A Much Needed Update

Alright guys, now that is has been over one week since Jonathan did a semi-post, I thought I should make a real one!! Once again it's December, which means that are lives are very hectic with birthdays, Christmas parties and Christmas. Last weekend was the busiest we've had all year. It all started with caroling on Friday night with our church. It was pretty fun, except the fact that no one was home, so we did a lot of walking and getting cold. It was worth it in the end though, because once we got back to the church building there was a lot of cookies and cider.

Saturday was the craziest day. It started in the morning with the premiere of the film Dialtone, which was done by a Christian film group in our area. After that we had a Christmas party at Fort Nisqually for the A/I's. For those of you who are not familiar with Fort Nisqually, it is a living history fort, and A/I stands for apprentice interpreter, which is a program for high schoolers who volunteer and re-enact. The party was fun, we danced, ate pizza, and talked. From Fort Nisqually we all went to Fort Steilacoom who was having their candlelight Christmas tour. It was sweet! Everyone knew how to dance, so we didn't have to waste time learning the dances.

On Sunday we had our Christmas party. After our church services we had a banquet of prime rib and turkey with all the trimmings. During the meal we had a program for families to show their talents. Once we had everything cleaned up, we started dancing. The party was supposed to go until 6:00, but it started snowing pretty hard and everyone left around 4:00. It usually takes us about half an hour to get home, but to due to ice and traffic it took us a whole hour.

For pictures of the events and a more informed post, stay tuned to Sarah's blog!


Some Political Parodies

These following parodies are done by a fellow named Paul Shanklin. His spoofs are quite hilarious!


This following video is just audio. Don't worry if you can't see anything.


The Audacity of Dope

This is an informing video on the chokehold the news media has on the uninformed voter. The media machine must be CRUSHED!!!! Or, you should have to pass an IQ test to vote. People need to do their research before filling their ballot.

I understand that people have done their research and came to the conclusion that Obama was the candidate capable of taking the country in a direction they agreed with. I respect their opinion and am content as long as they did their research. Though I disagree with that decision, I am thankful that I have the freedom to disagree. I am afraid though, that the media is censoring the truth. As my father says, "the fourth estate has become a fifth column." This means that the news media is working behind the scenes to destabilize our government and promote a socialist agenda.

It is time America moved on, quit reveling in the election of the blank screen, and fight for our freedoms! I for one shall pray for our leadership and trust in the sovereignty of God, knowing that He knows the outcome.

8th of November

Today is the 43rd anniversary of Operation Hump, during the Vietnam war. The 173rd airborne brigade was performing a seek and destroy mission, when they ran into a Viet Con regiment. Heavy fighting ensued and there was heavy casualties on both sides. Company C got the full blunt of the attack, while company B was able to flank the Viet Con and force them to retreat. Here is a song that Big and Rich made in memorial of it...



A few weeks ago, while I was practicing the bagpipes I received a telephone call. It turned out to be a guy named Larry Faulk, who was running for state senate in our district, and asked me if I was interested in campaigning for him. I decided, that since we haven't had a Republican in the state senate from our district in twenty years, it wouldn't hurt to support this guy. Not being in the nicest neighborhoods, I was a little hesitant about door-belling though. Mom and I went out the first time, and after a couple of houses I got used to it, and it wasn't too bad. For the most part it was uneventful. The second time Dad took Sarah, Jonathan, Me, and Esther, and was more like what I had expected. We passed a house that was boarded up by the city, a few wild dogs, and Democrats! Sarah got the majority of the democrats, who told her they "only vote for democrats."A few days later Dad, Sarah, and I went out and finished passing out the brochures that we had left over. We went to one house that had an Obama and union worker bumper stickers. Sarah decided she wanted to deal with these people, so went and rang the door bell. A lady came to the door, and when she learned that the guy we were campaigning for was running for the state senate she told Sarah very rudely, " I'm not interested,"and then closed the door. As we were walking away she yelled after us and said, "The Republicans have sure made a fine mess of our government." We asked a friend of ours about this lady, who lives a couple of doors down from where this lady lived. It turned out that the lady was a friend of our current senator. Yesterday, Jonathan and I went door belling with Larry Faulk in our neighbor hood. That was pretty fun!! Larry Faulk also told me that if he wins, I will go to Olympia with him as his page. So, If any of you are in the 27th district please vote for Larry Faulk, and send me to Olympia!!! I will go down there and shake things up, along with Dino Rossi and Larry!!While McCain and Palin will shake up Washington D.C!!

