Looking back this week is slim due to my travels, but the articles that did come out were heavy. Donald Trump dropped the ball on abortion, and I addressed that in Deep Survival. What that was all about was the tendency of people, while in the midst of a winning streak, or performing everyday tasks will sometimes do the dumbest things for apparently no reason, either getting killed, or in this case, killing a political career. While it remains to be seen how much damage the statement in question caused, one would think that the “Donald” would have at least taken a breath before making it. We shall see.
I’ve always viewed “No Knock” warrants as an affront to the 4th Amendment and Knock Knock is a prime example of this. I’m still looking into the event, the cops claiming the entire drug cartel was holed up in the apartment, while the man arrested is saying he was just reading his Bible, you know, you get that. The esteemed District Attorney of Bell County, Texas has seen fit to charge the man with capital murder. I’m not going to put this down. If this was a home invasion, and the man was just defending himself I’m gonna let the D. A. taste my mutton and see how he likes it.
The Eight-Hundred-Pound Gorilla and Votes, Lies, and Videotapes basically deal with the same subject, the subject being that the Republican Party is by no means “pubic” but a “Good Ol’ Boys” club that does what it damn well pleases, and its supporters can just stuff it. I was very pleased to see that following that post Wild Bill For America followed with The End of the GOP. Like me, he is direct, to the point, and calls it like it is, which is, the Republican Party has been out of control for years, and Donald Trump is on them like Chris Hansen on a pervert! They may get their way this time, but this is not going to end well for the Party. Trump has a broad base support, and the smoke and mirrors generated by his own party is so obvious that the blind man down on Main Street can see it.
It’s good to be back in Texas. Travel is great, but those 737 wheels touching down in Austin is better. I found the Mormon Culture to be a little more mundane than I’d supposed, basically a survivalist sect, bent on isolation out of disgust at what’s happening in America today. Kinda like Texas. I’m convinced that if Texas and Utah team up the fat lady will definitely sing. Joseph did you know we’s all gonna ride the train?
In One More Thing, Now normally this would be the end of the story. That is, it would be except for the fact that in the rush to rob Steve of his product, Bill overlooked one small issue. Windows didn’t work! I reflected on my time at Apple. We lost Steve four years ago, and it’s been sixteen since I was at Apple, but it seems like yesterday.
I am forever amazed by people trusting politicians so I did a little tutorial called This is My Surprised Face to bring them up to date. Then there’s Ted Cruz. Did you see that picture at the beginning of one of the debates where he had his hand inside his coat while all the others had their hands on their heart? Big scandal! Everyone thought he was a Mason. Ya’ll missed it. He thinks he’s Napoleon. Ted is a master debater. Say that real fast three times and see what comes out. That means he’s a great manipulator. Get it? Master debater . . . manipulator, somebody stop me.
BURNS! Was part of the seriousness of this week. I kept returning again and again to the subject as the government tried to suppress witnesses, and cover their butts. Contrary to my original idea, Burns, Oregon is most likely going to be a benchmark in the struggle to regain America as we once knew it. The almost comical takeover of a building in a wildlife reserve turned very serious with the death of Lavoy Finicum. That event is unfolding so fast that I’m having to update links on my original article “No Gun In The Snow.” From outright lies to Main Stream Media trying to put words into the mouths of witnesses, this charade unfolds in full glory of a government gone insane.
I’m basically a Trump man, but everybody likes a good Knockout, and that article praised Cruz and his effort to take Iowa, and oh yeah, he cheated, but shucks, he’s a politician! Ok, let’s get to the crotch of this. That’s not a typo, it’s where Ted Cruz kicked Donald Trump Monday! The logic seemed to follow the theory that if you can make a billion dollars then you can run a country. Shucks folks, El Chapo can make a billion dollars. C’mon! As much as we don’t like it, politics is a vocation. Playing the crowd, and working the polls are two different things, and I’m not talking about opinion polls of people who may, or may not vote, I’m talking about people who actually get up and go and vote! Two different critters.
Johnny Johnson Was My Friend. Nuff said. Yesterday, at the Capitol, the one thing I kept being reminded of was Johnny was not there. When someone leaves in such a way you begin to search for memories. I have one. Johnny and I spent about three hours one night on a chat critiquing whiskey. He was a Jack Daniels man, and I am Jim Beam, but we were conservatives and both realized that there is room for all kinds of people in the world. Johnny was a gentleman, and not one rude word ever came out of his mouth that I know of.
Every now and then an article comes along that just won’t quit, and No Gun In The Snow was just such an article. There WAS no gun in the snow. . . I stuck it up the Feds butts! Wanna see something funny? Now that they have read this watch a gun suddenly appear. I would have put it in the initial release, but I’m just a Simple Ol’ Boy From Austin, so what do I know? Hey Feds. . . . GOTCHA!
