Washing-Tons (of) Cash

Would you sign a contract before you had read the whole thing?
Would you sign a blank check, made out to a stranger?
~Of course you would not, and neither would I.

But-- would you sign a contract before you had read the whole thing, IF you had already been given $5 million dollars, to do so?
"Here's five million dollars, sign this insignificant little contract which absolutely will not affect you in any way."   
Where's a pen, right??

Here's how the American public got the unpopular, "fast-track" TPP/TPA legislation foisted upon them:

Contributions to House members from forces favorable to "Obamatrade" outnumbered those from those opposed by a factor of 8.6 times, $197,869,145 to $23,065,231. The differences were even more stark in the Senate, with a total of $285,225,162 in financial incentives being meted out from supporting groups and only $27,569,149 from the opposition, over ten times as much. 

There were 32 House members with over a million dollars in contributions and many who were just below that threshold. In the Senate, only five Senators were below the one million dollar mark, and two of those, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Mike Lee (R-UT) voted no, and against betrayal of their country.

The formula in the House seems fairly simple, at least as far as rewarding those in leadership positions:  Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) got a cool $5 million and change, Mike McCarthy (R-CA) half that at $2.4 million, and Steve Scalise (R-LA) half again at $1.2 million. For Paul Ryan, the price of American sovereignty was $2.2 million.

In the Senate the picture is even uglier, and much more blatant. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “acquired” $9.2 million, John Cornyn (R-TX) $5.3 million and Orrin Hatch $4.2, the third member of the Senate trio of traitors forcing this upon us.

Marco Rubio (R-FL) pocketed $3.9 million for voting to tie us to a bill he never read, with his fellow presidential candidate Lindsey Graham (R-SC) earning” $3.4 million. 

Candidate Rand Paul (R-KY) voted against the package both times it came up in the Senate, but still gladly accepted $1.6 million in contributions.

Even Ted Cruz (R-TX), who first voted in favor of it but was eventually forced to recognize the will of the people in the interest of the survival of his campaign and cast a meaningless vote after the debate and outcome was determined.  But sadly, even Ted Cruz deposited $3.78 million dollars.

In Osceola 13's Own Words

Halley gives hours of work and dedication as ‘Chief Osceola’
By Dave Fiore

As a general rule, it is probably not a great idea to choose your college based on its symbol, but for Josh Halley, it seems to have worked out pretty well.

The senior accounting and finance major from Chipley not only admired FSU’s use of Seminole symbolism, but last year, became the 13th person to don the authentic Seminole dress as Chief Osceola and ride the legendary Renegade.

Originally from Tallahassee, Halley has attended Florida State football games his entire life, but it was not until his senior year of high school that he considered using his riding experience for anything but having fun with his friends.
“I started watching the horse before the game, and my parents encouraged me to go over and talk with the team,” Halley said

“Mr. (Allen) Durham introduced me around, and they mailed me an application.” Durham, son of program founder Bill Durham and a former Osceola himself, said earning the privilege of riding Renegade on Saturdays is a tough task. “First, there is the application process,” Durham said. “They must be an excellent equestrian, be a good student (3.0 GPA or better) and have the heart and desire to truly understand the importance and significance of what they are representing.”

After a visit to his home from the Renegade team to test his riding skills and a later interview, Halley was chosen as an apprentice, the first step toward being Chief Osceola.
“Being the apprentice means that you watch and work with the horses and trainers for at least a year, and if things work out, you may be able to ride,” Halley said. Now he gets to ride plenty, working with the horse two hours a day, five times a week in the “offseason” and up to 10 times a week during late summer and fall.

“I put in about 20 to 25 hours a week — it is like a part-time job,” he said. Although Halley is attending FSU on a full academic scholarship, he also receives a small scholarship from the Seminole Boosters for his efforts. Halley said all the time he and the horse spend together is crucial for success on Saturdays. “We do everything we can to be ready for any situation,” he said. “We go through the pregame routine over and over, creating all the different scenarios. Even when we try to create the worst day possible at practice, there is no way to truly simulate what happens when the horse is being hard-headed and then you add in 85,000 screaming fans, TV cables everywhere and the band playing. It is so overwhelming.

