by backhoe
At the request of members, I am restarting those "Tales from the Dark UnderBelly Of the Beast"-- the stories and issues that the press and media either ignore, won't even talk about, or will mention once and forevermore claim "it's old news..."
Naturally, some will be stories which interest me, or things I think we all need to be aware of.
I am experimenting with a minor change in presentation- when I can, I will cut to
with a keyword or two and see what kind of links to "mainstream" stories I can find in contrast to what we see here and on other sites.
May I remind you of a couple of points to bear in mind?
Each link usually has many other links within- follow them all to get "the rest of the story."
Don't forget the "open multiple browsers" trick with control-n -- this allows you to hold your place with one, and use the others to follow links, run searches, etc.
Rather than go back and rehash old links, I'll give you links to the original posts here:

Prayers for you and your family.
So very sorry for this grievous loss.
May God wrap His loving, gentle arms
around you and hug you close. Prayers
up for you.
Thanks for the bump.
The Kids & I are sorting out what remains of our life, here:
Whether I’ll ever return to The Dark Underbelly is a good question.
Return to the Dark Underbelly...
I may restart this-— and if I do, I will send FR money at every fundraiser. Because I believe that if you use a board much, you ought to give it some money.
It won’t be much- I’m surviving- sort of— on my Dead Wives survivors benefits- yes, I hate SS, it’s a Ponzi Scheme- but until one of those J-O-B-S Kommander Zer0 promised materializes it is all I have.
I love my true friends at out Canadian sister site, Free Dominion, and I have been there since Miss Emily, my wife of 25 years died unexpectedly last summer— her story, and mine is here:
But recently, when I thought Rick Perry was the best hope of kicking Duh!1 out of office, I posted this:
And every America-hating troll, disruptor, and sycophant came and shat on it. And me.
I asked Connie & Mark- the Sysops there— to clean it up.
If they do, fine- I’ll stay om Free Dominion.
If they don’t?
I’ll come back here, give FR the money I would have given FD, and post all the stuff I think you ought to know about...
Like I did before my World ended.
It’s all the same to me- I have not a thing left to lose that I care about.
So stay tuned- like I’ve said about America’s future?
It’s about to get interesting...
As I’ve mentioned on our Canadian sister site, “If you don’t visit certain blogs & forums, you aren’t well informed.”
The Make Believe Media ( hattip” Ace of Spades ) helped create, and sustain, the clown in the White House. Everything they present centers around two things:
1)- selling you stuff you may not want or need...
2)- protecting their creation- Duh!1
Instapundit should be one of your first stops on the InterToobs-

HOWS THAT HOPEY-CHANGEY STUFF WORKIN OUT FOR YA? Stagflation signs surface in bonds, stocks, gold.

WASHINGTON EXAMINER: Obama HHS Caught Campaigning For Democrats.
IS THE NEXT DOMINO TO FALL . . . Canada?
NOT-SO-MAGIC BUS: The bad news for President Obama is, hes lost his mojo: The rock star of 2008 has become just another workaday politician. The worse news is, this is all hes got.
If you will read my commentary at the links to FD, you will see what I think- that Half-White ( I’m part Red Man, so spare me the RAAACIST! slurs, they are worthless to me... ) Son of a Bitch has lost his glitter, and he’s flailing.
But a sitting “Precedent” is hard to defeat.
We have to work smart, or that SOB will get “4 More Years!” to wreck America.
And it’s pretty well wrecked, even now. Search my posts on FD and read my “man on the street” take of the desolation I see in my city. It is grim.
As I mentioned in my return here, if you don’t read certain blogs & forums every day, you aren’t well informed.
Free Republic still has the best mix of “stuff you need to know”— always has.
The Belmont Club has some of the best essays- and commentors- on the web- scroll down, and read it all:
I, for one, am encouraged with your Return to the Dark Underbelly.
Welcome back. We need you in the fight.
I really may not have the heart to continue this, so here’s a list of places you ought to visit. Some cuss like pirates, so be advised. Most just have good commentary and links:
Thank you very kindly. I can't say how much, or what, I can contribute anymore. I really am a lot better, despite losing the only thing I cared about in the world.
But after being shat upon by my "friends" at our sister site, where I spent the last year, my heart is really not in the fight.
I joined both chapters of the local Tea Party- in memory, of my Emily, who died before we could join- and I'll see what I can do.
The Kid ( her Golden Retriever "puppy"-- he's going on five, now ) and I have to make our way in the world as best we can, so I may not have time or inclination to do much online.
I will do what I can.
But thanks so much, for welcoming me back.
Just a small, personal note?
The latest adventures of The Kid & I are here:
Goto the last page and scroll back for more- but?
Last May I learned, belatedly, that my Miss Emily had had silent heart disease all along.
When I learned that, the Terrible Dark Cloud that lay over my every waking moment lifted off me.
I threw Cole-boy in the car and went to the Island to see face to face the widow of an old friend of mine. Known each other not all that well, but for 31 years.
She’s a cat lady & I’m a dog person- so we’ll see how it works out, but? It’s interesting...
I sit her house when she’s away, and gave her keys to mine. She has a lot of troubles- I don’t care, except I’d make them go away if I could. Everybody has troubles. Every one- you can’t escape that, it is part of being human.
I will go to my grave loving and missing my Miss Emily— 25 years of being married is a lifetime.
She’s gone, forever, to the Sea...
Say a prayer for Miss Emily- she really was the best friend I ever had. While you’re doing that, say one for johnny & Miss MaryAnn- that we find our way to a good place, separately... or together.
I had bookmarked this thread long ago and just came by to tell you I miss you..
I lost my husband of 28 years many years ago ..I wanted to die. He had a heart attack while we were on vacation..
I am so glad the dark cloud lifted for you...Grief is a terrible thing..
Your writing is beautiful.
I too was hoping Perry would make it...and took a lot of grief for it!
Just wanted you to know you and your kindnesses and valuable contributions are not forgotten.
Take care of yourself.
A huge hug, backhoe.
And a prayer for you and everyone you love.
My kindest regards, and prayers to you. I sure know that "I'd just like to sink into the ground by them and be dead" feeling. It does get better, it just seems like it takes a thousand years in Hell to get there. Thanks for the kind words and I'm pulling for you.
Thank you- I deeply appreciate that.
Yes it does get better....and I thank God for it..
I am content.
"To Have and to Hold..."
You had him for 28 years...
For 25 I held Miss Emily and before that Miss Helen for seven years...
Today I am going to throw Miss Emily's beloved Border Collie in my truck and go over to the Island to help Miss MaryAnn relocate her businesss... she held that old friend & neighbor of mine for 30 years...
It seems like we never get to hold the ones we love long enough- something always gets in the way... but like the chorus line in "The Other Man's Grass is Always Greener" goes,
"...just be thankful for what you've got..."
That is lovely- thank you. We got her moved out- now we have to set up a new office at home. We’ll get it done.
