Politically incorrect city name under fire.

n an age where Truth gets the back seat to political correctness, in an age when hiring the most qualified individual leads to charges of discrimination, in an age when simple disagreement gives way to shouts of "RACISM!", and in an age when truth is called "hate speech," we need to reexamine some facts.

NOTE: Washington Redskins football is being hassled and bullied into changing their name: So far, they have resisted.

NOW, A Minnesota city, The largest city in Anoka County, is under fire for its name. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson both plan bringing bus loads of people from all over the nation to protest and petition this city into changing its name.

Al Sharpton has equated the name with slavery and bigotry. Jesse Jackson has called it a "slur of the worst type," and is demanding that the city pay reparations.

Is there no end to the outlandish stupidity of these absurd folks who play the race card at every turn?
The citizens and government of what was once known as Coon Creek Rapids tend to agree. Since the incorporation of the city in 1952, it has become a prosperous place, a strapping city of over 61000.

My advice to COON RAPIDS, MN, and Washington Redskins: Giving in is a sign of cowardice. STAND UP FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE!

(Note: This was written as a satire on the "Politically Correct" movement. As of this time, I know of no challenge to the city name...but I do suspect that such a challenge MAY be in the offing. Stand Firm!)

It's time to vent!

I've been away from here for some time, nearly 5 months, but now I'm FUMING...

The government of this country is supposed to protect, in so much as it is possible without denying us our God-given rights, the states and the people of this country.  The President is supposed to enforce the laws which are supposed to protect us -- and yet...

Current crisis is not averted and is the worst possible situation imaginable.

When Typhoid fever hit this nation, people were quarantined, carriers of the disease (even without symptoms) were kept apart (I hate to use the word segregated, but it is the word) to protect the rest of the people.  Typhoid was virulent, often fatal, and untreatable, incurable.  It was NOT, however, a swift killer.

Science and Physicians have managed to control, and in some cases eradicate or nearly so, diseases like rubella, smallpox, polio.  But many governments, our own included, sit on stockpiles of the germs and viruses, tampering with them to make them more effective killers.  HOW DOES THIS HELP US?!

Obama's refusal to enforce the border laws is becoming well known, and those who flood the border are carrying diseases which we've controlled well.  This is not safety!

But now, this government is doing (or not doing?) the unthinkable.  They are bringing home 2 people who are exposed to, and quite possibly will be come ill with, the most virulent and swiftest killer ever known in the realm of living things -- the one that could, conceivable, wipe out more than 90% of the world's population -- if that disease "gets loose."  And instead of doing something about it, the President is "letting it happen."

Atlanta is home to the only US acknowledged stockpile of Smallpox.  And they are bring in, with 2 very likely walking-dead individuals, the worst plague since the black death, and one that has the potential to do far and away more damage than Bubonic Plague every did.

DEVIL, THY NAME IS EBOLA.

To protect the health of our citizens, we MUST NOT allow the two to return, despite the fact that they are citizens.

We're told that the containment is the tightest in the country.  FOOL-PROOF?  Well, they're constantly building a better class of fool.

How long will it be before containment fails?  When will be notified that the disease is rampant and killing everyone?

DEVIL, THY NAME IS EBOLA.

We know the name of the co-conspirator.  If no order stopping the import of this disease is issued, we know, too, thy face.  But who, in 2 years, will be around to accuse you?

You are complicit in this plot to destroy if you take no action.  I'm watching.  The Nation watches.  And you, in your own self-absorbed, narcissistic way, play golf.  As I write this, the plane may be arriving.  Kiss your ass goodbye, America.  We're bringing home a killer who will soon be loose on the street and unstoppable.

Injuries and challenges...

  1. So many people are telling me to "Take it easy" because of that leg injury from Sunday. The Doctor told me it could take 2-3 weeks or 2-3 MONTHS to heal properly. Told me not to ride a bike... And a second opinion of the same nature comes from the Northern land....

    I'm not going to overdo things. I know my limits...which is why I am constantly trying to challenge them and beat them!

    When I went on an 18 mile ride last year, I had never gone that far before. Then I challenged that, got 28, then 30, then 45!

    The doc told me to stay off the bike.. I went on yesterday did not quite 2 miles. That's not quite two miles more than the doc told me to do. Why do I push my luck?

    It's that rhetorical question: Why does a man climb a mountain?

    We are human. We are DRIVEN to challenge each other, challenge ourselves. We'll get injured at times. We will sleep when we are tired. We will continue to push our limits.

    The first man to wonder about getting to the moon passed on a dream. It wasn't possible...somebody challenged that, got farther. Someone beat that. And then it was beaten again. Then someone got into the sky. Then to space. Then, finally, they got to the moon. And Mars. And Venus. And out of the Solar system...We continue to push outward. We continue to challenge our limits; we HAVE no limits...

    The only limits we have are in our minds. And someone will challenge those!

    "If man were meant to fly, he'd have wings." We HAVE wings. We just need to learn how to use them!

Star Trek on Slavery... Think about this, huh?

Star Trek has always given me food for thought. And one quote I have found to be astonishingly thoughtful comes out of the Episode, "The Measure of a Man."

Guinan and Picard are in ten-forward, during a recess in a hearing regarding Data's Status...

Guinan: Consider that in the history of many worlds, there have always been disposable creatures. They do the dirty work. They do the work that no one else wants to do because it's too difficult or too hazardous. And an army of Datas, all disposable... You don't have to think about their welfare, you don't think about how they feel. Whole generations of disposable people.
Capt. Picard: You're talking about slavery.
Guinan: Oh, I think that's a little harsh.
Capt. Picard: I don't think that's a little harsh, I think that's the truth. But that's a truth that we have obscured behind a... comfortable, easy euphemism: 'Property'! But that's not the issue at all, is it?

Now LOOK AT THOSE WORDS: "WHOLE GENERATIONS OF DISPOSABLE PEOPLE."

And Picard's response, shortly thereafter: "That's a truth that we have obscured behind a ... comfortable, easy euphemism: 'Property.'"

Think about it, you "Pro-Choice" crowd... You are doing EXACTLY THE SAME... Hiding behind "MY BODY," "MY HEALTH," "MY CHOICE," and "ABORTION."

Call it what it is: MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE.

It's time for you MURDERERS to stop lying to yourselves...AS I SEE IT!
