I guess the Afghans are just not ready for the real world!

While there is outrage and all sorts of mouthing off by the Afghans about the Koran burnings, there are an alarming amount of stories about the Afghan militia killing US, and other, soldiers. These asshats just don’t get it! And it appears that our government wants to continue dealing with these asshats on a normal level.

The patio is OPEN!

Party on the patio!

After a hard day of work i took a well deserved rest to officially open the patio! Fired up the tabletop grill, flipped out a couple of burgers and the festivities ring in the new season on the patio! And now it is time for a Captain and Cola. Actually a string of them. And since it is my patio here we go Daddy-O!

Tabletop grille for two!
A well deserved Captain and Cola!
A well deserved Captain and Cola!

Consider yourself informed! The patio is open! And I am not afraid to use it! Cheers all!

Spring has sprung … ish

Just relaxin! A great week ahead so they say. And for today it is a super one. Got the patio kinda sorta  cleaned up and rearranged for the coming season.  May do a full cleaning on the grille but for now I’m good. Spent the day outside, airing out the garage and tidying up the yard.  And even took time to eat  lunch on the patio with Snoop Dog.  Gotta work today but off tomorrow.  More to do then.

Cheers

 

Ostrara is Coming! Ostara is coming!

Again We Can Party Like a Pagan!

Not a pagan?  Well, you got your own options. But you may want to reflect on where they came from. Just sayin.

Ostara? Spring Equinox happens on March 20 at 1:14 am EDT.

Spring is coming!  This year in the Northern Hemisphere,  Spring Equinox happens on March 20 at 1:14 am EDT.  Most Pagans will be celebrating the beginning of spring, some under the name “Ostara”.  Unlike many Pagan holidays that have a history in Celtic tradition, the Celts did not observe this equinox.  Instead, Ostara comes to us from German tradition and is said to be named after the German goddess Eostre.More info

Look! All this celebrating at “Easter” / Ostara ain’t nothing new. Peple have been celebrating the Vernal Equinox since the beginning of time. The weather warms and the ground thaws, flowers emerge, yada, yada, yada. It’s got nothing to do with being a Christian, or whatever. It’s got everything to do with Spring! It is just celebrated in every culture differently and that’s that!

Every year at Ostara, everyone begins chatting about a goddess of spring known as Eostre. According to the stories, she is a Teutonic goddess associated with flowers and springtime, and her name gives us the word “Easter”, as well as the name of Ostara itself.

Personal note: Oh no not another pirated holiday! Yeppers! Christians naming an event after a Teutonic goddess?! Hey! What’s with that? Simple quiz. What were Christians, Muslims, Whatevers before [2000 years ago] they were Whatevers? PAGANS! Tada! That was an easy quiz wasn’t it? Some things are just hard to give up. Ain’t they!

For my buddies In Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated each year on March 17. St. Patrick is known as a symbol of Ireland, particularly around every March. One of the reasons he’s so famous is because he drove the snakes out of Ireland, and was even credited with a miracle for this. What many people don’t realize is that the serpent was actually a metaphor for the early Pagan faiths of Ireland. St. Patrick brought Christianity to the Emerald Isle, and did such a good job of it that he practically eliminated Paganism from the country.Good job Pat! Drinkin to ya!

All this just to say this. Happy Ostara! Happy Easter! Happy………  whatever! Let’s party!

Stepping up when we should be buzzing off!

Once again I say, it is really a constant annoyance to me that even when the Afghan government can’t seem to control it’s own people, they constantly kill and protest outsiders, that in a time of disaster the US is a major contributor to their efforts despite the asshat mentality of the locals. And we are the first ones to be labeled inhumane.
As far as I am concerned I really would not feel one bit bad if we didn’t contribute a damn thing!

UN says 145 ‘presumed dead’ in Afghan avalanche – Yahoo! News.

They just don’t get it! They are so wrapped up in being religious secular asshats they don’t have a clue how to function as a country. And it appears to me they don’t want to. So …. why bother? We got our own disasters here. Lots of homeless from the tornadoes. Are they helping us? NOPE!

