Momma deer and her two little ones were here earlier. The babies were born on July 3rd and are as tall as the picnic table now. It still amazes me that they understand a smile. I’m rather good friends with them but mom is still protective.
I got a good picture of an owl the other night but can’t figure out what kind it is. My bird book doesn’t have the best pictures. With all the cameras out there seems like a birder would be taking better pictures in natural posses.
Rats, going to have to run to the store for cat food for the skunks. Today’s Friday and skiers are going to Tahoe for the weekend so traffic is terrible. My back is killing me from being upright for to long today. I made one run into town this morning to get some blood tests done. Nice to see that the nurses still have my picture up on the walls. I’m going to have to bring in a bunch of pictures for Christmas presents. For now I think I’m going to lay on the heating pad and see if I can reduce the pain. Things are really getting painful to a point were you just hate every second. The pain pill don’t give you much relief either. I’m scheduled for a cortisone shot next month. I hope that helps a little, anything is better then being able to only stand for maybe two hours a day.

This goes to show everyone that looses can become president if they have enough money behind them.

They stopped using DDT here in the states but third world countries that still use it and we import their foods. We know that DDT causes breast cancer along with other problems in humans and wild life. It's the bottom line that corporations are thinking of and not people’s health.Bush just signed a new bill to let chemical producer pump out fur time more pollution while restricting the information about what they are pumpingout. Shows me that this president doesn't care about people. He started a war that he can't finish. He has no plan for the future but how much money his friends can make before the hammer comes down. It's good to know that Bush will go down in history and the lousiest president ever.

For years kings have bent the rules killing off others that challenged them and their authority. For some reason some people who I think are criminally insane have been the rulers of society. They only did things to help out their kingdoms but not the people of the kingdoms. They made up rules to keep them in power like saying it’s in there blood line that make them king when they were a bunch of inbreed defects perpetuating the recessive defects in your gene pool and your family line. When you have the church on your side you can change thing like breeding with your cousin or sister or face being killed apposing the leaders.
When people talk about evolution it’s not just what’s happen in the past few years but over millions of years. Science doesn’t look at the over all package of who you are today but the evolution of the skeleton structure. How muscles are attached to bone and when that changed. When say a double pivot joint first appeared in the time line of life and that all animals after then have that same features.
One thing about science it deals with logic and not myths. You can always improve ideas. You don’t have to sit there with the same old crap. It’s an ever changing book advancing human knowledge.

Inflation only helps the rich while keeping the poor, poor. It’s the story of the human race to oppress the masses so a few can live this better then life. Rich people have this need for power like an insanity. Think they call that one or two of those deadly sins.
It would be nice to see people that worked for the betterment of mankind and not the betterment of one or two greedy people.

I believe that people call animals stupid because the animals might take a none violent approach to life. My turkey friends are pacifist like the deer. The skunks might fight between groups but nothing is a fight to the death.
I had a couple possums come by last night along with my skunks. There was a stray kitty that came up on the porch that lives in the park. He grabbed a small piece of chicken. For the most part they can support themselves but on cold foul weather days like it has been they turn to me for help. Since they are fellow mammals I feel it’s my duty to help all mammals. The only difference between them and me is 2% of DNA. They are 98% the same as me so it make them like the Native Americans my brothers and sisters.

Rumsfeld is comparing terrorist and the war in Iraq to fighting Nazi’s in World War II. Only problem with that scenario, it only took five year to defeat the Germans.
To me it seems if your going to fight a war you would put all efforts into fighting the war and not sub it out to private company friends where you stand to make a lot of money having it last longer where equipment is constantly being replaced.
I don’t know if this is there strategy, letting the country go into civil war and the country destroys itself where you pick up the pieces down the road after many of the people in Iraq have killed each other.

Isn’t that how it works, use other peoples money and use other people to get what we call rich. Then when you think about the rich are only selling paper telling you it’s worth a lot. Nothing to back up the paper like metals or products they just tell you this is worth it. Isn’t that the ultimate? Since Bush was appointed to office, the dollar has been constantly dropping in value. It’s not at half but around 3/5 of what it once was worth in the year 2000. Well, that’ll keep those poor people in line.
Republicans are trying to fight the green house gas cap here in California saying it’s going to cost jobs and cost the state billions. This is the same thing they said about raising the minimum wage, that all the jobs would move out of the states. It’s funny how the first thing a republican sees is the bottom line and not the health of the people of the state of California. As it is, 20% of the light which is destine to hit the surface of the earth doesn’t make it because of the amount of particulate in the air. For a state that makes a large portion of its income with farming this is a serious problem if you can’t grow plants.
There’s one thing you can count on by republican, anything they are saying while campaigning is a lie. They are only concerned about their wealth and not the good of the country unless it helps their wealth.

