Brian Jones Murdered? | Yahoo! Music

Rolling Stones News – Yahoo! Music

I knew Brian Jones was one of the original members of the Rolling Stones and that he’d died… always assumed it was from drug overdose. Now I guess they’re looking into murder – but 40 years later?

Guess the authorities may have fallen asleep on that one…

SPLCenter.org: Prejudice in Paradise

I’d heard about this situation years ago but it seems like it’s about to get more visible. Local “Hawaiians” (most natives are mulitnational Asians I’m betting) want to secede from the US and return Hawaii to it’s royal heritage.

Setting aside the idea that a US state would ever secede, don’t these idiots realize a huge part of their success depends on tourism? Who wants to vacation in a place where racial hatred fuels violence against tourists?

Unbelievable.


Rangel Must Step Down

Here and here – as a high ranking Democrat on powerful congressional committees, either Charlie Rangel goes or the Dems fess up that they’re just fine with corruption.

The Curious Case of Medical Tourism « See First Blog

Not only is the media complicit in furthering false stories that support the agenda, but once again I’m looking for reasons why US medicine is so desperate for reform.

People WANT to come to the US for the best medical care – not the other way around.


Golf Swing

August 30, 2009

Its finally coming together… been spending time working on it in the backyard and started going to the driving range. Today it started to show.

This is my second day in a row going to the range and when I started today the slice that dominted everything yesterday continued. Was getting pretty frustrated when I decided to slow it down, focus on keeping the club head controlled and closed at impact. I noticed too that twisting my hips on the downswing helped.

I hit two large buckets of balls and by the end of the second one I was driving long with all my might and only seeing a small hint of a slice.

Even better, I picked a spot and continued to aim for it with improving results. Long swings are nice, but ultimately you want to control where the ball lands.

But swinging with everything I have and the ball traveling STRAIGHT was way cool… THAT’S what it all about. That’s why I started playing long ago.

Sweet.


W Today

August 29, 2009

Its that time again – he needed a haircut so stopped by this afternoon on a very warm Saturday. He was sleeping but woke when Luciano loaded him in the wheelchair.

After the haircut Luciano gives him a rough shower… rough because though Luciano has a good heart he doesn’t have a light touch. That plus the fact that W is a very heavy 125 lbs. W hasn’t the strength or ability to control his own body so isn’t easy to move him around… he doesn’t shift his weight or balance when it would help. Anyway, all that to say Luciano probably is unaware of his tendency to be rough with his care.

In the end W is clean and that’s the important thing.

So now he’ll be delivered to his room where I’m waiting. Usually after a shower he’s tired, either from the ordeal or from a seizure. When he was younger and I gave him showers I noticed he’d have seizures whenever water got near his face… kind of made it hard to wash his hair, but you do what you have to do. I tried everything to avoid seizures this way but most of the time there wasn’t anything you could do about it.

Another predictable seizure trigger was pulling a tee shirt off of him. Putting it on was ok, but pulling one over his head was a sure way to bring on a seizure.

Obama Administration Urged to Consider Expanded Interrogation Methods – Political News – FOXNews.com

Unbelievable… You simply cannot ignore the fact that in the short time Democrats have been in control spending has jumped enormously and our enemies feel MUCH safer.

While I don’t personally feel immediate danger, I’d sure hate to be responsible for dealing with terrorists. Like, the Dems expect them to be neutralized – but don’t hurt them.

Ever hear of a similar failed military strategy called Vietnam? Come to think of it, that’s also the last time the liberals snowed the nation to gain control over military policy.
