Those Whitefaces Win Again

Overwhelmed by the Whitefaces.  
Call Sen. Harry Reid's office!  Call Eric Holder!
Call Al Sharpton!  
Raaacists

Lovingly lifted from The Pampa (Tx) News:

HEREFORD — The Pampa Harvesters (1-2) traveled to Hereford (1-2) to take on the Whitefaces in their first road game of the season. The Hereford defense, who got to senior quarterback Tyler Hooper three times, was too much for the Harvesters as they defeated Pampa 35-7.  At least, the Harvesters weren't Blanco-ed.

Pampa Harvesters coach Greg Poynor said, “This week I felt like our defense played really well, and we just gave them no help on the other side of the ball on the offense. We just kept putting them out there over and over again.”

They forced Hereford to punt and gave the Harvesters the ball at their own 28-yard line.


After a Pampa three-and-out, the Whitefaces were able to score the first points of the game and take a 7-0 lead when  haf black  half back Brandon Cloud (23) lowered his shoulder and powered over the goal line Friday night.



Whitefaces' Cloud (I'm wading in irony here) had two touchdown runs in the contest.

The Harvesters received the ball and Aaron Arreola took it out to the 26-yard line. Hooper connected with junior Alec McClendon for a 51-yard pass, but was unable to take advantage of the big play. 

In the second quarter, the Whitefaces were able to turn two of their drives into 14 points, while Pampa struggled to get the ball moving on offense. Their special teams on kick returns played well however, as Arreola had unofficially 72 yards on three attempts by halftime as the Harvesters trailed 21-0.

That Hereford defense, which gave Pampa fits all night, was too much for the Harvesters however, and closed the game out for the Whitefaces.



Offended by that team name?  
Well, who the hell cares,
besides you?  Get a life~!

Maybe, If Ray Rice Had Been Whipped With An Elm Switch

Socialists are angry, & so you should be, too~

What the present, Liberal uproar has with the National Football League regarding running backs Ray Rice of Baltimore, and Adrian Peterson of Minnesota, is incoherent support of both sides of an argument.  Nothing More.

Ray Rice should have been more disciplined with a belt, when he was younger, so he would not slug a fellow female human, his girlfriend,

Adrian Peterson is condemned for doing just that same thing, for his future-running-back-sons. 

Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III

was told by an NFL uniform inspector* not to wear his “Know Jesus, Know Peace” t-shirt before post-game press conference.
What we have here, is the Liberals' War on Men Who Act Like Men.

Next up, Liberals' contempt for Arizona Cardinal wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald,
who dares to complete his college degree at the Univ. of Phoenix, while being the paid spokesman of same,
an Uncle Tom, improving himself over the sudden Latino immigrant Workers, that his team represents.

The 50-year old Democratic Party War on Negros, continues.

Trying their best to control the behavior of their voters, through public humiliation and intimidation:  A variation on the old Carrot & Stick motivation method, always effective on Jackasses.

* you just know, the uniform inspector was a gay guy.

REGARDING YOUTUBE "FAVORITED VIDEOS"

I discovered something disturbing, yet significant last night, with regard to the YouTube videos that I post here on The Local Malcontent:  Sometimes, after a video has played out fully, the rest of my 'favorited videos' plays continuously until the end of my list of favorites, which currently is 111.

This could be a problem for both of us.... for if you have the (wasted) time, you can see all the things I think are worth saving in my YouTube account.  By the way, at YouTube.com, 
I am known as "AaronXOK".... you'll recognize me by my nickle....

But just a word of warning for others who might use one of their favorites within their bloggies:  All the rest of your favorites will also play afterwards.

NOT that I am embarrassed or ashamed, of any video which I claim as a favorite there~ but you could.  Ok, I'm kinda red-faced about that one, .... , but I have a good reason for it.  

(distraction) Why not check out this amazing video while you forget about everything I just said??!!


THANK YOU FOR NOT GOING FORWARD, 
AFTER THE "LAUGHING POLICEMAN" VID.

Confession: I am a die-hard Nemophilist


Here's a Screen Print of my computer Wallpaper:


I love nothing better than being alone at our 'refuge', in LeFlore County, Ok., 
wandering away from our base and forgetting myself, becoming one with nature, 
smelling the aromas of the Ouachita forest, becoming another beast living there, bathing in a stream, drinking from the same, maybe eating from the same....

