Indecent exposure

The other day, I got pulled over by the police because my car didn’thave any hub caps on the tires. I said, “What’s the charge officer?”He said, “It’s Indecent Exposure.”I exclaimed, “Indecent exposure?”He said, “Yes! You can’t just ride around with your nuts showing!”

Religion and insurance

As you know i am engaged. What most people don't know is that she is an RN who works in labor and delivery. She is not Catholic but is interested in becoming one of us. She is by no means doing it to please me, she simply can't find what she needs at her church. The truth is an elusive creature isn't it.

She has come to Mass with me on every Sunday she was off and really likes my Priest. She has gotten to know him, my church friends and my religion. Once she started attending Mass, she realized that everyone at her church who told her bad things about catholics, were simply wrong. She enjoys the Catholic Faith and i look forward to bringing her into the church.

When i go to meet her at work i notice these posters in the elevators and the break rooms. The posters tell us, the patient, that we are responsible for our health care. Well no shit? Who didn't know this?

It seems that a whole butt load of people will do what their doctors says and never even question why. To me this sounds absurd but it does happen. I want to know everything there is to know about my condition and any prescriptions i am given. I do a little research and i can ask intelligent questions with my doctor. Why doesn't everyone do this? Why do people put their absolute faith in a person who could be having a bad day?

In the end, i am most responsible for my safety. I need to know what goes into my body and question everyone who tells me different. Just because they have an MD behind their name, doesn't make them error proof.

It is the same with religion. Why do people absolutely believe what a preacher says and do nothing to verify if he is correct? Why don't people question the authority of a preacher and ask where his authority is derived from?

50 days after the Resurrection of Christ, he established His Church and left the Holy Spirit to guide it. This is commonly referred to as when the Universal or catholic church was formed according to Acts, chapter two.

This church went on from that day as the only christian church until 1054 when a dispute arose over whether Constantinople or Rome held jurisdiction over the church. This split formed the Western branch (Latin) also known as the Roman Catholic and the Eastern branch (Greek) also known as the Orthodox.

Along come Martin Luther, a Catholic Priest, who gets a bad case of heartburn and starts his own religion in 1522 known as the Lutheran Church. King Henry VIII wanted a divorce in 1534 and since the Catholic church wouldn't give it to him, he started the Anglican Church of England.

Every Christian religion is an offshoot of either the Eastern or Western Catholic church. Makes you question the doctrine of their teaching doesn't it.

Remember this

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion. It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble. It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial. It is the VETERAN, not the politician, Who has given us the right to vote.. It is the VETERAN who salutes the Flag, It is the VETERANwho serves under the Flag

Old Advertisements, Women need to know their role

You see, back in the day, women were responsible for satisfying their man. If a man left a woman it was because she did something wrong. I think we need to go back to the "Good old days"

Can you be Catholic and not be Pro-Life?

The other day at church someone was handing out these buttons that said "You can't be Pro-Choice and be Catholic".

They tried to give me one and i refused it. She kind of looked at me like i was satan himself. They couldn't understand why i will not wear that button.

The answer is simple, I will quote Doc Holiday "My hypocrisy only goes so far" Ill explain in a bit.

Yesterday a lady asked me to join the prison ministry. I refused. She asked me why and i replied "Those animals are exactly where they belong. They owe a debt to society and they need to pay it"

She reminded me that Jesus taught that we should minister to the imprisoned. I corrected her and said that Jesus taught that we should minister to the wrongly imprisioned. In today's world of scientific proof, they are not that many wrongfully incarcerated individuals.

She then asked me "What would Jesus do?" I replied, Exactly what i am doing. Jesus wasn't no punk and if you remember he threw the thieves and money changers out of the temple area. He called a sinner a sinner and showed them the path to righteousness. He did not coddle the sinner, he told them to repent.

She said that doing their time was repentance. I said no it wasn't. They were only doing time because they got caught. When they get out, then they can show their repentance.

