Oh my God! I got up this morning and the sky has fallen! Armageddon is coming! We will all die a horrible death! The Feral Gooberment has shut down!

Wait a minute here. I still have electricity, the lights and my ‘puter still work. My propane didn’t suddenly go away, I am nice and warm. I went out on the deck and the lake is still right where it belongs. I heard the migratory ducks and geese that I hear every year.

My television still works and I have not seen any news stories about Guam tipping over, Kalifornia sliding off into the ocean, or a volcano in Chile blowing its top killing thousands of people.

What the f*** people! I thought a gooberment shutdown was going to be a big thing! I doubled up on my Swann’s order of key lime pie, shrimp and scallops! I bought a few more boxes of ammo for my weapons! I even doubled up when I went on my beer-whiskey-cigar run yesterday! Then I get up this morning and what do I see?

A beautiful sunrise shining on the lake. A lot of booze to get me by until the end of March or so. Enough Shrimp and scallops to feed my neighbors a feast. Which I will do tomorrow while we are watching the football games and sucking down the hooch. In other words, not one damn thing is different today that it has been since we were wearing diapers. Friggin’ fear mongers in gooberment positions and the lame stream media are sickening excuses for human beings.

I think ours boys in uniform aren’t getting a paycheck tho. The Repubs need to be screaming from the rooftops that Democrats care more for illegals than our own troops.

I haven’t heard from my grandson, a Marine, or my granddaughter, Air Force, in a while but if they need some cash I will get it to them. Meanwhile Trump needs to stand strong. No deals when it comes to illegal aliens!

A little funny for the day. I went to town this morning on my weekly trash-beer-whiskey-cigar run and heard a story on the radio. It seems some guy burned his older brothers home down because older brother farted in his face years ago! LMOAO…I have four younger brothers and we were meaner than hell to each other! But none of us have burned anothers house down because of something that happened years ago! And we have never, to this day, allowed anyone to mess with any of us.

Reading this reminded me of a Grand Canyon trip that took us through Freedonia,Az. On the way out of town there’s a convenience store. Their lighted sign in the drive advertised, “Ammo, Guns, Beer, Cigarettes and Lotto.” I drove by thinking GD, I’m proud to live in this country!

Dayam! What was I doing wrong yesterday?? I check today and the songs I was trying to post are hear. And a Big thanks to MGAP for posting them too!

Things better today, I got some good news for a change. Sorry if I sounded like a grumpy old fart yesterday, it had nothing to do with anyone here.

And welcome back all those MIA IHTMers that are returning to the IHTM fold these last couple weeks!

I kind of miss some of the old haters, they were so much fun to argue and debate with. The more truth and common sense we tossed out there the wilder they would get. Almost as funny as watching an old Johnny Carson rerun!

This friggin’ website pisses me off to no end. I want all my old friends, who are having heath problems, to listen to two songs that say what I think better than I can say. Google up That’s Why I Pray by Big and Rich and I Was Born Free by Kid Rock. I have tried to post a link to the songs twice and cannot do it so you guys have to do it yourself. I am not an educated man, I don’t have the words to say what those two songs say to all of you here. Check them out and remember this: You were born free. You try to be a better person every day and that is why you pray. Enough said, I am not having a good day so I am going back to the music that has kept me sane for a lot of years now.

I hate this internet crap, nothing can be done the easy way. I wanted to post two songs, Big and Rich That’s Why I Pray and Kid Rock I was born Free. Some of us are getting older and having problems, like CO2, Ghost and others and I want to try to tell them that they will be remembered long after they are gone. Just like the rest of us around here will be some day. The point is, don’t cry over me, I was born free! The other point is I pray because I try to be a better man every day but I have some demons that do not go away but that is not going to stop me from trying!

I look at things today and think about what has been, what will be. Our old friends here like CO2 and Ghost, even me, are having more health problems but I want all you IHTM folks to remember the most important thing. We were born free! All of us who saw combat still have things running around in our heads that cause sleepless nights but that is our own thing because we were born free! I a not an educated man, I don’t have the words to explain all the pyschobabble so I do it with music. I don’t know if I can do this right but I want all you to listen to Born Free by Kid Rock and That’s why I Pray by Big and Rich.

