I hear that there’s a big hockey game going on tonight.

Confession: I could not possibly care less.

That is all.

Flag Day 2011.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:57 pm

On Flag Day, the American Legion, in a solemn ceremony, retires flags that have become worn with use. There were five such barrels used to retire the hundreds of flags that people from the community dropped off during the year. The local Boy Scout Troop participated in the ceremony and the retirement of the flags.

It’s an American Thing, and I was proud to be part of it.

The Old Westerns.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 10:09 pm

When I was a boy, Westerns were the rage. We all had toy guns (the horror!) and played “Cowboys and Indians” (yet more horror!). Hell, it seemed that, at some point, most kids I knew got a cowboy (or cowgirl) outfit for Christmas. I know I did, and my mother took me off to Newark to have my picture taken in it. (No, I’m not posting the picture).

Things were simple. There were good guys, and there were bad guys. They were easy to tell apart, and the good guys always won out in the end. The bad guys got shot, but they never bled, and if a good guy got shot, it was always a “just a flesh wound” that could be easily tended to with a neckerchief.

I miss the cowboys.

Check out this great collection of Western stars. Turn up the volume.

Thanks to reader, Dick for the link and a pleasant few minutes.

Consider This …

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 10:25 pm

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. SENATOR BARACK H. OBAMA, MARCH, 2006

Sad. It’s just sad.

Somehow I don’t think this woman will be part of one of the featured success stories in the e-harmony commercials.

A Few Brief Open Letters.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 6:12 pm

Dear Newt and Mitt:
Each of you has bought into the ridiculous notion that the stuff I exhale is somehow dangerous to the survival of the polar bears, each of you conveniently ignoring the effects the farookin’ sun might just have on the changes in climate, which changes have existed and will continue to exist, for the natural life of this planet.

Please go back to your private lives while we go about selecting a candidate for 2012 who isn’t going to destroy the economy based on an underlying premise that is about as valid as alchemy.

Dear Ms. Wasserman-Schultz:
Congratulations! You have given new meaning to mendacity, rudeness and douchebaggery. I am tickled pink that you are the chairperson of the Democrat National Committee, because I’m certain that every time you open your pie hole the Democrat Party loses another couple hundred thousand votes. You go, girl!

Dear Ms. Pelosi:
A great-big PRS thank you for continuing to be the blabbering, dumb-as a-bag-of cow-pies contemptible swine you have always been. The people who live well outside the city limits of San Francisco have finally awakened to what a complete political hack and monumental jackass you are.

Please keep talking. We love it.

Dear Bill Maher:
It cracks me up every time I read that you are some sort of genius. Anyone who doesn’t get their news from the New York Times or from the TV networks knows what a jyerrrrrkoff you are. You’re nothing but a punk who needs to be slapped silly.

Dear Anthony Weiner:
Please, please, please don’t resign. Hang tough. You’ll be the perfect poster boy for the Democrat Party in 2012.

Dear Barack:
Auf Wiedersehen in 2012, Arschloch. (You may need someone who speaks Austrian to translate).

Banjo-Pickin’ Eight Year Old — Wow.

The video also features a fiddle player and guitar player, both just boys.

I’d lay long odds that these kids don’t sit around all day playing video games.

I’ll be easy to spot. Look for the guy with the great farookin’ hair wildly applauding in the FRONT ROW.
