…”the highlight of my day”!…

20160422_105144-1_resizedThank goodness NATE has finally “Petered Out”. It has moved on north of “The Big Pell”. It has really been a wet & dreary day. I think even the Fish are bored. I’ve been out on the patio a few times, gazed down toward the water, & haven’t seen any activity. I’m now in my 2nd year of not allowin’ The NFL into my home. As a proud Veteran of the USAF I refuse to pay to be insulted by a bunch of overpaid radical athletes, that probably couldn’t make a livin’ doin’ anythin’ else & I’d bet many of’em can’t even count the amount of money, that high, they’re bein’ paid to play a game. Enough of that topic. But the highlight of my day was the Matas Greek Pizza I just enjoyed down here in The Cave. Thank you to who ever invented the Freezer! My condolences to a life long friend & her family on the loss of her Father this mornin’. My thoughts & prayers are with you. I hope you all have a better evenin’ than you had last night, where ever you are…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Let that sink in”…

Folks THIS is (see the quote below) truly a HORRIBLE thought! I saw this on someone else’s FB post this mornin’. I read it twice & really had to think it thru. And then it dawned on me IT’S TRUE! IT’S SCAREY! The Liberalism/Socialism that is bein’ taught to the youth of this country, K-5 thru College, has already started turnin’ the direction of this Great Nation. It didn’t start yesterday. It has been happenin’ for years, slowly, deliberately. A slight alterin’ of facts here & a deletion of facts there. A effective change in curriculum. “The Dumbin’ Down Of America”! Not only are they changin’ the direction of our country but they are Erasin’ the History, selectively, as they go. Many of YOU question & deny the term “GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS”. Really? I mean {{{ REALLY ! }}}.

“A Generation taught to hate the country will refuse to defend it as well. Let that sink in”…Author Unknown

It truly is {{{{{ SCARY ! }}}}}. God Bless America…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

 

…”What’s that phrase again?”…

I read this in a Face Book postin’ last night from “An Ole Boy from Gate City”. I thought it was well worth sharin’: “hughmm…am I the only one who finds it strange that blacks are disrespecting the same flag underwhich the armies fought that freed the slaves?…..just me I guess”.


That’s sad if you truly STOP & THINK about it. It points out JUST ONE of the problems with American History {{{ NOT ! }}} bein’ taught in Government & Private Schools. Maybe it’s somethin’ that SHOULD be taught, say possibly, durin’ ” BLACK HISTORY MONTH”. Naw-w-w, never mind…there would be too much TRUTH, about The/Our FLAG, in it. The DemocRats/Socialist/Liberals would go out of their frickin’ minds if “That CAT Got Out Of The Bag”! What’s that phrase again? “Just another way The Man’s keepin’ us Down”. Maybe there’s some truth to that?…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

 

…”ME?…HELL NO!…I’ll NEVER FORGET!”…

Tomorrow is “Patriot Day, Rememberin’ 9-11”!

I can’t believe IT HAS BEEN SIXTEEN (16) YEARS since we, The United States of America, were {{{{{ ATTACKED ! }}}}}. I’ll never forget. I was sittin’ in my office, in Oxford, AL. There was a TV on, in the temporary office (the Truck Drivers Lounge) I was in, as our buildin’ was under goin’ an addition at the time. Then there it was, bein’ reported on Live TV, just a few minutes after the First (1st) Hi-Jacked Air Craft Struck! At first Reporters were speculatin’ if it was a flight off course, an accidental crash, just sheer speculation as Reporters do just to be the first (1st) to get a Report/a SCOOP! out. As the moments passed by the Second (2nd) Hi-Jacked Air Craft came into the picture. It was makin’ a wide, low altitude sweepin’ turn, as it struck it’s target on that day, September 11, 2001. Now commonly referred to as “9-11”. There were Four (4) Civilian Commercial Aircraft, HI-JACKED, in order to accomplish their goals. The First (1st) Strike, Hi-Jacked Aircraft American Air Lines Flt #11, was flown into the North Tower of The World Trade Center (The Twin Towers). Then, just a short time later, The Second (2nd) Strike,Hi-Jacked United Airlines Flt #175, was flown into the South Tower of The World Trade Center.  In, what seemed like for ever, actually just a short time, the Twin Towers collapsed to the ground into a huge pile of rubble. A Third (3rd) Aircraft, Hi-Jack American Air Lines Flt #77 was flown into “The Pentagon”, Our Military Head Quarters, at about ground level. The first three Hi-Jacked aircraft had HIT Their Targets! The Fourth (4th) strike, Hi-Jacked United Airlines Flt #93, crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pa. The Passengers, NO THE HEROES, on board had begun to received information, from varied sources, about the first three (3) Hi-Jacked Aircraft & what had happened. They quickly realized what was happenin’ to them & decided to take actions to keep these Islamist Terrorist from hittin’ THEIR intended target, now believed to be The Capital Building in Washington, D.C. These Brave Americans, These HEROES, rebelled against the hijackers on board, & eventually caused the aircraft to crash into the ground, a seemingly remote field, killin’ everyone on board. God Bless These Heroes, These Patriots, & their families. {{{{{ SALUTE ! }}}}}…May they forever “Rest In Peace”! On “9-11” a total of 2,997 People were killed & over 6000 injured. IT WAS A PLANNED ATTACK BY A GROUP OF 19 ISLAMIC TERRORIST! These TERRORISTS were eventually linked to Osama bin Laden, leader of the Muslim Terrorist Group Al-Qaeda. ME?…HELL NO!… I’ll NEVER FORGET!…”Hold,em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Be prepared folks”…