My job is to remain calm.” If he is not able to keep his own emotions in check, the horse will know. “If you are nervous or uptight, the horse will be, too. He knows what’s going on,” Halley said. “As soon as I get the signal to go, I just fall into what I have been training for. I don’t even think about it.” Halley admits that while he does remain focused, the actual charge across the field is no false display of emotion. “My adrenaline is pumping. I can’t help but yell like crazy and pump the spear in the air,” he said. “It all builds to the climactic planting of the spear on the logo and hearing the ‘Whooo’ from the crowd and thrusting my fist in the air. That is the best part. That’s why we do it.”

Even though he is at the center of such emotion before every home game, Halley understands that it is really about what he represents — and not himself personally. As he enters his final year as Chief Osceola, he said he remembers his three years as an apprentice and what it taught him. “I understand that my role is to portray Chief Osceola in a manner that brings honor to Seminole football and the Seminole people,” he said. “It is not about recognition for me; it is deeper than that. My friends know it’s me — that’s all that matters.”

Not Anymore. 
Young Josh Halley was murdered one week ago today.

"Two Mules" Killed in Panama City Altercation

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - Police say a fight over gumbo spices ended with the fatal stabbing of a Florida restaurant worker who was a former Florida State University mascot.

Panama City police say 33-year-old Caleb Joshua Halley was working at Buddy's Seafood Market last Tuesday when he and a co-worker, 26-year-old Orlando Thompson, began arguing about how much spice to add to the restaurant's gumbo. Authorities say Thompson slashed Halley across the torso, thrice, disemboweling Halley, and that Halley died last Thursday.
Thompson used a 15-inch knife.

Thompson is being charged with manslaughter.

According to the police, Halley portrayed Florida State mascot "Chief Osceola" from 2004 to 2007.

please take a moment to read this obituary:
Caleb Joshua (Josh) Halley

The heart, soul and spirit of a true Seminole Warrior went to live with his Maker on June 25, 2015.

Caleb Joshua (Josh) Halley was born November 27, 1981, in Panama City, Florida to Gene Halley and Vicki Loy. His early years were spent in Tallahassee, Florida playing baseball, football, hunting with his Dad and enjoying FSU sports. He was a wonderful big brother, "The Pro," to his little sister Megan. He protected and played with her always. He moved to Chipley in 1996 with his father and step-mother, Stephanie Halley and attended Chipley High School. Josh played baseball and varsity golf, was a member of the National Honor Society, Fellowship for Christian Athletes, Key Club, Bible Club, and Future Business Leaders of America. He was the first President of Washington County SWAT (Student Working Against Tobacco) and was awarded the Lawton Chiles Youth Advocacy Award for his outstanding contributions and service.

Josh graduated Chipley High School, Summa Cum Laude and was accepted into Florida State University's Honor's Program. At this time, Josh also began his honored service on the FSU Renegade Team as an apprentice to Chief Osceola until he earned his "seat" on the famous Appaloosa Renegade. In 2004, Josh became the 13th Chief Osceola and rode for the next four years. Josh's Seminole and Creek Indian heritage made him so proud to be part of FSU's dignified depiction of the historical Seminole leader Osceola, and his Appaloosa horse Renegade that began every home football game by riding to midfield with a burning spear and planting it in the turf.
Josh also earned a Varsity Letter at FSU for his service as Chief Osceola and while at FSU was a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.

After graduating from FSU, he was employed by Buddy's Seafood Market and enjoyed working with his some of his former high school classmates and friends. After several years at Buddy's, Josh took a four month break to fulfill a dream of hiking the Appalachian Trial. His funds ran out half-way through his trek but "Two Mules" (his given trail name from other hikers) had plenty of adventures to share. Josh had a passion for God's creation and was happiest outdoors, in the woods, in the water, or building one of his wood projects.

Josh is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Clarence E. Halley, Sr., Blanche Halley, Ruby Jackson and Billy Faye Burress, his step-grandmother; maternal grandparents John W. Loy and Romilda O'Dell Loy, and Aunt Geneva L Sugrue.