Bush says he won’t kill embryos but he will send people off to war to drive the price of oil higher so his friends can make billions at the expense of the American people.
It’s so amazing that religious zealots never see the things they are doing wrong. They will destroy the earth saying it’s Gods work they are doing. They talk about marriage and the family, how many of these families last more then a couple years in the red states. Seems they have more divorces then the blue states.
What I don’t get is someone that read the bible doesn’t mean you’re a scientist. Reminds me of someone that wanted to become a programmer but was reading the bible for his direction, never picking up the programming manual.
All through history any mystery need to be blamed on some one or something because they didn’t know any better. Science is science and facts are facts you can’t change that or make it into some sort of there after. If you want to believe, believe but don’t make other have to follow you down your road, it my be the wrong one.

I talked the stray skunk out from under the house. Since he didn't know his way he followed my voice to the entrance. He's one of the guys that lives on the north end of the property.
No worries, smell will clear up and everyone's safe.

There was a show on PBS the other day with the question why are the seals of the coast dieing? I didn't have to think long, it's that lack of animals up stream not filtering the water properly that is causing the down stream problems. Any time the balance of the eco system becomes upset it tries to compensate to get it back on course.
It’s the same with global warming; the earth wants to keep itself in a balance but that balance doesn’t work out on some people balance sheet. What a trade off, life on earth or lots of money for a short period of time. I guess it always boils down to the haves and the have-nots’. Some one always pushing some sort of idealism that may look good for now but in the long run leads to wars, loss of cultures, loss of people. What do you tell your tribe, “Sorry, we made a bad deal many years ago and have to live with it, whether you like it or not.”

As would be said on the playground, he’s a big boy let him fight his own battle, the battle he started. Just because one side is loosing should be like looking at a puppy and saying “he’s so cute” we need to stop this. What Hezbollah is doing is just like the Germans did in World War II with the indiscriminate bombing of London. We can’t separate the two groups of people in Lebanon, the complacent and the terrorist. They are both guilty because they live in one sovereign country. Lebanon needs to deal with criminals within its country if they don’t want other countries attacking them.
Saturday, July 15, 2006
Lebanon is asking the U.N. to get some sort of ceasefire going while the terrorist group declares war on Israel and shot 200 rockets into Israel. It might be a good idea for the U.N. to get involved round up these terrorist and detain them forever so they won’t cause anyone anymore problems. It looks like Israel will be doing that for the world. Call it trash removal.
Perspective: I rented an apartment form a woman, Anadorous, who lived in Germany through World War II. She asked me why did the bomb Dresden. I had to point out the amount of bombs that Germany dropped on London. That Germany invaded the neighboring countries. The million of people the Germans killed. The Nazi death camp and slave labor. I also told her about my father who was shot down and spent 3 ½ years in a Luftstolog getting tortured. The 600 miles that he was forced to walk in the middle of winter on a death march. She looked at me and asked, “Why did they bomb Dresden.” “I never saw any death camps.” “My brother was working for the SS and never saw any of this.” Then I reminder her of what I just said and she said, “We were at war” like it was okay but we shouldn’t have bombed any part of Germany.
Moral of the story, they didn’t learn a lesson the first time and needed to be brought to there knees. A total defeated Germany was necessary so they would do it again. The same thing needs to be done in the Middle East so it won’t happen again. Until these groups that have such a twisted view of the world because they live in a country that messed up because of their government are removed there will always be problems.

