I've been crying lately. Thinking about the world as it is. Why must we go on hating?

How much more can we as a nation take? We have the war in Afghanistan, Health care reform, cap and trade, the nations rising deficit, raciseum, unemployment, global warming. Our state and local Governments raising taxes to cover budget short falls. We are selling our nations highways to foreign entities. States pondering succeeding from the "union".

How does this impact you? How do think it impacts our state? Where does it end?

When you take your last breath, it will end. The rest of us will be paying higher taxes for the rest of our lives.

Homers, that was funny.

I burst out laughing when I read the occupant of the White House was awarded the Nobel. I thought, "Noooo . . this is a joke, right?"

O M G ! ! !

It wasn't a joke.

Sometimes, if you don't laugh, it'll make you weep.

These wacko events are part of the plan to keep us confused and in chaos.

Stock pile some food...about 90 days worth (more if possible)...and some seeds for the spring planting....

Forget about the media hype and begin to take care of your personal situation.
For a few months we may not have gasoline, food on the shelves, electricity, or safety.
With just a few things, we can survive in West Virginia.

Obama watched a football game last weekend. On Monday, he was awarded the Heisman trophy.

This proves without a shadow of a doubt what I've been saying for years here...a person doesn't need to know anything or be qualified to be in government...call it a high wage welfare system..

Best Medical and Medical Leave

All expenses (food, travel, vacation abroad, ect) paid

Best retirement.

Best stock pork folio....yes, pork.

and the awards and plaques, gold plated shovels and jobs given to cronies just keep them in office.

Remember the old "Hee Haw" show from years ago? One character commented "Crime doesn"t pay." The other character replied "Yes, it does, but it costs so much to get elected".

Try not to watch too much cable news or read political message boards.

Instead, examine and enjoy the bounty of your life. Relish the little things and and don't take for granted the pleasures of food, friends, family, safety, sex, curiosity and love.

Life--YOUR life, not those of people on TV or in the news--really is beautiful if you really take the time to examine it.

meditate, pray, give thanks.
