Keep your eyes open.

With so many "BIG" things going wrong, we sometimes forget about the little things. The saying was "if you take care of the nickels and dimes, the dollars will take care of them self". How you manage you funds starts with the little things. Here is an example.

I take an over the counter allergy pill. You can purchase it with a R/x but it costs more. You can purchase the name brand but that costs more than the generic store brand. 10mg is 10mg regardless of who's name is on the cover.

I'm at the store today to purchase some. I look at the store brand and it is $9.95 for a thirty count bottle. I don't remember them being that costly so I looked again. Right next to the thirty count bottle are sixty county bottles of the same thing. The box is a different color but the wording is the same. The cost is $7.95. That's $2.00 less for double the number of pills.

Go figure.

Russian blogger has it right

Posted in Pravda from Russian blogger Stanislov. Shortened but still long.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people. First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe. Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride. Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "freeman" whimper. So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive. The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

This outsider has us pegged.

Losing our Freedom

A Dallas HOA asks a Marine vet to remove pro marine bumper stickers from his car or be fined. A San Diego Pastor and his wife are fined and threatened with escalating fines for holding weekly bible study's for 15 people in their home. A hospital supervisor in the Dallas/Fort woth area was asked to remove her 3' x 5' American flag from her cubicle because another supervisor was offended.

I have a flag on my house, I hold weekly Bible studies and our son has anti-Obama stickers on his truck. How long until they come for me?

This has got to end and people need to wake up! There is a right and wrong, a black and white. We have become so PC that if anyone is offended by anything it is illegal. Well, I'm offended by liberals telling me what I can and can't do. Can we outlaw idiots?

Elections have consequences.

What happened?

What happened to our new blogger? I checked in earlier today but now the post I saw is gone. Was he even crazier than I am?

Supreme Court Pick

Word is out that Obamas first pick is Judge Sonia Sotomayor. She is single, Hispanic and has been a federal judge since 1992. At first glance she seems to have been involved with very few profile cases in which to grade her. She was first appointed by George H Bush and later named an appeals judge by Clinton.

Since the Republicans have no hope of stopping any pick Obama would nominate I think we could have done a lot worse. We'll see what evolves in the months ahead.

It doesn't get much better than this.

This was one of the many we caught today. Tonight in a period of less than thirty minutes I caught five of them. Even the small ones put up a fight on an ultra-light rod and reel.

Next month our daughter, son-in-law and four grandchildren will be coming to the cabin for a ten day fishing trip. Needless to say I better keep practicing to be ready for the six annual Grandpa. Dad and Grandson fishing tournament.

As I said, life can be good.