Comedy. Doesn't. Get. Better. Than.This.



Just like Katie Casey, I'M BASEBALL MAD~!!  MAD I AM, GUILTY,
"CRAZY IN THE (WHO'S ON) 1st DEGREE".

I just love this time of the year, sports seasons converging: Squirrel season, Deer season, Dove season, Duck season, Bear season(?),,
 and my favorite teams going wild,
the Sooners and Cowboys, the Cardinals, the Thunder, the Saints!!




Then, there's George Carlin's classic interpretation of God's Game and Football, LOL,
(and after viewing Carlin's great baseball/football comedy shtick, there are a couple of baseball GEMS, for those of you patient enough to stay for extra innings~!)

The Sinking of the S.S. 0bama, &
"Down Goes Frazier!"


[That's] shocking — but not surprising. Barack Obama was not ready to be president, and still isn’t. It is a fantasy to believe he’ll master the art in his final two years.

The lasting image will be his yukking it up on the golf course minutes after giving a perfunctory speech on the beheading of James Foley. It revealed him as hollow, both to America and the world, and there is no way to un-see the emptiness.

That means, I fear, we are on the cusp of tragedy. It is reasonable to assume the worst-case scenarios about national security are growing increasingly likely to occur.

Obama’s fecklessness is so unique that our adversaries and enemies surely realize they will never face a weaker president. They must assume the next commander in chief will take a more muscular approach to America’s interests and be more determined to forge alliances than the estranged man who occupies the Oval Office now.

So Vladimir Putin, Iran, China, Islamic State, al Qaeda and any other number of despots and terrorists know they have two years to make their moves and advance their interests, and that resistance will be token, if there is any at all.

So writes New York Post editor Michael Goodwin today.
Read it all, for it perfectly sums up the leadership of the idiot Obama,  here


What controversial leader Barack Zerobama has done to our country is criminal, in my opinion.
For one thing, most importantly for the first Half-Negro leader, he has set back race relations
~at least 60 years~, through his intervention into local racial, criminal matters where it doesn't belong:  Ferguson, Missouri, Cambridge, Massachusetts, Sanford, Florida;  AND DID NOT INTERVENE in places where his participation would've mattered:  Chicago, Detroit, Washington D.C..

TOTAL FAILURE AT THE TOP is/will be the remembered feature of this era of American leadership.

And that cannot be good for race relations, can it?  When "race relations" is narrowly defined as Black folks and Everyone else.  For what has the first 1/2 Black leader done, but screw up everything?

Black Americans still STILL GIVE Obama 88% job approval!!  That can only be because of the color of his skin.  That is some grave, 19th Century thinking there.  Disappointing especially, when anyone remembers that for 50 years, the Democratic Party has been the party of the under-classes, yet has done NOTHING to advance the total esteem and wealth of their voters.  
All Democrats Do, is Keep Their Voting Block Dependent Upon Government to fulfill their needs, and only needs, 
but never, never offering real opportunities to improve their lives, never ever offering real incentives to become wealthy, never fulfilling their dreams.

For it they would do that, wealthy people of whatever, immaterial race, then become Republicans.


But to stay in positions of power, the Democratic Party has to keep Negros and others, IN THE UNDERCLASSES, they need them there suffering, and so they do not enjoin real economic or social improvement.  That mode of operation has been the Democrats' way of staying in power since Andrew Jackson in the 1830s.  
That's what I mean about 19th century thinking.

A Blended Scotch, Please~


I do not think that Scotland should vote to separate from Great Britain.

NO Good will come of it; this is not 1776, as when the toddler offspring, the "united" States of America fought off the Brits, and won our Independence.

No, this separation comes at a time when Scotland DOES NEED MORE SELF DETERMINATION, especially with illegal immigration, but to sever oneself from the giant money tit of London, et. al, is suicidal, within the European Union today.
The European Union is ONLY a highly-promoted idea, but NOT one designed or built for long term security of any form.
Sad to say, that a native, removed, former stepson of your mother country should be able to see this, from my distance~, 
and not you!

It would be like divorcing your wealthy mum and dad.... only to have them abruptly abandon you on the riverbank, for good luck.  Instead, you good and fine Scots (whom I envy, by the way), vote NO, NO TO CUTTING THE TIES TO ENGLAND, WHICH HAVE PROPPED YOU SO WELL OVER THE PAST 200 YEARS.

