A Bump in the Road

Several years ago, before I retired, I was coming home from work.  It was about two in the morning and I was on I-55 headed south.  Just before I reached the I-240 junction, cars started slowing.  Traffic was sparse but I took the hint and started slowing too.

I didn’t slow enough, though I did see the reason why the slowdown.  Apparently, someone ran into a lamp post and it fell across the interstate… all three lanes.  I hit the break and right away realized not soon enough.  Knowing that I didn’t want to hit the post with my breaks on, I let off and coasted over the thing.

I just knew I was going to be looking at major repairs but I was wrong.  The Chevy HHR took it in stride and it didn’t even need re-alignment.  I am still driving the car and I’ve likely put 30 thousand miles on it since.  I can’t say I have been really happy with the car but I do have to admit it has a real good suspension system.

It would appear that the dummycrats have hit a bump in the road too.  They saw the bump in the road from a long way off and still hit it dead on.  The obstruction of justice is still slightly unsettled but that whole colluding thing is done and settled.  That boat is not going to float.  Four full scale investigations have found nothing.  Even though the deck was stacked against President Trump in this last investigation, they still found nothing.  Certainly, if there was anything they’d not hide it.  If the dummycrats keep trying to run over that bump, the only thing they will do is lose their wheels.

By the way, there are many in the media that owe president an apology.  Somehow, I don’t think that will happen.  They will have to admit that they were wrong and that does not fit in their agenda.  It would get in their way of one world government.

BUILD THE WALL!!!!

Drive Throughs

Perhaps one of man’s worst inventions is the drive-through.  I sit there in line and wait for someone to take my order at the counter and watch five orders go out through the drive-through window.  It just isn’t right.  They always put their highest priority on the drive-through window.  …and by the way, that is also where they put their best employees.

I know why they do it.  It is where they make their big money.  We have a Chick Filet nearby and the drive through generally has at least twenty cars waiting there to get their food.  Okay.  The cars aren’t waiting for the food.  It is the people in them that are hungry.  At least their counter staff is fast and efficient.  Even when the place is packed, I rarely have to wait but a few minutes to order my food.  The problem with them is finding a table.  (The place usually is packed.)

I learned a trick with them.  I park in a large parking lot next to the place.  If I don’t I just about can’t get out because of those trying to get in.  Besides, it does little good trying to find a place to park in their parking lot.  Large though it might be, it is usually full.

One thing I don’t understand is why the dummycrats don’t try to outlaw drive-throughs.  I think of all the other things they try to outlaw and it really makes me wonder.  After all, they were the ones that made McDonald’s get rid of the extra large drinks.  (Now that was dumb.  Now I have to go back and fill my Diet Coke up three times instead of twice.)

At any rate, drive-throughs are very bad for the environment.  Cars sit there and idle, maybe for half an hour.  That is a lot of carbon dioxide they spew out while their owners wait for their food.  Besides, it wastes fuel.  I just wonder how many barrels of oil are used just to allow drivers to sit in their air-conditioned cars while waiting for their food.

For that matter, why do the owners insist on waiting in their cars?  I have half a suspicion that most of them are dummycrats.  After all, none of them are complaining yet.  Moreover, they are likely the ones that are too lazy to walk a few yards from their cars into the restaurant.  (By the way, they don’t usually have to give up their air-conditioning but for a few seconds.  Most restaurants are air-conditioned.)  For some reason, they like to sit in their big SUV’s or pickups and glare at the rest of us for daring to use their precious resources.  …and of course, complain about the big drinks we buy.

Naturally, I just might be wrong, but if the drive-throughs were outlawed, I suspect that it would be the dummmycrats that would yell the loudest.  There would be an exception though.  Those that live in big cities mostly don’t use drive-throughs.  Mostly, they don’t drive.  Mostly, they just like to raise the taxes on the rest of us who do and use it on their buses and trains.

I don’t know New York City too well.  The only time I was there I spent a couple of hours looking out the windows of an airport waiting for a connecting flight.  However, I would guess, in the city proper, there aren’t many drive-throughs.  I suppose there are a few walkups.  It might seem odd to some, but I have seen a few walkups around here, though it was a drugstore.

I think about the craziest I saw was a drive-through pizza place.  To me, that simply does not make sense.  After all, it does take roughly twenty minutes to make a decent pizza.  None the less, it was late and they closed their dining room and counter so all pizzas had to be ordered at the drive-through window.  Needless to say, I took one look at that and found somewhere else.  I wasn’t about to wait until my turn to order my pizza and then wait for the pizza, all the time with my engine idling.  Considering it was near freezing outside, I wasn’t about to wait without the warmth of my heater either.

