    I have two daughters.Both have the highest I.Q.’s possible.My first born graduated high school at fourteen,went on to cosmetology school,graduated at seventeen.At which time she enlisted in the Navy.She is Bi-Polar.She can be as sweet as can be and in an instant be so evil so as to be scary and does not care who or what she hurts.I have had to distance myself and my family for fear of harm coming to them.She is evil and very cunning,which combined is a recipe for disaster.
    Thankfully my other daughter is a successful attorney with numerous degrees.I love them both the same,but on the same token I tread very softly.Yes it pains me.

    Training in the early 70’s was much the same.My personal belief, from what I know,yes I believe troops will fire if ordered.Sad but true.Straight leg infantry for six years,hopefully times have changed.If soldiers find out their loved ones have been killed,anger will prevail.

    GOT Flamed last election for reminding people how skery and McCain were in charge of the POW reports[many still coming in]and refused to acknowledge them.Families were beside themselves.Shredders were in full mode.How could the worst of the worst be in charge?It was reported the powers that be wanted to make it all go away.Much more to the story but must do your own research,WARNING You will be disgusted. When people I know ask,why so fired up.I say,It could have been me.The highest Officer's imprisoned there stoutly recommended McCain be Court Marshaled at the very least.

    Jim had been warning us for years.Mit was from Masshole and allowed the most liberal teachings to go forward and then tried to cover his ass.Gay marriage,not my fault,Romneycare,O used as a format.I believe it would have same old same old with a different name.Yeh,I voted for him thinking he would grow a set of nads,surprise!,NOT.He was weak,in his thoughts that he had it in the bag.And thinking the dems would not cheat,what a turd!If the government was not so corrupt,I believe he would have won by a landslide.And he concedes without a fight.County’s voting more than are registered??? military votes late,plane crashed and whatever excuse that worked,it comes down to,you get what you pay for.May God have mercy on our souls.

    Had a quack doctor who initially diagnosed it as a spider bite as she already had two.Treated the spot on her stomach as past history.I spent a lot of time researching myself and found that when MRSA left untreated,tends to colonize.She had four spots on her stomach after one month of treatment before they did biopsies.Instead of a good diagnosis at first where she could have taken pills to combat the infection,It turned into three days in the morning for drips,three hours after work for another one.Veins collapsing,for one week.And she continued working.Pin this shot,all were given in the ER!!I am not a smart man,but if in a serious accident,would not want to be exposed to that situation.PS,ALL MRSA patients were treated there.Scenario,bad car accident,taken to ER,where that is prevalent.Do you trust them???HELL NO>

    I was flamed last election year.I did not vote.First time in a long time.The main reason was I despise McLame to the point of no end.I was enthralled with Gov.Palin as to me,she was a breath of fresh air.But the memories of McCain and Kerry being placed on a joint assignment concerning POW'S and what took place sickened me.destroying records of known POW”S that were still alive,discounting actual live accounts,etc.Shredders were working overtime in their HQ.Outside,Parents were beside themselves wanting any or all of what became of their loved ones.Our Govt.just wanted it to GO AWAY as it did.Do not disregard the fact that the two highest ranking soldiers in the camp wanted him court marshaled for High crimes and misdemeanors,amongst others.Check it out.War Hero my butt.I could have been one of the captives.I voted with my heart.NOT THIS TIME!We,as a people,are in big trouble.Along with our off springs and theirs to.We need strong leaders,not REMP ones.72-78 US ARMY INFANTRY,I could spot them a mile away.They were as bad as the enemy.Sad to say,their knowledge cost many men their lives May God look over them all,no matter what branch they belong to.It is all connected.We are one means just that.God bless.

    In Texas,Coyotes are open game.The damage they instill is horrendous.I have always been partial to German Shepperd's,which is similar in looks to a Cayote.After witnessing the damage they can inflict I lost all feelings for them[cayotes].Ranchers despise them and it is an unwritten rule,if you see them shoot them.Had a friend who had a mare.He showed up in time to save the foal,but not the mother.He kept it[I think out of sympathy],but the left side was disfigured. Growing up on a farm in upstate NY,when the corn was ready to put in,there was a bounty on Raccoons.They were very destructive.They would take a bite of one,throw it down and move on.It was shocking how much damage they could do in one night.We would hunt them on horseback at nigh with dogs.Pelts went from four dollars to twenty five depending on the Quality.Till the EPA and all the number people stepped in.Put the farmers out of business.Had to have feed for the winter.What was once beautiful farmland went obsolete seemingly overnight.

