Buddy's gone

I found my friend Big Buddy dead the other day. It real saddens me to loose a friend like Buddy. It looks like coyotes got him trying to make it here, he was short about 800 feet. It just amazes me that a deer as big as Buddy could be taken down by coyotes. I'll miss seeing his smile, going on hikes with him. I've been placing flowers on him and doing a bit of crying.

Throw away the key

Seems anyone can be detained as long as the republicans want now. You could be labeled a terrorist or combatant and be thrown in jail forever along with being tortured. Slowly the constitution is being whittled down where people without the big buck can't put up a fight. The republicans wanted to turn Mexicans into the Jews of Germany and generate hate to get votes. They did that against gays and abortion already. Now every ones a terrorist or a evangelical republican as Bush says. Bush has said numerous time the United States doesn't torture people but they do sub contract it out to other countries. If anyone is a flip flopper Bush has to fall into this category. Everything Bush has done and said is the opposite of what he says he's doing. For a party that suppose to believe in small government that doesn't interfere in your life the republican party is getting in you pants telling you what you can and can't do in the bedroom and with who. Forget the environment your kids will need to wear a gas mask to breath. This idea that the earth is disposable and so is everything on it need to change. If you look at all the large corporations that have failed in the past few years, they all were tied to the republican party and republicans. When the stock market fell apart leading up to the 2000 election, the brokers were all tied to the republican party donating millions. When it came to prosecuting the perpetrators of the stock fraud nothing happened. The brokers walked away with some 100 billion dollars and were only fined 1.2 billion dollars which is a minor cost of doing business. When it comes to an honest republican with morals you will have to search hell to find one.

Frisk has a big brown nose

Frisk has a big brown nose from Bush’s butt cheeks. It’s so funny watching the republicans supporting ideas they don’t believe in and turn to name calling when they can’t support these ideas. It’s always the same, simple catch phases to attack democrates. They have to bring up 9/11 every time they can’t answer any question. If you bring up increasing minimum wages they will say were giving into the terrorist. When will people start seeing that republicans mainly the Bush buddies are for big business and don’t care about the health and welfare of the people that work here in the U.S.  If anything the republicans want to take work place ethics back to the 18th century. They want and have destroyed the unions over years, which made this country great. When it comes to doing something right for the country they have a, “can’t do” attitude. Always saying it’s going to cost too much and send jobs over seas scaring people into keeping things the same. Since 9/11 there hasn’t been any improvement to chemical plants, ports or railroads. They seem to want to get rid of all social program and turning over to evangelical churches and getting rid of the separation of church and state. Iraq wants a religious based government but the U.S says no to that but doesn’t see a religious based country here at home. When it comes to chemical plants using safer chemicals they keep saying it would cost too much but some chemical plants that have changed to safer chemicals are doing just fine and haven’t gone out of business. It just a disregard for the people is an accident happens always arguing the bottom line. Now Bush want to torture terrorist sighting we do not torture people just question them aggressively. The only people that are profiting since Bush came to office are the energy companies and manufactures of war products. I really believe that this war was made to drive the price of oil higher by making the Middle East unstable. Inflation, prices at the pump and your electricity bill all have gone up while the worth of the dollar has gone down. How can anyone say the republicans are doing a good job is beyond me.

Big juicy shot in the knee

Big juicy shot in the knee. What a fun day, another shot in the knee. It went well or I should say the needle slipped right in there. Feels rather good so far. The headache though I don’t think is related has been driving crazy. I think it’s the heat it’s been 99 degrees today. The air hasn’t been the best quality. Could be my eyes they are getting so sensitive to bright light. Then again the air is real bad and my lungs hurt like those day of the all night party’s where I used to smoke a couple packs of cigarettes. Now it’s just pollution blown up the hill from the valley. The injection was a chemical similar to what’s naturally in the knee. It was something, something acid; what ever it is it does the job and make my knee feel much better. Can’t say so much for my back. Lower back is always bad and last night I woke up because of the pain in my mid-back.

No critter fighting

No critter fighting here. Broke up a fight between the hens today. The girls didn’t recognize their sister at first. Her mother trying was picking on the one hen to chase her off and away from the group. She had left the group to raise six chicks, the only hen to have chicks this year. Well the chicks are gone; this has been a real hard year on the turkeys. This hen was one of seven hens. Mom has come back to be with her girls after raising a clutch of chicks last year. The seven hens are two years old and mom is five. I watch last year as the seven hens chased off a black bear. Why they call them black bears when there brown, I don’t know. Anyways, the hen was trying to get through a chain-linked fence and was having problems finding he way through. The other hens heard the cry and all ran over to chase her off. Not sure but it might even been one of mom’s chicks from last year since it looked a bit small. I walked over to the hens and separated them from the one hen. They went down by the house but were looking on to see what this hen wanted. I sat in the pine needles with my back to the one hen listening to her walk back and forth. She flew to the top of the fence and down into the yard and right by me. I could see she knew me because of how close she came to me. We both walked towards the house and the other hens wanted to confront this hen. Soon they were chasing each other around the yard. I started to whistle one I’ve picked up from the turkeys when they are calm. Soon the birds found she wasn’t a threat and became part of the group again. I can only guess that they have to challenge the new bird to find out if she belongs. Turkeys are very family oriented and will stick close to each other. I really find them so very fascinating.

Life imitating art

Life imitating art. I’m an old Monty Python fan and listening to Bush’s speeches this last week reminds me of the infamous parrot sketch. Where Eric Idle is the shop keeper and John Cleese is the customer bringing back his dead parrot. Eric insists that the parrot is only sleeping. John points out that the parrot’s feet have been tacked to the perch so it wouldn’t fall off. Finally John takes the bird out of the cage and bangs it on the counter. Bush in the same way has been pushing the war saying things are great, nothing to worry about, stay the course. Stay the course as the rowboat goes over the waterfall.

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.