He is survived by C.E. (Gene) Halley, his father and stepmother, Stephanie Halley; Vicki Loy, his mother, and Megan Halley, his sister; Jim Burress, his grandfather; Jim Burress, III, his uncle; and over two hundred Halley relatives in Blountstown, Panama City and other Florida locations. Other survivors from his mother's family include many aunts, uncles and cousins from the Washington, D.C. area and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

~What is a Florida State University Honors Program graduate, namely Josh Halley, doing working for a seafood market making gumbo, in the first place??  
~Is this what a degree from FSU is worth these days??  

Our deepest condolences and sympathies to the Halley family in Panama City, Fl., for their loss at this time, plus my great admiration, regard, to both the Seminole and Creek tribes of Florida, for producing such a warrior as this.

"Smokin' 94.1 FM , KBUD"
In the Mile-High City

Wonder if this radio station plays "Smoke on the Water"??

This is the kind of entrepreneurial story I love best:  When a businessman or woman takes great advantage of a niche' in the economy, especially when said niche' is due to a governmental screw-up.
-- Like school kids selling salt and sugar in cafeterias....

Lovingly lifted from the stash of the Cannabist:

Weed culture moved from the air to the airwaves in Colorado last week

The first thing you notice after entering the Denver studios of “Smokin 94.1″ — Colorado’s first FM radio station devoted to marijuana enthusiasts, which debuted last week — is the lack of smell.
A giant bong and pot-themed posters decorate the offices, the music is in line with the brand (Bon Jovi’s “Blaze of Glory”), but the air is clean.

“It’s a non-smoking building,” said owner Marc Paskin, who doubles as DJ “Gary Ganja” during afternoon drive time. He’s additionally “O.G. Kush,” the announcer of the pot radio “4:20 News,” repeated at 5:20 p.m. “because our listeners can’t remember.”

The station is full of pot gags, but an attorney specializing in broadcast cases warns against what Paskin is doing.

San Diego millionaire Paskin bought KDCO-AM and FM translator K231BQ on 94.1 from James Merrilot of Mile High Sports for $875,000. He has put a total of $1 million into the project, not to promote marijuana, he says, and not just to cash in on Colorado’s legalization of weed either.
Paskin, bald but wearing a hat with dredlocks and a shirt emblazoned with marijuana leaves, sunglasses and shorts, allows, “I’m 66 and act like an 8-year-old.”

“I’m a ham,” Paskin said. But his other reason is “to bring the fun back to radio. All of Denver is corporate radio. This is the way radio was in the ’60s.”

Paskin maintains his audience is age 45-plus, so he’s not targeting those under 21 who are legally prevented from using weed. Still, might he be at risk of Federal Communications Commission fines?

~ take a sample-hit online, to Smokin 94.1 FM, here:

“Nobody knows the answer. If anyone tells you it’s illegal (to program a radio station this way), it’s only their opinion,” he said.

The DJs will never advise listeners to smoke weed, nor say they are stoned on the air, Paskin said.
Gary Ganja says “smokin’ high will get you a DUI.”
Meanwhile, taglines run on the station espousing pot humor: “Smokin 94.1, one hit after another (cough cough).”

Asked if he imbibes, Paskin had a ready answer: “I don’t remember.” Likewise DJ “Stoney Reynolds” (formerly known as Bo Reynolds on KALC-105.9 FM) said, “My mother listens, so if I answered, I’d be grounded.”

In non-reality-ed news,   Dr. Johnny Fever announced that he will come out of forced retirement, and move to the Denver area.

My Changing Thoughts on Nibiru, "Planet X"

 ***UPDATE (6/28/15):  Whew! It's only pesky Mars~

There is a website I go to sometimes, just for a laugh, to see what the real kooks way out there, are thinking.  It's called "Before It's News (dot)Com", you've probably heard of it, or been there, too.

I look there to read about "Planet X", sometimes called "Nibiru" or "Planet 7X".

In short, it supposedly is a planet with a very elliptical orbit around both our brilliant sun and its' twin, a brown dwarf star, which is stationed way way way way out there, past Pluto, somewhere in the Oort Cloud.  The orbit of this mysterious planet is theorized to be some 3600 years, though one (very convincing) investigator proposes that Nibiru's orbit is far less:  around, between 292 and 450 years, averaging 316 years....  I don't know why there is such discrepancy.

