For the 40th time this year,
the 141st time since 2012 Sandy Hook,
a gunman opened fire in a school


Obama is wrong, the Democrats are wrong on trumpeting 'more gun restriction' laws after yesterday's mass shooting at an Oregon Community College in Roseburg.


"Gun Free Zones" such as the Umpqua Community College, or the Sandy Hook Elementary in New Town or the theatre in Colorado are prime locations for the deranged loonies carry-ing a personal grudge against society, against normalcy, against decency.

While the Democratic party won't dare to look at, much less cite the obvious statistics, cities with restrictive gun laws like Chicago, like Detroit, like Washington, D.C., like New York, they blame the abuse of our God-given right to own self-defense weaponry, as the 2nd Amendment guarantees us.  

Democrats do not care about people, only power over people.  Check out this dry, obscene press conference by Oregon's governor, Kate Brown.  DO YOU SEE ANY SHOCK, ANY SADNESS, ANY EMPATHY IN HER DELIVERY?  I see just a Liberal reading a prepared message, without emotion, without passion, as dry as toast in a desert:

Obama urges the media 'to politicize the issue'.   That's because he is a prissy,  anal-retentive Wussy.
Instead, we Americans should go out and purchase more handguns, in a further effort to protect our families.  And that's what true Americans are doing, and will continue to do.

Nobody listens to Zerobama anymore; nobody listens to Chicago mayor Rham Emmanuel anymore; nobody listens to Hillary or Nancy anymore; nobody listens to Democrats anymore.

don't rely upon laws passed by the democratic politicians~!

Finally A Couple Days to Exhale For Cardinal Fans

Wow, what a long, strange season it's been.
Note below, that St. Louis has 100 wins...

but because the Pittsburgh Pirates and even the Chicago Cubs (both teams are in the same division as the Cardinals) were themselves so good, that it took the Cardinals winning 100 games
to clinch the division.

In a more normal season, winning 100 games would put that team 10-12 games ahead of their nearest competition;
not this year, though.

It took until September 30, & 100 wins, a winning percentage of .629 to ward off the surging Pirates (96 wins) and Cubs (93 wins).

Those three National League central teams lead all the other playoff teams by from 1 to 10 games~!

And I predict that those Cubs will defeat the Pirates,
in their 1-game, Wild Card playoff next week--
and that will for the very first time ever, 
make the old Cardinals and Cubs rivalry even more sweet~!

The "Know It All"

In the past eight years,, I've run across people & friends who have told me, have told us, Leticia and me, that they have also been to a vacation destination  which we've  been to, and told us that somehow their vacations were just like ours, only better there.

I work with an annoying, Oklahoma Tax Commission  auditor (a 100% Anglo-american guy....)  who routinely puts down everybody else in our Indian Gaming section of the Tax Comm.... Whatever you've done, he and his party have done that already, & one better~,

therefore he is the virtual font of correct info on any given foreign vacation destination.

IF you suggest a random place (whether or not you've/he's
 been there),  he is the penultimate source for TOTAL information about that location.

Iceland?  Got it.  Baffin Island, Yeah.

South Africa?  Beeen there.  Saudi Arabia?  Ditto.

Israel?  He's "Fought" the Palestinians there.  But the worst parts of his monologues are his self-certain, delusional confidences he shares, that he is the authority on that precise location.

"I've Been Everywhere, Man" was a song written about him, because he claims that he is so very acutely and  intimately aware of every square inch of Earth's surface.

Right--, Huh, Keith??~!?

Sorry, you lying bag of crap that you are~ Fellow Ok.Tx. Comm. employee or not~!

For I don't believe that you've ever been to Lisbon, Portugal or to Rome, Italy, to Key West, Florida or to Nova Scotia, Canada, like my wife and I have.  

OPINING ON that which you are completely ignorant.
You will never come to our house again.

Hey Keith, have you ever been invited back, to any of your various destinations??
Didn't Think So....~

I'd love to compare Passports with you~  Have you ever been off this continent, really?

The facts/notations which you cite as 'personal observations' of the millions of "places you've visited", coincides well with simple Wikipedia synopsises~.

I will no longer try to expand conversations wherewith you are engaged, Keith, you overbearing LIAR.

Name Three World Leaders Who Don't Believe in God

Right up front, let me opine about "Climate Change, or Global Warming", whatever the catch-phrase of the day is for this topic:  It's hogwash, it's all fear mongering, it's much ado about nothing.

I believe in a Supreme Being, Whom I personally call "The Creator", but it's God, don't get me wrong.  And I believe that God, our Creator has infinite wisdom, and HAD THAT INFINITE WISDOM back when He chose to create our world, and us.