There was a Chris Carter script that had the CIA attacking the trade center with a remote control 747. Of course the heros save the day at the last minute. Sort of make you wonder why this adminastration Demoted Richard Clarke before 9/11 after warning this adminastration several time about Bin and his boys. Bush's quote, "I don't want to hear any more about terrorist. How can we invade Iraq. This was before 9/11 and can be fact checked in O'Neil's book and Clarks book.
The man that knew the most about AlQeada from the FBI Frank Clark was driven out of service only to die in the trade center on his first day at work doing security. The night before he told a former worker that he felt something big was going to happen by this group.
Church services that is more Hollywood entertainment then church service. It's just my observation but it seems they don't have much substance and more entertainment. One thing I've noticed is the repeating of the same words. This church fill it in is the best over and over. It's a form of brain washing. In a news report I've seen they say the "preachers" act in a way of mass hypnosis. The drama really gets me. What I hate is they take these simple minds and turn them into voters with out any thought. The church tell them what and who to vote for. There should be a law against this, oh wait there is, it's called a separation of church and state. This take over is a republican ploy for power and nothing else. The poor people, those believers with limited mental faculties fall into the trans of the cult. It's not a church anymore when the church take away your ability to think and condemns everyone else who doesn't think like they do. Listening to them talk is so automaton like and they never knew what hit them. Soon the religious right will be if they aren't already as bad as the radical Muslims. Wait, we invaded a country over so called values and ideas that doesn't sound to peaceful.

The other day I watched a quail chasing a blue jay for getting to close to his woman. The one jay with the broken beak is still going strong. Still having problems picking up grain and seeds but he’s still alive. I put small pile of scratch out so it would be easier for him to eat. His upper beak is broken half way down.
The blackberries are green and plenty. There are still blossoms that the bees are getting nectar from and pollinating. Maybe a good year to make blackberry preserves. It’s to bad they have so many spines because they tear me up.
Well it’s Sunday, time to listen to Prairie Home Companion, sit at the computer looking out the front door watching the wild life drinking coffee, French roast. What a great way to reflect what has happened this week, this month or my whole life. I try not to think to much but enjoy the moment.

So what does the planet have in store for this up coming event? Say nothing and let the rich people hide out in some under ground cavern somewhere. There are a few of those left over from the cold war. Will the places that are safe be sold to the highest bidders?
The one thing I see that Hollywood got wrong in the movie was the meteor was traveling to slow in the earth atmosphere. When you can see it, it will be to late to run and hide so get some good seat if you want to watch. They did get the tidal wave somewhat right, a little slow but the volume was about right. Knowing the people in power now would look at this up coming event as a way of getting property at a cheap cost after impact. I’m not saying all republicans are greedy just 99.99% of them are.

I’ve heard it all. “If you raise the minimum wage you won’t help people to get out of poverty” according to a republican congressman. If they weren’t paid so little they might be able to get out of poverty. It doesn’t take much smarts I agree to flip a burger but I wouldn’t want a disgruntled employee doing things to the customer’s food. The congress gave itself 31,000 dollar raises over the past ten years. Inflation is at an all time high but that doesn’t find its way into the little people pockets. Seems inflation is a way of keeping people poor. Sure you get wages but it never keep up with inflation compared to the ratio of the extremely rich. The rich don’t gave to do anything but there worth more in time while a person work by the hours works until he dies.

I heard some interesting stats. When the war started we paid the families $200 for those oopses that the military made by killing civilians. First year cost, 5 million dollars. This last year we paid 20 million to civilians at $200 per family, which works out to 100,000 people the same amount of people Saddam killed over 30 years.
The story goes like this, weapons of mass destruction and Bin’s group in Iraq. Then it was for regime change. Then it was to make a democratic country. Today there is no reason just that we will be there until hell freezes over. You get that impression by the permanent bases they are building.
Mean while back here the health care issue, wages, job and a stable dollar is the concern of the people. So many republican business are claming bankruptcy to get out of paying the peoples retirement and breaking the unions, all done for the stockholder dividends. Yes greed is driving the Republican Party with no regards to the health of the country.
After 9/11 Bush changed the way unemployed people are counted. When your benefits finish so do you as far as getting counted. This makes a real nice number but doesn’t represent what is really happening to the working class people.
One thing I noticed is the oil shortage is only happening in the United States all in a quest for Exxon to drill for oil in Alaska. The only way to solve this extortion would be for every country to nationalize their oil fields where each country would pay privet companies to drill for oil. After the hole is drilled there isn’t much work to be done, just collect the oil and sell it. The futures market need to be removed from the world along with hedge fund. Both seem to be a problem that is causing high prices and fuel inflation. Maybe one day people would work to better the world instead of bettering just themselves.