    In the very early seventies,being an infantryman,training involved riot control.With Woodstock,hippies and all that,it was not uncommon to be trained to hate these anti Americans, and prior to any ]New Studies],there were many soldiers that would not hesitate to open fire on there own countrymen. My take is that after many family members who were killed,will have a very profound impact on the soldiers whose families were decimated from their own fire. It is a very slippery slope.God bless them all!!!!

    WORKED IN A body shop some years ago.Had a ten year old wolf/Shepperd mix that lived there.Did not care for anybody much,but on the weekends,his food bowl was empty along with the toilet water.
    After about three months,I could not stand the treatment he was getting.He took a liking to me as I fed him scraps and fast food.One three day weekend ,I was just devastated at his pitiful condition.So i told the owner I was taking him home.It was explained to me how vicious he was etc.
    At the time I was driving a jeep and I told him if he could make it in,he was going home.He did.Wife freaked out but my daughter was popular and had many girlfriends over all the time.He would sit in the backyard proud as can be,tongue hanging out.The kids would run by pet him and move on.Only hangup was,if you wanted to pick up your child,you had to get me or the wife to approve.Once the neighbors figured it out,they loved it!I was so proud of him and I think he was of me RIP,HOBO

    I had a music store back in the eighties from where I gave music instructions on a certain night.There was a room for that purpose only.There were 9 girls and 3 boys.The amount of knowledge they could absorb was stunning.
    But,I had one student that DID NOT WANT to learn.Dad pressured her[even though he played]to have her take lessons from me.For the student,it was a traumatic experience.Her mother tried to make me give her lessons so I tried to allow her mom to sit in.No go.If the child made a mistake, the first thing she did was look at her mom.It became very sad as all the child did was cry.I finally told her mom,no more.I can and will not force anyone to play if the desire was not there.After her mother screaming at me and more or less threaten me,it was over.Poor child.At any time,[which i never gave much thought to]any student could have made an ugly made up story about me[he touched me!]and my world would never have been the same.In this day and age would I ever do it again??NO WAY
    Same with Scouting.I feel after all the extensive Military training I have under my belt I could teach the skills of first aid, compass,all the basics a scout needs.No Way It only takes one incident to derail your life.Or one spoiled little child who is mad for whatever reason or another.[No playstation,T.V.,etc.]

    I had at one time a dislike for shooting coyotes as they resembled a German Shepperd which is one of my favorite types of dog.Had many over the years.
    Then,one day I heard a terrible scream come from the backyard.It was a coyote making off with my little daschund that was my constant companion for 12 years.As I was screaming and trying to divert the coyote,it stopped with my dog in it”s mouth turned and looked at me and disappeared into the brush.
    That was all it took.I built a 25 ft. deer stand with a place to sit with shade,and when I am not busy,drag an ice chest up and with my 223,with Leopold scope,and some binocs,watch over the area,and shoot them.They are crafty,but a buddy of mine enjoys helping out once in a while.Sometimes we get lucky,sometimes don”t.
    But the cold ones are a good way to pass the time.Oh,and we use our coyote distress callers to invite them in!
    Next one I get will be named goat granny even if is a male!!Regards.

    Alaska has filed suit against the feds for not allowing culling as they are taking over wildlife.Killing because they can.Not for food.but practice.
    The main reason,other than the numbers,is the interbreeding with the coyotes which in turn,turns out a very vicious animal with the natural instincts of both.Not good.
    In Texas,it is a shoot on sight for coyotes as the damage they do is ugly.Very cunning and viscous.
    Some of the damage I have seen to livestock,especially horses,is sad.
    When a Rancher puts hi or her livestock out to pasture,they expect return on their investment.Coyotes and such can put then in the hole.
    I have 400 acres undeveloped behind my property and they are getting closer by the year.I do not even want to go into the diseases they bring.Rabies being at the top.
    Oh yes,they breed as fast as they can.
    I cull as many as I can.

    I own a Bersa Thunder in 380 and at 15 ft with 102 grain hollow points,it will go through a 50 gallon barrel.In one side and out the other.The exit holes are impressive.
    Very accurate out of the box and only jammed once during break in.It takes a few rounds to break it in though as it is pretty tight.Sadly,the ammo has been hard to get where I am though,but it is improving.35 dollars for a box of 50.
    I was impressed with the gun though and not disappointed at all.