This obviously sparked a tirade of conversation and i left by telling them that i am an educated Catholic and not a sheeple bleating out the party line.

Back to the button, those individuals that are imprisoned for rape and child crimes need to be kept locked up or put to death. One might argue that since i feel they should be put to death, that i am not Pro-Life. The problem is that according to the Church, if a person can be kept incarcerated, then there is no need to put them to death. Here is Texas, the longest sentence you can get is life or 99 years. After 50 years they are eligible for parole. Since we can't keep them incarcerated for life, i am for the death penalty.

This is why my hypocrisy only goes so far. If those animals can get out in 50 years, then we need to put them down. Not very Pro-Life is it?

Another funny

Eric is Gay. He goes into the doctor's office and has some tests run.
The doctor comes back and says, ' Eric, I'm not going to beat around the bush. You have AIDS.'
Eric is devastated. 'Doc, what can I do?
Eat 1 curry sausage, 1 head of cabbage, 20 unpeeled carrots drenched in hot sauce, 10 Jalapeno peppers, 40 walnuts and 40 peanuts, 1/2 box of All Bran, and top it off with a gallon of prune juice.
Eric asks bewildered, ' Will that cure me, Doc?'
Doc says, No, but it should leave you with a better understanding of what your ass is for.

Your choice

What would you choose?

What the hell is happening to my country

This falls under the "you ain't gonna believe this shit" category. Up in Minnesota there is a 13 year old boy refusing Chemo. The court was going to take the child away from his parents because they were neglecting his medical care by not making him take the chemo.

Why is the court involved in this? If the boy doesn't want it, then he shouldn't have to take it.

This conversation started in the office today when someone asked my opinion on it because i am catholic and so is this kid. It is my opinion that if the boy refuses the treatment and he dies, he can go to a much better place than what we have here. If the boy believes that he will go to heaven, what is so wrong with that.

The issue is a 13 year old boy making a life and death decision. I say let him make it. Do we really need the court system telling us what to do in a medical situation? I see no point in it.

The boy cited religious beliefs as the main reason he doesn't want to take the chemo. Isn't the court infringing on his 1st amendment rights?

I have had about enough

I have heard about enough that i care to hear about Gitmo. Pelosi swears that she had no idea they were water boarding terrorist. CIA says they told her everything. Who gives a shit? To me, it is equal to black on black crime. It doesn't effect me so i do not care.

The American people need to learn to shut the hell up. Do you remember the movie A Few Good Men, remember when Colonel Jessup told them that they had no idea how to defend a country? Well, he was right. We have Generals, Admirals, and Agency's that take care of it. Shut the f*ck up and let them do their jobs.

I could care less if they beat the terrorist twice a day and spanked their asses with a Koran soaked in unicorn tears. It isn't happening on American soil and it is saving American lives. I say take the gloves off and go to town. Dump the bodies in the ocean and on to the next one.

All they are doing is weakening our country. The terrorist watch TV so they know that the leadership of this country has about as much of a spine as a jellyfish.

State Farm ain't so bad

The other day i was going to Wal-Mart. As i was driving thru the parking lot a women backed out of her space and stuck the driver side corner of her rear bumper right smack dab in the middle of my front bumper. As i was in my company vehicle i called to police and they did an information only report. As with most companies, when you are involved in a vehicle accident in a company vehicle, the paperwork is horrendous. I had drug testing, pulled my driving record, checked my last Smith Driving class and all the other fun stuff that comes with a vehicle accident.

Of course i got the harassing phone calls from corporate threatening to pull my driving credentials and all other forms of abuse. You see, i am known to ride someones ass when they screw up. Now it was my turn to get ridden. I had it coming so i took it like a man.

A few days after the accident State Farm, her insurance, called me to get my side of the story. I told them what happened from my point of view and they agreed to fix my truck. They called the body shop i use and set it up. They gave me a claim number and told me to get it fixed.

This was exoneration for me. State Farm accepted liability for the accident which cleared my driving abilities. I got on the phone to corporate and did my best to rub their noses back in the shit they rubbed my nose in. I like vindication.

