Gambling and girls

Oh boy, somebody pray for me. I want to gamble and chase girls....

My car overheated last night near downtown so I pulled into the Plaza and wasted $40 on blackjack. This morning I want to gamble some more or find some girls to hold hands with. Well....

I must be a bit manic. God help me. I don't want to be good.

A rant against the myth of Global Warming

On my fave site someone started a thread that posted a site that touts some Evangelical group espousing Global Warming as something to actually be concerned about. They said the post might start a debate, so naturally I chimed in and started a debate that slammed the idea of Global Warming. Here is the post I submitted:

Ok, I'm game. I'll start the debate.

This is ludicrous. Global warming is the biggest socialistic attack on capitalism in a hundred years, next to the Communist regimes of the last century.

To think that mere humans can affect the temperature of the Earth is ludicrous. It is the height of pride to think that we can swing the mean temperature of an entire world.

And think of the solution: petroleum based economies of the world (the capitalist countries, the successful countries) must halt their activities while the third world countries can expand their economies with a separate standard regarding the use of fossil fuels. I.e., they can use them and we must curtail them.
That is BUNK!

We, the leaders of the capitalistic world must continue with our successful use of petroleum fuels to expand our economies. Petroleum fuels are not responsible for the so-called warming trends of our globe.

A single large volcano emits more CO2 than the entire annual output of all the world's fossil fuel utilization. Trees emit more CO2 than our cars do. There are other explanations for so-called global warming.

Don't fall for bad science! Remember the same originators of this argument also argue that a fetus is not a baby and thus can be destroyed for any reason under the sun. They argue for centralized governments that lend towards socialistic oligarchies.

They prey on guilty white, egocentric people who want to think they are the center of the world's problems. They try to paint SUV owners as evil bigots. They voted for Bill CLinton, for Pete's sake!!!! Heh, that last one was an attempt at humor.

You can have my gas guzzler when you pry the steering wheel from my cold, dead fingers.

It was a lovely memorial service

Well, we had a small memorial service for my grandmother. There was only me, my brother and sister and my oldest son, Chris and my daughter, Serenity. Father George presided over the memorial service and he was wonderful. He introduced himself to us before and was very warm and human when he gave his sermon about the hope of heaven and was very pleasant afterwards while we thanked him. I really wanted him to preside over the service and I am glad we got him.

Afterwards we went out to eat a late breakfast. We had the best time just talking about her and our childhood. It was a warm exchange of family love.

Funny how it takes things like funerals to get families to touch each other. We aren't the warmest of families but we have our moments. May the Lord strengthen our love that we would be more supportive of each other. And may he strengthen the love of your family and friends, dear reader.

How to get a $400 a month raise.

I got a 395.00 a month raise!. I'm increasing my hours an extra 3 hours a week to 40 and will be getting a 10% shift differential with hardly a change to my current work schedule. I already work a split shift, 4 hours in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. With the new schedule I will come in an hour later in the afternoon and may have to work either 8 or 10 hours on Saturday instead of the current 6 hours. Increasing my shift to 40 hours also increases my leave time back to the full time benefit of 23 days a year. They are looking to create a team of split shifters. Trying to entice a bunch of us to work the prime time of calling people mostly at home.

What a blessing. An answer to my prayers.... Gotta have the moolah.
