Facepalms on social media…..

It has been a crazy week down here in Spruill County. It seems those on the Right of the dial have really turned up the irrelevant noise machine around here. Looking through the posts on the Social Media this week has convinced me that it is going to a very long election season. Here are some samplings of comments posted by some very concerned citizens…..

I did not say all liberals – just the Godless ones, which, I guess, would mean, most liberals. In all honesty, I do not see how someone can be a liberal and be a Christian. It’s just incompatible.

 

Liberals are like slinky’s, they put a smile on your face and make you laugh when you push them down the stairs…..

 

Sure, in Barack Hussein’s America, if you smoke weed and watch basketball all day, then “government” is going to pay for your Section 8 housing, food stamps, and even some welfare cash to spend, so if you are a job-less pot head, of course you’ll vote for Hussein again.

 

Kagan accepted $20 million grant from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal – a noted Sharia Law proponent – to implement an “Islamic Studies” program at Harvard Law School when she was the Dean. Elena Kagen has exhibited a bias that may affect future decisions, particularly on any matter concerning Sharia Law.

 

Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and you lose a Democrat voter.

 

Obama and his like-minded followers – just like the brown shirts who followed Hitler leading up to WWII – are destroying the country that I love.

 

If Pig-losi was being tried for treason as she should be, she wouldn’t be able to finish destroying this country, unfortunately we are too stupid and cowardly to stop her.

 

Why is the DREAM Act being promoted by Congress? They are prostituting themselves for illegal votes.

 

What’s next for our President – having a yard sale at the White House to prove he is a regular guy? Maybe washing the Presidential limo in the White House drive in a white t-shirt with a pack of Marlboros rolled in the sleeve? A baby-daddy appearance on Maury, making orange jello on the food channel….. what depths will he sink to in order to convince you and me he is a real average joe and not a racist Marxist….

 

I heard outside the MSM, that Obama is really Bari Shabazz

Sometimes, I really don’t know how to respond to some of this.

I am glad that folks are looking into the issues and are willing to bring something “constructive” to the conversation.

 

Hate vandalism in Spruill County….

I returned from my trip earlier in the week to find this little love note up the street from my house. I drove by it and it didn’t really register until I pulled in to my driveway.

“Wait a minute, ” I thought. I backed of of the driveway to take a second look. This was right across the street from my neighbor’s driveway. I asked her when this happened and she replied on Monday.

The city came out the next day to cover it up. They must have used the wrong kind of paint because it washed away in the rains and the picture shows the result. She reported this to the police, but, no one came out to talk to her. Just a report over the phone.

This is a fairly small bedroom community in the metro Atlanta area, so access to city officials is easy. I called the city manager yesterday and told him what had happened. He replied that my call was the first time he had heard about this. I was assured that he would have a crew out as soon as possible.

A phone call to the City Police was not very informative. I asked several questions if this was isolated, when it was reported and so on. There had been two reports made. “Have this been looked into further?” I asked. “I don’t think so, no indication,” I was told. “Probably just some kids vandalizing.”

I called the local paper and talked to the crime reporter if he knew of any other incidences. “I didn’t even know about this one!” he said. The reporter came out to our street and we had a conversation.

“I hate to say this, but, if this had happened in the more tony part of town, it would have been taken more seriously. There would have been police out here and the city manager would have been made aware of it,” he told me.

I know. It is a distressed neighborhood. Quite a few abandoned and foreclosed homes are on the street.

A few folks have said to me it was probably kids. Very high possibility, as the street is a good place to skateboard. (Skateboarding is not a crime.) Even if it was some kids, that doesn’t change the severity or seriousness of this. Some experts say that this can be a precursor to violence in the future.

Living in the metro Atlanta area, I have seen graffiti of all sorts through the years. Skin Heads scrawl all kinds of hateful messages and I just cringe.

But, if it was kids or not, I was just bothered by the cavalier attitude by the City Police.

 

 

 

 

 

I just learned that my “googie” is not properly groomed…..

I have to thank Joe, my social network friend, that is mostly offends to me with his sexist posts, who is still is in a 8O’s style “hair band” to point out that this stupidity.

I have just learned that a “brown” googie that does not have a haircut is not just not acceptable.

Joe disagrees. In some ways I guess he is a feminist, or just a guy.

Here is the article from Jezebel.

Good news, ladies! Society has discovered another new thing that’s wrong with you, which means another opportunity for you to make yourself more attractive for your man. Score! Turns out, the color of your vagina is gross and everyone hates it. So bleach that motherfucker. Bleach it right now!