Anyways, there is alot of fear that Nibiru is coming around our sun pretty soon, and this hyperbole has been going on for decades, thus the ridicule by most astronomers.  

Because Nibiru is claimed to have brought about the Great Flood of Noah's time, then the seven plagues of Egypt, before the Hebrews left there; but that time frame is not 3600 years.

Back to that (very convincing) investigator:  His name is Gill Broussard, and he has done some truly, amazing research on Planet 7X, a.k.a., Nibiru, the Destroyer, Wormwood.

There's an impressive, 2+hour-interview of Broussard, here:

But, this little bloggie is interested in today, tomorrow, and March 26, 2016.  And I think that I saw Nibiru for myself last night, right here on this computer, COMING AROUND OUR SUN, TO SWING PAST EARTH IN NINE MONTHS, ACCORDING TO MR. BROUSSARD.


ON SOHO's Solar Observation website, I clicked through to the MPEG movies of the Sun, for June 25, then June 24, then June 23, .... back through June 16, 2015, when it was not there.  It is something in orbit around our sun, & huge.  

And as predicted, there's a really, really big something emerging from the sun.  No, it's not Jupiter, because Jupiter and Venus can be seen just after sunset, about to converge themselves.

This planet is a whopper, and it is at 2 o'clock from the sun, in this short 3-second video, below:

Earthlings should see this visitor in the skies come September, maybe earlier; and according to Broussard, it will bring disaster to Earth, next spring, March 21- March 26, 2016...

Here below is the MPEG movie of our sun, one week earlier, June 18, 2015, just before the solstice...:


See it, huge planet X, emerging from behind the sun?

With luck, here is the June 21, solstice view of both the Sun and the object:  Ehh, no luck.  Instead, go to the Soho Solar website yourselves, and download each day's view of the sun, and it's orbiting visitor.  Scroll way down to the very bottom of the list, and look for

The Threads of A Threat




And Now, The Gay Teens of the 21st Century

20150626.  A day that will live in infamy.

"... we'll have a gay, old time!  Wilma!"

What is crystal clear to me is that America is no more.  America is a thing of the past.  When five, immature adolescents on the Supreme Court can RE-intrepret ancient rules regarding the holy bond called "Marriage", as announced this very morning in Washington, A.C.D.C.

Call it just another day in ObamaHell....

... so I remembered the Flintstones cartoons, from back in our own stone-age of Television, wherein man married woman only,
yet promising a "gay old time".  

What nostalgia.  WAIT--  I'm too young to be remembering "nostalgia", dammit~!

So there's this from Anderson Cooper, the pale, little faggot from CNN, from 2010 heralding the upcoming demise of America:

This week (November, 2010), public outcry reached deafening levels as the classic ABC animated sitcom The Flintstones was lambasted for its perceived intolerance and insensitivity towards homosexuals and their lifestyles. The uproar was largely unexpected, considering how long any Flintstones treatment of the issue would have already been on record.

“For over a half century now, The Flintstones theme song has cavalierly touted that when you’re with them you will have a ‘gay old time,'” CNN anchor Anderson Cooper said on the air Tuesday. “This sort of flip treatment of the homosexual lifestyle, and that it could possibly apply to a family in the stone age, is offensive and outrageous. What are they trying to say about the homosexual community? That it is for neanderthals? For cavemen? How can any reasonable person not be mortified when they hear this song?”
The piling on Fred, Wilma, Barney and the gang got worse when Cooper appeared on “The View” Thursday morning.  When co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked Cooper if he felt the beloved cartoon show was damaging to young people struggling with their sexuality, he responded, “Almost without question.  With the recent surge of suicides among gay teenagers, where might they turn for guidance and understanding, for sympathy and information?  To television, naturally, which has long been a beacon for learning and knowledge and truth.  And then imagine what they find in the town of Bedrock – in itself a pretty lewd reference for a children’s program, no? – but rampant mockery at their expense!  It’s indefensible and shocking.  We should all be striving for more acceptance and sensitivity, and instead The Flintstones are spitting in the collective homosexual face.”



