    Kitty Talk

    She's our third black cat. The first one lived 21 years. She was a sickly kitten that was adapted out,then brought back to the shelter. The wife took pity and brought her home. The second one adapted us. He was in the back yard and the wife Put out food and water. He started hanging around, and we ended up turning him into an indoor cat after about 6 months of enticing. Living the wild life took a toll on him. We spent $$$ on the vet to try to get him healthy, but it was a losing battle. He did go from feral to a lap cat in 7 years. So at least he was able to enjoy the last few years of life.

    Kitty Talk

    Got a cat from the shelter two weeks ago. Stormi is a 3 year old who already had a litter of kittens. They had all been adapted out, but after a couple of months she was still there. She was all skin and bones. She is very timid and the shelter told us she should be an only pet and in a home without kids. It's been two weeks. She looks a lot healthier and happy. Very curious and playful. She still spooks easily. She follows around behind the wife from room to room. She also has explored everywhere in the house, and likes sitting in the screen room in the back bird watching. It's hard to get pictures since she seems to react by running away.
  3. On a lighter note- on vacation in Naples Florida This week!
  4. No one trusts anything anymore. Much of what comes out of Government and the press has proven to be iffy. Often two Media outlets give out info that's 180 out of phase from each Other. And of course the internet is even worse. Our Leadership was always bad. It just has become more obvious. Fox and Msnbc are examples of extreme bias. Damn I miss Walter Cronkite.
  5. I really don't get the "holocaust didn't happen" crowd. My dad was a wwII vet. The 14th armored division liberated a bunch of the camps. One of the few things about the war He ever told me about. And he made sure I understood the horror of what he saw. He said he would never forget the gut wrenching smell of it either. I passed this along to both of my sons. If I ever have grandkids, they will hear it as well.
  6. The worst part was it was an 80 year old little old lady. You can't really respond back in any meaningful way.
  7. No winning move there anymore. No logic, just name calling. There's a lot of things wrong on both sides. You can only hope someday that everybody decides to get along. But people hold on to grudges. 160 years after the Civil War and people who hear me talk call me a damn Yankee. Welcome to human nature.

    I hope everyone in Iceland is safe right now. Let's hope the earthquake isn't the start of something much worse.
  9. So a handfull of crazies believe the emergency system test On Oct 4th on tv,radio,and phones will trigger a response from anyone who took the shot. Why are major media outlets not ignoring this. Maybe a half percent of people Believe this nonsense. And you can't change their mind, so why bother? Don't label it misinformation. It's crazy talk. Just be blunt and move on.
  10. So with the whole SBF trial coming up, why do we only hear crickets about SAM TRABUCCO ? The guy bailed a couple months before the collapse and is suspected to be hiding in international waters off South America on his boat. You'd think at least the press would of gotten a snapshot of him lounging on the deck by now.
  11. There's a lot more people in congress that are walking corpses. Finestein is completely out of it. Maybe a mental competency test needs to be standard? A couple more sure seem to be Close behind.
  12. Not to worry. I'm not a fan. But a lot of current policies aren't working. 30-50% higher prices are tough to handle,especially when retired. I guess me and the cat will be splitting the cat food.
  13. 1. Honest gun control. Not everybody should own a gun. 2. Congress to pass abortion laws. Spell out limits and exceptions. 3. Term limits 4. Limit the ability of government employees becoming lobbyists. Also some limits on who they go to work for. Example- former Head of cybersecurity now working for Chinese telecom firm known For hacking. 5. Roll back many of the extreme government powers created under the patriot act. 6 Set nationwide standards for education. Dumbing down requirements helps no one. 7. Roll back someone the extreme mandatory sentencing guidelines of the 90's. 8. Decriminalize pot. But regulate it. Not good for minors. Good for PTSD and some mental issues like extreme stress,etc. 9. Reign in some district attorneys on catch and release. Prosecute, but allow the convicted to get help to change their behaviors. If they don't, off to prison they go. 10. We aren't the leaders of the free world. Put away the soap box and deal with the reality of things. 99% of everything we try to improve we F up. If you can't fix Memphis, (example) you can fix a country thousands of miles away. 11. Stop drugging school kids. All those ADA kids of the 90's turned into the addicts of today. I saw too many of my son's friends go down this path. 12. Control spending. A broke government can help no one. Yes, debt matters. That's some big issues for me. I'm sure at least a couple will piss off someone here. I'm old and miserable. Sorry for the rant. I'll go back to yelling at the TV set.
  14. I have big issues with both parties. Reasonable abortion rules are fine. Banning it Or allowing full term abortions are both the wrong answer. I don't see democrats in big cities fixing problems. And jailing people isn't productive. Neither is letting them go after committing crimes. It feeds the cycle. How about using the courts to force people into changing their behavior? The police are neither the solution or the problem. Is Russia bad? Yes. But what about us? Look at the 14 trillion dollar path of destruction we carved across the middle east and Africa. We even sponsored a coup d atat of a democraticly elected government in Egypt. The 1950's are over. It time we look inward and fix problems. Not react to symptoms .