Rove gets off again. Karl Rove gets away with his personal assault on others with his mud slinging. To get away with treason because your friend the president cuts you a break is just wrong. To me I would see a revenge by the organization that he used as a political toy would be out of the question. Karl has gotten away with creating to many lies and destroying to many people. Karma and Wicken both say that things come back in the powers of three so maybe Karl will die some sort of long and painful death. Even as he cries out for some one to kill him because he’s in so much pain his religious right will say no you can’t do that.
Someone outted the CIA agent, which is treason. Someone had to come up with the idea to discredit Joe Wilson. And after everything is done someone caused a CIA agent cover to be blown. Someone needs to pay for this but in this administration no one does anything wrong even lying about reasons for going to war.
I don’t know how long a country can exist when they keep lying to the people of the country. Why do other people of the world hate us it’s because of the lies of the republicans. Why people can’t see how they are making the country into a fascist state. This administration keeps saying things are going great and the war on terrorism is just a quest for oil. If Iraq can’t get it together and sell us oil then we will have to take over the country that puts out oil and take that part over.
When a country is based on lies its time for a change. Whether it’s a new country or what it’s time for a change.
Today’s debates on the hill patting each other on the back instead of doing real work but only following Karl Rove’s speaking points where nothing gets done. The republicans have no real policies but to scare people to voting for some thing they know nothing about. The only ideas they have is to attack the demarcates. In the eye of the republicans if they stop gay marriage then it will stop terrorism. The republican party would want you to believe that without being Christian that you are some sort of sinner when they take bribes. Make people loose their homes. Take over businesses and send the work over seas. Destroy the unions. Make electronic voting machines to keep the republicans in power. Go to war to make your friends in the oil business rich. I see the republicans are for big business just as they have been for years. Getting people to invest in the stock market only to have the market fail again like they did once before.
I have never meet a honest republican who hasn’t wanted to have nothing more then free labor and no taxes. If the republicans keep doing what they are doing our country will go bankrupt by 2010. Then the big businesses that are world companies and don’t care that they destroyed a country will go on. What the right keeps forgetting is that the meek will rule the world and I don’t see big business fitting it to that category.

I watched a baby last night taking on a large skunk. The big skunk just ignored the little guy but the little guy didn't give up he kept stomping his front feet to scare off the other skunk. I'm real supprised that skunks like salads with avacodo and thousand island dressing.
It’s been over a decade since the republicans took over and the only thing I’ve seen is the country going down the hill to line the pockets of the republicans. Every thing they have said they were going to do has failed. Bush said he wasn’t going to do any country building but we are stuck in Iraq with no end in sight.
The republicans keep telling you that social security is bad and that you need to invest in the stock market. Last time the republicans were in power and said the same thing we had the great depression.
I heard a republican leader say he was bull headed and I think that means even if we are wrong we will still fight for it. The Republican Party is for big business and always has been. To say they are compassionate is a play on words because they are only concerned with getting richer and leaving the people of the United States in the dirt fending for themselves.
The religious right, although rather narrow minded is finally seeing that the Republican Party has only used them to get to power. Because they are a bit slow it will take longer for some to see the light although a dim one.
It amazes me that none of the republican leader has served in any war except John McCain. Which make me wonder why they are so quick to go to war and send all those democratic kids to there death without flinching.
It was unions that gave people a better life and built this country now the republicans want cheap labor from south of the boarder leaving citizens hanging. After 9/11 when unemployment was so high a way to fix it was to change how you counted the unemployed. When you unemployment ran out then you didn’t count or matter.
When Richard Clark warned Bush and the administration about terrorist Bush said he didn’t want to hear any more of it. The reason they didn’t care is they used the terrorist attack for a reason to invade Iraq. Even Paul O’Neil said the administration wanted to invade Iraq as soon as they got in office.
If it weren’t for the Supreme Court and Diebold Bush would not be in office. When an executive from Diebold company said he was going to make sure Bush was re-elected this should have been a warning sign that Diebold wasn’t playing fair.
If you believe the republican there is no problem with green house gases. They even made a commercial saying CO2 is a natural gas and it good. This show me that they don’t care if are children can breath. That they will have a place that is safe to live without having a lake catch fire or you skin fall off because the land you live on is polluted. Greed is what is driving the Republican Party not caring what will happen in a few years down the road. It’s just that we have oil people who want to sell oil and don’t care about the out come.