I've held back this private information for years, not knowing where or when to disclose it:  
But it has been learned through archaeological anthropological analysis, that Fred Flintstone murdered his best friends and neighbors, Barney and Betty Rubble, in cold blood, when Flintstone learned Barney's intimate, gay-old-times-desires towards him....

I do recall now, that the homos Barney and Betty Rubble found and adopted baby 'Bam-Bam', whom they found abandoned on their porch-- In a blatant attempt to appear 'normal' in the Bedrock community...

It happened in Bedrock, after Wilma returned from Pebbles' school's PTA meeting.

When the verdict was announced a jubilant Flintstone pumped his fist in the air and shouted “Yabba dabba doo!”   When asked about his immediate plans, he said that he hopes to get his job back at the Slate Rock and Gravel Company.
“I’m also going to write a book about my experience as a neanderthal in the cro-magnon’s justice system.   I’m going to dedicate the rest of my life to finding the real killers and helping my people.  I’m going to become a Hetero-activist in my community.”

He also intends to sue the City of Bedrock for false imprisonment.

Explain This!??

This is weird.
This cellphone video was made near Greenwood, Indiania on June 12, 2015, when a storm was rolling in.

What is that beam of light darting around in that cloud?  The video is 2:26 minutes long, but if you only watch the first half, have you ever seen or heard of anything like this?


no, not that imbecile in Washington, D.C.~

Today is the 23rd day of Hissa Hvshi, 2015.  And I would like to take this opportunity to endorse Minko (CHIEF) Gary Batton in the upcoming election for Choctaw Chief.  Heyyah~!!

Chief Batton is a man with a huge heart for the Choctaw people;
he demonstrates how much he cares, by the casual way he recognizes and can remember Tribal members names, even after more than a year's passage of time, since first meeting that person.

I've witnessed this so often,
at various gatherings, pow-wows, even my old job at McAlester's casino, it is ridiculous.  

This man was destined to become a leader of our Choctaw Nation.

He's been a dynamic catalyst in the growth of Choctaw businesses, this I can also tell you from personal experience-- he's a warm man who is easy to get to know and an easy man to like~!,
His personal, family life could be a Christian, instruction manual for every family in America.

I endorse Minko Gary Batton for election, on July 11, and I hope you fellow Choctaws will make it a point to get out and vote For
The Continued, Amazing Growth of Our Tribe.

The following is lovingly lifted from the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma website:

  • Chief Gary Batton is the 47th Chief of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, the third largest Indian tribe in the United States. Chief Batton assumed his current position with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma on April 28, 2014, upon the retirement of Chief Gregory E. Pyle.
  • Gary Batton began his career with the Choctaw Nation in 1987 as a clerk in the Purchasing Department while he was attending Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Upon graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management in 1989, he accepted the position of Deputy Director at the Choctaw Nation Housing Authority. While at Housing, he was responsible for the management of Housing Authority operations and established several programs including the Choctaw Nation Drug Elimination Program, Family Investment Center Program and the Choctaw Nation Boys and Girls Club.
  • In 1997, he was appointed to the position of Executive Director of Health. His first undertaking after stepping into the role was replacing the Choctaw Nation Hospital, a former Tuberculosis Center constructed in the 1930s, with the state-of-the-art Choctaw Nation Health Care Center, (In Talihina) the first tribally funded health facility in the US (emphasis mine).
  • He continued to expand and improve the Choctaw health system by adding clinics in Idabel, Stigler,  Poteau, and Atoka and replacing or expanding outdated, inadequate clinics in Hugo, Broken Bow and McAlester. He constructed a new facility for adult inpatient alcohol and drug treatment and a hospitality house for patients traveling long distances for appointments at the health care center in Talihina. Concerned by the fact that some tribal businesses were not profitable and impressed with the growth and improvements to the health system, Chief Pyle appointed Gary to the position of Assistant Chief in May 2007. Gary immediately t
  •  to expand th
  • ook action to grow the businesses and improve the profitability for the benefit of Choctaw members.
  • As the Assistant Chief, Gary’s focus changed from improving the health system for tribal members to growing and improving the entire Choctaw Nation for the benefit of tribal members. Among his numerous duties, he served as Chairman of the Choctaw Nation Business Committee where his first initiative was the development of an economic plan that consisted of $385 million in construction
  • e gaming facilities in Durant, Grant, McAlester and Stringtown. This plan was a boost to the economy in the 10 ½ counties and created more than 700 jobs for the area. Under Gary’s guidance, the profitability for all Tribal businesses improved with an overall increase of 69%.

