A man with no class and no clue.









What planet has this man been living on for the last eight years?  Certainly not the same one I have.

Next time I go to Chattanooga I'll invite him to take a ride down Gun Barrel Road with me. He clearly needs to get off the golf course and smell the roses out in the real world.



The German political establishment is searching for a "motive" behind the Iranian shooters attack in Munich. Wonder what it could be?  They say he had no known associations with Islamic terrorists. Not the first time we've heard that, is it.

My ammo from Sportsman's Guide is supposed to be delivered today.  FEDEX has started sending drivers out here that are always different, and the last time I had ammo coming in, it was a problem. Instead of leaving it at the gate, the driver took it back to Cleveland, TN and left me a "notice of failed delivery". So this morning I got up at 0600, and drove down to the gate. I left it open and they will just have to come up here. Too bad for them.  Not so easy to get up the mountain when the road is all wet and slick, and very difficult to turn one of their trucks around.  The last guy who tried that knocked his outside mirror off the truck.  Really misty and wet here today, I doubt I'll be going outside much.

  1. The thing about Barry is he's been absent from Chicago for so long that he is blind to the violence. He lives in the DC bubble. Nero laughs while Rome burns.

    As for Billary...can't wait for the clown show in Philadelphia. The MSM should really put a good spin on things. --Troy

  2. That's exactly right. You can't see much of Main Street from the golf course in Hawaii.

    I watched the different MSM yesterday, trying to tear down Trumps speech. MSNBC had some guy on there from an obscure liberal think tank who said that the United States has never been safer, and that violent crime has never been at such low rates as during the period of Obama's tenure. I tried to fine some statistics on line to support that view, and came up dry. That little twerp needs to get out of his office and spend some time in Atlanta. Or , he could just watch the morning news coming out of Atlanta, with it's daily litany of murder, shootings, robbery, home invasions, assaults, etc.

    Obama is of the same ilk as Che Guevara.

    Everytime something happens, I'm sure his inner revolutionary is overjoyed.

    1. Well, he may feel like these things are collateral damage from his social engineering endeavors. Vaguely regrettable but acceptable in view of what he has accomplished.

    1. Little hope, but lots of change. All in a negative sense, but he never said just what changes he had in mind.

  5. There is something seriously wrong with the mental condition of a person who would joke while talking about another mass killing. I think it should be required that before any politician takes office they should spend some time living with someone like me. Someone living on a fixed income. Someone who doesn't feel safe leaving their home after dark. Someone who avoids crowds because of the frequency of attacks in such places. Someone who is reluctant to use public transportation any more for the same reason. Someone who finds it necessary to provide their own methods of self defense as opposed to employing an contingent of armed guards.

    I hear people say that if we change the way we live, the terrorists win. I didn't know it was a win or lose game. It is more just doing what a person has to do to stay alive these days.

    Those elites have no earthly idea what life is like for the rest of us. Don't suppose they ever will.

    1. Always reminds me of the first Bush, who went into a grocery store while campaigning and was amazed by the scanner at the register. He never ventured into places like that because he had servants who did the mundane things in life for him. Obama is of that class. He doesn't know or care what things are like for the working class.

  6. Thanks for visiting. I loved your butterfly story. I could see it. Sadly along with our way of life our environment in dying. We see fewer and fewer butterflies each year.

    Have a blessed week.

    1. Even way up here in the mountains, I've seen a lot of changes for the worse over this last thirty years. Most of them are associated with too many people. Mountain tops sheered off for building sites. Big highways. Creeks cluttered and polluted.

      If I had to leave Texas. I would consider going out somewhere in the Appellation Mountains. Since I am hearing stuff like this I wonder if any backwoods hollows still exist. I like places that time has forgot. There are lots of places like Valentine, Texas that are filled with abandoned, falling apart houses and business's. I am also attracted to places like that.
      I really like the salt water but one day I may retreat to some backwards, desert 'hole in the wall' that the rest of the world has given up on or forgotten about.

    3. If you can possibly do it, find some quiet place where you can still have the ocean. It's such a big part of your lifestyle.

      There are not many places you can go and completely escape in the North Georgia mountains, but there are still some in North Carolina. I would love to live in the desert, somewhere like the high desert of Oregon. But with more than thirty years invested in my place here, and considering my age this is probably it for me.

  7. So did your ammo ever show up?
    Curious minds want to know.

    1. Yes. About two this afternoon. It was the same driver who came up here last time and knocked the rearview mirror off the drivers door trying to back down. This time he called me and I took the jeep down and met him at the mailboxes. Since the old man who used to take his tractor and smooth off the county dirt road passed away it has gotten really bad. I doubt that the FedEx truck could have got to the top of the first climb, let alone to my gate.

      He's a nice guy and meeting him down there helped us both. I don't want the drivers to stop delivering to me because it's in the too hard category. I had one do that. Every time he one of my packages he would file an exception report and let someone else deal with it the next day. Now my can of ammo sits on the kitchen table, waiting to join it's many brethren.

  8. Once you realize that Obama is, in fact, a Muslim you understand everything he does and says. He is a puppet put in place by the globalists who want to take the USA down to prepare for the U.N. one world government, also known as Agenda 21. As long as we are all still armed, they are hesitant to take us on in the open. Obama was the Trojan Horse and we all fell for it. He does not care about Americans and has nothing but contempt for our way of life. He is nothing more than an educated nigger. There, I said it.

    1. You know, for a long time Deb and CC used to tell me he was a Moslem and I always disagreed. But given the events of the last few years it makes sense to me. I can't think of any other way to explain his behavior. Among other things, his fury at Britain leaving the EU only makes sense if he was a globalist. So your analysis matches up with some other pretty smart people. It makes the current situation we all face even more depressing.

      One things for sure. Obama had a picture of Idi Amin on his wall as a pot smoking teenager.

      Myself, I had pictures of women on my walls as teenager and I drank beer across the border in Mexico. I was chasing women too. The last thing on my mind would be thinking about Idi Amin.

      Barack Obama ain't right.

    3. You mean President Field Marshal for Life Dr. Idi Amin Dada? We'd have been better off with him. At least he didn't pretend to be anything other than a gross, sweaty, murderous thug. You knew where he was coming from. Obama plays a role but isn't anything like what he would like people to take him for, as we have all learned to our costs.

      Sounds like you had a good time as a young fellow. Lucky you didn't get whacked in Juarez. I went down there a couple of times, thought it was great but found later in life that the real Disneyland for Adults was Olongopo, Subic Bay, the P.I.

  9. Those two video clips are simply disturbing. I think he wants to be a stand up Comedian and got to be president instead! He didn't even come in to the press room in a Presidential or concerned manner. AKKKKK its horrible!

  10. Good luck with your package. It is very hot and dry here. We could use some rain now but hopefully it'll stay dry until we get up the rest of our hay. We got half of it yesterday. It was 96 degrees. I drank so much water after but I still feel dehydrated today. The good thing is once it's all up we won't have to do it again until next summer.

    1. I can't imagine haying in this heat. That's horrific work at the best of times. I hope you are all taking it slowly and staying safe. We have had rain every day, which keeps everything wet and steamy, but brings down the probability of a forest fire, my great nightmare.

  11. I can think of a great going away present for obama before he leaves office! Impeach him, what a legacy that would be. Also then, all his buddies in jail or about to be in jail couldn't get the Presidential Pardon they're looking for! :-)

    1. Hillary would pardon them. Obama has pardoned some six thousand criminals, mostly black and drug related, according to a blog I read. I need to try to substantiate those numbers but it wouldn't surprise me at all.
