I Need Your Help

Posted in Uncategorized on July 7, 2009 by JumpOut

I’ve posted about this before, but I am having trouble coming up with stuff to post. I try to stay on the humorous side of things, but a big part of that is making over the top comparisons. It just seems that things have gotten so over the top, it’s hard to use hyperbole.

See, two years ago, saying that the President of the United States was going force government ownership of General Motors, and fire their CEO would have been viewed as an impossible exaggeration. Now, well, not so much.

Two years ago, saying that Congress was going to draft legislation creating government run health insurance, and tax businesses and individuals that didn’t participate would have seemed like partisan mud-slinging. Or to assert that the government is looking to regulate the carbon dioxide output of individuals would have seemed ridiculous. Now, nothing is ridiculous.

If I tell you to get ready for the camps, how can possibly see that as an exaggeration? Clearly, that’s the only place there is left to go, if you’ll pardon the pun. How can you now rule out the possibility that speech on radio, tv, and the internet will be regulated and censored?

So, how is Hopey Changiness™ working out for you? Discuss amongst yourselves.

Gone Fishin’

Today I’ll be fishing in the south Louisiana marshes. Hopefully the chance to slaughter and eat helpless creatures will get my creative juices flowing. Details to follow…

Finally, I’m Back!

Posted in Uncategorized on June 18, 2009 by JumpOut

Sorry it took so long folks. Between money issues, scheduling issues, and parts availability issues, this took a while. I apologize for being away so long. I thought up a hundred posts in the last couple weeks, unfortunately, I forgot them all.

If you sent an e-mail, or left a comment, I will try to get to them asap. I will be working all weekend, so this may take while. I am not sure why, but for some reason, my phone doesn’t recognize the security certificate from my blog, and as best I can tell, there is no way to fix the problem. This issue leads to thousands of “click ok if you want to continue” pages every time a page from my blog loads. That means a thousand from the front page, a thousand from the sign in page, a thousand for the dashboard page, a thousand for the new post page, a thousand for the new post page after publishing a post, and a thousand if I want to go back to the main page to ensure the post posted properly. My stylus quit, and gave me the finger after the last time I posted from my phone, so I have been S.O.L.

Anywho, I hope to be back to posting regularly soon. I hope y’all have a good weekend, and again, I apologize.

After clicking through three thousand messages asking me if I want to access this website on my phone, I bring you an update. Apparently my fan on my computer has crapped out completely. I have a friend looking at it, and it should be fixed by the beginning of next week.

Computer Problems Again

I am having computer problems. Not sure what is wrong. I typed this on my phone. Phone sucks for blogging because it doesn’t trust the security certificate from wordpress. Be back when I get this figured out.

Wisdom in My Stead

Posted in Uncategorized on April 26, 2009 by JumpOut

The Roanoke Cop brings you Paul Harvey’s Policeman

The Things Worth Believing In brings you The Magpul Website. Much wisdom at the top of that page.

Humor and Satire from Radioactive Liberty

And since it’s Sunday, a prayer from my Policeman’s Bible provided by Dan Lovin:

Our Father who art in Heaven

In a few minutes I will assume my daily beat. Facing the unknown, but being closer to Thee than ever before

Hallowed be Thy name

Even in the face of death and crime, Thou art everywhere to guide me. I will fear no evil. Thy rod and Thy staff comfort me.

Thy will be done

Thy will, not mine shall be done. Do not let me be selfish. O Lord, if you choose to take me, let me die as a man in order that another may live.

On Earth as it is in Heaven

Let me be a guide here on Earth to those who are misguided and lost. Help me to hlep those who are in need of help in order that we all may be worthy of Thy kingdom in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread

Especially those who live in poverty and misery

And forgive us our trespasses

I am a sinner. O Lord, let me never forget that I am no better than my fellow men. Let me never forget that by Thy grace I am on the right side of the law.

As we forgive those who trespass against us

Forgive those that despise me and the uniform which represents law and order. Forgive them for they do not know better. I have forgiven them.

Lead us not into temptation

Make me strong for I am only human. Deliver me from hate and jealousy and from wanting something I should not have in in your eyes.

For thine is the kingdom and power and the glory

Let me be no judge or jury. Let me be impartial. Let me be just and fair.

Forever and ever, Amen

I am still around. I have a few post ideas I’ve come up with during this long layoff. I should have those up no later than tomorrow. I also think I am done with Twitter. It’s just one more thing eating into my free time, and I don’t think It generated any traffic. Unless y’all enjoy coming here and reading my messages (I refuse to call anything I do tweeting), I’m getting rid of Twitter. So, how was your week?

Oh Noez!!!!

Long, heavy work week ahead. I will probably not be around much. I apologize in advance.

CNN Using BS Copyright Argument to Bump Video

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on April 19, 2009 by JumpOut

According to Patterico and Jim Treacher, CNN is claiming a video posted by Founding Bloggers is copyright infringement©. It shows the clip of Susan Roesgen acting like a stupid beyotch at the Chicago Tea Party, and Founding Bloggers video of what happened next. Basically, she graduated from being a stupid bitch, to being a…ahem…cupid stunt. Patterico and Treacher are encouraging everyone to download a copy of this video, and upload it to their YouTube accounts to keep this thing going. Who am I to argue with huge bloggers like Patterico and Treacher? I must obey. My little contribution to the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

To Twitter, or not to Twitter

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on April 15, 2009 by JumpOut

What say you? I typically reject fads, and other things that “everybody” do. I’ve found that, in general, if “everybody” is doing it, it’s stupid. This Twitter thing is intriguing to me though. I often have thoughts for my blog that run through my head at work. Usually I forget about them as the day wears on, but with Twitter, I can let y’all know what I’m thinking while at work. I think I’ll try this for a while, and see how y’all like it. If you like it, I’ll keep it. If not, I’ll junk it.

You can follow my Twitterers or tweets or whatever here or in the box in the sidebar. Good idea? Bad idea? Tell me what you think.