Get those ballots you got in the mail, & mark "Gary Batton",
just as Leticia and your Local Malcontent will, proudly~!

The Tragedy of Charleston

The barbaric murders of nine Christian worshipers at Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church is such an horrible tragedy,
an unthinkable act of hatred.  
Remember these 9 innocent lives~ lived in peace,
the peace of Jesus Christ, yet killed by the unjust hatred of Satan:

Rev. Clementa Pinckney,
Pinckney, 41, was a pastor at Emanuel AME and a widely respected state senator. "Sen. Pinckney was a legend," said fellow state Sen. Marlon Kimpton on CNN. "He was the moral compass of the state Senate."
Susie Jackson,
The 87-year-old was a longtime church patron and Ethel Lance's cousin.
Daniel Simmons,
The 74-year-old was a ministry staff member at Emanuel AME and the former pastor of Greater Zion AME Church in the nearby town of Awendaw.
Sharonda Coleman-Singleton,

Coleman-Singleton, also a pastor at the church, was a track/field coach at Goose Creek High School near Charleston. "I saw her at work everyday and she always had a smile on her face," Chris Pond, the baseball coach at Goose Creek, said.
Ethel Lance,
The 70-year-old grandmother had worked at Emanuel AME for more than three decades. Her grandson Jon Quil Lance told the Post and Courier newspaper in Charleston that Lance was a hardworking Christian and "the heart of the family."
Tywanza Sanders,
Lady June Cole, the interim president of Allen University, said on Thursday that Tywanza Sanders, a 2014 graduate of the small historically black university in Columbia, S.C., was killed in the shooting. Cole called Sanders a "quiet, well-known student who was committed to his education" and who "presented a warm and helpful spirit."
Cynthia Hurd,
"Cynthia was a tireless servant of the community who spent her life helping residents, making sure they had every opportunity for an education and personal growth,"
Myra Thompson,
Archbishop Foley Beach of the Anglican Church of North America wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday that Myra Thompson, the wife of the Rev. Anthony Thompson of Charleston's Holy Trinity REC Church, was killed in the attack.
Rev. Depayne Middleton-Doctor.
The 49-year-old mother of four sang in the church choir.

The suspected killer has been captured alive, and will stand trial, and receive his punishment.

The New Age of Choice of Gender
And Racial Identity



Today, our country's Liberals parade their controversial misfits in our faces as the New Normal:  People who not only choose their gender,, long after birth, but their race too, long after birth.  This is getting sickening, and a sure sign that America is Going To Hell, fast track.
Our mainstream, news announcers are now openly, proudly Homosexual; Our mainstream heroes, once Men, are now old women.

Several high-profile people here in America, have declared that their race is different, much different, from their parents'.  
You Choose who you are, and the rest of us must accept that.  


Caitlyn Jenner, the former "Bruce Jenner", ignited this wildfire; he/she/IT has not had gender reassignment surgery, has not had her penis hollowed out or her testicles nipped yet, but she insists her name is Caitlyn.  


Then there is the Caucasian leader of the NAACP in Spokane, Washington, a white bitch who insists that she is Black, despite her parents' assertion to the otherwise, LIED about who her Negro father is,  amid overwhelming evidence that she is a failed and guilt-ridden, embarrassed blanch babe.  
Racial denial: Both her parents are Caucasian, and yet she insists she is Black, and the world accepts her claims~!!???
HELLO, I'M THE GENUINE SOUL OF (supply name of Liberal hero from the past):  Listen to me!

I, your local malcontent, have decided now, henceforth,
that instead of a F/B Choctaw man, I am an Asian woman with Mexican bloodline, which has strangely bright Irish red haired (+everywhere!), and I am in the direct bloodline from Allah, Ben Franklin, and Sitting Bull, and was once married to Scott Joplin.


