Laughing at Rick *Oops* Perry O Day- Joan Rivers Abortion and Indictment Edition|
Duh. Again, proof that glasses don't add brains. Rick Perry tried to use Joan Rivers to push his restrictive abortion law Rivers was undergoing a routine procedure at a New York outpatient surgery center when the 81-year-old entertainer went into cardiac arrest and died earlier this month. Health officials in New York are investigating. "It was interesting that Joan Rivers and the procedure that she had done, where she died, that was a clinic," Perry said. "It's a curious thought, that if they had that type of regulations in place whether or not that individual w.....

Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 9/22/2014|
Time of year to start ordering wildflower seeds. Have worked really hard over the last 15 years to make a covering over calechi and rock and, at least in some previous years, have had some fabulous bluebonnet displays. That pretty much ended after the drought year so working again to build up some nice side of the driveway displays. Have been spending some time attempting to get the young.....

Microchips being used in sports Omar Gonzales was from Copperas Cove Well, this is creepy. I remember watching a network show a year or two ago where the topic was "Would your children do this" or something. (I think it was NBC). One of the examples was a man giving out ice cream or some kind of goody and getting kids to get into the truck. Does having Jesus on a truck somehow make.....

On Freedom of Speech, Civility and Ayaan Hirsi Ali|
I had not heard of this woman before the other day, although I have heard of the issue of female mutilation, and don't have a settled opinion on whether her viewpoint of Islam is valid (I am trending this way, however). But I very much like that she can express it and that Yale University invited her to do so, despite a lot of pressure from opposition not to allow it. The intro.....

Ruminations of the Easily Amused 9/20/2014 -Donkey Edition|
Haven't written about my donkeys in about a year. I have two wonderful male donkeys, one which is a male of indeterminate age, probably at least 8-10 years, (has had 2 separate owners before me) and the other a young donkey less than 3 years of age. Both are jacks, ungelded. The younger one, the spotted one, has been, ever since we got it, jousting with the older one for domin.....

Yes. This is pandering. Still love it anyway Is Chris Christie the R frontrunner again? you own things! At last, someone in Congress has noticed how “intellectual property rights” are showing up in unexpected places and undermining our settled rights and expectation about the things we buy. Today, Representative Farenthold announced the introduction&.....

Geez. Took Long Enough- NOW the Trinity Toll Road Viewed as a MISTAKE|
I have to admit, when I first read about Dallas going to build a toll road BY THE TRINITY RIVER through a park, I wondered who the fool was profiting from that one? I mean, the Trinity FLOODS! When I first wrote about it in 2007, there already was opposition but presumably the fat cats rode right through that. Unfair Park wrote about one of the guys touting the Trinity Toll Road bef.....

Oh. So THIS is why Ron Washington left the Rangers-Cheated on his wife |
And now we know. Thursday afternoon, Washington made his first public appearance since his resignation. In a brief prepared statement that was long on emotions and short on details, Washington, with his wife standing stage left, said he had made a mistake, been unfaithful to his wife, and let down those closest to him. Here's what I don't get. I'm not quite sure why Ron Washi.....

About the Glen Rose Medical Center Budget- Went from THREE pages to a thick binder|
As a taxpayer, with opinions that are STRICTLY my own, I wondered why the Somervell County Hospital District came up with a tax rate number without basing it on a budget FIRST. Seems like the cart going before the horse, and in fact, the Texas Comptroller site indicates that "Most Taxing Units adopt a tax rate after adopting their budgets". The general meeting before the publi.....

Yeah! It's raining! Hobby Lobby ruling helping out a child labor violator A federal judge has ruled that a member of the Fundamentalist LDS Church does not have to answer questions about child labor violations because of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case. Vergel Steed refused to answer even the most basic questions in a recent deposition, because he.....