Well well well, howdy boys. Long time no see. Has this place gotten over its Never Trump tantrum? Kinda miss the ol’ neighborhood.

Hi! Welcome back!

whiskeyriver

Welcome back PsychoDad! I too stayed gone for a while, partly because of the never Trump nonsense and partly for personal bullshit but I am glad to be among friends again. I kinda miss old Olive Oyl! If nothing else we could all get a laugh at some of the silly crap she posted!

Hey there PD….I still don’t care for Trump as a person, I think there were better candidates running during the primary but they didn’t win. Overall I give him a “C” so far. I still have no tolerance for left flat making stuff up even if it is about Trump, and will at least try to correct the record when it happens, yet at the same time I also have little tolerance when those on the right who try to act like he’s playing some type of 4th dimensional chess. But that just means I’m the same ol’ drb, who has to let her horns show. 🙂

Has anyone heard anything about CO2? Kind of worried about the old fart is all.

Okay, I never get on here and say a lot, but I just read this and was fascinated with it because I don’t remember being exposed to it before. https://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2016/09/03/king-murdered-in-hospital/ My personal connection to the upcoming 50th anniversary of MLK’s assassination is the memory of returning to Memphis after my Spring break from my freshman year at college and arriving after dark during the curfew that followed the assassination. I drove from the east end of Poplar Avenue to my tiny apartment near Overton Park without seeing another car. Pretty spooky. No one tried to stop me.

JPTravis

Pretty convincing link. Odd that the assassination of MLK and the assassination of JFK are linked by physical evidence to some of the same people, specifically Jack Ruby. There’s no way you can explain that away by labeling this a whacky conspiracy theory.

SHAGGY
Member

Yeah, Jack Ruby and Lyndon Johnson. I stayed in Memphis after college and left in 1986. Crime got so bad I knew I couldn’t stay there for the rest of my life.

Is anyone else getting tired of the sob story commercials from the ASPCA?
I’m an animal lover, but their commercials just piss me off. They try to guilt you into giving them money, and I hate it.

KimmyQueen
Member

Agreed. I used to donate. but they are money hungry and I heard they kill the animals anyway.

whiskeyriver

Ever notice that they want as much or more per month to help the “poor” animals than St. Jude’s children and Shriners hospitals want to help “poor” children with disabilities and serious illnesses? Or the Wounded Warriors Project that helps thousand of veterans with disabilities?

I don’t “play well” with adults, don’t know very many I care to associate with, but a child or fellow veteran? I have never met a child I wouldn’t wrap my arms around and do all I could to protect and make sure they felt loved. I have met very few veterans who I would kick the crap out of because they are liars and never suffered like the real vets I served with. I send $50 bucks per month to those three charities and that is all I donate to.

Another “charity” I quit giving money to is the Salvation Army. I used to stuff cash into their red kettles every year until one year, about 20 years ago, when I was watching the Rose Bowl parade. I was doing a little “hair of the dog” thing to get rid of my hangover, watching the parade when I see this million dollar float. A Salvation Army float. In the Rose Bowl parade? This is where my money has gone? To finance a million dollar float to roll in the Rose Bowl parade? I have not given one penny to the Salvation Army since.

St. Jude’s. Shriners. Any veterans charity until they prove to be money hungry and not doing what they say with my cash, helping vets being number one. All the whale loving, dog loving, cat loving, eco freak assholes can kiss my old wrinkled ass and they will never see one penny in donations from me.

Has he even had his “Lopitoffome” yet?

whiskeyriver

If you are talking about the traitor I don’t think so. I’m willing to bet that Manning he/she is going to file another lawsuit to force the VA to pay for his lopadickoffme operation.

Well it is a proven traitor, perfect resume enhancer when your going for the demodipshite votes.

Personally, I hope he secures the nomination. Then we will always have that to point to for proof that Democrats are traitors.
