What is going on?

Larry Craig was arrested for what? He didn't commit a crime. Now you know i am not a fan of the queers, but this guy didn't do anything. At most he was flirting with a queer in the bathroom. Why did he get arrested? The government is just running over us. Remember in New Orleans 2 years ago they were confiscating guns from law abiding citizens. Now they are arresting people for flirting. When is it going to stop?

If they can arrest you for playing footsies in a bathroom, what else can they arrest you for? This is going to far. You ever hear this joke? Whats the fastest way to clear a crowded men's room? Walk up to some guy and say Nice Dick. Now i have done this twice in my life. Once at the john in Reliant Stadium in Houston and once and the Wyndham in North Houston. It doesn't work. People look at you like your crazy. So what if the queer police was there. Would i get arrested? Don't you actually have to break a law to get arrested?

I am just saying maybe he was there to meet somebody or maybe he wasn't. Maybe he was just flirting and playing a fantasy. He really didn't commit a crime and shouldn't be charged. Until they change the law, you can't be arrested for being queer. They need to change but until then, we are a society based on laws.

Back Home

After a fun filled whirl wind trip to Borger TX i am back home. It's fun to leave but better to come home. My buddy Trent and I were going to rebuild the top end of my 4-wheeler but we couldn't find the right fly wheel puller for this bike. Looks like he will have to build it. I planned on doing the top end myself but Trent has done a couple of them and i trust him.

One the way back i met with Nick and his Mom in Plainview. If you don't remember, on February 16, 2007 Nick was severely burnt in the Valero Refinery Explosion in Sunray TX. Nick worked for me and i become real close with his family through this ordeal. I usually meet with him and his wife Carmen when i go to Borger. This time we met at a chili's. Hey, a brother gots to eat. We did what we usually do. Tell lies about how it was "back in the day". Good day.

On the drive home the insurance adjuster from PROGRESSIVE, the wreck i was involved in a couple weeks back, called me to tell me that PROGRESSIVE (shit hole company) was not going to pay the claim. I asked why and Lindia (432-413-6228) , feel free to call her, told me that she couldn't tell me. I said " you have to be shitting me!" " This lady pulls out in front of me causing an accident, receives 3 tickets and goes to jail for outstanding warrants, and you deny the claim?" she says " I don't deny liability, i deny coverage"

I have to say i did my best and told her that our lawyer will be in touch. It appears they are denying coverage because the owner of the vehicle wasn't driving. She didn't know if the owner of the vehicle gave permission. HELLO, the owner was a passenger in the vehicle, DUMB ASS.

I make this solemn vow, i will remind anyone who reads this blog that PROGRESSIVE is a shit hole company and you shouldn't do business with them.

Decision or not

Yesterday while driving home from work i was listening to the local Catholic Radio station. At 1700 they have a question and answer for 2 hours. The first hour's topic was homosexuality. As we all know, this is a very touchy topic.

Now i am a firm believer that you can find a study to back up anything you want. For example, we know that sunshine turns grapes into raisins. The anti-sunshine group can provide a study saying that sunshine is the cause for the deterioration of the grape thus making it inedible. It all depends on the spin they put on it and what you are willing to believe.

The program had a Doctor on their program. I don't recall his name. His study has shown that boys or men who adopt the homosexual lifestyle did not have a healthy relationship with their Father and thus sought out that relationship in the form of homosexuality. For girls and women who adopted the homosexual lifestyle, they did not have a healthy relationship with their Mother and thusly sought it in the Lesbian relationship. Kind of makes sense to me. I try to think of any homosexuals i know to see if that may be true. i only know one homosexual and i have no idea of what her relationship was like with her Mother.

Now i know the Homos will say they are born with it. The Doctor assured his listeners that with proper counseling, they can reverse the homosexuality of a person. I personally have believed that homosexuality is a choice.

Anyhow i am sure that there are studies showing the total opposite of what i said. That's fine with me. I will not have to answer to God on Judgement day for anyone but myself and homosexuality will not be discussed. As a Catholic, our Doctrine states that if someone is a homosexual, they should live a Celibate life and not practice homosexuality. If the homosexual follows our Doctrine, they can be a Practical Catholic. They must make a choice.

So you see, in the end it comes down to a choice. If you choose the practice homosexuality, you are willfully disobeying God's law and are risking your entry in Heaven. They must decide if they want to be happy here on Earth or happy in Eternity. Such a simple statement is so hard to live by.

Now i would love to hear your opinion on this.

