I am confused. . .

Inconsistencies, Ramblings, Whatever . . .

I have noticed that the animal lovers in the family periodically say they don’t like to eat meat and lament about becoming a vegetarian.    However these same people when buying dog or cat food always make sure that “real meat” is in the bag.

When shopping in the grocery store there is no sign for toilet paper;  it is always labeled “Bath Tissue”.  Now who in their right mind when getting into the shower would grab a roll of “Bath Tissue”?   You can’t wash or dry with it, it would fall apart and be totally useless.

There are times when listening to music I always think to myself that the music from long ago had more meaning and better lyrics etc.   However it is about then that I hear songs with lyrics like “ram a lama ding dong” or “alley oop boop”, “I’m shaking like a man on a fuzzy tree” and then there is return to sender;  now when have you ever been able to mail a letter and have it returned the very next day – turn around on that would probably be about 5 or 6 days minimum.

Poem by James Kavanaugh

From the book “Laughing Down Lonely Canyons”

I’m Gonna Sit Here

I’m gonna sit here

     Till passion returns

      And tells me where to go.

I don’t care if it’s Heaven

     or hell or home,

I don’t care if it’s work

     or play or sex,

I don’t care if it’s rich

     or poor or madness

I don’t even care

     If it’s riding a white horse naked on a

          freeway

     Or lining up as we did as kids

          For a pissing contest in the old

          schoolyard.

I’m not going anywhere

     — even unto death —

Until I can go passionately.

America’s 6th President Explained Islam Perfectly in ONE Brutal Sentence

Barack Obama has often claimed that Islam was admired by America’s Founders, and made “great contributions” to the nation’s founding.

President John Quincy Adams would beg to differ.

He understood what so many people are afraid to admit today: that Islam is not a “religion of peace.” Those who commit evil in the name of Islam are just following what the Koran teaches.

From WND via The Federalist Papers:

In 1841, John Qunicy Adams defended 53 Africans accused of mutiny aboard the slave ship Amistad. He won their case before the Supreme Court, giving them back their freedom, stating:

“The moment you come to the Declaration of Independence, that every man has a right to life and liberty, an inalienable right, this case is decided. I ask nothing more in behalf of these unfortunate men than this Declaration.”

African slaves brought to America were purchased at Muslim slave markets, where over Islam’s centuries of history an estimated 180 million were enslaved.

Quincy Adams had the example of both his father’s and Thomas Jefferson’s battles against the Muslim pirates of Libya, and also Muslim slave traders, to draw on when he made a conclusion n that sounds like he could be describing much of the Muslim world today, 174 years later:

“The natural hatred of the Muslims towards the infidels is in just accordance with the precepts of the Koran.”

He contrasted this with Christianity:

“The fundamental doctrine of the Christian religion is the extirpation of hatred from the human heart. It forbids the exercise of it, even towards enemies.”

He continued, with a historical reference to the Muslim “prophet” that could well describe ISIS today:

“In the 7th century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab (Mohammed) … spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. … He declared undistinguishing and exterminating war as a part of his religion. … The essence of his doctrine was violence and lust, to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature.”

Remember these words the next time you hear Barack Obama absurdly claim that America’s Founding Fathers admired Islam or that the religion made wonderful “contributions to American culture.”

That is, unless you call “contributions,” the capture and selling of millions of African slaves, and the Barbary Wars.

Refreshing to see a U.S. president who wasn’t afraid to speak the truth about Islam, is it not?

Story Behind the Song

From an email list I am on.

STORY   BEHIND   THE SONG

Several songs that might have been hits have been discarded during the actual
recording sessions because the artist changed their mine about the tunes after
starting to record them.
Such was almost the case for Elvis Presley’s 1960 hit “Are You Lonesome
Tonight?”
Elvis reportedly recorded the song with the lights out in the studio – at his
request!
According to recording engineer Bill Porter – there was only an acoustic guitar,
a bass, the Jordanaires, and Elvis on that session and the Jordanaires made a
mistake on the end – by going to the wrong chord. After barely getting started
on the second take – Elvis stopped the session and told producer Steve Sholes to
throw the song out because he couldn’t do it justice.  Sholes thought the song
was a hit and talked Elvis into re-recording just the ending of the song – then
told Porter to splice the tape and add the re-recorded ending to the rest of the
song.
Porter spliced the tape and Presley’s RCA Victor single “Are You Lonesome
Tonight” came on the country charts December 12th, 1960 and peaked at number 22.
It was Presley’s 30th charted country song and was on the charts for six weeks.

Spoiled Brat Romney Goes Full Democrat In Smearing Donald Trump

Posted on June 11, 2016 by Rick Wells in 2016 Election, Donald Trump, Political Establishment // 2 Comments

The holier-than-thou spoiled brat off-shoring exploiter of the American people, Mitt Romney, has apparently finally given up on the idea of either him or his mini-me Paul Ryan becoming president without having to campaign. He’s fully engaged in trashing the Republican nominee who played by the rules, did all of the work and won by unprecedented numbers against an historically large field.