There's 7 skunks in this picture. Mom and Dad stay with the kids until they are as big as mom and dad. They have been hiding the last couple night but the cat food is out there for them.
You know what's worse then cats mating in your yard, bobcats mating in your yard.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Dick Chaney’s energy plan was to take Iraqi oil. In Paul O’Neil’s book he put the map dividing up Iraq for the oil companies. This was as soon as they came to power and don’t confuse that fact they were never elected. That was money and power can do place an un-elected person into the presidency. This is going to go down as the lowest point in the United States history.
As I remember a book about Nostrodomous’s forecast for the future, a religious president gets into a war but the rest of the world disagreed with this. The rest of the world unites to defeat this religious zealot and destroyed this country. Sending this country back to the Stone Age.

Forest FloorSun and lots of it. It's been in the 80's for the last couple
days. Sure beats the excess rain. The bear was back last night. I was
working at the computer when the bear came on the porch. It's so big, make
me look like a tooth pick.
I see the Abermoff scandal is reaching to El Dorodo county. Doolittle gets a
bribe from Abermoff to keep the Indian casino out. Even though the Indian
tribe paid for roads which were never built. I think they were run off
because of the people in Tahoe felt threatened by the little casino. The
city of Placerville spent over 2 million to defeat the Indian casino. I
don't understand how it was built if they didn't want the casino there.
Seems like the Indians did everything by the book and got all the permits
before they started putting the screws to the Indians. Myself, I think we
should be paying them rent for using their land.

Went out to feed the squirrels this morning. I bought a bag of sunflower seeds yesterday. Now, the bins gone. A lap around the house and can't fined it. I came back in the house to get some shoes on and wash my foot off after stepping in a "turkey surprise." Not ready for dilemmas this early in the morning. Overcast and cool out right now as I start my search for the missing bin. Squirrels and Big Bird are looking at me asking, "where's my food." I found the bin up the hill from the house, it was that bear again. Inspecting the bin I notice the teeth marks, find puncture through this heavy plastic. So it's not much security but I can't bite through it. Simply amazing, I didn't hear a thing last night again like last week or the week before. The bear is walking in when ever it wants, something logical about that statement. Since the bear didn't eat much he might have just left since the neighbors dogs been barking all morning which isn't uncommon. The bear could have saw me as I walked around the house and took his leave. I can't be made at the bear it's just hungry and want to eat. Funny how I didn't see any tracks or hear any noise.

Living in the Sierra's always has surprises with the weather. It's not bad here at the 2000 foot level but on top is another story. Weather people said on top of the hill it's getting 4 feet of snow for every storm. People back east think they know what snow is but unless you've seen 20 feet of pack you never seen nothing. Had two avalanches this week off Highway 50 on the way to Tahoe. I could use more grain for the critter, I went through 80 pound today. I'm so amazed at people who call themselves hunters, they know so little about the animals they hunt. My little fur balls have been here all night. Why can I walk up to animals and animals run away from other people. There are two visiting skunks and they don't get along with my skunks to well. Noticed one thing I never knew before about skunks, each one has a distinct odor. Well enough looking outside time to sleep. Tomorrow is going to be a busy day picking up branches that feel over night. Have to eat a lot of calories if I'm going to be outside.

