Palin

Very interesting that Gov. Sarah Palin resigned. I can't really blame her, she and her family had to endure way more than necessary abuse. I also think her husband had to be saying enough is enough!
But then again What if this is just the steps necessary in the bigger plan? I don't know but I do think she is very, very smart.
I guess we will see.

SO MANY ICONS ARE GONE

Well it's been a while. So sad Miss California gat fired anyway, I'm sure she will do well.

WOW so many interesting and sad things happening. Don't know where to start?
I spent my time in the Military so i can feel for what's happening in Iran so sad but hopefully for a good end result. Interesting how much more we get to see what is happening with all this new technology.

All these Icon deaths WOW. Ed Mcmahon great icon but he was old and this is part of life the comming of the end, maybe he had financial troubles but he had a hell of a great carrer and lifestyle many of us envy.
Farrah Fawcett What a pretty, now she was not really old but she was young either, still very sad and such a awful slow way to go. Interesting to see all the interesting information about all these icons when they die. I think she was awesome.
When I die if i have the choice I want to go like Billy Mays did you do your normal things, go to bed, and never wake up. I know it is tough for the family but so is a slow painful death just slow and painful difference.
By the way I thought Billy Mays was a fantastic success for what he did. I don't know what kind of guy he was, but I want to think he was cool, I have heard many nice comments about him. Since I am and have been a salesman most of my working career he was most definitely one of my idols.
Michael Jackson probably the greatest example of how success and money are not necessarily happiness. There are many comparisons between Michael and Elvis ( who was my era and my Idol) even though the music was different. Their successes were similar, their fame was similar, their screwed up lifestyles were similar, their drug abuse was similar and their untimely death was similar. I wonder if they are singing in heaven together?

Donald the man! I am so glad Donald Trump did not fold.
I've had many friends and acquaintances over the years that are gay and most have been quite nice people. But Perez Hilton is a Fa**gggg all the way he is sickening and disgusting. I can't believe Trump would have someone like that as a judge. By the way what is he supposed to be famous for???

Just thinking!

Again a long stretch since last submission.I was just sitting here and thinking How much my life has changed.I wanted to share a quote I read.

Man is in love and loves what vanishes;
What more is there to say?
- W. B. Yeats
This quote might be so simple yet so complex. When I was young and so self absorbed I lived my life knowing (within) I could not control the future. But trying so desperately to do just that.
The sad part of that is hurting the ones you love and who love you, thinking that control protects.
At the time I would never have admitted that I had no control or could not gain control, I thought I had and needed to maintain it.
The best way I can describe how I saw things at that time is in a little scenario like so:
I am in the jungle with my family following behind me, we need to get somewhere, I don't know where just somewhere. I am leading them, I am carring a weapon for protection and I am scared to death, I have no idea what is around the bend, but I know I must protect and defend my family. I my mind, for us to succeed in getting to where ever we are going, everyone needs to co-operate and follow my guidance or we are in grave danger.
As silly as that now sounds, I truly believe that thinking was so burned into my brain, that I could not trust anyone and believe little.
It was only when I had a breakdown 25 years ago that I came to believe and was able to let go slowly.I don't know if I will ever come to trust as much as i would like? But living life trusting in a high power is soooo much more rewarding, along with a wonderful acceptance of the world and people around us.
I have no idea how this thinking came to be, and I am sad for the people who where in my life and loved me at the height of that time. But I am grateful to have found a different way of thinking and believing.
I am sure that I would never have reached this place thru discussion or reading or TV, for me there was no one that I trusted ( I was going to also say "and respected" but i am not sure that even would apply here) for me it needed to be high impact and it was a breakdown.
I am sad when i see others going thru what is easily recognizable to me and know there is little if anything that will change there thinking.
Anyway have a wonderful day and love the people in your life.Walt

Sarah Palin Porn


I know better than anyone that i am not a writer, but i just cannot, not comment on these idiot so called writers who come up with these stupid comparisons about a Vice Presidential candidate and Porn.

I was just reading a blog about the interview Gibson had With Sarah Palin and it just got my blood boiling. that, this is supposed to be intelligence??? how some idiot can make comparisons about lips, video clips and a smile and that is supposed to have something to do with Porn. "GIVE ME A BREAK" If that is intelligence than thank god i am not part of that crowd.

SARAH PALIN HOT ENOUGH FOR PORN!
SARAH PALIN PORN STAR CANDIDATE!
I cannot believe all these stupid, thoughtless headlines. I think the people thinking in this manner have their head up their ass.
I am not one to have a lot of respect for many of the people in office right now, especially the Senate. where I would like to see a complete change.
"Number they get in office and park for ever - WRONG"
I am sure not all, Senator's are bad, corrupt or even criminal. but I am sure the money and power are powerful aphrodisiacs, not the average human can easily resist.
Once they get in office it's impossible to get rid of them.
But back to Palin, I had almost no interest in this Presidential race. same old same old, lies, lies, bullshit, before election promises, promises, (so much bull crap, waste of my time and money)after election back to same old nothing.
Now obviously I don't know if this is real but Sarah sure got my attention ( and since when is good looks a bad thing) looks just are.
First, like in any other product or service looks got my attention.
Second I listened, sounded good - "OK more" I listened "OK more" still sounds good "OK more"
WOW good bad or indifferent this is more listening than i have done on any election i since Kennedy and so far i like what i hear. maybe, just maybe we have something that could work here ?
But i am interested for the first time in ages.