If the American people were too ignorant to see his greatness and that of his fellow globalist puppet Paul Ryan four years ago and still haven’t come to their senses, then he’s done. He’s picking up his marbles and he’s going to play with the Democrats in “sort of secret.” Romney’s now doing everything he can to angrily trash the man we selected instead of him or his anointed one, Canadian establishment shill Ted Cruz.

At what could be dubbed his “Mad at America Establishment Retreat,” Romney allowed himself to be interviewed by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and he had an angry mouthful to get off of his chest. Not being the synthetic saint that Lyin’ Ted Cruz was has its drawbacks and one of them is being the target of false claims by those who put themselves and their associates on false religious high horses. Romney, Cruz and Beck give religion a bad name as they denounce others from under their undeserved, self-positioned religious mantle. Mitt is miffed that the American people saw through his and Glenn Beck’s charade and voted for Trump instead their elite cabal candidate.

Romney won’t tolerate the rejection of him and the choices he provided, himself or the sleazy political preacher Glenn Beck proclaimed was predicted and selected by Mormon leader Joseph Smith in their founding prophecy. That non-Mormon wealth redistribution church of the Seven Mountains Dominionist, Ted Cruz might have lost, but he’s not going like a gentleman and neither is Romney. Fittingly and symbolically, the setting for Romney’s attack against those who failed to see the light of following him was the Utah mountains in Deer Park, east of Salt Lake City. Utah’s got lots of mountains; go ahead, Ted, pick the seven you like.

Romney’s angle of attack is to attack from the right flank, using the same weaponry that is coming in from the left and the same projection tactics. He’s labeling trump a racist for identifying the racist Judge Curiel, the anti-American LaRaza agitator for what he really is.

Romney told Wolf Blitzer that Trump had indicated, “What he believes in his heart about race and about Judge Curiel,” totally adopting the leftist false portrayal of the racist judge and the non-racist Mr. Trump. “I don’t want to see trickle-down racism. I don’t want to see a president of the United States saying things which change the character of the generations of Americans that are following. Presidents have an impact on the nature of our nation, and trickle-down racism, trickle-down bigotry, trickle-down misogyny; all these things are extraordinarily dangerous to the heart and character of America.”

Of course all of those are things that Romney knows Trump is not, so the real reason he’s doing what he’s doing is either to pull some shenanigans at the convention or to help the establishment candidate Hillary Clinton. He also indicated that he could support the third party candidacy if former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld were atop the ticket, as Weld is a friend of his who supported his campaigns in both 2008 and 2012. Donald Trump also supported and donated money to Romney, but his support seems to have a much shorter shelf life. Maybe that’s just more Romney BS to cover the fact that he’s an establishment tool and his job is to derail Trump.

He really had his heart set on TPP, he could have done so much pilfering of America if Trump and Sessions hadn’t ruined everything.

TV Shows I Watch

It seems logical to go through the week, soooooo.

Mondays lately I watch Scorpion and NCIS LA.    Even though I have always liked NCIS LA I am getting tired of it with the characters always bickering like a couple old ladies all the time.   As for scorpion I kind of like the quirky personalities they have given Happy and Toby.   Enough said.

Tuesdays I watch NCIS and NCIS New Orleans.   I am saddened at the departure of Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) – to me he was the show almost as much as Gibbs.  Tony can go from class clown to deadly serious in a heartbeat.    As far as New Orleans I think they are going so far into the character interaction thing and the ending scenes in the bar that it takes away from the actually crime aspect – I watch it but whether I continue to watch it is up in the air.

Wednesdays the only show I really look forward to is Criminal Minds.   It has stayed true to it’s purpose and although it has changed cast members a few times I still consider it my favorite show

On Thursday night I used to watch Elementary but they seem to have moved it to Sunday night which is a bad sign as I have noticed that shows they move to Sunday are soon cancelled.    I like this show a lot and the only drawback is that the main character sometimes talks to fast I have no idea what he is saying.

There are a couple cable shows I like a lot and try not to miss them.   The first one is The Artful Detective  or on another cable channel they call it Murdoch Mysteries.     Good old fashioned detective work and even though it is set in the 1890s it alludes to things happening in todays world. Excellent show. 

The next show is Death In Paradise.   Set on an island called San Marie.   Great blend of characters and I truly enjoy all of them.

Although there are a number of sitcoms I like and enjoy – I am not really concerned if I miss them.   The top ones that I find consistently funny are 1. Big Bang Theory, 2. Black (ish), 3. Fresh Off The Boat, 4. Last Man Standing, 5. The Middle.     We watch more of them but these are the top ones that I like.
