Outside My Front Door

I thought about flying my flag upside down when Obama got elected; but talked myself out of it.

When they started talking about Cap and Trade, I was ready, but we dodged that bullet, at least temporarily.

But last Sunday, when they passed Socialized medicine I went ahead and started flying my distress flag.

I also have made up my mind not to buy a new flag as long as the Democratistas are in power.

It took a lot of thought to get to this point. I have an absolute love and deep respect for my country's flag. I know what it means to those who have fought for it.

And I also know what is happening to the country it represents right now. The country I fought for is becoming too much like the country I fought against.

When we take my country back I'll get a new flag.

And a taller pole to fly it from.

This is the Young'uns puppy, Daisy. Named after Daisy Duke, from down Hazzard County way. The Young'un INSISTED.

Her middle name is General Lee.

We found her at the pound and believe she is somehow related to Junior.

Can you see the family resemblance. Or is it just me?


I did a post a few months back about my dog Junior, and now that I have my pictures back I can post one of him.

He was a grand old dog. But our new pup shows signs of being just as good.

But that is another post.

Some of my Projects I

I built this a few years ago as a Christmas Gift for a brother-in-law. In case you can't tell. it a fishing pole rack, that has a spot at the top for two special poles he has that belonged to his Dad and Granddad; the picture is the three of them fishing, and Dad and Grandad are using their poles.

Don't mind the photo editing; I had to hide a few pictures of the kids.

Its Been A Long Year

It has been over a year since I have had a fully functional computer. I have had one that worked for the last month or so, but I could not access my old files. They were on a hard drive I couldn't seem to gain access to. I kept getting the error message that the directory was corrupt. So I thought all that good old stuff was gone for good.

But yesterday the stars must have been in alignment, because miraculously it started working. I still can't access it through 'My Computer', but if I open up Word or Excel then I can open the drive. Weird, huh?

What does this mean to you, gentle Reader?

Now I can inflict some of my old writings and photos on y'all.

Now ain't THAT a wonderful thing?

I Can't Believe What You Find On The Internet Sometimes

I was looking for info on the Healthcare Take Over Bill, and remembered that Sean Hannity had a tracking poll going on that showed where everybody stood. So I did an internet search on 'Hannity' and ran across this "GEM" of a website. The comments are hilarious. Especially the 'voted down' process.

I have never been to this site before, but apparently if they don't like a comment, they vote it down, and it becomes hidden. So, any comment that displays the truth about global warming gets hidden, and the Gore acolytes posting here never have to see them.

The ultimate 'Head In The Snow' tactic.

So Here I Am, Minding My Own Business When...

I get a call from an outfit called Townhall with a Washington DC area code. I admit to being intrigued. I have been involved with a couple of these with my Congressman, Geoff Davis, so I naturally assumed it was him.

It wasn’t.

It was the Campbell County Judge Executive, who in Kentucky is, for lack of a better analogy, the Mayor of the County.

Think Boss Hogg.

Anyway, I stayed on the line. I am not a big fan of Steve Pendry. I would damn near reelect Obama before I would vote for Pendry again. I said DAMN NEAR. I am torqued off at Pendry; I’m not an idiot.

Where was I? Oh yeah. So here we have a call from the DC area, with some dude with a fruity English accent (you know the one; all the vowels are sounded out; each consonant has the proper tone and depth. Sounds just like every politician you have ever heard speak from the House of Commons) and the first thing he does is ask Pendry about the job of Judge Executive. Pendry spouts some drivel for about 5 minutes and Fruity English Dude (hereinafter FED) pulls the full Obama; ‘Wow Steven I am impressed with your depth of Knowledge about the job of Judge Executive and your concern for my fellow citizens of Campbell County’.

Say What?!?!?

There is no way on God’s green Earth this fool lives in Campbell County. Hell, if he has ever been here it would surprise me. I’d lay money FED couldn’t find Kentucky on a map, much less Campbell County.

But to be fair, I don’t think Pendry has been south of Fort Thomas since the last election. Maybe that’s why he didn’t catch on that FED wasn’t a good idea for a moderator.

And, believe it or not, it went downhill from there. They took a few softball questions from the crowd, and Pendry responded with the usual political hackery non-response. There was one real question that I heard, from a farmer in the southern end of the county who was complaining that farmers had to buy an occupational license to farm 10 acres, even if it wasn’t a full time job, but how many people were sitting in their basements, working from home without one?

Well of course Pendry says that the home workers are required to have a license. And FED again gushes his admiration for Pendry’s depth of knowledge. The real issue? They’ll go after a farmer; his work is visible from the roadside, and he lives ‘down there’, where they don’t have sidewalks, and the home workers are all friends of Pendry.

I listened about an hour- while doing other things- and finally hung up when FED says ‘To get involved in the campaign to Re-elect Steven Pendry, push 7 now’.

So hear I think I am participating in a town hall with an elected county official, and instead I have been listening to an hour long re-election bit?

I guess Pendry must be getting desperate. He probably has seen a poll that shows Kevin Sell will whup his butt in the primary.

One thing I heard that really made me think Pendry is not in touch with his constituency: He bragged about twice in the last few months being Washington and the money he brought back to the county. Does he realize most of us want the graft in Washington to STOP? No matter who gets it.

WOW; March 13th

I can't believe I have haven't posted in over 2 weeks. I has been a very busy 2 weeks, most of it consumed by a very rewarding special project that I can't really talk about.

But I can say that it was a culmination of almost 5 years of work. And it involves one of my passions, local history.

One day I may be able to write something here, but details need to be released first other places, so stay tuned.
