MR Rock Coroner RIP Blu.

Friends, this is probably one of the hardest death posts I have had to post. This morning our community lost one of our own. Although he never posted on here just about everyone knows Danny Abernathy or as we all knew him as “Blu” He was a mainstay of the OKC Music Scene for most of the early ’70s either with his band Sissortail or as a studio owner he touched many band’s lives. He will be missed by many.

Oklahoma needs a Competent Weather Forecaster….

Huskysooner, you need to move back to Oklahoma and become a big TV Weather Star!!!… The one’s we have now predicted for two weeks that we were going to have a bad ice storm here in the OKC area this past weekend – Yes, it did get close, BUT, after it missed us Friday, they predicted it was going to be even worse in OKC Saturday than what was originally predicted for Friday!!… Guess what, Duh, they missed it again… A little light freezing rain that turned to rain today (Sunday)….

Now, don’t get me wrong, I didn’t want a dangerous Ice Storm, and, I went out and spent over $100 dollars on an indoor propane heater, car charger for my iPhone, LED camp lights, extra propane bottles, and extra batteries – PLUS – putting up with the largest crowd of Bozo’s I’d seen since the Christmas Season at Wally World doing the same thing….

THAT’S what I’m really mad about – Money that I really didn’t have, spent on something that I really didn’t need right now… Argh!!! Bonehead Oklahoma Weather NON-Forecasters… Of course, I’m sure I will need the stuff sometime down the line… It would just have been nice to have had a little heads-up on when to stockpile supplies so you can plan for it and not face total financial ruin!!! (well, Being me, I probably wouldn’t have paid attention to the warning – maybe that’s why I’m mad – I DID pay attention to this one and got boned)…

So-o-o-o, Come Back, Huskysooner – We can really use your skill-set….

MRambler – Netflix Binge Watcher

Yeah, somebody on this Blog – Jek (Not mentioning any names Ha!)… Got me hooked up (For Free-To ME) on his Netflix account, so part of the reason that I’ve been gone so long is that binge-watching takes up a lot of time!!!!.. BUT, maybe, JUST MAYBE, I’m back… We’ll have to see…

Oh, Yeah, Alan Alda – BOY, not only has he aged badly, he’s turned into the “Bad Guy” that you have no choice but to hate “With A Vengeance” – a scum-sucking low-life politician on “The Blacklist”….

Just Updated this Blog-O….

I actually plan to get back to posting again this year!  Ha!….  At least, that’s the plan…  I just updated the OS on this thing-O so have at it!!!!…..  AND….

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!

Election 2016 and other hilarity

High everyone, I know, it’s been a while. I personally have been hauling around the country trying to keep ahead of our little terrorist/furbot PDB and clean up after him. What an election cycle huh? Who could have seen this coming? I mean the Donald, I saw Hill Dog from right after the last election. So as they say in Chicago, vote early and often. …..GET BACK HERE YOU LITTLE FURRY BAST…!

Oklahoma House Bill SJR 68

All my friends who watch TV in Okla. have undoubtedly sen the ads lately about Anheiser Busch having to leave Ok. if the bill passes. So I did a little research ( As all informed Voters should do) Here’s the short version as I see it.
If it passes the House and Senate it will then go to a vote of the PEOPLE in Nov as ALL Laws should.
This Bill House Bill SJR68 basically means that we could have Cold Beer in Liquor stores, Over 3.2 beer and Wine in Grocery and certain Convenience Stores. What AB is crying Foul over is the fact that it would limit the way that the Brewer can Distribute their product.
That being said, AB purchased the local Distributor here in OKC a few years back (Many of you have seen the new place at 240 and eastern) Mainly because they could, and to eliminate a middleman in their supply chain.
As a Truck driver who hauls into that place quite often I am interested in how this is going to work. The Bill means that they would have to go back to the way it was before and there be a 3rd party distributor in OKC as there is in other parts of the state. The “Jobs that would be lost” would be Lost to AB not to Oklahomans, Most of those employed there would be employed by the Distributor that comes in or is created. The supply Chain that the consumer sees would remain the same. It just means that AB would not have the monopoly on their Beer Distribution in Central OK.
I must add that the Beer industry is one of the most Truck Driver UNFRIENDLY industries in this country. I haul into and out of 2 different AB breweries and Miller Coors in Golden, CO. on a weekly basis and hate having to go there to load they want us to be on time but, don’t care if it takes them 8 hours to load us. So I personally cannot sympathize with AB crying Foul.
So as I have said Look into things for yourself investigate before you vote, don’t just vote one way or another because of TV ads.

Happy New year 2016…..

Yep, it’s 2016 already, and, boy, was I ever ready!!…  2015 was definitely an off-year for me….  Hadn’t been around the Blog very much this past year, BUT, I hope to change that and get back into the usual off-the-wall stuff we are known for (somewhat) (Ha!)….

Anyways, hope everybody has a great new Year’s Day and hope to see everyone start posting again….  You too – Anon Ha!……

Merry Christmas 2015

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, To all of our Little Community. Hope you all got everything you wanted. J.J.

Happy Thanksgiving 2015

Happy Thanksgiving all you that are left.(Only the Strong Survive) Hope you are all well and surrounded with family and friends, food, football, and all that makes life worthwhile.

Glad to know I’m not alone when I notice nonsensical assertions….

One thing I really hate is when the news ‘reports’ on something that instantly sets off my B.S. meter, and I appear to not only be among the few people that notice something awry, but am actually labelled ‘sexist’, ‘insensitive’, or ‘difficult’ for calling the conclusions into question. Latest example, the perceived ‘wage gap’ between men and women. Fortunately, a guy named Maddox decided to put a lot more effort into answering my concerns than my lazy ass was willing to.