All right night shift is taken care of now it’s time to take care of me. Chicken tonight, so it looks like my little stinkers are going to eat good too. So goes my nice clean pants. I thought they would have stayed clean more then a couple hours.
I’ve noticed that the deer during this wild weather have a harder time of finding their way. I’ve seen them stumble or at least heard them stumble when it was real dark without any starlight.
I was watching the noon news to see what the weather was going to be like then a reporter in P’ville said it was a blizzard here. Of course it was only a mild snow which just go me. I’ve been in blizzards and this is no blizzard. I even was cross country skiing in a winter blizzard on the east side of the sierra’s by mammoth mountain. Then I knew if I stopped for to long I’d die and wouldn’t be found until the spring thaw. I wish they would give these news readers a yard stick to give accurate measurement because 2 inches turns into a foot. One foot turns into three feet. Sixty mile an hour wind gusts turns into hurricane force winds. I bet when they go fishing they catch hundred pound fish on 10 pound test line and the fish is described as 10 feet long when it’s a minnow.
News Hours on.
I’m going to have to remind the phone people to finish what they started because my phone hasn’t worked for a week now. So far since November I’ve had about 3 weeks of service. What gets me is the phone company thinks I need to pay for service I don’t get. Isn’t that just like a corperation.
March 2, 2006 snowed last night. It’s news time and the snows almost melted it’s in patches here and there. I took a cold walk around and found several large branches that broke last night from the weight of the snow. Two willow trees lost three large branches that were budding. The squirrels and little birds were eating all day. I saw some young squirrels I haven’t seen before. They could have sat in the palm of my hand. Life’s hard in the forest. I think I found the rest of the body of the Cooper Hawk. I think the cold weather did him in, I’m going to miss seeing him flying around here. The creek is flowing rather good and so are the hills. I haven’t been down the hill to see where my creek joints the other creek yet but I’m sure it’s really moving. It’s to bad that the snow is coming in spring and not winter. Now the snow pack is melting with the rain so the snow doesn’t get to soak into the ground. From what I’ve heard that this area used to get a couple feet of snow that would stay through the winter. Want to hear a good joke? People are buying $500,000 dollar houses below sea level in the Sacramento delta.
Doesn’t look like I need to worry about snow from this next storm but the weather people don’t read it right some times, you never know.
Saw the “flicker” today again, three days in a row. Very aggressive when looking for bugs, no loose piece of bark left unturned.
I need to get outside, feed the birds and squirrels, turn the antenna around, get cat food and get ready for tonight “24.” Not before I have more coffee. Just not ready to get in the cold damp air, my bones are telling me not to.
Okay, got a lot done. Dinner??? What to do… Backs doing it to me having a lot of pain standing. News, the evening break, time to lie down and make it count.
Feeling rather cold in the house. Pledge break on News Hour.
One hour before “24,” deer are feed. skunks are feed.
Chicken tonight; guess who’s getting the scraps. All three guys are here checking out the new cat food. They also look like they better eat because something bad is coming.
Got about an hour of phone service yesterday.
Was looking at the deer yesterday. Two youngsters a dark one and a tan one both male. As I looked out the door at them I was reminded of Hank Hill’s neighbor Lu talking to hank but it was the deer talking to each other. The little brown deer kept saying to the other deer, “You hillbilly deer, look, look it’s human.” Tan deer, “relax dude Bob’s cool.” I found out there is two type of deer, black tail and mule deer.
Skunk fight, break up all sore of wild things. Only rules here no fighting or eating your neighbor.
No snow yet so I don’t think there will be any. I saw an area up the mountain on TV and it had fog. So moistures in the air and it’s about freezing.
News has past and now for CBS’s new show. Smells like a skunk passed gas and it lit on fire. Sort of smells like burning plastic, the skunks don’t even like it. Had a couple stray skunks coming over along with the cat. Was hoping to see the raccoon.
Oh darn it’s so cold in and out of the house. Just have that low-pressure type feeling and the start of a headache. Weather people said it might snow. I’m in for the night no more going out t o night. Did laundry today nothing like the feel of warm cloths.
I’ve noticed that the turkeys are separated by age with the youngest in the center. Then it’s the mothers older young males then the old males. There’s one young squirrels rocketing around the trees, I hope he’s not lost. This little one has just left the nest in the past couple days.
Getting dark now and the deer are coming in along with the storm winds.
Phone just came one. Try e-mail.

Tonight I sat outside with the deer for about an hour. Even challenged the deer with the antlers because he was being a bonehead. One of the little girls seemed to be getting picked on by everyone. I was sitting down and she came over by me, I think she felt safe. She sure looked happy and seems to perk up being there. I don’t mind them eating the forest because I won’t. Summer is great for them I have all sort of fruit for them. I think going out with a deer and getting apple out of the tree for him is the coolest thing ever. Having a deer follow you or you follow them it show me how they can reason. The thing that amazes me the most is the family that they have. I can tell that the herd has three type of main marking. When I first moved here, they were just a deer, I could tell anything about them. Now I can see a foot and tell which deer it is.
I came in when I saw the first skunk sniffing along. I had a couple of George Clinton’s family show up. Not George himself if their tails, it looks like George Clinton hair. Pooh-key the medium sized skunk really was chewed up. He’s got a bald spot and teeth marks. The teeth are spread rather far apart so I know it wasn’t another skunk. Stinkers run off when he sees any other skunks. Seems everyone want to bit on him. The raccoon just butts in and eats the cat food without to much worry.
It still amazes me when your nice to any animal they will be nice to you. Sure I have that alpha male type personality and that doesn’t seem to matter to much. Even the turkey, squirrels, skunks, raccoons all seem to turn out to be very friendly They don’t seem to be wild at all even though they are.

