An incredibly sad day

Yesterday that is. A very old tree burned to the ground in Florida It was something like 3,500 years old. It was a sapling when the pyramids were starting. They say it wasn’t arson but looking at a map I don’t understand how it could have started in such isolation. I’m not an environmentalist so no one need think I’m a tree hugger, (I’m a conservationist) but this is sad. Whatever the outcome or what they find out, if it was arson, I hope the trolls are caught and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Let’s talk jobs

Posted: January 8, 2012 in Uncategorized

Well, I guess some conservative prognosticators were correct. As we go in to this election cycle, the unemployment picture is going to magically get better. Nevermind that Sears and Kmart are closing stores. OR that several companies have lately declared Chapter 11, Kodak for one. And wait until the military folks start losing their jobs.
So ask yourself, with the above information, how then has the unemployment numbers dropped by 2 million? Easy…the jobs that used to exist don’t anymore with the new Obama math so you don’t have to count the people that used to work them. Get it?
The decrease in unemployment numbers is a lie pure and simple. Nothing has happened to increase employment. Folks need to know that, especially in this election year. They also need to know that as we get closer to November, the numbers released will still magically show a downward trend. Don’t believe it. Ask your friends, relatives, and acquaintances a few months from now. If they are still working, great. If not, then why if things are improving aren’t they?
If the unemployment rates were calculated as usual, it would still be around 11% with real unemployment around 18%. I just cannot believe sometimes the depths this administration, aided and abetted by a sycophantic medai, will use to keep their agenda going.

It’s at night and the lighting is eerie. Very cool.

Cuteness overload of the day

Actually, I think this is quite dangerous. I kinda understand dogs and even the most gentle of these creatures can do serious injury to small children, whether intentional or not. A dog like this, which appears to be a Neapolitan Mastiff, is HUGE and could crush a baby. Still, this is a cute video. Take it for what it is.

Even if you only kinda sorta liked the Beatles, go see the Classical Mystery Tour if it’s going to be near you. We saw it recently and it was very good. Except for that insipid “Imagine” song. I detest that song. Has anyone ever really read the lyrics? They’re horrid. What made me think about it today was this article that appeared on the World Net Daily website. On the one hand it’s smacks of barking moonbattery. On the other hand, I kinda believe a portion of it. I think Lennon’s dabbling in mysticism and such is well known. Was it any more than what many of us have done as we were growing up and in to our early 20s…that wonderful period where we are trying out everything while we believed we knew everything already. Who knows, but go see the show. You’ll enjoy it.

Did you see this yesterday? Animals, particularly dogs, are amazing. We never will know what they know. Have a great weekend!

Something good for a change

In the midst of the daily Obummer-crapper barrage here is something truly amazing to watch. Heck I feel like I got a workout just by viewing. Enjoy.

Well crap, the embed thingie isn’t working so you’ll have to go here.

This is almost too good. You do have to wonder what’s going on. Then CBS asks the laughing goon why he’s laughing like an idiot when all these problems are going on. THEN Obummer makes another move that further cloaks his administration in secrecy by banning the media fron some event. THEN Obummer complains because the imperial cluebat smacks him and he realizes that some of the thugs he has released from Gitmo rejoined terrorist groups. This guy is all over the place with incompetence. Just lovely. Doesn’t it just make you Obamatons feel wonderful watcing Mr. Hopenchange implode so spectacularly?
