Score One For The Home Team

I'm pleased as punch to see that the BLM is pulling out from Cliven Bundy's ranch. As I've said for years, it's We the People who hold the power, not these power tripping bureaucrats who think they can bully us any way they want. Some true Patriots have just shown those bureaucrats, and the rest of us, that that is not necessarily the case. It is only true if we let them. This time, some brave folks did not let them.

Regardless of your opinion of Mr. Bundy and his ranching operation, legal issues, etc., this was a clear example of how out of control the federal government really is. They overstepped in a huge way and set the potential for another Waco or Ruby Ridge. The People did not stand for it, and I applaud them for keeping the BLM in check. It is a step in the right direction. We need to keep up the momentum and stomp out tyranny whenever and wherever it rears its ugly head...

Update

Wow it's been over a month since I posted anything...

Still hobbling around on crutches. Been going to physical torture therapy, ha ha. Trying really hard to get back on my feet, literally. Amputees recover quicker than this calcaneus (heel) fracture, been over 5 months now. But it is what it is and I carry onward.

It has been very challenging, physically, mentally and financially. One thing, which is obvious from my lack of posting and commenting around the blogosphere, is that this injury has really made me turn toward my inner self versus the outer world. Kinda hard to give a damn about anything else when you're broken. Just concentrating on getting as well as I can.

Don't know how this will shake out. Maybe I'll be "handicapped" from now on. Sure seems to be heading that way. I don't know. What I do know is that I have adapted and overcome as I always have. Just sucks being in "Limbo" for so long. I want resolution, one way or the other, so I can plan for the future...

Real Survival: Conquering Depression

I broke my heel on November 6, 2013. To this day I am still on crutches, due to the fact that I can't bear more than maybe 50% of my weight on my right foot. My doctor tells me that it could be a year before I may have any confidence in that foot again, there will be swelling, I won't be able to walk on uneven terrain, and I will surely have arthritis. My uncle, who has had similar injuries, confirms this.

Sitting around is not my cup of tea. I've always been a doer. Swap engines, rebuild them, rebuild transmissions, build boats, repair them, rewire them, rig them out... Hell, even mowing my own grass would be a wonderful thing at this point. But I have been hobbled for four months now, something I've never experienced before. Yes I was on crutches a couple months when I broke my ankle nearly 20 years ago, but I was a young man then and took it in stride. This time around has been much harder.

Depression has set in. I hate being unable to do the things I normally do. It's a hard thing for me to ask for help because I've always took great pride in being able to do most anything myself. I am fiercely independent and always have been. Not crying in my beer, just stating fact. Being "disabled", even "temporarily", is a hard pill to swallow for me.

I've tried to fill my days with reading, writing, surfing the web, doing as much as I can, which ain't much. The worst was not being able to drive, but I figured out a way. Can't drive far, but I can drive. I plead the 5th as to how I do it (or whether I do it at all)...

Helping my friends out as much as I can has also helped me some. One friend in particular has sprung me from "Folsom Prison" on numerous occasions, and that has done wonders for my morale. Visits from another friend have helped as well. But there have been a lot of boresome, lonely days in between. I occupy those days best as I can.

Fighting depression ain't easy, especially when you're laid up. But I've done ok so far. Mind over matter. the worst part has been lack of funds due to being reduced to 75% of my piddly pay, and being unable to do any side work that I have done in the past. Things are kinda tight, but we're scraping by as best we can.

Anyhoo, it is what it is. Hopefully I will be able to walk soon and go back to work. That will improve my morale 110%, never mind my financial situation. Meanwhile I occupy myself with whatever I can to keep me from going over the edge. Some days are better than others...

Hmmmmmm....

I'm finding it rather difficult to find things to post about. Preaching to the choir is pretty much off the table, did that long enough, with little to no effect. Could post about stuff I'm working on, but I ain't working on anything right now for several reasons, the biggest being that I am still a monoped at the moment...

So subject matter is a little elusive. But maybe something will come along to inspire me from time to time. I'll try to put up something at least once a week.

AT&T Sucks Donkey Balls

I've not had cell service for over 17 hours now. Tried to log in to AT&T "live chat" to figure out what the hell is going on, but their bullshit website is just as jacked up as their "service". What really pisses me off is I just paid those bastards!!! I wish I hadn't because I would have just gone and gotten a new phone service. This ain't the first time I've had this problem, and a friend of mine has had nothing but pure hell with AT&T cell "service". Calls constantly drop, texts don't go through for days some times... Piss on AT&T. Next month they are fired. I will get a new service provider, one that actually provides SERVICE for my money.

Sorry for my lack of posting but I ain't got much to post about. Still limping and gimping on crutches due to my busted heel. Not much going on. I could care less about the "news", or those jackasses who fancy themselves our "leaders". They don't "lead" me, in fact they pretty well illustrate to me what NOT to do. Not if you want to be a decent person.

Obammy Can Do Whatever He Wants

Obama: 'That's the Good Thing as a President, I Can Do Whatever I Want'

 At 4:45 POTUS and president Hollande walked out from a portico and strolled in Front of your pool with Leslie Bowman, president of the Monticello Foundation. Looking at a terrace she said that Jefferson loved to admire the landscape from there. POTUS said that he'd like to take a look and seemed delighted to "break the protocol".
"That's the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want" he quipped, walking to the terrace with his guest and Ms. Bowman. Pool now in the mansion as the leaders will come and visit Jefferson's study.

Well FUCK YOU Obammy I can do whatever the hell I want as well. And you can kiss my pimpled ass if you think otherwise. Bring it on motherfucker, I am armed and not afraid to die, unlike most of the pussies that infest this former "land of the free and home of the brave".

 That is all, we return you to your regular scheduled programming of titties and junior high humor.

C C C Cold...

Not much happening around here right now. Current wind chill is 32 degrees so "hibernation" is the word of the day. Still waiting on some other things to come together so I can get my projects going.

Otherwise not much for me to post about. I don't really give a shit about the goings on in the world any more. Tired of listening to all the doomsday predictions, the keyboard commandos... Yes, things are going to hell, slowly but surely. But nobody seems to be willing to do anything about it. The pResident has stated that he will violate the law and use the pen to advance his agenda, piss on CONgress.

Well, okey dokey then, have at it. I can ignore that shit just as well as I ignore all the other violations of my Natural Rights (never mind Constitutional Rights). I have no grandiose illusions of an army of "patriots" coming to save the day. Just ask Adam Kokesh and 4th of July Patriot how that worked out for them. Both are rotting in jail. Nobody came to their rescue, they were thrown under the bus. I'm not digging up links, go do your own research if you are so inclined. I'm tired of spoon feeding folks who don't even bother to click the links anyway. That's a large part of the reason why I quit blogging a while ago, the effort is futile if the goal is to educate folks.

So now I'm just gonna post what I want, when I want. And to quote Eddie Murphy, "It's MY house. If you don't like it, get the fuck out". I will not apologize for being just a tad jaded, six years of doing this shit kinda brought me here. It is what it is. So, until the next time, stay warm and see ya later. I'll post something when I can get some shit going around here, which will basically be when the weather, my jacked up foot and the bank account decide to cooperate.

Projects

Got a couple projects to finish up. Need to get me a bar stool to sit on at my work bench, and an acetylene torch. Some generous folks have helped me out in that regard.

When I'm back up on my own two feet I got another project to work on. I'm gonna build me a boat...