I, your female, Asian, dyke (OH, I forgot to disclose that part~!) Asian hottie, NOW, am running for President of the United States.
Vote for Me, and I love you long time!!

Post: No Bills

Say, do you need some water?  Because we've got so much right now, and we are about to get another 2-months-worth, this week; so we can spare some, if you need some.

So on Saturday, tropical storm 91L was born in the central Gulf of Mexico, and instantly expressed an interest to visit Texas' coastline (who wouldn't?), so it aimed for Victoria.  The storm which now has chosen its gender-identity, and calls itself Tropical Storm Bill, arrives there late this morning, Tuesday, June 16.

Bill will then visit us here in Yanush beginning very late to-night, and maybe staying around here for the rest of his life (again, who wouldn't?).

Bill will bring with him buckets more rain;
predictions are in the 8-12 inch range, because Bill does not like to bar-b-que, golf, or driving around in a convertible.
The following is copied from Wunderground 
(not the Weather Underground, LOL):

...  Regardless of whether or not 91L becomes Tropical Storm Bill before it makes landfall, the system will post a distinct threat of serious flooding over a broad swath from eastern Texas into southern and southeastern Oklahoma. Both states just experienced the wettest single month in their history, and soils remain near saturation. Even without such a worrisome precondition, systems like 91L are notorious for producing enormous amount of rain, sometimes with tragic results. 91L has a large and very moist circulation, and steering currents will be weak as the system slowly moves around a strong, hot dome of high pressure over the Southeast. 
Slow-moving systems need not be intense prior to landfall to generate huge rainfalls once they’re inland, as demonstrated by a number of Gulf of Mexico systems during June and July, when upper flow is often listless. 
Tropical Storm Allison is a textbook example: in June 2001, Allison drifted into east Texas, then circled back southward and made a second landfall in Louisiana, dumping as much to 38” of rain over six days across parts of the Houston area.

Tropical storm Bill is less welcome here in Yanush, than
these other Bills are:

Can't You Just Hear That Shark Theme?

Bom-bhah, Bom-bhah, Bom-bhah, Bom-bhah, Bom-bhah, Bom-bhah, Bom-bhah, Bom-bhah,

It's not Funny.  
Two teenagers lost their arms in shark attacks
 in North Carolina over the weekend.

It's serious, in fact.  Sharks inhabit the shallow waters off North Carolina!
A 12-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy received life-threatening injuries after being bitten by sharks in Oak Island Sunday evening.  

The 12-year-old girl from Asheboro, NC was severely injured in the first incident. Several agencies including Oak Island Police and Fire, St. James Fire, Brunswick EMS and the Air Link Helicopter responded to the scene. The victim was airlifted to New Hanover Regional Medical Center,  The girl's left arm was amputated below the elbow. She also suffered tissue trauma to her her left leg, according to officials at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. 
A 16-year-old male from Winston Salem, NC lost an arm after being bitten by a shark. Officials say he was also approximately 20 yards from the shore in waist deep water.
The male victim was also airlifted to New Hanover Regional Medical Center and his arm was amputated below the shoulder, according to hospitals officials.

"Every agency has mobilized its resources to address the situation and our thoughts and prayers are with the families at this time," said Oak island Town Manager Tim Holloman.

"REST IN Peace Corps"
The Untold Stories

I have had a very busy week, completing backed-up work which went abandoned due to the flooding in my part of Oklahoma last month, so I have not been blogging that much this week~

That said, I wanted to throw up something here for the weekend, to let my one and only, single fan in Anchorage know that I'm still around.... LOL

Something funny for the weekend, a weekend which will find my wife and me toiling the soil to plant a garden, clean up the flotsam that litters our backyard from the flooding, and get every one's minds off their worries for awhile.

Not. Able.

I couldn't find anything wholesome, uplifting, funny to share really, from the Internet over the past three days, even the jokes, even the Reagan jokes,,, just did not move me.

But here's what did move me:  And It's not all that good.

Did you know that a far-too-big-a number of Peace Corps. volunteers, are killed each year?

I didn't either.  While I've never thought much about the Peace Corps., started by President Kennedy, back in 1961, the number of eager, ambitious, ill-prepared American youths who have died, or been murdered in their country of placing, is too disturbingly high.

