General Electric, Who do you Support?

This just really upsets me! I would use stronger words but my mother taught me better. It is OUTRAGEOUS! I heard it on O'Reilly again last week and it triggered something in the ol' grey matter. I finally found it and can't believe it is happening. It was originally reported in January of this year and apparently continues.

Several of us bloggers have sons currently serving in the GWOT, Global War on Terror. It has been reported that General Electric continues to do business with Iran. This after it has been proven that Iran continues to train, fund, and equip terrorists in Iraq.

Why this information is not aired in a big way is beyond me. On the O'Reilly show he stated that several states have divested all interests in investments in Iran. Has your state, or your, pension fund? Have you contacted your Congressman or Senator to find out why they have allowed this to continue? This is truly a "do nothing congress" and as long as our sons and daughters fight for this county major corporations in this county need to put their lives before the stockholders interest. If it weren't for our sons and daughters there wouldn't be any company or stockholders.

Boycott General Electric in everything and every way you can.

OH MY!!!


Gotta get this going before I start to work replacing what was so carefully constructed over the past week. You see, the boys were here for a little weeks vacation while mom and dad went to Atlantic City, compliments of the in-laws, to gamble the milk money away. Well not really the milk money but to have a good time after 15 months in the City of Sadam and 2 months home at Fort Bragg waiting to go on the well deserved 30 day leave. So ol’ ABNPOPPA and my better half to quote Subvet, “she who must be obeyed”, ABNMOMMA were re-activated to the parental guidance role.

What was once a nice efficient, passive solar house and homestead was transformed by two of the three grandsons in to the Skateboard/bicycle Track of Champions while I was at work performing my super secret government operations, so secret I can’t even tell myself what I do. Zak, and Evan the 11 and 10 year olds without help from any adult or older sibling constructed the park you see in the pictures.

The good news is that after 4 days of riding and boarding in various stages of construction no trips were made to the hospital. ABNMOMMA was pressed into nursing duty for several scraps and abrasions but no broken bones. If you are wondering were the bricks came from if you look at the background you will see a partially dis-mantled flower garden wall. This wall must be rebuilt as the boss said it makes the ranch look trashy. Like the skateboard park is aesthetically appealing?

Oh well, I better get to work, the real boss is due home shortly and if it looks like I did something I might just get dinner.

Grandkids, you gotta love ‘em!!!

Flag Day

Hi Folks,

My post is short and sweet this time. I borrowed it from a man named Red. In these times of trouble and tribulation maybe we ALL need to remember what it means to ALL of us who live in the best county in the world. Clik onthe link, The Pledge, on the left. You may have to paste it to your browser but it is worth it.