God, Our Creator, lives outside/beyond time, therefore He could foresee these days when the Earth He created would become populated with over 7 Billion souls.  This was/is not a surprise for Him, for He has ordained it, it is His Will.

Therefore, I cannot imagine an Omnipotent Creator, who created the Earth, suddenly being surprised that His planet Earth being plagued with so many inhabitants.
It is an affront to the Face of God, our Creator, to imagine that we Earthlings are causing climate change to the extent that it would kill us all, and destroy His planet Earth.

************  Now, with all that being said  ************

Barack J. Obama, Pope Francis, and the Chinese President, Won Hung Lo (whatever), all are threatening our well being with the fears of global suicide by Climate Change, because they themselves must not think that the Creator of the planet could not/did not foresee these events happening today.

Most sadly is this useless Pontiff, Pope Francis; for the other two Communists only recognize "Government" as their god, nothing higher.  Francis cannot fathom GOD, so he chooses worshipping a human-made form of god, "worldgovernment".
And consider taxation as the salvation of the masses.
Beware, and do not follow the words of any of these three imbiciles, for they know not what they speak and promote.

Que Sera, Sera, Whatever will be, will be.

(surprised you with that particular version on Vid, didn't I~?)

Some of My Favorite YouTube Videos

I need both to publish this now, and to bury it so it isn't very accessible

My favourite YouTube videos, previously published here.  This list may grow, it may shrink (in fact it's already shrunk). Thank you very much for your indulgences, but I had to get these documented.

MY POSTED FAVORITE VIDEOS (in no particular order):

No. 1    By far, my Super, all-time favorite and Hillary Clitnon's Presidential Theme song, "Mickey Xylophone" (I once thought this was Awful -- Now I'm Addicted to it)

No. 2  Although very many people won't or cannot identify with this jingle, to St. Louis Cardinal baseball fans, this is Our Nashunul Antthum:

~ I wept, snotted alot, listening to Ernie Hayes there, just now~
(for equality sake, another beer commercial) Now this, the very BEST Christmas commercial video, EVAHH~!

I have published literally tons of Scott Joplin's ragime here, but here are my 2 favourites:
1)  "Solace", which my husband composed for me:

(again weeping, snotting uncontrollably)

AND BY FAR, MY FAV. JOPLIN RAG, "The Pine-Apple Rag"

OK, Ok, Okay, add in "The Magnetic Rag", again played by the extraordinary Cory Hall:

All Scott Joplin at my funeral, be assured

"Love Lifted Me"  Sublime, Holy, Pristine, from Benny Hinn:

iframe width="560" height="420" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>

Others which have Played a Piv0tal place here on my bloggie:

"Blackbird", by Paul McCartney, The Beatles, ... my wife's Favourite, and therefore mine

Behold the bold simplicity of "I wanna hold your hand":

Finally, thank you Lord, the most-est played Music Video, probably my favourite video, that constant theme in my head, is none other than the themesong for Inspector Clouseau, of "Pink Panther" fame~  
Because who among us, has not ever had a similar Clouseau Moment in our lives, or more?
Then Behold, Your (MY) Life:

Regarding John Boehner's Resignation...

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) announced his resignation Friday at a time of record personal unpopularity, after leading Congress through a period where public approval of the body hit new record lows. Boehner could not lead the Congress where the American people insisted, thus he must resign in tears again today,
since he cannot fathom America's Will.

I'm glad your political career is over, and pleased that you have finally sobered, come to your senses.

BEST political decision you ever made, Mr. Speaker.
{1 down, and 1 to go}
Let's now all focus our Conservative attention on Mr. McConnell of the Senate.

Again, regarding your political career only, I submit this:
"I'm Glad You're Dead"

Sitting at your funeral
I'd have to say it's overdue

Our family cries
The preacher really tries

To make your life sound meaningful
I fight to keep a straight face

My heart it glows as you decompose
And I wonder

Can you hear me laughing
Cause I'm dancing on your grave

I'm glad you're dead
All the pain you spread

It disipates away
That why I gotta say

I'm glad you're dead
But something in my head

Won't let me forget
All the things you did

And I wonder
Can you hear me laughing
Cause I'm dancing on your grave ~!?

I'm glad you're dead~


Now Johnny, don't you dare reincarnate as some Washington lobbyist either, because I will follow you there, and destroy whatever industry you try to represent, with wooden stakes.

What If the Planet Jupiter Exploded?

Stupid question, asked of a stupid University of Cambridge astronomy professor:

QUESTION:    WHAT would happen to Earth if Jupiter in a hypothetical situation exploded?  What kind of magnitude would it be? And how would the astronomical community report that back to nations around the world? Would the asteroid belt be perturbed in any way?    Thank you...

