Things that make you scratch your head...and other observations

Observation: 
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/observation

Mostly these days I observe that it's a crazy freaking world out there...I'll go there shortly.

An inch of so of wet snow covers the ground this morning...I headed out to clear off the feeding station of the back yard birds and rodent Squirrels after I penned a few insults at a variety of usual suspects on facebook...Gawd, has it come down to this?  Spending/wasting and hour of my time in the morning flaming insults at morons too stupid, blind, or ignorant, to realize what the Hell is going on in the world.  So I look in the mirror and ask myself  "Who's the stupid one"? 

Anyway, done with that futile effort and the backyard feeding, here I sit with my second cup of coffee about finished...not much effect since I'm mixing 2/3rds decaf with 1/3 caffeine, following the directions on the Bronchitis Meds.  I am now on my 8th of the 15 day supply.  As for the Bronchitis, I'm continuing to feel fairly good, but Sinus is draining like the Everglades under the watchful eye of the Army Corp of Engineers....

Last night Garry and I headed to Van Wert....first to drop off a check at the local Ford Dealer for a Handicap Accessible Van we have purchased for MRSI, since he is the CEO and I'm on the board...it was the least I could do.  We treated ourselves to a couple sips of one of his home brews and shared a bottle of a local dark brew he had picked up when his group traveled to Punxsutawney for the Phil Shadow Watching, earlier this month...

Once done with those activities, we headed for our pre-season umpire banquet at Fricker's.  Nothing fancy, but we did eat our share of boneless wings and side dishes, and I downed a Black and Blue Draft {a mix of Guinness and Blue Moon}...our guest speaker was long time coach and two-time State Champion Coach, Mike "Spank" Schumm of Parkway...here is a photo of me and Spank discussing a hit batter during last year's Sectional Final at Lima Shawnee.  Spank did a great job speaking and talking baseball before we broke up about 8:30 and Garry and I headed back to Celina in the lite but wet snow.  That was the day in a nutshell...

Bat Sheet Crazy Folks.....

One thing, rather one of many things, despite my many years and travels, education, etc., I had a hard time figuring out...although it is now becoming clear to me...is how any Veteran, especially one who has been to war, can support assholes like Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, John Kerry, and others like them, who hate our very being?

Anybody that has read or visited this site over the past 5 plus years knows that I despised the military life, and it's rules, orders, lifestyle, regulations, leaders, etc, I was a trouble maker throughout my tour....however I don't despise those that served with me, or the purpose of the military.  The Kenyan, The Klintons, and Traitor Kerry, do...yet there are some, the vast minority to be sure, that support these troop hating, anti-American sons a bitches...go figure!

My Sky Cop buddy Big Sam Lewis and I have been having a back and forth with one such nimrod on facebook for the past few days...."Mike" it seems loves Obammy and hates us Right Wing Types.  Given the fact that Mike went to high school at a diversified crap hole near Dayton, and then went to college at the most left wing facility this side of UC/Berkeley.  {that would be Antioch in Yellow Springs, Ohio}:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/18/magazine/can-antioch-college-return-from-the-dead-again.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0


This Marxist dump closed down a few years ago, but it appears that it got back funding from Brother Chavez and Uncle Fidel and has reopened, so it's mindless morons of Marxism can return to their Freedom and American hating ways.  "Mike" is one of the Alumni, so he says, and majored in "Community Organizing"...sound familiar?  Yep, our bastard child Kenyan Born Prez has a brother in arms.

Still I have tried to figure out how a self-proclaimed "Combat" Veteran, or any Veteran for that matter, can support the American hating far left...then like a slap in the ass, it comes to me....

<<<"FREE STUFF"!!!!!  {kind of like the backyard birds and Squirrels enjoy}

Yep, old Mike is a disabled vet, so he used that free money to go to a college that hates America and the ways of the Founding Fathers.  While the vast majority of vets use the benefits given them, for good use, whether it be for college, VA Care, housing, etc, most try to give back to the country that gave them those opportunities, post military....others use those benefits to bilk the taxpayers of the country by getting as much as they can, whether deserved or not...and then using the freedom of speech to bad mouth the Republic they served.  The Founding Fathers would be so proud.  {Not!}

So, yes, I did not enjoy the Military life or lifestyle...but I still love the Republic, just not the so-called leaders the freeloaders have put in place.   I realize that we get the Government we deserve...and sadly today we are "getting it"...the Obama Nation loves "Free Stuff" and of course somebody has to pay for it....at least until the fatted calf has been slain.

Don't get me wrong...I realize that Veterans are disrespected by all sides of the political spectrum to a certain degree, and by Veterans themselves, Kerry, Hagle, Colin Powell, the ultimate EEO hire, and others come to mind...but to support Obama and his Republic hating Administration is as bad as it gets, especially for someone who claims to support and protect the Constitution.

back later>>>>>Will March come in like a Lion?  It appears, at least here in Western Ohio, that answer is "yes".

Think Ole Mike might read that. Hope he does!

Sam said...

I just hope that March Lion has his fill and is gone by the 8th Brother . Ive done all I could to entice Ole Mikey to join us , me ,at or around our Celebration in Daytonwhich is right in his neighborhood but I seriously doubt if he will ever come out from behind that veil that hide s him so well called his trusted computer . WEe might see him in Sept at Kokomo but as we all know thats a long time off and a lot could happen especially with old Farts like us .
Hell as you probaly saw I even offfered to help him out of the car with his wheelchair or walker and into Packy's , whatever he prefers to travel in that day and a free drink ! What else Could an old "Combat " Vet brother like him Want ?.
thuth is if he was hurt in sev rvice he probably fell off that "Boat " he was on. In Country Vietnam Vet .I seriously doubt that .