Just one mans opinion.

Religious hypocrites show their faces again!

Once again the Catholic Church has put itself in the spotlight for being asshats!

God and his fanclubIt appears that the Catholic Church with all of its existing moral issues, and scandals, has once again allowed itself to be dictator and creative interpreter of the “good book”. This time over the gay / lesbian issue.

Lesbian Woman Denied Communion at Mother’s Funeral

As her elderly mother was dying, Barbara Johnson lay next to her on the hospital bed, reciting the “Hail Mary.” Loetta Johnson, 85, had been a devout Catholic, raising her four children in the church and sending them to Catholic schools.

At her mother’s funeral mass at the St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Gaithersburg, Md., a grieving Barbara Johnson was the first in line to receive communion. What happened next stunned her. The priest refused Johnson, who is gay, the sacramental bread and wine. “He covered the bowl with the Eucharist with his hand and looked at me, and said I cannot give you communion because you live with a woman and that is a sin in the eyes of the church,” Johnson told ABC News affiliate WJLA.

As a further evidence that the Churches of the world have out lived their usefulness and become tools by which to dictate social beliefs, THEIRS! And when a politician claims a religious affiliation….. Oh Boy! Stand By!

When a politician starts spouting off about how religious he is, for me at least, that throws up a big red flag as to his / her capability to distinguish between religion and general good. This country was founded on a freedom OF religion and it also carries the other side of freedom FROM religion. Not only are they aligned politically but then religiously too. Now you really get to mixing it up! And you thought it was problematic to get anything done before!

With these latest political circuses that are touring the country you may want to pay close attention to these goony birds that can’t seem to put their pants on the same way twice. And then they claim to be on the side of the working man. Pleeeeeese! All multimillionaires with nothing more than more of your money in their pockets! Working class? Not hardly!

As usual just one mans opinion, MINE!

Burning ANY state symbol is wrong!

Koran VS US Flag
It now appears that we, the US, have to apologize and suffer casualties over the burning of a significant “symbol” of a particular nation. While the burning of some copies of the Koran in Afghanistan, sparked a Afghan soldier to kill two American soldiers and flee into a crowd.

Obama expresses ‘deep regret’ over Koran burning

US President Barack Obama sent Afghan President Hamid Karzai a letter of apology over the burning of copies of the Koran overseen by a US officer at a US military base, Karzai’s office said Thursday. Obama said the incident was unintentional and pledged a full investigation, the president’s office said, as fierce anti-US protests swept the nation in which at least 14 people have died, including two American soldiers.

But if our US flag, a significant “symbol” of our nation, is burned or desecrated we are not entitled to do the same. Just how ignorant is that. And without apology at any time! Since when did they get to be so special? And on top of that the killing of the two AMERICAN soldiers. And at no time has there been any response from President Karzai for any investigation into this killing of American soldiers by one of his own ANA soldiers! Not an ordinary Afghan but a soldier in their Army!

AFP – Nine killed in Afghan protests over Koran burning

The US commander in Afghanistan, General John Allen, apologized and ordered an investigation, admitting that religious materials, including Korans “were inadvertently taken to an incineration facility”. Allen and US Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter called on Afghan President Hamid Karzai Wednesday to apologized again for the incident at Bagram airbase north of Kabul, the president’s office said. Karzai asked Allen to cooperate fully with a government investigation and told him to “make sure that such incidents do not happen again in future”, a statement said.Karzai also urged the US military to speed up a transfer to Afghan control of the controversial US-controlled prison at Bagram, sometimes known as Afghanistan’s Guantanamo Bay. “The sooner you do the transfer of the prison, the fewer problems and unfortunate incidents you will have,” the president told Carter.

You need to make a special note that President Karsai is doing all the talking about cooperation and what WE should do. Along with us apologizing for the incident. Doesn’t seem to be any concern on his part for the loss of life of the American soldiers.

What a pile of crap that is! Seems like we need to tell these asshats to bugger off!
