A Dark Day Made Worse by Rain

IMG_1580

Dreary December days bring on depression. I am one who needs sunlight to survive, and today was one of those dark days made worse by rain. The only bright spot was watching my bride eat one of her classic breakfasts. Usually she has a pretend breakfast. She will set out a number of things like a banana, an egg, juice, rice crispy square, and anything else that might suit her fancy. I’ll chug down my bowl of cereal with milk and a side of coffee. We spend time together, then she will get up to get her bathrobe so she won’t spill on her good clothes. By the time she returns I have finished, and I am cleaning up. She does the same thing, and puts all her stuff away, without tasting a single thing. I know better than to comment, I just shrug and ignore her lack of interest in eating. This morning I had eggs, so she said she would have an egg too. That means hard boiling eggs to please her palette. In the meantime my stomach growls loudly while waiting for those eggs to harden. It takes seventeen minutes to boil an egg hard. Then, there is a cool down and finally removal from the shell. Meanwhile, my two fried eggs are still in the shell waiting to hit the fry pan..
This morning Peg waited for the hard-boiled eggs. I finally served her two hard-boiled eggs on a plate before I fried my eggs. When I finally sat down to eat she got up to get a cake from the fridge. She wanted a slice of strawberry chocolate cream cake with her egg. I had to slice her a piece before I could finally attack my cooled fried eggs. Who eats strawberry chocolate cream cake with hard-boiled eggs? Not me for sure. I could not resist photographing the event. Today was a day when she actually ate breakfast. Oh, by the way do you see the orange juice container on the table, but a glass of Pepsi next to her plate.?

Lord help me, please.

Police Harassment Answered

Black-Muslim-protest-vs-police-brutality-Gordon-Parks-1963

A friend sent me this humorous, but very serious piece today, and it kind of answers my questions about why and how police harass citizens . The recent news from Ferguson, Missouri and later from New York about police brutality against blacks made me wonder if my assessment of racism is correct. For the record, my assessment is this; We are not a racist nation anymore. Yes, many white people still do not care for blacks, but we are not racist. Not liking and hating are two different things. Believing that blacks are inferior is racist. I don’t like many blacks because they behave differently than me. Those that behave like me are good people. I also do not care for white people who behave differently than me, does that mean I am a racist, or a white supremacist? No, it means that I prefer to hang with people who have similar morals and character as I do.

For centuries people from all parts of the world have disliked each other for various reasons. The color of one’s skin is one reason that makes humans cautious about liking them. Right now in Africa, there are some very racist blacks who hate whites. Many African countries exploited by white traders, plantation owners and such actively seek to right wrongs by hating whites. Slave traders are, in my opinion, the most racist on the face of Earth. They seem to believe that they are so superior as to make their slave captures sub-human. So who should the blacks of America be upset with? Current, slave traders are number one.  They are the people who believe in treating their product as sub-human by exploiting them. Blacks are not alone in this matter, women of all races sold into sex slavery fit into the same group.

So who should the blacks of America be demonstrating against? Certainly not cops, nor any non-black who lives here. Their demonstrations should point at their slavers called the Democrat party who have exploited them with their policies of freebies and broken families.

It will take another hundred years to straighten out this mess, but we can do it by eliminating socialism and those who promote it. In the meantime, I agree with the author of the piece below. I could not verify the original author, but this version of the story seems to have the longest life on the net.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Recently, the Chula Vista, California Police Department ran an e-mail forum with the local community (a question and answer exchange) with the topic being, “Community Policing.” One of the civilian e-mail participants posed the following question:
“I would like to know how it is possible for police officers to continually harass people and get away with it?”
From the “other side” (the law enforcement side) Sgt. Bennett, obviously a cop with a sense of humor replied:
“First of all, let me tell you this…it’s not easy. In Chula Vista, we average one cop for every 600 people.
Only about 60% of those cops are on general duty (or what you might refer to as “patrol”) where we do most of our harassing. The rest are in non-harassing departments that do not allow them contact with the day to day innocents.
At any given moment, only one-fifth of the 60% patrollers are on duty and available for harassing people while the rest are off duty.
So roughly, one cop is responsible for harassing about 5,000 residents.
When you toss in the commercial business, and tourist locations that attract people from other areas, sometimes you have a situation where a single cop is responsible for harassing 10,000 or more people a day.
Now, your average ten-hour shift runs 36,000 seconds long. This gives a cop one second to harass a person, and then only three-fourths of a second to eat a doughnut AND then find a new person to harass.
This is not an easy task. To be honest, most cops are not up to this challenge day in and day out. It is just too tiring.
What we do is utilize some tools to help us narrow down those people which we can realistically harass.
The tools available to us are as follow:
PHONE: People will call us up and point out things that cause us to focus on a person for special harassment.
“My neighbor is beating his wife” is a code phrase used often. This means we’ll come out and give somebody some special harassment.
Another popular one: “There’s a guy breaking into a house.” The harassment team is then put into action.
CARS: We have special cops assigned to harass people who drive. They like to harass the drivers of fast cars, cars with no insurance or no driver’s licenses and the like.
It’s lots of fun when you pick them out of traffic for nothing more obvious than running a red light.
Sometimes you get to really heap the harassment on when you find they have drugs in the car, they are drunk, or have an outstanding warrant on file.
RUNNERS: Some people take off running just at the sight of a police officer. Nothing is quite as satisfying as running after them like a beagle on the scent of a bunny. When you catch them you can harass them for hours to determine why they didn’t want to talk to us.
STATUTES: When we don’t have PHONES or CARS and have nothing better to do, there are actually books that give us ideas for reasons to harass folks. They are called “Statutes”; Criminal Codes, Motor Vehicle Codes, etc…They all spell out all sorts of things for which you can really mess with people.
After you read the statute, you can just drive around for a while until you find someone violating one of these listed offenses and harass them.
Just last week I saw a guy trying to steal a car. Well, there’s this book we have that says that’s not allowed. That meant I got permission to harass this guy. It’s a really cool system that we’ve set up, and it works pretty well.
We seem to have a never-ending supply of folks to harass. And we get away with it. Why? Because for the good citizens who pay the tab, we try to keep the streets safe for them, and they
pay us to “harass” some people.
Next time you are in my town, give me the old “single finger wave.” That’s another one of those codes. It means, “You can’t harass me.” It’s one of our favorites.
Hopefully sir, this has clarified to you a little bit better how we harass the good citizens of Chula Vista.
Police Harassment, Chula Vista, California style –

