Froozen apples


My world today is a little snowy. Would you like a frozen apple? This was taken just out side of my office, where there is an apple orchard. We are getting a lot of snow today.

Bee with a heavy load

I can watch bees at work for hours as they fly around each flower and collating pollen for the hive, this one has quiet a load. How do they keep in the air, or even flies in a strait line?  What a marvel bees are.

Change the grease the pork is frying


All you people that voted Obama in to office wanted change. Well your going to get it but it's not going to be the give me money free ride you all think he well give you. Your life as you know it is about to change for the worst Maybe one day you all will stop drinking the cool aid and wake up before it’s too late. But I doubt it. There is a new cook in DC.

FEDERAL BAILOUT

Do's any one think this Federal bailout is a bad idea?

 

We the people of this grate land are about to get rolled over the barrel once again by the good old boy’s in  Washington DC and big wigs of Wall Street. Once again we get to pay through the nose with taxes for a government quick fix by throwing billons of tax dollars at a problem. That should have been fixing years ago when Mr. Clinton was in the white house, I can see decades of finger pointing, congressional committees, law suits and yes book deals and TV news show appearances. I’m no financial genus, But even I no that throwing money at a problem only makes the problem bigger, and the tax payers poorer.

 It’s time for strait talk and strait deals.  Stop the political how ha and start fixing the problems. I have one political pull that I intend to use to my fullest this fall my vote. I am going to what tall the very last moment to decide who to vote for this year. I’m going to read about, lessen to, very person I can how is running for an office this year. And if I don’t hear strait talk from them about the problems of today and tomorrow then they are not getting my vote. And I encourage my fallow Americans to do the same. Go to political rallies, lessen to the news, though most news shows are very one sided and just that a show, talk to your family, friends and neighbors. If you don’t get the strait talk from then, then go to a different poetical rallies, turn the channel to a different news show, talk to all your family, and talk to all your neighbors  to find out how is talking the strait talk and how is not. Then do the one thing no one can keep you from doing VOTE.

Yes I know we will be paying for the good old boys of DC and Wall Streets debacle for years to come. But if we have any say in it and we do. Come next year they won’t have a job. And just maybe we will have some one talking strait, and making this land as grate as it can be for every one.

 

The cry has gone from USA, USA, USA or Obama, Obama, Obama to VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. 

50 STATES

50 STATES Do’s the East coast think there are only 13 states in this union? The last time I counted there where 50 states, at lest the flag in my front yard has 50 stars on it. You know there are people living past the Ohio River, and we do not all have trap lines and fur to sale. I’ve been lessening to the news reports about the bailout for Wall Street and the banks. And you would think there is nothing but bucktooth morons living past the Ohio River. We do know that if the stuck market keeps going the way it is that there will be more banks to fail and jobs lost. But we also know that throwing billions for tax dollars at a problem do’s not fix the problem. It only makes it last longer and then we get to pay for it all over again. I have sent an e mail to my elected officials telling then if they vote for the bailout I will not vote to put them back in office. And I think there are a lot of as north, south and west of the Ohio River that are saying the same thing. Stop throwing tax money around like there is no tomorrow and fix the problem right the first time. We will get through this and fix it. Lat us all work together and make this a grate land again.

Political humor

 

Hay did I see President Bush and Secretary Paulson on TV down in Texas at Bush’s ranch. They where in bush’s back yard burying mason jars full of money? Bush said he had lots of work to get done in the next two months. Can you say depression – lame duck – not in touch with what is going on around you?

 

Then you have Obama saying He was just a neighbor I hardly even new hem and Mr. Arafat. We had drinks together two three times a week that’s all. Can you say two face. (P.L.O Politically- Lacking -Organization (or well say or do anything to get in to office or moven On Up.org)

 

Mr. McCain is running around the mulberry bush with a pocket full of weasels. Yelling pop goes the weasel, POP goes the weasel, POP goes the weasel? I know I know you never really know what he's thinking. I’m voting I’m not voting, I’m debating I’m not debating.  Can you say Senility?

 

I’m surprised that Sarah Palin is even on the campaign trail, the fall salmon run is on. Can you say let’s go fishen? OPS we’re not suppose to pick on girls. I’m sorry Sarah wink wink-wink

 

Poor Barney Franks got his shirt tail caught up in the Bill O Reilly spin cycle and he’s still flabbergasted. Can you say get out of office? Or should go to jail.

 

Joe Bidden is one of the good old boys of the belt way. Do I need to say any thing more? How about go home Joe go home.

 

The View five Hollywood women setting around trying to out shout & talk over each other. Can you say cluck-cluck-cluck? Why don’t you girls get real jobs and help America get out of debt. I know Gods a woman and I’m going to hell. What man isn’t?

 

New saying for chides hanging out at the play ground. ERP ECONONAMIC RESUIE PLAN Can you say slang for leaky lead duck? Or help us jesses the belt way boys are at it again. Or Wall Street craps shut come on seven Daddy needs a new pair of shoes.