AND INSTEAD, INSIST UPON MORE SELF DETERMINATION.  = = = = = = =

TAKE THIS FROM a Native American, whose family benefits today from my tribe's special relationship with 'mother' Washington, D.C.  
Please recognize the similarities between we two peoples, in this; insist upon greater autonomy instead, in return for staying within the British family.

Heed this:  Some Indian tribes here on our continent rebelled with valor against the push of Anglo (and therefore, Negro) infestation, 
and against Washington, D.C. over a century ago; and today, 
those singular tribes suffer greatly, living on sparse reservations of land, with little economic hope, devoid of resources, and totally dependent upon a bureaucracy hundred of miles away.

As you good folk could be, someday, from your 
Brussels representatives.

***As an uninvited observer, honestly, I would urge you Scots to Vote NO to secession.

A Happy 52nd Birthday to Anthony James

To my best =--est buddy, Tony, who saw me in the Talihina - Spiro Bank this morning,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BROTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!        THIS IS FOR YOU~!  From me, Ron...  hahaha



Let's DO go fishin' together, with Colt, this week, please~!
the beer and ice are on me; YOU provide the fish dinner~!





Lastly, to the BEST Sooners Fan I know, this IS For You, Tony~

Retelling the Legend of Michael Tanner
2001 World Trade Center Hero

If you ask me, 'anytime' is a great time to remember Michael Tanner, a giant "Tiny" HERO who, 13 years ago, became legend.

My love to you, Michele and daughters, Shasha and Gianna~! 
I am humbled, honored, knowing you ~!

AND HONORED HERE, to re-tell your Michael's story:

Heyyah, friends. Once again on this anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America, I present this tribute to Mike Tanner, with respect and with love.

If you look into the comments section, you will see two comments from Mr. Tanner's widow, Michele.
I would ask each of you to treat her with the due respect which this lady deserves, should you decide to e-mail her.



(( Republished from 5 years ago ))


TEN YEARS AGO, September 11, 2001 was a crisp, mild Tuesday.
The early morning weather that morning in Secaucus, New Jersey was clear and unusually cool, around 57° at 5:45 am, when Michael Anthony Tanner made his wife's coffee.

"I couldn't get out of bed unless I had coffee," wife Michele Tanner would remember. "He would get up at 5:30, and he left at 6, but at 5 till, he would have that coffee underneath my nose, every day of my married life."

This Post is Dedicated to The Extraordinary Life of Michael Anthony Tanner, Secaucus, New Jersey, an investment trader with Cantor Fitzgerald, working in the North World Trade Tower in lower Manhattan, New York.
More Specially, To His Eternal Memory And Legacy.

Michael "Tiny" Tanner, 44.

Tanner was called "Tiny" by his friends and co-workers, as he was taller than 6-foot-2, and weighed over 250 pounds. And he had a large capacity for kindness. Men as big as "Tiny" Mike Tanner often need to be extra-kind, to offset their impressive size. Michele just called her loving husband 'Mike'.

Mike worked for the Investment and Stock Trading firm, Cantor Fitzgerald. CantFitz, whose slogan is "At the end of the day, what did you achieve?", back in 2001, was located on floors 101-105 of the north World Trade Center.

More on his office space, in just a moment.

Meanwhile, Let's get to know Michael Anthony Tanner.

This past March 24th, 2009, his wife wrote:
"Hi Michael,

Wish you were here to see your beautiful, intelligent, spirited, kind hearted daughters. You would be so proud.Your mom misses you so much. I miss you so much. Not good at feelings so Happy Birthday in Heaven. say hi to dad and Teddy. Michele"

A friend of Mike's wrote: "... I'll always remember the Herman Munster shots (monster home runs) you used to hit. You were a good man."



See, Mike Tanner of Secaucus, New Jersey was a star athlete in his youth, before he was a star Investment/Securities trader as an adult. He lettered in Football, all four years he attended Cornell University in Ithica, New York, as Quarterback of the Cornell Big Red. ~!

Yeah... Quarterback!.


Of a college football team. Dang. Wow.
Even of an Ivy League team, that says a great deal about the student athlete, Mike Tanner.

Well after all, he had been an All-State footballer in New Jersey in 1975, leading his H.S. team to that state's Parochial B state title. QB Tanner then led his Cornell University Big Red Machine to an 8-19 record in 1976-77, and 1979. (note- as a freshman at CU~!)

