Obama got shunned for a prime time slot to tout his Obamacare. Oh, the inequity of it all. Cry me a river.

Had a really late call last night while covering for a friend. It was nearly midnight when I crawled home. Overslept this morning.

It's no fair that the greedy 1% have most of their wealth inequities.

If “income inequity” is a problem for you, you’re a commie.

Obama! We mused, how the heck would he
Deal with the income inequity?
Use his pen to raise wages
Go Commie in stages
He wouldn’t debate with Glenn Beck, would he?

Obama professes outrage over the alleged inequity of wealth in American Society. I profess outrage over the pervasive and corrosive iniquity of his Regime.


America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!

EAGLES UP! Once more unto the breach, my friends, once more!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Yesterday it got up to 81-at about 3am, a cold front came in-now it is 51, windy, and supposed to be back into the 40’s tonight...

It seems every other person
The drive-by media gives time
Claims thousands need to live
By using everyone else’s dime

Insurance, cellphones, etcetera-
They’re quite willing to rob
Taxpayers who say they’re lazy-
Get out there and find a job...

Inequity is their new buzzword-
But the evidence that I see
Is that those treated unjustly
Look a lot like you and me...

What will they do if a tom charges them? Something just obliterated an owl in my neighbor’s yard yesterday. We’re not sure what it was but it left very little evidence. Feathers and part of a shredded thorax. Pretty gruesome sight.

We had a family of eagles near the plant last year. The parents and two offspring. The father would hunt and the mother and kiddies would show up to feast on the leftovers. Fascinating to watch them up close.

The father had caught a rabbit or some such thing, the mother flew off and came back 5 minutes later with the offspring and they squared off with dad till he gave up and let them have the rest. Then mama and kiddies feasted. Cars were pulled over along the driveway and everyone was standing there on the side of the road watching and taking pictures.

Right now, I'm so fed up with the current situation in the country I just wish that this self-professed "champion" of inequity & promoter of iniquity exit the scene, and along with his First Yeti quietly get out of our lives, PERIOD.

I’ve walked up within 100 feet or so of a small flock or wild turkeys a couple of times on the riverbank in the last 10 days or so. They stared at me and walked off into the woods-but if it was Fall, I probably wouldn’t have gotten within 100 yards before they spooked-like they know when the season opens...
