Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something

So I'm back!

Been a long time since I looked at this blog.  A lot has transpired in our family since I last posted.  The most devastating thing was the loss of our daughter Michelle on June 27th,2010.  A quote I once read...You bury your parents on a mountain top but you bury your children in your heart...couldn't be more true.  Thankfully we had her in our family for 54 years but she passed way too young and left her husband, her children and her extended family heart broken.
We were visited this past summer by our daughter Linda and her two daughters, Shelby and Shaleen as well as by our son Ron, his wife Lisa and three of their grandchildren, Shalee , Elton and Logan.  We are still waiting to see Garrett and his wife Lindsey and Teasha and her son Christian.
Since June of this last year we have had custody of two of our great grandchildren, Madison and Michael.  No need to go into the circumstances surrounding their placement but they will probably be with us for awhile.

Three year old in Anchorage dead.

Gryphen has a story on the Immoral Minority blog concerning a three year old boy who picked up a gun laying on a TV stand in his home and killed himself.  A similar thing happened to a good friend of mine in Washington State.  His eight year old picked up a gun his dad had laid on the coffee table and was showing his friend when the gun discharged and killed his friend.  Yes it's devastating to all the families concerned but these negligent parents have to be brought to justice.  It's easy to say...they have suffered enough but how else does society get the message across that you are responsible for that weapon and all that goes with it.

At the time of the incident I referred to in Washington, the man responsible for leaving the weapon where an eight year old could pick it up was charged with careless use of a weapon, a misdemeanor, and was fined $100.  Since then, the law has been changed and it is now a felony to carelessly leave a weapon where a minor has access to it.  I don't know what the law is in Alaska but I would be very surprised if it is severe.

I don't care if some macho man wants to strap six shooters on and prance around like he owns the world but he also needs to know that if his weapon that he is responsible for injures an innocent person, he will pay the consequences.

A Joe Vogler wannabe

So the lieing grifter has told another lie. Add it to hundreds already told. The real danger is not her but the Palinbots that worship her. It's time Levi Johnson wrote a book and exposed this disgusting narcissist. There is no room in this country for the likes of the hatred she spews in her speeches. I believe she worships at the alter of the founder of the Alaskan Independent Party, Joe Vogler who once said, "The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government".

The grifter from Wasilla has another book coming out...god save us.  It is titled America by heart, Reflections of Family Faith and Flag.   I think I'm getting sickThis from a woman who couldn't name one supreme court decision, thought Africa was a country, couldn't name one newspaper that she read and thought the first amendment to the constitution was put there to protect her FROM the press.  Hasn't she about run out of lies?

Alaska'a Loss

Wally Hickel, two time Governor of Alaska passed away Friday.  Great loss for the state and the country.  Born in Ellinwood Kansas in 1919, Mr. Hickel arrived in Alaska in 1940.  He served two FULL terms as Governor unlike the Wasilla grifter, who he initially supported in her runup for Governor.  His statement a couple of years ago when asked about what he thought of the way she was Governing says it all...."I don't give a damn about Sarah Palin".

So the quitter thinks this is a Christian country.  Guess she would be surprised to learn that many of our founding fathers were NOT Christians but deists.  The Constitution NEVER mentions the word God  but hey...Sarah the word salad queen has never been hampered by facts.  By the way Sarah do you know where your 18 year old daughter was last Saturday night??  Yes Bristol, after promoting abstinence, family values and all of those other hypocritical ideas she promotes was seen in a after hours OVER 21 club in NYC.  This was the same night that Willow was dancing up a storm at her high school prom in Wasilla while Mom was ???