Jonathan Has Been Tagged

I am supposed to share 6 random things about myself. Here are the rules: Link to the person who tagged you, list the rules, write six random things about yourself, tag six or so people by leaving comments on their blogs and let the person who tagged you know that you've written the post. This will be great! Now for some random things.....

To tell everyone the truth, in my neighborhood tagging is illegal.

Anyway... On with the randomness.

1. On occasion, I refer to myself in my mind as a SPEND. SPEND stands for Self Proclaimed, Eccentric, Nerd. I add the D so the acronym sounds cool.

2. I've lived in America all my life.

3. I am not technologically Savvy.

4. I prefer dressing in the 1930's-40's style but have been forced to modernize.

5. I don't shower every day.

6. I only have 24 teeth in my mouth.

I am supposed to tag 6 more people, but I say, why limit? Whoever reads this and has a blog, should tag all their friends.*

I hope you learned something new about me!

* If you have already done the whole tag thing, you are exempt from having to do it again.

Don't Mess With Big Foot!!

Who says Sasquatch isn't real!!!



In response to the immense outpouring of my ardently devoted followers, I have fulfilled their wishes by posting. Thank you for your continued support of this blog. It is encouragement from people like you who keep this blog running. Stand with me and fight against dumb blogs. Stand with me my friends, stand up and fight with me !!!!

Stay tuned for more insanity -- ahem -- I mean more posts.

No, no, stop the insanity!!!!!!! I can't take it anymore.

Fencing Anyone?

David and I had the priviledge of building a fence. It took us about four days to complete, not including clearing and grading. We could've had it done sooner but David measured wrong and we discovered that our (I mean his) holes were off line and too far apart!!!! Because I was doing my Algebra, I wasn't able to follow up on his measurements. As a result, we had to pull the posts and re-dig which meant we lost an entire day of work.

David, straightening his crooked posts

On our second day of work the posts were secured in their correct positions. You can bet that we were extra careful in our measuring, digging and cementing.

Carefully measuring the corner post

Yours truly doing what he does best--mixing cement

Securing the posts so they will dry in the correct position

This picture doesn't need a caption, it speaks for itself. Look at how the shovel lays in the wheelbarrow and how the greenery all around acts as a frame. Notice how everything looks drab until David's pants gives it this look of life and activity.

If you have observed, Sarah always seem to take a stab at me with every post she makes. I have decided to do the same with this blog. Although, I will be using pictures of David. Here is the first.

After a full day of work I decided I should take a break and actually break a sweat


A Firefight in Iraq

I know this is another video, but this is really cool. Our soldiers are doing a superb job keeping us safe. I can't wait to join!!


Cops and Intruders

A couple weeks ago we witnessed several Hispanics moving in to the house next door, which is completely gutted, with out water, electricity, and a former meth house. We being law-abiding citizens, and knowing that the house is not in livable condition, called the police. They came pretty quickly and caught the intruders red-handed. Here are some pictures we took of the action...


Poor Mans Security System

I think this is the best security system yet!

Poor mans security system installation instructions.

1. Go to the Goodwill Store and buy a pair of men's work boots, size 14-16 (well used).
2. Place them on the front porch along with a copy of Gun and Ammo magazine.
3. Put a couple of BIG dog dishes next to the boots and magazine.
4. Leave a note on your door that reads: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hey Bubba!
Big Jim, Duke, Slim and Me gone for more ammo. We'll get back in about 1 hour. Don't mess with the pit bulls --- they got after the mailman this morning and messed him up real bad. I don't think Killer took part in it, but it was hard to tell from all the blood. Anyway, I locked all the dogs in the house. Better just wait outside till we get back.