Among his proudest moments was leading Cornell to a nail-biting, upset win over arch rival Harvard U., 17 to 7, in '77. Two years later, in Tiny's final year, he led the Big Red in a whuppin' of Harvard, 41-14!


"Mike had a cannon for an arm, and he was a hard runner who was built more like an offensive guard than a quarterback," said Don Fanelli, class of '76, and long-time friend of Tanner's from both high school and college, and a Chi Psi fraternity brother.


Remember Mike's nickname, "Tiny"??
That Never Referred to Mike's Heart. Because on September 10th, 2001, 'Tiny' phoned Don Fanelli, offering him two tickets to a N.Y. Yankees game for the next night, Tuesday the 11th, in celebration of Fanelli's wife's birthday.

"We were supposed to meet Tuesday evening. You know the rest." Fanelli said. "Despite his many personal successes, Mike retained an affinity for the underdog -- and loved the Mets and the Jets." Tiny's brother in law, Frank D'Amelio, would say later, "He gave away a lot that no one knew about. He had a heart of pure gold. He would think nothing of handing a friend $5,000 and telling them not to worry about it."


Sorry, I got ahead of myself. Michael Anthony Tanner's life is a best seller storybook, including the heartwarming, devoted love affair of his life, Michele, his longtime girlfriend, then all Too-short a time wife.

As if Mike Tanner's life wasn't already the stuff which little boys' fantasies were made of, being a state High School football quarterback star, being the University's starting football quarterback, and hitting "Herman Munster sized" Home runs, he married his High School sweetheart, too.

Mike met Michele when he was 20, she 18. They dated and then went their separate ways, but that spark between them continued to smoulder it seems, because the two always knew they would eventually wind up back together.

Ten years later, Mike and Michele realized that what they had was true love, so they made it official: Michele and Tiny Tanner.

Mr/Mrs. Michael A. Tanner. circa 2001, Secaucus, New Jersey had enjoyed a 15-year marriage and produced two extraordinary daughters, Shasha and Gianna Tanner. Mike coached basketball and softball for Sasha, 14, and was teaching Gianna, 4, football drills in the house. "The football would go flying towards this humongous chandelier, and I'd put my hands to my eyes and say, `Just be careful!'", Michele recalled, in 2002.
*******************************************
We already have learned that Mike offered his buddy Don, Yankees tickets the night before the awful, Islamic terrorism attacks, and so sadly, his death.

That Yankees game with Cleveland would not be played for almost another three weeks, as baseball became the most meaningless thing in the world suddenly.

We know that maybe, Mike brewed coffee for Michele in their kitchen, maybe 4 hours before his murder, along with 2,995 other Americans
that damned morning;
he and everyone else awoke that morning, never expecting, never dreaming what nightmare would transpire 4 hours later:

Then, on Mike Tanner's last, innocent morning, likewise the last moments of America's normalcy, Tiny Tanner proved yet again, to be a Giant hero to his co-workers. From reports of fellow employees' families, the hero Tanner, having already seen the first hijacked airliner crash into the South Tower only minutes before, took charge on his floor of the north WTC, directing other people down the stairway before himself. Until the terrifying end there, in stunned shock at a second airplane attack, and then realizing his own fate, at being among the first Americans to know that suddenly, violently, We had been attacked, and were now at war.

Michael Anthony Tanner, "Tiny".

With A Humongous Heart of Gold.
B. March 24, 1957.
D. September 11, 2001.


WE WILL NEVER FORGET.
WE WILL NEVER FORGET.

WAIT,...
WHAT??

The word "OBAMA" means "Hatred" in some foreign language??

WHO KNEW~!!?  Besides Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Jimmuhy Carter, 
& every other fag .....





Sounds Good to Me~  
I obama the Chicago White Sox, and the Cubs, too.

Rock and Roll Prayers


I had never listened closely to Rod Stewart's 20-year-old hit song "Have I Told You Lately...".

But yesterday I did, and at first I thought about my wife; for it sure fits my love for Leticia Marie Local Malcontent.

But then, immediately, I realized that this is a song of praise to Our Holy Father in Heaven, too, 
to remind rock fans that God is constantly with them, each and every one, closer than their (my) (your) own breath; and wants very much to have a personal relationship with us.