Forgive your enemies

Sunday's sermon was---Forgive Your Enemies
Toward the end of the service, the Minister asked, "How many of you
have forgiven your enemies?" 80% held up their hands. The Minister then
repeated his question. All responded this time, except one small
elderly Lady.

"Mrs. Jones? Are you not willing to forgive your enemies?"

"I don't have any." She replied, smiling sweetly.

"Mrs. Jones, that is very unusual. How old are you?"

"Ninety-eight." she replied.

"Oh Mrs. Jones, would you please come down in front & tell us all how
a person can live ninety-eight years & not have an enemy in the world?"

The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle, faced the
congregation, and said: "I outlived the bitches."

Don't know if he realy said it, but it needed saying.

Paul Harvey says:

I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to sue somebody for singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December. I don't agree with Darwin , but I didn't go out and hire a lawyer when my high school teacher taught his Theory of Evolution

Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game.

So what's the big deal? It's not like somebody is up there reading the entire book of Acts. They're just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safety to the players on the field and the fans going home from the game.

But it's a Christian prayer, some will argue.

Yes, and this is the United States of America , a country founded on Christian principles. According to our very own phone book, Christian churches outnumber all others better than 200-to-1. So what would you expect -- somebody chanting Hare Krishna?

If I went to a football game in Jerusalem , I would expect to hear a Jewish prayer.

If I went to a soccer game in Baghdad , I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer.

If I went to a ping pong match in China , I would expect to hear someone pray to Buddha.

And I wouldn't be offended.
It wouldn't bother me one bit.
When in Rome ..
But what about the atheists? Is another argument.
What about them?
Nobody is asking them to be baptized. We're not going to pass the collection plate. Just humor us for 30 seconds. If that's asking too much, bring a Walkman or a pair of ear! plugs. Go to the bathroom. Visit the concession stand. Call your lawyer!

Unfortunately, one or two will make that call. One or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do. I don't think a short prayer at a football game is going to shake the world's foundations.

Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek while our courts strip us of all our rights. Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eating; to pray before we go to sleep.

Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing. Now a
handful of people and their lawyers are telling us
to cease praying.
God, help us.
And if that last sentence offends you, well . . just sue me.

The silent majority has been silent too long. It's time we let that one or two who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority don't care what they want. It is time the majority rules! It's time we tell them, you don't have to pray; you don't have to say the pledge of allegiance; you don't have to believe in God or attend services that honor Him. That is your right, and we will honor your right ... But by golly, you are no longer going to take our rights away. We are fighting back ...
and we WILL WIN!

God bless us one and all ... especially those who denounce Him, God bless America, despite all her faults. She is still the greatest nation of all.

God bless our service men and women who are fighting to protect our right to pray and worship God.

2007 will be the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as the foundation of our families and institutions... and our Military will come home from all the wars.
Keep looking up.

Marriage License

Book em Horns

It's been almost one (1) week without an arrest of a Longhorn football player! Good Job Mack * way to keep those boys in line!!!

(Note: for those of you that don't know, Austin's Pride has produced, within the last month: four (4) boys- w/ mugshots and prints. Two for armed robbery (w/ firearms), one for auto burglary & DUI and another for DUI)

1. What do you call a drug ring in Austin? A huddle.

2. Four UT Longhorns in a car, who's driving? The police.

3. The UT Longhorns have adopted a new "Honor System". Yes Your Honor, No Your Honor.

4. The UT Longhorns knew they had to do something for their defense, so they hired a new defensive coordinator: F. Lee Bailey.

5. How do the UT Longhorns spend their first week at fall practice?
Studying their Miranda Rights.

6. What do you say to a Longhorn in a suit? Will the defendant please rise?

7. If you see Longhorn football player on a bike, why don't you swerve to hit him? It might be your bike!

8. The Longhorns employ scouts. But to look out for cops, not to scout high school kids.

9. I heard a rumor that the Texas Department of Corrections plans to build a new prison in Austin, Texas in order to allow Longhorns to walk to school.

10. What do you call it, when a Longhorn goes on vacation? Time off for good behavior.

11. Why couldn't the Longhorn get into a huddle on the football field?
It's a parole violation to associate with known felons.

12. Obviously Coach Mack Brown is not paying his players if they have to resort to robbing people.

My bathroom remodel is complete. The cost of the shower was around $5K plus all the other stuff. It was worth it. We made a lot of changes as the contractor was working. We removed all sheet rock that could come into contact with water and replaced it with cement board. We eliminated any possibility of mold. We had the tile run out from the shower and along the wall for three foot above the floor. The shower head is thermal and pressure balanced. No spikes in pressure or temperature. That's nice.

