This picture sums up alot of my feelings.

Why on Gods green earth would ANYONE serving a public office REFUSE to place his hand over his heart when saying the pledge.

I still find it hard to believe this idiot runs one of the greatest countrys in the world.

Sad. The jerk doesn't care about victory? Maybe he needs to loosen the towel rapped around his head. Your an American, start acting like one.

Well, racing is over for the year. Had above normal nice weather for the Big Rapids race. A little chilly in the mornings. But, compared to last years rain and cold.....I loved it. This picture is one of the racers, I think Terry Kerr, doing a little Pre-race fishing. Didn't see him catch anything. But I thought it looked like a picture that had to be taken. The race turned out great. Only had 2 guys came out of their boats. No injuries, and we all stayed dry in the rescue boats. Had the SLT's there and they put on a great show...like they always do. Gotta go check out my site for pictures of them. I don't see them very often so the day was pretty much all pictures of them. I also had two of the SLT drivers drive the rescue boat around Saturday. So I kinda picked on them as my subjects. Hope I got some good pictures of them. It'd be cool to have one of them. They are fast and the things turn on a dime. Would be a great fun toy to have. Don't know about racing one of them, can't see me going neck and neck at those speeds! Ok off I go for the day. See you soon. Live Strong.

So the question of the day is......would that have been a racist remark?

As you know Kanye West was an ass at the MTV awards. Got on stage and stole the Mike from Taylor Swift and ran his mouth. Not like something stupid never happens at a MTV awards show. People around the country were outraged. At least Beyonce gave up some time to let her thank the folks she needed to thank.

So later our dear leader says....

"I thought that was really inappropriate," Obama says. "What are you butting in (for)? ... The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person. She's getting her award. What's he doing up there?"

A questioner chimes in, "Why would he do it?"

"He's a jackass," Obama replies, which is met with laughter from several people.

The president seems to quickly realize he may have gone too far, and jovially appeals to those assembled that the remark be kept private. "Come on guys," he says. "Cut the president some slack. I've got a lot of other stuff on my plate."

I laughed! Then I realized that was the very first time I had agreed with ANYTHING he has ever said. Wierd. So I am on the way to work and get to thinking. If any other president had said that what would happen? Would the race card get thrown onto the table? I gotta think it would have. Kanye is a jackass, I don't care if he is white, black, purple or any other color. It just seams to be "ok" that a black president called a black singer a jaskass. Had Clinton said that....what would really have had happen afterwords?

Good job Obama. Bout time you thought along the line of the citizens of the country. So now run with it and do something right for once, or should I say again?

Have a great day.

Well, it's 9-11. Sad day in the country. The news is blasted with the terrible scenes of the attack on NYC. Can't imagine being in the towers and jumping to your death. As a country we lost 343 fire fighters in the attack. And still guys are fighting for their lives from the poor air quality during the rescue. Sad thing is that NYC had told those people that the air quality was safe. More government bull shit. But, still we hear nothing of the suicides that are happening due to the attacks. What a shame.

So a few years ago I sat down and did some looking and figuring. I found out how many people that were reported dead. Then thought if we only did one funeral each day, starting on the day of the attacks it would look like this:

TRADE CENTERS Last Funeral Date
Total Deaths 2752 03-25-2009 (Civilians/workers)
Fire fighter deaths 343 08-20-2002
Police officer deaths 75 11-25-2001
Flight 11(struck north tower) 92 12-12-2001
Flight 75 (struck south tower ) 65 11-15-2001

Total deaths 125 01-14-2002 (Civilians/workers)

Flight 77 (pentagon) 64 11-14-2001
Flight 93 ("Let's Roll"-PA) 44 10-25-2001
All deaths combined 3020 12-18-2009

So just think, look at that last number. All deaths combined. We would still have a few months of funerals to attend. 3020 deaths! And the jack ass running this country wants to attach a new name to 9-11 to make it a more happy day! WTF? I would challenge him to go to any fire house in NYC and see what the guys there think. Sure Obama no problem, let all forget everyone that was murdered that day and hell while we are at it maybe we should get Hallmark to come up with some pretty flowered cards to sell!!!!!

By the way, if you send me one of those cards expect to get it back!
please note the picture posted is NOT mine, I take no credit for it. I copied off the internet.

What a weekend. Dad, Craig, William and I took off Saturday for the thumb. I had searched the web and found a water fowl guide in near Port Hope. I had called Ray a few times and we had picked Sunday as the time. We got there Saturday night and met them at his house. He took us to a buddies house and we called a nice addition to a pole barn our home for the night. The next morning at 4:30 we got up and headed to Hot Shot Outfitters to meet up with the gang and go hunting. Hauling two trailers full of decoys and blinds we arrived to a nice fresh cut hay field. After a short time we were ready to go. But as geese will be they were lazy and hung out on Lake Huron longer than we'd like. But when they came they came. The weather was perfect, even had some fog roll in to add to the pictures. When we finally called it a day we had a total of 30 geese taken for the group. It was a blast. I did more videoing than shooting. William had a great time. I'll bet he'll be packed and ready next time i bring up the idea of going again.

Of course there are pictures on the web site.

2000 miles down, 1650 to go

Seams that anywhere you go in Michigan is an orange barrel. No fun to stop here, of all places, to take a 10 mile picture. I figured out my over all miles and found that I only needed to ride 2.2 miles to hit the 2000 mile mark. So i took a nice easy ride on lunch and got it done. I wasn't thinking an orange barrel would be posing with my Trek.
Last night we took our Fire Department pysicals. I failed the EKG part and was told to not ride the bike until I saw my family doctor. Well, you need to know my family doctor! He has about the IQ of an empty water bottle. I'll not tell you the whole story. It'll give me something to blog about friday night! So anyhow I get to go pay him to be an hour late. He'll walk in and say whats up? I'll give him the low down. He'll say go give the nice lady at the desk $20.00 and I'll reschedule you for an EKG. I am just hoping he checks my blood pressure before all of this! It is normaly high any time I go see him anyways!
So anyhow I am zipping, oops i meant, taking it easy down the trail. I caught myself singing a Miley Cyrus tune. Go ahead laugh but with two girls in the house you find yourself listening to stuff you normaly wouldn't. Besides she ain't actually to bad. But the song "The Climb" was going through my noodle. Go google it. Ok I am off for now. See you tomorrow. LiveStrong