ANSWER:   It depends in part what you mean by 'exploded'.  The solar system planets are quite widely separated, so at least initially, the effect would be rather small.  The orbits of the other planets would remain close enough to their present orbits that only astronomers would be able to tell the difference, and this will be true whatever type of 'explosion' you want.  As for any immediate, direct effects of the 'explosion', remember that space is a vacuum and so shock waves (sound, earthquakes, etc.) can't propagate.

If we go with a minimal 'explosion' and just magically cause Jupiter to vanish then the only other thing we would have to worry about is what happens to its moons and the asteroids.  The large moons that orbit close to Jupiter would probably all simply be ejected from the solar system and not pose any threat to anyone.  Some of the smaller ones further out might go onto elliptical orbits around the Sun, but there are not that many of them so the chance of a collision would be quite small.

The asteroid belt would likely remain much as it is, interactions with Jupiter actually generally serve to destabilise asteroids rather than the other way around.  The only possible cause for concern would be the Trojan asteroids, which share Jupiter's orbit and lead or follow it by 60 degrees.  These occupy stable regions created by the gravity of Jupiter, so if Jupiter were to disappear some of them might become unstable and come into the inner solar system.  This would likely be a long process rather than a fast one so we would probably have a reasonable length of time to deal with any new asteroid that appeared on a collision course with Earth and not be much worse off than our current situation.  In short, other than the disappearance of Jupiter from the sky, most people probably wouldn't notice the difference.

On the other hand, if you want a 'Death Star' style explosion rather than just a planetary vanishing act things would be a little different.  Jupiter is extremely massive, and all of that mass suddenly flying around the solar system is going to have some rather interesting effects.  Now most of the mass of Jupiter is gas (primarily hydrogen and helium), which the Sun would eventually blow away through X-ray radiation and the solar wind (though it might take some time to do so).  What effect the gas has depends partly on how far the explosion spreads it and so how dense it is, it could potentially exert drag on some asteroids, particularly the Trojans, and cause them to spiral in to the inner solar system.
If Jupiter has a rocky core (we aren't actually entirely certain if it does), then that would cause additional problems.  The core of Jupiter might be as more then 10 times the mass of Earth, by comparison the whole asteroid belt is less than 0.1% the mass of Earth.  Turning all of that into rubble and throwing it across the solar system would cause utter havoc, the conversation between a whole leader and an astronomer would probably go something like this:

Astronomer:  Jupiter has exploded, the core, which incidentally we know now was 10 Earth masses, has been pulverized and thrown out across the solar system.

World Leader:  That doesn't sound good, is any of it going to hit us?

Astronomer:  We haven't determined the exact numbers yet, but we expect the impacts to start within a year.

World Leader:  Within a year!?  What kind of damage are we expecting?

Astronomer:  It will probably start fairly localised, but the surface will reach saturation quite rapidly.

World Leader:  Saturation?

Astronomer:  Imagine carpet bombing the entire planet with the largest nuclear weapons you have.

World Leader:  Oh... Can we do anything about it?

Astronomer:  Nope.

World Leader:  So we're doomed then?

Astronomer:  Pretty much, yeah.

If Jupiter doesn't have a core, or if it is pulverized into small enough pieces in the explosion (think dust), then it might not be so bad.  The gas and dust would probably partially block out the Sun and cause and ice-age, though material raining down into the atmosphere might also cause Earth to heat up, so it might get hotter even with the Sun being dimmed.
Either way the environment would be pretty screwed up but some people might survive.

Fit For A (Confederate) King

Without doubt, one of the most unique private 
residences in the South is the Captain Reynolds' Castle 
in the small community of Cameron, Oklahoma.
Cameron is located in LeFlore County, between the cities 
of Fort Smith, Arkansas and Poteau, Oklahoma.

Constructed in 1890 of natural stone mined 
from a nearby quarry, the castle was built by 
Captain J.E. Reynolds for his wife, Felicity 
Turnbull Reynolds, who listed among her 
ancestors the prominent Mississippi Choctaw
Chief Greenwood LeFlore.

A Confederate veteran who had been 
wounded in Tennessee, Captain Reynolds 
came to LeFlore County after the Civil War 
and established his family just outside of 
Fort Smith where the community of Arkhoma 
exists today. Reynolds prospered in the 
Indian Territory and became a successful 
merchant and rancher. He was heavily 
involved in the development of coal mines in 
the region.

The Reynolds family, which grew to include a 
number of children, lived in their Arkoma 
home for more than twenty years until the 
Frisco Railroad was built southwest from 
Fort Smith to Paris, Texas, in 1886. Two 
years later a post office was established in 
the new railroad town of Cameron and in 
1890 Mrs. Reynolds secured title to a parcel 
of land there. Construction of the castle 
began a short time later.

Built of native stone mined from a quarry on 
the nearby hillside, the castle was built with 
two octagonal towers, thick stone walls and 
coal-burning fireplaces.

