Bits and pieces

It's cold and anybody who thinks this is caused by man made global warming is an absolute idiot.

Otherwise the good news is that this should drastically reduce the number of ticks, flees and snakes. Or anything that is old and or sick and can't get inside. The squirrels are digging furiously trying to find the nuts they buried last fall. I'll feed them tomorrow and refill the bird feeder.


That's from 2010 and we don't have any snow but you get the idea. No you don't. That was around 30. It's now 8.

Speaking of cold. I have a bad cold. Did all the stuff, still caught one.

Patience is a virtue

On October 12 I mailed a package Int'l First Class to France. It didn't arrive when it should have so tracking was in order.

It first went to Puerto Rico who returned it to Int'l sort in Miami who then sent it to France who then sent it to Brazil who then returned it to France who delivered it to the house on 1/25.  105 days.

Not a record, I'm sure, but a pretty good average.


"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

“It’s the presumption that Obama knows how all these industries ought to be operating better than people who have spent their lives in those industries, and a general cockiness going back to before he was president, and the fact that he has no experience whatever in managing anything. Only someone who has never had the responsibility for managing anything could believe he could manage just about everything.” - Thomas Sowell in Reason Magazine

Let me translate this


“Schools ... violate Federal law when they evenhandedly implement facially neutral policies and practices that, although not adopted with the intent to discriminate, nonetheless have an unjustified effect of discriminating against students on the basis of race," read the letter. "Examples of policies that can raise disparate impact concerns include policies that impose mandatory suspension, expulsion, or citation (e.g., ticketing or other fines or summonses) upon any student who commits a specified offense — such as being tardy to class, being in possession of a cellular phone, being found insubordinate, acting out, or not wearing the proper school uniform.”

Blacks must receive special treatment.

I wish I had written this



I am not against Somalis or Muslims. I feel compassion for those who’ve never been allowed the privilege of free will, which our Creator so graciously provided to humanity. Plus, they themselves suffer cruelly under sharia law. Rather, I am against the ideology that most of them have been raised to subscribe to. Islamic ideology compels its adherents to agitate, overtly and covertly, to subvert all the world to Allah and sharia law. I take offense at that, and I am appalled and repulsed by the kind of ‘fruit’ Islam produces. And I care about the kind of world that I pass onto my children.

Good things happen to those who waits and catches.

THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI
We're the battling boys of Benghazi
No fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell
Defending our country we loved so well. It wasn't our job, but we answered the call,
fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty Countrymen from the jaws of fate
Led them to safety, and stood at the gate. Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
But we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
So we fought, and we fought, and we fought 'til we died. We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
But Barack Obama didn't give a damn.
Just two dead seals who carried the load No thanks to us.........we were just "Bumps In The Road".
