Health Care 101

Everyone should watch this!

I invested the time to watch this and was very glad I did. It is very impressive that this Texas couple cares enough about the future of our country to make this video (at their expense)!

Be sure to watch both Parts 1 and 2.....THIS IS A MUST WATCH.......

Part 1

Part 2

They made 1000 copies,at their own expense,and sent one to every single congressman and senator and some media outlets.

Let's hope that each and every one of them watched and

Sonds like a tax to me

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.

Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it “Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold.”

Dear Leader

Do you think they would know the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag?

HAVANA — Barack Obama’s call for action on climate change and his admission that rich nations have a particular responsibility to lead has received strong praise from an unusual source — U.S. nemesis Fidel Castro.

That admission of America’s past errors "was without a doubt a brave gesture," Castro wrote in comments published by Cuban state-media Wednesday.

"It would only be fair to recognize that no other United States president would have had the courage to say what he said," the former Cuban leader continued…

I wonder if the "Dear Leader" is proud that Castro is happy about his speech...

Khadaffy Loves Bammy

9:47am Eastern update. Gadhafi is praising Obama as a “glimpse in the darkness.” He says he would be happy if Obama would be president forever.

And you thought I was exaggerating when I said Obama wanted to be BFF with thugs like Ahmadinnerjacket and Mo Khadaffy.

Michelle Malkin
reports that after claiming the Swine Flu Virus was a conspiracy against the Third World, Khadaffy went on to praise the USA's neo-Marxist radical president.

Saturday Trip

Off to a Greek Fest, I work for a few hours Sat and Sunday for a church the does a great deal for the local communities.

I will take a bunch of pictures Sunday of the fest parts.

The ceramic wall on the left side of the church entry, like my shirt?

Ceramic Tiles, the right side of the door into the church.

Is it Friday Yet?

Looking SW from the NW corner of town, about 10 or so minutes after sunrise

Chessie, Notice the redness here. We can see the Iron in the rock when we have a haze and the humidity is above 25% or so, you then can really see redness. I think what happens is it reflect into the haze and then shades everything until the heat and direct sun light begin to break it down.

Hey Stuart!!! sunrise in Vegas ....

Now Friday has begun

Getting over the edged

Gun History

After reading the following historical facts, read the part
about Switzerland twice.

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.. From 1929 to 1953,
about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded
up and exterminated.


In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1..5 million
Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and


Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total
of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were
rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million
political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and


Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000
Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and


Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000
Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and


Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million
educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and


Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century
because of gun control: 56 million.


You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians
disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes,
gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them
of this history lesson.

With guns, we are 'citizens.'

Without them, we are 'subjects'.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew
most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message
to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more
important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is








I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment!

Never Open Your Door to an Obamunist

In light of what we know about Obama's minions at ACORN, it isn't surprising that violent criminals can easily pass for Obamunist activists:

They were well-dressed when they knocked on the door of a Huntington [Long Island] home last month and said they had information about President Barack Obama's health care plan.

That's how they got inside to commit a violent home invasion on Aug. 29, a Suffolk prosecutor said Monday.

Home invader Vance Jackson will fit right in with this lineup.

He fits right in with these folks...

Sunday's Gem

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe,
we shall become as corrupt as Europe ..

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those
who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes.
A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the
government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of
taking care of them.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from
too much government.

No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and
bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny
in government.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the
blood of patriots and tyrants.

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of
ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties
than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks
to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation,
the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive
the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the
continent their fathers conquered..'

Storm is a coming

This one dumped a bunch just North of Nellis AFB, probably some of it was on base just north of the main runways.

This one is ENE You can see when it built up some then the higher winds would knock the top off To the left as you are looking.

That happened 3 or 4 times

This one off to the North. It was cool because of the light hitting it from the SW

Anyway as I ran around doing errands I got a few shots as the different cloud cells were growing around town.

I met a yellow eyed Lion

And a blue eyed Tiger

Friday Ods n Ends

The other day I was walking at this park and the guy that takes care of the park was mowing. He stopped to say hi, I walk here often, and he always ask how is the park. So I told him about a couple trees with very mean barbed and needled limbs were encroaching on the sidewalk. As luck would have it several times I would meet oncoming traffic as I passed this one tree. That is how I learned of the needles.

Trees Bleed Too

Well he didn't fiddle around,I will thank him next time I see him.

Another I like is this purple one. Almost all the parks around here has this bush. There are some times you want to give this plant pretty good birth of space. The bees love this one too, and sometimes there are many many bees.

Then they go to seed and the whole process last a couple 3 months.

One of my favorite at this park. As you will see in a couple phases of growth.

He didn't seem to mind I was walking by.

CA Smoke Still here in Vegas Valley

Walking at a park up on Alliente just South of the 215 Loop.

Then I could see the smoke layer. So I went up to the Aliente Casino on the 5th floor parking garage.

I tried to get the camera to focus on the cloud loop in the upper left of this one.

You can see the smoke layer on the bottom of this one.

Then minute or 2 later again you can see the neat cloud formation in upper left...

Finally got over the layer of smoke ;;;

Then back off to the park, I went to the one by the by the police station on Washburn.
