Who ordered the lobotomy?

Recently, I have been worrying some and perhaps the universe answered me in the gifting of a worry stone. As a friend mentioned: ‘The Universe is letting you know it loves you and not to worry!’
That is so not ME! I even began to research how to make them out of my own rocks as every one has their own metaphysical angle. I tend to like agates and jasper’s so I will throw in this example.
One of my own favorite stones are ‘Snake skin Agates’ and they are also respected for being a “searching stone.” The suggestion being that before hunting for beach rocks I should have drilled one into a bracelet or necklace. 
It helps you to find things! Sadly my friend Al suggested that rather than finding a gold coin on the sidewalk you might more readily find or step onto a dog turd.
That brings me to my rocky off-topic commentary regarding present day politics.
Harry Reid, Boner and the administration have much to pay for. In the meantime fearing the onslaught of the wheel chaired and disabled the government has begun building a custom made new building for POTUS to live in. There will be no further evacuation for the first family. The former “first black president” Bill Clinton was involved in the design. Our president “Renegade.” will simply have to tough it out.
Sad but not true – In cost saving measures Administration officials ordered Park personnel to turn off Yosemite Falls in California. When asked about the rationale of this decision, the Dept. of the Interior responded by saying it was necessary so as to redistribute its natural wonders to the other fifty-five States. And despite Canada’s protest America also turned off its half of Niagara Falls. Old Faithful was also plugged with a red white and blue suppository. Damn, that’s one hard pill to swallow.

A worse yet shutdown! Not only was NASA’s astronomy picture of the day not available, but stargazing has been banned as unlawful and all internet references to astrology have been expunged by NSA.
Until the budget is resolved we have all been advised to stay indoors and stop praying to the stars.
The U.S. postal service has been given the job of delivering those celestial replies to your door. Fed Ex if needed sooner.
I wrote my friend in P.A. that before Oct. 17th. I have been stocking up on lead, light bulbs and toilet paper. I encourage you do the same. I even got a special on “Fukushima” bulbs and the clerk was kind enough to sell me some iodine. Despite needing an extra eye in this time of turmoil, wise positioning would have it in the back of the head, not mounted like an extra headlight between the other two.

At least the squirrel found his way to Texazistan. I still continue to hope that we sell Florida and Texas off! So far Spain and Mexico have not agreed to the sale price. Canada did express an interest in Alaska but only if we ratify the Keystone pipeline from Alberta.

BTW Putin has been put forward for the Nobel Peace Prize. Thank you Syria!

Oh, and did I forget to mention that Waste Management has put in a bid for the Grand Canyon!

Now I return to my abode.

Now I return to my abode.

Disclaimer: 10/13 In no way do I wish to disparage the esteemed members (think anatomy) of our elected officials. I am sure that most of them are gigantic. Nor would I ever suggest that http://www.naturalnews.com/Fukushima.html ” is incompetent. I also think I restrained myself in doctoring/or faking photos of Waste Management filling up the Grand Canyon. My quaint rock home, may soon be replaced by the local overpass … as is the case for many Americans. God Bless all those who so nobly serve us!

EDIT! It ain’t the Park Rangers!
“One angry Park Service ranger in Washington told the Washington Times, “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

Who ordered the lobotomy? — 5 Comments

  1. Well, thank goodness that humor is alive and well in these miserable times we live in. This was a hoot and I loved it!!! Your rock home is amazing —I hope others will have a chance to enjoy this site.

  2. We are now three weeks into this and I do expect consequences. Least of all another recession, interest rate hikes and worse. I am of two minds on this. Get rid of debt, stash some cash (and not in a bank) as I suspect S.S. benefits and Medicare payments will be delayed at the very least.

    Mark Twain had another thought. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

    Most Americans are also ready to throw out all members of Congress and replacing them with new merchandise. Considering the Ted Cruzes we did just elect, I think this would be a mistake.

    Mark Twain had two other good quotes. “The trouble ain’t that there is too many fools, but that the lightning ain’t distributed right.”

    “Suppose you were an idiot and suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself”

    Trouble is that most Americans do NOT vote and when they do it is often done as a reaction. We do have good members in Congress and and they should be complimented and encouraged. Too many moderate voices are leaving in disgust and we will have allowed the hijackers to win.

    I also remind everyone that Fukushima is not going to go away. By air and by water the Pacific Rim is in danger. We will soon be harvesting fish with lesions or three eyes. Instead of censor we reward Japan with the Olympics. Go figure! Who ordered the lobotomy indeed!

  3. I really need to return to the humor. Months ago I got this forwarding link to a coffee commercial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BMUC4Yb4z4al
    Schümos Coffee Commercial

    Please check it out. It near put me off tea bags forever. Considering the tea party and what those douche bags are doing to their own party, this commercial says it all. That said, I have slowly returned to my morning tea.

  4. Thank you for your response—All true, loved the Mark Twain reflections!!! Left me so depressed until I checked out the Coffee commercial—what a hoot that was and yes so fitting for the tea party and shame on that terrible person who sent you that commercial and wrecked your morning tea drinking enjoyment—so pleased you have been able to get back to your morning tea—which you may not be able to afford if the shut down keeps on going—heading to the bank myself to clear out my funds—-the mattress is looking good. Again, thank you for your views, comments and humor.

  5. Things just got stupider on the Olympic Peninsula.

    What really pisses me off is that this no longer local paper does not allow comments unless you have a “Facebook” membership. Google, Microsoft and NSA surveillance is bad enough but to have to join Facebook to make a comment to local news. That is ridiculous!

    I asked them to print this in letters to the editor …. or whatever, Rants and Raves.

    In regards to the fines levied by Park Rangers … I so hope the women go to the court and challenge this. While there, some people should also file a class action lawsuit against the govt. for violating their National Park Pass that they have paid for! Breach of contract!

    All too soon even the State Discovery Pass’s might become void if and when the govt. decides eh “the parks and beaches are too precious to allow people in.” All these fees have also closed off the public lands for those with limited incomes. Going to Hurricane Ridge is now a very expensive proposition. As for the Dungeness Spit, I stopped going there after they put a fee structure in. Soon it will be like N.J. with metered turnstiles to step onto any beach.

    The only thing left missing in the article would be the Park Ranger siphoning gas from the cars to save the govt. some loot. The signage posted by the govt. is poor indeed and I agree with the women that ““Because of the federal government shutdown, this National Park Service facility is closed,”

    I too would mistake that toilet services might be in jeopardy … but “facility” ??? Better wordage might have been “this access to parking or to trails have now been closed! Fines will be levied!

    These folks fined will now have to drive for two hours to get to the Federal Courthouse to appeal this act of stupidity.