Well dinner calls. Time to wake up. COFFEE!!! Nice warm coffee.
Had a good down pour of hale while the phone guy was here fixing my phone. Yes it works again. I can’t believe it. There water and I can use the phone. Well it’s raining, no it’s snowing it’s… the sky is falling and the ground is turning white.
Feels good to put on “the boots.” I can only were these in real cold wet weather or a long distance hick up the side of a big rock. Amazing, I bought these boots in 1972 and still haven’t wore out the soles.
I’m fascinated at the little birds feeding. They look a little rounder and puffed up with the cold. My turkeys took off. I think they are under trees somewhere. Mrs. Squirrel is hunting for seeds on the picnic table. She scraped the snow off to revile the sunflower seeds. There’s another squirrel coming down the tree. It sure takes the squirrels a long time to see if things are safe.
Snowing again too warm to stick right now. Well spoke to fast here come the fluffy chunks of snow. It’s not a white out just soft clumps of snow gently falling.
Well Rummy’s on Charley Rose. I’m going to have to watch this to see all the lies. Besides my back is killing me and I need to lay down for a bit.

The skunks were here until I stepped outside. I think Clinton damaged one of his eyes in that fight the other night. Out of all the stuff they eat sunflower seeds have to be their favorite. Chicken is always good then it’s the cat food. Feeding them by hand had to be the biggest kick. I don’t recommend that to just anyone unless you have a rap or with them. Well Clinton’s back having more cat food.
The raccoon family seems to disappear. Not sure if they’re sleeping the winter away. I wonder where they do go when they are all together. Do they have some sort of home base?
I spoke to soon, one of the kids are here. I don’t see it as them taking food from the raccoon but Clinton did. He had his tail in the air and the gland was puckered. Only a little stink and it was just in the air to scare the raccoon. When I open the door to break up the confrontation both guys ran off. The raccoon just went to the shadows always look to where the food was. I went to the bin of the cat food was and got a can full. Then walk down to the walk where the raccoon was watching me. I poured out the food and walked back on the porch. The little bandit came up the food by the time I was closing the door to go inside.

In Iran the Bush white house is now saying they are making nuclear bombs but the Iranians are saying it just power research. Who are we going to believe, Bush who took us to war over weapons that weren’t there, or the Iranians who don’t want to burn oil in power plants to prevent green house gasses?
Is this a republican big business maneuver to invade Iran for their oil? From the impression I’m getting from all the spending on homeland security nothing has really been done to make this country safer. The only people making out are the people making war goods. Iraq has turned into the money pit with no end in sight.
When the president says the economy is doing great then why does he have to cut social services to balance the budget, which isn’t balanced at all. Why is he keep giving the rich tax breaks, saying it’s going to stimulate the economy. He just said the economy was great then why does it need more stimulation at the cost of the poor. Bush said he would repair New Orleans at any cost but now the money has been cut off. He’s a president that couldn’t keep his word if his life depended on it. He said he’s a Christian and wants to protect unborn babies but kills the mothers carrying the babies. It’s okay to kill innocent people in a war but it not okay for a woman to make her own decision. Tom Delay said after the Patriot Act was pasted, “we have been working on this bill for 10 years.” So that means that the republicans were planning to pass this act to reduce the amount of rights Americans have without the terrorist threat.
Is this terrorist problem a version of McCarthyism? Did the republicans make up the idea that Americans would support this or any administration because of the terrorist threat? Has anyone come up with the conclusion that this administration let the terrorist strike New York just to find a way to invade Iraq? I believe Dr. Rice prevented important information from getting to the president so the terrorist would complete their missions. This would outrage the American public and let the republicans do what every they wanted including starting a war or wars.
There’s nothing like a administration that does anything it wants without checks and balances. It makes this country no better then the tyrants we are fighting. Fascism comes in all forms. After 9/11 everything the republicans have wanted to do has been put into this category of impending doom. If you don’t do this we are doomed. If you don’t fix Social Security the way I want the terrorist are going to get you. If you don’t drill in Alaska the terrorist will get you. There aren’t to many things that the president has said that are true. The people of the United States have been led around like a mob trying to get every terrorist under every rock. Bush inherited the recession caused by his friends and campaign contributors in the stock market that took the American public for a 7.4 trillion dollar ride. Doesn’t that just make you want to invest to save social security?