Anywho, the other lady called me and wanted to know what i told her insurance company. The call went something like this:
"you told State farm i was in the wrong?"
Why do you think i was in the wrong?"
"You hit me"
"I did not. You ran into me"
'I had the right of way"
"So, you ran into me"
"I'm sorry, you must have not heard me. I had the right of way"
"That doesn't matter, you ran into me"
"Once again lady, i had the right of way"
"This is bullshit"
"What do you want me to do about it? Why did you call me?"
" I want you to call State Farm and tell them that it was your fault and tell them that you will use your insurance to fix your vehicle."
"I don't think so lady"
"Why not?"
"I had the right of way"
"You bastard. My insurance is going to go up. I have to pay to fix your truck when you hit me and they are going to raise my rates. I don't know what you told them but they believed you over me you bastard. What am i going to do?"
"I would suggest that when you do not have the right of way, be more careful"
"Asshole.. "
Then the bitch hung up on me. The nerve of some people.

So i got my truck back today looking good as new. I do keep an eye on my rear view cause i think that lady may be looking for some payback.

I have had a hard-on for a new toy for some time. A buddy of mine called me and had exactly what i was looking for. I picked up this sweet AR-50 for an even sweeter price. I am in love with this little jewel and plan on taking it to the range this weekend. I will let you know how it goes.

This rifle is the newest incarnation of the wildly popular AR-50 chambered for the powerful 50 BMG cartridge. A single shot bolt action rifle featuring a unique octagonal receiver bedded down into a V-shaped stock. Designed to be an economical answer for the challenges of long range shooting, the AR-50A1 is amazingly accurate and with its massive fluted muzzle brake, it has a very gentle recoil. The AR-50A1 is a highly refined rifle which is a stark and refreshing difference that maintains its superiority over its competition.
ArmaLite's great .50 has been refined, with smoother action, attractive new bolt stop, and even greater strength than the original AR-50. The same great accuracy, but now even more Beautiful.

Another semester down

Another semester has come to a close. I took Marketing and College Composition. I ended up with a 94 in each class. It was hard to keep up with this semester.

For my final in marketing i had to perform a marketing analysis on Budweiser. I aced that final. It was a fun class. The College Comp was a lot harder. we had to create a power point presentation on our future career. I actually lost points for too much information, that blew my mind.

The relationship is going great. I have found that being engaged is a lot like negotiating with a care salesman. We are feeling each other out and seeing how far we can go. I like to test the limits just so i know where the boundry is.

For example, me being single and living alone for the past 15 months, when i get home the boots and pants come off. I like to lounge around in my skivvies. Apparently some women don't think this is a good idea. We were on the phone and i said hold on, the pizza is here. I got my pizza and resumed conversation. She asked what i was wearing and i told her. She thinks it is bad manners to answer the door in your skivvies.

She asked me why i do that and i said that my leather couch sticks to my butt when I'm naked, that's why i wear my skivvies. I could hear her roll her eyes on the phone. I liked it better when i had my cloth couch. Sigh...

The other day she decided she was going to do my laundry. I saw her staring at the front of my skivvies. I ask her what she is staring at expecting and answer like "It's so big " or something like that. She said that all my skivvies have an orange stain on the front. I told her that when she isn't around i like to lay on the couch, eat Cheetos, and watch porn. The look of disgust was appalling. Sigh...

I have a question

Why do people have kids?

What is the purpose of having children? Why do people have a desire to have them?

Logically i can find no purpose in having kids. I am 41 and have never had a child. I do not desire to have one nor am i interested in being with a women who has minor children. Some friends think I'm crazy but i think they are crazy for wanting them.

I can't figure out what desire they are fulfilling by having kids. At best i think they are being selfish and are self centered. I know that the world needs procreation to continue, but outside of that, what is their purpose.

Why did Adam and Eve have kids? They lived in Paradise and threw it away. Why did they have a desire to create offspring?

I really don't understand this.