Look at this beautiful world that He gave to us, for us~!



Like another rock song from the 1970s, "Biggest Part of Me", by a minor group called "Ambrosia".   *This tune has been a rock hymn for me for years.* 
Hearing it spontaneously causes me to focus in on God, 
and what He's trying to show me, 
there in my world at that moment.  To become aware of Him, and His gentle guidance for me.

Because He did it once~!~!  And He was/IS awesome for it. I've told this quick story before here on my bloggie, but it begs to be told again, and so I will:

I was driving home from Church one Sunday afternoon, when I lived and worked in Dallas, Texas for the Bureau of Indian Affairs.  Maybe 1998 or 1999... Anyway, I'm feeling good from the pastor's sermon, the lively, warm fellowship at that church, and I'm listening to the radio as I drive back home to my apartment.
  
When this song by Ambrosia begins playing.  I already recognized it as a loving song to/from God, maybe a conversation with God, Jesus Christ, and as it played, 
and as I drove along a street in North Dallas,
I shouted out "I LOVE YOU, GOD!!!", out my truck window.
IMMEDIATELY, INSTANTLY, I looked over to my left, to a high school's baseball diamond, and I saw something written in huge letters, on the wood fence of the left field baseline:  
It said, and I'm not kidding you
it read, "I love you too Ron".

Palmira Silva, 82, North London gardener-
Another ISIS torture victim


Absolutely believable to me.

The likelihood of 'copycat' crimes committed by any other cowardly Muslim wannbe-jihadist is just too great.  In any country in the world.

Palmira Silva was slaughtered by a 25-year-old Muzzie convert, a jihadist-wannabe who could not find it in himself to go to the current Muslim war du jour, so he went and cut the head off an 82 year old in her garden.

This Is Common Practice Among Muslims Jihadists:  Gazan men kill their women and children by hiding behind them while playing "Jihad", as they watch all the great Jihadists do, hide behind children and women and the simple minded losers among their backward culture.

When the men cannot force their children or their women into Jihadi combat, then they cut off their genitalia.  Why don't we cut off theirs, instead, and let these bastards live out their lives as eunuchs?  Chop it off, testicles and all, and then tell them, "have a nice day! Send over your neighbor next, or your brother or your nephew,".

lovingly lifted from The London Telegraph:

An 82-year-old woman was beheaded in a north London suburban garden by a man with a machete.
Palmira Silva, a widow and grandmother described as “such a sweet lady” by one neighbour, was killed outside her home in Edmonton in a random but frenzied assault by a 25-year-old.
Witnesses said they saw the man, wielding a foot-long blade, attack a passing vehicle and a cat before roaming back gardens looking for a victim.

"Mrs Silva, who was of Italian descent, was pronounced dead at the scene."
Thank you, Sherlock Holmes~

One neighbour told of her narrow escape. Freda Odame, 30, a catering worker, said she heard a commotion and pulled back her curtains to see a man in his mid-20s with a knife.  “Someone was shouting and the door was banging. I could hear the screaming but I could not hear what he was saying,” she said. “I could see that he had a big curved knife, about the size of an arm’s length and he was crouching as if frantically searching for something. He had a crazed look in his eyes so I closed my curtains because I was scared.
“My next door neighbour was in his garden but did not seem to realise anything was going on. I have seen him around here all the time, I think he lives on the road. I think he lives with his family. Five minutes after I heard him screaming the police knocked on my door and told me I had to get out.”
"During that period they (the Bobbies) distracted the man from carrying out any further attacks." One (Boobie) was injured during the arrest and is believed to have suffered a broken wrist.

Now we have to outlaw machetes, too, along with butter knives, fingernail clippers and toy guns.

Pompous Det Chief Insp John Sandlin, leading the investigation, described it as a "a highly visible attack in broad daylight", and added: “We are confident that we are not looking for anyone else at this stage.
Whilst it is too early to speculate on what the motive behind this attack was I am confident,
based on the information currently available to me, that it is not terrorist related.”

I Am Not Sure Whom I'm Rooting For
In This Mess


From the New York Daily News:
Colorado baker ordered to serve gay couples, vows to stop making wedding cakes

    Jack Phillips would rather stop making cakes altogether than be forced to bake for an LGBT couple’s wedding. The Lakewood man’s decision came after his state’s Civil Rights Commission ruled that he had discriminated against newlyweds David Mullins and Charlie Craig.