    Sorry for not replying sooner.It looks a little similar to the shell picture in the bottom,but with different coloration.
    It measures 9 and 3/4 inches long and about the same when measured from the’foot’as I call it to the top of the ‘wing ‘as I call it!
    The wife collects them and there is another one beside it that is six inches long that has multiple ‘horns’around it.
    Both are very pretty especially the large one that has a mother of pearl look to it.
    As you may have well known by now I am no Marine Biologist!
    The colors do not look like the ones you posted.She has one that I have never seen and it is strange looking.
    The small 6 incher is a dark tan/light brown,and the other is dark tan.
    If I knew how,I would send a picture.Hope it helps and if you have an inkling as to what lived in it,i would be curious to know.
    We used to hide messages to each other in the big one!Later,xarmydog.

    My wife is deathly afraid of water.On a vacation in Corpus Christie,she found the nerve to venture out about up to her ankles.
    She stepped on a sea shell that was huge.She picked it up and rinsed it out.
    Before we left the beach,she was offered a large sum of money for it,which she declined.When I explained to her what had lived in it and what might happen if she had been stung,she was horrified.
    It is on display along with other various sea things in our bathroom.
    It has been awhile since we have owned it,but I still check it out every once in a while.Just in case!PS,It is huge!

    I feel I must reply to all.Remodeling my house,I had a Home Depot credit card.The place I was trying to do business with was large.
    After numerous trips back and forth which was about a 250 mile round trip,I discovered that you were on your own in this huge store.
    I could not help but notice that many employees could disappear within plain sight and no one noticed.
    Ask for help,just one minute and poof!GONE!
    The worst place I have ever been.The employees could disappear and no one noticed.
    The amount of money that store alone lost because of that,I could not believe.

    I believe that if the Government were to fire on their own people,bad things would happen.Fathers,Mothers,and many family trained prior service,would not take kindly to that.
    They would avenge and woe be unto the people in charge who issued the order.
    Training during the Viet Nam war,many tacticts were taught to control riots,crowds,etc.,being a young grunt it was your duty,which many fellow soldiers followed through without any questions.Including me.
    Being a few years older now,yes I would have some questions as to the orders given.
    Example,If a soldier finds out a member of his family who he or she loved to pieces was gunned down by his fellow soldiers,how far is his loyalty going to drop??
    Is any REAL MAN or WOMAN going to be able to do their job?
    Not unless they have their own issues.

    MY wife had been bitten twice on one leg each within two weeks of another.Nasty wound is an understatement.She will forever have scars on each leg that are the size of half dollars.
    She had thought she had been bitten on her stomach which the local hospital had misdiagnosed for a month.it was then they decided to do a biopsy after it had colonized into four groups.
    She had to undergo intravenous treatments that consisted of three hours in the morning and three hours in the evening for one week for treatment of MRSA.A very nasty procedure when if caught early,a pill would have taken care of the problem.
    The treatments were given in the emergency room of all places.
    Many nurses have had it and they say it comes wit the job.
    PS,when the wife was first bit,
    we tore the house apart.We did anything and everything short of poisoning ourselves.
    To no avail.
    We tore the hose apart completely remodeling from top to bottom.
    No work.
    As I type,I have six bites under my armpit.Not to brag,our house is immaculate and I have become the bug Special Forces in our house.My next option is to line our closets with ceder.If anyone has a better idea,We would appreciate it.
    PS,We live in West Texas,Thanks and sorry for the long spiel.

    Been awhile but I can say that the Brown Recluse in older times was referred to as’The spider that hides’.
    Ugly wound that takes some time to heal.
    She received what was interpreted as another on her stomach.They treated it as a spider bite for one month.Then it colonized into four holes.
    They did a biopsy and found out it was MRSA.
    Seven days of three hours in the morning of a power full antibiotic and three hours in the evening for one week.All the while having to change the IV entrance as the anti-biotic was so HOT it kept collapsing her veins.
    If diagnosed properly in the early stages,all that she would have had to take was oral medicine.Rough time

    I wore a 45,with M-16,plus, and there was never a second thought about it.The families in the unit considered it part of the job.We slept,ate,crapped and did all of the normal activities and never gave it a second thought.It was part of our job and to think of all the ruckus now is comical.

    Wife WILL NOT inflate a tire of any kind.She gets very nervous even passing Big rigs.
    We had a 1967 dodge Charger at the time that needed a front end alignment,but it was a Mopar,old and very expensive.
    I bought cheap tire knowing full well they would not last long.
    So one day as I was airing up the tires,the one on the right side exploded.
    I have aired up numerous tires over the years and to me it was just another deal.Until the tire exploded in my face.Thank goodness I was not hurt,but it gave me a new respect for tires and the people who work with them.
    PS,the tire did not look bad at all.
    Now when we travel,i get past Big Rigs as quickly as possible. In West Texas,the heat will wear out any good looking tire.The remnants from the vehicles blown out tires are referred to as [Alligator skins].Some entrails last for miles.They are the only things buzzards do not eat.[To the best of my knowledge!]

