The Mess

October 7, 2013

Guess what? I have never been to a National park or Washington D.C.  I really don’t care if they never reopen. Take what they are spending on them and tack it on my social security check. Guess what the stock market is always down for a few days then it goes back up. That is how the rich get richer. I could care less about the stock market.

If you are worried the government isn’t going to cure cancer forge it. The congress couldn’t legislate themselves a cure for V.D. Turn it over to the drug companies, they’ll find a cure and make a billion at the same time.

Now for the debt ceiling. When I was 35 I decided I could borrow my way out of debt. I didn’t work. It want work for the country either.

Charity begins at home. Stop sending billions to people that hate us. Stop protecting everybody else’s borders and put the army on ours. First it would boost the local economies through the roof. Second we wouldn’t have to support everyone else’s rejects.

Before we can do any of this though we will all have to be put in cages. We that are living now are too stupid to vote the blood suckers out of office.

 

I say our children should lock us away now before we total screw it up for them. They will be the ones left with this mess.

Religion and Poltics End The World

September 23, 2013

John McCain, Barack ObamaIf you were a conservative, and somebody asks you what party you are a member of you most likely would say Republican. I say you are being brainwashed.

If you are a conservative, do you see yourself looking and acting like John McCain? He is a granddaddy of the Republican Party. Do you share his opinion that we are the policemen of the world? Do you think one dead GI equals one life of anyone else anywhere in the world? He is always willing to lay your son’s life on the line for his ideals. Therefore, he grits his teeth and says we have to conform to the democrats in the isle. I say hell no we don’t and send your own son to fight, your battles, and leave mine here to fight for America.

Don’t even tell that lie that we have to fight them there or fight them here. To that I say go to hell. I have friends that died way too young in Vietnam based on that same lie. We fought them with one hand tied behind our own GI’s backs and then tucked our tails and ran. Guess what they didn’t follow. In fact, they didn’t give a crap. They just wanted our asses out of their country.

I can hardly stomach President Obama. Even so, I appreciate the fact that he tries to do exactly what he says he is going to do. If he says, I am going to stuff a load of crap down your throat. You best develop a taste for dodo.

The Republicans will say. “Go ahead and eat it. We will win next time. They are the minority wing of the Democratic Party.

Give me a straight shooting democrat over a hypocrite Republican any day.

Two things are going to end this world. Politics and Religion. Before you faint and fall over, I didn’t say spiritual things I said religion.

Ask the average person in Mississippi what denomination they are and they will say Baptist. The funny thing is most don’t agree with 40% of the Baptist teaching. This also goes for the Catholic and all other major religions.

It is simply easier to stand with a group you do not totally agree with than stand-alone. Go figure, you don’t believe in abortion but you back Obama.

I think we have eaten political jello so long that we no longer have a backbone.

Now that I have vented allow me to share with you something free. These short stories will be free Tuesday through Friday. Enjoy

Graceland

September 16, 2013

I was lying in bed tonight unable to sleep. I begin to think of worldly things. Jobs, cars book sales and so on. Soon I tired of that and I begin to think of religious things.

               That didn’t take too long. The truth is I am not very religious. Sometimes I wish I were. Many people seem to get a lot of comfort from religion.

               Next, I began to think of spiritual things, first I thought about faith. That was when it came to me. I am short in that area. The Bible says if you just have as much as a mustard seed, you can move mountains. I have never had much luck at moving mountains I must confess.

               Next, I thought about hope. Again bad news. Many times in my life, I either used all mine or simply couldn’t find it. I was getting a little paranoid by this point. I ask myself exactly what did I have.

               That’s when it came to me. I have been blessed repeatedly with grace. When my faith wouldn’t move mountains, His grace did. When I ran out of hope, He poured out some more grace.

               I suppose the truth is I love grace.  It may be a lazy man’s faith for all I know. I am only for sure that I enjoy being in it. I am like a kid playing in the rain.

I even know where Graceland is. Guess what it isn’t outside of Memphis. It is that little area right behind Christ. That is where I go hide when I run out of hope and don’t seem to be able to mustard up any faith.

               If you haven’t you should try it sometimes. It’s like being in a storm shelter. All hell is breaking loose around you. There you are standing in peace that surpasses all understanding.

Tell you the truth my prayer life isn’t even that great. Most of the time it is simply me asking Jesus can I stand in Graceland for a while.

               It’s sort of like taking your big brother to a fight and He is bigger, smarter, braver, and more wonderful than anyone else is there. I am going to bed now. Before I go to sleep, I am going to ask Jesus to rain down some grace one everyone that reads this.

The Puppet President

September 10, 2013

howdy

I have not blogged much in a while, been busy writing and getting two books published. Still though I have been watching TV out the corner of my eye,

               For a long time I have been thinking there was something odd about our president. If you have read many of my blogs in the past, you know I have never liked or trusted this stranger that appeared from nowhere.

               Someone may say you just don’t like the man because he is black and you are from the south. You may believe I don’t like him because he is so liberal. You might even say you simply don’ like politicians.

The last point maybe correct, I really don’t like politicians.

Before we go any further, allow me to tell you someone else I dislike very much. Maybe this will put an end to be the black and liberal thing.

               The second worse person in Washington in my opinion is John McCain. He is lily white. In fact, he is whiter than any undertaker I have ever saw. He was a war hero. I personally think he is as crazy as they come.  Maybe he was hit in the head too many times.

               Now we have established I can fairly dislike black as well as white politicians on both sides of the isle.

               Back to the president. I finally figured out why I can’t stand him. He reminds me of Howdy Doody. If you aren’t half-a century-old or more you most likely, have no idea who I am talking about.

Howdy, Doody was a puppet with a kids show back in the 50’s. A puppeteer named Cowboy Bob pulled his strings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIslhp9vqqweck out

               The other day as I watched our puppet president I could have sworn I saw a thin black string attached to his mouth reaching upward.

My question is who is pulling the strings. Whomever it is need to check in to an AA meeting. I think he is drunk or on drugs.   

I no longer dislike the president. I now feel sorry for him. After all, who wants their strings pulled by an idiot? Even worse who wants their string pulled by someone or a group that seems determine to bring America to her knees.
