Friday, November 22, 1963 -er- 2013…..

It’s almost 50 years now since our Government went down the tubes (My Opinion)……  Where were you (if you were alive then)?……  It’s ironic that the 50 year mark of Kennedy’s Assassination hits on the exact same day of the week…..  My irony in the whole matter was that I was a junior in High […]

I Can’t Believe It……

On the news the other day, I actually heard a newscaster use the term “Climate Change” as opposed to the old standby “Global Warming” in a broadcast concerning the typhoon in the Philippines……  Maybe there’s hope for the weather forecasters yet….  Sorry about that, HS…..

Congress?……

After I made the “Wind of Change” Post on 28AUG13 (scroll down a few Posts and you’ll find it), a friend suggested putting it to music in the form of “Imagine” by John Lennon…..  I started it and kind of got sidetracked, but, with what the worthless Yo-Yo’s are doing now – as in shutting […]

911…..

Sorry, I missed making a Post on “911” on the 11th due to the fact that I was in the middle of having some dental work done on the 10th and 12th…..  I don’t enjoy visits to the Dentist, and this one turned out to be a Lu-Lu with many problems (still going on as […]

Wind Of Change….

As I told our newest member, Maj7b5, we usually stay away from politics on this Blog…. Boy, am I having to eat those words, but, this came to me in the form of an e-mail to be forwarded on and on…. I hate to do e-mail chains, but, believe this as something important enough to […]

Australian President – #1 Asshole…..

I try to stay away from Politics as much as possible, but, this one just got to me in the wrong way….. Yes, it was a very sad event….. The taking of a life for no other reason than being bored, but for the President of Australia to blame the incident on our “Lack of […]

New Blood……

Yep, I just approved a new member for the MRambler Community….. He was a fellow band member in Terraplane in the mid ’70’s….. Hopefully he will bring in some new, off-the-wall, screwy ideas that our little group of mainstream misfits are famous for, and will forgive me for spelling his last name wrong for the […]

Much ado about nothing……..

Ever wonder what that means? Yeah me too. Sorry…… It’s 0700am CDT Been up since 0500am CDT Can’t sleep the Cat is running laps over the bed, 2 days left on my vacation, and I’ve got a bunch of things rattling around in my extremely large yet under populated mind, so the coffee is on […]

Book/DVD Report. The West Memphis 3

This is a subject that I have been interested in since the beginning 5 May 1993. I was actually in West Memphis, AR. and Memphis, TN exactly 7 days before the Murders and saw first hand what the atmosphere was like at that time. And Passing through many times in the ensuing years I have […]

“Large Hail – Damaging Winds….”

… I am sick of hearing this phrase, to say the least….. It all started on March 30, with the picture above…. Since then, every week, during the middle part of the week, we have had the same thing – “Large Hail – Damaging Winds….”…. Argh!!!.. Last night was the worst, but almost the same […]

A Little Humor…..

…….In a bad situation……  I’ve been watching the events unfold in Boston all day…..  Not long after they lifted the “Lock Down”, there were shots fired and lots of police and vehicles on the move immediately in a great rush……  Brian Williams of NBC was commenting that there were between 9 and 10 thousand officers […]

New Weapon Laws

Lets take on the proposed New Gun Laws, particularly the “Assault Weapons Ban” and “High Capacity Magazines“. Now I am all for keeping weapons out of the hands of criminals but, that would not have stopped any of the recent shootings our country has experienced. These incidents were perpetrated by Mentally Deranged individuals who thought […]

U.S. Weather Forecasts Suck!…..

I saw an interesting editorial on the news the other day….  It was about how the U.S. was way behind the rest of the World in Weather Forecasting…..  It said that during the ’80’s and ’90’s, the U.S. failed to upgrade/update the necessary hardware/software needed to predict accurate long range predictions, in other words, we […]

If It’s Not One Thing…..

It’s Another…..  We finally got all the big fires out in Oklahoma….  We sent them to the West, including Washington state….  Sorry ‘Bout that!…..  I would say you Northwesters’ should move to Oklahoma where all the ground is already burnt, but, we have a much deadlier enemy now – West Nile Virus.….  The worst outbreak […]
