A day in the life

 A day in the life of my friends. Everyone comes by to say hi. Just amazing seeing everyone here every night. The deer come to get apples from the trees.

"You didn't build it."

You didn't build it has been tossed around out of context by the republicans. What the president was talking about was the roads and bridges. The government built those things not private business but you know republicans they need to lie and cheat to win. I just heard the senator from Wyoming say that he could give everyone a Blue Cross card and save money on medicaid. So why doesn't he do that. Talk is cheap and republican talking fast not letting anyone in is their style. So big lie about saying that You didn't build it wasn't anything to do about business it was about government projects something too big for any business to handle.

If republicans want less regulations why don't they start with the bedroom which they want to regulate. People are already forgetting what happened at Wall Street with lax regulations. It's good that republicans base are stupid people that can't remember last week forget several years ago. People forget what Bush did already. Talk about some one spending and putting it on the credit card. Two wars one because of the oil for his buddies. Regan went crazy with spending but then he was crazy. Bush forgot the people at home while making billions for Halliburton and several other war profiteers.

Why do they want a permanent under class of people because a mother has to give birth to a child she can't afford. You don't hear the republicans talking about helping these mothers. They want an assault on planned parenthood. Why do republicans want this poor class of people because they become the foot solders. They don't want people to get ahead. All the best schools are in the areas of the rich people. The poor areas get the hand me down schools. Now it's a push to make money from school by privatizing them. It's not going to make the schools any better just that now the public school are a cash cow for Wall Street. If they follow the Texas model of teaching then kids won't be learning any real history. The kids won't have to learn anything because no ones going to ba watching as they siphon off billions.

It's funny that republicans say they have a plan but never tell anyone what it is. They have said they are going to make the rich richer by cutting their taxes. They say that taxes keep rich people from creating jobs. Under Clinton they raised taxes and growth happened. Republicans talk about Regan cutting taxes but he also raised taxes twice the two highest tax hikes in the history of the country but the republican have selective amnesia.

Republican work the wedge issue and say they are going to fix things but end up spending out of control and leaving the bill for the next president to fix. It's those bumper sticker republicans that get republicans elected. They see one issue and that's it. They don't see the big picture of suppressing voters. they want to repeal woman's right to vote. They want women pregnant pumping out babies for the military because that's the only jobs they can find. Now that the wars left us with damaged solders they are cutting off the support something they played on for the warrior going to war. It's amazing what the dream act says, you can become a citizen if you go into the military or go to school. You won't make it too far going to school without money. They want a permanent state of war for the war profiteers.

It's amazing how the republicans say they want to take back the country well it never went anywhere. The republicans just stopped working is all. It makes a nice slogan though. They are depending on it to impress you because their plan is to take ever last penny you have and give it to the rich.

What a butthead

Someone is thinking with shit for brains. Misspoke my ass your radical republican thinking is wrong. You a bigot and that's all that to it. There is no misspoke, you mis-think. No one wants anyone with views like this in the senate. If this is your limited knowledge of how a body works then it proves that the religious idiots are taking sex education out of the class room because it sure isn't being taught at home with a mind like yours. With a limited mind like yours how can you be making laws that deal with real science. That's why republicans are saying global warming and taking about the science because they believe in religious myths and not science. Toad Akin's is over. Go home because no one wants you. Oh I mis-typed a word, that's a mistake what you said was your oppressive radical right republican mantra. You want to go back to the 17 century and take the woman vote away. Republicans can only win an election by cheating and disenfranchising people.

"Why can't I be called King when we take over the world Mitt?"

Tiny birds take a rest in the heat of the day.

 After working on the sprinkler timer I triggered it to run. Stepping outside I could hear the one line working. Soon there was a bush of tiny birds splashing in the water. They have to be some sort of finch but I maybe wrong. They look only a little bigger then a humming bird. There dozens of birds here and since they were so small they didn't take up much space.  After playing in the sprinkler the birds go up a few inches above the ground and group together.
 The tiny little birds groom on the tiny branch before taking flight. The little birds picked at their wings and rubbed their beaks on the branch. I think the birds saw me watching them but could see I wasn't a treat to them and continued to play in the water. I'll have to see if they show up tomorrow. I've seen other birds playing in the sprinklers before.
Flying off. The little bird takes flight beating it's little wings briskly.

I've looked the birds up in my bird manual but I think the name and pictures are wrong. They are saying that the one bird that looks like this but the size is wrong. The full length can't be more the 3 1/2 inches total. The book has them as 6 to 8 inches long and that's too big. If it was in centimeters then it would be right but it's in inches. They really like the small jet of water spraying out. It's not a very big jet because of the setup I have to spray the roots. I'll have to find a better perch tomorrow. That is if they return. I remember in past years I'd notice a flock of small birds going from tree to tree about 3PM to  4PM every day. Could have been later you just get caught up in work and time flies.

Kicking back out at Bob's

 What's cuter then a baby raccoon? Two baby raccoons. My little friends come up to the porch without mom because they all trust me. Was going through old picture and found a picture of the baby mother when she was a tiny baby. It's a full circle of life.
 You have to wonder what they are thinking as they look at me. This family feels very comfortable being close to me taking pictures. Sure they can fight and they are good fighters but I treat them with kindness and they see that.
 The kids up the walnut tree. Puppy girl came around and they slowly climbed up the tree to be safe. There was another family of raccoons here the mother with her five babies. I don't know what scares them. I see moving fast does make them cringe. They move slow and steady walk with mom. They jump on each other to play. It's cute to see them trot or skip as the playfully run along.
 Is that a cute baby face with it's rounded head. It's still growing. It will grow about four times this size to moms size. The kitties like to come up to the babies and rub against them and purring.  
 It's funny how you can see the subtle differences in them, Even their color are slightly different. They have unique personalities also. Some are shy while some are bolder.
 Some like to be in the center of thing and try to be  in as much contact with the rest of the family.
Safe in the tree but can't wait to come down with all her friends. I've heard that their hands are a hundred times more sensitive then ours. Their claws are above part of there fingers. It's like our fingers except they have nails that are round and pointed. It's like they can handle things just with their fingers but when climbing they curl their fingers to make the claws point towards the tree. I've noticed they have rather big hands and feet. the body weight is somewhat distributed like ares it. They will stand on their back feet with the body balanced over them. It would be like you bend over and use you hands to handle things. You back legs are centered under your body. Theirs are the same and they balance the same. I keep showing them my hands to see if they understand we both have five digits.They just don't have a thumb. I've been noticing a lot of little holes around the area. They dig a hole and let the moisture in the soil pool in the holes so they can get a drink. They are lucky in that I keep the place watered which helps the out. Mom is teaching the babies all these trick of how to be a raccoon. I've seen one raccoon trying to spin the outdoor faucet handle to turn on the water. I've noticed that before. I'd get up in the morning and the water would be running just a little. I was watching their little arms moving under that large coat of skin and hair. Their arms look so much like outs. I'm sure if you check the DNA you'd find out that they are closer to us like primates are close to us.
