I don't really have anything specific to talk about, but there are a few things going around in my mind. So, I think I'll just ramble for a bit today.

First off on the new campaigns for SQ744, I'm still calling bullshit. One sides is saying that passing sq744 will do this, and do that, release these, and squish that. The other is saying if we cut the bs spending, and overinflated bonus's, and some other crap that we'll have plenty of funding. Well, I don't know about you, bu I believe that both sides are full of shit. On one hand if it gets passed, we won't release any prisoners or close any prisons, no government jobs will be lost, no state troopers will be laid off, our roads and bridges won't get any less attention that they do now, (They can't get any less) and DHS will not lose any more funding than they normally would. Nor will any slush funding be slashes, or any benefits of our congressmen, or any overspending will be addressed, non of the things mentioned by either side will happen, these are the same tactics used during the lottery campaign. Vote for the lottery and our crime rate will go up, vote against it and our kids won't get the funding they need in schools. NEITHER happened. And, the same will happen in this case, if sq744 gets passed our schools won't get any better funding, and no slush funds will get cut.

On another note, one of my daughters asked us for a pair of high heels. Personally I don't think a girl should be wearing high hells, or daisy dukes, low rise jeans, hip huggers, skinny jeans, bikinis, short shorts/skirts, garter belts, a teddy, or anything like that. And by girl I'm talking about any one under the age of eighteen, untill the government recognizes adulthood. I'll stick with the heels this time. What is the two main purposes of high heels? One to make your legs look longer, Two to raise and pop your ass out. My ten and twelve year old daughters don't need to have longer looking legs, nor a firmer rounder looking ass. Period.

Ridin' In The Wind

As Autumn sets in and Winter draws nearer, and we see less time on the pavement on our bikes. You stop and think about the miles and memories you've put under them old tires. Some bad, most good hopefully. And, you may be thinking about one last long haul before garaging her up for the winter, some will be thinking about, or already have gotten their cold weather gear out for the season. Personally, I plan on making the trip out to Talihina, and taking in Highway 1, or Talimena Drive. Planned on going last year, but the slight mishap of laying my bike over around the first of September, and a majorly sprained ankle prevented me from going. So, I plan on hobbling my gimp ass over to my bike one set of days off, and heading that way.

The basic route I plan to take. No guarantees though.

How much do you sin.

Yea, I know it's Monday. This was supposed to be posted yesterday, but I wasn't done with it, so I posted today's post yesterday.

How much do you sin? Do you sin more than your neighbour? More than me? Is it less of a sin because you don't do it as much, or as often? Or is stealing 5 bucks better that ten, or a few million? Is killing a Nun worse than a vagrant?

It says in the Bible that all sin is the same, and the punishment is the same. From lying to murder to taking the Lords name in vain. All sin is the same in the eyes of the Lord. The book of James explains this pretty well.

Spilling en Americka Tuday

Now this is a problem that is sometimes funny when you read it, but is never really funny in real life. I feel sadness when I read a post and the person can not spell or doesn't know the correct words to use.

I just sold my truck, it was never for sell. It was for sale for a time, and I was more than willing to sell it. And, never was I out to sail it.

Now I understand some words are hard to spell, and I do have trouble with some of them. But, I'm not talking about big spelling bee type words. The ones that bother me are the simple ones, like sell, sale, sail; type; are,or, our; know, no, now; stuff like this. It's sad and shows the quality of our learning in these United States. And, the prognosis is not good. And, the bad part of it is, every computer I've been on has some kind of spell check. And, there are also online dictionaries. Educate yourselves America.

It's time to stand against bullying.

While watching a recorded episode of Dr. Phil about bullying. I got to thinking about the current trend in the news lately, kids killing themselves, parents transferring their kids schools, and other bullshit of the like. This is a big problem in America now, and in reality it extends further than just bullies, but that's a later post.