Really funny story

A friend of mine forwarded this very funny story to me, so i do not know who the author is.
he talks of a taser, but it is a stun gun and not a taser.

Pocket Taser Stun Gun, a great gift for the wife. A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Taser for their anniversary submitted this. True story!
Last weekend I saw something at Larry's Pistol & Pawn Shop that sparked my interest. The occasion was our 15th anniversary and I was looking for a little something extra for my wife Julie. What I came across was a 100,000-volt, pocket/purse-sized taser. The effects of the taser were supposed to be short lived, with no long-term adverse affect on your assailant, allowing her adequate time to retreat to safety....?? WAY TOOCOOL!Long story short, I bought the device and brought it home. I loaded two AAA batteries in the darn thing and pushed the button. Nothing! I was disappointed. I learned, however, that if I pushed the button AND pressed it against a metal surface at the same time; I'd get the bluearc of electricity darting back and forth between the prongs. AWESOME!!!
Unfortunately, I have yet to explain to Julie what that burn spot is on the face of her microwave. Okay, so I was home alone with this new toy, thinking to myself that it couldn't be all that bad with only two triple-A batteries, right? There I sat in my recliner, my cat Gracie looking on intently (trusting little soul) while I was reading the directions and thinking what I really needed to try this thing out on a flesh & blood moving target. I must admit I thought about zapping Gracie (for a fraction of a second) and thought better of it. She is such a sweet cat. But, if I was going to give this thing to my wife to protect herself against a mugger, I did want some assurance that it would work as advertised. Am I wrong? So, there I sat in a pair of shorts and a tank top with my reading glasses perched delicately on the bridge of my nose, directions in one hand, and taser in another. The directions said that a one-second burst would shock and disorient your assailant; a two-second burst was supposed to cause muscle spasms and a major loss of bodily control; a three-second burst would purportedly make your assailant flop on the ground like a fish out of water. Any burst longer than three seconds would be wasting the batteries. All the while I'm looking at this little device measuring about 5" long, less than 3/4 inch in circumference; pretty cute really and (loaded with two itsy, bitsy triple-A batteries) thinking to myself, 'no possible way!' What happened next is almost beyond description, but I'll do my best...? I'm sitting there alone, Gracie looking on with her head cocked to one side as to say, 'don't do it dipshit,' reasoning that a one second burst from such a tiny little ole thing couldn't hurt all that bad. I decided to give myself a one second burst just for heck of it. I touched the prongs to my naked thigh, pushed the button, and HOLY MOTHER OF GOD . . .WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION . . . WHAT THE HELL!!!
I'm pretty sure Jessie Ventura ran in through the side door, picked me up in the recliner, then body slammed us both on the carpet, over and over and over again. I vaguely recall waking up on my side in the fetal position, with tears in my eyes, body soaking wet, both nipples on fire, testicles nowhere to be found, with my left arm tucked under my body in the oddest position, and tingling in my legs? The cat was making meowing sounds I had never heard before, clinging to a picture frame hanging above the fireplace, obviously in an attempt to avoid getting slammed by my body flopping all over the living room. Note: If you ever feel compelled to 'mug' yourself with a taser, one note of caution: there is no such thing as a one second burst when you zap yourself! You will not let go of that thing until it is dislodged from your hand by a violent thrashing about on the floor. A three second burst would be considered conservative? SON-OF-A-BITCH, THAT HURT LIKE HELL!!! A minute or so later (I can't be sure, as time was a relative thing at that point), I collected my wits (what little I had left), sat up and surveyed the landscape. My bent reading glasses were on the mantel of the fireplace. The recliner was upside down and about 8 feetor so from where it originally was. My triceps, right thigh and both nipples were still twitching. My face felt like it had been shot up with Novocain, and my bottom lip weighed 88 lbs. I had no control over the drooling. Apparently I shit myself, but was too numb to know for sure and my sense of smell was gone. I saw a faint smoke cloud above my head which I believe was came from my hair. I'm still looking for my nuts and I'm offering a significant reward for their safe return!!
P. S. My wife loved the gift, and now regularly threatens me with it!