All in all he did a great tile job. The floor is set up with a double drain should any water get past the tile and we installed a vapor barrier behind the cement board in the shower. We built this thing bullet proof and to last.

I had to buy a new crapper. I broke the old one when trying to re-install it. Can you believe that Lowe's has a crapper for $566. Why would you pay that kind of money for a shitter? I got me the extra tall super shitter power dumper 5000. It flushes so hard it draws a vacuum in the bathroom. Nice.

This Is My Life, Rated
Take the Rate My Life Quiz

As you can see i scored well in the Spiritual. Duh, look at my blog's name.

i am back

After a week in Houston it is good to be Home. We were there for our annual Managers Meetings. All in all it was a fun week. Went fishing on Lake Conroe. Didn't catch anything but a buzz. That is what i call a good day of fishing. While sitting in the meetings i began looking at all the other managers sitting there. about 80% of the managers in my division started out together 15 or so years back. We started as Technicians and worked our way through Operations Supervisor and Salesman into Manager. This got me to thinking.

At our location we have been trying to hire people. We always say that the young people today don't want to work and do not have the ethics we have. I believe this is true but i do not believe it is a generation thing. I think it is just youth.

18 years ago when i started i was a beer drinking bar brawling women chasing wild thing that showed up everyday, usually hungover. As i grew older i also grew wiser and my priorities changed. I traded the bars on Saturday night for Church on Sunday Morning. I traded womanizing for marriage. I simply grew up.

Back 20 years ago if you were a hoodlum, you simply hid it. The only people who knew you were a hoodlum was felow hoodlums. In todays open society where you don't hide anything, the young people just do it.

Our young people today aren't doing nothing we didn't do back in our day. They simply don't hide it as well. I think our young people are more coddled today than we were but that is just because their parents want them to succeed. Nothing wrong with that.

It makes me feel better and changes my outlook on what i am looking for when hiring someone. I know someone took a chance on me so i should also be willing to give these young people a chance. With proper leadership you can take your entire organization on to greatness.

Remember this, attitude is a reflection of leadership.

The Husband Store

A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New
York City ,where a woman may go to choose a husband.

Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of
how the store operates: You may visit this store ONLY
ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products
may increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The
shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or
may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go
back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a
husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.
She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where
the sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids. "That's nice", she thinks, "but I want more ."So she
continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are
Extremely Good Looking. "Wow," she thinks, but feels
compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor
and the sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead
Good Looking and Help With Housework. "Oh, mercy
me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it! "Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead
Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong
Romantic Streak. She is so tempted to stay, but she goes
to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor.

There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.

Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.


To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened
a New Wives store just across the street.

The first floor has wives that love sex.

The second floor has wives that love sex and have money.

The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been

Too Fat

The other day i was watching some show and they were saying that the Airlines have the right to charge you for two seats if your a heavy. Really, Why don't they charge for the women who is holding her crying ass little kid? Fair is fair.

Now i am a big boy. I am 6'5" and weigh 345. I fill up an airplane seat but i am not spilling out of it. Anyone who sits next to me is probably miserable. I sweat easy enough and stick my big butt on a plane and i am sweating to beat the band. Usually no one wants to sit next to me. I usually wear a tank top to reveal some of my art work i got while in the navy. I put on a nasty look and make eye contact with everyone who comes near me. This has worked well. Everyone has walked on by. I do it on purpose so i can have more room.

If they ever tell me i have to buy a second seat, i will have to go totally redneck on them.

I dislike flying enough as it is. Now they are just being ass holes about it. I think i am going to drive to Houston next week. later.

Bathroom Remodel

You ain't gonna believe this shit. We have gone $800 over budget for my Bathroom remodel. It seems that when you tear into the walls and floor, that a lot of previous homeowners just did the minimum to make shit work. We had to bust out the slab and move plumbing. Then because ours is going to be a custom size, nothing cheap will work in it. We have to have the shower door custom made. I feel like i am about to whip somebodys ass.

Accent Wall

My wife decided she wanted an accent wall in our living room. She didn't want it painted or papered, but wanted it bricked. So i said i needed the right tools for this type of job. She told me to go get them. So i go off on a tool shopping trip and attempt to make her the accent wall. I think it came out pretty good.