Captain Reynolds dedicated one room to 
preserving mementos of the Civil War, 
including flag-draped portraits of Southern 
generals. Late in life he wrote that he was 
"still an unreconstructed Confederate," 
explaining to a niece that he "surrendered 
(his) individuality" when Southern soldiers 
stacked their arms and surrendered.

In an interesting footnote to his life, the captain 
contacted another former Confederate officer, 
Virginia's "Gray Ghost" John Mosby, at the 
outbreak of World War I and offered to join 
him in forming a unit of former Confederates 
to fight in Europe.

Captain and Mrs. Reynolds lived in the castle 
at Cameron until around 1911 when he 
became involved in the development of the 
modern community of Arkoma. They built a 
new home there at about that time. Both died 
in 1920 and are buried in Fort Smith's 
historic Oak Cemetery, where their graves 
are marked by the statues of two women 
helping a wounded Confederate soldier. He 
had been rescued from a battlefield at New 
Hope, Georgia by the two daughters of his 
commanding officer.

Although the Captain's Castle is a private 
residence, it can be seen from Castle Street 
in Cameron. One of the few castles ever built 
in the South, it is listed on the National 
Register of Historic Places.

Joe and Jill Take On The Hill,
To Fool Alot of Voters

(note:  I've been holding that great blog Title under my hat since 2008.
~ Please feel free to laugh out loud, as you marvel at my brilliance. ;-) )

(IAP)  DOVER, DEL. 9/28/15 -- Comedian Joe Biden of Delaware today made it official:
He's in the race to Obama replace.

After months of emotional, internal debate, Mr. Biden has thrown his hat into the 2016 Democratic run for the nominee spot against the formerly formidable Hillary Clinton, Martin O'Malley, Jim Webb, Lincoln Chaffee and Deez Nuts.

Six.  Now we can play Texas Hold-Em~!

Last Sunday, September 20, the candidate's wife Jill Biden told NBC News that she supports her husband if he should choose to run for President; in the past, she had appeared hesitant to take on the challenge of a candidacy schedule.  But that time was also when she and Mr. Biden were dealing with his son Beau Biden's brain cancer condition and his care and treatment.
The younger Mr. Biden died in May of this year.

Sources have indicated Biden's been meeting with Democratic leaders during his travels around the nation over the past week to tell them he wanted to do it and thought there's room for him to make a credible bid if and when he did.

With the addition of Mr. Biden into the 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate's forum at this time, he will be included in the first Democrat candidate debate, scheduled for October 13 in Havana.

Said Mr. Biden, "I've given this decision much thought, much prayer and deep consultation with both my family and my political colleagues here in Washington, and we even spent three hours last night playing with my Ouija Board, all in an effort to arrive at a decision.  Well, here it is."

Adding, "You just wait a minute. I've got a quote somewhere on me, in some pocket, a great quote about my main opponent's "age and lack of experience"- -  Crap, where'd I put that??  I thought that it sounded great, maybe get me some laughs too....  Beau would've loved it, and my dear old dad, from Harrisburg, PA, he would've loved it too... Where is that damn quote? Hey, com'ere Jill..."

Replying to speculation that he would only run for one term, Mr. Biden replied "At this point I would not rule that out- I don't know- ask me again in 6 or 7 years."

Like to Eat One of Uncle Bryan's Oranges?

I leaft that entire web address above 'as is', read it)

"What's In The Box"?  Or perhaps the better question is, "Who?"

A revolution is upon us on Earth to move from a pollution and waste dependent society to one of sustainability and environmentally friendly initiatives. Trees are the lungs of our planet. The more trees we plant, the cleaner our air for generations to come. We are very proud to now offer our audience the Bios Urn, a funerary urn made from biodegradable materials that will turn you into a tree after you die. Inside the urn there is a pine seed, which can be replaced by any other seed or plant, and will grow to remember your loved one. Bios Urn transforms death into life through nature.

As simple as possible. When purchasing Bios Urn you will receive everything you need for planting your tree (except  the dearly departed). The urn is divided into two separate capsules: the upper capsule is a sealed unit to ensure the good condition of the seed until it begins to sprout; and the lower capsule is where you will store the ashes. Both compartments are kept completely separate until the urn itself bio degrades.

Have a great weekend everyone~!
Including my still-very-much-alive Uncle Bryan, "Bok Chuka".

Proper Product Placement

And with that sacrifice fly-ball out to centerfield, Texas Ranger's Mitch Moreland propels the Rangers into first place in the volatile American League West division.

The Rangers defeated in-state rivals, the Houston Astros, 6-5 Tuesday night in Arlington.

Then, the obligatory Powerade shower in front of the dugout, with a pretty reporter~!
