Song of the week: When The Sh*t Hits The Fan, CJ

In a sluggish economy
Inflation, Recession,
Hits the Land of the Free.
Standing on an employment line.
Blame the government for hard times.
We just get by, however we can.
We all gotta duck when the shit hits the fan.
Ten kids in a Cadillac,
Standing in line for welfare checks.
"Let's all reach off the state."
"Gee the money's really great!"
We just get by, however we can.
We all gotta duck when the sh*t hits the fan.
Soup lines.
Free loaves of bread.
Five pound blocks of cheese.
Bags of groceries.
Social Security,
Has run out on You and Me.
We do whatever we can,
Gotta duck when the sh*t hits the fan......

When I was in high school I went through a two to three year period from being a born again Christian to being anti-establishment. It was during my angry year that I discovered bands like Black Flag, Dead Kennedy's, Ramones, Patti Smith, The Damned, Clash, and of course CJ. It's funny... I've written here before... a song is very personal, it can take you back to a different time and place. The miracle of music is that it can change meaning over time. This song has a whole new meaning for me today...

Podcast of the week: Dr. Roy Spencer- Global Warming Is Not Man Made Young Americas Foundation Author and scientist Dr. Roy Spencer presents data to students that global warming is primarily a natural occurrence. This speech took place at Young America’s Foundation’s National Conservative Student Conference. Length: 00:40:46

There is no doubt in my mind that the top folks pushing Global Warming now known as "Climate Change" are pushing a socialist agenda. These people want us to not have stuff... to live more simply... Now, mind you- there is nothing wrong with living more simply. However, my husband and I and every single solitary person in this country has the right to pursue our happiness... our dream.. So... get off me you effing liberals--- I suspect this is one of the reasons Rick Wagoner, former CEO for GM was terminated by the President of the United States... Rick Wagoner made the biggest gas guzzling vehicle on the road... the GMC Yukon. OH.. he must be evil. My God. the President of the United States terminated the CEO... Good GAWD!! Where do we live? Since when does the government have authority over a private business? DO YOU SEE THE DANGERS OF TAKING HANDOUTS? Be it a company or a solitary person... once you accept a handout from the government... the government owns you. You lose freedom... you lose liberty. YOU LOSE. I digress. Anyway, my brother has one of these baby's and it is really nice.... really... Mr. Wagoner made these because up until gas prices shot up last summer, people wanted these behemoths. The people wanted them...

Our neighbor's young daughter, Danielle has an electric car... quite frankly... hers is larger than the yellow one pictured above...


I'm disgusted by everything in Washington. What the heck are they doing to our country? I think I'm going to post something over at my other place about a "little tax" that went into effect on April 1. So, rather than go on another ramble I offer you a diversion.

Cindy sent this link to me and it has really struck my interest. The link is to a live web cam watching an eagles nest in West Virgina over the Potomac River. There is an eaglet and some may think watching a couple of eagles- Mom and Pop raising a baby may be like watching paint dry, but I can guarantee it is not. I was pretty sad yesterday, but watching them take care of this defenseless baby... poking at him when he was sleeping as if to check to see if he was breathing... I don't know... it gave me some hope... not like the kind in the White House. Watching the symbol of our nation has provided me with inspiration. So, enjoy... Here are two links-- the first is to the live web cam, the second is to the blog. web cam and blog. At the time I am typing this, Mom and Dad have both left the nest. Baby is sleeping soundly. I'll be adding both links to my sidebar. Thanks BBH!

Have a great week everyone!