    The last two times while I was there,the dog[100lbs]kept lunging at me.I do not know if it was playing or not,but accepting the force of a dog that size was not easy.
    Yes I had one hand on a handgun at the time but it could have turned ugly at any time.Me being the bad guy of course.
    I love dogs,but I love my family more.
    If anything were to happen to my immediate family over a “short”visit,It would mean a divorce for sure.I am not a totalitarian per se,but doing something like that is unforgivable.
    I do feel sad that a once good breed of dog has been,more or less,ruined.

    My kids are are aware of the things you mentioned.They are very smart and I try to make them aware at an early age that,someday they will be on their own.
    I try not to influence them as to how they make their decision's,but i do want them to know they have the right to their opinions.
    I implicitly make them aware that looks are not everything.If it were,they would run at the sight of me!!
    Your reply was very well taken,and will be shown to my kids.
    Nine Grand children and three children.Thanks.

    I showed a picture of waxman to two of my Gran daughters.They were scared and asked me if he was a perv.[Short kid speak of pervert].
    I said I did not think so but was not sure.I explained to them that this man was one of many attempting to decide a major part of their future.
    One Grand daughter asked why should an old man be involved so much.
    The other Grand daughter made a nasty comment on his looks,to which I replied that was not very nice,but I believe his Mother still dresses him,as I assume they cohabited.[Could be wrong].
    They fortunately are very smart for their age and know the difference between Dems and Repubs.
    I sort of lied to them,and said,most Dems look like that.
    They had to all sleep in the bed wit Granny that night,while I slept on the couch.It was worth it!
  • Simple question. Do you trust CNN as a reliable source for information

    When I am in the VA hospital,in the waiting lounge,there are six televisions placed at various angles with nothing but CNN on.
    So ,one day I had enough and went outside for a cigarette and a woman started to admonish me on the hazards of smoking.
    I replied,it can not be any worse than the extreme rise in my blood pressure or the mental distress I endure watching a propaganda show.
    She went her way and i went mine.
    I have been in six Va hospitals and all show the same channel.
    I wonder why.

    Some years ago,Ann Coulter commented on how lopsided the show was.
    So I watched more intentionally than before.She was correct.
    If you are a male,and a woman makes an accusation,guilty or not,If you are male,sorry.
    They whip your ass in the interrogation room,while violating any and all of your civil rights to get a ‘confession’,defy all of any respect for the constitution,let alone the Bill of Rights,for the conviction.Yet they have cocktails to celebrate their success.
    My favorite part is when they are caught railroading innocent people.
    That happens a lot.

    My Mother passed away twenty years ago.Her funeral was held on Christmas day.
    The bright lights and splendor take on an entirely different meaning than they did before.
    It went from becoming one of the most anticipated times of the year,to one of the most dreaded.
    I try as hard as I possibly can to stay upbeat for the family,but sometimes i find it almost impossible.I do my duty and as soon as I can,I say my good-byes and retreat to the solitude of our home.
    So to all who have lost a loved one at this special time of year,May God bless you and give you the fortitude to persevere and carry on as I believe your family would want you to.
    I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy heartfelt New years.

    Not all that familiar with tax laws as most average people are not,but if the time limit for 1099’s are three years,[again I am assuming,]He should 1099 all of them and take the hit on fines and such over the legal time limit.
    I am probably wrong,but it might quiet some of them down,meaning the hookers and their attys.And,in the long run,save him some money.
    I have never been a fan of Tiger due to his I am all this attitude,he is the one who chose the plasticanated[sp]hookers
    I feel for the family.This will NEVER go away no matter how it is portrayed.
    I feel sad for the children and I find it hard to believe his wife was unaware of the situation.I hope she was.

    I could not believe some of the responses from”some of the so called Catholics”.
    A person who defiles a child deserves nothing but death.
    As for any prior good works?They were a false attempt to justify their actions which were nullified when they committed their first offense.
    It sounds like some people are attempting to wash this junk,as many were good worshiping congregation and have a hard time reconciling the fact that their Priest was a sicko.
    Many Hearts were broken in a way that can not be fixed.The horror of being married by one,Baptized,confession,etc.
    Pay them for their entertainment?!On God's dime?