From Fox News:
State Sues Florist Who Refused to Decorate Gay Wedding

    The State of Washington is suing a small flower shop after the owner declined to provide flowers for a homosexual wedding – based on her religious beliefs.

From The Blaze:
They Refused to Host a Gay Wedding on Their Farm   Now They’re Facing a Big Fine

    Owners of a family farm in Schaghticoke, New York, are being fined $13,000 for refusing to allow a gay wedding ceremony to take place on their property in 2012, just one year after the state legalized same-sex nuptials.

From Christianity Today:
New Mexico Supreme Court: Photographers Can't Refuse Gay Weddings
Justice: “There is a price we all have to pay in our civic life.”  

    In a closely watched case on gay rights, religious freedom, artistic freedom, the speech rights of businesses, and a host of other legal hot button issues, the New Mexico Supreme Court today ruled that wedding photographers could not refuse to shoot gay ceremonies.

**********************************

SO WHY THIS HEADLINE TODAY??

From USA Today:
Michael Sam Not Signed to St. Louis Practice Squad

    The St. Louis Rams have filled their 10-player practice squad, and it does not include defensive end Michael Sam.
Sam, who is trying to become the NFL's first openly gay player, was among the final players the Rams cut Saturday as the team set its 53-man roster. The Rams kept nine defensive linemen, including five defensive ends.  Michael Sam is a defensive end.

QUESTION:  Why Are The Rams NOT Being Sued By Someone?

**********************************

I am a heterosexual man, married to a heterosexual woman nearly six years; neither of us endorse homosexuality as a lifestyle. To the best of my knowledge, our knowledge, we know only two, long-term, lesbian couples between us.  No gay men & no gay male couples. 

With all that said and established, I both understand and support the U.S. Christian businesses above, who have taken the high road with their morality and beliefs.... the wedding florist, the baker, the Photographer, the wedding site owner-- their personal beliefs must be covered by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

I will stand with, in support of any Christian business being pressured to accept homosexual marriage and homosexuality, in not providing services to interested, gay couples, 
if doing so violates their own personal values.

That just seems to me to be a no-brainer, given the long time, and widely held standard of business, "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone."  God Blesses That Right~!

But, there are the mitigating circumstances....  There is no right like, "I reserve the right to reject service or entertainment by anyone."

Former Missouri defensive end, SEC Defensive Player of the Year, Michael Sam, a gay man is an entertainer.  AS MUCH AS WE MAY LIKE HIM PERSONALLY, or SAM'S STORY of COURAGE. 

It always comes down to individuals, and whether we (singly) know them, or if they are representative of some 'frowned-upon' group; like homosexuals, like Muslims, like Illegal immigrants.
When you get to know one of "them", it is OK, they are cool, they're funny, they're trusted maybe.
Rather than in the bulk, where shadows and shadowy figures reside, like gay couples pressing Christian florists to supply their gay wedding, or convicted felons who have come back into the US.
The whole is discolored by the unseemly parts, resulting in those often mentioned, 
"grey areas" in life.

I suggest that former St. Louis Ram DE Michael Sam should never have pushed his sexuality on us.
I suggest that Michael Sam rely less on his private life and 'his privates' in reaching his goals.
I suggest that we all emphasize that WE DO NOT CARE TO KNOW THE SEXUAL PREFERENCES OF the clerk at McDonalds who serves us, or of the shortstop of our favorite team or the Defensive End of some team, OR any celebrity
.  
Why Is That Important For Anyone To Announce To The World, except when you are in and within close circles of friends and workmates and family members? 
Who Is Important Enough to know the truth about you, about me, Who Is Not Important Enough?

Michael Sam lost his dream of playing in the National Football League, to his overarching dream of telling everyone that he likes other men.  And that IS sad, and I do feel bad for him, for that.

But he intruded into our brains, in a sense,
by telling us about his sex-life, 
when we did not care.
**********************

AND YET,,, 
SO DID I, JUST NOW, @ the BEGINNING OF MY PART OF THIS POST, 
DIDN'T I?

'Up To No Good'


That could be a catchy title for anything happening in the United States. currently.
But I'm talking U.S. Currency, currently.

We've reached rock bottom with our coins and 
our paper currency.