Another cool story

This story posted by Chuck last Tuesday:

I got a TASER for my Mom, in her 80's and still driving after the following incident: She was stopped at a light and a man opened the door to her car and got in. He said he wanted to go to somewhere a few miles away. She started screaming and he got out and ran away. Maybe he was just an idiot and not someone intent to harm my Mother, but it scared us both very much. I know she would never be able to shoot and maybe kill someone. And maybe this guy didn't really have intent to harm. We'll never know. But NOW she has a TASER and will be ready if scraming doesn't work next time.

I also want to talk about leaving the TASER at the scene of the attack!
I heard a discussion where someone was arguing about leaving the TASER at the scene.

My response is. The reason taser replaces the taser for leaving at the scene is because, if you try taking the taser with you, two things will happen.
  1. When you attempt to remove the cartridge from taser while it is still working, it will shock you!
  2. If you succeed in removing the cartridge (which i dought you can), you just shut down the shocking of the attacker and now he is starting to recover and come after again, while you are still fooling around with the taser.

So all and all I suggest folloing the manufacturer design recomendations and use the product to maximize your safety.

And get the hell away from the scene as fast as humanly possible.

Just wanted to share some information about a new product TASER is introducing for Police use.


Introducing the TASERXREP™ – eXtended Range Electronic Projectile. The XREP projectile is self-contained, wireless, and fires from a 12-gauge shotgun. It delivers the same Neuro Muscular Incapacitation (NMI) bio-effect as our handheld TASER X26 Electronic Control Device (ECD), but can be delivered to a distance of 65 feet (20 meters), combining blunt impact with field-proven TASER NMI.
Looks to be quit an exciting weapon. I can't wait to see what the version for public use turns out to be.
But i guess that is quite a way away.

I just had to put this story right up front. I am sooo! glad Terri came out of this one safe. but boy is this a scary story, just to think about what this durt bag was up to.

This is Terri's story
the reason why I came looking for a Taser! My name is Terri and I went to the movies with a friend, it was the late show in a small theater near the outskirts of town, sort of an industrial area, no residential homes. anyway, we stayed to watch the credits then used the restrooms and ended up being the last people to leave the theater. We had to park so far away from the theater because of all the cars that were there when we first arrived, now, the parking lot was deserted, I think the workers must park in the back. So as we are walking toward the car, a big guy (everyone is big to me : ) started walking out into the parking lot from the side of the building where the alley is, towards our car! We were worried right away because there were no other cars out there, just ours and so there was no reason for him to be walking out there! we kept walking and started trying to figure out what to do, should we run to the locked car? should we run back to the locked doors of the building? Should we try and call the police? I snuck my cell-phone out of my purse and tried to feel for the numbers to call 911, I did not want him to see what I was doing and I think I ended up dialing 622 instead of 911! So we ended up making it to the car, I started to put my keys into it and suddenly he put his hand on the crack of the top of my door and kept me from opening it! I just stood there, scared and he asked what movie we saw, if we liked it, did we get popcorn or candy bars and other stupid questions, the whole time I just stood there, keys in the door, staring at my car window and he kept asking stupid questions. Then he reached out and touched my shoulder where my purse strap was and I almost started screaming at the top of my lungs but just then MY GIRLFRIEND says to him "back the hell up before I drop you on this pavement"
We both slowly turned to look at her and she stood there, glaring at him with a small black and silver "thing" in her hand. she pointed it at him menacingly and again told him he better get going. He started to say something about "that's not a stun gun" when she said "boy, I am about to put 40 thousand volts of electricity into you and when you wake up, you will already be cuffed in the back of the police car" she told me to hold up my phone and in a timid voice I told him I had dialed 911 when we first saw him. He took another look at us and the item in her hand and he took off running and was gone by the time I started breathing! We both jumped in the car and got out of there so fast, that was certainly the most scared I ever remember being! When we got home, she showed me her "stun gun". It was her cell phone, with a lighter pressed against it at the bottom... I am not sure how she pulled it off, but she did. Her just pretending to have a stun gun gave her more confidence than I ever saw her have before. Now I am convinced that I need to have one. a REAL one. I do NOT want to be a victim, next time I will be prepared.

Boy, I gotta say, I don't know what to do to get people to post.
  1. I have plenty of people looking! and reading I guess. ( I am very aware that my writing skills are extremely limited)
  2. I am offering a great prize! just for writing.
  3. I think it is a very interesting topic.
  4. A topic that most people can relate to when being totally honest.
  5. I think now, the submission process is quite simple. ( may not have been in the beginning)
  6. I am stumped ?
  7. Would anyone out there make some suggestions, that might help people put the fingers to the keyboard and submit.

thanks

Crime

I was just reading about all the new crime in our town, WOW Crime is up. According to the Herald tribune their were 4 home invasions in just the last week.
This is not a joke, this is a serious concern. I guess with business being so bad and price just skyrocketing, things are not good and we need to be on the cautious outlook.
Police are telling everyone to keep doors locked and not to be to careless.
I don't think we need to be paranoid, but we do have to be more watchful and careful about things.