***Sigh***

Channeling Joseph McCarthy

U.S. Congressman Allen West of South Florida at a rally yesterday at Florida Atlantic University made the claim that 80 members of Congress are members of the Communist Party. West offered no names or evidence, but, later said he was referring to the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Congressman West is some what known for his outrageous claims including stating that, “If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat party, because they have an incredible propaganda machine.” He also claimed he was the modern Harriet Tubman. “So I’m here as the modern-day Harriet Tubman, to kind of lead people on the Underground Railroad, away from that plantation into a sense of sensibility.”

There is strong support among Tea Party members for West to be the GOP nominee for vice president. His outspoken ways are clearly admired by the Tea Party. However, a GOP insider said that is very unlikely because he would be very hard to control in a campaign setting.

West, considered a war hero by some, was relieved from military duty in 2004 after an attempted murder investigation involving an Iraqi officer that ended his 22 year career.

Update and correction: West’s office said in a statement to CBSMiami.com:

The Congressman was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.  The Communist Party has publicly referred to the Progressive Caucus as its allies.   The Progressive Caucus speaks for itself.  These individuals certainly aren’t proponents of free markets or individual economic freedom.

I previously written Congressman himself said he was referring to the Congressional Caucus.

Regarding the Chicken Man of Roswell, GA…

by Boohunney
On March 26th, Andrew Wordes, the infamous “Chicken Man” of Roswell, GA took his own life in an explosion that also destroyed his home during an attempt by marshals to evict him from his property that was in foreclosure. Wordes property was located in an area that was in proximity to McMansion neighborhoods and considered an eyesore by some. Others considered him the lovable Chicken Man.

Wordes had been involved in an on going dispute with the City of Roswell beginning back in 2009 on several issues including raising more “livestock” (chickens and turkeys) on his one acre property than permitted by the city. Also, there were other issues as Wordes not obtaining a permit to grade his property against floods and to repair damage from the epic floods in Georgia in 2009. The result was a conviction for Wordes and he was sentenced to community service.  He was unable to meet the terms of his probation due to illness and was sent to the city jail for three months. During this time his house went into foreclosure.

If these troubles were not enough, in July of 2011, someone opened up a pen and released all his baby chicks. Approximately 53 of his 160 turkeys and chickens were allegedly poisoned. Mayor Jere Wood of Roswell had sympathy as he stated that he owned some of the turkeys that died. In fact, many residents of the area have poultry in their yards, including the Mayor Wood.

The Chicken Man was a relic of past times in an area now of suburban sprawl. Considered eccentric, he was well liked by many and tried to live life on his own terms. He sold his fresh eggs and traded poultry with many of the new “Suburban Farmers” that are becoming in vogue along with the old time property owners that have livestock that are surrounded by the new developments moving further and further out into rural areas. Some argue it was about eminent domain issues, some are saying it was foreclosure issues.

It was a sad ending to a true character. Some people just can’t handle colorful or coexist with the unusual. In his honor, my neighbors next door will receive a bag of feed for their beautiful chickens. More here.

 

Thank heavens for baseball……

by Boohunney
Spring has come early down here in Spruill County.
But, “base games” are in full swing for the young. The recreation park behind the house in the other valley is rockin’. The public address system at the park doubles as our tornado siren. I just think that is cool.
Chipper Jones is going to retire after this season. That’s time moving on. Some of us down here have cards of Chipper from when he played on the farm team in Macon.

No matter, baseball is cool. I love going to “Six Flags Over Baseball,” AKA Turner Field in Atlanta. One can actually get in for a dollar. It’s for the people.

I think “Annie Savoy” sums it up well…..

I believe in the Church of Baseball. I’ve tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I’ve worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I heard that, I gave Jesus a chance. But it just didn’t work out between us. The Lord laid too much guilt on me. I prefer metaphysics to theology. You see, there’s no guilt in baseball, and it’s never boring… which makes it like sex. There’s never been a ballplayer slept with me who didn’t have the best year of his career. Making love is like hitting a baseball: you just gotta relax and concentrate. Besides, I’d never sleep with a player hitting under .250… not unless he had a lot of RBIs and was a great glove man up the middle. You see, there’s a certain amount of life wisdom I give these boys. I can expand their minds. Sometimes when I’ve got a ballplayer alone, I’ll just read Emily Dickinson or Walt Whitman to him, and the guys are so sweet, they always stay and listen. ‘Course, a guy’ll listen to anything if he thinks it’s foreplay. I make them feel confident, and they make me feel safe, and pretty. ‘Course, what I give them lasts a lifetime; what they give me lasts 142 games. Sometimes it seems like a bad trade. But bad trades are part of baseball – now who can forget Frank Robinson for Milt Pappas, for God’s sake? It’s a long season and you gotta trust it. I’ve tried ’em all, I really have, and the only church that truly feeds the soul, day in, day out, is the Church of Baseball.

Play ball!