~Did you know that there's a minted, gold coin, celebrating the 50 years AFTER Kennedy's assassination?   That's creepy. "Kennedy Free, Since '63~!"
(this coin shows the side of Kennedy's head which was not blown off from 3 angles)

anyways, the state of our coinage is shameful.

The United States Mint began issuing Presidental, $1 coins a few years back, and I remember hearing how dreadful the "Richard Nixon" coin would be, and dreadfully designed too, probably....
But we have in circulation, other butt-ugly coins like the Rutherford B. Hayes dollar coin,
and/or the Mrs. R.B. "Bob" Hayes (the Lucy), $10 gold coin.






(YEP-- The U.S. mint is so bereft of ideas, they have begun to issue $10 gold coins in the images of our first ladies.) Most Holy God, please never let me lay eyes on a Hillary, or a Michelle,
or a Roslyn Carter coin, PLEASE oh PLEASE, Lord...

Calvin Coolidge is in the house~!  His commemorative $1 coin only quietly traded. And so's his wife's. 

Back in the day, America also celebrated it's Natives, with the 'Indian Head Cent', the Indian Head nickle (you might've seen that one around this bloggie...), and a coin honoring Sacagawea,
the wife of, and guide to Lewis and Clark's vagabond journey across dangerous, evil Native Lands, to the Pacific Coast.

With ALL that said, I gotta tell you that I am embarrassed by our pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters, halves and bucks coins.

When did we begin worshipping humans with our coinage?  (more on that, below)

Once, we celebrated the achievement of our nation, our LIBERTY, our freedom from tyranny, WITH imaginative designs of freedom, true freedom, i.e. LIBERTY.

ONCE UPON A TIME, IN AMERICA, LIBERTY WAS A CHUBBY FAT GAL WITH LONG FLOWING HAIR.  THEN AROUND 1921, SHE WENT ON A DIET, TRIMMED AND BRAIDED HER HAIR, AND BECAME A HOT, GORGEOUS BEAUTY QUEEN.  now that's a great coin~!!

Well, that lasted until 1945, when our erstwhile, pitiful curmudgeonPresident Franklin D. Roosevelt died in office.

Liberty died with him also, in these United States, as America celebrated instead, the Deaths of our human leaders in it's coins, rather than the everlasting idea of her founding.

The idea of Liberty, once an honored position embellishing our coins, was reduced to just being a label tucked away, along the rim of every coin, around the best likeness of a dead man, instead of representing the center piece of our coins, being 
the constant, vital, living center piece, the commonplace reminder of our lives.

.... someday, you will have a $1.00 Obama coin in your hands. With the word "Liberty" highlighted around his holy image/halo.

 BTW, it is already worthless.

You know what that particular coin will be called... ; and sadly, incorrectly, it will be on a level par with the stunning Liberty Walking Half Dollars, Liberty dimes, Franklin half-dollars, Indian head nickles, and George Washington quarters, with "Illinois", or "progressive Wisconsin" on the obverse.

HOLY GOOSE CRAP, BATMAN!


Good riddance to state park geese
By Administrator, Sammamish, Washington Review

The number one problem that keeps people away from Lake Sammamish State Park, Washington, has been the overpopulation of Canadian geese — and the ankle-deep, goose poop.

If you’ve been to the park in the last couple of weeks, you may have noticed the geese are gone. After a couple of days of pounding rains, so is the abundance of goose excrement that covered the beaches and lawns.  Often, inches deep.
Former goose poop is now just fertilizer.

Of course, a straggler goose may swim ashore and find that the grass is greener at the state park, but for a moment in time, the geese have been relocated. We sincerely hope the state park will continue its program in future years, especially with new pristine sand slated to refurbish Sunset Beach for swimmers.  And it's verdant gardens, fertilized by, yes, you guessed it.... Gooshit.

Animals, people and parks are not always a good combination.

Chipmunks and birds crapping are one thing, but geese are similar to dogs in total content — although the average goose can’t even catch a Frisbee.

Dog owners have learned to accept the responsibility of keeping their hounds on a leash in the park and to clean up the dog excrement. Which leaves only one troublemaker, the geese.

Some of the geese — the Russian geese more so than the Canada geese, according to Ranger Rich Benson — had been getting very aggressive with park visitors. No one wants to be near a 30-pound goose when it decides it doesn’t want you to share the path.

“Scary” is how one, drenched-with-goose-shit, morning runner put it, last week.
