The people of Wal-Mart

Went to pick up charcoal today.  On the way into a store, I saw a black woman, about 100 pounds overweight, wearing a skin-tight pair of black shorts that showed the crack of her ass, and a neon green polka-dot halter top.

I need eye bleach.  Dear god, why in the world would anyone EVER go out wearing that?  It doesn't even look good on a skinny girl!  This woman should have stopped wearing ANYTHING with spandex fifty pounds ago!

The Wally-World $5 bin

You go back to electronics in Wal-Mart, and they've got bins of DVDs and CDs for $5.  A lot of the stuff in there is absolute crap, but I've gotten some damn good deals.  This time, I found a Stevie Ray Vaughan CD, some live, some studio, all good.

The first time I heard SRV I was blown away.  Found out that he had died two years earlier.  Hell of a bummer.  It would be like seeing the Sistine Chapel, and hearing that Michangelo had just died last week. 



I saw this live video of "Texas Flood" when I worked at the EMP in Seattle.



Damn, that man could play.

A mistrial

In the John Edwards trial.

Yeah, well......

I still don't know if what he did was strictly illegal.  But he's still a slimy, shit-faced, greedy, backstabbing piece of lizard shit who cheated on his wife while she was dealing with cancer.  He has all the morals of a leech, and the integrity of a crack-whore.  And he was probably the better half of the Kerry-Edwards ticket in 2004.

He makes me want to go scrub my skin with bleach, scouring powder and a Brillo pad just from watching him on TV.  And he's the perfect example of a Democrat.  So there you go.

Since Rivrdog brought up "Cripple Creek"



Yeah, I like bluegrass too!

Had a post

Thoughts didn't go where I wanted them to.  Hell, I don't know if I could even fake it today.

So I said "Fuck it" and hit delete.

Now, music!



My wife can't stand Linus and Lucy, or any kind of jazz piano for that matter.  Me, I can't get enough of it.

Memorial Day

I don't tend to wax poetic about Memorial Day and what it means, because I normally end up with tears in my eyes.

Yeah, I admit it.

I'm one of the lucky ones, and being here, surrounded by Sergeants who have lost friends, brothers and family drives that point home.  Good God, I've been blessed, more than I think I have a right to be.  Hell, I'm willing to get that anyone reading this post has been blessed far beyond their ability to pay it back, and I think we know it.  So be thankful, and work to pay those blessings back.

A priest once told me that when God gives you a gift, he expects you to use it.  Well, we've been given the gift of freedom, and it's under attack from the Left - What are you going to do to defend it for the next generation?

Ragin' Dave's Quote of the Day

Stolen, of course.

"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived."

Gen George Patton

Running in a Sauna

Right now it's 85 degrees.  Feels like 90 degrees.  And the humidity plus sunlight makes it feel like you're running in a sauna.  It took me 50 minutes to run a route that I normally run in 35.  I'm covered in sweat, and my daily exercise routine just kicked my ass.

Can't wait to leave.