Bullies have been around since... about forever, really. We dealt with bullies in school, as did our parents and their parents, and so on and so fourth. But, it had become a culture of inaction, yea when I was in school, kids would pick on other kids, and fights would ensue. But, there was line that wasn't crossed, you may hear one kid make fun of another's clothes, or his hairstyle, or even sexuality, but it was never a constant occurrence, they didn't follow the kid around school, shit like that. And, a lot of the time the offender ended up buying the offended a Coke later, while the offended tutored the offender in math.

Now you have the other kind of bully, hard home life, usually poor as dirt, no real parents to speak of. And, I hate to call this kid a bully, but that's what they are. Even though, they're not doing it out of jealousy, or to be popular, or for any other real reason than they're just pissed off at you and the world, and just want to fight and beat the shit of someone.

The bad part is the latter is far more lost than the former. But, the good part is both can be dealt with in the same way. Just like it was when I was in school. At my school, if you were a bully and took things too far, you got told about it, and most likely showed, and taught a lesson. Though not always usually someone would stand up and step forward to challenge your actions. And, that is what is needed now, if you see someone bullying someone, get up and stand up for that kid just like he was your brother or sister. Or stand up for him as you would stand up for yourself. You can take anybody one this planet, and I'll use some examples of what I'm talking about here... Randy Coture, The Undertaker, Brock Lesner, any of them may be able to whup my ass, and maybe even two or three people at once, but they can't take ten. And, in the case of a bully, if one stands up to them, they most likely will back down. You have to let them know it will not be tolerated. And, the more that stand against a bully or bullies, the more effective you will be.

We need to quit catering to the ones who hurt us. Yes they need help, and I do feel sorry for the lad who has no parents, but he needs to know first and foremost that him beating up another kid will not be tolerated. Nor, will it be overlooked and not punished, just because he's got a bad home life. Same goes for the popular kid who does it to gain popularity. You should not, gain by making others suffer.

Our school spending

Wasn't the lottery here in Oklahoma suppose to cut out any additional taxes, or spending by the state and local governments for schools? I believe that was one of the major selling points of the lottery here in Oklahoma. I do agree that we should be spending just as much on our kids as any other state in the Union. But, this proposal doesn't show how it's going to be funded, and states that we will bring our per child spending up to the same level as surrounding states. I disagree with sq744. We need to find a way to get our school systems up to par without major tax increases or cutbacks in other areas.

Death On The Border

This is muy messed up, if ya ask me. I'm sure you've heard about the shooting in Texas by the Mexican pirates by now. Granted they were told to say on our side of the poles, and not go into the Mexican waters of Falcon Lake. So I don't have much sympathy for the couple, but the rest of the family should be able to bury their son/brother/cousin. It was a bad thing that happened to David, but they were warned not to cross the border. I do believe that his body should be brought home for a proper burial. And, if Mexico will not help in the search for his body, we should cross that line and look for it ourselves. I say to hell with international bullshit, cross the damm border and find the guy that got shot, and shoot any who oppose!

Forgiveness and prayer.

But who prays for Satan? Who in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most, our one fellow and brother who most needed a friend yet had not a single one, the one sinner among us all who had the highest and clearest right to every Christian's daily and nightly prayers, for the plain and unassailable reason that his was the first and greatest need, he being among sinners the supremest? - Mark Twain

It is preached in the Bible to be able to forgive is above all you can to to gain favor with the Lord. Forgive without expectation, without reward and you shall be saved. You ask for forgiveness for your sins and you shall be forgiven and granted eternal life in Heaven with the Lord. You are to pray for people less fortunate than you. Pray for people that need to find the light, the path, the way, the Word of God. Pray for your enemies, forgive your enemies, harbor no hate towards any soul. This is what it says in the Bible, forgive those who have sinned against you and you will be forgiven by God.

Who do you pray for, who do you need to forgive today, tomorrow? I have forgiven all who have done me wrong, and I hold no ill will toward them, eventhough I'd just as soon not have them in my life, or have cut them out of it completely. But, I wish them the best in their lives and adventures.

Most of all, I pray for the one who needs salvation most, Satan. I pray that he will ask the Lord for forgiveness for his sins. And, that he will accept the Lord as his Savior. And, I say, If you can not pray for Satan to ask forgivness, then you need to pray for yourself. I pray for you.
