Memorial Day 2010

Today every American needs to reflect upon those who suffer to keep us free.

God Bless our fighting forces and the sacrifices of their families:

It was only because of these sacrifices that we are fortunate to live in the best country in the history of mankind.

Jimi Hendrix – Army 101st Airborne

Drew Carey – USMC

George Carlin – USAF

God Bless America . . .

Donkey found not guilty of assault!

I’ve never been to Croatia or Eastern Europe, but I’ve seen the Borat movie, so I guess this makes sense, an 8 year long trial for a jackass:

“A Croatian donkey has been found not guilty of assault after a trial lasting eight years.”

The charges were serious, as Dino the Donkey bit a girl in Blazevdol . . .

Dino – Dead of old age, but not guilty

UNC Lesbian must pay back Army!

The act of “coming out” is a tactic used by military people since the American Revolution, as a way to avoid combat and put one over on Uncle Sam.

The most famous example of somebody acting like a deviant was Corporal Klinger from the MASH TV show:

Claiming sexual deviance to avoid military duty is nothing new

In the real world, we see soldiers like Dr. John Hensala who used homosexuality as an excuse to stiff the military for the costs of his medical school training!

Now, admitted homosexual Sara Isaacson may learn the hard way that you don’t stiff Uncle Sam!

America wants its money back!

C’mon, you don’t just decide overnight that you are a lesbian. . .

Shame on you, Sara Isaacson

The latest con is people claiming to be homosecual to avoid a sucky deployment or to Welch on a promise to serve their country:

“The military has historically fought attempts by those who would leave the military early under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and other circumstances without repayment of their college costs.

The military fears that could open the financial floodgates, forcing the government to give a free education to those who can’t or won’t make good on their commitment to serve on active duty and later in the Reserves.”

There is talk of charging her with fraud if it’s proven that she had homosexual encounters during college.

How to fire people with bad credit

Almost without exception, people with bad credit do not respect their obligations, and it’s insane to hire somebody with bad credit and put them in a trusted job.

In my business (computer systems that handle large amounts of money), it’s bad management NOT to fire somebody who gets bad credit. They become a bad risk, and their promises are not worth the paper they are printed on.

It amazes me how many hypocrites I see, people to claim to be religious and moral, but who have no qualms breaching their contracts if it suits them. They will tell you that they are men of honor, but their bad credit history betrays them as untrustworthy scum. I lose no sleep canning people like this:

Employers are now stepping up and exercising their right to discriminate against bums with bad credit, denying them jobs and prtomotions, and in some cases firing them for immoral behavior.

Only bums pay their debts late

I interview lots of people, and I’ve heard every excuse in the book for having bad credit (catastrophic illness), and it’s all bogus.

Honest people who whatever it takes to stay current with their obligations, pawning goods and taking out 2nd mortgages.

My brother-in-law had a catastriphic medical expense and rather than do the wrong thing, he sold his house and lived in a trailer for a decade until he paid just just debt.

If you think that you are going to convince an employer that paying a debt late is justified, think again.

You can not only deny a job to people with bad credit, you can also deny them promotions and in some cases, you are required to fire somebody who has bad credit.

See my notes on how to screen employees for immoral behavior

Personal Integrity is an absolute requirement for any job working with computers.

I’m now using this Questionnaire for evaluating moral turpitude, and making the job applicants pay beck the $1,400 cost of a background investigation if they lie about their personal history.

Your bad credit can and will be used against you, and The Government shows how to discriminate against people with bad credit.

Black Snakes keep the vipers away

Today we had a special visitor, a friendly black snake, and we immediately tried to make him feel welcome!

Black snakes are very special friends because they keep us safe by hunting and killing pit vipers, the deadly water moccasins (cottonmouth) and copperhead snakes that live on our ranch.

Today we got a visit from our new friend which Janet has named “Leroy”:

Leroy: Our new friend

Leroy is a beauty, over five feet long, and we spent over an hour with him, letting him get used to our scent so that he knows that we will not hurt him.

With a proper homecoming, a black snake will choose to hang around, which is perfect for us since we have had to kill severl deadly vipers in the tall grass this year!

The black snakes will scare away the copperheads and water moccasin. It’s quite a shock to see a snake taking a dip in the swimming pool!

Snakes in a pool: creepy stuff!

This one was just a milk snake, that looks like a water moccasin, but you must be careful to know which snakes to kill. Carolina people have used this poem for centuries:

“Red to yellow, kill a fellow. . . . Red to black, venom lack.”

Black snakes love to hunt and kill the water moccasins.

This is what you don’t want to see, a deadly snake in a pool.

You can’t shoot them without damaging the pool lining, and it hard to bash them to death in the water.

To kill a poisonour snake in a swimming pool you have to scoop them out and blast them with a 14 gague, a lot of trouble . . .

Water moccasin are hard to kill without damaging the pool

The copperheads like swimming also, and they are attrached to pools:

Copperheads like swimming pools too

All in all, there is no better way to keep venenous snakes away than to have a black snake.

Sometimes a friendly black snake will come into your house to hunt mice:

Never, ever kill a black snake

American Illiterati homonyms: Get them wild they last!

I get uphauled at the creative use of English here in NC, where they put a sign in the Kittrell Post Office that they would no longer address mail for illiterate people.

We saw this sign at a Kittrell country store that the Cooler’s are selling something, but only wild they last:

Get them wild they last!

See my list of homonyms used by the American illiterati:

Respect are Country

Street legal airplane

I’ve been a licensed pilot since 1973, and one reason I don’t fly places is because I get “stuck” at small airports with no read transportation.

Check this out a Street Legal Airplane.

It costs $194,000, not much more money than a standard Piper or Cessna, and it’s quite stylish too.
