Somewhere in The Antelope Valley

Upright and breathing. Good thing.

Rant 00002 and other sundries

Posted by retiredpo1 on 02/27/2010

I caught part of the “health care summit” on a break at work. Talk about a joke! Does the cinc/totus have any f***ing clue about what is the feeling out here in the real world. The space inside the beltway is it’s own little world, after all.It resembles Helion Prime from the “Chronicles of Riddick” more than the country it is the “center” of. Even with raw data staring them in the face, the three stooges, obama, reid and the wicked witch of the west still want to socialize one-sixth of the US economy. And help a large number of the citizenry to the grave, since they would cost to much. Rat Bastards anyway!

Sorry for the slacking off. I has been one of them weeks with broke airplanes and lots of flights. As the new guy and grade ten I am the designated first up on the list to prep, launch and recover. Then is the preflight/basic post flight, fuel and secure the aircraft for the day. Keeps one busy. Several mornings a week I start with the lights on out on the line. It is has an overhead shade and lighting!

At least it is the weekend! But so much for hitting the weeds with roundup. It is raining. Yes it does rain in the High Desert. There is still snow on the tops of the San Gabriel Mountains between us and the LA Basin/San Fernando Valley Metro Mess.

And just for Snigs. Keep on Truckin”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rant 00001

Posted by retiredpo1 on 02/21/2010

Seems that obammy and the forty thieves are still going to shove that pile of shit known as healthcare “reform” down our throats. Whether we the people want it or not. Since he has been doing such a wonderful job with the help of the wicked witch, dirty harry and the rest of the flying monkeys.

The latest to set me off is the part where we will be required to purchase health insurance. Since when does anyone have this authority. And I know damn good and well there is nothing in The Constitution that allows for this. I spent a large part of my life with a pocket sized one on my person. I also did on five separate occasions raise my right hand and swear to “support and defend the Constitution of The United States, against all enemies, foreign and domestic and to bear true faith and allegiance to the same.”

It would appear that the current cinc and his gang of thieves are derelict in that they too, have a similar line in their oath of office, and are blatantly ignoring it. It would be realistic of me to state that the cinc and his cronies, enablers and the majority of the congress are domestic enemies of The Constitution of The United States.

And yes, I have done more for the Republic in a single day than the cinc, speaker and majority leader have done in their collective lives. It is a matter of public record. Starting with……….I showed up every single day required unless on authorized leave or transit.

A Sunny Day in Cal City

Posted by retiredpo1 on 02/14/2010

New solar sidewalk lights

I put in the solar ones today, as it was a fabulously sunny and warm day here in the Desert.

The Patio!

The Patio at the Casa de Sharon y Glenn. The BBQ got a work out later in the day. Filet Mignons and Lobster Tails for dinner. OH MY! 8)

I can’t call it theĀ Veranda, as my buddy Buck at Exile in Portales already has that covered.

Looking north

The Tehachapi Mountains near the Red Rock Canyon State Park. It is a short drive from here. Ain’t the desert pretty in the sunshine? šŸ˜‰