PSA-141205-Save the Monarchs

My garden club had a Christmas luncheon this past Wednesday and our president Kay Mac Neil presented each of us with a gift, a package of milkweed seed. She introduced a project to save the beautiful Monarch butterfly from extinction. Her letter explaining the project is below. Please read this and decide whether you will take part in saving the Monarch.

Besides finding and planting seeds in your backyard there is another thing you can do, stop buying cocaine. The Monarch winters in the high mountains of Mexico and cocaine growers are killing Monarch habitat. We can plant all the seed we want in the upper forty-eight, but if there is no winter home for the Monarch all we will have are yards full of milkweed. Not that milkweed isn’t a desirable plant but it is one that seeds by blowing fine cottony puff balls around the universe. I already have a yard lined by cottonwood trees which sends out puff balls in enormous quantities making it look like it is snowing in June. I like the orange and black Monarchs and will endure puff balls for their sake, but the cottonwoods have given them a bad name.

Why Are Blacks the Way They Are?

This essay explains in a most logical way how the Democrats have literally destroyed the black race in America.

Why did it take until 100 years after the Civil War, until 1964, to pass a Civil Rights Act? Because the Democratic Party would not take its boot off the neck of the black man until Martin Luther King made the black vote a political force. Dedic….

Get Me the Paper Bag, I’m Going To Be Sick

Every time I hear Obama speak he burns me up. The hypocrisy that spews from his mouth is record-setting. He will someday own the Guinness Book of Records as the most hypocritical President ever to lead a country. When I heard his speech to the people of Ferguson, Missouri about remaining peaceful, and his reiteration of “we are a nation of laws” I wanted to puke. How much longer must we endure this man in office? Yeah, yeah I know he has seven hundred and eighty-six days remaining in his legal term, but who is counting. I see that as seven hundred and eighty-six days of opportunity to further transform the greatest country on earth into a banana republic. If you voted for him twice, shame on you. I hope you are totally satisfied with the result. Are his failed policies really what you dreamed this country would be transformed into? If so, I feel sorry for you, and I will pray for you even if you are atheist or muslim you need prayerful help.

Pictures Dance on the Wall

The picture below spells a disaster in the making for sure. Vision this train of oil cars running through your backyard when one of them jumps the track and crashes into your swimming pool and explodes. One explosion begins another and thus the chain reaction begins a mile long disaster of flaming hot crude spewing thick black smoke for miles. I had the Canadian National run through my backyard within one hundred feet of the house. The scenario I described is easier to make happen than a potassium nitrate explosion in a deserted truck. All it would take is to loosen the bolts between sections of track to cause a derailment. Another problem I had with the CN is the noise they generated. Think about a mind numbing clickety-clack that goes on for ten minutes each time one of these mile long rains runs through. I hear the argument that I should have moved if I didn’t like the noise. Try selling a house with a railroad in the backyard. Eventually, I did sell and now I live one mile away from the same train. I still hear it, but not to the extent as when is ran through the backyard and all the dishes rattled on the table and the pictures danced on the wall.

Because of the ease with which a terrorist, or a prankster can cause a derailment, I agree one hundred percent with building the Keystone pipeline. Oh, I also had a pipeline buried in an easement between my house and the RR tracks. It was there for many decades and no one knew. There was no evidence of the pipeline except for the orange markers required by law.

When I bought the house a jungle of wild trees and shrubs covered the pipeline easement, and blocked the view of the trains. Then one summer a crew came through with a brush hog and chopped the living hell out of this mini forest. The reason? Federal Law required the pipeline company to have full view of the line from the air. They flew over in a helicopter looking for breaks in the line on a regular schedule. I lived there for twenty years and we never experienced a break.

Pipelines can become one with the environment if we choose. Yes I have heard about some that are so one-with-the-environment that they break and leak bad stuff into rivers. When a leak happens and the break is found the problem is quickly mitigated, usually without harm to anyone. That is, except for the time one spilled into a Oregon stream. A fly fisherman flicked his cigarette into the water and caused a an explosion that  blew his ass to kingdom come giving us another reason smoking is bad for your health.

Mail AttachmentSee the clear groove cut through the forest in the photo above? Where were all the tree huggers when the railroad built this line? I could hear all the trees crying in Illinois when this happened, yet it got built anyway.

If Warren Buffet is smart as people say he is he will make a deal with the pipeline company to use his RR right of way for the pipeline. Think of all the work it would save and how many trees would be saved too.

 

The True Meaning

Wow! I struck gold today. Two gift videos from friends who thought enough to share some great feelings. This one is from Mike, a Lion friend. Sainsbury, an English company produced this video.  The sentiment in the story is one which we should all feel and share. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if the two sides of any issue would deal with a solution like the fellows in this movie. Enjoy.
