I love Christmas

This hasn't been an easy year for our family, and unfortunately my sister won't be home this year. It won't be a typical family Christmas for a whole hosts of reasons. Christmas gifts are going to be in short supply because of everyone has had some major expenses, but the important thing is being together (mom and Dwight are headed to Brenda's after Christmas).

I love being able to watch all the Charlie Brown Christmas and all the sappy Christmas love stories. In all honesty, Christmas is probably the only time it is the only time I allow myself to believe in true love. I guess that is due to the fact that Christmas is nothing more than Christ sacrificing His rightful place to be born in a barn.

Having a tough trip down to the family's mountain bunker, mom playing Christmas Carols over the car stereo made it an easier trip and helped put me in Christmas mood.

So

TO ALL A MERRY CHRISTMAS

While this ticks me off, I just can't quit laughing...guess it keeps me from acting like a wuss

Back in college we used to play the Kevin Bacon six degree game. While it was pointless it may have made a little bit of sense if the media would have connected the dots between tony rezco and Senator barry and there is a one degree separation between rezco, the governor, and Senator obama.

I'll be honest I don't believe Senator obama when he said he didn't consult with Gov. rod blagojevich. Partly because I know he's lying about some of his constitutional beliefs and if that didn't clinch that he had discussed the tape where the Governor basically said Senator obama has an Oedipus Complex confirms this belief.

There are enough people that have been around the Senator that should have raised questions. The people that he has nominated for the cabinet only reinforces my fear of a repeat of Waco, Ruby Ridge, or Elian Gonzalas. We have gotten the government we deserve.

I loathe any criminal activity, and this flat out disgusts me. I don't care what side of the isle is this should be immediate dismissal from office. I guess the reason I can't quit laughing about this is I suspected something like this to be coming and I just don't want start griping about how aggravating this is...I'm already ticked off enough that President bush has set down the road to socialism as much as he has so I have no choice but to laugh otherwise I'll stroke out.

I really don't know how far the governor's corruption extends, but to be real honest I am willing to extend the benefit of the doubt to Jesse Jackson, Jr. While I don't agree with his politics, I have never heard anything negative against the guy and I refuse to project his father's corruption on him. Listening to his press conference I think he's being honest. I'm sure that somewhere there is a whistle blower to what the governor was doing, but I wonder two things. 1) why if a whistle blower did exist doesn't he come forward? 2) why did Fitzgerald, who two 2 years after he knew richard armitage was the person who released valerie plame's name kept going after scooter libby for two years on a purgery charge cut the investigation short?

Enivromentalists report beavers for illegally logging.

Ananova is reporting:

Green campaigners called in police after discovering an illegal logging site in
a nature reserve - only to find it was the work of beavers.
Environmentalists
found 20 neatly stacked tree trunks and others marked for felling with notches
at the beauty-spot at Subkowy in northern Poland.
But police followed a trail
left where one tree had been dragged away - and found a beaver dam right in the
middle of the river.
A police spokesman said: "The campaigners are feeling
pretty stupid. There's nothing more natural than a beaver."


I was hoping for pictures of beavers in handcuffs but I guess the authorities believed the beavers held the proper logging permits.

A great Idea for our benevolent lawmakers.

Fox News's Special Report with Bret Hume had a story about a proposition to make sure legislators in New South Wales, Australia stay sober after an instance where one lawmaker shoved a colleague and a couple of other legislators.

After some of the stupid things congress and it's members have done the last couple of years it would be a good idea to run a dry organization for a few years. I realize ALL kennedy relatives in government would have to quit, but I'm willing to make the sacrifice.

My new policy when talking to Pro-choice women about gun control

I was channel surfing during a commerical break for Shooting USA. I happened on an ABC show with what was a bunch of doctors where it was discovered one of the partners was performing abortions. The head doctor, which was apparently a liberal woman told those that don't have overies to get out of the room.
I realize being a man I will never have an abortion, but if I were stupid enough to get a women pregnant I have the right to say whether or not I want the responsibility due to the 14th Amendments guarentees equal protection under the law, thus I have a right to my opinion and if it does come up in conversation I'm not going to hold back on my opinion, but if the anti-free speech tactic used by liberal women that I have no right to speak about it this is my new policy:
Since you don't own, want to own,
or want to shoot...You don't have a
right to your opinion and who let
you out of the kitchen anyway.

The Gift of Life

Per Request of Texas Fred

This is posted at the request of Concerned Citizen at Judging Truth, please
read this and if you can help, I am certain it would be appreciated! Donations
can be made at Carter Blood Care and their information can be found at this

The Gift of LifeAs we
approach the Christmas season, our thoughts turn to giving. Traditionally we
look for meaningful presents to give our loved ones that help us celebrate the
gift of life that Christ gave us by his suffering and death. I am posting this
request to ask that you give the gift of life itself to a complete stranger this
Christmas.
His name is Tyler Seedig and he is a young Marine who was bound
for his first duty station in just three weeks. He was home with his family this
Thanksgiving weekend and went deer hunting with his older brother on Sunday. On
the way back home they were involved in a car accident that claimed the life of
the older brother and left Tyler severely burned. He was transported to the
Parkland Burn Unit where he remains in a critical care unit with severe burns
over 65% of his body. He will not be reporting to his unit in Afghanistan, nor
will he be home for Christmas, New Years or possibly even Easter. Tyler will
most likely spend the next six months in Parkland Hospital trying to survive the
initial trauma, fight off the coming infections and allow his body to slowly
rebuild.
Tyler needs blood. Plasma in particular, so the type is unimportant.
I am asking any capable person who can to give the most precious gift possible
this year and donate a pint of blood to Carter Blood Center in the name of Tyler
Seedig, Parkland Burn Unit, Dallas, TX. It costs us nothing except time and
minor discomfort to give, but it can save the life of Tyler or someone else in
need.
Through out this season we always talk of helping those in need, of
giving to those less fortunate and of remembering those who serve. Here is the
perfect chance to do all of those things with a simple pint of blood. Help this
young Marine who was embarking on a journey of service and self-sacrifice in
order to defend your freedoms and serve this nation where ever the call might
have taken him. Think of what a precious chance it is to be able to give life to
another.
Please keep this family in your prayers as well. They have lost a
son and must plan a funeral during a season which should bring joy to us all,
while they stand by the bedside of another son who clings to life by a thread.
Remember them this season as you celebrate the love of your own families and
cherish those around you for you never know when the call home may come.Judging Truth: The Gift of Life