No, we don't hear that particular statistic when hearing, seeing the Peace Corps. advertisements-- but our kids do die in service to some country, either the United States or their choices, placement locales.

There is even a website devoted to these fallen, mis-directed individuals, "Fallen Peace Corps Volunteers Memorial Project".

This is under-reported in our United States, as one might expect it to be, given the nature and design of the Peace Corpses' appeals to young, college graduates.

Two volunteers already this year, 2015
David Ripley, in Rwanda, and Robert Lehman, in Tanzania, have died oddly; three in 2014; mostly in Africa and Nepal, and in the Philippines (where the majority of the murders have occurred).
While these young people seem to have been ideologically progressive, maybe socialistic in their being, this doesn't detract one whit from the fact that the Peace Corps. keeps sending in green volunteers into nations at war, possibly facing death.

Take a look at the list of nations for goodness' sake, where each of our innocent, non-warring, American children have been killed- it's a list of backward Muslim countries like Namibia and Rwanda and Chad.
For instance, the most recent odd death of David Ripley, lovingly lifted from

David Ripley
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 2, 2015 – Peace Corps Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet is saddened to confirm the death of Peace Corps volunteer David Ripley. David, 29, passed away while visiting Tanzania on March 31, 2015.

“David was a deeply compassionate and empathetic person, which in turn made him an extraordinary Peace Corps volunteer,” Hessler-Radelet said. “He was committed to putting his experience to work improving the lives of those in his community of service, and was seen as a leader among his fellow volunteers. We are devastated by his loss, and the thoughts and prayers of the entire Peace Corps family are with the Ripley family during this difficult time.”

A native of Palmetto, Fla., David served as a health volunteer in Rwanda. He worked at community health centers and read books to children regularly at the Kigali Reading Center. He was passionate about using technology to deliver clean water to his community, and was making great progress.
Peace Corps staff in Rwanda remember David as positive and caring, and someone who was respected by his colleagues and Peace Corps staff. They said that David was “dedicated to helping the people of Rwanda and took his service seriously.”

David was committed to serving others. Prior to Peace Corps, he worked as a charge paramedic and earned certifications as a paramedic/EMT and a firefighter in his home state of Florida. He graduated cum laude from Saint Petersburg College in Saint Petersburg, Fla.

David Ripley, 29, a trained paramedic who was assigned to work in Rwanda, died Tuesday from an aneurysm, his father, Bruce Ripley, said Saturday.
“They said it was a weak spot in his arteries,” he said. “It was out of clear blue.”
The news came to a shock to the family; David Ripley had never demonstrated issues with his heart....

Or that tragic obituary for Peace Corps. volunteer, Julia Campbell, who was murdered in 2007 in the jungles of the Philippines:

Julia Cecele Campbell
MANILA, April 18, 2007 – U.S. Peace Corps Director Ron Tschetter, along with the U.S. Embassy in Manila, is saddened to confirm the death of U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer Julia Campbell, who disappeared on April 8 while hiking in Banaue, Ifugao Province, Northern Luzon. Search parties discovered Ms. Campbell’s body near Barangay Batad, Banaue town this morning.
Philippine authorities will make the final pronouncement of cause of death.

Ms. Campbell was reported missing on April 11 after failing to show up for several appointments. She was last seen on Sunday, April 8 in the Banaue area. She reportedly intended to hike in a hilly area near Batad, 1.5 kilometers east of Banaue town, and was unaccompanied.

From Fox News (.) Com, , THIS:

Philippine police launched a criminal investigation after soldiers found the body of a missing American Peace Corps volunteer in a shallow grave Wednesday in a mountainous northern town where she disappeared while hiking 10 days ago.

and sadly, this news about Julia:
Blows to the head killed a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer who was found buried in a shallow grave in a northern Philippine mountain village, officials said Saturday after an autopsy.

Julia Campbell, 40, of Fairfax, Virginia, suffered "multiple blunt traumatic injuries of the head," police Chief Inspector Mamerto Bernabe, a pathologist who headed the autopsy, told reporters at a suburban funeral parlor.