Right now, it seems like, our country is battlin’ for its life. Literally! There are Wild Fires in the Western part of our Nation. Both Professional & Volunteer Fire Fighters are battlin’ as hard as they can to bring’em under control & extinguish’em completely. On our Gulf Coast, mainly The State of Texas, is sufferin’ some of the worst Floodin’ in their history! And the Rain is still fallin’. This is all the result of Hurricane Harvey, that is now a Tropical Storm. It appears, as though, it’s goin’ to be hangin’ around for several more days in that area. The side effects from HARVEY will be effectin’ others for some time to come. Such as GAS availability. Prices WILL, and in some cases already have, BE RISIN”! Almost as fast as the Floodin’ there in Texas. Then there all of those Dumb Ass “Anti-Everything” Organizations fightin’ in the streets across our nation. They’re servin’ no real purpose other than they hate what the other stands for with NO REAL Resolve possible. And, as if that’s not enough, we have all of our Lying, Thievin’ Professional Politicians fightin’ each other, Party -vs- Party, in WASHINGTON DC, OUR Nations Capitol, over who’s goin’ to put the most money in THEIR pockets before they vote to approve or disapprove any actions to help the Common Citizens. All I can say is “God Help Us”! And then there are those who want to eliminate that possible option to us. Be prepared folks & “watch your 6″…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”the Freedoms we enjoy still today”…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY USA! Today is the 241st Birthday of Our/MY Country. The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), also known as the American War of Independence, was under way. But on July 4th, 1776, in the midst of a War, The Thirteen Colonies declared independence as the United States of America. Many have Fought & TOO many have DIED, thru 241 years, fighting to preserve Our/MY Country/These United States of America. I hope that ALL YOU AMERICANS, today, will take just a few moments out of your celebrations of this day to remember all those Men & Women. For without their sacrifices, and all that fought alongside of them (even today), the Freedoms we enjoy still today would not exist. THINK about that. Think long & hard because too many are tryin’ to give those RIGHTS away. God Bless you all & God Bless The United States of America.” Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>

…”Now, is this tellin’ me, a Veteran, somethin'”…

Sittin’ here this mornin’, on July 1, 2017, I find myself readin’ various posts about the VA Hospital & the Negative Issues around the Country. As I mentioned in a previous Post the other day “I stand by MY Personal Experiences with the Birmingham, AL VA Hospital as ALL bein’ good experiences”! But as I sit here thinkin’ back about my last two trips to the VA Hospital my mind went to wanderin’ again. When I was there on March 13, 2017 I happen to notice all of the Pictures of, FORMER, President Obama scattered all over the halls I walked down. I guess the reason I  happen to notice them was, because, about that time I was hearing & reading things about the VA Administration facilities NOT having “Official Pictures of, FORMER, President Obama replaced with Pictures of, CURRENT, President Trump. At the time the “Official Excuse” issued was that there had not been an “Officially Approved Picture” of, CURRENT, President Trump issued. Some reports mentioned there had even been Pictures of, CURRENT, President Trump put up in place of, FORMER, President Obama, only to be removed over night & Obama pictures Re-Hung! So, when I was walkin’ down the halls of the Birmingham, AL VA Hospital this week, June 28, 2017, I noticed all of the Pictures of, FORMER, President Obama had been removed! Many, if not all, of the walls had been repainted. And I must say they looked nice! But I didn’t notice a SINGLE picture of, CURRENT, President Trump! I consider myself a pretty observant person. Now, I will say it is possible that I may have missed ONE. But they weren’t on almost EVERY hall as, FORMER, President Obama’s had been. Now, is this tellin’ me, a Veteran, somethin’? Hum-m-m…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
