Thomas Sowell: 'Friends' of blacks

Thomas Sowell says it so much better than I ever could. Maybe because he is well-educated.

Or maybe just because he understands.

Fires in Nevada

This is where I used to live.

I know exactly where those houses were. We used to go swimming up in that creek.

Those were absolutely beautiful houses. Sad to think they are all gone.

I hope they get this under control soon.

Kitty Heaven

A cat dies and goes to Heaven. God meets him at the gate and says, "You've been a good cat all of these years. Anything you desire is yours, all you have to do is ask."


The cat says, "Well, I lived all my life with a poor family on a farm and had to sleep on hardwood floors."


God says, "Say no more." And instantly, a fluffy pillow appears.


A few days later, 6 mice are killed in a tragic accident and they go to Heaven. God meets them at the gate with the same offer that He made the cat.


The mice said, "All our lives we've had to run. We've been chased by cats, dogs, and even women with brooms. If we could only have a pair of roller skates, we wouldn't have to run anymore."


God says, "Say no more." And instantly, each mouse is fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny roller skates.


About a week later, God decides to check and see how the cat is doing. The cat is sound asleep on his new pillow. God gently wakes him and asks, "How are you doing? Are you happy here?"


The cat yawns and stretches and says, "Oh, I've never been happier in my life! And those Meals on Wheels you've been sending over are the best!"

Mail Call

A southern Baptist minister has just completed his Sunday morning service. A new member of the congregation walks up to him and says "That's the best sermon I've seen in years. A goddamned fine sermon."

The minister replies "Thank you for the compliment, but I would appreciate it if you didn't use that obscene, blasphemous language in the house of the Lord."

"Okay, but I have to say that fucking sermon was really goddamned good. I enjoyed it so much I put five thousand fucking dollars in the goddamned offering bowl."

"No shit?" said the preacher.

Farewell, Weezie

Isabel Sanford has died at age 86.

Blessed Be, Weezie.


I am having one of those days.

It is so hot and humid, you don't want to be outside at all.

I am trying to get ready for my trip. Now I am having financial issues AGAIN.

I just wish things would go my way just once.

Okay, so I am PMSing real bad. I want to get out of here for a while. I am a little stressed out about this trip. And Asshole is being just that - an asshole.

Once I am on the road, things will get better, I hope.

Anyway, just needed to blow off a little. Gotta get to work now. Still have a lot to do before Monday.

Red Rover, Red Rover

Did you know the rovers are still on Mars?

You never hear about them anymore, so I thought they had been removed or died or something.

Interesting to know they are still out there.

National Archives

This is actually pretty cool.

Amazing what people have gone through to try and serve our country.

I am proud of each and every one of them.

Wrongful Death?

This guy murdered another man and then sang about it.

But he should not have to face the sentence imposed by the state, because...he was drunk and on drugs.

Excuse me?

Gee, maybe I should go get drunk and do some drugs. Then when I go bezerk and kill someone, I can get off with a lighter sentence, too.

Railroads Need to 'Fess Up

In Deaths at Rail Crossings, Missing Evidence and Silence

Shouldn't we do something about a company that kills hundreds of people each year, but says it was the victim's fault?

Something is wrong here, people!

Here It Comes...

Why am I not surprised?
