Hark, and let fly the douchebags of the Anti-everything.

This was e-mailed to me by my buddy TotC

Too bad for the people that are not from this county expressing an opinion on how their taxes are spent, cause I gotta tell ya they're not spent here. Mine on the other hand are spent here and I haven't seen the destruction they are talking about. I thought the guy who mentioned his truck doing more damage was right on the money. Add to that it's like pulling teeth to get the county to do anything when nature does her thing every spring. I don't see where the damage could be as bad by comparison from the rally. We still have giant potholes in our roads out here from last spring. So, if the county isn't out fixing the roads they are not spending the tax money they receive anyway other than to pay the employees to sit on their asses.

As I said it seemed that most of the people highly opposed to the rally aren't even from here so I say this to them, go piss up a rope, it's not your money that pays for it. We pay our taxes so that some of it goes into road maintenance. Whatever happens to those roads from the rally is nothing compared to the condition of alot of roads in this county year-round.


Have I mentioned...

How much I like my former schoolmate Jason Smith? Well my buddy TotC gave me another reason this morning. This bill is very similar to last year's HB 668 with the preemption clause. You can read the full text of HB 2150 here. If you live in Missouri contact your rep and ask them to get behind this, HB 668 passed the house last year** lets get this one to do the same.

**HB 668 died quietly in senate committee despite all the attention it got from us.

Get to it while you are reminded of it.

Thanks to Jigsaw asking me about it in the GBC chat I went and added a couple more to the Good Reads list. Jigsaw herself and Brigid who I have been meaning to add for a long-time now.


Carry Piece 2.0

Before it said "Don't F*** With Me."

Now it screams "GO AWAY."

And it will do it even better with the 3.0 version that will involve some radioactive material.

New Additions.

Next is Matthew of Straight Forward in a Crooked World. Good tips for when things go horrendously Tits Up from someone that has been there and back as well as other musings.

Next post will entail an update to my previous post of carry pieces.

OK, I'm back.

The week before last I was laying low due to the crappy connection from the snow so internet travels were limited. But on to the matter at hand.

As some already know last Tuesday I lost my grandfather, the services were today. They were short and to the point just the way he wanted them, but it was a nice service anyway with a longtime friend of the family officiating. He didn't want a military funeral though he could have been accorded one yet the folded flag was present at the head of the casket which my Mother and Father received. It will receive a wood and glass case as soon as I get the materials to make it, (one of the many things my Grandpa taught me was carpentry). I will miss him as will the entire family. The grandsons, myself included, were the pallbearers along with several honorary ones that included my nephew. Not the first time I've performed that duty and honor though I do hope that it is the last, last time was for my Grandma 2 years ago but they are together again now, I know Grandpa missed her alot. Many of my friends on the web gave thoughts and prayers and I appreciate them all, Thank you.

I have a post or two in the works I wanted to get to sometime ago so I will go work on them. Once again I would like to thank those of you that wished us well it means alot.
