Just making sure the blog is still here and operational. It's time to confine my rants here. Facebook is a cloying whore who sucks you in and never lets go.

What? No better news?

The Associated Press
Billy Ray Cyrus says he and his daughter, the "Hannah Montana" actress Miley Cyrus, simply forgot to buckle up for one of their scenes in their new hit movie.
"We got caught up in the moment of filming, and we made a mistake and forgot to buckle our seat belts," the country music star said Wednesday . "Seat belt safety is extremely important."
Consumer Reports magazine had noticed that the Cyruses were not wearing seat belts as they rode in the back of a Range Rover during Disney's "
Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert."
Don Mays, the director of product safety at Consumers Union, said Wednesday, "We applaud the Cyrus family for recognizing that wearing seat belts in rear seats is essential."
The magazine had noted that 65 percent of the 13-to-15-year-olds killed in auto accidents in 2006 were not wearing seat belts. Miley Cyrus is 15.
Telephone calls and e-mails to Disney and to several of Miley Cyrus' representatives were not immediately returned Wednesday.

Shoddy merchandise, Lead filled toys. Poor service. Gas and other price gouging. And the most important thing in the world to Consumer Reports is Hannah didn't put on her SEATBELT????? WFC??? And it was so important her has-been dad had to apologize to the national MEDIA? Just give the damn country to the friggin illegals and Islamofascists and Jerry Springer stars.

OMG where have I been?

Well kids, after a long hiatus, like a bad penny, I'm baaaack! Story short, new grandchild duties, brief illness, work duties, no time. Miss me? Probably not but, bloviate I must. Keeps me from going postal. If you're reading this, let me know. Whether you agree with me or not, make a comment. I love the give and take of ideas. Who knows, your ideas may be bettter than mine. Maybe we will both learn we aren't the only ones with these ideas. Maybe someone will learn something new. Who knows.

So, join the fray. Discuss amongst yourselves. Most importantly, VOTE. As writer Robert Heinlien said, "Sure the game is rigged. But, if you don't play, you can't win. "

Now on to recent Cincinnati events. Here's the first... Weather here is difficult to predict. But a few are consistant. Consistantly WRONG. Why here's one now...

The white death ain't coming. Please take all the milk, eggs and bread back to Kroger. Or make a shirt load of French toast. With or without Karo syrup. But no powdered sugar...Tim might overreact...again.

Support out Troops? Not if we can help it!

* The 2,600 members of the Minnesota National Guard returned recently from extended duty in Iraq, which was reportedly the longest consecutive deployment of any outfit (22 months, counting extensions). However, the Guardsmen still do not qualify for government education benefits. The law allows the benefits only for those on "active duty" at least 730 days, but the Minnesota Guard's orders (as well as some other outfits' orders), were specifically written for "729 days."

Write your congress critter NOW to protest this government weasel action. To specifically limit deployment orders by ONE DAY in order to avoid making educational benefit payments is an unconscionable and heinous act. The uncivil servants who came up with this cost saving idea should be booted from any future government service as a distinct warning to others who would try such a despicable ploy to avoid dispersing benefits to vets. What a great way to promote joining the Guard.

And I think to myself; "What a wonderful world."

This past summer, two capital-murder inmates were put to death after curious court policies failed them. Luther Williams's execution was carried out in Alabama in August after the U.S. Supreme Court's refusal to stop it, despite his plea that the state's lethal injection procedure was unconstitutional. However, one month later, the Court voted to accept for consideration another case questioning the constitutionality of the injection. (Court policy is that four votes are needed to accept a case, but five are required to stay an execution.) In September, just minutes after the Court's lethal- injection case was accepted, lawyers for Michael Richard, who was scheduled to die that evening, rushed to file a stay with the Texas Court of Criminal Appeal and promised delivery by 5:20 p.m. The court clerk responded, "We close at five"; the petition didn't make it; and Richard was executed at 8:23.

Much as I hate to admit it, sometimes bureaucracy can be a beautiful thing.