Dummycrat Lies

Just got through watching The Five on Fox News.  A stupid dummycrat made a dumb statement that I figured needed some kind response.  (I know.  I am being redundant.) She said something to the effect that it was a historic election when 40 seats in the house went to the dummycrats.  (Actually, she used the real party label, but I can’t bring myself to use that label nowadays.)

On its face, it is a lie and it was stupid of her to think I would believe it… either it was a lie or she is even dumber than I thought to believe such a ridiculous statement.  Nothing about it was historic and it was certainly expected.  It was somewhat normal.  Nothing historic about it.  What was historic was that the Republicans picked up seats in the senate.  What would have been historic is if the republicans had held on to the house.

By the way, the Republicans would have held onto the house if the dummycrats would have been somehow prevented from lying.

 

BUILD THE WALL!!!

Drones vs Walls

It’s why I call them dummycrats.  They keep saying dumb things.  They say we don’t need walls.  We can use drones and they are much less expensive.

Well, here’s a news alert.  Walls greatly impede illegals from crossing the border; drones don’t.  For my stupid political opponents, the best a drone can do is spot someone as they cross over the border.  I assure you, they will not and cannot stop anyone.  Then, once they are here, they are here and we can’t send them back.  Now tell me, just what is so brilliant about drones.

The truth is, they know better.  It is just their effort to deceive, and a poor one at that.  The truth is that they don’t want the wall because it will work and it will keep all their new voters out.

BUILD THE WALL!!!

Telling Stories

I’m a storyteller.  Most people can tell my stories are fiction, but just to make sure I precede all my stories with a disclaimer.  You know what I mean.  (The story you are about to read is fiction.  Any resemblance to real events are completely by accident, etc, etc and so forth.)

The primary reason for the disclaimer is legal.  As farfetched as my stories are, someone just might get the idea that I have written about something real.  Oddly, I guess there are a few people who might.

After watching most of Agent Peter Strzok’s stories, I came to the conclusion that he should have issued a disclaimer.  I am sure most of us can figure out that it is fiction, but maybe not everyone.

Cleared? Really?

I sat and watched Hillary Clinton (on TV) say that she was cleared of any guilt.  Really?  I don’t believe it. Comey fired salvo after salvo at her; things she definitely did or had done.  As I listened to the report, I was convinced she was going to spend the rest of her life in prison.

It appeared that Comey saved her from incarceration in two ways.  First, he changed a few words in the report.  Second, he said that she didn’t mean to do it.  (Really?  I do find that hard to swallow.)

For crying out loud, she was Secretary of State.  That tells me that either A. Obama appointed a dumb Secretary of State, or B. Comey was doing what he could to keep Hillery out of prison.  Very likely, it was both.

Regardless, he certainly didn’t clear anyone with that report.  He did have two accomplishments.  First he did keep a criminal out of prison and make himself look like a fool.  It is something that will follow him beyond the grave.  There is no undue function for that mistake.

Well, there is one more he accomplished.  It did wonders for the reputation of his law school and college, maybe even his high school.  If his prior schools are proud of him, it makes them look even worse.  I only have a high school degree and I could see the woman was guilty.  His report made it obvious to a sixth grader, maybe a fifth grader.

Finally, there is one more thing I should point out.  If Hillary destroyed all that info on her server, it shouts one admission; that she could get in more trouble from the info than by destroying it.  Naturally, now, this side of eternity, very few will know it.  …and they ain’t talking.

I Don’t Understand It

I Don’t Get it.

NOW our nation prays.

I’m sure it will do some good,
but it seems to me that the praying should have started years ago.

If earnest prayer started decades ago
maybe seventeen young men and women would still be alive.

Of course, that would have offended a few atheist.

Let’s Get Real.

Let’s face the facts, the ones that our God-less leaders tell us don’t exists.

There are real thieves in this world.

Not all of them wear masks.

Some hide behind respectable business suits.  They use the law.

They steal.

It is in their nature.

They take that which is not theirs.

There are killers in this world.

Not all of them use guns.

Oddly some of them even call themselves doctor.

They murder.

It is in their nature.

They seek wealth, fame and power.

 

There are people in this world who are evil.

The worst of these are some of our leaders.

They do evil.

It is in their nature
and their evil manifests itself in dozens of ways.

 

If we continue to vote for God-less candidates,
why should we expect them to do anything good?

They seek to control.
They want money, power and fame,
even when it destroys others.

 

A little note: in the laws of the fifties, a young man would have been institutionalized and seventeen young men and women would still be alive.

 

On the other hand, with the way things are today, we may as well post signs on our schools, no guns allowed on premises, except for killers.
