Broken Contracts, and Remedies

Grumpa Joe:

Being from Illinois it will never happen in my state. Illinois is in the pocket of the Progressive statists and refuse to admit they brains of their own and the free will to chose a better path.

When my daughter was 18 and in an apartment for the first time, it was mid August and the A/C leaked water onto the carpet. Rather than fix the problem, the apartment maintenance just shut the A/C off. In October as the weather got cold the apartment got cold as well because shutting off the A/C also shut off the heat. I moved my daughter out of that apartment to another. The manager confronted her saying that she owed rent for the rest of the year. I Broken contracts are no longer bindingintervened. I informed him that even though I cosigned the lease, he would get nothing from me. The contract was broken when management simply shut the A/C off instead of fixing it.   The remedy for my daughter was to walk away from the broken contract.

I guess RAGBRAI riders don’t have to worry about adolescent snipers anymore.

They have gone too far. Did you know that under Iowa
law you are committing a criminal act if you teach
your child or grandchild to shoot a defensive handgun
if they are under the age of 14?

Ask 8 year old Natalie. Recently both she and
her father were kicked off a gun range because she
was firing a Walther .22 in violation of Iowa code
725.22(5)!

Her father claims his wife and himself had been
training their daughters to shoot for years and when
they go to a range his two daughters will fire almost
1,000 rounds through the Walther.

The Iowa Gun Owners are asking that we contact
Representative Clel Baudler and others who won’t
repeal this section of our state law and tell them
we are not happy campers.

Go here to learn what we can do to
help, see a video of the girls asking…

MARTIAL LAW ALERT: Obama CONFISCATES ALL APACHE ATTACK HELICOPTERS From The Governors of ALL 50 STATES

The Daily Sheeple

As if the Obama administration’s purchase of more than 2 billion rounds of ammunition, and nearly 3,000 urban tanks, along with their unprecedented (and highly illegal) domestic spyingprogram was not enough to convince you that the federal government is about to suspend the Constitution once and for all, the man who once vowed to run “the most transparent administration in history” has just rather inexplicably, ordered the U.S. Army to seize every Apache attack helicopter currently in use by the National Guard.

In all, the Defense Department will confiscate 192 Apaches from National Guard units around the country and give them to the active duty Army.

In exchange for the heavily armed and highly maneuverable choppers, Guard units will receive 111 UH-60 Blackhawk transport helicopters from the Army, Defense One reports.

God Is Not Dead

GND728x90banner

It is Good Friday morning and I awoke to a headline reading “atheist war on Easter.” I didn’t read it. I celebrated an unholy atheist holiday on April first, better known as April Fools Day. What the headline reminded me of is a post I had in mind to write last week but never did. I went to see a wonderful movie “God Is Not Dead.” All my life I have fought to learn new arguments to prove that God does exist. The one thread that remains in my mind is how it all got started. Not even the greatest mind of our time known as Stephen Hawking can out reason that one. Stuff just doesn’t happen out of nothing unless there is a Supreme Entity to seed it.

I recommend this movie for everyone, even atheists, especially atheists. At first, I didn’t think a movie about the philosophical argument about God could be entertaining and I delayed going. Yet, a voice inside me said “go.” I was glad because the story is intriguing and one sub-plots is comical. I won’t try to explain the story because it would give too much away, but it occurs inside a modern university and shows them feeding our kids bullshit by liberal, arrogant, know-it-all-professors with tenure. In my opinion tenure is an outdated idea in any school. Why do these people hide behind work rules that protect them from being canned. We have First Amendment rights to speak as we chose. Teachers don’t need tenure to protect them further.

The movie is not about tenure, it is about a professor who forces his ideas on students with a threat of a failing grade if they refuse to buy his theme of “God is  Dead.” In doing so, he denies his students from using their God-given brains from using their free will to accept or deny an idea.

What surprised me at the end of the film was a rolling list of lawsuits filed to protect First Amendment rights against the bully tactics of schools and teachers. The number is staggering.

Peg and I have seen many really great films this season, and we commend Hollywood for producing so many good stories with great actors and even better effects, but “God is not Dead” is the best film we have seen. I give it five stars, and recommend everyone see it.

The Voldamir Pudin Effect

On 13 May 2010, I posted a cartoon in which I stated “We are a Nation of laws that are convenient to enforce or to disregard depending on the advantage to the elected.

arizona-solution-100513

 

Recently, Senator Harry Reid’s son Rory supported the truth of my statement when he proudly proclaimed: “We believe in a country in which we are subject to laws and you can’t just ignore the laws we don’t like. I think clearly if state and local prosecutors look at this more closely, they’re going to find that he broke the law and he should be prosecuted. that we are a nation bound by law and we should prosecute those who break them.”

What Harry’s  son seems to conveniently forget, or has simply disregarded, is the fact that President Obama and his Attorney General disregard any law they don’t like. Obama regularly changes his signature health care law illegally. He choses to disregard the work requirement in the welfare law, and he has totally trashed the laws on illegal entrance to the country, the list goes on.

I have but one question? Why aren’t Eric Holder, and Barack H. Obama in prison for breaking the laws they don’t like? In each one of these law breaking instances Obama is bound by oath to the Constitution to work with Congress to change the laws to show the changes. He swore to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the land. Why hasn’t Obama been impeached?

Instead, we saw an army of heavily armed and militant Bureau of Land Management workers descend upon a Nevada ranching family for the mere act of trespass on supposed government land. Evidently, Obama must feel powerless against the likes of Voldamir Pudin, therefore, he must flex his federal muscles against a harmless American rancher trying to eke a living raising cattle.

How long will it be that one of many SWAT Teams from heavily bureaucratic agencies descend upon you for some minor infraction of some obscure law?  When will they break down your front door, and drag you in chains to jail for the infraction? Or worse, surround your home with a thousand armed bureaucrats with itchy trigger fingers and blow you to kingdom come.

More Capable of Picking Up Fast Women

Finally, I got to see some really old cars, some of them older than me. What really surprised me Saturday were two Buick’s one year apart which were identical models. Both were immaculately restored to perfection. Sadly, the show was so well attended that getting great pictures was nearly impossible, but I tried nonetheless.

The seventy-five year old Buick convertible with twin side mount spare tires has a rumble seat and straight eight engine producing 140 HP. Owner Gordy bragged about how his car would get to 110 mph in eleven seconds. That is impressive for a heavy pile of metal. Gordy’s Century is the same age as me, but in better physical condition, and more capable of picking up fast women.

Oh yes, there were a few other cars at the show too. The cutest was the Pepto Bismol pink Studebaker with it companion pink golf cart.

The car that really got my juices flowing is a highly modified 1937 Ford convertible coupé done in gold. This car looks better than most 2014 models of today. I would take it in a second.

I am in love with this one

2 amazing

Grumpa Joe:

These are certainly two people one has to admire. The lady for keeping a car she loved for so many years, and the Veteran who at age 84 can still sharp-shoot with the best of the military

We enjoy sharing tales of amazing people from time

different stories of amazing people.

If you haven’t heard of Ted Gundy, you will. He is
around 86 years old, was a sniper in WWII, and this
video will show him making some amazing shots.

He makes shots that seem impossible and makes it
look easy.

Our second amazing person is Grace Braeger from West
Bend. She bought a 1957 Chevy in 1957. While that
alone doesn’t make her amazing, the fact that she
still owns it does.

She claims it has just over 100,000 miles on it and
gets the oil changed every 1,000 miles. It still
looks sharp too. Amazing.

We’d like to thank the friends who sent these to us.
Comments are always welcome.