 

(If you didn’t already know, Maddox is a long-time blogger that runs The Best Page In The Universe as well as his own YouTube channel. I came across it in ’99, and it is highly recommended reading!)

 

Who says spirituality is boring?

Was referred to this by my good friend and co-worker Rahman, a Sunni muslim from Bangladesh. At first I thought it was going to be something serious or critical of the West, but then I listened to the whole thing and it turned my initial assumptions on their head. I have a cousin in New Mexico that is about MR’s age, and leans towards the alienating type of bible-thumping. She’s certain of the FOX news assertion that Muslims are all part of the vast conspiracy to usurp the Constitution and make Sharia law the rule of America, and one day even our ‘friends’ will mindlessly slaughter the rest of us in our sleep. (Much like the fears that the Vatican was going to somehow take over the reins of America if a certain Catholic was ever elected president in 1960.)  The speaker is an Indian mystic named Chandra Mohan Jain (also known as Rajnessh or Osho), and as with many ‘spiritual leaders’ of any faith, he was not without his controversies. There’s no doubting his charisma and sense of humor though, and as our world seems to have shrunk and cultures collide with greater frequency, I can’t help but think that the world might run a little smoother if we all took a step back from our extremes and prejudices and gave the courtesy to others to hear their views, and we might all find something to share a laugh over. And isn’t that the best medicine?

Support Your Local Blog

I gotta rant somemore. I love this blog, I know that I don’t post as much as I should as we all don’t. But I’m thankful that we have this platform to post our ideas thoughts and current happenings. I visit many other blogs that are attached to many of my favorite causes and I find that they give their authors and readership a place to convey differing points of view, concerns, or alternatives to the stated facts of certain events in the history of our great country. I hope that you all take away from our efforts a new understanding of our world, and I like hearing your ideas and takes on the subjects that we write about. Seems like the social media sites ie:Facebook etc don’t give the reader a very large platform to expound on their ideas the way that a Blog does. So I hope that you still appreciate this forum the way that I do.
Now to quote Miss Emily Lattella Former SNL weekend update commentator: “Never Mind”

Waco: Part 2

Why? because one needs to know the history of the sect to understand why the events of Feb.-Apr. 1993 happened and why.

[Sorry MR this one is a little longer because there is a lot of info that’s relevant]

In Early 1955 a Oilfield worker and Seventh Day Adventist from Odessa, TX. Named Benjamin Roden while working on his old Chevy one day had a vision wherein he was told that he was to be “The Branch” referred to in scriptures, and he was to go to Waco and Lead his people to the promised land.

In Oct.1955 Ben and his wife Lois came to Mt. Carmel Center in Waco with their son George and Daughter and a new follower, a young man named Perry Jones, a person who would play a key role in later events.

April 22 1959 was the date Florence Houteff the widow of founder Victor Houteff and it’s leader after his passing in Feb of ’55 declared that the “Day of Judgement” would happen. Needless to say it came and went without a Rapture.

After this day that came to be known as the “Second great Disappointment” the Group all but Disbanded. During this time the DSDA and the SDA were in talks to gain official recognition of the group, as these talks broke down the executive board of the Davidian Seventh Day Adventist group voted to dissolve the organization and return all moneys held by the church to it’s membership.

In 1962 the Rodens returned to Waco, Laid claim to the 77 acres near the town of Elk, and attempted to seize the bank accounts of the now defunct group.

Oh yeah I almost forgot during all of this a profound thing happened on Aug 17, 1959. One Vernon Wayne Howell was born.

Not much is known about the group that came to be known as the Branch Davidian Seventh Day Adventist Association during the mid to late ’60s except the Rodens made several trips to Israel to try to get the government to allow the group to immigrate so that when the Prophesy was fulfilled ( This time For real, No Really this time) they would be in the holy land. And during one of the trips that lasted 3 years Lois Roden was by herself in Israel, apparently Ben got a little lonely back in Waco and tried to molest his own Daughter.

During the ’70s things were just progressing along as things tend to do, The group having been refused permission to immigrate, continued to Farm, Worship, and live a Spartan but peaceable life at Mt. Carmel until 1977 when while studying at 2am Lois Had a Vision that convinced her that The Holy Spirit ( you know the Trinity, Father, Son, Holy Spirit) was feminine. Talk about your revelations!

After announcing this to the SDA world, they finally were convinced that the BDSDA were Blasphemous and “Cookoo For Coco Puffs” and convinced all their churches to sever any and all ties to the group and it’s leadership and membership. All Members were “Dis Fellow shipped by their origional SDA Congregations, and they were not allowed to attend the National Conferences of SDA’s.

Oct 22 1978 Ben Roden then 76 died. Lois was considered then to be the new leader and “Prophet” as no rite of succession was ever written down just like after the death of Houteff in ’55. Lois continued to lead the group. In 1979 George who had believed that he was being groomed to be the leader of the group from birth demanded that a vote was held to prove his rightful place as the next Messiah of Waco, Which ended up in a court battle, that never was really resolved to either sides advantage.

While this was going on his mother Lois and a small group was on a world wide “Barnstorming” tour spreading the Feminine Holy message even hounding the Pope during a world tour in 1980 where her message was less than warmly received. During this time a small Australian contingent had joined the group including a young man Clive Doyle (another key in future events) and his elderly mother.

Next, Part 3: Poor George.
